Poison Ivy – her model is in a boring gauzy green dress that she thinks is enhanced by plastic rhinestones glued to the neckline. The whole thing reads Legend of Zelda more than Studio 54 to me.
Uli – Her white fringed mini swings out and she calls it “the new Uli”. It’s certainly a departure from her long flowing resort wear and it might be the closest to addressing the actual challenge that I’ve seen. The judges look pleased as well, so my girl might pull this one off!
Josh – His turquoise jumpsuit is the best by far. It pops, looks retro but modern and although it is a little demure for a club it still has a young enough vibe to pass.
Pancake Makeup – She also has incorporated pants and I really like the fit and design of her look. But the material is heinous (which is very true to the 70s) and I’m pretty sure she just made the same pants she was wearing earlier so we have a possible one way monkey emerging.
Althea – Her dress is a bunch of shredded draped pieces of material. She reassures us that although she missed the 70s by a FOUR WHOLE YEARS she still knows what it is. It’s like that thing that happened in that one part of Forrest Gump, I think Jenny tried to jump off a balcony. And that is apparently the same thing as the results of when a bobcat gets hold of a Kardashian.
Kane – His look is reminiscent of the 70s with the wide swooshy chevron print pants and he has sequins incorporated in the tank top. I really like the pants, and the top is fine, but they don’t seem to match. He is pleased as punch and interviews that he thinks it has a very Miami, J-Lo vibe.
Aryan, Emilio, Althea, Pancake, Joshua and Pleather are all middle ground contenders, leaving the rest to battle it out. Ivy is mostly praised but Isaac wants her plastic rhinestones to continue on the back panel and the 9 West mouthpiece likes a shorter skirt on his bitches.

Wendy is up next and she certainly isn’t critisized for being too “pulled together”. The judges are more polite than they probably could be in praising her use of prints and using her 13 year old as an inspiration to pull in a more trendy vibe. The critique is bad though in the lack of concept and messy execution. Classic Wendy!
