PR: Judging the Judges

Posted on September 23, 2011

All right, you judgmental bitches. Its your turn to be assessed. Sit still and LIKE IT.

Well…he’s Adam Lambert. How do you score that? He’s dressed like Adam Lambert. That’s the schtick. Nothing wrong with the look and it suits him just fine, but it’s as much a uniform as Kors’ black t-shirt and sports coat. We’re abstaining from scoring him. Mainly because his fans are frightening on Twitter.

“What do you mean, you’re “surprised” to find out he’s such a good judge, @tomandlorenzo? Adam Lambert is a wonderful human being and performer who blahblahblah140charactersBLAH!”

“@tomandlorenzo, why aren’t you commenting on @adamlambert??!?!?!?”

“You better not say anything mean about @adamlambert, @tomandlorenzo! I LOVE him and he might fuck me someday!!!!!!”

Oh, fine. Score 7/10. A little shaking up of the status quo would have been nice to see.

Aquilano Rimondi top, Balenciaga pants, vintage belt, and Alexander Wang shoes.

She must have felt she needed the shiny if she’s was going to be sitting between Heidi and Adam Lambert. A fantastic, TV-ready top paired with neutral, flattering pants and a kickass pair of shoes. The lady knows what she’s doing. Score: 8/10.

The black one-shoulder mini-dress is becoming as much a uniform for her as Kors’ getup is for him. Not that she can’t rock the look, but we’re really tired of seeing it from her. You’re the one that’s supposed to bring the glamour to the judging panel, Heidi. And we’re sorry, but your butterfly jewelry is tacky. Score: 5/10. A little effort next time, mkay?

AND THE EDITOR WINS AGAIN! SUCK IT, ROCKSTARS AND SUPERMODELS!

    It seemed as though Glambert was just spouting the Duchess’s sloppy seconds.  Nina meanwhile revealed a surprising effeminophobia.  She seemed to dislike certain outfits because they were too androgynous.  She doesn’t quite grasp the whole “Rock and Roll” thing, it would seem–and the seventies Rock thing in particular.  The notion that anyone could look at any of those bandmates and see a femme is really astonishing.

      if you are over 25, you should avoid any clothing or jewelry with a butterfly on it. Or a kitten. Unless you are over 80 and don’t give a shit anymore, then it’s unarguably cute.
      However, thank GOD these designers didn’t put a damn howling wolf on anything. No one of any age should wear such a thing. (watch, Heidi will come out with one next week and then it will be hip)

        In general, Heidi dresses too young for her age and “position” in life. I think she has issues that need to be addressed.

          I think the butterfly earrings are tacky because this motif is just not trendy anymore but I disagree that people can’t dress younger than their age.

            I didn’t say that people can’t dress younger than their age, in fact, I do, and I get by because I look a little younger than my age. What I meant to say, what I should have said is that I’d like to see “grown-up Heidi” once in awhile, not just “starting-to-age-in-a-too-short-skirt Heidi” ALL THE TIME. I’m only taking about a couple of inches here and there.

        Speaking of kittens, I recently worked at a minority-owned company and when someone asked me what puff paint (they had gotten a thank-you note from my 3yo nephew covered in puff paint) was I said, “white people use it to put kitty-cats on sweatshirts.”

    Adam dressed as he always does.  His jacket is too tight.  6/10
    He was a good judge last night and I wasn’t surprised.  He understands fashion as a way to communicate without making a sound.

            I love big earrings. I’m partial to large hoops, as the dangly ones tend to get caught in my hair. And on my clothes. And on the cats. I’m hopeless. :-)

            I’m really not a jewelry person, and I seldom wear earrings and a necklace and a bracelet. I feel like I’m trying too hard. So I  generally stick with big, lightweight earrings.

            Oh, and I’m as white as can be, so it’s not just a black girl thing. I wish I could wear dreds without looking like a poser.

    Adam Lambert – Looks really good. I do like his personal style, even if it is a bit repetitive. He’s very handsome and it helps that he has those dazzling white teeth and beautiful eyes. I’m with you guys; I was also surprised at how good a judge he was. Didn’t come across as a knucklehead, which is always nice. 

    Nina – I love that top for her. She doesn’t do sparkly very often, but she should. This is an excellent example of how to do shiny in a classy way. She looks great. LUV the shoes.

    Heidi – Yeah, she needs to shake it up. This kind of thing is so expected from her. I think it was the first or second episode that she wore this fabulous long dress and she looked amazing. Heidi, we want to see more of that! Enough with the slutty dresses! Oy!
    Of course, she has that amazing face, so there’s that. I’m digging the ponytail and side part.

      Adam might have been a better client for this project….Corky St. Clair and mustache bear could each push their entire product lines……and the designers might have been forced to move beyond Toughskins….and Olivier wouldn’t have had the size issue and been able to dress Adam as a pretty-pretty-pony.

    Adam Lambert (stans) fans on the Internet are frightening, period. I’m an American Idol viewer who reads a lot of entertainment websites’ recap of the show. During Lambert’s season (’09), you could not tell his fans nothing. To them, he is the next coming of Jesus Christ. Talented guy, don’t get me wrong. But his fans made it difficult for me to be a fan.

    Anywho, I thought Adam looked good. Really liked Nina’s whole outfit. Heidi should trash that ugly butterfly earring. Immediately.

            Look, I like Adam Lambert — for one thing, I kinda dig anyone that determined to do their own thing, which he had to know wasn’t going to help him on AI that much.  (Not exactly a bastion of individualism there.)  And he seems like a sweet guy.  I approve. 

            But if you aren’t a crazy rabid fan who scares people, you really shouldn’t choose responses like this when someone is talking about that group of fans.  I have several friends who really liked Twilight, but I’m also aware that there are some total psychos who are into it, so I don’t feel compelled to step up and defend all other Twilight fans.

            And as a tip: saying that you support someone and “WHATEVER he does” and referring to yourself as a “true and faithful fan(s)” does not make you sound sane.  I’m sure that you are, and that you’re just trying to defend someone you like who you think is being unfairly slammed.  But as a rhetorical strategy, it has flaws.

            Oh and as for the “standard” comment?  His look last night WAS standard FOR HIM.  There wasn’t anything surprising about what he was wearing.

            I’ve been reading all these anti-Adam comments here and I am huge fan of his but I began to realize that the very people who were complaining about his rabid fans had launched a preemptive strike. What YOU said was thoughtful and spot on…yet you see how silly the non-fans act over your post? Methinks THEY are the ones with a problem.
             Adam is always fashionable. The other judges as well as the designers had nothing but high praise for him. He was articulate, informed, thoughtful and humorous. An all around nice guy who gets knocked around by cretins who know nothing about him and don’t bother to find out.
             The very word “fan” is derived from “FANatical” ….so? Elvis, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, etc..had (and HAVE!) many “cray” fans. Just as with Adam Lambert, that made no difference to the TRUE talent of the artist.
             As for those who are unable or unwilling to accept him, that is their loss. I’ve met him in person and he is charming, very aware and extremely down to earth and genuine. Haters gonna hate though. ;D

    And to think that Project Runway used to be a DESIGN COMPETITION.  Fancy that….  How quaint, and  how loong, long ago.</.

    Thinking ahead to the blog, I was paying attention and I thought Heidi’s dress was well chosen for the shoulder detail. It looked good in her closeups. Nina always looks good but I look at her face, not her clothes, except at one moment she pulled on it (hiked up a shoulder? just maybe made a gesture?) so that it flashed and sparkled and distracted me.  I have managed to avoid Adam Lambert until now but I must say he is very, very pretty.

  • http://profiles.google.com/marteani Barbara Guttman

    I had to look up Adam Lambert because I have no idea who he is and why he’s judging a “rock star challenge.”  This is definitely his look, and it works for him.  But in every photo of him I found, I find him to be poorly coifed and orange.  It all feels a little too Hot Topic to me, though I like the pants.

    I give him a 4/10.

    I thought Adam was a great judge for this challenge.  He didn’t really suit Sheepdog’s style, but, he certainly has been in the industry and has something valuable to contribute.  He looks good here channeling goth, punk, Robert Smith.  Love Nina’s top!  She had her glam on for the rockstars.  How out of place were Michael and Nina in this challenge?  Watching their facial expressions while the band played.  It was the BEST!  Oh, and maybe I’m tacky, but I like Heidi’s butterfly jewelry.

      I don’t know who he is, but there is nothing goth, punk or Robert Smith about that look. Not in any form I know anyway, there may be influences from them but they’re sanitised beyond recognition.

        My thought was “oh, my… That one is too short for you, isn’t it sweetheart ?” I can picture her after the episode verbally abusing her stylist in german for giving her a dress that was so ill fitting that she had to pull at it.

    Adam Lambert looks tragic. I haven’t seen that many tacky clothes on telly in quite a while. Also I haven’t got the first idea who that bloke is. Not that you need any kind of qualification to be a guest judge on this show, as demonstrated by Kim Kardashian a couple of weeks ago, but usually one has at least heard of the guest judges on this side of the pond.

    Lambert always looks like Goth Vader. Never watched Idol so I don’t give a fig about him one way or the other. Nina is OK, but she’s been hitting the shiny metallic/neutrals a lot lately and it’s getting to be a bit of a snooze. Why don’t we ever give her grief about pulling an Aniston with the hair? There is not one strand of Nina’s hair that ever changes. Is it her version of Wintour? And Heidi’s outfits are super boring this season. The only time she stood out was on the stilts.

    • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

      Oh, he is not Vader at all!  There’s a giant difference, the only thing in common is they both wear black!  When did you ever see Vader sparkle or in eyeliner?

        I called him Goth Vader, not Darth Vader.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          I assumed it was in reference to Darth Vader, however — unless you were using it as a reference to “Father” in Dutch, which would make less sense since, to my knowledge, Adam Lambert has no children.

          If my initial assumption was correct, then my comment still stands as I see no similarity between Adam Lambert and Darth Vader, so terming him “Goth Vader” doesn’t make a lot of sense.

          I also see very little Goth in Adam Lambert.  His attitude is far too cheerful, and his look isn’t quite on for Goth — going Goth requires far more than just a preference for black.  For one, his skin is much too orange rather than the deep paleness preferred by Goths.

            He’s certainly glitter, but there’s nothing punk about his look.  It’s the what’s-hot-on-trend-black look.  What disappoints me is that it’s bland.  It’s all very on trend for that style (right down to the bird skull necklace), but it’s not put together in an interesting way.  There’s not enough contrast in textures, or there’s no real statement piece, it’s just….it’s an all black outfit and it’s not bad.  But it’s still just a 4/10

            I’d probably raise that score a point or two if he ditched the ill-fitting and distracting jacket.

      THANK YOU!  I was wondering where those (sadly difficult to see) bitchin’ pants came from.  They were the only part of his outfit I found interesting.  The cardigan may have been a nice piece, and it may even have paired well with the pants, but the ill-fitting, overdesigned jacket killed the look for me.

        I’ve never understood why he gives his hair that grey affect at the tips (and by “tips” I mean the entire top half of that ‘do), but it seems to be a thing for him. The hairstyle itself cracks me right the hell up. I swear he uses sugar water to keep it in place (an old trick hairdressers used to use to mold hair for competitions and at hair shows). It’s been compared to the Heat Miser by many people. I don’t know what the Heat Miser is, but I’ll take everyone’s word for it until I get around to googling it.

        It’s been done to death, but it works for Adam, so I can’t bust on him for it.

        He can pull off a lot of looks though, and he did when he was on Idol. And you have to look closely because of all the make-up, but he’s exceptionally good looking. Actually, he’s beautiful.

        Too bad he tends to screech when he just needs to sing. It’s a sad and irritating misuse of talent.

          Oh, I agree he’s good looking.  When the camera zoomed in on him I was thinking “Wow, he is handsome!  Look at those blue eyes!”  The maiden aunt in me wanted to urge him to wash that stuff off his face so we could see it. :)  I imagine he could pull off a lot of looks — I can only comment on what I saw on Thursday night because I don’t think I’ve ever set eyes on him before. 

          • http://beautyforrealgirls.blogspot.com/ accidental housewife

            This non-maiden-but-still-interfering-aunt is with you on washing off that make-up. I get it for when he’s performing, but he doesn’t need it all the time. It certainly doesn’t need to be that heavy. I think he has bad skin and tries to cover it with gallons of foundation, but at some point, it does the opposite.

            I love his eye make-up just because I love heavy eye make-up. On a professional level, I really admire it. It’s beautifully done.

            It’s hard to tell by looking at him here, but he does the old fashioned matinee idol look really well.

    Love the shirt on Nina, but I don’t think she needs the belts like she thinks she does. That light brown belt kinda ruins it for me, just as that black belt ruined the flower printed dress she wore a few weeks back. The pants are nice, similar to what she wore last week, only they look better with a better top such as this. Plus at this point, I’m a bit bored at looking at the same exact hairstyle I’ve seen for almost 9 complete seasons. 7/10

I agree with initial assessment of Adams “uniform”. He has successfully created an image for himself but it would be nice if  he added something new to his mix and match blacks. I am kind of surprised that Kor’s look is so ordinary. The judge in gold studs seemed a bit old to be rocking the shredded disco ball look. And someone needs to give Heidi a sandwich or at least put the other sleeve back on and lower the hem so the collar bones and knees are not the prominent features. She has a pretty smile and face.

    Nina’s shirt is pretty fab, but she’s wearing Stephen’s “dance lingerie” pants!  HOW can you give her an 8 for that?!  I would give her a 7.5.  She should’ve paired that top with a sleek pair of trousers or jeans, instead.

    Oh, and what the hell was that one comment from Nina? “He looks feminine… he’s supposed to look like a LEADER.” Hey, screw you lady.

    • margaret meyers

      She said it was too feminine for h i m, which was something Ewan had previously said while working with Olivier, and Tim agreed with Ewan.  Ewan had said ‘i’m not an adrogynous lead singer; I’m too big to do that.’  I think Ewan was being savvy about his stage presence, but he’s wrong about purple — it always looks good on a redhead or strawberry blond, and it’s a great stage color.

    Oh look, Snore-Glam, Soft-Glam and a Glambert.

    Boys do you have any idea if Heidi’s make up on the show gets done by those same LOreil people? Because I have to say they do a fantastic job every single week and I don’t remember ever giving them props here on the blog, so there it is.

    Enjoyed the judging, especially the after videos.  Adam Lambert and Michael Kors were funny.

    Adam Lambert’s hair reminds me of Heat Miser and I can’t get that thought out of my head!

    Well Heidi is……(snore)…zzz.
    And I don’t know who Adam, Lambert is. He looks like Adam Ant.
    And you now officially know how old AKA is.
    Nina: I continue to worship you. How does she strike that exact right balance of ‘I thought about it, but not that hard, cause it comes naturally to me, because I am so special.’ I’m just going to go out tomorrow and try to copy her and hope one day I come close to her level of style and chic. sigh.

      Adam Ant was original!

    that shirt of nina’s is a knockout. much much better on her than on the model, especially w/ the shoulder treatment.

    The Glambert fanatics, or sparkle cows as VFTW would say, are a scary bunch.  Best to tread lightly with that lot.  ;)

    Nina looks amazing again, as she should since fashion is her livelihood. 

    Heidi’s dress looks like a PR loser with a Piperlime belt.  blah.

    Those earrings are just one of the reasons why Heidi should stick to modeling/judging and not designing.

  • Anonymous

    Someone else may have said this but I’m so bored with Nina’s color (or rather, noncolor) choices. I’ll take Heidi in a boring black design, wimpy hair with pretty cool butterfly earrings over yet ANOTHER beige top from Nina. Nope. I don’t give her an 8 for that. 6 maybe.

    Adam Lambert was a judge?  Wow, this show has officially jumped the shark.

    Honestly, Nina bores me.  Same hair, same neutral color palette, same zzzz.  Considering she has access to the most vast wardrobe around, her clothes are completely forgettable.

    Is Heidi’s belt causing that pleating at the waist, or is that a feature of the dress?

  • Anonymous

    Lambert reminds me of Liza and Joanne Worley had a son…corny
    Nina bores me. She looks pretty and such but dull  most of the time. I agree she takes it this week for sure though
    Heidi: could not be more expected.

    Can Nina ever do something different with her hair?? Ponytail? Parted on the side? Pulled back? She has a beautiful head of hair but she wears it like a limp blanket on her shoulders. She takes chances with het clothing choices but is risk averse with her hair and makeup !

  • Damien Washington

    You need to revise Adam’s score to 0. It’s because of his face that terriers like Josh decided it was okay to make your face up like that in daylight, outside of Chelsea bars. He oughta do time.

    Wow, TLo weren’t kidding about the Adam Lambert fans, were they? 

    That said, his music is really fun to listen to at the gym, and under all the make-up he’s very cute.  I just wish he didn’t reproduce ’80′s goth glam quite so literally.    

  • Anonymous

    It may be a uniform but boy, that Frau wears it well.  And I rather like the earrings: they’re fun and different.  And her hair is at least combed, even if it’s in a simple ponytail.  I hate Nina’s haircut and style, which I think does not help her look at all.  Everything you said about Nina’s outfit is true but it’s just such a bloody SAFE look.  I say, 6/10 for Nina and 7/10 for Heidi.

    Yes, Nina takes it again. Adam Lambert looks like he’s closely related to Teresa from NJ Housewives although he was a good judge. Heidi is Heidi and that’s never a winning look anymore. 

  • Anonymous

    And yet again Heidi looks like she has no waist. How can you be Heidi Klum and allow this to happen to you? And the butterfly earrings? They look so cheap. Adam did a good job as a judge and I thought he looked fine. I agree this is pretty much standard for him, but no problems.
    Heidi 4/10
    Nina 7/10
    Adam 7/10

    Did one of Heidi’s kids insist on her wearing that butterfly? She looks cheap.
    Nina bores me.
    Don’t know the Adam chap, well kind of gleaned a bit from the comments. Looks like your standard shined up, sanitised take on 80s fashion that misses the rebellious point of the originals.

    Adam Lambert’s skin looks orange.  :/

    C’mon Heidi.  Butterflies are NOT rock-n-roll.  It’s a travesty the way she dressed for such a challenge….when you have the world of fashion at your fingertips.  Balmain, anyone???

    Regarding MOST comments about Adam Lambert here: MEOW! Someone throw these B**tchs some catnip!
    He IS a rocker. His shoulders are wide (hence the “tightness” in the jacket shoulders with certain movements) and his hair is to DIE FOR thick and luxurious. And for the record, I hate Idol. It was my own musician hubby channel-surfing who first caught his audition and we decided to see what he had. He has POWERFUL pipes! Yes, we are now huge fans. Of both his performing and of HIM personally. And for the record, he has been performing in theater productions since age ten. He has had YEARS of vocal training as well.His sense of fashion is rapidly becoming legendary.His style suits HIM perfectly.He also has the innate ability to not take himself (or his critics) too seriously. That is charmingly disarming.
    Some of the comments here truly make me laugh….I can imagine many of you furiously typing away in your housecoats and sloppy, ill-fitting Walmart cast-offs, Haha!
     No…he doesn’t “walk on water” but he has raised more money for the Charity Water Project than any other celebrity..over $330,000. That’s just one of his many causes. He also is the BEST DRESSED male on almost ALL Red Carpet events.
     In short, Project Runway chose the PERFECT judge for this “dress the rocker” challenge. KUDOS to the producers and to Lambert for accepting the challenge.
     I must say, in closing, that his detractors are every bit as fanatical as his fans. But great art is often polarizing, n’est pas? ;D

      That’s no excuse.  He can afford a good tailor.

    My cats sometime climb up and play with my earrings. I love jewelry. I lean toward earrings and rings because I think necklaces are a bit much when I’m wearing large earrings. My dreds have finally reached the length wear I can be versatile with them. I can pin them up in a bun, add hair jewels for dress, set them on perm rods for a curly look or just let them hang.

  • Anonymous

    Good scoring. I pretty much agree. I might score Lambert a little higher. He looks pop-star glam without being over the top, which I think is hard to do. Heidi’s earrings are silly. They remind me of those decorative hair combs lots of wore in the 80s.

      Me, neither. At first I thought it was a scar.

    As always, Heidi looks worse in the screencaps that she seemed to during the show.  At least she’s gotten away from the scary makeup and hair (somewhat scruffy being better than overly severe, in my book).  However I think butterfly jewelry is for girls 10 and under.

    Adam Lambert – I’m not familiar enough with him to know his look, but if that’s his uniform, that’s his uniform.  Still, I’d tighten up the hair.

    Nina – What’s to say?  Nice job, as usual.

    Thank you for addressing the fact that Adam’s fans are making it impossible to discuss this week’s show. Like… if you say something about the actual clothes that were designed …

    “WTF WHY AREN’T YOU TALKING ABOUT ADAM HE WAS SOOOOO GOOD ZOMG”

    Vom.

    Also, it pissed the hell out of me when he said he could do better than Anya did on this challenge. I don’t even LIKE Anya and I was still like, oh girl. No.

    I know he’s a rock star and all but can I just say HOW MUCH I HATE BLACK FINGERNAIL POLISH?????  I hate it so much and especially on a man.  Drives me nuts.

      Oh my God! Total agreement. It reminds me of being a kid painting my fingers with tempera paint! It just seems like cheap/ignorant shock value.

    When I saw Adam Lambert on the show, my first reaction after my super excitement was: I wonder what TLo will think of his look…if they say anything mean, I will cut them. I’m kidding mostly but I totally laughed when I read what you wrote here. He DOES have some crazy fans (and the sane ones do make fun of them). Not his most original look but he does enough shaking up of the status quo outside this look. And I had the same reaction to Nina’s look: she must be stepping up on her shiny if Adam’s sitting next to her.

    Love Nina’s outfit and I want it right now.  The great thing is–it looks like even a chubby Midwesterner such as myself could wear it.

    I don’t think Heidi’s dress fits very well. She kept tugging at the hem when she was standing there. Adam Lambert is kind of too pretty for me to criticize. I thought he looked cute, in a sort of updated Duran Duran/A-ha kind of way. And boys in eyeliner make me a little weak in the knees. Must be a throwback to my 80s teenaged self.

     You guys tore into Heidi! I loved what she had on, even her “tacky earrings”.  I’m not too crazy about her upturned shoes tho.

    Lambert made a fab judge.  They should keep him.  he had an opinion and wasn’t afraid to say when something looked silly.  His own look could use some help.
