Ok we got a lot of ground to cover here so lets get right to it. I was looking forward to this episode because I love Drag Queens. Always have, always will, how can you not? I was happy to see Chris March make an appearance and hear that laugh of his one more time.
This was the challenge where everyone was encouraged to go over the top in their design. Some of them did and some of them didn't, take a guess who didn't? I'll get to that in a minute. But first the winner!
Tim Gunn said it best on his blog, "Isn't it ironic that our only hetero male would win this challenge? Congratulations, Joe!" That's right! Joe, who was probably the biggest fish out of water in this challenge, totally went for it and knocked it out of the park! Personally, I thought Varla Jean Merman was absolutely adorable. And you know I LOVE the anchors! Where do you get those earrings???
Now for the loser and not so fabulous design:
Once again, Daniel decided to play it safe and go by his own rules and made a pretty average gown but it was brilliant and couture in his mind. I am SO glad he got sent home because I was done with him and his ego. Sad thing is, I don't think he's going to take anything away from this experience except for some 15 minutes of fame. Unless he's open to criticism and coming out of his safety zone, he's not going to get very far.
Something I wanted to bring up is an article in this week's New York Magazine, America's Next Top Fashion Editor. Its about Nina Garcia and Anne Slowey. Have you noticed this season that Nina is now the "Editor-At-Large" for Elle Magazine on PR? It's because she's not really at Elle anymore. Apparently it's just crazy over there and they got rid of her. She's now the Fashion Director of Marie Claire. Good for her.
And about Anne Slowey? The CW Network is planning to release their own reality show this Fall starring Ann (now Fashion Editor for Elle) entitled Stylista. It is another competition show where aspiring fashion editors will go at it to be a Junior Editor under Slowey but the way the article puts it, it's gonna be Hell's Kitchen meets The Devil Wears Prada. There's enough crazy bitches on television if you ask me.
