Runway Recap: A Boring Bride Moves On To Bryant Park

Here's the latest from SheFinds reader Casey:

Last night's Runway was a bittersweet one.  We lost one designer but we got a sneak peek at the final collections.  First, though, we had the obligatory Tim Gunn home visits, which feel kind of like "The Bachelor" home visits without the family dinner and gratuitous making out.
 
Back in New York, Tim tells the designers that their face-off challenge will be to create a bridesmaid dress to go with the wedding gowns they've made for their collections.  We're interested to see how they interpret this, as most brides' interpretation is dreadful.  Will they go chic or will they go bridesmaid-y?

Jerell's bride looks like she's wrapped in one of those old fashioned rolls of copier paper, all crinkly, with a bunch of orchids on her head.  Michael Kors calls it garish (kiss of death 1) and "overwrought times 20,000."

Kenley's bride is feathery awesomeness, though Michael Kors mentions that it's reminiscent of a McQueen.  Kenley, in Kenley fashion, has a snotty retort.  When will this girl ever learn?  She's only here by the skin of her teeth thanks to that attitude!   Heidi calls her work "crazy good."  I must admit I like Kenley's work, though I think she needs to be punched sometimes.

While we do question Leanne's panti-liner winged bodice, her bridesmaid dress is actually beautiful… and her wedding gown has pockets!  Perfect for… well perfect for something a bride might need to have handy.

Korto's interchangeable bride and bridesmaid are kind of ridiculous with a lot going on, not to mention that the wedding gown is wholly unflattering — seriously would someone get married in this?   
 
Leanne and Kenley move on to Bryant Park — that Kenley is a lucky lucky girl, we hope she appreciates that fact.
 
The final decision comes down to which kiss of death is worse: garish or boring?  I vote for garish but others vote for boring.  Garish wins (or loses) and the debate is settled and Jerell is sent home.  Onto Bryant Park!!
