But back to the season at hand. Right off the bat, it becomes apparent that this will be the season of people trying to become the next Christian Siriano. While “fierce” and “hot tranny mess” worked for the extremely talented winner of season four, replicating Siriano’s catch-phraseology seems cheesy and desperate. Pathological tanner Blayne Walsh seems determined to try. He nicknamed his first look “Girlicious,” and has since convinced a reluctant Tim Gunn to say “Holla atcha boy” instead of “Make it work!” Other immediate personality standouts include Stella Zotis, who loves working with “‘leah-thah,” and Stephen “Suede” Baum, who sports a faux-hawk and perpetually refers to himself in third person. The contestants’ diva-like personalities have led to increased screen time for arguments and snide commentary. Few of the designers have demonstrated the ability to work together, making Brooke Shields’s challenge to design something for her to wear on Lipstick Jungle a true test. Keith Bryce and Kenley Collins bickered so much over their choice of fabric that Gunn needed to play moderator. Daniel Feld and Kelli Martin attacked one another on the runway, each questioning the other’s taste level. Even when not working together, the designers feel the need to discuss the outfits created by those around them. Stella’s leatherwork involves beating her material to death with a hammer, and she clashed with Blayne over her fondness for the goth-punk aesthetic. <...> - per Slant Magazine [Amelia Sims]
