First out is a gray knit cardigan with super long sleeves over a leather bustier and pants. I don't hate it. Next is a black dress... Althea might need to learn the difference between something that is tightly fitted and something that fits too tightly. Because when a size 000 model can barely walk in one of your dresses because you have her sewn so tightly in there, there could be a prob. Her 13th look comes out now, and it is quite nice. I will spoil you by saying that the pants will later receive rave reviews, but they remind me of Malvin's crazy chicken jodhpur idea. However, they are gorgeously tailored at the waist and butt, and despite the flowing material/tight calves thing, the model looks gorgeous. The big-shouldered black jacket looks great, too. Also included are variations on the same thing. Superslim pants and cleanly tailored jackets. It's a lot of sportswear. There's one green dress under a black jacket that stands out, but otherwise...? Nothing, really. I mean, it all looks good, but I am not feeling overwhelmed with wow. Althea, however, is proud of her work. She says she would wear any of the looks and is very happy, overall. Also featured: Jaslene Gonzalez, America's Next Top Model Cycle 8 winner. Yes, she does still look like a tranny. To highlight this, the camera cuts to first-aufed Ari Fish, in the audience. Ari looks like a clown from Cirque du Soleil's tribute to the life of Boy George. Oh my God, I made that up, but don't you want to see that so bad? Make it happen, you sexy acrobats! I suppose she got tired of being compared so often to Samantha Ronson, but man, she was a CUTE SamRon. Althea's last look is Tanisha in a tan/gold absolutely skin tight dress. It is gorgeous, but mostly gorgeous because Tanisha works it so hard she nearly causes me to go blind. She is stunning. Althea's mom sweetly stands and presents her with flowers as she tromps back down during her finale.
