Staggering to the finish line.
Strap yourselves in, bitches. We’re in the homestretch!
Korto’s initial good impression is rapidly fading with each challenge. While this week’s entry was better than last week’s, it’s still a fairly poor attempt.
Look, jumpsuits are making a comeback (although we suspect it’s a brief one), so points to her for being on trend. That doesn’t mean we have to like it, though.
Did the designers collectively just not get this challenge? What about this look says “night on the town in NYC?” What does the picture she took have to do with this look?
It’s a testament to how badly these looks are photographed on the show that there’s simply no way to tell that she apparently used rope and braiding techniques to mimic the column in the picture. It’s way too subtle to be appreciated, but she did actually make a limited attempt at “inspiration.”
Still, it’s just a terribly bland look paired with bland styling. We’re not all that crazy about the proportions either. The flare on those pants is insane and the bust and collar do weird things to her torso. Not flattering and not interesting.
Suede misses his mommy.
It’s … alright, we guess. So long as you ignore the execution and fit flaws. And the bigass HAZMAT boots.
He really only took color from his inspiration and then went off on his own. To our tastes, there’s a little too much shiny and a little too much bling here.
To his credit, he did use some nice details that didn’t show up on the Black Runway of Doom.
It’s just that it’s kind of sloppy-looking and it doesn’t appear to fit her properly anywhere.
Still, lose the tacky belt, steam that thing, take another crack at that hemline, and put it on a person it fits correctly and it’s not a bad look.
If Daniel wrote his autobiography, it would be titled Daniel Feld: Ten Seconds to Meltdown. Not that he ever will have a meltdown. He appears to live in a perpetual state of razor’s edge. Almost, but not quite, flipping out.
And we don’t get this dress. It looks like she’s still in the process of putting it on.
Like so many others, his inspiration was incredibly vague but props to him for mimicking the quality of light in the photo so effectively.
There’s all kinds of …business going on in that bodice.
So much, that we can’t really get a handle on it. The finished effect looks like a lot of extra fabric hanging of her boob.
Just once, we’d like to see Daniel (who we can tell is talented) would calm down and make something a little simple and classic just to prove that he can. He seems to be throwing every trick he knows at the dress form every week and the result is always too much look.
