Make it work [Project Runway Australia]
OMFG Kelly Rowland!
Except… not really. Kelly is famous and all, and I hear that she’s a genuine and lovely person – but a worldwide sensation, she is not. Let’s face it: she’s the poor man’s Beyonce. That said, Kelly’s still a bona fide celebrity, and Helen didn’t have to act all smug and superior about never having heard of her. Shut up, Helen.
By my count, that’s approximately the 633rd “Shut up, Helen” I’ve offered this season.
However, in light of Helen’s elimination it’s probably going to be one of the last (at least till the reunion episode). Ding dong, the witch is dead – I can’t believe that, in two weeks, PRAus has dumped its two most distinctive character. Who’s left to fill the void of personality? Lui?!
Juli’s winning effort; Brint’s should’ve-won creation; Helen’s losing… thing
Juli’s comeback: Maybe I spoke a little too soon last week when I declared that Juli’s number is up. Of course she would go and make the too-cute winning design the following week. Adorable as her Little Mermaid-ish creation was, though, I actually preferred Brint’s. His looked like something Kelly really would wear on stage.
Helen breaks loose: Helen’s little number was not terrible – it certainly wasn’t as bad as the gold sack that Lui whipped up in 45 minutes (which, admittedly, is pretty impressive). It just had Helen’s typical touch of self-declared mediocrity… which makes it all the more infuriating that in a post-elimination interview with TV Week, she said she’d go “even harder” if she had a chance to do the competition again. Harder than what?
A new bad girl: Judging by the promos for next week’s episode, Leigh is poised to take over Helen’s spot as designated villain. Which suits me fine – with his excessive campiness, foul soul patch and soulless blue eyes, Leigh makes the perfect reality baddie.
The worst-stocked fabric store ever: World War III nearly broke out early in the episode when it emerged that there wasn’t enough lace fringing at the fabric store for both Lui and Leigh. Two weeks ago there was a similar incident when the store didn’t have any pink silk. Um, does that fabric store actually have any fabric? That would never happen at Mood.
