Because we liked Sweet P, we’re definitely sorry to see her go…
…but we can’t honestly say we disagree with the judges on this one.
Well, that’s not entirely accurate. Lorenzo says he loves the dress (“Sue me!”), but even he agrees there were some serious problems with it.
Her choice of inspiration left us feeling much the same as when Daniel Vosovic decided to be inspired by a flower and the judges treated him like Michelangelo over it: “Oh. A peacock. Because THAT’S never been done.”
But then she chose some interesting and beautiful fabrics and seemed to be taking it to a more interesting, less literal level and we were intrigued.
Then she did that.
To be fair once again, Lorenzo kinda liked it but Tom thought she looked like the Queen Mother out for walkies. You had to go there, didn’t you Sweet P? You HAD to put FEATHERS on her.
Aw, we’re teasing. We don’t hate the feathers that much (yes we do), it’s just that the dress didn’t quite come together as it should have.
We like the color blocking – and the color choices, for that matter – but we just didn’t like the lines it created.
Even worse, we didn’t like the color blocking paired with that print. It overwhelms it completely.
…there’s the pockets. We’ve stated our dislike for pockets in dresses before, but come on. Those are some lousy proportions. She could fit her gym gear in those saddlebags. She could put a baby in each one and get her grocery shopping done.
To top it off in our best Nina voice “There iS Something to be deSired in the execution.” Choosing to do such a simple look left her no wiggle room in that area and it just came off looking unpolished and even a little sloppy.
We share what appears to be the majority online opinion that there seemed to be some mighty arbitrary judging going on last night, but we can’t honestly argue that she didn’t deserve to be auf’d.
Her work subsequent to this has shown that she’s a talented designer, but this dress was just a huge stack of no. Sorry, P.
