So it was a pretty tame episode compared to last week's drama. Last night the contestants were asked to remake old bridesmaid dresses which is a pretty neat idea. I was psyched. Some of them looked amazing after the redo, some of them not so much. (cough, Valerie, cough).
The winner, was Michael C. And boy was everyone seething. Okay, I don't really understand why everyone really HATES, Michael C. Yeah, that episode where he won for his Brazilian dress was surprising but so what. It did look pretty. So he didn't know how to make a cowl neck off the bat, but last night's dress looked pretty impressive. The sleeves looked totally 80s but I guess that's what's in now and they didn't look easy to make.
And I don't buy that Michael was telling people at the party not to vote for Ivy. It doesn't fit. If he had I think the cameras would have caught something. I think Ivy might just looking for reason to hate Michael as with everyone else. And ultimately, it looks bad. The only decent person was Casanova who said, "I have no issue with Michael Costello. I respect him as a designer and I think he's very humble". Can you tell I don't like mean people?
I also really liked Gretchen's design and thought it would definitely be in the top three. I will say that there is a certain look to her designs, a uniformity. Is that a bad thing for PR, maybe, they seem to like versatility. She's a big fan of short skirts and tall boots. But I like her stuff.
Mondo's dress was also impressive. The judges were right when they complimented the tailoring. It looked like butta! If you didn't like the dress, you had to admire the tailoring. Takes talent.
I also liked April's dress for once. And was happy for her to finally not be in the bottom three.
I thought Valerie's looked the worst, badly tailored, badly designed. WHAT was she thinking? It looks like something a 5th grader designed in the 80s with the criscrossed strappy back and floppy front. Bleh.
Peach's dress, yes, deserved to be at the bottom. Holly Hobby, oh yeah. Speaking of peplum, hah, we know what that means! But let's hope ours looks a little better. We don't pair ours with another ruffle and a halter top. Michael Kors was right, when he said, "She has the sewing and the tailoring skills, it's the taste level I'm worried about." Her pink sunglass and purse sweater wasn't helping her cause. BUT, I think she's a kind person, not like some of the contestants. I liked her and I was a little sad that she wouldn't be on anymore.
Finally, Michael D.'s dress, not that bad, at least not worse than Valerie's. I wonder what the judges would have thought if he made a more form fitting dress. Might have gone well?
Next week's preview....Heidi: "You're still throwing him under the bus". We all know what that means.
