It’s not a bad look. It’s sexy with a side of slutty, but nicely tailored and a little expensive-looking.
And we do like the skirt, especially from the back.
Oh, sorry. Fell asleep there for a second.
What else is there to say? It evoked a film noir aesthetic without being too literal, but it wasn’t exactly an exciting look. Middle of the pack.
This was a pretty decent entry, all things considered.

We’re not exactly experts on 19th century dancehall girl costumes, but this appears to be pretty much dead on, which is impressive considering she had no reference materials. We like the colors she used.
And the almost invisible details, like the lacing and the little bows. The only thing that irritates us slightly is the asymmetrical lace around the top.
All in all, another decent middle-of-the-pack entry.
Irina: “From the last challenge and coming into this one, it reminded me of how good I am at doing these wow pieces.”
Oh, girl. Thank god for you and Nicolas or we wouldn’t have any smack-talking this year. Nothing more boring than a polite contestant. And nothing better than a smack-talker…

…who winds up with ass on the runway. This was one weird look. It’s like Alexis Carrington’s lingerie with a dryer sheet on top.
We don’t mind the lace cutouts so much, except they’re sending a message and that message says “Insert penis here.”
That’s not true; we do kind of mind the cutouts because they’re so cheap-looking.
And worse, the whole thing is pretty badly executed, what with all the puckering. Still, take away the dryer sheet and pretend that it’s well executed and it’s not a bad design. It’s just barely a middle-of-the pack entry, though. It’s like one point above a bottom three.
