Precious and Poo
This is another one where we don’t agree. Lorenzo likes it and Tom doesn’t.
We’re in agreement that conceptually, it’s a fine place to start. However, Lorenzo thinks the end product was pretty and bold, while Tom thinks it looks a little precious and amateurish.
It’s that overabundance of pleating and ribbons that just makes him think of square-dancing costumes. Unfairly, admittedly.
Still, the judges loved it and it is sort of plainly pretty, so Lorenzo wins that round.
We’re in full agreement on this one. This was fashion poo.
His choice of inspiration was no more inspired than Zulema’s. “I saw fabric and IMMEDIATELY had visions of … a DRESS!” Poor thing was completely thrown off by the model drama, so it’s hard to even judge him on this since his heart clearly wasn’t in it.
We’ve seen the fishtail hems and lace up sandals plenty of times before from Nick. He was just phoning this one in. That skirt fabric is tacky and too-shiny. It doesn’t go with the top at all.
The top itself is nice enough, but it didn’t feel very young or chic. It seemed kinda blousey and matronly despite the exposed skin.
Aw, poor Nick! He was a drama queen this week, but you just want to scoop him up and tuck him in and tell him tomorrow’s another day, don’t you?
