Stella & Keith
Another diva choice we never would have predicted. Oh sure, some of the designers just didn’t have much in the way of the choices; we’re just a little shocked that on the whole, they all made such poor ones.
“These broads aren’t classy. Most of them wear really tacky shit on stage.”
Stella, Luisa Verde’s gonna beat your ass for that one.
And she looks like just the gal to do it. Although she did get in one of the best drag lines of the night:
“I look like Liz out of rehab.” When a drag queen says that, it’s in the tone of voice normally reserved for little girls who get ponies on the birthday.
As for the dress…
From a basic design point of view, it’s not awful, but from a “dressing a drag queen” point of view, it’s a big fail.
The whole design emphasizes how big and broad this broad really is and does nothing for the illusion she’s trying to create.
Plus, it’s poorly executed. Those sleeves look terrible.
And the fabric looks cheap. We do like the split skirt, though.
On a much smaller, much younger and probably much more anatomically correct girl, it wouldn’t be bad. We could see Gwen Stefani in something like this.
Problem is, Luisa ain’t no Gwen Stefani. On the one hand, we want to congratulate Stella for once again applying her aesthetic to the challenge. On the other, we have to admit that she missed the mark.
See, now this would seem like a good matchup.
Sherry’s a pretty girl with a hard edge and that seems about right for Keith’s style.
Unfortunately, she came off looking like the member of the Snuffleupagus family that no one wants to talk about.
But before we get to that…
They couldn’t claim the air conditioning was broken just to get him to take his shirt off? PR producers, must we think of everything?
Anyway. The dress (and we use that term loosely):
Honestly, what are we supposed to say? It’s awful.
Keith, that shredded swatch thing you’ve got going on just ain’t as interesting as you think.
Which isn’t to say it couldn’t have been interesting, but you would have had to make better choices.
Cheer up, Sherry.
Instead of these drab grays and blacks, wouldn’t it have been a lot more fabulous with some wild pops of color?
And wouldn’t it actually look like a dress if he’d shaped it somehow? As it is, it looks like a bunch of mopheads.
It’s just shapeless and lifeless and those are two words one should NEVER use when discussing a drag queen. He’s lucky Daniel did something boring again because this looked like a losing entry to us.
