Darlings, we’re feeling all kinds of INDUSTRIAL.

Water Bar in Sydney, Australia

We’re also feeling the need to gaze at hot Australian bartenders. Who’s with us?


Olivia Palermo serves as the guest judge tonight and we are awash in ambivalence at the prospect.

It seems kind of redundant to do a ’70s-themed challenge after last week’s salute to Scooby Doo and the Brady Bunch, but who knew those silly designers thought rock and roll meant fringe and bell bottoms? Hopefully we’ll get a more Halston-chic ’70s thing going on. One thing’s for sure, if Bert doesn’t pull out a Top 3 look, he’s done.

All right, question of the week time, just to get this party started quickly, right?

Who would be your one fantasy guest judge for Project Runway? The one you know they’d never ask to sit in that chair?

And don’t say “T Lo.” We have no desire to do such a thing. Fashion bloggers are a growing influence on the industry and it would be cool to see a blogger-themed challenge, but we’re afraid we would lose our ability to comment on the proceedings if they let us into the sausage factory.

      I get the first (or almost first, because I’m sure there is a race) comment!  I would like to see for tonight’s guest judge, some 70s fashion icon like Lauren Hutton, Donna Summer or even (!) David Cassidy.  They lived it– who better to see it updated?

        Lauren Hutton! I love her so much. Her style and casual coolness have always impressed me.

      I fucking loved Iman in what little I saw of TFS.  I want to bring her and Bowie in as a pair, have them judge a rockstar challenge, and possibly watch them argue about the looks.  >.> (Call it fantasy because Iman’s the TFS host, and I *rather* doubt they’d ask Bowie on to judge.)

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

      Well, and I think it’d be really hard to respond to the episodes as they air if you’d already seen the results of a challenge and met the designers in person during the judging panel.  Not to mention the fact that you’d know who’d be auf’ed before you judged, so the first half of the season, you’d be doing write ups with that knowledge in mind. 

      I could see Burt having a difficult time with this precisely because of his age — they’re going to be looking for 70′s INSPIRED clothing and they are far more likely to see Burt’s as too literal because he was in fashion then. 

      My ideal judge would be Cate Blanchett.  She knows fashion, she has a great deal of style, her look is versatile enough to provide the designers with a range of styles to work with. 

      Oh no — I take that back.  I want Helen Mirren.  She’s fabulous in every way.  Cher would be fun too, mainly because she wouldn’t hesitate to tell something that they were insane to think she’d ever wear such a thing.  And I can guarantee Cher results would be interesting because most of them would go OTT but do it badly.  It takes a very special knack to go that tacky while still retaining enough style to rate a designer tag.

        Jay was a guest judge already. Pretty sure it was season 2 and he got bitchy with them when they complained about time. He was all been there, done that, did you see my Chysler building dress bitches, puuuulease!

      I’ve been disappointed in the guest judges for a few seasons now. At this point I’d just like to see someone who has some idea of what they’re talking about and can contribute something other than, “I’d wear that.”

      Dream guest judge?  Sorry to be repetitive but I’m going to have to plump for Vivienne Westwood again.  She’s bonkers, barmy and bags of fun.  I’d love to see her tear this particular crop of designers a new one.

        I kind of don’t like Anna Wintour but I do think she’d make a good judge for a round–would she agree with Nina? Fight her? But you know she wouldn’t hesitate to tear into the designers (especially this season) for their shit.

        YES. Joan Rivers would be an amazing guest.

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

        Just last week I was thinking about how fab it would be for Joan to be a judge on PR. She has honed her style to near perfection (her propensity for fur would put some people off), she knows her shit, and she wouldn’t mince words. And I believe she does meet TLo’s criterion that our choice be someone who will never be asked to sit in that chair. The producers couldn’t possibly control her.

      Since I can’t choose TLo, I guess my dream judge would be someone (even a celebrity) who’s got a real body and can speak to real women’s fit issues. I don’t know. Maybe Oprah? Oh, what about Meryl Streep?!?!?! That would be awesome!

      I wonder who stole Anya’s money? Maybe it’s Laura, even though the tease assumes it’s a guy.

      And, I’m on the west coast, so I’ll read a bit of everyone’s intro comments and then bolt before 6PM EST so I don’t have any spoilers!

        Oh, was it stolen?  The promo I saw just said she lost it…

        • Anonymous

          I think what they’re trying to do with the promo is make us think there’s an accusation of cheating via stealing the $. Plus, I seem to remember hearing “cheating” in one of the promos.

          My take is, if you’re walking around with your envelope open, I don’t care how hectic the Mood time is, you deserve to have your money lost. But I’m mean like that.

          ETA: just re-watched the promo. Kimberly tosses out the word “sabotage” and Josh says “there’s a thief, it definitely wasn’t me.”

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

            Yeah, I’m with you.  Her money should have been tucked in somewhere it couldn’t fall out — It’s not like she needed to check how much was there, she knew what her budget was.

        • Eclectic Mayhem

          The longer promo (linked above) bandies about an accusation of theft.  I doubt anyone stole it.  

          I wouldn’t put it past Anya to self-sabotage now that her (lack of) sewing ability is starting to show.  That’s a bit cynical of me, I know.

          • Anonymous

            I thought about that myself. And then she goes into the judging and they say “Oh Anya, you were able to do this with only the 57 cents you had in your pocket, the muslin in the workroom, and Piperlime Accessories Wall? Who would think you’ve only been sewing for 4 months!”

            • Lori

              Hah!  Love this!

            • Eclectic Mayhem

              Yes!  I doubt she’ll go home over it, it’ll be one of those ‘snatching victory from the jaws of defeat’ – ‘look what Anya managed to do with muslin while (insert name of any non-judges’ pet) only managed this crap with a full budget!’ moments.

              I hate this season.  Why am I still watching?!

            • Anonymous

              But how on earth would anyone expect to get away with stealing money when there are cameras all over the place??? It’s like when Kara Saun was on the phone telling that person, “Just charge me something for the shoes – fifteen dollars each or something.” Dude, there are CAMERAS EVERYWHERE!! You *can’t* cheat and you definitely can’t steal! So I say it’s a big read herring. Lots of drama that leads nowhere, and they find it under a table at Mood.

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

              I don’t think so because they showed Tim telling her that she could only use muslin because that doesn’t come out of her budget. 

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

              I assume she’ll probably get leftover material from other people.

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

              Ha! I don’t doubt for a minute that the judges would do that. Now, if it happened to Viktor, they’d tell him they didn’t want to hear excuses and that he should have been able to make it work.

              Not that it would happen to Viktor. I can see him wearing a money belt at any and all times. It looks great with his ironed jeans. (Just picking on him a little. I’ve actually come to like him quite a bit)

          After I was forced into semi-retirement a couple of years ago, I decided to go to fashion design school.  There I was, a child of the 70s (class of 79), trying to explain to my young classmates about Qiana.  They had no concept.  I explained it is why I only wear natural fibers now.

            Yeah, Qiana eventually made me run like the wind in the direction of natural fabrics. I would rather wear wrinkled linen head to toe than ever even think about wearing Qiana again. I don’t know if they still make it. And by “make it” I mean create it out of petroleum and the tears of small children in a dark basement while reciting incantations in a now dead language. That stuff was evil.

      Well, I needn’t have any good ideas for guest judges, the rest of you did it for me.

      I like the Bowie & Iman pairing, or  Patsy & Edina (In character all the way through.

      Not particularly pertaining to this challenge, but in general I would love to see Janie Bryant (costume designer for Mad Men) as a guest judge. I’m a big fan of the idea of having guest judges who have reached a high level of achievement in design/other creative discipline backgrounds outside of the fashion industry. Sometimes when it’s other designers it’s a bit too “I would never make that personally” and when it’s just celebrities it’s “I would never wear that personally.” I think if it’s an art or design person who isn’t too connected to fashion they can provide the best criticisms.

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

        I totally agree. Janie Bryant is truly gifted at what she does. I think she would have some exceptional insight on the designs, and some great advice to give to the designers.

        I’m OK with other designers as guest judges. Sometimes they’re great, and sometimes not so much (if only because they’re not given enough screen time), but they do have a relevant perspective that they could pass on to the PR designers. And god knows this bunch sure as hell needs guidance and perspective.

        I really like the idea of having artists serve as guests judges, whether they’re painters or photographers or graphic designers. Apparently there are a lot of aspiring/young fashion designers out there who haven’t given much thought to how other kinds of art have a connection to fashion design.

      Anya needs to stop weeping. She can use the fabrics everyone gave to her, dye some muslin hot colors and make a crazy quilt maxi dress or skirt. Might be cool!!!

    • MilaXX

      Honestly I wear dresses a lot because I find them comfortable. i would go out like that to run errands, especially in the summer when it’s hot. I buy a bunch of maxi dresses & ballet flats or fancy flip flops

      • http://twitter.com/KathleenGillies Kathleen Gillies

        Chances are you have a bag/purse with you and don’t use your bra as a wallet while running errands.  Shopping in a big fabric warehouse is pretty physical.  I’d be wearing workclothes.  But then, what do I know?  I wear scrubs at work, the equivalent of color coded pajamas.  Thus my very practical nature when it comes to fabric shopping in NY.

        • MilaXX

          Not gonna lie I have used the boob wallet on occasion, but this year I bought a cross body bag for errand running. I’m not on Laura Bennett levels but I try not to walk around looking crazy. Every summer I buy a bunch of wash and wear easy dresses and a mix of cheap flats and cute flip flops. I am much more comfortable in them and I think like that it’s easy to add a pair of earrings and a swipe of lipgloss and still look half way decent.

      Mmm, trying to think of some off the path sort of people.  Of course TILDA would be fabulous. Helena Bonham Carter would likely be fun. Someone said David Bowie–great idea.  Other rockers–Henry Rollins, Marilyn Manson, Iggy Pop.  All very intelligent and with their own styles.

      I’d love to see some movie-related challenges…design a costume for a film, a look that evokes the feeling of a particular scene, whatever.  Of course I’d want TIM BURTON for that one…I’m a big fan.  Maybe he and HBC could judge together?  Christopher Nolan or M. Night Shyamalan might be fun for such a challenge, too.

          Actually, it’s got a pretty decent premise – the daughter in a family of all cops (father and 3 brothers are on the force) takes the detective’s exam, passes, but the only job available is in Internal Affairs.  The conflict with her on the “rat squad” is messing a bit with the close family dynamic and so there’s automatic tension.  It’s not an award winner but I think it’s a decent hour of TV each week.  The lead is a younger Meg Ryan.  And the cast is really good with the parents being played by Kathy Bates and Treat Williams.

      They LIKE Bert’s?  Sure, the mini is fine, but it’s so so SO boring.  It’s great clothes, but it’s not fashion.  And the too much booty, shiny black shorts?  They’re (unflatering) underwear.  There’s nothing remotely modern about the top.  It’s a costume. 

      And am I the only one that really hated Victor’s suiting look?  It just didn’t work together.  He made three fabulous pieces, the sum of which was far lessser than when considered individually.  I think it should cost him the win.

        Here’s what I think happened: despite that fact that Anya’s maxi dress wasn’t particularly original, it was the piece the powers that be decided (1) could be made easily and inexpensively, and (2) would sell very well on Piperlime. Viktor’s would have been more complicated, would cost more, and wouldn’t appeal to everyone. Anya’s, they figure, will fly off the rack. Therefore, despite not being nearly as sophisticated as Viktor’s pieces, nor as charming as Bert’s little Allie McGraw dress, Anya’s wins.

        • Anonymous

          Agreed that Victor’s would not have worked as well for Piperlime. 

           Bert’s little silk dress should do very well, and as they said, it can be produced in many different color stories.  His other pieces – other than the hot pants – were much better than Anya’s, but >sigh<, this is a reality show.  And now Anya "The Sleeveless Wondergirl," has got immunity and Bert's got nuthin'.   Can't believe the producers are allowing Josh even more camera time instead of sending him packing. His designs this week were all kinds of hideous, and have been from the start.  His "Village People" rocker last week was a flat-out embarrassment.

      After tonight there can be no doubt that the producers behind the scenes are controlling the outcome of the show. Anya. Really? That top was not very well made and the pants did not fit well at all. Victor’s was very well made, although I can see where the color may not have photographed as well as Anya’s second look. As for the losers, please. Anthony Ryan’s didn’t look great but Josh’s was a hot mess as was Laura’s. But the show needs the Josh drama, the Laura angst over clashing with Nina so neither of those two are going home. It’s not so much that I disagree with Anthony Ryan going home as his designs over the past few weeks have not been great, but it’s the fact that because he doesn’t bring the drama to the show. Whatever.

    • Lisa

      Okay, my two random cents:
      1.  I just think that win was bullshit.  That’s now the second time Anya has won for a fairly pretty but not great look – and it’s the second time that the win has been taken from Viktor for something he made that was far superior to Anya’s look. His looks were gorgeous, and he was robbed.  I know, I know – “the girl who can’t sew and lost all her money wins the challenge!” Wow, what a great story, right?!  I mean, please – we’re not dumb enough that we don’t smell “producers pick” all over this one yet again.  I get that this girl has a great backstory and is a great contestant, but that can’t be enough to award her two wins that should have been Viktor’s.
      2.  I do have to admit – it was DELICIOUS to find out, straight from TIm, that Nina hates Laura.  GLORIOUS!
      3.  How awesome for Bert! Not only does he rightfully rock the 70s challenge, but they’re going to sell his dress, even though he didn’t win.
      4. Really?  Anthony goes home instead of Clinique Counter?  Honestly?  Would that be because CC makes far better TV than Anthony?
      5.  I LOVED the other designers pointing out to Clinique that “I wasn’t alive yet in the 70s” is no freaking excuse, especially if you’re a fashion designer.

      • Cautiously Pessimistic

        In all fairness, while I agree that Viktor’s dress from the print challenge was vastly better than Anya’s, he didn’t use a print.  He dyed the fabric.  For a challenge that’s about using HP’s print manufacturing, it was entirely reasonable to refuse to give the win to a garment that didn’t use the thing that was the point of the challenge.  Sometimes the intent of the challenge hasn’t been all that clear, but for that challenge, I don’t think you can argue that.

      • BuffaloBarbara

        I actually agree that Anya shouldn’t have been first–but I’d have given it to Bert.  Viktor… no.  I know he has a huge fan following here at TLo, but that wasn’t attractive.

          I agree. Bert should have won. Why didn’t he at least share the win a la the team challenge where Viktor and eyebrows shared the win? If Anya wins the season, I’m not watching anymore.

          I love Viktor, and I loved his outfits.  I think they could have affordably sold his shirt and slacks on Piperlime. I think they gave the win to Anya because of the type of print.  I knew Bert’s dress was going to go up there because of those silver knots at the end that made it look expensive according to the Piperlime lady.

      I don’t know.  Maybe it’s that I think the ’70s are the most ridiculous decade of my life, but the only thing on that runway that I found remotely attractive was Bert’s second dress.  The only thing I liked about the ’70s was the funky, optimistic kid-music vibe (“Free To Be…”, “Schoolhouse Rock” etc).  The clothes… the decade should be erased from fashion history.

      But, Josh, it hasn’t been so erased.  So you have no excuse for not knowing it.  Everyone else seemed to, and even if they didn’t going in, YOU WERE GIVEN A DOSSIER ON YOUR LAPTOP.

      I would have given Bert the win, but I’m not upset about Anya getting it–if they like the jumpsuit, they like the jumpsuit.  That I don’t like big print flowy jumpsuits is probably just me.  Right?

      The auf’ee, on the other hand?  Yes, both of those guys turned out ass on the runway, but A.R. was just plain ass.  Josh’s was elongated, emphasized super-ass.

        Not almost at all. It was WELL worth it to see Clinique Counter and Blenley get bitch slapped. I have been gleefully quoting “HOR-REN-DOUS” all night and giggling. Nina was in rare form. And don’t forget that MK really, really does not like the color of old hardened chewed Dentyne cinnamon gum, the girls overruled him because the would all wear that jumpsuit. JUMPSUIT Anya not a JUMPER. It wasn’t a dress or a sweater *sigh*.

          “HOR-EN-DOUS!”  It’s still funny!

          I think that’s why I’m still watching – just to see Josh get auf’ed.  I know the producers love him but I simply cannot believe that his collection is in the final three.  I have a nasty feeling that Laura could “pull a Gretchen” though so no closure promised there.

          Thank you for pointing out about Jumpsuit/Jumper – something was niggling at me while I was watching the show but because Jumper in the US means something different than in the UK I just ignored the niggle.  And in case people don’t have the faintest idea what I’m talking about:

          US Jumper = UK Pinafore (wow, haven’t typed that word for a while – it looks really weird)
          UK Jumper = US Sweater

      Anya’s look may have been somewhat simple but remember, the challenge was to find something Piperlime could produce and sell.  Their stuff is pretty basic and Anya’s jumpsuit fits right in.  I think she deserved the win based on that criteria.

      I was super surprised that Ayna won give that the Judges seemed to like Viktor’s and Bert’s looks so much more during the critique. I thought she was going to be in the bottom, and I think she did too. I think everyone on the runway thought she was in the bottom. i guess We should have seen it coming since pretty much the same dress won her the HiediiNewBalanceAmazondotcom challenge.

          It was awful lucky that they added an extra “one piece” outfit to the challenge. And her winning look wasn’t that much different than Ryan Anthony’s 2nd losing look (I have no excuse or even words for is 1st losing look).

            And isn’t it interesting that she could lose that envelope and no one find it?  I mean, I assume they close Mood during the shoot, so the only folks there are the designers, production staff and some Mood employees.  Even if it didn’t turn up before she left, you’d think someone would’ve found it afterwards.

          I’d be more inclined to think that if there had never been a last minute addition to the challenge, but it happens every season, and it hadn’t happened yet with this bunch. It’s not like they think they have to to justify their decisions to the viewers. They do what they want. Gretchen’s win is evidence of that.

          Or maybe I’m hopelessly naive.

      *&^%$#@!!!  Are you *&^%$#  kidding me?  Shiny Ms. Hiney Clinique gets to stay even though his garments didn’t even remotely resemble a 70′s look?  Since when was day-glo leopard 70′s?  And those pants.  And that awful shirt. GAH!!!  And then he’s hugging Anthony at the end like he’s going to miss him?  Bitch, please. You’d better have been thanking him and the fashion gods that your neck was spared once more.
          As for the top three, I thought the second looks for each were better than the first.  If Bert’s hot pants had been a decent length (although I did see a little drool on Frau Seal’s mouth when they came down the runway….but I digress), I think he would have won.  LOVED his second look.  If I-need-a-Midol-Victor had made the t-shirt with a plunging, flowy, “sexy” neckline, he’d have won (but I thought the suit looked a little bland, all that gray on gray).  Anya won because the jumpsuit would “photograph” the best for online sale.  I’m still very underwhelmed by what we’ve seen so far.

        Agree.  I also noticed Heidi coveting the hot pants.  I also thought it was hilarious that half of Nina’s Clinique critique was ragging on the tacky leopard shoes . . . from the Piperlime wall!  With Ms Piperlime sitting right there!

      It feels like they would have given the win to Bert (RIGHTLY), but the producers wanted to give Anya the win, so they threw Bert a you know… bone.  Viktor’s was also win-worthy, though I feel like Bert’s followed the challenge more and was more 70′s with a modern twist.  IF they had to pick two looks, I’d say Viktor’s jacket and either of Bert’s looks.  Anya’s?  Really?  That jumpsuit was NOTHING.  It was all about a dramatic ending.  How can Nina stand it?

      Also, Clinique should have been AUF. How long are they going to milk Ms. Dramarama? Is it a reward for throwing temper tantrums?

            Well, I understand the usual retail markup is 100%, so if you add in the designer-to-retailer markup, otherwise known as creativity and labor, it sort of make sense (and might even be pretty cheap).  BUT, when you think about how $50 was emphasized on the show, you do kinda wonder who wants to pay $200 for that dress.

      At least they picked the correct top and bottom three.  I would have been happy to see either Josh or Blenley go home as each did a worse job than Anthony Ryan (though Laura’s second look wasn’t all that bad her first was horrid).  I gasped – and not in a good way – when I saw the first outfits of Josh and Laura on the runway.  I will say in his defense that the plaid Josh used was reminiscent of the early to mid-seventies – but the design and fit were terrible.  Along with others, I just don’t get the Anya love. Never have and never will which means I fully expect her to be the winner this year.  I would have given the win this week to Viktor.

        I agree on the plaid- it was actually very 70′s- but BAD 70′s, and made worse by being poorly cut.  His red and black shirt was like Star Trek The Next Generation at a formal affair- I didn’t hate it but it wasn’t 70′s at all. Josh knew nothing of the era and didn’t try to research- and he was VERY defensive about it.

          Totally agree. I have to say that I was impressed with what Anya was able to do after having lost her money, and I believe the judges were too. The decisive factor, though, was definitely the fact that Anya’s design was much simpler and easier to mass-produce. Bert’s dress as well. Shoot, I could probably sew that dress, and my sewing skills are quite basic.

      I couldn’t get enough of a handle on Anya’s to tell how well it was made or exactly what was going on with it. They both looked like basic, if pretty, garments. Not win worthy from what I could see, but maybe some close-ups will change my mind. Viktor was the clear winner again, and again he was robbed.

      I’m so sad my honey pie Anthony Ryan is gone. I was hoping that Josh or Laura would go instead, but I knew they weren’t going anywhere. I loved A.R.’s little hippie girl dresses. I just wish he had taken them up a level or two.

      The judges were so brutal to Josh that I almost couldn’t watch it. But I couldn’t feel bad for him either, because that was some ugly crap. Then he went into a temperamental little snit because Viktor had the nerve to tell him that seeing a movie that was made before the year 2000 might not be a bad idea. It must be terrible to be such a special snowflake and not have anyone appreciate it. Life can be so very hard for a creative genius like Josh,

      • Anonymous

        Special snowflake indeed, and one with impeccable eyebrows to boot. Poor Josh. His reaction to anything but adoration is narcissistic rage: I’m the best and no one should expect anything of me other than my beingness. He was really injured by the notion that he should have had some sense of fashion history, as Victor rather quietly remarked. All that said, he can be very entertaining, but as the pressure mounts we’re going to see more and more of his outrage that his specialness isn’t enough.

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

          Ha! I wish I’d had Josh as a client when I was the self-proclaimed Waxing Queen of Central PA. I could have paid my rent from his appointments alone.

          You  nailed it with “narcissistic rage”. He treats other people like crap because he’s deemed them unworthy and not cool enough to bask in the fabulousness of his glow, but falls apart like a 5 year old if the unworthy peasants give him the tiniest criticism, or even try to give him some advice. Viktor was right, and Josh knew it. But he cannot handle being challenged.

        • Anonymous

          I couldn’t believe Josh’s insistance that a fashion designer doesn’t need to have any knowledge of fashion history. 
          I’m still kind of floored that he expects to make a career out of this, yet he believes that just because he didn’t live in the 70s, he doesn’t need to know what people were wearing then.  

      • Anonymous

        I loved AR too; he was such a cutie. Josh should have gotten the boot for those hideous outfits, but he makes for better TV so he stays.
        Also, Tim clearly stated that they were to take inspiration from high-end 70s fashion, not the peace and love outfits of the masses, but what did AR do? He created hippie dresses.

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

          And I knew AR was in trouble when I saw that he was making hippie dresses. If he wanted hippie, he should have gone hippie chic. If he’s seen Almost Famous, he could have used Kate Hudson’s character as inspiration. But I never expected him to make it to the final three, and his work for this challenge wasn’t exactly stellar, so it wasn’t a complete surprise.

          I just wish Josh had gone because 1) his outfits were hideous, and 2) he’s toxic and I’m sick of him. I can’t even laugh at him. He’s too much of a horrible person.

      I love how delusional Josh is even when Nina/Heidi clearly want to jump on that stage and burn those ugly prints in the name of FASHION! I also love all the faces full of disgusts when Nina is forced to look at Laura’s, Josh’s, and Anthony’s. Nina <3 "I mean, can you imagine THIS SHIT online?" 

      Top 3 was absolutely correct, even though I like Viktor's stuff a bit better. But I guess Anya was awarded the win because of how she lost the money and still managed to make some good things out of it. 

      Just let me have a moment and forget those awful acid-washed prints.

        Seal would be great too. I like TLo’s suggestion that they should design for him and he would be the guest judge. It would certainly make more sense than designing for “The Sheepdogs”. No offense to them; I really respect them for being SUCH good sports about the whole thing, but they’re not exactly the most stylish group of men I have ever seen.

        Hey, and Bert’s dress, too. It looks like they were able to do it exactly.
        Agreed about Viktor’s tee. I suspect that Bert’s and Anya’s got picked because they are easy to cut and produce, whereas even the tee was quite a little masterpiece with the centered fabric and might be harder to pump out in quantities. That’s the only way I can explain why Viktor didn’t win: he put so much work into those pieces that they would be expensive to copy. Whereas Bert’s dress or Anya’s jumpsuit would be easy to size up or down, machine cut, and assemble.

        • http://twitter.com/KathleenGillies Kathleen Gillies

          I really liked Bert’s dress.  It was classic, covered you in the right spots, very easy to dress up or down–can wear almost anywhere.  Anya’s– well, it is loose flowy, the print does the heavy lifting and side boob is a big problem.  The problem with designing only with yourself in mind is that after a season or 2 you are known to be very one-note.

            I loved Bert’s dress too, but it’s definitely for a girl who doesn’t have a lot of curves. My boobs n butt, as much as I like them, would interrupt the clean lines of that dress and it just wouldn’t be very flattering, especially with the tie thing around the middle. But it’s a great little dress for a really slim girl.
            Anya’s jumpsuit was also great, and I think it could be worn by a woman with a chest. As with any outfit, it depends on the woman and how much cleavage she’s comfortable showing. 

            • http://twitter.com/KathleenGillies Kathleen Gillies

              His dress would be fine for a woman with a bust so long as it had darts to allow for the extra room needed, plus it is a knit– a double faced jersey.  The jumpsuit can accomodate a large bust nicely with the gathers but would need some mechanism to rein them in as a bra would show on the side and middle.  The elastic waist gathered bottom would make this more pajamamy feeling and will emphasize a little belly.  This is definitely a “when are you due?” garment.

        Fact is, most women won’t wear jumpsuits, even if they don’t look hideous.  They are simply completely impractical.

    • margaret meyers

      Anthony didn’t have the background or aesthetic for making the kinds of clothes they are looking for on PR. 

       His Lousiana college girl/fashion forward good ol’ gal looks were all very young, very work-a-day, and kind of Tom Boy.  She’s the best dressed girl at the bar.  His woman shops at Kohls, indy shop in college towns and thrift stores and sometimes hits the Mall if she needs something special.That’s why Kors and Nina found his look so alien and sad.

      I have bad news, guys. Most of our bartenders are not hot. Even fewer of them can mix a good cocktail. And almost all of them actually use a spirit measure to dish out the over-priced vodka. Stick to NYC where the bartenders are hotter, friendlier and looser with the vodka.

    • Anonymous

      Oh. My. God.  Over the years, I’ve seen people post that the judging is so messed up that they won’t watch the show anymore.  I’ve always dismissed that as being hyperbolic.  However, last night’s proceedings left me feeling the same way.  Anya’s just OK paper bag pants and a top she crafted out of dyed muslin and jump suit with pants that were SO OUT OF PROPORTION were rewarded.  I would never buy anything she made.  I applaud her for her “make it work” moment.  I think she rocked it in that perspective.  But this is supposed to be a design competition, and if you lose your money and you don’t know how to sew, sorry.  Thems the breaks.  Bert’s little silk Jersey dress was admittedly very cute, something was off in the hem, maybe it was just the fit.  His first look however, well, I just wasn’t into it.  It was innovative in the top, but the bottom was just a mess.  I can’t believe you can send booty shorts with ass cheek cleavage onto the runway and not get speared by La Garcia or Tanorexic Kors. 

      But the fact that Victor did not win this challenge is a downright insult to worldwide fashion.   The fact that the judges acted SURPRISED that he made beautiful clothes was so weird.  Have we been watching the same runway all season long???  He has CONSISTENTLY made beautiful clothes and was robbed of the win on at least 2 other occasions in favor of Anya or someone else.  In my opinion, Clinique Counter’s outfit was the clear loser last night.  Words don’t describe the fashion crimes committed by that horrid “tuxedo shirt” TUCKED IN to those blasphemous pants. 

      At least Nina ripped him for the print he used.  You can’t buy taste. 

      Fan favorite Anthony Ryan made boring clothes.  No doubt he deserved his spot in the bottom three.  But at least his clothes didn’t commit crimes. 

      Victor is the winner, Josh is the loser of this challenge.

      Sorry for the long ass rant.  I feel only mildly better now.

      Oh dream judge:  McQueen.

        • Anonymous

          I think McQueen was a genius.  Clothes were his medium for art, and like many artists, he had a fascination for the grotesque.  At first, I didn’t “get” his clothes.  But once I stopped looking at them as clothes and started looking at them as art, I began to see just how truly complicated his art was.  I think he would have been a great judge for one of the “use this museum as your inspiration” types of challenges.  I think it would really separate the women from the girls.  Or the men from the boys.  If you haven’t looked  at the photos from The Met exhibit, you should.  It gives a lot more context to his clothes, and you get to stare at his expertly constructed  art.

      I guess that’s right.  But then why not specify:  Don’t make beautiful, impeccably sewn and tailored clothes.  Make something that is department store chic that is easy to reproduce by small Asian children.  This used to be a design competition.  Now it’s just Project Department Store.

      Viktor had the best design but they gave the win to Anya because hers would be super easy to reproduce and sell. Also, Bert was smart and used the Piperline stuff the best and got the nod from them. They know Viktor is the best designer but they want the others to feel competitive and gave the win to somebody else.
