Kristy began this week’s show by stating this would be the six remaining designers’ biggest challenge yet – and she was right! Jaws had to be scraped off the floor when none other than international superstar Kelly Rowlands requested our designers to create a hot new stage outfit for her! Kelly wanted something sexy, sparkly, but above all classy. As Henry reminded the contestants their client is an ex-member of the biggest selling female group in history (Destiny’s Child, duh!), it was revealed Helen didn’t even know who she was! Not so for the other contestants – everyone was eager to get inspired by Kelly’s look books, then source their materials with a budget of $300.
Leigh’s initial plans took a nosedive when Lui nabbed the black fringing he wanted as Juli began her ambitious plan to construct a dress made of time-consuming circles – the race was on!
Day two saw Kelly herself visit the workroom. She had nothing but praise for Juli and Brent, a little concern for Petrova’s sparkly cape and Leigh’s choice of colour, while Lui’s fringing and Helen’s short fitted dress didn’t hit the mark for her at all. With one hour left, Lui decided to start all over again!
The models hit the catwalk, and with the help of guest judge Ms Rowlands, the good, the bad, and the ugly were decided. Petrova’s cape worked just how she wanted it too, and Kelly agreed it was fabulous, as was Brent’s fitted hotpants and waistcoat, but Juli’s funky frock saw her win this week’s challenge! Leigh’s outfit was too Moulin Rouge for Kelly, while Lui’s last-minute gold jumpsuit wasn’t working for her either. However it was Helen’s dated and cheap dress that saw her out of the competition this week.
