Honestly, we thought this was the oddest pairing out of all of them and yet...
The bitches made it work.
We could quibble over how beachy this look is (hint: not at all), but it really was a cute, chic, easy look. In fact, it kind of calls to mind what Mitchell's maternity outfit SHOULD have been if he'd been more talented.
What keeps it in beach mode is the macramé bathing suit and from the back, we have to agree with the judges, it was gorgeous and unique.
Although it does look a little like those potholders we made in summer camp in the '70s.
Still, it was stylish and simple and really, that's all the challenge called for.
As so many commenters have already pointed out, there was a bit too much to remind us of Christian Siriano's and Chris March's avant garde look from season 4. Namely, the big asymmetrical collar.
Aside from that, there was just too much of everything with this dress, which for some reason, is how a lot of these designers envisioned avant garde: just turn the dials up to 11 and call it a day.
And why was there so much shit brown on that runway?
Yes, the woven bodice was kindasorta interesting and we'll give them credit for tying their two looks together (asymmetrical, brown, macramé), but this just looks like an overdone party dress. Interesting, but a little too sloppy and not avant garde in any real way.
They deserved what praise they got however, and Johnny must be singled out for making sure that the judges knew how invaluable Irina was to the team. Good job, kids.
Don't worry. We'll get to Mad Men soon. In the mean time, go read this week's T Lo Awards.
