At the workroom, Gretchen informs Christopher that he's going to have to hand sew a lot of the animal hide garment. This seems to surprise him. Ivy is still psyched. Mondo is excited to show that he can be fun and elegant at the same time. Valerie is feeling limited by what already exists of her look. Other Michael is not happy with his outerwear, so he makes something else. Gretchen interviews that he always makes multiple looks for each challenge and waits for Tim Gunn's input -- then changes everything. She feels that he has no conviction or vision. I have to say, that is the best argument yet against Other Michael. He knows that they're talking about him and suggests that they win a fucking challenge if they have a problem with him. Hmm. Point taken.
Tim enters a quiet workroom. He talks to Cute Michael, who says that he thought his skirt looked cute on his model. Tim is disbelieving and my boy gets a little hot under the collar. Love it. He interviews that Tim has three stages of worry, all differentiated by where his hand is when he's asking a question. If it's over his mouth, he's really worried. He's really worried about Cute Michael. Tim tells Andy that he is more himself as a designer for this challenge than he has been throughout this season, however, he wonders about the fit of his giant pants. He tells Andy that Jackie would not have camel toe. Rarely have truer words been said. Tim feels that Christopher's look is a little anemic.
The next morning, the girls all think that Andy is going home. Cute Michael is feeling nervous, but Mondo tells him he should be fine. Then, he interviews that Cute Michael is the most creative designer in the competition. Mondo is dressed in little black shorts and knee socks with suspenders and a white tank top, which he says was inspired by the Cotton Club. I heard Kit Kat Club, which actually seems more accurate. He looks like the Emcee in Cabaret.
At the workroom, everyone scrambles to finish. Christopher is worried about the proportions of his shrug. Everyone says that they are not impressed with Other Michael's dress. Cute Michael interviews that everyone is elitist in regards to Other Michael because he's not as seasoned as them, but he argues that it doesn't mean that he's not talented. See y'all? Love. Andy's finally getting worried about the fact that the crotch on his pants are completely effed.
The models go to hair and makeup and I'm sensing some chemistry between Cute Michael and the daddy with the mustache who's doing the makeup. It's a gun show in the L'Oreal Paris garage and I swear to all that is holy that I don't usually talk like this. Sober. Seriously though, all of the hair and makeup people look like extras from Shawshank.
