She shows up looking like a disaster, and when Cheryl realizes she's completely helpless without Victor, she shouts out "Ladies!" and all the other girls descend and, despite all being stressed and in a rush, immediately start helping her with her hair and makeup. Doubly so when you remember these girls are her competition, and it would only help them to leave her cut adrift, but they still refused to leave her behind.
