The Judges of "Project Runway" Star in "Mean Girls"
Fabric choices are always a critical point for any good designer on “Project Runway,” but being able to create your own fabric speaks volumes. (Or is it yards? Oh, puns!)
Because this episode was filled with more fun surprises than I know how to articulate into a single blog post, let’s focus on the essential moments to remember:
- Even Tim (subliminally) wishes the Bromance of Emilio and Seth Aaron would live on for another episode! I nearly died when he thought Emilio’s custom print read “SA <3 ES”. All that was missing was the “4EVA.” (For a closer look at his fabric swatch to continue the debate, check out Rate the Runway or Emilio’s "Project Runway" Portfolio.)
- The folks in the editing suite apparently omitted the scene where Mila drove to Donny Osmond’s house and stole his costume from his days in “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” to use as her fabric. (… and azure and lemon and russet and gray and purple and white and pink and orange and blue!)
- I actually had an answer to Anthony’s rhetorical question regarding Beyoncé songs that satisfied his strict criteria (answer: “Listen,” from her album “BDay,” for the win, thank you) … until he got up to that part about Oprah and his Uncle Leroy and porn addiction. (I may have some hope on a future Sasha Fierce record.)
- I want one of those crazy HP touch-screen computers. I don’t know what I’d do with it, other than hold demonstrations of its awesomeness, but I’m sure people I don’t even know would be envious of me.
- Did Jonathan get confused with Bernie Madoff or something? Every single judge spewed forth venomous comments, the likes of which I have never heard in seven seasons of “Runway.” Even “No, Nina! No!” from Santino’s infamous deer-models-wearing-lingerie showdown in Season 2 seemed tame compared to the sinister steam rising this time around.
“Dirty tablecloth”? “Disco straitjacket”? “Looks poor”? “I feel sad”? Back off, people! Back off! The one thing I can say is that Jonathan has presumably watched some serious amounts of “Law & Order” reruns, because only Jack McCoy himself could pull off such a composed response under such strain. (If you can handle even more awkward “Mean Girl” moments of cruelty against poor Jonathan Peters, be sure to watch his Extended Judging clip, because you ain’t seen NOTHING yet.)
As “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” plays softly in my head, Anthony Williams packs up his workroom belongings and flips off that fictitious light switch under the table before heading into the fabulous sunset … only to be interrupted by Episode 11’s ominous preview. What? Is? Going On?
I think we’re all going to want to tune in next week. DVRs not allowed for this one!
