Sweet P chooses purple, teal, and rusty red fabrics. Because they're peacock-y? Christian says that he doesn't want to be safe at all with this challenge.
Back at the workroom, everyone gets to work. Jillian has chosen Master of the Argonauts by an unknown artist. The armor worn by the figures in the painting was inspiring to her. She wants to express her edgy side with this challenge.
Chris is going dramatic. We see him explaining his design to Christian, who responds that he thinks the colors Chris chose are pretty. His painting is Marie Francoise De La Cropte De St. Abre, Marquise D'Argence by Jean Marc Nattier. He is going to create a couture version of a French noblewoman from the 18th century.
Christian shows Chris a sleeve that he has made. It's enormous. Chris asks if there is any more fabric left at Mood. Rami interviews that, because everyone knows that two people are going home from this challenge, everyone is over-designing. Whatever gets you through the night, Rams. You're not being Same-Note Johnny by draping the same dress you've made a dozen times already, everyone else is OVER-designing. I understand that it makes no sense to completely change your aesthetic for the sake of a challenge, but the dude has GOT to finds some nuance. If this dress is just like all of the others, I don't know what I'll do. He says that he's not there to make noise, he's there to make beautiful work. That makes a lot of sense, but I'm afraid he still doesn't have a broad enough perspective. At the opposite end of the spectrum, we see Christian try out some black feathers next to his neck to see if they work.
With 2 hours remaining in the day, Christian has already created like five pieces. Jillian asks him if he's making an entire collection. Sweet P thinks it's crazy that Christian already has that much done when she's still making her pattern. Christian tells the "bitches" that it is the last challenge, so he has to do "something." He interviews that he sews fast, and everyone should get over it. He thinks everyone else should be sewing quickly too and, if they can't, that's their own problem.
Jillian is working on pressing some pleats and Christian laughs about how she has been doing it for hours. She says that she is already self-conscious and doesn't need Christian's comments. Christian says, "Ew, don't get bitchy. 'Cause damn!" Jillian interviews that Christian is always monitoring what everyone else is doing and he's always ahead of everyone. She finds him very arrogant. "Jillian, I'm just not saying anything around you anymore. I'm so over it." "I'm so over it too," she replies in that super-dry Jillian way. These are definitely the moments when Christian shows his age. I can totally give it up for Christian being a prodigy and all, but he has seriously got some maturing to do.
