Project Runway All-Stars: Episode 1: A Mixed 'Blessing'
As for the all-stars, some definitely deserve to be there like Mondo, Gordana, and Kara. But what the hell was that Elisa woman doing there? She was the one who spat on her designs (as a "blessing") and created that monstrosity that looked like it was shitting fabric--one of the worst dresses ever done on Project Runway. Thank God she got eliminated right off the bat. When that Marie Claire editor visited her in the workroom, the mentor looked like a deer caught in the headlights and she was thinking "This woman is nuttier than Michele Bachmann eating from a can of Planters' Assorted...Unsalted."
I really thought Sweet P was gonna get the axe because of her dishrag pinaya housedress. It looked like something the maid would wear for an especially dusty house--all she would have to do is roll around on top of the furniture and she's done! And some of the judges actually seemed to like Elisa's storybook swimsuit with the bat wings.
I want Mondo to win (even though that head rag and the single earring he was sporting was crazytown...he made up for it with the cool straw hat-and-Eddie Munster ensemble he wore on the runway.) He should have won his season instead of the crunchy granola girl who did. The Israeli guy who did win this week (I'll remember more of their names by next week) has bulked up since his season. Though his pecs and biceps are more impressive, I thought his outfit was too costume-y with those weird shoulder puffs.
I DVRed the first episode not knowing there was sneak peak of 24 Hour Catwalk right after. I will have give that show a try.
