Karl Lagerfeld’s corpse was briefly reanimated to give the designers advice. His pearls of wisdom – based on 6,000 years in the business and having a kitten that costs more than the GDP of France - is to be creative, take it seriously and have fun. Also to win. I guess a kitten hanging from a branch was probably out of the question.
Thanks for the advice, dominatrix grandpa!
The next day they fit and style their models. This season the corporate makeup supplier is Laura Mercier, so expect them to pop up on a future challenge!
“Can you pay a rainbow to be less beautiful?”
C Brown enters the runway and is way, way overdressed. I get the feeling she has been saving up red carpet gowns for years and finally found a place to wear them. She opts out of shoulder, side abs and back fabric in order to show off how much younger and less baby-expelling her body is than Heidi’s.
“Everything including her bank account is skinnier!”
The judges are Mizrahi, Chapman and a purse designer from 9 West. Which is great, since this challenge focused around their shoe line!
Emilio – He has stayed pretty low key so far but he just seems old and grumpy. Nickname pending! His dress he describes as “liquid gold”, however I would call it fuschia meets mustard in the worst picnic catastrophe ever.
Wendy- her look is straight from the racks of H&M. Someone also told her Carole Radziwell is the hot, new tween trendsetter because she pairs her sad little attempt at a look with black gloves for extra pizzazz.
Aryan – His model is in a basic minidress that looks nice enough but does not remind me of the 70s or anything worth wearing. I’m guessing immunity factored into this one and he is middle of the pack bound.
Papa Elsa – his dress also looks like something found on a fitting room floor in a NJ H&M. The cloth looks cheap, the fit is dated and I still don’t get 70s from any of these. The saving grace for him is the back is interesting and unique.
Pleather – His dress is beautiful and red carpet ready. I don’t know who would wear that to a club however.
Andre – His model comes out and immediately starts undressing. All I’m seeing is a tank top and skirt, but apparently the whole look was ruined by the model tucking the shirt into her undergarments. Must be tough when the models start adding their own interpretations of your bland design. At least you have something to use as an excuse in judging!
