There’s no crying in fashion!
“I told my Mama I would make her proud by making a shitty dress this week!
Oy. This is a tough one to write.
Honestly, what can we say that hasn’t already been said?
And what can we say about a dress that has so little going for it? Seriously, there’s no there there.
But, being the little soldiers of fabulosity that we are, we’re going to plod our way through this one. Onward.
First up: color. Or rather, lack of. When one custom designs a dress, one should seriously take into consideration the skin, hair and eye color of the client when it comes time to pick the fabric. Did he even look at this girl?
Second: silhouette. SERIOUSLY unflattering. That girl’s got a great set of gams, so a short dress was a good idea, but the poofy, sleeveless baby doll does NOTHING for her figure.
And that hemline is a MESS. It looks like he made a dress out of an old drawstring bag.
And what is going on with that waist? It looks like he picked up some seashells on the beach and hot-glued them to her dress. We guess it was supposed to add some bling – and we’re all for that on this shapeless, colorless thing – but instead it made it look even sadder.
The general consensus online seems to be that he should have gone home this week and we can’t really counter that. Certainly if he had gone home, we wouldn’t have been upset.
The reason we think Christian’s was worse is because – well, because it was worse. Ricky’s dress was mostly drab and inoffensive, but Christian’s was a big ball o’ fug. On the other hand, you could argue that Christian’s dress at least had that all-important “point of view” so… oh God, kittens! We’re so confused! One thing we can both agree on is that sending Kevin home STILL sucks.
