The ladies hone in on St. Pancake’s gown as something too dressy for the everyday woman, which just fuels Pancake’s self-image as a modern-day Scarlett O’hara running around Tara in her ballgown. Well, Scarlett before that pesky war broke out and ruined her finances. She interviews that she is not aspiring to clothe “the farmers of America”, but wants to be fashion forward. I can understand not being interested in farmers since they serve no purpose other than supplying food and raw materials for textiles. What carbon-based fashion designer needs those things? Oh, all of them.
DeadMauth shows off his adorable little muse, who happens to be named Sophie, and calls his look, “Sophie’s Choice”. Joanna earns her value for the entire season by steering him away from a reference to a mother who was forced to send her own little blonde pirouhetting daughter into a gas chamber to be murdered.
“Oh, so how do you feel about ‘Jonbenet Surprise’?”
Everyone is sailing through their critiques. Papa Elsa threw a hat on his outfit to give it a masculine edge and Andre is is making something weird but possibly genius. Ivy takes her moment to say she chose a picture of a dead butterfly as a metaphor for how a person goes through tranformations and even a bitchy much-loathed caterpillar can turn into something beautiful with a solid Twitter fanbase. Joanna says she sees the change in Ivy, but her body language says otherwise.
“Yes, please fold your bitchwings and die”
Aryan gives his picture the headline “moving forward” as a plot device to explain that he had cancer and immersing himself in school and design was what kept him positive and motivated to heal. Since we no longer have a testicular cancer hero to believe in, I would advise Aryan to write a book about his struggles that we can all be inspired by.
“It’s Not About the Mowhawk”
The models come in for fittings and everyone is frantic. As these garments come together they are looking less and less well designed. Althea is being shit on for fit issues and Kane’s bad taste is about to be once again literally on display. Joshua is basically just building a packet of LifeSavers at this point.
Time travel – it’s runway day and nothing has changed. All the designers are going batshit crazy trying to finish and the poor models are just standing around hoping to not be glued into a monstrosity. St P takes time to throw shad at Althea for being in the middle, but mainly just because she is insecure and wants to hear the judges’ opinions of what I assume Pancake sees as competition. Poor Andre seems to be making things up as he goes and Joshua is still marking and cutting fabric. Oh, and Ivy RUNS through the workroom WITH NEEDLES IN HER MOUTH.
I don’t need this. I make MrWallace prescreen Boardwalk just so I don’t have to see this kind of thing
