On the runway, Heidi enters wearing pants and the hottest t-shirt. There's no guest judge! No guests allowed for this shiz. Viktor's stuff is up first. He shows a dress, with a leather skirt on top. The girl looks kind of heavy in it. Next is some nicely tailored slacks and a top with little mirrors all over it. On top is a blazer that I think is super cute. Last is a gown with his leather jacket on top. The jacket is pretty cool. The gown has a train but hits above the knee in the front.
Anya's stuff is next. She shows a dress with a tropical fabric that has her traditional open back and the inverted pleating in the back. Next, she shows a bathing suit that isn't terribly original. Last, she has a gown that looks hastily made, but I think the styling is still pretty good.
Next is Kimberly's stuff. First is the sweatpants and an off-the-shoulder top that also has a cut-out in the back. Second is a top and skirt with details everywhere. Last is an evening gown that I think is really beautiful and pretty modern. That said, I really have a problem with the other silhouettes. All of her bodices are boxy and I don't like that.
Josh's stuff is up next. He opens with this really great jacket over pink slacks. Then, he has an amazingly tailored black dress. The thing is, it's really low cut but has a little band across the open boob area. Meh. Then, he has a gown/pantsuit? with a plastic halter top. Yes. No. I mean, that's a big idea. But, I'm not sure it's in good taste.
It's judging time and they kill Anya. Heidi hated all of it. She says that her gown looks like she made it in a day. She doesn't like the back, which I kind of disagree with. Michael thinks that her gown shows every imperfection, of which there are many. He thinks that Caribbean glamour should have been her approach, but it looks labored. They aren't crazy about Kimberly's shapes, but they like that she has a point-of-view. Nina doesn't like the styling. Heidi hates the skirt she made. She thinks the bubble butt is horrible. They love Viktor's stuff, but they think he covers up the gown with the leather jacket. He has all these pearls on the sleeves and the judges aren't crazy about it. Also, they love the gown. They make him take the leather overlay off of his dress and they like it much better that way. They like Josh's stuff, led by the jacket that he made. Heidi isn't wild about the nylon belt on his jacket, though Michael likes it. He hates the "modesty tab" on the black dress. They hate the pants portion of his gown/pantsuit. Michael thinks the notion that a woman will let her ass hang out in Olivia Newton-John pants.
