Based on how hardcore the judges are derailing this show, I can only come to the conclusion that they’ve gone blind, or really hate Lifetime and are holding a grudge. (And taking it out on US!) We’re innocent. And we should not have to watch bad designers praised, and good designers insulted. It hurts ME, to see it happen!
Mila Hermanovski – When you create a dress design that you didn’t even have the forsight to realize your model can’t even walk in – you’re a really bad designer. (You could have cut a slit into the dress on the side, hello.) What’s worse is that Mila tried to pin it on her model, snottily remarking that she was angry when she (the model) lifted up the side of the dress – TO WALK. And even then, she could only shuffle like an unhappy Geisha in a bad 70’s design school knockoff. I was totally unimpressed by most of the fabric designs, but Mila’s was truly just stripes. How is that interesting at all? Michael Kors called it a “gay flag”. But that wasn’t enough suckdom to send her home. I’m stunned.
Maya Luz – I don’t hate Maya’s look. I wasn’t impressed by her fabric of “stripes” but it’s an interesting dress. What you can’t tell in this picture as well as you could when watching, is how the black middle section really popped out because it’s kind of this hard-ruffled material. It made the model look pregnant with a plump belly. How is that attractive? I still like Maya, but she didn’t do her BEST here.
Jonathan Peters – Okay. I have so many problems with the Project Runway judges over this. They put it in the bottom three. Peters was one of the only designers to really take a chance at being arty/unique with his design for fabric. (Seriously, half the people just did stripes.) I love the design of the dress, but you can’t see the top half of it under the jacket. Speaking of the jacket, I thought it was a really unique take on one! There is a lot of potential in that design. I’d like more asymmetry on the top part, but it’s cool. Michael Kors called it a “disco straight jacket”. As for the design of the fabric, Tim Gunn loved it but Kors called it a “dirty tablecloth”. Maybe Peters needed more use of how to use the way to computer to design things – he was a little too light-handed. But he had real artistic input!
Emilio Sosa – I hate this guy. He’s not that talented, and he’s a jerk. He WON this challenge. He used a totally basic dress design, and his print was horrible. It was just him writing “ESOSA” with a heart for the O. I’m sorry, are you writing in your diary, fifth grade girl? It didn’t read well, and it was boring. But combined with the “40’s dress” (which did not seem 40’s except for the amazing hairstyle) the judges thought it was amazing. I can only give Sosa props for the jacket, which isn’t entirely horrible. Of course it needs some sort of colored stitching or lining. Ugh. Whatever. I hate him. Stop sucking, and get off this show!
