This is For The Party!

This post is for everyone else's live-posting of the show tonight. Our east coast friends will join in a scene-by-scene description of the episode. Just in case we have some newbies - remember we are all friends here, and we are all polite! Those of us on the west coast can check in for a little preview of the show. Thanks so much all of you. I can't believe we only have one more Wednesday night together!

hmmm... {door swings open; room is dark} {SFX: crickets...}
yoo-hoo...?!

{OBD sits down on the rug to wait for everybody else & wonders....: } so...insultcomicdog, what if they let viewers vote on the final collections?

InsultComicDog said...

They may well let viewers vote but it can't override the judges in any case. Maybe a "People's Choice" award?

OurBoyDaniel said...

i like that idea...

Moi ;) said...

It's going to be sad once it's all over with!!!

InsultComicDog said...

I don't know what the surprise will be but I think they should bring Stacy and Clinton from "What Not To Wear" in to do the judging :)

jilouise said...

my curiosity is peaked--my tv's descriprion calls NEXT week the finale. I was really looking forward to teh finale tonight (am I the only one who thought it was tonight???)

InsultComicDog said...

Until last week I thought it was tonight, as a double episode, the way they did it last season

OurBoyDaniel said...

jilouise -- it's "14 DAYS of FINALE!!" :o) over at Bravo -- i think they're milking a good thing :o) Today we go off to watch the deigners in their natural habitats and next week we see them in captivity again, under the tent in Bryant Park

Brent said...

Look at this flotsam and jetsam!

InsultComicDog said...

Where the HELL is my chiffon?

Anonymous said...

If it was anyone from What Not to Wear it should be Trinny and Susannah from the British one.

InsultComicDog said...

Yeah I've seen the British one a couple of times.

InsultComicDog said...

Nick lost me when he got all bent out of shape about losing his model

jilouise said...

thanks, OBD, guess I need to "get out more" LOL Next stop--bravo site........... ;)

Still geared up for the episode tonight. I would like to hear their thoughts behind the collections.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

I can't wait-a third of the show should be for Daniel, right?

Anonymous said...

1/3 of the show for Daniel! Yesss!

gumdropgurl said...

you lucky duck east coasters...enjoy the show, i think i will log out and be surprised tomorrow, if i can control myself :)

Jan the Dan Fan said...

10 minutes to go...

Tbone said...

Howdy netcowboy - welcome to the party!

InsultComicDog said...

12 piece collection? But they each had 13. Maybe that has something to do with the surprise?

Jan the Dan Fan said...

"Lost" almost tricked me!!! It's going over 5 minutes...

Champangne on the rooftop for the final three with Heidi and Tim.

Moi ;) said...

WTF Santino and the middle finger. How tacky.

Moi ;) said...

I hear ya, I was watching Lost too, can't figure out Locke and the prisoner. :P

Moi ;) said...

COOL Car, Tim!!!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Ugh-a bit OT--my husband is watching this with me for the first time and he's driving me nuts with questions!

How can I pay attention with him making comments constantly???
Thank goodness PR repeats!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Santino was homeless for a bit...

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Tim and Santino with the beach sunset and seaguls...

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Wow-the softer side of Santino hanging with his best friend's beautiful little girls.
Being a mom, I know little kids only hang all over people they love and trust.

PhillyKat said...

Santino finally makes sense to me now. I could tell he was insecure, but knowing he's bi-racial puts things in a whole new light. He and I are basically the same complexion, but I'm not biracial and I've had my own issues as have a few friends. God only knows what he's gone through regarding his skin and sex pref.

Moi ;) said...

OMG Daniel got his hair cut!!!!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Santino explained that he had a collection that went bust-- Oooh, but it's Daniel's turn now!!!!

Oh big hug for the Gunn. So jealous!

Moi ;) said...

There's that brocade Jacket.....

Jan the Dan Fan said...

"something very special and unique about this" Tim on Daniel's collection.
And now he's taking Tim shopping for a new blazer-possibly for the runway show.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

"I love my life right now, and this is just the beginning", says the beautiful Daniel Vosovic.

Wait until you see his designs details. So gorgeous!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Chloe seems to have the least finished thus far...

She doesn't have sketches for Tim to see. "What's in your head? I want to know?"

Christina said...

So Chloe is the one who didn't have sketches.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Tim takes a family picture with Chloe's family of women.

Oooohh..after commercial-they're moving in together!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Chloe and Daniel hanging out in bed together. SO jealous now.

But they're busting on Santino.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

WAIT--Santino just said the he's read every sh#%@! blog.

THIS is not a @%^$&4 blog!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Santino-compared Chloe's collection to a couch.

Christina said...

"It looks a little like your dad did this in his garage."

OMG! I love Tim!

Moi ;) said...

Tim is underwhelmed with Daniel's....hmmmm....

Even hub says that Santino is going to win. @@

InsultComicDog said...

Based on the pictures from the FW show I have felt all along that Daniel's was the weakest collection. And I think Santino's was the best, and Chloe's was also strong. So Tim Gunn is affirming my opinions.

Liza said...

All three shared personal life details, I did not really expect that. I am always amazed at all the different stuggles people go through and they come through the other side and they are fantastic, strong, and ready for more. I know all the other designers must have wonderful personal stories too, to bad we couldn't hear all of them.

PhillyKat said...

seeing chloe's stuff up close i don't like it. it does look a little 80s prom meets alexis carrington.

i agree with tim just saying ok to daniel because i still think his line was boring. the bags look woodshopy but i think that's why i like them.

i am now only impressed by santino. i couldn't decide between his and chloe's, but i have now.

Anonymous said...

If Santino wins, I'm sure everyone is going to be so upset because their favorite didn't win. They'll be just as upset as when Nick left. A lot of people really dislike Santino, but his collection is the strongest. There's talent there, but because of his rudeness people's views on his talent are distorted.

So if Santino wins, is everyone going to cry, b!tch, & moan, then say they're going to boycott Bravo? If they do that, what a bunch of sore losers.

Christina said...

Yes, but sometimes they show one designer having problems and they end up winning the challenge. The same thing could be happening here. I'm not that much of a Dan fan, but I could see the judges loving it. I do like that white coat...which is why I own two, one in black and one in tweed.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

"It's just those damn details."--Daniel

Jan the Dan Fan said...

My husband is sympathizing with Santiono over not getting any models to show for fittings.

Cat said...

I think Daniel has gotten a bit cocky, probably from winning the most challenges (and some important ones at that), and that's not good for him.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Here it comes...

Anonymous said...

I actually want Santino to win, despite his attitude his collection is by far the best. Chloe's is pretty ugly, looks like bad 1980s fashion trends revisited, and what the heck is with that trim on the skirts, looks the a geometric mess. I love Dan but his collection is boring, the only piece that stands out to me is that gorgeous white coat, but still nothing special about his collection. The most original thing he made were those handbags which were pretty craptastic.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Oh--it is ONE MORE DESIGN to add to their collection.

Who guessed that before?

PhillyKat said...

awwwwww heyll naw! create 1 more look that has to be on the runway? that's just stupid. you know what if i were them, i'd make a pack not to do it. they can't hold it against you if the 3 of them don't do it. oh here come the other designers

Jan the Dan Fan said...

It's everyone!!!!! They're back to help.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Daniel chooses Nick!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Santino-does anyone like him?

"Andrae"--in Timpression!

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Chloe chooses Diana-yah! So psyched she gets to be shown-off again.

Moi ;) said...

Andrae!!! :D

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Yikes-they all seem way stressed over the extra piece.

Christina said...

Yes! I LOVE this surprise! I think I'm psychic, because I guessed this like 2 days ago. Just a feeling I had. And somehow I knew who they'd pick.

Moi ;) said...

My husband thought Tim said "Andrae!" ROFL

echoe311 said...

OMG! I knew they would make them have another design because I didn't see Santino's bomber jacket.

jilouise said...

This is definitely going to be interesting. I want more than 10 minutes more tonight, tho

InsultComicDog said...

Looks like I caught it early tonight

PhillyKat said...

i thought daniel needed nick or andrae because he needs their eye and expertise. he probably should have chosen andrae simply because they're a good team and they work well together.

santino chosing andrae no brainer.

chloe chosing diana?? i'm not sure how that's gonna work. i was thinking she needs someone who can take a garment apart and just sew. she may have been better off with franco. since it's not his design, he might not have done the daniel franco shuffle and take forever. plus, he's done his own show before so he knows what it takes.

PhillyKat said...

omg insultcomicdog bringing in stacy and clinton would be AWESOME! i'd love it. they'd probably want to dress the designers themselves though.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Back at Mood.

Jan the Dan Fan said...

Ooh some harsh comments from the judges next week.

InsultComicDog said...

It's been fun but I better grab a few things at the supermarket before they close at midnight.

Snow is on the way!

sarahlad said...

Just over- loved seeing Andrae! What was Chloe thinking picking Diana? (guess Kara was busy too huh? Why do they pretend she didn't show?) So, we get more Andrae, more Nick! I pick Santino to win!

KidLyd said...

I think all 3 designers are amazing, but Santino is my favorite. Wow, his story really touched me. I'm bi-racial so I totally get that perspective. I also get his sense of humor and I think he's genuinely a good person---not to mention a great designer. As much as I like both Daniel and Chloe, it was a bit annoying to see them pawing at each other. I felt bad for Santino because they were so aloof with him when he was trying to explain his behavior from earlier episodes and even apologize to them.

Everyone showed an impressive collection at Olympus Fashion week and each person proved to me that they are great designers. But, I think Santino is the true artist and I hope he wins.

Erica said...

Howdy, newbie here.

Personality aside, often Santino is right when critiquing the work of others. He was right about Nick's last outfit. When he micromanaged Kara's look for him, his suggestions were good. If both he and Tim are saying things about Daniel's line having "issues", then Daniel better listen to at least Tim.

I'm not watching the show at the mo, but I know when Daniel did his makeover of Chloe, he didn't take the criticism of his outfit well. And it bothered me alittle that he was so critical of Santino when his own creation was unfinished and not that good.

I don't think he's used to it. He's used to the praise. I don't know if I'd agree that he's getting cocky, though. Just used to being the fair-haired child.

Having seen all three looks, I agree that Santino's is the best. And personalities and favorites aside, I hope he wins. But then I was vaguely rooting for Pepper last year. Forgive me, I didn't see the whole season, just the last few shows, and didn't know her history. All I knew was that my "underdog alarm" was going off.

Same with Santino. Ding! Ding! Ding!

Cat said...

I think when Daniel say "I'm expecting Tim to say this is the best collection ever," that comes off as awfully cocky.

Anonymous said...

I don't think there's much safe about Santino -that's his attraction. His work was real, diverse and skilled. You don't have to be a fashion critic to see it.
Most people (if honest) watched from week to week just to see what he'd do next. I loved watching him and hope to have an opportunity to see more in the future. I would love to see him take the prize -and then see where this goes. I believe he above all will make the most of the award. I think He wants it the most.
I thought the added challenge was ridiculous and over-the-top / totally not needed. You can see the exhaustion all over their faces. I soooo felt for the designers. Very cruel.
I hated the "us against you" aspect of the show - Daniel & Chloe against Santino. It made me squirm. It seems ironic that everyone wanted to bring Santino to task but didn't acknowledge their own trash talk. This was, I guess, what makes for "good TV".
Whether people buy or don't buy Santino's past (or believe it's being used as a ploy), it definitely defines and explains more of who he is. I thought this aspect of the show was good for all 3 designers.
Can't wait for next week! Only sorry it will end.

I feel like I'm watching an entirely different show than Project Runway, Season 1. Last year's Finale showed two collections which actually merited being shown 'for real' at Fashion Week. Jay's work was innovative and exciting, Kara Saun's was sleek, sensual, professional and glamorous. Every piece contributed to their collection's point of view. This season look's like some 'poor cousin' knock-off show on a local cable feed. Minimally talented designers, mostly un-thrilling, derivative clothes (I can count on one hand the few great pieces,) horribly contrived storylines, and insane, non-sensical judging. New rules (like no immunity for winning,) removed any incentive for 'already playing-it-safe' designers to aspire to anything but safe designs. I feel like I never saw color the whole season...with the exception of Nick's Barbie. Even designers who started strong had the fire stomped out of them by mid-season. Furthermore, the whole finale was depressing...because nothing could make these clothing lines anything better than mediocre. But to remove any chance of working them to their greatest advantage with great make-up design, hair concepts, fittings, just the right models...we saw all the time necessary for that sucked up by a 13th garment addition. The viewers missed out on watching what was a fascinating process...the real last-minute, behind the scenes mania of producing a fashion show. Model selection was like a 2 second blink, unlike the huge deal it was last year...where designers fought for the looks that would enhance their individual visions. But the worst is the look of the clothing...3 MONTHS and 8,000 dollars produced a whole lot of nothing new and nothing special. Maybe next season, producers will cast for talent, not TVQ. I would love it if Finale, part 2 proves all my complaints without merit. I'm just so sad and frustrated by the way this is going so far. Obviously I was a huge fan of PR.
