TFS: The Runners Up

Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.


Our hearts went out to Angel when they picked this fugly thing for her.

In fact, her reaction to it mirrored our own. Of course, our sympathy only went so far because SHE WAS IN BERGDORF'S SHOE DEPARTMENT AND COULDN'T PICK OUT A SHOE.

HELLO?

Still whatever doubts we had evaporated when she turned out this fun little take on the classic white shirt dress.

Sure, it's not a dress for everyone or every occasion, but it was cute and inventive and it had a nice silhouette to it.

Not to mention some nice detailing. To be honest, she could have gone without that contrasting fabric. Should have all been crisp and white.

Our only real criticism is that she perhaps overthought it a bit much. She really didn't need to get all gimmicky and make two shirts that could be taken apart. No one cares, honey. Just make it look like it's two shirts sewn together to make a dress.

Still, a great entry. We didn't know she had it in her.

Fabulous shoes.

Okay dress.
It feels like she had a great concept and starting point and just sort of lost it in the details.

We love the bodice. She did fantastic work designing and executing it.

Ditto on the back.

And here's where it all kind of falls apart for us. We just don't love the way the black portion just sort of ends. It's like she couldn't figure out a way to marry the flimsy sheer fabric with the heavy leather-like fabric.

That neckline ain't all that great either. And we weren't fans of the washers sewn into it.

This was an entry that was definitely worthy of being singled out for praise, but we're happy that it didn't win.

Killa shoes.

Hideous dress.

We're in agreement with the judges on this one. She took a real chance and even though it didn't pay off, the fact that she took the chance at all is a factor in whether she's at the bottom or not.

Honestly, we have nothing to add to the judges' assessment of this look. It was horrible and we can't really look at it and suggest where improvements can be made. Rip it up and start over, that's our advice.

Yikes.

Even though we felt she should stay, she's seriously going to have to prove herself because any designer who didn't stop and take a good look at THAT during the process... well, there are bound to be questions, that's all.

Get your shit together, tiny dancer.

Did Lidia's model have the worst walk or what? She made a bad situation even worse. I think she was part of the reason for the Corpse Bride comparison- she walked like a stop-motion character.

I thought I liked Danielle's dress, but upon closer inspection it doesn't do much for me.


I don't remember if it was Corpse Bride or Nightmare Before Christmas- but y'all know what I mean!


Angel's design was innovative, wearable, and adorable. I'm wondering if they are making decisions based on whether or not the clothes can be manufactured. Reco's dress was inferior to Angel's but was it easier to fabricate?


Lydia's dress looked like the model had stood still for too long and mold had started to grow on her north side.

Daniella's dress made me think of how much I miss Leathuh Stella.

And Angel's dress was an interesting idea, but being a practical girl I thought, how the hell would you iron that thing? As for the shoes, you've got to hand it to Stella McCartney; she has a real knack for making over-priced fashion look incredibly cheap. (But I've also heard that she's really nice to her employees, so that's something).

--GothamTomato


I have no idea what you are talking about. Those Stella shoes were fabulous and a lot better than some of the boring uninspired shoes other designers chose.


Lidia's dress makes her model look hairy from far away. Creepy.

I just cannot get into the shirt dress. I think it looks sloppy. The top is very nice, but the middle just looks like she tied a shirt around her waist. And yes it is cool that it is too shirts stitched together, but anyone looking at her is just going to think she was lazy and tied a shirt around her waist. And it looks like a diaper from the back...


Danielle's dress has some really beautiful points (most of which you pointed out), but one of the problems I had with it is the length. Wasn't there something on Project Runway about the exact wrong places to put the hem of a skirt? I seem to recall you don't want the hem falling at parts of the leg that are the widest, and Danielle's dress ends right at the fattest part of the calf. If she'd shortened it a couple inches, it would have worked better.


Loved Angel's dress. I thought it should have won. But yes, why was she not able to find a single pair of shoes at Bergdorf's? Gah!


Am I alone in thinking that one of the reasons the clothes on TFS don't look as good as those on PR is that the models on TFS are just TOO BIG? I mean, look at the hips and arms on that model in the last dress. She looks like she wears a sixe 8 or a 10. She's a pretty girl with a lovely figure and god bless her for not being a skeleton, but a model's job is to make the clothes look good, and to do that, sadly, you have to be bony. Please note: I'm not saying all women should aspire to look like models (we can't and won't, no matter what we do), and I'm not advocating for starvation diets for all women, I'm just saying that there's a good reason why professional models are freakishly long & skinny: it makes the clothes look better.

Models are paid to do what they do BECAUSE they don't look like normal women. The runway is a fantasy.

The models on TFS fall short of that fantasy. The TFS models look like unusally pretty young women with normal figures, and the clothes just don't look as good on them. -victoria


I can't remember who said it ( I thin it was Johnny )but they mentioned that Lida's dress reminded them of a Bridesmaids dress something ugly that you would never wear again and he was right ahaha.

While I liked Angel's dress and would totally wear it, I didn't think it deserved as much praise as it got but that's because I know she glued on buttons, and left some parts of the dress unfinished!




"Reco's dress was inferior to Angel's but was it easier to fabricate?"

It's one thing not to like his design but in no way was Reco's dress inferior, it was the sewn to perfection and the YSL bootie inspiration was fitting was it the most inventive ...NO but that's clearly not what this show is all about. And ummm baby girl sewed two shirts together and glued buttons on and tied the sleeves around the waist that's inferior!


I liked both Daniella's and Angel's dresses, Reco's was just okay for me.
Maybe they felt that Angel's dress left too much up to the wearer, with all the buttoning and tying and drapping. I like the blue because it helps relate the dress to the shoe.
Daniella's was kinky fun. I like the washers, too. She does a nice job with the time she has, though the bend back neckline is bothersome.
I didn't hate Lidia's dress. I like Tim Burton movies and the styling of his heroines. The model did not work it at all, even the still picture it looks like she is showing it to its worse advantage.
I thought Anna's and Haven's were far worse than Andrew's entry as well. Did anybody else think the Manalo guy was super hard on Lidia. A little too mean?


"Gorgeous Things Said: But yes, why was she not able to find a single pair of shoes at Bergdorf's? Gah!"




It looked like they couldn't pick just any shoes, but had to look for the ones that had the little 'Fashion Show' tags next to them (I was wondering how many of those there were). I guess that, coupled with everyone making a mad dash, left her stumped.

--GothamTomato


I'm definitely glad that Reco won, but Angel did have an interesting outfit. Even though I think its being overly-praised.

Lidia definitely has a pattern here; she starts off with interesting ideas, but executes them horribly. That dress looks like somebody spilled something all over it.

However, she's as cute as a button, and glad she got a chance to stay. Hayekova needs to manage her time better.

As for Daniella, nice outfit, but not as hot as she claims everything she does to be. I do believe that Stella did designs for leathuh before her. Where's the recognition? Because if it were the other way around...


ugh the last model looked pregnant. that dress is so hideous, there are no words. if you put a gun to my head and said "wear that dress," I'd tell them to pull the trigger.


Lidia's model can't walk to save her life. It didn't help the cause. Angel's had the best design, IMO.


"Sewing Siren said...

I thought so too. It's was borderline mean-spirited.


I would wear Angel's dresshirt in a heart beat. I might even try to see if I can replicate the look : )


And I did have to do a Reco eyeroll at Angel for not being able to pick a shoe. Dude, they're SHOES!

Shoes from Berdorf's at that! (Or Bergderf, as BeNOTcye read off of her cue card.)


Daniella's dress reminded me of the saturn challenge on project runway. i think it kind of looked like the bodice of the dress that leanne made.


As far as Isaac picking her shoe, I wonder if there were a limited number of shoes, because didn't the shoes selected have to be tagged or something? So in the time alloted she may not have found a tagged shoe that inspired her. Isaac was prepared for it, so they probably had only tagged a few more shoes than they had designers.

I think Madame MB was lobbying for the package with his name brand on it.


For the dress as well.

And thanks for mentioning Haven Sugarbaker. How could they let that glued-up and tacked on ball of fug pass was beyond me.


"This was an entry that was definitely worthy of being singled out for praise, but we're happy that it didn't win."

How much would you bet that Daniella is rolling her eyes and calling you stupid for this comment?


GothamTomato: I noticed the same thing regarding the 'pick a show with the Fashion Show tag'. I really couldn't see how many of the shoes were actually marked.

I mean she still should have grabbed something but it sounds like it was a harder task than 'Here are thousands of shoes, pick one'

I thought Angel's dress was cute - I admired the design because in no way could you describe the concept to me and have me think "oh, cute dress." And yet it was - and I think the contrasting color helped convey shape.

That said, I can't imagine buying it, as I can't imagine it ever looking like more than a rumpled mess after half an hour's wearing, no matter how beautifully ironed.

I liked Daniella's more than TLo - though it was not nearly as interesting a design as Angel's. I thought the washers added a nice touch, drawing they eye up to the face - but that might have been less necessary if the junction of black leather-ish and plum fabrics had been more finished looking. GT is right - Stella would've done it better.

Poor Lidia. I'm glad she's getting another shot, because that was an intriguing sketch turned into a train wreck as executed.


Angel definitely had the best dress, but I guess we're going to have to settle for a)what can be easily manufactured b) what fits everyone every single challenge.


I didn't like Daniella's dress at all. How is a strapless dress over illusion netting "fashion forward"? Didn't I see Sasha Cohen wearing this at the last Winter Olympics? I guess the new part was the grommet dandruff on the shoulders. Meep.

I only liked Angel's. I wanted to love it! Coulda, woulda, shoulda if it didn't look so sloppy on the bottom. It just looked like a wadded sheets around her waist. And I didn't get the blue. And it would look even worse if I tried to wear it, like some Penthouse forum story about me and a certain salesman at Jos. A. Banks.

Lidia's dress looks like rampant chesthair. I was intrigued until I saw that. Still, it was more adventurous than a lot of the outfits that paraded by.


Angel should produce a version of that dress and sell it on her website.


" Anonymous said...

Surely the agency is not sending their top models. Most of them are terrible walkers.


I would like Angel's dress much, much more if it were better executed. If there was a way to wrap the second shirt around so that the arms made a clean waistband or something, and then button it up the front, it would be cuter and much more flattering. As it is, I agree with above posters that it looks sloppy from the waist down. If you have hips and ass of any kind, you will look huge.

Looking at these two again, I agree even more with Reco's win. As much as I like Daniella's, it was just a bit off somehow. Even though the silhouette is a bit derivative, it works really well with the modern feel of the boots and eyepiece. I can easily see Rihanna rocking that look in its entirety.


Sewing Siren, thanks for explaining. Mosquito tent -- hah!


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

Boys, I agree with your take on Lidia's dress. There's just not much more to pick apart about that much fug.

I was disappointed by my little Russian dumpling last week, but hopefully this little foray into the bottom two has scared her into reigning in her ambition a bit and focusing on her execution. Step it up devushka, cause it's not often that TLo say you should have just started all over!

I was a little surprised at the praise of Daniella's dress. With your screencaps I can see the details, but metal washers? I'd just as soon see a punkish use of safety pins. But after Johnny Samurai's using them to hold his last look together, maybe Daniella thought it best to steer clear of all that.

Can't wait for the next batch!


I think everything Daniella designs is a bit matronly, like an old lady trying to hard to show a little bit of skin or be sexy. Merlin was right, she's a 23 old woman, channeling 40.


And I forgot to mention, she loves sheer fabrics, another old lady's trend.


I still think Lidia's model had trouble walking because of the dress. I think the dress was held together with spit and tape and the poor model had to be extremely careful.

Lidia seems charming, but I get the feeling her idea of elegance and sophistication is baroque and rococo all rolled up into one, like one of those wedding rental halls you see advertised on tv. I was pleasantly surprised by the simplicity of the blue coat, but other than that, everything she's done has been too much.

I thought Daniella's dress looked great and I liked the washers. But what I couldn't see until I saw the close up pictures (thanks, TLo) was indeed the problem of where heavy fabric meets light. I think if she hadn't used pleather it might have worked a little better.


I am just not feeling Daniella's clothes. As well made as they are, they always look a little cheap and tacky to me.

I would like Angel's except she made it too complicated. She needed some serious editing to make it as cute as it could have been.


CanIGetYouAnything?

Just the fact that Angel made two shirts in such a short period of time, I'm impressed. I forgive her for gluing the bottoms. Great concept, fun, fresh design. In my book, you are the winner of this challenge, Angel, darling.

Re GothamTomato's comment about mold on the north side of Lidia's dress: Brilliant! Also hilarious.

Re B Rye's comment on the Stella McC shoes: I agree. I loved those shoes! And when paired with Angel's white-and-blue dress, the overall look was fabulous. It was like something Ralph Lauren would come up with if he designed for anyone now except people who still think "preppy" is high style. Great job, Angel!

The Manolo guy? If he had said "adore" just one more time, I was ready to beat him senseless with Jonathan Adler! Do you have to act like a gigantic gay stereotype...from the 19-freakin'-50s? Really? Do you?

Oh--and put some socks on! (See "preppy" comment, above.) Between that guy and Fern, who looked as frumpy as is humanly possible, the judges' panel did not look like people who should be judging anyone else's clothes.


I am very hard pressed to believe that some of these models are, in fact, professionals. NY Model Mgmt is doing its reputation no favors here.

Still loved the impact of Angel's dress the most and, complicated or not to assemble, I'd be willing to give it a go.

Beneath that tulle or netting or whatever, Lidia's dress was not horrible or horribly constructed. Maybe that's what saved her. That and the fact that Isaac and Mr. Blahnik were finally working out the anger they had been saving up since that one bad weekend on Fire Island in 1984.


Daniella's dress made me want to cry.

Angel did a great job, but I couldn't understand how she could fail to pick a pair of shoes! They must have done something just to stick someone with the Stella McCartney heels of crap.


I think Lidia's dress was partly to blame for her model looking "big."

Also, between the too-tight skirt and the shoes, the girl could not walk right. Those ultra-high-heel shoes with tiny little straps are hard to walk in because your foot moves around so much in them. It's easy for your foot to slide off the side. That said, a model's job is to walk in those kind of shoes.

Daniela's dress was uncanny in how well it went with the shoes without mimicking them. I liked it except for the illusion in the front. All the beautiful darting or pleating or whatever really tied in with the shoes. Reco's also went beautifully with the shoes.

Angel's dress was nice but looked kind of weird from the back. Still, I've thought she has potential. Some of her designs have been good as well as some of the clothes she wears.

Lidia needs to go balls to the wall with her baroque-rococo sensibility. All out "Nightmare Before Christmas" would have been great and made a real design statement. If that is her aesthetic, she should embrace it 110%. Still, hers and Andrew's dresses were not the worst. I think part of Andrew's elimination was that his design did not relate to the shoes one iota.

It's one thing not to like his design but in no way was Reco's dress inferior, it was the sewn to perfection and the YSL bootie inspiration was fitting was it the most inventive ...NO but that's clearly not what this show is all about. And ummm baby girl sewed two shirts together and glued buttons on and tied the sleeves around the waist that's inferior!



Thank you. Reco sewed strips together to construct the dress, so yeah, there was quite a bit of labor involved.

And screw what that bitch Daniella said, I WAS impressed with the fact that he finished that quickly.

I still don't get all of the gushing over Angel's dress. Yes, it looked nice, but it was still just two shirts with glued-on buttons.


Something doesn't have to be overly complicated to be innovative. Even though Angel's dress is two shirts sewn together, it has a nice shape to it and the fabric selection is quite nice. A lot of women would look great and fashionable wearing it. Perfect summer dress.

Reco's dress was good too, but the silhouette did remind me of Baleciaga as TLo said, and I barely follow fashion. The shape just seemed done recently.

I just thought Angel's dress was cuter and more clever.

Daniella's dress was nice, but it did have issue with the combination of the two fabrics. I liked her description too. The eggplant color does add to the moodiness of the dress. The girl has a lot of talent, she just needs more experience.


I was surprised that the glued on buttons got to the top, but it was a nice dress, neat concept.

Poor Lidia, I felt terrible for her. She's more likable than Daniella, that's for sure.

I thought Recco's ego was novel but now it's grating. I can't imagine being around it.


Every year, something manages to vex these designertestants. And this year, it's the dreaded tulle.

Yes. Nylon netting will be the downfall of many a designer. Red and black have laid them low thus far. I can't wait to see what happens with the white tulle!

I'm not sure I believe Lidia when she tells me that all the dress needed was some criss-cross ribbon stitched down the front.


Anonymous Veronica said that she found the TFS models to be a little zaftig this year.

Wait until this week's challenge!

I haven't noticed whether they are big or small. I have noticed that they come bounding out, all smiles and waving when Isaac asks for the losing designs.


"Anonymous said...

It's a lot easier to be a great sewer than it is to be a great designer. In terms of creativity and design, hers was by far way more superior than his.


Oh, and before I get attacked here, let me explain what I mean. You learn how to sew, it's a skill that you learn, and you can either be good at it or not, but you don't learn how to be a designer. You're just born to be one.


I am not sure about Angel's dress. On the one hand, it looks fresh and young (although not in the way the silly man from Manolo put it), but on the other it makes me think of an unmade bed.
Daniella's had some interesting elements too the netting etc was fug, as TLO and many others have pointed out.
Oh and whoever said Lydia's dress looked hairy read my mind.


From a design point of view, I think Lidia's had a lot more to offer than Andrew's. It was poorly executed, but you could see where she was coming from, Andrew's looked like something you could find at any discount store.


"Donny B said...
I am just not feeling Daniella's clothes. As well made as they are, they always look a little cheap and tacky to me."

Same here. I think they're tacky and matronly looking.


Either that last model is fat, pregnant, or that dress was made horribly.


Lidia's model did that dress no favors. She was absolutely horrible on the runway. I think a good model could have worked it so that Lidia wouldn't have been in the bottom two.


I'm glad Lidia got to stay, but not even Iman could have saved that dress from the bottom two - it's that badly executed.


If Lidia had the time to ruche the netting across the front panel properly, it would't have looked like hair, a poorly made prom dress or any of the other things it has been compared to here. Thanks to Tlo, I can see from the screencaps what I think she was trying to do; it had an flattering shape as a panel, and shows much more innovation than Andrew's entry did. I love her nickname "tiny ballerina." Her clothes interest me, now that we can see them for more 3 seconds. And you know the rule:

Never bore Nina (path standing in here!)


I meant "wouldn't have looked like hair."


LOVED Angel's dressshirt!!!!


"GothamTomato said...

And it looks very wrinkled. What happened?


I felt bad for Lidia. She's obviously more talented when it comes to women's wear than Andrew. I'm glad they picked him to go home.


" Sewing Siren said...

I liked both Daniella's and Angel's dresses, Reco's was just okay for me."


I don't understand why people (and the judges) were going on and on about Reco's design. It's a pleated mini-dress. BFD.


" KlausK said...

Yup, which is very sad, especially when Isaac keeps saying that it is a FASHION show, not a SALESMAN show.


I find Angel's dress really interesting, in a design student way, but I don't think I get why anyone would want it. Wouldn't it be easy enough to...I dunno, tie a shirt around your waist? then you'd have the bonus of being about to UNtie it without being half naked. The dress appeared well made, well designed, well styled...I just don't get the point.

And lord, Lydia's model was the worst walker I've seen past episode 2 of ANTM. Heavens.


Angel is selling her siamese dress over at her blog.

http://www.angelchang.com/site/diary

She's taking preorders.


May as well throw in my 3 cents. I think the posters are all spot on, including the 3 way takes on each dress. Much to be said about all of them, all correct in the criticisms. Daniella does go "old" but that works for me. Reco's, we all agree, like a jury, has been done, it just had no flaws. This is new as an opine: I thought the spokes and spider leg hat was fugly, and detracted mightily from his moment. NEVER would I wear or allow it to be worn. He got a boy scout badge for doing it, in addition to a win.

Lastly: was the Manolo guy too tough on Heather's pet? NO. It is so bad I have to turn away, I cannot look at it, it is vile. Coffin cover, yes -- something crawled up on it and died. Scarey and creepy, with or without finishing touches! I now do not like this girl, so bad was the dress. Memories!

Oh yeah - the bubble butt double shirt dress -- would look like utter f___ on almost anyone, impressed as I was by the "attempt". Quick thinkin', fell extremely short, you'd be laughed out of anywhere wearing it as it was presented. A fantasy to say otherwise.


I'm having a hard time getting over the top part of Daniella's dress, which you seem to dislike as well. There's something very much like Maria von Trapp's novitiate uniform about it.

I'm with Ally on the shirt dress. Don't get it at all. Liked Danielle's dress, I thought it looked cool with the shoes.

Shirt Dress should have won. The Stella McCartney shoes are the only thing I've ever seen of hers that I've actually liked - whaddaya know. But it certainly shows her mojo in the industry that where a contestant fails to find a shoe (in Bergdorf's? WTF?) the producers pick ... Stella McCartney. Holy cow.

The top of Daniella's dress was just yucky. But she gets props for the details in the leathuh (is that leathuh, BTW? Or an easier-to-work-with facsimile?).

Lidia's model walked like Frankenstein but even Naomi couldn't have worked out that dress.

No, darling, baby girl MADE two shirts and worked them into a dress. Now, granted that since they were all twisted up you couldn't tell whether the shirts are really well done, but making shirts is no joke, girlfriend.

The same reason why everyone here is creaming their pants over Angel's dress. It was just two shirts with glued-on buttons.

Just a matter of preference. BFD.


Fabulous dress! I'm definitely contacting Angel!!


Angel's dress was a great surprise, very young and fresh. I would wear it but I certainly can see the attraction and I understand why it won.
Reco's dress was meh. Seen it a hundred times already and black was a very boring choice. But it was very well done.
Why Danielle's dress got to the top three is something I don't understand. It's boring, old, kinda ugly and it wasn't done that well.


I think if she skipped the ass-widening pocket flaps and sent up some corset lacing, that dress could have been saved.

That model's walk did notadamnedthing to sell that dress.


Angel wuz robbed . . .


Ok folks, I thought I would refuse to watch that after the first episode, but somehow slowly but surly it got my attention. Let’s start, ether the nonsense judgment or badly staged drama or poor designers who are trapped and judged by Kelly “who”? “design expert” or just producers feeding so boring and ridiculous lines, not sure. But I have to admit it’s become somewhat of interest to me. Maybe TLo makes it interesting to have discussions in here after all, thank you TLo, I’m enjoying your posts week after week.
Here is my intake on this week’s episode, let’s start form the beginning:
The winning design & potential winning designs: Reco – it truly reminded me the coat challenge that we’ve just watched, lol am I seeing the Mickey mouse ears again, or it’s déjà vu, we just saw this hideous shape made by Haven Sugarbaker hair spray coat or he’s certainly wanna be Balenciaga form the past few seasons ago, don’t understand how this could be a fashion forward today? And his headpiece was something that we saw not that long ago from Make me a Supermodel hideous outfits. Yeah, and let’s talk about season of color, black doesn’t do that for me. I think that his flawless execution of it in comparison to the rest got it to the top. Daniella, week after week she truly annoys me, she decided to be a vegan in her dress as well, lol I don’t get how this was a top design when she used a crap of faux leather that doesn’t appeal to the eye at all. Angel’s double shirt certainty she is not inventor of this concept Comme Des Garsons experimented with this approach ages ago and also, I don’t get how the Monolo guy says complements to it he suppose to know better than anyone else being at the top design house and not noticing that Reco’s and Angel’s are copies… Angel even proud to make that copy and sells it now apparently on her own website, I wonder how Bravo allows it. Back to Sugarbaker, have anyone noticed that she is making the same pair of short shorts yet again, not to mention that Daniella made the same shorts in Tinsley challenge. Sugarbaker can you be more original this time? I guess, no.
to be continued...


part 2
James Paul or Rubik’s hideous colors dress ugly brown and the shape becomes just boring after seeing almost the same thing from him week aster week, looks like a lot as the first episode of his dress to me, it’s time for a change Rubik!
Anna, what an ugly outfit, I thought she should’ve been runner up for going home, not to mention she is certainly not the one who invented the pleats and it’s really nasty how she calls Andrew a copy cat meanwhile she tries to correct that in her uninspiring blog. Her design the choice of colors and stupid shape all did not stood up to the amazing shoes.
Andrew, not the worst one but not the favorite, the choice of colors so grandma and the shape?! I think if he would choose different colors the shape might be ok. Bye, bye Andrew, i wish he could stay a little longer, Monolo guy was just ready to make out with panty Christ, but that didn’t help him, LOL big time when LeMiz got in the middle. Tiny ballerina, I think she made the mess on purpose just to get an extra airtime, we finally saw her speaking and interacting with judges. I have to say those 2 at the bottom were definitely not the worse to me. Andrew’s was saleable at least for an average Wall Mart consumer. Although, the execution played a huge part on Lidia’s outcome, but the design esthetic was definitely there and far form boring, I guess she is not America’s Next Top Seamstress. And yes, I do think Monolo guy was way to harsh on her. Oh, LOL on Lidia’s model, no matter that the dress is the model must sell it, otherwise she should be fired, wanted to see what if Reco’s dress would be worn by her. Did anyone notice that her shoes were way too big? Oh and hate to admit it, but I read some of their blogs, and Lidia writes the details what went wrong, LOL on the shoes vs. model, it’s truly a disaster, the shoes were 2 sizes bigger. I wonder if producers just poorly staged the drama between those two. Merlyn, our chicken diva is getting so quiet lately, but not with his ugly design, who in the hell is going to wear this piece, in circus maybe? She looks like she is 9 months pregnant, lol. Not to mention the fact on his "audition" disgusting video on bravotv.com in his underwear can’t wait to see that in the next episode. Keith, the comment above was fair – simply a vagina dress, and after reading his hideous and delusional blog, makes me laugh more on this. Jonny, ok I thought this one should definitely go home, kinder garden nightmare for 5 year old… don’t even want to go further.

The top of Daniella's dress was just yucky. But she gets props for the details in the leathuh (is that leathuh, BTW? Or an easier-to-work-with facsimile?).

The juxtposition of the sheer material to the leather just looked chip in a chip way, no?

Okay Stella MacCartney's press agent. If you say so.


That mesh silhouette on the front of Lidia's dress looks kinda pubey, no?

I think its the girl. She posed for Playboy in Bulgaria.


Love Angel's dress! Congratulations, girl!!!


Come on people Angel supporters you gotta stop this! Angel’s double shirt certainty she is not an inventor of this concept, Comme Des Garsons experimented with this approach ages ago and also, I don’t get how the Manolo guy says complements to it he suppose to know better than anyone else being at the top design house and not noticing that Angel’s is a copy… Angel even proud to make that copy and sells it now apparently on her own website, I wonder how Bravo allows it.
