Episode notes: I didn’t see any outfits that I absolutely loved. It’s appalling that in the last runway show before the finale this is all the designers have to offer. I’m really not impressed by the cast. There isn’t a Mondo Guerra or Daniel Vosovic among them. This will be a season I probably won’t remember in the future who the winner was.
Anya: Two of her three outfits (the white and black one) look to me like they’re on backward. The neckline in front goes up too high. The fit of the white dress was atrocious, with errors everywhere, and the black dress looks like a knockoff of her raven dress from last week. The red dress is ok but nothing to get excited over.
Joshua: On the runway, I really liked his drapey gown and white minidress. However, I agree with the judge who said the silver throw should have been lined to make it more substantial and more part of the gown. As it is, it looks like the model was wearing a short black dress for a casual look, then before going to a party, grabbed her silver Snuggie in case it was cold at the event. I didn’t like the red top on his third outfit but appreciated it better after hearing Joshua’s explanation of it. I think it would have been better to either present the outfit without the jacket covering the studded top or to have a solid red top under the jacket, and have the studs on the jacket.
Kimberly: I don’t know why Kimberly likes bulky looking outfits but I hate them. I think most women want to cover up bulky areas on them, not add to them! The thick, heavy scarf on top of her traffic cone orange coat is atrocious and the coat itself is not form-fitting enough. The model’s waist looks as wide as her hips and shoulders. Imagine how this would look on a regular woman with more meat on her than a rail-thin model! I hate the bulging skirts on her other two outfits. Are they supposed to look windblown or what? They just look to me like the model got her skirt caught up in her underwear the last time she went to the bathroom and forgot to unhitch her skirt and smooth it down after.
Laura: I liked Laura’s circle fabric but agreed with Tim that she shouldn’t have used it on every outfit. At least she toned it down some after his comment. The judges didn’t like her top and skirt done with the circle pattern but I did. I only wish she had used a different fabric color than the same off-white she used with the circle dress. She could have dyed it to make it less matchy-matchy with her circle gown. The third look has nothing to do with the other two and it’s fugly. The tight patterns and high contrast of the other two looks makes this outfit look dowdy and shapeless in comparison.
Viktor: Oh, no. Viktor is catching Kimberly’s bulkyskirtitis! The swoop of fabric in his secretary look is just as crappy as when Kim uses it. I liked the black dress on the runway but that’s because the shadows hid the odd shelf overhang on the top of the skirt. She’s like a futuristic waitress with her drink platter built into her dress so she can rest the drinks she’s serving on it. The third look is something we’ve already seen before this season. That same scrawny jacket type thing has appeared on at least three outfits. Been there-done that.
I’m not going to bother ranking the fashion disasters this week. Very few were any good.
