Gunnar asks his client Kim's friend Catherine why she submitted Kim for the makeover. She says that Kim has a great big personality and she feels like her look should match her personality. Gunnar asks Kim why she's apprehensive and it looks like she's not. She says that she's really excited and has always wanted to do something like this. Gunnar interviews that he thinks it's important to design for the everyday person. He starts to take her measurements and we hear Catherine tell her to stop crying. Oh my gosh, she's crying. Gunnar stops and asks her gently why she's crying and she says that it's because she's happy. Gunnar asks her if he can give her a hug and then they embrace. Well, if that's not the sweetest. He tells her that this experience is going to be so much fun and he's going to make her into a fox. You know, he's a little prickly a lot of the time, but that just made him look really good. And, he's maintained from the beginning that he designs for the normal person. We're seeing him connect with his demographic personally here, even if he's not always great at connecting creatively. Gunnar interviews that Kim is going to be his driving force for this challenge. He says that it's odd how someone can step into your life at the right time and really affect you positively, even if they don't realize that they are doing that.
At Mood, Tim takes this opportunity to remind the designers that the success of the challenges begin and end at Mood. Fabio says that he has an image of shades of gray. Oh God. One of the mannequins is like, "I didn't think it was really that hot... OK, I'm lying. I thought it was really hot." The other one is like, "I still don't see why Matt Bomer can't play the lead in the movie." Fabio finds what he's looking for. Ven says that it's very hard working with plus sizes. Seriously? A plus-sized model could be hiding behind Ven right now and we wouldn't even see her. Anyway, you apparently can't design the way you want when there are fat people wearing your clothes.
Back at the workroom, everybody gets to work. Nathan explains to Sonjia that he's creating a dress for a performer. I have to say, Nathan's really sweet for not being judgmental about his client's requirements. Naked tummy and sophisticated are just not part of the same look. Nathan's just trying to give her what she wants, which I admire but I think could bite him in the ass.
