Last week the designers created their own textiles with spraypaint and were challeneged to create “wearable art”. NotHeidi wore something gawdawful (Thanks to the commenter that identified the Stella McCartney!), and quite a few designers put out dresses that were more commercially appealing than they were artistic, which was kind of impressive given the stiff, spray-painted material they used.
Pleather was sent home for constantly speaking in third person and Dead Mauth the Mumbler won for his flame-emblazoned seperates. Like a high fashion Guy Fieri. The big news is that the focus of my ire was surprisingly shifted from Pleather to Saint Pancake in just the nick of time. Game on!
We open with NotHeidi joining the group on the runway. Apparently Heidi got wind of Carolyn Murphy having a way better wardrobe than her and also meeting the designers in nonpointless ways so she made a few executive producer changes.
“I’m not sure which of Klum’s 4,000 kids made this dress. I’m assuming the blind one”
NotHeidi says something about fans and then it’s off to where the real challenge is – the workroom! Joanna introduces the group to some lady who is a marketing bigwig at USA Today, which Joanna calls, “a leading news organization”. Bwahahaha! Also known as the newspaper they always give you for free at hotels and you pick it up and are like “who left this parakeet toilet in front of my door?”. But then you take it to the beach anyway just in case and end up carrying it around all day without looking at it. So in a way, it’s a much more effective weight loss aid than anything.
The lady explains USA Today as a giant picture book since no actual writer or journalist will work for USA Today and no one who can actually read would subscribe to it. She says they pioneered “visual storytelling”. I honestly had no idea USA had such a long history!
The challenge is tortuously twisted out of all this nonsense to be about fans tweeting pictures the designers have to use for inspiration. Glad USA Today dropped by, not like they were doing anything else. Oh, the winner gets a photo and an editorial piece (140 words or less!) in the paper.
The designers then log onto a pair of PCs to choose what photo they like. It’s a pretty easy challenge since the photos range from nature shots to train stations to pretty much anything. Everyone is chummy and giggling and the designers get to choose who goes next. Which means someone’s going to be last.
