Patrick & Roberto
But first, a correction, because we are so very ethical here at T Lo Communications International. We had been informed through various sources that Roberto had designed the dress Carrie Underwood wore to perform at the AMAs; the dress that was shockingly similar to one of the dresses from Carol Hannah's finale collection for Project Runway. Well, we heard straight from the horse's
There. Consider yourself informed. Moving right along...
We're all for CHDQs who know how to maximize their camera time. Despite all the crying of "I don't watch these shows for DRAMA!" the fact of the matter is, when there isn't any drama (see: PR seasons 4 and 6), the general consensus among the viewership is that the season is boring.
So, fine. Yay for the CHDQs, we say. Only, there's the right way to do it and the wrong way to do it, and Roberto here is definitely doing it the wrong way. For one, it's way too obvious. He might as well wear a sign around his neck that says, "NOTICE ME!!!!!" For another, he's just coming across as an asshole, plain and simple.
And for all the drama...
This team once again produced an ugly and unflattering look.
Not to mention that it barely looks sewn at all.
We'll give them credit for this, though: they do have an interesting sense of color and print, although we'd like to see them both get away from purple.
Kevin & Akiko
What to say about these two? She seems like a doormat half the time and he somehow got the idea in his head that fashion design is akin to cage fighting. To her we say, "Stand up, girl!" and to him we say, "Tone it down, buddy. It's a dress, not warfare."
Yikes. We barely recognized Amanda here in her "hooker secretary" getup. Why is it that those who provide the most drama almost always produce the worst garments?
It's a rhetorical question, of course. They provide all the drama because deep down they know their output is not up to par with other contestants'. Call it The Pepper Factor.
Tacky, ugly, unflattering.
Louanna & Jim
Even though we thought last week's winning garment was way over-praised, these two comprise another team that bears watching. She has taste and he has skills and let's face it, that's all you need to win this contest.
We're not super-crazy about the fabric picked for the sarong, but the swimsuit is pretty hot.
Although it would leave some very strange tan lines.
Marilyn & Coco
More drama for your mama. Quick psychoanalysis: Marilyn is a control freak and Coco is passive-aggressive.
We enjoy reality show drama in many forms, but we cannot abide the "I'm tired" excuse. You tried out for this show and unlike the (probable) hundreds of other tryouts, you got picked to be on it. Suck it up and quitcher bitchin'.
We still think kimonos make for strange beach attire, but as designs go, this isn't terrible.
What's terrible are the fabric choices. That lining is a little on the tacky side, but it might have worked if it hadn't been paired with that satin-y yellow.
Seriously, who wears shiny fabrics to the beach?
