Break it down one time.
Bravo execs? A suggestion. Next season, have the first 3 challenges be “Design for a Hooker,” Design for a Stripper,” and “Design for a Porn Star.” Just let the designers get it out of their systems.
“Nina, my story is…she’s rich; right? Really classy. And she’s just coming out of the shower, ok? And uh… the poolboy barges in! She barely has enough time to get her evening gown on!”
We love Michael and we’re glad he made it to OFW, but he was obviously fashion-fried at this point and he’d just had his muse – who just happened to be the best model of the season – taken away from him unexpectedly. We’ve all been there.
Well…okay, none of us have been there, but still.
Still cute, though.
1. His rejected designs look more interesting than his final one.
2. You can tell he was still sketching for Nazri and that’s probably what tripped him up the most.
3. His sketch for his final design looks a helluva lot more interesting than what he produced.
Let’s break it down; shall we?
Poor choice of fabric. The color is a little tacky and the excessive shininess screams “PROMSLUT!”
Second problem: poor styling choices, both in the photo and on the runway. All she needed was a pair of clear-heeled shoes and a pole at the end of the runway and the image would have been complete.
This is basically Act 2 of every Lifetime movie. The part after the troubled daughter runs away and gets herself into a hot mess, but just before the mother heroically sets out to rescue her.
Final problem: Poor execution and fit – which is the most surprising of all, since Michael is usually meticulous in these areas.
And speaking of areas…it’s not just that the poor fit gave Clarissa a little belly bump; it’s that it gave her a very oddly shaped, lop-sided, baby alien belly bump.
WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON THERE?
