Time to talk to Korto. She says she wanted something pretty. Austin thought it was chic and he liked that she used produce. Nina thinks it looks impeccable. Michael says it's the right girl in the right dress styled the right way.
Stella says she sewed her garment by hand. Michael very rightly says there's no transformation. He saw the girl come around the corner and he was like, "Oh, look. Here come some trash bags." Austin says she could have done more. Heidi says she's not impressed.
Kelli explains her design and how she treated her materials. Nina likes the way she thinks -- she's resourceful. Michael thinks she pushed the envelope and succeeded.
Blayne says that he didn't want to bore the judges. Michael and Nina laugh and say that there's no way they are bored. There's nothing really more embarrassing than a moment like that. I'm not sure Blayne's strong enough. Luckily, he's got a hide made of leather. Heidi says it's a bit bunny-ish. Austin thought of a diaper. Michael was reminded of the wrestling challenge. It's provocative but not pretty.
They thought Kelli's was pretty (I guess we disagree about that). Creative and pretty. Austin felt it was detailed. Daniel was innovative with his material. He has the bravado that you either have or not. They don't like that Korto used a tablecloth, but they like the overall look.
Austin says that Stella's aesthetic is punk, but her dress wasn't very punk. Heidi says its "butt-ugly." It doesn't make Michael curious to know more about her. Nina thought Jerry's design was strange. Michael thought it was what you wear when you're killing someone. Austin wrote "hideous" on his card when Blayne's model came out. It wasn't executed well, even though he was trying hard to be edgy.
They've made their decision and the designers return. Korto is in. And the winner... is Kelli. She's thrilled. Dan looks pissed. Blayne is in. Thank God, I can't do this without him. It's between Stella and Jerry. Jerry is... out. Ouch, and he's doing "quite well as a designer!" First off the show. That's gotta hurt. In any event, he says he'll be fine. I don't know though. Ouch! At least Stella is here for another week. I mean, she may not have it in her, but I like her personality.Come check out Jeff Long's new play For Reasons Unknown at the Barrow St. Theatre in August!
