Oh, there was much arguing last night over this dress. This goddamn season is going to be the death of our marriage. We hope you bitches are happy.
Lorenzo thinks there were better choices for the win on the runway, but Tom thinks this is the prettiest and most “garden party” out of all the dresses. Lorenzo just thinks it’s basic and obvious. Although Tom has to admit, looking at the screencaps, this dress isn’t quite as lightweight or fitted as it appeared on the show. She looks awfully thick-waisted.
A major point of contention: that he had so much of the muslin showing.
Granted, the straps are actually ribbon, but that whole flower bodice rests on the fact that he went a little light on the flowers, meaning, the muslin was actually part of the finished design instead of just a supporting garment. A minor point, to be sure, but Lorenzo is one picky bitch.
The thing that really sticks in Lorenzo’s craw is that the judges quite stupidly made such a big deal out of the lack of flowers on the garments, never once considering that …hello?! Flowers don’t come cheap – especially in Manhattan. They made it quite clear that Daniel’s use of flowers was a major factor in their decision.
Still, even Lorenzo admits that it was a pretty dress. He can’t actually bring himself to compliment it, so that falls to Tom. We I like the weave on the bodice and the use of ferns to make the skirt was brilliant. He picked an absolutely gorgeous flower for the bust and used it sparingly, placing the flowers as if they were lightly falling down the dress. All in all, it was pretty and chic and well-made.
