Countdown to Project Runway! - Page 6

well, shoot-K didn't make much of a kerfluffle at all! I was also disappointed that Alison and Jeffrey (?) didn't win-I like Jeffrey more now. He isn't as egotistical as I first thought. Angela is too much! My favorite is Michael at this point.

I thought Angela's design last night was beautiful, and I thought she showed good leadership. She was able to step back and let her team members play to their strengths, and they were able to keep here from getting whickety-whacked out with those rosettes!

You know, I am glad that Keith got kicked off. I am surprised he thought he could pull that crap and get away with it. I am thinking now that his designs seemed very very similar now. The winning blue dress and then the patterned red dress with the naked dog. Very similar. Was his book that specific? Having access to how to books and then using the internet definitely gave him an unfair advantage over the others.

My favorite is Michael too and the architect lady with 5 kids, cant remember her name. Although, I totally covet Allison's hair and think she is pretty cool too.

Boy did Angela pull that one out. She was a good leader, and picked a good team and they really made a great ensemble! Good for her. I didnt dislike her nearly as much as before.

And frankly, I was really surprised Robert didnt go home last night. His outfit was completely incongruous and the jacket was sooooo dowdy, actually, I thought the whole thing sucked. Whereas, shoot, what was her name? hers just missed the audience a little and then the pants weren't great. Well, the tunic was a little funny too in that belty thing. Anyway, I thought Robert should have gone instead of her.

my kids just reminded me of our favorite part.

Bradley. OMG, we love him.

"I"m a squid without an ocean."

bwahahahahah!!

"she keeps checking up on me and I can't figure out why. Maybe it's my beard."

Bradley is so charmingly in touch with his inner child. I was really surprised by Robert-that jacket was so wrong! And the back slit on the skirt?
This is snarky of me, but Angela still annoyed me. Could she have blurted "Empire State building!" a couple more times? I really liked how Bonnie handled her auf, after watching the exit video. She didn't try to pin it on anyone else. I want alison's hair, too!

Robert's was just ugly. I was so surprised at 1) the outfit 2) that he didn't get aufed. It was horrible.

Bonnie's was better. She designs for the masses. Heidi didn't like it because she is a perfect supermodel. Bonnie's clothes are for "real" people. I didn't ove it, but it was more wearable, say to the office, than that outfit Robert designed.

Angela's was really nice. Ilike how they worked as a team and even included her rosettes in a practical way.

I like Michael a lot.

If you haven't checked out Tim's Take on the Bravo website, it is an awesome recap of each episode. Tim Gunn is seriously one of the best things about the show, I : lurve : him!

Carry on!

That annoyed me, too. My sister pointed out that during the first season, someone (Jay, maybe) used the Chrysler Building as inspiration. Hmmmmmmm?

I thought they were too easy on Keith. They should have made him walk around NYC wearing something Angela designed that wasn't inspired by "THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING!!!" and with plenty of rosettes.

just found this thread and am suprised and thrilled that I'm not the only one with a 'natural bend' watching it we fell asleep before the reveal at Macy's and just now found out about the big win thanks to the mention of Tim's blog on this thread

I work at Polo Ralph Lauren and we were discussing last night episode. Keith deserved to be kicked off by breaking the rules, however, we found that the rules are stupid. No patternmaking books? Come on! Every designer at one point or another refers to them. Well if they actually make patterns and sew. Since it's really not a designer's job in the industry.

Both dresses were halters of sorts but that is where the similarity stopped. The red dress from last week's show was pleated in the skirt and the skirt had a straight hem. It had a high collar which was also pleated and the pleats stuck up. The navy dress from episode #1 had a complicated skirt that wrapped and was fishtail in the back. It was a classic halter top with no ruffles. The waist had little buttons on the back.

I am actually sorry to see him go. Tim's Take this week says Tim does not think that Keith used the books but just to have them was a rule violation. I thought he was really the most gifted of the designers. But, if he did cheat, then he deserved to go. At this point, I also like Bradley a lot and admire his sense of humor and love Allison's hair and Laura's chicness, which I neither could nor would pull off in real life (please, the woman has to have at least one nanny!). And Michael, oh lord, if I had a fab body I would want him to dress me and make me sexy. That man should dress Jennifer Lopez or Mariah Carey or someone else who is really curvy and sexy.

I disagree. I hated bonnie's colors and cut, it equaled total Frump on a show about high fashion that's ready to wear. There was no real challenge in her design. She has this thing for huge coats, that I don't get.

Robert's designs have been far more inspired. I don't know what the hell happened with that parka, or the skirt slit, but far more insync with INC.'s clients.

I actually thought both were horrible. I just expected more from Robert.

Bonnie's pants made me itchy just looking at them.
post #115 of 739
I'm surprised no one has mentioned my favorite Tim comment of the episode: calling Bonnie's pants "diapery." Hey, my toddler resembles that remark!

I actually didn't like any of the designs, really. I just can't get into the whole short jacket/long top thing.

I was totally unsurprised at Keith's dismissal. I'd been avoiding spoilers, but had a hunch it'd be him, and for some relatively boring offense. I had to laugh at Tim's utter seriousness in delivering the news: "We know that you are in possession of..." (What...injectable drugs? porn? unfashionable shoes?) No! "...pattern-making books."

Angela can make something besides a mushroom skirt? Who knew? Darn her!

I liked the top 2 designs actually, but do agree on the long top short jacket thing. I could never wear it, dont really get it, think it looks kind of weird. But, on the other hand, I am intrigued as well.

What I didnt get were the straps to the tank top hanging down around the waist on Jeffery and Allison's design. I suppose it was intended to look super modern-y and really cutting edge, I thought it just looked kinda weird. I still liked their design though.

And thank god there were no more puff skirts! I hated those back in the 80's when I was in high school, still hate them now!

So glad I'm not the only one who couldn't understand that... I was actually going to ask here what the deal was with that...
post #118 of 739
I couldn't figure out those hanging straps either! Weird.

Maybe I missed something, but I was unclear as to whether Keith's haggling at Mood had anything to do with his dismissal. Though I suppose he had enough strikes against him already, but I kind of expected them to mention that that sort of bargaining is a no-no. Or so I assume, given the Kara Saun shoe hoo-hah from Season 1.

Ditto on the hanging straps :

I was at Macy's Saturday and as I walked through a rosette caught my eye...

Yes, the winning outfit already mass produced on the racks w/ a sign "as seen on project runway". It was OK but nothing special when compared to other designs in the store.
