Interestingly enough, we get a clip of Catie mentioning how she admires Camille’s confidence and how she doesn’t want to make friends. She is strictly there for the competition, and has made that known. Oh wait, Tyra mail! The girls have to put their runway walks to the test and meet a fashion designer the next day.
Fast forward to tomorrow, where the girls are introduced to designer Carmen Mark Valvo. Everyone is excited as Carmen tells them that they will each demonstrate their walks to him in one of his dresses and whichever he likes the most will go to his house that evening for a cocktail party. Each girl is amazed with how nice the gowns are as they begin to get dressed.
The girls are nervous as they stand and await their turns. Carmen goes up to Yoanna and tells her that she has too much makeup on and that only ugly people wear so much makeup. Mercedes is the first to walk, April second, and then Shandi. Carmen notes that Shandi is unsure about herself and needs to get over that. Camille is up and Carmen feels that she has a good presence. After Jenascia goes, Carmen says that she needs to glide more, and he also feels that Yoanna needs to build up more confidence. Catie was good, and Bethany had issues with the dress, but Carmen was pleased with her walk. Then we get a good one-liner from Bethany when she says, “I wish people would start noticing my talent and not my t*ts.”
When everyone has gone, Carmen gathers the girls and gives them some constructive criticism. He tells Camille what was wrong, and she decides to come up with several excuses, telling him that was the way she was taught. She is very aggressive and Carmen notices that as well. Anyway, Carmen chooses Catie as the winner, saying that she walked with composure and grace. He lets her take two people with her, and Catie chooses Mercedes and Camille because they are her roommates and friends.
In the car on the way home, Yoanna decides to go on a tirade to some of the other girls about how sneaky and manipulative Camille is. Catie is hearing all this for the first time and doesn’t understand what is going on. When they get back at the house, there are dresses waiting for Mercedes, Camille, and Catie for the party that evening. Catie wants to keep the letter, but Camille is not done reading it and basically refuses to give it up right away. This is where Catie starts to notice the “real Camille.” To solve all the drama, a house meeting is called to try and settle everything.
If you have the weird plastic hand, you can talk. Catie goes first and tries to figure out what is going on. Camille takes the hand and basically says everyone wants to bitch about her. I guess she is right, because Bethany is next to speak and tells Camille, in front of the other girls, that she can’t take responsibility for anything she does. Mercedes tries to lighten it up a bit and tells Camille that she goes from hot to cold sometimes. Yoanna, of course, has to yell, which makes Camille angry as well. Than, Catie gets her nails on the hand again and lets Camille know that since she won the competition, there better not be any spotlight-stealing on Camille’s part. A promise is made by Camille that she won’t steal the spotlight and she is still going to the party, followed by sticking her tongue out at the other girls.
When the girls get to the party they are introduced to the crowd. Mercedes talks about how good Camille is when it comes to networking the crowd. Catie seems to be having a good time and can’t believe she is there. Carmen gives her a 10 karat diamond ring to wear that he has designed. Of course, it’s just for the night, but that ring is amazing. It looks to me like a good time was had by all.
The next night, Tyra comes over to the loft and hangs out with the girls. Shandi asks Tyra for advice on her walk because she knows it isn’t so great. Bethany wants to know how she can change things, and not always make her chest be the focal point of her shots. Camille, of course, tells Tyra that Yoanna is talking crap about her, and when Tyra talks to Yoanna, she tells her the same thing about Camille. Basically, nothing is settled as we see Tyra leave the loft after Yoanna promises that she really wants to win this thing.
Looks like it’s time for the shoots! Each girl has to bring an outfit and do her own makeup. They are then introduced to Jay Manuel, Tyra’s makeup artist, who will be helping the girls. Jenascia thinks he may be prettier than she is. The girls see several pairs of Steve Madden shoes lined up near the window. They each have to choose a pair and then do their own makeup and hair. Basically, for this shoot, they are in control of their own image. That’s when the madness begins. A mad dash is made for the shoes. Camille hogs three pairs as the other girls pretty much only have one. They start working on their makeup and hair.
Mercedes is the first one to go and she wants to look “tough and cute” in order to match the orange shoes she is wearing. Heather goes second and looks hot! Camille is wearing boots and jumping all over the place trying to get jump shots while some of the girls look on and laugh. Yoanna goes next and wants to look on cue and aware that she can move. Jenascia has this pair of blue boots and looks a little awkward in them, but seems to be having fun. Sara is all over the place for her shot, and Catie looks like a zombie – that’s how pale she is. Xiomara goes for a sleek, biker look and is definitely pulling it off. April is in all pink and looks pretty hot as well. Shandi is in all black with knee length boots and sort of resembles Cat Woman! Jay isn’t fond of her makeup. Bethany pulls off a good pose and looks less busty. The shots are over and the girls head home.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
