Last week I had nothing to say about Project Runway, not because it was boring, but because I was apparently stunned into silence by the rosettes on the back of Angela’s silk capri pants. Angela had flashes of talent along the way, but in the end the rosettes did her in. Pun completely intentional.
Watching Project Runway this week, I learned one thing if nothing else. I do not pronounce haute couture properly. You can blame it on the fact that I never really have the need to use the term haute couture seeing as how it’s not something Gap or Banana Republic carries, in addition to the fact that I grew up in Southeast Texas. That “hot cocher” is some fancy stuff.
I was so glad to see Vincent go last night. He should have been gone long ago and if I had to spend one more week listening to what “turns him on”, I was going to be ready to turn PR off. I did crack up at him schmoozing Catherine Malandrino as if that was going to save him. “You’re fabulous, your shoes are fabulous, your dress is fabulous” and I kept waiting for him to tell her she turns him on, but it didn’t happen.
Although I don’t care for Jeffrey, his dress was the only one in my opinion, that truly looked like something you’d see on the runway. While bright yellow cotton plaid isn’t my first choice for an evening gown, it was edgy, fun and modern. I think the judges made the right call, but I so don’t want Jeffrey to win.
Michael’s dress was not great, but I think he should get an A for effort. At least he tried something new. To me, Uli designs the same dress every week but in different fabric. I know the judges liked her dress, but I am sick of those braidy things she has going on. Is it just me?
Kayne needs to stick around because he provides comedy. When they showed him in his beret last night with that drawn on mustache, I laughed out loud. But honestly, I think his talent is designing pageant gowns. He’s flamboyant and quite Elvis-y which doesn’t really translate to high fashion.
And poor Laura with her shirt tied up around her pregnant belly. She just looks miserable. I think she’s just trying to stay in the competition because no matter how stressful it is to be up all hours of the night designing and sewing, it’s got to be more peaceful than being at home with 5 kids and one on the way. Again, just my opinion and what do I know? I can’t even pronounce haute couture.
