Ripping the Collections: Wendy, Part One
Let’s just say right off the bat that everything she made was very well executed. Her model selection and styling choices were uninspired (quel surprise) but really, the most awful thing about her show was the music. What a load of pretentious twaddle that was.
Let’s start the show.
How the hell did these designers afford so much fur on such a small budget?
It’s weird that she was freaking out over the Duchess’s suggestion that they start off with a “wow” piece and she chose this. This is “wow?” Unh-unh. This is dull. Catalogue clothes.
And that neckline is annoying.
There’s just not much to say here. More catalogue clothes. We’ve seen that coat in the knockoff shops on Canal Street — in 1996.
This is very pretty. Beautiful fabric and color, although that jacket doesn’t look as well-fitted as it should and that neckline trim seems to stop before it’s supposed to. Those shoes? Awful choice.
This is another pretty dress that you could pick up in any mall in America. That bust looks a little funky though. Gotta say, we can’t stand her but Olga looks hot here.
Awww. Some poor little lost model wandered onto the runway. How else to explain this? It doesn’t look like it belongs in the same collection at all. Ugh. GOD, this is ugly and dated. Easily ten years out of style.
Yow. That is FUG. Are we really looking at orange quilted satin? We’re dreaming this, right? We’re trying to avoid asking the question “What woman would wear this?” but we just have to ask “What woman would look GOOD in this?” Even taking into consideration the idea of the consumer editing to their satisfaction, it doesn’t work. How do you edit an orange quilted satin suit?
