What?! Oh, sorry, I must have dozed off again.
I just can’t help it: this season is lacking in fireworks, as blog commenter PR Fan has pointed out. I’m enjoying the lack of meanness and backstabbing, but 45 minutes into the show, I suddenly realized that Heidi Klum’s quips are the only sign of life this season. (Though I did NOT appreciate her blatant dismay at Carol Hannah’s use of the word “y’all.” I know plenty of New Yorkers and Californians who say “y’all,” so I find it hard to believe she’s never heard it before.)
This week the designers forgot they were designing for models; instead they designed a bunch of pretty party dresses that might also work for dates. One after another they came down the runway, looking suitable for dinner at Joel. Johnny got the worst of it – having his dress called the “B” word – “bridesmaid.” Yikes! If you’ve been one, or worse, been one in purple, you know!
Once again, I found myself confused by the winner – am I just not getting it this season? The overall effect of Althea’s suit looked trashy from the vantage point of my living room (though I will concede that the dark runway probably wasn’t good for highlighting a dark design). Here’s why: Althea’s model, a buxom lass, looked wildly slutty in her stretch top with no bra, whereas Epperson’s strappy slip dress was criticized for making his model look flat-chested. What a double standard! (PR Fan disagrees with me.)
No one should be surprised that Qristyl went home – Qristyl herself wasn’t, if you listened closely to the dialogue during the show.
What do you think? Did the right person win? Does a dress need a pronounced bustline to look good?
