Oh dear...I am soooo behind already!
So in the first episode of Project Runway...
Wall to Wall Challenge
-The designers arrived at Atlas Apartments and were welcomed by Heidi and Tim in a Roof Top party only to discover they were to use their apartments as the materials for their first challenge.
-Chaos ensues --insert evil Malan laugh here
-Vincent creates a hat out of a basket, and is delusional about his own brilliance as a designer (I think he left his mind in the 80s too)
-The Designers return to their apartments thinking they'd be back to brand-new glory (classic reality show style). But no, Project Runway isn't you're ordinary reality show. And the designers return to the same squalor they left their apartments in. Oh snap were they mad. Andy Cohen from Bravo's ranks thought this was mean to include in the actual show. But I guess the kids at Magic Elves (production company) won out on that one. I thought it was a little tacky, but it shows that this is just a reality show. Can't take advantage of it. There will be twists and turns.
-Keith creates a dress from a bed sheet that wins
-Stacy the Harvard Grad is Auf'd
-Keith wins! (His first dress, ever made) and is granted immunity for the next challenge. Personally, I thought Keith's dress was nice, but c'mon, he could have done the same thing with fabric. He should have been a bit more innovative (that's what this is about) and really used new and different materials to make his garment unique.
Miss USA Challenge
-This time the Designers faced a Client Challenge making a dress, excuse me, evening gown for Miss USA Tara Conner. And this was to be no ordinary evening gown, but one that would be worn by Tara during the Miss Universe Pagent.
-30 minutes to sketch--Angela's bad move #1 --bugging and bugging and bugging Kayne about working with him
-Pitching to Tara--Angela's bad move #2-- "I don't sketch, I'm just going to ask a few questions. Do you like empire waist?"
-Choosing the Designs--Malan, Laura, Keith, Vincent, Kayne, Jeffery and Uli's designs were chosen and then...
-Choosing teams...dun dun dun --Laura got Keith (made in heaven), Jeffery got Allison (again, made in heaven), Uli got Bonnie (made in heaven), Malan got Katherine (made in heaven), Keith got Bradley (made in heaven), Vincent got Allison--I mean Angela (made in the deepest circle of hell).
-Angela's bad move #3--no respect for Vincent...if anything she should have been his cheerleader and perhaps offering things to do. Would you like me to baste this? Or press that? Sitting around will not keep her around or make her look good in the eyes of the judges.
-Vincent was WAAAYYY too headstrong about his design and he needs to learn how to share and how to work in a team. Tim Gunn's even said that Vincent wouldn't listen to anything he had to say and would shoo him away. C'mon Vincent, there's a reason Tim's there. HELP.
-So I really started to feel for Malan. I mean the story about his mother and proving himself and all. I really wanted him to go on.
-Runway time...Angela's bad move #4--Don't start ripping apart the dress you're attached to (even as a part of a team). Don't verbally abuse the dress...talk about the DESIGNER. If she had spoken up about working with Vincent and his lack of teamwork, she might have gotten him kicked off. But no.
-Malan left. :( I wanted to see him continue. Ah man. Kick off the boring designers...like Bradley, yeah, he's boring. Kick him off.
-But but but Kayne (Mr. Pagent himself) won! YAY!!! And he should have. It was a good thing to see him win. Last season with Santino and the Barbie thing, Santino claimed that Barbie was his thing and that he'd win blah blah. But no, it was Nick. But YAYYAYAYAY for Kayne! He'll be around for at least another episode.
but what's of this scandal...when will someone be asked to leave by THE Tim Gunn? Why must you tease us a-la-Survivor and not actually deliver for 3 weeks! WHY?!
damn...I love this show
