As Jay is packing his things at the Atlas apartment, he testifies that Project Runway has renewed his love of fashion. He is very inspired and, although he was "always the bridesmaid, never the bride" during the challenges, he might "be the bride" at Fashion Week!
We also see Wendy packing like the slob she is. First of all, there are loose, bottled toiletries in her suitcase. Recipe for skirt and lotion soup, I'd say. Also, I see two pairs of shoes on top of all of her clothes. Now, I didn't even need to see it on Martha Stewart's 30 Things Everyone Should Know list to know that you wouldn't want to put your shoes on top of your clothes. Jesus, Wendy. Wendy interviews that she is proof that you do not have to have to be formally trained in order to find some success as a designer. You forgot to add that you have to be amoral, Wendy. She does point out, quite truthfully, that though she was next to last in "a lot" (four times of nine, to be exact), the two that she won were "the two really good times to do it" -- the Banana Republic challenge and the Grammy dress were the two most rewarding wins of the competition. And, someone with talent would be able to capitalize on those wins. We see a picture of Nancy O'Dell wearing Wendy's dress at the Grammy Awards. The skirt is now the same material as the top. It's boring. It's perfect for Nancy O'Dell. I think she took Michael Kors' advice and went to a bridal store to dye her shoes to match her dress. As well, sitting directly beside Nina Garcia as she declared that "no one" wears an outfit colored completely in orange was not enough for it to sink into Ms O'Dell's style consciousness. She only reads InStyle anyway. Fuck Elle. Wendy declares that, if she wins, her life will be changed forever.
Kara Saun is very neatly packing, like a good girl should. She interviews that she has gotten to this point in the competition with her talent and creativity. Hmm, I wonder if she's insinuating something with that comment? Never mind: she clears that up by saying that she won "without playing any tricks or stabbing anyone in the back." Okay, let me just erase those points I'd give to you for subtlety, Kara. She reminds us that she had four wins. Four! That's as many times as Wendy almost had herself kicked onto the streets. Kara Saun finishes by saying that she is very excited for Fashion Week.
