Bottom Boys – The Sequel
When did adorable, weepy Christopher become the guy everyone hates? Sure, his work has been less than stellar these last few challenges and we can understand why people think he should have gone home, but the anger, kittens. Where is the anger coming from? He’s like a little fluffy bunny of fashion!
Cliche? You betcha. Not so great execution? No argument there. Tacky? Well yes, but we’re talking about stagewear for Christina Aguilera here. If you really want to be pedantic about it, most of Bob Mackie’s oeuvre could be considered tacky.
And we honestly don’t mind the idea of hot pants, except these hot pants look decidedly flimsy. Nina went off on the whole Lady Marmalade thing but it’s not uncommon for singers to wear costumes that hearken back to earlier looks when they’re singing their greatest hits. Cher does it all the time and even Madonna broke out the wedding gowns and pointy bras in concert years after she made them famous.
Note to Katie: You may think your ass is your worst feature, and we realize we’re not the demographic your ass should be appealing to, but you’re nuts, girl. That ass is FINE.
For us, what makes this entry defensible is the fact that he was the only designer who conceptualized it in terms of stage wear. He gave her two distinct looks with quick-change capabilities. And to be honest, we kind of liked this look.
On the other hand, it’s looking more and more obvious to us that Logan’s being kept in the game in the hopes that he trips and falls and accidentally winds up with his penis inside one of the other contestants.
Okay, that’s not entirely true. We can defend it on the grounds that it least attempts an over-the-top stagewear sensibility. That’s commendable since so many other designers for some inexplicable reason made gowns.
Thankfully, Nina was finally home where she belonged.
“I leave you people for a couple of weeks, and this is what you have waiting for me when I come back? Shitty retreads? Why? Why can’t I trust you to do the right thing when I’m not here, Heidi? Didn’t I leave you extensive instructions? Didn’t I tell you what to say?”
