Dmitry gets a 10/10 for his tight leather pants! For his design… he explains she is the castle mystic and he tried to combine historical elements of the castle and the clothing… I think he means architectural elements more than historical, but to me she looks like the castle secretary on the Dark Shadows set.
Heidi loves it. Uh oh. Zoe and Kors praise the sleeves and the fit and the talent Dmitry obviously has. Actually no one has any issues except that the collar and shoulders give a little bit of a Vampira effect. Looks like our little leather clad mystic is in!
Unibrow comes up and explains his look. I notice that he is wearing a godawful dress himself, presumably to make his design look better by comparison. I also notice he did a little last minute editing and chose to wear the headpiece his model had walked out of the workroom wearing. Smart move!
Kors likes the top but feels the pants are too “mom-ish”. I guess this show is on past his client’s bedtime so he feels he can speak his mind with impunity. Heidi says she had no connection to the look and felt it was too bulky and funeral chic.
They all love the
reversible flippable jacket and feel it is well done and would be worn by fashion editors either way.
Tara gets high praise from Nina and Kors for her tailoring, colors and being able to make separates high fashion. Then Heidi points out that she finds it a toss-up for ugly between Tara and Unibrow. Er, their designs that is. She says it’s a good job Tara has 2 judges who like her work,when Zoe interrupts to say there are 3 actually.
“Hey, some models have taste!”
Now they all get grilled on why they deserve to show at Fashion Week and who else deserves it too. They all say they want it and deserve it, but have no more compelling reasons than that and Tara says she wants Sonjia and Unibrow with her. Unibrow votes for Tara and Chris. Dmitry votes for Unibrow and Chris, which is a misogynistic choice and proves he is straight! Chris chooses Unibrow and Dmitry because he is afraid of women; which proves he is gay! Sonjia chooses Dmitry and Tara based on their talent in construction.
The judges are a mess now since they vastly disagreed (with Heidi) during the runway. They do two things now that annoy me. First, because of the discord they decide to look back on all the challenges to make their choice which effectually makes this challenge and Zoe pointless. Based on the season, I think it’s Heidi’s opinion that should be discounted. Secondly, they start criticizing Dmitry for always making the same thing (wtf, no he doesn’t), but then critique Sonjia as not having a point of view, so effectively not being one-note enough? Also please don’t highlight the candy challenge as one of Dmitry’s best looks when you didn’t even put him in the top three!
It did deserve it though
