The girls go to a club of sorts and meet Sue Wong, who professes herself to be a designer of very dramatic and glamorous evening wear. We see some of her stuff, and it is costumey but kind of awesome. She says that the girls will be tested on their ability to walk in a runway presentation. A circular moving platform is at the very front of the runway. Lisa interviews that the whole setup made the challenge very difficult. Sue says that the winner of the challenge will "have the privilege of borrowing this really gorgeous gown," which Tyra wore to Oprah's legends ball. The dress is horrible, with a ton of white feathers on the bottom that make it look like the bodice is molting. Tyra didn't look good in it either, and I bet she left pit stains on it, and perhaps some rib sauce.
The girls go into hair and makeup. There are Cover Girl products aplenty. Kim interviews that she is nervous about walking and could have done without another day of runway. Sarah is nervous too but says that her new plan is to walk very slowly so as not to fall. She is wearing that ugly wifebeater that all the girls have with their names airbrushed on with pink lines and stars. Fashion!
Coryn walks first. When she gets to the end of the runway, Sue Wong says to her, "You are Sheherazade and you are in Northern Africa." Say what? She then interviews that Coryn is not very conscious of her environment, which you must admit would be hard if you are spinning yarns each night to save yourself from being beheaded. Nicole is supposed to be an exotic Mongolian princess. She stumbles a bit and can't stop laughing. Sue tells Lisa to be a beautiful Indian princess, which Lisa eats right up. But really she had to add "beautiful" as an adjective in this fantasy role-playing for a reason. Lisa interviews that her runway walk is sexy, confident, and playful all at the same time. Sue tells Kim to be more graceful and elegant. Kim says she wishes the clothes hadn't been so feminine, but that she does want to model so will continue to try to work. Did she think they were going to have her model Dickies? Put on the dress and enjoy it. Sue says that Kim lacks confidence, which will hurt her on the runway. Kyle is a little rough getting onto the moving platform. Diane is looking too Egyptian. Jayla has a limp wrist. Nik is supposed to be "on the steppes of Central Asia someplace." Then Bre comes marching in. She interviews that she was feeling the atmosphere and was Dorothy Dandridge, and no one could tell her differently. This confidence works well as Sue tells her to be bold and dramatic and beautiful. Sue says that Bre shows a lot of promise, and that her attitude can take her far. Cassandra interviews that she could care less that they were doing a runway show. Sue says that she's too stiff and contrived, which is a spot-on assessment. Sarah gets a big heavy wedding gown and headdress, which does wonders for her walk. She stumbles, she flails around, she looks generally awful. Sue says that Sarah is awkward and needs to work on her gracefulness. And I kind of think that grace is something that can't be learned, especially when you have the shoulders of Lou Ferrigno.
