Pins are flying as Tim Gunn arrives to check on progress. When Irina shows him her 13th look, a... dress? A skirt? It's black and form-fitting, with tightly tailored layers and looks quite attractive, except there appears to be no top to it. Irina says it fills in the gap of what she's missing in the collection. Tim advises her to watch the proportions of the top when she gets ready to put it on. In re: her felted horse hats, he says his concern is that she not allow it to make things look costumey. Irina says that for the makeup, she'll be having an "almost muddy, dark, dusty eye." Muddy and dusty are two different things. I am beginning to loathe the letter Y, aren't y'all? Costumey. Smudgey. Ugh. Just say real words.
Tim moves on to Althea who shows him her 13th look: a dramatically structured black leather jacket and tailored tan pants. It's a cool look, but Tim rightly expresses concern that if the jacket is not done right, it will look a little '80s. He's might have also noted that it does have a distinct Thriller vibe with the oversized shoulders. Despite all that, it does look pretty cool, and the pants are awesome. Althea says that she is very excited about the makeup she has planned, especially. "Almost messy," she says, "like [the model] has slept in it for a day." Tim says that sounds a lot like what Irina has planned. "That's Althea," Irina says, sotto voce, and I wish ANYONE would just tell her to shut up. Nobody is copying your loud ass! It's just eye shadow. Why can't Althea ever be the one to say that Irina must have copied her? Tim says he just wants to make sure it doesn't look like all the models came from one collection. Of course, they wouldn't, because Althea's models won't be wearing the dominatrix horse hats, but whatever. Althea starts crying a little, saying she's getting kind of overwhelmed. Overwhelmed with hate for Irina? Probably. I wouldn't blame her. Tim says her work is on a trajectory and that this is a make it work moment. "Hang in there," he adds, and moves on to Carol Hannah.
Our little sicko is doing only okay-ish. She says she feels like she hasn't had enough rest, and realizes she won't be getting any. She shows Tim a dress she's doing for the 13th look. It's very beautiful, but -- how can we put this? -- it's been done. Grecian draping. Seen it. The almost-teal blue color, however, is outstanding, and it looks very well made. Tim says he knows she's tired, but that's why it's good that she has Christopher. CH gives Christopher a little high five on that note, and they all buckle down for their midnight deadline.
