Runway Recap: Stella Exits Like A (Courteous) Bat Out Of Hell

September 4, 2008 by Bryn

Here's the latest from SheFinds writer Casey:

This week's challenge was enough to make Kenley cry… a couple of times. Maybe they aren't letting these kids get enough sleep!
 
Diane Von Furstenberg, icon and staple wrap dress creator, stepped in as both the challenge deliverer and a guest judge. The designers were tasked with creating a look inspired by her line, which is in turn inspired by the woman who happens to be a 30s/40s, globe-trotting (from Berlin to Shanghai) sophisticate spy. This seemed tailor-made for Kenley (who wept with adoration when she met DVF).

Within what seemed like minutes, Terri had a pair of tweed pants done. Seriously, is she some kind of warp-speed machine?  Kenley got to work on an Asian inspired floral shift and got poor reviews from her competitors. We heartily disagreed – we like what we see. We we undecided and leaning toward a thumbs down on Korto's dizzy black and white striped dress. Then we saw token straight guy Joe's concoction and our jaws dropped. Joe, Joe, Joe – are you TRYING to get yourself eliminated?  Pink snakeskin-y blouse with a big hole in the back?  Even brighter pink cumberbund?  Stop the insanity!

This week's runway was pretty dramatic… Leanne (who had immunity and could have just relaxed) knocked it so far out of the park it will never be seen again. Her dress was elegant, impeccably made, surprising, beautiful, fit in well with the lookbook… I could go on and on. Again I have to question though — how can things this glam come from such a frumpy gal? She needs a makeover to match her designs.
 
Now for the bad and the ugly…
While we liked Kenley's dress a lot, we decidedly did not like her attitude.  Do NOT talk back to the judges! Kenley, didn't you watch last week's episode??  She was very lucky there were some bad designs on that runway.
image 
Blayne, doll face… you are losing your tan and maybe with it your mind. Looking like an extra from Olivia Newton John's "Let's Get Physical" video, Blayne presented the judges with pantaloons. Big poufy pantaloons. And he made it THROUGH! Was not even in the bottom 3. This was our first shock of the evening and would not be our last.
image 
Stella, who I have come to adore because she is a crazy character, showed an odd pants/vest/cape ensemble that DVF said reminded her of Dracula and Michael Kors said was "more Transylvania than Shanghai."
 
Token Straight Joe's outfit was an out-and-out disaster. It was mismatched, poorly made (DVF said it looked "homemade," yikes!), unflattering, and weird. There was no question who was getting auf-ed this week. Bye bye straight guy.
 
Oh how wrong we were. We were shocked, appalled, dumbstruck… Joe lives to design another day! Instead it was biker-chic, leathah-obsessed Stella who went home. And she was gracious as she said her goodbyes. I for one will miss her. *sniff*

Who do you think should have gotten the boot?  Did the right designer go home? Sound off in the comments section below.
