It’s A Brad, Brad World Season Finale: Gary’s Big Surprise!
Last night saw the season finale of It’s A Brad, Brad World and it was a watershed moment, as in this episode, Brad Goreski finally, finally admits he’s made it! This week he styled a very pregnant Jessica Alba for the Spy Kids 4 premiere, and did a shoot for J. Brand with Lindsay as his styling assistant. Jessica looked beautiful at the premiere, Lindsay didn’t screw anything up at the shoot, and J. Brand loved Brad and told him they would like to have him back. He did make their clothes look pretty great; now I want ALL the bright-colored cigarette pants for spring! Toward the end of the episode, Brad’s team informed him that Kate Spade wanted to form a partnership with him and take him on as a stylist for the brand. Hopefully we can finally put an end to his “struggling stylist” storyline.
This was all very exciting, but the best part of the episode was obviously Brad and Gary Janetti’s anniversary party. Brad’s involvement in the party planning was mostly limited to making Gary uncomfortable on purpose. While on a coffee date, he casually dropped: “I would hate if it rained on our wedding.” That was followed by with: “Are you working on your vows? …Are you going to say your vows before or after you lift my veil and give me a kiss?”
“Please don’t make me kiss you in front of everyone,” Gary begged him. He found this entire process to be “disturbingly life-consuming,” probably because of a mysterious surprise he spent most of the episode planning.
The day of the party arrived, and Steven the event planner made Gary have a cocktail to calm down before the first guests arrived. Brad’s mom and sister and Gary’s parents were among the first to show up, and we got a quick update on Brad’s relationship with his dad (still not very good, but his sister thinks he should stay optimistic about repairing their relationship). There was a parade of Brad and Gary’s celebrity friends, including Shay Mitchell, Megan Mullaly and Nick Offerman. The greatest moment of the episode was undoubtedly Gary’s surprise for Brad, which turned out to be a flash mob of friends, family, and coworkers serenading him with Les Misérables’ “One Day More.” Brad was delighted, the rest of the partygoers were delighted, I was delighted. It was a great way to end the season.
So, that’s that! Hopefully Brad and co. (especially Gary, we need so much more Gary) will return for a second season. When the show wasn’t preoccupied with Brad’s perceived need to hustle, it was much more fun and frothy and fun television than his former boss’s show. Plus, if there’s another season, maybe poor Jasper can finally have his moment in the spotlight. Until that happens, you can content yourself with watching “One Day More” over and over below, via Bravo:
