At the runway, Heidi greets all of the designers. Hey, guess what everybody? One day you're in and the next you're out. It's just a rule of life. Somebody had to tell us. I'm so thankful that it was Heidi. She reminds everyone that they were designing dresses for the Campbell's Address Your Heart Program. She introduces Michael, Nina, and Georgina Chapman, the designer and co-founder of Marchesa. Oh my God, she's gorgeous. And, she's married to Harvey Weinstein. They must have so much in common and love each other for all of the exact correct reasons. Heidi says that Marchesa gowns have been worn by the likes of Anne Hathaway, Halle Berry, and Jennifer Lopez.
The show begins with Jonathan's gown. It's a sleeveless, high-necked, floor-length gown in maroon. Apparently, someone decided to follow another color story. There are different vertical tiers on the skirt that provide a lot of volume. There's a narrow belt at the waist with the Campbell's branding. The tiers are all sorts of asymmetrical and I suppose he did that to give it a couture, fashion-forward (I hate that phrase!) look, but I'm not sure about this. It actually looks very messy on the lower half. Jonathan, of course, is thrilled with it. He's also happy that his model seems so happy with it.
Here's Emilio's dress. It's a short, strapless empire waisted dress in flowing fabric. There's a band of Campbell's branding to create the empire waist. Emilio says that he let his client take the lead. How nice of him. Now, I'm really not trying to be rude, but I don't remember his model being pregnant. This fits her body like maternity wear. I think it's just the shape of her body and her posture, but no. This does not work. She looks incredibly uncomfortable in it too. I don't think he considered his client very much. This just looks all wrong on her, even beyond the not flattering part. She just doesn't look like the right woman to be inside this dress.
