General consensus among the commenters holds that Christopher was robbed out of the win. We can't say we agree.
Don't get us wrong, it's a great look. He said he wanted a show stopper and he succeeded.
But from where we're sitting, it's just not all that impressive from a technical standpoint, at least not compared to the other two looks in the top three.
From a design perspective, it's a pretty basic look and something that Christopher seems to return to again and again: structured on top, frilly on the bottom.
But what sets it firmly in runner-up status is the fact that the bottom of the dress, the part that's supposed to really wow us, is a basic muslin skirt with a lot of paper leaves attached to it.
Sure, it moved beautifully (and let's not overlook Katie's contribution - she sashayed like her life depended on it) and it was appropriately dramatic. We're not saying it wasn't a great look.
We just think that when you stack it up against Althea and Irina, both of whom offered much more structured garments made entirely out of paper, it doesn't impress us as much.
And speaking of Althea...
Darlings, is there anything more delicious than two prom queens who hate each other? We hope all this angst results in a hair-pulling contest, forcing Tim Gunn to burst into the room Mrs. Garrett-style, yelling "Girls! Girls! You're BOTH pretty!"
It's not just the fact that it's so structured and that she basically made her own print that makes it so impressive.
It's the fact that it's so form-fitting - and perfectly fitted, to boot. It completely hugs every inch of Tanisha. That was a major risk to take because it increased the likelihood of rippage.
We still stand by the Irina win because it was clever and well done and off the beaten path, but this was a really close second for us.
And most impressive of all, it was a really stylish, chic look. Way to go, Blair. Maybe you can kick Jo's ass next time.
