At the workroom, Tim comes in and tells them that they will only have until 7:30 that evening to work, because they are all going out to dinner! Fun! Christopher says that it will be a nice break from sewing all day, then going home and eating cold food, then going to bed. He's so excited and that's fun to see.
They get to work and Elena is already coming from a place of no. She hates her colors because she thinks they are reminiscent of a marching band. She's afraid that her design looks like an ice skating costume. Well, it's nice to know she has a future in two other arenas, too bad they weren't the ones that the challenge is regarding. She chases Dmitry around while holding her fabric and says that she has been around him too long and is now using blue. He must love that joke. Dmitry wonders why Elena is always making something that she hates.
Ven says that he is keeping the lines from his design very clean. He tells Elena that he thinks the danger in this challenge is over-designing. OK. Has he ever been one to over-design anything? The danger ALWAYS is repeating your mistakes. Don't worry about other people's mistakes. Think about your own. And don't make them again.
Suddenly, we see that Christopher is wearing a turban, sunglasses and lipstick a la Sonjia? It's more Nina Simone, but it's still funny. "What are you looking at?" he asks of Elena who just walks away like he's a weirdo. Something like this needs to happen every year, like when Santino was all "What happened to Andrae?" Some meta joke about the people around them. It's completely necessary and I hope that it continues. Sonjia looks in the mirror with Christopher and says that she loves how this is real life for her and a costume for him. Elena says that he's an effing one-man show. At least there's a show happening. He asks Sonjia how her piece is coming along and she says that she isn't sure, so he asks her what her sketch looks like. "Baby girl, you know I don't sketch." Wha? He replies that Baby Girl should indeed learn how to sketch tout suite. She tells us that while feeling her way through her design, she decides to make an entire skirt out of feathers. "Cock-a-doodle-DON'T" is all I can hear Michael Kors saying right now.
Fabio is at his dress form when Christopher leaps towards him and says, "Stop what you're doing, bitch. Let's go eat!" Fabio giggles and tells him to get out of his face. Everyone, I love Fabio. I love him. I can't explain it except to say that I want to have him over for a dinner party and have him compliment the colors in my kitchen and my magazine subscriptions. And maybe make-out. Not anything serious, if that's not available.
