S13E12 “Who’s In And Who’s Out”
By Princess Pindy
I watched the preview to get pumped up for tonight’s episode. It shows the designers being challenged with taking a losing design and remaking it into a winning design. Contestants that have been given the boot return to help out the designer that picked their losing look. They show Korina coming back with a bad attitude because she has to work with Char. At first I thought it was production manipulation to cause drama. Who could blame me? As I watched a longer preview I realized that the designers got to choose which look to make over and Char chose Korina’s look. I don’t know what Char’s motivation was….but I felt that Korina was being honest about it being “too soon” to come back and help Char after what had happened last week. I completely understand where Korina is coming from. I also know that she signed up for this show and “dems da breaks.” So I am going to see how I feel when I start watching. “Fair Warning”* I am going to take a muscle relaxer about an hour before I watch because my shoulder is in bad shape. I would take it now but then the blog would end here, lol! So how I “feel” about the situation could change…. I also don’t feel bad about not watching the second part of “The Tre & Joe Don’t Know Show” because I am done watching those two thieves. Eleven F*ing MILLION Dollars….are you kidding me?? It just is unfathomable. Think about it next time you pay your bills……next time you look at something longingly and then put it back on the shelf because, “Ehhhh, I don’t really need it.” It works out to be about a million a month for her, smh!!
Back to our show…
Tim is banging on the doors at Gotham Apartments and tells both the women and the men to meet him up on the rooftop. “On the roof, it’s peaceful as can be and there the world below don’t bother me.” Five designers are left. Tim is on the roof with Lexus Corporate Marketing Manager Brian Bolain…He is the LEXUS man.. HERE is the Lexus challenge!!! The Shameless Plug of the Week!!! YAY!!! Create a look that is Street Chic…. They are going out in Lexus Luxury vehicles with a driver. They will get cameras and 2 days and $200 to spend at Mood.
So all the designers talk about the car and how great it is, shock, didn’t see that one coming. They go out on the street and take pictures to get “inspiration” and then back in their Lexus Luxury vehicles. They are off to Mood…where we all know, looks are made or fail with the pick of fabric. And I have not been impressed yet with any of the choices they have made…..and this week isn’t going to be any different. Sean picked a green that I hope he doesn’t use. Amanda’s colors, well the one reminds me of Star Trek costume I made, ugly gold knit. The designers take a food break and there is a flashback to Char and Korina from last week and the designers are eating and smack talking about Korina and her emotions…but they aren’t wrong though, lol. They are all lighthearted with her out!
They come back to the workroom and there are mannequins with “Five big losers” as Amanda says. They are all losing looks from gone designers. The designers all groan… What is going to happen they all wonder??? Tim comes in and has his button bag…hmmmm, maybe it really wasn’t Char’s choice exactly. They have to take the losing look and turn it into a winning look… simultaneously, it doesn’t need to be cohesive with their Lexus Look. They get $100 for Mood. Oh, the names in the button bag are the remaining designers and they get to pick which look to redesign. Char was second and she said she picked Korina’s because it had the most fabric. No ulterior motives or set up. (unless you count the fact that they are bringing Korina back at all, lol) So that is all cleared up in my mind.
Sean gets Sandhya’s, clown American Girl look and pumps the mannequin in the air a few times and chants “devil baby, devil baby “, it’s funny or could be the muscle relaxer. So off to Mood for the last time!!
So now is when Tim brings in the “out” (I am having a hard time with lose, loose, losers, loosing, looser, so they are just OUT) designers to help with all the work they need to do. Korina is already not happy to be there. They are there to assist on either look. Wow, Korina is on the edge. She looks so angry but I think she is trying not to cry, IPPHO. (commercial break)
Korina explains that she is still upset and doesn’t think that she could put her best effort towards helping Char and that she should not be there. Tim just stares for a minute and tells her it is perfectly fine. So she is out again… cut to footage of Korina walking down every corridor in the building and opening every door there is just to GTFO!!! Like I said you signed up for this and she is really showing her immaturity. Like Amanda said, the judges sent her home, not Char. Char was willing to work with her… This is sad, I don’t like Korina’s personality and her designs weren’t my favorite and with that said,..she will only be remembered for her childish, spoiled, entitled behavior. In a few years she will be known as “Oh, you mean the bitchy one who thought she was better than everyone else and left because she didn’t want to help?” Oh well, not my problem..
Tim is off to find Char a new helper and everyone is working, working, working. Tim walks in with Alexander to help Char. So now everyone is happy, oh, except Korina, hahaha.
Tim is going around to see what the designers are doing. He gives Char some good advice but she ignores it. He likes what Amanda is doing. And once again he has an awkward interaction with Emily. I don’t know if it is because he is trying to be nice and is too subtle or if he knows she is not going to listen so why push. Their consultations are so odd to me. IPPHO, I think Tim is just done with her, she doesn’t hear what he says. Tim thinks you could go to Michael Kors and buy what Kini has made. Tim tells Sean that his outfit is looking like a uniform for a service worker. Also, he thinks his redesign dress looks cheap. So the guys need to “Make it work.”
Time is ticking in the Workroom and Sean is reworking his look. Emily is doing exactly what she wants, which is not the redesign. The models are very excited to see the “out” designers!!!! YAY!!! I think Sean is listening too much to Sandhya on the redesign. It looks like another one of her monstrosities. Speaking of monstrosities, I don’t know WTF Amanda is making for her street chic look. So they are all doing their last minute crazy making fittings and of course hair and make-up by what were those companies again…oh yeah, Phillip B and Mary Kay, 😉
This runway show determines who moves forward to show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The guest judge is Shay Mitchell, I know, who?? Google tells me not a hell of a lot…oh, she is on “Pretty Little Liars”, don’t watch. I am not the target demographic of that show, even though I do watch Teen Wolf.
Amanda; I don’t like her look, IPPHO, it is ugly. I like her redesign, I think it is cool, I liked Fade and you can see him in the outfit, well not “IN” the outfit, his style. Emily; Wow, I thought Amanda’s was ugly, I didn’t know ugly until Emily’s look came on the catwalk. The judge’s faces say it all. I like her redesigned look better than her original design. It was a pretty dress. Sean; His look is really nice… I like it, I really, really like it. The redesigned clown outfit is bad…and he added fringe, or he let Sandhya add fringe. It would be better without the fringe. Although as the model was walking away I liked how the fringe moved but again, that could be the muscle relaxer. Char; I like the skirt if the attached piece were done better. It was a good idea, I am not sure it was executed properly or as well as it could have been. The redesigned look is that hideous poncho that Korina made and she turned it into a dress that is pretty nondescript, yawn. Kini; I think he knocked it out of the park. The trench coat is beautiful and the skirt is really cool, can’t wait to see the up close look! The redesign is WOW, WOW, I said wow a few more times but I don’t need to type them, lol. That red dress was simple, elegant and what a transformation. He rocks!!
IN THE JUDGE’S OPINION (or what mean bitchy things can we say to break them this week)
Kini is first and Heidi and Shay are loving the trench and the top but don’t like it with the skirt. Nina thinks it is too much together. Zac thinks he needs to edit and that what he did with the red dress proves that point. Zac loves the dress and so do the other judges. Emily is up next and Heidi doesn’t mind the street look but it might not have been too smart to do it, might read pajama. They have her take off the hoodie and it’s a cute outfit. Zac felt the hoodie made it look “homeless”… (It is so much better without the hoodie!!!) But Nina thinks it looks like a Circ de Solie costume. Nina thinks the redesign doesn’t look like Emily’s look. Zac doesn’t think either look is runway ready. Amanda is told by Nina that her street chic look is amazing…walks beautifully and loves it…(oy) Heidi loves the street chic. Zac is a big fan. They really don’t like the redesign. Char; Nina says she has a nice eye for color. Nina thinks there is a lot going on and it is too much. And Zac agrees with me as far as the execution of her skirt. (I can sleep well tonight!) They don’t like her redesign. Sean; Heidi thinks the white look is spectacular. She has never seen anything like it. Shay loves it. Nina thinks it is one of the best pieces she has seen on Project Runway. Zac says it’s sublime, modern, he’s blown away. The redesign they think is silly and just bad.
The designers all tell why they should go to Fashion Week. The judges are trying to decide if there could be a fourth spot….This is it…
Emily is OUT… I am surprised she lasted in this competition as long as she did.
Sean is IN!
Amanda is IN!
Char…..is she in or is she out, will Korina’s head explode???? OMG, Char is IN!!
What was that sound I just heard KABOOM!!! Oh no, Korina’s head just exploded……
