'Making The Cut': Naomi Campbell is exactly how every reality show judge needs to be, say fans
On Amazon-backed 'Making The Cut,' judge Naomi Campbell tells it like it is. She isn't one to mince words and that is what makes her so likable to her fans.
In a recently-aired episode, she didn't hold back while commenting on designer Troy Arnold's seven-hour assignment in which he made a dress and a jacket to go over it. He said he envisioned it for strong, powerful, working women. However, Naomi wasn't impressed. "It's difficult to put your arm inside a jacket with a dress with a sleeve inside. That would be my nightmare to have to model that outfit," she had said.
But that doesn't mean she's harsh even on the ones who have managed to impress her. Esther Perbandt's couture look had her floored. She told her that her two-look collection for the assignment was good and showed how she wanted to dress empowered, confident women. "And your line was clean, your aesthetic. I love the hair. It was elegant and graceful, but yet very modern. This is for me a perfect example of a new way of couture," the supermodel-judge further added.
The now-eliminated Martha Gottwald was another designer who received sharp comments from Naomi. For the couture challenge, she used safety pins to hold her dresses together. Although, no one understood that at first. Upon taking a closer look, one of the other judges, Joseph Altuzarra, found out that there was no stitching involved. Naomi was visibly upset about it and gave Martha an earful. She thought the designer's work was lazy and that she needed to show some respect for couture.
Meanwhile, fans are gushing over Naomi for being completely honest and straight forward with her comments.
"Naomi Campbell is what every reality show judge needs to be confident knowledgeable & honest #makingthecut," a fan expressed, while another shared: "Naomi Campbell is such a powerful judge of #MakingTheCut."
"I want to be on #MakingTheCut.I'm not a designer per se, but having Naomi Campbell read me has been a dream of mine," a user tweeted. "I’m not sure what future show Naomi Campbell is auditioning for w/ her turn as a sharp-tongued, give-it-to-you-straight judge on @MakingtheCutTV but she’s more than earned it already. #MakingTheCut," another posted.
