Lindsey's had a tough couple of weeks. She's been in the bottom and, as tends to happen when a contestant is in the bottom more than once, her confidence faltered. It's not clear what inspired her look, and although Tim did tell her in the workroom that she was on the right track, she was eliminated after the judges said her green dress was boring. Laurie, on the other hand, had a specific motivation — Tinker Bell — and her model was spilling out of her three-piece outfit, which judge Zac Posen referred to as messy. Although it was Lindsey who was sent home, Twitter was torn about whether or not it was the right decision.
