"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


i hate to go and leave this pretty sight

It's week 3 already and I have yet to comment on the new season of Project Runway, the only reality show I watch (besides Laguna Beach. At least I admit it. Stop laughing. I bet you watch Pimp My Ride. Or worse.). Some thoughts:
  • I have to say, as much as I love this show, I'm really disappointed that they've moved to a twice-a-year format. It was fun because it was kindof rare and something to look forward to in winter. Now the contestants know what to expect and, much like The Real World after Puck, it's just not that interesting anymore.
  • Vincent is annoying. And not that talented.
  • He does, however, have significantly more talent than Angela. Oh, my gosh. Did you see that outfit in episode 3? Ivanka Trump said, "She [the model] looks like a streetwalker." I'm pretty sure this represents the one and only time that Ivanka Trump and I were thinking the exact same thing.
  • I love Laura. She's a scream. Putting the puppy into her Expensive Handbag so she wouldn't "have to touch him" was so funny. But her statement in the first episode (something along the lines of, "I never dress down. When you're 42 years old and a mother of 5, it's a slippery slope to sweatpants and a pony tail. I just don't go there.") was to die for. Here's hoping she can stop making the same jacket-with-a-fur-collar and come up with some creative designs that are better than good-enough.
  • The Manolo is so right about Vera Wang. I can't stand Michael Kors, but I want him and his snarky comments back. Soon.
  • Nina Garcia, however, continues to be annoying. Why would you put Bradley's outfit in Elle? It was hideous.
  • Who's getting kicked off next week? Not a clue, but there are lots of theories at BPR.

I'm glad Ms. Wang is not there permanently at PR, but I do think she's more entertaining than she may appear. Last week she just had one liners like "It was hideous" and for some reason that just cracked me up.

And Vincent needs to go. And Angela.

Love Uli.

Fair enough. I didn't like Uli at first but that dress was amazing.
