I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to get the latest Project Catwalk today, because most weeks it's at least Wednesday before it shows up (ATTENTION SKY ONE... you need to sell your shows on the iTunes Music Store so we poor Americans can see them in a timely manner!!)
Anyway, I start watching and was very pleased that Liz was looking particularly hot in this episode. I like it when she wears simple outfits that flatter her kickin' body rather than the more crazy stuff that covers it up. I mean, less is always more when you look like this...
Better yet, the camera man and film editor final realized who it is they're dealing with, and have started to use appropriate shots to fully exploit the grandeur that is Elizabeth Hurley...
But then the best news ever is announced...
OMFG!! THIS WEEK'S COMPETITION IS TO DESIGN A NEW DRESS FOR ELIZABETH HURLEY!! How utterly brilliant! Why don't they do this every week? The good news is that this means we get to see a bit more of her this time... including some rather fabulous shots of Liz describing what kind of clothes she likes to wear...
I was desperately hoping that Liz would be modeling all the the dresses on the catwalk but, alas, this was not to be. It was just like a regular show with Liz in the judges seat looking hot and making notes.
And that's when IT happened.
That's when the most unfathomable, totally incomprehensible thing ever to air on television was shown in one heart-stopping, unbelievable moment.
Some dumbass said that he thought a dress was too sexy for Elizabeth Hurley to wear.
Yes, you read that right. This stupid queen actually had the balls (or lack thereof) to say that an article of clothing was not appropriate for THE Elizabeth Hurley... not because it was ugly or poorly made... but because it was TOO SEXY for her...
WHAT THE BLOODY F#@%?!?
Did he somehow FORGET what Liz looks like? She was sitting right next to him... all he had to do before opening his stupid mouth was turn his head and LOOK at her so he could realize "oh shit... I almost made a terrible mistake by saying something outrageously idiotic! How could I suggest that there could possibly be a dress that is too sexy for this brutally hot piece of eye-candy! How silly of me! What a silly little pickle I am!!"
This monkey-spanker actually said IT. I was hoping that Liz would walk over and beat the shit out of him (seriously, I would have paid money for that action) but if she did whip up on him, they edited that bit out. Or maybe she waited until after the show was over, then set his car on fire... with him in it??
Then again, at the end of the day he'll still be a pathetic little bitch that nobody cares about... and she'll still be Elizabeth Hurley.
I guess there's no worse punishment than that.
But there should be.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Aside from the potential for vehicular arson, what were the visible reactions on Liz’s part. I’m wondering if there was any noteworthy disappointment on her face or did she say anything in response?
say your “he’s just a pathetic little bitch” mantra and breathe.
he’s just jealous.
Earlier in the episode, “Julian” had said something like “that dress looks too young for you” and Elizabeth Hurley replied “are you saying I’m old Julian?” – it was annoying, but I took it as more of a slam on the DRESS than on LIZ.
But the last remark couldn’t be taken as anything BUT a slam on Liz, and I find it ironic that he could say this about a woman who made a career out of being sexy.
I can only guess that Rach is right and he’s jealous.
What an idiot! She’s even beautiful by scientific standards (did you see those eps on TLC about the face, beauty, facial recognition? John Cleese and Elizabeth Hurley hosted them a few years back.) Ok beauty isn’t the same as sexy exactly, but there’s no question she’s sexy.
A dress may be in poor taste, but never Liz.
Just think of it this way: he’s one less man in your way to spending time with Liz.
Elizabeth Hurley — the only fathomable excuse for the boyfriend making me watch Bedazzled.
Bedazzled — one of the greatest movies of all time that was made so specifically because of Elizabeth Hurley’s masterful performance as “The Devil.” I’ve seen it at least 30 times, and love it more with each new viewing.
And I never saw the “science of beauty” program you mention… I doubt it ever made it to here in the States?? Liz would make for the perfect host, certainly! 🙂
Elizabeth Hurley in that outfit reminds me of Chris Kattan playing Antonio Banderas: “No, TOO SEXY!” She does look finer than ever here.
OMG…I thought that puffter was Carson Daly at first, I swear! What a complete fool.
Ms. Hurley is Ms. Hotley…she’s beautiful personified. I loved Bedazzled! I thought she did a marvelous and quite humorous job in it.
Rabbit–nuhn-uh, there is another reason: As Dave and I have discussed, I have seen Bedazzled almost as many times as him (OK, half as many) because of my “thang” for Brendan Fraser, AND the fact that, even as a straight woman, I love watching Liz as the devil get to wear all those FANTASTIC outfits!
I’m lucky that I can get hubby to indulge my Brendan-lust since the movies I will watch over and over have sexy Liz Hurley and sexy Rachel Weisz–both frequently in scanty outfits. By comparison, I’ve only gotten him through “Gods And Monsters,” which CLEARLY has the most Brendan-fix, twice. And “Twenty Bucks” only once. 🙁
And, Dave, this guy is obviously one of those to whom, once a woman has birthed a child and/or passed the age of 25, she is no longer “the sexy.” The only thing that made the American version watchable for me this year was seeing the kick-butt maternity clothes they had Heidi Klum in. WOW. And she’s not nearly the hottie that E.H. is.
Yes, Dave–“The Science of Beauty” was aired–a LOT–here in the states. I saw it, more than once, on The Learning Channel. It was a fascinating study of what constitutes beauty to the human brain, and it was very, um…engineering-like! Factors such as symmetry between the two sides of the face, width of eye-spacing, size of eyes in relation to face, etc. etc. It was a mini-series, in one-hour segments. There was one segment about what attracted men to women, and I recall being vaguely disturbed at the revelation that men prefer full, pouty lips because they are reminiscent of a vagina (there, I just got you some extra hits). I remember Sharon Stone being the narrator, but not whether she appeared onscreen or not. It was at least 10 years ago. Does TLC or its parent company Discovery Channel sell DVDs of shows?
I sure hope sky one DON’T start putting shows on iTunes as seen as we don’t even have a bleeding TV show section on the UK iTunes yet! Grrrr at apple.
I don’t want to alarm you, but through a friend of a friend I heard that Elizabeth Hurley has three nipples.
I don’t know if that makes any difference to you, but she does.
I’m fairly sure that dresses can be too sexy for, say, Queen Elizabeth. But for Liz? The sexual sky’s the limit! Perhaps the guy was drugged by Liz’s overprotective boyfriend?
The ‘queen’ is obviously trying to bait you. He is suffering from Simon Cowell syndrome – “I’ll say saomething mean or slightly controversial and get people to talk about me.”
Moron. His pathetic opinion doesn’t count.
Elizabeth Hurley is a goddess who looks great in everything any fashion designer throws at her.
(whispering): Sandra, we don’t mention the existence of you-know-who’s overprotective you-know-what in this space. It interferes with Dave’s reality, which is that Liz is simply waiting for his call so she can come take him away from all this. shhhhhhhh.
(whispers to Belinda – thanks for the reminder)
Um…I meant, in the last sentence, by the guy who HOLDS HER HOSTAGE FROM HER TRUE LOVE: Dave, of course.
I have finally had somet ime to hang out here, and check out your fantastic blog. Your creative talent oozes! Belinda first showed me your site not too long ago and then when you decorated the IT2M loft, well, I KNEW I had to get my ass over here! I’m glad I did. You are SO blogrolled…
Until next time!
Dave it looks like you feel the same way about Elizabeth Hurley as I do about Sophie Marceau.
And I have it so bad I can’t think of a witty line to finish this entry.
What would get you more upset — saying “your mother wears army boots” or saying “Elizabeth Hurley is not sexy enough for army boots?”
i can tell you were superbly angry since you were hoping Liz set the guy’s car “on file”
you rarely do that…so this one must’ve been a doozy!
** can’t remember the title, but loved Liz’ tshirt with the logo “trailer trash” in some movie with that guy from Friends **
Misspell “fire”?? I don’t see any misspelling of “fire”… I would never make a mistake like that!
Here’s the imdb link to “The Human Face”:
It played on TLC here in the states in 2001.
And here it is available on amazon:
The summary focuses on Cleese, but Liz is in it quite a bit.
sounds to me like the guy was laying down a challenge and Liz should prove him wrong and wear the dress for everyone Dave to decide.
