The fact that she is interviewing in the same outfit she wore to the final runway makes me think she is out this episode! Don’t they usually get all the interviews later?
Carolyn enters the runway in a long, glittering, flowing gown. It’s a tad voluminous but I think she looks refreshingly good. She would look great except for her hair. Maybe the L’Oreal team was too busy with the models to get to her.
Roots! It’s not just a movie starring the guy from Reading Rainbow!
Uli and Pancake have dressed for the occasion as well. I never knew how many people were obsessed with the 20s. Then again I love Boardwalk Empire (read Vallegirl’s great recaps of past seasons!) and Downtown Abbey so I may be part of the problem.
Some people in this picture know how to drink like a lady. Some people in this picture look like they’re deep-throating a hoagie.
It turns out all the designers are seated at high tops with their competition, speak-easy style.
If you end up on this blind date, you know your friends hate you
Mommie Dearest and The Littlest Hobo
We are introduced to the usual judges – Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina, Queen of the Damned, and the two guest judges. This week it is Gretchen Mol seemingly because she is on a show that is set in the challenge time period, and Jenny Packham whose intro bio is so long I fell asleep. Apparently off-the-rack Princess Kate Middleton is a fan.
I never realized how much she resembles Kate Hudson
If you really wanted to be a famous designer, you would let a fat American producer sweat all over you
Joshua – His look walks and wears well. It’s pretty but I don’t think it’s very period and it strikes me as way more casual and contemporary.Also the random broach placed on his model’s hip is not working.
Dead Mauth – His dress is very Ladies Who Lunch, but not exactly from the 1920s. I’ve watched enough Downtown Abbey to know neither of these looks would be found on Lady Grantham. Dead Mauth’s is better of the two though.
Uli – She does this genre well and her model looks great. I love the fringe and the lines and the silver shoulder wrap.
Saint Pancake – Her look is basically the same thing she wears herself every week. Wide legged elephant trousers and a vest. I do love her beaded material and the blouse portion looks great, but I’m giving Uli the win.
