You guys, I know Project Runway has trrrtlly jumped the sharq, but I was just reminded that the premiere is
tonight next Wednesday. I’ve already made my predictions for final three, which necessarily precludes my initial favorites. Granted, I’ve only been reading the designer/contestant bios (which are really embarrassing, I must say: The designer/contestant bios are really embarrassing. Sorry; had to.
I was leaning toward:
MARION LEE. Seriously? Serious-Lee?!? That’s his name. So privileged old Texas. I should know, being neither privileged, nor old, but certainly from Texas. His hometown, Tyler, is the “Rose Capital of America.” If. You. Know. What. I. Mean.
RAMI KASHOV. When I Gúgl his name, I’m asked “Did you mean: RAMI KASHOU. No, I think Google and I both know that I meant אהיה אשר אהיה. Though now that I’m looking at a few of his pieces from past craft projects… I mean “collections,” I might have meant תֹּועֵבָה.
Those two have the most progressive tastes as far as favorite fashion designers, but of course that can only mean one thing—that they are going to be punished for being Conceptual and Difficult and not Designing for Real Women. Right, I’d love to see all those fake women running around wearing Totally Impossible clothing by Hussein Chalayan and Viktor & Rolf and Olivier Theyskens and their ilk. Because designing clothing for fake women is incredibly lucrative.
WHEN YOU ARE A FASHION DESIGNER (or trying to become one on this horrible, horrible show), YOUR INSPIRATION CAN ONLY BE “Old Hollywood Glamour” and “Ladies Who Lunch” and “Jet-Setting Heiresses.”
I should really come up with a drinking game based on those phrases. Or like, anytime someone says “simple,” “sexy,” “modern,” or “charmeuse” (which they always pronounce in the most annoying manner—[ʃaɹ ‘mus] instead of [ʃaɹ ‘møz]; and yes, I know both are correct in General American English), then everyone takes a sip of his or her Remy Ma. Blah blah blah.
Can you guys help me come up with more Project Runway drinking game phrases?
