    IMHO, she looked better in her before picture! Keep the haircut and makeup and have her stand up straight and it would look better than what Ven did for her.

    Disgraceful. Utterly disgraceful.

    This one is weird. I don't love any of them. I hated Ven's top-just another stupid low cut top for a plus sized woman. Whoop. But other than that, I didn't HATE any of them, either.

    I do like Fabio as a character so far, so I'm happy he won. And that Gunnar did well, since he was so awesome with his client.

    That's the one! Thanks!

    See what I mean? Why couldn't Ven have done some kind of foldy-magic like this? Maybe the judges would have said it had already been done, but the client would have had something wearable.

    Yeah, I don't think it's that awesome. I would have rather walked down the runway barefoot and then told the judging panel that the designer refused to style his look. Then they could have thrown the SOB off the show.

    And if she's a size 10, I want to know whose vanity size that is.

    There's a truth there. But I'm guessing the friend was trying to keep her from being even more shamed.

    Boy. How about that guy? He's not exactly fit himself. He has a lot of nerve being so condescending. I definitely like him a lot LESS after last night's show.

    Side note: Anyone else noticing how "mean" the judges are being this Season? They seem positively grumpy. :D

    Thoughts as I'm watching live.

    I really enjoy Gunnar.

    Why is Heidi wearing a disco ball to the runway show?

    I just love Tim Gunn so much.

    Did not like Elena's dress at all...I don't know; something about the construction was off, it made the look like it was made from a tarp.

    Dmitry dress was stunning, did the judges want more skin showing? That'd be the only thing to change if one wanted.

    Hey, guys, please use the post title as a marker when you start comments on a new episode -- thanks!

    Interesting that the judges decided to change things up by doing a top 4 / bottom 2 split. Gunnar should be thanking Kooan for walking off the show -- although I suppose the producers could decide at any point to eliminate anyone, and do a double elimination at some other time.

    Assuming that I had the body, I would buy Melissa's dress. I love the fabric, and I love that the dress is both covered up and strapless.

    I like the lines of the gown, but I don't think Christopher's shredding technique works to advantage in this fabric. You can see the threads sticking up.

    Sonjia's dress -- hasn't there already been a Vogue pattern for this dress? :p I don't think it's fair to slam Gunnar for his dress and not give the same criticism to Sonjia.

    Ven's dress -- predictable much? I mean, if I were better with Photoshop, I could have put up a photo of his dress before the episode aired. :p

    And how catty was that, that Ven thought all the girls would be in the bottom? Wishful thinking?

    I didn't like the exposed zipper, and the back was crooked, but when the execution was right, Fabio's dress seems like it would be wearable.

    In my opinion, Alicia (not Gunnar) was the one that was lucky that they didn't send anyone home. I don't think that Gunnar's dress was the worst of the bunch, even though his comments at the end of the show seemed to indicate that he thought he was in last place. Did they actually say that his was the worst of the group? I think they just played it that way to build drama.

    Totally. I mean, how many versions of this dress has he made? He even mentioned that he was going to do something that he was comfortable with (or something like that).
    I still can't believe that he wasn't kicked off last week...

    I completely agree.

    From the moment I heard who the bottom two were I was thinking Alicia was a goner.

    The moment they said Alicia was safe, I knew Gunnar wasn't going either. Based on what Heidi said about his dress there is no way he was going home over it.

    Surprised how much they downplayed Fat Ven's obnoxiousness last week - and by downplay I mean they didn't even refer to it.

    I live 2 blocks from Lord & Taylor so I passed by on my way home to see the dresses.

    The original 9 are in the windows but the winning design from last night is not.

    They look good except Chris March's which looks like a cheap 14th street knock off.

    Wow, this was impressive!

    IMHO if you want your look to be in the top group, the best thing you can hear coming out of a judge's mouth is the phrase "it looks expensive". So how is it that the team with the biggest "budget" shot themselves in the foot by making a bunch of cheap-looking crap?

    Big props to Christopher and Sonjia for letting Gunnar shine with his two dresses, and giving him credit on the runway. Ideally with a team challenge, the team should be stronger than the sum of the three designers, and I think they showed that here.

    OMG, the store dog at Mood is named "Swatch"? I missed that on the first watching.

    And so many good zingers in this episode.

    "They're like Boris and Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle."

    "Something should have been in that crotch that a girl doesn't have."

    Loved this episode just because of the Gunnar, Christopher and Sonjia team. Beautiful pieces that together all made a great set. Wonderful work. I wish all three of them could have won.

    I have always thought that Christopher and Gunnar should get a room-now they are getting along! HEY! ;)

    Now it looks like fireworks between Eleyna and Dimitri-for real!

    I think it was Alicia's time to go. Don't send my sweet skirt-wearing Fabio home! I love him!

    This is funny, only because you are uber-observant and have great recall in the dance threads, and Swatch has been making Project Runway appearances for at least three seasons now :p
    Just made me chuckle :D

    I was stuck with nothing but OTA for several years. This is the first time I've watched Project Runway since season 5.

    So this is the first time I've seen Swatch.

    That's okay, though, I'll laugh with you.

    After seeing this episode, I have this impulse to go through my closet and throw out every piece of black and grey clothing in there. (And I have a lot.)

    Isn't he the cutest? This is the first time we've heard Tim say "Thank you, Swatch!" this season, IIRC. :D
