Darlings, we must dash off to fashion shows this morning, so we’ll have to be quick about this one. At least there are lots of pictures for you to look at.
Is anyone else just a little freaked out by her?
And it shows some shrewd thinking, showing the judges early on that she can do straight-up glamour like a champ.
To be honest, and it’s maybe unfair to say this so early on, we don’t really think she’s worth all the drama, y’know?
We thought her performance on the catwalk was a little odd. She needs to step it up. This is pretty, but kinda bland.
Y’know, if she was a comedy queen, she could totally work a “broke down bitch” look just like this, but since she seems to be playing it, you’ll pardon the term, straight, someone needs to tell her her busted wigs and drugstore makeup techniques are not as glamorous as she seems to think.
We think Billy B gives great critiques – some of the best on the show, in fact – but we had no idea what he was going on about with her. Sure, this wasn’t a fabulously original look, but it seemed an odd choice to single out for so much criticism, given what else was on the catwalk. Dida and Jiggly were better than this? She pulled it together for the lip synch, at least.
On the other hand, it was a pleasure seeing Billy tear into her look. We agreed with him on this one: there’s nothing modern or fresh here and it all makes her look decades older.
We always reserve a spot for at least one big girl, but we have never wanted to see a big girl in the finals more than now. Latrice is a pro, from top to bottom.
We think Willam is HILARIOUS and we don’t think all of the queens have quite figured out that he’s really never not in character. We don’t tend to respond well to pretty-girl queens except when they’re really good at it and even then we only wind up saying “Wow. She’s really pretty.” Willam’s definitely got the talent thing going for her, but we can’t say she routinely knocks us out with her looks.
