Wow. Who would have thought that Emilio would have such an effect on Tim? Granted, Emilio is an insufferable ass, but I have never seen Tim so cool towards a contestant before. Jay threw himself into Tim’s arms. Mila got kisses and Seth Aaron got the big bear hug. Then it’s time to greet Emilio, and he gets the straight arm hand shake. Ouch. Serves you right, Emilio. Raspberries.
But back to the beginning…
Tim Gunn on a trampoline! Now I have seen it all. I think the apron and biscuits was cuter, though. Seth Aaron was the designer I instantly disliked. Boy has he won me over. I can’t wait to see his collection next week. Tim thought SA needed to rethink his entire collection. Yikes. But does he give Tim crap? Does he spout arrogant bull? No. He takes the advice and stews on it and makes a decision. Take a lesson, Emilio.
Oh Emilio. Oh Lordy. Could you be a bigger jerk? You were showing Tim a bunch of old lady clothes and another “the pattern is my name” fabric. He tells you that they are crap and you again are rude to Mr. Gunn!! You are dead to me.
Jay vs Mila
So, the two runners up duke it out for the last remaining spot at Fashion Week. Lots of tears, lots of “I’m so close I can taste its”. The producers tried to muddy the waters by making them room together. But they made nice and were actually on speaking terms when they were forced to share a table in the work room.
Gee, black and white color blocking. Never would have seen that coming. Impeccable tailoring as always. Nothing new nothing innovative, just retro 60’s styling in shapes that Heidi liked.
Great concept (but I like an Asian aesthetic), color, and shin guards. Loved the shin guards. It was Jay times 5, which he needed to do. I didn’t think it was overworked. It was original and “fashion forward” and everything that Mila’s wasn’t. I really wanted to see what he ended up doing with that amazing coat from Tim’s visit. I was intrigued and looking forward to seeing more. Which, of course, meant that he wouldn’t make it to Bryant Park. And he didn’t. Stupid Nina sided with Heidi and they gave stupid Mila the green light.
I can’t believe they are sending Mila’s tired crap to the finals. It makes me question the judges taste in general. Perhaps they are getting too old…
So next week is the big to do. Let’s hope Seth Aaron puts something amazing down the runway, and that Emilio suffers from an epic fail. And from the looks of his collection in progress, it could easily happen.
As my sister says, “I hate Emilio so much that I wouldn’t wear his clothes if he were the last designer on Earth. I would just walk around in pillow cases or something.” Hear, hear!
