My recording seemed to start a tiny bit late, but we are starting with Tim Gunn giving the kids a last minute advice session on their pieces. He gives some specific advice like telling Zachary his prom dress should become two pieces. And they are all going to Mood first thing in the morning for last minute material needs. They have two days before the show.
Did Sam just say “crop tops?”
Tim tells Maya to basically ignore what Christian said about not liking the florals and adding a bright yellow. Zachary removes the big flowers from the end of his disastrous prom dress. Peytie is making a new orange dress to replace the hideous one from last week. Tim says what I’ve been thinking all along about Sam, the separates need to be mixed up and not so matchy matchy. Sam is still missing two full looks.
When the models come, Sam doesn’t have all of her stuff ready to fit. Maya didn’t know how tall her models were. How is that possible? Her shirts have become… say it with me… crop tops. I don’t even remember her having shirts. I thought she had all dresses. Zachary is also having fit issues with his model. Sam is cool as a cucumber. She’s probably going to win after all and they just edited last week to make it less obvious.
Maya went first. Her collection was great. Were there only five looks though? I’m not sure, it was like they deliberately made it too hard to count and I’m not rewinding from the beginning. She pulled out a lot of the floral, which disappointed me because I liked it. Her models were great.
Samantha’s Lesbian Couture collection was great. She used the sunglasses a lot and they really went well with her looks. It was sort of a bit action movie for me. There were three crop tops. It will just be a matter of what the judges are going for as to whether this is the win.
Zachary talks too much at his intro. Every single dress in his collection has a peplum or some other oddball shape to add width and girth to the model’s hips. The last dress should have kept the flowers. The fifth look, a long streamlined dress was his best look. He has always had a terrible color palette. I’ll be shocked if he wins with this. Kelly is a huge Zachary fan.
Peytie had a huge wardrobe malfunction right before the show. Her hand beaded collar detail popped off the back of the models dress and she just had to sew it back on. I loved Peytie’s collection, it was very youthful in design overall. It’s also the textiles that I prefer. To me it was almost a resort wear collection, which I loved.
I still think I would pick either Peytie or Maya for the win. I think Peytie’s collection was a bit more (child) labor intensive.
The judges really liked all the tiny details in Peytie’s work.
The judges talk about Zachary’s pants being better than the dresses. Christian likes the same gown I liked. He calls it a beautiful piece that he will remember. I don’t think they were wild about this collection. Christian mentions the color palette issue as well. The actress judge seemed to say his collection was her favorite but it looks like they cut off the end. The favorite what? Use of straw?
They love Samantha. I did love the aqua dress that she made. I love Sam’s pieces individually. It’s just when I see the entire collection it seems repetitive and a bit less labor intensive than Peytie’s or Maya’s collections. Christian said he did want to see a little bit more. Yes, that’s it.
Oooh cop pulling over a suspicious car outside my window. #GhettoLife
Maya gets raves. They like the cohesiveness of her collection. Christian is unhappy that she didn’t listen to him about a pop of color.
They seems to rule out Zachary right away.
They talk about how repetitive Sam is. So she seems out of the running.
They love Peytie. Nothing but raves. Except for the actress judge. I hate the actress judge.
So it looks like Maya. Except the fake Heidi Klum. Oh wait. The print is going to kill her. They “don’t see the field of yellow flowers.” So maybe it is Peytie?
They line the kids up and send Zachary back stage first. THEY SEND PEYTIE BACK NEXT! OMG!
It’s down to Maya and Sam. They feel like Sam took some risks today? Really?
Maya wins and she was blindsided.
She was the youngest one in the competition.
I think they made a good choice.
