Runway Trash to the Curb

maland.jpgMalan’s auffing this week just broke my heart on Project Runway this week.  Yeah, he designed a dress that really didn’t work.  Even Miss USA can’t pull off a ruched bodice.  Nicole Richie can’t pull off a ruched bodice. Someone with a sucking chest wound can’t pull of amalandress.jpg ruched bodice.  What the hell was he thinking?  Were the instructions unclear? Nope.  Miss USA specifically told him she wanted to minimize  her bustline. Ruched?  Setting a neon sign on her shoulder pointing to her chest with the flashing word BOOBIES would have been less obvious.  What really makes me mad, though, is I have been robbed of some of the best potential entertainment this season was going to offer — from his accent to his post-Grandpa Munster look — he was a giggling treasure trove of Malan’isms. Instead he gets sent home, sad eyed and lonely (if you saw his goodbye message, it would make you weep), and we now have to put up with the whining horror show named Angela. Gak, she should have gone home.

Malan should have known, when TimGunn 2.0 uttered “It’s looking kind of heavy, like a big log” that he was on the wroooong track.

winning dress.jpgBest exchange of the night, from the winners,  Kayne and Robert. Kayne:  “We bought 4 million gross of rhinestones. We will put them on until our fingernails bleed.” Robert: “She’s a beauty queen, not a disco ball.”  Love ya, mean it!

The winning dress was stunning.  This picture doesn’t do it justice. Go to the Project Runway website and see for yourself in more clear pictures. Better yet, WATCH THE SERIES!!!  Criminy, this is television at its most entertaining and every girl worthy of the name should be watching it.  The fashion, the cat fights, the blaming, the tears.

Leaving for vacation tomorrow for a week, and I am now contemplating the fragrances I should take. It is a week on the beach in North Carolina.  Right now I am contemplating taking Bond Fire Island, Osmanthe Yunnan, PG Jardins de Kerylos, Eva and Yuzu Rouge.

Anything else y’all think I should be taking?  You’ve got the rest of the day to convince me to take something else!

    Buon luogo, congratulazioni, il mio amico!

  • Patty,

    In case you’d be interested to sniff another Thierry Mugler I think I sent you a sample of Innocent Summer Flash in the last package.

  • March says:

    Hey, P — what about the Rosines? Ecume? You still seem a little underdressed to me. What about an OJ? I guess the Bulgari will cover the tea, otherwise you need to bring some L’Artisan The Pour Un Ete…

  • patchamour says:

    Hey Patty,

    I like Eva’s idea about choices. You might like that patchouli-incense thing going on at night. I remember enjoying wearing Michael Kors’ Michael in some kind of body cream at the beach. Wouldn’t it be great if someone could bottle that fantastic salt sea air?

  • Justine says:

    I LOVE the Azuree with Fire Island. The two work really, really well together. You need something for the night…something soft, close to the skin…but honestly, I don’t know what. Clearly, I need to have my coffee this morning.

  • BBliss says:

    Ooh – I DVR’d this and have been saving it up for a quiet night without kid interruptions(hah!) – now it makes me want to pitch over work today and go home! You’re absolutely right – it is TV for people who hate TV – I am totally fascinated with and addicted to this series.

    Hope your vacation is awesome all around – what about an Hermes beach scent – Un Jardin en Mediterranee or Eau de Merveilles? Both are actually great in heat! Have a blast!!!:)

  • violetnoir says:

    Yeah, Patty, where is the Songes??? I’m waiting for an explanation, young lady. :-w

    But seriously, we were just in Palm Springs (talk about HOT!!), and wore A la Nuit, too. I think that’s a good tropical fragrance. Otherwise, I think you’re packing the right stuff. b-) Have a wonderful vacation.

    As for Project Runway, I watched the last four episodes from season two and thought it was great. I’ll probably watch the whole thing at once when they repeat the episodes in a marathon at the end of the season.

    Hugs and be safe!

  • Patty says:

    Leopoldo, I think you’re absolutely right on the Sel. I was toying with taking that one,and the more I think about it, the more it seems like perfection on the beach.

  • Patty says:

    Ina, try and arrange to be in the gyn when PR is on all the time. 🙂 You will love it, it’s television for people who hate television.

    Heavy scent at the beach? Oh, no, no, no, no. You are so brave and strong and I’m a coward.

  • Patty says:

    Marina, I know, I really did just cry.

    Though the others are starting to step up. I have Angela to hate for a while, and Kayne and Robert and the guy that was Angela’s partner (can’t remember his name) and neck tattoo guy I think will all be pretty interesting. It’s shaping up to be a great season.

  • Leopoldo says:

    You have to take Sel de Vetiver which to me shouts beach holiday in a nice, but nonetheless shouty way.

  • Patty says:

    Judith, definitely take the Aomassai to Maine. Haven’t smelled the Le Labo Patchouli. I’ve gotten to just making up a ton of decants and wrapping them up, and now I don’t feel so guilty needing ten different scents on the road. I’m feeling a little short right now with what I’ve picked, so I’m tucking in Bvlgari Au the Blanc in too.

    PR repeats about 100 times a week, you can’t miss it!

  • Patty says:

    March, Eva is in any summer suitcase I pack, to be sure! Got the sunscreen (need another bottle today), booze is already there, I am so ready to go!!

  • Patty says:

    H — I was thinking Songes or OJ Frangipani for a dressier scent and settled on L’Artisan Fleur D’Oranger instead and FM Lys Mediterranee too.

  • Patty says:

    Sariah, i love Azuree, and I will be taking it with me, but I just don’t think of it as a fragrance. I think of it as an oil I spritz on my legs. 🙂 Though I love the fragrance of it. I know, pretty weird, but I never know when my kinks will show up. 🙂

  • Patty says:

    You know, I was so offput by Angel, I don’t think I’ve smelled any other Thierry Mugler, but I must rectify that with the Cologne and also Angel for men that Sariah says is good for even Angel haters.

  • Ina says:

    Patty, I couldn’t agree more! I don’t usually watch TV but I happened to be in the gym right when PR was on, so I got totally carried away. Malan’s dress was truly hideous but Angela got on my nerves WAY more. Actually, Vincent did, too. I personally think they both failed at teamwork, not just her.

    As for fragrances, why not take something totally out of line for a vacation? Some killer stinker like Kolnisch Juchten? :d

  • Marina says:

    You know my heart was broken too. Poor little Malan. Hate Angela. LOVE the wining dress.

    Have a great vacation!!!

    PS. Judith, they repeat the show every day, it seems.

  • Judith says:

    Ok, I am going for a 3-day weekend in Maine. So far, I am thinking of–MeB 3, Sel de Vetiver, Songes, Carnal Flower, Passage d’Enfer, Angelique Encens. A girl’s gotta have choices, ya know. And there are evenings and there are mornings. . .Maybe le Labo Patchouli and/or Aomassai. Or is that too much?:)

    Sad because I missed Project Runway. Wondering if it’s repeated. . .

  • March says:

    You FREAKED me out woman, I was all set to type, “Where is the EVA?!?!?” That’s like forgetting to bring your heart medication or something.

    Bring some sunscreen. And plenty of booze.

    You cracked me up with the BOOBIES thing. So, so true.

  • A creamy tropical scent like Songes?

  • sariah says:

    The EL Azuree body oil would be great for a beach vacation. A fun and pretty suntan oil scent, I think you already have it? How do you like the fact that it’s an oil vs say an EDT?

  • dinazad says:

    Vacation without Thierry Mugler Cologne? Unheard of! It survives hours in hot, stuffy cars, doesn’t annoy fragrance-sensitive relatives and has you smelling freshly showered in the most gruelling of situations! Plus it’s awfully well-mannered and patiently lets any other fragrance you might want to sprit on for the evening dominate. I’d definitely take that along!
