S1/E3: Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper too?
And it’s Crazy Lady for the win! Credit where credit’s due, Wendy pulled a winning design out of her ass this time.
It’s pretty and well-executed and definitely designed with the client in mind. Our only real quibble is that it’s retro to the point of costumey. It looks like something Tippi Hedren would have worn in The Birds.
We don’t exactly lovelovelove the little capelet. It’s just a little too precious for us and some sort of contrasting color or trim would probably have sold this dress for us a little more. That column of dark blue needs something to break it up. And the little matchy-match purse was too much. Little girls get purses that match their dresses exactly. Grown women shouldn’t.
Still, despite her personality flaws and inability to dress herself or apply makeup, Wendy did deserve to win this. It’s to her credit that she really tailored her design to the client at hand without fussing over it too much. It wasn’t our favorite dress on the runway this week, but it was definitely among the top three.
Okay we were good. Now…
OHMIGOD WOMAN, frikkin style your hair for God’s sake! You look like you’re all dressed up for class picture day in the 4th grade! “Mommy let me wear her rollers last night!”
