Ricky says that he wanted to make a denim cocktail dress. "Denim done up." That's cute, right? Wait, he's not done. The dress says something about him. "The little bitch in me." You know, when you say that over and over, it makes me...so angry. Everything is about the bitch in him or the girl in him. Well, I wish the girl in him would grow some fucking balls, and shut the hell up about the dresses that they want to wear. Heidi loves the styling. Caroline loves it. She has a really mannered diction that's starting to bother me. Oh God, I'm in that place now. Thanks Ricky!! Michael thinks the styling is very Amy Winehouse and he loves her. Michael says it's the first time he's seen the results of his lingerie work. Nina thinks it's impeccable and what they've been expecting from him. It's happening. He says thank you and, you guessed it, he's crying. Heidi asks what's up with him, and he cries and says this is all a roller coaster. You don't know if you suck or don't suck. Michael says that that feeling doesn't go away, which I think is such a generous thing for him to say. ["And kind of awesome because the second, unspoken part of that sentence is '...so get used to it and quit crying already.'" -- Joe R]
Jillian explains her design, and Heidi says that she doesn't love it like she loved her coat from last week. Jillian says that she thinks she may have been too ambitious with her design. Caroline doesn't like the label epaulette. I say eff off! I love that part! Whatever, she's just thinking about branding right now. Nina thinks that Jillian has good ideas, but perhaps too many this time. Heidi and Michael think the coat makes her model look chubs.
Sweet P says that she started with a long dress, but shortened it. Michael thinks it's very chic, and he loves the mix of fabrics. It's got "slimming voodoo" too, he says. Sweet P looks so thrilled. Nina says that any of the judges, except for Michael (though he says, "With the right shoe..."), would wear the dress and for many occasions. Caroline says that she's missing the 501s in the look, but he fit is very good.
Victorya explains that she essentially draped a skirt onto a pre-existing jean jacket and Heidi says it sounds like she didn't do much. Michael says that it looks like she glued a skirt onto a jacket. He also says something about the skirt being "reconnoitered," but I don't think that word was used properly. It means "to explore." Maybe I'm just not getting it. Nina says it looks like she wasn't inspired by the challenge at all.
