Heidi greets the designers on the runway. She reminds everyone that there will be only six designers after this challenge. Heidi looks so pretty right now. She introduces Michael, Nina and guest judge Olivia Palermo, who is evidently a guest editor at piperlime.com. She's a beautiful lady, but I still have lots of residual dislike for her from her days on MTV or wherever. Looks like she's doing something with herself though. Good on her.
The show begins with Kimberly's first look. It's this loose version high-necked '70s blouse. It bares a little midriff and is coupled with a pencil skirt. I don't mind the print at all, but the cut of this thing is a little cray cray. It seems like there is so much fabric! Her second look is a jumpsuit in gray with a black belt and a little cut-out at the belly. It's very cute. There's some really nice tailoring on this thing.
Next is Anthony's look. No. Gross. This burnt orange mess of a skirt and a top. It's hideous. Over it is this black and white tweed print jacket that is so gross. It's not even old. It's blind. The next look is a maxi dress that is simple in its design but comfortable and easy.
Here's Bert's look. He has this shimmering chiffon one-shouldered top over hot pants and a skirt of the same translucent fabric. The shorts are a little short but the top is cute. Heidi asks Michael if he saw that booty and he replies, as if someone had just told him that he was being audited, "I did." The next look is a simple sleeveless dress with a Grecian draping feel. There's a thin rope belt at the waist
Laura's look is next. She has a fitted sleeveless top with black and white chevrons over a maxi skirt in a green and black floral print. The back of the top has a racer strap. Eh. I don't mind the fabric mix so much, but I think it only works from the front. And, maybe it needed some sort of sleeve. I tend to like a mix of patterns, but I don't know. Her second look is a jumper with spaghetti straps. The top is gray and the bottoms is loose and black. Laura loves this.
Oh my. Here's Josh's look. He made a tailored pant and a "man's" tuxedo shirt. A man who wears hot pink and black and I'm not saying I don't but let's not go calling that a "man's" shirt. The pants... this black and white plaid, they are so completely wrong. They're horrible. They just take this lovely woman's body and makes it look malformed. The next dress is a rip-off of mid-'90s Versace, a long flowing dress with constructed bodice and straps. This just doesn't seem '70s to me at all.
