Bravo: House of Nami managed to win, despite their many troubles. What put them over the edge to ultimate collection territory?
LB: They won against all odds. David made this kind of Peter Pan leprechaun dress for Caroline — and she looked like a Christmas elf! But at the last minute he draped blue fabric over the dress — which gave it a lovely depth and looked great. Dominique's eveningwear looked like baby's first cocktail dress — but she was the first to acknowledge that evening was not her forte. The best by far was Eduardo's gorgeous midnight-blue ruffle shoulder dress on Dina.
Bravo: What about Eduardo's dress for Dina was so enthralling to you guys?
LB: The drama. The finesse he had. He designs cocktail dresses and does them beautifully, although of course, we would like to see him push his boundaries a little. But Eduardo was like, "This is what I do. This is my signature." Fair enough.
Bravo: You guys sent Golnessa home this week, why did her dress warrant the elimination?
LB: The poor girl — I really believe she never realized her potential on the show. She dresses so well, but her execution was so bad. I don't know if it was bad luck, or if she was just intimidated — her ideas were chic — but they just didn't look good. Some people can be design reality stars and some people can't. She'll be just fine.
