At Mood, the designers begin their work. It looks like Emilio is going with yellow. Josh finds a black and white leopard print, but he knows that Leslie doesn't really like graphic prints. So, he decides that he will dye the fabric. Anthony Ryan finds an ombre fabric that seems very feminine to him. Uli can't find a purple print that she likes. How did I know that would be a problem? She decides to go with "classic colors" black and white and she hopes that she likes it. That Uli. You cannot get her away from the white.
Back at the workroom, Anthony Ryan restates the hard part about the challenge- this dress isn't for a thousand women; it's for one woman. The dress has to be perfect for this one woman. Josh suggests to Anthony Ryan that he will be boning the bust of his design. Anthony Ryan says that he has boning and canvas. There will be a lot of engineering in the boob area. I don't know if it has been expressed yet, but Donna is gifted upstairs. And, I'm not talking about her brains, though she does seem like a very smart lady, at least if seriousness is a measure of smarts. She seems very serious and she has large breasts. And, she likes to hide them. He's feeling some pressure from these boobs. He is working really hard to compliment her figure though and he doesn't seem lost at all.
Josh needs to test dye his fabric and asks Anthony Ryan how long it will take to dry. Sounds like someone has never dyed fabric before? Anthony Ryan warns him not to get it on his hands, because it will stain them. Josh, walking towards the sinks or wherever, whines, "I have to wring it out with my hands?" Heh. Anthony Ryan laughs in an interview that Josh is afraid to touch the dye (well, you're the one who scared him) and he says that it's Project Runway: All-Stars and he's just going to have to get his hands dirty. Uli says that Josh's experiment with his fabric is the biggest risk that anyone is taking right now.
The designers are plowing ahead. Emilio says that he's designing a dress for Lisa(r). I love it when people put an "r" behind a word that ends with "a." Much like I love when people lose the "t" in the middle of words, like how Brittany Murphy (RIP) says "Elton" in Clueless. Emilio says that Lisa doesn't want anything flashy, so he is working against type. As Uli is working, Josh asks her if she is just using the monochromatic scale. He giggles but you know he means it. She says, "Of course." He replies, "Gorgeous." He's gonna be so mad at her if she wins. It's funny, Uli relays the story about how Jessica said she liked the dress that Uli was wearing and she starts laughing like it's unbelievable. And, really, it sort of is. Remember how they got the '20s challenge right when Uli was ready to purge herself of her feather habit? It's like she's Al Pacino in The Godfather, Part 3. She tries to get out but they keep pulling her back in. So here she is, ready to try something new and the girl tells her that she wants the dress that Uli is wearing. It's too perfect! Uli says that Jessica wants a "long, flow-y Uli dress."
