Project Runway: Casanova and Gretchen
Hideous shoe alert.
Throw tomatoes if you want, but we admired Gretchen in this episode. Look, we’re not diminishing her performance of last week, but if she was really the bitch and the self-centered drama queen we’ve all been saying she is, then she wouldn’t have had the capability to put aside whatever she might have been feeling about Tim’s outburst last week. That she still valued his opinion of her work and didn’t want past difficulties to get in the way of that is pretty mature and open-minded of her.
Without the weird tank top, she could have had something. Say what you will about her work, her instincts are usually pretty good (at least when she’s not trying to elect herself team leader). We don’t understand the thinking behind this one at all.
What did they do to that poor girl’s hair? When a girl’s got an afro as fine as that, you leave it alone. You don’t do her up like a backup singer for Debarge.
Tim Gunn’s Workroom:
Tomorrow, the finalists and the decoys will be showing their collections at Lincoln Center (we have to stop ourselves from typing “Bryant Park” all the time). Here’s the game plan: we will be in the tent, tweeting away to our hearts’ content. We will have an open post set up here on the blog where you can read each tweet as it pops up and comment away on the blog. After the show, we will rush back to Laura’s place and will be obsessively checking online until the pictures start showing up. Then, we’ll put up a post for each designer’s collection. This is an ongoing process because the pictures don’t become available all at once, so we’re asking for your patience on this one. By mid to late afternoon, all the dresses from all ten collections will be up. We get a lot of new visitors on finale day and a lot of them don’t understand this. Since we’re going to be so busy, we’re deputizing all of our minions. Please explain the process to the newbies as they come. And please don’t link to other sites that have the pictures. We know you’ll be dying to see them, but that’s kind of rude when we’re working so hard to get them to you. Besides, we always have the full collections up faster than anyone else.
In the meantime, here we sit, in Laura’s apartment, waiting for a bunch of PR alums to show up for a little impromptu party she decided to throw. Oh, look. There’s Uli. Gotta go, bitches! Your jealousy tastes like candy!
