Sweet P, Steven & Marion
We went back and forth on this one, but ultimately, Lorenzo joined Tom on the Dark Side and agreed that this was just not good.
First off, the frigging bow. Enough already. Second, the big sash-y straps. Too much.
And finally, it’s a basic, shapeless sack. The fabric is pretty but the overall color choices are kinda bleh.
Y’know, you can take your Ramis and your Jacks,* we’ll be over here swooning over Steven. He’s a dreamboat.
*But don’t take them too far, we might need them later.
We don’t hate it, but it is a bit of a headscratcher.
It’s kinda too plain and kinda too severe and it’s just a little weird to see someone working a “sexy secretary” vibe amidst a sea of goddess gowns and celebutante party dresses.
It was too dark to see all the details (*shakes fist at producers for not listening to us and going with an ALL WHITE runway set*) but for the most part it looked finished and well executed. Tom likes the touch of ruffle on the back but Lorenzo doesn’t.
We WANT to be polite and not make horrible character assumptions about people we don’t know, so we feel JUST AWFUL about mentioning our observation that Marion comes off like some sort of pervert on camera, what with the paleness and the sweating and the darting eyes.
The ragamuffin clothes on a man pushing 40 doesn’t help either, but we digress.
Honestly, what can we say? It’s awful. They gave poor Ricky ten minutes of shit for making a pretty baby doll dress, but THIS gets not a second of comment from the judges? Really?
Did he make that skirt out of carpet remnants?
