Mikaela and Sara are next. Lori says that Mikaela looks beautiful and has extraordinary bone structure, but her eyes were perpetually closed during this shoot. Tyra tells Mikaela to smack the photographer upside his head through the lens with her eyes. That would require some Go-Go Gadget eyes, and also be quite frightening. ALT says that Sara looks like she just got caught on camera at the party. Nigel says that it's only okay for him but not brilliant, and that the shot looses her cool chic-ness, her differentness, and her modernity. He loves her in front of him, though. Tyra says that there's something about the planes of Sara's face that the camera loves, and she needs to own that and realize what she has.
Finally, there is Kasia and Molly. Tyra notes that Molly's weave looks a little crazy, and Molly takes off her head wrap to show Tyra the full extent of the damage. Tyra says that there's a weave malfunction going on, and that sometimes things go a bit awry. If Molly sticks around, she says, they'll do something about it. And if she's eliminated they're going to make her go through airport security with that shit? Happily, Molly and Kasia's photo is gorgeous. Nigel says that Molly is striking, and super-cool. He's not 100% sure about Kasia, though, and says that it looks really dark inside of her open mouth. What a strange thing to say. Not quite as bad as the time he compared someone's mouth to a cat anus, but still weird. Tyra tells him to stop hating, and that Kasia's open mouth is stunning. ALT loves the photo, and thinks it's the best of all. Molly looks like a strong warrior sister, and Kasia looks like the good girl uptown sister. Lori says that this was also her favorite photo. They were shooting couture, and both girls shone.
With this, it's time for the judges to deliberate. Monique has a very old school, dreamy quality to her, but Alexandria works it. She nailed her photo, but the fact that she's fussy, fidgety, and bothersome is a problem. Hannah and Brittani both stand out in their photo. Hannah came alive to Nigel, and Lori says that Brittani became a star with her makeover. Tyra says that Brittani is a dream. Jaclyn's picture is extraordinary -- dreamy, ethereal, southern belle, Gone With the Wind. Dalya has also done well. ALT says that Dominique is obviously problematic in this photo, because no model should say to a creative director that she's thinking of nothing. Nigel says that she's not the brightest spark, and Tyra conjectures that she's overwhelmed. Lori says that you have to be in control of your beauty, and Mikaela and her closed eyes were quite awkward. ALT doesn't see the impact of beauty in Sara, but Nigel says that she's better than the photo shows. Lori adds that Sara doesn't know her potential. Kasia and Molly are stunning. Lori says that Molly is fabulous, and worked effortlessly but with awareness. Kasia has a swan-like neck, and both she and Molly reach the level of swandom. And with that, the judges have made their decisions.
