It’s been something of an eye-searing joy watching these three seasoned and experienced spotlight-grabbers go head-to-head and toe-to-toe each week, in an ever-increasingly desperate attempt to snag just another moment or two of the public’s attention from the other two. Fashion crabs in a bucket, as it were.
Let’s see how they all did in the home stretch, yes? That way, we can award the drag crown to the winner.
Miss Tyra pulled out every stop she had left and came up with this; a sort of Beyonce Barbie/Fabric Store Mannequin hybrid. All things considered, she could’ve gone a whole lot crazier than this, but we suspect Miss Heidi’s quiet, low-key style had an effect on her.
No, that wasn’t a joke. Look:
Heidi Klum in Christian Siriano
Sure, it’s bold and bright and body-hugging, but it’s also minimalist and as covered up as Heidi Klum has ever been in public. This is such an obvious and strategic dialing back of her own preferences in the face of two co-hosts who could drag her down with their own out-of-control tackiness. We suspect a decade+ of hosting next to Nina Garcia taught her the value of restraint. She looks great here.
And then there’s …
We don’t even know what that is.
Although the longer we look at it, the more we think she’s supposed to be on a platform high above a circus audience, trapeze in one hand, the other ripping away the cape and … skirt at the last second before she starts her routine. It really is the only instance in which this ensemble might work – and even then, we suspect suede thigh-high boots to be something of a safety issue.
It is for these reasons that we must award the crown for the attention-whoriest of the three judges to … MEL B.
Fuck taste, right? Grab yourself some, girl. RESPECT.
