After the show, Debra Messing, who was in attendance, says that she loved Melissa's "red" dress. Hmmph, some people don't know blood orange when they see it. "Fashion author" Eila Mell was also a fan of Melissa's red. Now tell me, a fashion author... how does that happen? Bonnie Brooks from Lord & Taylor says that she's rooting for Christopher but I wonder if that's because it would up the stock of the design of his they are already committed to carrying. Uncle Nick from Season 2 (Botox much?) says that he liked the raw edge of Christopher's work. Holy shit, Stephanie Meyer of Twilight fame loved Dmitry's work. Joanna Coles also liked it, but that's not as big of a deal. However, she does say that she wanted to leap out of her chair and rip the garments off of the models because she liked them as much. Valerie from Season 8 says that she loved Fabio's collection. ANYA! She loved Fabio and said that his work was unexpected and sublime. Hell yeah. We see Fabio crying as he hugs his family. Several designers say that they never know the judges are going to choose. I think they just don't want to say that they like anything.
The designers meet on the runway and Heidi congratulates all of them. A model for each designer comes out. Dmitry says that he was trying to use geometrical shapes and make something feminine. Heidi says that she loved the show. She applauds him for listening to the judges. Michael thinks the fit of his work is fantastic. Nina loved his fringe jacket paired with some harem pants. She feels like most of his work was editorial. Wow, she's really excited about him. Jennifer says that she felt like she got to know Dmitry by watching his collection. That's very sweet.
Melissa says that she was working to combine the absurd and surreal. Michael tells her that she understands how a girl wants to look, because she is the girl. The only thing that struck him as strange was the white dress that wouldn't move. He wanted to nail her shoes to a skateboard and pull her down the runway. Jennifer disagrees -- she liked the dress. Heidi thought all of her girls, excepting the one who couldn't walk, were tough, like Melissa. Nina liked that her work is sexy and not slutty. Jennifer thinks that Melissa could be one of the model.
