It looks like they are walking through the Meatpacking District. Blayne says that he has heard that "Mary-Kate" lives there. Terri confirms that she does and that "Mary-Kate" told him that she wants to see him. OK, you know this is Mary-Kate Olsen they're talking about. It seems perfect that Blayne would love her. He interviews that he wants every challenge to involve Mary-Kate Olsen. It can Blayne, if only in your little tan heart. He then says, with what I find to be a shocking lack of irony, that he wants to marry Mary-Kate. Seriously, I'm not entirely sure he is kidding, which explains A LOT. He adds that "who doesn't?" want to marry Mary-Kate, except for Tim Gunn. See what I mean with the sound bite machine bullshit? If you really think about it, that doesn't even make sense. It just has the rhythm of something that in some context (one in which the words were completely different and someone not stupid was saying them) might seem clever. Nothing he says has any real heart. Stella interviews that there are some major-league designers with boutiques in the Meatpacking District. And, that's where they are going.
They enter her boutique and Tim says that they are in the "offices" of a fashion legend. Then, Diane Von Furstenberg walks down this really tall staircase. They play this airy Studio 54-in-heaven music that I've never heard before. Damn, Diane. You got them to make you some new music. All of the designers seem very impressed. Kenley interviews that this is the biggest opportunity she has ever had in her life -- so she starts crying. Maybe a few challenges ago I would have felt a little pang for Kenley being overwhelmed. I'm just not feeling it right now. Diane greets all of the designers and seems genuinely lovely. One of the effects of being rich as shit.
She says that the designers will be designing a look for her fall collection inspired by the movie A Foreign Affair. First of all, holy shit. Diane Von Furstenberg is not bluefly.com. This is a serious prize. But, also, Diane Von Furstenberg must have some sort of hard-core contract with the producers. Is she really going to just let one of them feature in her collection? What if she doesn't like any of their work? Cross your fingers. For which outcome, I'm not sure. Wouldn't it be amazing if Project Runway like destroyed her company or something? Not that I want that to happen to her, but it would be kind of funny if she were all in rags on a park bench (that would require her billionaire husband losing everything too, but dream with me) muttering about those damn Project Runway designers. Diane says that to her, the star of A Foreign Affair, Marlene Dietrich, is the most glamorous woman in the world. Her character is a singer/performer or a spy and has to escape Berlin at the end of the 1930's. She leaves for New York, by way of Shanghai. That's a lot of influences from one movie. But, enough about Marlene Dietrich. Jean Arthur is in the movie and she was insanely talented. There are a few samples from Diane's upcoming collection behind her and you do see some Shanghai, some lounge singer, etc.
