We didn’t really think the judges had a good reason to auf her, so they made one up. The only design issue was that it was too small for the model to wear. Otherwise, it was a perfectly good bathing suit and better than at least a couple of the other ones on the runway.
Good god, girl! Eat a burger or something!
Are those…jingle bells hanging off her? If so, then we amend our earlier statement. There were two design issues.
Seriously, her ribcage scares us. This was a case of not considering the model’s body type when designing the garment. She would have looked much better in a one-piece.
Of course, that really wasn’t the judges’ issue. They aufed her for being derivative. Thing is, that’s a crock. You could have made the same argument about any of the suits on the runway. Jay basically started off by saying “I saw a suit somewhere that had a lot of straps, so that’s what I’m doing.” The only difference is, Alexandra actually came right out and mentioned her inspirations in front of the judges.
Aaaaannnd they basically look like a million other bathing suits out there. Meaning, they were “derivative” too. Silly judges.
