Carla's on vacation, so I'm filling in for her tonight. In case you missed last week's show, here's a quick recap: The designers paired off to create a look for Brooke Shield's character on ABC's "Lipstick Jungle." Keith won the challenge, and Kelli was out.
The show starts with the designers' reactions to last week's judging. Korto is surprised that Kelli is out (Michael Kors called her outfit "slutty, slutty, slutty" – was there even a doubt that she was leaving?) and Blayne and Joe comment on Keith's aesthetic, or lack thereof.
Heidi Klum brings out a guest to introduce this week's challenge. As promised, it is Season 4's Chris March, dressed like an operatic valkyrie, with disco balls covering his chest and a ridiculously large viking hat. Chris explains that the designers will have to create an outfit for a drag queen and brings out 11 lovely ladies so that the designers can choose their models. His one piece of advice? "Be as theatrical and over-the-top with your designs as you want to be."
Keith won last week's challenge, so he gets to pick his model first, and he chooses Sherry Vine because she has great legs. Blayne picks Miss Understood, no doubt because she has bright pink hair and is wearing Kermit the Frog in sequins.
After everyone else picks their gals, they head to the workroom. Tim Gunn warns the designers that they must reflect the unique personalities of each queen with the looks that they create. He, too, tells the designers to go "theatrical and over-the-top." He also tells them that their designs will be auctioned off to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
