And yes, I'm super-excited! Lifetime released the portfolios of its 20 (!) designers. There's also Facebook "Like" button, which only teaches us that being named Gunnar Deatherage will win every popularity contest.
Since I am a nerd, I did look at the portfolios though. So here are some designs that struck me as interesting. At this point, it's pretty much impossible to gauge anyone's chances, but here're some clothes that seemed cool. All pictures are from Lifetime website, disclaimer disclaimer.
She lists Vivienne Westwood as one of her favorite designers. I can tell, and also thumbs up! I'll be rooting for you, Becky.
Then we have Danielle, whose online portfolio shows many nice outfits with sharp tailoring. Go look, because none of my faves were available to grab in the Photos section. But this gives you some idea:
As many others, she listed McQueen as her favorite designer. Approve!
Cecilia, who likes Nirvana and Adele:
Some nice tailoring and inventive cuts.
Fallene. OK, while I don't love all of her designs, this one is my favorite from the bunch. Love the styling, the whole thing:
Adorable and interesting! Thumbs up.
Finally, there's Viktor, who likes Comme des Garcons, and it shows:
Could he be the avant garde guy who complains a lot about being misunderstood and is then eliminated in episode 4 because the tortured artist thing has played out? We can only hope.
So here are my early favorites. What are yours?
