This season is destroying our marriage.
We’re back to arguing again.
Lorenzo loves it and Tom went from merely liking it to hating it more each time he looks at it. Seriously hating it.
Alright, let’s start with Lorenzo: he thinks it’s a beautiful, sophisticated, albeit basic, prom dress. He thinks the color and choice of fabric is lovely and flattering and he thinks the client loved it and glowed when she walked down the runway.
Here’s Tom’s retort: Basic. That’s exactly right. In fact, it’s so basic that it could be picked up in any prom or bridal shop anywhere in the country for about $150.00.
But before we get into the back and forth on that, let’s talk about some technical issues on which we both agree. The shirring in the bust and the double straps are nice details, but the fit in the bust is seriously wonky. Those cups are way too high and she looks like she’s gonna pop out of the sides the very first time she raises her hands in the air like she just don’t care.
And what’s the strange pulling over there on the right?
We’re also both in agreement that the skirt was too full and from the back, wasn’t particularly flattering.
Now. Back to yelling at each other.
Lorenzo says that it looks like a prom dress and it’s a pretty and sophisticated design.
Tom says, if the criteria were “pretty” and “looks like a prom dress” then Chris should have been standing there in the number 2 spot instead of Sweet P.
Nonetheless, we’re both happy to see her finally complete a look polished enough to get the judges’ attention even if there were more deserving dresses on the runway.
Also, if they auf’d her, we’re a little afraid she would have used her telekinetic powers to lock them in the studio and blow the whole place up.
