Even cooler? Carolyn tells them that one of the guest judges will be Kylie Minogue. Holy crap. Anthony Ryan responds most rationally and sort of dissolves into hysterical clap/jump screaming. I mean, I try to play it cool but I'd be pretty excited if I knew I was going to be hanging out with Kylie. Anthony Ryan thinks that she's the biggest guest judge in Project Runway history. He must be forgetting about that time Parker Posey was a guest, because recognize.
Carolyn tells the designers to get started and they start sprinting towards the mall-like section of the Seaport. They run up an escalator and Joshua is the first to see that the store that is the center of their challenge is a Christmas store. Santa is waiting at the front of the store. Seriously, how does he get everything done? He's stretched thinner than Rihanna? Uli is worried about how much stuff she has to buy to be able to cover her dress. Most everyone is revealed to be a little freaked out. Joshua says that he's looking for ornaments that can be broken down. Laura Kathleen is thinking about making a mod dress with a lot of beading. So, she's looking for everything that is silver and shiny. Emilio is staying with pink stuff because he doesn't want anything to scream "Christmas." That said, my friend and I were talking recently about how we need to reclaim the green and red color combo for the non-Christmas occasions. It's beautiful and flattering and I don't see why Christmas gets EVERYTHING. Anyway, Emilio says that he's going to try his hardest to stay away from anything even remotely Christmas-colored.
Santa comes out and tells the designers that they have one more minute to shop. Everyone thanks him and Uli adds that she has been a very good girl this season. Casanova is maybe breaking the rule about not pouting. He is not happy with this challenge in the least. He thinks that the only thing he can do with all of the gold and silver and shiny stuff around is to make a live piñata. I'm down for that. He starts grabbing red and gold stuff, but he really has no idea what he is going to do. Emilio says that a big fat white man who climbs down your chimney (pronounced how Schmidt on New Girl says "chutney") in the middle of the night would get shot in his neighborhood. That's called a burglar. He thinks this is very funny, which actually sort of succeeds in the selling the joke to me. At least for a minute.
