So...Project Runway is all over. Seth Aaron won. I'm happy that he did. He has a wife and a couple of kids and they seemed pretty united in his journey. That's a nice thing to witness. I loved it that he could design for children, as well as adult women.
Emilio Sosa's collection was fabulous as well. I loved his use of color-it rocked. But that ego of his...yeesh. And, the worse, most offensive behavior of all-he was rude to Tim Gunn. For real...how could ANYONE be rude to Tim Gunn?
Mila's collection was all black and white and retro. Same thing the entire season. Sure, she "roughed up" the hair and make-up to make it look grittier, but there were no surprises.
I'm not a judge, by any stretch. You're reading the blog of a woman who staples her hems. I just love a fabulous creative challenge. I love the process they go through, how they "suffer" for their craft, how they deal with each other, the whole schmear.
On another entirely unrelated note, the hubs and I took another one of his "road trips" today. We drove out on the country roads and went through Pala (where all the pretty nurseries are) and drove through Anza-Borrego, then up the mountain to Julian, then back through the hills to home. It was beautiful and green and hilly and wild-flowery. But it lasted sooooooo long. This guy drives all day-how he gets relaxed by driving more on his day off is beyond me. One of the benefits, however, of being in the car together for four hours, is that he gets me to talk. I don't talk that much when we're together. Yes. I know that sounds odd, but I just don't. I don't like to sound blabby-and I have real blabby potential.
Anyway, for some reason, the notion of aesthetics came up and I confided that the female form is far more pleasing than the male form. I explained that the female brain is kind of "wired" to find beauty in curves. Think of babies cheeks and their curves. Think of the attraction of the VW Bug. And then I confided that I never really found the male form particularly attractive. Not that I found the female form attractive, I'm just not a physical kind of person. I guess I like wit and intellect-and more wit. We agreed that many women are probably more like me than would care to admit...of COURSE we would think that!!!
And then we solved all of the world's problems.
