- I don't get it, either.
- She used to be very, very cute. Beautiful eyes.
Not a very good actress by any means.
- Yes, Alyssa Milano is far too C-list to host something as culturally significant as [italic]Project Runway[/italic].
How tragic that the next Christian Siriano may be ushered into stardom by someone of Alyssa's limited range.
- She's always annoyed me. She must have an amazing work ethic and show up everywhere 30 minutes early. It's not her talent.
- I wonder if they asked a lot of people and were turned down. When you think fashion, hip, trendy, you don't think Alyssa Milano. Something is very weird here.
- It should be someone actually connected to the fashion industry (remember when they tried to get Kelly Rowland to host that one fashion show? It didn't work). She was not a good choice.
- Alyssa Milano also has a treasure trail--just google "alyssa Milano treasure trail" and you'll see what I mean.
- Couldn't they get some B list model?
- As if something like Project Runway All-Stars requires an A lister to host. No A list celebrity in their right would want to go on that boring show.
- I don't care that she's C-list but it does bother me that she really doesn't have any style.
- Even Mischa Barton would have been a better choice.
- Anyone have any predictions as to who is going to win?
- I'm impressed that she's managed to stay in the game after so many years. I can't think of the last time I saw her in something that wasn't a rerun of Who's The Boss.
- The hosts they had were models and both were horrible. Angela Lindvall was dull as dish water and Carolyn Murphy was equally as bad. Alyssa claims her mother was a fashion designer while she was growing up and her grandfather was a milliner so it is a natural she host. in TV she is knows as the kiss of death - when she joins your show you are a year away from cancellation.
- Agreed R14. Neither Angela nor Carolyn had any personality whatsoever. It was almost fascinating watching both of them completely incapable of being witty, charming, interesting, dramatic. Or at least, it was fascinating for about ten minutes.
If Milano is the best PR could get, the series is not doing well. She's the Ted McGinley of the 2010s.
- Also, Milano has no sense of fashion, and never has. So what's the point?
I am kind of looking forward to seeing Jeffrey Sebelius again though.
- They never called me.
- Alyssa's in the fashion...er, apparel business. She has a line of sports fan clothing for women called Touch. I don't think she's all that suited for PR All-Stars, but at least she ought to know how to deliver a line. I don't think anyone could be worse than those spokesmodels they used the last two seasons.
- [quote]Alyssa Milano also has a treasure trail--just google "alyssa Milano treasure trail" and you'll see what I mean.
By definition, a treasure trail must have a discernible treasure at its end. I don't think this applies to Ms. Milano. (Unless of course, there's a pile of Pepperidge Farm Mint Milanos there.)
- Heidi has a sort of dominatrix vibe that other models lack, and which really makes her stand out as a host.
Personally, I think they should hire someone with real personality to spell her for "All Stars", like Joan Collins. And I'm sure the old gal could use the work.
- Alyssa Milano is well-liked by Lifetime's target demo. That's why she has the job. This is not rocket science.
Also, R20, Joan Collins is 80 years old.
- 3 or 4 previous winners, and I'm not sure I agree with that. It's the 2nd and 3rd place finishers who deserve another shot. The winners already had their shot at fame and flopped. I hope none of them make it past the middle rounds, but it's likely at least one will be a finalist.
- I was thinking that too, R22. If you've won already, you had your shot. From the quick glimpse in the preview, it looks like Jeffrey's neck tattoo has finally betrayed him.
- Actually I hadnt thought about that but you're right R 22. It should be the runner ups getting a second chance. But it is kind of interesting to see if any if the past winners are still talented.
- Interesting group. I was hooked after the first five minutes, although I truly hope Jeffrey leaves this season early.
- I missed a lot of seasons b/c I only recognize Michael, Kortu, and penishead Jeffrey. This is low rent. The basement of Mood, the QVC accessories wall Mary Kay... I can't wait to see the judges
- I want her, BAD!
- Gah horrible vocal fry
- Everyone who has ever worked with Milano HATES her with a passion. She is, reportedly, an evil ass bitch. One production assistant even went as far as to put his own excrement on a sandwich and served it to her, after she demanded that he get her some food. The assistant watched and laughed as she ate it unknowingly.
- She looked so uncomfortable when she walked onto the runway before the models walked, as if she sensed she doesn't fit in.
- She sucks at this. And wtf is this million dollar shopper's mess?
- This is Korto's 3rd chance, I hope she wins this one. She was robbed both earlier times.
- Wow. Milano really is bad -- PR probably figured that having other models didn't work, so they'd try an actress. Unfortunately, Milano seemed like she had stage fright -- she was nervous and wooden and everything she said sounded as though she was reading it off a teleprompter.
I was sad to see Ari go, was hoping to learn more about her and her change. And why they gave the victory to the psycho-creep is beyond me.
If I get a dollar for every time Georgina uses the word "editor" I might be able to get as much plastic surgery as she's had.
- Debbie's dentures don't work!
- Lots of pretty outfits but none of them looked remotely punk.
- She's beautiful, smart, decently talented, and hard working.
- [quote]Milano seemed like she had stage fright -- she was nervous and wooden and everything she said sounded as though she was reading it off a teleprompter.
I was sort of shocked. Her performance tonight was worse than her acting is. It was like she couldn't even play herself.
- I agree about Milano being "nervous and wooden." She sucked the energy out of the room.
I also can't believe QVC and Mary Kay! Fuck, this show will get in bed with ANYONE.
I was surprised, however, to see the Homewrecker makeup artist from L'oreal. Mary Kay is an independently owned company -- maybe they just hired on the L'oreal team that usually does the show and put them in Mary Kay shirts?
I have never heard of the haircare line, although I don't know much about that industry. I assume it's equally sketchy?
- Can someone please tell the producers give
Lifetime their money back & bring the show back to Bravo. I always forget when its on & they never repeat it. Please leave Lifetime.
- How do you get someone to be an All-Star when she never won a challenge on her season? Obviously for the drama, which proves that the show is no longer primarily about fashion.
- [quote] I truly hope Jeffrey leaves this season early.
So help me, I would do Jeffrey in an instant. I have always found him to be sexy, and I don't even know why!!!!
On the surface, he's kinda creepy and short and not really attractive. But I'm SO attracted to him!!!
I need help.
[quote] I agree about Milano being "nervous and wooden." She sucked the energy out of the room.
Wow, I thought it was me, but she really did a terrible job of hosting. Even the contestants seemed put off by her script reading.
[quote] I was sad to see Ari go, was hoping to learn more about her and her change.
Same here. In all honesty, Michael Knight should have gone home.
His white booty dress did not resemble punk rock in the least bit. It was just YET ANOTHER cheap hoochie MK dress. He is SO one note.
Michael's aesthetic is tight, short, and slutty.
At least Ari's dress was interesting. Michael's dress was the same old same old from him.
- [quote]She's beautiful, smart, decently talented, and hard working.
Yes, you are.
- The should have just given the job to Zana Roberts Rossi, the Marie Claire chick. She hosted an after all stars show last time, she has a personality and can deliver a line.
I was really shocked at how bad Milano was. Makes me want Lindval back. I would even prefer Rachel Zoe at this point.
I too have hears numerous tales how of much Alyssa is hated in Showbiz. Tales of her cuntiness are legendary. Teri Hatcher Legendary.
- Gah, there's nothing attractive about Jeffrey. He's chinless. So what does he do? Underline it with a shitty neck tattoo. They should've kept Ari (who I think passes just fine) she could really sell those horseshit lines like "Mary Kay is an iconic makeup line, I'm so excited about the QVC accessories line, it's amazing!"
- I think it's in Georgina's contract that she's introduced as "The Beautiful Georgina Chapman". She's gotten that intro in EVERY episode. It was funny to anticipate Alyssa saying that and sure enough, there it was.
- OMG R45 you're right. I remember that from last season -- "the beautiful Georgina Chapman." And there it was again. Maybe that's why Milano was so dreadful, she's terrified of not kissing up to the judges enough.
Or, as someone said, Milano's such a bad actress she can't even play herself.
- I enjoyed her Charmed and Whose the Boss, and other things. She's even good in Mistresses. She should not be nervous hosting.
- Jeffrey is so fugly I have a hard time looking at him. He wasn't any better looking the first time he was on, but I hadn't upgraded to HDTV back then, so it was slightly more tolerable.
- I love Lyss Jayne Milano. She must have [italic]some[/italic] charm, I mean, she's been in, like, a million long-running tv series.
- PR All-Stars (like PR) is a Harvey Weinstein-owned show. The Beautiful Georgina Chapman is his wife, for the moment.
I assume that the modestly talented Alyssa blew him for the gig, as did the model-hostesses before her.
I like Isaac Mizrahi, always have. He could pretty much do the show on his own with a guest judge and I'd be happy. It probably wouldn't sit well with the Lifetime frauen.
I hate Elena, Irina and Massapequa Chris. I love Daniel Esquivel. He's a sweetheart, although he did get melt-down-level touchy that one time. I also like Korto, who has one of the few projects that I actually remember from PR - the fabulous seatbelt coat.
I thought dino-visor Viktor could have gone last night and Ari (who looks gorgeous) should have stayed.
- I used to like Mizrahi then I saw him selling velour mu mus he created on QVC. I don't care how much money he makes they were hidious and he was hawking them like they were coture.
- Alyssa's runway outfit looked like something Joan Cusack would've worn in Working Girl.
How apropos that Jeffrey is designing children's clothing, since he now looks like a child molester.
Isn't PR bringing back previous winners basically a tacit way of saying that a win means nothing? Why should the victors have to return to sweat and toil for prizes when their initial win was supposed to catapult them into success and fame?
- "Alyssa's runway outfit looked like something Joan Cusack would've worn in Working Girl." Ouch R52
- Jeffrey is the most repulsive designer that has been on the show...
- This is an ugly outfit.
- Alyssa talking about the show.
- Gabourey Sidibe as a guest judge? Really? Really!?!
- I'll probably be stoned for saying this, but they should have gotten Kelly Osbourne to host the show. She knows her shit and she has a good personality.
- R58=Sharon Osbourne
- For past winners, isn't coming on this show pretty much admitting that they failed to launch?
- r60 ding ding ding.
- Kelly would be brilliant compared to Dishwata Milano. And I hate Kelly.
- Stevie Wonder would be better than Alyssa.
- It must be very hard to convince former contestants to do All-Stars, based on many of the contestants who do return.
I imagine that it's because of how foolish most of them appear when they see themselves later on TV.
- Can't they get Dorothy Kilgallen, Arlene Francis, Bennett Cerf and Henry Morgan?
- Project Runway is incredibly strenuous, the people who return are people who really could use the money. The prize is legit.
- I've been crazy about Alyssa Milano my whole life. She was my first celebrity crush when I was 7 or 8 when she was on "Who's the Boss" - the first time I realized I wanted to kiss girls and not boys. She can do no wrong in my book. I may have to watch Project Runway now.
- I agree, R54. Jeffrey is hideous and he should have gone home first for that monstrosity he sent down the runway. It's obvious they're going to kiss his ass this season just like they did the last time he was on the show.
- I don't mind Alyssa. And I see Daniel still hasn't learned to make anything but his black Dynasty jackets with a peplum. He's always so enthusiastic about making something 'edgy' or 'cool', then makes the same Joan Collins outfit.
- Jeffrey's even more hideous than he was last time and just as awful.
Did he bond with Nina Garcia Chinless Creative Director of Marie Claire Magazine over their shared chinlessness?
- I heart R70
- What was up with Michael Knight's leopard print corset? Damn he's put on some weight.
I hate Elena and I hate looking at her in HD. She must have horrible skin with the amount of make-up she piles on.
- This group has some of my all-time least favorites. Is Chris Palu the poster boy for cancer? Can't remember if that was his shtick on his season, but that seems familiar.
- [quote] Is Chris Palu the poster boy for cancer?
No, that was Anthony Ryan.
Chris Palu was and is a beautiful young man.
- Anthony Ryan and Chris Palu both have that ridiculous twink Mohawk.
But Chris is a snake in the grass.
- Chris Palu just looks like he's got cancer.
Did Anthony Ryan win the last all-stars, i can't remember.
- There isn't much room for the downward trajectory of the sponsorships.
I look forward to the next season with the Burlington Coat Factory accessory wall and Sally Beauty Supply hair and makeup room.
- From the New York Daily News:
[bold]Alyssa Milano and designer Kenley Collins get catty at 'Project Runway All Stars' party[/bold]
Alyssa Milano reportedly confronted fashion designer Kenley Collins at the 'Project Runway All Stars' season premiere party.
The claws were out at the “Project Runway All Stars” party last week as an epic catfight broke out between host and judge Alyssa Milano and fashion designer Kenley Collins, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l.
“Who’s the Boss?” star Milano was being feted at the Hudson Common party Tuesday on her debut as host of the popular Lifetime show when she got into a bizarre altercation with Collins, who has dressed the likes of teen singing sensation Ariana Grande and appeared in “All Star” after being a season-five finalist on “Project Runway.”
“Kenley was with one of Harvey’s (Weinstein, whose company produces the show) guests — this 80-year-old woman — and they pointed at Alyssa, and the old lady asked who the woman was with Alyssa, because she was with this female hanger-on and no one knew who the woman was,” a guest at the party who witnessed the incident told Confidenti@l.
At that moment, we’re told, Milano and her friend approached Collins, and the friend pointedly said: “If you’re talking stuff about us, then say it to our face.”
“Kenley was mortified, because she hadn’t said anything, and this woman was obviously delusional and needed to have her head read,” said a source.
Collins tried to smooth things over with Milano, apologizing for any confusion and asking the actress if she had received a gift bag she recently sent her.
But Milano, according to the source, snapped and said to Collins: “Excuse me, what is your name?”
“Alyssa tried to humiliate Kenley. She knew exactly who she was — she was on the show, after all. It was very, very mean,” said another source.
Collins responded by telling Milano her name and explaining that she’d recently sent her a gift bag with her clothing line in it. “ ‘I don’t care about that. Talk to my assistant,’ Milano told Collins,” the first source said.
“That’s when all hell broke loose,” the first source continued. “Kenley’s patience wore thin, and [bold]she told Milano, ‘You should care about that. You shouldn’t wear as much makeup as you do. You need to clean it up — you look sloppy. And you need to start wearing clothes that fit you properly and complement your shape.”[/bold]
“Kenley gave Milano a fashion lesson and showed her ‘who the boss is.’ She took the high road, then left. She doesn’t behave like a diva, like Alyssa,” said the source.
“Alyssa tried to humiliate Kenley, and she got a taste of her own medicine. It would have been a fun episode to watch had the cameras been rolling.”
Reps for Milano and the Weinstein Company didn't get back to us. A rep for Collins declined to comment.
- I bet Alyssa is a hoot when tipsy.
- Alyssa v. Kenley -
Girls, girls, you're both repellent.
- I would love to see a game of pass the apple (under the chin) featuring Jeffrey Sebelius and Nina Garcia Chinless Creative Director of Marie Claire Magazine
- I can't believe Kenley has a "rep" - sounds like she planted that story herself.
- r80, perfect word!
- Alyssa speaks like that drag queen whi does Chloe Sevigny. I think since it's on Lifetime, they really do favor women. And yes, Jeffrey's horrible dress did look like the leg lamp.
- As low rent as this season is, Alyssa still seems way out of her league. She looked ridiculous tonight.
- Glad to see Michael win tonight. He deserved it. His dress was fab.
And Jeffrey should have gone home. So sick of them kissing his ass.
- Seriously what was that shit pile he put down the runway? It was terrible, not even well made you could see seams and bagging, even the hood he made was shitty.
- For me, the show just doesn't work without Heidi, Tim and Nina. And the loss of Miss Kors is still felt on PR.
Alyssa Milano is a dreadful actress and an even worse reality show host.
- Ha no shit, I could've made a better hood amd my high school sewing teacher told me that she'd give me a B if I stopped touching the machines.
- Where is that butch, manly hunk Zac Posen?
- Elena was robbed tonight. I liked Irina's better too
That piece of shit Jeffrey made was the worst thing on PR in a long time. Yet he was the first one safe.
Why do all the designers dress so tacky and look so dirty?
- Why is that Alyssa Milano is SO bad as the hostess? There's something so wrong about everything she does, her nervous mannerisms, her misunderstanding of fashion, her inability to even smile sincerely. The only thing she seems able to do is read the cue card when it says "The BEAUTIFUL Gerogina Chapman."
- Here is why she is so bad as a host and judge. When she is critiquing your look - all I can think is "have you seen what you wear?" She comes off as desperately trying to have an opinion.
- Georgina is beautiful--hard to believe she gets hot for sucking off Harvey Weinstein-I bet the fact hes a billionaire had nothing to do with her attraction
- the show works so much better as an hour as opposed to the usual 90 min
- um-yeah Alyssa--you have a line of work out outfits or some such crap-what the hell are you so snotty about
- Her voice is such a put on. It's like when Grace Kelly got rid of her Philadelphia accent and replaced it with something not found in nature. Remember Teen Steam? Lol
- Well, look at it this way: If she weren't so bad, there wouldn't be a thread on this show at all.
- I'm sure every designer up there was laughing to themselves having Anya judge them, I'd like to see her try to compete among this group of designers, not her season which was the least talented season of designers ever.
Once again though the outfits this groups put out are impressive. Christopher and Korto weren't highlighted but they also produced fantastic designs.
I would have given the win to Irina, but I was fine with Michael winning. I personally found Elena's too literal for my taste.
- Just as a side note - that Russian guy from last PR season who walked off..on the reunion he was saying Zac Posen wished he was as successful as him when he was his age. That dude is 28 Posen is 33 and 5 years ago was pretty damn successful...
The Russian was hot though and probably a mean ass fuck.
- R96 - She's laughing all the way to he bank.
- Elena's outfit looked like a sci-fi alien costume. It was nicely made, but I'm not sure who would wear it, or where. And I haven't seen such a case of untreated bipolar disorder since I quit watching Homeland.
Jeffrey's attitude and that crap he sent down the runway are as ugly as he is.
I was expecting the show to be a snooze, but I am impressed with the overall level of talent thus far.
What are the sleeping arrangements like for All-Stars? Still dormitory-style?
- How did Alyssa get this job? The same way she gets all her other jobs... on her back and on her knees.
God knows why any former winner would want to come back to do the low rent, "All-Stars" show. It screams, "I couldn't actually make it and now I need the cash." I wonder if any of the contestants were forced to do it (ie was it in their original PR Contract)?
I keep thinking about how Kelly Clarkson had to do that World Idol shit and you just know she was contractually obligated.
They should have just gotten a former winner to host. From the looks of it, none of them are really doing anything.
- [quote] How did Alyssa get this job? The same way she gets all her other jobs... on her back and on her knees.
And on that note, please welcome... Anya Ayoung Chee!
Can someone please tell me what right that no talent, doesn't know how to sew, blowjob whore has, judging this group of contestants??
Honestly, she doesn't have enough talent in her entire body, to match the talent that every single person on this show has in their big toes!
The nerve of PR All Stars to put her in a judging position over the likes of Seth Aaron, Victor, Korto, Michael, Irina, etc., etc.
The only thing she's qualified at doing is seeing whose cock will fit in her ample cocksucking mouth, and from the looks of it, they ALL will.
Don't make me link to her cocksucking and fucking porn videos online, bitches, because I'll put her on BLAST!
- Did anyone catch that super awkward joke Alyssa tried to make about wearing the hood in the bedroom? Cringe...
- Is it in Georgina's contract that she's always introduced as "The Beautiful Georgina Chapman"?
She was announced that way last season as well.
- Don't any of you read DL? Alyssa has benn dead for MONTHS! From that perspective, she's doing a damn fine job.
- So glad marble mouth Daniel is gone.
- Alyssa is just absolutely smashing at her dear little job because she only has one teensy weensy little requirement and I daresay she fulfills it with extraordinary grace and perfection every time she introduces me to my many millions of fans and admirers the world over.
- Alyssa seems perfectly pleasant in her Wen ads and Feed the Children commercials, but she is instantly off putting on Project Runway. It's not just her demeanor, they are styling her terribly. She's a small petite person and can't wear just any clothes like a model can. They are giving her harsh hair and makeup and weird clothes that don't work on her. She would look better styled in a more relaxed, casual but chic way, like Aniston or something.
- I couldn't stand Jeffery in Season 3 and I can't stand him now. I honestly don't even think it was right of them to have 3 past winners back. Why not have some of the runners up from the past seasons instead?
I got a kick out of Christoper when he said that Jeffery's avant garde look reminded him of the leg lamp from a Christmas Story. I agreed with him there. It was 1 of the ugliest things I've ever seen. I knew they weren't going to get rid of him though.
- I bet Heidi Klum has it in her contract that the producers can't hire a host for this show that could rival or compete with her. That's why they settle for these strange choices.
- I thought Jeffrey was putting that hood on his model to protect her hair while she was getting dressed. Imagine how shocked I was when she walked down the runway with it still on.
- Bag head needs to go home.
- I've never particularly liked Jeffrey and find him disturbing to look upon...but he is a talented designer. There is a reason the judges weren't actually going to eliminate him last episode.
- Bag-head looked like she was wearing a very large lampshade. That much have been SOME party!
- R110 is right.
- Milano seems like she hates the contestants. She's mean, condescending and dismissive wile being completely talent-free herself.
Also, was Anyathepronwhore wearing some kind of ill-fitting bathing suit or romper thing? From the way it didn't hold together or fit, I presume she made it herself. No one wants to see those saggy tittays.
NSFW - Anyapron:
- "she is instantly off putting on Project Runway. It's not just her demeanor, they are styling her terribly"
I know, she looked pretty frowzy. You'd think the manufacturers of petite apparel would be sending her nice outfits and begging her to wear them, and you'd think she'd have the sense to wear them instead of things that are designed for a six-foot model.
Speaking of which, why don't they have a Petites Challenge? They have a "real women" challenge every season, make them all shorties this time.
- A petities challenge would be a good thing.
- Why is her make up so shiny? I finally understand the expression "powder your nose."
She is glowing and not in a good way.
- Has a host of a show ever been replaced midway through the season? Wasn't Billy Joel's wife fired from the first season of Top Chef midseason?
- Alyssa, that means you're out.
- Katie Lee Joel was on the entire season of Top Chef season 1, r123.
- Kathy Lee Joel was the most wooden and charisma-lacking host. As much as Padma can annoy with her vain mugging, she did bring the show to another level.
Alyssa Milano sucks, even Carolyn Murphy was better. There's just something about All-stars that bugs me. Isaac, Yanna Georgina. It all seems so bargain-bin, and the QVC accessory wall confirms it.
I think Alyssa is going for a China Chow vibe, and failing miserably.
- That's Zanna with a Z, r126.
Ms. Roberts Rassi to my inferiors
- It does seem low-rent, yet the top prize package is over $750,000. in cash and services.
- I wonder where the "trip to Southeast Asia" to select exotic fabrics is really taking them.
- The best thing about the last episode is that Jeffrey's design was a flat out copy of a Martin Margiela (sp? sorry) design from 2010 or 2011 and NONE of the judges--or the production staff--caught it.
It was avant garde all right and poorly made.
- Totally was, R130. The judges probably didn't know.
- Who knew I could detest Jeffrey even more? Blatantly ripping off another designer (whether the judges realized it or not - it doesn't reflect well on him), then copping an attitude about it? He is trash and he offends my eyes...get him out of there.
- That face and those tattoos are not aging well.
Or is it the camera and lighting?
- It's the molesters mustache. He's trying so hard not to be an asshole but he can't help it. I'm glad Michael Knight won the challenge.
- I miss Uber-Bitch Michael Kors.
I love to hear him rip the contestants a new one.
- Thanks for posting that, R131; R130 was right -- it couldn't possibly be coincidence. It's a knock off, plain and simple, and in an instance where all it had going for it would have been novelty.
- Jeffrey probably thought the hood took Margiela's work 'to the next level'.
- Is "the next level" necessarily upward?
- It could be lateral but it's for sure not previous.
- [quote] It all seems so bargain-bin, and the QVC accessory wall confirms it.
Considering the last season of Project Runway had freaking BELKS as their accessory wall and manufacturing partner I am not sure All-stars is doing any worse.
- I'm in the minority here - I've always liked Jeffrey, I think he's very talented, I never thought he was that much of a villain (only one instance and the lady half-deserved it), and I liked his avant guarde creation.
- R141, are you talking about the incident with Angela's mother? (Okay, I'm nerdy enough that I googled her name -- but not nerdy enough that I remembered it.) The mother's histrionics seemed very contrived at the time. I think it was basically sabotage. I think Jeffrey's a jerk, but I don't think that that was an example of bad behavior.
- Well, another show without much pizzazz. Christopher and Victor made the best dresses, and for once, the judges recognized that. Melissa deserved to go home.
But what I'd like is for the contestants to start sending a judge home each week, starting with excruciatingly flat Alyssa Milano. They don't seem to be able to dress her in a flattering way--and her hair styles are just weird. I swear Heidi is somewhere backstage making sure that Milano fails.
- Alyssa on Craig F. WTF is she wearing?
- Alyssa is not that terrible. Granted she's no Heidi but who is?
Melissa's dress was kind of boring but at least the fabric was nice. Unlike the shroud that Jeffrey made. Why do they keep giving his filthy excuse-making ass a pass? He's not that interesting.
I'm fine with Victor winning but would have been fine with either Christopher or Elena winning too. I do think this is a talented group this season.
- Berkus was certainly flirting with Palu, who only had eyes for the bartender. It was like The Rules of Attraction.
- This "Million Dollar Shoppers" show that comes on after PR is total shit.
- Palu's dress was pretty but a big nothing.
I hate Elena but loved her dress this week. It definitely should have won. I normally don't care for black or white dresses on the runway but it worked beautifully for this design.
I also loved Michael Knight's dress but it was just deemed safe.
But I'm rooting for Kortoe. Hope she gets it together soon.
- Having Anya the Cocksucker on as one of the judges last week was hilarious - whatever she was wearing got all bunched up and she looked almost naked when she crossed her legs. What a loser...her saying "...you can't teach taste..." made it even better!
And as written above Elena has terrible skin....the HD is very unkind to her.
- [quote] Can someone please tell me what right that no talent, doesn't know how to sew, blowjob whore has, judging this group of contestants??
My guess is that somebody has been giving Mr. Weinstein some killer blowjobs from here to kingdom come, and I guarantee that "somebody" isn't "the beautiful Georgina Chapman."
That said, the cocksucker will probably NEVER appear on PR All-Stars because... THE BITCH CAN'T SEW!
She would be eliminated on the first episode because the massive fraud of Anya Ayoung-Chee's win would be exposed right off the bat!
Now on to Jeffrey.
Why am I so turned on by him??? His side part hairstyle made me so attracted to him, and his porn star moustache is so sexy!! Am I wrong about this? FUCK!
Christopher should have won this challenge. That nude colored "rose" cocktail gown he made was sublime! Miss Mizrahi must hate him, because she was grasping at straws to find something not to like about that gown. It really did look like a million bucks.
My guess is that they were trying to punish Nate Berkus for being so presumptuous as to declare the winner before the judging. But I completely agreed with Nate. That gown was THE best, and that's why Alyssa opted to also wear that cocktail dress.
Victor's dress was nice, and was a strong second place, but it didn't even come close to Christopher's dress.
I knew Melissa would go home. Her dresses really DO all look alike. Korto's monstrosity was next in line to be auf'ed.
Jeffrey's was really not that bad, but I'm guessing that he had some negative carry over effect from the lamp shade he sent down the runway last week.
I find it hilarious how Mizrahi is totally intimidated by Jeffrey. Jeffrey really throws that bitch off his game, and he either has to fan himself or shut the fuck up, because Jeffrey can argue his way out of anything. I love it!
- What happened to Project Accessory?
- Was Alyssa wearing one of Bette Davis' old dresses last night? They even have the same body. When she announced that she would be wearing the winning look to an upcoming event, the designers were like, "Uh, okay."
Did you notice that Georgina is now demanding that she be referred to as the "GORGEOUS Georgina Chapman"? I guess "beautiful" wasn't enough.
- Sorry but how is it a prize that Alyssa wears your dress. Was it me or were the designers less than thrilled. "Christopher, I would also like to wear your dress.." Oh ...great.
And seriously once again, Jeffrey is saved? Sure Melissa threw down the same dress over and over but seriously that felt and diamond choker?? he needs to go.
- r151 they realized a show about making purses, shoes and bracelets was fucking boring.
- Are we really using "cocksucker" as an insult, here on DL? I don't think Anya is much of a designer, but I couldn't give a shit if she made a sex tape (or two, or three). What does that matter?
Jeffrey's dress looked cheap. Did anyone else catch him of accusing Korto of ripping off Mizrahi? Pot calling the kettle black much? And yes, R150, you are wrong for finding him sexy.
- There's an anti-Anya troll or two around here, and it gets real tedious real quick.
- She deserves all the anti-Anya trolls she gets.
[quote]This "Million Dollar Shoppers" show that comes on after PR is total shit.
So true, R147. It's The Anorexia Show. I'm tempted to start a thread on it just to see if anyone here knows those bitches. \t
- [quote] the beautiful Georgina Chapman
This really chaps my ass.
Who in their right might would possibly want to be identified as "the beautiful..." as their introduction?? That is SO narcissistic!
You have CFDA award winning designer Michael Kors, celebrity designer Isaac Mizrahi, Fashion Editor Nina Garcia... and the beautiful Georgina Chapman. How incredibly lame!
The fact that Georgina Chapman would even allow herself to be introduced as "the beautiful Georgina Chapman," speaks volumes about her - and not in a good way.
I wonder how she'll be introduced 20 years from now?
- I wonder how she'll be introduced 20 years from now?
The late Georgina Chapman.
- Haha... Alyssa Milano makes the worst dressed list this week.
- I admit I hate her being introduced that way as well but Marchesa shit is really good.
- It's like every "actress" introduced on late night talk is " The lovely and talented..."
- On the flip side, it looks like Alyssa has lost her baby weight.
- Melissa is a lot like Daniel in that she's going to do something 'fresh' and 'modern' and 'fashion forward', but then makes the same thing in a different shade and with a slightly different hemline.
- Who in the HELL put this outfit together for her? A blind person? WTF?
- I don't find Jeffrey sexy, but he's got this rock cock vibe to him that gives him edge. I had a friend, a vocalist in the punk/rock band, who actually was good looking and had this same kind of energy to him. He was straight but not narrow minded, and had maybe a bit of a twist to his straightness. Maybe slightly bisexual, who knows, and maybe that's what gives many of those enchanting rock dudes that extra oomph. Jeffrey has lot of that in him, and I understand completely if some people find him super hot.
One could see his dress this week to be nice rock/punk chic but also as something really bad made by a starting designer. The thing is I remember him being very good in his season and having some great designs, so he certainly can do better. That's why Melissa was booted, because she seems to be doing the same thing over and over again. With Jeffrey you can at least expect something different and wacky.
I agree with R155, all us dudes here are probably cocksuckers, so why use that word with Anya? You might hate her for being a one note designer, and not really deserving to win her season, but her making a sex tape and possibly leaking it is something different. I can tell for sure that I'd much rather spend a night at bar with Anya than with some stuck-up bitch calling her a cocksucker at Datalounge. You see, there's nothing wrong with being a cocksucker, but you seem to not understand it.
- I'll get excited about this show whenever Laura Bennett comes back. Love that red headed baby machine.
Micheal Knight seems to have really evolved as a designer. He has been producing some awesome stuff. Elena is crazy, but her stuff has been really cool.
- Michael Knight designed some great outfits during his season, too, but then delivered a show full of trashy hooker clothes during Fashion Week. I suspect he'll do the same thing again if he makes it to the finals.
- Well, Georgina's husband Harvey Weinstein is the exec. prod. of the show so I'm sure that's why she's a judge and has to be introduced as the beautiful...
- For those in the know, do movie stars and starlets flock to Marchesa, Georgina's brand, because the gowns are fabulous or to garner favor with Harvey?
- I always laughed at Heidi pronouncing the sponsor's name as Laurel Paris, but Milano may have her beat.
She renders the name of Marchesa's Parfum d'extase as par-FOOM day eggs-tazh.
- [quote]I agree with [R155], all us dudes here are probably cocksuckers, so why use that word with Anya?
R166, you are obviously not a "dude". You may be a cocksucker but you definitely have a vagina.
- R165 - Yikes. The top is not too bad, but the combination is horrid.
- The designers couldn't have been more excited when Alyssa said she was going to wear the winning look. NOT.
- Producer Harvey Weinstein is probably the one who insists on the "BEAUTIFUL Georgina Chapman" introduction.
He undoubtedly considers her to be a possession, and is using this little TV show to show off the glamorous thing he owns. Everyone has to play along.
- [quote][R166], you are obviously not a "dude". You may be a cocksucker but you definitely have a vagina.
Oh, let me check, yeah, I've still got a dick between my legs. And it's been there since I was born, and not just for a short visit. What on earth in my post made you think that I'm not a man? Have to say that English is not my first language, though, so there's probably always something not quite right with my use of it.
Back to topic: Alyssa Milano annoys the hell out of me as a host. Even more than I thought she would. The recent pics of her wearing pretty awful ensembles make her look completely clueless about fashion. Which in turn makes her seem pretty useless as a judge in PR.
- How the hellcan the "beautiful" Georgina Chapman sleep with such a beast as Harvey. The thought of him naked would make you gag.
- [quote]How the hellcan the "beautiful" Georgina Chapman sleep with such a beast as Harvey. The thought of him naked would make you gag.
Damn right you'll gag. Gimme an hour to take 2 sildenafil and I'll gag you with my beer can thick, mushroom headed three incher!
- Sorry, but I don't like Alyssa Milano in this show. Also, what the hell is Nate Burkus doing there as a guest judge? Also his decorative stuff in Target is complete crap as well. He has lousy style and taste.
- Complete crap? Lousy style and taste? How are those not consistent with the show?
- I get that Anya could not sew but what she is insulted most for is sucking cock which does seem odd on DL.
- Jesus Christ - the Anya 'cocksucker' routine is just a DL meme. Get the fuck over it, already. She's being insulted because she has shitty taste and can't sew and is, at best, only good at sucking the producer's cock, which is the ONLY way she could possibly have gotten on in the first place.
- Anya actually does have good taste, she just has shitty construction skills from her complete lack of experience.
The cocksucker thing was annoying, I remember back in her season it was one persistent poster being so loud about it.e
- Well, whatever - people need to drop the cocksucker stuff, already. It's old.
- In real life fashion designers do not cut and sew their own creations. It's a whole other set of skills. Those people are called drapers, cutters and stitchers.
Project Runway has really fucked up the public's perception of the design process.
While it's true that a young designer might have to make their own pieces because they can't afford to pay for that labor, most young designers begin their careers by working as design assistants at large companies, where they are part of the design process, not the construction process.
And where Anya is from, sewing labor is incredibly cheap. She would not need to know how to cut and sew in her own country.
- I fail to see the fashion genius of Jeffery Sebelia but I am not alone since he still has not found success as a designer.
- I hate this version of Runway. It's always wreaked of loserdom.
That said, I liked last year'a hostess: Carolyn Murphy. She was WAY better than Alyssa. And she looked good in clothes.
- Cocksucker not know how to sew!
Cocksucker have good taste level (but no gag reflex)
Cocksucker have shaved side of head so john no grab hair during head
Cocksucker not need construction skills, all cocksucker need is little rounded teefs
- I agree. Milano really annoys me as host of project runway all-stars. Popular celebrity or no, get a new host, please!
- If this show has already been filmed then it's too late for my suggestions, but Alyssa needs a more flattering wardrode and hair, and someone please get her a powder puff because she is way too shiny.
Don't the production people see this about her? She always looks like she is sweating (or glistening as OW said about RH) and it is distracting.
That said, she is getting more comfortable in her duties, and her reading of Jeffrey last week, whether scripted or not, showed some backbone.
- What would you suggest she wear R150
- I mean R190
- A paper bag over her head, r192.
- Maybe simpler things that are better tailored to her figure.
And I'd like to get a look at her back fat.
- Am I the only one who finds it extremely annoying that now more than ever before there is an excessive amount of time focused on each designer trashing and commenting on the other designer's work either in voiceover or taped confessionals? You never heard a peep out of half of these people in their past seasons and now all of a sudden they're all chatty Cathys.
Also, has Nate Berkus had work done on his face? Botox? Fillers?
- I know I'm a week behind, but Daniel being eliminated was great. He sucked during his own season and had no business returning. He was easily one of the worst 'designers' they ever had. The fact that he lost to the lamp from A Christmas Story says it all.
- They also seem to talk a lot about 'who' they've dressed, R195, as if that's supposed to indicate their level of success. And then they're all wasting time competing again.
- Alyssa Milano sucks!!! She has no class at all. No talent and no style. I think its pathetic the amount of soft-core porn Ms Milano has been on, on Skinamax (Cinemax). She seems to jump at the opportunity time and time again to take her fake tits out. She is is no way worthy to crown the new project runway all star!!
- Tell us what you really think R198
- I think I'm the only one who isn't annoyed by Milano. Is she Heidi? No. But she does her job just fine.
- Once again, a result that's TOTAL FUCKING BULLSHIT. They did that only as a way to keep from auf'ing Jeffrey.
- Is Jeffrey sucking Isaac's cock? Is that what's going on?
- I'm ok with Alyssa r200.
Figures they'd pick the black dress for the win in a challenge where 99% of the materials were primary colors. When in doubt, send down a black dress and make up a stupid inspirational story about it. "I was bullied...waah, waah." I hate the way they always make all gay people weak victims on these stupid shows.
- is anyone else as bored with this show as I am?
And I was hoping they would send all three home instead of keeping them. Ridiculous.
I find Jeffrey disturbing on so many levels.
- R203 Don't forget the host
- This is the second time Jeffrey has said he didn't know the design had to be wearable. Why do they not laugh him off the stage for saying that? That would be like a contestant on Top Chef saying they didn't know the food had to be edible.
- What the hell was the point of that? How is it possible that they couldn't pick someone to send home? You had one that was arts 'n' craftsy and falling apart and another that didn't fit and exposed the poor girl's hoo-ha. Stupid waste of an episode.
- Please tell me Jeffrey did not say he would be in top 3 during the cocktail challenge. Please
- This was not the week to keep everybody, not with some of the pathetic tatty messes on the runway! Last week would have been a better time, because everybody produced something that was at least wearable. This week, half the models found their dresses falling off during a 50-foot walk.
- What a waste of a show.
[quote] Once again, a result that's TOTAL FUCKING BULLSHIT. They did that only as a way to keep from auf'ing Jeffrey.
I actually think the producers did it to keep Korto or Michael, because one of them was surely out.
The judges REALLY seem to like Michael, so I think they did it for his sake.
[quote] This is the second time Jeffrey has said he didn't know the design had to be wearable. Why do they not laugh him off the stage for saying that?
Indeed. Instead, Mizrahi decides to pick on the gay guy who was bullied in school for being gay.
Something is really wrong with Isaac Mizrahi. Why is he so HATEFUL against other gay men?
[quote] This was not the week to keep everybody, not with some of the pathetic tatty messes on the runway!
To me, this absolutely is the week to keep everybody. There was obviously something wrong with the challenge, when so many designers are sending CRAP down the runway.
Some challenges are hits and some are misses, and this was definitely a MISS.
Glad nobody got sent home, but it was also a huge waste of time.
- Alyssa MIlano continues to be the most boring host ever. But the whole season has been boring. Last night's episode was a perfect example. It was an unconventional challenge that should have caused all kinds of drama. Instead, it caused all kinds of boredom, leading to the most boring ending ever. Who cared who left or who stayed? Apparently no one, because no one left. Maybe they're all stuck there for eternity, in the most boring show in a once exciting series.
- Alyssa's style is stilted and she has an air of (unearned) arrogance
Jeffrey should have gone since his outfit was unwearable and exposed his models pussy on the runway
again-what does making a dress out of loose leaf binders have to do with being a legit fashion designer (Hers some contrruction paper, glue and paper clips-but we dont want it to look like arts & crafts)
- I am so sick of Alyssa introducing the "gorgeous" Georgina Chapman. Does she really have to say it every week? I put it on mute everytime just so I don't have to hear it anymore.
So Jeffrey was in the bottom again and surprise, surprise he didn't go home. I know they won't be sending him home anytime soon no matter how horrible his designs are or how many times he's in the bottom.
I hope none of the 3 previous winners win again. I don't think they should've been back anyway. It would've been more interesting if they'd had all of the past runners up come back instead.
- I will wear the winning look to an upcoming event.
- Gabourey, the winning look will wear you.
- 1. We get it DL. Milano sucks.
2. This was a really bad challenge.
3. Jeffrey should have been gone weeks ago.
4. Gabby was quite charming. I like her.
- I agree, Michael would have gone home last night.
- But the challenge was stupid and the producers realized it when they saw the results.
Not always been a fan of Michael but he's done some great work so far this season. Glad they didn't et rid of him. Or Korto.
- Mychael deserved to go home, but the judges liked him so they kept everyone, becvause getting rid of Korto (the next one in line meant to go)instead of him would have seemed utterly unfair.
And it's not still time to get rid of past winners - obvious plants who are not meant to win but to make the others sweat - because they're still needed for added drama and angst. How else do you explain each of them being in the top three only once and cast in the middle or safe bottom the rest of the time? They're meant to stay until the cream of this crop (less winners) is established. Then we'll see them file out.
[quote]Something is really wrong with Isaac Mizrahi. Why is he so HATEFUL against other gay men?
You seem to have a very short memory. Mizrahi was the one who had multiple orgasms every time Oneball coughed up a hairball.
- Who the fuck wants to keep Jeffrey around? He's unpleasant, hard on the eyes and hasn't produced one decent outfit. What a joke.
I thought Isaac's comments about Christopher's story were very Datalounge-esque. If he hadn't said it, one of you cynical bitches would have.
So much for Elena and her "BFF." What was she on about, stolen inspiration? All I heard her say to Victor was to not use so many colors. It's not like she gave him a sketch and he copied it. And if she was so inspired, why did her dress look so similar to everything else she's made? Crazy-eyed loon.
- I completely disagree with those saying either Michael or Korto deserved to go home this week. Jeffrey sent his model out with her crotch hanging out. How many other times over the history of PR have designers been ripped to shreds for that? Sorry but if it'd been anybody else, they would've gotten the boot, but as usual they kiss Jeffrey's ass and he stays. I totally agree with R213 that it's obvious no matter how terrible his designs are, they will not get rid of him.
On a whole other note, I'm totally shocked at how well Elena is doing. She was so off her rocker and one-note during her previous season.
- I've yet to see anything truly avant garde from Elena. In her season all she did was those big boxy shoulders that were seen 30 years ago on the likes of Klaus Nomi and Grace Jones. Then she brags about dressing Lady Gaga, whose entire schtick is a pastiche of those artists who were truly avant garde in their day.
- [quote]I thought Isaac's comments about Christopher's story were very Datalounge-esque. If he hadn't said it, one of you cynical bitches would have.[/quote]
I don't disagree with Isaac. These people need to get over the fucking sob stories, already.
- I think Issac's point was don't tell me some sob story and expect me to give a fair judgement.
They seem to not want to get rid of Jeffrey. Three weeks of shitty dresses and they get rid of better designers until finally they just not get rid of anyone.
- New Tim Gunn hosted fashion reality series coming to Lifetime January 16.
"On Under The Gunn, Runway alumni Mondo Guerra, Anya Ayoung-Chee and Nick Verreos will be tasked with mentoring and managing a fashion empire with 15 new up-and-coming designers under their watch. Each mentor will have a team of designers they must manage, coach, cheerlead and, when necessary, knock down with tough love in order to lead them to runway success in front of the judges, designer Rachel Roy, celebrity stylist Jen Rade, and fashion correspondent Zanna Roberts Rassi. As designers are whittled down during the season, one designer and one mentor will be deemed the winners of Under The Gunn."
The Anya haters are going to have a field day with this, I'm sure!
- I like the concept of Tim Gunn's new show, but they should have hired Laura Bennett as one of the mentors instead of Anya.
- R226 I agree! Only found out recently that Laura's husband passed away. I really admire her talent, strength and sense of humor.
- Santino, Nick, and Andre were all hilarious together in their season and need to be brought back in some capacity to any show.
- The PR producers have always loved Nick V. for some inexplicable reason and yet have never brought him back as an All-Star. Every season he seems to be a judge or part of the panel who choose the contestants. I guess they realize he can't design or sew. I've never understood what they see in him.
- I truly believe there's some sort of contract with the three former winners stating they cannot be dumped until midway through the season. I also think Irina should have won last week, or at least been in the top three. She got robbed.
- Let's discuss how much of a useless, nasty bitch of a mentor Zanna whatshername is!
- The first unconventional challenge to not produce something cool and these were "All-Stars"! Not one good outfit. they couldn't kick everyone off so they compromised.
[quote] am so sick of Alyssa introducing the "gorgeous" Georgina Chapman. Does she really have to say it every week? I put it on mute everytime just so I don't have to hear it anymore.
Alyssa is an actress and the "gorgeous" Georgina Chapman is married to Harvey Weinstein. It's called sucking up, Dear.
- Half the time it's just a voice over being repeated in every other episode. It's just jarring and one of the low points in this series.
- And HERE'S the GORRRRGEOUS Georgina Chapman, founder of Marchesa yada, yada, yada...
And, oh yeah - we also have Issac Mizrahi.
- Alyssa looks good in her swimsuit.
- I agree about Zanna whatshername. Most of the time she waltzes in, seemingly drunk, just to tell the designers how wrong their choices are when it's too late for them to do much about it.
What are her credentials, anyway?
- Isaac is on QVC right now, and while speaking with Christopher on the phone, he let it slip that Christopher was "amazing the whole season."
So, I guess Christopher will be there for a while.
- R236, Zanna Roberts Rassi is the Senior Fashion Editor at [italic]Marie Claire[/italic]. Prior to that she was the Beauty and Style Editor at British [italic]Marie Claire[/italic]. On All Stars, Zanna replaces the intimidating Joanna Coles, who left [italic]Marie Claire[/italic] to helm [italic]Cosmopolitan[/italic].
- She does look good for 40.
- I'm sorry, Marie Claire is not a relevant magazine.
- Really? Marie Claire ranks among the top five women's beauty and fashion magazines in the world.
- [quote]Isaac is on QVC right now, and while speaking with Christopher on the phone, he let it slip that Christopher was "amazing the whole season."
[quote]So, I guess Christopher will be there for a while.
I saw that, too. Shanw tried to stop him, but it was already too late.
- This All-Star program is basically the low-class version of the real thing. Instead of Heidi we get the atrociously tacky Alyssa. Instead of Tim we get the moronic, possibly drunk Zanna. Instead of (from the old shows) Kors, we get the infantile, ass-kissing Posen. Instead of Nina Garcia Chinless Creative Director of Marie Claire Magazine we get the GORGEOUS Georgina Harvey Chapman.
Even the contestants seem low-rent -- they picked out the least classy designers from the past. The whole thing just kind of sucks.
- r243, don't you mean instead of Kors we get Mizrahi?
And in what way is he infantile and ass-kissing?
- What happened to tht bitch who wrote about how much she hated fat people in Marie Claire? Does she still have the job?
- Whoops R244, of course you're totally right. In my fit of righteous indignation I couldn't even bring myself to remember the miserable Miizrahi.
- Laura's husband died?? OMG they had like 6 kids!! Poor woman!
Nick V - he is good looking and give good gay so they use him for TV. If you watch his season he was never really that good. He was constantly in the bottom, only won one challenge i think, the barbie challenge. They constantly questioned his taste level.
Of that season I think Kara Janx is really the only one to really succeed in creating a brand for herself.
- I worked at Marie Claire for many years. Zanna Roberts is one of the most genuinely sweet people I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
- I loathe that damn thrift store black beaded jacket Chris Papoo wears in the opening. Looks like something your grandmother would wear on New Years'.
- R248 = chinless Nina Garcia
- [R-250] No, sorry, not her.
I'll reserve comment about anyone else I worked with at MC. Some are just as you'd suspect them to be, others would surprise you.
I did work with Tim Gunn on his MC column, and he is indeed a true gentleman.
And the funny thing is, for all the talk of the winner serving as a guest editor for a year, I never saw hide nor hair of any of them. Or heard from them, for that matter.
- R242, was that the Shaun I know with the permanent black raccoon eyes, tired, punk, fried, jagged haircut, frosted pink lips framing the painted chick-let teeth, wide hipped, ugly square toed boot wearing hostess that disgusts me but I can't stop looking at her, Shaun?
- Yes, that's the one, r252.
- Why would the host on QVC care what Isaac said about his own TV show?
- Are they going to replace her now that she's dead?
- I guess she's supposed to be Isaac's friend.
Maybe she was "worried" he'd get in trouble.
- [quote]Are they going to replace her now that she's dead?
Anna Nicole Smith has been approached.
- Like ma body?
- How come Nina Garcia Chinless Creative Director of Marie Claire Magazine is never offered the chance to host a show?
- LOL R252
- Boring show. Boring show. Boring show. These are supposed to be All Stars but only Christopher is doing good work week after week. At least Jeffrey finally stepped up and produced something interesting, although it wasn't all that good. And they never explained what he created for a shirt, since he said he didn't have time to design one and yet the model clearly had one on.
Is there something weird about the length of Jeffrey's neck? He looks more and more like a giraffe.
Oddly, when the GORGEOUS Georgina Chapman's name was mentioned, the not-gorgeous Alyssa MInt Milano did not say the GORGEOUS Georgina Chapman. Perhaps she's only gorgeous if you can see her.
- Nothing on that runway was reminiscent of the 1930s or Bonnie and Clyde. Especially Jeffrey's winner.
- R262 the strapless sequin gold gown with that leather jacket was wonderfully modern 30s.
Everything else stunk though. Just a bit off. These "all stars" are pathetic.
- I love Project Runway, but this show cannot my attention. Irina is still a bitch. Elena is still nuts. Jeffrey is gross. I don't care for Christopher, so there isn't even eye candy.
- R261 - Alyssa Mint Milano. LOL
- I like Irina. I think she is the brightest and most professional in the group. Her dress tonight was pretty. The jacket was overdone; she should have kept the details more low key and it would have been a winner.
Michael deserved to go home for his Devo jacket. It was just missing plastic sunglasses.
Viktor's coat looked like the model didn't finish putting it on. Really strange lapel.
Jeffrey's coat was awful. The fabric was 30's but that was it.
- Good critique r266.
- Anyone know the name of the guy who modeled Jeffy's. Coat? And if naked better
- didn't christopher bully one of his fellow contestants - i believe it was the older woman - his season?
- I'm with you, R266.
[quote] the strapless sequin gold gown with that leather jacket was wonderfully modern 30s
[quote] I like Irina. I think she is the brightest and most professional in the group. Her dress tonight was pretty.
Funny how I HATED Irina and her season. I think the concensus was that the LA season was the absolute worst ever.
I find it ironic that I now think that Irina is really the best designer. She's like a diamond in the rough, and so far, I've liked every one of her designs. She is really fantastic, and just typing that shocks the hell out of me!
Even more shocking... I hope she wins!
[quote] Michael deserved to go home for his Devo jacket.
100% deserved to go home. His whole look was Michael Jackson, circa 1984.
Michael never had good taste, but he's can make good clothing. I truly believe that you can't teach good taste, but perhaps if he spent a few years in Europe... Paris, Milan, Rome, etc., he might develop a better sensibility than he would in Atlanta or Miami.
His aesthetic is horrible. So trashy and slutty. But the challenges have proven that if given the right direction, he can create some fabulous outfits.
He deserved to go home, but I still think that he could be a great designer, and he's a nice person. So there.
Jeffrey gets hotter and hotter to me, with each passing episode. SUE ME! Elena was right. Jeffrey should create a men's line. I just bet he'd make a lot of money off of it.
Bitch fight between Miss Chris and Miss Viktor. Truth be told, I thought Viktor would go home because his outfit was truly the worst. However, I think his track record is what saved him.
I don't get Chris - at all.
Korto's men's jacket was hot. I want it!
Irina - black black black black black. Fuck, she bores the hell out of me.
I thought Seth Aaron's outfit was not bad.
This wasn't the most exciting episode, but the challenge was a good one, as opposed to last week.
- [quote] Irina - black black black black black. Fuck, she bores the hell out of me.
Sorry, I meant Elena. Those Russian names! Elena, Irina, Svetlana, Marina. Jeez!
- This was the perfect example of how designers creating black outfits for the runway got them totally ignored, albeit safe.
If Korto and Elena had made those outfits in colors, one of them would have certainly won the challenge.
As they were in black....totally forgettable!
- [quote]Jeffrey gets hotter and hotter to me, with each passing episode.
I'm with you. I know we're supposed to find him annoying or consider him this season's villain or something, but it's not working. He just has that cool manner I love in a man.
- Who is dressing Alyssa for this show? I can see all of the contestants smirking every time she walks out for the runway show.
(But Heidi's clothes weren't much better last season.)
Michael did deserve to go home for that Halloween costume he sent down the runway, but he is a nice guy. His new smile is fantastic---no more crooked toofus.
- Where was the gorgeous Georgina Chapman?
- Christopher was the one who was bullied. He almost became the Michael Costello of his season. It would be hard of him to have bullied anyone with Elena there but he also deserves Brownie points for saying that Elena and that other Russian guy who won the season sounded like Boris and Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle.
- I'm sorry but the hostess has to have the chops but also the body! Alyssa just does not look good in clothes even if she is handling the hosting part pretty well.
- Jeffrey was totally crushing on his male model. I think he even smacked him on the butt at one point. It's pretty obvious after last night's episode that he's either bi or bi-curious.
- Yes R277. Alyssa's legs were WAY too chunky for that short skirt last night.
- Are there any photos of Christopher out there without the Mohawk? I'm intrigued.
- Wow...I can't believe she's gone. That's crazy to me. Life is so fleeting.
- Alyssa's pronunciation of "PerFOOM Duh'Ekstoss" cracks me up every time.
- I liked the guest designer bitchslapping Stumpy Milano when she was complaining about the "choppiness" of the gown.
"Oh, for you of course, just the chiffon."
I continue to love Mizrahi. I have no idea why Austin Scarlett was introduced first. He may have been filling in but he is not married to Harvey.
I knew Michael was in trouble as soon as I saw the sparkly fabric. With his questionable taste level, he needs to stay away from that kind of shit but he loves it.
Tim Gunn's new show is worth watching because it's Tim Gunn. The inclusion of Blowjob Anya is off-putting but I'll give it a chance.
I don't get the "I find Jeffrey attractive" people. He's always been fug and he's getting more fug all the time.
- It seems to odd to see Stumpy Milano on that show. Most of the women seen are models or former models, or designers who have reduced themselves to the fashionista's size zero (it's the fashion industry badge of office).
So while I'm all for women in the public eye having a healthy weight, nobody on that show has a clue how to make her look, well, anything but stumpy. The minds of the behind-the-scenes costumers seem to be so far up the fashion industry's ass that they don't know how to dress anyone but a model.
- I like Alyssa's body, but it's not one for the runway.
- Michael is a total class act. I wish him nothing but success and happiness.
- Minty is so odd in her mannerisms. She's sort of spastic. Sometimes she has an accent that I can't place and other times she does not. Also she tries to speak the same way Heidi did, which is beyond strange. If she is going to host this train wreck she needs to relax and be herself, instead of trying too hard to play herself.
- Her best role was Eva Savelote.
- This was the second episode where Alyssa made some offhand comment that makes it sound like she's into some pretty kinky BDSM. Bondage, whips and boots. I do think her delivery improves a little bit week after week.
Irina is keeping her bitchiness well hidden this season, but I like her designs. Michael was a nice guy and easy on the eyes, but he can't stay away from bling and tacky fabrics to save his life.
The Jeffrey fans on here need to get their eyes examined.
- Where is Alyssa from?
- Brooklyn NY.
- I would have guessed California.
- (R282), did you notice on last week's show that it was clearly pre-recorded and dubbed in. It was so embarrassingly obvious.
- The 30s show was a complete bomb! Everything leaned more modern side than a balance between the modern and the 1930s. They needed to do their homework because everything was bad.
Mychael Knight seems like a nice guy,but his outfit was horrible. The poster on here who said it looked like 1980s Micheal Jackson nailed it. When he said that his aim was to make Clyde nouveau riche I was scratching my head by that statement. Bonnie and Clyde stole money ,but they didn't live a wealthy life style and their clothes were totally unglamorous. Their clothes were very back woods poor. BTW, they were young teens.
The dress that was chiffon and see through is a dress that they make today and it has been done many times over. In fact, some actress just a couple of weeks ago at some event, wore an extremely similar dress but it was in blue. I think the designer who made the blue top with a little bit of puff to the shoulders of the top came close to the 30s because those puffs on the shoulders were popular in the 30s. Also, the designer who had that strapless sequenced top and the beige chiffon skirt with it, that leans more 30s as well. The leather jacket, no, but the collar of the leather jacket is reminiscent of the 30s.
All of the men's clothes were a complete joke. Someone said on the show the coat that Jeffery did was more 20s was extremely clueless like Jeffery. Though it was a great coat, it was more modern.
Could some please hit Viktor over the head with that fan? He is so "on". He pulls that fan out a lot thinking he is so cleaver. I think Viktor is trying to act like Karl Lagerfeld who carries fans around a lot. Also, Viktor has been copying Mondo's style with his clothes. Good grief Viktor, get a life and express your own individual statement in self styling instead of stealing other designer's ideas.
So, Jeffery is straight right? Seth seems like he is bisexual, right?
BTW, Alyssa Milano's clothes look very everyday frau looking.
- Jeffrey is straight. Seth is straight happily married (as of his season) with kids.
Michael (I refuse to type stoooopid spelling of names) lives in Atlanta where the idea of rich has a whole other interpretation. I wouldn't recommend watching any ful episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta as it might indice seizures or coma, but watching the commercials would be informative enough. He is tremendously talented and if he moved to New York his "taste level" would change accordingly. As it is, his designs are informed by his environment and nouveau riche means gold fabric, gold leather, gold accessories, just like his finale collection.
Jeffrey is smart. He won his season mostly by playing the game smartly (his whole villaine persona was well calculated as was the menacing neck tattoo which he got right before they started filming his season, and is only the name of his son. This season he is playing another character who wears a hipster hat instead of a hoody. He can design and sew and does a lot better when he thinks rock and roll instead of red carpet (except for that Vivienne Westwood inspired yellow plaid dress which was genius).
I am not sure why I don't like Alyssa Milano. There is nothing offensive about her or her comments. I guess I just don;t like the delivery.
In other news - Bravo's Styled To Rock is so so much better than I expected.
"Styled to Rock is an American reality competition television series, executive produced by Barbadian recording artist Rihanna which focuses on fashion design. The contestants compete with each other to create the best outfit for one or more famous music acts every week. They are restricted in time and materials. Their designs are judged and the music act of the week chooses his favorite one. One designer is eliminated each week."
They don't play by conventional rules which is definitely fun to watch, like introducing two completely new designers mid show.
- R294 You are spot on regarding Victor and articulated my thoughts exactly. That damned fan! The way he dresses!
And I feel that Seth Aaron is a total douche now. He is always hamming it up in a way that is disrespectful to the other designers.
And what is with the long strand of pearls he wears? They can't get rid of him fast enough for me.
I think Christopher is beautiful, even in that spangly black jacket.
- [quote]Truth be told, I thought Viktor would go home because his outfit was truly the worst.
Interesting point, and I do not think for a second had Jeffrey made Michael's outfit that Viktor would still be around (Michael's outfit was bad, yes, but not much worse than Viktor's with those hideous fringes). Oddly enough, this is why I've come to the conclusion that the fix is in for Jeffrey.
Think about it: anyone else with talent has one bad week and they're auf'd, no exceptions. Jeffrey had two in a row and the first time they kick off the less-deserving person to save him and the second time, unable to justify eliminating the other two instead of Jeffrey, they pull this "everybody's safe" bullshit strictly as a last-minute way to save his ass, using the excuse that "this was such an unusual challenge" that they would give them all a break, despite the fact there have been many "unusual challenges" in the history of PR and they STILL sent someone home at the end of them. And does anyone seriously think if Michael or Korto had sent out a model in an outfit with her crotch hanging out that they would have hesitated even a second to get rid of them over Jeffrey? Please.
Now in the interest of fairness, I will say that Jeffrey did a fantastic job this week and I have no issue with his win for that coat (though my personal choice would have been Irina for that gorgeous dress she made), but I have to be honest and say this is what I feel the situation is, particularly given that these shows often decide who the winner will be far ahead of the end of the season (or maybe it's possible the poster who said former winners are guaranteed a number of episodes upfront was on to something).
Jeffrey is going to win.
- What B or C list actress would you choose to host the show?
- Rachel Bilson, or maybe one of the Olsen twins.
- Milano was okay for a while in the last episode when she seemed to be talking freely and spontaneously. I even liked her as a host during that time. Later she returned to her usual talking style which seems fake, like the way people talk to animals or children. Her clothes were horrible once again.
Jeffrey made a nice coat, but I didn't see 30's in it at all. Granted, I don't know fashion history that well, but to me with its box-like shape it looked more futuristic than from that era. All the clothes were pretty good this time and it's hard to say which was the best.
I liked Christopher's look quite a lot, and might have like Viktor's look with different lapels. I accidentally stumbled upon Viktor's blog while looking for pics of the lapels and there he's blaming Christopher for his downfall. He says that he spent too much time helping Christopher and in the same breath says that he takes full responsibility for his own look. Maybe he shouldn't have blamed Christopher at all then, huh? Viktor seems pretty shifty character, and that fucking fan makes him look pretentious as hell.
- Maybe Rachel Bilson, but not an Olsen twin.
Possibly Katherine Heigl.
- Gay icon Hollywood megastar actress SJP.
- Tyra Banks would be a fun host because she would take it way too seriously and claim she invented things.
- R302 - No, No, No.
- Debra Messing is loved by the people.
- Heigl? She's a fucking frump who is also a total bitch. Put down the pipe r301. I think SJP or Bilson would be great choices . Or Paulina Porizkova she was a hoot on ANTM.
- R308 - I think Heigl would be interesting. Plus, she has some modeling experience.
Paulina is a good choice.
- You know who the ideal hostess would be? SHARON STONE, THAT'S WHO!
Famous, glamorous, modeling experience, still looks great in clothes. Capable of bitching the hell out of a bad outfit or auff'd designer. And she's enough of a loose canon to be entertaining, and I'm sure she could use the world.
But I doubt Heidi would allow it. She wouldn't want another tall, glamorous, mature blonde goddess taking her place.
- I loved Iman in the Project Runway Canada. She certainly knew her fashion and didn't keep her mouth shut about negative stuff, but at the same time seemed quite sympathetic.
- Yes, r308!
- "...and I'm sure she could use the world."
WORK, I meant w-o-r-k!!!
- How about Beverly Johnson or Beth Stern...I know some people don't care for Beth, but she seems pleasant and harmless enough.
Viktor is trying way too hard.
- No Heigl unless she's there for Isaac to kill in the first episode.
Paulina Porizkova would be a good choice. They might also consider Kelly Lynch or Jennifer Tilly.
If they wanted to elevate the show on every level, they'd go with Eddie Izzard.
- "No Heigl unless she's there for Isaac to kill in the first episode." LOL!
I don't think Jennifer Tilly is a good choice.
- [quote]I don't think Jennifer Tilly is a good choice.
You're lucky you're an idiot!
- Iman was awesome in Canada and will save the show if she did the US version. She does not suffer fools easily.
- Viktor is a sweetie, if untalented, but obviously manipulated all too easily by the PR producers to do and say what they like to stir up controversy.
- May I suggest the sparkling Ann Jillian or the sassy Linda Dano as host?
- Iman absolutely made PR Canada. Mind you, there was some really good talent on the two seasons that aired. Iman, though, would be a great host for PR All-Stars.
- R316 is spot on Iman was hilarious and vicious!
- Iman wasn't vicious, she was just direct. She didn't coddle anyone, or suffer fools. If you deserved harsh criticism, she gave it. But if you were good, then she graciously acknowledged it. IMO, she'd be the perfect host. To the point, honest and fair.
- I don't get it. I'm really disappointed when she comes out for each show. Her fashion sense is terrible. Her clothes are ill-fitting and sloppy. And the hair... I hope they make a better choice next season...it's difficult to focus on the designers because of the horrible choice for a host. Not to be mean, but I'm so bugged by it that I needed to say it out loud.
- She doesn't dress or style herself, so what's up with production?
- Stumpy's just as bad, if not worse, when she does style herself.
- I like the top in R324
- Is there any possibility that the fix was not in for Mondo on the first All-Stars series? They owed him; it was as though the spin-off was conceived out of their guilt over the stupid choice of Gretchen. That being the case, should we assume that the subsequent All-Star seasons are completely based on talent?
Why would a previous season winner risk embarrassment by going on without a guarantee of at least late elimination, if not going to the finals? Once a reputation has been established on the show, why put it at risk without a guaranteed reward? That's why I do not expect to see Laura Bennett on an All-Stars series. (I'm reasonably confident that her widow's mite would allow her to hire a sitter -- although her youngest kid is only, what? Six?)
- What does Laura Bennett have to gain from being on All-Stars? Is she still trying to establish herself as a designer, or is she content to write and live on her inheritance?
Because believe me, she'd have a lot to lose. Any sole parent who leaves a huge brood of children for weeks is going to face some major drama, no matter how good the nanny is.
- I thought she died
- Her husband died. Unless you mean the nanny, who is theoretical and probably still alive.
- Alyssa Milano died.
- Well. Her career did, anyway.
- Maybe Alyssa Milano can find work replacing the deceased nanny.
- She's on Mistresses and Project Runway. Not too shabby.
- What is Laura Bennett doing on Mistresses?
- I know, R334, right?
- Wow, did Laura Bennett's husband really die?
I remember seeing him on the show when Tim Gunn did the home visits, and he seemed like a super cool guy. WTF happened?
Anyone know the story? I'd love to hear it.
I feel bad for Laura and all those kids. I'd go fucking insane.
- I think cancer, R336.
- Libra. I'm pretty sure.
- Wow. There was a show last night and no one cared.
This has got to be the dullest show PR has ever put on. The only interesting thing about last night's show was that Anthony Ryan had a long piece of black masking tape going down the middle of his head to his neck.
Other than that, there was nothing to talk about, think about, care about, except that little Mint Milano just gets more and more awkward.
- [quote]or the sassy Linda Dano as host?
- Anthony Ryan's cancer has returned R339, so I give him a pass on how he looked.
Honestly the fashion this season has been good, I guess the issue people have is there hasn't been enough crazy people and manufactured "drama". Sadly, I guess it proves why the producers drive for these things.
Glad Jeffrey got the boot. Though amusingly enough if you look at the animation of Marge modeling all the outfits she actually looks great in Jeffrey's and pretty meh in Irina's (though hers was the strongest actual fashion).
- Terrible idea for a challenge, or at least the judges made it terrible. The one designer who actually tried to design something that could translate into animated form, and who made something a Midwestern matron would actually wear, ended up on the chopping block.
- Stumpy Milano proves, again, that she looks terrible in everything. Is there something wrong with her body? Is she a cunt to wardrobe so they're deliberately sabotaging her every week? Not all stumpy women look as bad as Stumpy Milano. Can the Alterna hair stylists not do something with the girl?
As much as I dislike Jeffrey, that other guy - Mr. Six Dresses Ending With A Belted Piece of Fabric, should have gone home. If not for his dress then for those pants he was wearing and his bad hair.
Designing for Marge Simpson was a clever idea. Here's Marge in all the dresses and a picture of all the judges, Simpsons style:
- Good riddance to Jeffrey.
I was all prepared to hate Irina again this season, but she's matured quite a bit and is the only returning winner who seems to have grown as a designer. I don't know if she deserves to win a second time around, though. Korto has been burned twice before so I'm rooting for her.
- Alyssa is an attractive woman. She's short, and she's gotten voluptuous. That's a body type that's hard to dress.
- Yes, good riddance to Jeffrey. Why was Alyssa so kind to him when she was such a brittle cunt to all the other Auffees?
- Irina's dress was horrible. It did look like a baby doll nighty. I thought it was racist of whomever said Kato's dress looked like she was going to the 40/40 club or whatever he said.
I thought Elena should have won.
As to Alyssa. She is short, plain and simple the length of the dresses she wears cut her off and make her look squat. They need to be full length or shorter, and she should never wear ankle boots with a dress that length she ends up looking like a hobbit.
Who ever that guest judge was that looked like the girl from Awkward, she was terrible. She like everything everyone else hated and vice versa.
An lastly Anthony Ryan talking about anyone's taste level when he has a tape mohawk on his head is laughable.
- Anthony Ryan has now lost both balls to cancer.
- Are you saying that it doesn't take balls to wear masking tape instead of hair?
Do we have any confirmation that his cancer has returned? Granted, his face looked quite puffy, which could be the result of some treatment.....
- Alyssa looks like she is gaining weight again.
- Of COURSE, R350. Padma and Gail also gain weight during Top Chef. It's part of the job.
- 349, Anthony Ryan had recurrence of his testicular cancer and underwent chemotherapy last summer. Supposedly, in this instance, recurrence is rare, and his physician was surprised.
- R352, your repeating this information anonymously doesn't really constitute confirmation.
- R353, A few days ago, I did an Internet search and read an online article published September 2013 by a Baton Rouge newsletter. I believe Anthony Ryan lives in Baton Rouge. According to the article, he's overcome testicular cancer twice. The article reported he had undergone surgery and just completed chemotherapy. According to the article, Anthony Ryan tells people he's been neutered.
- I'm sorry. The article was published August 2013, not September 2013.
- Thank you, R354.
- I hated that Zanna walking in so somberly and schlumping around like she was at a fucking funeral. Cripes, they were designing for a cartoon lady and not even a normal cartoon lady. Marge looks like an alien. Lighten up, Zanna, you overly serious, too literal as usual, Brit.
- I know that short women (and men) can be tricky to dress. Good thing Milano has a team of professionals on a fashion show to help her.
There is no excuse for the way she is being styled.
- Right no excuse
- Lisa Robertson will be the guest judge tonight.
- Damn, my cable is having a problem w/the Lifetime channel while PR is on now. It's so choppy it's almost unwatchable.
- Announcing you're HIV+ on PR. Honey, it's been done...and more effectively.
- And Viktor (with a k) goes for the goal with an HIV admission! Will he make it?
Since when is not blabbering about your private life considered living a lie?
- R360 - Lisa is boring.
- Zanna was half-lit when she critiqued them, right?
- Had to be. You'd need to be half in the bag to even contemplate weinstein's balls. Allysa almost slippedinto her Brooklyn accent a few times tonight.
- Honestly, the fashion schools need to do a better job of training designers to design for different body types. When faced with a short, curvy client half of them went for a fucking mermaid silhouette, something that only looks good on tall girls!
Really, they were all at sea when asked to design for someone other than a model, and they're not the first.
- R367 - Definitively.
- Most god-awful group of dresses ever. Dull, drab, dreary. We have seen every single thing before.
Irina should not have gone home. Yes, her dress was more wedding than event, but it showed a spark of originality. It should have been Korto to go home; her dress was so ridiculously simple up top, a blind stroke victim could have done it.
Christopher's dress has been seen a dozen times at least on PR. I think it was the same dress Jeffry did on the first episode of this season. Close, at least.
If Elena had cleaned up her silhouette and stuck with a tube dress, she may have had something. The fabric treatment was kind of cool, but the piecing and resultant bulge at the hip looked weird.
Seth Aaron - "I'm back!" - no he is still lost.
HIV boy used his status for sympathy, which is so cheap. I am so sick of these people, and the producers, selling their sob stories on talent shows. But all the shows do this now. They extract whatever recent death, disease, or disablement they can come up with to draw in the Kleenex crowd. It's revolting.
- The HIV story came conviniently at the episode where he thought he was going to be sent home because the dress was 1. the worst color 2. poorly executed 3. did not photograph well. He knew that a sob story would save him, it did. For some reason Lifetime likes HIV stories. Maybe because they can pity the gays? Who knows. It's just been a card layed so it should have been ineffective, yet it worked.
- It was ridiculous that they auf'd Irina who has been doing great work most of the season and kept hopeless Viktor who hasn't had a single successful design yet. Irina's only mistake was making her gown in white.
Zanna looked a bit tipsy with one shirt tail tucked in and one out. And she gave useless advice to everyone. How did it help poor Viktor to tell him that green is never used as a cover girl color when he had no other fabric?
Isaac and the little Mohawk twink are about ready to get a room!
- [quote] It was ridiculous that they auf'd Irina who has been doing great work most of the season and kept hopeless Viktor who hasn't had a single successful design yet. Irina's only mistake was making her gown in white.
Absolutely. Even the other designers commented on it. Korto said that she thought Irina was "the one to beat."
Fuck the Weinsteins for getting rid of her.
I'm guessing that the former winners were only on the show to add a competitive element, and not to actually win.
Interesting that I couldn't stand Irina on her season, and thought it was the worst Project Runway season ever, yet now I think she's the best designer.
Everything she sent down the runway has been beautiful.
Irina was cheated.
Viktor's storyline was so contrived. He tried to copy Mondo's big "reveal," but instead when he told Seth and Elena about his condition, I almost felt like he was acting for the camera.
And I agree that Korto's dress only won because the other dresses sucked so bad.
This really is a horrible season.
- Korto won because her dress fit the assignment. Photograph well, Host needs to be able to stand, sit and move in it, and look red carpet.
Was it simple, yeah it was hell she threw it together in a few hours, but there is talent in knowing when your design is not working and she knew what she had would have gotten her out. Irina won last week for a giant baby doll nightie for god's sake. This was for QVC as well. The dress needed to look good on a size 2 and a size 22 and Korto's was the winner there too.
Irina's was bridal. and it ripped open on the runway. Bye!
- [quote]Irina's was bridal. and it ripped open on the runway.
And she blamed the model for that.
- haha yeah that was the best part...if I was the model I'd be like "bitch please this ripped three times while you were making it." Instead the poor model probably thought she was fat and killed herself.
- I don't usually read this thread before watching the latest episode, but I'm seriously hating this season and don't even care if I find out who got auf'd ahead of time. I'm a little surprised it was Irina and can't wait to see how bad all the designs were, but this show needs to get back to focusing on talent and not sob stories.
- Yeah Irina was cheated. Why? She's been perfectly reasonable and quiet all season. Just turning out one good design after another. This show isn't really Project Runway, it's Project Drama on the Runway. Irina added no drama. Just good clothes.
Poor Mint Milano just seems so lost. They barely let her do anything on the show, her lines now seem all scripted for her and the above posters are all spot on: they're dressing her badly too, giving her Heidi-like clothes that barely fit the little midget shape she has.
No wonder why Project Rungay didn't even bother to cover this show --it's really dreadful.
- An interesting comment by that actress who was called a legend but I've never heard of. She said you can't wear a wedding dress on the Red Carpet. Why? I've seen much worse and wedding dresses are looking more like ballgowns.
- They barely show Stumpy walking on the runway as she enters and exits. The little bit they show indicates she does not walk well in heels or she walks like a bulldog.
- 10 hours for this kind of an event dress was insulting.
- [quote] that actress who was called a legend but I've never heard of
Elisabeth Moss? She's on Mad Men and was the star of the miniseries Top Of The Lake.
- Korto won because her dress was the only one that could be mass-produced for QVC and would fit any body size. I doubt the average QVC buyer could wear a mermaid dress.
- 1. Kato's dress was the only one you can buy online. All the other dresses would need multiple fittings or at the very least you would need to tryit on before buying it. Thus it was the only one suited for online shopping.
2. There was never any chance that Irina was going to win. They are not going to let anyone win twice. Seth aaron will not win either, even if he makes it to the finale. It's Mohalk boy all the way and it was decided before the show even started.There was nothing wrong with her gown. It was beautiful. They have accepted garments that did not fit the brief before. They have accepted garments that were falling apart or glued on. Hers was clearly the best designed gown, but way too expensive and complicated for QVC.
3. Telling Fan Guy that green was a poor choice WAS helpful. There were many things he could have done They can use fabrics left over from previous weeks (remember they are given X amount of money to be used at their discretion all season). He could have manipulated the fabric to reduce the harshness or he could have dyed it or hand painted on it. There were many options that in previous years designers used and survived poor fabric choices.
4. The product placement this season is AWEFUL. It wasn't as bad in the first couple of episodes. But now it's nonstop and way annoying.
- "Telling Fan Guy that green was a poor choice WAS helpful"
I was actually drooling over his moss green fabric when he was working with it, in the workroom it looked incredibly lovey (and incredibly flattering to me, with my red hair and pasty skin). But on the runway, it looked like a weak olive green, the change in the lighting apparently made a big difference. Plus he made a gown that was ruined by all these ghastly seaweedy ruffles.
As for greens in general, a psychologist once told me that the human brain is drawn to the color green, because paying attention to anything green meant survival to our primitive ancestors. And it's still true that a beautiful bright green draws the eye, I don't know why the fashion industry is so against it.
- Green was the least of Viktor's problems.
- Is the gorgeous Georgia Chapman gone forever?
- Irina got screwed. Viktor's dress was a complete and total disaster in my opinion and he should have gone home.
And sorry to hear of his HIV diagnosis but I didn't really get his reason for revealing it (other than to gain the sympathy of the producers, if not the judges, who didn't hear it but were possibly informed later). Keeping your personal health status private is not "living a lie," so not sure why he felt the need to share his news with Elena and Seth Aaron under the guise of coming clean, but whatever.
- It seemed bizarre that Viktor would interrupt their already precious work time to make that confession, apropos of nothing. His persona this season is way too calculated and try-hard.
- I'd love to know how Irina went before Elena. Actually, I'd like to know in what universe Elena was even considered to be an all-star.
Nina Garcia is judging next week? That should be ummm.....interesting.
I do think Christopher is going to win but I wish it would be Koto. I think she's the most talented 1 left out of them.
- I agree, R389. Christopher is very talented but I would love to see Korto win as well.
- Yeah, R387 - I didn't get the 'living a lie' comment. Why is it a lie? Unless you told people you're not poz when you are. But really, it's no one's business, and it's not a lie.
- This is the 3rd season Korto has competed and I agree she deserves the win.
Besides being super talented with a unique and pretty consistent vision, she has never been a drama queen or a bitch or had a meltdown on the show. And she's had plenty of opportunities.
- We're supposed to feel sorry for someone who was stupid enough to have unprotected sex in the last 10 years despite all the knowledge we have of HIV transmission????????
Not feeling it. You're an idiot and should be ashamed of yourself for being such an idiot.
- Lord. I hope Sad Christopher doesn't win. He's such a downer to look at.
- I still want to know how "Korto" translates to "Kutto." And her dress was frumpy, with a half-arsed bodice.
Don't like her AT ALL. She might not emote, but she speaks in terms of entitlement.
Christopher makes beautiful clothes.
- No one wearing skinny jeans should win a fashion competition.
Viktor is a drama queen. He whole "I hate Christopher" after Christopher won and Viktor was in the bottom. "I helped him so much on that dress I didn't have time for mine." Funny when he sent it down the runway he was "very happy with my outfit.."
- Did someone say that Nina Garcia Chinless Creative Director for Marie Claire Magazine was going to judge next week?
Chinless she may be, but she still has a hell of a lot more class that Mint Milano.
- Viktor has made a lot of funny comments, and I like how he spells his name, but his "reveal" was contrived and staged.
Maybe he had heard Mondo was going to be there and wanted a parallel storyline.
- Yeah his whole reveal is most awkward thing I have ever seen on project runway, I literally wanted to change the channel because I was cringing.
- Yes the reveal thing was so staged. First of all, he doesn't have any better friends than people he knows from Project Runway? Not believable, and who the fuck would worry their friends would reject them because they have AIDS? What kind of "friends" would that be, you'd be better off without them.
I also thought he should've gone home for that hideous "mother pucker" dress, I can't believe he wasn't even in the bottom two. They just weren't going to send him home the same week as the "big reveal," I guess making an obvious play for sympathy worked.
Has there been discussion here about the new PR show that will debut in January? Tim Gunn is the main host, and it's going to be a competition between teams of designers lead by past winners like Mondo. Hey sounds good to me, I'm just addicted to the "who will be voted off the island next" thing, and no show does it better than PR and Ru's Drag Race.
- "No one wearing skinny jeans should win a fashion competition."
There's no accounting for taste.
- Anyone watch last night? About to watch on the DVR since I fell asleep. The 10 minutes I saw were crap. Christopher made an old lady gown, Viktor was his usual asshole self and Seth Aaron's glasses were ridiculous.
- And once again, they all proved they don't have a clue how to design for non-model body types.
Especially that poor shortie girl, who was given a huge jacket with a massive peplum. The poor thing looked like a toilet paper cozy.
- Well Korto for the win unfortunately. Her white pant suit was boring and we've seen it before. The military dress was beautiful and I love how Christopher gave it right back to Bitchy Nina. She was not pleased.
- Korto stole her look from the girl who won during her season, Leanne. Remember she did all those fabric folds based on the ocean or water- whatever it was.
- If Viktor hadn't made the jacket, Christopher would have been eliminated.
- Did anyone notice Alyssa in those shorts and ankle boots? Her legs looked like stumps and the she had the NERVE to tell Korto "I don't like that shoe it cuts her off and makes her look sqaut" LOL Umm honey have you seen you??
Victor had to go, he put a jacket over everything..
I loved that Christopher gave it right back to Nina...she was not pleased..but then neither was he...I think for once she was out cunted.
- Yes, r405 I was thinking the same thing about Korto stealing her look with the folds from Leanne. Almost all of Leanne's looks in the finale were with those folds that were supposed to look like waves or whatever.
I loved when Christopher gave it right back to Nina. The inner bitch came out in him for sure. lol
Why the hell is Elena still there? I cannot stand her. And as always I hated her design. If she ends up winning, (which I highly doubt) I'll throw myself off a cliff.
I say it's either Korto or Christopher for the win.

Although I do think that it's unlikely that Elena will win, I'd like to work out some way of verifying this response in the event that it happens.
- Ha Ha......I of course didn't mean it literally, r409. But I will be pissed if she wins. But like I said, highly doubtful. I'm shocked she even made it this far.
- I guess Georgina Chapman didn't feel like Alyssa was emphasizing her gorgeousness enough so she bailed on the show.
The other judges sure gave Nina the cold shoulder. Isaac, Christian and the Calvin Klein guy disagreed with everything Nina said and liked that Christopher stood up to her. The look Nina gave Isaac was priceless.
- I agreed with Nina overall in the critiques
Christopher didn't even use the color from Pantone and that lace was totally old lady, looked cheap and was hideous. They are grooming him to win no matter what like Mondo. No one did a great job on this one. Seth Aaron is annoying.
Alyssa's outfits were especially frightening. Nina looked good.
- We all hate Chinless Nina Garcia, but I swear, it's like Orange Kors. They really know what they're talking about. I also thought Soriono was great. And I guess I'm in the minority. I LOVED Korto's outfit.
- I can't say I loved Korto's outfit when the pant length was odd.
- Those fashion bloggers were all tacky and have no business blogging about fashion.
- If my hair isn't doing what I'd like it to do I'll roll it up into a bun.
- I hated Viktor's dress, it reminded me of a spider. All black and then the triangular pattern on the bodice was black widow like, and also reminds me of the underside of a thorax of a spider, where all the legs connect, creepy. I thought he should've gone home last week too, so good riddance.
They were too hard on Christopher, but his wasn't that great either, a boring week for sure.
- [quote]Especially that poor shortie girl, who was given a huge jacket with a massive peplum. The poor thing looked like a toilet paper cozy.
I'm sure she's been teased about her massive peplum all her life.
- Viktor was aufed -- who saw that coming??? Of course, I'm being facetious. The editing on last night's episode telegraphed the results from the get-go. What with Viktor twice lamenting being on the bottom, and Elena saying she wanted Viktor to make it to finals with her, you just knew he was done for.

No, we don't all hate her.
We do hate your stupid "Chinless" joke, however. It's not funny. It was never funny.
