it’s, it’s good. And it, and it’s a wonderful challenge and we have a real client before us.

So then I meet with the designers in the workroom and I have Tara with me. We talk again about how big this is and how important it is, and Tara talks about what she’s looking for in a gown. What’s really interesting is that she uses the term “red carpet” as opposed to “pageant.” She says I really don’t want something that’s “pageanty,” “I want something that would look great on a red carpet.” And there really is a difference. And you can see in Kayne in particular you can see that resonating in him, because he knows that difference. And he is nothing if not a superb, sublime, pageant gown designer and he knows the difference between that and red carpet.

Laura clearly is very comfortable with eveningwear. Um, we have Keith our winner, who has only made one dress but won a challenge with it. I know, he was little daunted by this. At the same time, he’s a little arrogant so he’s not going to show too much of that. Vincent is confident. Um, Angela is fearful. Katherine has never done anything quite this ambitious. And in various parts of the room there are various reactions to this.
