Posted on September 22, 2011

Darlings, meet us at the international gate because we’re in a blue mood.

O2 Indigo Lounge at The O2 Dublin – Ireland, Dublin

Not that kind of blue mood. The kind of mood that says we should be sitting in a fabulous nightclub with flattering lighting in cool tones. It makes you look mysterious and desirable. It’s also good for hiding wrinkles. So we hear. We wouldn’t know.

Cut, cut. Stitch, stitch. Fight, fight.

We’re intrigued, however, because…

 

Miss Lambert will be joining us for the evening. Why is that intriguing? Because it’s a rock and roll menswear challenge and who better to judge that than a guy who digs rock and roll AND men?

 

Ooooh, girls. This has the potential to go cheesy really fast. Could be fun, though. Anyone remember the “I’m a GIRL on the VERGE of a NERVOUS BREAKDOWN” “rock and roll” challenge from Season 1 with Kate Hudson’s cousin? That freaking song was stuck in our heads for weeks.

So here’s your question of the week, and we’re going the bitchy route: Who do you want to see go home tonight? Come on, now. Bitter Kittens can’t be shy.

Wait. Let’s make this more difficult. Who ASIDE FROM JOSH do you want to see go home tonight? We’re going on the assumption that he’ll be kept in as long as possible and so should you.

      Precious Moments. If he squeaks by again I might have a rage stroke.

      Also I totally remember the rock challenge from season 1. I may have hunted down the album and have it in my iTunes…

        I agree. It’s time for Olyvuer to go.

        And now I have that song stuck in my head.

          Don’t be so sure. The lead singer wasn’t a willowy, petite boy with model proportions. Obviously since he didn’t fit into the box of Oliver’s expectations, it didn’t turn out well.

          • BerlinerNYC

            LOL. I had almost posted originally that he had better beware of MOOBS. God forbid he get a (hot musclebearish) guy who was bigger than his damned dress form. If he’s not auf’d tonight, I’ll fucking lose it. I don’t know if he’s getting the loser edit (I thought that last week), but he’s certainly getting the bratty-tantrum edit.

            • BerlinerNYC

              OMG thank GOD!!!!!! I was totally assuming the producers would have kept Precious Moments in the running for longer, even after all of that teasing. Good fucking riddance! I will sleep well tonight. :-)

              He got a hot musclebearish guy built like a line backer. The lead singer is 6’3″ according to The Duchess, so, duh, he’s gonna be bigger than a Size 40 dummy unless he’s a string bean…and by definition, he ain’t.  Interesting challenge.  I liked all the critiques about how the pants showed off the guys’ butts…or didn’t.  Finally a challenge that straight women and gay men can really enjoy.  Hot rock star ass!  Armadillos in the trousers!  Rrrowr!!!

            yeah, didn’t she say something like “it’s about time a pretty, rich girl made it on the show!”  gross.  then she was surprisingly nice and humble…but my guess is that is a classic “mean girls” strategy.

              My hubby’s cousin’s two girls (eight and eleven) watch the show now and Laura is their favourite – simply because she has blonde hair and makes ‘pretty clothes’ I think.  

              I really feel the need to show them that clip, it worries me that they’re idolizing someone so utterly shallow.  But I suppose there’s alot of that about (*cough* Kardashians *cough*)

            Yeah, I’m sure her mommy told her she was pretty, but most of us realize at some point that our mommies aren’t the best-qualified to judge that — and she’s really not that pretty.  She wasn’t that pretty before she opened her mouth, and she definitely isn’t after.  At least in Anya’s case, the pretty girl bit is warranted.

            Thank you! I know someone who is both rich and pretty (to an extreme degree) and I have NEVER heard either word come out of her mouth – unless she was talking about someone else. 

            I oftentimes entertain myself during her more annoying moments on the show imagining what Lisa would say if presented with privileged!Barbie here. And then I has a sad, because I’ll never get to hear it.

            I just find her to be embarrassing.  She’s so – so WHITE and MIDDLE CLASS and DULL.  She has all this psychological/socio-cultural spinach in her teeth and we all see it and she just can’t.   I honestly think she views herself as “classy” or “cultured” or “en vogue.”   I just wince every time she opens her mouth because she is so predictable and such a giant bore.

        Laura annoys me more than the other designers, because she hasn’t produced anything that’s not a copycat of other people’s design, or ugly outdated Barbie clothes.  And she has been going by the middle for a while now.  
        Olivier has some serious issues with colors, as well as being juvenile, but he always has a POV and his own designing ideas. And he’s low-key enough to be tolerable (he and Kimberly are the only ones who didn’t pull some variant of Mean Girl at this point), he’s not mean, and he has some adorable moments.  

      • Anonymous

        Agreed.  Laura sews well and quickly but has no taste.  She’s a cute, entitled version of Wendy Pepper.  I still can’t believe she won for her Gucci ripoff on stilts.

      Precious Moments aka Olieeurve has to pretty much implode on this challenge, right? I mean, he won’t have to deal with big boobs but something tells me he’s going to have a hard time working beige into a successful rock and roll look. He gets my vote.

    • Anonymous

      Who is that?  How did they find someone who uses as much product as Josh?  (Which, I suppose, means that they are sisters under the skin, and Josh skates – or wins – another week.)
       
      I don’t know who to send home if I’m not allowed to choose Josh.  I guess going down the “annoying” scale from there, it would be Olivier, then Laura, then Anya. But it’s really a toss-up among that trio.  And it’s nothing to do with their designs, either.  It’s to do with saving my television from having large, heavy objects thrown at it.

      Once again, I’ll be late for the lounge. Board meeting tonight means I won’t get home until the show is well under way, if not actually over. But save a comfy chair and a stiff drink for me. I’ll want to hear all the gossip.

      • Anonymous

        Bert’s designs have been boring but his construction and fit have been impeccable, so I think he’ll stick around longer than some others who consistently have trouble with one of those two issues.  Especially Kimberly, whose skirts always seem to oddly ride up the model’s hips. 

        My pick to go is Laura.  She’s done nothing to justify her bitchiness and her mean girl attitude and completely unjustified air of superiority is just making me ill.

        There are benefits to being a temporary international bitter kitten.  I can’t get the show.  I “watch” it via TLo.

        Actually I find this ironic.  I found TLo because I loved PR (started right around the Laura Bennet as Ginger post.)  After the move to Lifetime I kept watching PR only because TLo blogged it.  Now I’ve finally come full term and I don’t even both to watch, I just read the blog.  Your the creature that has replaced it’s creator, gentlemen.

      Should go home?  Olivier

      Probably will go home instead?  Bert or Anthony, although I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the challenge that finally trips up Anya in the judges’ eyes.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TRYUOEZZC2IVUO24TCJMVTDNSU Gianni Rubino

        This is a team challenge – four people to a team, yes?  So, Anya has 3 other people to help her construct, maybe even design.  I say Anya is completely safe for this go-round.  Anthony Ryan seems to be a good fit for the challenge, as does OTT mean girl Josh.  If left on their own, I would expect Oliv(i)er to go, but since it is a challenge, maybe he will get help, too?

        IMHO, Bert and Oliv(i)er are rather vulnerable.  I’m setting my sights low this week, so, please, God, just don’t let Josh win a 3rd time.  Oh, and PLEASE times infinity, don’t let him be a top 3 finale person.  I want a more professionally acting person to actually win.

        Between Anya’s back story, and the output from all contestants for much of the season, I’m beginning to think that my way to crawl out of poverty and obscurity is to audition for the show.  I have NO fashion knowledge, or talent.  I am visually challenged.  If I start on my sewing skills today, I’ll have way more than four months of it under my belt, right?  Maybe I’ll go buy a sewing kit from Wal*Mart tomorrow?  Wait a minute, that probably means I don’t have taste either, huh?

        Not to rub it in, but does everyone think that PRAs3 got it RIGHT with the win of the season?

        I’m still pretty excited about watching PR9.  I suspect tonight will have SOME decent, interesting designs.  I have been wrong before, though.

        Lastly, I am now over Tim Gunn, and for only one reason.  “Oooh!  See what Onondra did?”  There is indeed such a thing as too much, after all.

        Well, if they’re designing for Adam Lambert, his look isn’t that far from a lot of 1980′s women — my big sister who was dating (then oh so briefly married to) a metal guitarist, and had the tallest, most bleached and permed hair I’ve ever seen in person, and who taught me all about the correct way to put on blue eyeshadow  comes to mind.

        I don’t understand why so many people have an issue with the spelling of Olivier’s name. It’s entirely possible that his parents chose that spelling, or named him after a long dead relative who spelled his name that way. It’s not the traditional American spelling, but that doesn’t make it any less valid.

          AH, you and I are usually SO sisters-in-opinion (I tried to agree with you about something a few nights ago and Disqus was having a seizure)..but I have to say I’m on the other side of this one.

          If you’re going to spell your name like Sir Laurence, at least pronounce it that way.  As a movie nerd, seeing it written that way and pronounced the “silent i” (who ever heard of that?) way just makes me itch.

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

            You know, I get your point. I really do. I have a bit of a disconnection every time I see it, and I have to think about how to pronounce it in my head. But there’s an arrogance that some people have about any name that’s not spelled in standard American form.( See also: Viktor) And it’s really disrespectful IMO.That’s what bugs me.

            Who knows why he pronounces it “Oliver”? Maybe he, or his parents, just gave up trying to correct people. My mother got so irritated trying to tell people how to pronounce my first name (which was very unusual in the late 50s, not so much anymore) that she started calling me by my middle name. My entire family still does it.

        Apparently if a person is born in Middle-America but grows up in Asia and Europe, he must must have a middle American accent, right?

          Not necessarily.  But Olivier’s accent is so very inconsistent; I’m not the only person who has noticed.

      I’d say that of the remaining designers, Bert has churned out the most consistently underwhelming looks. He’s my pick to go home.

      I dislike Olivier and his fake accent, but I think he has a more modern, interesting aesthetic than Bert, who can’t design something that looks like it came out after 1990.

      I’m in a Lemon Drop sort of mood and I think the pale yellow will go nicely with the decor. I can’t believe that fabulous lounge is in Ireland! I totally missed that part of Ireland when I was there…although the tiny, smokey pubs I visited were quite nice!

      I think Precious Moments just because I’m really tired of him. But, given the challenge, I’m thinking Anya could really be screwed this time around from a skills standpoint. Unless she puts her rocker-man in a flowing caftan with a halter neck…maybe she could start a new rocker-man style trend?

        Is it a cold with a severe cough?  That’s what our whole family has had for about a month now — as soon as one gets better, someone else gives it back to them. 

        BTW, we’re considering Corran for the next kid if it’s a boy:)  My husband is seriously pushing for it…

        • Eclectic Mayhem

          Yes!  We’ve all had it, but Corran’s version hung around for the longest.  Now it appears to have turned into an ear infection with added tummy troubles.  Joy.  Meanwhile I’ve just started a streaming head cold which might have something to do with being up all night with Corran.

          Glad to hear you’re considering the name btw, it is lovely.  In order to secure it I had to make a delivery room bargain with my husband whereby we combined my father’s and his father’s name to make a middle name (LCDR Mayhem thought two middle names was excessive!)  So Thomas and Robert became ‘Thombert’ as the other way round would have been ‘Robas’!

            Oh yeah, my husband, 3 kids, nephew and me have all had it at least twice and it sucks!

            My only worry is that it’s more unusual than the first three — Aidan, Katherine, and Lucas.  I’m concerned it won’t fit in.  But it is the frontrunner so far…

            • Eclectic Mayhem

              It would go with Aiden, they’re both Irish names…

              When I got married I went from having a very, very rare surname (Googling it in combination with my first name would find ME and only ME) into the arms of total anonymity.  We chose unusual (but hopefully not too weird) names for both our boys just to give them a shot and finding themselves on Google one day.  Hopefully for something good rather than something dodgy!

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

              Yeah… that’s never been an issue for me.  In fact, I’m totally comfortable using my real name on the internet because good luck finding the right me based on my name alone!  There are literally thousands of us… and while taking my husband’s name would have given me a slightly more unusual name combination, it’s still a VERY common surname for Chinese people.  And our kids don’t get names from our heritages, exactly, in that their legal names are not Chinese at all in origin.  They do each have an honorary Chinese name, though, just like their dad does. 

              Oh, my husband immediately placed it from Krull:)  If there’s one thing he can be counted on for, it is knowledge of any terrible sci-fi.

      Olivier was primarily a menswear designer, so unless he has a really bad breakdown, he should be able to have the skills.  And he was in the top group just the week before this.  Interesting to see Viktor and Olivier in a team for the third time.  

      Bert actually lived through the age of rock and roll, and his tailoring skills are impeccable. 

      Kim should also skip by with her low-key and skills.

      Josh and Anya can send towels down the runway and still won’t be eliminated. 

      Viktor shouldn’t go.  He’s the strongest designer here. 

      I believe it’s time for Laura or Anthony.  Laura hasn’t made anything worthwhile in weeks and is just plain annoying without being entertaining.  Anthony has to work with Bert again, and he won’t be having the glue gun this time.

        I can’t see Laura’s “aesthetic” working well at all for this challenge. Outrageous as his style is, Glambert’s no prom Barbie. I agree, Laura doesn’t bring much style, and lately she hasn’t been working the drama angle either (or the editors haven’t). I can’t see her staying much longer. At least Precious Moments is interesting to watch fall apart. :D

      I would say Laura or Bert. Both make fairly standard clothes and haven’t–as far as I can remember–taken any risks. Bert is more entertaining, so I’d keep him around a little longer. That puts Laura in my auf category for tonight.

      Olivier.  Or Laura.  Neither has impressed me at all. 

      Bert’s been dull, but had a couple cute moments.  Anya can’t construct, but has ideas.  Anthony Ryan just delights me for some reason. Victor has turned out some truly impressive looks. 

      I’d prefer Olivier because anyone with that lack of experience who thinks they should be handed 100K to start their own line… it’s just annoying.  And yes, Christian lacked experience somewhat as well, but he wasn’t sitting there saying he’d NEVER worked with a client.  (To be honest, I also want him to go because I don’t think I should have a better grasp of his job than he does, and yet I do.  Without traveling around the world or sinking a fortune into design school.)

          And I really question how much a designer can love what they do if they’ve never done it for anyone… I mean, I design and make stuff as a hobby — including full wardrobes — and I’ve never just made it for no one.  There’s always someone in mind.  After it’s sketched, I send it to whomever it was done for and get feedback, altering the design if necessary, and then I make it for them.  How can you expect to start your own line if you’ve never dressed a real body?!?

      • Helen C

        Well, if Josh/Olivier/Viktor/Kimberly are on a team, and Anya/Anthony/Laura/Bert are on a team, then I think the first team will win.  Olivier/Viktor/Kimberly are all low-key people.  Kimberly has the sewing skills (and I don’t think Josh would dare to bully her).  Viktor and Olivier work well together.  Olivier has the menswear designing skills/experience.  Viktor has good ideas and skills. And Josh himself has flamboyance and some good skills.   If the three of them can tone Josh down, then I can see them turning out good products.  

        The other team, Laura/Anthony have no team-work people managing skills.  I can just see the three of them forming a clique so fast and then leaves Bert out.  And Bert would annoyed and get bitchy.  Laura would throw mean remarks around with Anya, who will be watching the cameras.  Anya can’t make a maxi-dress variant this time. Besides, there are not a lot of menswear designs for Laura and Anthony to copy off, again.  But more likely the judges will ignore Laura’s consistent ugly works, praise Anya for whatever she sent down, and focus on Anthony and Bert.

Besides, if he stays another week, I think he will have a full-out nervous breakdown.  Ozark Barbie because I hate her “aesthetic” and her attitude.

      It’s funny, but I can remember outfits from Leanne, Austin, Christian, Jillian, Uli, Laura, Jay, Daniel, and even Santino so clearly. I can remember Viktor’s and Anya’s work from last week but beyond that it all fades into the background this season. Unless Viktor really steps it up I don’t even see anyone worth a stealth win, like Leanne. (Meaning, quiet personality with fashion that grows on you until you can’t wait to see what she’s made next.)

          Is that an option?  I know the Lifetime deal is for the five seasons 6-10, but, what with PR Accessories and PR All-Stars S2, plus MOTR and A&S, could that possibly happen?  I do miss the way the show was edited during the Bravo years.

            First, I don’t know that they’d go back or that NBC would take them back — it was a pretty ugly fight between the Weinsteins and NBC.

            Second, let’s really think about Bravo’s recent output — the Real Housewives et al?  Are we sure that it would be an improvement at this point?

            What kills me about it is that the switch to Lifetime was because Weinstein wanted a bigger budget for the show — more money for challenges and that kind of thing.  Yet it’s worse on Lifetime than it ever was on Bravo.

      As much as I like Kimberly’s drama-free work ethic, I don’t like much of what she creates. I wish her all the luck in the future, but I think it’s time for her lumpy metallics and unflattering skirts to go. Second choice — Olivier and his monochromatic palette and bad time management. That said, I think they’ll both do well with this challenge.

      Soooo, fellow comrades, how much valium and vodka tonics is it gonna take to get through tonight’s episode?? I reckon (I love that word, ‘reckon’) 4 pills/tonics.

        Well, I don’t have Valium, but I do have Flexaril and a controlled (legal) substance. I’m thinking the Flexaril should work pretty well with a vodka tonic, or some Jack Daniels and a good beer. Or even a cheap beer. With the way this season has gone, I’m not too picky. Anything but Coors.

        I reckon I need to eat about a pound of pasta before I started consuming anything too hardcore though.

      Really?  Anyone could go, I can’t muster up enthusiasm for anyone.  Maybe Vicktor and Kimberly can stay, they have done some interesting things and haven’t been too sucked into the evil dramatics that dominate this season.
      Now, about that lounge…… Trust me, that blue light WILL NOT be flattering to anyones make up or make you look younger.  There is a restuarant in downtown Chicago (I forget the name) I was taken to a few years back that had this same lighting and vibe.  AWFUL!  Seriously, that is one of the worst ideas in lighting I have seen on over 25 years of interior design.  Why must you insist on dragging us to all these lounges with uncomfortable seating and bad lighting?  Just because it’s “NOW” and trendy doesn’t make it desirable.

      I think that I would like to see Laura go home, particularly if she comes up with a “Rock-Star” Ken outfit.   I googled “The Sheepdogs” and discovered that they are from Saskatoon, which makes sense because they all look like the guys you’d see at a bar I hit when visiting relatives up by International Falls.   (Plaid Flannel – it’s not a fabric, it’s a lifestyle.)  I’m looking forward to seeing some bearded faces saying “Hell, no I ain’t putting that on.”  (And will they have to go to the Garnier stylists as well?) 

      As far as the bar goes, with my florid complexion I will look purple there.   So let’s go with an appletini for contrast.

This is a heartbreaking decision for me to make, but this show isn’t even Project Runway anymore so why invest time in it? I’ll still be looking forward to TLo critiques, however!

      Precious Moments needs to go.  Really, wouldn’t his time be better spent trying to pick ONE accent and stick with it?  It’s got to be hard to keep switching around like that, and if he settled on one he might have time to address his titphobia.

       That shot of Heidi doing the rock and roll sign is cracking me right the hell up.

      Olivier or Bert (sob) probably should/will go, but I want Laura to go, and I want to see the door hit her in the ass as she leaves. I also want her to be snubbed by the other designers when she returns to the waiting room after she’s eliminated, the way Becky was snubbed when she left. And I want her to leave PR feeling awful about her work and her behavior. But that last part will not happen. Actually, I doubt any of it will happen tonight.

        Elsewhere on this comment section I’ve advocated putting wooden stocks in Time Square, putting Laura in them, playing the clip of her talking about ‘pretty girls getting chosen first’ on the jumbotron and getting everyone to throw squished tomatoes at her so I think we’re just about on the same page accidental housewife!

      Really, truly? I want Anya to go home. She’s skating, has been skating, and judging by her finale collection, if she’s in the final three, STILL skating.  She’s more skilled at illusion than plain skilled.

      We KNOW that won’t happen any more than Josh going home, for similar t.v. show reasons.

      I’ll settle for whichever of Anya, Olivier & Laura make the truly worst outfit (amongst the three) going home. I think that in reality, Bert has a target on his back, sad as it makes me to say it.

      Oh, and Adam Lambert? His hair for this episode makes me soooo happy because it’s perfectly ridiculous and perfectly right for him.

      I think it *should* be Oliver or Bert who goes home next, but I fear it actually may be Anthony Ryan or Kimberly.  At least with Adam Lambert there for a menswear challenge this time I am fully confident of two things:  Clinique won’t be the prettiest one on the stage, and Laura won’t be making another shitty prom dress.

      I can’t join the crowd on Laura. Annoying she may be, but I liked her finale collection and putting personality aside – which seems to be an act with the volume control dependent on whether or not she wants camera time – I can’t say I want someone to go when I like their finale collection.

And I could be imagining things, but it seems that, in the last two episodes, she was given an inordinate amount of talking head screen time, during which she’s either busting on another designer or busting on another designer’s work.

        My opinion of her really is wearing me out.

      Oliver. Easily the least talented (judging from what he has produced) to stay this damn long (except maybe ROB who was not talentless – but stayed longer on his charm than results)! I have never understood the PR boner for him AT ALL. Personality wise – GO HOME LAURA – “Are you speaking foreign?!” and the cafeteria teen mean girl BS and the comment on an extended video where she states (Having been selected before Becky in a group challenge) “The pretty girls get picked first and we KNOW Becky is not in that category!” – totally juvenile, tacky, INSECURE and not true.

          Olivier has amazing tailoring skills in the same way that I am an Oscar winning make-up artist, which is to say he can probably sew well when he’s given enough time and there are no distractions. Also, I never tried to pass myself off as having more skills than I had.

        I still think cheering openly at criticism of your teammates on the runway (though well-deserved) is tacky.  And I didn’t like that he was very standoffish with the others because of age.  But he seems to have gotten it out of his system — and I wonder how much of it might have been a defensive nature that he hasn’t learned to really mitigate yet.  (I have a husband like that:)

         I was, however, very pleased with his behavior with his art student: the kid gave him a piece that was EXCEPTIONALLY DIFFICULT to interpret into clothing, and yet he had nothing but nice things to say about him anyway.  It was sweet.  And I LOVED that he has said nice things about Victor’s stuff recently too; that’s not easy when you hated working with someone as much as he did.

        • scottyf

          Not to beat a dead horse (a phrase which I have always found evokes surreal images for me), but I think we all look at these producer-cut episodes from our own perspective-induced eyes.I think people conveniently forget that we are seeing something like 40+ hours of footage narrowed down to less than 90 minutes by folks (editors, producers, directors) who have their own subjective story to tell.  I always looked at Bert’s cheering as: “Yeah! I was RIGHT!” not “Yeah! They were WRONG!” And the “good” behavior that has surprised everyone else in recent episodes was evident to me from the first show. I think we look at what we want to look at. I was always interested in Bert (I know…shock, huh?) so I payed attention to his behavior even when the camera wasn’t directly on him. Nothing has changed. He’s still the same sweet, fucked-up-at-times, smart, consistently competent, diva queen designer he always was–just with a different edit.

          As for the art student? That is my number one tool for assessing an individual. Whatever behavior a persons show with a young person is the behavior that tells me most about who they are. If they are comfortable with a kid, they are usually comfortable with themselves on some level. Bert was wonderful. One of the sexiest things in the world to me is a man playing with kids. 

          Bert will be wonderful with ours.

            I like your interpretation of the runway cheer of vindication on that team challenge. I felt Bert was being framed, in a way, even in the stilt episode. It looked to me as if Viktor didn’t even consult with Bert before explaining “our concept” to the model, and Bert kind of took revenge by making a design that fit Viktor’s clumsy explanation of his concept. The problem is that compared to him the other designers are all kids–mean, self-absorbed,ignorant,  rude kids. As TLo pointed out on the second team challenge, his teammates were actually afraid of him. Why? He has dignity, he actually knows stuff (e.g. what avant-garde means, not just translated into street lingo but historically), and he isn’t trying to prove anything. You can either be afraid of him or respect him, and these designers don’t know what respect means. I am still treasuring the way he reacted, or didn’t bother to react, when Josh attacked him. No crying in the restrooms for Bert.

              This, exactly. When Laura and Anthonly Ryan cozied up and snubbed him once, twice, thrice in their team challenge, my reaction – Bert, take these snot-nosed kids to school.

        I thought it was nice of Bert, but I don’t think it should’ve been allowed in the show.  Had Laura won, especially, I would’ve been irritated, since she was able to make with $450 what everyone else had to do with $300. I am not a Bert fan anymore (sorry Scotty, don’t beat me!), but I was pleased to see that money isn’t everything. That he was in the top 3 with $150 in materials and Laura was dinged with her overly expensive, dyed Arthur getup.

He did go to school for fashion design, but I don’t believe he has a clue about the technical side of design. He has no idea what he’s doing.

          The sewing skills do mean something here — if you send one poorly made garment down the runway, that’s one thing.  But if you’re sending things down every week that aren’t constructed with any sense at all, it implies you don’t understand how to make clothes.  If you don’t know how to cut fabric and how to sew it, you can have great ideas that are NOT POSSIBLE, because the fabric you envision won’t hold the shape you’re looking for.

        I agree. Bert’s guy is really cute. And despite it being kind of messy, he has gorgeous hair. (Actually, I like messy hair) Too bad he’s just so inhumanly LARGE. I don’t even know how Bert or Olivier got a tape measure around him.

      I really didn’t think there was any way they could steal this one from Viktor and give it to Josh, but now I am really afraid that’s exactly what’s going to happen. Meanwhile, Blenley’s Massacre at Wounded Chest was HIDDY. Josh’s Pocketstravaganza was NOT hot. Opposite of hot. That’s the one that did look like Johnny Bravo and the Brady Bunch hit the mall. And there’s simply no excuse for Anya’s pants splitting on the runway, not to mention the rest of the WRONG and fally-aparty in that outfit. Yes, Precious Moments is a mess. But, seriously, there ain’t nuthin’ worse than what Anya sent down that runway.

      The stitching on Anya’s collar was visible!  They were like basting stitches.  That should be unforgivable– as should a HOLE in the ASS of the pants!  ????  How did that not only skate through, but not be in the bottom two?  Clearly she was being judged on body of work, b/c her outfit was so horrendous as to be criminal.  That guy got two terrible outfits.  I felt bad for him.

      Glad to see Bert getting long overdue love. I did not, and do not, understand why Josh’s outfit got all sorts of praise. It was way overdone for what it was, with far too many design elements in the vest.

        The girl can’t help herself…  The one thing about Josh was said right up front “..I design for gay men”.  What was left out was “vapid gay men in NYC who are probably 50 and are doing everything humanly possible – short of shopping at A&F – to look like they’re 21 and haaawwwwtttt…”

          Josh has got a real taste problem. All those suede accent pieces on his pants?  That vest with the decorative squares he didn’t get to use last week? And the fringe sleeves?  I guess we should be glad the guy didn’t get the Clinique Counter treatment. 
          I will give Josh points for being aware of the problem… but then take them away because he couldn’t stop himself.

      • Pam Winters

        I think Olivier normally dresses Flat Stanley.

        Also, with his attitudes toward people and wearability, he’d be a better fit for Work of Art. He’s about the stuff he makes; the user just gets in his way.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1017585103 Kanani Fong

      Olivier lives in some other universe. He’s incredibly unaware over how his immaturity in regards to the human body, and the things he says ends up offending everyone. Anyway, despite his parallel universe, I was sorry to see him go. I think he’s a better designer with more taste than Josh, Anya, Kimberly or Anthony. Olivier also has an artistic leaning..
      But his problem is that he lacks what those others don’t have: stamina and drive. He’s a bit emotionally fragile, and there’s something about him that screams coddled, but to the point of having his true self smothered.

        Coddled is what I’ve been thinking too. I would not be surprised to learn that he has helicopter parents, and I have to wonder how he gets through life day to day. He was really pissing me off in this episode, but I feel a little bad for him. Not for being eliminated, but for seemingly being unable to function in real life.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      It was definitely time for Precious Moments to go.  One introvert to another, I was willing to support him–we don’t thrive in environments like that–but the last two outings?  Being emotionally detached is one thing.  I kind of respect it more than I respect the drama brigade.  But being an asshole?  Not so much.

      Anya and Kimberly also deserved to be in the bottom, and Anya deserved to be safe because, unlike Kimberly, she knew it from the get-go, and at least didn’t compound the other errors by sticking a line of big buttons down the front.

      Yay for the Viktor win.  He did a good job, and he’s been abstaining from hissing much lately.

      And jeez, as if exposed zippers up the back of a garment weren’t unattractive.   The pants on Vortex’s guy were tight enough to see whether or not he was circumcised (except that the evidence was under the zipper, I guess).  We did not also need a big black line to explain the concept further.  And the guy seemed totally embarrassed.  It takes something to embarrass a guy in a band.  I’d have put Bert’s ahead of it.  There was, again, a lot of ass on the runway, though, so it definitely made the top three.

      What’s with the stupid cafeteria shots?  So bored with them.

      Bert’s pinstripes were pretty good.  But the fact that the singer said it wasn’t his style is probably what cost him the second place score.

      Oh my god–I already can’t remember Anthony Ryan’s or Laura’s.

      I note that only Viktor’s guy used any of the PR-recommended styling in the photo shoot.  Thank God, the pigtails were gone.

And he was perfectly okay with calling crap out, but he managed not to say it with any real nastiness.

          I agree with that.  He was a pretty decent guest judge.

            Huh.  Maybe I’m just allowing the fact that he grated on my last nerve during his “Idol” season to influence my perception there.

        On a tangent, I wondered if Oliveirino has some sensory issues (when he covered his ears and flinched when
        the band started playing…and when he complained last week that the
        couple was talking too much and he couldn’t think), and the way he’s
        handled it so far is to cocoon and cut himself off from real people and
        the real world. Doesn’t excuse the fact that he’s completely tone deaf
        to the idiotic things coming out of his mouth.

      Hmmm… Tricky question, because Josh did focuse all the attention on him to the point that the other contestants all become blurs in the background. Well done, Josh, you managed to be the show’s and public’s center of attention but not for your flawless and amazing designs.  Anyway, I would like to see miss T&T or Blenley to go.
      Has the episode allready been aired ?

      Not too impressed with any of the designs at all but menswear is tough to do and given the constraints of the challenge, they can only go as far given the limited style range of the guest band. But still, the contestants managed to make the bandmembers look like a joke but they were charming and were such good sports. I didn’t hink any of the pants really fit well except for maybe Bert’s. Viktor definitely put out a lot of effort in his work but I saw fit issues with his final product. Bert’s was on his usual well-made, clean lines but appeared to be inconsistent with the lead singer’s scruffy personal style. I think the pigtails saved him from the overall image becoming too sharp. I don’t get the praise for Josh M’s outfi ’cause it’s all over the place. As a resident of San Francisco, I found Josh’s look to be an odd marriage of Haight-Ashbury and Castro and that’s unfortunate ’cause that bandmember was actually the hottest guy there. Hated Laura’s amateur tie-dye work on the shirt and the girlie coat. Girl needs to quit talking smack ’cause she ain’t all that. Anthony’s garment was forgettable. Olivier’s would have been OK if he had worked faster than he usually does and made a darker pair of denim pants. Both Kimberly and Anya totally deserved bottom since their looks were more Partridge Family than rock band.

        I didn’t see a “$450 worth of fabric” look from Laura, and she continued to snipe about Bert even after he had saved financially. What was that all about?  The first 10 minutes of the show had all these slams aimed at Bert.

        • Anonymous

          Good point re $450.  I agreed with MK that the tye-dyed tee looked bloody.  First thing I thought when I saw the look.  PS–How do the designers get all that dyeing done and DRY and have enough time to cut and sew??  Must be some serious dryers in a back room, but then I’d be worried about serious shrinkage.

          I watched the Challenge winner video on mylifetime.com, and Viktor said that as soon as Laura came back in she started giving him crap about his winning over her! WTF? Her’s was atrocious. Sweeney Todd was spot on.

      I’ve been waiting for Olivier to go for a while now.  FINALLY!  Sheesh.  “I can’t design for boobs.  I can’t design for fat people.”  Basically he can design boring-ass clothes for walking sticks.  This whole episode was funky.  I didn’t like Burt’s “space ass” look.  Anya deserved to be in the bottom, but she should have been bottom two with Ollie because at least Kimberly’s ugly clothes fit.  Overall, I was impressed by nothing.  I liked what the band wore for their photo shoot at the end.  Everyone went too literal and it was just…whatever.  These challenges keep pushing the designers out of their comfort zones and most are not rising to the occasion. 

      Also, I was so looking forward to Adam Lambert as a judge because I love him, but he was disappointing.  He mostly just laughed at Michael Kors’ kooky comments, which only encouraged The Great Pumpkin to keep flinging them.

        At least Kimberley’s ugly clothes fit and were DONE.

      I can’t believe not ONE of the judges discussed the fact that Precious Moments used TOILE for a fabric.  Dude is in a rock ‘n roll band.  Even Peach, when she used toile, didn’t use Blue and Yellow ugly toile.  The only place toile should be deployed outside of the french provincial dining room is on a woman who is lunching at the country club.  He definitely deserved his aufing this week, but I had hoped that Kors or Garcia would get him for it.

      Also, I LOVE LOVED LOVED Adam Lambert last night.  His reaction to Kors’ sound bites were priceless.

      Oh, and Anthony’s after looking back at the pics looked like a hillbilly hunting camouflage shirt that was cut off at the sleeves…rock and roll it ain’t.

      I felt so bad for the lead singer. I could not believe the judges loved Bert’s outfit. It looked like a hippie halloween costume. And the pigtails! That isn’t rock and roll, that’s just silly. You could tell the singer wasn’t feeling it, he looked so awkward and uncomfortable. And I’m sorry if this sounds crude, but the first thing I thought when I saw Laura’s outfit was, “That shirt looks like a menstrual pad.”

      Ooookay. Where was the team’s part in that team challenge again ? Apart from the fact that both team of four used the same four models, I don’t see why there is a team notion. I don’t see the point because the contestants were pretty relaxed about the challenge : they had two days and the so called team didn’t have to produce cohesive work. Not really a stressfull challenge, was it ? OK, it’s menswear. But every couple of PR season there is a menswear challenge, so no reason to not expect it. At that level of competition a menswear collection would have been pretty stressfull and drama inducing challenge. But it wasn’t. Or at least, not so much of it has been shown on screen.
      Apart from the design and construction difficulty, the contestant didn’t seem to take it so much as a stressfull challenge, hence a relatively boring episode.

      I liked Bert’s outfit, a take so out of it that it transcended Rock’n’Roll.I understand why Nina praised it : it didn’t look like it was just out of a Country music CD picture, it really looked like a star of a Viking Metal group in a time travel to Woodstock. And was it the editing or does Bert’s behavior is really shiny lately. He was sweet all over, even if he didn’t have to produce a pretty dress, he was game for the challenge. Maybe because he did like the thema ? Good point, Bert. You earned more of my love back.
      Viktor’s outfit was just OK, Josh’s was tacky, Blenley and Anthony were unmemorable, Anya’s, Kimberley’s and Olivier’s were a mess… Let’s say that the ones in the bottom deserved it as much as the ones in the top. I get the auf (it made sense to me : between a beginner and a menswear “specialist” who failed, who has to go ?) but not really the win. It just look to me that the judges had to give at least one to Viktor since he didn’t win before and the other two already winned something. We wouldn’t want the public to think we have a pet designer in the bunch, would we ?

          sorry, I forgot that one. I think Josh monopolize so much screen time that it didn’t register.

    • Anonymous

      I was so pleased that Viktor won.  He’s done some fine work that has been either ignored or inappropriately relegated to second place.  That jacket was killer.

      What the hell is with Olivier?  He can’t adjust his measurements because his model isn’t the same size as his mannequin?  What was that?  He needs to learn that, unlike himself, most grown men do not shop in the boy’s department.

      When I saw Laura’s design, I just wondered whose blood that was, and what she did with that $450.  (By the way, did anyone else question Bert pulling her chestnuts out of the fire on that one?  I suppose it’s within the rules, since Tim was standing right there and didn’t stop it, but it seems odd to me that they’d permit a situation where one designer could have such a significant advantage over the others.  And that could allow for collusion. I thought the idea was that they’d be on an equal playing field at Mood.)

      Josh, Josh, Josh.  Stop throwing things at your designs!  Honestly?  I didn’t mind the crotch zipper, though it would suit Mick Jagger better than it did this bunch.   But those pockets!  How weirdly situated were they?  And too much happening above the waist.  The trees got lost in the forest.

        Josh’s looked like a Halloween costume. I once had to go to a 70s themed party and he would have been a hit there. Laura’s was sooooo awful. Luckily for he ir was a complete look and there were some true disasters below her. But it was ugly and in bad taste.

        • Anonymous

          When the judges were going on and on about the awesomeness of Laura’s look I simply could not believe it. I was so glad when someone (maybe Nina?) said it looked like a woman’s blazer with a scarf draped around it. The crack was certainly plentiful last night.

        Josh could just have sewn a “Here Is The Dick” tag over the front of his pants without the trouble of having to insert a zipper.

        although I will say the fit on Viktor’s pants was perfection.  Showed off all of the right places.  If you covered the man’s top half, it was actually pretty hot.

      There was one good thing about this episode: we got to see quite a bit of the workroom. More of people draping, dyeing, cutting out, etc. Part of the problem with this season is that with so many participants in the early shows they might as well be reading a book or sewing throw pillows for all you get to see of the process. 
      Funny thing about the band getting featured on Lifetime: I liked their music and I tend to mute the audio on fashion show videos… I am sure I would cover my ears if I heard music Oliver liked. I thought the Sheepdogs were terrific.

      • Pam Winters

        I enjoyed them as well. I’m not sure that they were anything special or unique, musically, but they have talents and a nice groove. They’re touring with folks like Black Joe Lewis and Robert Randolph–seems like they’d find the right audiences there. And the hair and the builds of three of them…well, I could have looked at those fittings all night, whatever the damn clothes came out like.  :^)

      • Toto Maya

        Yeah, they aren’t particularly unique or anything, but they could definitely come out with some nice, catchy tunes.

      I’ve scrolled straight to the comments section now that I’m fifteen minutes into the episode because the need to vent is so intense.  I want to take every ounce of my 130 pound, bad-ass mommy of three body and KICK Olivier’s bony butt.  “You are Big”  “He is Huge” Has anyone figured out what china vase this kid grew up in?

        not that the gossip gets me happy or anything, but he must be oblivious if what Anya said to Viktor in the break room is true: that he thought he was going to win last week.
