Cute Michael is so... well, it's in his name. His little work outfit is making me CRAZY. He's wearing these high-waisted pants with overalls over a tank top, plus a matching flat cap. And a chain and dark glasses. Love it. Copying it. Probably ruining it. Tim thinks that he's moving in the right direction, but cautions him to be both daring and safe. Have fun mixing those, you little nugget. OK, Tim criticizes the neckline of Kristin's garment and she agrees and just starts a-cuttin'. What? Gretchen, looking on, interviews that she doesn't like Kristin's work. A.J.'s using polka dots, but Tim thinks that they should line up. Peach says she's going to make a short skirt but doesn't want to "show the good china." Yes, she did.
Christopher is using a print that Tim loves. Loves it. Christopher interviews that he feels that he's been fairly "steady" in the competition without really taking off. Tim tells Casanova that his dress is tired. Casanova thinks that he has to do well, because he is not "a cat with seven lives." Hmm. Tim reminds him that he needs to think of what woman would wear his hat, and he replies that the hat is too editorial and no one would wear it. Jesus. How has the underside of that rock been? For living? Valerie says that with guidance and his great sewing skills, Casanova could go far. Tim tells Other Michael that he should be worried. He says that he needs to change his design. Before leaving, Tim tells everyone that the winner of the challenge will have immunity in the next challenge.
Other Michael starts over. He's not feeling very confident. Gretchen says that April's work looks like "student work," which I find so fucking annoying. Didn't the Proenza Schouler boys get their start while still students? Close. Anyway, I hate her for that. Like you need some sort of secret pass to be legitimate.
Everybody scrambles and is done for the night (Cute Michael didn't even finish his skirt). Back at the apartments, everybody, girls and guys alike, talk trash about Casanova. Some of the dudes think that Cute Michael's piece looks like cardboard.
The next day, they're all up and at 'em. Other Michael says that he's worried about April, because her pants look like a diaper. Back at the workroom, they scramble. The models enter, and hair and make-up begins. Mondo is having a mustache drawn onto his girl, which I think is pretty brilliant. The make-up artist says, "Have a seat over here, handsome!" to his model. Heh. Other Michael feels happy with his new dress, but Casanova says every girl in Puerto Rico has that dress in their closet. Kristin says that she's trying to convey romance with her design. Christopher mentions that everyone has mentioned liking his design.
