Geo58 Former NFL Pro Bowl Junior Seau dead at 43
Well, last night’s episode of Project Runway was a first. Okay LL Cool J. was on the show as guest judge and launching his new album and clothing line. The challenge was to make a design for another designer in the group. So Tim Gunn picks out who will be designing for who and what form of music the theme of each design will be.
So each designer has a hour consultation with their fellow designer and client and go shopping with a budget of $150 and a day and 1/2 for design work and make-up at the Tresses Fashion and Make-up Studio.
I was disappointed at how Jerrell and Korto? are giving bad information to Kenley and Suede when they make their designs telling them when asked if the design is good or not, when it isn’t. There is much at stake in these final episodes with five designers and Suede for the third time on the chopping block, this time with Kenley was given the “old heave ho” by Heidi Klum.
I was also concerned for Heidi Klum this week because I heard that she was injured while presenting the Emmy Awards. I know that last night’s show was taped ahead of time but the live finale is coming up shortly. My best wishes for Heidi’s safe recovery.
Here’s how it went down: Jerell makes a fashion design for Kenley and the theme is “Pop Music.”
Jerell’s design should have won, the judges loved it, it was “sexy”, pop rock, Nina loved Kenley’s hair, mini shorts and see thru silky top. LL cool J. Loved it too! I see him in the finals and his collection would be amazing to see.
Kenley makes a design for Leanne and the music theme is “Hip Hop.”
Kenley first comment when Leanne hits the runway floor is, “Leanne isn’t “hip hop” blaming someone else for her lack of expertise, did she even try and coach Leanne before hand? All the other designers made compliments about their own work. Kenley had all sots of problems including the “unflattering pants” that didn’t fit Leanne. She even complained to Nina which I believe gave her the edge over Suede in the final cut, because Nina made a comment, “she was confused” and I think the designers may want to see what she can create at Bryant Park. I am sorry for Kenley fans but she acts more like a “cry baby” then a fashion designer, I love how she designs women’s dresses and she could specialize in them but I don’t see her making the next cut for Bryant Park unless the judges allow four designers for the finale like they did two seasons ago, I believe that’s what they are going to do like last year, have four designers show their collections and the judges vote on the last two for the third spot on the Runway Show at Bryant Park.
Plus, disrespecting Tim Gunn and telling the fans that “he doesn’t know what “Hip Hop” is, I think cost her allot, it was rude and I never seen another designer on all the seasons of Project Runway, (sure they have made awesome impersonations of him and he loved the joke) and sure some have stated that they didn’t want to use his advice but to be so rude right to his face, it was sad to see.
Leanne make a fashion statement for Korto and the theme is “country music.”
Sorry Leanne, this was not “country music” I would have dressed Korto in a traditional plaid country skirt, not a long dress, tall cowboy hat, I would have picked up some six guns and a gun holster at the fabric store or asked Tim if he could find some for the design. Maybe the purple color top I would have left because I loved the colors but I am disappointed at how “out-of-touch” some of these fashion designers are with traditional or non-traditional designs. Why didn’t she get it? I love her past work but another flop like this and Leanne would have been gone, and I want her to make Bryant Park because I can’t wait to see what she can do with a complete collection of fashions.
Korto makes a winning design for Suede and the theme is “Punk Rock.”
Korto nails the challenge as LL Cool J. commented and sealed her victory. She seemed to be the only one who really made an effort in her design for Suede. She bleached the pants, chains attached to the shirt, bleached the boots, eye shadow, punk rock hair, “he looked like Marilyn Mason” as Nina Garcia stated. She went over the top and the design were better than Jerell’s I have to admit.
Suede’s design for Jerell was “too safe” no transformation as Heidi Klum stated, it needed more accessories, more uumph! The vest, pants? Aerosmith?
Where was the guitar, or the tall hat? Or the fur vest, or something else? Three times on the final pair cost him the exit door. It’s was disappointing because Suede was unique, when he started in the beginning I was hoping he would make it all the way; however making the final five is not an easy feat for any runway designer, so I give him all the credit in the world. He seemed to stall in the last three episodes and I predict you will see Suede in the future, I believe maybe something is bothering him now and in a couple of years he will soar like an eagle. Who knows what the future holds for Suede? Tonight was a great show and waht a concept, making a design for another designer, I just wished it was a different theme and maybe the result would have been totally different.
