Darlings, we’ll take Manhattan, but you all are heading off to Warsaw for a night of pierogies and vodka! We can’t make it due to a full dance card of New York Fashion Week events, but we’ve set up a tab for you guys, so pack your panties and get jetting.

 Velvet Bar at the Multikino Złote Tarasy Cinema
in Warsaw, Poland designed by Robert Majkut.

It’s like Prince’s rec room. You’ll have a blast, we’re sure.

“The eight remaining All Stars compete head to head in a sportswear challenge for one of the four seasons.” That sounds suspiciously like a “make a pretty sportswear look” challenge. We’ll see. And hey! Pass the bong, because Miss Cynthia Rowley is in the house. And by a quirk of fashion fate, we are heading right out of our hotel room the second we post this to go across town and attend the Cynthia Rowley runway show.

 

The internet connection in this hotel room is for shit, so we have no idea what you just watched. Here’s your comments section assignment: Interpret the preview in the most obscure terms possible so we’ll have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about since we’re in the strange position of posting a preview we can’t actually preview. Poetry, song, one-act play, haiku — go wild, kittens. We know you have it in you.

We’ll be back in our hotel room, snug in bed in time to watch the show with y’all and will be tweeting our poor overtweeted thumbs through the whole thing.

Oh, and for impatient kittens -is there any other kind? – the Revenge recap will be up tomorrow. If not, you can DESTROY us.

    • SO thrilled to have internet on PR night again! 

      Though it’s slow so I can’t interpret the preview for you, guys:)

    • I hope it means that after a senseless half-hour drama vortex, these two designers plagiarize themselves to a schmauf this week.

      Home not well does not compare to virtual Warsaw, velvet and vodka.  I’ll have a giant hot toddy and a blue velvet blankie to snuggle in a corner to watch the alleged mayhem Celebrity Death Match between Jerrell and Michael.  Are we supposed to care who wins???

        That is the business, as Jerell would say.

    • The thing about Kenley is, she has a very marketable aesthetic that I think a lot of girls would like to wear. Her clothes are cute and stylish and well-made with a lot of personality and she got be very successful. But really truly fashion-y clothes? Not a chance. It’s just not her gig. 

      She shouldn’t try with these kinds of venues; she should really just work on her brand instead.

           Did anyone else notice Mila using a glue gun to attach the black bands to her cape?  Maybe it was just to hold them in place while she stitched them down but I think that glue could have contributed to the stiff look.  I’ll bet Tim Gunn is glad he wasn’t a part of this.

            Ooh, I did not see that! Bad Mila, no biscuit! Hopefully it was just to hold them, but it would explain the stiffness- that makes perfect sense…

            And yeah, I think Tim would have been “Miss Piggy? Seriously?”

        It’s not exactly the judges’ fault: it was the set up. If one from each pair had to be in the top and one in the bottom, it screws everything up. The judges disliked both Kara’s & Austin’s (rightly so, in my opinion), yet Kara ended up safe. The judges liked both Michael’s and Jerrel’s very much, yet Michael ended up in the bottom.  That’s just ridiculous. What made of the writers or producers think that was a good set up is beyond me.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      Can’t really get behind Kenley’s high score.  A romper is another of those garments that just makes me go… huh?  It’s more or less in the same category as the muu-muus a couple of weeks ago.

      But, much as I like Rami’s work, that blouse was a nightmare.   If he’d made a simple tank to go under that great coat, he’d have made it through.  (Though, as an Austin fan, I’m glad he didn’t, I guess.  I suppose I’d have just rather seen someone else go, since I liked both of the bottom two.)  I liked the look when it walked with the coat closed, but you have to know they’re going to make you open the coat.

      I did think it was fairly clear that Michael was copying, though not necessarily consciously.  Jerrell got a well-deserved win on this one, imho (though I’ll wait for the stills before I stake a flag in that), so I won’t worry.  Michael didn’t make any serious mistakes on it, but from the tone of their judge comments, it sounds like they’re about to pull the plug on him.

        If he’d made a simple tank to go under that great coat, he’d have made it through.

      I actually love chartreuse–somehow it goes really well with my coloring.

      BUT:  Rami forgto that really really strong color contrasts like that are best in small doses (like a jacket that color, with black and the contrast in the shoes…)  I think what really costs him was the weird shape of the top.

      As to the others:  I liked Austin’s.  It’s a modernized “Betty Draper” look.  But I really didn’t have a problem with Kara’s beating it by a nose (and it’s the best thing Kara has done this season)

      Completely baffled by the comment that Mondo’s look was “junior” and Kenley’s (a romper!) wasn’t!  No one old enought to leagally drink could wear Kenley’s.

      •  I’m really worried about your coloring if chartreuse goes with it! 😉

           not really. Chartreuse works for a lot of people. I have a chartreuse dress that looks fab & I get loads of compliments when I wear it.

          •  But chartreuse has that awful quality of being over saturated like lime green but still with enough gray to make it look dim and toxic.

          I’m a strawberry blonde.  (blonde father, redheaded irish mother).  Chartreuse somehow makes my complexion look pink and rosy rather than ruddy and brings out the red highlights in my hair.  I know, it doesn’t make sense, but it works (and I know it’s a really hard color for most people)

            I’m very light olive skin, dark green eyes, and dark hair, but I tan well & in the summer I can rock the chartreuse.  It makes my eyes look greener.

            You lucky strawberry blonde you!  Such a beautiful color.  My dad’s whole side of the family is full of Irish redheads, and my little sister got his complexion- full on ginger gorgeous.  I’m not too jealous of her, ’cause I got my grandfather’s Native American cheekbones and black hair with natural red highlights, haha!

      Here’s my question:

      When the writers & producers were sitting around in script the meeting, and someone said, “let’s put the designers in pairs, and one from each pair will be in the bottom, and one in the top,” didn’t ANYONE point out the enormous flaw in that?  Didn’t anyone say, “But if we do that, a nothing outfit like the one Kara’s going to make might end up in the top, and the ‘best thing of the night’ (Austin’s pants — Isaac’s opinion, definitely not mine) might end up in the bottom, and an outfit everyone will love (Michael’s) might also end up in the bottom”?  Austin & Rami have both been floundering much of the time, so in a way I didn’t mind that they were in the bottom. But as much as I like Kara, her entry was ridiculous and auf-worthy.(Oh, and OF COURSE Cynthia Rowley loved Kenley’s – it looked just like a Cynthia Rowley design!)

        They just did this exact challenge about two weeks ago on Top Chef.  Now, the guy who went home kind of deserved it, but it was his partner’s fault, in a way: rather than have a dish assigned to them to go head to head on, they had to agree on a dish to both do, and she picked.  He didn’t want to do it, but he gave in – and his was just slightly worse than hers.

      I never thought Rami would go home before Michael, Jerrell, Kara, or Kenley. 

       

      • This x 100. I’m glad to see that the majority of the first batch of comments I read echoed my thoughts last night. I would have inverted 2 of the ‘winners/losers’ in their set (Mondo, Rami). I thought Mila’s cape looked awkward also-to  the person who mentioned that. Kara was only safe because Austin’s was so (worse than) matronly. I hated this episode-a lot, and last night, because I watched alone, I thought I had lost my mind with how strongly I disagreed with many of the judges’ comments/decisions.  And if they hadn’t kept Jerrell through about 5 crimes to fashion earlier this season, when he shouldn’t have stayed-things might have shaken out differently. I’m becoming more and more convinced that at the beginning of each season, whether each designer knows it or not, they are ‘cast’ to be eliminated after X number of episodes… “Oh, Rami has a contract through epsiode 9 (or whatever)”, etc. Simultaneously watching seasons 2 and 3 with this one-and noticing really weird eliminations at crazy times. Maybe the clothing just looks different in person than it does on my TV-that might explain the crazy ‘aufs’ out of logical sequence.

      I hate this faceoff challenge.

      •  I agree- he was weeping because no one appreciated the outfit that he’d intended as a tribute to his mother’s 60th birthday. I’ve loved Mondo in the past, but I just thought “Boo-Hoo, let’s have a pity party.”

        Don’t see it. Guy lost to Gretchen and nicely agreed to come back for … more shitty abuse from the judges.

        • I really think Mondo is more bitter about losing to Gretchen than he cares to let on. I’m not saying that’s good or bad, but he knows what was up. I hope he also knows that there are lots of people who want him to succeed.

      • I don’t see it quite that way. They ALL are there to win and rarely do they expect to lose. Mondo lacked self-control, to break down like that in a situation where it’s so likely that he’ll end up broadcast. But his feelings throughout the episode were complicated–his mother’s big 6-0, the remark that dinner with Jerell & Michael reminded him of dinner at home in a bad way, his dithering about the design, his excuse that he is not comfortable with sportswear. I imagine he looked at what Kenley did and thought he would at least win over her. But I think that, though he was upset because “they hated it,” the breakdown had to do with a load of issues. And it’s possible that a moment before Michael had said, “just cry it out….” in a friendly way…. The edit had a narrative, but it’s probably not the only possible narrative.

    • I think Rami was relieved to be released, I’m not sure he gave two flips about much of anything after the first few challenges.  I’m going to stop watching and read the recaps.  I have better things to do than watch BM drive the all-stars show into the gutter.

      Ugh, Kenley should have gone home for that ugly ass juvenile looking romper. I’m glad Jerrell won-thanks for finally showing why you deserve to be on the show. Cynthia Rowley was just vile, and poor poor Mondo. I thought his outfit was adorable and wearable. An Austin oh Austin oh honey no, and Rami why did you undercut yourself with that ugly ass lime green top.

      • Lisa

        I think the big problems here were that, if this hadn’t been a 50/50 head to head challenge, Mondo and Rami might have middle-packed it. I think they were actually loving Rami’s outfit till they had his girl undo the coat and then saw the Franken-top.  I honestly think that’s what did him in.

        I actually didn’t like one outfit over the others in *any* of the pairs.  I loved Jerrell’s and Michael’s both (Michael’s a little better), hated both Austin’s and Kara’s, didn’t really like Kenley’s or Mondo’s (but they were way to harsh on poor Mondo, that was uncalled for), and I loved both Rami’s and Mila’s (except for Rami’s Franken-top).  Because it had to be head to head, I think it made the judging tougher – the judges put themselves in a position of having to go after looks that weren’t that bad, and giving high scores to stuff that wasn’t that good.

        I have to admit, Kenley kind of cracked me up when they were all trying to console Mondo.  “Don’t be upset – they said they wouldn’t even want to have lunch with Austin’s girl!”  Hah!  I did laugh.  Especially at my poor Austin’s face when she said that, like, “Gee, thanks.”

         Rami’s top was poorly constructed; it had visible stitches. Who’d he think he is, Anya?

    • WTF just happened? Granted, Rami’s top was horrid, but he should have made top 3 easy — he’s consistently shown good work up until tonight. To have him leave before Jerrell — who hasn’t shown one decent garment all season (at least IMO) — or Kenly — who looks like she is designing for the Kindergarten set — just adds insult to injury. SMH.

    • I was delayed in looking at the show and OMG. What!!!! Rami’s gone.

    • Anonymous

      for me it was hard to argue with the Schmauf. That drape job by Rami was pretty bad as was the chartruese color he chose. I did not like his at all, although the back was slightly better than the front. The construction just was not very good. I was not impressed with Mondo’s either but I really felt Kenley’s was pretty blah and the dots really stood out as not matching. Jarrel’s was very good. His and Mila’s were the best of the bunch IMO.

    • Anonymous

      It has come up on more than one show, I think that one judge got after Rami for not matching Polka-dots, and tonight cynthia Rowley got after Kenley for not matching polka dots. It is not possible to match polka dots on shaped seams.

      • Lisa

        And the judges always come down on them about not lining up polka dots when, a) it’s nearly impossible, and b) with the time constraints of the challenges, it’s just not going to happen.  The judges really need to drop it with that particular criticism.

        • Anonymous

           Or the designers really need to stop using large polka dots or other patterns that need to be lined up.

    • “I don’t want there to be any tension…”

      Yeah, right.  Jon Murray wants there to be LOTS of tension, and Michael wants the camera time.

    • Austin’s look (yes, even those hideous, high waisted K-Mart special pants) belonged on a septuagenarian on her way to BINGO. It was far, far worse than Rami’s. I hated Austin’s look with utter abandon. WHO wears high waisted, pleated beige pants? Fashion forward my Aunt Gladys! Ugh, becoming incoherent with aggravation!

      • You shouldn’t’ insult septagenarians like that.

    • Anonymous

      I have had Jerell pegged to go home tonite, but I loved his coat. Totally agreed with his win.  I would buy his coat in a heartbeat.

      I wish fervently never to see Michael on my TV screen again.

      WTF was up with the Kenley love?  Granted, she’s way less obno than during her season, and she’s lost weight or something and looks good, but honey–that polka dotted shorts thing was the romper version of the Peter Pan collared dress she made last week.  And really?  One of you ladies would’ve shown up in the Hamptons in that?  I think not.  Let’s get wild and do a v-neck sometime, Kenley!  Oooooh!

    • Anonymous

      So it’s pretty clear that Isaac Mizrahi is the BMOC of this group. He hates Rami’s top and loves Austin’s hideous pants, and therefore Austin goes home.

      It was a good first half of the season, but we’re back to the judges smoking crack and the contestants being black holes of drama, sucking all the light out of the room.

      If they do it again next week, I’m done. My fuse was clipped short by last season. Two strikes and they’re out.

      and that hiddy length on austin’s pants. 

      (And OF COURSE – to C Rowley liking the length of the sleeves on Jerrells (3/4 HATE!!!).

      Actually Mondoo and Knely’s shapes are more similar than Jerroell and Michaels

      WHY – do they judge Rami’s top under his jacket (gorgeous) and not ANY of these others:
      Kara, Austin, Michael Jerrell none of theirs were even looked at!

      • Anonymous

        The sweater under Jerrell’s coat did not look that good and did not match the bohemian feel of the coat. That coat drama was such BS. OHHHH a winter look and you both used dark tweedy fabrics and made a coat. Granted a winter coat in that fabric was the not most original choice but they looked nothing alike except in the color story! Rami’s jacket was one of the best items on the runway.

      Lots of crack in the judging tonight. Hated Kenley’s Minnie Mouse roper. And couldn’t stand Mila’s poncho, dorky. Kara’s was boring as hell, Austin’s was a golden girl’s reject.  Mondo’s was cute and I totally want Rami’s blue jacket.

      I couldn’t believe how much they hated Mondo’s outfit, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH IT!  It was cute!

      cynthia rowley cannot design her way out of a soppingly sodden paper bag. strangely i may still have a bunch of her stuff here, from when she was just starting out, from when wasteland [this one on melrose] was glutted w/ it. i used to wear it to work. it was uninteresting enough to use for that purpose. why on earth was she a judge on this show, making pronouncements about people who might not have had her funding but also not her design talent–cos each, in his or her own way, has so much more?

    • Anonymous

      Geez. The judging seemed particularly harsh – and mostly uncalled for – this evening. It makes me hate the judges, in a big way. Maybe because there’s SO much negativity in the world just now, the ugliness on the show took me by surprise. 

      • Anonymous

        It was the guest judge, she was like a black cloud, casting a pall over what up until now had been fairly constructive criticism. It seemed like she took pleasure in ripping on people. I agree, who needs it?

    • We just could not believe that they called Mondo’s outfit juvenile while it was standing there next to an outfit that couldn’t possibly be worn by anyone over age 5.  A six year old would look stupid in it.

      And those pants of Austin’s are only good for Ed Grimley. He should have gotten the boot. Even if they weren’t matched head to head, that was the worst thing out there.

      • Ed Grimley! I knew I’d seen them somewhere before.

      • Anonymous

        Thank you, thank you for the Ed Grimley reference…he’s the only creature who could wear those sadly hiddy pants.

    • My opinions:
      Spring
      Kara: My favorite of the night actually.. though it might just be because of the contrast to the fugliness that was:

      AUSTIN’S!!!??? … Who did he think he was designing for? His grandmother?? The first thing my bf and I said was “OLD”

      Summer
      Kenley: I am renaming Kenley. Her new name is Repetitive. She reminds me a lot of Uli. The same outfit in a different print.

      Mondo: I really liked this one, and felt that the judges were WAY TOO harsh on him. especially Cynthia Rowley.

      Fall
      Mila: I am going to reiterate how I have felt about her all season long “yawn” … though this was.. a stretch for Mila

      Rami: I have never liked Rami… and I didn’t like ANYTHING about this outfit. I still think it looked better than Austin’s though. I thought the silhouette made her look like a Christmas Light Bulb… but I think Christmas Light Bulb is more interesting than the Librarian look.

      Winter
      Jerrell: What? winner? really? Possibly the best thing that Jerrell has put out all season, but that isn’t saying much, since Jerrell put’s out shit.

      Michael: I liked it. I am a little upset with what happened between Jerrell and He… But I think it was much more due to similarities in fabric than construction. I can understand Jerrells concerns… and I disliked Michael’s response… but I don’t think that Jerrell had a viable concern.

        I have to agree with you re: Rami’s outfit vs. Austin’s.  When Austin’s look first walked out, I was 99% sure he’d finally hit the wall.  Luv him, but WTF?  The top half was Little Old Lady 101, and I totally do NOT get the love for those pants.  Good god. 

        Rami had some errors in the blouse but it was nowhere near the horror that was Austin’s quasi twinset.  

      • Anonymous

         It’s a Winter look. What did Jerrel think he should be doing, a bikini?

        Wait, don’t answer that–it’s Jerrel. We’re lucky he didn’t send out a topless model for Winter.

    • I think Kenley’s outfit looked far more juvenile than Mondo’s – it looks like it would actually come in children’s sizes…

        Agreed, but only for girls up to 4-years old.  I said that out loud, and my 11-year old daughter agreed with me that she would never be caught dead in something like that.

      Yikes so the spoiler over at Gawker is coming true, especially after accurately predicting Rami’s elimination. I’m not liking the sound of this season anymore. I feel sorry for all the designers who entered this competition thinking it was legit.

    • Anonymous

      Austin’s pants were some really fugly shade of beige. I really liked the sweater though.

      I really liked Mondo’s look. I get that it won’t be to everyone’s taste, there’s nothing confusing about what he was going for unless you’ve been living under a rock. Which I guess was the case with the judges ’cause the outfit made their head explode.

      Meanwhile while I liked the cut of Kenley’s outfit, I can’t think of anyone over the age of 3 wearing that print on purpose!

      Is it just me or was Cynthia Rowley just lacking a clue in general? I thought she was a terrible judge.

      • Anonymous

        I thought she was buzzed. She seemed a little out of it, tho’ this is the first time I have seen her so maybe she’s is like that all the time.

        • She loves judging reality shows, and I absolutely love her. She always seems at least a little buzzed, but I’ve never seen her like that. She was just ridiculous.

    • Not about the preview, but about the runway.

      Spring is a young girl, crying for mommy.
      Summer’s a serene mother, bleached of distinction.
      Autumn’s bright colors form walking pyramids.
      Winter’s a tweed square, with or without set-in-sleeves.

      Is it just me or does every single one of  Kenley’s outfits look the same? Polka Dots-check! Girly colored fabric-check! Big bow under my model’s chin-Double check!!

      There was something about Mila’s cape that didn’t look right.  The arm openings were either too small, or in the wrong spot, or something.  It seemed to bunch up a little around the openings and the model seemed to keep her arms in just one position.

      • Anonymous

         I agree, all anyone could do in that cape is walk with the exact posture that model is using.  I find capes impractical in general, though.  As someone else mentioned, you can’t carry a shoulder bag (and look at the huge bag this model is styled with, she has to wrap the chain handle around her wrist several times so it doesn’t drag on the floor) and if you have to drive it is all kinds of awkward.  Capes only work for royalty, vampires, and hobbits.
