She seemed like a contender going into it. She had the confidence and the personal style at least. She was going on and on about her taste and her skills, so we were all set to see something impressive come off her dress form.
That's one way to impress us.
Just about everything that could be wrong about a look is wrong with this look, from styling to fabric choice to execution.
Let's start at the top: hair and makeup. If she was trying to make her teenage model in 2009 look like a middle-aged woman in 1950, mission accomplished.
And while we always love seeing color on the runway, there are good colors and bad colors. We could be talked into the idea that maybe on their own, these fabric choices wouldn't be horrible (okay, maybe not so much on the shiny blue), but putting them together does terrible things to them.
Our advice would have been to maximize the use of that print, which does have potential to make a nice dress if it's used correctly, and minimize the use of that blue. In fact, we would have advised against the blue at all because it's so matchy. And shiny. And just...well...blue. Really, really blue.
As for all that draping and twisting, she had too much of it for one dress and as Michael pointed out, she made the weird choice to have each element sewn into the seams, which had kind of a weird effect.
And she gave us quite the titscrepancy to boot. Her boobs look like they're having an argument.
The worst sin of all, the whole thing simply wasn't finished well. It always amazes us how often the contestants on this show will go straight for the shiny, knowing how unforgiving it is of the slightest technical flaws.
It's possible she's as good as she says and she simply went off in too many directions faced with the crazy pace and the cameras. It happens. Even so, it's an auf'ing that made perfect sense to us.
