Daniella describes 'The Fashion Show's' first challenge and elimination.

The First Day

Wow! Has it only been one day!? I can’t believe everything that happened. Everyone is so exciting. I think some people are going to end up being really good friends and others, ahem, will drive me crazy. But OMG! Kelly Rowland and Isaac Mizrahi!?! My mom’s maiden name is Mizrachy! My family is going to die! They love him! That was the first thing that came into my head when the two of them walked out. I couldn’t believe what was actually happening and when they presented the black dress I totally blanked. I so wasn’t ready and in the last minutes when my hands were shaking and my heart was pounding I totally threw on that disgusting glue and silver powder and my dressed ended up looking like an arts and crafts project! I don’t know what I was thinking but I’m really excited for the main challenge. It took a lot of standing my ground to convince Merlin to agree with me, but I have too much integrity to let something manifest that I can’t agree with. I’m really glad I have a chance now to show who I really am. I love the colors I chose and I think they are so modern and young.

Anyway it was a really long day and I’m glad to finally be out of my heels and off my feet. I love my roommates. They are wild … especially Merlin who is walking around in his underwear and I am way to distracted to think about fashion right now. Good night!

The First Elimination

This morning in our last two hours, I cannot believe James-Paul and Lydia pulled it off. I was shocked that we were the winning team. I don’t think I was “glaring.” I was just shocked and confused about everything coming out of that boy’s mouth,  and honestly his act is getting old.

I am sad though that my model didn’t taker off her jacket. That asymmetrical top was amazing and I don’t know why my outfit wasn’t recognized at all by the judges when my castmates were all raving about it. I also threw together a necklace out of bobby pins and fabric buttons. I haven’t really figured out exactly what the judges are looking for and I’m really confused about the audiences taste-crowd favorite!?

Anyway, I’m back at the suite and I love the rest of my roommates. I never expected to come here and make friends in this competition and I am laughing so hard I have to cross my legs. Tomorrow is the photo shoot. Gotta get my drama queen beauty sleep. G’night.

Listen up Ed, I dont know who you think you are but yoy are so wrong and I have no doubt in my mind that you know nothing about fashion. The show has just begun and people have already started to say nasty things.

The show got off to an interesting start and I can tell a lot more about all the designers. Daniella, I can see from your first outfit that you have so much to offer and show the world. You are the youngest, but the smartest and best! Merlin is so grose with his lame and rediculous clown outfits! You hold yoursef together so well and look amazing. LOVE YOU GIRL GO TO THE FINISH AND FIGHT ALL U WANT!!

I loved the lip ring you were wearing? Where did you get it?

Next time you're part of a team and are not the team leader, please remember that you are NOT the team leader. You tried to take over Merlin's role as team leader and were deservedly put in your place, although Merlin's comment about "male domination" was WAY out of line. I have a feeling you're going to try to sabotage other designers just to get ahead in the competition and draw attention to yourself. Maybe you're jealous of Merlin's flair attracting so much attention that you believe YOU should be drawing. Reality shows love to assign a bad guy/girl role to one cast member; you're going to be painted as "The B****" of this season's shows if you keep fighting with your fellow designers.

be nice. yelling louder than someone who is already yelling just makes two people yelling loud and noone is being heard....dont lower yourself, let your creativeness do the talking....try to ignore "the magician" he is one of those types who has confused his eccentric behavior as creative behavior...he needs to get over himself.

You need to work on your team work skills and on designing for the modern woman. Sorry, but your "classic" instincts were way off in this competition. The judges based their decision on the total design, not whether your model took off the jacket or not. Your flight attendant colors were horrible, as was your choice of navy, which is a color my grandmother preferred. Besides, navy belongs to nuns. Black is elegant and has lasting power. You might not have liked Merlin or his taste but he was project leader. Live and learn, but you came off as a shrew, which I'll attribute to Bravo's editing - this time.

Sorry Daniella, your design was very old and dated. Merlin is pretty 'in your face' kind of person but so far he designs are interesting.

You were the only sane one in your group. I already admire you for standing your ground with Merlin and your "smart" choice of "navy". That color goes with everything and should have made a great basis for the others to create whatever color/look to go with the jacket.. Merlin seems a nut case that just leaped off of a gay pride float with all of the screaming visual and auditory passive-aggressive intimidation he could muster up to get noticed and try to intimidate others. His extreme attention-seeking behavior is just a how a person like him deals with low self-esteem. Talent speaks for itself. He seems to have to scream, yell, and get in people's faces to get them to notice him. If he had to present his fashions behind a curtain where no one met him, he'd be a moot point.. So, you and the others, move on!! Block people like him out... It's his strategy to get noticed... and, intimidate.. His "male dominance" comment offended more than just females/the contestants, the viewers. He made many feel like it was 100 years ago... Hopefully, the judges and others will ignore his obnoxious pleas for attention and look at the rest of the contestants.. Talent should speak for itself.. not be "screamed out" ... He will never create real clothes that people will want to actually buy/wear.

Hi, um...what is your name again? Oh, yeah Daniella (I had to scroll back up to find it). We will see how far your Narcissistic personality takes you, and its a pretty strong personality for a 22 yr old...who got your panties in a wod (lol...just kiddin). Well, you sure will help the shows rating and for that I see you being around for a bit...but, I gotta tell you 'GIRL' you are not a true designer.
