Team Brown Sugar
When we did the Meet the Designers posts for season 7, we indicated that we thought Jesse had the potential to be a little douchey and the general consensus in the comments was that we were horrible people for saying so. Cue the most recent “Auf-Wiedersehen” post, which is coming up on 300 comments, most of which are about what a douche Jesse was this past episode.
When we did Seth Aaron’s MTD post, and when we did the post about his first dress, we said we thought he was talented and we couldn’t understand why everyone was acting so negatively toward him. Once again, there were a lot of comments to the contrary and once again, we were right, bitches. You can disagree on the talented part if he’s not to your taste, but he was a total sweetheart of a team mate and in the end, when it was obvious that his team was looking at the chopping block, he manned up even when he didn’t have to.
The moral of the story? Listen to T Lo, kittens. No one can prejudge like we can.
They really were kind of an adorable team because despite the fact that their aesthetics and work styles were totally at odds with each other, they still managed to get along. Even when they were bickering, it was a cute kind of bickering. Come on, that “Don’t act up in front of company” line was PRICELESS.
Too bad the results didn’t measure up.
Look, innovation is not the be-all and end-all of the fashion world. Most really successful fashion designers aren’t particularly innovative. But, this isn’t the fashion world. This is Project Runway, which is essentially a fashion game show. In the world of PR, innovation is king because it is after all, a design competition and you are dealing with a panel of judges who’ve pretty much seen it all when it comes to fashion. So no, not a horrible dress (not a great one either), but it was obvious from the get-go that this was not the kind of dress that impresses Nina.
And they honestly might have skated by if they hadn’t sent this ill-advised mess down the runway. We realize that they weren’t supposed to copy the original exactly, but what they wound up with just looked incredibly basic and cheap next to Jesus and Amy’s original.
That lace had to have been awfully cheap because 1) it looks it, and 2) they only had 50 bucks for the whole look. We also don’t like the color of the underlay. We guess it was supposed to look nude, but it just comes off dingy.
And the back, kittens. How awful is that? We doubt very much that her ass is huge but it sure looks it in this dress. And since the underlay almost matches her skin tone, from the back she looks awfully saggy and wrinkly.
But as per usual, no criticism we make can even compare to the master.
Do you want to know why?”
“It cried for your poor models, forced to look ugly on national television. It cried for the crime you committed against 500 dollars worth of fabric. It cried for all of the other hopefuls who wanted to be on Project Runway but were rejected so you could be here to make ugly dresses. But mostly…”
“Mostly, my soul cried out in pain because you have made me look at something ugly and no one should ever make me look at something ugly. My entire adult life has been about ensuring that I would never have to look at ugly things.
So you see, you haven’t just made two ugly dresses, you have wounded me to my very soul and trampled over my life’s work and for what? So you could squeeze by and make it here another week? Was it worth it to you? Was it worth committing a crime against all that is beautiful and aesthetically pleasing in the world, just so you can have one more shot at a measly 100 grand?
I want you to think — REALLY think — about what you have done here today and the hundreds of thousands of people whose souls also cried out in horror and pain at what you have done. You have committed a fashionpocalypse. I hope you can live with yourselves.”
