9:30 pm. Marcy watches the credits roll on Project Runway Season 12 Episode 7.
Cynthia: Watcha watching, Marcypants?
Marcy: Project Runway and I don’t wear pants. I’m a cat. But if I did I would wear these.
|Miranda’s Super Cool Plaid Pants|
Cynthia: Ooooohhhh… those are super cute! I want to wear them!
Marcy: Yeah, well … you can’t. They were sent home.
Cynthia: They’re “out”? But they look so “in”! The other outfits must have been spectacular.
Marcy: You would think. Take a look at this.
Cynthia: Yuck. It looks like an eviscerated Smurf.
Marcy: And this.
|Jeremy’s “Pretty Woman” Look|
Cynthia: Yuck. It looks like wet toilet paper. Both of those designers are safe!?
Marcy: Yes, but I’m not finished. These were the top three looks.
|Alexandria’s Top Look|
|Ken’s Top Look|
|Helen’s Winning Look|
Cynthia: They’re all black. Where are we going? A funeral?
Marcy: All of the Smug Judges wanted to wear these three outfits.
Cynthia: Ah ha! There’s your reason! Fashion critics are too scared to wear plaid pants. Someone might make fun of them. I don’t think Nina, Heidi, Zac, and the other two guest meanies could handle it. They would rather be boring in black than provocative in plaid. They’re SCAREDY CATS!
|Scaredy Cat Sumg Judges|
Marcy: The Smug Judges are obsessed with being “Cool”. Miranda was dubbed “Not Cool” by them to which she acknowledged that they were right – she isn’t “Cool” and she doesn’t design for “Cool”.
Cynthia: That is SO COOL! I am not “Cool” and I don’t want to be “Cool”. I want to be stylish and quirky and sophisticated and fun and … well… ME!
Cynthia raises her martini glass. Marcy raises her Friskies can.
Marcy and Cynthia: CHEERS TO THE PLAID PANT WEARING GIRLS OF THE WORLD!! And a big MEOW to designers like Miranda Levy who stick to their (Tim) guns – by not bowing down to the Mean Girls of Fashion – and make clothes WE want to wear!
|We Heart Miranda|
Marcy: Anthropologie should call her.
Cynthia: Good idea, Marcy! Maybe we could get our paws on those super cool plaid pants after all!
Here's to quirkiness! Long live the nerdy rebels! May the geeks inherit the earth!
Woo hoo! Go plaid! Go nerdy rebels! Go quirky!
