For this episode the designers, still in Paris, are challenged to design an evening gown using classic couture methods for detailing and finishing (Read: by hand). They are given only TWO DAYS to complete this project. One designer poorly opted for Malan-style ruching of the bodice of his gown, and yet another sadly resorted to not a needle and thread to finish his hem, but a bottle of GLUE. No, no, no, no, no!
Here's the winner:
And the loser is:
Here are the others:
Laura is definitely going to be showing at fashion week this year. People Magazine made an oopsy last week and stated that she is "currently at home on a break during taping," which means that she is working on her collection, otherwise she would just be off the show, not on a "break". As far as the other three go (remember the top four designers will most likely be showing, though only three will be eligible to win), at this point I'm still betting on Uli, Michael and Jeffrey. There seems to be a change of direction as the judge's favor goes, and I'm guessing that Jeffrey is going to be in the top three, and that either Uli or Laura will be the wildcard fourth designer. Unless of course, Laura just freaks out tonight designing for the mysterious "Olsen twins" and gets Auf'd instead of Kayne. Wouldn't that just be a surprise? ; )
Till next time,
