Haus of Bravo

We reflect on Calvin's future desigining maternity wear, and the grade the designs based on how easily one could dance to Earth, Wind, and Fire while wearing them in this week's blog.

In the words of Europe (and Gob from Arrested Development): It's the final countdown

This week the final four set sail on a casual boat cruise. But it's not all "I'm On A Boat" reenactments, there's a challenge in here too. The Final Four must work in teams one last time, and create outfits inspired by earth, wind, and air.

Faced with this Captain Planet challenge the designers fist bump their ring fingers together, and the collection appears magically, as though it was created by Mother Earth after a brief nap.

Well not exactly, but on the whole it was a rather drama-free festivus. Dominique decided it wasn't worth the huff and puff with Calvin and let him take the wheel as though she was Carrie Underwood and he was Jesus. And since Jeffrey and Cesar have been peas and carrots since day one, there was minimal conflict (save the rare time when Cesar called Jeffers a drag queen. A moo-moo does not a drag queen make Cesar!).

But just because the houses weren't in conflict doesn't mean some of the outfits didn't have us conflicted.

Calvin should have been let go on the first episode. But then again, he is the designated bad boy to keep up the ratings.

If he wins, I will be totally convinced that the fix was in. This is entertainment first, and fashion second.

Sending Caesar home made no sense on any planet. And what was that secret voting? the whole ending of last night's episode sucked. i will no longer be watching this program.

YIKES! What the? Even if I had the body and looks (and money) of a super model I would not be caught DEAD ... or snoozing in an alley dumpster... in anything the House of Nami presented tonight. It was as if they just bunched up and pinned randomly tons of fabric and called it a garment. Raw hems fraying? Please! She is a hack and he is a psycho.

The technical skills of Jeffrey and Caesar seem far superior to these two and they are much more in tune with the female form and highlighting it rather than hiding it with yards of chaotic whatever. Try sitting down in one of those Nami getups. Caesar's fabric dying and painting were not even mentioned by the judges while Calvin's running around the studio like a manic narcissist bully won out in the end. Shame on you judges! I don't think I will even watch the finale...... Perhaps change the name of the show to The ?Fashion? Show....

What Cesar and Jeffrey did in 45 minutes to completely re-invent their looks should've gotten them both into the finals.

This dress actually got Calvin into the finals? Unbelievable. The judges have not a clue. NO WOMAN I KNOW WOULD WEAR THAT RIDICULOUS THING.

Cesar should NEVER have been let go. Calvin should've been gone eons ago. The judges never get it right. Never.
