Kate continues her anti-metallic speech, arguing that it's a fall-winter trend, not a spring one. She also says that she doesn't personally like metallics, which has absolutely nothing to do with constructing a trend page. I think those lace-up menswear boots are hideous, for example, but if I'm putting together a trend page on them, I'm not going to haphazardly throw in gladiator sandals for "contrast." Nonetheless, when Ashlie and Cologne decide against using any of Kate's "contrast" items, she just sits at the computer randomly yelling out, "Hate it!" With two minutes to go, she is literally reduced to gibberish.
Elsewhere, Johanna's team appropriately incorporates the idea of contrast to title their spread "Pretty 'N' Punk" since Kathleen was wearing a delicate, form-fitting dress, while her daughter wore a tunic-y, grommeted black frock. Johanna runs around like a headless chicken so much that Megan nearly shoves a Xanax down her throat. Johanna TH's that she should be the one to go if her team loses. Dyshaun backs Megan up saying that Johanna needs to lighten up because it's just fashion and "no one's going to die over a tragic pair of shoes." Then again, Mr. Blackwell's autopsy results aren't in yet.
Back over on Team 2, Kate continues to be an asshole. Time's up!
The next morning, we rejoin part 11 of an 85-part series on why Kate hates metallics. She complains that her voice went unheard, but Cologne argues that it's not about personal taste but about what makes the page cohesive. Thank you, Eternity! They tell Kate to speak her mind at panel, and she manages to turn even winning into losing, saying that if she speaks her mind and they win, she'll look stupid. If the mark of a good lawyer is seeing things from all sides, then I suppose Kate's aces at that. As for fashion, though, she sucks at that. And life, too.
Eternity Cologne promises to let Kate defend herself at panel, but she will not let her misrepresent the truth. And speaking of presenting things, Ashlie gets more awesome by the minute as she gives a for example. She says that, if they were saying that pompoms were a trend, then she would rah-rah all over the place for them. And she would back up the teammate who chose the trend even if it wasn't her choice. Because that's what teammates do. She charges Kate to "act like you wear metallic all day long every day, and we'll be cool." She concludes that Kate's jig is up. Ashlie, you're my hero. Kate has no response. Unless you call "mopey face" a response. Commercials.
