Here's her wedding dress. It gets applause! People loved it at Alexander McQueen, why shouldn't they love it again now? Kenley says that she has a big, bold color palette that she feels very good about. She's feeling very confident about her chances to win. There's a long black dress reminiscent of her dress for Diane von Furstenberg. I'm not trying to be a jerk -- these dresses do look like her other pieces. The collar is an elaborate Elizabethan thing, but it's still a high collar on a fitted dress. It's pretty though. There's big applause for Kenley's show when it's over.
Korto bounds onstage to a lot of applause. She asks everyone if they are ready for her. They are most certainly ready for that jelly. She tells everyone that her collection was inspired by nature. Also, she dedicates the show to her daughter, Elise. Also, to her husband, but everything she does is for her daughter. Also, she wants to know if everyone thinks that she looks hot. They don't answer really. It's time for the show.
Her stuff is really beautiful. Lots of bright greens and shimmering taupes. There's Jillian, from last season! She looks bored. [I think that's just how she looks! -- Mindy] First there is a green dress with a loose bodice and puffed sleeves and a tight skirt. There is pleating that feels like it's African influenced along the horizontal on the bodice. It's unique and beautiful. There's a white dress that gets applause. It's floor-length with an asymmetrical one-shouldered bodice. There is a vertical ruffle that begins at the waist and swirls to the floor. It's gorgeous. There is a green halter dress that is stunning. It's emerald green and floor-length in satin. There is amazing beadwork on one side of the halter. Korto says that she is true to herself as an African woman.
After the show, Korto takes Elise's hand and walks with her on the runway. It's very cute. Joan Kors, who is sitting next to Tim, looks very excited about the collection she has just seen.
And now it's time for Leanne. She tells us that she's in love with her collection, even though she lost tons of sleep while putting it together. First up is an off-the-shoulder top in white paired with a blue petal skirt. Very cool. The silhouette almost appears to be floating because of this odd mixture of rigidity and softness in her fabrics. She tells us that she was very inspired while creating this collection and she's proud. All of the exhaustion and stress were worth these three minutes of the runway show. This is the feeling of a lifetime. This one number, a white bustier with an alternating white and taupe petal skirt, gets applause. Tia wears this floor-length blue gown that flows beautifully. I don't think she was over-the-top literal, but there really is a water feeling with this collection. I feel kind of stupid for saying that, but it's not just visual -- it feels cool, like swimming, when I look at her stuff. Her wedding gown also gets huge applause.
