Go Team SissyFierce!
Is so breathtaking that we have not the words. Seriously.
Is yet another ’80s secretary look.
Quick question: Which look won them the challenge?
Another one: And which team member’s aesthetic was most responsible for that winning look? Exactly.
Once again, our Sissy gets shafted.
Oh, it wasn’t a deliberate thing and we’re certainly not saying Christian didn’t deserve the credit, but one look at Chris’ portfolio and you can see who had the greater influence in producing such an over-the-top look.
One thing that really surprised us was just how well these two got along. When Tim announced each team, we groaned at every matchup, including this one. We just assumed the age difference and the competing styles of bitchery (Chris’ more passive, laid back, subtle bitchery vs. Christian’s me-me-me, hyperactive hamster-on-meth version) would naturally lead to fireworks. We were happy to discover that we were totally wrong and these two worked like a dream.
The avant garde look is truly amazing. We can’t argue with the judges’ decision at all. As we indicated, we think Chris had the most to do with this look’s success but we can still see the Christian influence.
The sheer over-the-top dragitude of it all was clearly Chris’ contribution, but the pleating and the ruffles certainly have that Christian feel to them.
Our only complaint is the lack of color. Actually, that’s not so much a complaint (because the color they chose does work) as it is a wish. We think this just screams for more of it. Then again, that might have pushed it too far into the drag-queen-on-a-float arena.
This, on the other hand…
Not so much.
Lorenzo absolutely hates this look but Tom thinks it could have worked with a little editing. In terms of interpreting the avant garde look to ready-to-wear, the top almost works. Although it is a little sloppy-looking.
Honestly, what throws the whole look off is the ugly-ass skirt and belt. And that’s…pretty much all we have to say about this outfit.
It’s funny, the avant garde look is so stunning that we have trouble coming up with things to say about it and the ready-to-wear look is so dull that we have exactly the same problem.
One thing we can all agree on: Christian’s outfit is ridiculous. Was he going figure-skating after this?
