Project Runway!

So I just caught up on this season's Project Runway and I have a few things to say.

First of all, I think this girl got voted off too soon (that being the first person voted off).

I mean, her dress was fine.  Sure it was a little too narrowly cut so she had "side cleavage" as the judges said.  But there were several worse and I think it was a good idea for the plain button down shirt she had to go off of.

But, she's gone, so I'll get over it.  Otherwise, I think Gretchen is completely awesome.  Sure she's a bit annoying with how much advice she freely gives and her bossy demeanor, but who cares.  What designer is NOT annoying?  We like them for their clothes, not their personalities.  (and really, she ain't that bad)

I usually don't like the same things as the judges, but they love her too.  (she's been in the top three every week and won 2 of the 3 competitions so far).

Her first dress:

Her 2nd outfit:

And her third (made entirely out of party supplies, the jacket is paper bags):

And then there is Casanova.  I can't stand him.  He needs to go.

This is his first outfit.  She looks naked.

And Michael Kohrs said it best about this next one: a "transvestite flamenco dancer at a funeral".

This next one I actually like, but I credit it to the fact that Gretchen helped him alot with it.

Next are just a few more that random other designers did a good job on in my opinion.

(made entirely of napkins...)

(made entirlely of ribbon...)

And this next one I saw coming down the runway and thought it was kinda nice...

But then she turned to the side.

That's all!  Are you guys watching?  Who's your fave?

I havn't seen this show in a very long time... I always love the challenges when they have to make clothes out of garbage or flowers or party supplies.

YES, I'm watching this season! And I'm totally addicted. I started it when I was still living at my mom's house and had dvr, and now I watch it online here. I get so impatient for Thursdays to come around... but since I have to watch it online, I'm actually more impatient for Friday.

Anyway, I think I agree with everything you said. I think Gretchen is great, but yeah, getting a little too conceited. I think it was good for her to not be in the top three last time. And I can't believe that that first girl and the really blond one got booted off before Casanova! I just can't stand him, he's gross and weird. Ew, just ew. Anyway, just a couple more days till the next episode :)
