The mood at Mood was frantic, as everyone tried to find classic, understated (but not gray) fabric. Anthony Ryan and Becky chose the same very distinct, very pretty (and very gray) material. Feathers were ruffled but there was no time for major drama. Cecilia panicked and also wound buying gray and a sort of creamy, sickly yellow. Anya chose a rather loud mustard print, while Danielle and Laura both went with versions of kelly green. Why don’t they ever listen? Back in the workroom, Nina returned for one more consultation and we were treated to a montage of designers desperately trying to convince her that they were ‘making it work’ as she gazed skeptically at their garments. Although Nina is very gracious, she’s always direct, and the words ‘no’ and ‘plan B’ came up—a lot—throwing everyone into even more of a frenzy. As Tim herded them to hair and makeup he warned, “I’m really alarmed. Honestly, I’m sweating through my suit.” In the Garnier Nutrisse Salon, it was center parts, beachy blowouts, and bronzer for all.
