This was the first episode that truly made me drop my jaw. HOW ON EARTH DID KENLEY GET SPARED???
Suede--boring outfit. Yes, but it does look like a rock outfit more than a costume. The fit wasn't perfection, but the vest looked really cool in the back, IMO, and it was certainly better fitting than
KENLEY'S COSTUME OF HORROR.
Holy Mother of God, where on earth did she come up with the idea that high waisted jodphurs with a straining fly were hip hop??? And that jacket? Gah....at least it covered the hideous top. Those pants are the single worst item of clothing that I can remember seeing on PR at this stage of the game. Unbelievable. And the fact that Jerell liked his outfit and LeeAnne clearly hated hers? Why didn't they take that into account? They have before.
I hope Heidi smacks Kenley's whiny arse right off the runway--that's after Tim refuses to give her any critique in the workroom.
If Kenley makes it to Bryant Park instead of Jerell, I will go insane.
Coming back to add comments on the other outfits:
1. Korto---where was the innovation? If they thought Suede's rocker was a snore, her punk outfit was coma-inducing, IMO. "Let's see, hang some chains from a sleeveless tee. No, that's not punk enough. Better make the tee have some claw-markey stripes. Okay. Well, still not really 'punk', so let's make some jeans. Eh. I know, I'll be super innovative and BLEACH the jeans. Wow. Maybe I can trade mark the look....what? Oh, you mean that this has been done for the last thirty years or so? Uh, okay, but I still have chains!" The hair and makeup that she chose for Suede were not in keeping with his look either, IMO. I've seen punk in London and that outfit was not punk.
2. LeeAnne--Speaking of something not being it's genre..ouch. The get up she stuck Korto in was just Bad. Bad, bad, bad. I guess no one has bothered to tell he that gingham is a wee bit dated...and in a neckercheif?? WTF? I did love the top, but it did not read country until you looked at the cut-out in the back. The belt, however, just undid the country efffect and made her look ridiculous. The skirt was nice enough, but it was nothing special, nor was it country in the slightest. I was also suprised to hear the judges praise the fit because there was a bunchy place in the front and when Korto showed the rear view, the skirt was riding up across her booty.
3. Jerrell--this was the winner, IMO. It was nothing breathtakingly innovative, but it conveyed the message of 'pop star' and looked as if it could be worn on stage unlike every other outfit up there. I thought that the use of fishnet was great and while I didn't love the blue jacket, I thought it did give the dress two different looks.
I suppose next week is an evening dress/formal challenge. I'm going to go find the slides from their shows and see if any of them look like dogs.
