TLOunge

Posted on January 10, 2013

Oooh La La, kittens! We’re jetting off to Paris tonight to all sit in uncomfortable chairs and bask in very unflattering underlighting!

 

Le Bar Laduree, Paris

We think we may have featured this bar more than any other single bar for T LOunge. One of these days, we’re going to have to make a point to actually go there and raise a glass to our minions.

Guest judge Cynthia Rowley, Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman, and Carolyn Murphy.

Cynthia Rowley remains the one designer among all others that T Lo wants to smoke a joint with. She just seems like she’d be fun, y’know?

Joanna Coles and The House of Valentino present the remaining designers their eleventh challenge.

And of course, we’re jetting off to Paris because they’re jetting off to Paris. Here’s hoping we don’t run into them. Because believe us, speaking from experience, you do NOT want to run into some of these Project Runway folks after you’ve said bitchy things about them on the internet.

Why do people sign up for reality television shows and then act put out when someone says something bitchy about them on the internet? Are they really THAT naive? A question for the ages.

Jealous. Wish we were there.

Not with them, of course. Just in Paris.

 

 

Yadda yadda yadda. Who’s getting cut from the Final 4, darlings? Make your pick now.

              Hey Kiltd, very random question.
              I know that you live in SF and wear kilts. Any recommendations for where to get a kilt or any Kilt 101 tips for a young, urban kind of guy who likes to call himself hip? (That’s me, if you didn’t get the hint.) I’ve seen young guys pull off cool kilted looks and I’m interested in trying it…

              I live in the area, so if there’s any kind of kilt emporium in the Bay…

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              There are two SF kilt resources. The first is
              Wm. H Glenn and Sons on Sutter St, downtown, near Stockton. The other is the only store selling Utilikilts outside of Seattle. They are way way out on Mission St. About the 5300 block.
              There are also lots of urban kilt makers on the web now.
              Happy to help anyone get kilted up!

              Thank you!
              One more thing: Kilt over skinny pants, cool or awkward?

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              It could be great. It’s just something that should be approached with care. We’ve all seen unfortunate pairings of skirts and pants. It seems to be all about proportion and volume.

            • Scott Isaacs

              OMG. 1000 extra points for Kiltdntiltd for using the word “sporran.” Love.

        • Stubenville

          Doing fine. Overdue for a trip to the City of Light.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            We’ll go back together, then!

            • Call me Bee

              So sorry I am late!  Was with The Hubs picking up my Christmas present–a diamond right-hand ring!  It’s beautiful and all my BFFs will be envious so the champagne is on me! 
              I have never been to Paris, but will get there later this year when we make our pilgirmage to The Country of our Ancestors.  Can’t wait! 

            • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

              OMG! Bijou diamanté! You really are a lucky lady. Any idea where you’ll stay while there?

            • Call me Bee

              Oh I have no idea.  Suggestions?  I’m sure we’ll only be in Paris a couple of days–we’ll be spending much time in Estonia & other places in Scandinavia.  Hubs want to go back to Stockholm for sure…

        • http://www.theseabirdmonastery.co.uk/ Ailsa

          I am suuuper late to the party, but I had a weekend in Paris a couple of months ago and went to this bar! Unfortch the cocktails start at 17 euros and just go up and up. Even the Coke was like 8 euros. However! Pro tip: you can order takeaway boxes of macarons while you’re at the bar and avoid the queues and crush of the shop itself. And they are deeeeeelish.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/XPWSQ2BDU5XJIA23AMYVBRWZBA Eric

      Don’t go to Paris just for that bar – they’ve probably remodeled it three times since it was photographed.

        LK?  lady klinique?  i’m lost here.  i must need a drink.

        • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

          Laura Kathleen. For a woman who USA self professed lover of pretty, and a designer, to boot, she sure doesn’t do all that well dressing her own shape. She often chooses things that make her look shorter and wider than she is.
          This jumpsuit with the bozo pant legs isn’t helping her a bit.

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

            Whither LK, Kiltd? She got the axe a while back. Might you be referring to our lovely, Germanic Uli and her billowy ensemble?

              ‘Tis nothing. What is something, though, is the deployment of cigarette pants on our boy Clinique there. So classy for Paris, no?

              HA! Precisely. No worries, Kiltd!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Ah the City of Light-I may have to end my boycott of PR to watch this.  I suspect Josh or Emilo will receive the au revoir tonight.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        I’m still betting on Joshy Poo to be going home tonight.

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

          Possible that Emilio could go. I am blinded by my distaste for 95% of Josh’s stuff, but I do seem to recall a heinously constructed yellow number with Emilio’s name on it from last week…

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            He’s been off his game a good deal this season.

    • alyce1213

      It’s got to be Josh, right?  

      The lovely and/or beautiful Georgina Chapman has a fuzzy midriff.

      • 3boysful

         It SO annoys me how CM always intros her as “the beautiful Georgina Chapman.”  Is she not also talented?  (OK, I know there’s some debate there.)  Award-winning?  Commercially successful?  There’s got to be another adjective she can mix in there without sounding like GC’s only there for set decoration.

        And her fuzzy midriff bugs.

        • 3boysful

           Oh, and a big-ass glass of a smooth red.  Long day.

          • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

            Sorry to hear it was a tough one.

        • swissgirl

          How about, “The beautiful and talented Georgina Chapman who sleeps with fat gross pig billionaire Harvey Weinstein.”

          • alyce1213

            Ya think she does?  I’m not so sure.

            • swissgirl

              Well, she’s married to him and they have a baby daughter.

          • WhiteOprah

            Well, from all of the buzzing on the internet (Because everything on the internet is true), Harvey Weinstein has quite the rep for using his power and influence to bed many young starlets.  If I were Georgina, I don’t think I’d be all that disappointed to have someone else taking care of that department (Shudder).  

        • Spicytomato1

          Actually tonight she was called “exquisite.” I almost fell off my chair at the change in adjectives.

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        That is a bizarre look-it’s as if she’s in molt.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Which sort of begs for Fuzzy Navel jokes.  What an odd midriff for her dress though.

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

          Ah! Fuzzy Navels all around!

          • CozyCat

            Oh, Fuzzy Navels (the drink, anyway) aren’t nearly strong enough to get us thru how P*ssed off we’re going to be in about 20 minutes….

    • libraangel

      I hate what the BEAUTIFUL Georgina is wearing, and I hate EVEN more what the DESIGNER (?) Cynthia is wearing. (How do these people become world famous designers?!)
      p.s. Uli is looking better every week.

    • http://www.facebook.com/suzie.vazquez Suzie Vazquez

      josh please

      • Joyce VG

         agreed.

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

      It REALLY should be Josh. I know he actually made something good last week, but that was a fluke born out of SOMEONE ELSE giving him advice on what she wanted. Because HE doesn’t know how to dress a woman, I’m pretty sure. And I want Uli to win so bad, bless her cheerful German soul.

      • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

        If it makes you feel better, it probably will be Josh.  Didn’t Jay Nicholas win the last challenge and then get cut from the final 3?  Same thing with Jerell, yes?  So my guess is it will be Josh, but I’m hoping AR gets the cut because I just can’t stand his clothes and would prefer to watch the tacky train wreck Josh would put on than the sort of ill-fitted boring AR makes.

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

      She was “the lovely” two or three weeks ago. I know, not any better.

      • Lisa_Cop

        That’s because Gretchen Moll was “the beautiful”.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      lovely bar!  i am deep in reading the game of thrones series, and somehow this decor seems appropo. some warm honey mead and a slice of sucking pig, sil vous plait.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Linda-Harris/1358701372 Linda Harris

      I would be very happy is Josh got cut

    • another_laura

      Please send Josh home.  We know that the man with the horrible hair will win but at least I could stand it if Josh weren’t there.  Last week’s survival of all four has to be because they wanted to send Josh home but he so clearly did so much better than that humiliating muumuu with a sash that AR brought.

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

        “the man with the horrible hair” – excellent. I used to live with a guy friend an another girl, and we would always call Adam “the rooster” when he got out of bed and combed his hand through his forelock, thus causing it to stand up in the way that AR seems to cultivate purposefully. “Anthony Ryan, Roosterman and Designer of Bo-Ring Tight Sheath/Columns.”

        • AnneElliot

          I see his hair and all I think of is Eraserhead.  

    • LCTerrill

      Ohhh, Paris. I want to go to there. Stayed by the Sorbonne the last time, and I looooved it!

    • Pennymac

      I thought that bar looked familiar, having never been to Paris, I couldn’t understand why : )
      Georgina Chapman is being swallowed by a giant anemone, by the way….

    • MilaXX

      I got blocked by AR on twitter for saying he and Isaac should have been punched for that ugly mumu. Not my finest moment.

      Josh will go this week if he returns to his tacky ways. I am also concerned about Emilio.

      • carolclark12

         I can’t stop laughing about the possibility of punching Isaac for praising that godawful dress AR made.  Violence shouldn’t be this funny.

        • MilaXX

          Honestly it was in reply to a comment on my timeline about how unflattering the dresses were. The kerfluffle arose because AR was @ replied.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Props to you for honest tweeting,MilaXX!  Speak truth to chicanery.

      • alyce1213

        Maybe you should have said “flogged.”

        I feel the same about Josh or maybe Emilio, who’s been losing his mojo lately.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/6PQUNH7VYANAXMRMEEM763V3EU victor liu

        Well now you won’t get to hear AR gloat when he inevitably wins. Think of it as a plus.

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

        Oh, ’tis fine to be blocked by AR. I should think he’d be reticent regarding that sack, but you were bold enough to point out its shortcomings, which makes you the winner in that little passive exchange.

      • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

        Brilliant!  It was an ugly dress.  Truly ugly, that poor girl.

        • MilaXX

          Complete truth: e then replies something about turning the other cheek. To which I replied, well fine and take your ugly dress with you.

          • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

            High fives!  I’d definitely slap both his cheeks for his offense.  And that’s just for the dress, at least that hair wasn’t permanent.  Oy.

          • formerlyAnon

             Hmmm – and you’re usually so diplomatic! Tell the truth: was it him [his overpraised work] getting on your last nerve, or were the meds (with or without liquid assistance) urging you on to brutal honesty? ;)

            • MilaXX

              honestly I was just pissed at how blantanly biased PR is for AR’s win, Isaac’s obviously producer supplied compliments. The fact this was yet another “real woman” challenge where the designer couldn’t design for a non model body just pissed me off. I an honestly say wanting to punch him may not have been the best way to convey that,but I was surprised that he even bother to acknowledge my tweet. No meds or alcohol influenced my tweet, just anger. That’s why this season I’m skipping the “real woman” challenge altogether.

      • muzan-e

        I think in fact you win the internet for getting blocked by Anthony Ryan over a dress for a TV show.

        Bravo.

    • PaulaBerman

      One possibility is that they will find a way to cut Josh whether he deserves it or not. If they keep Josh, they would probably auf Emilio, even though I thought his work overall was great this season. BUT what will probably happen is the usual BS faux drama and then no auf– a Final Four after all. Sigh.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      I would say that they’re gunning for Josh, but I thought that the last time, too, and they not only sent him to the finals, they gave him second place, with ANYA in first. Ugh to both of them.

      • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

        Further proof, (as if we needed it) of the utter ass-hattiness of the “judging”

    • alula_auburn

      Ooh la la!  I missed the lounge the last two weeks for family things (although seeing part of not last weeks but the week before with my fashion-loathing uncle was kind of hilarious.)  But I missed everyone here!

      Is it just me, or is the second bar pic a little TARDIS-y looking?

    • swissgirl

      Another question for the ages is why would Josh dress like such a moron in PARIS? What’s with the capri leggings? He’s auf’d tonight for sure.

      • 3boysful

         So, those would be, let’s see  . . . manpreggings?

        • alula_auburn

          “manpreggings” sends my fanfic-honed mind to an unfortunate place.

          • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

            LOL!  Too traumatizing to think about.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Good grief, they’re dressed that way in PARIS??  Les Parisiennes must have been sneering up a storm.  I mean it.  Europeans judge appearances like Isaac only wish he could.  I made a point, when I was in Paris 10 years ago, to wear good shoes and a coordinated outfit that was as chic as dark November and being a traveler permitted.

      Well, then again, when the designers (term used loosely) packed for the show they may not have anticipated a little jet-setting.  But… Josh, for the lovea international relations……

      Otherwise, this will be a poor man’s version of that rather great Season 3 episode, and I, for one, will be comparing, as invidiously as all get-out.

      • Qitkat

        You know, you took the words right out of my mouth. I’d love to go to Paris, and one of my biggest concerns, seriously, is what I would and wouldn’t wear. Especially since I am footwear challenged for pain reasons.

        • NDC_IPCentral

          Girlfriend, my feet, which now are chemo-feet with peripheral neuropathy, are right in step with yours.  I would be more chausseur-challenged now than I was a decade ago, that’s for sure.  But I think there are reasonable choices beyond wearing sneakers, which the Euros just fall around laughing at.  I’m a big fan of Beautifeel shoes, which are cushioned for the thin soles of us peeps of a certain collagen-deficient age.

          • Qitkat

            I liked, but not because you have the chemo pn feet. So sorry that continues. Hope yours will be transitory. I’m not familiar with Beautifeel, will check them out.

          • Qitkat

            Oh my. Such an impressive selection of lovely shoes. And free returns. Ordinarily I would never consider ordering shoes without trying them on. Definitely worth considering. Thank you NDC.

            • NDC_IPCentral

              Qitkat, chemo-feet will take some time, and I may not recover full sensation, or… dum-de-dum-dummmm, they may worsen.  I was reading about chemo-feet in Susan Gubar’s “Living with Cancer” blog most recent post, and the comments really… well, they were a downer, mostly.  But each case is individual, so I’m going to hope that my nerves will regenerate just as my eyebrows sort of are starting to (mostly rather coarse stuff, but there’s the promise of more conventional hair).  As to Beautifeel, I found those first at Comfort One Shoes (Comfort AND Shoes?!?  What a concept!) in Washington, DC around 14/15 years ago, and they were a godsend.  Better sized toe-boxes, those cushioned innersoles, and designs that weren’t dreadful.  I never’ve worn Louboutins or Jimmy Choos, and I don’t plan on doing so in my 7th decade, but at least Beautifeel doesn’t scream “orthopedic/old foof.”

              I buy Beautifeels using the European sizing system, too, so if you don’t know your Euro size, get fitted so that you can order correctly.  Bon chance!

            • Call me Bee

              If I may chime in–I order ALL my shoes online.  I wear a 12N, and while I don’t have any particular foot problem, NO ONE in town, save for the Grandma stores, carries that size.  So I order online from Zappos, Shoebuy and Stuart Wetizman mostly,a nd send back what doesn’t fit well.  I learned really quickly which brands will fit.  So don’t shy away from ordering shoes–you can always return.

            • UsedtobeEP

              I am getting ready to go that route. 10N here. It is useless to try and buy shoes locally.

            • 3boysful

               J’adore Zappos.

            • formerlyAnon

               I also thank you for the Beautifeel recommendation. In my case it is A Knee.

              Re: chemo-feet, do not forget that people do tend to be more vocal when they are unhappy/dissatisfied. We like to put the suffering which is safely in the past out of our minds. And, you did have, if I recall, a near-textbook perfect experience with tumor-shrinking and surgery, which is unusual.  Perhaps your feet will also rebound optimally.

            • NDC_IPCentral

              I can only hope for the rebound, and thanks, formerlyAnon, for the buck-up remarks, since I’ve been feeling a little blue about the survival and recurrence statistics – Sword of Damocles, especially as I began to feel the first symptoms of my illness right about now, a year ago.  You cheered me up!

            • formerlyAnon

               Well, the statistics would make anyone blue once in a while, but unless they actually rain down upon you, I hope you can spend most of your time feeling/living like the happy minority.  I mean, SOMEbody has to be one of the best outcomes or else they wouldn’t be lurking there in the stats as well, right?

              I know it must be very hard living under that sword, sometimes. To be honest, that’s the reason I hate going for a mammogram. I just know that there are women sitting in the waiting room with me in utter dread, looking outwardly just like those of us who’ve been luckier. And I hate knowing that.

    • Qitkat

      POOF! They’re in Paris.
      SNORT! Cynthia Rowley always seems like she just finished a joint. 
      WTH is The Beautiful Georgina wearing?
      PLEASE send AR home. No? Josh? No? Emilio? No? Just not my Uli. 
      CHEERS everybody! Wish I was there too.

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

        Yes, keep Uli. Begone others, I care not.

        did georgie tie a chicken around her waist?

    • http://www.facebook.com/Murphy.J.Colin Colin Murphy

      The only one I’m confident WONT get cut is Uli. I think that if Ryan completely fails he could have a 50% 50% chance of going home against Josh. But if Emilio fails completely he could go home too. 

      • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

        any of the boys can go, if you ask me.

    • Girl_With_a_Pearl

      And will the be asked to design an outfit inspired by Paris or some section of Paris?  Why they just might do that.

      Sure looks like they supplied a jacket for Josh.  No jacket: no entre vous. No cheesy tanks shall pass!  The House of V; after all.

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

        OMG you’re so right. He hasn’t been seen in anything but a hiddy fluorescent tank for weeks. Of course, he did bring out the leopard slippers to add some class…

        • guest2visits

          They are leopard!  I wonder if they’re Valentino. Like from the from the Valentino gift shop! (little teehee).

        • another_laura

          And Josh couldn’t resist szhooszhing the sleeves of the blazer.  The jacket equivalent of capris, non?

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

            True. He did say when he was talking to his Veteran last week that as far as “don’t ask, don’t tell” went, no one even had to ask when it came to him. If you wrote “manpris, leopard slippers, hiddy tank top, and pushed-up blazer arms with bronzer and gelled hair” you could only interpret him as exactly who he is.

      • Polka_Dotty

        Josh wore that blazer (with the rose on the lapel) last week in a talking head. Only Emilio looks like an actual businessperson.

        • l_c_ann

          I thought Anthony Ryan’s floral print jacket was worse.  I do hate the prints that look as if they were pulled before all the colors were run.

    • Stubenville

      Hmmm… if this episode is as cracktastic as last week’s perhaps we’d better nibble something to take the edge off of the liquor. Some  Ladurée macarons perhaps?   

      • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

        would you like some of my suckling pig?

        • Stubenville

          Perhaps I’ll have a nibble. I’m afraid quantities of hard liquor will be required tonight.

    • Stubenville

      I know it’s not going to happen, but I wish they’d the designers them more than thirty seven minutes to whip up a couture gown. And something more specific than “make a pretty dress.”  And since they’re at Maison Valentino, this would be the perfect challenge to make them all use the same color of fabric – Valentino red!

      • formerlyAnon

         Though then Valentino would have to retain the right to own the dresses, so they could be burnt lest unauthorized hideousities in Valentino red be seen in the land.

    • Stubenville

      Schmauff? Hope for AR, will settle for Josh, afraid everyone is going to get a pony again.  :^/

    • Pennymac

      Ugh. Rewatching Isaac’s fawning over AR from last week is nauseating. I’m going to decide to LOVE Anthony Ryans design this week, in the hope that “They always auf the one I love” will come true. Otherwise, I think Josh will be going home.

    • Call me Bee

      harsh underlighting is not my idea of fun, but I’m game.  Perhaps if everyone has enough champagne, we won’t see each other’s crepey necks and nose hair.  :)

      before we get started, may i state one of my many peeves about the beautiful georgie?  it’s the way she constantly talks about “the eye”.  who’s eye?  what eye?  i half expect her to take out one of hers and roll it across the stage.  own your own opinions lady, it’s your eye you’re talking about!

    • Pennymac

      Will they get more than 37 minutes to make a couture gown? (cough, cough) 

    • Polka_Dotty

      Obviously packing only took 10 seconds. In real time. All they had to do was throw their schmattas in a baggie…

    • Stubenville

          They could have just had drinks. Speaking of which…

      • NDC_IPCentral

        If they were there mid-summer, and it looks as though they might have been (heat: see Josh fanning himself at the V show), the sun probably didn’t set until 10 or later.

    • Pennymac

      Ok, somebody convert 3000 Euros quick. How much US is that?
       

      • zelavie

      • Pennymac

         $3900.00 and some change….

      • NDC_IPCentral

        Around $4500 or so, the rough calculation is half-again, but a Currency Converter could give you a more exact calculation.

      • http://twitter.com/Alloyjane Alloy Jane

        Could it be a conspiracy?  Could they have paid him off to make the most obnoxious pile of tacky in PR history?  

        Then again, it could just be Josh having to exorcise the excess tacky out of his body after having to pretend he was a normal, non-sociopathic human last week…

    • Call me Bee

    • Stubenville

      Dear god – AR and Josh are dressed like clowns for the defile.

    • Polka_Dotty

      3,000 Euros = $3981. Thank you, show, for making me do my own research.

      • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

        Hahaha. Josh spent nearly $4,000 on that floral nonsense. My mind boogles. I can see Emilio’s at least looks really expensive. No idea what AR will turn out but I do hope Uli’s Gladiator Alligator turns out fab.

        • Stubenville

          He probably spent $100 and blew the rest on bronzer and hair gel in the duty free shop at the airport.

    • dschubba

      Shenanigans. There’s no way Emilio ranked Joanna Coles before Anna Wintour.

      • blondie65

        The producers made him say it in that order. No doubt. Then he threw up.

        • Lisa_Cop

          Because I’m so disgusted with this show I will divulge that Joanna lives at 93rd & Riverside Drive in NYC. We live 2 blocks away & my husband often sees her leaving in the morning.

    • alula_auburn

      Oy, hearing the designers talk about couture is like teaching an English class to first years who just discovered post-modernism.  Lots of pretension, lots of words that don’t mean what they think they mean, and producing a strong desire to drink.

      • formerlyAnon

         Folk-punk sounds awful. (And I like folk & punk more than most people I know.) But I’d buy an album with that title. Just to see what the  minds behind the title were up to.

      Uli’s dress could be fabulous.  Or totally ugly. 
      I’m concerned.

    • zelavie

      Josh, that is a hot mess.

    • guest2visits

      Gorgeous, gorgeous fabric Emilio.  Hope he keeps the black flower appliques. 

      Josh looks like he picked fabric for future tank tops.

    • Laure G

      Finally! For once I’m watching PR live so I get to comment on T Lounge! Whoo!

      Anyway, i just noticed that Emilio is the only one with a colorful, not textured, fabric…. except for that floral print Josh has. Which, actually, speaking of Josh that floral print with the textured black fabric just doesn’t work for me.

    • Stubenville

      Josh’s fabric is usually made into tea cozies…

      • Pennymac

         Are tea cozies usually made from tacky overpriced prints with colors only Josh could love?

        • Stubenville

          My apologies; apparently I’ve insulted the entire tea cosy industry.

          • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

            i have a tea cozy with frieda kahlo on it.

    • Jasmaree

      Josh is going home. No way they’re gonna let him get away with that hideous mismatched print.

    • carolclark12

      I haven’t been paying attention, just sort of listening to it in the background.  Finally, I looked at the tv in time to see that flowered cotton that Josh chose.  Why doesn’t Joanna just go ahead and send him home now?

    • Peeve

      Holy fuck, Batman! Josh’s looks even worse put together!

      • Call me Bee

        Oh my gosh.  I just caught a glimpse of Josh’s dress–YIKES! 

        • Peeve

           I know, right? He might have been able to pull off a Jeffrey (doubtful, but hey, a girl can dream) if he’d not gone to the black lace. Eeeeuuwwww.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Oh man, what is with these designers?  Of course, they’re tired, exhausted from their trans-Atlantic venture, but…. Josh’s choice is Michael’s Crafts.  How in the world can he think that cheap looking floral print qualifies as “couture?”

      Emilio’s overthinking and is going to muck up his design…. NO SLEEVES, or at least no 17th C Dutch matron sleeves, please.

      Can’t make a determination on either Uli’s or AR’s, but Uli’s transparent base has to require a lot of fitting and finishing….

      • Polka_Dotty

        Well, we already know that AR’s design will be chic, fresh and young!

    • Polka_Dotty

      “My designers went to Paris and all they brought back were these tacky fabrics.”

    • dschubba

      AR only had half as long as everyone else! It’s gonna make his win that much more impressive!

    • zelavie

      All the great couturiers use glue guns!

    • Peeve

      I know it’s been said a million times, but why the hell do they give them money for all these expensive fabrics, and then give them no time? Especially for this challenge. I would love to see something that would knock my socks off.

      • dschubba

        I can’t help but flash back to the S3 Paris trip. At least they gave them a couple of days that time.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/DBSIHWVY4ECXGNXAXFXJMSCNIE Katrin

        Agreed! There hasn’t been a challenge yet that gave them enough time to be creative, execute well, sleep on it, and have time for revisions. It mostly boils down to who gets lucky and has the right idea right off the bat.

    • dschubba

      In all seriousness, Joshua’s floral fabric reminds me of a last-minute Halloween costume I wore in the 9th grade.

      • Polka_Dotty

        But did you think to pair it with black lace?

        • dschubba

          I might have. I was going as “ugly”.

      • Call me Bee

        It looks like 70s quilt fabric–and quilt fabric was really ugly in the 70s.
         

      • CozyCat

        When they showed the work in progress, I had hopes.  Somehow working a print like that in with the black lace could have been really inventive and elegant.  But just making the skirt out of the print does nothing.

    • NDC_IPCentral

      Well the producers have managed to squeeze the Paris trip, the fabric purchase, the Valentino show and the sewing of the gowns into 30 minutes.  So we have to faff around for another 27 minutes now for a runway of 4 dresses and the pontifications and insults of the judges.  Now that’s high-quality TeeVee.

      Not.

      Josh, love ya hon, but that fabric was couture upholstery.

        I’m getting vaguely racist loans from vaguely Native American loan shark commercials featuring this beautiful young brunette with her hair in a smooth ponytail and shockingly white teeth, a vaguely racist tribal drumbeat in the background. I think the idea is “you stole our land, we steal your money and good credit”.

           Western Sky is run from the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation. My husband calculated the repayment percentages, and borrowers wind up paying usurious interest that brings them to hundreds of times the original loan amount.

      This is ree-damn-diculous, but how much do I love Uli’s Hunger Games riff?

      Seriously, if they think they can justify giving this to Josh, I want what they’re smoking.

      I’m calling Anthony Ryan as the winner of the fashion deathmatch. If not him, then Uli.

      • OrigamiRose

        Project Deathmatch does have a much more honest ring to it at this point, doesn’t it?

      • MoHub

         I think Uli not only had the better rework, but she had to go to the finals because Lifetime needs to throw a sop to the Bravo viewers by making sure one Bravo-era designer is in it at the end. However, Uli won’t win because Lifetime has to maintain the idea that its PR designers are better than the Bravo designers.

        I suspect that after the coming season, when Lifetime will officially have more seasons of PR than Bravo did, the Powers That Be will dispense with recognizing any Bravo designers in future All Stars competitions.

      For this stupidity, the judges should be forced to sit there and watch them for the whole hour.

      I just noticed… but what the fuck is Georgina wearing?

        Ooof! Okay, Uli’s still here. That’s all that matters.

      Uli’s reimagined dress is really good!!  What creativity.  She can design.

      • Call me Bee

        Yes!  Totally loved the little jacket! 

      • libraangel

        And she got her sweet deserved revenge when she used the lining to make such an interesting dress!

      Uli is not only an awesome designer, but probably the nicest person to ever be on PR.

      4 days! Why do I want to see the collection? Nope. Don’t care.

    • zelavie

      I actually really like Joshua’s second dress.  He managed to make the lace and floral work really well.  Uli’s was, of course, far superior, and I’m pleasantly surprised that the judges stopped dancing around and gave her the rightful spot in the final 3.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/XPWSQ2BDU5XJIA23AMYVBRWZBA Eric

        Joshua actually managed to make the fabric combination work. The shorter skirt was crisp and flirty and the lace added some interest without dominating. It helped that there was black in the print to tie them together. Still, Uli’s was better.

        • Call me Bee

          Yes–Uli’s was more of an interesting design.  Josh re-made a fairly simple dress and let the fabrics do the work. 

          • Stubenville

            But, but, but he hemmed it and turned the beat around turned the bodice around. 
            Meanwhile Uli made a new dress and a cropped lace jacket.

            • http://profile.yahoo.com/XPWSQ2BDU5XJIA23AMYVBRWZBA Eric

               I agree- he didn’t do much, but he did edit, and that’s something he had a lot of trouble with in season 9.  Uli’s rework does show more imagination – though I wonder if the dress would look as nice without the jacket.

            • libraangel

              I just LOVED it when Uli said that she used the lining to make the second dress! The look on the judges’ faces! FU INDEED!

        • Melvis Velour

          I knew Uli had it when Georgina was visibly startled by the reconstruction when it came around the screen…  Francine honey, you can stop screaming into the phone, Uli and Emilio are in :)

      • BuffaloBarbara

        Josh’s was definitely better the second time around, and the floral didn’t look as much like upholstery in a cute, kicky little short skirt. But yes, Uli’s… way better.  That would have made a lovely look for an evening party.

    • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

      And now what is this fuckery? Double Divas? And you know, I’m going to have to watch it and snort.

      • OrigamiRose

        I’ve seen so many ads for that show and don’t get it.  Is it about women who wear double-letter bras?

        • BrooklynBomber

          I think it’s about the deep emotional problem of buying underwear, and the angel women who make it all okay.

          • OrigamiRose

            Best description ever *grin*

      • BuffaloBarbara

        I actually could see it as an interesting one-shot, especially following a fashion show.  It’s actual useful information on “television for women.”

        But a whole SERIES?  We’re seriously going to see one week after another about how to fit bras?

        • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

          Yup. My one time viewing is done and I never have to do it again. Despite the ginormous boobies.

          • pdquick

             They lost me on the “I’m  not an escort; I’m a housewife,” who when she started trying on stuff for the camera was clearly the latter.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        “What Not To Wear” season celebrity (alas) is on TLC right now (10pm EDT), and there’s much better thinking and sharper writing than what Lifetime spews out….

        • http://twitter.com/urban_gypsy Tess Danesi

          I should have taken your advice and switched over. That was the most scripted “reality” show I’ve ever seen. And their cackling was most shrill and irksome.

      • MoHub

        I’m a small woman with fairly large boobs (32D), and I can assure you that I have no desire to see this program.

    • dschubba

      I’m not gonna lie, that was kind of a cool twist, but there’s no way anyone with at least one functioning cornea could look at Uli and Joshua and deem it “too close to call”. I’d love to see that type of tiebreaker deployed in a situation that actually warranted it.

      • ThaliaMenninger

        Like maybe last week, between Of Course and Emilio.

        • MoHub

           Well, I’m glad it didn’t happen last week because AR would have gone through no matter what Emilio did.

      • Introspective

        This. I cannot imagine that the ugliest of floral dreck churned out by Josh was actually billed as being in the same stratosphere as Uli’s first or even her 2nd garment.

        I cant even. The judges totally infuriated me with this “sew off”. What an insult to Uli. And the AR fix is still in. just wont stop. Emilio was cheated out of a genuine win. Makes for about the 2nd or 3rd time this happened already. Annoying.

        • libraangel

          • Addictedtowhitewater

             I can only imagine the endless back pain she must deal with…ouch!

          • pdquick

             Bless their hearts. Those girls look like busted up drag queens who will throw reall big bras at women–and now, little ones at men, who will appropriately run away. And there’s a fashion show where “Momma was wooried about your potatoes and banana,” which thanks to her wraparound, we never get to see.

    • OhSayNow

      I was not really feeling Emilio’s Dress, all I could see was The Handmaid’s Tale. Also, ten hours for a couture challenge…ugh.

      • muzan-e

        At first, the brutal time-limit baffled me. What on earth was the point of bothering with a couture challenge at all, if you’re not going to give them time to really show off their flawless tailoring, their precision, their painstaking devotion to tiny, hand-fashioned details? After all, some of the remaining contestants have spent the entire season riding on their excellent tailoring and devotion to handmade details - 

        And it suddenly became crushingly clear.

      • libraangel

        They said they were judging them on their tailoring skills, then give them no time ?!

    • Geoffrey Maugham

      Actually, those chairs are very comfortable. We were there a couple years ago.

    • l_c_ann

      None of the fabric looked like 3000 euros, much less 3000 euros each.

    • Girl_With_a_Pearl

      A whole lot of shenanigans during the judging portion (as usual).  Emilio should have won.  AR wins instead in a dress that reminded me of one Michael C. did in his first season, only not as well.  Ulli has to do a dress in an hour against Josh?  WTF

    • Lilithcat

      This evening sure went from the sublime to the ridiculous.

      Emilio was robbed, and Joshua’s taste is still all in his mouth.

      • Qitkat

        Lucky you. Must have been an exquisite evening at SAIC. The school I would have loved to have attended.

    • guest2visits

      Poor Uli; what a crappy thing to do to both of them – it was such an unnecessary and mean little game to pull at the end.
      Dance! Dancing monkeys! Dance!   As if PR hasn’t already shown complete contempt for designers. Beware; if you know how to
      sew and have a head full of ideas that you’d like to build on - Lifetime has a dark little dungeon waiting; it’s called Project Runway.
       
      I think I liked Emilio’s more before Joanna’s visit. Uli’s too. But he really couldn’t go wrong with his fabric, and the silhouette was
      a classic one.  And yes, Isaac the dress would work perfectly at various lengths; because that was the nature of the design. And if
      the judges expected MORE from Emilio or any of them.. how?… they wasted nearly 4000.00 dollars and a plane trip to run back
      and vomit something stupendous out in one day.    I thought Emilio’s was the best tonight.
      As for Anthony’s I didn’t think black was a risky choice at all, although the fabrics looked interesting pieced together.
      But without a lining, it’s a couture nightie. It looked very negligee to me.
      I liked Josh’s idea of the black lace and the floral; but the top didn’t fit, the skirt needed more design.
      Uli’s looked more avant garde to me; and I liked the back a lot more than the judges. Both of the re-designed dresses were
      better; Uli came up with something amazing, and Josh’s was an improvement – but not to level of the judges’ wonderous praise.
      They both deserved a special award for not stabbing any of the judges with something sharp (no wonder they all fled the room);
      and for keeping it together long enough to create something unique and pretty and worthwhile; in an hour!

       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       
       

      • Addictedtowhitewater

         It was painful to watch Uli describe her re-worked outfit as it really sounded like she was on the verge of tears throughout. Josh won some respect from me in his treatment of the veteran last week and he has been much more tolerable overall this season but to imply that there was any contest between his gown and Uli’s was insane. Uli has shown herself to be a true designer as well as a professional *and* a kind and generous person. If I were ever so lucky I would love to have Uli design something for me because I know that from start to finish she would make me feel respected, heard, and beautiful.

        • guest2visits

          I know; what exactly did they need to describe?  “this was the last humiliating trick I had to perform before I could
          get the hell out of here. the end”    I thought Uli looked like she felt; how many hours in the air, and all the racing
          around to get Lifetime their soap opera?

        • libraangel

          I am SOOOOOO angry how they treated poor Uli! Like she had to prove herself – NOT!

      • AnneElliot

        Didn’t they do the same thing last year on The Fashion Show on Bravo?  Isaac was a judge on that show too.  

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/2JLWFTPQMKBY3AA444RMKERJ7M Hans

      Observations:
      1. Emilio’s looked like a bedspread from JCPenney.  Could it be a clue to next years corporate sponsor? Hint, hint?
      2. Seemed the producers really wanted to keep Joshua despite clearly being the worst this week, so they come up with this wacky one hour rework believing that Uli would not be able to rework hers due to it’s construction.  Afterall, Joshua had 50 yards of Waverly Puke de la Primtemps Percale to work with.  But alas, he was still beaten.
      3. Why not save the production costs of the Paris trip and give the designers longer to complete the gowns even if they had to use fabric from Mood?
      4. Four days to prepare for the final runway?  What has this show become?

      • pdquick

        Emilio made the dress he should have made at first. Ulli mada a dress that was in fact, a f*** you to the judges, with draped lining material, and the judges loved it.

      Makes my blood boil, that.

      • CozyCat

        Actually LB is an incredibly rapid sewer.  In her season she was turning stuff out faster than anyone else and had a fully finished collection ready for Tim’s visit–then scrapped it and did ANOTHER collection.  She would eat these people for breakfast in an hour-long challenge.
        BUT:  I wonder if Uli’s performance tonight will help shift the judges away from AR…..

        • SRQkitten

          I don’t think so. I think Uli’s biggest handicap is one that she can do nothing about – she’s a contestant from the good-ol’ Bravo days and I just don’t see the twits at Lifetime/BM allowing one of the older/better PR version folks to win. Mind you, I would LOVE to be proven wrong here. But Uli has produced a number of far superior looks to the others -particularly AR – and after the trash talk the judges gave her over her dress this week (and the gross way they fawned over AR’s wretched piece last week), don’t think that’s gonna happen.

          srq

      OK, making Uli and Joshua squirm was supposed to be nail-biting TV.  It was.  What?  Uli could get kicked off over this?  Then, both of them redid their old looks extremely well.  I loved Joshua’s kicky new fun dress.  The black was scaled back and didn’t fight the print, whose smallish scale fit the small skirt.  I suspect he got lucky in his makeover.  And I really admired Uli’s brand new design solution.  Really nice draping and good-looking neckstrap. She’s an amazing designer.  First I feared that Uli would mess up.  Then after she and Joshua both did well, I thought the producers would keep both of them.  They would have if Joshua had been Anya or Anthony Ryan.  But he’s not and the producers made their script come true.
