Darlings, someone’s going to have to explain this one to us.
Oh, don’t get us wrong, we’re happy for Carol Hannah. She’s been pretty consistent all season and deserved to get some recognition.
And we even think her entry was the best of the lot. The problem is, she won a “design a costume for Christina Aguilera” challenge…
Model: Lisa Blades
By designing a costume for Mariah Carey. Does no one else see this?
It’s a great dress, no doubt. But it just doesn’t look much like a Christina Aguilera look to us.
Way too formal and mature-looking, to our tastes. Not to mention understated.
Sure, you could argue that sequins and feathers are hardly understated but come on, we’re talking Bob Mackie here. You give Bob Mackie a pile of sequins and feathers and he’s gonna give you this back:
Now THAT’S what we’re talking about!
Okay, we don’t want to step all over the poor girl’s long-deserved win. It was a beautiful dress.
And she really did do an amazing job with the feathers.
We agree with the win, really we do. We’re just disappointed with the lackluster entries. It’s a great dress, but it shouldn’t even be in the same room as Bob Mackie. You can barely see the details on it from ten feet away. It’s only going to read as a black dress from the cheap seats. We may not be Christina Aguilera’s most ardent fans but even we know the girl needs a little more than that.
