Project Runway All Start ep 2

PR All Stars Ep 2 Quick round up of the catwalk!

Michael is repeating his whingeing this ep, you don’t own the fucking colour red!

And now to the outfits – there was VERY little drama last week.

Kenley, bad remake of the 80’s prom dress. Molly Ringwald did it better!

Rami darling 2 things, your skirt is horrid and makes her look big. Second the colour ALL wrong for your girls skin tone! You are SO much better than this – we get it you can do stuff that’s not draping!

Gordana Gehlhausen, love the 20’s feel, not keen on the panels or the fishing net on the top. It would have been more interesting to have had the netting extend the full length of the dress and ditched the V odd panels. Not loving not hating.

Mila Hermanovski average and expected – not to say it’s bad but it’s forgettable which is great if your girl is promoting something. She’ll look awesome but the dress won’t get in the way. I’d have been happier  if you’d done something unexpected with the accesories. And yes, my red gown for final collection is very expected but I’m not on bloody PR All Stars 😉

Sweet P darling your girl did not look like Cinderella unless she’s pregnant and living in a double wide. The fabric is sweet and lovely and you could have done something really fantastic and unexpected but you didn’t. The dress made me sad.

Mondo, I love you, you mexi pixi you, but really? BAD mother of the bride dress, this dress made me eat chocolate.

Jerell Scott, why? Why did you raid the soft furnishings from the 70’s theme bar down the street? Why? She looks like a walking bloody sofa man! The skirt is in a really soft material and looks heavy. And breathe!

Kara Janx young and youthful she is NOT. You used sad curtain material and she looks like she should be in The Sound of Music. Oh, and the hem is uneven.

Anthony Williams there is a touch of the drag queen about this but I like it – betcha shocked aren’t you! – I like the gloves but think if you’re going to go with styling as strong as them you need to keep the rest of it hard. Her hair was too soft at the back and the shoes were average.

Austin Scarlett I love this dress. I could have lived without the black tulle tbh and think the bodice design would have worked on it’s own if done in a flat metallic instead. You don’t look at this dress and think that’s a days work and you do with most of the others so far with the exception of Mondo and Kenley.

April Johnston lovely, wtf were you thinking? If your dye had worked it might have saved the dress but the dye is VERY bad and the dress isn’t good enough for you to overlook it!

Michael Costello it’s no big secret that I hate the whineyness of this person and wonder if he’s in denial as he pings my gaydar quite a bit, but this dress is FABULOUS. I even like the feathers and I’m not a feathery person. Not loving the strap at the back, I get why it’s there but I think the dress is enough without it.

And Sweet P is Auf’d for me it would be hard to choose which of the garments by Sweet P and Jerell I dislike the most. I’d like to say Jerell cos I love the P but I think they made the right decision.

I’d have been happy if either Michael or Austin had won based solely on the garments – that feels so good to say after the last few seasons of PR that we can judge based on design not drama! And Austin wins – yay!

I’m probably a little harsh – shall we blame my hormones or rather, this is all stars and my expectations are HIGH!

On a general note I’m LOVING the fact the judges are making sense and giving out constructive criticism and Joanna Coles is VERY good in Tim Gunn’s role, but I am missing him.

Can ANYONE remember what the perfectly nice woman is called who’s hosting this?

Having annoyed another group of designers I’m Auf!




The Golden Globes

Because I can 🙂

Melissa Macarthy in Badgley Mischka

Love that she’s in Badgley Mischka, hate the colour, the fact it’s a big girl cliche gown and her hair. Love her though! Dressing for your shape is important but this isn’t it.

Connie Britton in who the hell knows?

For our UK readers you may have seen her in Spin City.  Sweetie, there’s vintage and there’s charity shop rummage bin. This is a red carpet event please dress for it, going shopping down town it’s ok to dress like this but the RC needs more hon! HATE the shoes, love the clutch but not with this dress.

Diane Lane in Reem Acra.
Love this it’s Hollywood glamour old skool! At first glance I thought this was Catherine Zeta Jones but it isn’t. Daine Lane our UK audience will know her more for the fact she’s Josh Brolin’s wife. Love the accessories – the clutch is enough to commit mild violence over. FABULOUS dahlink!

Emma Stone in Lanvin.

Nice to see somebody in colour but I’m not sure about the panels at the side. Not loving the bag but the belt is freaking awesome. Teeny bit goth and I LOVE that. Liking the hair as well.

Kate Beckinsale in Roberto Cavalli.

Usually don’t have a bad word to say about her but could you have done this in colour? Other than that MISS THANG!

Kelly Macdonald in Lorena Sarbu

Kelly? Why are you wearing a mu-mu? Nice bag though.

Mirelle Enos in Naeem Khan

Erm, before anyone says I’m gingerist I live with a ginger person – 2 if you include The Cub. This is not a good colour for gingers. I’m not sure about the bodice shape either but I quite like the skirt.

Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen.

I know she’s been caned by the critics for her hair but I like it. Why shouldn’t she dye it any colour she wants? Don’t like Zac Posen frocks though they never seem to quite work. Kell, you look awesome on the weight loss though.

Julianna Marguiles in Naeem Khan

I love the fact that you went with a colour, but this? This is all your stylist could come up with? Another freaking mu-mu which makes you look shapeless – I’ve seen you on The Good Wife, you’ve got curves, werq them!

Helen Mirram in Badgley Mischka

Saw this and jumped up and freaking down. How awesome does she look? The colour is great, the accessories are phenomenal and her hair is sublime. Queen Helen does it again!

Yes, there were a lot of other badly and well dressed slebs but Queen Helen won the night for me.

Well I’ve pissed off another load of slebs, stylists and designers so my work here is done.

Till next time!



Random stuff and me me me!

Hello all, did you miss me?

I missed you!

First off, a link to another blog site Tom & Lorenzo, they are fabulous and opinionated – says so right there in the header! – they also make me laugh harder than any other fashion bloggers out there. They are responsible for many laugh out loud moments when I should have been doing something at college. Go follow them on Facebook and Twitter, tell them I sent you!

Quick fashion round up
A friend sent me the link to this site QooQoo, they are based in Latvia (great fashion knows no boundaries!) I think the stockings are stupidly cool. I can see many cool kids wearing them and looking fabulous in a way that only people under the age of 25 can! I would most definitely have worn these when younger.

Florence Welch leaving Radio 1

Designer Unknown
Flo! I LOVE you, you are fabulous and this generations Stevie Nicks. You have no idea how pleased I am that you aren’t wearing some uber serious brand like Chanel or Dior (I love both btw) and dressing far beyond your years. You don’t know how much I’ve prayed for you to wear something new, young, quirky, vintage and flirty, but Flo THIS IS NOT IT. This, is your designer raiding their mothers old 70’s curtains and churning out a shapeless suit with 80’s trousers! Remember this Flo?
Designer Unknown but probably vintage
Remember being all quirky and ethereal whilst rocking walking boots? I’d like that Flo back now pleassssseeeeeeee!

Film round up
I’ve been watching a lot of films recently, when I say watching I mean they’ve been on in the background whilst I’ve been working for college or playing with The Cub (age appropriate natch!). Here are a few of my favourites:
The Big Lebowski – I know loving this film makes me not really a girl as females apparently don’t get or like this film but I think it’s AWESOME. It’s not my go to movie when I want cheering up, that comes later in the list, but, if I’m happy then this will make me even happier have had to use a link as unable to embed this particular video but it’s YouTube if you’re worried and not child or office friendly!
Parenthood – I love this film, I refuse to consider it a guilty pleasure, for me it’s just pleasure. This film cheers me up from my darkest moods and I refuse to analyse why in case it ruins it for me. Again not child or office friendly but we’re all adults and if you’re at work you should be working and reading my blog of course!
The Green Lantern – ANY film with Ryan Renolds is going to be a feast for the eyes but I enjoyed this as he’s really funny and got great timing – feel free to disagree, but you’re wrong.
This is NOT a picture of Ryan Renolds!
And me me me!
I’ve been super busy over the last few weeks as I’ve been doing a report and writing a written proposal for college, the latter is done now and I’ll be posting that over the weekend to give you and idea of what my collection is about. For now here’s a taster of some of the images:
The Illustrator work is all mine!
Until the weekends dahlinks!
Mwah mwah!
