Heidi: "I brought in eleven of my children to be models in this challenge. I'm pretty sure I have more at home. I had some boys, right?"
Awwww! They're adorable!
Tim: "And they're real girls! With real curves!"
Right. Anyway, last week Anthony won with a dress I didn't love but accept as being very appropriate for the challenge. Anna was eliminated for an outfit that was not as ugly as Janeane's but was so boring it was like being hit in the face by an episode of Grey's Anatomy:
Anna: "I've never made three pieces before."
Are you sure? Because this was the fifth challenge, so it seems like you must have made more than three pieces.
Anna: "No, I mean I had never made three pieces that went together before."
Oh. Well, you still haven't.
In model news, Kasey is out and Alexis could be genuinely crazy. Alexis tells everyone that she had this hilarious dream about Megan getting really fat. Shockingly, Megan is annoyed:
Alexis: "Well, I just looked it up and it turns out that dreaming about someone getting fat means prosperity! Not for Megan, of course. She'll just get fat. But the important thing is I'll be rich!"
We start the episode with Janeane being about as upbeat as possible, for her:
Janeane: "I had an amazing opportunity last week and, of course, I blew it."
That's the spirit, Janeane!
Heidi introduces us to her girls and the designers inform us that children are often smaller than adults and they are really frightening. Also, some of the designers don't have children:
Jonathan: "I had my tubes tied."
In the design room, Mila pretends that she's getting along with the other designers:
Mila: "It's so hilarious that everyone is mocking me for always using color blocking in my designs! Ooh, look at me; I only know how to do one thing! Ha ha! See? I'm totally in on the joke!"
Yeah, that wasn't uncomfortable at all. Good for Mila!
After a day of working on outfits for the little girls, Tim tells the designers they will have one more day to make a corresponding look for their adult models.
So, the designers are working and it's Anthony's turn to annoy everyone with his jabbering:
Anthony: "So my mom was coughing in church and everyone was all 'Who is that coughing in church?' and so my mom was all 'Maybe I should stop coughing in church' and then everyone went home and had lunch."
The other designers surgically remove Anthony's vocal cords.
On the day of the runway, the little girls are running around the work room, making little outfits and styling each other and basically demonstrating more talent and creativity than most of the designers:
Jonathan: "It's like Three Mile Island in here!"
Tim gives his final words of advice:
Tim: "Please use the Bluefly wall theoretically."
On to the runway with guest judge Tory Burch:
Anthony - He made two perfectly nice dresses that were not very interesting and didn't seem to have anything to do with each other.
Amy - Weird. The little girl's outfit was cute but the adult outfit was inexplicable. The adult look was more juvenile than the children's look. Also, the girl was dressed for fall and the adult was dressed for spring.
Ben - He made two looks with his signature cap sleeves. I found both looks boring.
Seth Aaron - Oh, my god. Adorable. If he doesn't win this, I will renounce my U.S. citizenship and move to Canada.
Jesse - Both outfits are beautifully made and look good together. The asymmetry of the little girl's dress seemed completely random and the adult dress looked a bit too sexy for the challenge; but, other than that, I think he did a good job.
Jonathan - He used white ruffles for both dresses. The girl's dress isn't great, but I actually like the adult dress. As with Jesse's looks, I don't know where this mother and daughter would be going. A cocktail party?
Maya - She made two nice outfits with yellow jackets. I just don't like them together. The outfits look too similar and yet the yellows are off so that they clash with each other.
Mila - She made A-line color-blocked tunics that are pretty cute and look good together. The only thing I don't like is the print fabric trim on the little girl's dress.
Emilio - He made a really old-fashioned pink dress that you could buy almost anywhere and was way too young for his client. For his adult model, he made a pretty dress in a clashing shade of pink. I'm not impressed.
Janeane - Not that bad, really. But not good. The adult look isn't very well made and the little girl's dress looks like no effort went into it.
Jay - He made two cute purple and black outfits with ruffles. Very sophisticated. He did a great job.
Jay, Jesse, and Seth Aaron are the top three. Seth Aaron's child model loves the purse:
Nina: "THAT IS SO CUTE I THINK I'M GOING TO DIE!"
And Nina's heart grew three sizes that day.
The bottom three are Amy, Janeane, and Jonathan. Michael thinks Jonathan's model, Brandise, looks like she's covered in toilet paper, which she really doesn't. It's actually a cute dress; just not completely appropriate for this challenge.
The judges think Amy's child model looks like she dressed in the dark and her adult model looks like a circus performer. Both are fair complaints. But there is one complaint that I don't get:
Tory Burch: "I don't think orange and blue are complementary."
Well, then you haven't taken a basic color theory class, where you would have learned that orange and blue are practically the definition of complementary colors. Dumb-ass.
Anyway, Jonathan and Amy are safe because they over-designed their garments. Janeane is out because she under-designed her garments. Sorry Janeane! We'll miss that positive attitude:
Janeane: "This won't be the last you'll see of me. I'm sure I'll be doing something in the future. It probably won't be very impressive, but I'll be doing something."
Seth Aaron wins! I guess I don't need to move to Canada. Well, there's always the midterm elections. Anyway, I'm officially throwing my support behind Seth Aaron. He's intelligent and well-spoken:
Tim: "And he smells nice!"
That's right, Tim! I think he's a designer the American people will vote for!
