Everybody Loves a Clown! (Except Tim Gunn ... and Your Child Model)
This episode was probably one of the more hilarious scenes we've witnessed on the show in a long time. Between Jonathan's pediphobia, which I was afraid would paralyze him into such a state of tiny-person fear that he'd be unable to complete a garment (no less two); Anthony's 14 minutes and 56 seconds of silent time-out in the workroom; and, of course, Amy's so-called clown pants, we had a straight-up fashion circus on our hands!
Poor Amy. With such a strong showing in the Heart Health challenge, she has truly been a contestant to watch. But when Tim Gunn is throwing down the "clown alert!" yellow flag on a challenge that lends itself to fun and, worse still, your very own child model is telling the workroom that your fashionable children's look resembles circus pants you're in some serious trouble. (Et tu, Caitlin?)
Seth Aaron really stepped up his game and showed why he's in it for the long haul this week. His kiddie Hot Topic pink-and-houndstooth look for Sydney was so adorable, I could not even handle it. Plus, a minz purse? Oh em gee! His "mom" look for model Valeria was even better than I anticipated. Her jacket was something a million fashion-forward women would want in their closets, and, as Michael said, one of the most beautifully constructed items all season.
On her very own "Waterworld"-esque planet populated by her own tears and, apparently, no child in sight was Janeane. Quote: "I don't know children. I don't know how to talk to children. I don't know what they like. I don't know what they wear." WOMAN! You were a minor a mere 11 years ago! If you were American supercentenarian Walter Breuning, absolutely. Sure. That insane argument would have some kind of merit, since you were last a child in Grover Cleveland's second administration. But, considering Reagan's is still within recent memory, I wish you and your Halloween garment well. You can watch even more of her head-scratching comments in Janeane's latest video-blog clip now.
