It’s really saying something when this dress is actually a little more interesting design-wise than most of the rest of them.
You couldn’t get much more basic than this (but god bless him, Danny V. managed); under normal circumstances, it probably wouldn’t even register, but since the pool was so shallow this week, the finer touches stand out. We love the fit in the bodice and the cut of the bust.
Coupled with the racer back, it gives it a strong, almost sporty feel to it. Unfortunately, the color does nothing for the dress and the skirt really doesn’t look so good to us.
Plus, she clearly had finishing problems.
It’s a shame she had to go, because Kara has such a quirky, distinct, yet chic aesthetic, but we really can’t argue with the decision.
We don’t know why she floundered so much in this challenge, but flounder she did. She really seemed lost and unsure of herself, not to mention exhausted.
Like so many other people who don’t make it to the end in these things, it certainly wasn’t a lack of talent that did her in so much as a lack of ability to survive in a reality show competition, which isn’t much of a measure of anything in the long run. Her story isn’t quite over for this season, since she was the decoy collection at Bryant Park and we’ll be looking at her collection later, but one thing’s for sure, Kara is doing just fine.
