Judging the Judges: Erin vs. Heidi vs. Nina

Posted on August 26, 2011

We have a feeling, given the crack-y nature of last night’s judging, that no one really feels like complimenting any of them right now. Well, don’t you worry, kittens. We worked in some bitchiness for you.

Erin Wasson wears Michael Kors.


We don’t care if a model goes all disheveled and messy looking when she’s not working. A lot of them do. It makes a lot of sense if your every working moment has to do with obsessing over every detail of your looks. But honey, you’re not home watching Project Runway on the couch with your model friends, eating pretend snacks. You’re on television. A little more effort, please. Nina is disgusted by you.

Also, your entire outfit looks like it was made from cheap satiny bedsheets. Score: 2/10.

Heidi Klum wears Michael Kors jumpsuit, HKNB sneakers, and Wildlife by Heidi Klum jewelry.


“Buy my sneakers! They go terribly with sequined jumpsuits!”


It’s a nice enough garment, but there’s not a chance in hell we’d give her a high score for such an obviously ridiculous pairing. Score: 5/10.

Nina Garcia wears 3.1 Phillip Lim fall 2011 paired with Azzedine Alaia shoes.

Nina was obviously all, “SNEAKERS?!? With this stunning Philip Lim and belt? Please. I’ll wear a pair of lace-up sandals. Think of it as an homage to sneakers. That’s the best you’re getting out of me.”

3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2011 Collection


She’s definitely bringing some glam to the judging panel this season. She had a fondness for these very played-down chic little  looks in the past, but she’s obviously shooting for “fierce” now. Score: 9/10.

THE GARCIANATOR TRIUMPHS OVER TWO MODELS! What an upset! Will the world of models ever recover from this turn of events? Tune in next week!

      Whenever I saw Heidi come out wearing those clodhoppers with that jumpsuit… Well, let’s just say I poured myself another drink.

      I must have turned to my mom three times during the judging last night to gush over Nina’s outfit.

        I can’t say I even noticed it during the show, but the sleeves look like astroturf that still somehow managed to die and turn brown!   Wearing ridiculous things just because it’s “fashion” still looks ridiculous.

      Total agreement. Model guest girl put in no effort and the Kluminator broke her own challenge rules by wearing something THAT DOES NOT GO WITH HER SNEAKERS

      “Tlo said: But honey, you’re not home watching Project Runway on the couch with your model friends, eating pretend snacks. You’re on television. A little more effort, please.”

      Heh-LOOOOO! And this is a perfect illustration of one of the annoying and unfair advantages those genetic lottery winners enjoy: If this bitch forgets to do her hair, most people would say, ‘poor girl. It’s a shame she doesn’t own a hairbrush.’ But if one of us lesser mortals left the house with the same hair, people would say, ‘What a pig. The least she could do is comb her hair.’ I’m glad you boys are on the case.

      That jumpsuit – sorry I don’t care if it’s Madame Kors – it makes Heidi look dumpy. It looks like it should be terricloth.

      As for Nina, yes, the hands-down winner. But I wonder how many people were sent to the emergency room after contact with those fabulous porcupine sleeves.

        But a 30ish model?  Honey, you’re on TV, the lights are hot, you don’t wear thermal underwear for a top, and your jammies bottom, even if they’re silky and you think they’ll pass.

        I’ve only been on TV a couple of times, but I got out of my sleepwear for it.

      If you ask me, those sneakers go with absolutely nothing under the sun. They’re huge and clunky and dowdy and astonishingly unattractive. Does anyone know if they’re comfortable enough to work out in? Because that would be their only redeeming trait.

      Heidi just looked ridiculous.

      I would have liked to see Nina in the white version of that dress, just to change it up a little, but I thought she looked beautiful and glam.

      Ole Whatshername threw on a white jacket over her pajamas and (mistakenly) hoped that we wouldn’t notice. She sure didn’t take time to comb her hair. I would like a closer look at her bracelet, though–it looks interesting.

      I actually laughed when Heidi came out in that get-up, which was the highlight of the show for me. I am such a poor fashion minion that I do not know who that judge is, but it makes me laugh now to see that skinny chick wearing elastic waist pants. Nina’s top looks a little chain mail, but I guess that’s appropriate for Warrior Nina.

        Hey, I still don’t know who the hell that judge is.  All I know is the
        waistband on those pajama bottoms look like the crotch was too low so she rolled
        it over and the inside is showing, and her hair looks like ass.  I mean,
        not only does it look like it hasn’t been combed for a month but it
        looks like it needs the ends trimmed to get rid of the split ends.  It’s
        just nasty looking.

        Who the hell is she again, and why was she there?

        • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_D3D3I75B234TXVLWNKF4GKWUIM T

          Erin Wasson is a relatively high-profile model, and she has done some “designing.” Her personal style is definitely on the sloppy side — when she’s not all made up for runway, Victoria’s Secret, or Maybelline, she usually seems to be in way-short cut-offs and a sloppy T. I am guessing she showed up like that for PR and the producers forced her into whatever Michael Kors they had lying around. 

    • http://karensbooksandchocolate.blogspot.com/ Karenlibrarian

      What the hell are on Nina’s sleeves?  At first I thought it was a fuzzy shrug but up close it just looks painful.  She still looks fabulous though. 

      Why couldn’t Heidi wear the sneakers at the Armory during the race, and save the high heels for the runways show?  Makes no sense.  Those sneakers with the sequined jumpsuit make it look like she’s taking the subway to a party, and carried her shoes in a bag.  Hideous.

        Excellent point!  It truly is bizarre she was wearing uber heels to the track and then those sneaker things on the runway.  So odd…. like the entire episode.

        • JillK

          I’m amazed that she didn’t leave divots in the track.  That’s the reason street shoes aren’t allowed in most of those places.

      Klum of Doom (don’t remember which contestant said that last night, but I thought it very appropriate!)  – can’t think who would look good in that jumpsuit – it’s the Fug, and those icky sneaks just make it worse. I like her hair and make-up though.

      Model person with ratty hair and pajamas – what TLo said.

      Nina – glorious. I love that top – whatever is it made of? I kept thinking those spiky things were hard and would poke people? Upon further inspection, looks like some sort of astro-turfy hybrid. Surely not – must be some sort of furry stuff? Anybody know?

      Thank you Heidi for illustrating so well the point that sneakers should be worn with jeans or khakis or to the gym – not with sparkly jumpsuits, or cocktail dresses, or maxi-dresses.

      The whole runway was a disaster, and it started with her coming out in that outfit.

      The whole episode was completely ill-conceived.

      Nina really is bringing it fashion wise this season.  My only complaint is her hair.  She has a gorgeous head of hair, but I just wish she would go a little shorter around her face.  The long layers are really dragging her down.

      Heidi looked absolutely absurd – the living embodiment that even the genetically blessed have their limits. That jumpsuit dragged her down, looked like it was made of something incredibly heavy and saggy, and did NOT go with . . . sneakers.

      Erin Wasson – well, T Lo said it all: girl, you are on the television! We can actually SEE you sitting there in your comfy elastic-waist pants and cotton rib and oversize vesty thing. No color for miles, no facial expression (saving it all for the runway, doll?), and nothing to contribute to the situation at all. Meh. Oh, and running a comb through your hair, Erin? Do give it a try.

      “Pretend snacks” … *snort* When I saw Erin’s hair, I wondered why the producers didn’t shove her into the Garnier room before letting her go in front of a camera. She looks like a “before” shot in one of their before and after commercials.

      And there’s something terribly awkward about pairing [most] sneakers with anything chic. People have talked themselves into thinking that it looks fine, but it rarely looks anywhere close to fine. Usually it makes a nice outfit look dumpy. Case in point: Heidi’s ensemble.

    • JBeauD

      This entire episode had a surreal quality to it, starting out with Cecilia gracelessly walking off into the bleachers.  And then the injustice of the team leader selection process.  I could only guess that they wanted to select those contestants that had the best chance of outrunning their enraged underling team-mates.  (Patently unfair – part of me was quite surprised when porcelain Olivier didn’t shatter into a million pieces when he hit the ground.) What’s next in the selection process - bench-pressing their sergers?  Then the bullying and snarking and crying, combined with the whackadoo judging.  My head was swimming by the time we got to the judges panel, without even the benefit of a trip to the T-Lounge.  (Tant pis pour moi!)  And all through the judging I was trying to place Erin Wasson.  While I finally accepted consciously that I had no idea who hell she was, in the back of my mind a little voice was crying”Look, it’s Mary Woronov!”  I half expected her to whack Michael Kors over the head with a frying pan…

      I find it interesting that the judges wearing fellow judge Micheal Kors, are the ones that look odd. He just does not impress me as a designer.

      Nina’s sleeves look like a budding 8th grader’s attempt to be goth. Ick.

      Nina earns her water and celery by knowing how to style fashion.  Models are paid to be dressed, not to know how to dress.  There is a difference and it shows in this post.

      I love Nina’s outfit, but I think she needs a new hairstyle, maybe a tad shorter. It looks a bit ratty

      I really thought Heidi was wearing clown shoes when she walked out.  I was so gobsmacked by this development (well, and the rest of the show) that I didn’t even notice what Nina was wearing.  Not that I’m crazy about that top either. Model, shmodel…not even worth commenting.

      Maybe I just feel bad about yelling, “Oh My God, He’s such a BITCH!” at the TV in front of the children (10 and 14).  

      And Yes, the Duchess does seem somewhat subdued this season.

      Oh, and have a plan in place for Irene.  Having weathered Rita and Ike, I’ll just say, once you have your plan, have a Hurricane for me- you know, the drink, though we in drought-stricken Texas would like to have the non-life-threatening real thing.  ( Apparently Baby Jesus hasn’t gotten around to Governor Goodhair’s prayer request).  We’ll be thinking of all of y’all along the Eastern coastline.

      I’m totally not kidding when I say I have a tablecloth I bought at Target, made out of the exact same fabric as Erin Wasson’s vest. Check it out! http://www.target.com/p/Domino-Tablecloth-Linen/-/A-13274470

      And Heidi looks absolutely hideous. A jumpsuit? A *sequin* jumpsuit, no less? With sneakers???? Just atrocious.

    • http://twitter.com/ShelfAfterlife Shelf Afterlife

      That is the dumpiest sequined outfit I have ever seen.  And with those shoes… WTF?!?!  It’s funny that the two models who look all whacktastic are wearing Michael Kors.

      You know, sometimes good taste trumps modelly good looks. La Chica takes it by a landslide.

      What is great about Nina is that  being a average looking women with  attitude and great style she can out shine everybody in the room.

      I had never seen the Wasson (to my knowledge) and was mesmerized by her face. She is very pretty. But looking at the outfit in the photo I was pleased when you identified it as bedsheets. I have slept on those. And she looks kind of sleepy, too. I did notice and love Nina’s porcupine glitter though–a perfect judge’s outfit. A warning. Heidi… well, I didn’t mind. She doesn’t always choose her outfits wisely and i think she was trying to be witty and encouraging by wearing that getup.

      Why didn’t Heidi wear her sneakers at the track??? That would have at least made it a bit less cringe-inducing. Though it was pretty funny to see her run in heels.

        i wondered about that too. it seemed sort of rude to show up in chic stilletos when all the little people had to wear her ugly sneakers.

      Hey guys!    Hope you don’t lose electricity!   Be well.

      I would be 100% OK with Erin if the elastic waistband was covered by her top.  Or, you know, if the waistband wasn’t elastic at all.  Otherwise I though she looked lovely.

      Erin was a stronger judge on America’s Next Top Model.

      i agree, the disheveled look is not working for erin. heidi is a god and nina is such an inspiration… Im interning at Marie Claire this fall and hope to meet her!

      What’s up with Erin’s hair?  Looks like she needs a really good conditioner.  

    • Anonymous

      Nina – seems like she had more makeup on this week, with a little more color in her face. Noticeable in the last picture. Very flattering, she should do this all the time. Natural is good – but when you get to a certain age (and I am older than she is) you need to add a touch of color. And I think her hair is beautiful, but she needs to condition it or brush it or something. Did you notice how much better it looked during the Nina challenge, especially when she came out from behind the scrim? Maybe she needs some argan oil.

      Erin – she should be placed under arrest for defiling her genetic gifts. And who knew you could buy designer elastic waist pants?

      Heidi – there is nothing left to say. She is unbelievable and I don’t mean that in a good way.

      Would anyone like to have a discussion about what the deal is about Nina never wearing a bra? I find that strange.

      And as an update – I live in the same metropolitan area as TLo, and as of 2:00 PM Saturday, it’s just starting to rain a little bit – that’s all so far.

        yes, i meant to comment on that remark by nina.  i think it’s f-ing awesome that nina announced on national tv that she never wears a bra!  i myself haven’t worn one since the nineties, but i’m not on tv, and i’m a self-proclaimed hippie geezer lady.
        live in comfort, i say.

          I missed that remark. Does that mean she’s not nursing? How could a nursing mother (the baby isn’t that old is he/she) not wear a bra all the time?

          I’m surprised no one else has brought it up. SignLadyB – actually, Tim said it in the workroom during the Nina challenge and she confirmed. I forget with whom they were speaking…anyway, personally, I think it’s extremely strange. Although I did have a friend once (over 50 yrs. old) who didn’t wear one as she was an A cup and just didn’t feel she needed to and so didn’t. This is utterly amazing to me as I am much further down the alphabet – but I really think Nina should. I just can’t fathom this. Even the Klumster wears a bra…

      Heidi’s jumpsuit looks like it is weeping out of shame to be paired with those sneakers.

      Yeah, to Mskimberly–my first thought was elastic waist? Really? Even I don’t do those anymore and I’m an older heavier lady.

    • Kathleen Gillies

      Is that model judge (sorry, name is forgettable) wearing elastic waist pants?  Really?

        You can find her name in the post. Just scroll up.

      uh to be fair not only is that Erin Wasson’s signature look, she’s kinda famous for it. her style is pretty much what got her her own fashion line. it would make absolutely no sense if she turned up on PR all glammed out. i am suprise T-Lo doesn’t know this….

        Well, they’re being identified as Michael Kors pants….and they sure look like elastic waist to me. That’s fine for sweatpants, yoga pants, etc. – maybe she was trying to fit in with the athletic theme. But how could they be by Michael Kors and why is she wearing them on national TV?

      Nina’s top was awesome!

    • Margot Brose

      *cheering loudly from the sidelines*: NI-NA! NI-NA! NI-NA! She always looks a hundred times more natural and comfortable than her counterparts even when she’s wearing outfits like this, and that just oozes class that Heidi lacks sometimes.

      Maybe it was just the contrast, but Ms. Garcia was at LEAST a 9.5.

    • sweetlilvoice

      I found that Erin to look like a strange version of Keira Knightley. And yes her outfit sucked, she also seemed to look pissed at all time. Did Nina’s jacket has spikes on it? I couldn’t tell.

      Erin: Looks like she just rolled out of bed. For that, she doesn’t even deserve a score. 0/10

      Heidi: Well, it’s a sequined jumpsuit. Paired with sneakers. 5/10 but only because she’s still Heidi Klum.

      Nina: I’m struggling to keep my eyes open long enough see this supposed fierceness. 7/10 because she’s pretty chic, but I swear if I ever see her out on the street, I will look her up and down and then yawn really big so she can see how bored I am.

      Is that an elastic waistband in Erin’s pants? Seriously?

    • Anonymous

      When my kids were between one size of clothes and the next, we always bought up a size….and with pants, we would fold the band over so that they wouldn’t fall off their hips.  It works fine for a 3 year old.  I swear to gawds that is what Erin did with her pants.  It is awful.
