Christopher’s scarf matches his first look which is a great way to show how much he transformed that tacky fabric. The reactions are phenomenal for both garments. His first piece is is one of the only looks I’ve seen on this show on which I like every element – fabric, detailing, front, back etc. The negatives are that his styling is old fashioned and everyone seems annoyed that his second looks was in black fabric which obscures his detailing during the runway.
They have a point what with the runway being at night and half the judges wearing sunglasses. Common sense, Chris
Either way, the reactions to his piece are not ambiguous.
This is a visual “wow moment”
Patricia Field actually removes her sunglasses
The moment Morpheus realizes he is not The One
Lantie is wringing her hands as she tries to defend the slivers of snakeskin adorning both her pieces. Heidi dislikes the vertical fabric blocks on both her looks and her own outfit. I personally don’t HATE the white dress, but the second look is a hot mess and the judges agree! Nothing positive is said about either look and Lantie doesn’t have much defense to offer.
“Could we judge the dress I’m wearing instead?”
Fat Morpheus gets high praise for how well the designs compliment each other, the tailoring and of course, the bustier flower. None of the judges seem to mind that he packed about 50 lbs onto his model. Or onto Laurence Fishburne.
I predict Fat is in
The judges’ private discussion touches on the genius of Chris and the attention whoring of Afrasian. Heidi has ratings to hit and wants to keep the Japaneses cartoon though so things are not looking good for the two ladies who don’t bring a lot of kook to the table. Lantie gets slammed for being more of a stylist than a designer. And I am going to change my vote from the minicap. I think Lantie probably had worse looks than Beatrice, but frankly, it’s a race to zero either way.
He totally deserved it, the duh factor here is tempered by his very genuine reaction of joy and he returns to the designers’ room and celebrates with the cutest victory dance ever.
Now who is the swish master, Skunk?
A few veneers splinter as Skunk clenches out a smile in pretense of congratulations. Skunk ironically calls Chris arrogant and that now his head will be bigger than Parsons. But he isn’t bitter.
“So…happy… for you”
