Pamela's bustier dress is next. It looks like faded denim. The back is supposed to be laced up, but is coming undone. The seam is off and does, in fact, make the model's ass look big. Pamela is so happy with the job she did dyeing that she doesn't seem to concerned about the wonky construction.
Afterwards, Heidi calls Pamela, Mila, Ping, Jay, Jesus, and Amy. The others are free to go! The models return to the stage. Heidi starts the conversation with Jay. Michael thinks that he did a fine job with the feathery skirt business. Lauren breathily intones that she does believe he has made burlap look expensive. She seems fun but kind of ridiculous, no?
Nina thinks that Pamela's dress is too short and tight for her model. She also thinks it lacks sophistication. Michael says that a plain potato sack untouched by Pamela would probably look better on her model, though he commends her for her dyeing job. Heidi asks the model if she would be comfortable wearing the dress to an industry event. She stammers, which Heidi (correctly) takes as a negative.
Mila says that she pushed herself to make something futuristic. Heidi loves it. Michael doesn't like the gaping in the neckline, but Heidi does. Nina says that it looks fantastic.
Ping gives some cock and bull story about how her model's skin doesn't contrast with the burlap. She starts to get emotional and the sweet model says, "I like it, Ping." That was nice. Alas, they point out that you can see the model's ass. Ping says that she didn't understand the directions either -- she thought "industry" party meant county fair. So, I'm gonna just go ahead and call bullshit on that one. Wha? So, someone would wear this ridiculous get-up to a county fair? No, Ping, they wouldn't, you big liar. Heidi concedes that Ping has an edgy eye, but wonders if it translates into real fashion, whatever that is. Lauren says, "If she keeps working, it will." That's encouraging. Nina says that she has a lot of competition and I'm not really sure what anyone means. They are all speaking in vagaries. "Real fashion?" "Keeps working?" "Competition?" On the show? In the world? Be clear, bitches.
Heidi asks Jesus what percentage of his look is ribbon and what is burlap. He explains that the entire skirt is covered in ribbon (he used a dark ribbon with the green, one that is the same color as the dyed burlap of the bodice). Heidi no likey. She doesn't see the challenge in his look. Lauren says that dresses should be like paintings and his dress is "an assault-on-the-eyes painting." She clearly didn't intend for that to be as funny as it was. Nina thinks Jesus needs to get cooler and younger.
