Thursday 9:00 PM on LifetimeBetween Seasons
I am so glad Gretchen didn't win three in a row. I think her designs are beautiful, but when she talks down to the other designers, I tend to focus more on what she says and not on her great designs! If she doesn't spend to much time arguing with the other designers, I'm sure she's going to Bryant Park.
Gretchen reminds me too much of Irinia from season 6. Also a strong designer, but that attitude! This year's "phrase of the season" comes from her also; student work. I've heard it about ten times already, and I'm afraid that won't be the end of it... I'd rather listen to Tim Gunn's catchphrase.
I haven't been able to see last night's episode yet but I am DYING to see the Tim Gunn smackdown. and about time Gretchen got some negativity in her direction. Noone is terrific all of the time - and how nasty was she when others were in the bottom. This is how it feels. Hopefully she'll let her designs do the talking from now on. A proverb about pride.......
EDIT! Ok, I have now seen the episode. What kind of nasty piece of work is Gretchen? Honestly - and she totally deserved the comments that Tim made about her. She has got a big head and needs to get over herself - she's designed a couple of pieces of clothing (neither of which i would wear incidentally), she hasn't found a cure for cancer.
I don't think the judges were fair though - they asked people who the weak designer was and then Heidi was all "it's easy to point the finger". Of course people will point the finger if they are being asked to do so? WTF.
Can someone please explain to me why zips = edgy? And do people in fashion think that nobody over 25 wears clothes? Why is everything about yoof?
Still, a brilliant piece of television. Human nature at it's very worst.
Is it just me, or is there so much bychiness this season? Gretchen's a great designer, but those early wins really went to her head. And Ivy needs to really get over herself. Mondo is a dark horse. He has shown some super scary brilliance.
I thought is was superfunny when Ivy complained about how Michael C. supposedly accused her of being this seasons b**. Ivy: "I really just need to focus on getting to the end of this competition". That made me laugh! Well, stop stabbing the others in the back then!
Is it just me or did they not show "larger then life" on lifetime, i have every other episode, and when i search it does not even have a repeate of it? Maybe im crazy but i think they left it out. anyone else?
I'm happy to see, that the judges finally decided to send Michael C. home. I didn't like his chocolate coloured colection at all. But what a drama he made from his elimination. This guy has some serious family issues.
I think the win will be between Mondo and Andy, with a big tendency to Mondo. He does a lot of great looks.
this was the first season I ever watched of this show and after the joke of a choice in winning designers in the finale, I will never fall for their bad taste again. Its a joke what passes for fashion these days and this show proves it. Boring ugly Boring granolas "fashions" won? ! Andy's stuff was BY FAR the most beautiful AND functional that NORMAL people would wear and feel good about paying that much money. Some of MAndos stuff was okay but as a hispanic ,I found his Dia de los Muertos inspired-line garish and cartoonishly hideous. I see old hispanic ladys wearing that ugly tee at bingo.
