Saving the Best For Last
We still stand by our assessment that Kit’s was the most stylish and youthful out of the entries – and therefore, the winner – but if the question is “Who made the most beautiful dress?” then hands down, the winner is Chris.
We’re not journalists and we don’t pretend to be but we do try and look at the entries somewhat objectively. We don’t want our like or dislike of certain personalities to color our opinions. But kittens, we can’t help it: the fat kid is really getting ignored here.
He’s produced some clunkers this season, no doubt about it, but when he hits that ball, it goes sailing over the fence and apparently, right over the judges’ clueless heads.
It is absurd that not only was this dress shuffled off the runway without a word, but then to have Heidi say that the judges only liked two dresses – Sweet P’s and VictorYA’s? That is some sweet, sweet crack they’re smoking in the Parson’s basement.
We’re not without criticisms, though (quelle surprise). Overall, the look is a little mature for a 17-year-old and the color just doesn’t say “prom” to us. The shirring in the bust is beautiful, but it does give it a sort of “breastplate” look to it. On a mature woman, the effect would work – think Helen Mirren on the red carpet – but on a young girl it’s a bit much.
We love the straps and the way the skirt flowed and moved on the runway.
We don’t love the little metal rings holding it together in the front and back.
And while the extra fabric on the front and back are nice details, they again, say “mature woman” rather than “young girl” to us.
We can live with it not being the winner, but for it to be passed by without mention? To be told that it didn’t even register as a dress the judges liked? Fuck that noise. This was an absolutely beautiful garment.
Chris, you were robbed this week. But we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that the styling kind of sucked. What’s going on with that sloppy hairdo?
…you apparently have some interesting ideas about hair.
