Oh crap, Ivy’s critique from Carolyn is exactly what I was thinking about the slits and color blocking. What’s happening to me??? Ivy’s length is criticized but the fabric praised all around. Elie is kind but disapproving, saying that she misinterpreted his critique but it still turned out better than he feared. Ha! Mizrahi somehow loves this dress.
Oh hey, only the sleeves are sheer today!
Dead Mauth is actually criticized for his color choice. Admittedly, yellows are not universally flattering, but it is glorious when it works. Such as on his model. He gets a little lukewarm praise and mostly told this is not up to par. If there were more contestants left, he’d be doing the safety dance.
Clooney’s favorite elf got the production note to suck up to Aryan and along with everyone else, gushes over his forgettable dress. Yawn.
Joshua is praised for the fabric color and lace applique but the awkward boob pouch is pointed out as well as the zipper bunching. Joshua is sweating foundation and I have to say this looks like the end for him. Carolyn particularly takes him to task for the exposed zipper not being an expensive enough look. They have a supremely catty back and forth and I am actually shocked that Carolyn out-cats him. One thing he says that annoys me is that a $500-700 price point is “moderate”. I know it was said in self-defense, and some would agree with him, but I think somewhere nearby they call those people the 1%. And for a wealthy model to call the price range high end while Joshua, who looks like he finds his novelty tank tops in consignment shops, disagrees seems pretty disingenuous during a recession.

The judges privately agree that Dead Mauth deserves a pass and they can’t choose a winner between Uli and Aryan. They throw out the caveat asking which will sell better, which sounds like setting Aryan up to win to me. Ivy and Joshua are trashed, Elie even calls Joshua’s look “slutty lady” as well as “pregnant”. Guess we know what he thinks about the Virgin Mary.
So Aryan wins. I’m guessing now the fears are valid that we are being set up for Aryan winning the whole thing. And that is a lot of compensation for losing a testicle. I can only hope will eventually be stripped of his win when it is proven he has been doping this whole time.
What I am surprised by is that Ivy was finally sent home. We all know Joshua is next (Shhh, don’t tell me, I haven’t watch the latest episode!), but I think it is fair that Ivy was eliminated after roosting in the bottom three for what felt like the entire show. She stayed classy til the end though and mentions her regrets about her behavior during her normal season so I think this is an overall victory for Ivy.
