The Home Stretch
We almost feel sorry for these designers because we’re so sick of the previous episode by Wednesdays.
Model: Kalyn Hemphill
Irina said that her outfit made her model look “like a lady,” and we can’t help thinking she missed the point.
When a model goes to an “industry party” (even one as lame as that staged non-event), the very last thing she wants is to look like a lady. She’s there to nab a job, not a husband.
There’s nothing particularly wrong with this look. It’s well executed and fitted; it’s tasteful and the fabric choices are nice.
It’s just that it looks like something someone twice this girl’s age would wear. She wants to look young and hot, not demure.
And speaking of models who don’t want to look demure…
Model: Ebony Jointer
Attention must be paid to Shirin, who took Ebony’s request for a royal blue and gold satin jumpsuit, promptly filed it in the round file and instead came up with this sassy little look.
It’s a really cute dress and it’s also well executed and fitted.
Of course, we treated you all to our thoughts on the endless parade of “really cute dresses” yesterday, so we’re not exactly thrilled with the look. We do like that back, though.
And like we said, she deserves kudos for not letting her client’s bad idea derail her from doing what she does best.
Model: Celine Chua
Nicolas when on and on about how he “tailored” this look and …uh, we don’t see it.
Specifically, we’re not seeing it around the bust area, where it’s pulling away from the side. Also, isn’t it a little weird that those bands of grey just sort of end at her collarbone?
Still, the overall effect is nice. We just wish it hadn’t been rendered in a shiny white satin.
