S06.E09: Posen on the Red Carpet 2018.03.08

Oh WOW, that Kelly, damn she was something else. Loved her.  You are so right, it would have made this season so much fun.  Well at least we have Mrs. Anthony.

Josh was the last person so tacky and not on the level of the others that it took focus off Helen. She should be gone next. No way Helen can out design anyone else still there.

A runway finale of Fabio, Anthony and Stanley will be LIIIIFFFFEEEEE!

I liked Anthony's dress, but tbh, I didn't love any of them.  Again.  When Fabio's came down the runway, a ? literally popped up above my head.  That was the strangest, least red carpety garment I could have imagined.  Maybe for Mrs. Yoda or Mrs. Obi-Wan.  But I'm in a fly-over state, so there you go.

I couldn't figure out Fabio's either - it was unique, that's for sure - and, as said upthread and here - very "Star Wars-y"....my thoughts were that if any one wore that dress on any red carpet, the media would have a field day with naming that person the worst dressed of the evening.

For the first time this season, I really liked all of the runway outfits, well, except Joshua's, but I don't know why he is even there.  He should be designing exclusively for the Kartrashians, imo.  They might love those adorable (not) shoes he tried to wear too.

Loved Anthony's except for all the wingy flaps, a little too much maybe.

Do they now get assigned the same model week to week or how does that work?  Stanley had this same gal last week, right?  She is very pretty and elegant in her demeanor, but way too skinny and, to me, it detracts from the appeal of the garment to have her non-boobs totally flattened out.

BTW, what color was Fabio's outfit?  Looks gray to me, my friend says my tv color is off and it was a deep blue.  How did it look to

@cinsays it looked like a slate blue/grey to me. Forward fashion or not I wasn’t enamored by it. Looks like a battleship color in the night.

I think Alyssa is cute as a button, but her fashion taste (or that of her stylist) SUCKS.  Since Day One, she’s always worn WTF outfits.

I believe that her stylist is sleeping with Alyssa's husband (who is Bradley Cooper's agent) and the husband refuses to leave Alyssa, despite the pillow conflict.  The stylist MUST be signaling to him, "See?  See the cow you married!"

Stanley's offering was stunning, but I've seen it a hundred times already! There was nothing that made it stand out besides the color! As much as they liked Fabio's design, again, it's been done! ;-)

Thank god, we don't need another one of those.  But Santino Rice could wear heels that high and walk a runway!

I love Anthony and liked the front of his dress, but how in hell would anyone sit down in that?  It's like a dinosaur costume in the back.  Fabio's was OK but not flattering in the least, and I'm a big fan of the loose clothing.  Stanley's dress on anyone but that one model would not have looked so chic.  So not that great a top 3.

Edmond really is circling the drain.

I think Maya Rudolph would wear the heck out of Fabio's gown based on her Oscars look. I think there is definitely a celebrity market for his style.

Helen designed for Zac Posen after her original season ended. I'm not sure if she still does, but I do think it's a conflict of interest to have a judge assess the work of a contestant he had a relationship with outside of the show.

I won't hate you. 

But I'm definitely giving you Anthony side eye with a tiny, verbal "mmph".

Kidding aside, I thought every design had something pretty to it.

What I liked about Josh was the individual elements, but not the total package.  I did like the curve between the colors and I also liked the colors.

Angela Jolie had a phase a few years back dressing in similar kaftans for the red carpet. She didn't get any worst dressed throwback but it may have been close to the time she had breast surgery. Anyway, I rather like a non body con option for the red carpet.

Edmond's giant rose, on the other hand, was definitely the kind of red carpet dress that would be photographed. People might love it or hate it, but they would remember it (unlike Helen's snooze of a dress). When he said he wanted to do a ruffly rose, all I could think was that the judges told Angela to stop doing her rosettes/fleurchons and Ven to stop making his origami roses. Roses do not go over well with the judges! I agreed with Georgina that the brocade didn't go with the satin rose.

I thought his dress was eye-catching and most definitely could be seen at the Oscars!  Red is one of my favorite colors so maybe I'm a little biased, but I'm a little surprised at the lack of love by the judges.  Disclaimer: back in the dark ages when I went to the prom, the trend was those ruffly, pastel Gunne Sax dresses. "Ugh!" I said. I non-conformistly wore a red disco-ish gown and I'm still glad I did. :) :)

Since when did Helen ever have a "signature" look that included a corset?  That was Candice Cuoco's baby all the way.   What Helen produced here was pitiful, as usual. 

The only design element I ever associate with Helen was the dishwater-dull beige-ish chiffon dresses with shredded edges.  She produced a bunch of those in past seasons.

One of my shorter friends says that she looks up to (no pun intended) the Olsen twins for what they wear.  I'm not short but even I've looked up to what they've been wearing since like 2004.  They've always been far ahead of fashion trends.  Reese Witherspoon is another good one.  MK can be really out there -- too creative for me; but I think Ashley and Reese are extremely chic.  A lot of women seem to like Rachel Bilson as well.  A lot of actors are short and I'm not even talking about designer stuff that's impossible to emulate - they just do well pairing different items and putting outfits together.  Reese's wardrobe on "Big Little Lies" was adorable.

I have to disagree with your last sentence - I don't have anything against Alyssa but I don't think she knows anything about chicness, style, fashion.  Someone suggests a random outfit to her and she agrees.  She's probably never prioritized thinking about this stuff for herself.

I wonder if Alyssa is dressing for the body she used to have vs. the body she currently has. When younger, she had an enviable figure and could wear almost anything and look adorable. She's not the only one in this situation, but she is the one who's on tv where everyone can see her mistakes. She needs to hire new stylists, or a stylist if she's choosing her own outfits.

Ugh, with Helen being the only/last woman, we're probably stuck with her 'til the finale.  Crud.  I find myself going "lalalalalala" every time she gives a talking head.  I cannot STAND her!  Why couldn't Kelly be the last woman standing???

Yay for Anthony!  Yay that Josh is gone!  Yay that we didn't have to have Helen on the runway for the judges critique!  This was almost a perfect episode.  <g>

The suggestion above for a petite/short runway would be good.  We've had plenty of "real" women runways.  I'd also love a big breasted runway.  SO many women in America these days have huge breasts and it's really hard to find clothes that fit without going tent-like

I want to spend a cozy rainy afternoon with Professor Stanley and Fabio in a bistro. They will talk fashion, tell stories, and throw the occasional arch shade. I will listen and laugh. Anthony can come if he doesn't squeal.

I'm not thrilled that so many men are in the finals, especially Josh, Edmund and Ken who are only moderately talented. Josh is clearly the Pissy Drama Ringer.

That said, I like the turn the series has taken. Much less bitchy fighting and nasty drama. We're seeing some pretty clothes. Seeing Mizrahi's and Posen's archives was a treat.

I really liked Fabio's design. Lush smoky blue fabric. Different than everyone else's designs.

Laughed at Anthony and Fabio's big eyes tracking the action between Stanley and Helen.

Josh was completely fine this season until last episode. Then he inexplicably regressed back to his former bitchy self. Maybe he's been biting his tongue all season and couldn't take it anymore. I don't know, but it sucks because I find him entertaining and funny when he isn't acting like a petulant child. Oh well. And what was that no hugging nonsense at the end? 

Helen's also been fine this season except for that one episode. Interesting that Josh gave her words of encouragement as he was leaving. I would love for her to make it to the finale. I often find myself rooting for the underdogs and the ones everyone else seems to hate.

I say this every week.  As a person, I like Edmund.  But omg.  He has gotten so many "second" chances.  His taste is just not good (to me.)

When I saw the color of Fabio’s fabric, I immediately thought, “interior of a car from the 70s-80s.”

Whatever happens this season, it will always be the Season of Anthony for me.  

Big thank to Tara and Sara for providing the Anthony and Ken gif.  I have saved it and will use it as a go to when I need a smile.

I agree that Helen’s should have won (and I don’t love her work). The model wearing orange is so thin that it’s hard to tell whether the dress is flattering.

I’m jumping on the “Alyssa needs a better stylist” bandwagon. Someone help her,

IMO, it would have been one thing had he been able to walk in them like a boss, to use a tired phrase.  But he was clearly unable to pull it off, and therefore looked like he was playing dress up.  Sort of the definition of trying too hard.  For me, the facial hair (which was more pronounced in the IG video) would belie any transitioning happening, wouldn't it?

That Anthony squeal will NEVER get old to me.

Josh spent so much time on that pintucking and the final result just looked sloppy on top of the sleek bottom of that gown.  And his muslin sample reminded me of the technique Maragrita used on her winning shirt-dress.  Not a great choice for a gown and definitely not a signature look for him.

Ken dodged a bullet this week.  That gown was rather tragic.

And I concur on Fabio's design. I thought it was lovely--the flow, the movement, the charcoal blue color, the deep V in the back. Its not for everyone but some women could really rock it.

Fabio's dress was definitely polarizing (I wasn't sure what the judges would think), but I loved it. It's not a dress anyone could, or would want to, wear, but I think it has a cool, easy, minimalist vibe and would have a lot of impact, especially on the right wearer and with the right styling. (I do agree though that the color was a bit meh.) Also, for a challenge that was all about a signature technique, I would have rewarded him since it was so clearly Fabio.

In my mind, the next stage for both Fabio and Stanley is straight out of a late 30's early 40s very high end women's clothing store, where women with real money (if you have to ask how much, you can't afford it money) come, sit, have tea and order their clothes from Mr. Fabio and Mr. Stanley.  The Mr.'s will come out, impeccably dressed (I'd like to see a tux on each of them, especially Fabio) and consult with their clients as to what will make each woman look best.

And both those men would be totally believable in their suggestions and their clients would be delighted.

Not only could Josh not walk in those shoes, he couldn't even stand correctly in them. He looked like he was going to tip over. If he set out to make himself look ridiculous then he did a bang-up job. 

Now if only Helen would get eliminated so I don't have to look at her ugly tattoos I'd be a happy camper. Speaking of Helen, I was surprised when she said she was making a fit and flare dress. To me fit and flare means fit at the top and flared at the waist. Wasn't her dress a mermaid style? Maybe she changed her design or maybe I don't know one dress from another which very well could be.

Very ironic that Helen told the camera that she considered taking shortcuts but just couldn't as she always made sure her garments were perfect.  Then the big reveal with puckered seams all over the dress.  I thought the second shade of red she placed in the middle of the front made it look like some type of accident happened to the model-whether someone spilled something down the middle of her gown, or something more personal.  I think that Helen, like others, over rates her own talent.  However, in someone's previous post they stated that she worked for Zac Posen after her season, so all I know is that I don't really know anything at all about how to interpret design talent.

I thought she looked terrible. Fabio's dress (which I liked, though I thought the color was a little drab) would have been an improvement over what she wore.

Speaking of looking terrible, whoever picked out Alyssa's outfit needs to be shot. Her head looked great (TM Fug Girls) but every line on that outfit hit in exactly the wrong place on her and the super-wide-legged cropped pants were a terrible choice for someone short and curvy.

Bye Joshua! Good riddance. I've said it every time he has been on this show: he just has bad taste. And he looked a fool in those boots - he was clearly uncomfortable in them. He was walking bent-kneed.

I'm happy to see Anthony win because I just think he's such a delight. And I liked his dress; it WOULD be good on someone with breasts (like me!) and the structure and back detailing gave it a dose of glam.

I just have to think the way Alyssa dresses has to be deliberate.  She is always wearing clothing that is the exact opposite of flattering.She and everyone involved in the show can obviously see that.  She dresses cutely when not on the show. So it is a conscious decision on someone's part. But whyyyyy? Perhaps it's avant garde! Perhaps that's the real meaning of avant garde!

Fabio's dress looked a little like a washed out denim muumuu. Not a fan.

There's still a few people who are dead weight. I kind of want to fast forward through their eliminations to the final collections. Not sorry to see Joshua go but I would have liked to see his rock star outfit. Edmond should have been eliminated. That dress was an affront to flowers.

Speaking of next weeks challenge, I'm so glad it's something different. I'm so tired of all these red carpet challenges. Every week it's a gown. Gowns are fine but after prom and wedding, almost no one ever wears one again. I like sportswear challenges or the weird ones like the time they re-imagined the USPS uniform, which was mostly a disaster but at least it was different.

My God, did you see how Helen was egging stupid Josh on by saying that Stanley's gentleman like the comment about being in good company at the top was insulting?  I think Helen is a person that gets away with a lot in real life because everyone thinks she is so cute, in a dirty never takes a shower type of way.  Helen is probably jealous as hell of Stanley, because he conducts himself with quiet dignity and is very talented.

Alyssa really doubled down on her signature style for the runway: UNFLATTERING. That outfit had all the elements to make her look shorter and wider than she actually is.

As a short woman I will say that getting good fitting petite clothes is a challenge. Not impossible but you have to know what looks good on your body image. I think what goes wrong is that the most stylish outfits are made for a taller lithe person and that never translates well to a smaller person. We smaller people want to look chic too and sometimes people give up and choose style rather than what fits their body type. I’ve always wanted them to do a runway for petite ladies. Even a challenge where the models are 5’ 2” and under. I think Alyssa chooses style or fashion rather than dressing for her size. Wrong choice.

I love Allyssa Milano, but I agree with everyone else that she is being done no favors by the stylists who are working with her. She has a beautiful face and can carry off that short hair but I wish she'd try something a little longer.  I'm no expert on what looks good but this is a show about designers, why don't they have a challenge to design for Allyssa?  She's not a model but she isn't fat or out of shape. Surely, they could make some flattering outfits for her.

I am a short woman myself and would like to give my two cents.  I was watching this with a cousin who does not watch Project Runway.  During the commercials, Lifetime promotes this series called "Little Women of something something", which I guess is like Real Housewives, but centered around little people.  My cousin actually asked if Alyssa was from one of those "LIttle People Shows" when Alyssa came out in the culottes.  My cousin is also pretty young and has no idea who Alyssa Milano is in the first place.

I think the issue is not height but weight.  The fashion industry has no idea how to handle curvier women and if you cut off a curvy petite gal at the wrong angle, she is going to look stubby as hell. If Alyssa was still a size 0-2, she would not be having issues.

I agree with both observations upthread that the center, slightly darker, probably lighter weight panel of Helen's dress pulled into creases that make it look like it was not sewn properly, and that the fact is was slightly darker than the rest made it look like she spilled water all the way down her front.  I don't know that I'd have sent it home over Josh's, but certainly to me it was worse than either of the other two bottom placers, though I did see the judges' points on those.

When I was a little kid and drawing I remember using an upside-down triangle for the top of women's dresses all the time.  All my drawings looked like Stanley's dress.  I don't get the love for it at all because I thought aside from the color, it looked horrible.  I thought Edmond's flower was hideous.  Did Anthony put a slit in the bottom back of his gown?  The model looked like she was having trouble walking because it was so slim. I can't say there was one dress in the bunch that I really liked.  Did not like Helen's at all.  It ruched badly and there was something about the colors that was off-putting.  Fabio's was just too much fabric and reminded me of something someone would wear around the house to be comfortable or hide some unwanted pounds.  Particularly the back.  Joshua's might have looked a lot better in a different color and if he had additional time to work out where he was going with the top.  As it was there was too much going on and unfinished at the same time.  

Oh, Josh! I could be wrong but I get the feeling he's really not thick-skinned at all.  He strikes me as someone who puts on the sassy and bitchy as a defense.  Nothing jives with him, hair, clothes, make-up.  It's like he has his own personal button bag of concepts that he pulls from randomly.  I have no idea what he was going for with those damn shoes! I don't care who you are.  If you can't walk properly in heels, change to a different style footwear.
