Yikes! Episode eight starts off like a dream with Diane von Furstenberg walking down an endless flight of glossy white stairs with sparkly music in the background. But the designers are collectively freaking out because their challenge is to design something (no clue as to what, but it's no wrap-dress challenge) for DVF, who is the week's guest judge. Kenley is immediately crying under the pressure, and everyone's talking about how "big" this is and no one seems to feel like there's enough time! The judges come back with comments such as as "It's messy," "the crotch is every woman's nightmare," and DVF comparing a garment to a Dracula cape. Eesh. Not good for the designer, but good for our viewing.
