Emilio's look is really beautiful but I don't find it '20s at all. It's a long fitted dress with little cap sleeves. It's '30s. I don't think you can call this a '20s look. He knows this and says it's not overtly '20s but gives a nod to vintage. Nice save. All of that said, it's a gorgeous dress. The floral print safely avoids any grandma comparisons, as far as I can see.
Next is Uli's look. It's a white and silver dress with lots of fringe. Uli likes it because the model is showing off her figure without the dress being too tight. For me, that's one of the signs of a really good designer. A lot of the time, it seems that anything less that skin tight looks bulky on a model. It takes a lot of smart planning to choose a fabric and construct in such a way that something can be relaxed without being unflattering. There's a shawl thing on the shoulders of the model that I don't think I'm crazy about. It has sort of an Issey Miyake architectural thing that seems dissonant next to the casual elegance of the dress.
Laura Kathleen's look is next and it's beautiful. The model is wearing flowing dark red pants that have lots of pleating on the sides. The top is a tank with lots of sparkly bits on it (such as a dreaded stylist might use) and a very low cut back. The fur vest is black and Laura Kathleen says that all of it is completely her.
Ivy's dress is next. It also has that drop waist. The fabric that she used is indeed beautiful and looks very expensive. She has cut it so that the lines of sequins are at an angle that ends in an inverted chevron at the center of the dress. At the bottom of the dress, she has used this very delicate feather that may prove problematic. It's so sparse that it just looks accidental.
Anthony Ryan's dress is a sort of shapeless mini-dress. The fabric seems reminiscent of the '20s, but I wouldn't say the dress itself has that much in common with the era. His feather capelet is really cute. Is this the season of feathers or WHAT? I don't feel like I've ever seen as many as these guys have used.
After the show, all of the designers return to the stage. Georgina thought that Josh's dress was modern, but she wasn't wild about the brooch or the handbag. Carolyn and Isaac think that it's maybe too safe. Jenny feels that Emilio's dress is elegant, though a bit dated. Isaac finds it '30s as well. Emilio tries to say that it's late '20s. Isaac loves Uli's dress but thinks that her white fringe makes it look cheaper. Gretchen asks her to take off the wrap and they all seem to like it better without it. Isaac thinks that Laura Kathleen's look has a heavy silhouette when the girl is wearing the fur. Georgina thinks that the model's hips look big. Carolyn thinks that Ivy's dress is very Prada, which is only partly a compliment. Jenny doesn't like the feathers at the bottom. Gretchen thinks that she could see someone wearing this look. Jenny loves Anthony Ryan's look. She does think that it could have been more form-fitting. Isaac has the strangest moment, where he hates the capelet and has Anthony Ryan take it off. Then, he puts it back and Isaac says that he was wrong.
