Scratch that. Blame her.
Look, she seems like a nice enough girl and there's just enough raw talent there that she could actually make a go of it in this industry. As Tim told her when he was shoving her out the door, she should be proud of how far she made it considering how little in the way of training and experience she has.
When we agreed that she needed to go, it wasn't because she pissed us off or anything. It's just that it was obvious to us that she'd gone as far as she could in this competition. She was churning out some very similar looks each week and she had a clear and obvious lack of technique.
This was not a horrible outfit by any stretch of the imagination. We loved the soft iciness of the colors; loved that detail at the neck line; loved the vest and the shorts. But it's so obviously not a covergirl outfit. Not even close. We could see Heidi wearing this walking down the street somewhere with her husband and their 16 children tagging along. A sunglasses and shopping kind of look, not a cover look.
She seems sweet, but she's too much in her own head and this outfit reflects a certain mechanical approach to her designs. She's not putting out pieces that have a lot of personality to them.
One more thing about the judging: they praised these shorts, and from a design perspective, they are pretty cute. But they so obviously didn't fit her properly (hello, insane crotch). That's one thing we've noticed about the judging this season. We don't know if Nina has consciously toned herself down or not, but she's letting an awful lot of things she would have criticized mightily in previous seasons pass by without comment, specifically fit and execution.
