Hair and makeup time! Afterwards, we see that Kevin has finally finished his look. Jillian interviews that she feels bad for doubting Kevin, because his work was great. He tells her that he knows it's hard to trust that last-minute-magic stuff. It's also hard to trust that Kevin's head won't leave ink stains on his pillow at night.
Christian thinks his collection looks "ferosh." He kind of creams over his collection in his interview, and I hate him for it and I don't know why. Why do I begrudge Christian his silly talk? There are certainly worse things a person could do. I don't know what to say. I just have a very hard time taking him seriously when he talks like that.
Tim enters and has everyone gather round. Meanwhile, we hear Christian's critiques of the other collections. He finds Ricky's "horribly ugly." He's right. He doesn't think Chris's is any better. He also thinks the jacket on Chris's look is "pure costume." He's right, but he's so not the person that should be saying this. His eighties look from the SJP episode would have been over-the-top in Dune. Christian doesn't get to tell us about what's costume. But then he says, "But you never know, the judges might die over it. Or, they might die because of it." All's forgiven, goose.
Commercials. Here's our question of the week. What past fashion trends do you still like to wear? A) Leggings, B) Shoulder Pads, C) Overalls, D) Underwear as outerwear. I'm going to guess the answer is A), though God knows there are plenty of my classmates from college that probably still own their overalls.
Heidi greets everyone on the runway. Blah blah, in, out. She introduces Michael, Nina, and DONNA KARAN. Donna gives a wink and a wave. All of the designers seem really impressed. I realize there's been a lot of discussion about it, but...bitch looks pretty damn good to me. She's, what, 70? ["However old she is, it's too old for that top. She herself looks great; that blouse is no good." -- Sars] I'm exaggerating, but she's not an ingénue. And come on, she's pretty sexy! I don't know; I'm feeling kind of hot for Donna Karan right now. She's all sexy with her shoulders and her hair and her gold chains. And the wink and the wave really got me.
The show begins with Team Jillian. Their dead trends were poodle skirts, overalls, and the '70s flare. The first look is a pantsuit in denim fabric, with flared legs. It's also an overall, though the straps are really thin. Underneath the overalls is a transparent top with ruffled cap sleeves and a bow at the neck. It's very stylish. There is incredible pleating all over the suit, which I guess is the poodle-skirt element. I'm guessing the whole pantsuit thing was the '70s element, though it's much more 1930s. Whatever, it looks fucking amazing. The next look is a denim short, with a halter top that has a poofy neck -- poodle-skirt element, I'm guessing. The last one is a poodle dress that resembles denim overalls. All three designers are very happy with what they've accomplished.
