I almost sure that Char is coming back next week, and that Tim is going to save her in the end

You know, I actually thought the same during the sneak peek of the next episode! I thought Tim is going to repent for not saving Char in the last episode so that he’s going to make her re-enter the competition in the next one. We’ll see! Thanks for posting your opinion <3

Project Runway Season 13 - Episode 6 Review: Rock the Wedding

I can’t remember when was the last time they had a wedding dress challenge in Project Runway - it was probably on the last season but can’t really remember in this moment. Anyway, I think it was nice to have the designers go freely through their style and inspiration to create an alternative wedding gown…until Tim announced this was a team challenge. Ok, it was still ok just because the teams of two had two designers and two dresses, so basically it was one designer for one dress - fair enough.

I was completely shocked by the reaction of judges, and probably my readers are going to be shocked by my reaction instead, but my favourite was Alexander, no doubt about this. I hated the horizontal seams as much as Zac did, but the more I look at it, the less I can see or understand what the judges were talking about. I don’t think it’s an extremely original dress - but to say the truth, no one did anything extremely original this time, so at the end of the day you just have to choose the best without complaining too much - but it’s definitely elegant, it’s well-made, despite the fact I HATE burgundy - I think it’s one of the drabbest colour ever - I thought it was a nice colour to have a little different wedding and that ivory embellishment sewn onto it, well, I thought that was the very special thing of the dress. I like the fact that the ivory pieces leave some spaces where you can see the lace underneath, I think it’s sexy, the difference of texture is extremely interesting and, counting that putting such embellishment on a sheer and fragile fabric as lace could end up in something looking really heavy, the dress doesn’t look heavy at all to me. I read many comments on mylifetime website with people criticising every single detail of this dress, and I don’t know if I suddenly turned crazy, but I guess that’s just because the majority of people can’t think with their own head and follow what the judges say - and we all know how sometimes they say a lot of bullshit. I don’t know, I just think this dress was the real winner, and I think you’ve seen how much I questioned Alexander’s level during these weeks, so this is the proof I’m being completely unbiased.

Char was the clear worst of the week. I’m sad about her leaving the show because I thought she was one of the best, and the fact Tim said that if she had got eliminated later in the competition he would have saved her, well, this says how much her talent was recognised. I don’t mind the colour her and Sandhya chose - actually yellow is my favourite colour and I get SOOO PISSED OFF when people start saying ‘why did you choose yellow?’, it’s so vibrant and bold, how can you not like it? - even if I agree on the fact that it was too much, but the real problem was that her dress, apart from being ordinary, really showed her struggle in making it. It’s messy, unfinished and that yellow lace was a really bad choice of fabric. Like Heidi said, we will miss you Char ;)

I don’t think Sean should have won, despite he successfully put a lot of his menswear background into this challenge. Kini was right when he said Sean only made a pair of trousers, but it’s also true that Kini didn’t stand out for himself - he should have stated he also made the top. Anyway, their team was really good, but the wedding gown by Kini didn’t really convince me, I just had the impression of having seen something exactly like that somewhere else - it happened another time with him during the past episodes. Anyway I guess he’s going to be in the finale with Samantha - I’ve already identified two designers for the finale, now I want to know if I’m right or wrong :D

Another thing I want to talk about is Korina’s behaviour. I’m always for honesty and I think she was right in telling Amanda she thought she was phony. The real question is, why does she think Amanda’s phony? And this is the real problem, because I really think Korina is envious and she doesn’t like the fact that Amanda is always on the top. I think Korina started out feeling really confident and strong, and the more she got into the competition, the less feedback she got from the judges, and in the last episode she was THIS close to be sent home. She’s obviously freaking out. And btw, just to let you know, I’m afraid I’m changing opinion on Amanda, because I really really liked her dress as well this time and I really appreciated when she said that, well, if Korina wasn’t going to make something strange, then she wasn’t going to make something normal and basic. I really like people who stand for what they think. But I still question her taste level, so let’s keep our eyes open.

Last but not least, I would really like to ask Project Runway production WHY WHY WHYYYYYYYYY they chose Chiara Ferragni as guest judge this week. She’s such a self-centred, tasteless, ignorant bitch. I can’t stand her.

So now we just have to wait until next Thursday, and after the sneak peek for the next episode I’m really wondering what’s the thing that Tim is going to announce to the designers. It sounded pretty serious. Oh, I love/hate the way Project Runway makes me feel.

Bedtime Stories - August 29th, 2014
Time has passed since the last time I wrote a personal report on my blog, and things have changed as well - again, I dare say.
I&#8217;ve finally left London and I write finally not because I&#8217;m happy to have left but just because after a while you always feel the need to go back to your roots, see your old friends and family, enjoy the place where you grew up. I&#8217;m currently happily stuck in that period of time between a past experience and the beginning of a new exciting one, that period of time in which all that I personally do can be reduced to two or three things: eat - I&#8217;m in Italy after all! -, sleep, stay out with my friends. I also try to hook up with someone but I&#8217;m not completely successful at that to be honest.
So, what did I do in London before leaving it, apart being stunned every day by its beauty? Here&#8217;s a list:
- I worked, oh God if I worked! I left my job at Zara at the beginning of August to have some weeks to rest and organise my moving back to Italy, until then I was stuck with tidying up tables and folding as many t-shirts as I could in the smallest amount of time possible - sometimes I thought I was going to become blind after all the folding. And yes, most importantly, dealing with customers.
- I went on the British Pullman by Belmond (former Orient Express, does it sound familiar?) courtesy of my lovely friend and flatmate Elena (check out her blog at http://thepeacefulelephant.tumblr.com/) who works with the company. Everything was great, the food was awesome, we drank a lot and then we got to visit a lovely place on the coast - in Kent - called Deal with a romantic shore you can see in photo 3 :D
- my friend Elena and me organised a very small birthday party for my flatmate Alessia who turned 24 and in photo 4 you can see the result of our lovely celebration :D I swear this time there was no alcohol involved.
- I basically forced all my friends to only go to gay clubs in London because I thought I was going to find my soulmate there. Didn&#8217;t think I was going to leave soon. And that it&#8217;s actually difficult to find your soulmate among the habitués of a gay club. I&#8217;m so bad at this.
- I tried on my flatmate&#8217;s whole wardrobe - a sneak peek in photo 5
- I dressed up as a Victorian for a photoshoot with two friends - it was one of the most hilarious things I&#8217;ve done in London, and the result was perfect as you can see in photo 6!
- I played cool blogger letting my friend take photo of me on the streets of the capital - yay, urban style!!! photo 7
And then I thought a lot about my life, as always happens when you leave and say goodbye. I remembered that I&#8217;ll never get used to goodbyes, but who does? I remembered how ambitious I am and how I have to continue with my life and stick to my plans because I&#8217;m lucky enough to know exactly what I want to do and how I want me to do it. I understood that every person I met during these four months, but not only, also during my whole life, has helped building up the person I am and the person I&#8217;m gonna be. I learnt that falling in love is the thing that defines me, and I don&#8217;t mean it in a romantic way, but I&#8217;m talking about an everyday kind of falling in love; it&#8217;s like when you wake up in the morning and you&#8217;re satisfied with the person you are, so you fall in love with yourself a little bit more; it&#8217;s the act of getting inspired by other people to keep on being ambitious and finding the strength to carry on; it&#8217;s falling in love with people you know you won&#8217;t see anymore but from whom you definitely learnt something. 
And I remembered another time in my life that it doesn&#8217;t matter where I am and where I&#8217;m going to go, what I do, who I am with: the place where I come from is part of me, it&#8217;s not only made of places but also of people and emotions and for as much as I hate it, I&#8217;ll always love it more. And the last photo says it all :) Cagliari &lt;3

- I worked, oh God if I worked! I left my job at Zara at the beginning of August to have some weeks to rest and organise my moving back to Italy, until then I was stuck with tidying up tables and folding as many t-shirts as I could in the smallest amount of time possible - sometimes I thought I was going to become blind after all the folding. And yes, most importantly, dealing with customers.
- I went on the British Pullman by Belmond (former Orient Express, does it sound familiar?) courtesy of my lovely friend and flatmate Elena (check out her blog at http://thepeacefulelephant.tumblr.com/) who works with the company. Everything was great, the food was awesome, we drank a lot and then we got to visit a lovely place on the coast - in Kent - called Deal with a romantic shore you can see in photo 3 :D
- my friend Elena and me organised a very small birthday party for my flatmate Alessia who turned 24 and in photo 4 you can see the result of our lovely celebration :D I swear this time there was no alcohol involved.
- I basically forced all my friends to only go to gay clubs in London because I thought I was going to find my soulmate there. Didn&#8217;t think I was going to leave soon. And that it&#8217;s actually difficult to find your soulmate among the habitués of a gay club. I&#8217;m so bad at this.
- I tried on my flatmate&#8217;s whole wardrobe - a sneak peek in photo 5
- I dressed up as a Victorian for a photoshoot with two friends - it was one of the most hilarious things I&#8217;ve done in London, and the result was perfect as you can see in photo 6!
- I played cool blogger letting my friend take photo of me on the streets of the capital - yay, urban style!!! photo 7
And then I thought a lot about my life, as always happens when you leave and say goodbye. I remembered that I&#8217;ll never get used to goodbyes, but who does? I remembered how ambitious I am and how I have to continue with my life and stick to my plans because I&#8217;m lucky enough to know exactly what I want to do and how I want me to do it. I understood that every person I met during these four months, but not only, also during my whole life, has helped building up the person I am and the person I&#8217;m gonna be. I learnt that falling in love is the thing that defines me, and I don&#8217;t mean it in a romantic way, but I&#8217;m talking about an everyday kind of falling in love; it&#8217;s like when you wake up in the morning and you&#8217;re satisfied with the person you are, so you fall in love with yourself a little bit more; it&#8217;s the act of getting inspired by other people to keep on being ambitious and finding the strength to carry on; it&#8217;s falling in love with people you know you won&#8217;t see anymore but from whom you definitely learnt something. 
And I remembered another time in my life that it doesn&#8217;t matter where I am and where I&#8217;m going to go, what I do, who I am with: the place where I come from is part of me, it&#8217;s not only made of places but also of people and emotions and for as much as I hate it, I&#8217;ll always love it more. And the last photo says it all :) Cagliari &lt;3

Bedtime Stories - August 29th, 2014

Time has passed since the last time I wrote a personal report on my blog, and things have changed as well - again, I dare say.

I’ve finally left London and I write finally not because I’m happy to have left but just because after a while you always feel the need to go back to your roots, see your old friends and family, enjoy the place where you grew up. I’m currently happily stuck in that period of time between a past experience and the beginning of a new exciting one, that period of time in which all that I personally do can be reduced to two or three things: eat - I’m in Italy after all! -, sleep, stay out with my friends. I also try to hook up with someone but I’m not completely successful at that to be honest.

So, what did I do in London before leaving it, apart being stunned every day by its beauty? Here’s a list:

- I worked, oh God if I worked! I left my job at Zara at the beginning of August to have some weeks to rest and organise my moving back to Italy, until then I was stuck with tidying up tables and folding as many t-shirts as I could in the smallest amount of time possible - sometimes I thought I was going to become blind after all the folding. And yes, most importantly, dealing with customers.

- I went on the British Pullman by Belmond (former Orient Express, does it sound familiar?) courtesy of my lovely friend and flatmate Elena (check out her blog at http://thepeacefulelephant.tumblr.com/) who works with the company. Everything was great, the food was awesome, we drank a lot and then we got to visit a lovely place on the coast - in Kent - called Deal with a romantic shore you can see in photo 3 :D

- my friend Elena and me organised a very small birthday party for my flatmate Alessia who turned 24 and in photo 4 you can see the result of our lovely celebration :D I swear this time there was no alcohol involved.

- I basically forced all my friends to only go to gay clubs in London because I thought I was going to find my soulmate there. Didn’t think I was going to leave soon. And that it’s actually difficult to find your soulmate among the habitués of a gay club. I’m so bad at this.

- I tried on my flatmate’s whole wardrobe - a sneak peek in photo 5

- I dressed up as a Victorian for a photoshoot with two friends - it was one of the most hilarious things I’ve done in London, and the result was perfect as you can see in photo 6!

- I played cool blogger letting my friend take photo of me on the streets of the capital - yay, urban style!!! photo 7

And then I thought a lot about my life, as always happens when you leave and say goodbye. I remembered that I’ll never get used to goodbyes, but who does? I remembered how ambitious I am and how I have to continue with my life and stick to my plans because I’m lucky enough to know exactly what I want to do and how I want me to do it.

Ashley Williams, designer based in London, has definitely that hip and cool kind of indie style that I would identify with the whole scene in that lovely place called Shoreditch - if you happen to go to London, definitely go there for a breath of style fresh air.

And now she collaborated with Selfridges and its Denim Studio for a capsule collection definitely worth our money :D Cowboy and far west are the main inspirations, but there’s always an unexpected twist in her clothes that makes everything go another direction than what you would expect. The fringed jacket with two white horses is then followed in the collection by high-waisted blue jeans and a sweet but at the same time slightly creepy cat looking at you with big eyes from a plain white t-shirt. And then, why not, let’s add a touch of femininity with a red pencil skirt. 

Mixing different worlds and questioning what’s expected: these seem to be the key features of Ashley’s style.

2014 EMMYS Red Carpet Review

Straight after the fashion frenzy of the Mtv Video Music Awards - where, in general, celebrities behaved and opted for a sober look - here it comes again, another great occasion for fashion obsessed like me to put under the microscope the look of the stars: the 66th Emmy Awards. In general, as usual, I’ve seen lots of predictable, big, huge evening gowns, but I also have to admit this time I wasn’t negatively shocked by anyone’s look in particular - just like it happened yesterday after I saw Lorde’s dress at the vmas, oh Lord, I still have to recover. Who were the best dressed? And who made it to the worst dressed list? Let’s find out together!

BEST DRESSED

Julia Roberts: No, no, Julia Roberts says no to leaving room to the new generation of actors and actresses, and caught everyone’s attention with this Elie Saab stone-embellished cocktail dress - even though the LA Times put her among the worst dressed, bullshit! I’m telling you, I’ve never agreed with all those people - many people - who always say that Julia Roberts is one of the most beautiful actresses. I think she’s really average and her mouth is too large, but hey, yesterday she outshone - nearly - everyone. She was young, a tad cocky, playful. Just awesome! 

Cat Deeley: I guess hers was my favourite dress. I just love everything about it: the feminine and sweet colour which slightly fades into a creamy white, the sexy but measured V-neck cleavage which kind of reminds me of ballerina dresses, the effortlessly chic bow tied at the waist. And it’s Burberry. Congrats for the choice, really. 

Sarah Hyland: she’s young and she wants to look young, so I guess choosing a crop top with a full flowing round skirt in a bright colour is the best decision she could make. This ensemble by Christian Siriano is definitely elegant, but the little stripe of skin between the skirt and the top adds that little edge which makes it all fresher. Very good! ★-

WORST DRESSED

Keke Palmer: her dress was just one of a whole group of ‘mermaid gowns’ - see Christina Hendricks’s dress for another horrible take on the theme. So, the style is already very old-fashioned, then if you add two or three extra yards to the tale of the dress making it HUGE, well, it becomes a real train wreck. The gown was by Rubin Singer. †+

Kate Mulgrew: I’ll never be tired of saying it: if you’re old, it doesn’t mean you have to wear shitty dresses. I don’t even know what to say about this dress apart that it’s boring and the sheer sleeves kill me. It looks like something Gina from Beverly Hills 90210 would wear in the 90s. 

Lena Dunham: as soon as I saw this dress I kept on looking at it thinking ‘I’ve already seen it, I’ve already seen it… but where?’ And then I realised that mixed to the disgust for how she’s dressed, there were some positive feelings for the skirt. Then I understood. It’s Giambattista Valli couture! This was one of my favourite outfits among all couture fashion shows this year, but on Lena it becomes TACKY. It just doesn’t fit with the person and is it just my impression or the shirt is sort of wrinkly? Lena, you’re not the worst dressed just because I actually loved that dress on the runway. †-

My special mention this time goes to Sarah Paulson with her bumblebee fancy dress - I don’t know why it REALLY makes me think of a bumblebee. But I recognise her effort at being original. And I can’t help loving her as an actress, god, she’s so good!

MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS - RED CARPET REVIEW

Once More With Fashion police - basically only ME - is ready to check the latest event in the showbiz: the annual Mtv Video Music Awards. Do you remember what happened one year ago at the same event? Well, just think that the obsession of twerk started during that occasion, but even if this is not enough for you to remember anything from that night, refresh your memory by reading my old post from last year: http://oncemorewithfashion.tumblr.com/post/59416682426/vmas-2013-best-worst-of-course-i-couldnt-miss

BEST DRESSED

Miley Cyrus: how can you make it to the best dressed list after being even too bad for the worst dressed list just one year ago? Ask Miley! This girl never stops surprising me. Yes, the look she chose for this year’s VMAs is always over the top and kind of badass style, but I couldn’t help loving the little strapless top with those shiny leathery trousers she’s wearing. Perfect attitude for the perfect outfit. ★-

Solange Knowles: I’ve never really liked her, not because of any aversion I feel against her, just because she’s always only been ‘the - loud - sister of’ - in this case, Beyonce. But wow, this time she just nailed it. She was definitely the most original of all the people who walked the red carpet last night, rocking a menswear inspired suit with an oversize jacket and a pair of cropped trousers. Another thing I LOVED is her hairstyle, she just looks like some kind of crazy girl escaped from a madhouse. I - LOVE - IT. But the best thing is, do you know who designed this outfit? H&M. Going to one of the most important events of the music industry wearing low cost fashion like you don’t give A SHIT: I’M DEFINITELY YOURS. And I’m sorry Beyo, but in this case your sister proved she’s the queen when it comes to style. 

Kylie Jenner: I don’t know if today is some special day for the sisters of the celebrities, but after Solange outshining Beyo on the red carpet, Kylie Jenner did the same with her sister Kim Kardashian - as well as with her sister Kendall, I would say. In this perfect Alexandre Vauthier black silky fairytale gown, not only did she look amazing and for sure more mature than her actual 17 years old, but also sexy, self-confident. See what a simple dress can do? 

WORST DRESSED

Iggy Azalea: what is she wearing? Is it like a Star Wars armour for women? How can such a heavily structured dress in such a colour be considered elegant and/or cool? So many questions when I look at that dress, but no answers really. Oh, now I have an answer about WHY I find this dress so tacky: it’s by Atelier Versace. This explains everything. 

Amber Rose: the reason for putting her among the worst dressed seems pretty clear to me: she’s not wearing anything!! Oh no, wait, you want to tell me that those chains barely covering her fat are actually a dress by Laurel Dewitt? At this point I’m thankful that at least her boobage is covered properly. †+

Katy Perry: ok Katy, fine, we understood you like being flamboyant and over the top, and we also understood your taste level is not ‘mainstream’, let’s say… So now please stop. I understand you dressed like this because you wanted a kind of ‘theme’ to represent with your outfit, but cowgirl denim is too much even for my open-minded personality. Oh, and this is Versace as well, now I understand. 

If you happen to know my blog you also know I like giving special mentions to those people who were not good or bad enough to make it to the best/worst dressed lists. First of all I want to talk about Kim Kardashian’s boobs which were the real protagonists of the outfit. What drives me crazy is that the dress is not that bad at all, I really like the pattern, but then she ruined everything putting her ‘ladies’ on the first row. And what about the sloppy hair? 

If Miley got to the best dressed list, things really seem to be going the other way round with Taylor Swift. Still haven’t figured if I like this short jumpsuit or not, one thing I know is that she slightly reminds me of Oompa-loompas from ‘The Chocolate Factory’.

ALERT: I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT HOW LORDE WAS DRESSED AFTER THE CEREMONY, OH MY GOD. I have to be honest, I didn’t want to rewrite my whole best dressed list, but this dress really is the worst thing on earth. She can’t choose hot boyfriends and she can’t even choose dresses. This Morticia Addams velvet gown - and the styling as well - deserves † x 1,000,000

Stay tuned for more news from the fashion world :D

 

 

Project Runway Season 13 - Episode 5: The Klum of Doom

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step right up: for this last episode challenge designers had to design for the hardest customer they’ve ever met, Heidi Klum. And no, this is not all; in fact, they had to design a red carpet gown for Heidi to wear at a big event such as the Creative Arts Emmys. Big, huge deal for the designers.

It was easy to spot the winner, as Sean made something which I can only define using the word GLAMAZING! Ok, I admit I already knew he was going to wing because this morning before watching the episode some stupid news feed on facebook posted the photo of Heidi wearing that dress on my wall - duh! But it was a pleasure anyways. His choice of keeping the silhouette very simple - loved to death the very thin straps - was the best to balance the heaviness of the fringes and the solid electric blue of the entire look. About the colour, I can only say I would wear an ENTIRE wardrobe in that shade of blue, it was just so vibrant and unique. I think I had an orgasm - not only because Sean is really sexy and I melt when I see him smiling, hehe :D

If the winner was easy to spot, the three bottoms were even easier to choose, but I agreed with the judges, the worst were definitely Mitchell and especially Kristine. Her dress was everything but right: the colour was wrong, that neckline made it look like a devil costume for carnival, the length was off, the fabric was soooo stiff it looked like it couldn’t move in any way whatsoever. And the boobs were all over the place, really. I also have to add that I hope that model gets eliminated as well because she’s so incredibly ugly! Mitchell had a wrong colour and awful construction as well, but at least he tried to make something interesting for the top, even if it turned out to be a very ugly thing. One thing I noticed about him is that his taste level is really really questionable, I would have never put those platform shoes with the length of his dress - how can’t you see that it doesn’t match?

Alexander was really really lucky that three designers made a complete mess with their outfits, because his wasn’t better. Apart from the fact that his model had her butt showing to the whole world, but in general that dress looked like a quilted blanket sewn up over a body. It was the same silhouette he did for the unconventional group challenge - which indeed was my least favourite of the episode. I think it’s official I DON’T like this guy. Another one I want to talk about is Emily who, even if I wouldn’t have put her among the bottoms, for sure her dress was not as good as Heidi said when she visited the designers inside the workroom. The fact it was a short dress doesn’t have anything to do with this, it’s just that the more I looked at that outfit with that tuxedo revers on it, the more I could see in my mind appear the words LESBIAN HOOKER. It was even slightly vulgar. And I didn’t like that she chose not to go to Mood again and then criticised the others saying that it was not fair that they were going to have another chance. Ehm, you had the same chance and refused it, maybe you’d better shut up.

About the designers I liked, of course I loved Kini’s dress, but it was really predictable and kind of classic red carpet - not a surprise that boring Zac Posen said that was his favourite look. Amanda positively surprised me because she definitely managed more than all the others to make something Heidi could totally like and wear keeping her aesthetic at the same time. So for this time I’ll put aside my aversion towards her and say BRAVO AMANDA!

To conclude let’s have a look at how stunning was Heidi with Sean’s dress. She’s so annoyingly beautiful.

It seems like a miracle that I managed to find the time and the right state of mind to write something other than Project Runway reviews! This all moving from London thing really took time but I’m now ready to take over the world of fashion again! :D

I decided that I’m going to talk only about things where I can give my opinion, because let’s say it, you wouldn’t come to my blog just to read some news that you can already read in other more important websites such as Vogue or WWD for example. 

So, why not talking about new collections? Barbie has teamed up with Lord & Tailor, Wildfox and Forever 21 for a total of THREE collections! Each brand will get inspired by different decades: while Lord & Taylor will be all about 50s and 60s, Wildfox chose 80s and Forever 21 went for the 90s. I still couldn’t find pictures for Lord & Taylor’s collection, which is set to release in mid-November and will feature Barbie sleepwear, but we have enough materials to comment on the other two lines.

Forever 21 with the 90s is preaching to the converted, as 90s are so big in fashion right now. The piece I liked the most is the swimsuit in a really nice Barbiesh pink, simple but definitely appealing to younger customers. The furry sweater is not bad, but I think it’s something you can find anywhere these days. I don’t quite understand the tank top with the line ‘I woke up like this’. Isn’t it too contemporary to be defined 90s?

Wildfox has taken a bigger risk instead going very literal on 80s, but I appreciate it. The tracksuit is just hilarious and beautiful at the same time, I love the irony in it as well the fact that I can totally see 80s glam in it. I can’t say I don’t love the sunglasses - after all it’s obvious, I have a pair of round specs myself, so how couldn’t I love them? The bikini then can be very successful as it features one of the obsession of young girls this year: a crop top. 

Forever 21’s collection will be released at the beginning of September while Wildfox will put its line on the market in mid-November. Anyway, one thing is sure: after more than 50 years Barbie can still be an icon for young, fashionable girls.

vivo-ego-in-crastinum asked:

Do you think that Sandhya is going to go the same way that Patricia did in PR season 11 (I think, the same one Amanda started on)? I think Heidi will take the same exact liking to her that she did to Patricia, merely because she brings a bit of a new twist on things, although someone may or may not actually decide to wear her looks if they were put out on the market.

Hey you, thanks for the question! Well, it’s hard to say at this stage because I don’t think Heidi is rooting for her as much as she used to do with Patricia - it was really obvious that Heidi really liked her. Personally I remember Patricia because she was my favourite of that season - yes, she was! - and even though I see similarities between her way of constructing her own fabrics and Sandhya’s attitude towards creating garments, in Sandhya I see something crafty that I didn’t see in Patricia’s work - or at least I didn’t see it all the time. Patricia made some mistakes of course but in her work I saw more of a professional hand than Sandhya and for sure a more aware taste level. As I said in one of my last posts, I don’t think Sandhya really knows what she’s doing, she just does it! For sure she’s the most original of all the designers in this season, and we all know how much we need unique points of view in Project Runway, but I don’t know if she’s going to get far in the competition. We’ll see! Anyway, no, after all this explanation I gave to you, no, I don’t think Heidi will stand for her as much as she did for Patricia. Let’s remember that Heidi doesn’t usually like junior style and sometimes Sandhya goes REALLY junior - see the moustaches she put in her last outfit - something that didn’t happen with Patricia :)

Project Runway Season 13 - Episode 4: A Suitable Twist

Hey hey here I am again with my weekly review and FINALLY I managed to post before the new episode airs - even if just one day before. 

For the fourth challenge designers had to create a high fashion look using materials from old classic mens suits - and they were reaaaally old-fashioned. Producers of the show never stop surprising us with new SICK challenges for these poor designers.

I don’t know what’s happening during this season but my opinion really doesn’t match the opinion of the judges. I guess it’s because the more I get to know fashion, the more I like new things and the more I get bored by normal, already-seen looks, and we have to admit that Heidi, Nina and Zac have become really mainstream and predictable. 

My favourite was Samantha (photo 1) - second time in four episodes that this happens and loved her outfits even when she wasn’t my favourite. I’m more and more convinced she’s going to get to the finale, even if I’m a little worried about the judges’ taste level. Anyway yes, her dress was not really high fashion, but whose look was after all, apart from Kini’s? And I don’t usually like total black because you can’t really see anything, no details and I admit in this dress you can’t see them either, but taking a look at the close up I was amazed by how she managed to keep it simple and add little elements which made it unique. And I loved the fact she kept some detailing from the suit. 

Hernan (photo 2) was the obvious choice for the judges when it came to sending someone home. It was his time, I’m not even sure if he deserved to be in the competition because all I saw in four episodes was tackiness, tackiness, tackiness. I kinda remember on the first episode the judges said he designed some dresses for Jennifer Lopez, am I wrong? Anyway, that’s the proof he’s tacky, because JLo is probably one of the celebrities with the worst taste in the showbiz. The V for Super Vagina in this dress - thanks Heidi for this pearl - is just the cherry on a cake of crap. That white fabric wasn’t even that bad compared to, for example, Amanda’s suit, which turned into a beautiful dress. The awful truth, Hernan, is that you weren’t able. For sure it’s not turning an old suit into a dress which makes a designer, but unfortunately for you this is what it takes to become the winner of Project Runway. And then really, you complain about the fabric and then in Mood, when you have a choice of thousands of fabrics and colours, you pick vinyl? No comment.

Amanda was definitely one of the best but I would have rather picked Kini as the winner because his dress definitely had every requisite to match the challenge AND was amazingly cool as well - even though I fell in love with Samantha’s little black suit-dress :)

I wouldn’t have put Sean among the worst designers, and imo this is another proof of how boring the judges are becoming. I knew since the beginning that they would have said that dress looked like it belonged from someone who escaped the hospital, that it was sloppy etc. Bullshit! There’s so much of that decadent minimalist take on dresses in fashion right now, and I think his look even had an interesting colour combination. Maybe he has to work on his sewing skills, but that outfit was not bad at all.

Next time designers will have to design for the hardest customer in Project Runway: HEIDI. And seeing the preview my senses have started tingling after Heidi said: ‘You’re out… And I’m sorry, you’re also out?’. Seems like two designers are going home. But never forget there’s always a twist in Project Runway. Is Tim going to use his Tim’s Save? Let’s wait.
