Lastly, it's Team Armageddon. Excuse me, "Team Ricky." Their trends were neon, cutouts, and underwear as outerwear. First, the satin was a mistake. It looks very amateurish and America's Junior Miss, circa when the pageant was called America's Young Woman of the Year. Not banner years for the pageant. The first look is a dress of bright red and neon. It's a short red skirt and belt with a yellow bodice. The bodice is cut with a sweetheart neckline, and the cutout trend is represented by a collar of transparent yellow fabric. It does not look well made. The model doesn't look hugely endowed or anything, but the dress makes her bust look itty-bitty. Ricky says that they are giving the look of lingerie, the neon was bringing the collection together, and the cutouts were illusions. That doesn't really explain what I'm seeing. Next up is a black one-shouldered dress. Along the bust are small geometric cutouts and blocks of color interspersed. Elisa says that if she hadn't known she'd made that dress, she wouldn't have known she'd made that dress. I love that. She sounds so crazy, but I get what she's saying. I think she's marveling a bit at the growth that is required of them. That's pretty cool. She still sounds crazy, though. Lastly, it's Victorya's dress. It's a short flowing skirt with a boned corset of blue and pink. It's pretty, but nothing spectacular. Victorya feels like their collection is not cohesive.
With the designers onstage, Heidi tells them that the judging will be different this time. There was a clear winner, so they're just going to say it. It was Jillian. She interviews that she was a little unsure of her abilities when the show began, but now we will keep seeing her in the top and she will keep winning. She has this really flat delivery sometimes that kind of freaks me out.
Back onstage, Team Christian is told that their scores were high enough to move them to the next level, so they all get to leave the stage.
Now, it's time for the nitty-gritty. The models for the last two teams return to the stage. Chris is asked to describe their collection. He's just managed to say what dead trends they were using when Donna Karan slams them for not being cohesive. Michael Kors says that they've made three looks for three different shows. Donna doesn't see any movement in Steven's dress. No liquidity. Nina would have never known it was supposed to be dancewear. Donna loves Sweet P's dress, though she would have liked it to be more exaggerated. Michael agrees. Sweet P is so happy! Nina feels that Chris's outfit is dated. Michael doesn't feel like the shoulder-pad trend was updated for today. Do you think he's feeling competitive with Donna Karan right now? The next time they're stoned together on Fire Island, he's gonna be all, "'Liquidity'? What's with your fancy words? How long did it take me to say that last sentence?" Donna doesn't feel that the "totality" of his garment is flowing. "'Totality'? Who are you and why is your nose singing?" You know they party on Fire Island. Chris explains that he was trying to play with proportion, but Nina doesn't think his work is relevant. Donna brings it all home when she asks Chris how he could be an effective team leader when he can't lead himself. That is sad. Chris looks so upset right now.
