Darlings, you’ll be happy to know that comfy seating and flattering lighting is back on the menu.

Vanity Night Club in Las Vegas

Let’s all order something colorful that comes in a martini glass, darlings. Then, let’s all have sex with a stranger. Not the same one, of course. That would be icky.

Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman and Angela Lindvall, with guest judge Sean Avery in the fifth challenge of Project Runway.

 

“The All Stars take to the streets of New York to convince total strangers to part with their clothes in the name of fashion. Their muse’s outfits are ripped apart and reborn in the hands of an All Star.”

 Well…it’s the 10th season. “Gimmicky” was to be expected.

 

Break us off a piece of that! New York is a magical city, darlings.

Whose turn is it to go home this time, darlings? Kara, Rami, and Jerell have all been struggling, so they best step up their game this week.

As for us, we are incredibly busy little fashion bees, since we’re a week out from New York Fashion Week and our dance card is FULL. Our wardrobes are beefed up, we haven’t had carbs since Christmas, and our cats are getting annoyed because they can tell something’s up. It is GAME ON, bitches. And we shouldn’t say this, but we kind of hope the temperature drops a bit because we have all these pretty new cold weather items to wear and we would be sad little fashion bees if they all stayed in our suitcases, unloved and un-needed.

      Has the TLounge ever been the Continental in Philly? I realise it  may not be that exotic for you guys but I love it and they do a great pomegranate martini.

      • MilaXX

         There are loads of Philly lounges that would be great. I agree the Continental is a good one. Come on guys, some hometown love please.

          Chiming in on the Continental suggestion. It’s one of my favorite neighborhood haunts and is always a great time especially with a group of pals. Bitter Kittens would love it.

      I’ll have a pom-tini to match the jewel tones in the bar.   I’ll be sitting at one of those banquettes, my face matching the fabric because I will be green with envy that you’re going to Fashion Week without me.

      Yay! I’m here for TLounge.  Was gone the past couple of weeks…at least last week, I can’t remember anything before that. Will be breaking out the vino.

      Well, kittens, I am gonna curl right up on the banquette, and order up a Manhattan in honor of this week’s challenge: One never knows what one might encounter on a Manhattan street, and it certainly appears Miz Scarlett found her something dee-lish and wasted no time in – ahem – defrocking said cutie. This IS a challenge from cray-cray land. Can’t wait to see what the end results are. And it just hit me that SEAN AVERY is guest judging? Well, life IS interesting as we jump the shark, isn’t it?

      Keep those Manhattans flowing, gang – I have a feeling it’s gonna be a bumpy ride tonight. (I predict Kara will have a melt-down of EPIC proportions, and Jerrell may be going bye-bye.)

      well, it’s a balmy afternoon here on the west coast, but it’s never too early for a virtual martini.  my dad made the best gin martinis in the world!  i’m sure he’s drinking them on the golf course in paradise right now.  he made them with an onion, an olive, and a twist, or two of each even better.  his secret ingredient which he never told anyone was a splash of dry sherry along with the vermouth.

      Too warm here in greater NYC to wear wool, to my way of thinking, so I’m with you Boys on wanting the temps to reflect the season.  For a change.

      Gimmicks galore.  Ah well, too much to hope otherwise.  I wonder (not having watched the clip) whether the civilian who sacrifices his/her garment for the sake of Reality Fashion gets some compensation, and a robe or some such.

      Clothes from the sidewalk rag-bag?  I think this will be curtains for Jerrell. 

      • Anonymous

        Yeah I am fairly sure they would give the people some more clothing to wear. Although I would hope that the guy in the video would just go walking all over the place just the way he is and by all over the place meaning walking cross-country to my bedroom. T & Lo, there better more then one screenshot. :P

    • MilaXX

      I kinda like this variation of the clothes off our backs challenge. I’m staying in tonight and shall have a glass of wine, but I could always stick a paper umbrella in it to match the decor. If she sends down another dud, I think Kara may bid us all farewell, although Rami hasn’t exactly be setting the runway on fire either.

      As for wishing for colder temps, I don’t mind as long as there’s not snow involved.

      It’s creepily warm here in Utah, Land of Bad Fashion and Lots of Children.  It needs to be snowing but it refuses.  So if it’s going to act like summer, then I want a tequila shot and a cold beer.

        It’s been very warm here in Wisconsin as well.  Weird.  I don’t like it–bodes for a very dry spring which is not good for the trees.

      Oh look at those cushy couches.  I may just lay down and have a big colorful martini brought to me with a long straw…is tht OK?  I’ve been re-entering data in our new accounting program all day–my eyes are spinning. 
      ITA about the cold weather–I want snow…still!  And I am absolutley green about Fashion Week, but I wish you all the best and will be watching your tweets.  I think Rami is out this week–he has not found his soul in this competition so far–he seems so lost….

      Damn it! I was just at the Hard Rock, stayed in the Suite Tower, which is right where Vanity is located but avoided it because it had a crazy line and this NYer never has and never will do lines for clubs. But it looks cool. I’ll have to go early next year, before the crowds. 

      So looking forward to tonight. The highlight of my day. Yes, my life is that exciting.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Sounds like an interesting challenge… for extraverts.  As an introvert, this one would terrify me way more than time limits.

      Looks like Michael C is in the judging round again.  What the hell, judges?

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

        I am naturally an introvert, and you know what works great?  Try the Chloe Sevigny school of public relations: create little character for yourself to play in public by choosing your look.  Seriously, it sounds weird, but doing the full Stepford when I must socialize with other moms for the kids’ school makes it so much easier for me to talk to them.  (Though hearing about hiring a driver for A FRICKING 8-YEAR-OLD does knock that right out)  Edgy urban for in a bar does the same.  I create this whole different personality for each look and I use that whenever I have to talk to strangers.

      I’m watching Kenley and Jerrell on a season five marathon on Style. My guess is that either Jerrell or Kara are on their way out. Neither have been putting out anything all that spectacular. Someone ordered a gin martini which sounds divine. I’ll have one of those.

      • Call me Bee

        I’ve been watching The Soup for the last half hour.  I’m dyin’! 

      • Call me Bee

        So I turned on PRS5 in time to see the runway–neither Jerrell nor Kenley have changed much (i.e. grown…) in their designs since 2008.  I thought Rami would go tnight–it may be Jerrell–he’ll get someone’s cool clothes and throw all sorts of sh*t all over it. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ZBFH32YG44LIIZYLSQPMBXMYCU Sarah

      Yay! I will have a SoCo with ginger, please. Not sophisticated, but my fave, so there you are. (And better than the Bud Light that I think is in the fridge…). I will also have those banquettes in lieu of the sectional I’m shopping for for my new house.

      And I think maybe it’s Kara’s time. I was peeved that she made it past April, but I guess construction issues were on her side. It is now time to stop playin’ and get rid of the chaff. (Sorry, Kara, nothin’ personal).

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LGAKNANTSBR3YYEWLZDNT35IIY Whatever

      Pretending while I’m wearsing ing my nursing(for baby) pajamas, I’m going for a peach mojito. Make room for me near the corner, so I can get a view all around.

      I’m guessing Jerrell or Kara for the off, since they consistently haven’t given many third chances. From Michael’s expression, top three again. Rami and Mondo, step up babies. You were my fav #2′s of the season. Yes, you guys were the shiznit, now smell it up!!!!!

    • Anonymous

      I’m hoping the last two weeks were just “off” and we see some fabulousness tonight.  I think it’s Kara’s turn to leave.  Rami looks too good in his tank top to let go this early.  I’ll have a Manhattan.

      Stay classy, Michael Costello, with the endless manipulative bullshit open-mouthed dry crying after your non-elimination.  Jesus.  On the runway, and backstage?  Really?  I wish he’d just give it up and be more the guy we see in the preview, talking about ass-wiping with a competitor’s garment, rather than faking the soundless sob of a toddler.

      I liked the vast majority of the garments tonight — I thought Rami’s was dreadful and overworked, both in terms of the items he created and the overall look, so I would’ve put someone else, maybe Kenley, in his top-3 spot. 

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

        I liked Rami’s, but Kenley’s dress was pretty damn great. And she didn’t make a poofy skirt! While she was in the workroom, I was expecting the same thing she usually makes, and wondered if she even knows how to make a pencil skirt. Then she sends one onto the runway. Good for her.

      1. Jerrell turned his model into Lady Gaga (thanks for stealing my line, Avery…your glasses are not cute)
      2. Kenley’s dress reminded me of Mondo, from his season.  Apparently she still is very, um, “referential” in her work
      3. The production value on this was really low brow tonight…I felt like they were going to bust out the star wipe at any time

        I just posted the same thing (several hours after you, sorry!). Yes! Kenley’s dress! Cheap Mondo rip-off. What makes it even more disturbing (as though her tendency to be “referential” was never troubling enough) is that she’s never done anything remotely like it before.

          Amen and hallelujah….I just feel she’s gauche like that.  I’m not speaking about the pattern so much as she’s like the A-Line/Flare skirt queen and I don’t remember her really using silhouettes like that in the past.  Not to say she can’t grow, but it’s so removed from her aesthetic that it’s totally suspect.

      I’ll miss Miss Sophia (or what was it Austin called him?), but I kind of get it, at least.  Though I’d have given him “spirit of the challenge” points for all the clothes he managed to cadge alone.  Even if the garment didn’t show them, that was not easy to do.

      As much as I love Mondo as a fun person on my TV screen, I’ve always felt his clothes were too far out there to wear… but I’d wear the hell out of that jacket.  In fact, I need a lightweight jacket for spring…  I’d have been good with either him or Austin winning.  Those were both awesome takes.  The ladies did well, too.

      Rami’s… I feel like we’ve seen it a hundred times in “menswear inspired” looks.  We probably haven’t, but I feel that way, like I’ve seen it so often that I’m bored with it.

      Jerrell.  Oh, Jerrell.  That was hideous.  Much as dislike the remaining contestant who has had enough publicity without me mentioning him (and two weeks ago, I thought I might get past that dislike), I thought Jerrell’s piece was so self-evidently horrible that he should not have been safe at all.  And I like Jerrell.

      from lifetime‘s stills i wish anthony hadnt added a blanket of bewilderment down the side of his pants; sans blanket, i think, & he would still be w/ us.

      i, unfortunately & like so many of us here, wouldve also tossed jerrel. an expanse of skin which turns a model into not the beluga but the beach upon which that beluga has flung itself is not attractive. all she needed was sand. & i dont precisely mean that it made her look large, just like a long, cumbersome length of skin colored road. one beside the pacific ocean. i hope i make sense. odd, too, cos i like some of the elements of his outfit. but the proportions are so so off that anything nice, if i may semi-continue the metaphor, is drowned beneath this poverty of expansiveness.

      for the rest i will wait til i watch the thing tomorrow. i also did like mondo’s jacket & can also think of many ways to wear it–& i scarcely wear denim at all. so theres that.

      otoh, if you cut out all food, not just carbs [or at least almost all of it] you are most likely to find yrself so cold that even if it’s summer in nyc, which it isnt, you can wear a jacket. i know, i’m very good at this rather stupid but ingrained occupation. [maybe not as good as demi moore, but better than i should be w/ my education & deeply thought out beliefs.] as is, i havent eaten much since the beginning of the year–i’m in LA, it was about 80ᴼ, i didnt know & i found myself running two heaters. starvation is always a good excuse in fashion; in fact, & as i am sure you know, the word excuse cant really be used in this case any more than can lifestyle. it’s just the way people live.

      as an aside, i learned how to do this decades ago as a ten or eleven year old from bette midler’s affection for the liquid protein diet. i guarantee there are more people on here than myself who remember it. i assume it’s been taken off the market by now, i assume it caused some kind of physical damage. but, oh, we were so innocent then.

        Oh, honey, this worries me… I have food issues (and projection… fair warning:) and there is so much that sounds all to familiar to me here.  And I know of what I speak, in high school I actively TRIED to develop an eating disorder. 

        If you ever want some support or advice because you have a problem (again, could well be projection on my part) let me know.

           Shannon, I know this was a while ago, but I missed this comment when it was first posted. I just wanted to say that, honestly, I’m really happy to know that I’m not the only one who actively tried to give herself a disorder in high school. (And who still has food issues because of it.)

      Mondo deserve the win.nothing spectacular but better then the rest. Austin designs aways look like they belong on a Barbie doll. Rami”s was well made but safe.

      Honestly, I thought that Micheal’s was the best garment to walk down the runway tonight. It looked great, but I could understand how it wasn’t “street-wear.” I don’t think Michael should have been in the Top or Bottom 3.

      I am glad that Mondo won though. My second favorite garment, though Mondo’s fit the challenge more so than Micheal’s so I felt he deserved to win.

      Kenley should have been in the bottom 3 (not Michael). That thing nearly blinded me because it clashed so much.

      Also, I love Kara. Have loved Kara forever. I would hate to see her go, but hasn’t she broken the rules, like A LOT? I foresee her being disqualified from the competition, which would make me very sad. Allowing Kenley to finish her garment, and going over budget at mood? Those are some pretty serious violations.

      Anthony made a good outfit, but then he didn’t complete the task at hand.

      Mila – “yawn”

      Austin – Great job.. Third favorite, glad you were number two :)

      Rami has never impressed me much, and today was no different,

      But mostly – Jerells was OBVIOUSLY the worst! That was hideous, I am pretty sure I
      have seen more attractive vomit than that piece of .. I don’t know what to call it … (I
      feel like calling it shit would be an insult to shit)

      Kenley’s looked nothing like anything I’ve ever seen her do before. It looked like a cheap Mondo ripoff.

        What bothered me was that it looked to me as if only the yoke was from the muse’s blouse. The muse’s garment wasn’t enough to provide all those stripes, was it? If that was the case, she should have been disqualified like Anthony.

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

          You don’t know what else she got that wasn’t shown on camera — that was her muse, but she could have (and quite possibly did, most of them seemed to) gotten pieces from others as well.

        I know that people are anxious to brand Kenley a copy cat. But she has used that style of dress before, which has more to do with the 1940′s (her vintage inspiration) than the 1960′s which Mondo (and Mila) tends to favor. She has also used patterned fabric in every single challenge so far. Kenley Austin, Jerrell, Mila, and Mondo used stripes in this challenge. In addition Kara and Rami mixed patterns.

        • Bree The Vole

          Agreed. I love Mondo too but he didn’t invent prints or colors.

      Overall, I thought the challenge was good–it made for good TV bits, and it was not “make a pretty dress.” However, I notice that Anthony was not on the list you propose of those who are riding for a fall. I wonder if they are keeping Jerrell  on because his sensibility and style are so different (not just from the others but from Mizrahi or Marchesa)–the designers maybe feel they can learn something from him? Or hesitate to criticize precisely because he is so far out of their own concept of what to do with yardage?

      I met Sean Avery while interning in the NHL, and even though he’s a nice person I just knew he’d be boring as paint judging.

      As a sidenote: I see the Continental has been mentioned, but this Philly girl has another suggestion for the T LOunge – the Franklin Mortgage and Trust on 18th between Walnut & Chestnut! It’s such an amazing place with the best (and probably most expensive)  drinks in Philly.

      I know it’s nuts, but I loved Kenley’s dress.  I don’t know why.  I think when I saw it last night coming down the runway, I remember being impressed with how much everything on it clashed but in my eyes, in a good way.  And from what I recall, the fit was amazing.

      Also… I missed you guys while watching last night!  My laptop was AWOL for the whole week and all I could think was, “I wonder what the LOunge thinks?!?”
