So, this week, the designers had to make a prom dress for the high school girl who picked them. There were some great things up there, and some awful things up there, but mostly things that were neither great nor awful.
Whiny bitch Christian made this dress, which didn’t satisfy him or Maddie, his client. Then he blamed it all on her being picky. Suck it up, baby. You’re the designer. (Can you tell I don’t like Christian?) The dress was over-the-top and the Dolce & Gabbana pony hair leopard print pumps were, too. Maybe they’d be all right with an all black outfit or something more demure, but with this dress, they were way too costumey.
On the other hand, Chris (the King of Costumey) made this very nice dress for his client, Krista. Tasteful, stylish, prom-appropriate, and a great color on her. I couldn’t find the exact shoes on Bluefly, but any number of strappy silver sandals would look lovely with this dress (which has silver buckles on the back that are very subtle and glitzy). Might I suggest these “Ice Rink” sandals from Stuart Weitzman, which are delicate and neat-looking. If you like them, by the way, and you wear a 10 or 10.5, they’re on sale for only $130.
Likewise, I didn’t see the silver sandals Tizi wore with Kevin’s uninspired (and ultimately losing) dress. But these Ferragamo “Strike” sandals have a similar (and I think somewhat funkier) feel.
Overall, I was sort of underwhelmed. Nothing was really egregiously ugly (except for Christian’s), but I wasn’t blown away by anything either. Oh well. There’s always next week.
