Project Runway 3 - Page 8

post #106 of 139
Thread Starter 
I was just about to post something since I just caught a rerun of last night's episode. Here are my thoughts: Jeffrey's collection looks really good. Laura is a snotty bitch who can't handle anyone performing better than she has. With all of her resources (that HUGE flat--for christ's sake we only saw the living room and it's bigger than my entire house; that LV luggage; the whole "I've never had the resources to start my own line..." blah blah blah bullshit.) she might not succeed and she's taking it out on Jeff. She even says at one point in the next episode "we're friends" (which Jeffrey calls her on). Then why the hostility when you all get back together for the final week of prep? I really dislike this woman as a person. But Laura's clothes are gorgeous. They are just the thing I like to see. I generally don't like Uli's stuff anyway, so no surprise I don't like this stuff. I didn't get much of a sense of Michael's collection. I do tend to like what he does so I expect it will be good. The preview for the final episode seems to show Jeffrey crying and being hugged by Uli and it gave me the distinct impression he's being kicked off. Total BS in my mind. I don't know the Truth with a capital T, but he is correct in saying that he got his experience sewing hundreds of garments by hand. He has years of experience doing this stuff and the rest really don't. Especially Laura. Why be shocked that he comes back after two months with pieces that are perfectly completed. And that they fit the models perfectly is dumb-luck. He couldn't have planned that. b

I know. The editing totally makes these shows. Esp. the editing of previews. I don't think Jeffrey'll be kicked off. We probably just saw him break down from pressure/excitement or relief that he didnt get kicked off. I think his stuff looked really good, too. Looking forward to seeing everyone's stuff on the runway.

I agree about Laura, the clothes did look stunning -on the rack at least -

I got the impression that Micheal didn't have his act together, or at least not much done.

Good show...and who can get tired of looking at Heidi Klum?!!

Jeffery is shown on Bravo's website for fasion week, so I dont think he gets the boot.

omgomgomg - i wont spoil for anyone but i do agree with the final decision - had much conflict over it at first but the more i think about it, the more i agree with. it was clearly the most innovative collection.

I concur.

grr I was hoping that other semi-finalist would take it!

All the work was really quite remarkable...even though there were things I didn't like, I couldn't do it either. PR is the only 'reality' show I have ever watched. I appreciate that it does not seem to be a zero-sum game; most of the designers benefit a great deal from the show, not just the winners. Somehow that seems more elegant than all the Survivor &c garbage, even with the tensions in this offering. Yet, the Chef show has so much more angst and rancor that I couldn't enjoy it. Was surprised that I expected more from some of the finalists and got less. Expected less from some and got more. Never can tell. I thought it was poor form for Kors to wear sunglasses throughout the Bryant Park showing. Tim, however, seems sharp enough to make up for him though. Regards, Huntsman

Uli's show was the best. But over the course of the entire season, Jeffrey has definitely shown his talent. He still seems like an asshole though.

Uli only does one thing, though. She does it extraordinarily well, but she has one theme and a few variations. Jeffrey actually had ideas, which sometimes worked and sometimes didn't, but in the end I'd rather them reward innovation and risk.

Regardless, though, I'm just glad that megabitch Laura didn't win. Words cannot express how much I loathed her by the end. Jeffrey actually impressed me a little by not calling her out after she feigned relief that she hadn't managed to weasel him off the show. If it was me, I would have had a few choice words for her.

I expected the least from Uli, but she surprised and impressed me the most. Even the WalMart buyer was interested in her designs. I think she'll have the most commercial success of the four.

Laura's garments were fantastic, elegant, but very one-dimensional. Similar to the impression that she personally projects, she'd be a good haute-couture designer.

Michael's collection was dissapointing. He could not break out of the hip-hop/streetwear mold.

Jefferey's collection was edgy, like himself. He is the most daring of the four.

Strange - I saw Jeff sporting the capri pants with boots look, but I don't recall seeing it on any of his models! His collection popped, though.

You think so? I thought his problem was that he didn't do enough sporty streetwear. His best stuff this year (the jackie brown shorts, the seersucker outfit) were not flashy eveningwear. I thought he had some cool prints in there, but suffered from Uli doing similar things better.

I thought it was odd they implied that a designer should be excited that WalMart was interested. I mean, money is money, but nothing says watered-down mediocrity like WalMart.

Could anyone identify the cute chick sitting next to Daniel Vostovic?
