OK, Stefan's on the scene. I'm starting to find his brutal authority sort of sexy. The House of Emerald show begins and there's string quartet onstage. Lauri's dress opens. That pretty champagne color looks lovely on her. Lynne is next in Jeffrey's gown and it does NOT fit well. The girls backstage notice that the boobs are off. There's not enough structure. Golnessa's dress is next and I think it looks great. It may just be because Gretchen has a rocking bod. There's some tightness at the knee, but she's walking fine in it. Cesar's is kinda big. It doesn't look so good, actually. Dominique thinks their collection looks beautiful, and she says there is no way her team can win. I don't know though.
For the commercial break nugget, Cesar dishes on the NJ housewives, specifically about how Jacqueline's daughter was out of control. He says that she grew up too fast. Jeffrey says that you never know what happen and Cesar facetiously replies that he KNOWS because he watched the show.
Nami is still faltering. Dominique cries AGAIN that she is upset about the quality of her work. Jacqueline tries to comfort her. Stefan says he'll pull their team if they don't stop working. Caroline tells everyone to not worry, because she and her crew shine when under pressure. The show begins with some gents in tuxes onstage. Calvin is surprised by Teresa's energy when she walks. He thinks she transformed it on the runway. They sit on chaises and pose demurely. Their direction was to be genteel. Jacqueline looks fine, but Dominique hates it. I guess it is a little bland. The audience loves it. She struts that shit. Caroline works it! She looks great. David made a Givenchy neckline which is wonderful for her. Dina looks fab. Eduardo says the ladies really played their roles. Jeffrey says that Nami nailed it.
Judging time! First, the House of Emerald has their time. Iman says that they want to hear from clients. Isaac introduces Laura Brown and Susan Fales-Hill. Susan liked the sound of Jeffrey's original neckline. Isaac says he should have convinced Lynne to like it. Ashley loves the corset in her dress. Susan doesn't like the lampshade of a skirt that Cesar made. Isaac thinks it wrecks everything. Iman can see tattered petticoat hanging from the bottom. He says that he made the best thing he could with the time constraints, but Iman thinks he should have rethought the design to fit time constraints. Golnessa says she was going for a goddess effect. Susan loves the top. Isaac thinks she fucked up the waist. Gretchen freaks out when he says she put weight on her, but he meant actual fabric. Lauri loves her dress. Isaac loves it too. Laura loves the layers, though Iman doesn't love the length.
