Angela Lindvall, host and low-rent Heidi Klum knock-off is joined by judges Georgina Chapman, Marchesa designer and Isaac Mizrahi who plays a bitchier version of Michael Kors.
I kept expecting Joanna Coles, editor of Marie Claire, and Tim Gunn stand-in, to complain about unkempt hair salon stations ala Tabitha’s Salon Takeover.
This week’s challenge was to create a look from 99 cent store items. There was a diverse range of styles and most designers shopped well and created some surprising looks. It’s amazing how high-end a handful of dime store items can look in the right hands.
I won’t spoil anything here, but the judges seemed spot on from where I sit as far as the best and worst designs this week.
