The judges confer. Anne likes that Jay's dress is simple and smart at the same time. Amsale notes that he didn't compromise his style for the client. As Michael says that he's sure Jay has now learned only to put garments on the runway the move well, Jay and Morgan are talking backstage. Morgan says she usually walks perfectly, and Jay replies, "That's why I picked you, but NOT ANYMORE." He's laughing, but...you know he means it. Kara Saun's gown made the model's face light up. The judges think she retained her creative stamp. They hate Nora's gown. Boring. Heidi argues that Melissa is young, and that "big, poofy" gowns are what young girls want. Didn't you get married, like, naked on a beach, Heidi? They think Nora was essentially just a dressmaker for this challenge. Now, they speak of Austin's dress. Michael feels like Austin was "steamrollered." He feels that even someone getting married in "Williamsburg, in a loft" wouldn't get married in a dress like his. I guess you haven't heard, Michael Kors, but all of your rich friends have moved into Williamsburg, making it too expensive and bourgeois for the kind of bohemians who would even consider wearing a dress like Austin's. Pick a new neighborhood for that point. Of course, New York is so gentrified and expensive at this point, you may have to pick a new state. Backstage, Austin tells Kevin that the judges thought his dress was "too weird."
The designers come back onstage. Kara Saun is the winner of the challenge. Good for her, but it's a bummer that Jay didn't win. I thought his dress was better. Jay, however, is still "in." Austin is wigging. Nora seems pretty cool. She has one of those hideous purple flowers pinned to her shirt. Heidi tells Nora that she compromised too much, and that Austin's gown looks nothing like a wedding dress. Austin has sweat on his upper lip. He is "in." Nora is going home. Austin stumbles off of the runway. Nora keeps her cool. I guess somebody owes her $10. She interviews that she is embarrassed that she has to leave the show with the wedding gown being her last gown, since it is so unlike her. She says she is going to miss everyone on the show. She cries to Alexandra that she wanted to do more. Don't worry, Nora! I'm sure we'll see a lot more of you in the future.
