TFS: The Mini-Challenge
But here’s the thing, Bravo: We want to see the results. There were barely any shots showing any of the dresses in their totality.
And don’t even get us started on THIS bitch.
Here’s another thing, Bravo: Clearly, you got the message that reality competition fans love to see a little bitchiness in the judging, but you only understood half of it. If the judge is capable of offering those little bon mots all on their own (like Kors or Garcia), then you’ve got some primo entertainment. If the judge just runs in and quickly spouts off some obviously scripted lines instead of offering any real assessments, then it becomes cringe-inducing.
Nothing she said amounted to anything like a real critique. It was just one one-liner after another and they were nasty for no real reason at all. She made fun of dresses that she wound up picking as winners.
Still, we liked the idea that she made her choices without knowing who the designers were and we have to admit, we agreed with all the choices.
She bitchily called that shoulder treatment an airbag, but we thought it looked chic and unique.
Perhaps a little plain, but it was a flattering design.
We liked the line on the shoulders and the back looks a little tacky from a t-shirt perspective, but picture it on a real dress that’s been sewn instead of a ripped-apart and pinned-together t-shirt and it’s got potential.
As for the rest of them, we barely got a good enough look.
Angel: Feh. Looks a little trashy.
Anna: Could be nice, but really poorly executed. We’re assuming execution takes a back seat in the judging on the mini-challenge (as it should), but this one was too bad to ignore.
James-Paul: GOD. Save us from the facacta safety pin. Any designer in 2009 who still considers that “edgy” needs to be viciously face-slapped.
Jonny D: Ew. No.
Kristin: Not bad. We like the neckline and sleeves.
Laura: Badly done and boring.
Lidia: “It’s very avant-garde.” Fucking please. As if 8-year-olds haven’t been whip-stitching yarn on their arts and craft projects for decades.
Markus: Um…kinda? It’s not great, but we’re interested in what he was going for here.
Reco: It’s ticky-tacky stripper wear, but it’s amazingly well done for such a short turnaround time. Who else managed to fit a bust in that time?
They never even showed Haven’s or Andrew’s entries. That’s poor form, Bravo. Do better next week.
