Seeing Geoffrey and Cyndi again is a nice palate-cleanser from last week's disgusting mess.
I have to admit Prajie's comment about "everyone's outfit is going somewhere different. Some people are going to a wedding, some people are going to the strip club, and some people are taking the garbage out" made me laugh.
I watched the After the Show interviews on YouTube and found them interesting.
Octavio was wearing a version of his oversized hoodie that was done in a black quilted fabric. It was actually pretty cool looking. Ironically, the fabric was similar to, or maybe the exact fabric as, his "brought from home" fabric that Christian suggested he use instead of the brocade. If he had used it, I don't think he would have gone home.
Octavio said he's "still trying to figure out what cozy chic is." And Christian was like "I know, right?" LOL Prajje wasn't wrong about the looks being all over the place.
Octavio's comments about the winning look and the grandma cardigan outfit were pretty salty. He said the winning look was resort wear and the granny cardigan outfit was something you could find multiple versions of at Marshall's or H&M. Christian agreed with him on both counts but said maybe the judges liked them because they were well-executed.
Zeyden totally stood behind his design and wouldn't even admit that it didn't fit well. It was kind of weird. I get standing up for yourself, but I find it strange that he couldn't say that he was proud of the concept while admitting to execution issues.
They definitely got rid of the right two. Octavio's design was sort of tacky. I liked the jacket, but the lingerie underneath was a big miss. I felt bad for Mimi having to model it. Zayden's was SO bad. Ill=fitting, bad design, terrible fabric. None of it was flattering and I don't think it would have looked good on ANY size model.
I liked Aaron's and Kristina's designs this week. They were both beautifully made and fit the challenge.
Yeah. I thought Octavio's lingerie was rather gratuitous (though in his defense, he did wear male garters with his socks when he wore the oversized hoodie on the After the Show interview, so maybe garters are an integral part of the look in his mind 😂).
Seeking form amidst the void.
But if that's not possible, gimme a Margarita...shaken, not stirred...and hold the salt, please.
