Josh describes making a yolk of fur and trimming it to make it look like a pony. I love that I just got to type that sentence. Joanna responds, "Oof. That is avant-garde." Joanna moves to Ivy and stares at the leather panty on her male mannequin. "Ivy. I need some explanation." Ivy giggles and says that something will be worn over the panty, which is a huge relief to Joanna. She can't tell which of Emilio's outfits is for the man or woman, which they all decide is a good thing.
Casanova's looks are reading very gladiator. Joanna warns Laura Kathleen that the details on her jacket (i.e. the lapels) need to be perfect, otherwise Georgina will eat her. Kayne of Many Colors presents his look along with the leather flowers that he's adding. Joanna thinks that it could be hideous or a showstopper, which is what she said during the last challenge. Laura Kathleen thinks that it looks like a clown outfit. To be fair, he has made a smiley face on the front of his tank. Why would he do that?
Joanna reminds the designers that this is an avant-garde challenge and they should all be pushing themselves. Then, she's out of there. Kayne of Many Colors chooses to push himself at least in the direction of good taste and he removes the smile from the tank top. Casanova manages to bang out some pants really quickly and Emilio is jealous, though he does point out that the ball room is limited. The girls come in for fittings and that's where Casanova runs into a problem. His girl pants don't fit. He's freaking out and Ivy helps him. She interviews that he's her friend before he's anything else, which I think is pretty cool of her. Then, the boys come in for their fittings. Kayne of Many Colors makes his poor boy put on high heels. Maybe that's what his sisters like. Josh, of all people, has to tell Kayne that he has gone too far. As they are all scrambling to finish, Uli wonders if maybe she needs the pressure of a deadline to make her think of the really cool stuff.
The next day, some of them still have a ton of work to do and only two hours to complete it. Josh says that he is going to have to be like Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker. Well, he obviously knows nothing about that play because Annie Sullivan was the person performing the miracles. That said, judging from the outfit he's wearing, he did exhibit some Helen Keller-like characteristics both when he purchased these clothes and when he chose them to wear this morning. Laura Kathleen sees Ivy helping Casanova and believes that, as all-stars, they should only be doing their own work. Anthony Ryan says that they are attached at the hip and the umbilical cord needs to be snipped. Along with mixing metaphors, Anthony Ryan really spends a lot of time adding height to that middle part of his hair. He also always looks and sounds as if he's suffering from hay fever. Mostly though, I don't think it's a big deal that Ivy is helping Casanova. If anything, it's distracting her from her own work, which should make everyone seem less threatened. It's disingenuous though for people to act as though the mere realization that there can only be one winner means that a friend would shut another friend down if they needed help. You wait until the finale or nearby for that shit.
