You are barking up the WRONG tree.
When we found out what this challenge was going to be, we said, “If Chris can’t win this, then he shouldn’t be there.” Outside of just handing them over to drag queens, you couldn’t have come up with a challenge more perfectly suited to Chris than this. Just look how “at home” he was in Spandex House. He probably could have walked up and down the aisles with his eyes closed and picked out the fabric he wanted.
…very hard for us to compliment because it’s so far away from the kind of clothing we would normally compliment, but for you darlings, we’re going to give it a shot.
Let’s get this out of the way first: We’re shocked that Michael Kors didn’t make the obvious “Shania Twain” joke. As we all know about the Duchess, she’s nothing if not obvious.
Oh, the hell with it. Let’s jump in.
It’s beautifully constructed, it’s got some touches to it that give it some interest, like the criss-crossing and the lined hoodie.
We don’t actually love the gloves because we think they take it from stagewear to stripper wear…
…and that thing on her thigh comes a bit too close to a garter for our comfort.
But it IS exactly in line with the concept of the challenge and the client clearly loved it. It had style (as far as these things go) and sass and all in all, it was just perfect.
And that’s the end.
