Not everybody can wear what you wear."
And she shut up.
Seemed to me then that Michael wasn't exactly on board for Christian's line, at that point, and was putting Victoria --- nicely and respectfully --- in her place. Everybody CAN'T wear what she wears . . . moneywise, OR figurewise.
While I don't believe Victoria held a lot of merit as a guest judge in choosing a winner (even though she DOES have her own line, I think), if the guest judge had been, say, Roberto Cavalli or Alberta Ferretti, I might be inclined to see things differently, in this case.
I mean let's face it . . . Both of THEM have been around a long, long, long time as actual working fashion designers. And Michael Kors has been around for a second or two, also.
Then we have Chris being dinged earlier throughout the season for his work (and collection) being too costumey a lot of times (even though Nina did say that some costumers HAD gone on to become fashion designers). But Christian's kind of same-church-different-pew costumey line being given the win over either Jillian's or Rami's, apparently out of the blue?
Who turned out the lights?
JMHO, but yeah, in this particular instance --- even though Christian's line was one of the best ever on PR; he is talented and I DO wish him luck --- I do think that the regular judges did allow themselves to be swayed by the tastes of the celebrity eye candy judge on board for this particular show.
Whether or not they realize it or would actually admit it even if they did.
And yes, I do know that none of us got to see ALL of the final deliberation amongst the judges so we could actually see how they came to the conclusion they did.
