Michael's dress is next and I think he did a really good job of choosing a print. It's a bright green and yellow flower print and it looks very resort-wear. It's a caftan style and is really plunging in the front and back. His styling is pretty excellent though. It just... seems like so much of the other stuff that he does. But, I think maybe I don't give enough credit to expert draping, which this appears to possess.
Here's Mondo's dress. We've got the horizontal stripes and it's flapper-style with a little ruffled skirt at the bottom. It's actually pretty cute. Mondo likes it and thinks that his model is really working it. That she is.
Lastly, we have Kenley's look. From afar, it's really pretty. The colors are gorgeous and I agree that the loose fit is nice, though loose like that only really looks good on ladies who are super thin. On closer inspection, the mismatched seams really do cause a problem for the eye. It's sewn beautifully but looks less so with the print not matching.
After the show, the models return to the stage. Mondo says that he was in a dark place the day before, so he went to his sweet spot -- mixing fabrics and colors. Isaac likes the dress, but wishes it were slimmer in the waist. Nanette thinks that a lady would curves would have a problem with the boxy silhouette. Angela thinks that it should have been paired with sandals instead of heels and Isaac agrees. Georgina says that it's not his most exciting work, but it's still a nice dress.
They all think that Michael's dress is sensual without being vulgar. Georgina and Angela think it's too long, but overall everyone seems to like it. Georgina likes Kenley's quirkiness, but she has a problem with the print. Angela points out the seams not matching is a problem. Nanette says that she really wanted the special element that the keyhole would have brought. Isaac agrees that there needed to be something that made the dress soar. Isaac and Georgina didn't realize that Austin's design was a coat. In fact, Isaac didn't like it as much when he thought it was a dress. Angela thinks it would sell really well in retail.
The designers leave and the judges gab. Backstage, Kenley is unsure who's going to get the ax. Onstage, Isaac says that you know the woman Austin designs for. Nanette is not a fan of the fabric. She liked Mondo's choice of fabrics. Only Angela doesn't seem to like it. Georgina, who I swear gets more gorgeous every time I look at her, feels like Kenley should have adapted to her print. Angela is disappointed because she really thinks that Kenley is commercially viable. Isaac thinks though that her dress was a little frumpy. Ouch, that's a killer. Nanette also comments on Kenley's inability to accept direction or criticism. They should have Tim Gunn pop in now to attest to that. Georgina says that you know what you're going to get from Kenley. Angela says that she could totally see Kenley with a shop. Isaac thought that Michael's dress was very pretty. Nanette says that she thought his sketch looked old, but she was pleasantly surprised when she saw it on the runway. Angela says that she thinks Michael is a great designer (no she doesn't) and has a lot of potential, but she has noticed over the weeks that he's really hit or miss. Georgina agrees that he needs to have the confidence to stick by a point-of-view. He's a people pleaser with his designs. That's it!
