Project Runway: I Take New York From the Balls (8.7)
|Andy's bikini and wrap|
Challenge: Design resort wear, then Tim came in with the velvet bag of doom and told all the designers they would be designing their clothes, but that someone else would actually be executing the look. I give this 3 corn husk dresses out of 5, because its hard to work with someone else's skill set.
Anyways, from the moment the magic velvet bag of doom came out everyone start complaining they didn't want Michael C. Apparently, despite his two wins (which is 2 more than half the people on the show) Michael C. sews like a blind man with arthritis. And who was the lucky winner of working with the walking target? Mondo.
Hitler Gretchen talked to Casanova like he was a deranged seven-year old, causing Casanova to quip "She believed that i am a retard." Valerie and Andy seemed to have the best team dynamic because they both respected each others skill set. That is until Valerie had a nervous breakdown when Tim and Michael Kors came by to do critiques. Listen, i love Valerie- she is one of my early season picks to make it to the finale. But she does pick some god- awful colors for clothes, and to be honest the tape-measurer as a headband look is only going to take you so far.

Then there was Hitler Gretchen's jumpsuit monstrosity. Okay, the bitch loves a jumpsuit- I get it. But did she have to use the worlds ugliest color combination and then make her model look pregnant. Only Hitler Gretchen could make a size 2 model look like a size 20. I mean her jumpsuit even made her model look like she had a fat ass. It should have been auf'ed just for doing that. Also it made her model's boobs look like they were down by her belly-button, because that's so flattering right? April's outfit looked more like bad lingerie than a resortwear look. Valerie only managed to squeak by because the top of her outfit was weird and the bottoms weren't much better. Casanova got reamed for designing old lady clothes again, although i didn't think his outfit was that bad. Yes, it was a boring color scheme and it was more work wear than resort wear and it was made for an older clientele. But listen, 50 is the new 30 and old bitches want to look stylish too and Casanova made an outfit that would have worked for that.
And then the judges were obviously doing acid during judging because they loved April and Michael Ds design, and hated Mondo's and Casanova's. And there were way way way worse designs that Mondo's and Casanova's (cough cough Gretchen). This is the second season in a row where i have to question the Holy Fashion Trinity's taste level. It's like somewhere after season 5, they just stopped caring about what was good and started caring about driving the viewers totally up the wall.
