High and Dry

"Marilyn’s outfit was scary, and no one would ever wear that to the White House."

It is getting exciting now half way through the show! The designers are really starting to express themselves. This week the inspiration was a pair of sunglasses and the to design a wild card outfit. Lady Gaga also showed up for some inspiration. She is cool and I would imagine her to be inspiring in a creative way until she chose the red vinyl as the fabric the designers had to incorporate! All the designers freaked out.

I have to start off by saying with each episode I dislike how Coco's acting more and more. She was rude to Marilyn and she seems always ready to walk out and leave her high and dry. I love Marilyn’s work ethic and would love a partner like her, but maybe not like Coco. Coco is so rigid and sensitive and melodramatic and difficult, not to mention she now always has a sourpuss look on her face. Marilyn was finally starting to crack from her and you could see it on her face.  Marilyn might have had a different collection and a different experience with a different partner, which is a bummer for her.  Marilyn’s outfit was scary, and no one would ever wear that to the White House. But that is what happens when you fight the entire time instead of making a dress.

Eric has a great thing going with the silver sequins to fit his jet-set female with flash. I am so that girl and I loved his design and would totally wear it.

I am shocked that Roberto was literally napping under the table. Is he serious?!!!

Patrick’s dress was scary but it looked like everything else he designed thus far. The problem with his dress this show is that it looked cheap.

Kathy’s dress -- I wasn’t into the fabric and it was too much for me but the other judges liked it. It was a great design and a lot of work

Merle’s dress was looking interesting until it came out on the runway and the color was awful and the front had the most unflattering turkey neck looking design. It wasn’t her best piece. I didn’t like the jacket either, or the bolero with the rose. Merle has great confidence and they were more relaxed because they had immunity.

Louanna’s was pretty and glamorous. I loved the sleeves and the back was sexy.

So as it should have been Eric and Louanna were top 2.

Eric took a risk and really stepped up to the plate and stayed true to his instinct and didn’t care what galina thought which was great.

I am really looking forward to episode 6!

Watch out!

It's Been Real

"As each designer introduced their collection and I saw their work unfold on the runway it made me so proud to be a part of LML."

It's been real - Kathy and Emil and Native Rose are victorious! What a finale! (How cool was Fergie? Positive, confidence building, supportive and kind - thanks for celebrating the designers rather than turning their world upside down in the last hours before the launch.)

I love that the finale was aired in 2 parts. While watching last week's episode, the stress and chaos (especially for Kathy and Emil) had my stomach was in knots and I knew the outcome. Listening to the teams reflect on our critiques as part of the creative process was awesome. We (hosts/judges) took our job seriously and are proud to have played a role in the team's evolution. As each designer introduced their collection and I saw their work unfold on the runway it made me so proud to be a part of LML. There can only be one winner, this is a competition, but in life and fashion Eric, Galina, Merle, Thai, Kathy and Emil are ALL WINNERS - BRAVO!

Eric and Galina - you stayed true to your girl from day 1. The Desi J girl loves life and is sexy 'cause she feels it. And in these clothes she will look it! You were a wonderful "mix" of personalities and talent and treated each other with kindness, class and dignity at all times. I hope you collaborate on a line and please send me the look book to place an order. Best of luck in everything, you deserve it!!!

Merle and Thai - WOW! When I saw the evening gown hit the runway all I could think about was where I was going to wear it! The asymmetrical long dress, convertible distressed look, high waisted pant - I will forward my address and credit card privately as I MUST OWN! Your vision was clear since the beginning and focus fixated on a woman like me and so many others who want versatile, beautiful clothes. I believe in each of you individually and as partners you have potential for greatness. Everything happens for a reason. I know your connection and collection will live on way past LML. Please keep in touch, I can't wait to see the future of Inside/Out. It was beyond a pleasure to spend time with both of you.

Kathy and Emil - YAY!!!! Native Rose will be launched and I can't wait to shop Rue La La and get my hands on the strapless zebra dress and black jumpsuit! I am thrilled for you. Your integrity and value for each other and the Native Rose collection was clear in both your designs and relationship. Even in the arduous moments you respected each other, never made it or took it personally. The ability to work with others, manage, lead, is a true gift and a major ingredient in the design and business recipe.

Kathy, YOU are a JEWEL! May you only experience wonderful things in your life and actualize your dreams. Emil, you exude sophistication and charm. Native Rose is going to be on everyone's radar this Spring and I hope in seasons to come.

Congratulations on it all - I am so proud of and happy for you!!!

Dan and Dean- You are my G's and I, your J. New York, LA, Mykonos, London, Milan (Italy, Europe - ha ha!) Can't wait to see you soon!

Lisa Kline - LML did not introduce us but brought us closer. In the darkest moments of your life you radiated and marched on. You are a winner and a warrior and I love you. Viki, Holly, Mark, Jen and the entire LML family - thank you for a wonderful experience.

Until we meet again

- xx Stefani
