For the Mad Hatters Tea Party shoot, Elsa got a feathered animal as a hat, which she sometimes calls a "swarm", sometimes a "swarm", until she decides that it doesn't matter, it's just one Duck - as if that were the generic term for waterfowl. On the other hand, she is quite sure that she only got the hat on "because of my lips". A mature insight from the contestant with the biggest inflatable lips of the season. The scene is then crowned by photographer Brian Bowen Smith, who simply calls the animal on her head a goose
The fitting for this horribly chopped up pseudo-fashion was so unspeakable that I preferred to look at real fashion again on Instagram, namely the last Miu Miu fashion show.
The fashion designer Yannik Zamboni. Was probably the winner of another Klum show, "Making the Cut". Luckily I missed it. You can order his fashion from Amazon, where he gets 1 to 5 star ratings. The dress model that he and Heidi are wearing is unfortunately sold out. It's a shame that you can't ask Karl Lagerfeld what he thinks of the clothes now. "Nobody knows him in Paris" seems to no longer be a criterion in this form of fashion for TV formats. It doesn't matter that none of the GNTM winners will ever make it onto a catwalk in Paris.
Anya struggles with her acceptance from the other girls. "I'm not feeling so good at the moment," she says sadly, before the hat shoot begins. Other colleagues attest to her that she has isolated herself, that it's better not to look for friends here anyway, because of the competition. In the previous episode, no one was happy about their successful "Four Seasons Walk." Now, after the shoot, she's received so little feigned "fuck you applause" that she almost collapses. Note: as a model frenemy, you just clap your fingertips. Coco delivers the philosophical climax of the drama with a succinctly stated wisdom: "Not everyone is besties with everyone".
Anya is practically kicked out by her roommates. You should temporarily look for another room. The negotiations for the conditions under which she can come back are difficult to tough. When she then decides to leave, her ex-roommates say goodbye to her with a lot of fake encouragement for her supposedly brave decision.
The ice-cold, motherly manner with which she is then treated in a bossy tone by a colleague with red hair in curlers, who cannot be dissuaded from the dramatic events when applying her foundation, ensures a shivering moment of horror full of human abysses.
Mirella - developed from the problem child with the expressionless face to the real catwalk surprise.
Emilia - the deep fall from Heidi's likeable, lanky darling with brats' charm to the launch candidate (had problems with her walk because she got the dress that was tightest at the ankles) will bring her some pity followers.
She's now too much in control for real screamers. But on the first shoot, she asks, "What's on your mind?" like she really wants to know. With her, this question is only a request to change the facial expression. The inner workings of the girls really don't matter.
Where is Lieselotte? The naïve Silver Surfer candidate from the last season always gave the events a touch of the unpredictable, while at the same time provoking Klum's feelings of genuine sympathy. Someone like her is sorely missed this season.
During walk training, the girls are supposed to practice their "I don't give a fuck" walk without swinging their hips with designer Yannick Zamboni. When walking Zoey, a plus-size candidate (quote: "I used to think I was fat"), Heidi's only criticism is: "Too much hips". That's borderline fat shaming, and the girls all backstage are unanimous in their outrage. You can't walk with the figure without momentum! "Shall we cut off our hips?" asks one. The fact that she is then also thrown out should cause a wave of indignation.
Clumsy Sarah becomes GNTM, Ducklip Elsa goes to the jungle camp.
Clark Parkin studied and worked in the real world of fashion in Paris and writes professionally about fashion and food. Both topics are too serious for him to look at them in an absurd light in trashy TV formats far removed from any reference to reality. At GNTM, he usually just happens to get stuck when zapping, mostly during the makeover episode.
