Episode Summary

Julian expressed feeling lonely because Gwen and Alaiza had been eliminated, while Jessica was happy. All girls arrived at the Bugis+ shopping mall, where they met Thai fashion sensation Madeaw (Apichet Atilattana) for their challenge. The girls were asked to hold a pose as mannequins for 30 minutes while they were styled by Madeaw, and Sang-in was chosen as the winner of the challenge. As her prize, she was granted the ability to decide who her partners would be for the upcoming photo shoot.

Later the models were taken to Universal Studios Singapore as part of a group photo shoot for Maybelline in which they had to pose together as New York 'it girls'. On set, Yu Tsai was joined by fashion designer Patricia Field, Maybelline makeup director Nigel Stanislaus, and photographer Jesper McIlroy. Sang-in chose Aldilla and Julian as her teammates for the shoot. The second group was composed of Jessica, May and Patricia, while the third consisted of Angie, Tawan and Tuti. May and Sang-in excelled in their sessions, while Aldilla, Angie, Jessica, and Julian struggled the most.

At panel, May, Patricia, and Sang-in were highly praised, especially by Field for perfectly embodying the modern 'it-girls'. Tuti and Tawan received mixed reactions while Aldilla, Julian, Jessica, and Angie were criticized for not fulfilling the brief and giving blank expressions. During elimination, May received the highest total score and was given an all-expense trip and two tickets to New York Fashion Week 2016. Jessica and Julian landed in the bottom two, but it was Jessica who received the lowest score and was eliminated from the competition.
