A Children's Story
Forcing the designers out of their comfort zones.
Jack be nimble, Jack be quick, Please get over your illness, Quick Quick Quick!
I remember all too well the lack of sleep and complete exhaustion we felt while filming the series. It's no wonder one's immune system breaks down. I hope we find Jack happy and healthy today.
This challenge is interesting, as it takes one out her comfort zone and forces her to utilize materials she may not regularly prefer. Christian's look, always a favorite of mine, was fierce. I can imagine him apprenticing for my idols, Lady Westwood and Mr. McQueen, but could you imagine them shouting out such Americanisms like "fierce" and "heinously ridiculous" in Europe? The idea makes me giggle, I love it. Bravo Christian!
I am also impressed with Kevin's look. The dress he made was adorable-- very Brigitte Bardot circa 1960-- and leggings are the only accessory I'd pair with a dress like that. I say jeans are completely overrated! I find these two outfits the strongest and most realistic.
Each season, we have a certain someone who religiously hand-applies a certain technique repeatedly to their ensembles, which ultimately makes it or breaks it for them, and this season it's Elisa's hand-stitched hems and gathered seams, a la rosettes de Angela. The bulky, multi-layered get-up was unflattering and goes against all ideal aesthetics. Can you really pair three bulky layers of fire engine red, black and navy and call that a compliment to a woman who is striving to look chic and proud?
I never intended to turn sour, and I myself faltered and got the boot, but what was Steve thinking? I believe when given a challenge, step up to the plate (and utilize the materials given), even if you risk making a "Brioche" out of your outfit.
We have the makings of a naughty children's story, featuring The Nun, The French Prostitute, The Red Dress Deceiver and The Hobo. Take your guess.
