The Challenge: to create a look inspired by a great work of art. The Result: one auf’d, and four remain! But did the judges make the right choices?

Here’s how it went down (Spoiler Alert!):

Christian, the winner of the night, created a “fierce” conquistador-inspired ensemble (complete with poufy white shirt) that wowed the judges, including guest Roberto Cavalli. Sweet P.’s simple, commercial frock failed at peacockery and cost her the competition, while Jillian’s futuristic take on mythological argonauts was impeccably tailored (and appropriately gold). But it was Rami’s and Chris’s steadfast commitment to their predictable design choices (draping? duplication?) that confused us – and ultimately led to the judges’ surprise decision to keep them both on for one last competition. Rami had said, “I’m not here to make noise, I’m here to make beautiful work,” but please: Turn up the volume! –Shanelle Rein-Olowokere

Tell us: Do you think Rami’s and Chris’s designs were stale? Were you shocked by the judges decision to keep them? Do you think Sweet P. deserved to be cut?
