For their challenge, the designers have to create an outfit for themselves. During the challenge, Jeffery Sebelia gets in an argument with Angela Keslar over the problems he had with her mom in the last competition. Tim Gunn tells Kayne Gillaspie that his shirt design is looking very Elvis. The judges for the challenge are Francisco Costa, Michael Kors, and Nina Garcia.
After modeling their own outfits for the judges, the designers are asked to explain where they are going in their outfits. Michael Kors tells Angela Keslar that he thinks she picked the worst fabric possible for the pants and compares her to a homeless person. Heidi Klum tells Jeffery Sebelia that his design makes him look like a rock star. Michael Kors tells Vincent Libretti that his outfit looks like the pajamas that they hand you in a first class seat. Nina Garcia says Elvis is alive and well after seeing Kayne Gillaspie’s outfit.
Heidi Klum tells the designers that one of them will be named the winner and one of them will be out, but first they are going on a trip. The designers are given one hour to pack and get to the airport. The designers fly first class to Paris, France in their outfits.
In Paris, the designers are taken to ParsonsParis design room, where they meet guest judge Catherine Malandrino. The designers do a runway walk for Catherine, and her scores are added to the runway totals from New York. The winner of the challenge is Jeffery Sebelia for his rock star design. Catherine says “Kayne, I’m sorry, you look ridiculous, you look like a sick pop star.” Catherine says “And you Angela, you are just coming from another world, and you are not a jetsetter. Angela, you are out.”
