Tim and Anne Fulenwider present this week's challenge in front of enlarged versions of past Marie Claire magazine covers.


With this year marking the twentieth anniversary of Marie Claire magazine, the designers were asked to use inspiration from 20 years in the past to create looks that could appear in the pages of Marie Claire 20 years into the future. This was the first challenge the designers were given the chance to shop at Mood, and they were each given $200 to spend.

This week's guest judges were Anne Fulenwider, the editor-in-chief of Marie Claire magazine, and Amanda de Cadenet, fashion photographer and Lifetime TV host of Undone With. While the judges had a hard time agreeing on which designs deserved to have the highest and lowest scores, they apparently all believed that Amanda was lucky to have won immunity for this challenge since her look was definitely not their favorite. Nonetheless, the highest scores were awarded to Sandhya and Kristine. Heidi, in particular, loved that Kristine's look was functional, chic, and included a nice mix of fabrics. Sandhya, however, took a real risk with her refreshing, bold, and memorable dress. It was a tough call, but Sandhya was deemed the winner. Angela, once again, completely missed the mark and was asked to leave.

On to the designs...

Sorry -- I'm old school & don't like clunky looking shoes with dresses. Also not impressed with the basic gray/black pallet. Too many looks seem to be variations of seasons past. They all need to "think out side the box".

Also, if you'd like to see what Angela's portfolio looked like, it's available here:

That said, Emily's jacket and layers were well executed. Glad for her sake that Angela was sent home. Her temperament would not have survived the late season PR snarkiness.

marycr8on marycr8on writes: I thought Emily's was the best outfit and should have won. Sandya's was just weird. I did like that she didn't go with the black/gray scale colors most of the rest of the designers did, but who would wear that? The pocket placement is questionable too. If I have pockets, I want them to be easy to access, these are too low.

I am impressed with the designers this season. One request - could we see the back views of the garments? Kristine's dress was really cool with an interesting construction and different colorway that we can't see in the front view.
I agree that Angela didn't belong there from the beginning. I wonder what her portfolio looked like?

I had thought of a dress with metal/solar elements so that you could recharge all of your electronics with your clothing. Sandhya surely hit the mark. She is a great innovator who has learned to shut out all the negativity she's getting on the show. She definitely deserved the win. Hernan's dress?, on the other hand , looked like it had had been washed on the wrong setting! Poor fitting and looked like it was simply shredded at a distance. Angela, poor girl, should have been off the first night. I'm surprised that she survived to show 3.
