Hi - First post
Well, I can see I'm alone in my principles on several points - lol! - but here we go...
OK, not totally alone. I seriously disliked Angela's mom. I thought she was a whiney, annoying woman just like Angela. I though Jeffery started out trying to talk to her and then things escalated. It's highly unfortunate that he called her out of her name in his interview, and I would say that he does have the Santino trait of lashing out like an injured animal when he feels disrespected. So I'm not giving him a pass, but I am saying I thought that one was a two-way street.Jeffrey was not as bad as he was made out to be.
True, he did not "blow sunshine up her a**", but was very matter-of-fact.
I think both parties were not putting their best foot forward. I feel like Angela's mom is someone who may get her feelings hurt easily and does not feel good about her body image. I feel like Jeffrey does not always take others feelings into account when he speaks and sometimes lashes out too strongly when he feels he has been treated with disrespect.
Vincent... I didn't like the dress per se, but it was a real garment, much like the Miss Universe dress he made (which was a real dress underneath whatever that was he did to the shoulders). I started thinking this last week, and I'm going to go ahead and call shenanigans on Vinsanity. I think he really can do better than he has been doing but I think that somewhere in his mind he decided upon the "strategy" of playing the Crazy Guy Character on the show. The clothes on his website are normal, wearable clothes. The dress he did today I thought was dull, but it was a normal dress. The CrAzY GuY thing is all types of annoying, but so far it's worked...
Uli was robbed, however. I could not disagree with Closet Fan more (no disrespect, of course). I LOVE prints and I almost ALWAYS wear printed tops, and they look FABULOUS on me. A lot of us big girls aren't trying to hide and like flowing fabrics and bold prints. So far I would wear every single thing Uli has made. And it was clear Kayne's mom loved it too.
Michael this week - eh. I've never liked shirtdresses and I thought that it actually aged his model.
Robert. Robert Robert Robert.... I knew that if he did another boring outfit he was out. And since I DO love prints, I thought the same thing the judges did. When he said he was going to do a Kimono style top, I just KNEW he was going to use some gorgeous print. Instead... yeah. HOWEVER I loved that all of the other designers loved him and I feel he got the sendoff he deserved. I really dug Robert. I don't think he was boring at all. He was smart and funny and he will be missed on the show for sure.
I like this board a lot.
