Tyra mail mentions something about being skimpy! Nicole thinks that it will be a runway show in panties. The girls arrive at La Perla, a lingerie store. Amanda says they are the “It” store when it comes to lingerie. They are introduced to Simon Doonan, the creative director of Barneys department stores. He says the challenge is about posing. The girls will get into lingerie and stand in the store window, in front of the whole city. Jenn is nervous right away. They will be divided into groups and pose for ten minutes. Each girl will be judged on creativity, style, and technique. Toccara is really excited, especially when she hears the winner will get $5000 worth of lingerie. Who needs that much lingerie?
The girls get all dressed up, and Eva tells the wardrobe lady that she isn’t sure what her bra size is because she doesn’t wear one. How classy. Toccara says she’s a 33DDD and everyone has a look of shock on their face. Turns out they don’t have Toccara’s bra size (shock!), so she says she’ll just have to deal. Yaya does some practicing in the mirror, trying to remember what Janice said to them. Kelle also admits that she’s been practicing.
The first group is Kelle, Nicole, and Yaya. Yaya says that there are only a few people on the street when they start, but, when they stop, others start to stop as well, which makes them nervous. Kelle isn’t sure what Yaya is doing with all the flexing, while Nicole is doing some weird poses as well. Simon says that Kelle is natural and effortless.
Toccara, Cassie, and Norelle go next, and it looks like Cassie is all over the place. Simon tells them to remember that Janice said class before crass, which was definitely aimed at Cassie and her stripper ways. Amanda, Eva, Ann, and Jenn are the final group. Simon says that Ann has potential, and he loves who she is. He wants more from the group as a whole, and feels that Jennipher is very dull.
After the competition is over, Simon gathers up the girls and gives them some advice. He doesn’t feel that Amanda was built for lingerie. Yaya is too sporty, and Norelle looks too sweet. Kelle is creative and relaxed, while Cassie was too “bada-bing.” Nicole looked like a 50’s pin-up, which was cute, while Toccara didn’t show any of her personality. Ann wasn’t creative, while Eva came off as a show-off. Then, my favorite, he tells Jenn that she looked like she just took a Quaalude. I almost busted out in tears.
He says the winner of the competition is Kelle, who is thrilled more than words can describe. She is thinking that, hopefully, this will reassure the judges about her. She’s told that she can pick two girls. The first girl will get $1500 in lingerie, and the second girl will get $500. Kelle picks Amanda, and Toccara. Cassie tells the camera that it really doesn’t matter that Kelle won, because she still takes bad pictures. Uh-oh, Cassie is getting claws!
Tyra mail tells the girls to be ready for their shoot at 7:45 a.m. Kelle thinks they are going to have to box other girls in the next shoot, and Toccara says she will “knock a bitch out, and still look fabulous.” Jenn is on the phone with her boyfriend and tells him that she has to do more to stick around, and wants to win, but nobody sees it. He tells her that she better show them. What great advice.
The next morning, the girls arrive at the Roxy, and Jay Manual is there to greet them. He says that a lot of hair and makeup has to be done, so they have to start right away. Toccara says he won’t tell them what’s going on or what the shoot is about. All the girls get ready and Norelle loves her makeup.
The girls are brought out to the shoot, and Jay congratulates Kelle on her win at the challenge, even though he can’t believe it. Tyra comes in on skates and tells them that this week they will be modeling purses – on skates! Ann says they read way too much into the mail, and never expected this. Mathew Jordan Smith is their photographer for the shoot, and he has done a lot Tyra’s earlier work. As the girls get ready, he wishes them luck.
The shoot begins, and Norelle is first. He loves her, but thinks she’s scared. Norelle tells the camera the skates messed her up. Yaya goes next and is surprised at her inability to skate, yet Jay loves all her poses. Toccara heads out and is having issues. She falls several times, but says she’s fine. She says that all her falls are graceful. Cassie goes next, and Jay says that she was forgetting that she was selling the bag. In comes Jenn, and both the photographer and Jay feel she has no energy. She says she has the skating down, but it’s all the extra stuff that’s doing her in. Eva comes in and works the camera. Jay loves her shoot and feels she was very fluid.
Nicole tells the camera she feels great, and also takes a spill, but Jay says she walked into the shoot of the century. Kelle comes in and says that, since yesterday, she’s ready to show that she’s been practicing. Jay still doesn’t like it, and needs her to pose better. She says she thinks she might be the one going home this time. Here comes Amanda, who falls more than a few times, but they still love her shots. Jay tells her that, even though she fell the most, her shoot has the most workable frames. Ann is the last to go, and Jay keeps telling her to watch her mouth. He actually gets up and scolds her, which makes Ann do a better job. Jay tells the camera that Ann responds when they yell at her, not when they are nice. With that, the girls head home.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
