Heidi has a new feminine fragrance called Surprise with notes of pink pepper, mandarin and jasmine. She needs something to wear for the ad campaign and that’s where the designers come in! The winning looks from this challenge will be worn in the television commercial and to the press event for the fragrance launch. This challenge is important for the contestants because the winning look will be on television and on the red carpet! Each team will make options for Heidi’s television commercial and PR event. Two winning looks will be chosen after the runway show. Oh, and the designers will have just one day for this challenge!
Each designer is given a box with Heidi’s inspiration inside including her fragrance, story board and a book full of photos from the campaign’s photographer. The colors of the perfume packaging are pink, black and gold and the looks should match that color scheme. The guest judge this week is the always lovely Kristin Davis, who played Charlotte on Sex and the City.
Team Keeping It Real is the winning team yet again for the third week in a row! Matt, Cindy and Benjamin have the lowest scores, while Patricia, Kate, Layana and Daniel all had the highest scores. Patricia was applauded for her dress with intricate, handmade leather squares. Layana and Kate were also praised for their flowing, black corset dress and had an emotional, teary moment on the runway. Finally, Daniel was congratulated for his white Bond girl dress.
Kate is declared a winner of the challenge! Heidi will wear her dress in her fragrance campaign. Daniel is also a winner and Heidi will wear his design at the launch of Surprise. Layana, Kate, and Daniel, all overwhelmed with emotion, were crying after hearing their praise. Aww.
Now for the tense part of the show, it was time to send a designer home. Matt is declared in, leaving Benjamin and Cindy in the bottom two. Sadly, Cindy is sent packing. It seems as if the judges considered Benjamin’s past strong designs to help him squeak by.
