First of all, I did not watch this week's episode. I said last week that I was sick of the drama, and I meant it. Judging from the comments here, I didn't miss much.
I'm from Texas, so please, please don't insult our fine cowgirls by comparing them to this outfit. Otherwise, I'm going to have to lasso you and leave you out in the ring when the bulls come.Anthony: His model looks like the queen of the rodeo. This little lady won a blue ribbon in barrel racing and is going to give a kiss and a trophy to the winner of the bullriding contest. Yahoo!
I was wondering what that blouse reminded me of.Bryce: His model looks like a student on Spring break wandered into the studio by accident, thinking it was some sort of club. She wanted Sex on the Beach but got a spot in a runway show instead!
I had more problems with the jacket. This received a ton of judges' praise? I guess we Texans just ain't hip and happenin', 'cause around here the only place a woman would dress like that would be the red light district.Olivier: As wonderful as the jacket is, it makes the pants look cheap in comparison. The pants look like pajama bottoms to me, as though this lady executive, at the end of a long hard day at work, came home and changed out of business slacks, slipped on pajamas, but left the jacket on so she could change into a short skirt later and go clubbing.
So did I. Hands down the best. He wuz robbed.Viktor: This was my favorite outfit this week. Itís so versatile! It would be appropriate for a casual outing or a formal occasion. The color and shape of the dress make it slimming where it should be and curvy in all the right places. Love it!
Or the moths in the attic have chewed it away.Becky: Oh, look. Another Spring breaker. She must be with Bryceís model. They probably got split up when Beckyís model ran back to her car to get her sweater in case it was cold in the club. Looks like itís an old sweater. Sheís worn holes in the elbows.
I'm sad to see Becky go before Josh, because of the lousy way he treated her. Sadly, though, I can see why based on this outfit. I thought Kimberly was the worst, but Becky and Laura were very close behind. Becky's model looks like a teenager who put on her mother's blouse and her grandmother's sweater.
The mismatched cog on the back looked a little jarring. I can also see why the judges criticized the zipper. What was up that? It looks like her dress got caught on something and tore. And I also agree that the boots look too clunky with that dress. Other than that, the dress was fine.Bert: This was my second favorite outfit. I donít know what the judges were talking about the length being odd and the zipper in the front being a mistake. I really like it! I think Iíd wear different shoes with it than these combat boots but other than that, I find nothing wrong with it.
His outfit looks like somebody rummaged through the scrap bin at Mood and threw something together from what they randomly selected. Terrible.Joshua: I see what Joshua was trying to do, making the jacket like the cogs of a clock meeting up, but it didnít come together as a cohesive look. Adding the blue shirt underneath the mismatched jacket made it look even more disjointed. Perhaps a bustier top paired with this outfit would have been better.
By the far the worst. Her skirt is as horrible as the trousers Burt made last week, and for the same reason.Kimberly: I absolutely loathe the skirt of this outfit. The texture doesnít fit with the other outfits presented by the team, the shape is god-awful. If you are what you eat, this model appears to eat at Taco Bell a lot. She has the bell-shaped hips to prove it! Yo quiero, Taco Bell, but the skirt? Not so muchÖ
One word: dowdy. And Josh, honey, in Texas, that ain't a good thing.Laura: I kept thinking of Blue Suede Shoes when looking at Lauraís outfit. Thatís not a good thing. This is what I envision members of a track team sponsored by a lounge in Las Vegas to wear. Instead of spending time giving advice to other designers about their outfits, Laura (and Joshua, for that matter) should have spent more time working on her own.
I was wondering the same thing. When I think "pattern," I think bold colors. Seeing all this B/W back-to-back just looked blah.Did I miss in the description of the challenge that their patterns had to be black and white? I would have preferred if somebody had done a pattern using color. Itís hard to make a black and white pattern look any different than pages from a newspaper. Frankly, I didnít like most of the patterns. The one I liked the most was the one the judges trashed the mostóthe clocks. Has time not been kind to the judges? Is that why they hated that theme so much? Maybe it was interpreted a bit too literally and the scope could have been broadened to include other timepieces but the concept was fine to me.
Another contradiction from the judges. "Hasn't every other challenge been judged on the outfits?" "Who cares?" (sigh)The way they did the judging was confusing to me. They said there wasn't going to be a team leader but when deciding who won and who was out this week, they made it seem like it was based on who best served their team, rather than whose outfit was best. In that regard, I agree that Anya should have won because she came up with the idea for their presentation video and had a lot of input in the other designs on her team. However, I don't think her outfit was the best.
