Blayne is OUT. He is teamed with Stella who couldn't have been sweeter and more supportive. Libra is the sign that they chose, but what a stretch of the imagination that was when it came to their look. And how to describe it: a nude onesy with an S&M leather harness, plus a frothy voluminous column of pink, ivory, and turquoise fabric from the shoulder to the ankle on the right side. It was an interesting concept (I think), but the execution was atrocious and, frankly, insulting to the judges. While teaching, the worst of my students' work was never quite this bad or quite this ridiculous. Blayne, what happened? Did you succumb to Stella-liciousness? We will sincerely miss you!
