Everybody scrambles for the final two hours. Everyone except Elisa. At one point, Sweet P asks, "How does my dress keep shrinking?" As Simone scrambles, we hear her say that she likes her design, but there are technical problems with it. Tim told her that the final success of her design would depend on how much she could accomplish technically. I like her -- she seems really nice. ["And she was in Duran Duran!" -- Sars] She says that you can't be good and have things be easy all the time. When time is up, they wake Elisa and head back to the apartments.
The next morning, HOLY MUSCLES FROM BRUSSELS, Jack is shirtless and pantless and applying lotion. Hey, Daddy. He interviews that everyone was very anxious about the impending runway show. Pointed cut to Elisa as she does some yoga, and we hear an interview where she says it's a challenge for her to make her design look "clean."
When they arrive at Parsons, Simone says it was a high-pressure atmosphere and she was feeling a need to focus and get her stuff done. Carmen says that she's nervous about some finishing touches the she has to complete. Also, she's worried about the fit, because they haven't even seen the models.
Tim enters and wishes the designers good luck. He says that he is about to send in their models, at which point they will have two hours to process them through the Tresemme hair salon and the L'Oreal Paris makeup room. He also advises them to make good use of the Bluefly.com accessories wall. Also tucked away at Parsons are the H&R Block tax den and the Jiffy Lube colonic parlor.
Here come the models! As we see them finding their assigned designers, Chris interviews that he was very happy with his model. "This girl is gorgeous!" Victorya is very happy with her model too.
Now, the moment this season will have to live up to from now on. Elisa tells her model that she needs to hand-measure her. Then she…measures the girl's height using her hands. Like, when she's done she'll be like, "Mandy is seven and a half hands tall." And when she's measuring the model, it looks like a mix of dance, witch-doctoring, and molestation. It's one of the most amazing three seconds of television we are likely to witness this year. I love Elisa. Unless she's a brilliant actress, she is totally authentic with this crap.
Steven's model is having a hard time fitting into his design. Jillian's model tells her that she loves the color of the design. Christian's model tells him that his design is "very London." He responds, "I know," as if he's being criticized, but the girl is like, "I love it." He interviews that his model loves his outfit and so does he.
