Lord, What fools these judges be!
Hey, even wood nymphs wanna get their freak on every now and then.
Nick, we luvya, but this dress was a disaster.
We think that, left to his own devices, Nick is capable of producing classic, flowy goddess gowns. It’s what he excels at.
Unfortunately, when Nick is floundering in a challenge that he would never undertake in the real world, he tends to lapse into tackiness. A lot of the other dresses this week, despite the fact they were made out of leaves, still embodied the designers’ aesthetics. Daniel’s looked like a Daniel dress; Chloe’s looked like a Chloe dress, and so on. As much as Nick likes fierce, high-impact dresses, this doesn’t look like a Nick dress to us.
Obviously, he screwed up in making his materials selection and when he got back to the workroom he had to make some major concessions just to get the dress done. That bust is HIDEOUS but we’re almost 100% sure Nick never would have used the stems if he wasn’t forced to.
And don’t even get us started on the exploding pussy.
The basic idea of using those big flat leaves as the basis for the dress was a good one and had he actually purchased enough of them, he really could have turned out a patented Nick Verreos red carpet dress. He’s damn lucky that the judges had more problems with Andrae’s because this was bringing him perilously close to the chopping block.
Wanna hear something shocking? We think this is really beautiful and creative.
We’ll go further than that: it’s our favorite out of everything Santino did during the competition. Who knew that gigantic raging fashion designer had the heart of a poet? This could have been perfect costuming for a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
He didn’t just slap a lot of leaves together (like most of the designers did). He put a lot of thought into arranging them and making patterns out of them. That bodice is absolutely beautiful and the netting at the bottom was genius.
Oddly enough, this was the most “woman-friendly” (can we just say we think that’s a silly term? Like other dresses really HATE women and try to HURT them) of all his designs. You can actually make out her natural curves under that thing! Who knew?
Then again, it’s kinda hard to do deconstruction with leaves. Oh! And the judges having a “problem” with his leaves being “too shiny?” Jesus H., those jackasses just make shit up to complain about, don’t they?
