I thought that the instructions for this assignment must not have been very clear because obviously Heidi thought they were supposed to make a travel outfit and some of the designers thought they could make just anything a jet-setter would wear, like a party dress. That seems unfair to me; the instructions ought to be clear.
It also seemed unfair to me that Uli was slammed for making a dress that would only work someplace tropical, albeit international, but Michael's outfit was specific to the Hamptons and no one said anything about wearing it in Rome, Paris, Tokyo, etc, where it clearly would not have worked. It seems they were judged by different standards. At least Uli actually lives someplace her dress would have worked.
However, the judging did succeed in zeroing in on the two most hideous outfits. As Laura said a few weeks ago, taste is a real problem for both Kayne and Angela. I would have liked to see them both go, but Angela's outfit was absolutely the antithesis of international sophistication. I think she is a pig's ear and is going to stay one.
