IDK...my BFF, SJP?


I would just like to say that if you did not gasp, cry, and/or applaud when Sarah Jessica Parker walked into the deisgn studio, this blog is not for you.  My own personal reaction was an OMG audible to the neighbs, followed by several utterances of GET OUT, and my face looked about like our friend Jack here.  I mean...Best.  Guest Judge.  Ever.  But at the same time, it was sort of weird seeing Carrie Bradshaw off the set of Sex and the City.  It felt kind of like seeing your teacher outside of school...they're not supposed to exist outside the classroom! And Carrie's not supposed to exist outside of my dvd collection.  It was weird.  

Carrying on - In case you missed it, the challenge was to get in teams of 2 and design an outfit for SJP's Bitten clothing line with a budget of (gasp!) fifteen smackeroos. With all that in mind it's no surprise this episode unfolded into something resembling a Forever 21 challenge.  Every outfit looked like something I would buy for super cheap at XXI, wear once, then never really bust out again.  The colors, the cuts....it was all just so the-mall-at-Pentagon-City.

But while the guest judge totally shocked me, the judging itself was pretty predictable.  I mean...the outfit Carmen helped with turned out to be retro?!  NO WAY.  Victorya designed something pleasing to the lead character of Sex and the City?!  GET OUT.   Elisa acted like she was from another planet?  STFU!   People are really falling into their roles now.  And speaking of roles, I have developed a theory that Christian is not a real person - he is just Chris Kattan posing as a flamboyant fashion designer to pull a prank on Bravo.
It's totally possible, think about it - CHRIStian! And NBC and Bravo are partners, plus COME ON they look like they were separated at birth.  All he had to do was change the hair on his Corky Romano character, and voila - c'est Christian!  Well, you're not fooling me, Mr. Peepers.  We'll just see how long you can keep this up... 

But they're all still in, so let's talk about who's out.  Ooooh, Marion.  Your designs were nowhere near as delish as your pizza.  MK compared this week's loozer to Cousin It, Heidi went with Pocahantas, but personally, I felt that this fugness was more akin to an extra from Braveheart.  And although that is one of my favorite movies eva, I was not a fan of this design. Marion, let's talk. You knew you were getting eliminated, and I have no idea why last week's disaster didn't get you auf'd.  But how DARE you parade that shiz in front of my idols Carrie Bradshaw and NEENAGAHCEEAH?  It's just disrespectful, and you deserved to go last week anyway, so Marion, pal...au revoir from me to you.



And P.S. your model sucks.

As soon as I started reading this post I knew it was written by Hélène du Blonde.

Oh my gawd, Christian ... Chris Kattan. You're so right! You know, he irritated me a bit, kind of like nails on a chalkboard, but now that I realize it's just Chris Kattan, it's all better.

Mon Dieu, Helen you are an hilarious wit. I also screamed out loud when Miss Parker appeared. And my face was red as a beet! My own reaction was distracting, I couldn't believe myself. Wonderful blog, darling!!

Christian Spotted in DC!!
Oui, it's true. I spotted the Kattanesque PR designer the Friday after the big Turkey at Town, the new Nation replacement at 8th and U, NW. Christian looked like he just stepped off the set, complete with sparkling square rimmed glasses and that charming alternating camellick hair. He's quite short and nimble, allowing him to dart quickly through the crowd before I could whip out my camera or catch him and shake him down for all his pixie dust.
