Project Runway Recap:
(OK, so I’m a day late and a dollar short. You get what you pay for around here! Was someone besides me supposed to write the recap this week?)
So, considering the subject matter, how was it possible this show was so TAME? I mean, really, drag queens! Can you imagine what Santino or Christian or even Chris March would have done with these, er, ladies? And for those of you wondering, when refering to a drag queen, you use the pronoun appropriate for the way he/she is dressed. At least according to my gay cousin… and the many Halloween celebrations I attended in the Castro in my pre-church days- but we don’t talk about that.
As I was saying- am I the only one the tiniest bit disappointed in the goods this week? When Tim Gunn, the Master of Good Taste, says to ‘’be theatrical and over the top'’ shouldn’t a person listen?? Talk about carte blanche to go wild with the sequins and feathers… The only one way over the top was Terri, whose scary samurai/geisha get-up RuPaul called a ‘’Gene Simmons-Diana Ross love child.
Per normal, Korto whipped out her mad sewing skills and produces something fabulous. Cher-oin made something black and biker, Blain/Suede (can’t tell them apart, equally annoying) whined and made up words, the Lisa Loeb girls faded into the background, and the solo straight guy looked terrified by the whole deal, and yet managed to pull a win out with the Anne Margaret Love Boat pink sequined get-up.
And in the end, sensitive and bland Daniel, who has twice now ignored the advice of Master Tim, kissed Heidi and was auf’d with no regrets. He had to know he was on borrowed time after the Olympic cocktail dress, didn’t he? Yawn.
Next week, famous for nothing, Rachel Zoe, the celebrity stylist responsible for the Hollywood trend of unhealthily thin girls in large sunglasses with larger purses and fake tans. That ought to be good!
