This week we are going to winnow down the designtestants to Those Will Who Show At The Tents — well, whatever building will be substituted for The Tents — so Alyssa meets the designers on the runway, and introduces them to Kelli Garner, who will be playing Marilyn Monroe in a Lifetime mini-series.
Okay, so the task is to design a dress for Marilyn for the movie? No. Design a dress based on an iconic Monroe look?

The designtestants will have their biggest budget ever--$500.00 — but just one day to complete the task, except … there’s a twist; a twist I have dubbed The Biggest WTF Twist In PR History!
Isaac comes into the workroom with that bitch — no, not Nina, y’all, but Lassie. Yes. Lassie. He announces a twist-y surprise mini-challenge in which the designtestants will create a canine couture plucked from a particular movie genre. Helen gets sci-fi; Michelle gets western; Dmitry gets gangster; Sonjia gets musical ... blah blah blah ... they design, they walk the runway, dogs pee and poop and Michelle wins! And now she’ll design clothes for Lassie.com.
