Keith Bryce tells Heidi that he designs for her all of the time. It's kind of creepy. Like he has Heidi dolls that he dresses up lying around his house. He says he judges something by whether or not he imagines Heidi wearing it. Then, he laughs. Creepy? He interviews that he is completely self-taught and was born with the talent that others have to develop in school. Sounds like someone who is a little defensive about his training right there. I can't really put a finger on his style. It looks like he enjoys a streamlined silhouette, but that's the most I can pick out right now.
Kenley Collins, who is 25 and a freelancer, is chatting with Blayne about his tanning habit. I'm not sure that Blayne really gets how we feel about the excessive tanning. She says that her style is loud -- she mixes a lot of prints and plaids. I love her work. Let's be real, there are already tons of Kenleys and she's probably more of a stylist than a designer, but her stuff looks very nice.
Daniel Feld, also in the running for resident cutie, is 25 and seriously a freelancer. Really? In his bio video, he says that, had he not been a designer, he would have been a zoologist. He says that his designs often incorporate nature. It's glamorous stuff and he says that they are always showstoppers.
The next morning at 4 AM, Tim Gunn wakes the designers. Everybody is a wreck. He tells them to meet him in the lobby, where they will learn about their first challenge. Jennifer answers the door of her apartment in a towel and regrets it in her interview. Everyone scrambles to get ready, except for Stella who just puts some deodorant on under her t-shirt. Girl after my own heart.
Tim takes them for a walk down the streets of New York and no one knows where they are going. Finally, he lines them up on a street corner and points across the street and says that they are at the site of their first challenge. They're at a Gristedes. A grocery store. We've come a long way. Rayon says that he never thought about how he would approach the grocery store challenge. And now that he has to do it? Yikes! I hate him. Seriously, if someone doesn't find him annoying tell me who you are and why not.
