Before we even got started into the 2nd episode, eco-designer Kristin (a bottom two denizen from last week) had already voluntarily jumped ship and left the show "in her best interest." Maybe she heard there would be tulle. But, we'll get to that later.
Isaac announced that teams had to design outfits for socialite and guest judge Tinsley Mortimer to attend four different events–a ladies' luncheon, an art gallery opening, a rock concert backstage party, and a charity gala–for just $40 each. And since her hair is Tinsley's trademark asset (not her money) the winning design must also be a head-to-toe winning look.
Evidently, when everyone on Team Harem told Laura not to use the red tulle, she was confused about whether they thought she should use the red tulle. Thus, this monstrosity that one industry audience member declared as "homeless" looking came to pass. What she should have done was look to Team Tube Skirt leader Anna, whose high-waisted skirt with front pleats paired with a sheer sleeveless top was one of Tinsley's faves.
Tube Skirt teammate Daniella took the blue ribbon with her strapless bustier jumper (available for purchase ($119), as well as the sheer jacket). Tinsley even offered to wear it out of the studio.
For another budget-friendly jumper, Silence & Noise makes a strapless knit one-piece ($58) that is short and simple with large pockets at the hip. You can also check out our other jumpsuit picks, if you're not feeling the shorts-and-tights vibe.
P.S. If you're wondering who Isaac "was not buying," just answer his rhetorial question: What's worse, a bad attitude or bad tulle? See ya, Laura.
