On the runway, Heidi says that going forward, the winner of the challenges will not get immunity. She introduces Michael, Nina, and Caroline Calvin. The show begins.
We start with Chris's design. It's a dark halter dress. I don't really need to mention that it's denim, do I? It's pretty enough, but mostly unremarkable. The fit is a bit off -- it smashes the boobies and puckers a bit at the waist. He used what looks like the bottom seam of a jacket to create the halter strap that runs down the right side of the dress. It is indeed incongruous. Always listen to Tim, people. How many times must it be said? Chris thinks it's really beautiful.
Next is Ricky's design. It's a dark minidress. The bodice is a tube and it flares into a short ruffled skirt at the thigh. There are buttons down the front of the dress that certainly add to their 501-ness. The neckline is cute, with two tiny folds at the bust. It fits well, too. It's a pretty dress, but not hugely more remarkable than Chris's. Ricky is very happy with it, though. He says that she is the girl that was in his head. There's always a girl inside of Ricky, isn't there?
Here's Sweet P's dress. It's knee-length and strapless, and she used different panels of denim in different shades to create what almost feels like a Mondrian effect. It also looks a little like sunbeams. It fits really well, too, and there are dark panels on the side of the waist and a small lighter panel in the middle of the waist -- very slimming, though Lea here doesn't really need any help. Sweet P's very happy with the end result. She feels it's very clean and polished.
Victorya's design is next. I kind of like the idea, because I think a short, structured trench coat on a woman is super sexy, but this is completely amateurish. The belt is tattered and crooked. It's essentially a jean jacket with a weird skirt tacked to the bottom of it. She says she was happy with it, but she must be losing her mind to actually feel that way.
Here's Rami's design. It's pretty accomplished. It's a dark short skirt and shirt that is pleated with a flat pane in the middle -- also slimming. The bodice is a wrap and has a cowl neck that opens in the middle. There are zippers along the trim that create a very modern cool look -- and I guess zippers are iconic. There are also buttons on the waist. It fits really well, too, but I'm still getting bored with Rami's stuff. It's all the same butt-hugging, twisty, pleated, textured draping. It has lost its allure for me. Rami thinks his look is dressy and modern,
