After the show, we see Santino talking to the press. He introduces his mom at one point, and almost starts crying. I'm such a sucker for shit like that. I can't help it, I think that's really sweet. Chloe hugs her family and tells a reporter that she feels that she has already won.
Jay McCarroll says that, though he is not a "Dan Fan," he thinks that Daniel will win. Someone named Kay Unger thinks that Chloe will win. Kara Saun thinks Santino's collection was strong. Commercials!
Later, they are all on the runway. Heidi congratulates all of them. Then, the models come out. Debra asks Daniel what his "story" was. He says he wanted to match Japanese sleekness with military. Michael says that the dress is pretty, but that there's nothing military about it. Um, I think he's right about that. He says he wanted to rip the pincushion off of the dress. Daniel seems stunned. Heidi says that it was distracting, and Daniel replies, "But, it kept you looking, didn't it?" I don't think that's gonna work for these guys. Heidi says, "But not in a positive way."
All of the judges loved Daniel's thirteenth design. Nina says that his collection showed that he can do a range of things, but it really didn't reflect a theme. Michael adds that he wasn't seeing an Asian influence.
Nina says that Santino's line was "out of character." It looked "quiet" to Michael. Santino tells Debra about his Hollywood idea, which makes Nina say that she felt the collection was "safe." However, she appreciates his attempts at maturity. It is revealed that Santino never saw any of his clothes on actual bodies before Fashion Week. Heidi is disturbed, because "none of the boobs were where they were supposed to be." As a woman who has created an empire based on boobs, you can imagine how offended she sounds right now. Nina tells Santino that he definitely belongs in fashion and she doesn't want him to ever feel differently.
They ask Chloe why all her designs were for evening. She says that she tries to design for all ages. Heidi was not into the shrugs. Chloe says that you can remove the shrug. As well, she thought it created a through-line for her collection. You just been FACED, Klum Seal! ["Good answer, but I'm with Heidi. The shrugs came off lazy and not forward-thinking, to me." -- Sars] Debra loved the thirteenth design. Chloe says that she made a collection of things that she loved.
