Lol. And that concludes the summation of what I did while reading the post

In the words MK, "what was she thinking?"

After seeing her body of work on the show, it almost makes me wonder how Loopy even got ON the show.

Lupe! That never gets old. LOL

Even the model knows it's over. She tried to work it on the runway, but she couldn't figure out how. Who can blame her?!

Later Lupe!

The sweatband on the wrist is what makes it for me.

But truly; is it really THAT much more rediculous than what Santino did? His dress was basically the same idea as Lupe's, but done by someone with OCD & delusions of grandeur. The difference was in Lupe's tragic color choice of Shit Brown, (as opposed to Santino's choice of match your eye color blue. Wrong again: To match a Hilton sister's eyes it should be red).

The only real difference between Santino's shit & Lupe's shit is the way it was sold by the 'designer'. He sold his as being the non-stinking variety, and the judges bought it.

I actually prefer this to Santino's frayed clunky mess. I agree that Lupe blew it on the awful color and the tacky styling. I think Lupe's personality put Nicky off. Lupe didn't kiss her ass like Santino did.

It looks like something Che Guevara's daughter would wear to a military prom.

Viva la Revolucion!

I actually liked the fabric, except in black not brown, and the underlying idea of the dress. If she'd just taken the "green socks" and other crap off it and lost the one red glove (WTF) it might have been halfway decent.

I have to admit...I really like the arm warmer that Lupe puts on her designs. Aside from that, it's pretty bad.

I just love you guys! I think you have a webcast of you when you are watching these episodes. It's gotta be classic!

SewingSiren said...

I love Lupe.
I am not crazy about this dress, but I think the design asthetic in all of her work is very similar to Santino's. He has been mostly praised while she has been criticized, I think it has a lot to do with what is expected of male and female designers.
It is far worse to flat out copy (Marla ) than to come up with an original idea (even an odd one) . The judges are not consistant, in the last challenge ugly trumped boring.

Lupe! With Liquor!

Lupe and Angela should go into business together: The Wickety-Whack Sisters.

It at least has a relatively sleek look from the front--but then she adds a bustle? Maybe she just couldn't resist finding a way to make use of Daniel V's discarded brown fabric.

valpal said...

I'm sorry, but all of that fabric coming out of the poor model's backside looks like either a tail (if I'm being polite) or a turd (if I'm not).

marianne said...

The "train" looks like she just lumped some fabric together and ran it under the sewing machine at random points. Blindfolded.

Miranda said...

I may be the only one, but I thought Marla's dress was much fuglier, and given the whole "you copied the damn thing verbatim from the Chloe dress" scandal, I really don't get why Lupe was booted instead of Marla.

Fnarf said...

From the stills, the front is better than it looked on the DVD. The back is, uh, worse. Nasty horrible mentally ill worse.

Cedar said...

I agree with those who Marla shoulda been booted this week. I rather like Lupe's aesthetic, and I love the textured fabric on this dress; Too bad she chose such an ugly color and added so much junk to it, losing the sleekness.

Plus, if Marla were gone, Lupe and Diana might have worked together in the next challenge, and the idea of that excites me.

kanine said...

The main difference between Santino and Lupe is that Santino can make his ugly poorly constructed over-the-top crap look like actual clothes sometimes. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for Lupe.

Anonymous said...

The only good thing about Lupe is that she gets HAMMERED in the reunion show. I can't wait for the boys to get to that little nugget of classicness

Roxy said...

Oh, happy day!

I couldn't stand her clothes or her personality.

Next, the big Z!

sewhat? said...

It's hard to believe that there could have been a garment worse than Santino's in this challenge, but there you are.

Hasta Loopy Lupe

Kyle said...

Gd, this was such a train wreck, for so many different reasons...but you seemed to have captured them all.

BrianB said...

I could never figure out what kind of party you would wear this to.

DivineQueen said...

That thing is ugly!! Who the hell would wear that to a party? A costume party, perhaps.

eric3000 said...

Ha, ha! That really says it all!

Krissy said...

I really think the bodice of this dress could have worked if she would have toned everything else down. One good thing about Lupe's work, even if it is horrible, it's never boring to look at.

Jenn said...

What the hell is her fixation with the Allen Iverson arm sleeves for her models?!?!?

Speaking of hoops, where's bigassbelle? Hey girl, did you see we just upset A&M? Yyyyyyeah!

Crow Winters said...

I really wish Lupe had stayed over Marla, just because A) I think she's more intresting (and knows more about construction) and B) COME ON Marla, you copied the damn chloe dress.

Still, though... Lupe!

Suzanne said...

I find it mind boggling that she even made it on to the show. I didn't see one redeeming garment the whole time.

hiddenzipper said...

Once again we see the judges shifting goal posts.
How does Marla stay in when she clearly copied Nicky's dress line for line out of the dossier given to the designers?
Lupe's choice of colors and the arm band are a bit off, but, I could see Nicky Hilton in the dress.
Now I am not slandering Nicky Hilton, but I can see her out at a club with the Heatherette team in Lupe's outfit and thinking she was hot somewhere slumming in the East Village!

TokyoDoll said...

LOL. I love you boys! I hated this outfit.

She will have a great future designing puppet costumes.

Lupe sure is a lot cuter than Santino.

good model performance!!!!!
you can see she walking with her hair flying.

but the dress...

i am sorry, did marla deserve to be in again?

Madeline said...

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Alec Smart said...

Did someone say a webcast was available of these two style and fashion mavens watching episodes of PR ? I would love to see this. I'd pay good money to see this.
The world would love to see this.

You two teabaggers want to make some extra money ?

Anonymous said...

That dress is "fugly" embodied into something tangible...

Brandenburg3rd said...

There are some designers whose work would dovetail perfectly. Austin and Laura would create a good line together, just for a start.

Then we have the other side of the coin.

As they both have a habit of doing the opposite of Chanel's dictate ("Never add, only remove") I'd like to see Lupe and Santino set up shop together. I'd add in Angela, but there were a couple of outfits where she demonstrated that she could do things other than fleurchons and bubble skirts--maybe she could just visit their studio every other Saturday or something. (Vincent, on the other hand, would fit in great.)

The name of the line? Whackity-whack.
