Okay, Gordana. Very shrewd. You knew we were going to rip this week's entry to shreds so what did you do? You sent us a very sweet email. Clever girl.
But we're still going to rip this dress.
Honestly, (and we feel a little bad saying this now) we were wondering what the hell her problem was this week. She had immunity, the only time in the competition when you shouldn't be stressed out, and she was stressing out like crazy. We tend to think she's not cut out for a competition like this, but she's still in the game, so she must be doing something right.
Unfortunately, she didn't do anything right with this look.
Everything from concept to execution was an auf'able offense. First, why did she make what's clearly a red carpet type dress?
Second, dear God, what is going on with those cups?
And third, what is going on with, oh, let's say...EVERYTHING ELSE? Seriously, we're sorry to hear she was sick, but she's damn lucky she had immunity because this was a clear automatic auf. Even Shirin's dress was better than this.
Nicolas: "Irina is actually a really good designer. The only problem with her is that she's a bitch."
We know most of y'all hate her but we find her the one bright spot this season. Come on, we all know it's been pretty boring so we're thankful that SOMEONE decided to step up and be the bad guy. Where would Project Runway be without a little smack-talking?
Besides, at least she can back it up with solid work. Don't get us wrong, this was far from a winning look, but it was still a pretty decent effort.
Let's get to the criticism first: why she decided a coat was a good idea for stagewear, we'll never know. Sure, it gives her the option of a reveal, but the coat is so plain.
And the design is only so-so. It's well-made and appropriately body-baring and glittery, but it deserved its middle of the road status.
Still, unlike a lot of the other entries, it at least looked like something you'd see on stage. Unfortunately, that stage would be a soundstage on the MGM lot in 1942 and the wearer would be "chorus girl #17," tap-tap-tapping her heart out with 40 other girls in the same outfit.
