Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’, keep them dresses rollin’…
Gordana, we love ya, but you really need to step it up, girl.

Not that we hate the dress. We like it quite a bit, in fact.
It’s just…it lacks oomph, y’know? In what’s become typical for her, it’s a basic dress with a twist. In this case, that woven panel running down the center.
Clearly that was no small feat from a technical standpoint and we salute her for it. But it seems to us she kinda blew her wad on that element and just made a basic dress to go around it.
Because really, there’s nothing else to this dress.
Maybe if she’d picked a more exciting color. Laura Bennett accused us of always hating nude dresses, but that’s not entirely true. We just think for Tara, something with a little more color would have made this dress pop more and made that center panel stand out more. Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that the hem, especially in the front, is a little fucked up.
Color us disappointed. He was accessory-free this week. Perhaps Skipper and Midge raided his accessories closet. And speaking of 10-inch tall women…

This would have made a perfect Barbie dress. In other words, it’s cute and feminine and bright, but it looks kind of silly on a grown woman.
She looks like one of those frilled cocktail picks. All those pleated ruffles on top and bottom, coupled with that kind of half-assed sash around her waist didn’t make for a very sophisticated look.
And the color didn’t help. To his credit, he knew he was taking a risk with the color but we have to say, the risk did not pay off.
We like Christopher’s work and aesthetic from what we’ve seen so far. Two words that describe it are “cute” and “feminine.” But like anything else, there’s a potential for going too far and this dress is evidence of that. You really can make something a little too cute and a little too girly.
