Project Runway: She's a Pole Dancer in Dubai (Season 8, Episode 1)
Anyways this season, my BFF Geoff the Fabulous and I will be giving you our opinions on each weeks episode every Tuesday. Yes, PR comes on Thursday nights, but G-Fab and I have busy lives so we need time to watch it on Tivo and then digest it. Get off our asses
Challenge: make a garment using a competitors piece of clothing. I give this one corn husk dress (out of 5). I mean its fairely easy. They are making clothes out of clothes. Nothing challenging like making a dress out of flowers or car parts or candy wrappers.
So some people got sucky garments. Peach got a knit scarf that she couldn't work with. Jason got a Kimono that he turned into a weird ass straight-jacket. Ivy got some flower-print pants she didn't do a damn with (and sweetheart, never argue with the judges. Its a bad idea). Then there was Casanova; whose dress inspired Michael Kors to say it was something a "pole dancer in Dubai" would wear. I think Nina Garcia actually threw up a little in her mouth when she saw it on the runway. Then there was Mondo- who annoyed the hell out of me but actually had a pretty adorable dress. But who the fuck names their child "Mondo" I mean it sounds like a bad disease where you break out in pustules or something.
Like a typical PR episode I thought the judges got shit all wrong. I loved Mckell's little blue dress. I thought it was absolutely adorable and i would have worn it, side-boob and all! Michael C. had cute dress with pink top and black skirt that i thought was brilliantly simplistic- luckily he was safe. I thought the winner-Gretchen's dress looked like something a 1940's school marm would wear. I mean it was dowdy and old-looking. In a fashion tragedy- Mckell was out over some pieces that seriously would have Joan Rivers mocking you for life.
