S19.E11: Haute Hair

Recommended Posts


You'll see dozens of women with their breast pushed up and out in corsets like Precious at every Renaissance Faire.

Thought they would keep Aaron because they liked the raincoat, but Coral had nothing but criticism. Or they didn't air anything complimentary to keep us guessing.

I bet she'll make some good tips serving cocktails in Vegas though. (I assume she was headed to her shift after the show taped.)

 

I was thinking RuPaul's Drag Race, where she could have got some useful tips on being classy.

Just gonna say I did not like any of the total looks. Some I liked bits and pieces of, mostly disappointed. 

And I dont care what sex, color, age the designer or drama. I think the judges need to be more impartial. Entire season has sucked.

I think this hair stylist designed my childhood Thanksgiving turkeys…66B56F49-CB8D-4632-8001-758EC787EF2E.jpeg.9b178f8ddfbf6c53027ac646b18c52cc.jpeg  1FC37AA2-49E6-4CD0-9C5F-7A0003181458.jpeg.d07e0ed5a4949b00acaa8bda686eb923.jpeg

Aaron’s outfit reminded me of a crime scene that has been hastily covered up, recovered, and covered some more, until all you see is a pile of twigs and branches and crumpled newspaper that just call attention to the original crime. Dude, all you had to do was make a simple monochrome  dress/jumper to go underneath your nifty raincoat. What was with all the crisscross details and superhero striping? That was pure panic mode.

Elaine does not get to criticize anyone’s hair/ outfit combo when hers looks like that. (Sorry, Christian. Swing and a miss.)

Kristina is annoyed that Shantall wants to win? A competition show? The nerve.

I don’t know why I was able to quickly forgive Bones for his early bad behavior, but couldn’t give Aaron a similar pass. I think he’s talented, I don’t think he should have gone tonight (why are the judges not sick of all the macrame??), but I somehow can’t work up any sorrow for his ouster. Vaya con Dios, Aaron. Hope you gained a little personal insight.

I 'think' - I'm not positive - that Christian had a dress like that in his recent collection.  I suspect that it might have been shown with a smaller-chested woman.  But the way it fit that judge, it looked like part of "The Bordello Collection."  Tres Trampy.  😜

It almost had to have been shown "with a smaller-chested woman," no? Heh.

Aaron's trajectory was headed this way beginning with his contre-temps with Bones. IOW, Aaron got the "Yes, he's up there, but he's not really a nice guy, so it'll be okay when we Auf him" edit. 

Chasity, OTOH, has been getting the "You GO, girl!" edit, with tonight's victory her penultimate win (during which judging the hair, not the garment, was her focus). Chasity's final win will, of course, be for the entire competition.

Bones will not win. This was foreshadowed in Episode One. He might finish second (which does not entail any "You're out"). 

Shantall tonight chose leather over Christian's warning, and had the garment tear. I.e., she got the "Makes Poor Choices/Ignores Good Advice" edit. Won't win. 

The others will leave in the coming weeks. 

No spoilers; just calling as I see them.

Chantal had two zippers in her pants, I think..a fly front in the front, and an invisible in the back.  I think the invisible was only there to make the rip into a seam.  She probably placed the back on a thin place in the leather hence the rip.

Precious telling Kristina that she needed to tighten the strap on the bra top to hoist up the model’s breasts was dumb.  If you tightened that thin strap it would probably have broken right when she walked the runway.  And what kind of model (with ANY size breasts) doesn’t bring a bra to a fitting?  She had some sort of crop exercise top on.

Seriously.  And Chantall hasn't been nasty to anyone this season that I can remember.  Eyes on the prize is the way a competitor SHOULD be.  Maybe Kristina is a 180 from the tried and true "I'm not here to make friends" mantra of every competition show in the history of TV.

Traumatized by Precious's breasts, didn't love any of the looks (though I thought Chantall and Bones had the best) and am so over Elaine.  She reminds me of the teacher who tries to be like one of the kids, but also loves to lecture on how she's right about everything.

That is exactly her vibe!

And whose Christmas tree did she mug for her hair ornament???

Aaron's "jumpsuit" was really sad. I actually liked his raincoat, but that tragic undergarment was so much worse than Coral's (which I didn't really hate -- I actually kinda liked that it was a bit quirky and had different fabrics).

I enjoyed the Russian spy Patty more than I should have.

The hair on the model for Bones had a messy bun. That's it. A bun. There was nothing interesting or clever about that hair. 

I haven't loved this season as much as others. I think I like Chantal the best of the remaining designers. I didn't find anyone I really liked this year. Zayden seemed like a lovely person, but his designs were so-so. I feel like for a lot of these designers when they are on, their designs are fantastic, but when they are off they are horrible. Lots of one-way monkeys. They are so married to their aesthetic they aren't adaptable and that's what is needed in this competition.

I'm not going to say PR has completely lost it and is horrible, I feel like this season is a dud. I don't dislike Elaine as much as many posters and I really like Christian as a mentor. Not ready to jump ship yet. I wonder if the pandemic had any impact on the competitors we're seeing this season.

Mileage varies! Kristina's was the only one up there I'd consider wearing. It was in my top 2. Didn't love it but a weak showing overall so it's up there for me.

And 100% think the right person went home -- Aaron's coat couldn't save that jumpsuit. It was bad on an epic scale, in concept, vibe, and execution. Coral didn't do a good job but she didn't make a massive flub like that.

I heard a compliment about her jacket being very good (I think from Nina), and the way she said it gave me the impression she would no go home because of it. And Precious said she liked all the pieces separately.

Shantall's look was great and very 90s throwback that's currently trendy. I think the coat should have been cropped though. I don't really understand what happened with her leather. She said it was rotten? Mood sells rotten leather?

Not rotten...I suspect that was a language issue. Leather can have weak spots. It's one of the things that makes it difficult and expensive to work with, you need loads of it to cut around problem areas or you have to pay for very high quality stuff. I really liked hers.  My other top 2 pick.

I hated those material swirls Bone put on the front of the top.  Definitely will not work if you have boobs. 

I really hated that one! Boobs or no, it looked cheap and poorly made. And I disliked Chasity's too. They'd have been my middle two.

I still can't believe they never call her out on her macrame obsession.  They constantly reamed Rami in Season 4 because he loved to drape.  

Remember, she had a design or two without macrame early on until Christian came over and whined that her pieces were missing her signature macrame. It's the same "damned if you do..." dance we've seen time and time again in PR.

Ugh...I'm sorry but how can Cristina be in the top 2?? I'm sure I'm in the minority but I didn't think it served justice to a larger frame..WAY too much fabric. Guess that's why I'm not a designer..lol

No, it's not just you. That outfit was atrocious and it made her plus size model look twice as big. She's really gone downhill but it doesn't seem to matter to the judges. Which brings me to the judges themselves ..they all suck, including Nina. They have no edge or PoV anymore, just sniping and butchery to keep their pets in the competition. This show us a far, far cry from the Heidi/Tim days of "make it work!'

I just got to finish watching because ITunes didn't send my episode until today.  I think Aaron made the classiest exit I've ever seen from this show.  He messed up, and he owned up to it.  

Some of those hairdos - beautiful as they were - I just don't know how they don't hurt.  They look heavy, and tight.  When my hair gets down to shoulder length I really start to feel it.

Precious and Elaine were both wearing designs by Christian tonight. I think Precious looked like she was about to pop out at any moment. 

Elaine’s top kept going wonky, and Precious’s made her boobs look like balloons about to bust. It made mine hurt to look at her. Which I didn’t much because I was afraid I’d spy a nipple.

Was she wearing a wig? Because, irony.

This season is probably my least favorite of all the Bravo seasons. Too much drama (in the first few episodes, anyway) and too little talent. 

I'm sorry to see Aaron go because I thought he would have created an interesting collection. I knew he'd be in the bottom, and I figured Coral would be too. But my third would have been Chasity. Yes, her dress was a good fit for the hair, but I really didn't like the dress. Maybe it was the sequins around the slashes, which really cheapened the look. I also thought there was too much going on. (Is that a Heidi-ism?) 

I thought Kristina's was interesting, but it was middle at best.

Shantell's was probably my favorite. 

What was the little tiff between Shantell and Kristina at the notions' counter? I think I missed something. 

Kristina apparently was shocked to realize that Shantall is there to try to win, and so she wouldn’t let Kristina cut back in line at Mood and jeopardize her own chances at getting her purchase under the deadline. kristina referred back to Shantall saying so in the green room, and actually they all seemed pretty stunned about it. Surprise! It’s a compettion!

This 100%. The crying and whining really bothers me. These are supposed to be professionals. It's not high school. Stop the crying and excuses and act like an adult. Similarly, I don't like hearing excuses about "back stories."  Who cares what happened when you were a child etc. A good sob story does not excuse a bad idea or poor execution. Just make a good product. That's all anyone wants. I know this sounds mean, but many of these contestants need to grow up.   I'm thinking especially about the designer who walked out on her housewife client last episode (forgot her name).  That was totally unprofessional. In the real world she would have been fired, not coddled.

- Seriously over the designers basically trying to out-dress their own models during the runway. They should punish all future seasons by requiring them to wear uniforms to the runway because of the antics of this bunch. I do not need to see Bones channeling the Statue of Liberty. 
 

- The beautiful, majestic hair on her model elevated and saved Chasity’s look, IMO. In isolation the dress reminded me of something Halle Berry would have worn as “Sharon Stone” in the Flintstones movie from the ‘90s. I’ve gotten Flintstones vibes from several runway looks this season 🤔 

- Nina telling it to Bones straight after Elaine’s gushing was a refreshing taste of Old Nina 

- I am a gay man and honestly don’t think Aaron meant the pearl necklace thing as a dirty joke. He’s already kind of an Old Queen at heart. Like an aunt. (A single one) He seems one to spend more time clutching his pearls rather than the more lewd interpretations. Sad to see him go but it was like he was possessed by the spirit of Katie for this one 🎈🤡

I cannot begin to imagine how much pain Precious had to have been in by the end of taping the show.  Her boobs seemed jammed together with a vice and then pushed up into her throat. Simply awful.

Because of his age,  I really thought he was referring to the old ZZ Top song, from the early 80s, and it's sexual. Not gay, just sexual. He definitely knows the reference. Here are the lyrics:

And I was gettin' blown away
And she held it in her hand

As a straight old lady (80+) I thought Aaron definitely meant "pearl necklace" in the sexual way. Does it have to be a DIRTY joke?  Can't it simply be funny, fun (and an inside joke to way too many)?

I thought it was DUMB from the beginning and was surprised (WHY am I EVER surprised on this series) there were any compliments.  ALSO, the model's original hairstyle was not conducive to this challenge.  If they wanted a short "Marcel" look, there are better models available.

Messy bun...AND she bopped the top of it when she came on the runway-it fell down a bit.  DON'T TOUCH THE HAIR!

I'd wager there were a few nip-slips...but the editors on these shows have MORE than their share of professional work to do.

Yeah, I didn’t get the natural hair comment.  The models all had extensions and plenty of fake hair.

I was super annoyed by that. Not only were the straps not strong enough for the job, Precious kept saying to tack them. Tacking is basting; you don't use it for heavy duty.

This is an example of why I don't think we need models as judges (or hosts). Experience in one part of your industry doesn't mean you have expertise in the whole industry. Having models judge Project Runway is like having Joey Chestnut judge Top Chef.

I'm watching the judging right now.  I was sure the plus-size model, Dariana, was going to send another designer home, but no, they loved that mess of fabric.  "Oh, I always think stripes and finger curls just naturally GO TOGETHER."  Say what now?  Hmm.  It occurs to me, cynical me, that Project Runway couldn't allow their BBB model to be the kiss of death yet again.

 

I thought Bones' snaky/nude red satin number was gorgeous.  I may have emitted a tiny gasp.

 

What's wrong with that hairstylist who offered a skimpy little pony with a couple of deflated puffs for the inspiration and then came back for the show with a whole head full of shiny blonde balls bobbling every which way between intricate black ribbonwork?

 

Back to the show. . .

He's still a Millennial.  He's born in 1982.  Usually people born in the 80s grew up on 90s music.  Personally I have never heard of that song.
