The Project Runway Updates

Manolo says, as soon as the Manolo leaves the country, to Argentina, the place where the Project Runway does appear on the television, only many months later, the much awaited Season Five contestant drama finally appears, in the form of Retro Girl Kenley’s big obnoxious meltdown.

Ayyyy! And the Manolo has missed it! Thankfully, the Blogging the Project Runway stands ready to give the Manolo the secondhand news.

By the way, the Manolo is happy to see that two of his picks for the finals, Jarell and Korto have made it, along with Leanne, who has well exceeded the Manolo’s earlier expectations. His money is on Korto to win everything, as she is the one true original from this season.

Also, the Manolo’s internet friend Susanna sent the Manolo the email that Jarell was sounding very Manolo-ish in the last night’s episode, saying, “There’s such a thin line between luxury and low class.”

The actual quote of the Shoeblogger is “The true fashion is found on the border between the classic and the trashy.”

    Korto! Korto! Korto! As my Mami always says, “Give enough rope to an idiot and she’ll hang hang herself, seguro!”

    I thought the show was unfair to Jarell. He won nothing. It should have guaranteed him a spot in the final three. Furthermore Kenely should have lost the previous challenge. Her design and workmanship has horrible. I know the drama helps the ratings but Kenely is still standing because a rotten attitude sells on reality tv. I have never liked any of her designs and I love vintage clothing.

    I agree, Long Island — why bother giving Jarell the win at all, if he still has to compete with the others for a spot in the finals? Personally I think they should have said that there was no winner (none of the gowns stood out, IMHO) but also no loser. Either that, or make Kenley and Korto do the runoff, like Rami and Chris last year.

    If Kenley makes the finals, I’m going to be ill. I couldn’t believe that she claimed to have been “fighting her whole life” while standing next to Korto, an actual war refugee. Lots of other women move to NYC right out of school and have trouble breaking into fashion, Kenley. Sorry, but you’re not that special.

    I think that jarell is going to take the win.
    His designs are fierce.
    I cant stand Kenley and her stuck-up attitude.
    That girl needs to be straightened out.

    ummm.. nick, jarell didnt win he was eliminated. but i think he should have been in the final 3 because he offered variety unlike kenley who just made vintage looking dresses
