|Make it shorter! And twirly!|
This was (obviously) the regular people challenge. Not only that, these are people going through a makeover. What an opportunity to change someone's life with fashion!
Since I've jumped ship from Team Ven, immediately I had high hopes for Dmitry, Melissa, and Sonjia. I felt like they've been growing on me the most. As the episode progressed, I just couldn't tell who was winning or losing... I feel like Nathan, Alicia, and Fabio are at the bottom of the totem pole, with possibly Gunnar as another weak link. But no matter how closely I watched, all the would tape was the personal interactions, not the construction, so until the runway I couldn't tell who I liked!
Melissa, Dmitry, Sonjia (cough, Forever 21), Elena... boring. And I just don't feel like anyone understood proper lengths for skirts in the real world. Nathan's dress was overly sexy, but it is better than what his client wanted. That redeems it a little. I didn't like Gunnar's either, but his client was working it! Alicia's look ended up alright. It would have still been sexy if the skirt was longer like a pencil look. Also, why are the designers using such washed out colors?
I liked Christopher's look! The dress, not the jacket. I'd wear it. I was also surprised by Fabio! I would totally want that dress, in a shorter length or tighter silhouette.
Ven's look sucked. I mean, why couldn't he do a larger version of what he did for Kenley? She would have rocked it! Curvy girls give you an opportunity that regular models don't. The top he made only enhanced her large bust and wide shoulders.
Sigh, I know, I'm all over the place on this one. I was so underwhelmed in general by this runway. I hoped Fabio would win, because I didn't like Gunnar or Dmitry's looks.
I agree with the judges that Fabio (dark horse!) should win, and Nathan should leave over Ven and Sonjia, but I think Ven needed a reality check.
P.S. I want to steal Heidi's striped dress from the runway!
P.P.S. Are visible metal zippers "in" right now?
