Qristyl's dress is out first and it is not quite the disaster I had anticipated. It seems to hang well, in any case, and Valerie would look good in a flour sack, so though it is not exactly exciting, it is okay .
Nicolas is thrilled with his white sheath dress with a high, futuristic collar. His model, Celine, looks fantastic and he feels like he has a chance of winning the challenging. He also feels like his dress is very well-tailored, although there is some gapping on the sides of the dress when she arches her back too much. Still, it looks great, if not a tad Trekkie. I mean, just a little -- her severe hairstyle is making that more noticeable.
Irina's dress is out next, and... I have concerns. She is one of the only designers to have used a pattered fabric for the dress, and it is quite pretty. Or, at least I think it is, but it's hard to tell because of this belted shrug jacket she has over it that makes the whole thing come off really boring to me. With her little clutch purse, flower belt and conservative shoes, she looks like she's going to Sunday School.
I love Gordana's dress, a gold sheath with a woven front. Unfortch, the fabric plus the model's pale skin and blonde hair makes the whole thing wash out a bit. I feel like Gordana's model could sell it a little better -- she's the only blonde on the runway and even though they've paid about two total minutes of attention to Gordana's designs so far this whole season, I feel like this girl should be more memorable.
Shirin's dress is okay, as well. The royal blue is beautiful and the design is nice enough and fits very well. I'd say more but I'd have to use slo-mo to see it, since they literally show it for two seconds.
I'm not sure why Logan's model, Kojii, is so fond of the extra-long side ponytail/heavy bangs/I'm going to eat your soul look she is always rocking. It's certainly not doing her any favors today ash she rolls out this dress looking like she put one of those fake pregnancy bellies on under the top. The waistline of the dress must have two bolts of lace wrapped around it.
Though I think Christopher is a sweetheart and quite talented, his lettuce wrap is killing me a little. He's quite pleased with it, though.
Matar comes stomping down the runway, showing Epperson's dress off quite well. It turned out to be a sexy little number, indeed. I don't really get the back -- there seem to be about nine extra straps and cross-ties and crazy strings, but the fabrics he used look great on screen. He feels like his aesthetic and the model's matched up very well, after all.
