'Project Runway' Lord & Taylor Challenge Freaks Everybody Out (VIDEO)

The pressure was certainly getting to the designers on this week's episode of "Project Runway." Their task this week was to design a dress that could be featured in a "Project Runway" 10th anniversary "capsule collection" from Lord & Taylor. Their design would not only appear on the store's website, but also in their Fifth Avenue location in New York.

"It is no wonder quite a few designers appear on the verge of a nervous breakdown," wrote Gossip and Gab. This is the kind of opportunity that can make or break a career. To make matters worse, the guest judge for the week was Lord & Taylor president Bonnie Brooks.

Elena struggled to fit her creativity into something that people would actually want to wear. She said she has no interest in making wearable clothes, so this simply isn't her challenge.

But she made it work and even earned top marks, alongside three other designers: Fabio, Melissa and Nina, while Christopher took top marks with a dress the Wall Street Journal wrote could only worn by "a skinny gal." They later added that "anyone with a bust could never pull off" the gown.

Gunnar and Alicia fell to the bottom. Alicia was called safe, but then Heidi Klum pulled a fast one and declared Gunnar safe as well. All the stress paid off as everyone moves on.

See who goes home next on "Project Runway," Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
