Spoiler Alert: a Project Runway Rant

What the eff, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia? Have you spent too long in the tanning bed? What is wrong with you? Everyone knows Mondo should have won. I never thought I’d so wholeheartedly be on the side of Jessica Simpson.
What planet were they on? To watch them praise Mondo’s unique voice and endless creativity at every turn, only to decide at the very moment when it counts that they actually didn’t mean all those nice encouraging things they were saying about his style the whole time, and oh yeah, we’re going to go with this crappier collection for no apparent reason. They picked a collection that was clearly inferior, made by a bitchy and desperate human being. Not only was Mondo’s collection superior, but you’d think even from a soulless TV show standpoint, they would choose the person who touched the lives of many people by admitting he was HIV positive. It was fucking brave. It was good television because it was real.
Gretchen Jones is “current”? Well, Mondo Guerra is forward-thinking. I thought the point of shows like this are to find new, interesting voices in the industry instead of those reflecting what others are already doing. I’m not saying Ms. Jones isn’t talented. I really do like her clothes. But to hold her on-and-off performance up in comparison to a great creative mind like Mondo’s and have her come out the winner is some strange world indeed. Maybe Mr. Kors and Ms. Garcia are spending a little too much time on yachts to be in tune with what the people want. Believe us, we’re Donnybrook – we would know about these things. Kick their stupid overly-tanned smug faces off the show! BOOOOOO!
