Monique asks Christian what his goal was for his outfit. He says that he wanted to create something tailored, European, and sculptural. He feels that it shows he's an innovative designer. Christian is an up-talker, so it sounds a little like he's not sure he believes himself. Monique says that volume is "in," so she really likes the puffy sleeves on Christian's jacket. She also likes the detailing on his skirt. Michael calls it "quirky tailored." Nina doesn't like the fabric, but she loves the silhouette. Heidi says that it grows on her.
Simone says that she was trying to mix modern and traditional. Nina asks her to take the jacket off the model. She points out that the construction is for shit, and Simone agrees with her and says it was because she didn't have enough time. Michael thinks that the shrug doesn't work with the rest of the outfit at all. He thinks it looks like she got dressed in the dark. Bitch grew some longer claws for this season. Monique says that she was bored by Simone's design.
Monique loves Rami's dress. He tells them that he used silk georgette because he wanted to use something new and romantic. It's a signature of his, he says. Michael thinks that the flower on the dress is "M.O.B. -- mother of the bride." But, they all agree that his design is very chic.
Ricky explains that his background is in lingerie. Nina says it's "sweet" but "safe." Heidi breaks it down and says that it's boring. Michael tells Ricky that he has to "push it."
Monique says that Victorya's design was sweet, and she loves the flower. Victorya adds that she wanted something fresh and that the flower was to offset the black in the dress. Michael says that Jacqueline shouldn't try to hail a cab in the dress, and we find out that the straps around the arms actually prevent her from raising her arms. Victorya says that you have to make sacrifices for fashion sometimes, and Michael agrees that he knows women who would bleed if the dress was right. I agree that we should really promote this sort of behavior.
Elisa is asked what her point of view was. Her reply included the following bits: "vibrant," "alive," "sylph-like," "aerial," "water," "air," "simple," "beautiful," "cascade," "[swirling noise]." Though stunned, the judges continue. Nina points out that the train drags the rest of the dress down. And the model tripped. Michael likes the color of the dress and the sleeves, but hates the train. Monique says it doesn't look like Elisa knew when to stop. Elisa reveals that her intuition was to cut the dress off at the bottom, but she didn't do it. Heidi seems thoroughly freaked the fuck out by Elisa. Love it. Michael tells Elisa that she should always follow her intuition.
