I think my issue with the babydoll dress is mainly the color. If it had been, for example, chocolate brown, it'd have been much better.
The man can certainly tailor; but if he is so arrogant in thinking that he is going to win every challenge (and be a sore loser if he isn't) then obviously he is not going to win many fans.
I don't know if he really is the Wendy Pepper of this season -- I was merely quoting what other contestants said. But to be fair, even Michael Kors said Wendy Pepper could tailor -- it didn't necessairly mean she was a good designer. So just because Santino can tailor, doesn't mean he's a good designer either. I will reserve my judgements until I see more of his work. Having said that, it's entirely possible the guys meant Santino is the uberbiatch of this season -- talent doesn't really have anything to do with it. If Wendy was evil and talented, I doubt she'd be hated any less.
