High Wig, High Tea

Episode 7: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor thinks all wigs should be large enough to support oversize novelty items.

Before we dive into the fabulous folds of the Marie Antoinette costume, I encourage you take a moment of zen courtesy of Christine's dog, Babydoll Glamourlou. I found this unseen footage of her prancing around Chris' studio to be a sheer delight. I mean she's so small and frisky! And she's wearing a little pink dress! mad-fashion-season-1-gallery-episode-107

This week's challenge -- to create a Marie Antoinette-inspired look for Tracy Stern -- was a lot of fun (if you couldn't already tell from the photo above). Turning around such an elaborate costume in only three days may not be feasible for most, but Chris and his crew were up for the challenge. Chris really put the mad in Mad Fashion as he used pet tents to save time on the construction of the skirt (or the bra, according to Chris).mad-fashion-season-1-gallery-episode-107

For me though it was all about that enormous tea cup on that even more enormous wig. If only all wigs could be this large. How amazing would it be to see Kim Zolciak wearing a blond wig that big? Perhaps with a large novelty box of cigarettes or a microphone affixed to it? But I digress. I was just glad that Tracy was able to carry that tower of hair on her head.mad-fashion-season-1-gallery-episode-107

Well this is one way to walk through the park (and in my opinion the best way). Can you imagine being that guy behind Tracy? I would love seeing Marie Antoinette strolling about, that's the sort of thing that makes your day. I'm guessing Tracy knocked it out of the park at her tea party, because really the only person who might be able to top that is Marie Antoinette herself. Next week Matt buys a shopping cart from a homeless man. Just watch.

Ta-Ta Talk

Episode 9: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor thinks Izzy and Alex need to make a boob-themed musical.

I think it's mandatory that before you read the recap of this episode you take a moment to watch this video in which Izzy and Alex spout every name for boobs they can come up with.

See, aren't you pumped for an episode about bras now? I had completely forgotten about the word bazongas. People should bring it back into the vernacular.

I also think Alex and Izzy should seriously consider putting together a movie or musical called "Tits in Space". Between Izzy's wigs and Alex's outrageous outfits, I can only imagine how completely over-the-top the costumes would be. Maybe it would be a fashion show, but I just need that to happen.mad-fashion-season-1-gallery-episode-109

This week Chris' cups ranneth over as he had to create a bra-tastic ensemble for Jene Luciani, author of The Bra Book. Luckily she was game for some of Chris' Mad Fashion and let him run wild with brasseries. Two hundred brasseries to be exact. Which means four hundred individual cups in need of pink spray paint and bedazzling. Let's just say it was a real handful for Christine and Jake (haha boob jokes!).mad-fashion-season-1-gallery-episode-109

Izzy had a bit of a wig out moment when she became completely frazzled by all the frizz. When Alex couldn't even come up with something good to say about it, she knew it was doomed. The saddest part was that even after she managed to salvage it, the color was completely off and the whole hair piece ended up getting scrapped. Well maybe not so sad for Izzy, who was relieved to see it go. mad-fashion-season-1-gallery-episode-109

Wig aside, everything else really came together and Jene loved the dress. Chris really delivered on his promise to make her cleavage look classy. While he may have thought it was a bra-strocity, I thought it was more of a bra-nanza.

P.S. Is it just me or do the cups look like cute, little creatures?Next week Chris faces his biggest challenge yet when he has to design a fabulous gown for Chrissy Teigen to wear to the Met Ball.
