The next morning, Wesley and his six-pack are shirtless and ironing. In the girls' apartment, they are talking about meeting Nina and Michael. Kelli isn't worried about Michael, but she has reservations about Nina. She doesn't want her to look at her with disgust.
At Parson's, Stella explains that she's going to make a dress. She thinks it might be OK, but she's still worried that she will be eliminated. The models arrive and start getting fitted. Blayne says that his model had more curves than he "knew about" even though they had cards with their dimensions. Bingeing model or Excuse-making designer, you decide.
Kenley thinks that Jerry's look is appropriate for an axe murderer. It's hair and make-up time! Blayne won't stop saying "Girlicious." There is just nothing at all cool about that word. Why won't he stop? At the last moment, Korto pulls out a neckpiece made of produce from the fridge. Stella says that getting ready for your first elimination runway show is not a fun experience.
At the runway, Heidi greets the designers. She introduces Michael Kors and Nina Garcia (the editor-at-large at Elle) and Austin Scarlett. Austin is the creative director of Austin Pool! He does something besides appear on shows! That makes me so much more eager to watch him now.
It's time to get this runway started. First up is Emily's outfit. This is not a great start to the season. It's a shapeless mini dress (made, no doubt, from a tablecloth) with a blue crepe paper yolk for the model's neck. I don't know whether she's going out to a party or to pasture.
Next, we have Jerell's design. Hmm, here's the thing. I kind of want to hate Jerell, just like I actually hate Rayon and want to hate half of this group of designers because they are all so completely, painfully self-aware. However, this dress is pretty cool. It's a one-sleeved patterned blouse over a white skirt. There are textural changes in the sleeve and on the skirt. It's really pretty interesting. I still find him joyless.
Leanne's candy dress is next. It's a short pink dress and the candy is actually pretty cool. Leanne says that she's happy with the choice of using candy, she just regrets having used a tablecloth in the first place.
