The Judges Top Three:
Kenley’s was the winner (and my personal favorite – love the tulle!) and her photo inspiration was a picture of a map on a wall. This look was fun, flirty, and fantastic. Leanne pulled herself together after last weeks close elimination with this classy two piece skirt and blouse combo. Her design was based off of a planter grate, which is evident in with the pleating of the skirt. Terri created a fresh and funky tunic/pant ensemble that was based off some graffiti. Her final design to me was the best interpretation of her photo.
Left: Emily Right: Jennifer
The bottom two were poor designs that left little to be desired. Jennifer’s inspiration was a photo of a clock and I can kind of see in the sleeves where she might have brought in a little from the clock, but ultimately the design was flat, dowdy and matronly. However, the judges ruled that Emily’s LBD with numerous ruffles was a bigger disgrace. Emily’s picture was long exposure of lights that led to the bright fluorescent ruffles. Unfortunately, the ruffles were in all the wrong places and the dress ended up more cha-cha-cha then chic-chic-chic. Emily was Auf’ed and that was that.
The highlight of the episode for me was Blayne teaching Tim Gunn to “Holla at your boy”. Priceless.
