Under the Gunn recap: Season finale!

The challenge on last week's episode of Under the Gunn was to create a look inspired by a Marvel comic-book hero; the competition would determine which designers would move on to the finale. After a spirited debate, the judges had no problem deciding that Oscar and Shan deserved to go all the way. But they struggled over who to send home, so ultimately sent both Sam and Asha to the final. Asha and Sam each had one win under their belts; Shan and Oscar both had three wins at that point.

On last week's Under the Gunn, the five remaining designers were paired with a "real women" with real fashion issues, and asked to create a design to meet their needs. Lots of drama ensued -- between the designers and their clients, between the designers and their mentors -- and in the end, Shan won both the challenge and $5,000, as well as well as an additional $1,000 from Benefit cosmetics for his quick-fix solution.
