I think I’m going to call this episode, “You Forget Yourself, Sir!” because the show seems to have forgotten two things, 1) that “no woman” wants to look larger in the hips and 2) Amy’s clown-esque pants were deemed a no-no. Suddenly they’re doing a circus challenge (which I couldn’t have been more excited about, frankly) and Emilio wins with a dress that’s enormous in the hips! Alright so, that being said, I really did love this dress and it really did deserve to win (for the bottom half moreso than the top imho). It’s was bizarre and beautiful and, aside from it looking like four neckties are wound around the top, it’s really wonderful.
I really liked Seth Aaron‘s look, but not blindly. Frankly I don’t really like this model for his clothes (at all) and Michael Kors’ “crazy crotch” comment was spot on. Seriously, what’s going on with these pants? I would have also preferring them in a red red and not this orange red, but the jacket is wondrous (even if we’ve already seen it from him 700 times). I actually have a very huge love of super long arms, I just adore them, and as my favorite exaggerated proportion there was nothing for me not to love about this jacket. Jay‘s design was great for me too, I don’t know why, but for some reason the judges just won’t warm up to him. The pants were great and the jacket was very Super Cute Ringmaster; what’s not to like?
Mila‘s design, I think, it’s terrible. It’s more drag meets Dracula (dragacula) than circus and the shiny fabric, the crazy collar, what seems to be a bat detail at the waist, not to mention the back … it was all just awful. We all gasped aloud when she was “in” and going to Bryant Park, our shouts of “Nooooo!” almost drowned out the news that her and Jay were going to have to scrap it out for the final spot. Sigh! Anthony‘s elimination felt, to be honest, more like a formality than anything else. The dress was kind of boring given the theme, and Michael Kors getting out of his seat to be horrified by your fabric choice is always a bad sign. Anthony was just so darn sweet though, I wish him nothing but the best.
So yeah, Emilio and Seth Aaron (FTW!) were pretty obvious choices for the top two but hasn’t Mila proven herself mediocre enough to get the boot yet? The suspense continues, I’m cheering for Jay for the final spot, since there’s nothing that Mila’s going to make that I want to see … we shall see!
