Fit for a Queen
Episode 4: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor loves how quickly Vanessa's attitude turned around when they whipped out the tiara.
This week the Simmons sisters were on the scene, and they brought their little friend along with them. No, not Diggy (Run's House reference!), but Barbie. Angela and Vanessa have their own "So in Style" Barbie line, and they both need Barbie-inspired dresses. Who better to doll them up than Chris March?
The dresses were divvied up between Alex, who took on Vanessa's classic diva dream dress, and Christine, who jumped at the chance to craft Angela's "psychedelic party girl" gown. While Christine was inordinately tickled about sewing what looked like approximately five hundred petticoats for Angela's skirt, the look of pure joy on her face as she tried on all the potential tiaras for Vanessa easily trumped that.
Much like Chris I was a little, um, perplexed as to what Matt was thinking when he delivered this design for the giant sneaker purses. A rather suggestive silhouette, no?Barbie really struck a chord with Izzy, who got, dare we say, a little too into playing with the Barbies. When you're steam straightening her hair and using her tiny little doll hands to help you brush an actual wig, it might be time to put down the Barbie.
As one might expect, there was definitely a little jealousy on both sides. First Vanessa was bummed that Angela's dress was so colorful compared to her classy little black dress. But she quickly changed her tune once she realized she got to wear an awesome tiara. And once Angela saw said tiara, let's just say her dress changed from pink to green real fast.
I loved the wigs, since they added a real Barbie doll flair to the looks, but alas, the girls weren't feeling them (especially Angela).
In the end, the Simmons sisters made a splash with their opposite-end-of-the-spectrum dresses. I wonder which one Rev Run preferred?
