Season 5/Episode 2 IT AIN'T EASY BEING GREEN

The challenge: use environmentally responsible textiles to create cocktail dresses for clients who are…the models. The bummer: The models, armed with $75, shop for fabric and trim and have absolutely no idea what the heck they’re doing.

A bunch bought this vile, glossy brown organic satin, which was the undoing of one contestant. Poor, sweet Wesley got the boot for his overwrought, ill fitting number that Michael Kors said looked like 27 hands had been all over it. Leanne’s loopy, too-many-tricks mini was second to worst. So sad… speaking of which…the water works were on tonight with Korto’s near breakdown when her darty dress was criticized, to Leanne’s girlish sobs, when her model didn’t back her up, saying that the dress she created was not really what she wanted.

Onward to happier fashions and moments: Kenley’s lean, ladylike cocktail number in champagne was elegant, but Suede’s girlish tulle skirted frock of ivory satin and red strips won. Guest judge Natalie Portman, who is an environmental activist and a designer for vegan shoe line Te Casan (pricey but very stylish) as well as a fashionista (and did we mention, a Long Island girl), loved, loved Suede’s confection. Beneath the blue Mohawk and the overuse of the third person, “Suede is a bisexual Sagittarius…. Suede rocks…” well, we sorta’ like him, and thought the dress was really cute.

Stella redeemed herself tonight imbuing her rocker chic attitude into an asymmetrical shoulder silky mini. Her model loved it. But, um, Long Islanders, was it us? Or were the contestants making fun of our famous accents? We forgive, because Stella of Astoria speaking the Queen’s English is sort of hard on the ear as in “letha” this, “letha” that (yes, that would be leather). But Blayne really went to town…you don’t hear us speaking Leprechaun, do you Blayne? Stella was a good sport about the ribbing.

Truth told, we’re kind of liking Blayne too – what a character – but we must question his judgment. Is it wise to call Heidi Darth Vader? As he put it “all shiny on the outside, but Darthlicious inside.” Hats off to him, Terri, Daniel, Joe and Emily for the good work, while we’re thinking Jennifer did shmata and Jerrell did hoochie mama.

I am at work and had to cover my mouth so people wouldn't hear me laughing so hard at this post I came across:

What a GREAT idea for an episode!

Loved this challenge because it really tested the ingenuity and creativity of the designers. Suede's dress was quite a surprise! I have to admit when I saw it in progress, I thought for sure he would be the one kicked out this week...and he won!! Shows you what I know about fashion... And, what was up with that ugly brown satin...three of them, no less.

My name is Nevin Barich. I apologize for writing this on your comment page, but I couldn't find a place to e-mail you. Please feel free to delete after you read this.

I will tell you right now: I hate Project Runway. I find it boring, moronic, and all the characters to me are exactly the same. Prior to this season, I watched approximately 13 minutes of this show (my girlfriend made me) and hated every second of it.

But this hatred of PR gave me an idea. So many people do blogs of shows they like, but how many do a show about a blog they hate? Now that's a different perspective!! With that in mind, I launched

This blog keeps a running diary of each episode and offers the point of view of someone who can't for the life of them understand why plastic cup dresses, jersey fabric and clothing made of garbage bags is interesting. I was hoping that you might check out this blog and -- should they find it entertaining enough -- mention it on a future blog entry.

Please note that my blog is not a spam site. Your readers will not click on it and be led to a porn site. Also, regardless of how much I may hate this show, I am committed to doing this for the entire season and post my blog entries no later than 60-90 minutes following the conclusion of the episode (I am on the West Coast). I also have a proven track record of updating my blogs on a regular basis (see my main blog at so you would not be featuring a blog that goes by the wayside after two weeks.

Thank you for considering this blog as a possible entry on yours.
