Last week on PRA the four remaining contestants were tasked to create a sophisticated high fashion look to be photographed in a warehouse. The four were afraid to use color as a means to make the garments pop, each used some sort of neutral that was in the background. Geez, what were they thinking? Jamie won the challenge. Leah rocked her too exposed model to a 2nd place safe. In a fairly even challenge, beloved Cristina was sent packing. Top three are Tristan, Jamie and Leah. Yes, without looking at their finale collections, that's how I want it to shake down. Well, if you really *must* know, I was hoping for Cristina, Jordan and Jamie, but we know that that ain't gonna happen. Boo.
Listen to your mentor, mi amigo.
At least her hair looks good. No more showing roots as a fashion statement, eh?
It's at this point that I realize that Alex Perry has been a great mentor this episode, minus not pointing out the vagina identifier. He must have that anger fully managed at this point. Now if only we could get him to tuck in his shirt, eliminate the wrongly used glasses, and get clothes that actually fit. Yeah, I know, baby steps. At least he wasn't mean to the designers. Thank you, Mr. P.
Already I'm having visions of poor Jordan and Cristina bumping their heads on the walls.
Alex takes a look at their collections that they made during the last few months, and tells Cristina she needs something more form fitting. He then tells Jordan that he needs something tailored *in his manner* for a guy. (He did mostly menswear, and it all looks really NICE.) The two of them work head to head while the rest go out for dinner. Or, model Savva's old designs.
I feel pretty ... oh so pretty!
Then, the strangest thing happens. Cristina tells us that she is making a seat belt outfit.
I don't know, Cristina, seat belts have been done, and WELL, by Korto. Is that wise?
What you need to take from their work time is that each put forth a good effort, no one slacked or quit. They did not finish at 11:30 p.m. when it was time to go back to the apartments. The next morning something amazing happened.
No, Alex didn't forget to wear his glasses, or to untuck his too small shirt. Dream on!
We feel your pain, Jordan. You do good work, we can see it now.
Yes, I suppose a hug from the muscular mentor would cheer up anyone in a fowl mood.
I'm going to win this, the other designers better watch out!
Oh, if only I could count on that entirely. Bring it, Cristina, I'm rooting for you!
Pardon me while I Google Search to see if Jordan has anything to offer in my size.
