1. If you want your collection to appear ‘cohesive’ make it all the same color. (Is it too much to ask for something more than aqua, white, and beige?)
2. Don’t mouth off to Tim Gunn, because he just might be your guest judge after all. (I really do think he was impartial, though.)
3. Weird leafy things in your hair are distracting.
I’m sad, but I’m not surprised. I knew a lot of people were singing Leanne’s praises after the show, and I was prepared for it. But I still think Korto’s was better. Her colors were stunning, it wasn’t the same thing over and over, and the only complaint I would have is that some of them were shockingly short. I thought the whole thing was gorgeous.
Leanne’s was just noodle after noodle in the same two colors. There was one skirt that looked like balloons were under the hips? I guess this makes me a fashion loser. I am OK with that. I just kept thinking “those are the most high maintenance clothes - the thought of ironing those makes me vomit.” (the fact that I don’t iron might have something to do with this). And then when she tried to steam the one outfit and it expanded two sizes - suspicions confirmed. Those would be difficult clothes to own. But high fashion isn’t about regular people owning them, I know that. I don’t know why, though. Shouldn’t it be about that on some level?
Kenley’s was meh. The hand painted thing was cool. It looked like stuff she had already done in the challenges. The floral print with the growth thing, she won for that, so she brought it back, even though that’s the one the judges said was a knockoff. She had a couple of fifties stuff of course, and I am having a hard time getting past the leaves in her hair. What was that?
I might be done with this show. I don’t know. I am just a fashion loser enough that my favorites don’t win - I wanted Laura, not Jeffrey. I liked Christian, though, and really thought he would win, even though I liked Rami. I was pulling for Korto. It’s getting exhausting. We’ll see what the network switch does….
Top Chef next month! I can’t wait!!!!
