Why she’ll win?
Irina says she’ll win because she is “the best” and will “save the world, one dress at a time.”
Y’know, Tim was right about that, because it’s true, looking at these pictures from her S/F ’08 collections, we have to say that every look is particularly well-fitted. Still, it’s not exactly to our taste. Who knows what she’ll be like on the show and whether or not her style has changed since these collections, but we’re seeing an awful lot of ’90s-esque lingerie-inspired looks. Lots of shiny-shiny. Not really our thing.
We have no predictions as to what she’ll be like on the show but we’re kind of hoping she’s a huge bitch and a pain in the ass. Why?
If this wasn’t enough Irina for you (and remember, the goal is to COMPLETELY prejudge these bitches before we see a minute of S6), by all means, head on over to her myLifetime.com page for a tour of her apartment (and closet) or even fashion tips, Georgian-style.
