The next morning, they go back to the workroom and start rocking and rolling. Ivy is sensitive about her construction and wants to make sure that everything is made well. Josh says that her fabric is beautiful but he feels like she is relying on the fabric instead of on her design. The models return for fittings for the show. Uli puts her dress on her girl and loves it. Laura Kathleen still thinks that Uli designs like a stylist, which I think is pretty dumb.
Scott Patric, make-up daddy, is in full effect this holiday season and serving macho painting realness. I've noticed that everyone is brandishing like the one 1920s reference they have at every turn. Charleston, flapper, jazz, etc. They never really add anything to the conversation.
Wow, Anthony Ryan and Ivy are talking such shit about each other. Ivy is happy with her look and thinks that it looks feminine and modern. Anthony Ryan thinks it looks like "Maw maw Georgina" going to bingo night. Now, does he mean our Georgina? Georgina Chapman? Did he just call her maw maw? I know he didn't really mean to, because that would be suicide. But, I think that's exactly what just happened. Does he know who she's married to? I wonder who is going to get to design Anthony Ryan's cement shoes? Ivy thinks that Anthony Ryan's dress looks like curtains.
Emilio thinks that his dress won't have a problem beating Joshua's, who he imagines will be criticized for his floral shoes, his handbag and that brooch. Joshua thinks that Emilio's work looks more like a costume than an actual real person dress.
On the runway, they're all sitting at little cocktail tables and Carolyn calls it the All-Star Speakeasy. Wow, they must feel like the space has been really transformed. She introduces Georgina, Isaac and guest judges Gretchen Mol and designer Jenny Packham. Carolyn says that the judges will be looking to see how they updated '20s looks.
The show begins with Josh's dress. It's a violet and gray wrap dress with a drop waist. That brooch found its home on the hip of the model. On the back of the dress is a line of yellow, which is pretty and seems very Josh. He's happy with the dress. I think it's pretty cute. My favorite part is the yellow stripe. It doesn't look like he really took Joanna's advice to heart about the marsupial properties of the silhouette, but I don't find it particularly unflattering or distracting. In fact, there's something relaxed about the waist that I find kind of cute.
