Project Runway Pinas S01E13 -- the designers upclose

First to be introduced were the judges...Rajo Laurel -- the renowned fashion designer; Apples Aberin-Sadhwani -- TopModel extraordinaire; Jojie Lloren -- not a judge but he served as the mentor/tormentor of the designers; and of course the stunning Ms. Terresa Herrera, PRP host. Each with incredibly amazing backgrounds with their respective grounds of expertise...

Then the designers: from Manila, then in the Visayas then Mindanao...then back to Luzon. At least fair sila... Walang drama kung wala ang mga taga ViMinda, right? Watching this episode, nothing really changed with my opinions about the designers... I know whom I hate and love. Pero syempre, may bago... Natuklasan ko na Philip is so entertaining..if you know what I mean. I like his candid personality and find it very amusing. Then I found out that Lorymer is kinda cute on TV. haha! May ganon?! Si Eli naman, though everyone knows how buff he is, parang he was a bit conservative all through out the show. I mean, mas madalas ko pa atang nakitang naka sando si Philip than him... Just an observation ok?! hehe!

Natakot ako kay Bo dun sa mini lines part... haha! It's nice to see non-TV personalities do these stuff. I like Ava with her voodoo-like act...Basta funny yung part na yun! hehe!

So...first impressions do last. Like to hate! Eli, based on what I watched on TV, he does know how to do the backstabbing. But somehow, people loved this guy [including moi] because of the brutally frank remarks. With Lord naman, he should've stayed a bit longer. I mean, I believe this guy really got talent. Nakita ko ulit yung GULAT moment ni Philip! hahaha! Love that! And the resident drama queen was no other than VeeJay.

FUCK! I was just thrilled when the judges and Mr. Jigs Mayuga [resident make-up artist for PRP and my crush...can't deny that..hehe!] impersonate some of the designers... Jigs as Eli [bagay], Rajo as Aries [super, super hilarious with the fake bangs!!! haha!], Terresa as Mara [kuha nya in fairness!!!] and Apples as Jaz [,love].

I love the fact that they did this particular episode [somewhat like ANTM recap episodes] to get some extra insight with what went on behind the runway. Hmmm... Aries won a number of challenges; Veejay won one or two [not sure]; and Philip have at least two or three in the bag... More and more I tend to root for Philip than the original bet VeeJay. Am just torn with these two. I'll be super pissed if someone other than these two win...DUH?! Sino pa bah?

Why does it have to be so effin addictive?

Here I am, facing my pc at exactly 12:35 am, simply because I wanna share you my new found addiction...SKINS.

[Cassie, Michelle, Tony, Effy, Anwar, Sid, Chris, Jal and Maxxie]

I recently finished watching the first season of Skins [my new addiction] and just watched the first episode of the Second season... I first knew about this U.K. based series from YouTube because of one particular character, Maxxie. Well, it was sort of odd starting with the 6th episode first since I searched Maxxie instead of Skins in my fave torrent site. So anyway, my first impression with it was that it's a typical young adult series with a twist. The twist is that they swear almost every other second and lots of raging horny teens. That episode was dedicated to Maxxie's and Anwar's character and the setting was that they went to Russia for a school field trip. Maxxie's gay by the way and Anwar was the Indian Muslim boy who's a bit in denial with his best buddy's identity.

I only watched one episode because I'm not that crazy bout it then. Then I recently found out that a friend of mine was so into it that made me think why not watch the whole thing. At least it makes more sense now. I get to know each characters identity and their extra ordinarily unique situations and life styles. It was only then that I found the deeper people in these 17 y/o's. A playboy who seem to f*ck with everybody [Tony], a girl with an eating disorder [Cassie], a black girl who said that brown dress is green [Jal], a boy who's in love with his psychology teacher [Chris], a boy who did his homework after all [Sid], the gay boy [Maxxie] and his Muslim buddy [Anwar], the girl who's in love with her playboy BF [Michelle], and the girl who had an overdose [Effy].

Best episodes so far [for me] were the last two episodes of the first season. They were quite disturbing at some point but for sure you'll learn a lot from it. It was when Tony started to stop being jerk and Cassie almost taken her own life because of Sid. The finale was just so, so pheonomenal. It is here that finally declared to myself that this is my new addiction.

As I've said, I just watched S02E01 and I can't help but compare it with Queer as Folk. I remember there was an almost similar case wherein someone got a bit of some brain injury. In Skins, in the first season finale, when Tony finally managed to say I love you to Michelle, he got hit by a bus [and managed to sing along with the others in the closing song...ooohh baby, baby, it's a wild world...Love that song]. Whereas in QAF, Justin got hit by a homophobe on the head with a baseball bat. Both were quite traumatic but I have to say that it was more intense in QAF. It's quite funny that both these series started their second season showing these guys having trouble writing and how frustrated they are on their current state. And with that note, I'll make sure to finish Skins no matter what...hehe!

To rap it up, here's the song Wild World "performed" by the main cast...

Project Runway S05E14 -- the big FINALE

Well, I was expecting a reunion episode this week but the FINALE was ten times better! Hehe! So the final there were Korto, Kenley and Leanne...

The usual fashion show preparations were done... The model selections, make-up consultations, alterarions, etc. In the model selections, there were some familiar faces like Andrea [grape squasher girl from ANTM], Shannon [from MakeMeASupermodel], Naima [ANTM4 winner], Morgan [the evil model from hell of PR season 1], Bianca [Bianker for Nigel and Twiggy of ANTM] and Daniel [a.k.a. Dani...ANTM6 winner].It was a lot of work for the designers but they made it work after all. It was crazy how Korto made another two looks [the designers presented 10 looks on the runway but made 12]. The three collections were very identifiable on who made 'em and their respective personalities. Korto's was very Nature inspired and very Afrocentric. Kenley' was the materialized Alice in Wonderland look. Leane went for the clean and breezey look -- easy to look at but quite well made and fashion forward.

Korto's [with the Jaslene clone model]



Guest judge J. Lo didn't make it because of a foot injury [I think] so the last minute choice as proxy was no other than Tim Gunn. That was a first. Another first was the fact that it was an all-female-finale. And it was actually surprising that the criticisms that the designers got were very minimal. All these three designers' collection were applaudable but only one could win.'re OUT.

Korto... you're out.


I was super happy when Heidi revealed the winner. She's my bet talaga! Hehehe!

One time for the Fashion Assasin!!! Woohoo! She looked a bit of a psycho in front of the camera at the last part when she said "I just won Project Runway!" but I find it quite adorable in a weird, weird way...

Project Runway Pinas S01E12 -- have the flare for drama?

All that you will read here are purely just opinions so I hope wag magalit yung matatamaan. hehe! Peace in advance! These are based on the reunion episode ha!


Tim Gunn of the Philippines [PR counterpart that is]. I find him funny in the sense that he finds a way to bring in some humor while giving out his comments and suggestions. The best joke he made I think was on Mara's winning avant garde dress. hehe! Wala lang!


This episode reminded me how i effin dislike Aries. That first episode almost made me throw up. I guess the personality fits the exterior. And because of this, it made me love the mom designer. Hahaha! Aside from that particular incedent, the other cat fights were almost childish. Ngayon ko lang narealize, VeeJay had a handful of tearful moments in the show... These girls just love the drama...


Now this part is the time for quotable quotes like...

"It's beach-y not bitchy..."

I'll just make it short with this one. Rajo -- a very frank but in a very objective way and super dupper eloquent. Apples -- over and over again I find her face very, very stiff. Terresa -- Damn prettier than Apples [just an opinion OK?!]


It was like Rajo vs. Eli. Wow! Just look what pressure can do. I personally cannot picture myself saying something like "wear a bra" to someone like Rajo. Rajo's "man boobs" is just no match with Eli's firm pecks but that specific comment was under the belt. Peace ELI! I still like this guy though for calling Aries the Tiyanak! Hehehe! The fan fave price hands down is Eli's. Binoto ko yan eh! hehe!

TOP 3 Funniest Moments

Opinion ko lang po ito ha so make up your own. hehe!

TOP 3. Mommy Loida reprmanded Aries because of his awful screeching noise...I mean song.

TOP 2. The "campagne red" incident by VeeJay. Wala lang! Naaliw lang talaga ako!

TOP 1. The song number sabay gulat epek by no other than Philip Tampus! Wooohooo!!! You won gurl!

CRYIN moments

Best actress award goes's a tie! VeeJay Floresca and Aries Lagat! Enough said!

WHO's you're BET?

It's either VeeJay or Philip in my opinion... Pero it seems like walang pala si VeeJay sa mga fellow designers nya... I wonder why... Kaw? Sino na bet nyo?

Maxxie or Justin?

Whom would you rather be with? Be friends with? Hang out with? Get dirty with [naughty]?

Maxxie [Mitch Hewer]

Justin [Randy Harrison]

The extra sensitive Maxxie of Skins? or the unapologetic Justin of Queer as Folk? Both know how to draw...hmmm interesting common talent... BTW, Mitch Hewer a.k.a. Maxxie [19 y/o] is a non-gay dude in real life unlike Randy Harrison a.k.a. Justin Taylor [30 y/o... surprising actually] who's an openly gay guy. Effin great actors with great performances background... So, who's your pick?

Celebrity Duets -- just too good to be true

Indeed it was just too good to be true that Mr. Younghusband came this far in the competition but in all fairness to him, he really was the most improved. I especifically like this performance with Eula Valdez...Can the title be anymore perfect for him...

Introduced by no other than his equally [if not more] delectable brother James. How...cute?! hehe! It was just touching how they care for each other. Saw him cry last night on national television and that was a bit surprising just because no one cried like that before on that show [as far as I can remember] because he/she was eliminated. Probably because he enjoyed it too much and everyone witnessed the drastic change from his first day on Celebrity Duets til he was eliminated.Sayang, I sort of enjoyed pa naman when Ogie was making his gay jokes on Phil. Benta pramis! Hehehe!

Project Runway S05E13 -- why be the bridesmaid?

So, as we all know, the four remaining designers would design their collection for the New York Fashion Week at Bryant Park but only three would push through. To break the tie, before sending them home to start their work, they were given a challenge...a wedding gown. As much as they don't want any extra work, they just have no choice.

Four weeks after the last runway show, Tim visited each of the designers for consultation and to meet their folks. All of 'em have their 'love interests' just as what Jerell put it except for Kenley. I wonder why... I have to say that each of 'em have made some interesting pieces even Kenley. Then after 2 months of work, work, work, they all went back to New York. Though for a moment or two, the atmosphere of the Presidential Suite went a bit tensed once Kenley appeared at the door but surprisingly, she learned to tone it down. Quite positive actually.

They finally went to the Bluefly studio for another round of work. Poof! Came another challenge...the bridesmaid dress. It's a lot of stress but then again, they have no choice.

Jerell -- wedding dress

Jerell -- bridesmaid dress

Kenley -- wedding dress

Kenley -- bridesmaid dress

Korto -- wedding dress

Korto -- bridesmaid dress

Leanne -- wedding dress

Leanne -- bridesmaid dress

Though Kenley's wedding gown was compared to Alexander McQueen's, the judges was still impressed with the worksmanship and they loved it. I guess Leanne's was the one who won the challenge [no winner was chosen for this round] for her architectural construction of her wedding gown. Korto's and Jerell's were quite bad that even I can tell that they were pretty bad. Korto's quite overworked and Jerell's sort of garish and way over embelished on the top part. Again, like Mara of PRP, I hate to see Jerell go over Kenley [ganda naman ni Kenley kumpara sa tiyanak na si *toot*] but I guess, with this round, the latter deserved that third spot for Bryant Park.

America's Next Top Model S11E07 -- too fierce for the FIERCEEs

It is a pretty interesting episode this week. You really get to see the models working it to the limit. Tyra showed up for a challenge --SURPRISE-- while teaching the girls how to hone those signiture poses. I really miss the on-panel challenges... As much as I say that I don't like McKey that much, I think she really has the makings of a model just like what Paulina said. Hurrah, hurrah to my TRUE personal fave, Marjorie for winning the challenge by bringing that "hunch back of Notre Dame"... Tsk! Tsk! Well... Hehe!

This week's photoshoot was themed as the scenes from an awards night, particularly the Fiercees. It's all about Tyra huh?! So anyway, I do think that it was a fab shoot since all the girls were dolled up. Horrah, horrah again to Marjorie for baggin the best photo of the bunch! The natural talent beats the one time good shots huh?! Figure it out yourself...hehe! I like McKey's and Analeigh's fotos too!!! I like the attitude problem foto of Analeigh makin it the second best. Miss high fashion model Lauren Brie fell flat to the ground when she failed to impress the judges with her 'tripping' picture and was sent home.




Lauren Brie

Marjorie -- best picture of the week

Project Runway Pinas S01E11 -- make or break the Imeldific

When I saw the trip destination for the designers, immediately I thought of one guy. OMG! I was so fuckin thrilled once I saw Carlos Celdran, the fabulous tour guide extra ordinaire!!! I was like WEEE!!! Hehehe! Angie, eto na yung tour natin! HEHE! Same guy, same personality, not same place though. Love, love, love this guy!

Anyways... The challenge is to make a 'terno'. To make it a bit untraditional could really be a challenge and a half. I mean the 'terno' literally means a sort of butterfly sleeved gown and nothing else. I couldn't thing of anyone better lookin in a terno than the former first lady, Imelda Marcos. An icon like no other. O, di ba pang TopModel...hehe!

Last runway show, last chance to wow the judges before the Philippine Fashion Week. In my opinion, Project Runway Philippines is way, way far from the tragic PNTM. That was just dreadful. Thank goodness, they pulled it off this time. Three designers did pheonomenal job doing the challenge and one clear eliminee... The tribe has spoken, este judges pala... Philip won the challenge by making a modern 'saya'. It was Aries and Mara at the bottom two. Oh how I wish they vote out the bitch tiyanak out...but... FUCK! I hate to see Mara go but this challenge's just not for her...

So who will win? Philip? VeeJay? or Aries?

Project Runway Philippines reunion next week!

ANTM 11 -- international destination spoiler

I saw some spoiler pictures from the TopModel community in LiveJournal on this cycle's international destination. According to the caption of the pictures, they went to Amsterdam. I can't have the pics posted here so just follow this link. It shows the girls walkin on the street and what intrigued me was that Clark was there too... Hmmm... Are they bringing her back in the competition? I can be wrong so I want to hear from you guys!!! BTW, the girls shown in the picture were Elina, Marjorie, Sheena, Joslyn and what appears to be Clark... No Samantha, sorry... But hey, malay mo di lang nagkasya sa picture..hehe!

Project Runway S05E12 -- the race to Bryant Park

Right at the start of this week's show, one thing was in my mind...Send Kenley home!!! Send that bitch home! Oh well...

It supposed to be the last runway show before the finale at Bryant Park. The challenge as to create a look that's inspired by the numero uno muse of all time, Mother Nature. They went to this park to take some pictures to serve as an inspiration for their creation. It didn't quite turned out to be an all glam and fab challenge for everyone was overwhelmed by the pressure since it was the make it or break it point of the competition. As we all know, Kenley being the resident bitch of the house, was singled out and was isolated by the other three designers. Mainly because of her obnoxious personality. Over and over again, my reviews about her was so negative. At one point of this particular episode, I felt a bit sorry for her because all through out this challenge, it was as if she's the personification of loneliness. But towards the end of the show at the judging panel, I definitely think she deserves all the thrashing. Very unrespectful. And her dress, UGLY! Tim and the judges was turned off by the scally look but she was like Thank You that was the look I was going for. I was like...what?

Jerell -- winner




As for the other designers, everyone of 'em have a particular problem that made the judges nervous. Jerell, though he won this challenge, was critiqued with the finishes of his dress. Korto's work was a bit of a beauty pageant gown and not quite what Korto usually does. And as for Leanne, though praised with her new found softness, had trouble at the back side of her work with a distracting blue cloth thrown there. With all of these been said, the judges have decided not to eliminate anyone just yet... All four designers will go home and create their own collections; return to NYC to present 'em to the judges, then one won't push through and will be eliminated. It was like last season when Rami and Chris March competed for that third spot to Bryant Park but this time, all four of 'em will compete to break the tie for the spot.

America's Next Top Model S11E06 -- Disasters Flipped Upside Down

Finally, Marjorie came into a breaking point. Not that she cried or anything. I don't think she's the cry baby type. Maybe, criticism got the best of her and sort of melted down on Paulina's evaluation of her on the challenge [which is self styling in catalog clothings]. So anyway, McKey won the challenge and got 50 extra frames for the photoshoot. All those negativities was carried over into the house courtesy of Marjorie of course. Perhaps all this attitude problem was primarily because of her upbringing and cultural background. Came in Samantha butting in with the whole negative energy issue. Maybe it's the editing again that makes me dislike Sam. Out of the girls who were trying to talk it out of Marjorie, it was Sam that turned a bit too bitchy bout it. Yeah, at some point I agree with her opinion but I think it was a little too much.

Then, came the photoshoot. This week's theme is L.A. Disasters. With this one, the model standings were all mixed up and jumbled again in terms of performance... I'm not crazy about the theme but in a way it's cool.

Analeigh -- Sta. Ana Winds

Clark -- Blackout

Elina -- Earthquake

Joslyn -- Rockslide

Lauren Brie -- Snowstorm

Marjorie -- Traffic Jam

McKey -- Heat Wave

Samantha -- Tidal Wave

Sheena -- Sandstorm

Apparently, CW is not yet releasing the photos for this week. I'll post 'em as soon as it shows up. Samantha was in the bottom two last time and successfully redeemed herself surfacing to the top. Clark's celebration on being the top girl was short lived as she was sent home because she didn't commit with it... Surprise, surprise, Elina was the first to hug her... Shocking...

Project Runway Pinas S01E10 -- Pinoy Avant Garde

Once I saw the building where the designers went, I immediately recognized it as Rajo's Fashion House. Uyyy...may alam daw ba talaga ako! Haha! I've been there twice [thanks ulit Angie! hehe!] of course with Angie and Allan [for Angie's theses BTW].

So anyway...ang drama ni Aries huh! Draining energy from the viewers ba. It was funny because while Rajo was taking the designers for a tour at his place, I was like, hey I sat there at that very seat! Hehe! I really friggin clean and minimalistic office he got. As what Rajo said in Angie's interview, Ms. Natori told him that his fashion house is very much like Valentino's.

This week's challenge was a fun one since it's all about making garments using our very own indigenous materials like abaca fibers. Pinoy Avant Garde! Expectations are running high and I personally think that each and everyone of 'em are living up to it. VeeJay made me laugh again. Last, last week, the "champagne RED" fabric was super hilarious. Then this week his model said that she looked like a PATO when she fitted Veejay's outfit and he was like "Ay oo nga, muka ka ngang PATO". Hehe!

To Team MARA out there, congrats! An "I Looove IT!" from Rajo was the best compliment for the week and was enough to name her the winner for this challenge. Apparently and surprisingly, all of 'em didn't get a perfect positive feedbacks from the judges. In fact, a lot of negatives. Lacks editing, amateur-ish, non-surprising, not avant garde enough... agree ba kayo? Jaz got the "ingat" from Terresa and VeeJay's "duster" went on...

OMG nabawasan ulit top three ko! Waahhh! My new top three line up... Mara, VeeJay, Philip.

Eh sa ayoko kay Aries eh! Drama queen...jowk!
