Seth Aaron's black hair dye job looks terrible.

I hope Dmitry doesn't win again. He's so fucking smug.

Irina was a bitch on her original season, but she seems much nicer now. I hope that she makes it to the finale, because I'd love to see what she comes up with.

Her outfit did look a bit like a chicken, but it was well made. If she had her model put the hood down, instead of leaving it up, the garment might have looked better walking down the runway.

by Anonymousreply 1201/03/2019

Anya should have gone home. She's not a designer at all.

I could have stitched together some random prints and turned it into a flowy dress (the same dress that she made during her ENTIRE season on the show), and mine would have looked better than the crap that she flung down the runway.

She's a fucking hack, not an All-Star. More like a PORN star.

There's no way Dmitry and Seth Aaron won't make it to the finale.

Both of them have never lost!

by Anonymousreply 1401/03/2019

This is a really great idea for a season. I wish it was being done with Nina, Heidi and Tim though and not the all star cast, then it would really feel right and special.

[quote] It was obvious that Dimitri would win, because one of the perks this season is JCPenny releasing a commercialized design (aka limited edition version) on their site after the episode aired. No way would they have been able to do that with, say, Irina's look.

I had the same thought! The winning look being produced by JCPenny means it must have commercial appeal, something avant garde like Irina's look would never be touched by JCPenny. That throws a real wrench into things, I will be watching closely to see if it biases the judging.

After unfairly crowning Anthony Ryan over Uli and Emilio in the biggest bullshit judging in PR history, Isaac is STILL sucking Anthony Ryan's dick. "A fraction of Anthony Ryan's attention is worth more than some of these designers". Fucking christ, that is an embarrassing statement to come from the mouth of a judge IMO.

That is odd, I would have loved see Dom! I'm sure she was asked and didn't want to come back.

Evan Biddell. Wow. What a hot bear. Sean Kelly, hotter than ever (at least to me).

Love the concept of an international all-stars winner season.

by Anonymousreply 1601/03/2019


1. I love the concept of the season. I was worried that awful Brandon who attached useless straps to everything he made would be brought in as an “all star.” I like that it’s not only all winners, but half international ones. And I like the cast.

2. I am sad for Anthony Ryan. He is still young and I remember when I lost my grandmother around his age and was totally devastated. I could not have done something like PR immediately afterward. What terrible timing for him. And you can tell from his face that the feelings are real.

3. Irina did make a chicken costume but it was the only fun thing on the runway.

4. Even if it was recorded a while back, I am shocked to see Georgina “The Accomplice” Weinstein presenting herself so arrogantly. I can’t pretend I don’t know what I know.

5. I’ve always felt like Dmitry is attractive in a creepy way, mainly because he reminds me of Marilyn Manson. But yeah, the Botox comment above is right. He seems to be puffed up with facial fillers (Why?) and I think he’s really...pretty now. I get a “transitioning” vibe between the soft face and the hair.

6. I like the challenge in theory, but they should have found a different way to approach “global” than “your country of origin.” The implication for many of the American-born people is that they should have chosen pre-US origins, as Seth Aaron did Scottish and Spanish, but then the Canadian and Australian ones did their countries of birth instead and Seth Aaron made the unfortunate “Texas Cherokee” choice, which today is fuel to be torn apart in the media if anyone is watching. (American Indian identity is a hot issue right now.) It was great for people like Irina and Dmitry, who can trace their heritage so directly, but kind of a weird thing for the other American people IMO. “Country of origin” to all the foreign winners means “country in which you won,” and for the Americans seems to have meant “country from which your family immigrated.” Blah. And speaking of Americans’ black people? This would have been an awkward challenge for black contestants, but the lack of black people is kind of jarring, especially following the last All Stars season in which three of four finalists was black.

I think I just don’t get Dmitry’s aesthetic at all. He’s a funny guy and has a droll personality, but I never liked his clothes.

Fuck Anya and her draping copout bullshit.

SPOILER ALERT (stop reading now before anything is ruined but it's been 24 hours since the episode so whatever): How in the hell did Anya get a pass on that draped shit show? I know it's easy to say "I could've done that" but I literally could've done that. She draped a few swathes of fabric over her model's shoulders just like she did in every challenge in her winning season. Did she fuck Weinstein? Was her season during the Weinstein years?

That said, I saw her leaked porn tapes and will admit she takes it up the ass like a pro (it was sorta sexy), but does that constitute a season win and a first-episode pass?

Whatever, I'm looking forward to this season because I have very little to look forward to at the moment. Even Mizrahi was all, "What the fuck is this shit?"

PS: Go Dmitry, you got this. Fuck you Seth Aaron -- no way you're not gay.

I understand why Dmitri won, it's something that JC Penney could produce. I also liked Seth Aaron's tartan dress (did he make the footwear too?) , one of the Aussie's power suit, the guy who did the strappy gold lace at the top, very clever.

The fake out, nobody goes home, we've wanted that for years to give contestants time to settle in but in this case, they've already been through the meat grinder and it was just used to save two awful garments. I don't remember a single thing Anthony Ryan has designed. And now we have to deal with that other nonentity, Sean of the Fringe.

It was a stupid cop-out to bring in two new players after the first challenge. I mean, does anyone honestly believe that the show would have eliminated one (or two) in the first round and then introduced new players?

During the whole Harvey Weinstein scandal, which was over a year ago, Wendy Williams mentioned on her show that she was a guest judge on PR. Before Wendy's season aired -- which is this current season -- there was another season of PR that needed to air, so this season is two years old if not a bit older.

In fact, this season was held up for so long and was tainted w/the scandal that their JCPenny contract was no longer valid, which means no one will be able to buy any winning looks from the store.

Ann Fulenwider had a good line, too.

I love when she left the designers after she gave them her critique, by simply saying "I can assure you that someone is going to go home this week. And no one wants to be eliminated." Then she turns and leaves the room. Hahaha.

Then the designers all look at each other and say, "Um.... okay." That was hilarious.

by Anonymousreply 5301/10/2019

This challenge should have been a freebie for Irina. She had the easiest color combination to work with. Ice blue and white work so well together.

All she had to do was add a sleek pair of white pants, and maybe tweaked the top, and she easily could have cruised into next week.

I don't know how she couldn't see how short her dress was, and how trashy it looked. I always thought that Irina was a very smart designer, and this week was a severe lapse of judgment for her.

That's Kristina from Australia, R63.

I think that she's a very good designer, but she just got stuck with some shit colors. In fact, they all did.

Why not just give the designers some beautiful color combinations to work with, and see what they can create. I'd rather see beautiful fashion walking down the runway, rather than some gimmicky challenge with horrendous colors.

I think that's what Sunny was thinking, when he left off the blue. It just wasn't necessary. And he was right about there being no restrictions as to how MUCH of one color they were supposed to use.

At least Seth's outfit had some design elements to it.

Anthony Ryan made a basic jumpsuit with a hideous solid blue plastic in the front, and a bizarre and ugly pattern in the back. It looked like something that a circus clown would wear. He definitely should have gone home for that.

by Anonymousreply 8101/17/2019

Seth Aaaaaaaron seemed genuinely convinced that what he made was some sort of viably realized vision, to the extent that the judges were convinced he was going for something good. All I see is haphazardly stitched seatbelts hanging from a woman’s shoulders. I think this is a case of an artist seeing something no one else can see, and not so much a lack of creativity. I’ve turned in writing assignments to workshops that I was really inspired to write and thought were good and after getting over the shock of the collective “wtf” reaction realized later that I had completely failed to translate what seemed so plainly laid out in front of me. Seth Aaaaaaaron was self-convinced enough that he said he would be content if he were eliminated because he thought his seatbeltmobile was something great, so...OK. Maybe he’ll see what the rest of us see after some time passes and he can see the version he made objectively.

by Anonymousreply 8201/17/2019

True R82, but do you think that Seth's was the WORST design?

Because Sean Kelly's dress looked like a cheap cutout with sunglass lenses dangling from it. Same thing, right? In fact, Sean is so one note. Last week, he had dangling purple tassels on a white dress. This week, he had dangling lenses on a plastic dress. The guy has no new ideas. It's all variations on a theme.

Irina was on All Stars 3 and I thought she was the most talented designer there. Excellent, technically accomplished designs week after week. She got the boot the first time she appeared in the bottom, for a gown that was the guest judge’s favorite. The other judges said it was “too bridal.”

As sad as it is, Dmitry and Anya both have a certain edgy attractive look and people in entertainment production and network programming value that above all else. It’s about image.

Also edgy/thin/fashionable: Christian Siriano, arguably Santino Rice...not many are memorable and can claim some level of celebrity, but these do. Jay McCarroll won for design, but he wasn’t accepted into the fashion or entertainment industries.

Anya has a very good eye for mixing prints and her looks are dramatic. No, she can't sew, her vision is very limited but within that range, she is good. She's a stylist.

Ashley was retro fit and flare dresses. It's a look. Her final collection was a cohesive colorway of grayed pastels, very pretty. She was designing for a specific customer. She hasn't come back for any of the All Stars. I wonder why.

by Anonymousreply 11701/18/2019

Assuming Anya really doesn’t know how to sew, which seems weird for this show, I see the same thing R117 does: she combines prints in an interesting way that always looks distinctively like “an Anya creation,” and in that way she reminds me of Uli. Almost all of Uli’s dresses looked alike, and to me they mostly looked similar to Anya’s. And like Anya’s dresses, Uli’s were mostly breezy and light, and some even look like Anya’s. Yet Uli seems to be considered one of the most visionary designers in the show’s history. Despite her being able to sew, I still find it odd that the two make designs with so many similarities and one is treated like a loser and the other like a genius. Look at this dress and tell me it couldn’t just as easily have Anya’s name on it.

And then there’s the “cocksucker” thing. I can’t tell at this point if the person who keeps posting that here thinks he is joking or if he has hostility because a video came out of her having sex. This isna promarily gay website where the majority of discussions are anchored by pictures of naked guys and their bodies and body parts and sexual acts are discussed in elaborate detail, and usually with reverence the sluttier they are. It’s creepy to see someone going in so hard on a woman because she has sex. News flash: all adults have sex. I am a gay cocksucker, and that’s a term that was used against me when I was young as often as “faggot” was. I actually do like sucking cock, so screw whomever is attacking this woman because she fucked a dude and a girl on camera. Grow up.

No, I am not Anya. Just tired of the extremity of the vicious comments about her here. It’s become like a stalker thread.

Uli did get a lot of flack for designing flowy resort wear. Heidi was very rough on her. But she was capable of sewing dresses, jackets, pants as she proved during the course of the season and in her final collection.

Anya admitted she had never sewn a pair of pants in the challenge where they had to make a man's outfit AND her's split on the runway. That should have sent her home. Even more blatant though was Tim's home visit to the finalists. Anya had bought the most god awful selection of fabric, very drab. It was bizarre. Then when they arrived back in NYC, suddenly they were given another thousand dollars to go back to Mood and Anya basically redid her entire final collection.

Meanwhile, in contrast to R125’s points, Milo Yiannopoulos is not American, was born in the UK, studied (did not get a degree) in the UK, and forged his career as a video game reporter in the UK—and then suddenly for no reason was accepted by the media generally as a legitimate scholar and journalist specializing in US politics. It makes sense to factor in people’s resumes—if we are talking about foreign person with no experience in the country or the profession suddenly influencing a foreign country’s national politics. In Jasper’s case, it sounds like he is culturally mostly or in great part British, so I don’t see the challenge to how he presents himself.

by Anonymousreply 12901/19/2019

The production has cast many contestants who have been accused of not being able to sew or not being able to sew well. Judges have said that not all successful designers can sew, and countless contestants who *can* have insisted “I’m not just a seamstress,” and “it’s a design competition, not a who-can-sew-the-best competition.”

I know nothing about fashion design except what I’ve learned from/seen on this series, and it has suggested many times that sewing and design are not one and the same. Personally, I would *think* that stitching and pattern-making skills would be basic core competencies of any designer, just like grammar is for a writer and drawing is for any visual artist—but Project Runway judges, contestants and the production by way of casting people who don’t sew well have suggested otherwise pretty consistently. I think I even recall someone who didn’t know how to thread the sewing machine and had to get help.

I’m more inclined to blame, if blame must be assigned, producers for casting people with sub-basic skills rather than attack those people’s characters by, for example, calling someone a disgusting cocksucker every time she sails through...because the judges, who work in the fashion industry, like her designs.

Sorry, but it really bothers me. We can say with one hundred percent assurance that Isaac Mizrahi, Alyssa Milano, Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Christian Siriano, Michael Kors and even The Gorgeous and Purehearted Georgina Weinstein have one thing in common: All, without any shade of doubt, suck cock. So Anya was videotaped doing it. We’re going to string her up for it? Really? Fuck that.

And I feel like RuPaul’s Drag Race used to focus a lot more on the contastants’ struggles to make their clothes, whether they could sew or not. I feel like they’ve cut out most of that aspect now to focus on lame squabbles. Either way, RPDR does show that some people who don’t know how to sew can put together creative (usually campy/tacky since it’s drag) designs even when they have to use hot glue.

On Project Runway Junior, the kids did all of their own sewing and designs, and it was amazing.

In the first season, I actually thought that the teenagers did a much, much better job than the adults (on regular Project Runway). Their designs were more interesting and more creative.

Fascinating that they both wear some form of drag. I really don’t care at all, but it’s curious that it seems all young gay guys are at least somewhat crossing a gender line. That wasn’t really a standard thing gay guys did when I came of age 20 years ago.

by Anonymousreply 14801/19/2019

I would say that Austin Scarlett and Fabio have both flirted with crossing the gender line, on their respective seasons. And Austin appeared ages ago on Project Runway. There were always gender crossing trailblazers, across the decades.

As for the Juniors, I think that Matt and Rene happen to be more prominent because they are more confident about who they are, at such a young age. However, the rest of the male cast seemed to be "presenting" more as your typical male.

Even so, I applaud all of them for being themselves in front of a national audience.

RE: the Uli/Anya comparison.

Uli was on the show years ago. Her resort looks were fairly new to the fashion scene. She said many times on her season that she was from a cold climate and living in a warm one now and that’s what she wanted to do, no matter what the judges thought. Her pattern and color mixing skills were phenomenal.

Cut to fifteen (?!) years later and Uli’s look has been done by everyone. Even trashy Kyle from RHBH had a couple seasons of wearing flown Uli-style gowns. So Anya did not have a unique vision, her look had been done before. And much better by others, including Uli.

R149 You’re right...didn’t even think of Austin Scarlett...and that brings to mind Richie Rich, which was sort of always drag from the neck up and I gues flamboyantly gay from the neck down. I saw his design partner Traver Rains on Instagram last year and was disappointed to see that the formerly creative, avant-garde guy has now settled on being yet another generic built-and-naked Instagram whore who post “thirsty” pictures of himself with gay porn stars. He has to be 40 or 45 now. I am sad that the gay community itself has transitioned from a font or creativity and imagination to a watered-down parade of sex-obsessed dudes who spend every waking moment trying to conform to physical standards.

R154 / R153 Among the three, I liked Uli’s personality the best. She seems very sweet. But she seemed very one-note to me from beginning through the end of the season. I would have been torn as a judge between Jeffrey and Laura. Jeffrey’s yellow plaid gown is imprinted in my mind. Some people hated it, and I think it was brilliant. Everything Laura made was refined and gorgeous, basically perfect. As years have passed, I admire Jeffrey’s imagination during his season (He seems to have fallen apart since then.), but when I learned Laura abandoned design and became an archer, I actually felt like that’s a huge loss—so in the end, I think she deserved to win. The judges were unfair to her in my opinion for always calling her boring and that go-to insult “matronly.” I think her clothes had too much personality and humor to be dismissed that way; they were always perfectly refined, too, though.

I did not care for Jeffrey’s collection and would have awarded the win to Uli with Laura in second, but PR has a terrible track record when it comes to selecting winners.

More often than not, they don’t judge the clothes, but the personality, media appeal, and narrative of the designer who made them. This was blatantly obvious in S12, when fan favorite Dom became the first African American winner with a collection that was ill-fitting, poorly sewn (especially the silk charmeuse pieces), and lacking in cohesion. Alexandria finished in second with an immaculate, on-trend collection that was auctioned off for more than all of the other designers’ collections. Her loss was purely political.

So was Kelly Dempsey’s loss in S14. A talented woman winning with a good collection just can’t generate the same publicity and excitement as the first ever plus-size winner. Ashley’s collection wasn’t as strong, but it didn’t matter—the judges thought it would make for good TV and make them appear progressive.

That’s why you can’t take this show too seriously. It’s not a design competition, it’s a reality TV show.

by Anonymousreply 15801/20/2019

I really hate to say this because I absolutely adore Dom, but I tend to agree with you. And then she won AGAIN on her season of All-Stars. In Dom's case, I think the judges responded more to her personality, than to her actual design.

R177, the cute gay ginger was Bradon. Strange he has never appeared on All Stars.

Dom gave an interview after she won, stating that she never took to Alexandria’s collection and she felt it wasn’t strong enough for fashion week. That made me think less of her.

The other three designers that season actually showcased a variety of garments—dresses, skirts, shorts, pants, shirts, jackets. Dom only made dresses, two jumpsuits, and the weird bathing suit. She relied on her prints to carry the collection. And the construction wasn’t sophisticated, either. Lots of puckering at the seams of the silk charmeuse garments, and her finale gown wasn’t lined.

If you want to talk about overpraised contestants, I never understood the love for Dmitry. I love him as a reality TV contestant, but I look at his winning collection in S10 and I am far from impressed.

R196 I think his carefully made geometric “floating illusion” clothes are impressive and interesting one by one. Taken as a whole in the image you posted, the set is pretty lackluster and bland. And his clothes do look rather commercial and cheaply made (at least on camera), especially compared with someone like Laura Bennett’s clothes, which always looked so high-end. Even her simple ones look luxurious.

And Mondo’s clothes were whimsical and even gaudy but somehow usually looked high-end. Like Uli and Anya, he mixed patterns, but unlike them he didn’t seem one note. Like Dmitry, he used interesting techniques, but his work always looks expensive even if it’s wild and wacky and experimental. He stands out in my mind alongside Christian Siriano as a visionary contestant.

I am a generation Xer (40), and I think she is a Millennial whose “on trend” sensibility just looks to me like the fabrics I wore and slept under throughout elementary school.

I do love this dress. I don’t think I would dislike her clothes if she didn’t use so many 80s-like patterns, which just send me to a weird nostalgic place. As a person, she seemed likable.

Christian Siriano has impressed me more as time has passed. During his season it was obvious he was head and shoulders beyond everyone else design wise, but he seemed immature and he really fucking annoyed me with his “fierrrrce hot mess” stuff. He emerged not only as a legitimate designer, but he was not too proud not only to sell clothes to average-sized women but to outfit them to show off his designs. Whoopi Goldberg sings his praises, and it really says a lot that the little guy has become a nondiscriminatory go-to for diverse bodies. It seems like just a wise business decision given who actually buys clothing, but it’s also just pretty bold. Most designers still do not care to dress larger women publicly. He has done so and it has only solidified his place in the industry.

R210 Agreed, and that’s why I forgave it. He was the most interesting contestant, really, in the show’s history because he is arguably the very best designer—objectively at the very least one of the best designers—and yet he was basically a kid who acted like a kid and steamrolled everyone else without any effort because he was just the best. Other contestants have made things that resemble this finale outfit, for example, yet his stands apart somehow as superior. It just looks so fucking professional and so luxuriant.

Yep r220. The Season 4 Fashion week show was the best Project Runway finale ever and it isn't even close.

All three collections were top tier. and Jillian and Rami would have won most other seasons with their collections.

by Anonymousreply 22101/20/2019

Dom seems like a nice person with a bubbly personality but in her winning regular season, I thought her silhouettes were basic and I really disliked her prints. Alexandria's collection was more polished. I agree if she'd added a non-neutral color or a print it might have been better received. I don't remember a "wow" piece either. There was a strange bit during the reunion show when someone complained about her and she was very taken aback.

The *only* design I liked by Jeffrey was his yellow plaid gown, that was outstanding but that's it.

Laura Bennett, first of all, did the show while pregnant. With like five kids at home, all boys. What's really sad is that her husband died a couple years later. She moved to a farm in Pennsylvania and did that archery thing. That's all I know.

He was always one of my all-time favorite designers on Project Runway.

I did a search and found this:

Project Runway and Mad Fashion alum Chris March is opening up in great detail about the 2017 accident that changed his life. Fans first learned about the incident back in the spring after Bravo stars like Andy Cohen and Sonja Morgan showed support for the designer by sharing with fans a Go Fund Me page set up to help Chris with his medical expenses. Now Chris is recalling this chapter in his life for the first time in a statement to Entertainment Weekly.

He confirmed that last June he was involved in a fall at home: “Dear Everyone, today is the one year anniversary of my accident, so I wanted to tell you what happened so you hear it from me... I fell and hit my head in my apartment. It’s that simple. I passed out and laid there for 4 days. I woke up and called 911 and somehow got to the hospital. In the hospital all sorts of medical problems happened: My blood sugar was over 500. My organs started failing, my right lung collapsed, and they had to give me a tracheotomy and put me on a ventilator."

He was then put into a medically induced coma and his medical issues continued, he shared: "My kidneys failed, my lung kept collapsing, my gall bladder was infected. I had a wound on my right leg. My body went septic... The coma lasted about 2 months. I came close to death many times—they called my family and they were told if they wanted to say goodbye to come right away. Somehow I miraculously woke up — I couldn’t talk and didn’t know where I was for a couple of months. I ended up being paralyzed in both legs from the knees down. My right hand and arm are paralyzed.”

One year later, the fashion designer offered an update on where things stand today as he is currently in a medical facility in Northern California. He has been doing physical therapy for several months, as well. He thanked everyone for their support.

“This has been a long and extremely difficult journey, physically and emotionally. And I have a long way to go, just like Dorothy,” he said in his statement to EW. “I could not have survived without my family and friends. I deeply appreciate everyone who has donated to the Go Fund Me page. I have good days and bad days and the worst days you can imagine, but I still have my brain, and for that miracle I am forever grateful. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers and encouragement.”

Chris appeared on Season 4 of Project Runway, in addition to his own Bravo series. Some of the notable stars he's worked with in the past include Madonna, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Meryl Streep, including her 2010 Oscars dress. He even teamed up with Target on a costume and accessories line.

Interesting that when All Stars brought in Anne Fulenwider as mentor, much of the discussion here was about how horrible she is...and now she is barely mentioned. I thought you guys were too hard on her at first, holding her to a standard of being like Tim Gunn. But she really has proved to be awful. She’s completely unsympathetic and her advice doesn’t seem helpful. Where Tim came across like a teacher, she comes across like a TV show antagonist who is sent in the workroom to make people insecure about what they are doing. Someone (Dmitry?) even said she was mean recently.

But hey, this show obviously is cast with behind-the-scenes interests in mind and no longer for viewers. The Georgeous and Complicit Georgina Weinstein is still there receiving heaps of superficial flattery. Fulenwider is the EIC of Marie Claire—the big boss of the magazine that partners in producing the show—so who is going to deny her ego when it wants to be a TV star, even if it puts off viewers?

by Anonymousreply 25001/21/2019

I still like Anne Fulenwider better than Zanna who never had anything to say, she was just some perky cheerleader, no real fashion critique.

I liked Joanna a lot. You’ll hate me, but probably better than Tim. He doesn’t always steer people in the right direction and he always has obvious favorites that bias his advice. I’ve always resented teachers who play favorites.

by Anonymousreply 25201/21/2019

Yes, Tim definitely doesn't mind speaking his mind, he has called out the judges many times over the years for what he thinks are stupid decisions.

by Anonymousreply 25301/21/2019

R253 Which kind of begs the question of what his job is on the show and how good he is at it. Many times, he has encouraged contestants to do something that the judges all reacted negatively to or even eliminated him for (hence the development of the “Tim Gunn Save,” which he sometimes invoked when he basically steered contestants in the direction they were aufed for). Is his job to encourage what falls in line with his personal taste, which he usually does? Or is it to steer them in a direction that will benefit them as contestants and lead to their win, or at least not get them kicked off?

by Anonymousreply 25401/21/2019

I mean no one can predict what the judging panel (and the producers) are going to decide to do that day. All any mentor can do is give the advice they feel is best.

by Anonymousreply 25501/21/2019

R205, interestingly that monster dress was a collaboration between Dom and Alexandria! Dom said it was more Alex’s concept, but it’s a fun dress.

As for Jillian, she was a brilliant designer who just had the misfortune of being on the wrong season. She said she gets the call for All Stars every year, but always turns it down. She probably knew that as a Bravo-era contestant Lifetime would not let her win.

I love that Tim Gunn has never been afraid to call the judges out (and openly dislikes Zac Posen and Isaac Mizrahi) but he’s just seemed so over the show for years now. And he tended to use his Save on weak designers whose personalities he liked (at least in Seasons 12 - 14).

But I’ll stop going on about the past. I think either Anthony Ryan, Dmitry, or Sean will win this season. That’s not necessarily an endorsement, just recognition of the fact that they’re precisely the type this judging panel favors (male, telegenic, appealing to Lifetime’s target audience). Hope Irina makes it farther than she did last time, though.

by Anonymousreply 25601/21/2019

The one I miss most of all is Michael Kors. He was an original, and you can tell both Mizrahi and Posen have tried to fill his role, but their bon mots are never as clever or funny or cutting as Kors’s were. He could be really mean, but he added serious entertainment value to the show.

I liked Michelle’s a lot.

Dmitry’s looked like a discount prostitute’s fancy fantasy to me.

Sean’s made silk men’s pajamas with a matching corset. I kinda like it but it looks like men’s pajamas.

Christina’s looked like a third-grade class group project making latticework with construction paper and ace bandages.

Evan’s looks well done to me. Not my style, but it’s pretty good. Why are so many using beige fabric, though?

Cynthia’s model looks like she was mauled by a monster down both her flanks and had to be stitched back together while in her dress or else she would bleed to death. And then she bled to death anyway.

Jasper’s = skinny cow.

Anya’s...I actually like it. I really like the combination of pastel florals and black netting, and the bias-cut corset is odd but interesting. The corset looks way too loose to be a corset and I like that, too. I know: there goes any credibility I had!

Juli made beautiful neglige for a young, newly widowed Melania-type third wife.

Irina’s s&m alien with an exoskeleton...I mean, it looks like she put a lot of effort into it, but I don’t really like it. I could see a pop star who likes attention wearing it to an awards show, I guess.

I hate Anthony Ryan’s. It looks like “athleisure” workout wear made for an evening gala, whereupon everyone at the gala would tell the rich old man that his new girlfriend certainly has an interesting eye for fashion. And then tomorrow all the women snicker over white wine about the clueless dumb slut who thought she looked good in a Lycra gown.

Django: the fabric cheap to me, but I like the shapes and layers.

Irina's was my favorite. A lot of work went into that coat, loved the shape. I disagree with the [Marquesa woman] critique that all her looks so far have been the same length. They have but each one has been a different silhouette.

When the challenge was announced, my first thought was, corset? how dated. Second thought was, if they have to construct a corset bodice then Anya is screwed. But hey ho, they supplied a corset. Her skewed corset look was actually interesting. No time was spent with her so we barely saw it though.

I think it had more to do with his treatment of the models. He was being misogynistic, and Alyssa has been a vocal critic of Trump's treatment of Stormi Daniels, so it makes sense.

And if you want to talk about something that "smacked of racism," well how about Jasper's treatment of the black model. He basically treated her like a dog. Did that smack of racism, too?

Django and Cynthia have been in the bottom twice and safe the rest of the time. Looks like one of them may be next if they don’t radically upgrade the crap they’re sending down the runway. The edit says it may be Django, since he’s coming across as that typical contestant (there’s always one of them) who continuously harps on how he doesn’t have any competition but is never on top and designs crap.

On the flip side, Dmitry, Irina and Michelle have the strongest track records so far (Christina is a close fourth) with a win each, and Dmitry being the only one of them who has never been in the bottom. But Irina’s visits to the top are more impressive, ruinedbonly by a bottom two episode.

I didn't find Sean's design that bad, and I'm not sure why they hated it so much. I see why they put Django in the bottom, but at least he has ideas and he knows how to construct well.

Sean's dress was sexy but I agree that it wasn't his best work and felt unpolished and in some ways unfinshed and thought through presentation-wise.

Michelle deserved the win. That dress was a knock-out. Even more impressive is that she came up with that being inspired by Dimi... uh, a porcupine.

Dimitry. Yeesh. His dresses this season look so drab, traditional, frumpy, conservative, outdated. Bohemian chic for cougars. I don't get why he gets praised for that and ends up in the top three for his designs.

Anthony Ryan was ok. Didn't get owl from that though and it didn't look like something you'd wear on a WILD night out. But it did look pleasant enough.

I think Django will end in a ditch somewhere as soon Anne Fulenwider catches him in a dark corner of the studio.

Irina is by far the most innovative and creative, in terms of design. She does things that nobody else even come close to doing. Her only issue now is editing. Oh, and taste.

Dmitry is handsome and telegenic with an attractive speaking voice. Are his designs all that? I don’t think so. If I were a judge, I probably wouldn’t have awarded him the win on either of his two previous Project Runway appearances, but this is not really a design competition.

I fully expect the winner to be Dmitry, Sean, or Anthony Ryan. They most adhere to the type the panel and producers like to award on this show. In all likelihood, one of them was pegged to win before cameras even started rolling, and this season is a semi-entertaining exercise in futility.

Someone asked about Anya skating by for five weeks with questionable designs. I wouldn’t be surprised if she had it written into her contract that she couldn’t be eliminated for X number of shows. All Stars contestants from other franchises have done this, and can get away with it because the casting pool is much smaller for an All Stars season (especially an all winners edition).

by Anonymousreply 37702/02/2019

Well that sounds extremely frustrating for the viewer, R377, because the show didn't start out that way.

At least with Tim Gunn as mentor, there was integrity with the judging. Nina and Michael also wouldn't let some crap designer get away with sending shit down the runway. Although, Nina did have a hand in awarding Anya and Ashley Nell the win for both their seasons, so she loses some credibility there. Once Zac joined the judging panel, it was over.

I also loved Biddell's gown. I started to question my taste when Sean and others were criticizing his gown as cheap and "nasty" looking, but I'm glad that the judges liked it, because it totally deserved to be in the top 3.

I have always said that she didn't deserve to win her season, and this past episode proved it.

by Anonymousreply 40302/07/2019

Django is hilarious in his hatred for Anne.

Next week he tells her to fuck off, and calls her an asshole! Rofl.

It's obvious that he will not win, because Anne has a hand in picking the winner, since she has to work with them for a year.

He'll never get the job.

I think the issue with Dmitry—and also Sean—is they do beautiful work, but there are no surprises. They use the same themes over and over again. That can work with iconic designers (Chanel comes to mind), but frankly, they’re not iconic.

“FINALLY, Anya was exposed as the fraud that she is.”

Anya emphasized in the first episode of the season that she doesn’t know how to sew, hasn’t made a garment since she was kicked off the show years ago, and was “crazy” to accept the invitation to be on the show. It’s silly to suggest she was trying to fool the world about her abilities. She was just coasting along with her limited skill set for as long as she could, and she knew that and admitted it.

Biddell's gown should have won. It was very sexy and elegant.

The editing for this show is interesting.

I thought that Biddell was a goner for sure, when he was saying that he always finishes early, and that the judges will love his dress, and that he's never been in the bottom before.

Also, Anthony Ryan was making snarky comments about how there's "always more work to be done," and how Biddell "needs to be brought down a peg."

Then, voila.... Biddell is in the top 3. Nice trick play by the editing team!

Django has been in the bottom the last three times, and safe the rest. Cynthia has been in the bottom just twice, and safe the rest.

So, technically Django is performing the worst right now. But I suppose his delusional self-worth, along with his funny quips, could provide enough entertainment to keep him around longer than wallflower Cynthia., who has been harping on how much she misses her life in Brazil,

by Anonymousreply 42602/07/2019

Biddell, Cynthia and Django are the only ones left without a win so far. Biddell is due, and avant garde may be along his line of expertise, judging from his past designs.

I detest the people who put on personalities to stand out as reality show contestants instead of advancing on the merits or their design abilities.

Rofl. You can tell that everyone HATES Ann Fulenwider.

I'm starting to think that Michelle will win, only because she kisses Ann's ass. Especially with her comments on yesterday's episode: "Everytime I've listened to Ann's advice, I've either been in the top, or won." What a kiss ass. But since Ann is going to have to work with the winner for a full year, they will definitely have to kiss her ass.

“They don't play repeats from the previous week anymore. It just seems like they're trying to end this show quickly and just move on.”

Good. Lifetime sabotaged its own ratings at least for me with its programming. My DVR was set to record only new episodes of Project Runway. Lifetime aired last week’s episode as new because they added tweets or some shit as the “social thread,” except they didn’t even bother adding the social media comments after a while, and so it just recorded repeats edited from 90 min to 60 min. Then the DVR recorded a super-lame skit show with some random woman doing a parody of Project Runway. I don’t remember the name of it but I watched twice and then every week resented that I had to delete it every week. AND THEN Lifetime aired a five minute “top five” clip show (why?!) as a new PR episode, and then, finally, the actual new episode. I would go out of town for work and come back to a DVR full of Project Runway, but only three of 12 new episides were new episodes. I don’t know what the fuck their programmers were trying to do.

Meanwhile, since RuPaul’s Drag Race has moved to VH1, my DVR only records it if I remember to set the machine every week. I have it set for new episodes of the series, but it doesn’t record them. Ever. Unless I individually set the DVR for this week’s next episode.

HA, R527, if Lifetime’s programming model has become “We produce it; WE DARE YOU TO FIND IT!” well, then...that makes a lot of sense coming from the network that is airing a show hawking JC Penney (ha), telling you to go to their website to buy clothes that JC Penney not only doesn’t sell, but has to tweet to the dozen viewers who remain that they no longer sponsor the Lifetime show. I mean...well. OK. Maybe Millennials have moved up the ranks at Lifetime and their approach to producing television is “who even watches TV?” This will end well for them.

by Anonymousreply 52803/08/2019

R528, WTF are you going on about? My point is simple - nowadays you can watch past episodes of any show if you own a pc, laptop, notebook, iPad, smartphone or smart TV. That’s all. No big expedition to get there either.

by Anonymousreply 52903/08/2019

For those who don't watch the show online, and wait for it on cable, it only shows up once a week.

In addition to that, Lifetime used to re-run the show three or four times that evening, but now they've cut it back to twice.

Michelle’s pitch patch dress deserved the boot. And she knew it. She was saved by her track record of rectangular dresses.

Anthony Ryan never won his original season, so I'm okay with him going home.

I'm still rooting for Irina!

by Anonymousreply 54003/13/2019

Michelle’s dress was a disaster, although Anthony Ryan’s wasn’t great, either. I thought Irina’s was the best by far.

Dimitri gets a pass every week for shit that looks old fashioned beyond belief.

by Anonymousreply 54103/13/2019

Final four!

Time for Dmitry to go next week.

by Anonymousreply 54203/13/2019

I was on board with everything that fabulous guest judge said in her critique.

Loved Irina's gown. It was the only one that fit the challenge.

Biddell's WAS frumpy. It was hideous, in my opinion. And Dmitry sent the usual shit that he always sends down the runway. I'm so over his designs.

Between Anthony Ryan and Michelle, Michelle should have gone home. Her design was horrid and cheap looking. At least Anthony Ryan's girl wouldn't look like a fool walking into a ballroom. Michelle's would.

Isaac and Nina were way off in their coments.

by Anonymousreply 54303/13/2019

Next week looks like a shit show.

Why would they make the final four designers, design for three random people of all shapes and sizes - some male, some female. That makes no fucking sense!!!

If they really wanted to see the true talent of these people, they have to stop giving them these stupid ass reality television challenges, which has nothing to do with the true test of good design.

by Anonymousreply 54403/13/2019

Anthony Ryan’s tufts of feathers looked like gigantic hairy moles all over his model. That was a grotesque dress. What the fuck.

I think I liked the white and yellow dress underneath the hairy moles, but it’s hard to know.

Does Anthony Ryan suffer from depression? He seems very unhappy.

They're currently re-running season five on Bravo.

I cannot believe how many times LeeAnn (the eventual winner) was on the bottom! More times than I can count.

I would love to have seen Stella go to Fashion Week. That would have been interesting.

Season 5 had a lot of cute guys. I loved Blayne the blond twink, Daniel Feld, and Wesley Nault. They were all really attractive.

I even loved Kenley.

R544, the purpose of a shit show at this time in the game is to spare you any pangs of regret you might feel at Project Runway leaving Lifetime.

True R550, but judging from the previews, it seems like Irina was being set up to fail.

I met Leathah Stella, shortly after her season ended. She was just out walking her dog in NYC. My friend and I stopped and said hi and she was super nice. A little, sedated...but very friendly. Did not seem like she enjoyed her time on PR. Seemed kind of bitter about behind the scenes things.

by Anonymousreply 55403/14/2019

I loved Stella, too! She was so New York.

At first I thought Blayne was kind of fugly, but his looks really grew on me. He looks like he'd be fun in bed.

Does Anthony Ryan have lupus? It looks like he has the tell-tale butterfly rash across his cheeks The rash is not as severe as some get, but it's enough that it looks suspect. He also seemed quite off this season, though I'm sure a part of it is probably because he lost his grandmother so recently.

Also, is Dmitry gay or straight or bi? I could see him being any of those things, but a google search didn't tell me anything.

by Anonymousreply 55603/14/2019

I used to like Dmitri purely because he was entertaining but he's been boring this season and his designs are incredibly granny. I'm ready for him to go home and it's seems like he's ready for it too.

by Anonymousreply 55703/15/2019

Right, R557? He seems completely checked out.

by Anonymousreply 55803/15/2019

Irina has started showing her true colors again.

She kept her bitchiness in check during the whole season, but she really got nasty with this last challenge. "My design deserves to win."

She was right, but she didn't have to be such a bitch about it. This is why I actually disliked her during her original season.

Is there a thread for PR on Bravo?

by Anonymousreply 56203/17/2019

Dmitry posted an “ask me anything” IG story yesterday and one of the questions was: “Do you ever design for your girl friend, your mom?”

His answer was “YES! ❤️“

Conspicuous in the phrasing. Does that mean your girlfriend and your mom, or does it mean your mom is “your best girl”?

A couple of questions later, he posted a vague response alluding to romance in a way that for any straight person would have been straightforward with a “she,” but his left it open to interpretation.

Long story short, I think he is gay, necessarily closeted about it because he is Belarusian, and as a consummate attention whore, he enjoys conjuring mystery that keeps some people wondering.

—Official— Project Runway Bravo Reboot thread

Didn’t wanna derail the All Stars 7 thread. Now that the promo and designers are out, let’s discuss.

by Anonymousreply 56403/17/2019

Huh. I just came across one of those "where are they now" webpages, this was on the ET website (not EW) and it listed the Lifetime PR winners. So it was the usual blah-blah filler but what was interesting is that it linked to several of their instagram accounts, Anya, Dimiti, Seth Aaron, Ashley Nell Tipton, Irina, Leanne Marshall, Christian Sirano, fan favorite Gretchen Jones... and it was really interesting to see who is making a living as a designer.

Christian gets all the publicity and he is dressing Hollywood actresses but if you look at his photos, there's no "Sirano look". If you were told the gowns were by a dozen different designers, you'd believe it. Now, Leanne Marshall is doing bridal wear and I'll bet she is more successful than Christian. She's doing these chiffon gowns that are dyed unusual colors and they are simply gorgeous. Dimitry is still doing some structured dresses with the illusion inserts and mostly takes a lot of selfies showing him traveling in Europe and elsewhere. Gretchen seems to be out of the clothing business all together, she's doing podcasts and workshops about self actualization or some kind of woo.

Speaking of, what's he up to? Do you have a link, R565?

by Anonymousreply 56603/18/2019

He wasn't mentioned in the article but here is his Instagram link.

So it seems like "former P R contestant" is an actual job description. They don't just sit around waiting to be selected for All Stars, they get together and put on fashion shows at malls. Or who knew that El Paso had a Fashion Week?

R571 I really hope they wouldn't drag Mona to the show 😬. I don't think anyone wants to see that.

by Anonymousreply 57403/20/2019

Dmitry or Michelle could have gone - both their collections were pretty unspectacular. Again, Dmitry didn't seem to care, while Michelle picked the worst print she could find for her granny. Biddell's was far and away the best collection of the group.

Whoa, r574, I didn’t even know Katherine Helmand had died! (I was out of the country recently).

Dimitry’s collection was awful. I knew they’d keep all 4.

90 minutes was way too long — lots of filler.

by Anonymousreply 57703/20/2019

Agreed that Dmitry should have gone home.

The outfit he made for the blonde lesbian was horrific, unflattering, and kind of mean.

His outfit for the young guy in that family was ill-fitting and dated.

The fact that Dmitry didn't realize any of this, just shows how clueless he is.

by Anonymousreply 57803/21/2019

It was interesting to see at the very end of the episode, when there was a re-cap of each designers designs, during the course of the show.

Each of them have made some really nice designs, but my favorite was Michelle. She really is very creative, and has the best taste of all of the designers.

I'm torn, because I like Michelle, Irina and Biddell, but if I had to choose one, it would probably be Michelle.

by Anonymousreply 57903/21/2019

I hope Irina wins.

Nobody else even comes close to her level of talent.

However, just listening to Isaac Mizrahi, he has a MAJOR boner for Dmitry.

Michelle deserved that win. It was beautiful and cool. Dimitry had some wonderful pieces, but his collection left me..cold.

Irina's was too heavy, and then those last two looks were light and pretty, and didn't fit the rest of her collection. Biddel's was mostly goofy, but I liked a couple of the looks.
