The models go to hair and makeup and I'm sensing some chemistry between Cute Michael and the daddy with the mustache who's doing the makeup. It's a gun show in the L'Oreal Paris garage and I swear to all that is holy that I don't usually talk like this. Sober. Seriously though, all of the hair and makeup people look like extras from Shawshank.
On the runway, Heidi welcomes the designer and introduces Michael, Heidi, and freaking January Jones. OK, I love Mad Men, uh, madly. But, this girl so completely BOMBED on SNL in the lamest most amateurish way that I can hardly stand to look at her. Even though she's amazing to look at, which actually sort of infuriates me right now. God, she's so pretty.
The show begins with Christopher's look. It's a beautifully fitted gray dress. It's cotton, but still seems like it's cocktail. He made this animal skin shrug and I get the idea, but he was not adept with this fabric. It's unwieldy. Next is April's look, which is a sporty little black top and skirt. She made an asymmetrical vest to top it. It's not my favorite thing, but it's made nicely.
Ivy's look is next and it's pretty nice. It's flowing black slacks and an architectural white top. A gray organza coat tops that and complements the architecture of the top. It's nice. A touch old, but really good looking on the runway. Other Michael's look is next. He made a blue cocktail dress (which he is aware of) and topped it with a denim coat. Not bad looking. Gretchen made this halter top and skirt, with a flowing coat. I think it looks nicely made but ugly.
OK, I swear this is true. I watched this with my friend, who is totally not invested, and we both LOVED Cute Michael's look. It's this super pleated skirt in a sort of gunmetal gray, with a matching slouchy satin top that has a white lining. It's belted and he made a short jacket to go with it. Sorry, I don't care if I sound like I'm just being stalky or something. This was cool. Cute Michael likes it too, but he thinks that the skirt is too short. I don't. After his girl walks off, he says that he's dead and the designers laugh and tell him to stop.
Here's Valerie's look. It's a skirt with a purple top and a zippy vest over that. Valerie really loves zippers. There's something repetitive about the collars of the top and the vest that I find a little problematic. Andy's look is up and his girl is wearing super voluminous cargo/harem pants. He's worried because the fit is off and oh my. Camel toe for days and the pants also go far up the butt of the model. She should sue. Mondo's look is up and it's very cute. This wild herringbone print skirt with a striped top with very cool cuffs and black short jacket. There's a purple lining to the jacket that is adorable.
