Kenley's look is next. It's a cute short dress with flared skirt and the plaid on it is brilliant. She topped it with the upholstery fabric in a boxy coat/shrug. It creates a super modern silhouette that I personally love, especially considering the dress is much closer to her classic silhouette. The only thing I don't love is the Nicki Minaj pink wig that she used on the model. Something about it looks really cheap and forced to me.
Here we have Austin's look. It's black tulle with starry lights wrapped from bottom all the way to a circle around the face of the model. He loves the fantasy of the look and thinks it's one of his best ever creations. I have to say, it really is lovely. Seeing it creates a visceral reaction. You're sort of swept away with the romance of it and the lights actually make you feel differently about what you're seeing near the model, like when Cybil Shepard was shot through cheesecloth for Moonlighting. There's a haze about her.
And, we finish with Michael. You know, this shit is over-the-top. Michael went FOR it. What we have is a black dress with an a-line skirt. At the bodice are two protruding loops that flare at the shoulders and create a V at the waist, which is actually very flattering. There is green glow tape along a lot of the dress, all of it slimming in its shape. AND, the model's face is covered like a ninja. I approve. Michael is very happy with it.
After the show, the lights are dimmed again and the models return to the stage. They start with Kenley and she says that she wanted to push herself ("Isaac!") as she had been told to do. Pharrell loves that the lights are draped around the grid coat, liked barbed wire. Isaac loves it, particularly because there is volume at the bottom and top but the girl doesn't look huge. Georgina likes Mondo's dress, but feels that he could have placed the tracks in a more flattering way. Isaac wonders if it's actually avant garde and they start listing the things that it resembles: vintage Cadillac wings (Pharrell), Madonna/Gauthier (Georgina) and Teletubbies. Isaac thinks it looks like Teletubbies. Angela's on board immediately. Isaac loves Teletubbies. I don't understand. No, he lives for Teletubbies. How can you live for Teletubbies? Angela probably watched them in high school, so it's sentimental for her. But, Isaac Mizrahi? Living for Teletubbies? Maybe he just likes that the one had the purse. Seriously. I don't get it. They're French though, right? Maybe I get it.
