Project Runway - I don't know what to say

Yeah! Michael won again. He should def be in the final 3.
Boo! Alison is out and Vincent stays? What?

I don't know what to say because I was very tired last night for some reason. I was struggling with heavy eyelids to try to stay awake during the show. So, I wasn't as observant as usual, I might add more notes to this review after I see the show again. I also don't know what to say because how can Vincent still be here and Alison be gone? Maybe I dozed off, maybe that was part of a very sleepy bad dream? No it wasn't. I was suddenly wide awake, sitting up and yelling at the tv when I realized that Alison was going to be the one out.

From the beginning. The challenge was to make a garment from recycle materials - paper, plastic, mylar and lame (I didn't know lame was a recycle material) Most of the results looked odd, some slightly wearable. Uli & Robert used lame for their dresses and thankfully Robert's looked like something that you would expect from him and he was safe. Angela used a colorful mylar to make a basketweave fabric treatment. That part of the dress actually looked good, but the cut of the dress itself was bad, a racer top jumper dress over a tube top. It was enough to keep her safe.
Kayne designed a gown for Miss intergalactic 2099 that was really gaudy. He cut it down and changed it, but it was still glittery and gaudy. Jeffrey made an interesting dress out of newspaper which he painted, so that it didn't look like newspaper, it almost looked like a regular dress. But it looked exactly like every other dress that he has made so far. So his use of material was very good, but the dress was a repeat.
Michael made a dress that almost looked like regular clothing with a lame halter style top, white skirt that I think was plastic and a clear plastic wrap, which I didn't really like. His outfit didn't really stand out as a regular garment, but it did stand out from the other outfits in this challenge as at least looking normal and somewhat wearable.
Laura used a plastic bag to make a tailored babydoll dress. The writing on the bag ended up on the back of the dress. It said something like 'For Nuts Only' so it turned out to be a pretty cute and funny dress.
Vincent. Weirdo. Made a long plastic or paper tapered gown with bits of scraps and paper glued to it. He always loves what he does (no matter how wacky) and if he said 'It turns me on' or 'It gets me off' about this dress one more time, I was going to heave.
Alison made a dress from crumpled kraft paper. Kind of a corset top and puffy bottom. Not a good week for her, but her dress wasn't as bad as Vincent's or Kayne's. When one of the judges said the dress made the model look 'fat' I knew Alison was going to be the one gone. Because as you know, there is no 'fat' or designers who design for 'fat' people allowed in the fashion industry. Tim described her as being 'zaftig' and on his blog he called her a 'plus size model' - The gal is a sz4, 34-24-36. If she is plus sized, what are we? That's what I hate about the modern fashion industry, they really don't know anything about real women. They are focused on models, celebrities, wanna-be's and socialites. That's why I never buy fashion magazines.
One of the guest judges was some girl who styles those young, skinny, talentless pseudo-celebrities. There's some great credentials, making nobodies seem important.

Backstage everyone was upset that she was going and while Alison cried, Laura, who was also obviously upset, took it out on Vincent. She yelled at him for making a bad dress that the model couldn't even walk in. Loved it! Even if Jeffrey and Kayne have big problems with Laura, I like her (so far, in spite of her comment about Jersey) Oh and Jeff, this may sound mean, but I liked seeing him lose to Michael this week!


Dear Project Runway,
I'm getting very mad at this season. Do the producers really want us to still believe their claims that designers are not kept on the show just for drama and conflict while talented designers are out? Why else is Vincent still on the show? He hasn't produced any good, wearable garment without some kind of weirdness or oddity included. Alison is a talented girl with very interesting ideas. I may not wear her clothing, but her designs and final runway presentations were always interesting to see.
You may be thinking of drama and ratings, but you are hurting yourself in the longrun by damaging the credibility and integrity of the show. I want to see talented people win. I don't want to see schmucks advancing just because of their schuckiness.




Bye for now, Carol

Keith, Allison, Michael and Uli are my favorite designers. I'm 2 for 2 right now. I can not belive Allison got kicked off and somehow she knew she would be by the tears forming in her eyes. I really think they kicked the wrong person off. If they didn't kick Kayne off because of Mr. Kors's comment, "... the man does know how to make dresses." Then they should have considered Allison's track record vs. Vincent's. Is Vincent staying because he is sooo passionate about his crap/art dresses? I'm not falling for it! Vincent should be gone and Kayne real close to leaving as well. His pagentry dresses are useful for one thing... PAGENTS!!! Ugh. I'm not so excited about next week. I am still mourning over Allison. I got over Keith quickly but Allison.... ugh..sigh...sigh again.
