Spoiler alert, obviously.
I'm glad they're using such a fair and straightforward task to make the final cut before the Fashion Week three. They're designing evening gowns, and the style is supposed to represent what they will do if they get the chance to design for Fashion Week. The edit is very Santino-focused. We're shown that no one likes him and that being nice is the key to being a successful fashion designer. I lock onto Santino without meaning to. Now, I find, I just want him to make it. Screw everyone else, who is supposed to be so damned nice. Are they, really? And why does it matter? Stop picking on my Santino! I didn't mean to take this frame of mind. I've just got it.
At about the halfway mark, I'm thinking the key is that Iman is going to be one of the judges and that she's going to wear the winning design somewhere. This is like the first season, where Wendy made it through by making the dress the celebrity chose to wear. So will Iman pick Santino's gold, spangly thing? The other three are too similar and too safe. I can't believe all three of them will get through and only the different one will fail. Iman is going to pick the gold spangles, isn't she?
The judges ask the designers to turn on each other. Chloe picks Santino to be cut, but then all three of the others pick Chloe. In the discussion with the judges, it seems that Chloe and Kara are most at risk, but I predict it will be Kara who will be eliminated, because she played it safe, and she hasn't been winning on other competitions, as Chloe has. So Chloe is the one that deserves to stay.
Santino makes it!
Daniel wins (though Iman tells him it was "borderline boring").
And Kara is out!
It all makes perfect sense.
