It’s Pride Week and while the models are having fun, they didn’t come to play games. Gracing a pop-up runway at Mickey’s Nightclub, the models have to not only style themselves in Christian Cowan designs, but are in charge of their hair and makeup. With an opportunity to walk in Christian’s NWFW 18 show, everyone went to werk to create a look to help them win.
Obviously, the stakes were high for everyone but this challenge meant a lot to Brendi K and Kyla because of their personal ties to Pride and what it represents. For Brendi, who recently came out as bi on the show, she wanted to ensure that she wasn’t doing her own community a disservice by bringing anything less than her A-game. For Kyla, who is an activist, she ended up choosing a denim jacket with a portrait of Caitlyn Jenner as she walked down the runway to take a stand for the LGBT community. But neither of these models ended up winning the challenge and Khrystyana ended up wowing the judges by revealing something fierce in her Hansel and Gretel-inspired walk.
