* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Fans who started watching the series from the beginning saw this episode as Rarity's transition into a well-written character. Those who didn't like Rarity at first saw her as TheLoad of the Mane Six and a RichBitch whose selfishness often got the better of her. This episode proved she was willing to make sacrifices to keep her friends happy no matter the cost. It also allowed fans to sympathize with her after the Mane Six took advantage of her generosity.

* FridgeBrilliance:
** Many have noted that Rainbow Dash's "bad" dress doesn't look anywhere near as bad as the others and is actually pretty cool, if inappropriate for the occasion. This is because despite her insisting to make things cooler, she had the least creative involvement and so Rarity managed to make something that was at least tolerable out of her demands.
** A few fans have analyzed Fluttershy's complaints, and found them to be largely nonsensical, [[http://www.roundstable.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=54983&sid=982c1f6160f9b030734f89c932c82aee#p54983 nicely explaining that while she understands sewing, she doesn't know much about design]].



*** Also, Tabitha St. Germain has joked that she'll probably become one herself some day.

* AlternateAesopInterpretation: One could easily see the lesson of this episode as "[[ExecutiveMeddling Don't interfere in an artist's creative process]]." Fits nicely with the TakeThat on the main recap page.
** Or, "If you don't like a gift at first, give it a bit. It may grow on you."

* GeniusBonus: Rainbow Dash's first costume includes a gold crown of laurel leaves. In AncientGreece, where the myth of the Pegasus came from, laurel wreaths were given to athletic champions.
** {{Foreshadowing}}: She DID win the "Best Young Flyers" competition [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS1E16SonicRainboom two episodes later]]. So by the time she ''does'' wear the dress for its original purpose, she's ''earned'' her laurels.

** Though it's by no means her only one and she has many more smaller moments of drama, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJD9XTaAeSY Rarity's breakdown]] is pretty much legendary.
* NeverLiveItDown: Would you believe this is the ''only'' time the "20% cooler" line appears in the show?
** It was finally referenced again four years later in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsRainbowRocks Rainbow Rocks]]'', though as "20% less cool," and by the human Rainbow Dash.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Rarity's entire "I'M SO PATHETIC!" rant. It's [[PlayedForDrama not really supposed to be funny at first]], given the circumstances of her being overworked from the failure of her first fashion show. Tabitha St. Germain's delivery of her {{Wangst}} [[PlayedForLaughs makes it downright hilarious]].

** The music during the second fashion show is a rapid-fire medley of sound-alike musical motifs; "Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra" for Twilight's dress; Creator/AaronCopland's "Hoedown" for Applejack's; "I Want Candy" for Pinkie Pie's; the WestminsterChimes for Rainbow Dash's; ClaudeDebussy's "L'Apres-Midi d'une Faune" for Fluttershy's.
