PR All Stars: Anthony and Kara

Posted on January 16, 2012

We had the same problem with Anthony’s dress that we had with Michael’s; namely that it was way too attention-seeking for an opera gala.

Several readers defended Michael’s dress by attempting to claim that no one wears gowns to the opera anywhere and that there really isn’t any such thing as an opera gown anymore. We disagree. We’ve covered red carpet at various Metropolitan Opera events (here, here, here, here, and here. Check that last link to see which PR alum showed up on the red carpet at the Met Opera. Not a coincidence, we think.). Obviously, there are no hard and fast rules, but generally speaking the gowns are demure (in comparison to average red carpet wear) and devoid of show-business frippery like feathers, an abundance of sequins, or too much skin showing. We maintain that any gal who showed up at an opera gala wearing either Michael’s or Anthony’s dress would stand out like a sore thumb – and not in a good way.

 

But we’ll say this: it really is a dramatic, well-made gown. Many of our issues with this look have to do with the styling, of which, Anthony, bless, is not a master. Every single acccessory here would have to be ditched to make this look acceptable, as far as we’re concerned. Even then, the plunging neckline is way too much for the opera.

 

We would have liked this dress so much better if one thing was different: the print. Try as we might, we just can’t find it in ourselves to like it. Too washed out and a little dated, frankly.

And that’s a shame because if she’d picked a more modern, trendy print, we’d bet the judges would have fallen all over this dress. Our take is somewhat similar to theirs, however: we’ve seen this dress before, many times. It’s, in many ways, a standard Carolina Herrera or Oscar de la Renta dress. That’s why the print was so crucial here. It’s a beautiful shape (although the waist is placed a bit high), a classic in many ways, and utterly appropriate for an opera gala, but it just doesn’t make the wearer look particularly stylish. We suspect Kara heard “opera” and pictured a society matron type, which is both exactly who you’d see at an opera gala and exactly who would be wearing a dress like this. On that level, she actually nailed it. But on the “design competition” level, this falls very short of the mark.

        Heh, not to mention “opera gloves designed by someone who’s never been to an opera.”  Looks way more Cruella DeVil to me.  Maybe Cruella scheming from the opera balcony with those little glasses in one hand and a Tiparillo in the other.

      Guys, I’m a tad confused… I get the objections to Micheal’s because it is very attention-seeking.  But can you tell you what it is about Anthony’s here which is too much?  Because it seems to me that it would fit in with the gowns in the links above.  (Not with that styling, certainly, but the gown itself)

        Looking through the previous posts, it doesn’t appear opera gowns are typically sternum-bearing. There’s just SO much skin being shows (not to mention the boobtasticness of the neckline) that it doesn’t seem to fit with the more covered up nature of the other gowns.

            Well, it’s a big thing, not a little thing.  Any dress that you can’t sit in for three hours without having to worry about a nip slip is a problem.  And, yes, there should be something slightly decorous about the dress–elegance, not sexiness, is the key note.  You’ve already married your money and the sex is on stage, not in the boxes.

            That said, I really like the dress–one of my faves–so I’m glad it made top three, even though Anthony has never impressed me.

              It may not be physically portrayed on the stage, but opera is very much about sex. Check out the plots of Le Nozze di Figaro, La Traviata, La Bohème, Norma, and especially Carmen, and tell me there’s no sex in opera.

              I didn’t say it was a little thing, just clarifying that it was the only issue — Wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing something else.  I will freely admit I have an odd concept of neckline depths due to years of wearing low ones constantly. 

              I don’t know that I’d like it with a higher one — but you could go narrower with the plunge which would minimize it more.

              With a minor tweak to the neckline (or a subtle lining) this would look fine on a lot of women.

              I am a proud owner of wee little boobs, so I could imagine myself looking elegant and understated in that dress. Woman without cleavage can get away with wearing super low cut dresses. It’s our reward for not having the aforementioned cleavage.

              It’s not overdone (except the accessories) and hasn’t a ruffle on it anywhere. This is much higher than Anthony’s past taste level.

      • Guest

        Is it just me or does it look like there’s double-sided tape holding that dress on?  I’m confused as I think the DST is verboten in, at least, the original variation of PR, but a dress like that sort of requires it.  Especially if you plan on sitting down at any point, or moving your arms, or encountering a light breeze.

        • http://twitter.com/Sinead_Doyle Sinéad Doyle

          I noticed that too. Wasn’t there “controversy” about Michael C using tit-tape in season 8? Was this addressed in this episode (no current PR on tv here so I’m getting all my knowledge from this blog)?

        Anthony’s model sure has some plastic tittays holding that dress up, which is probably why its reading too ‘attention seeking’. No woman with a BMI as low as hers would ever have boobs that round and perky.

    • http://pianofingernails.blogspot.com/ Laura King

      I just can’t get past Anthony’s model’s breasts. They are amazing. AMAZING.

      • Anonymous

        I’d bet my lunch money that they are silicone, which makes them more distracting than amazing.  Usually, when you see perfect circles of breasts, that is the result of an implant.  Natural breasts, even perky young ones, slope into their shape.  What I don’t get is why?  Don’t models need less breasts?  Oliveireaioli, anyone?

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          You sometimes get that shape with a breast lift as well.  I was told that you have to decide on that or the more natural slope and they sometimes just rearrange the natural tissues.

            Some breast lifts involve implants–so same difference.

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              But you don’t have to have an implant to get that shape from a lift was what I meant — you can just rearrange the natural tissue into it.

            • Anonymous

              I don’t think so.  Muscles aren’t shaped that way and fat doesn’t hang that way.  Other than milk ducts, that’s pretty much your breast tissue. You can get a perkier look from a lift (kind of the point), but that particular set of boobs are glaringly artificial–i.e. they’re going to look straight up when you’re lying on your back whereas the real deal move toward the side.

              An MD friend of mine taught me to look for plastic-surgery tells–and, boy, once you can see them, you can’t not see them.  So, the model has fake boobs and pretty poorly done boob job.  Mostly because she’s so thin, so no fat to help disguise the implant.  

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

              I agree, those just don’t look natural.  I can’t stop staring at them.  They look like oranges stuffed under her skin, they’re so round and high and NOT MOVING.  They look like Barbie’s breasts.  

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              No, you can rearrange the fat — I keep trying to decide which way I want mine:)  I know the half-sphere looks fake, but that kinda works for me.

            • Anonymous

              Fat is affected by gravity–it’s not the same as a silicon-filled pouch.  I’d be wary of any doctor who tells you that you’ll get the half-grapefruit effect without an implant.  

              My own take is that as long as my breasts are healthy, I’m happy with them.  But watching women in your family die of breast cancer will do that to you.  Just never been an area of vanity for me, one way or another.    I’m much fussier about my face.

        • http://twitter.com/OperaSickness Opera Sickness

          That’s what I think too.  My 23 year old boobs are not that perky now, and I’m pretty sure they weren’t even that perky when I was 13.  Hers are also a bit too round seeming to be natural.  I’m glad someone brought this up because I am a crazy person and the models super surgical boobs were the most memorable part of the episode for me and I wanted to discuss.

        • Anonymous

          Yeah, they’re fake.  You don’t get that bolt-on look without implants–you can get a push-up bra for natural boobs to move ‘em up–but they don’t have that sort of weird cleavage.  Natural breasts at any age are teardrop shaped–fuller at the bottom than on the top. Fakes look like half grapefruit–particularly when there’s no body fat.

          Actually depending on how heavy they are, you can get natural ones to do it with the right foundation — it’s just very uncomfortable

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

            But I think that’s the point, there IS no foundation on that dress — they are defying gravity in a very un-natural manner.  

            • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

              With the full back on the dress, you could install a foundation in it that would work quite well.  But I don’t imagine Anthony would spend the time constructing one when he only had a day to make it.

        They are definitely implants – two orange halves stuck under a flat surface. I found them distracting enough to take away from the look of the dress. Everything draped and flowed beautifully  except those puppies.

      If the cleavage were moderated a bit, and the accessories sorted, I think Anthony’s gown is very opera-wearable. Classic, elegant and very beautiful. 

      Kara’s dress on the other hand is old-fashioned, ugly and twee. The black ribbon is dreadful, the bodice is blah and the high waist is so unflattering. Unless she heard maternity opera gown?  And that print?  Sweetie, when Scarlett O’Hara made a fabulous dress from her curtains, she picked good curtains.  Not ones that someone had chucked into a dumpster.

      I was thisclose to being able to imagine a preteen or very young teen high-society-type gal both wanting and being able to pull off Kara’s dress. And it’s almost there if that’s the girl she’s designing for. But even then I think TLo’s right and the print still sinks it.

      • Anonymous

        And given the challenge and what the other designers would be doing, designing for a pre- or young teen wouldn’t be the way to go here.  But, you know, that would actually be an interesting challenge, and I don’t know that it has ever been done on PR, like say designing something for an Elle Fanning.  There could be so many different directions to go in, from demure to something so out there only a 15-year old could get away with it.  It’d be interesting to see what this group would come up with.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          That would be great — though only if the judges manage to show some connection to girls that age.  I remember the judging for the prom challenge and it drove me nuts.  They clearly thought the dresses were for MUCH younger girls than the almost-adults of prom.

    • BuffaloBarbara

      I think if Anthony hadn’t plunged the neckline so far to avoid the “bridal” connotation, it would have been more appropriate for the event. 

      I’d clicked through on the link you gave before arguing the “no gowns at the opera” point, and thought, “Wow, Kara’s looks exactly like some of those”… then I realized they were a few years old. (Loved the link to over-the-top Austin, too.)

      And can I just say, it’s kind of a shame if we are losing yet another dress-up venue.  It’s like we’ve gone aggressively out of our way to make sure that absolutely nothing is a really special event.

        And can I just say, it’s kind of a shame if we are losing yet another dress-up venue.  

        I don’t think we are losing the opera as a dress-up venue.  Women still get out the gowns and major jewels (if they have them) for opening nights and galas.  And many of us still get out a bit of the sparkly for other nights.  How much depends on whether it’s a weeknight (and whether we’re coming from work or not) or a weekend, a matinée or an evening performance.  

        But I will say this.  I would much rather see less dress-up at the opera than empty seats.  (“Subscribe now!” — Danny Newman)

        • BuffaloBarbara

          This is true.  Though I guess what I’m sorry for is that people don’t want to dress up–that they don’t want it to be a special occasion.  I just feel like, as a culture, we’re aggressively pursuing a kind of homogeneity of tone, where the opera is treated like Broadway which is treated like an afternoon at the movies.  Even on a low level, going to a school dance other than a prom means jeans and tee shirts.  I miss the idea of having some events that matter more than other events, things that you put on your fancy for.  I can’t even remember the last time I really got dressed up to the nines for something.  (Senior Ball at college, maybe?  In 1992?)

          Life is just kind of depressingly banal, I guess.

          I like to think opera will be one of the last bastions of dressing up.  I was chaperoning an opera field trip and I was delighted to see a class of high-school kids all dressed up for student matinee up, wayyyy up, in the balcony.  Not so much my kid’s elementary-school class–though the teacher’s doing his best to raise the next generation of opera buffs.  (Though trying explaining Marriage of Figaro to a 10-year-old . . . )

        Absolutley agree.  I hate the casualness–but, of course, it was my generation (The Boomers) that brought all this on.  It’s a mindset that the opera or symphony or any performance should be not only for the elite, as it had been, but for the “people”.  While I totally agree with that, I do believe that people should show respect for the venue and the history of the art form and get dressed!  
        Even the mayor of our city was at a Martin Luther King event yesterday and gave a speech–in his shirtsleeves!!  I was appalled and will be writing him a letter! 

        • BuffaloBarbara

          I think that pretty much sums up my problem–the idea that dressing up is something is only for the “elite.”  Making something egalitarian should mean making all the pomp and circumstance available to everyone, without worrying at the door about whether they know someone who knows someone who was descended from someone on the Mayflower.  A meter maid should be able to buy a nice little number at Goodwill and fix it up and be just as wonderful and fancy as the Cabots and Lodges because she is no longer excluded from that world.  But instead of letting her into that world, they’ve decided to destroy it.

          That’s why I make my kids wear dress clothes to church.  It doesn’t have to be super-dressy but jeans are NOT allowed!  My husband, OTOH, sees no reason for this and things they should wear whatever.  I maintain that regular dressing up as a kid prepares you to dress appropriately for certain things as an adult. 

          For one thing, you figure out that dress clothes don’t have to be miserably uncomfortable!  I know they used to be, based on my mother’s description of the stuff she used to have to wear all the time.  But there are so many ways to make dress clothes that are comfy.

      I already posted that I liked Kara’s gown. I agreed with the judges that the ties on the bow should have been longer, or just a velvet sash with no bow. The bodice is a little understated  The princess seams would be more sophisticated if they were just darts. Over all it reminds me of artsy Giambattista  Valli dress that Samantha Boardman for to a Met ball a year or two ago.

        Yeah, I rather like Kara’s gown, too.  Glad she didn’t go home over it.  It really would have been nice with a longer bow in the back–and very Carolina Herrara.  But, hey, Carolina’s been a queen of evening wear for a long time.

      I actually think that Kara’s dress with a solid bustier and some sort of mesh, net, or tulle overlay for the skirt would have been the better for it. The shape was flattering, pockets are always a plus, and it was pretty well-cut for what it was.

      I thought Michael C’s was more appropriate for the opera stage rather than an opera patron. 

      Anyway, when Anothoy’s name was called, I was so sure he was going to be in the bottom three for the hideous styling. But then, this season does not seem to be “Project Stylist” as the two previous ones were.

      Kara’s was another bore like Sweet P’s the week before. Are the boring designs going to be kept in so that wacky designers get the boot each week?

        I agree. There seemed to be some overall confusion between onstage wear and audience wear. But then, I’m guessing most of the designers don’t have any real experience or knowledge of opera and opera-going.

        I thought the same thing! Maybe they are taped up that way? Is that possible? I have no idea; I refuse to wear anything that requires a strapless bra because I hate the discomfort, so what do I know?

        If they are fake, good for her for getting small ones that match her body type. Either way, her boobs look great.

        • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

          It is possible to tape them in a lot of cases. 

          And a strapless shouldn’t be uncomfortable — you’re getting the wrong ones if it is.  Essentially, the straps should only be acting as a stabilizer for your bra any way.  The band is supposed to be doing the actual supporting.

              Correct. It was Olive Garden who was told he had to remove the tape. There was also another conversation (same episode?) about a model who took it upon herself to go into the restroom and tape herself. Tape is a no-no on Project Runway. 

        • Anonymous

          Even taped, the breasts wouldn’t look like that–i.e. perfectly round with equal projection top and bottom.  You can’t have a natural breast jut out like that from the top without it being pushed up from the bottom.  Pectoral muscles, which provide the breast’s support, angle in from the shoulder.  Natural breasts are fuller at the bottom and the outer sides.  
          I actually think the breasts look bad because they are so clearly artificial.

            “I actually think the breasts look bad because they are so clearly artificial.” This.

            I’m about as thin as the model and I have smalls breasts that match my frame. I know it is none of my business, but boob jobs piss me off. Maybe it was the years getting teary-eyed after walking by Victoria’s Secret, but now all I can think is, what’s wrong with having a small chest?

              I don’t like the idea that the perfect body is one that almost never exists in nature–i.e. no fat, but big boobs.  Long legs AND a small waist.  Small nose, but big eyes and lips.  Whereas the reality is that most of the time, curves on top go with curves on the bottom.  Large features go with other large features.  There are exceptions, but I prefer the notion of working with what you’ve got instead spending thousands and undergoing the controlled trauma of surgery.  I’m sick of the notion that our bodies are, somehow, never good enough.

      Instead of Carolina Herrera, which I think she was aiming for, I saw Laura Ashley and that’s what dated this look for me. A modern print, keep the belt but lose the bow and this isn’t a bad look. Also the model’s makeup was hiddy. I liked Anthony’s dress as well, but not for the opera. However it would have looked great on someone with the body and the nerve to wear it last night.

      I think I actually liked Sweet P’s dress over Kara’s.  It had a great 1970s socialite feel to the shape and the print….many a helmet-haired heiress probably has/had one in her closet.  Kara’s seems a bit too Laura Ashley.

    • Anonymous

      The styling for Anthony’s was terrible, especially those black gloves, but I wasn’t a big fan of the dress either.  The proportions seemed off.  The draped arm was too much fabric and the neckline too plunging.  He was going for contrast, but it didn’t quite work to my eye.  

      Joanna Coles was right.  Kara’s went into bridesmaid for a garden wedding territory.  It could have been cute, but nothing about it showed anything different or new.

      It’s funny that everybody keeps saying “bridesmaid” for Kara’s dress, because I can’t remember the last time I saw a print on a bridesmaid. Three weddings last summer, and we had 1) the standard royal blue, sweetheart-neckline, A-line long dresses, 2) 50s-inspired, full-skirted, Betty Draper day dresses in a short of shimmery mauve taffeta and 3) the David’s Bridal thing where everybody has the same fabric but a different pieces, all short, most tight, all the same boring bright blue (again!), with tops and skirts chosen by the individual bridesmaids. Wish I could see some print bridesmaids. Not even Kate Middleton had bridesmaids in prints.

      In my own bridesmaid days, I wore lavender once and pink once. Solids, straight, strapless, with dyed-to-match shoes. BO-ring.

      Meanwhile, the Lynda Carter at the opera picture you linked to has Carolina Herrera in a floral print dress (a better floral print, natch) with a similar silhouette (no grosgrain at the waist and a lower waist, as you also call for). So Carolina Herrera is on the money there.

      Kara’s dress made me sad. Sad because of the dreary print and because of the complete lack of originality or imagination. And I think it probably made Joe Zee sad too, given all the good advice he gave her on “All on the Line.”

      Anthony’s was just too slutty for my taste.  And even though he explained them nicely, I did not like the black leather gloves.  Even though they are opera length.

      I missed the first ten minutes so I don’t know exactly what they were told, and I didn’t like Austin’s dress and would have taken Anthony’s or Michael’s over it as the winner (though I’m looking forward to seeing Mondo’s here, because on TV that was my pick). I don’t think it matters that one might not wear it to the opera, and the judges haven’t always been that literal in the past (at least not on regular PR). This was a knock out dress. Bad styling may have killed it more than it being too RC and not opera enough. It’s also a surprisingly great step in a more sophisticated direction for Anthony.

      I agree completely that Michael’s and Anthony’s dresses, although having good elements, are way too uncovered for the opera, even the most gala opening. The challenge was clearly “society” and only if one considers Kim Kardashian “society” could these fit the bill.

      The subject of what one wears to the opera is a big thorn in my side. Last year on Christmas eve, we went to the Met to see “The Magic Flute” (Julie Taymor) and damned if half the audience didn’t show up looking like they’d just cleaned out the garage — puffy quilted jackets, jeans, sneakers, etc. I just wanted to stand on the grand stairway and scream at the top of my lungs – “You’re at The Metropolitan Opera House on Christmas Eve! Go back to the hotel and get dressed!” 

      And thank you for the old links. Somehow I missed Lynda Carter the first time around. That may be one of the most exquisite dresses I’ve ever seen in my life. Now that’s a print!

      Anthony’s dress was too slutty.  There was too much boobage going on.  The gloves were awful and had nothing to do with the dress.  Batgirl called and she wants her bat-gloves back. 

      Kara’s dress might have not been perfect for the opera, but it was a breath of fresh air.  It screams youth, Southern debutante (but for the print), but with a  lowcut bodice for a twist.   This dress is all about the print.  The dress is uncluttered, not over designed, so we are focused on the print.  I particularly liked the choice of a print here.  Kara got the scale of the print correct for an oll-over use on a gown.  It was a dreamy, romantic print.  This may have not been appropriate for the opera, but it was youthful and reminscent of a romantic, glamorous era.

      I gasped when Anthony’s model walked out – so stunning!  It’s a little bit Fay Wray, and a little bit rock n’ roll – I’m totally in love with that gown and I want to have its baby!  If a Hollywood starlet wore that to a red carpet event everyone would be talking about it.  Some people would love it and others would hate it, but nobody would ignore it.  With that said, I agree that it’s much too much for the opera and Austin deserved the win.

      Kara’s gown was a big yawn, but I’m happy she’s still in.  This challenge obviously wasn’t her strong point, but she’s very talented and I’m hoping she shines in the next challenge.

      So is double sided tape no longer banned on the show?  

      I thought the plunging neckline was too low, the boob job poorly done, and the accessories terrible. Take all that away, or even kept the plunging neckline and style it differently, it would have been good.  Honestly, did not see this in the top and was shocked when it was.

      Kara’s I know what she was going for, and again agree with everyone else…different print and this would have been a different story.  As it was, it was safe and boring.  Nothing you ever want to hear about a gown.

      Hate Anthony’s dress. From the ridiculous Kardashianesque neckline to the overdone draping it annoyed the hell out of me. But it seems I’m in the minority, which is fine because different strokes, right? Part of it could be the god-awful styling just makes the whole thing even worse.

      Kara’s print screams 90’s. My husband’s aunt has a house on Long Island that she redecorated a few years ago. Take away the blue and you’ve got her color scheme. It looks like an outdated older woman’s house. It is.

      Anthony’s gown was evidence that he has been very busy refining his skills since his season on PR. Back then, his “look” was pageant/cotillion/Sunday refined with a little sass. Now he seems to have upped his ante into the va-va-voom, sexy, draped body-conscious look. But this dress had a couple of va-va’s too many. Honestly, I imagine that the usual dress-tape was duct-strength to hold that neckline in place.

      As for Kara – yes, she referenced Carolina and Oscar. Assuming, of course, they are now working with shower curtains and bed sheets. Sorry, Kara – you ARE a talented designer, but kick it UP, baby! This is the big time, and you really need to take some risks.

          You are right! He did indeed mention building in a foundation – I imagine it had to be some sort of scaffolding, like the brassiere Howard Hughes designed for Jane Russell? Whatever it was, it held up those puppies with nary a wiggle, so if all else fails, Anthony can get work in the aeronautics industry. I think he could design the most attractive Zeppelins, don’t you?

      out of all of the dresses this episode, anthony’s is the one that really startled me. shocked, in fact, is almost the correct word.

      i’ve been to dozens of operas [my parents both sang--in the chorus, mind], so i’ve been to way more than my fair share, probably on both coasts, definitely in a variety of cities, everything from french to italian to light [ie: G&S] to, of course, chinese. nobody–nobody–would wear a dress that low cut to an opera. nobody, not even me. it was so very far from the brief that it was as if it were made for another brief entirely.

      not that it isnt a good dress. thing is–it is a good dress. very interesting shape, very nice flow, fabric was fabulous, intricately & extremely well made, just Not An Opera Dress. not in a million years.

      [you all are lucky. i could insert here a long story about wearing a blue velvet dress & combat boots to a performance of girl of the golden west at the semi-outdoor, i guess, santa fe opera house. this would include a terrible bit about spouse no. 2 having a tantrum about my clothing & wiping off my makeup w/ an oil rag {there are lots of reasons i call him spouse no. 2} cos he thought i looked inappropriate--he, whose family's idea of entertainment is to go to a restaurant beside an alligator pit to watch the moon landing. anyway, i'm pretty sick so thats all you get. arent you lucky.]

      anyway–as for dress no. 2: anyone but me remember betsey johnson knockoffs of the mid- to late 80s? the kind you [or someone, but definitely not me] would buy at contempo after they’d changed their name from contempo casuals? that, right there, is the fabric. it’s also the fabric for the more or less contemporaneous laura ashley knockoffs, from when her name on anything could sell that thing, from dresses to housewares. not, of course, when she did her best work–that was a decade or two previous–but when she sold the most, when she did her most popular work– kind of more ordinary stuff, w/ more mass appeal, stuff that doesnt look anything but slightly dated now. stuff that spouse no. 2 was just itching that i would wear, dumbed down & dirt bland. spouse no. 3 is crazier & even more problematic but, boy, am i glad his predecessor is gone.

      Anthony’s dress could have worked if he had toned it down a bit – closed up that open bust, lightened the shoes and had opera gloves that were a lighter color.  The bag may have worked for the black accessories, but it was too much (busy and colorwise) for the belt.  Had the belt simply been the links and the green jewel, the look could have been pretty.  The angry kitty charm was too much.

      I think the beauty of the opera is that you CAN dress either way…if you want to really go for it, you can and nobody will look at you funny for doing it.  But you can also come right from work on a weekday, say, dressed all in black and still be appropriate and enjoy a really really good show.

      I read the previous comments (well, I started scanning at some point) and the boobs and dress on Anthony’s model make her look like a piece of sculpture that has come to life and decided to slip on some dominatrix gloves and head out to the opera.  It’s all very dramatic, but I think that like Mondo’s design, it’s an interesting photo shoot piece, but not so much something to wear to the opera.  

      Kara’s dress made me think of Molly Ringwald in “Pretty in Pink.”  I was half expecting to see Jon Cryer and Andrew McCarthy come chasing out after the model, although with that stink eye she’s giving the camera, she’d probably scare both of them off.

      Well, my thoughts when I heard the ridiculous praises Anthony got over his gown (well made, OK, but all those designers, with the exception of Sweet P, are known for their almost flawless execution in a short amount of time) were due to the styling. take off the contrasting gloves and the eye-catching bijou-belt and you’re left with a pretty basic design and a unmodest neckline. Fe…
      As for Kara… Girl, were you ever cut out for realt TV ? I remember an almost every week’s creative breakdown but it also almost always ended up with a nice design. This was… Well… Boring. And bordering on juvenile (like Kenley’s). I know florals prints are unavoidable in opera gown but the only thing I liked was the pockets ;p.

It was not offered as being representative (again, no scare quotes needed) of what opera goers wear nationwide; it was offered as evidence of WHAT KIND OF GOWNS WOMEN WEAR TO THE OPERA WHEN THEY WEAR GOWNS TO THE OPERA.

        We’re not being “cute” here; we’re being two fashion bloggers who actually know what they’re talking about.

      Reading your various comments pertaining to dresses missing the very specific mark of the challenge and then clicking on that last link of Mr. Scarlett at the Opera, I wonder why on earth did the producers not take the contestants to the opera?  It would have been entertaining and informative (i, for one, had no idea what an opera gown was and no examples were offered) and may have mislead the designers to think that this would be a costume competition.

      Anybody remember THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW’S Gone With the Wind parody? The one where Carol as Scarlett O’Hara comes walking down a long staircase in a green velvet Bob Mackie gown that looked just like a pair of curtains, right down to the plainly visible curtain rod running over the top of Burnett’s shoulders for that Shoulder Pad look? And when Harvey Korman’s Rhett Butler compliments her on it, she replies, “I just saw it in the window, and I couldn’t resist it….” (http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/a10152ad78/went-with-the-wind-from-the-carol-burnett-show-part-of-2-from-greatest-comedy-sketches – about 3:20 in)

      That is what Kara’s dress reminds me of.

        There are people of the type to read this blog who don’t know that skit?

          You’d be surprised, @Derek_anny:disqus – I can’t believe it myself, but THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW went off the air in 1979, which means there are people in their Thirties who didn’t ever see it when it was on. And Josh M is actually a pretty common type of young person – if he doesn’t know it personally, it doesn’t exist!

            Four years before I was born.
            I doubt Josh would be the type of person to read TLo.
            It’s a fairly iconic skit, riffing on an even more iconic movie. Familiarity with that curtain dress in particular might be higher than you think.

      I like Anthony & Michael & Austin (and quite a few others this go round) and I liked all three of their looks for different reasons.
      At this point I think all three are a bit more attention getting than opera ready, but Austin’s is less fleshy.

      More surprising is how much I ended up liking Kara’s gown (I like Kara Too).  I thought I wasn’t going to but weirdly I did. 
      I don’t hate the material as much as many, even tho I’m sure there were a couple hundred more at mood that I would have liked better.
      I liked the shape & pockets. 
       I’m not sure how many would wear it to the opera but I think many would want to wear it.

      Seriously, WHO can wear Michel’s gown? Not human ladies!
