Josh finds this multi-colored floral fabric. It's insane and gorgeous. He says it's like Joshua and the Technicolor Couture Challenge. I think that Olivia Newton-John wrote the score for that. The make their final decisions about fabrics then hit the door. Then, it's on to the Valentino Couture Show! Oh my God, Josh and Anthony Ryan are wearing outrageous jackets. Joshua's is this snakeskin or black lamè get-up, very fitted. It's perfect for him, but I don't know if it's legal to wear during the daytime. Anthony Ryan's is this blue and white Van Gogh-looking thing. I can't imagine where he found it. If two people wore that jacket at the same time in the same STATE, I think there would have to be a fight to the death. Josh said that the experience of entering the Valentino show is an experience that he will hold onto forever. It was everything that he imagined and more. Emilio says that we have the "creme of the creme" of the world's fashion editors. Then, he names, in this order, Joanna Coles, Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington. I mean, that's rich. I love Joanna and all, but...let's be real. The show is gorgeous. Uli loves that there is so much skin showing without the models seeming naked. Josh was fascinated by the cohesion in the show and how the simplest looks and the most complicated looks were still married. Afterwards, Joanna speaks to them and tells them to remember what Peirpaolo said about dreams. Couture is about magical thinking. I actually think what she said is better than what we heard him say, but maybe we missed something. She tells them that they have no time to waste and sends them on their way. And, it's back to New York.
Next, we see the designers in the workroom. Anthony Ryan interviews that he feels like crap. They haven't gotten much sleep and they were just traveling. I always worry about Anthony Ryan a little bit, like maybe he's still a little weak from having been sick. I wonder if that's true. As the boys are having lunch, they discuss how they just got off of a plane and are going to have a mentoring session and be expected to have most of a dress finished in just a few hours. Emilio says that this could be anyone's game.
