I think Maya was more concerned about being thought of as a "derivative" designer at this point in her young life. She just finished fashion school and hasn't found herself as yet. When she talked about her decision it seemed to be more about not knowing herself than about the stress level.
I am one who does like the coppery beaded sheen of Emilio's design. I also think that without the "coin dispenser" acting as a fake strap, the silhouette would have been boring.
YAY! for Anthony and his personality returning to the room. Everyone seemed happy to see him. To me, his silhouette was very similar to what is seen on red carpets, but it works for the photography and must feel comfortable to wear with all the flowing drapery.
As usual, for me, I do like Seth Aaron's creation as a dress. For the red carpet - no. Besides the black he placed what looked like skinny belted runners up the front over each breast and that made the look more casual.
Why couldn't Mila get the bodice to work? And she called that creamish tan a color. LOL The same fabric "blocking" around the hip area was weird as well.
Jay says he can't help but design "big butts". Well, Jay, you are going to have a very limited clientele until the bustle is back in style. The ruffles were also very strange. They didn't flow in one direction and each row seemed to fight the next. A bustier? Again? Isn't that a bit over-done?
Jonathan...Jonathan...from mess #1 to super mess #3. Leaving off the runner of orange-like color might have helped...NOT. Bye-Bye.
