With the readings done, Miss J. points the girls in the direction of tables containing makeup, accessories, and fabric. They will have ten minutes to create a new aura with these materials, and the girl who is most improved will win a spa treatment (with a friend!) at the MGM. Laura's strategy is to go simple, to offset the chaos in her life, and so she strips her jewelry and dresses in a simple black scarf. Meanwhile, Sophie names Laura as her strongest competition, and says that she'd like for the two of them to be in the finals. Blondes unite! Catherine is having a hard time trying to figure out how to wear the scarf/fabric thingy, and so winds up with a lot of bra showing.
The models each parade in front of Jay and Clement and give a little speech about what they did. Alisha wore a gray scarf, because Clement told her she should wear gray. Inventive! Laura says that the simple form of herself is the best form of herself, and Clement tells her that he can already feel some changes in her energy. Sophie went for bohemian red plus undergarments, to express her fire and passion for winning the competition. Catherine went so far in her efforts to green herself up that she's wearing green lipstick. Clement tells her that this is not a great option, I think less for astrological reasons than fashion ones. Annaliese's wood and water outfit is a hit, and Eboni goes with a red and purple ensemble to represent the fire that she needs to bring out. Clement says that everyone did well in this useless challenge, but the winner is Laura. In a move that further complicates her aura, she chooses Eboni to share in the prize with her. Since they dislike each other, it's a bit of an awkward girls' day out.
When everyone gets back to the house, there is more Tyra Mail. "Prepare to meet some smooth operators. Fierce and love, Tyra." Though the ladies think their shoot might have something to do with dragons, when they meet up with Jay Manuel, he tells them that they'll be wearing gowns made of one of China's most famous fabrics: silk. They'll also be "accessorized" with the producers of silk. Yes, that would be silkworms. And boy, silkworms really are nasty looking little creatures, aren't they? As the girls squirm in the manner of a squirmy slimy silkworm, we head to commercials.
