Who is watching Project Runway? I am. It is the first time I've wanted to kick someone down the stairs. Her name is Kenley. Her dresses are really nice, if similar, and extremely well made. She would be a fantastic costumer for movies about the 1950s-60s.

Better yet, she should drop design and look into becoming a professional asshole. Because she's got that shit dowwwwn. She has no self perception, other than she is always right. She is without flaw, so she doesn't accept critique. She's mean to Tim Gunn. She is mean to the twee-est, sugar-coated peanut to ever mentor a bunch of scrubby creative types.


But it isn't just that she's stubborn, self-absorbed, and delusional. She's also a classic Mean Girl. She has something nasty to say about everyone (as long as it is behind their backs). She can't help herself from giggling at other's misfortunes, even when it is not only mean, but quite simply inappropriate. And she's snotty. Green clotty snotty.

So, cute dresses, nothing wrong there, but still. You, me, a set of stairs, and the hefty pat on the back you so richly deserve, baby. Unless your fellow designers get there first.

I have to disagree: her dresses are boring and often ugly.

Case in point: this Golden Girls-meets-Dynasty travesty of a thigh goiter:

She is a dreadful boring designer. Who manages both to up-talk and to sound like she's speaking through a mouthful of peanut butter.

Professional asshole, indeed.

Oh Jesus, I forgot about that one. Monstrous!

Also, the avant garde piece was a joke. There's a definite lack of perspective on her part. Oh, and no sense of history -- that was SO "done before."

I like her "normal" dresses...they cute if not extraordinary. She obviously considers herself the new pattern queen, but when she misses, she really misses.
