HOT MESS Vincent Libretti's recycling dress (season 3, episode 7)
Like most of Vincent's work, this one is best described with a body noise. While nearly everyone else turned recycled materials into clean and chic ensembles, he made eco-debris look like dirty, nasty garbage-wear. Using his standby defense ''It turns me on,'' Vincent miraculously avoided auf-ing that week. That he remained while the promising Alison Kelly went home (for a voluminous paper garment that Heidi said made her model look plus-size) is a classic example of a polarizing personality trumping genuine talent in the reality TV sphere.
