Tims Take

Diane von Furstenberg accepts no excuses.

on Sep 3, 2008

Korto created a floor-length halter gown in a black and white op-art-ish swirling print reminiscent of the British painter Bridget Riley. A slit in the front of the skirt of the dress revealed a flourish of yellow silk. Over the gown was a black faux lamb shrug. When Korto's look was being discussed by the judges, I couldn't tell where was the comments were headed -- Heidi led with some critical remarks, followed by some barely emotive comments from Michael and Fern - and then Diane declared, "I like it very much." End of discussion. I agree with Diane, but I still believe that the peek of yellow running from under the arm to the shoulder looked like a bra strap run amuck.
