Twitter Love

I feel so loved. Betsey Johnson and Korto Momolu are following me on Twitter. Although Betsey seems to follow anyone who follows her, and isn’t a spambot. But still, I’m feelin’ the love.

Now if only I had something relevant to tweet, eh? Something besides the weather, or what I’m cooking.

Note to self: Blog more. Take more pictures of daily outfits. Don’t be lazy.

Read Tavi’s blog to stay motivated, when needed. Think outside the box. Don’t be boring.

The Fashion Show on Bravo

Did you see the premiere last week?

After last year’s inaugural season, I had some mixed feelings about how successful I expected the show to be the second time around. But they’ve revamped the format just enough — and they brought in Iman to replace Kelly Rowland… I mean really, it’s Iman!!! — to make me curious.

After watching last week, I love what they’ve done! Instead of individual designers always competing against each other (a la Project Runway) they’ve split the contestants into two “fashion houses” to compete against each other (a la Red Kitchen and Blue Kitchen in Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, another fave of mine). Losing team means one contestant goes home.

My immediate favorite to win, and the same one who won the opening challenge, was Cesar. Kinda loved his point of view. First love-to-hate award goes to the pretentious Calvin, although his line, “Oh no, here go hell come,” was so tweetworthy, I considered pausing the DVR and grabbing the laptop (but didn’t).

So November this year means no Project Runway and no Rachel Zoe, but we do have the Fashion Show. Kinda psyched for tomorrow, are you?

Project Runway finale… well?

I’ve been slow to blog about much of anything with Project Runway since this season began. It became clear, with all his wins, that Mondo would be the certain winner, but the real story (I felt) was which two would accompany him.

And then? And then, Gretchen won. And Heidi and Jessica & Nina and Madame Kors argued voraciously, and tweets were twittered, and vlog’s appeared, like Tim’s…

…which makes you wonder if Tim has pushed it to the point of being fired (would they dare?) from the show for speaking his truth.

But I agreed that Gretchen’s collection had a cohesive feel, it was in keeping with the collection she had made all season (wearable separates with a distinctly granola feel). But Chloe’s hippy chic has been in keeping for decades, and I even mentioned that someone like Gretchen would do well to intern next at Diane von Furstenberg. She has the eye for prints (although I know many a ho that hated Gretchen’s tastes) and she plays with unusual hemlines, and necklines, which is also very much in keeping with a lot of DVF. Diane could polish Gretchen’s rough edges.

And Mondo? Mondo has a vision, for certain, but his collection was the kissing cousin to Seth Aaron’s from last season. Neon color, oversize graphic prints, tons of plaid, all the same earmarks as Seth Aaron’s. So while Mondo’s talent is beyond dispute, I think he would flourish under the guidance of Betsey Johnson (did ya see her cameo? so cute, love me some Betsey).

And Mondo would KILL it at Heatherette.

Lastly, there’s Andy. His draping was gorgeous, but why the judges gave him a pass on the most monotone color story I’ve seen (sea foam, anyone?) but crucified Michael C. for the same issue? Don’t get it. Just don’t.

The big boy bloggers are feeling pretty “over it” about PR. I agree, it would be nice to drop so many 1 day challenges, and focus on something more design oriented again.

But I will keep watching. (Shrug) Addict.
