Project Runway - Season 3 - Episode 7 - Everyday Woman
Ok now that I have gotten that out of my system...Let's talk about how CUTE a chubby little Kayne was??? That just made me love him more :)
So anyway, this week the designers were told they are making an outfit for the "everyday woman" - interesting, right? At first I thought wow that is great! And they made it even better by bringing out sisters and mothers of the designers. How sweet! Tears all around.
But then I saw the women - and that's when I started to get annoyed. First off, each woman looks completely different. About half were very much "plus size" and the other half were thin/slender type women. The whole shock of seeing family members made me forget that some designing was about to go down. But once I saw how unfair the competition was for certain designers over others....well, you all know how I feel. And by the way, if Uli would have won, this would have been a completely different post, but more on that later.
The big budget Project Runway flew in family members from all over the United States and even England. We are told that each designer had to pick another designer's mother or sister to design for. Here is the breakdown.
Judy (Kayne's mom) - Uli Pamela (Michael's mom) - Kayne Theresa (Roberts sister) - Michael Pam (Jeffrey's mom) - Laura Heidi (Uli's mom) - Vincent Laurraine (Laura's mom) - Angela
Darlene (Angela's mom) - Jeffrey
Patricia (Vincent's sister) - Robert
(I may have gotten some of these names wrong, sorry)
Pamela (Michael's mom) - Kayne
Theresa (Roberts sister) - Michael
Pam (Jeffrey's mom) - Laura
Heidi (Uli's mom) - Vincent
Laurraine (Laura's mom) - Angela
The designers get together with their models (aka mommies and sisters) and are told they are invited to a special event hosted by the guest judge (who could it be???)
The guest judge is Michael Kors with a wig on. Ok well, actually it's his mother. But I swear they are TWINS. I want to do that Austin Powers thing where he pulls at the woman's hair and says "It's a MAN, BABY!"
So our Guest Judge, Joan Kors, and her split screen son, Michael, host a champagne party at Tavern on the Green...lovely! The mom's are out in full effect with awkward growing up pictures and stories. How cute!
Jeffrey's picture shows him looking very blonde and kinda preppy - maybe at a beachy high school in California? Turns out that blondie turned into an alcoholic, who is now recovering - and now we get the Jeffrey we all loathe (and some of you love) today.
And then we find out some big news - Laura is having ANOTHER child. Oh my god enough already Laura! Yea yea yea - super woman - career, don't dress down, blah blah blah. The only thing that I am sick of more than her ribcage is the fact that she needs to mention the fact that she has 5 kids all the time. Ok you think you are super woman - wonderful!!! Now you just topped yourself. Why are you on this show? Don't you have 5 kids to take care of????
By the way I know Michael Kors is the one who brought up the 5 kids this time - but still, I am just sick of Laura and this is the only way I can take it out on her.
Jeffrey finds out that Darlene was giving a negative reaction to the design and Jeffrey starts to assume that Darlene is doing it on purpose to set him up. And you know what assuming does....
Tim walks away and lets Jeffrey and Darlene discuss. Jeffrey starts to be a snobby designer and says he is making the outfit he wants and he doesn't even appreciate Darlene standing there (meanwhile all of the designers are with their models working together). Then he says the thing he should not have said - he tells her that her taste in clothes reflects the fact that she is insecure. That is pretty much calling her fat. Don't go there Jeffrey!
Darlene is very upset and insulted. Angela tries to console her mother. Darlene feels there is so much hate in the workroom, that she doesn't even want to face Jeffrey anymore and that she has never been spoken to like that before.
Word gets back to the design work room that Jeffrey broke down Darlene. Jeffrey goes into ass mode and is like "I'm just being honest" "She wasn't nice to me, why should I be nice to her" --- Jeffrey, when will you learn?
Jeffrey's mom tries to come to the rescue and smooth over the tension. It seems to work - Jeffrey you are lucky your mommy is there to save you!
Enough of the drama...let's get to the designs.
Winner - (ugh I don't even want to write this) Vincent with Uli's mom
YOU SHOULD HAVE WON!!! - Uli with Kayne's mom
I think I could go on all day about this...but you all probably know where I am going...so I will just move on.
Almost a winner - Michael with Robert's sister
All of the rest of the designers were at the bottom half. This week nobody was "safe" right after the runway challenge.
Laura with Jeffrey's mom
Well I have nothing really to say about the outfit. Supposedly it was tailored well and it was cruise wear inspired. Yea whatever not interested.
(By the way, what is Laura wearing?? Is it a table cloth turned into a dress? A doily? Each week her personal outfits confuse me more and more)
Angela with Laura's mom
Kayne with Michael's mom
Jeffrey with Angela's mom
And you are out - Robert with Vincent's sister
And once again after the auf'd the designers all burst into tears because they are so sad to see Robert go - even Jeffrey is crying! This is one emotional bunch - I don't remember last season being full of so many tears.
Robert is only filled with fond memories of his experience and knows nothing will ever be the same as Project Runway.
Next out - Kayne, then Jeffrey, then Angela, then Vincent.
Final Three - Uli, Michael and Laura.
I don't know why I am thinking Kayne is out next - but I just get this feeling he has lost some of his super power now that Robert is gone. And the last 2 outfits he has made were bad. Laura is now in my top 3, not because I like her, but because I think she is more consistent then the other designers. And somehow Vincent is saving his ass week after week - so he may make it almost to the end.
PS - I hope you are all keeping up with your Blogging Project Runway reading - everyday there is something new and interesting on that site!
