Episode 5, Designer Emilio Sosa
"I like the fact that he had his scissors in his pocket and was quite willing to chop [the dress straps] off. Honestly, when you're doing a cover, you need a designer who'll do that." -Joanna Coles, referring to Sosa's tailoring of the dress during judging.
"Once you got rid of those silly ties on the shoulder, I think cleavage, color, a nice line all of those things were great." Michael Kors

Episode 5, Designer Janeane Ceccanti
"I'm not getting the sea reference...unless it's a polluted sea with plastic bottles in it." -Joanna Coles
"She's got the seaweed organza, she's got nine thousand seams, all of that going on...I'm going to pass it by." -Michael Kors
"It's not fashion-forward, it's not what [will make] women in America think, 'Wow, she looks hot, I want to be that woman.' It's just too sweet all around." Heidi Klum

Episode 5, Designer Jonathan Peters
Jonathan took a risk with this '70s-inspired romper, and while it certainly wasn't a great look, it was enough to qualify him for the next challenge.

Amy's dress was flirty, flowy, and creatively constructed, but not enough to lift her out the middle.

Maya's design was a bit bland, color-wise, and had mismatched elements — yet the judges still deemed it passable.
Episode 5, Designer Jay Sario
Whimsical and elegant, Jay's stunning dress wafted down the runway but didn't make the cut for the top three.
