Challenge: Create a look for an international jetsetter with a twist (or two).

Guest judge: Francisco Costa, Creative Director @ Calvin Klein; Catharine Maladrino.

The drama of last week overflows into this episode’s first minutes. Jeffrey still rankles from the conflict with Angela and her dear little mummy. He contends that Angela was trying to get him kicked off the show by encouraging her mother to say bad things about his outfit for her. In what delusional universe was he competing last week?

This week’s challenge is probably one of the more creative challenges spun from the threads of high fashion on this show in a long time. Create a look for an international jet setting, trendy, hip individual. In the workroom at Parson’s, Tim Gunn reveals the twist: the jet-setting individual is the designer! They are to create and model a look based on themselves. The designers are elated. Angela squeals in delight and does a little happy dance. I, on the other hand, am not so excited. Instead, I am perched in anticipation for who will fail to capture the essence of a globetrotting trendsetter. Perhaps I am not so idealistic as Angela.
