It is getting exciting now half way through the show! The designers are really starting to express themselves. This week the inspiration was a pair of sunglasses and the to design a wild card outfit. Lady Gaga also showed up for some inspiration. She is cool and I would imagine her to be inspiring in a creative way until she chose the red vinyl as the fabric the designers had to incorporate! All the designers freaked out.
I have to start off by saying with each episode I dislike how Coco's acting more and more. She was rude to Marilyn and she seems always ready to walk out and leave her high and dry. I love Marilyn’s work ethic and would love a partner like her, but maybe not like Coco. Coco is so rigid and sensitive and melodramatic and difficult, not to mention she now always has a sourpuss look on her face. Marilyn was finally starting to crack from her and you could see it on her face. Marilyn might have had a different collection and a different experience with a different partner, which is a bummer for her. Marilyn’s outfit was scary, and no one would ever wear that to the White House. But that is what happens when you fight the entire time instead of making a dress.
Eric has a great thing going with the silver sequins to fit his jet-set female with flash. I am so that girl and I loved his design and would totally wear it.
I am shocked that Roberto was literally napping under the table. Is he serious?!!!
Patrick’s dress was scary but it looked like everything else he designed thus far. The problem with his dress this show is that it looked cheap.
Kathy’s dress -- I wasn’t into the fabric and it was too much for me but the other judges liked it. It was a great design and a lot of work
Merle’s dress was looking interesting until it came out on the runway and the color was awful and the front had the most unflattering turkey neck looking design. It wasn’t her best piece. I didn’t like the jacket either, or the bolero with the rose. Merle has great confidence and they were more relaxed because they had immunity.
Louanna’s was pretty and glamorous. I loved the sleeves and the back was sexy.
So as it should have been Eric and Louanna were top 2.
Eric took a risk and really stepped up to the plate and stayed true to his instinct and didn’t care what galina thought which was great.
I am really looking forward to episode 6!
