Omg, Did you SEE the epic takedown of supermodel/Kushner bride Karlie Kloss on last night’s Project Runway?
On Monday night’s episode, the designers were tasked with creating a look for Karlie to wear in Paris, using only donated clothing from a local Goodwill.
When the supermodel asked contestant Tyler Neasloney to explain his look, he said it was “made from four pairs of pants” and that he was “gong for a very traditional like Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard, Cape Cod, Americana vibe.”
Designer and judge Brandon Maxwell was decidedly unimpressed.
“I cannot see Karlie wearing it anywhere, honestly.”
“Not even to dinner with the Kushners?” Tyler innocently asked, with a smirk.
The other contestants gasped. “Oh, no! Tyler, don’t say that out loud!” one of them muttered to herself, as another’s mouth dropped open: “Holy shit.” Another added, “I’m gonna throw up. Literally might be sick.”
The judges clutched their metaphorical pearls and looked like they were about to explode. And Karlie… Karlie looked like she was about to murder him.

Once he realized that his joke was not taken well, though, Tyler backtracked.
“That’s your husband!” Karlie was not having it. “I was going to Paris. That was your challenge here,” she fired back. “Keep it to the challenge.”
“I know, I know. I can see you wearing it at some point!” Neasloney defended.
“You may not know, but I know,” Kloss stated. “I know that this is not what I asked for. The fabrics are poor choices; I think they look cheap. The pockets are kind of ill-placed. And if this is your aesthetic then that’s that, but this was about my aesthetic and the influence of my stylist. You really missed the mark here on all accounts.”
Once backstage, one of the contestants approached Tyler to give him a hug. “Babe,” she sighed. “Ooof, rough.”
“It did not come out how I meant it,” he explained, taking a seat on one of the couches. “Not how I meant it. Sorry, Karlie.”
Once he and the others were brought back out onto the runway, Karlie announced that Tyler was in the bottom three, then revealed the judges had voted to send him home.
“Thank you for being here,” Karlie said as she stood up to give Tyler a kiss on the cheek, which she does with all eliminated contestants. “Can I?” he began to say, as Karlie cut him off, “You can say anything you like.”
“Karlie, I want you to know that I’m not a jerk,” he said. “I’m professional, so what I said earlier had no hidden agenda, no meaning, nothing like that.” She smiled and thanked Tyler for his apology.
Of course, Karlie could avoid all criticism if she just never married into the family of billionaire slumlords who are handmaidens to Trump. But whatever.
