They head back to begin working and the shit-talking commences. They start off light by analyzing who is the youngest. I guess it’s Chris, but Andrea cuts the conversation to how awesome it is to be old and good at what you do.
Coolest Grandma ever
We are treated to the first clash of the Fashion Twins when Chris asks Skunks hair if his aesthetic is Miu Miu/Prada. This obvious insult to Skunk’s integrity can only be responded to with dominance and flair.
Attack of Edward SwishyHands
Skunk sulks and interviews that he already doesn’t like Chris for being very similar to his personality. Don’t worry Skunk, I hate everyone like you too. I see them as more alike in look however but since Chris is soft spoken and gentle I guess this is Skunk’s cue to turn up the Bitchy Queen so he can get camera time.
Not all editing is good editing
The gang sews and laughs and they better enjoy the camaraderie while they can. They riff on Fabio for being homeless and Buffi declares herself the class clown. This doesn’t sit well with Dmitry who likes quiet and sedation and dark corners and spiders. Tim Gunn comes in to panic everyone and words can’t describe how much I missed him.
This picture sums it up though
He tells Tara he is intrigued, but doesn’t “get” Sonjia’s jacket with dress combo. His moment is really stolen by Bitter Dmitry though who has decided early on that Buffi hurts his hangover and says her fashion is “all the colors, all the trends.. it’s just like a diarrhea”. LOL! Tim goes the route of advising Buffi her look is “not a bit NOT too much”, instead of stooping to bathroom humor. Diff’rent Strokes. And we have a PR first! Tim is completely stumped by Afro’d Asian! To be fair this is because Afrasian doesn’t actually make clothes (POV shot), so Tim has no idea how to approach a critique.
“I can’t help you unless there are actually clothes involved”
Tim spends some time finding out Skunk’s client is “older southern women” and Elena has fencing-inspired couture. This is Fat Morpheus’ time to shine and while most of the designers ARE intimidated by his abilities to build a tasteful blouse that looks like a fabric flower, Raul is not impressed. Chris reveals he is as in love with Tim as I am and he has an infinitely better shot at him. So now he is the villain.
“Don’t make me be the villain like a motherf@#$er!”
Speaking of, while everyone is rattled by Tim and furiously sewing, Chris pokes Skunk a little and finds out that Kitty Has Claws. They have a terse back and forth where Skunk tells him to “shut the fuck up” and advises Chris to “watch out because I get meaner as I go”. Chris says it’s possible Skunk belongs on Toddlers and Tiaras and not Project Runway.
Back on top Chris, nice save
