Quote Of The Week

It comes from Project Runway Judge Michael Kors commenting on the dress below: “She looks like a transvestite flamenco dancer at a funeral.”

The challenge involved making clothes out of party favors. Casanova, the designer in question, not only made this hideous dress, he also wigged out his competitors by skinning some plush puppies. I am not making this up.

    I once saw a great museum piece where the artist had skinned and dissected about a hundred Furbies and put their clacking eyes and beaks on one wall, of a darkened room, painted black. The eyes and beaks were still wired to open and close. It was done as though it were the studio of a naturalist who was studying Furbies and anatomizing them. It was pretty great. Same museum , the DeCordova in MA, had a fantastic exhibit by a woman who made things like wedding dresses and other things out of coffee filters. Gorgeous, and absolutely revelatory.

    I don’t see how she looks like a “transvestite.” Is Kors transphobic or something?

    Nah, Interro. He’s just as fond of a snappy one liner as I am.
