(If you haven’t, it’s here). In it, Tim admits that he attempted suicide when he was 17, which just hurts my heart, because I cannot imagine a world without Tim Gunn in it. Or maybe I can, but it would, in a word, suck and we really don’t even want to think about it, honestly. It would be like a world without Lanvin or “Modern Family,” but even worse. Anyway, big props to Tim Gunn for reaching out and sharing in that wonderfully avuncular way he has.
But enough about warm fuzziness, because this is “PR” and that means bitchy designers, which this season specifically means one uber bitchy designer, which means Gwetchen. What does Gwetchen do first thing in the morning? She wakes up and sighs to April about how thrilled she is that Valerie and Ivy are gone, as they giggled in the morning. God forbid someone wake up in a good mood, Gwetchen.
On the runway, Heidi informs the designers they must change models. I would care more about this if ... actually, I have no idea what would make me care about this.
Anyway, Heidi informs the designers they will be creating looks for her active wear line for New Balance. To give them a taste of her designing brilliance, she shows off six of her existing designs. Heidi shouldn’t design stuff. It’s boooooring. Or, as Gwetchen likes to say “retail driven and basic.” In other words, boring.
