Manolo says, Nicky Hilton?
This is the person who the contestants of the Project Runway must impress with their designs?
This it is not the honor, it is the moral quandary.
On the one of the hands, you must attempt to produce the best design possible so as to win the respect of the Nina and the Michael Kors, yet on the other of the hands, your design it must still be tawdry enough so as to impress the Nicky Hilton with it’s “hottness”.
The Manolo he hastens to remind you that the Nicky Hilton, she herself wishes to be the fashion designer, and has introduced the Chick by Nicky Hilton line of the clothes, the clothes which are perhaps best described as the track suits with the sequins and rhinestones glued on.
Pefect for stumbling around the Ibiza in the stupor.
And so, with this particularly debasing challenge in mind the designers of the Project Runway set out to sell their souls to the devil.
At the end, it was again the odious Santino as the undeserved winner, with the poor, wacky, nutty, loveable-but-not-terribly-talented Lupe taking the long walk off of the short runway.
To the mind of the Manolo, the dress of the Santino it was too busy. Instead, the dress of the Andrae (ea? eea? aae?) it should have been the winner. It was simple and beautiful. In the second place the Manolo he would have put the Nick, who produced the stunning asymetrical dress. And third, it was the Daniel V., who although his material was incongrous for the carpet of red, made the wonderful party dress.
However, at the end, it was the Santino who remembered the “client”, who remembered that the dress was to be picked by the not terribly sophisticated, not terribly bright Nicky Hilton. And so he made the dress that presented the flashy detail.
Also, do not forget that the Nicky was favorably impressed by Santino’s “personality”.
Did the Manolo mention that he found the Nicky to be especialy dull? Dull in every possible connotation of the word? Dull even by the already low standards set for public Hilton behavior and intellect?
The final word of the Manolo: this week there were many beautiful dresses which were more deserving of victory.
