The designers are greeted by armed guards and make various stupid remarks about the police, the military, and being afraid of guns. I’m sure the former soldier bit her tongue so hard it bled.
The big reveal is that the models are wearing gazillions of dollars of precious gems and the models must design a dress as a showcase for the jewelry.
While on the surface this sounds like an awesome challenge (ooo, sparkles…who doesn’t love sparkles? besides Timothy, of course), I sense a flaw. The perfect showcase for show-stopping jewelery is a simple, dark, cocktail dress or gown that will not compete with the main attraction. You could ask the designers to create something “inspired by” the jewelry but that would call for some less conventional jewelry. I guess, in a way, this is the challenge part of the challenge–design something interesting that compliments the jewelry.
