S6 - Gordana Gehlhausen
Posted Aug 24, 2009 @ 12:14 PM
Who else was suddenly sad that we'll never get a Project Runway/Top Chef crossover?

Anyway, I kind of love Gordana. She seems so mature and no-bullshit, which is always good. And I really liked her dress this week, and it could have won if it were gown-length.

I loved the geometric stuff at the top of her dress, but I agree, the length on her dress was more cocktail and less red carpet for the style that it was.

I love both her outfits. I thought her red carpet dress would have worked for something like the Golden Globes. And I would wear her maternity outfit, even without being pregnant.

Did anyone else notice that Gordana and her model (Tara) have the same chin?
I don't think Tara's chin has a divot, but they also have rather similar hair color, hairstyle, jawline, and cheekbones. When dimple-chinned, reddish-haired Nicolas picked Gordana for the team challenge, the three of them ended up looking like the strawberry-blonde chinny family during the judging. (Celine was... their adopted daughter, or a visiting exchange student from the planet Glamazon.)
Maybe it's a quirky law of nature that Gordana attracts similar-looking people to her. Maybe she has a flatironed, high-cheekboned mail carrier, and when she hops in a taxi, there's a strawberry-blond, square-jawed driver, and on PR, there's a chinny, reddish-haired cameraman filming her.

Maybe she should change from "What should I do with this challenge" to "What do I want to do with this challenge".

I think that Zoe Glassner has it out for Gordana, possibly due to her "advanced age" (rolls eyes.)
It seems like the judges have it out for older designers this season, which I'm not sure would be the case if both MK and Nina were still judging. Some of the young designers seem to slide by with poorly constructed garments while Gordana always ends up on the bottom. I'm hoping now that Tara is gone and Gordana has a more talented model, she won't end up in the bottom as often. Althea has a lot of lackluster designs, but Tanisha's walk has been able to save many a look. I thought it was interesting how in the last challenge Gordana's look used more of an Epperson style with the frayed fabric strips. Once Epperson departed from that aesthetic, he got kicked off.

I don't know why Heidi had to say that 'for once' crap, but at least Gordana got the win - deservedly, IMHO. And I was touched, on her behalf, that her fellow contestants were so clearly thrilled with the win.
With Heidi hating her - I do wonder why - and the overall judging tending to underrate her for the most part, I don't know if she'll make Bryant Park. I just know I want to see a lot more of her designs.

This week's recap is the second in a row in which LuluBates has referred to Gordana as German. LuluBates, Gordana's not German; she is Croatian. I'm sorry if I'm being picky.
According to T-Lo via Lifetime, she's "from a small Serbian village in Bosnia". Though she could be ethnically Croatian, I guess... Where'd you read that?
--And ethnicity aside, I fully love her and believe that she ought to take this whole thing. Considering how begrudgingly they handed her the win last week, though, I don't see it happening..

With Heidi hating her - I do wonder why
I don't get it either. I understand her being mean to Mitchell because he was an idiot but why a nice lady like Gordana? I don't think Heidi's a bitch but she seems to have it in for Gordana to a weird degree. Why couldn't she just support her when she did well and leave out the backhanded compliments.

An awful lot of us love you, Gordana!

She's mean to Gordana in a way that is clear that Heidi has a problem with her that goes beyond the clothes. It's disturbing.

But nobody seems to have an eye for color this season.
Posted Nov 6, 2009 @ 8:36 PM
Between what I still believe is Heidi's deep hatred of you - her final 'encouraging' comments seemed generic and lukewarm to me - and the lack of any consistent judging ethos, I maintain that you were robbed.
Regardless of PR, I will continue to follow your career and I hope to be able to buy GoGa creations in the future.

I'm not fond of Gordana, but since her dress was much better executed than Althea's, it would have been nice if they had allowed her to go to fashion week as well. But, I don't know the ins and outs of the production problems that might have caused.
Posted Nov 7, 2009 @ 4:54 PM
Gordana seems to think the reasons were economic - though she decries them, understandably - and I have to admit I admire her even more for not jumping to the conclusion that it might have been personal, given Heidi's attitude towards her.
btw, my off-line friends who watch PR all think Gordana was robbed completely.

Gordana came in fourth and this was the first time in the history of PR that the fourth place designer wasn't given the money to show (out of competition and off camera) at Bryant Park.
That's a real shame, I've seen her post-runway collection and it's gorgeous.
