But! I TiVo'd the epi, watched it again, and you know what? If I were set to be at Fashion Week as a designer for The First Time, and was told mere hours beforehand that my shoes were in violation of the contract I signed, I'd flip out. Majorly flip the F out. As in, I've not only designed the current shoes, but they're a big part of my collection, and with hours to go, I have to dig through a box of shoes that I don't have time to test with the models before the show.
Seriously, if Kara Saun knew that she was in violation of the contract/agreement, would she have been as open about having her friend not only get the shoes made, but then actually SHOW UP with them for all to see?
Would she have told Tim how, where, and how much ('gra-TIS'!) they came to be in her possession? Again, for someone who was dealt a potentially HUGE blow (as it was, some of the dresses were too long even WITH heels) she handled it well, all things considered - including Wendy's smirk laced opinion. (She took that opportunity to milk that for all it was worth) I wonder if the show's editor left out any comments Kara Saun may have had when the MK shoes arrived, (as in - "Hmm..those are nice, but my shoes are on their way") any questions Jay & Wendy may have had when she wasn't among them fishing through the box...
After watching the show, seeing her designs, and then hearing her comment about feeling 'penalized' for designing (the shoes), I just can't wrap my head around her knowingly 'cheating'.
She flipped out (as muted as that was) by 'not letting it go' because it's not like she had a month to replace them - the runway show was hours away. Glad she was able to get the option of not having them 'considered'.
