Holy crap! Now The Lady Gaga has taken her sunglasses off! I didn't know that was possible. DSquared2 say she's going to pick a fabric from the Trim Room that "embodies" her "style," and the contestants must somehow use it in their designs. Even though those designs were supposed to be about the contestants and not about the product of a music marketing hype machine. L. Marilyn interviews that she's worried that Lady Gaga's "space age" taste will clash with L. Marilyn's good taste. She's right to be concerned, as The Lady Gaga emerges from the Trim Room with a bright red vinyl fabric that I don't think anyone likes. Not even DJ Eric.
With that, The Lady Gaga gets the hell out of there and DSquared2 check in with the teams. Team Dandy is up first. Dandy shows off his shade wrap thing that will go over the dress, and DSquared2 ask if it's really necessary. Well, no. No one needs a shade wrap thing on their dress. But if we were really going by what is "necessary" then we'd all be wearing sweatsuits, wouldn't we? They hate Team Dandy's approach to incorporating the horrible The Lady Gaga fabric selection even more -- he's wrapping the material around the base of those peacock feathers he's been threatening to use every week. L. Marilyn doesn't have a dress or even a final design to show to DSquared2, so she shows them some rejected sketches instead. This pisses Coco off. Because everything pisses Coco off. L. Marilyn asks Coco to sketch the final idea for DSquared2 to see, but Coco does not respond. Instead of actually refusing to do it, she just stands there being passive-aggressive while clock ticking sound effects play. DSquared2 care not for this woman drama, and run away.
Louanna admits to DSquared2 that the red vinyl fabric is really throwing her off, as it clashes with what she's doing both color and material-wise. DSquared2 encourage her to be "more clever than the challenge" and "do what you need to do." I think they hate the fabric Lady Gaga picked out, too. They also seem to hate what DJ Eric has planned for the red vinyl, which is to make it into tights. "Really?" DSquared2 say with the most disgusted looks on their faces.
And then I guess they stopped by Kathy and Merle's stations, too, but who cares? Let's check in on Coco and L. Marilyn instead! Coco whines that L. Marilyn's idea of a V-design in both the front and back of the dress is "a constructive nightmare." L. Marilyn sighs and wonders why her expert can't just say she'll make something work as opposed to finding every reason why it can't. She decides to just go with one of Coco's design ideas since Coco won't work with any of hers. "Sorry, Marilyn, I so suck, don't I?" Coco says. Dammit, Coco! L. Marilyn is one of the best designers there! Don't you dare fuck her over!
