You’re jealous right now and we don’t blame you.
Our reason for watching is now gone. Blog over.
Oh, alright. We’ll keep blogging, but out heart’s not in it. By the way, if you want a refresher, we looked at DVF’s Fall 2008 collection here.
Y’know…all things considered, this really isn’t a bad effort. The Salvation Army cape is all wrong, but the rest of it isn’t that bad.
Execution issues aside, of course.
And the cape itself wasn’t terrible; it just didn’t go with the rest of the outfit nor did it fit the challenge all that well.
The rest of the look almost makes up for it. It’s modern, but it has some throwbacks to 30s and 40s glamour to it.
And inexplicably, it still looks like Stella. We’ll keep saying it: that was her greatest strength as a contestant and designer, the ability to mold her aesthetic to the task at hand.
Of course, that was somewhat overshadowed by her big weakness: tailoring and execution. We have no doubt that Stella can design the shit out of leathuh, but she floundered in the more traditional realms of fashion.
Stella seemed to know that her time was coming to an end and she faced it well. We’re gonna miss her terribly. It’s rare to find someone that comfortable with themselves on camera and she always, ALWAYS had something to say that made us laugh. A true original in a sea of wannabes.
“If you like my stuff come buy it, if you don’t, keep walking, I don’t care”
Stella, you fucking ROCK.
