Sexist much?

I love Top Chef and I love Twitter, but this is kinda beyond the pale:

PR live-blog 5.13: "Finale Part 1"

I thought Leanne would live in a treehouse.

Jerell’s mother and sister are stunning. His collection looks pretty unfinished. Uh oh. Continue reading

PR live-blog 5.11: "Rock n' Runway"

As ever, times are Central because I totally am.

8:02: Five designers! Eight models! The designers get to pick new models. Leanne steals Tia from Suede – burn! – and Korto keeps Katerina. Kenley picked Joe’s old model Topacio. I’m thinking of changing my name to something exotic like Propeesha.

8:04: Designers head to the workroom, where Tim explains the challenge: they will be designing for each other. Suede has Jerell, Kenley will design for Leanne, Korto gets Suede, Jerell pulls Kenley, which leaves Leanne designing for Korto. They must each create a look inspired by a specific musical genre. Patrick IM’s that if this is not the best challenge of the season, and I finish with “it will be a waste”. Continue reading

PR live-blog 5.10: "Transformation"

All times CT.

8:00: What’s up? I still think Kenley’s super annoying! How about you?

8:01: Suede’s gotta prove himself. Kenley doesn’t get why she was in the bottom in the last challenge. She’s gonna stick to her strategy, which is to stay true to herself and ignore the judges’ criticism. Read: keep turning out her tired 50’s-esque costumery.

8:02: Runway! The models, who are some regular-looking ladies, come out on the runway. They may be somebody’s mothers, but not the designers’. So who are they? Not the clients, but the mothers of their clients, twenty-something White girl recent college graduates, brought in by their moms for makeovers into grown-up working ladies.

8:04: Patrick is upset that they are not hot. The designers get randomly matched to models by the Bag o’ Buttons, and then proceed to the workroom to get details from Tim.

8:05: Uncle Tim! He sends the clients in with their models, warning that the mothers are sure to have strong opinions. So really, they have two clients, 30 minutes to consult, and $100 to spend at Mood. Joe is concerned about the mother-daughter dynamic where if mom likes, daughter won’t.

8:06: Anna sucks up to Kenley, and the feeling is mutual. They’re mutually cute and annoying. This is going to be awesome. Anna’s mom thinks they’re both adorable. Continue reading

PR live-blog 5.9: "What's Your Sign"

8:00: There’s nothing that gets my tv-watching motor running like a team challenge based on team member astrological signs. NOTHING.

8:01: Terri is crabby (what’s her sing-song “Ding dong the witch is dead” thing about? when did she have beef with Stella?) while Kenley is, surprise surprise, confident that she will win. Continue reading

PR live-blog: 5.5 "Welcome to the Jungle"

8:00: Daniel pumps iron! Keith looks good all sweaty! Blayne is all “Team Dramalicious!” as the designers head back to the runway to learn about their next challenge. But Heidi tells them to go back to the showroom, where Tim will give them the deets.

8:02: Blayne hopes the high powered, chic, professional woman they have to design for is not Hillary Clinton, as he can’t do a neon pantsuit. Which I think would be right up his alley. Continue reading

PR live-blog: 5.4 "Rings of Glory"

All times Central unless otherwise noted. Like that would ever happen.

7:52: 8 minutes to go…

8:01: Patrick thinks it’s a waste of time to show the designers waking up the morning after a challenge. I have to agree — what’s to show if none of them are hooking up? Bo-ring. Patrick also thinks they should do a challenge on no sleep, a la the wedding wars challenge on the last season of Top Chef. I’d be down with that. Continue reading

PR live-blog: 5.3 "Bright Lights/Big City"

8:04: Tim looks hot in that raincoat. The designers, wearing orange plastic ponchos for their double decker bus tour, do not. The designers are dropped off at random locations to take pictures that will inspire their outfits for the challenge, which is to make outfits inspired by New York City at night.

8:08: Would it be wrong if I renamed Leanne and Emily “Feist 1” and “Feist 2”? Continue reading

PR5.2: Pre-order Suede's winning dress

Suedes winning dress for PR5.2, The Grass Is Always Greener

Suede's winning dress for PR5.2, "The Grass Is Always Greener"

Guess what you can pre-order now from Bluefly.com? It looks darling, no? It’s priced at $280, which I think is terribly reasonable, but only 150 are being made. Not so reasonable, so e-mail your size info to nana.brewhammond@bluefly.com to reserve today.

PR5.2: live-blog

Note: All times are Central. Deal with it, suckers.

8:00: “Any decision involving Suede not going home is a good one.” How about changing your name?

8:02: Kelli gets first pick at the models, so she sticks with her model from the first. Jerell is salty because Jennifer took his model. Ooh! And Belle is out, even though she was super-cute.

8:04: Next challenge is cocktail dresses, where the models are clients. The designers head off to the workroom, where Tim fills them in on the details. Green fabrics — cool but kinda ho-hum. The twist? The models are going to pick the material. Uh-oh. Continue reading
