Was ATL gay’s dress too ‘vulgar’ for Tim Gunn?

If you blinked, you might have missed – again – gay Atlanta’s own Nicholas Komor on Thursday’s episode of Lifetime’s “Project Runway” spinoff “Under the Gunn.” Perhaps the designer's mentoring session offers a clue as to why his screentime was lacking.

To us, the fringey number that Komor ends up with is sassy and flapper-y, not slutty. But mentor Anya Ayoung-Chee is reticent about his vision for the first real challenge in front of the judges.

“The bathing suit, or anything in that zone, just screams vulgarity,” she says. “No one’s going to look at anything else. I would hesitate to let that be your first voice.”

Shut up, Anya, and it won't be the last time we say it. To his credit, Komor goes for it anyway, and to hers, Anya admits she's wrong in the end. Unlike his more highlighted runway stomp last week, Komor is declared safe and whisked from view. Womp womp.

Check out all of our hometown boy’s best moments in the clip video above. And keep watching “Under the Gunn” on Thursdays, either at home or at East Atlanta gay bar Mary’s, Komor’s watch party headquarters for the show. Cheers to local fans getting more of him in the coming weeks.
