Anyhoo, the designers are sketching and head back to the workroom with their bag o’ junk. While the designers play jump rope, Elena glares disapprovingly. Christopher is designing black and rainbow anti-bullywear, Jeffrey is making a Lego dress, Elena is sad and crying because this challenge is so hard, Viktor is using feathers like a bird and it’s the only pretty thing in the room. Elena is pissed because he totally changed his design after seeing hers, which looks nothing like his, so…what? Seth Aaron (who is apparently a totally different person than Jeffery), is making a foam suit, and Michael is ironing crayons onto fabric which he has never done before and I suspect it won’t stick the way he thinks it should, and Korto is making a gorgeous pattern out of rubber bands.
Of course there’s a twist. You have to do makeup consultations. What kind of twist is that? Oh, ha, it’s Mary Kay makeup, so good luck making that slop look good.
Mychael’s crayon idea doesn’t really work so he’s going to have to figure something else out, and fast. Korto is also a tad on the frantic side. With one hour left, Elena is loving her own dress and everyone else is loving Viktor’s dress. Thirty minutes to runway and Mychael has nothing for the bottom of his dress. Christopher dives in to help and Irina does not because this is a competition and blah blah blah. Speaking of Irina, she made a giant flower dress. Boring, boring, boring.
The judges this week are Alyssa Milano, Georgina Chapman, Isaac Mizrahi, Academy Award Nominee Gabourey Sidibe and actor Michael Urie.
Irina’s dress is a flowery snore.
Christopher’s dark dress is structurally interesting.
Korto’s dress is so short that I worry about that model’s undercarriage.
Elena’s dress is a cartoon character of a dress.
Jefffrey’s dress fell out of the 80s and hit the ugly stick on the way down.
Viktor’s dress is so pretty and clever.
Mychael’s dress is falling apart on the runway.
Seth Aaron’s dress is kind of cool, and kind of awful, and there’ a kickball on her head so that is pretty much awesome.
Seth Aaron and Irina are safe and sent backstage. Christopher’s black binder dress is a favorite of the judges, and they didn’t even notice the scissors scattered about. Korto’s rubber balls and rubber bad dress is out of proportion, and the binder clips she attached to the dress to hold it together are unfortunate. Otherwise, it’s a nice looking dress. Elena’s plastic binder and pencil case dress receives praise for the pointy boobs. Mychael’s dress is called an “arts and crafts project,” but Isaac loves the colors so who knows. Jeffrey isn’t going to get away with yet another klunker of a dress, especially since the poor model’s bits and pieces are showing. When Viktor starts talking about his inspiration for his very cool dress, Elena is ready to kill him because she invented plastic rulers.
The top looks are from Christopher and Viktor, and Christopher gets the win with his shiny swirly black dress. Jeffrey, Mychael, and Korto have the lowest scores. But they’re all safe because…why? I don’t know. Each dress was bad in its own special way.
