Ricky has his models together and they decide that Marie's hair is easier to work with. Ricky says to Amanda, "Sorry girl. Have a seat." Now, I already hate Ricky because he's just so embarrassingly emotional and...not a very good designer, but his remark right there irritates me SO MUCH. I've watched it like six times now. It's like he really needed her to feel inferior or something. Granted, we just see a snippet of all this stuff, but what else have I got to describe? I hate him. Kit interviews that, since Marie's hair looks like a bird's nest, they will base their design on the idea of nesting. She and Ricky seem to be working well together. She will be team leader since they are working on what is essentially her concept.
Sweet P interviews that they are choosing Sam as their model. Also, Rami is the team leader. Sweet P explains that her mind doesn't really go towards the avant-garde. I find that actually a little shocking. Wouldn't it be crazy if Sweet P got all those tattoos to conform? I realize there are more types of person than avant-garde or conformist, but it's still surprising to me that she doesn't consider herself a little fringy. Rami sketches a dress that has an asymmetrical bodice just like every other design he's made. He interviews that their concept is "hard and soft" which works with the two contrasting styles that are happening in Sam's hair. So, he'll have curvy lines, then free-flowing fabric, like Sam's hair. It sounds like Rami picked a model that worked with what he already does.
Jillian interviews that there was no "chance in hell" that either she or Victorya would cede leadership of their team freely. That's amazing. Most people are just trying to evade elimination. I think both of these ladies are kind of shrill and humorless, but I stand in great admiration of them for that alone. They're using Jacqueline as their model. They flip a coin and Victorya is the leader. Jillian says TO VICTORYA that she's fine with that, but uncomfortable about their story not being solidified. You see? It's okay to be confrontational as long as there is some sort of real objective. I don't know why I turned into Dr. Phil for this paragraph.
Tim takes the gang to Mood. Mark my words, I've decided to learn how to sew just so I can have a reason to go to Mood. I just WANT to! Does anybody feel me? I know you do. Christian and Chris realize that they need a ton of fabric for their design. Cool. 50 yards of organza, which totally means nothing to me, but it will once I learn to sew.
