Next up is Jay's design. It's a dark cocktail dress with Dior-style frill for the skirt. It's really cute. Unless this isn't reading on my TV, it looks like he corrected the color-- it looks black to me. There is blue trim on the skirt, but it doesn't look navy. The back is bare and it's really gorgeous. It looks very expensive. Jay thinks it looks very "Jay." He enjoys branding himself, I'm noticing. That's probably a good thing.
Here's Emilio's dress. It's a simple cocktail number with a pencil skirt ending right at the knee. There are red and black ribbons running up and down the dress in asymmetrical placements and it is strapless save for two halter straps made of the same ribbon. It's really cute and Emilio's penchant for sweet, girlish clothing is becoming clearer. Emilio feels that he and his model were both satisfied.
Now we have Jesus's look. It's a dress with a plunging neckline and a skirt to the knee. He has placed green ribbon over most of the skirt, at an angle. The rest of the burlap that is showing is dyed black. The straps of the dress criss-cross in the back. Because of the angle, there is a swath of black burlap on the right butt cheek of the model. It's very odd and unattractive. Jesus says he's happy with the dress, but worried about what the judges will say. Jesus is weird. I see all sorts of half-thoughts going on in this design. First of all, the green of the ribbon is weird. And, it looks like he didn't consider what the back of the dress would look like (He maybe should have put the zipper on the side? So the weird burlap thing wouldn't have happened on her ass?). This is a failure. I'm thinking that this dude just doesn't have good taste.
Here's Jonathan's look. It's a slim dress of burlap, with halter straps and a black brocade applied to the front of the dress. It looks really well built, especially at the bust. Kinda boring though. He's really thrilled with it though and it's definitely good enough to get through to next week, so carry on.
Oh my God, here's Maya. This dress needs psychotropic medication. It's got a Vivienne Westwood feel to it. It's a strapless dress with what looks like three skirts mashed into one. Lots of odd pleating and bunching here and there. Orange, gray, yellow, etc. Many colors were involved in the making of this look. Maya says that it was not her proudest moment, but she's happy with the outcome. Michael Kors looks confused.
