S13E5 “The Klum Of Doom”
By Princess Pindy
Tonight’s episode of Project Runway is a challenge to make a look for Heidi to wear to a Red Carpet Event. The 2014 Creative Art Emmys. There have been pictures online this past week of Heidi wearing a “Blue string” dress and rumors that this is the dress from this challenge (and it wasn’t Amanda that made it, lol). We will see if this is true. The guest judge is Lindsay Vonn. She is the Olympic Gold Medal winning skier that is dating Tiger Woods, so already I am not at all impressed with her taste or choices.
The designers must mix their point of view with Heidi’s style. She says she likes unexpected, fearless, fashion forward and does not want to be on the worst dressed list. Amanda has immunity from winning last week’s challenge. The designers are exited. Tim feels the need to say that it is an elegant and sophisticated event, “Mitchell”, yep, Tim called him out. They get a half hour to sketch and then it is off to Mood with $250 and they have one day. Tim tells them, “The success of our challenges begin and end at Mood.” and I agree, they have all picked such hideous fabrics in past challenges, even for additional fabric, IPPHO…I hope this is a different, but it won’t be. The best indicator of future behavior is past behavior.
*****Sean is designing a blue fringe, floor length gown and that is the dress that she wore to the CA Emmys so we know who won, lol.******
TIME WITH TIM AND HEIDI
LOL, they had thunder sound effects when Heidi walks in.
Heidi is going to be wearing this look and she is taking NO PRISONERS!!! I think we are seeing the real Heidi, IPPHO. She is being brutal and honest, in other words, or the same words, brutally honest!!! She doesn’t like much of anything she has seen and I don’t really blame her. I’m just not impressed with these designers. Tim was right, it comes down to what they choose at Mood and they ‘chose poorly.” I just don’t understand why they pick such ugly, dull fabric. I don’t know what is in their heads, they got a dossier of her past looks….wth?? Most of the designers are struggling.
SHeee’s back…..Heidi is scared and that they need to start over…so they are going back to Mood. They each get $100 and 20 minutes to shop. You don’t have to go and can give your $100 to another designer… Sandhya goes around asking everyone that is not going for their money….before anyone else can..she ends up with $400 and being able to buy $120 a yard fabric… Emily is not happy with the second chance, she feels that the designers should have picked the right fabric the first time, I agree.
A lot of the designers are really having a hard time with this challenge, even after getting new fabric. There also seems to be a undercurrent of anger towards Sandhya from those who know what she did and how much she spent. But hey, she hustled and asked them for the money, they could have said no or asked for the money themselves. We know she didn’t win, ha!! The last two hours of trying to get the looks done and hair and make-up is fairly frantic. I feel so bad for them all and know the stress they are feeling, I don’t have to imagine, haha!! With ten minutes left there are looks that are complete and then there are looks that no amount of time would help. This is sad. I am really disappointed in this group of designers, truth be told. Even more disappointing, I am feeling sorry for Mitchell
THE RUNWAY – IPPHO
Char is first, it looks pretty but it is nothing new!!! Emily’s dress is very short but it looks like a cave man dress. Mitchell, his look is a “hot mess express”, lol. Korina, it looks like a first sewing project, it is bad. Fade, I like his dress but some of the seams don’t match, stripes need to match. Alexander’s dress the back is SO short, not good at all. Sandhya, it is nothing special, the material is doing all the work, not the design, nothing new. Samantha’s look is not bad. Kristine’s is a boob fest, it is bad, poorly made. Kini’s look… something is off with the hips, they look weird. Maybe I’m just not use to seeing a model with some booty and hips. Sean, a breath of fresh air in this lineup of farts. It is beautiful. Yes, I said farts, I was trying to wax poetically and be all “Writer Girl” but the stuff coming down the runway was pure shit, so farts seemed appropriate! Amanda’s beaded dress is too heavy on the beading, it’s pretty but off.
TOP AND BOTTOM
Kristine, Kini, Korina, Sean, Mitchell, Amanda are the six that had the best and worst. We know Sean won, and I think Amanda is in the top, Kini might be in the top too, but I thought there was something funky with his seams. But Korina and Kristine are definitely in the bottom and Mitchell is a self described, “Hot Mess Express”…stop making me like you Mitchell!!!
The Judges say:
Kini,~ Heidi, fantastic, $1000s of dollars, gave drama, Lindsay thinks it is stunning. Nina thinks it hugs incredible, well done. Zac’s highest score.
Amanda, ~Heidi, thinks it is beautiful, Zac, allergic reaction to the beads. Nina, blah, blah, blah.
Kristine,~ Sac, boob canyon, Lindsay devil wears Prada, Zac indecent exposure, Nina like paneling if done properly it would have looked well, badly executed. Heidi, too sexy. (I never thought I would hear that from her, she really meant that it looked unfinished and I wouldn’t be caught dead in that piece of crap.)
Mitchell,~ “the fabric beat me up” Oh Mitchell, that is so cute and it is so true… Heidi, back is rough hurts my eyes. Lindsay, tried too hard. Nina, this red looks like a Christmas ornament, matronly, unflattering. Zac, you were out of your element.
Sean ~ Lindsay, different, beautiful. Zac loves it everything about it. Nina, was worried it would make her look bigger, bareness in the back balances out the heavy of the fringe.
Korina~ Nina, doesn’t know where to start, old lady. Heidi doesn’t like the color. Zac wouldn’t wear it either. I think he would, lol.
I didn’t get everything Lindsay said, she was dull, dull, dull!!
UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL
Basically, the three top looks are well made, no surprise there. The three bottom looks are as Nina says were, “Amateur Hour.” They are really, really, badly constructed and the designs are just not good. Zac seemed less touchy, feely this week.
THE WINNER AND THE LOSER
We already know the winner is Sean….and Kini and Amanda are safe. Mitchell is out, 😦 I am sad!!! Kristine is out too!!!! WOW, two out…good!! Korina is safe, but barely.
