Holy '80s fashion: Sequins, giant flat purses, a silver spandex jumpsuit with gossamer wings, a black satin skirt cut up to here, and acres of metallic lamé!

There's also a new opening sequence to the show with more scenes of Jessica snooping around in mysterious places. I like it.

Also, so many gloriously terrible fake French accents.

And I was kind of on the loan shark's side at first. $10,000 is a lot of someone else's money to spend, especially before you've made any of your own. Maybe prove that your line can be successful before you bet it all on one supermodel?

I wish I had a screenshot of the strapless dress with the black velvet bodice and full gold lamé skirt. It's amazing. I would have coveted that in 1987 (and 88 and 89... and actually kind of even now)!

Eva should have asked Jessica for the 10K instead of dealing with the loan shark.
