We cringed when we saw Johnny making this Betty Draper jacket for his dress. He nailed it when he said it was too “Easter Sunday.” Of course Qristyl nailed it even better when she said Rebecca Romijn wouldn’t even dust in a jacket like that. It kills us when designers say we’re “too mean.” Have they ever listened to the trash talk they sling around?

So, points to him for realizing the jacket wasn’t a good idea, but we’re scratching our heads wondering why he thought shoving it into her purse was a solution. If he’d been in either the top or bottom 3 the judges would have definitely noticed it, commented on it, and probably made her try it on in front of them.
As for the dress, we don’t love. It’s such a dreary color and unflattering length. That little party favor at the top just looks strange to us.
As does the overuse of piping, which makes the dress look a little cheap. Plus, what’s with the weird blousson effect in the back? What ‘s the point of a maternity dress that’s tight across the stomach but big and loose in the back?

It took us a while, but we’re coming around on this one.
The only thing we really don’t like is the color, but that may just be because it’s a poor match to Erika’s coloring. We’re not normally a fan of twisted fabric, but it’s unique for maternity wear.
In fact, the whole look had some subtle, unique (pun unintended) twists to it, from the strap, to the way it draped in the front, to the black underskirt. It was kind of flattering, actually.
The back is a little bleh, though.

Pocahontas knocked out another short, tight and shiny black dress, earning him his second Heidi award in a row. We’re detecting a theme here.
We have to say, we really do like the top of this dress. It had some interesting detailing to it. Unfortunately, the execution was a bit on the sloppy side.
And while he feared that his skirt was too short (it was), our biggest issue was that it was so tight. Who the hell would wear a pencil skirt in her third trimester?
