Tyra Mail! Nik opens it: "Pluses and minuses -- Who says models can't do math? Be ready at 12:00 PM." Then, the girls discuss whether they are good at math or not. Do they...really think they're going to be doing math?
The next day, the girls are driven in that white Humvee limo thing to Smashbox. Lisa blows a weird kiss to the freaked-out limo driver as they are walking in. Jay Manuel tells them that Smashbox is the home of L.A. Fashion Week. The girls are not impressed. He continues to explain how important Twiggy was to the fashion industry, since her thin figure was very different from those of the working models of her time. I know you can gauge culture with fashion and that's fairly important to anthropological studies, but Jesus, Jay! Twiggy is not Charlemagne. She's a footnote to a chapter of pop culture, not a pillar of Western civilization. He's acting like she invented breathing or something. Diane says, "Yeah, I know who Twiggy was. She was the supermodel who changed the whole skinny industry [sic]." Then, she arches an eyebrow and laughs. That was some unclear communicating. I guess she was dryly making a joke because Twiggy is skinny and Diane's larger, but it was really weird. She needs to loosen up. Jay proceeds, saying that nobody is perfect and thatyou have to learn to turn your flaws into assets. And, Twiggy is going to help them do that. Twiggy comes out and says it's nice to see the girls close up. She seems really sweet. I like her army green jacket. Kim does, too. She says that Twiggy is a role model for her, and that it seems that Twiggy genuinely wants all the girls to do well. I'm going to take this time to say that, though I know there is some major hate abounding for Kim in the forums, she can be really freaking gorgeous. Sitting on the sofa at Smashbox, she is incredibly hot. This is compounded by the fact that she is sitting next to Lisa, who is wearing that fucking trucker cap and knee-high boots. Now, Lisa looks like Taylor Dayne. Why is she making me do this?
