Anthony's gown elicited a wow from me. I have never understood why the judges are so hard on him; he manages to do simple elegance very well. The royal blue is lovely, and the dress is just the right mixture of soft and structural. Bravo!
Wow, I have to say, Emilio's dress is awesome. So THIS is why Nina Garcia insisted on keeping him around. The touch of cranberry in the bodice, the lacy touches on the skirt, the stripy skirt- it all contrasts perfectly.
Seth's look goes the same loopy route as Jay's. Oh my. The model has no neck, her sleeves are too long, and she looks overall like the Mad Hatter. Nacht Gut.
What the hell are these judges smoking? I have not understood Seth's design aesthetic all season long, but they like this look? What the Seth? Heidi and Cynthia Rowley like it, but Nina thinks it's a bit costumey, and Kors sees a little crazy crotch. Anthony seems shocked that Nina thinks his look is a complete snooze from the waist down. The judges all notice his dull fabric, and Kors asks to see it up close. They're shocked that he spent $300 on polyester. Touche. Jay's look is nothing without the jacket, according to Heidi. Nina loves the pants. Oh God, please say Jay won't be safe. Kors thinks Mila's look is impactful, bold, not a costume (really?) and is very Mila. Heidi and Cynthia Rowley adore Emilio's dress, and Michael Kors states that it's his favorite garment OF THE SEASON. Watch that ego swell...
Now is the part where every designer is asked why they deserve to go to Fashion Week, and who they would bring with them. Ooh. Seth deserves to go cause of his tailoring, and would bring Emilio and Jay. Jay thinks it means something that he got this far, and he'd bring Seth and would want to share the experience with Anthony, which draws tears from Anthony. Mila says it's the right time for her. She would bring Emilio and Seth. Emilio thinks he deserves to go because he is God's gift to fashion...well okay, because he has a strong point of view as a designer. He'd bring Seth and Mila with him. Anthony tears up as he says that he has made beautiful clothes, and would continue to do so. He'd want to go with Jay and Emilio.
Phew. Bitch-back: Emilio's dress was an overall stunner. Seth's was true to himself, and innovative. The judges are still baffled at Anthony picking an ugly fabric, but they all agree he has talent. Mila caused some debate- Kors thinks her clothes are always made beautifully, but Cynthia Rowley didn't seem too impressed by her. Heidi seems to be iffy on Jay, but Nina and Kors agree that he has good taste and makes modern clothes.
Ooh, such an intense episode. No time to blog the commercials!
Emilio is in, por supuesto. Seth Aaron is in, and seemingly surprised. Anthony is...out. Mila is...in. Yes. Jay is...also in. Of course. One will be eliminated, a la Rami Kashou and Chris March of Season 4. Rami won that showdown, but who dressed Meryl Streep at the Oscars this year, huh? Anthony classily bows out. Bravo, Anthony, you done good.
Next on: drama galore.
