In the prep tent, Tyra tells the girls that she's very excited to shoot them, and that they're going to be creating graphic, strong art -- a piece that can hopefully last forever. She adds that she's decorating her house right now, and the real challenge will be whose picture she'll hang in her salon. And I feel like if she's going to invoke Andre Leon Talley, she should be ready for us to get nostalgic for the high fashion season -- those halcyon days when we didn't know what a "Bryanboy" was. Kiara tells us that she's had pictures of Tyra up in her own apartment, so Tyra putting one of Kiara in HER house would be amazing. What would actually be amazing is if someone was like, "I don't want to be on the wall of her tacky-ass SA-lon!"
So, the other theme of this shoot is that the girls are going to have random shit all over them. Tyra can't be more specific than, "Every girl is going to have their own...thing." Thing! So, basically the prep tent is set up like a yard sale, and Tyra grabs a birdcage and a woven basket, puts them somewhere on Leila's body and calls her "wood." Kristin has a shower curtain draped over her and is deemed "fabric." It is literally a shower curtain. This episode sponsored by Home Goods Jamaica. Laura is "shells," Nastasia is "pipes," and Kiara is "metal." The makeup for the day is very warrior-esque, and the hair has random braids popping out of it and the like. Tyra walks around as each girl is getting done up to give her two cents to the hair and makeup team, making everyone nervous.
