Project Runway Season 11 - Teams Edition

Watch 16 hopefuls try to scratch, claw and hiss their way to the top!

by Anonymousreply 30903/15/2013

I'll give it a chance, but I'm not sure I like the idea of teams. I get that they have to shake up the format a bit, but I'm fine with how it was.

by Anonymousreply 101/24/2013

I felt the same way, R1, but so far it's not so bad.

I wonder, once the season is half over and so many people are gone, if they will drop the team thing anyway and let everyone design on their own going towards the finale.

by Anonymousreply 201/24/2013

I'm hooked for life, I'll be watching until it gets cancelled. I'm bet there's always going to be a runway competition show on some network.

Does anyone else have the soundtrack? It came out a long time ago, 1st or 2nd season, but they're still using the same themes, some are a bit altered though. It's mostly dance music but not the type you'd actually dance to in a club. I like it quite a lot.

by Anonymousreply 301/24/2013

Yes R2, it's ok - I just need to get used to the format a bit. You might be right about them eliminating the team thing later in the season. The designs seem to be a little better than the All-Stars, but maybe I have bad taste!

R3, I didn't realize they had a special soundtrack for the show, I just thought it was standard incidental backing music.

That blue sheer "jacket" is hilarious. I can't believe she had the nerve to put that out on the runway.

A decent start to the season. Zach Posen needs to relax a little, be willing to be bitchy. Nina Garcia Fashion Director of Marie Claire Magazine seems to be losing the battle with her chin and neck. Heidi as always looked and sounded great. All in all, it looks like there are actually some talented designers this season, even if the winner seems to think curling his nose hair over his lip is a fashionable look.

Every competitive reality show feels the need to have the contestants speak to the camera and tell how competitive they are, how they hate to lose, how they're not here to make friends, how this is their dream, this is their shot, I'm doing this for my mother, father, grandmother, etc.

I guess I watch too many of these shows cause I'm sick of these obligatory "ego stroke" segments. I've watched at least 4-5 in the last week: Project Runway, Face-Off, Top Chef, Bobby's Dinner Battle, The Taste, on and on. They all have the same story; it gets redundant.

That's what I don't get. Did she wheel out somebody else's designs during the audition? If you're going to boast to millions of viewers that you're going to win so everybody might as well just go home, then you had better have the skills to back up that oversized ego.

Exactly. At this point dear Tim is just trying to convince himself that he's doing something worthwhile with his life.

I would also ask how did the bitch who got aufed get through her audition? I can only guess that someone else must have, at least, draped, cut and sewed the designs she auditioned with.

And the middle aged lady! Is this character to be reworked with each season? Why must they torture these Peach-like women when they're really just there to be made fun of? Last season's middle ager even escaped without notice in the middle of the night.

I don't keep up with women's fashion so I'm just floored by the love for [italic]frankendresses[/italic] -- those assymetrical, uneven, colorblocked monstrosities that look like they were salvaged from several disparate dresses and stitched into one. Two or more designers last night sent these types of dresses down the runway, and the judges seemed to like them. I just don't get it.

The gal who went home first was a spoiled brat. She was too young and immature to be on the show. And she was shamelessly deluded, insisting that she didn't deserve to go home.

It should have been obvious to her that with the crap she sent down the runway, there is no way the judges could send home anyone but her.

The guy who won the first competition (with the long mustache) is going to win. He has great energy, great style & precision, and he has the maturity to work well in teams all season. I see no one who can beat him.

The hottest PR contestant was Keith the gay Mormon from Salt Lake City. He even won a challenge but didn't get half way to the finale.

Also Wesley of the skinny shorts was cute. He might have been the same season as Keith and fell in love with upthread's Daniel of the same season. Neither lasted very long either. Not sure if Dan and Wes are still together.

This was all around 2007/2008

R60, is Keith the one who got booted off the show for doing something against the rules?

There was another guy, very talented but he made a bad dress and got kicked off in the second or third show of his season. His name was Malo, Mako, or something like that (from France, I think?). Anyway, he was hot, too.

Wasn't the booted-off girl a graduate of one of the fashion design schools? I thought they learned to sew there.

The mustachioed guy who won--does anyone else think his head is abnormally large?--he is self-taught which I thought was code for early loser but clearly he knows his stuff.

by Anonymousreply 6201/27/2013

No, Keith just got booted off for lame design, not cheating. He was very soft-spoken and sweet, kind of stoned-out vibe. Big guy with lovely arms that were often seen in sleeveless shirts. Perfect boyfriend material.

The one who was booted off for cheating was sort of sleazy-sexy. He was caught with having some kind of pattern-making research in his bedroom or something like that. Can't remember his name.

Not true. He was the short, aggressive Mormon who frightened the other contestants. Some of them later said he was given to violent rages. This was the same season that had Wesley, Korto, and Kenley, if I'm not mistaken.

by Anonymousreply 8601/31/2013

This team thing is already breaking down. Boring. They shouldn't have kept the same teams. The result was too predictable. The fun of PR is watching the individuals begin to develop as personalities. That's kind of missing here, there's too much emphasis on how they work with each other, and worse, how they work with the same each others each time. Really turning out to be a bad idea.

Sad Zac Posen has got to find a personality or he should be auffed himself. He's not funny, bitchy, or interesting. He's just cute. Kors already proved that being cute isn't necessary. I actually miss him. He was good. Nina Garcia Fashion Director of Marie Claire Magazine has been a total zero so far. Not mean. Not nice. Not insightful. Not stupid. Just not. Nothing but not. Heidi and Tim are the same as ever, although it seemed wrong that Tim convinced that nice strange looking boy to drop the denim jeans and go with the kilt idea, which the judges hated. Susan Sarandon you have to admire for not having much work done and allowing herself to age so poorly.

The best thing on the show was that blonde model. Thank God Isaac Misery wasn't a judge. He would have been on top of that as fast as you can say The Gorgeous Georgina Chapman.

This team shit has got to go. There are some good designers on the losing team who at some points have had better designs than the winning ones on the winning team. I thought the look that won was really mundane in comparison to the two winning looks on the males especially the one by the quiet guy from Providence who I believe teaches at RISD. In fact all the outfits designed for the males were better than any of the ones for the female models. I loved the kilt look. It may not have worked within the context of the challenge but it was fashion and it looked great on the model. You would think from the reaction of the judges that there was something vulgar and at the same time unmasculine about the kilt. Maybe it was the model but that look may have been many things but unmasculine was not one of them. It was awesome. Also was it me or did Spin look like a rec-room in the basement of an Elks Lodge? Wicked ugly. Blow up these teams and let's get back to individual designs and competitions.

I was getting tired of Kors as a judge. He seemed to spend his time thinking of witty quips rather than judging the clothes. But Posen is just blah. No personality. It's like he's too intimidated to open his mouth.

The producers are tweaking the formula to keep the show fresh but they won't make the one change that viewers want the most: more time to do the challenges.

by Anonymousreply 12902/05/2013

This team thing has pretty much exposed what's weak about PR this season -- desperately trying to make the show seem fresh and new. It isn't. If they concentrated on their core strengths -- highlighting interesting personalities and showcasing good designers, the program would be working. But the team gimmick is quite poor, with the same team losing over and over. It just seems pathetic, not interesting at all.

Another problem is that whether or not you likzd Michael Kors, he was always smart, funny, and quick to spot weaknesses and strengths, sometimes before they were obvious to anyone else. Poor Sad Zac Posen brings nothing to the show. He's not quick, funny, or bright --and this week, wearing Bozo the Clown's leftover red suit, he didn't even look cute. The guys needs to be auffed immediately. The final problem with the show is Nina Garcia Fashion Director of Marie Claire Magazine's neck. Something terrible has happened down there. Either she's gotten too much work done above it, and the contrast hurts the eyes, or she's been playing too many games of pass the apple under the chin with her children, or editors, or whoever. She needs to buy some crisp and fashionable turtlenecks.

Kristen Davis was actually a pretty good judge. Heidi was shamelessly promotional but given those excruciatingly boring models who hosted the All Star challenges, she's still the best. And it was good to see the Funeral Director go. She had terrible taste in fabrics and she couldn't sew well. But poor Ben. What's to become of him? He's losing everything now, including, oddly, his accent.

The winning design wasn't all that good. It'll change considerably before Heidi ever wears it. And Kate, the winner, is something of a 23 year old monster. She practically begged for the win on stage. Tears. Pathos. Bridesmaid's respect. Everything she could throw at the judges, she threw. And now, she says, now that she's clearly The Best, she will never listen to anyone else again.

I don't think I've ever heard the word shantung before - not that I am well versed in fabric. But maybe I understand why nobody uses it on Project Runway. That dress looked trashy.

I kind of wish Patricia's leather mesh thing was the second winner instead of Jackalope Antler Necklace's uninspiring dress.

Why was Benjamin having such a rough time? I know he said he was letting personal struggles work on his mind, but he accomplished the creative part and came up with the idea for his dress right away. From his drawing it looked like a great idea and if he could have just worked, he would have produced something fantastic. This week he didn't even waste any energy with telling his teammates (especially Cindy) what to do. I just didn't understand.

For sure Ol' Girl had to go (2 weeks ago actually). But I was surprised with the nice things she had to say when the group was saying goodbye and so now I feel a little bad about her leaving. But still, she was way out of her element.

Benjamin's dress was thee worst design I had ever seen! Cindy's dress was just awful ,but not hideous to the extent like Benjamin's dress! I think this is pure shit that Cindy went home and Benjamin as allowed to stay! I truly believe 150% it was because Cindy was 59 years old ,and Benjamin is younger. That is the only discrimination I can think of that went on here because there seems like there was some behind the scenes bias going!So far this show sucks!

BTW, who the hell think these actress are acting like experts on design and high fashion? They dress sloppy just wearing jeans and a tee-shirt or blouse 99% of the time ,and 1% of the time they dress up for a couple of award shows, which the haute couture clothes are lent to them and they are consulted what to wear, by fashion advisers!

I agree 1,000,000 percent!!! And Nina also agreed.

There was absolutely ZERO justification to send home the older lady, when that Aussie's dress was literally the WORST thing I have ever seen go down the runway. THE WORST!

I guess one of the Weinsteins of Monsters, Inc., decided that it was better to keep the young guy than the old lady. Fucking assholes. Anyone with eyes could see that the Aussie guy's dress was literally tied together.


This is exactly why the show had no credibility last seaon. They keep the undeserving and they auf the talent.

I've watched since the 1st season and I have to say, I don't like this season with team challenges. Only because it's not a fair competition.

There were 2 guys on the winning team whose designs they didn't like. Now if they hadn't been on the winning team, 1 of them might've gone home. Same with the team that keeps losing. There are some on that team that are better designers than the others. Yet they're in the bottom because the team as a whole was in the bottom. I hope next season if there is a next season, that they go back to judging them individually.

R140, there have only been three challenges and Cindy was in the bottom in all three.

Yes, Benjamin sent down a trainwreck of a dress, but Cindy had to go. Her fabric selections have been downright awful and her designs uninspired and run-of-the-mill. The judges obviously saw that, though she had the dressmaking skills, her creativity was limited and her taste level was questionable. I mean really, out of all the fabric selections at Mood, she chose the pink taffeta and the iridescent pink shantung! Cheap '80s prom dress fabrics! And then she made that hoochie dress thinking that that would class up Heidi's perfume ad/press tour. Benjamin's failure of a dress, at least, showed some design concept, Cindy on the other hand, simply cut out cookie-cutter patterns, sewed them together, and voilà -- a dress!

Menswear is apparently so vastly different in terms of construction that it is a seperate track in fashion school like FIT, at least that's what one of my co-workers said and she's a part time student there. That would explain why the designers almost always blanch and shriek "I don't do menswear!!!" A few seasons back the PR contestants had to dress an up and coming male rock group and the results were disastrous, not just construction but also fabric choices, styling, and just the design concepts themselves. Embarrassing to watch.

Benjamin won over Cindy because he brings more drama. If she had brought half the bitchery that Bert brought on his season they would have found a reason to keep her around longer. Benjamin has already proven himself to be an overconfident brat and last night he showed his potential for train wreck breakdown. Those are valuable assets to a reality show riding on fumes of actual skill and talent.

And his design though horribly executed had a little bit more to it than hers.

Well that was odd. A bunch of designers who so far really hadn't shown much talent, except Daniel and Runs-WIth-Crazy-Eyed-Wolves Patricia, gave one of the best shows in recent memory. Beautiful dresses, tasteful styling, imaginative looks. The poor Dream Team's look was wonderful. The odd thing is that Stanley was the one who came up with concept and unified the team, but as always Benjamin did all the talking and acted as though it was his doing. The two winning looks were totally terrific -- both of them deserved to win. The worst look belonged to Kate, who is kind of a nasty piece of work. Full of herself. Not that talented. Her dress was worse than Joe's, but he was a marked man, a designer uninterested in adhering to a woman's form. Not what the judges want to hear.

The judges were, as always, exactly as always. Sad Zac Posen continues to be empty, bereft of thoughts, mildly soporific. NIna Garcia Fashion Director of Marie Claire Magazine has been unduly pleasant this season--again, perhaps because all her energy is being devoted to trying to keep her chin from collapsing into her neck. The blogger chick was very good but they gave her little airtime so that the Face of Plastic Surgery could show what a million dollars worth of Botox and anesthesia can do to cheeks and eyes. She was, surprisingly, a good judge, and Sad Zac could learn from her balance of wit and insight. Heidi and Tim were, as usual, Heidi and Tim.

It looks like next week is going to be High Drama. Still don't like the team concept. It's awkward, false, and was clearly conceived as a way to differentiate this season from the others (Remember that team season? It sucked...) At least the Dream Team won this week. Again, Stanley deserved much more credit than he got.

This was by far, the best designed challenge I have ever seen on Project Runway.

I was absolutely blown away by the creativity and just - skill - shown by the designers. With the exception of the first design that came down the runway, all of the dresses had me smiling.

The winning team deserved to win, although I would have given it to the black girl who made one of the cutest dresses I've ever seen - and out of flowers and hardware supplies, no less!!

I think that this group of designers are doing so well because they were chosen by former contestants, or in other words, they are DESIGNERS kind of designers.

I also appreciate the fact that there's less focus on drama, and more on cooperation, teamwork, and camaraderie.

And who doesn't love Bette Midler? The designers went crazy for her (which was surprising), but she really was a good judge.

Now, was it just me or did Bette seem to be a little rude? When that one designer designed her dress like the 50s, she described her dress like a leading lady would have worn in one of Alfred Hitchcock's movies. I understood what the girl was trying to convey because Grace Kelly had that full petticoat dress in Rear Window, and Kim Novak wore a full dress in Vertigo. Also, aside from Alfred Hitchcock's movies, that dress reminded me of something Audrey Hepburn similarly wore in the 50s film, Funny Face. It was a very full petticoat dress that had a floral design.BTW, it was recently auctioned off. However, Bette made a funny face like she was thinking, huh? please!

Good on Stanley for reminding his new team from the get go that they needed to have a cohesive collection and for suggesting vintage Dior. That helped his team stay focused. The other team was all over the map, and I don't understand why no one bothered to ask "Hmmm, what's our unifying theme?" until after they had already bought their materials.

What the heck is wrong with Amanda ("I don't like flowers")? Who doesn't love flowers? This was an opportunity to go crazy with colors and patterns and textiles, and yet she chose green moss! She gets a FAIL for lack of creativity.

this is a truly awful season. the team concept is a complete disaster. in addition to being absurdly and obviously unfair, it makes for bad viewing because the designers are so obviously frustrated that their creativity is stunted in favor of incorporating other peoples' ideas. it also forces them to have input into garments they would rather not care about.

without a doubt, this season is the worst ever, and a total failure.

as for zac, i like him well enough. he is cute and knowledgeable and likeable, but on the dull side for sure. still, i am glad he isn't just trying to emulate kors and dream up bitchy comments for their own sake.

I wholeheartedly disagree. I think that the quality level has gone up BECAUSE they are on teams.

The fashion industry is ALL ABOUT working with people, and the show should have been set up this way from the beginning.

I love how the teams bounce ideas off one another, and help each other finish their garments, and I mostly love the whole "brainstorming" element on the teams.

When Tim questioned team Keepin It Real about their cohesiveness and theme, the team element quickly came into play and they came up with the theme on the fly, by simply throwing out ideas. That's what fashion is about.

It was also cool that two people can work on one garment, because that black Madonna 80's dress was really fabulous, and it could only have been done by two designers, given the amount of detail.

This season, the designers seem really supportive of each other, and really seem to KNOW each other better than in past seasons, because they are forced to work together, or the team won't win. Hence, the quality goes up.

This was a great idea. Period.

I agree, this was one of the best runways ever, and consistently so when it came to the Dream Team. Very smart to base their looks on Dior. Layana's (sic?) was amazing.

by Anonymousreply 21002/15/2013

When Joe was auf weidersein'ed, I was struck by their reaction to an actual avant garde designer, given that they will actually have one week's competition revolve around an avant garde design challenge and then they will critique the results as if they recognized and valued avant garde fashion. The whole panel couldn't be more middle of the road and happily plebeian.

by Anonymousreply 21102/15/2013

I agree with you R199. I think Michelle is very bitchy,and she was so rude to Patricia who seems like a nice person. Besides, Michelle never worked with Patricia before so what was her problem?

BTW, Michelle's hair and clothes look very retro 80s New Wave.

It was really funny when Amanda's team chose her design was the major issue and they felt badly for pointing that out to the judges, and she said it was OK. However, when she waited in the waiting room there after, she blew up saying, liars!LOL! Amanda seems like a jerk.

Also, Matthew is handsome and he doesn't act all that fem either. I bet he is a bottom though. And I can't stand Richard! He seems like such a queen and the type of queen that can get pissed off easily.

I'm really surprised by Layana's work because she acts like a young naive scatterbrain ,and yet she designs extremely well.

Daniel's clothes are always amazing,but it looks like he is aspiring to look like Salvador Dali with that mustache.

That was the best episode since... years. And finally the team format made sense: a cohesive collection from hardware and flowers. I liked every design on the winning team--that's never happened before.

It was Joseph's turn to go--Amanda will be auffed in the next week or two--but the criticism of his dress (and saving Amanda over him) was ridiculous.

Also no one has mentioned the most *crucial* change in this episode: they had TWO days to make their garments.

What happens to a design show when you give an interesting (if not new) challenge, AND enough money and enough time to execute the challenge? You get results! I really hope PR is learning from past mistakes. Yes there is drama, but thank goodness it is mostly about design issues and how to resolve them. There was a LOT of that and it made the episode more interesting. The drama of throwing someone under the bus? That's too predictable -- Who do you think should be the one to go? You know that's asked only to stir up shit. They let an interesting designer go which is too bad. He was interesting in an innovative way and not in the attention getting narcissistic way of people like the tanorexic Blayne Welsh of season 5 or the fake Suede.

Bette Midler - I was a huge fan until I found out that she is against gay marriage and feels that her days of performing in the baths are insignificant. She bored me now, even as a judge.

Posen - not enough personality to carry a TV show.

Nina - is not as mean because the designs have not been as disastrous as in previous seasons. The bar was lowered so much and so fast that this, to her, is refreshing and should be encouraged.

Heidi - seems to be trying really hard. I keep thinking of Anne Hathaway at the Oscars trying to carry the whole load because ... well, she HAD to.

Tim and Heidi need to stop with all the stupid kiss kiss.

Tim is better this year in his discussion - or rather the editing allows us to see more of the discussions so we are not left with just Tim raising eye brows going humf Make it work.

There is a chance that I may even get invested enough in the show this season to care about who wins. Too early to know for sure.

R205 - high fashion is not only about a woman's body. One of the hottest designers, Rei Kawakubo, whose jackets caught the design world on fire and do nothing to "compliment a woman's body." She would have flunked PR, but you can see her jackets everywhere on the streets of Ny and Paris.

And my last point about Joe: This is from Thom Browne's collection in the NY 2013 Fashion Week.

Joe was definitely more in line with what is going on in the fashion world than the moss dress.

How the hell did Patricia the Native American lady get by this week without criticism of her Rose Bowl Parade Flower Barge monstrosity? It wasn't even that good, it didn't even look like a garment, more like a sad old prop that would be hung over an old Chevrolet on a high school football field.

Even on this thread it's barely been mentioned and it was one of the ugliest creations to ever march down that runway in PR history.

The thing that I find interesting about this show is that even though it's zeigeisty moment has passed it still manages to hold my attention from season to season. There have been some draggy years (the LA season was non-existent)but all in all when I see it in my DVR I anticipate watching it. I have given up on so many other shows that it's amzing that this one holds up for me. I am also glad that they kept Daniel and got rid of Mat. Daniel seems like the sweetest (if a tad creepy) and more talented of the contestants. Mat just looked like he needed a line to snort. Also fucking slap that bitch Michelle.

Two weeks in a row now Patricia has made something so bizarre that I was sure she'd be the loser both times. The week I really wanted to hear the judges ask her about that thing she sent out, but she was in the middle. Damn!

It was so much more unsightly than what that white boy made.

Jackalope Necklace really trashed up what could have been a pretty dress. Ripping up that hem made it look like the model had been dragged through the street.

Miranda Lambert was a real sweetheart and seemed like she wanted to be very helpful in her comments to the designers.

I didn't think Daniel's dress was [italic]that[/italic] bad, (compared to Patricia's bizarre design at least), but Nina was merciless with her critique.

[quote] Two weeks in a row now Patricia has made something so bizarre that I was sure she'd be the loser both times.

I love Patricia's designs BECAUSE they're so bizarre. I think the judges call her work "Native American chic." She has a very specific aesthetic, and you either love it or hate it. I love it.

[quote] I didn't think Daniel's dress was that bad

Oh yes it was. That top looks like scrunched up trash bags, the fringes looked cheap and shredded, and like Nina said, the seam in the middle was HORRIBLE.

And the fact that Daniel didn't recognize ANY of the problems with his dress, is pretty troubling.

Nina made a great point that up until now, it has been all teamwork, and this is the first challenge where you get to see their individual taste level. It's clear that Daniel has bad taste, as does the Jamaican girl.

Ben really seems like a phony, gushing over all the celebrities and judges. He's annoying.

I thought that Amanda or the latina girl should have won. They made the best designs.

Stanley really is a surprise. I think he could win it all because he has great taste and he's very skilled.

Matthew was the only good looking contestant. I hope he comes back if someone else drops out. I want to see his big butt again.

I think Miranda Lambert was the nicest guest judge they had on Project Runway so far. She seemed down to earth with the designers the way she talked to them. Nina and Heidi seemed like they really like her ,but Pozen seemed like he hardly spoke to her.

R241, I agree with you about the whimps ,but on the other hand everyone wants to win this so badly so the stress as usual must be very intense. I hardly ever cry ,but who knows, maybe if that were in that highly ambitious position it might get to me like that too. Also, you are forgetting that many of these guys are major queens.

Matthew is a hottie ,but 9 out of 10 the guy seems like he would be a bottom so that ruins the hotness factor for me.

by Anonymousreply 24602/22/2013

You are also forgetting that these people are sleep deprived for long periods, they work long days in a highly competitive environment. If you are not on the top or on the bottom, you do not get a feedback so it adds more stress because you don't know if you are in the bottom middle or the top middle and how to address either to satisfy capricious judges.

In related news, Project Runway alum and finalist Andy South... is now a woman!

HONOLULU —Hawaii designer Andy South is living life as a woman and, for the first time on television, she's speaking out about being transgendered.

She made the change two years ago, but says the time has come to be open about it.

When we met South in 2010, he was a finalist on the hit television show "Project Runway" opening his Atelier design shop.

But, South was unsettled in a big way. He wanted to be a woman.

Now, he's well on his way. He is living as a she changing her name to Ariyapong Southipong.

In a general setting, I'll use Ari. But, sometimes Andy South is more recognizable," said Southipong. "It's a little easier for people to pick up, oh -- it's that Andy guy. Oh well, not a guy."

This son of Waianae catfish farmers says he knew he was gay at a young age and later realized he was transgendered.

"I would see glimpses of someone else and that someone else was a woman," said Southipong.

He made the decision to go forward with the transition, but then stopped just before Project Runway keeping it a secret.

"Because I didn't want it to interfere with my talent," explained Southipong.

Tonight's senior design challenge was weak and uninspired, resulting in looks that ranged from mediocre to godawful, and I had a hard time deciding which I liked least.

The thrill is long gone, but this season and its team twist is especially grim. I like Michelle, the chick with the circle tattoos who keeps getting bumped from one team to another every episode; she's perhaps not a dazzling talent, but she at least has a pulse and can speak, and in a normal voice, even; without here I would sleep through the entire thing.

The fat lump of lard, the Native American woman, Patricia designs one truly horrifying disaster after another, week after week, each worse than the one before, and yet each week she is "safe". She couldn't design a potato sack and yet she'll probably win by attrition.

Designing for senior women isn't a very inspired theme, and it was a totally uninspiring program, apart from watching the contrast between Nina Garcia Fashion Director of Marie Claire Magazine's failing chin line and the hundreds of thousands of dollars work on the faces of the world's most frightening mother-daughter act. Nina looks so much more, well, human. (Of course, so does Yoda.)

The show itself was a yawn. None of the outfits was great, but Stanley deserved the win because he was lucky enough to get the one older woman with a spectacular body, and he took advantage of it. For a while it looked as if Amanda and her bewitching wart were going to lose, but then, after the initial judging, she (Amanda, not the wart) announced to the group that she had lost, so you knew she couldn't lose. That's the PR editing team's idea of irony. So then, since Tu had the turning-much-nicer-every episode Kate backing him up, Ben had to go. Not much of a loss. He was probably going to run out of blonde dye anyway,

So is Project Runway canceled or something? This story on The Hollywood Reporter website states Heidi is poised to become the 4th judge on America's Got Talent and describes her as the "former" host of Project Runway.

That's an interesting development r262. Judges have to be in New Orleans this week for the first taping day of AGT. The season starts in either late May or early June (last year they started it unusually early) and then live broadcasts start midsummer (maybe in July?) and end in September. But the live shows are only 2 nights a week, so someone could do another job during the day - as Howard Stern demonstrates.

When do they tape Project Runway seasons? Will it overlap with AGT?

Another subpar episode in a subpar season. The only good news: The Bitch is Back! Nina Garcia Fashion Editor of Marie Claire Magazine rose from the undead and was mean, mean, mean. Back to her humorless, ugly, unpleasant self! Yes!! Maybe she just got tired of Sad Zac Posen being so extraordinarily dull, or maybe this whole team season is just bring her (and her chin) down. No matter. Cruella de Fashionville is back! Heros to Zeros! Yes!

Oh right, there was a show. Whatever. The designs were all pretty lame, but the double elimination was a downer--at no point did Heidi say that was possible, and the dress wasn't really that bad to be one of the all-time losers on the show. Actually, Patricia and Samantha's was worse. Amanda and the Butch Lesbian did make the best team, so they deserved to win, although the bewitching wart on Amanda's face seems to be growing at an alarming rate. Perhaps they'll do a show in a few weeks based on a nice design for the wart.

The only other exciting part of the show: the previews for next week!

I thought Daniel & Richard should've gone home for designing a dress tailor made for an '80s hoochie coochie girl from Sabado Gigante. The minute I saw that dress, I thought, "Wow! That is tacky!" The fact that they didn't see that from a mile away makes me question their tastes.

But I'm fine with Kate & Tu's loss. Kate was such a hypercritical bitch. She kept dissing Michelle & Amanda's dress for not being a prom dress, but if she's ever been to a prom in the big city, she'll see that girls want a short, fun, sexy dress that shows lots of skin and one that they can dance in and not overheat. The dress she designed looked pageanty, heavy and too constricting.

Loved Michelle & Amanda's dress and Stanley and Layana's. Layana, however, needs to stop whining like a spoiled little girl. It's unbecoming. And what's with her aversion to pink? I didn't care for Samantha's & Patricia's.

R278, you rude useless loser! I posted twice because there was some technical issues and I didn't know if my message was posted or not!

Also, the word Frau? You do realize what website you are on right?! Surprise! there are some women who are creeps, like yourself and there are some men who are creeps!

Don't take it out on me that people come up off the street saying, you look familiar to them, and they ask you, aren't you one of the relatives on that show Honey Boo Boo!

I like the fact that Patricia does things that are different, even they mostly end up looking fuf. I think the high scool kids were trolling when they voted for the favorite

Patricia is the only one actually creating anything original. The rest are all just referencing past designs. Let's do a gold dress Beyonce has worn 20 times, let's do an 80s dress, let's do a houndstooth pattern. They should rest this show for a year and be a little more picky with the talent pool.

I loved the dress with the pink bow and the houndstooth dress too. One of the Golden Boys should've gone home, not the blue dress team.

I too like Zac's smackdown of Nina. We all know he is a top, I wonder now if he is a verbal top. Yummmm

"Don't cry, it's a happy moment" says Tu to the girl who just got eliminated. Asshole.

My first thought was it was something Rita Moreno wore during the "Dance at the Gym" bit from West Side Story.

Kate sure was bawling in the departure interview. I've never seen anything like it. Oh well, she wasn't very nice anyway.

by Anonymousreply 29503/09/2013

I think that Kate's tears demonstrate that she is an extremely sensitive person, although her sensitivity is limited to injury to herself.

I am so glad Kate & Tu got the boot. I couldn't take much more of that disgusting shit. Princess Kate wanted to dominate and control so she deliberately handpicked the passive Asian eunuch as her unwitting accomplice. And he happily acquiesced to his subservient role, gushing and grinning from ear to ear while playing dutiful houseboy to the lady of the manor. Tu should've just gone all the way with a "Yes, boss lady. Your wish is my command, nice boss lady. Hee-hee (hand over mouth)." This dynamic did not escape Stanley, who commented on it and probably was just as disgusted by this Asian Uncle Tom routine as I was. Then when they BOTH got canned, Tu dutifully rushed to her ladyship's side to console HER. Aw, how sweet... and utterly cringeworthy. Thanks, Tu, for reinforcing Asian stereotypes. Now get the fuck off my television!

I wonder why they didn't announce who won the teen vote. The winning team mentioned it during the voice over.

I kept rewinding, thinking I might have missed something.

Kate might be a bitch, but she called out her cast-mates just right, especially the hispanic chicka.

Heidi announced it before the start of the runway show.

I liked the teenage boys commenting on the gowns. You never would have seen that a thousand years ago when I was in HS.

R298, not only are you wondering why they didn't announce something that they did indeed anounce, you're something of a racist.

By "hispanic chica," do you mean the Native American?

by Anonymousreply 30103/11/2013

Agreed, R300... And I was in high school only 13 years ago. They were all gay, and totally unafraid of what that meant.

R301, I think R298 was referring to Layana Aguilar, the whiny chick who hates pink.

by Anonymousreply 30303/11/2013

You're probably right, R303. That would be equally racist of course -- and I haven't noticed particular bitching about Layana Aguilar.

I don't think that poster meant Patricia (the Native American) but Layana Aguilar, the somewhat spoiled yet very talented Brazilian designer. Even then, calling her Hispanic was a mistake (she would be Latin American or Latina), since she is not from a Spanish-speaking heritage. However, it is an understandable mistake, since her surname Aguilar comes from Spanish as well as Portuguese societies.

Cut r298 a break and just make fun of his/her more glaring mistake - Heidi did clearly announce the winners of the student vote, for which they got kudos and a very positive/surprised reaction, considering they thought they were gonna end up in the bottom.

I found it strange that Michelle and Amanda won. Patricia's team won the teen vote. This accounted for 20% of the vote when combined with the judges tally. They had nothing but good things to say about the dress yet she came in third.

Wow - they all sucked tonight. Not a decent design anywhere. Those men were hot - they deserved much better.

by Anonymousreply 30703/14/2013

Easily the worst designers ever. This show was bad, bad, bad. No winner. They all should have gone home. Just amazing that they can't sew, they can't design, and they're not creative. Only one challenge so far--the florist and hardware show--was good. Poor Heidi and Tim--they must have been wondering what they were going to do for the rest of the challenges left with these subpar contestants.

On the other hand, the Thunder from Down Under. Like, wow. Muscle guys who actually seemed to have some personality. The lead guy with the long hair was cute and funny. Wish they had mentioned his name. Went to the TfDU site and he's not there. Probably ran off with Sad Zach Posen.

Speaking of Sad Zach--his personality seems to have been fabricated by one of these crappy designers. He's just so dull. Just once, if he could say something trenchant, or funny, or even quick. Makes you really, really appreciate Mr. Michael John-Boehner-and-I-are- competing-for-the-title-of-Mr.-Tangerine-Face Kors. You never know what you got till it's gone.

Nina Garcia Fashion Director of Marie Claire Magazine nearly fell off her stool when one of the model's pants started to unravel. It was nice to see her act like a human being.

That Latina chick kept saying Richard makes excuses yet she constantly needs help and constantly makes excuses. She's tiresome. There hasn't been one challenge where she hasn't worried about her other teammates and their impact on her. She needs to worry about her own designs.

I think either Patricia or Richard will go home next week.
