That night, they toast at the apartment. Dominique says that they have bonded and she has made some real friendships during this competition. They do not flash to a shot of Calvin when she says that.
It's the next day and they book it to the show. Stefan is there! Hair and makeup time! People start filing into the audience. Glenda Bailey, editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar, is a guest judge. Love her. Emerald's show begins. All of the girls are onstage at the beginning. Jeffrey's crown look is first. There's a white jacket over the top and it's really interesting, if not exactly "right." The zipper looks cheap. Second is this look that is inspired by the bottom of the ocean. It has neat leggings underneath and a geometrical shape. His last look is a column dress with a shear top. Jeffrey is crying from pride backstage. I love that he's always so moved by the shows. Cesar's first look has that big jacket, and it's kinda poufy. Isaac is making a face. The dress underneath is gorgeous. The next is a dress cut on the bias. It's inspired by waves. The third is a gown that is inspired by the shades of the ocean. Dyes!
Nami has girls in white face, which makes the whole spiritual thing make sense now. They look like ghosts, and not altogether contended ghosts. Hungry ghosts. Stefan tells them to take their hands off of their models and Calvin declares that it is what it is. "The Lord has saved me!" Yeah, I don't know, either.
The show begins, and there is fake snow on the runway. They're walking so slow. And, they're barefoot. Dominique has a look that is a giant sheath top and shorts which gets applause from the audience. The last of her looks is a black gown that wraps around the head like waves. Calvin's first look is the pregnancy dress. It looks like a dress with a Baby Bjorn under the bodice. Isaac is confused. The next look is camel and black. It's a neat shapeless silhouette. The last is a white dress that is lovely and odd -- very dramatic.
The Bravo fun times commercial break is the designers talking about how none of them know Isaac's CRAZY references like Irving Penn and Cecil Beaton.
It's judging time. Isaac introduces Glenda and Gilles Mendel, from J. Mendel. They start with Emerald. Isaac likes the fluid thought apparent in the collection. Jeffrey says they wanted to make a goddess from air returning to water. Isaac doesn't like that white jacket with the cheap zipper.
