Michelle's outfit was nice enough, but yeah it didn't meet the brief. However, I think Lisa is so much prettier than Michelle's outfit. Silly comment, but...she improves anything. Also, I don't like the colors Michelle selects (and last week I hated her face print, ugh). I was so pleased she was leaving, because I find her superior trash talk tiresome to hear all the damn time. Yeah, I know that is the fault of the producers but still.
Also, Patricia gets a lot of hatred on other sites, but I actually like her. She's her own woman artistically. She has no pretensions as a clothing designer (of course, artists tend to be a bit pretentious
). And she isn't a trash talker. I also don't find her to be passive aggressive, as a popular site claims, the same site that likes to make fun of her eyes. Sure, she isn't the typical designer and neither is her clothing typical, but her work is interesting to me. I think she's a better artist than clothing designer, though. However, her dress last night was not great, and the embellishments did not improve it. As she said, she's spent, and she hurt herself by being so discombobulated by having to use Richard as an aide. That guy seems clueless.
I love Stanley's outfit, but he was such a horrible boss. I would hate that guy as boss. He was the same when he worked with Patricia. Still, I think his outfit deserved the win.
The Easter outfit was so loud. No. I would have sent that home. The shorts were cute in yellow, even though everyone hated them.
As for the Paco Rabanne look, well, it was derivative. The top part looked crafty, but it was the best part of the outfit. Layana's aesthetic is derivative and girly ("hard and soft," as she repeats ad infinitum), and I can't stand her as a person. So delusional about her talent level.
Obviously, they are not going to eliminate Michelle. She'll be allowed to come back for Fashion Week and will probably win against Stanley.
She is always claiming how her clothes rock and the hottest chicks would wear them, etc., but she has had some dumpy frumpy outfits. Her best outfits have been the plain dress that won Lord and Taylor, the pants-shirt this week, and the print challenge (though I hated her print and preferred Stanley's dress, which wasn't terribly original either).
