Wonderific!

Friday, August 19th, 2011

Last night’s Project Runway was all sorts of fun and made double your pleasure with the addition of a twitter party that was going fast and furious.

The designers were quaking in their boots when they were put to the test of dressing fab judge and one never without an opinion La Nina Garcia. I’m sure they were all wishing it was the outfit Michael Kors challenge but hey, maybe that torture is next.

Nina didn’t fail us in delivering the goods right from the get go. No wild colors, no crazy prints and now we know cowls are banned! Not to grace her lovely neck. And the “No’s”, I lost count two minutes after Tim lead her carefully into the work room.  Is it me or does Tim lead guests around the workroom as if they are going through a Jurassic Park exhibit?

I have to say I was thrilled with Kimberly’s win though true to Bravo cutting she had me on edge up until the end and I was on the fence even as her look walked down the runway, not knowing what Nina would think of that top.  But her magic gold top of superpower prevailed.

It seemed that top could do no wrong. Giving all power to all women (I’m now wondering if it will go with my writing sweats).

Congrats Kimberly, go forth and conquer. Yes!

As for the eliminated designer I have to shake my head on that one. Yeah Julie’s Droat (Dress/coat LoL Johanna!) was dreadful but I thought Cecilia’s one shoulder mousy give up called her to go. If only the judges could have heard her awful not wanting to be there comment from the back room.

Oh and though I still love a late bloomer, I fear the youngsters may be making Bert a tad bit cantankerous. What’s with the attitude man? I’m not feeling very #TeamBert lately. Though I still think he’s extremely talented I’m wishing there was an Ernie in the mix to cheer him up.

Time to Make It Work

Friday, July 29th, 2011

The fashionististas were back last night with the season premier of Project Runway! I have to say this TV-nistsa couldn’t be happier to see old friends Heidi, Tim, Michael and Nina. And what a refreshing change from my hot mess housewives. Could it be I’m getting a little burned out there?

That said she show started out with a bang with a narrowing down of 4 designers right out of the box. From the very beginning I was Team Bert! I can’t say Bert! Without the exclamation point for some reason he just does that to me. You can look at his home video here and see why. I just love a late bloomer. Go Bert!

I was sorry to see Rafael go he would have made fun TV and I really liked him but those pants? Ugh. So tell me who are you going for this early in the game.

Team Bert! Happy Friday.

Best,

Kwana

I’m In A Mood

Friday, July 30th, 2010

The new season of Project Runway started last night and I’m in a mood. Not in a major mood, a minor one really, but a mood nonetheless. See it’s over two things (well, more but I refule to really brood here):

  1. The show was an hour and a half and I hope this is not the new format because that just doesn’t work for me. Who has the time?
  2. One of the highlights of the show is the weekly trip to Mood fabrics and letting the designers out in the wild so when Tim Gunn talked about the “Mood annex” and opened up a door with a bit of fabric in barrels attached to the workroom I was very disappointed and went to twitter to see I was not alone.  I hope this is rethought.

 

Still I will be back next week with contestants names Mondo and Casanova how can I not? Did you watch?

 Have a great weekend!

Best,

Kwana

10th Photo Mariah slash Beyonce on a budget

Friday, April 30th, 2010

What’s Jack up to? Jack has been an odd one. Very pushy and demanding lately. He wants what he wants when he wants it and is not afraid to show it. A total toddler like dog. So Jack.

The Lovely Debra from Lifescapes tagged me with the 10th post challenge where you are supposed to post your 10th blog photo. Now I had to dig way back to January 2008 for this 10th photo and the post was back when I was blogging Project Runway which I have not been doing for the past 2 seasons though I still watch the show. I will say I was not surprised with the final 2 at all this season but wanted Emilio to win. Ahh well. I also give thanks to Anthony for providing the entertainment this year.

Now this 10th pic was of a Christian Sirano design from one of the challenges. Christian turned out to be the winner and stand out of the show. Attached is a more recent youtube clip of Christian being just Christian. I love that he carries a date book like I do. Beyonce!

 


If you care to play along in the 10 photo post let me know and I’ll come for a visit. I’d love to see your 10th photos.

Best,

Kwana
