Tara Reid has sobered up long enough to realize she needs to step it up and infuse color and create more “hero” pieces if her collection is going to be noticed. Tim interrupts the musings to let them know they get more time at Mood and additional budget. This isn’t necessarily a “make a new look” challenge, but it’s kind of a push in that direction since the collections are looking a little anemic. The mood at Mood is a dull sense of panic since everyone is pretty stretched thin creatively at this point. I think the talent is there so I will blame the time constraints.
This sign makes me hungry. I would love a swatch of Mongolian lamb. Rare, please
Back in the room we get to hear everyone’s thoughts about the others. Unibrow loves Tara but feels her collection is missing something. Chris loves Dmitry but feels he is missing something. Dmitry thinks Chris is missing everything and has “lost it”. I would contend he may never have had it. Tara must be the nicest or have a big fan in the editors because she never seems to pop up in the backstabbing commentary.
Or maybe she keeps mistaking the video confessional room for a VIP section and doing blow instead of interviews
Style consultation time! Unibrow has ditched the weird mushroom UFO wigs the judges hated and is going for simple braids pinned up. Tara seems to have a cool Jetson swirl going on instead of her matching black rats’ nests wigs. The styling decision for Dmitry’s models is to glue tinfoil to their hair in an effort to look younger. I guess it represents when they were first taken out of the supermodel packaging and some of the foil stuck? The only thing younger would be to leave them encased in plastic like they are on the shelf but that would make it hard to walk. Chris is as lost in styling as everywhere else and goes through a dozen hairstyles before the stylist basically tells him they will figure it out and not to worry.
“That Russian guy isn’t worried and look what we talked him into”
Unibrow is working hard to make his collection look more expensive which probably just means heading to dumpsters in nicer neighborhoods. Tara is busy focusing on a few new pieces to bring in more color and “hero” factor. She starts fitting a column dress that takes the notion of column wayyyy too literally. The color she chose – white. The hero – Houdini. If I ever wondered what you pair a straightjacket with, now I know. And I know you must walk in microsteps to wear it.
Unibrow helps demonstrate with his fingers since there is no math for him to do today
