* ImpracticallyFancyOutfit: When Heather, Katie and Sadie get makeovers to show solidarity for the stricken Lindsay, who needs an emergency makeover after a challenge accident, vain fashionista Heather goes much fancier than her allies, channeling Creator/AudreyHepburn's iconic ''Film/BreakfastAtTiffanys'' look[[labelnote:details]]black dress, matching UsefulNotes/{{opera gloves}}, tiara, etc.)[[/labelnote]] in hope of upstaging them. Because Heather's new look is impractical for camp life, she goes back to her usual outfit the next day. Lindsay, Katie and Sadie, having chosen more practical makeovers, stick with their new looks for the rest of the summer.



* OperaGloves: Heather's makeover ensemble includes a pair of opera gloves as she channels Audrey Hepburn. Heather goes back to her normal look the next day because her makeover look was impractical for camp life and was chosen mainly in an attempt to upstage the unveiling of Lindsay's makeover.
