Big Basket of Not-So’s
Geez, it’s really hard to throw the bitchery around when you know the designer. Emmett darling, we loveya, but we don’t love this dress.
Actually, it’s not the dress as much as it’s that jacket. As it is, the dress has a lot of elements to be taken in and it’s to his credit that he kept them all subtle by going monochromatic. But there’s enough going on without the jacket. The outfit doesn’t need it and the jacket is just too fussy and busy.
Without it, the dress is pretty, if a little unflattering. It’s almost as if he melded two dresses. If it didn’t have that flared skirt, it’d be a cute little slip dress; if he’d kept the flared skirt and went with a more fitted bodice, it’d be a cute little cocktail dress.
We think Kirsten’s fabulous, but this? Is not.
It seems like such a strange entry for this challenge. So blah. There’s a little interest generated by the jacket, but not much.
And what we’re left with doesn’t look particularly well made. That back looks like a kid’s craft project. Nor is it a particular good or even interesting design. Seems very fashion school-y.
And the tailoring on the pants looks terrible. We’re actually a little surprised the judges didn’t call her out on this.
Seeya real soon!
Why? Because this dress is irritating the shit out of us!
Lovely silhouette, deep rich color. Fine. Good job, Daniel. Got that out of the way.
WHAT THE HELL is going on with that bust? It’s so weirdly tailored that it completely disguises her natural curves and those utterly bizarre mouse ears are totally distracting. Plus, the trim on the skirt and the unflattering angle of that belt are big WTFs.
And then the “Too much shit on this dress” sweepstakes continue as she turns around, revealing herself to be a giant handbag.
Daniel, there’s too much shit on this dress.
