The next day is the runway show. Tim wishes the designers all luck. We see all of the models getting dressed. As well, we see Austin doing a little makeup work on himself.
On the runway, Heidi replays last week's spiel about being in or out. She reminds us that Austin is safe this week. She introduces the judges: Nina Garcia from Elle, Paul Berman, and Constance White, the style director for eBay. I guess eBay has diversified, because I'm not seeing the need for a style director at an internet auction place. Does she make phone calls to random people saying, "Fur is in this season. Sell your coat"? She's really pretty, though. The designers will be judged on originality, wearability, and concept. And the show begins.
Robert's piece is first, and it's hot. It's a super-tailored pant suit, in a rust color with orange accents. The pants are patterned in an exaggerated pin-stripe, and the top is low-cut with lapels. It looks absolutely gorgeous on the model, Melissa. It's practically painted on her. She has a scarf tied around her neck to resemble a man's neck tie, and is carrying a cigar. Robert himself, however, has chosen to wear his hair in cornrows today. He looks like Juliette Lewis. No.
Kevin's outfit is next. It looks like a black sack with the shoulder cut out. The model's legs are shown to great advantage, to which he alludes in a voice-over as the connection to the "envy" theme. I guess. There's some intricate beading and stuff near the shoulder and the bottom, but it doesn't seem all that wearable.
Next, is Wendy Pepper's dress. The model is wearing a large mask adorned with peacock feathers, possibly in an attempt to make the viewer totally miss her gross dress. It looks like a tie-dyed nightgown, and who needs one of those? Wendy explains in an interview that she wanted the dress to "exude" envy. She says that a long gold rope that is on the dress is supposed to be a snake, and that "envy always bites you on the ass." It's a shame that Dale Carnegie courses aren't part of the winning package on this show, because if Wendy wins, she is going to need some help making friends and influencing people.
Next is Jay's piece. It's a really punk-y jumpsuit. It's all black and white with lots of shredded fabric. It looks really cool. The writing on it is not totally readable from afar, so its coolness goes beyond what is written on it. Jay says in an interview that he just did whatever he wanted.
