Episode Summary

EDIT
The remaining girls go and get a makeover. Cassandra can't stop complaining about her new short hair, not knowing Tyra intends for it to be even shorter!

At the photo shoot, the girls pair up and go head to head, seeing who can bring out their personal while wearing the exact same outfit as their partner.

Cassandra can't seem to let go of her pageant posture and the shoot doesn't go smoothly for her. Jay Manuel says she needs a miracle to stay in the competition.moreless

  • Well they did not write it because it is a reality show. Too sad for Cassandra she got cut at least her hair at the moment.

    Well they did not write it because it is a reality show. Too sad for Cassandra she got cut at least her hair at the moment. Well Ebony had so many things to say and the rest didn't really say much about something in the interview I wanna see more aside from Cassandra and Ebony.
  • Eh. I liked it, I guess.

    Three reasons why I like this episode



    1) The makeovers were ok, especially Coryn, Kyle and Cassandra (although I hate her guts). I wanted them to do something better with Kim and Nicole though.



    2) The photoshoot. It actually looked like something that Vogue US would print.



    3) James St. James. And I thought my fashion sense was horrible. Thanks for making me feel better about myself.
  • Model-wannabes get makeovers and glamerous photos are taken.

    This episode began with...well, nothing special. The girls received dramatic make-overs (with the exceptoion of few) and some cried (well, one). Cassandra\'s hair went for beauty-pageant long to tom-boy short, which gave her a new edge. They also each received a type of style that they had to adapt to (ex. mode, 90\'s models, etc.). Afterwards, they ran all over rodeo drive for an outfit that best suited their given style. Lisa suceeded and won her outfit plus other pieces from the other girl\'s outfit. After the competetion photoshoot, the 18 year old was kicked off because to her, it is just a dream.moreless

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Kim: (mocking Lisa) I'm gonna win, if that's ok by you!

    • Lisa: I want this competition to be as fierce as possible. And I want to know that I won with these girls trying their best, looking their best even with my help...and I still won that! That's how I want it to go down!

    • James St. James: Personal style means that you can be fat, 40 and bald and dress like a clown and still be the most faulous person in the room!

    • Ebony (on having braids put in): I just got in the chair and I knew I was going to be sitting, and it took 13 hours. At the end of the day it just looked so awesome, so I didn't really care that I couldn't feel my legs or my butt.

    • Cassandra: If this doesn't work for me then I'm definitely gonna go back to pageants because I think that really helps you develop more as a woman where modeling is just more of a career.

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Tyra: I specifically said Mia Farrow in Rosemary's Baby. Rosemary's Baby is a 1968 feature film adapted from a novel by Ira Levin. Mia Farrow's formerly waist-length hair was transformed into an inch-long pixie cut that started a huge trend.
