Malan was robbed! Yes, the dress was ugly, but he heroically owned his failure and certainly had the potential to do better.
It's a shame the judges couldn't have seen Angela in action in the workroom. At least Ms. USA could have said something about Angela coming to her with no sketch ("I don't do sketches." Ha!) and no ideas. She at least had that info available to put into the mix.
Furthermore, except for the "wings," which could have been modified, Vincent's dress was clean and elegant, with beautiful lines and rich color. If it wasn't "designer-y" enough for Angela, I would like to know what she wanted to see. Maybe green "socks" à la Guadalupe's Nicky Hilton dress?
