all remaining Project Runway designers
Ooh la la. The sky is so blue. The bridges on the Seine are so graceful. I’m ready to.
Wait I’m sorry. This isn’t about Paris, or me. It’s about ‘Project Runway’ heading to the fashion capital. But as soon as they revealed this week’s destination, my head was in the clouds.
That has to be the only excuse Kayne and Angela had for their dizzy, ditzy failures. When challenged to create "a hip international jetsetter" look for themselves with one day and $75 worth of fabric, they crashed. While running from runway to runway (Kennedy to Paris’ DeGaulle), Kayne would’ve been frisked by security for his terrifying caricature name in rhinestone buckle, bellbottoms and gasp flaming pink, purple and baby blue bird droppings on his shirt. So very Elvis. (He claimed it was Versace. I doubt it!)
Angela looked like she’d been checked in as baggage herself, when she arrived looking worse for wear: rosettes in a rose window pattern on wretchedly wrinkled and wide rust shorts, as an equally unflattering billowing top hung lifelessly over her hippie belt. (She called them "fun Angela details," but Tim nailed it, pegging them, "very junior. Very Holly Hobbie.") Even her visible black bra and cat eye glasses were crooked. And then: army boots! Talk about traveling poorly.
Still, she had a soulmate in guest judge and designer Catherine Malandrino, who loves hippie chic. And Malandrino slammed Kayne, saying, "You look like a fake pop star." But voila, when time for the French kiss off, she bid Angela "au revoir."
Jeffrey won the challenge, suggesting a fix was in. Was he given a makeup call for being robbed recently, despite absurd black pants that only Mick Jagger could and should get away with? By the time the jet landed, the seams on the back of his crinkled purple lapeled jacket already were gaping, and his rhinestone studded glasses looked silly. Meanwhile, there stood Michael, crisp and chic in seersucker cargo pants, collarless jacket and shirt all in fresh white, with just a hint of P. Diddy inspired diamond accessories. Now that’s true star quality.
And so was Laura’s suitcase: a hardcase Louis Vuitton. That alone equals a

But let’s not forget the great news: no more Angela! I guess Jeffrey will have to bicker with Laura again. Oh, well. We’ll always have Paris (at least through next

By the way, anyone for a new drinking game? Let’s sip some bubbly every time they repeat the name of the challenge like a maddening mantra. This week: "Hip International Jetsetter." Hic. Well, at least it’s helping me drown the pain of being left behind. Wednesdays on Bravo.
I won miss Angela, but I will miss the bickering between her and Jeffrey. I didn like Jeffrey creation at all. I thought Michael and Laura were much better, as well as travel worthy, although that color doesn do anything for Laura complexion or hair color. How pretty it would have been in an orchid! But the dress itself was very nice.
Hated both Angela and Kayne clothes. Tres yuck. Tim was a hoot and a half when he told Kayne he was seeing Elvis exactly my thoughts. They really need to listen to Tim. He calls it right almost every time.
Even though I wasn an Angela fan, I think they should have at least have given her a chance to sleep and a day to see the sights before sending her back. I wonder if the return was first class?
Oh, they probably sent Angela back on a multi connection flight. Surely, she was stuck in the middle of the five seat section, in the back of the plane, where the smokers congregate. Kids probably kicked her seat the entire trip.
The plane probably stood on the runway an extra hour or three.
But surely Project Runway let her stay a day or so in Paris!
You also raise a fun question: How would we improve upon a design?
I agree: Laura dress had so much possibility. But the pale hue made her looked washed out, and really made all her moles stand out. A slightly less clingy jersey and a navy or forest green and wow! I think she would been a showstopper. Especially if she mentioned the knot tying options!
I wonder too if they gave Jeffrey the win to make up for any so called oversights. But really, who would wear Jeff clothes? His design style has a very limited appeal and I can fathom why he even in this mix, other than to be the thorn in everyone side which appeals to those who like the tension. I don I want to get on with the design challenges and see the truely talented and gifted designer reveal themselves. Although, I must say, it looks as if Michael will defintely be among the top three. Laura classic, chic design style should keep her in the running also. I felt Angela should have been out some time ago, although she did manage to pull a couple of surprises out of her hat. But, the poor thing, she not a designer, she more of an augmentor. She likes to ornament her garments which is fine but it can be all that you can do. That why I not trying out for this show. I love to enhance something, but come up with an original idea???? Nahhhhhhh. Good bye for now Angela. Kayne better leave the costumes behind before he gets left behind and Vincent should have been auf in the first or second episode. NEXT!!?!?!
I thought Vincent did better this time than he done yet add a pair of Ray Bans and his crazy smile and he would have looked like Jack Nicholson. Plus his outfit traveled well which is more
fake ray bans than you can say for than most of them. Michael was perfect, as usual especially when he decided to turn the jacket into

But the judges are tiring of Uli one hit wonder style. I heard on Tim Podcast that Angela did get to stay the night and eat dinner in Paris. Also that they had to shoot the final Paris scene repeatedly because the designer was too mean in her comments to Kayne and Angela, which explains why Kayne looked so dejected; he heard her critique 5 or 6 times. Au revoir next week, Kayne! (Can he find tacky fabric in Paris?)
I love a group of folks that like to tell how they really feel! LOL
I have to admit, Angela lost her mind designing that outfit, and for thinking that a would actually touch it, much less wear it.
She heard the critique/warning given to Robert B. from the judges earlier about linen, and its lack of translation to the runway. What, she didn think that fact pertained to her? DUH!
While I can appreciate her hippy chic style, it had no place in that arena. Pity.
Jeffery has taken a page from Mr. Rice, the more controversy you can stir, the less they actually look at what you producing, and the better TV you are. Period. He a hack.Articles Connexes：
