- The Real Housewives of New York City Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan Meet Kristen Taekman Season Premiere Mar 11 9/8c
Terri was true to Terri and, frankly, I don't understand that carping that the other designers voice about her repeated use of pants. Yes, I believe that she could sleepwalk her way through the design and construction of a perfectly fitted and proportioned pant, but they serve as a mere pedestal for the rest of her look. Here, the slim cut herringbone pant served as counterpoint to her dramatic black trench with "scale" details along the lapel and a ruffled top in an exuberant fireworks print. Stunning. P.S. What you didn't see ... We visited Diane on a Sunday. After sourcing at her sample room, the designers received $25 for notions. The trouble was that we could only find one shop that was open and that shop had no zippers and no interfacings. The designers were grumpy and whiney about this issue, and you can only imagine how many times I invoked "make it work," getting more patience challenged and louder and the day progressed. One of the designers (I won't reveal who) cited this "handicap" on the runway and I audibly groaned, "Don't make excuses." Diane retorted, "Don't think you can win my sympathy. I based my entire career on a dress that doesn't have a zipper!" Thank you, Diane. And let's all stand a salute her iconic wrap dress!
