My absolute favorite look from the London runways is this shattered mirror pantsuit from Tom Ford, which screams I’M A DISCO BALL, BITCHES.
I’m certain that any designer who got Jamie as their superfan model was going to win. She already had a model’s body and the mere acts of removing her glasses and chopping off her hair made her look like a different person.
The Blonds have become one of my favorite shows to watch each season because they are soooo over the top and out there and covered in sparkles. None of this has any practical wearability and I don’t care. I want to walk around dressed like this just so I can feel like a 1960s sci-fi villainess.
Thom Browne can say whatever he wants about being inspired by Judi Dench as Elizabeth I in Shakespeare in Love, but we know better. That’s straight up Joker make-up on those models. Those girls are all haute couture Harley Quinn’s.
Props to Helen, who was able to make exercise clothes that would still be an appropriate costume for the goth narrator in a poem about the existential pain of going to the gym.
Everyone on this show must be on crack. There’s no other explanation for their fawning over the shoes Marie Claire loaned for this challenge. Most of those shoes were fug, as if they were Belk remainders.
I LOVE how Tim Gunn says “Use the Belk accessory wall strategically” whereas he ALWAYS used to say “Use the Corporate Sponsor accessory wall wisely.” I think “strategically” is code for “This is our trashiest, most hideous accessory wall ever. Don’t use any of that cheap-a$$, made in China $h!t.”
All that bitching and Ken makes this. Also, “I don’t make clothes for 40 year old women.” WTF? You don’t make clothes for the women who would actually have the disposable income to afford your overpriced $h!t? That’s a GREAT business plan, Ken. Take your little bow tie tattoo to Forever 21 and stay there.
Sandro gave me a great idea for a new fashion reality show: every week, one designer and one home sewist face off in a sewing battle. Twelve hours, one garment. I would be very interested in seeing how that would play out and who would win.
