This week's challenge asked the designers to create garments for their models to wear to an industry party. With designers like Ed Hardy's Christian Audigier looking for new models at the event, it was important for the models to be wearing great fashion in order to get noticed.

For the most part, the designs this week were safe and boring. There were few surprises and not very much drama considering the models were the clients. Althea mixed things up a little with her three-piece outfit including short skirt and smoking jacket, which secured her the win this week. Although Logan's 50's prom dress covered in lace was a close second for worst garment of the week, Qristyl was the designer declared "out" by Heidi and sent home. The (new) judges declared that Qristyl's simple black dress aged her model, which is the worst sin a designer could commit against a model.

What did you think? Check out the garments and then let us know in the poll below who you would have picked to win and who should be "out".

Logan's '50s inspired prom dress left him in the bottom two.




Qristyl couldn't save herself with this boring black dress which aged her model "10-15 years" according to Heidi.




Althea was the winner this week by choosing to create a three-piece suit rather than a simple dress.
