The designers are surprised when they discover they are designing for the one and only Miley Cyrus! As the competition grows fiercer and the challenges become even more intense, everyone inches closer to their breaking point. Keep reading for our recap of ‘Styled to Rock’ season 1 episode 4!
It’s the fourth challenge of the competition and the season is just getting started. This week the designers are given the task to design a look for non other than fashion rule-breaker Miley Cyrus. Miley tells them she is looking for a look she can go out in, or a “club look.” They are required to use leather, silk, and gold embellishments are part of their outfit. This should be an interesting challenge!
Miley Cyrus On ‘Styled To Rock’:

The designers head to the fabric store and the claws come out as a few of them decide to hog most of the leather choices. Sergio, a surprise new-comer from last week’s episode, gets very little choices for leather and angrily notices Cecilia’s pile of fabric that will probably go unused. They all head back to the workroom, only to get in a mad rush to grab the good dress forms. Once again, Cecilia’s aggressiveness comes out as she almost injures Dexter while grabbing the dress form. Looks like the girl next door has become the bully next door! The drama continues when Cecilia later explains to Dexter that she has experienced more frustration in the competition than any of the other designers and notes Sergio’s attitude towards her — after she held most of the leather while fabric shopping. Sergio, hearing this, goes up to Cecilia and tells her she is being totally inconsiderate of everyone else and she’s not going to win the competition by being rude. Guess we’ll have to leave it up to the judges!
Tish Cyrus Makes A Surprise Visit!
Mel briefly visits the designers to check on their progress. However, he comes bearing news that Miley’s “momager” Tish Cyrus will be at the pull tomorrow! Will she approve of the revealing outfits the designers have come up with?
After several of the designers decided to make their looks a little more conservative, they are met by Tish and Mel to pull the looks Miley will see. Mel asks her what kind of clothes she looks at for her daughter and she tells him that anything is on the table; she knows Miley has a great body and can wear practically anything — and she wants her to make a statement. “Sexy is back on the table,” Laura T. states. Boy is she right, Tish goes around to the designers and encourages them to make the backs lower, the shorts shorter, and the leather tighter. Show-mom alert!
Sergio, Laura P., Ahni and Autumn all make the pull, leaving the remaining designers to seriously question their looks. Adam, Christie, and Dexter especially take it personally and wonder if their taste level isn’t right for the competition.
As the designers prepare for the presentation, judges/mentors Erin and Mel enter the makeup room to check out how the outfits have developed. After taking a look around, they decide to do a second pull! They pick Adam’s outfit which gives him the confidence that he lost after the first pull.
The top five designer’s looks are shown to Miley so she can choose the winner. Not only will it be a look she favors, but she will also show it off at a future event! Her choice comes down to Sergio’s silk blouse and patent-leather skirt, and Laura P.’s sporty bra and leather shorts. The winner is Sergio! This is the second challenge win in a row for Sergio, and he’s only been in the competition for two episodes! He is a must-watch designer this season and we can’t wait to see what he will come up with next.
The bottom five are shown to Mel, Erin, and Tish for elimination. The two designers they choose are Dexter and Christie. Dexter’s studded bra top was so unflattering and Christie’s little black dress was incredibly boring for Miley’s standards. Ultimately, they tell Christie she will no longer be in the competition.
What do you guys think? Did the judges chose the right winner/ loser?
