Next is Jerell's look. It's a strapless gown with a empire waist. The short bodice is fitted with a bejeweled bust that looks to be made from red snakeskin and some green leather. At the center of the skirt, the dress expands and opens to reveal different colored taffeta. The top layer is brown, with red underneath, and it looks like some green below that. The brown taffeta creates a train behind Nicole. Jerell feels like he accomplished what he wanted. This is a cute dress. I feel like you can still sense a lot of the construction problems that Tim was talking about earlier, but it's pretty. Also, the make-up is great. This looks very expensive.
Here's Kenley's dress. Oh my God. It's a floor-length, sleeveless, high-necked, fitted evening gown. Made of fuchsia snakeskin. Who even knew there were fuchsia snakes? They all died for this? Anyway, so it's floor-length. There's a thin black belt around Topacio's waist. At the knee, the dress flairs. There are little petals (some would say "scales") around the circumference of the bottom. The tulle has been used to create volume. OK, the silhouette is not horrible. Well, it's not great, but it's sleek and very defined. And the dress fits very well. But it's ugly. She says that the gown looks exactly like her picture and she's going to make it to Bryant Park.
After the show, the models return to the stage. Leanne is asked to describe her design. She says she wanted to recreate the structure of the lavender plant. Georgina likes the balance between the structured and soft -- she thinks that the bodice was well done. Nina likes that Leanne tried something soft and feminine, but she has problems with the bodice. Michael thinks that the blue panel of fabric in the back of the dress was distracting. He thinks it looks like it just got thrown back there. Heidi thinks it's a matter of just not having a lot of time.
Korto describes her inspiration. Michael says that it's made beautifully and is very flattering on Katarina. Korto is already waiting for bad news though, and here it comes. He thinks it looks like a beauty pageant dress. It's not sophisticated. Heidi thinks it's a pageant dress too. Someone fashion forward would not wear this dress. Korto starts crying. Dear Jesus. This episode is very cry-heavy. Georgina thinks that it was a bad fabric choice. Nina thinks it's gilded and overworked and not sophisticated. She thinks there's not much of Korto in the dress. Korto sobs that the dress is her -- it's classic. Er, that's a stretch. Nina gently tells her that she went overboard and threw a lot of elements into the dress.
