Hair and make-up happens. So, I misunderstood something earlier. I thought we heard that the mustachioed make-up daddy's name was Javier. What was actually happening was I was misunderstanding the pronunciation of "Collier." Can we just call him Javier though? Thanks for making this work. So, Javier fulfills Collier's vision on these model faces. Anya has to rip seams then sew her model into her dress. Josh notices it and thinks it's a problem.
On the runway, Heidi greets everyone. Francisco Costa, the women's creative director for the Calvin Klein Collection, is the guest judge. The show begins with Viktor's dress. It's a gown with some Grecian draping and feathers. Not terribly original, but it is well made. Kimberly's dress is next and it does have a very similar silhouette, though it's more structural and less drape-y. There's a cut-out in the middle of the bust that is young and sexy without being too much. There's a nude panel in the skirt that mimics the cut-out and is very sexy as well. Kimberly is happy with it, though she spots some imperfections. The gowns walk out together. Kimberly says that she thinks Viktor's silhouette is tired and one side of it is voluminous. Viktor thinks that Kimberly's is horrible and not stitched well.
Bert's dress is next. It's a strapless snakeskin top with a flowing skirt that mimics the colors of the parrot. The skirt is just a little too short and Bert doesn't think it flows properly. Josh's dress looks great. An orange sheath that is short and one-shouldered. Viktor says that he wishes that guys could wear stuff like that. Hmm. Something to think about I guess. The dresses come out together. Bert likes Josh's dress, save the flower on the shoulder. Josh thinks that Bert's attempts to not use the colors of the parrot ultimately hurt him.
Anya's dress is next. Holy shit. It's this cap-sleeved black dress that is longer in the back than the front. Lots of structural detailing all around it. Seriously? Fuck everybody and their noise about her sewing skills. This look is HARD and more difficult than half of the stuff that Josh has attempted. That she takes it on in the first place is a testament to the passion behind her vision. Laura's look is next and it's a tailored black jacket that is low-cut with purple fringe. And, tight satin pants. Not a huge fan of the fabric for the pants, though the fit is near perfect. Laura is really happy with it. Both looks come out and Anya says that Laura's look is beautiful, though she's not a huge fan of the fringe. Laura loves Anya's design, but finds the construction problematic.
