The first casting is for Anndra Neen, which is apparently a jewelry line. The girls walk as Cutrone skulks about and watches. One of the Anndra Neen designers, Phoebe Stephens, explains that all of their jewelry is handmade in Mexico City, where they are from. There really are some lovely pieces. The other designer, Annette Stephens, explains how important the models will be, since if anything happens to them on the runway you lose the entire look. And with that, Catherine walks directly into a chair and almost falls. This is not good. She confessionalizes, "Please book me! I promise I won't actually do this in the show." Well, I'm sure the designers will take her word on that.
Next is the casting for Giulietta. Designer Sofia Sizzi explains that the collection is vintage '60s-inspired, and that they're looking for a girl with personality. You know who doesn't have personality? Eboni. Cutrone describes her performance as, "Robots on Oxycontin." Well, isn't that what the 21st century is all about? We then go to the casting for Julian Louie, who tells the girls that their walks should be straight and clean. He thinks that Annaliese is incredibly elegant, sophisticated, and refined, with a lot of potential. As all the girls walk in a line, Cutrone tells Laura not to look so serious, since it's only fashion. That's perfect advice coming from her, because she's so fun and light all the time.
Next is the casting for Siki Im, who tells the girls that he used to live in Oxford. That's where Sophie is from, and she smiles and giggles and chats about the whole thing, as you do. We then cut to Alisha confessionalizing that there's a bit of fakery going on, which she doesn't appreciate. This isn't acting class, she says, so there's no need to overact. I kind of doubt that she's actually talking about Sophie in that clip, but who knows. The effort to build up a rivalry between those two leads me to believe that they may be the final contenders, which is an exciting prospect. Siki explains that he'll be presenting a menswear collection, so it's important for the models to feel the vibe of his clothes. When Seymone walks, Siki asks her not to move her hands from side to side so much, and then Sophie does a really fantastic impression of hand-bobbing, lick-lipping, crazy-looking, catwalking Seymone. You know who is not thrilled about anyone today? Cutrone. She says that all the girls need to step it up, and there was not one "slayer" amongst the bunch. She didn't see a "Bam!," and as she expresses her frustration in a raspberry-esque fashion, we head to commercials.
