Next is Anthony Ryan's gown. It's all black with long sleeves and a high neck. We're seeing a lot of sleeves today, I guess. On the hips, the fabric changes to this black lined fabric that is gorgeous and is deceptively slimming. Anthony Ryan also feels that this dress is very couture inspired. He is correct when noting that you are able to see the sensuality of the model's body almost because of the fact that she is completely covered.
Uli's gown is up now. It's this really interesting gold leaf-like fabric at the center of the bodice up and around the neck in a halter style. There is nude fabric around the center, which gives it a sculptural feel. The skirt is a lace fabric with a nude underliner. The back is the same, with a strip of the gold fabric up the middle. There's a black line of a zipper down the back. I don't hate this. She doesn't seem particularly confident though.
Finally, Emilio's gown walks the runway. It's a slightly high-waisted, floor-length gown with long sleeves. The shoulders are kind of pronounced, which is cool. Emilio was right about one thing (well, he was actually right about a lot), this fabric is so special. It's really gorgeous. The skirt is very full and dramatic. The waist could maybe have been a little more fitted, but there is something sort of chic about the looseness of it. He thinks it's the most couture of all of the dresses that were shown.
After the show, Carolyn asks for all of the models to return. She asks Emilio how he felt about Paris. He says that he was very inspired by the show and mentions that, while there was a lot of transparent fabrics, there was a lot of covering up -- almost austerity. Isaac wants to feel the fabric. He finds it very delicate, though it looks very heavy. Cynthia runs to feel it too and notices that it's firm but light. Isaac loves so much about the dress -- the waist, the shoulders, the sleeves. He does wonder if it might look better just a little shorter, with just a hint of ankle showing. Georgina remembers back to the last challenge when they gave him grief over his craftsmanship. In contrast, she finds this beautifully executed and elegant. Cynthia thinks that this dress is beautiful in its simplicity. Carolyn says she feels like she is in fantasyland with this dress.
