Make the judges proud!
Let’s talk quickly about this episode. I always find these first few a little hard, there are so many designers and we don’t really get to hear the judges talk about a bulk of the looks. There were a few things that impressed me on the runway and a few that were really just a yawn (like Kini’s, I expected wakka doodle from him, not a Macy’s dress). The two looks that were at the bottom were clear losers, though I didn’t think Angela’s deserved to be there as much as anyone else did (maybe in person it was worse). I’m also not sure I loved the winning look as much as the judges did, man they are gaga for Sandhya’s work. We already have our mean girls, Korina and Mitchell, though Mitchell honey, it’s hard to talk smack after you almost got kicked off. I predict a short stay on the show for fäde zu grau (Fade to grey, really?! That’s not pretentious.) and Carrie (though he look surprised me last night).
Did you see the show? Did anything strike you in that sea of designers? Oh, and one last thing, thank goodness they didn’t bring Ken back!
