Elisa says that Tim was worried about her outfit, but her client really liked it. She says that the client is the "ultimate judge." That's the sort of thing we say when we think we're about to be eliminated.
Shit. Ricky interviews, while crying, that working with Penny has reminded him why he works in fashion. In the workroom, we see her tell him that she feels really good about herself, and he immediately starts spraying tears out of his head. "Thank you." I CAN'T TAKE HIM ANYMORE. Dead to me.
Kevin offers to help Steven because his garment is so unfinished. Then he does something he says he has never done before -- he uses glue on the hem. He interviews that it made him sick to his stomach. When Tim comes to the workroom to get the designers, Steven's still not finished. Victorya helps him finish, too! Okay, I take back what I said about her. She's misunderstood. Commercials.
The question of the week is as follows: "Which designer from a past season would you want to return?" A) Daniel Vosovic, B) Jay McCarroll, C) Laura Bennett, D) Santino Rice. Hmm; I only know that I wouldn't say B. The rest would be cool to have back.
On the runway, Heidi arrives, wearing a mini-dress that I think is pretty damn ugly. It's a pattern that almost looks like faux bois crossed with jungle, both of which are personal unfavorites of mine. You're in or you're out. She introduces Michael, Nina, and Patrick Robinson, who is head designer for the Gap.
The show begins with Chris, in Sweet P's design. It's really cute. It's an olive-colored halter dress that falls just below the knee. Originally, it was a huge muumuu-looking garment. It looks great now. The bust is feminine and dainty, but has a strong structure to it. And these ladies have lost a lot of weight and all, but let's be real, they're not looking to hang their junk out everywhere. There's still a modesty to this dress, while it's also kind of sexy and flirty. There's pleating along the bust that creates a draping quality over Chris's hips and waist. It's so incredibly flattering. I'm not sure how it would look on a woman who had lost 100 pounds and didn't have the skin elasticity in her arms that Chris apparently has, but I'm going to assume that Sweet P knew what she was working with. She interviews that she's really happy with her design, particularly because the raw materials were so drab.
