T LOunge

Posted on October 20, 2011

Our previous post has put us in a colorful mood – but let’s face it; when are we NOT in a colorful mood? – so let’s all head on over to Edinburgh, where the men wear skirts and the bars are designed by Missoni.

Bar Missoni in Edingburgh, United Kingdom

 

Which reminds us, we managed to snag the Missoni demitasse set from Target but we have yet to use them because they’re just so pretty. Seeing as how Miss Miu Miu has learned how to get up on top of the bookcases next to the sideboard on which they’re displayed, we remain in mortal fear that she’s going to leap down on them and send them all crashing to the floor. We keep telling her that she’ll be living on the streets if she does such a thing (especially after breaking a Jonathan Adler vase when she was a mere slip of a kitten), but so far, she seems unimpressed with our threats. Besides, there’s a boy cat wandering the neighborhood that she’s got her eye on, so we’re thinking she likes the idea of living on the streets right now. Sometimes he jumps up on our windowsills and she starts sounding like a teenage girl meeting Justin Bieber for the first time.

Anyway.

 


Yaddayaddayadda. Finalists…claws out, etc. At least we get the home visits, which will finally give Tim something to do besides cross his arms and look concerned.

 

So it looks like they’ve got one final challenge to determine who the final three are. Place your bets now, bitches. Who’s going to have his or her dreams crushed tonight?

As for the Question of the Week: What was the ONE look from the competition this season that wowed you the most?

Sadly, we can’t come up with any, but Viktor’s hand-printed dress for the HP challenge was probably the best thing all season, with Kimberly and Becky’s stiltwalker costume coming in second. The only reason that piece isn’t the Number One is because we stubbornly maintain that the stiltwalker challenge was one of the worst in the history of the show.

      I’d have to agree on Viktor’s HP print dress. Really most of Viktor’s things, honestly. Also, you guys just make me want a cat even more than I already do.

        Viktor’s very first dress caught my eye immediately and I’ve never forgotten it. So I guess that’s my favorite ’cause I can’t remember much else that pleased me as much as that white frock.

    • Joshua

      I can’t come up with any offhand, which shows you how lacklustre this season has been, but glancing back at some pictures … ugh, fuck it. They all suck. Looking at Laura’s last look in her collection, it’s a damn shame we didn’t see more of that.

      Hmmm, Olivier’s Dog store dress, or Viktor’s avant garde look. 

    • Anonymous

      For the third week in a row I’m remarking, “Oh, it’s that time again, again?”  Alas, there were NO memorable garments in this season – and I’ve just been whiling away the past hour looking at the August T Lo posts for the episodes I missed.  Boy, when I think of the wow-ser designs from past seasons (the Chris March/Christian Sirano fabulous collared gown AND the Jillian & (don’t remember the other name) stunning coatdress, Leanne’s Judy Noodles confections, Mondo’s Jackie O purple & houndstooth check suit that still pops up in my memory, Laura B’s apartment contents glam coatdress with fuzzy collar, Uli’s rockin’ blue short dress for Nazri …. ) nothing but nothing from this season is even in the same time zone.

      I’ll watch tonight, but I’ll be disgruntled.

      All the best, nonetheless,

        Such a sad season…. Looking back there have been some fabulous memorable fashion….. Jeffrey Sebelia’s yellow plaid couture gown & his green and white satin striped dress in the finale, Mondo’s polka dot gown, Austin Scarlett’s blue velvet bathing suit, Rami’s olive green woven bodice evening dress, Jay’s red dress from the season 1 finale….Nothing this season comes close to being memorable……

      I’d have to say my favorite look was the one I gave the TV whenever Josh had a fit.

      Even in a good season I have a hard time remembering things from one week to the next. I’d have to go back and look at everything.

      Like most everybody else, I’m drawing a blank on a favorite look. Just nothing that memorable this season.

      I loved Viktor’s dress from the HP print challenge, his suit from the sophisticated 70’s challenge, and the final look in his collection. If he doesn’t win this season, I’ll… well… I’ve already stopped watching the show, and I can’t be bothered to write to the producers or Lifetime… um… I’ll scowl at the computer when I read the results on your website. I’ll scowl EXCESSIVELY.

      What a terrible season of the show. I feel kind of ashamed for everyone involved with it.

      TLo, you know darn well that Miss Miu Miu thinks nothing of your threats. And letting her on the stoop with her boyfriend is only going to encourage her.

      Speaking of cats: How to entertain a restless, bored, hyperactive cat who keeps walking across your keyboard and sticking him butt in your face – give him a grape to play with. I’m not even kidding.

            Interesting. I had an akita for years that used to eat grapes with me. I’d have one, and he’d have one, until the bunch was gone. Concords were his favorite. He loved all grapes, though, and never got sick.

      As much as I hate to admit it, Josh’s top from the pet store challenge is the only thing all season that’s sticking in my head.

      You don’t need to be stubborn to maintain that the stiltwalker challenge the stupidest in the show’s history.  You just need to have watched the show for most of its history.

      Who’s dream? My money’s on Kimberley, because she hasn’t been focused on all season.  No other reason.

    • Now I am The Bee

      Favorite look from the entire season. 

      (crickets)

      I can’t think of a one. 

      That is sad.  What is also sad is that they play several hours of PR before the new episode each week, and not once have I stopped on it when channel surfing.  Well–whatever…

      The lounge is lovely and I’d love to have a vodka–but it is so frickin’ cold and windy here today, and even though I know that in February this woud be a warm day, I need a cup of coffee with a generous shot of good brandy in it.  And whipped cream on top.  Warm and yummy. 

      And–I’ll buy a round for everyone.  We all need a stiff drink to brace ourselves for the upcoming mess that has become PR.

      • Now I am The Bee

        Although now that I think about it–I realy like Becky’s aquarium fern dress.  Cute and colorful!

      Edinburgh!  Home of my people!  Yay! (Still disgruntled the husband wouldn’t wear a kilt for our wedding)

      Favorite look?  Bert’s boxer dress.  I thought it was cute.

      • Anonymous

        Shannon, do straight men know that straight women find men in kilts irresistible?  I know that gay men know how good that look is because I lived in Boys Town in Chicago for many years, and for two delightful summers, wearing a kilt with black worker boots and white socks was the major look at every street festival, in every restaurant, etc.  I really enjoyed all that eye candy.

        But seriously:  If your husband knew how hot most women find men in kilts, would it make a difference?

        • Anonymous

          Mostly we (straight men that I know) think of kilts as half a joke. That and kilts are such a niche we can’t just go buy a levi’s kilt on sale some where, so it’s a lot of money for something we’re basically joking about.

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

            First of all, I would highly recommend not making those jokes to Scotsmen, as I would be concerned for your health:)  The kilt’s a pretty big thing.

            And I know cost wasn’t the issue, because I said I’d make it for him. 

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

          No… For one thing, he told me that as obviously Scottish as he is not, it would be silly (he’s full Han Chinese).  And he’s of the opinion that he got married so he didn’t have to convince anyone he was hot — I clearly already thought so and he’s not looking to sleep with other people:)  He’s so simple sometimes…

          What men fail to realize is that you have to be totally masculine and comfortable with your gender and sexuality to wear a kilt, and that’s very appealing.  Not to mention, Scotsmen tend to be uber-manly — these are the people who gave us the claymore and tossing the caber.  Which is rather a stupid sport, but you’ve got to be ripped to throw anything that heavy that far — makes throwing shot put look like a game for children:)

            “What men fail to realize is that you have to be totally masculine and comfortable with your gender and sexuality to wear a kilt, ”

            No see we actually totally get that, and that’s the problem. We see them as slightly less subtle than just wearing a sandwich board with “I’m manly RHAR!” written on it… which is fine for ‘events’ or what not, just wandering around though it’s a ridiculous pleated pick up line.

      After dragging my unwilling self to the Lifetime webpage (truly sucktastic), I have dredged up a Viktor creation for the wives challenge.
      A sheer blue teal blouse and gray skirt with wide gold border at hem, to refresh your memories. I also liked his long black dress for the fabric design challenge but it looked better in motion than in the still photo.

        Oh yeah, that teal Viktor dress was my favorite.  I even liked the necklace they thought was too much.

      I can’t imagine them sending Miss Clinique home due to the high drama factor, which is a shame, and I think I’d pass out from shock and joy if they sent Anya packing. Unfortunately I think it’s  Kimberley we won’t be seeing in the finale.

Ummm….. well….let’s see…hmm. The only thing that comes to mind is the first jacket Viktor made. I dunno.

      Oh, Miss Miu Miu you little homeless harlot wannabe. I thought once my kids grew up I wouldn’t have to worry about all my pretties anymore. Nice thought. A cat and two dogs. At least this cat doesn’t sneak onto the mantle at night to break my coveted pretties like our dearly departed Caesar did.

      My bet is that Kimberly will be kicked in the ass and left to bleed to death on the curb. The only thing that would actually surprise me, in terms of what BM has planned for the finale–and the “greatest runway in the world,” or whatever that bullshit line was in the preview, would be that Anya wouldn’t make it.  Otherwise, bring it, douchebags!  I’ve got bourbon and I can take whatever you hand out.

      I had to review – I probably liked Viktor’s HP dress best. And his outfit for that overly stylish Real Woman. Very nice – but neither wow-worthy. Sad. (Looking back – the very idea of smacking him down for that gorgeous little clutch because it was too much combined to the sponsor’s hideous necklace – that he was probably contractually obligated to use… that’s the season in a nutshell for me.)

      I’m hopeful that tonight we get to see the Drama Vortex get flushed into obscurity. I also have a nagging feeling that this season’s hissie-trionics will comprise the vast majority of an audition reel for the next season of The A-List.

      I agree with Viktor’s HP print dress, but I also covet the “real woman” challenge dress that Viktor made.

      Re: this season sucking … I was recently re-watching Season 3, and in the “fashion icon” episode (home of the AMAZING Pam Grier look!) several of the designers said things like “this is such a GREAT challenge,” and “I’m so excited about this challenge”–words we haven’t heard on the show for awhile.  And in that Season 3 challenge, their MODELS picked their muses for them, and it STILL turned out better work and better attitudes from the designers.  Fashion icons are infinitely more relevant than 70’s-influenced rock bands and stilt walkers.  If only the producers would spend less time trying to come up with new ridiculous concepts for challenges and more time thinking about what might push the designers to do interesting work.  Alas…

      My top #1 look of the season is a toss up – it’s between Kimberly’s look for Nina, which was so chic and I loved it.  My other choice is  Viktor’s leather jacket and cute crinkle cotton dress during the Heidi’s “What looks cute with these ugly sneakers?” challenge.  The fact that he created an adorable head to to look for freaking SNEAKERS is fabulous.

      I’m so glad HGTV rescheduled ‘Selling NY’ to 10:30 so I can watch that and skip the craptastic PR aftershow.  I love looking at pricey NY real estate with very little drama involved.

      Viktor’s HP gown is my favorite too, followed very very closely by Half-Sack’s birdseed dress.

    • http://summerborn.livejournal.com/ Summer Born

      For my favorite look of the season, I’ll go all the way back to the very first episode, when we were all filled with such hope for the season. Remember how much fun it was to watch that hour-long “prequel” to get to know the designers better? Remember how there used to be 20 of them and it seemed like there was at least a handful – or maybe 6 or 7! – who would be sure to come up with *something* interesting over the course of the season?

      Remember how much hope we had for Bert? I choose Bert’s first winning dress as my favorite look of the season.

      As it happens, I think Bert’s story-arc over the course of the season was delightful – we all panicked when he was an ass in Episode 2, and then the redemption began. Thank you, Bert!

      I’m watching the World Series tonight, so I might catch it on DVR. Or maybe I’ll read the comments here first to see if it’s even worth my time.

      Best look? I really think it was Kimberly and Becky’s stiltwalker challenge outfit, craptastic challenge or no. But then again, they’re two of the only contestants I even liked this season (Bert was OK after a while, but everyone else just grates).

    • Stefanos Mantyla

      Wowed us in a good way or a bad way?

      If you mean the latter, anything from Josh will do, I suppose. Also Bryce’s pet shop look, perhaps.

      As for the former, Kimberley’s All About Nina look must be my number one. So armourlike, and yet so deceptively wearable, and so suitable for Nina. In fact, this is probably why Kimberley is (still) my personal favourite at this point. And I think by merit of politics she should be in the Final.

      I know you two weren’t so fond of it, and the execution was undeniably poor, Anthony’s brushstroke gown is the look that sticks most in my head from this season.

      And I must say, I think it’s adorable that your cat is named Miss Miu Miu.  I would expect nothing less from a pair of fabulous fashion bloggers.

      Worst case scenario: If Josh would (just so happen to be tasteful and smart enough (I know, right? Haha! Just bear with me, here.) to) pick out the best three pieces from his collection to show, and if all the rest (just so happen to be dumb enough to) pick their worst three pieces each, can Josh come out looking better than any of them? Is it possible?

      Sorry, but I can’t in good conscience use the words “wow” and “Season 9″ in the same sentence.  The sooner forgotten, the better.  I’d rather hang out at the bar than watch the show tonight!

      The only thing that wowed me this season was the absolute blackholeness of it all, as in wow, there is just nothing going on this season.

      I’m rooting for Kimberly but because I like what I see of her, but not her garments.  That Clinique is even eligible for the finals says it all.

    • Anonymous

      Although there were garments I liked here and there, I don’t think I uttered a single good WOW this season; all my Wows were of the I-can’t-believe-this-crap variety.

      And that goes for the models, hair and make-up as well.

      Screw Project Runway, I wanna hear more about your cats.

      Okay, one look that wowed me? I actually cannot think of one. Isn’t that sad? I did like the motorcycle type jacket Viktor did. Was that for the sneaker challenge?

      I scrolled back to page 13 and looked at the remaining fours’ entries.  I think Miss Kimberly had the most interesting of the four.  Anya still didn’t have a single sleeve.  Viktor’s was good…and will sell easily.  Clinique’s…a train wreck.

      If I have to pick a look that wowed me, it would have to be Olivier’s pet shop outit. I really shouldn’t even say that it wowed me but it was certainly memorable what with the styling and all. Anyway, I can’t believe this season is over. I am so incredibly disappointed.

      For me – it’s a tie between the first challenge win and Laura’s bird outfit.  I would wear both – more of the top for Laura’s – and so I like those.

      I’m wondering about Tim and Anya’s talk tonight.  It looks like there’s some words or something happening there due to his “you can’t get outside help” line that came out.  Dun dun duuuunnnnnn.  ^.^

        I hope Anya is not disqualified, I don’t love everything she does, like the judges seem to, and I hate when someone is a “pet” but I do like her style and her collection (and Laura’s) is better than most others.

    • Anonymous

      Why, oh why didn’t we see anything as memorable this season as Laura’s last black runway dress? That’s definitely a ‘wow’, along with the first dress she showed. The only thing that even approached a ‘wow’ for me during the season was Viktor’s HP dress. A really sad, lackluster season, with the contestants seemingly chosen for the drama factor rather than talent. And the Lifetime stamp all over it. Makes me wish I’d spent my time more productively. Never thought I’d say that about PR–it’s been my favorite show for years.

      Okay, I’ll snap out of the doldrums…a Glenfiddich straight up, please, in honor of the lounge!

      Wow.  That was a pretty sad grouping of mini-collections. 

    • Anonymous

      Was quite moved by Kimberly’s home visit (and how lovely she looked) as well as Viktor’s bereavement.  It was a lot of home-visit weepiness, though I actually thought it was genuine.  After the tears, though, I was pretty appalled by most of the four’s lack of direction and progress.  Poor Tim, Ol’ Mr. Northern European fair-skin, got a trip to Trinidad and courted sunburn, but nothing to see on the hangers. Has that ever happened in previous seasons, or did he visit later on in the manufacturing process?

      Am not thinking any of the clothes shown so far hold a candle to Laura Kathleen’s decoy.  Hoo boy.  I think we are in for a lot of lacrimal salt water for the next 25 minutes in order to justify the airtime.

      I definately don’t feel she deserves to be in the finale, but that’s the judges fault. It’s not like she purposely sent any other designers home herself or held the producers at gunpoint. yeesh.

        Points taken.  At least she’s learned from some of her previous experiences (and a youthful indiscretion or so involving a video camera – take heed, kiddies).  Sure, she’s calculating, but her remarks do play better than Drama Vortex’s self-conscious preening and posturing.

        Well… those observations of mine were hardly news flashes.  And… that’s another flaw in this season.  The utter predictability and lack of genuine surprise.  Being given whip-lash by the producers’ ham-handed forcing (foisting) their storyline upon us has stifled any possibility of entertaining unexpectedness.  And with that yawning gap, this minion is off to dreamland, with no thoughts of the twelve outfits paraded this evening – heck, I don’t think I can remember 2/3 of them.

          Wow.  A “youthful indiscretion.”  Is that what we’re calling releasing a sex tape these days?

          You know what I call it?  Another Move from a Fame Whore.

          • Anonymous

            I’m labeling it a “youthful indiscretion” because I honestly don’t know anything about it beyond a few brief mentions here.  I was out of the country for most of August, so missed any salacious tidbits about the contestants disclosed then.  I’m not defending or condoning making or releasing sex tapes – by this time in the second decade of the 21st century anyone who doesn’t realize that injudicious behavior almost never stays in the private realm and invariably is made very, very public is naive at best or arrogantly ignorant at worst.

            That said, every, EVERY person on this program is competing for his or her media-generated allotment of fame.  The judges, the contestants, the stylists, the mentor.  Those that find the lens of scrutiny too overwhelming should not apply; in recent seasons we’ve seen a couple of designer-competitors withdraw voluntarily because the pressures (and scrutiny by “the world” may or may not be one of them) outweigh the potential rewards.

            An acquaintance of mine was being considered for a slot in Season 2 of “Work of Art,” and I heard from a mutual close friend that the vetting process, the disclosures and the contractual obligations were massive.  Any contestant who is selected, having undergone that vetting/paperwork execution drill, has to know that he or she is going to be under a media microscope.  Failure to disclose negative information probably could invalidate the contractual relationship the contestant has with the production company and network, and potentially could result in that person being removed from the show.

            Most of us have done things that we regret to varying degrees and want buried – lessons learned.  If you don’t want it uncovered, don’t compete for a slot on a game show, run for public office or be in consideration for the next opening on the Supreme Court.

            All the best,

Ugh ugh ugh.

      Also WTF, Josh made a drumper… a damn drumper. I thought the dress had split open and the model was wearing leggings for modesty. Furthermore, that neckline I’m pretty sure I’ve seen something similar from Lanvin or someone else. Either way it’s not his idea.

      That was some comedy gold right there. Josh cracks me up–that evening gown jumpsuit was truly truly memorable.  “Love it from the front, HATE it from the back!”  You’re in!  Kimberly’s pink skirt also hard to forget–thank you, Heidi, for getting over the playing with volume concept and stating the obvious.  Anya — what on earth did she spend 5 weeks doing in Trinidad-Tobago?  Clearly not a whole lot on the designing and sewing front.  Viktor’s white jacket with cool lining, Mondo, was the highlight.  Tim made me smile with all his in and out of the woods jazz at the end.  He’s such a sweetheart.  Time for the show creators and producers to go on an extended retreat and figure out what on earth happened to their program.

      This is so unfair to Kimberly. They are just setting her up for a scathing critique to justify their final decision. So Nina hates Kimberly’s palette? Well I can’t wait to hear what BS she shovels up to convince us she loves Josh’s eye-searing colors and prints.

      I wish I could manage a sliver of hope they are faking us out and will give it to Viktor, but I’m afraid they are just setting him up as well. Basically Viktor’s critique boiled down to “It’s just too much fabulousness all at once, you need to step back!” Honestly, at this point it’s better if he doesn’t win–he’s too good for this shit.

      • margaret meyers

        Viktor’s critique was strange.  You have too many good pieces!  Kimberley had the flip side:  you had another piece for that look and you didn’t send it out!?!
        That zippered over-skirt was fabulous.  I think Nina just wanted to see the dress with the zippers closed a bit to create less volume (we never did see that), and then everyone gasped when the whole zipper skirt came off.  It was a separate!  Great idea.

            Basically. Mr. Orange told him to pair that great jacket with a simple black pant and t-shirt. I get the critique that too much is overwhelming for one look, but what infuriates me is had Viktor given them the simple black pant and t-shirt with the jacket, they’d ding him for “the jacket’s great but the rest is boring, has no design, you only have 10 looks, everything should wow us.” It’s just all so obvious.

Dog blankets, depressed Brazilian chick, hair dresser, Bryce, Mormon-in-the-closet.  Oh, the tulle disaster from the stilt-walker challenge wowed me a lot based largely on how freakin awful it was, lol.  So that’s the one that wowed me the most.  You didn’t specify a good wow…

      if they knew in advance–& they did–that no matter what anya did she was gonna win this whole mess anyway, why didnt they at least provide her w/ some sort of proper coaching or constant critique or something so it wouldnt appear so flagrantly obvious that she’s still there for reasons other than design talent?

      cos that is why people hate anya. it has less to do w/ anya or anything she makes than w/ the obvious trickery in keeping her as a winning contestant. i’m sure other people have said this but it’s her obvious inflation that people despise. if PR had done it differently, i doubt the commentariat would be so very incensed by her unfortunate transcendance.

      the only items worth any salt at all among all of these {at least from lifetime‘s stills} seem to be kimberly’s glittery sheath & a couple looks of viktor’s. the rest of the stuff is at best forgettable & at worst just plain bad. & theyre all going to fashion week.

But there was no reason she couldn’t have done more research and received more training (not help with her collection, just general training), on her own dime, once she got back home.

        He’s even a drama queen when he’s alone. OK, there were cameras there, but he would have done that brooch clutching if he had been the only one in the room.

      Honestly, I couldn’t come up with one standout look either. I would have to review all the eps to find one, and that ain’t happenin’.

      Tonight was yet another milestone in the show’s decline, and another indication of just how much the show’s current runners don’t understand what it’s supposed to be. I’m comfortable saying I could be done with PR, because the multitude around me saying the same thing tells me that I’m not just being an internet crank.

      I won’t be watching Accessory; I don’t care about finding the next great handbag/jewelry designer — every celebutard in Us Magazine has a jewelry line. I will be watching All-Stars to root for the Bravo-era designers and Mondo. But they better not ruin that too. After that, I really don’t know.

        At the end of last season when the Immortal Fashion Icon Gretchen won, I vowed I was done with the show…AND I was.  Never watched in again.  I did Keep T&L on my bookmarks, however, for their brilliant and easy to scan collection reviews and movie star fashion statements.  It’s my favorite and much easier to navigate than the clunky NY Times collection pictures and the insufferable Cathy Horne.

        And so I check back from time to time on TOM & LORENZO to rejoice in what I’m missing PRwise. I’m so glad I didn’t get drawn in again.  The show just got so …….. 
        Oh fill in your own endless list of horror.
        PR addicts, recovery is possible (though not from Iman).

      Don’t they usually throw one last challenge for the final designers after they arrive for fashion week? 

      • Anonymous

        Yes, but they couldn’t this time because the winner (Anya) still hadn’t finished her colleciton.

      • Anonymous

        I know, past designers are going, ‘wait, where’s the make a wedding dress with your scraps challenge?’ I’m not sure why they didn’t do it? It would only be of benefit to Anya as they usually give them a past contestant to help and that person could finish her collection for her.

        I wish they would do that again(not the scraps part but wedding dress for the collection). Those gowns Korto and Leanne made were lovely. Though I can see Anya’s now. A simple silk halter dress for a beach wedding of course.

      So, did Josh’s black mullet dress (business in the front, transparent cat suit in the back) stay that way for the runway at Fashion Week or did he fix it?  That was a cat suit with a BIB!

      Wow.  Just…wow.  I mean.  How far up Anya’s ass are those judges?  Do they think they’re fooling anyone?  But really, what’s the point?  Do they think in a couple days she’s gonna polish her turds enough to beat Viktor?  If he doesn’t win, it’s Mondo 2.0.  Except Mondo…you know, is head and shoulders above this entire season of designers.

      I think what we need now is a spin-off in which Heidi, Kors, and Nina have to design, sew, and style a look. Mondo and Austin can be the judges.

        Wonderful idea. Let’s add Rachel Zoe as a contestant and find the nastiest past contestants as judges. Wendy Pepper perhaps? Santino?

      Thank you TLo and bitter kittens.  I didn’t record the train wreck last night so I was counting on you all to fill me in.  I watched an amazing documentary on OWN called Miss Representation – about the media industry and its representation and treatment of women. Y’all need to set your DVRs for this one.

      And TLo – I honestly can only remember one WOW look – Viktor’s inkblot dress.  And I’m not really even sure that it is a wow – it is just something that stands out in my memory from a very bad and sad season.  

      Can’t wait for TLo’s posts today! Ready for some bitchy.

        Caught that in a screening at Princeton University – it raised a lot of interesting questions. Maybe a little bit “all over the place” and preachy, but can’t deny the message! What did you think?

        • Anonymous

          I’ve been teaching this in my Women’s Studies classes for years – using Jean Kilbourne and Jackson Katz (who were on the video).  So it wasn’t “preachy” for me, it was frustrating because things still haven’t changed; they have actually gotten much worse in the last 10 years.  But I’m really hopeful that it might generate some buzz and serve as a wakeup call for young women and men.

          Do you have a cousin named Seton Cram? Do you say things like “For the love of Pete, it’s the Witch and Dopey!” and “If he wants to dream for a while, he can dream for a while, and if he
          wants to come back and sell peanuts, oh, how I’ll believe in those
          peanuts!”

          If you have no idea what I’m talking about, feel free to ignore me. It’s just that “Holiday” is my favorite movie of all time and I often dream of Johnny Case.

      Anya crow dress or Bert’s little tunic dress.

    • Anonymous

      Where’s all this animosity towards Anya coming from?  Maybe I’m misremembering this season, but the only dress I can recall her being over praised for was the dude-tells-you-how-to-dress-his-girlfriend dress which was a cluttered mess.  Josh has been treated just as gently considering his art inspired mess of a Muppet dress was put in the top and he was spared from showing the world his green shirred monstrosity two weeks ago when they altered the rules so that they contestants could show an ‘editing eye’. 

      Oh, and favorite dress of the season?  Bert’s nut juice dress. 

    • Anonymous

      Man when those CRAZIES put Anya through as well I said out loud “Oh Lawd the commentariat is gonna go ape-shit!!!”
      While I have been saying all season  that this really does not seem all that terribly different than every other season as far as drama to output ratio, and thought everyone was a little crazy thinking the production was really taking over versus the normal editing…I take it back. The pregnant pause before announcing Anya through as well..and the scripted little three judge quipping about how anyone could still win…puh-leeeesh! I mean really. COME ON! That was just to much. TO MUCH. I still say Viktor is hands down the best of them by a MILE and SHOULD win and I think he still will, but it would not surprise me. I think I may be over PR. Maybe it has just had its run and the three amigos are as tired of it was we are?

      Who besides me felt Josh’s sister’s name was some kind of cruel joke by their parents? Mckenzie McKinley? How horrible is that? Wonder whether they called her MicMic at school.

      It’s amazing she can still smile.

        Did they give her full name on the show?  Because she might have been a half sister with a different last name.

          Yes. They showed it on a chyron. That’s how I know it’s Mckenzie and not Mackenzie.

      • Logo Girl

        She seemed pained to be there as well. I can imagine the producers saying “look, we’ll give you a free tour of New York, tickets to Book of Mormon – anything you like! We just need a family member in this episode. And McKenzie going “damn, OK just stop calling me already!”

      The look that wowed me the most?  I suppose I would go with Viktor’s dress for the HP challenge.  Aside from that one, I honestly can’t remember anything else that registered with me.

      I think I will audition for the show next season. Will tell them I haven’t sew for 30 years. That all I ever made were costumes. Lie. Tell them I have spent the last 30 years raising foster children. All of whom I sent to medical school. And show a rack of clothes that are all purchased from the Mary Kate and Ashley for JCPenney collection but that I’ve given jaunty uneven hems and embroidered the initials of my foster children. Would that be “Lifetime” enough?

        Not enough drama. You will need some debilitating disease, you are a porn star to help feed all those children, and make sure they are all from different countries.  You can speak at least 30 languages fluently and dream of world peace.

          Your plane crashed en route to a World Peace conference and timberwolves chewed off your major sewing hand. And then Bernie Madoff stole all your foster children’s Med School savings accounts. And you went deaf in one ear after going too deep in the earth to help get out the Chilean miners trapped underground. And you were arrested when you had a mad passion for one of your foster children and made a sex tape, but then the foster child got his or her birth certificate from Outer Mongolia showing he or she was really over 18 and just pretending to be younger to get close to you through the foster care system. Kind of a mess. But totally not your fault! But the prison stint did result in the loss of one eye when other prisoners didn’t appreciate your bogarting of the only sewing machine to make more attractive outfits for the guards out of bedsheets and the pages of books donated to the prison library. It’s been a hard life. But your rack of “Pinheads and Patriots”  dresses (there were boxes and boxes of that book that nobody wanted to read in the prison library) really impressed the judges at your audition. At least you think so. Heidi and Tim were on the side with no ear and no eye so it was hard to tell for sure.

        OK, here’s your audition story. Fill-in the blanks as you wish: Your family died (you chose the manner) when you were a baby and you were raised by wolves. At some point you spent two weeks in a foreign country ( you chose what country) which is why you have an unexplainable accent. Due to being raised by wolves, you have no social skills which is why you are mean spirited, selfish, rude, argumentative and just can’t stand to be around humans. You like wolves. Oh, you learned to sew two days ago but have only mastered button holes. You will not only ace your audition but you are guaranteed to go very far!

        You need a dead relative, and not just a disease, but something that involves shame or something really intimate. Cervical cancer might do, but it would be better if you were also a recovering heroin addict, with a lesbian sex tape. And get some tattoos. Visible ones. Consider covering your neck.

      I was sufficiently disengaged that I didn’t realize that the “final four” were given five weeks to make their Finale collections.  Has that been the customary amount of time for the finalists in PR seasons past?  Somehow I thought that the finalists had a few months.  With only five weeks, Anya’s creativity block highlighted during Tim’s home visit was an indulgence she could ill afford to nurture, but maybe she knew that she had a cushy producers’ safety net in reserve.

      If they have five weeks to produce, and Tim visits 3/5s of the way through, well, these people need to develop a lot of discipline and time management skills if they want to run businesses.  Yet again, drama not designing.

      Wow – upset, no?  I never agreed with the overpraise of Anya from the get go, but the judges were drunk on her kool aid, that’s for sure.  Of course I have either outright hated or been downright luke warm over the entirety of CC’s work.  But the judges certainly brought the drama last night!

      Oh wait, this is supposed to be a fashion show.  My bad.

      I just went to the auction site for the PR outfits–they auction off everything except the wives-and-lovers challenge, which I guess were taken home by the clients. I guess the final collections will not be on the block, though. The site lists Viktor, not Anya, as the winner for challenges 10 and 12 (no winner is listed for 11).

      http://projectrunway.auction.seenon.com/viewcat.php?category=254

      In challenges 10 and 12 Viktor’s outfits brought in the highest total bids. Anya was #2 twice and #3 in  11, the bird challenge. Kimberley was the leader in the bird challenge (which she won), 3 out of five in challenge 12, 5 out of seven in challenge 10. Josh had the lowest bids in 2 out of the three challenges, placing 4th of six in the bird challenge with his relatively wearable orange dress.

      Anthony did better than Kim, Laura, or Josh M. in challenge 10 where he was auf’d.   Laura was at or near the bottom every time. Bert got 3rd for the Piperlime challenge (10) and 4 out of five, above Laura, in the bird challenge where he was auf’d.

      This is a new low in PR history!!!!! I’ve weathered crazy finals (season 8 most recently, but . . .), crazy, meaningless challenges, crazy judging in individual challenges but this is the final challenge for me. And no, I haven’t seen any more than the rate the runway and a couple of the blogs (Peach, Nick) on Lifetime.
      I really don’t care at this point if the rules were bent for Anya, Josh, Kimberley, or Viktor–it is simply the unbelievable that the producers (I’m assuming) would repeat again and again only 3 for the final runway show and then make it all 4. It shows how little respect they have for the designers, their audience or sensibility. I really don’t care who wins at this point–Viktor deserves it but I’m sure he won’t get it.

      Internal narrative of a viewer: “This can’t be happening. Therefore it is not. There will be about 90 seconds more of suspense, then Heidi will say, ‘Anya, you will ALSO be going to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.’ … Wait, they wouldn’t trot out that tired trick again, would they? … Think about it … 3,2,1… oh, look!”
