TFS: Team Haven
It’s safety pin time!
But before we get to that, we may as well spare a couple of words regarding the mini-challenge.
And we really mean “a couple words.” It just wasn’t interesting enough to devote an entire post to it. Bitchy face here didn’t even give us anything to complain about.
They’ve done challenges like this on Top Chef and Top Design and for the most part, they worked in those settings.
The problem with doing it on a show like this is that it really has nothing to do with being a designer. This is a task and a challenge for a stylist. As a challenge, it told us nothing about the people involved.
And that concludes our thoughts on the mini-challenge. Seriously, we’ve got nothing. Let’s rip dresses!
We have no idea how or why Haven got chosen as the team leader but we bet that’s the last time that’s gonna happen.
Because all she managed to do was bring unnecessary bitchiness to the table without actually doing anything to lead her team. Looking over the collection, there was absolutely no cohesiveness to it. Plus, as we said before, she should have never allowed Laura to buy or use that red tulle.
Feh. It’s a little too precious and little too poorly executed.
Although the model had a great walk.
The top of that bust is all kinds of bad and is that a side zipper or just a really bad seam?
Seriously, who the hell saw ANY of these details on the TV screen? Apparently, some of the designers decided to make Angela Keslar’s patented fleurchons something of a theme although we don’t recall hearing any such discussion.
It’s better than most of the entries on this team. Scratch that – it’s better than ALL of them, but that doesn’t mean it was a great dress.
It’s that slash of white that really grates. It looks like it should say MISS UTAH or something.
Too many elements for one dress.
The judging on this show isn’t great, but they did manage to effectively rip the hell out of this one. We’ve got nothing to say that wasn’t already said.
Shapeless, colorless, boring. And why was Markus going on about her supposed great walk? She stomped down that runway like she was putting out a fire.
Kelly nailed it when she said it looked like diapers. That’s exactly what we were thinking.
As bad as this was, we thought the judges were right not to put it at the absolute bottom of the pile. There was enough of an idea there to keep him in even if it was executed very poorly.
Tacky, tacky, tacky.
When Isaac comes in and asks you if that top is going to stay up, that’s code for “that top is too small.” Learn to speak “judge,” Johnny.
The skirt wasn’t too bad. The fabric’s decent and there was an idea there, even if it didn’t come out as well as it should have.
She’s keeping that thing up on pure muscle control and a prayer. And lots and lots of titty tape.
This was unforgivable. One thing we’ve noticed about the show so far: almost NONE of these designers seemed to be able to budget their time well. On shows like this there’s always a learning curve for these sorts of things, but we can’t ever recall a cast where the majority of them can’t seem to figure out the time restraints. It’s making for an awful lot of bad dresses.
And yes, he was a petulant little brat about the whole thing. We’ll give him credit for having the sense to apologize for it afterwards (could you imagine Santino doing that?). You might think that such a little temper tantrum should have resulted in an automatic
auf “Bye-bye,” but Laura’s dress was so much worse than his that we can’t fault the judges for their decision.
