OK, just a few quick thoughts on the show. The challenge was to design an outfit for a 'trendsetting jetsetter'. The jetsetter turns out to be the designers themselves, and they have to make an outfit that they could wear to jump on a plane and go to a party or event in.
They modeled their own garments and then after the usual runway critique, they are told to go pack their bags and go to the airport. At the airport they find out that they are going to Paris. In Paris, they end up at the French branch of Parsons school of Fashion. Some French designer critiques their outfits, which they did wear on the plane, and then someone gets the boot and has to fly right back to the US, while the others stay to do the next competition in Paris.
Jeffrey le douche wins with a poser rock star outfit. He's a jerk, but the outfit did look good. I would have preferred to see Michael or Laura win, both designed a true jetsetter look, rather than a costume for a performer. Laura did a pretty, pale jersey halter dress with wrap at waist. Michael did an all white outfit that perfectly suited his style. The pants were made out of seersucker. Yeah, I would have thought seersucker a strange choice for mens pants, but they looked great.
Uli got a tongue lashing for being too tropical, and for making too many of the same style dresses. Vincent is obviously being drug along in the competition for some reason. The PR boards are talking about a comment that Heidi made about winning a competition being important later on. So the theory is that he was given the win last week for a future competition.
Angela was out. She made a funky little Angela outfit from silk linen, which wrinkled and caused hemorrhaging among the judges. She put 2 of her wacky little rosettes on the behind of the pants and did this weird half circle top stitching around the lower behind. She might as well have put a sign on her back that said 'look at my wrinkled behind'. The French judge said she was from 'Out of this world' After disliking so many of her designs, I was a bit said to see her go, I guess I was starting to like her. Vincent should have gone before her.
Sheesh, I had to come back and add to the post because I forgot Kayne! He made an outfit that looked like something Versace would have made for Elvis. I kept trying to think that it wasn't that bad, but it was a bit gaudy. He's been struggling the past two competitions, I hope he gets back on his mark soon.
Last night the show announced a competition where the viewers can vote for their favorite designer, even booted designers. The viewer's choice winner will receive $10,000. I'm not sure who I'll vote for yet. You can vote here -
