Ivy: What a B---H! Yeah. That's what I think. Oh I could go on and on about why I think she's one but I won't. I think you all can guess why.
Oh there were so much drama last night. When I saw the previews last week I was sure they were playing it up but they really weren't. It was all quite accurate. The designers were asked to make three looks and contestants who had left came back to help finish them in time.
How about Mondo? I don't quite understand why he was so mad. I mean Heidi is your boss. Why would you huff and puff to her face about her simple critiques. There were other guests who have come into the workroom and given criticism without getting so much attitude. So why did he 'freak out' when Heidi critiqued his stuff? It was out of character. And wondered if something else had happened that we are unaware of.
Which brings me to the Michael issue. I never really understood why all the cast haaaated him. Then last night it was revealed that they had all suspected him of cheating all the way back to the Jackie O episode. Apparently, there was tape found in the bathroom. Am I correct? And they thought it was his? Not sure why though.
Yes, it is a case of he said, she said. I can't say I'm sure he wouldn't do that. But I'm certainly not going to trust Ivy (who also accused Michael of telling people not to vote for her). I guess she's trying to go out with a bang. Why don't they just ask Linka? She would know. Correct? And furthermore, who cares! It's topstick tape. I still don't really think it should banned anyway. Celebrities wear it on the runway all the time. Maybe they should instead limit the amount of tape you can use.
I still am rooting for Michael. If anything, Ivy's behavior has made me want him to succeed even more. I really developed a bad taste for her when she was making her rounds trying to pit everyone against him. Brian and I were watching the whole 'sewing room' debacle and both of us could not understand why Christopher and Michael D. were siding with Ivy! She was being such a bully and a poor loser. Looks soooooo bad. And yeah, her last dress sucked. Big time.
How about Heidi's little remark in the workroom? "And that from someone who has no idea how to sew. Who was it who said that said you couldn't sew? Ooooo I forgot she's not here anymore. laughs." Go Heidi. OH YES and how about when Ivy said the universe would give Michael what he deserves then they showed her getting nicked by the sewing machine. Too funny.
Onto the designs. These were made to be sold for 'real people'? First off, real people and Project Runway don't mix. Why even try? Andy's were fine. I guess I'm glad he won. I liked the little dress but seriously, who is going to wear a dress that short? And I thought this was 'activewear'. Like stuff you're going to pick up your kids from school in.
I wasn't that fond of April in this episode either. What was up with her and Gretchen bashing Valerie for talking too much. She also HATES Michael. Again, why? Whatever. If her attitude confused me, her clothes turned me off to her entirely. I don't know why it was in the top 3. Did the judges have rose colored glasses on? That look to the left is hideous. Would you ever wear that? She makes the same black gothy thing week after week and I'm starting to tire of her.
Mondo's was okay. But again I feel like I'm reiterating how I'm not super impressed with anything I saw. It doesn't have to be BIG to impress but none of the designs were very innovative. The head pieces were a nice touch for Mondo. I wouldn't wear them but it was a great way to infuse his personality into the toned down colors that they had to work with.
And can't forget the real "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong". Gretchen can NOT take criticism. Not ever. Have you ever seen her accept any without an 'I disagree' or a lengthy explanation? A simple 'Okay' will suffice. Again, I feel like the word 'wheatgrass' defines her style. She seems to think it's "hip". I think 'hippie' describes it better. But....more modern hippie.
Believe it or not I liked Christopher's stuff. Not so much the butterfly zip up. But I liked the pants with the slit up the inside to the knee with the little ties at the bottom. I thought it looked cute. I liked how it wasn't on the outside of the leg. And his ruched pant to the left wasn't too shabby either.
If you didn't watch the episode it was him and Michael on the chopping block and Christopher didn't make the cut. Although I liked his collection better than Michael's, I'm not surprised. Did Christopher ever win a challenge? Maybe? I can't remember. I just had a feeling he would be next.
Here's my prediction on how the next few weeks will go....Michael next, then April. So Andy, Gretchen and Mondo will be left for Bryant Park. And the winner will be...................MONDO! That's my guess.
