Skunk, for once, correctly applies his powers of Bitch and gives her back plenty of sass. He admits to us that the dress sucks but also doesn’t let Irena walk over the team.
Heidi comes out with a bodysleeve black furry tube.
The usual orange and cannibalistic flotsam and jetsam are ringside, and the guest judge is a nonsequitous Krysten Ritter who has a pretty funny new show running with James Van Der Beek as a caricaturization of himself. Give it a watch!
Elena and Buffi design for Laura – The dress is a little blah but turned out ok, there was clearly a lot of detailing that was rushed but it is Laura’s style and I just love her working the runway!
Christopher and Grandma design for Anya – Anya comes out looking like a two dollar hooker, and then the dress knocks another fifty cents off the price tag. The slit is high, the fabric looks cheap and the gold belt just screams Mall Couture.
Blorpheus and Fabio design for Kenley- The dress is prim and has Blorpheus’ signature pleating, yet still fits the aesthetic of Kenley to a T. It’s clear she loves it by the kick she gives to be oh so quirky. The designers smugly congratulate each other on how great it looks, but it isnot a red carpet dress.
Dmitry and Tara design for April – The dress is a high-necked long mess. They did a good job with the difficult fabric but it is still not entirely flattering. Then again, neither is anything April wears so she probably loves it. Heidi is smiling and the back draping is lovely.
Vampire Bangs and Dreads design for Mila – This dress looks like a misshapen, baggy wreck. I think it probably looks even worse in real life but on TV it translates to frumpy. Mila looks fiercely unhappy, but then again, she always does so maybe she loves it? Team Hair are both cringing.
Skunk and Afrasian design for Irena – This bitch comes out bitching. The dress actually doesn’t look too bad on the runway and Skunk feels a little hope. Afrasian does not and says he wants to eliminate himself. I can’t tell if it’s because the dress is so bad or because it is actually normal clothes he was forced to work with
Urkel and Sonjia design for Valerie – This is the first gown that looks like a true Emmy gown, it is long and gold and fits and flatters her body. It isn’t something that would wow you, but it is completely working.
Heidi tells the lineup that Urkel, Sonjia, Elena, Buffi, Dmitry and Tara are all safe. Sonjia gripes as she heads into the waiting room and I agree. She is being robbed every challenge! Heidi wants to talk first to the groups with the higher scores. It turns out that is Blorpheus/Fabio and Skunk/Afrasian. Skunk slaps Afrasian for doubting his diva-hood.
Backstage in loserville the designers are amazed that the badly sewn Skunk creation is in the top. Christopher is near tears at being on the chopping block and Grandma is mystified that things turned out this way since she felt the task went so pleasantly. She marvels at getting upset over a dress and says if she goes home it would almost be a relief at this point. The designers are quick to scold her and tell her how much they gave up for the show and how badly everyone in the room wants it. They have a point although there is a lot of histerionics involved.
The judges love Kenley’s dress. Heidi and Nina both think it works for the Emmys and is expensive-looking. Michael Kors states the obvious that it isn’t going to wow anyone but he likes that it looks just like everything Blorpheus designs and yet is within Kenley’s criteria. When it comes to Fabio he promises they will at some point see something recognizable as his. Like something he personally pulled out of the trash. When asked which designer should go to the Emmys if they win, Fabio says himself but I’m not sure how he can say that with a straight face. Blorpheus of course thinks since the idea, design and skirt construction were his, he is the rightful winner.
For Irena, the judges really love the dress and how well it is designed for Irena’s body. She does look glamorous and any woman would pick this dress over Kenley’s for a big flashy event. Irena says she likes it but takes a shot at the sloppy sewing. I’m thinking if they win she has to wear it so she is trying to sabotage. This dress is completely made by the Lord and Taylor necklace they added that worked perfectly with the neckline. I’m thinking it is more interesting than it ever would be without that choker. When asked who should go Afrasian says flat-out that Skunk should because Afrasian wouldn’t or couldn’t make this dress himself. Skunk nods and agrees with his snidey little smile that makes me him locked in a room with Irena.
The bad designers are in for it now and Mila tells the judges she is uncomfortable and feels the garment is ill-fitting. Every judge chastises the Bad Hair Twins for not tailoring something or even designing menswear since they are skilled at that. They also hate the earrings and hair extension which seem to have been Vampire Bangs’ idea. When asked who should go home Vampire Bangs says they agreed it was 50/50 effort and they won’t throw each other under the bus. Dreads pipes up that he was the one who started sketching. No honor among weaves!
Christopher now finally has his chance to trash Grandma. He tattles that it took her 12 hours to cut the skirt and the judges are disappointed with that and every aspect of the design. Krysten says it looks like a drugstore Halloween costume! When asked who should go, Christopher of course says Grandma should pack up her Hover-Round and hit the bricks rolling. Especially since she basically said she was ok with that ten minutes prior. Grandma goes senile and denies by spinning it that she meant she has had a wonderful opportunity and would still be grateful even if sent home. Great politics. She then either lies or references footage we don’t get to see by saying that Christopher screwed up the bodice and couldn’t construct the cowl neckline. The slit is way too high and I think I see Anya underwear?? Christopher starts to break down and whimper. It looks like Heidi is a Chris fan because she says she watched him during Runway and he looked sad then too. That might’ve been him looking at her dress though.
