I must admit that Joel and I have gotten hooked on Project Runway. Yes, me the person who often critizes reality tv and the people who watch it - has fallen victim to its
What is not to love? It has all the makings of a soap opera - the egos, the drive to win (at any cost), the bitchiness and we cannot forget the gay guys who are guaranteed to add some gay pizazz to the show. Gee, these guys could make 'The Bounty Hunter' show enjoyable. Though I was expecting the gay guys to be more cut throat in the competition, but they were actually very sweet and very professional AND lets not forget stylish. Hey, this could be the perfect daytime soap.
Now, lets not forget the judges. Firstly, we have the star of Project Runway, Heidi Klum. I always thought Heidi had this sweet Euro thing going for her, not too mention being totally gorgeous - but enough already. I must admit that I preferred observing her from a distance without the whining voice. Yes, maybe models should be seen and not heard. Then we have our favorite (NOT) judge Michael Kors. Please, Michael maybe you should step down of that pedestal and smell the roses sometime. With his overly priced mediocre clothing line - that is far from original - I wish he would just shrivel up and crawl into a hole somewhere. As the saying goes - Out of sight, out of mind - I wish!
Lets not daudle we have more Judges to judge. Another person who is seen evey week lining the Runway with pen and paper is Nina Garcia. Now I actually like this woman. She could definitely do something with her hair but her appraisal of the Runway fashions has been tough but very fair. Unlike, Heidi and Michael who tend to bounce of each other as if they were really just one person. Maybe they are? It is amazing what visual technology can achieve these days.
You must know by now that they have guest judges each week I especially enjoyed the one where Ms America, or Ms Universe sat on her mini thrown alongside Michael and Heidi and spouted about very little. I mean I saw her lips moving but nothing of real substance was passing through them. She would also fair much better if she was 'seen and not heard'.
Oh, I failed to mention that this weeks project was to create stylish outfit for the mothers of the designers. This was a difficult task as those of you who know anything about designer fashion are fully aware that the outfits only look awesome on a size
2 0 figure. Admittedly, a couple of the designers failed miserably. I mean, come on, what you would put on a size 18-20 woman? Nothing looks good on fat people. Hey, I can say that as I am not a waif, far from it, and I have a wardrobe of skinny clothing just waiting for me to look good in. Anyway Michael Kors, of all people, had the nerve judge these designers attempts at making the larger women look attractive. Hey Michael, really rich opinions coming from a person who does not cater at all to plus size women. Larger women would need to buy 2 or 3 of your reshashed designs to even attempt to sqeeze into them! Judge not.
WHAT....you think I am being too harsh. Oh, please. They are judges - should we not judge? Where is your sense of humour. Ok, so I am expecting intelligent conversation from a fashion reality show - my bad. So when the hell is this show going to end so I can get back to the Discovery Channel?
