Wow, these dresses have been especially awful. Now, here's Jay's dress. It's a strapless, floor-length gown. The bodice is satin-y, while the skirt is matte. There's a waistband with Campbell's branding that creates a figure-flattering little v-shape. There's nothing particularly groundbreaking about this dress, but I'm really glad that it's formal and flattering. Say what they will about the dress being different than someone's style as a designer, the judges will be happier with this than they will be with some monstrosity that looks just like the person who made it. Jay thinks that she looks happy in his dress.
Jesse's look is up next. It's a knee-length dress with a white waistband. It's paired with a white bolero jacket. When she removes the jacket, it reveals off-the-shoulder straps, which are kind of nice. The jacket is stupid boring though. There's a nice flow to the skirt too. Jesse thinks that his look came together really well.
Ben is up next and his dress is floor-length with halter straps. There is a thigh-high slit that is really dramatic. Campbell's labeling is on the inside of the skirt and you can see it along the slit. There is a chartreuse waistband that seems to meet in the middle of her waist and spread up and down on the sides. It serves to make her waist look smaller and I, for one, think it looks pretty neat. The back is bare. Ben is happy with it, though everyone sounds really defensive and desperate for this challenge as they talk about how amazing dress looks and just HOW MUCH their client loves it.
Here's Mila's dress. It's everything that has been said. It's a floor-length dress with thin straps in a halter. There are huge asymmetrical white star appliques on the red dress. It's very dramatic and I think kind of exciting. Her model is completely lit up wearing it. This lady wearing it is not tiny and the fit is extraordinary. It makes her look terrific.
