    what? no comments?

    well that was like alternate-Project Runway.

    Braedon and Jeremy in the bottom and sassy gay guy with chip on his shoulder in the top 3.

    not that i disagree - - -

    all i kept thinking was that if Braedon was sent home Tim Gunn wouldn't have been happy he used his save last week.

    Okay, I agreed with who was sent home. "where's the eggnog" Right on!!!

    I was not really happy about the winner. I mean, geesh, a well made black dress. I didn't like the jacket thingie at all. But then I guess that's why I am not a fashion designer. I guess they saw things about it that I didn't.

    I keep hearing that this is one of the most talented groups of designers in the history of the show, but I'm not feeling it after this episode. And I say this as someone who can never find shoes, so I'm used to buying the shoes first and then building the outfit to go with them.

    On the other hand, can you blame the designers for coming up with boring designs, when the challenges have been so badly done? Isn't this the second "take some accessory and let it inspire your design" challenge they've done this season?

    We had a group of people who pulled black shoes and did black designs. We had another group who pulled colored shoes and then slavishly copied the colors or other design elements from the shoes.

    Then we had Kate -- who pulled an insanely interesting pair of shoes -- and showed them with a boring design that hid the shoes!

    Looking at the photos on the website again, I would give Justin the nod for the best overall look. His design is strong enough to stand by itself with plainer shoes, but because it is all in black, it lets the shoes take the spotlight. But what do I know?

    I didn't like Alexandria's dress at all. Sloppy shoes, sloppy dress. I get the whole soft vs. hard concept, but the execution was horrendo. I had her in the bottom three.

    It made me sick to watch the judges raving about an outfit that looked like brown rags and prosthetic legs. I bet you know which one I mean. Are the judges blind? They keep declaring the worst outfit to be the winner.

    Oooh...Ken was scuuuuuuuurreed.........I guess they kept him because he is good tee-vee....geez-is he bi-polar too?

    Helen's jacket was super-cool-good for her-is this the first time someone with immunity has won the next challenge? :D

    Nice to see Michael Kors back-loved it when he got all giggly with Nina-ahh, fond memories!

    I don't find psycho bullies very enjoyable TV.
    I was very happy when Helen went looking for the producers to shut him down.
    I would not have been as forgiving. Hug it out? I don't think so.

    LOVE Michael Kors.

    The challenge?
    Not so much - too much promo for Heidi's NB line.
    I guess active wear is viable as a design challenge - - - but still pretty boring.

    Heidi was looking really good out on that sports field. So much better without all the "high fashion" makeup and attire. :)

    Tim Gund... not so much in the zebra stripes. :p

    I liked both jackets that were in the top, but was surprised which one won. But I've already confirmed to myself that I know zippo about fashion. :D

    Finally they went to the runway show without announcing for the 100th time that "this is an anonymous show" and "Tim Gund is observing". :up:

    YES, HE IS! :D

    But yes, it is Tim GUNN! And we love him! :up::up:

    I do think the reason Helen won is because Nina went COO COO BANANAS for her look. Nina doesn't do that often. Also, did you hear the judges' comments when they were looking at the clothes after the judging? Something to the effect of how cost-effective it could be to make, etc...like it or not, fashion is about $$ too!

    I have been so disappointed with this season. I keep watching yes, but it still is frustrating when I don't like who wins and don't care who loses.

    I tend to care who loses, because the best is usually on the firing line.

    Care to elaborate for those of us who have lousy bandwidth? What parts of the interview were especially heart-worthy for you?

    Ah, the print challenge.

    I'm beginning to see why it is that I go to the store and see tons of prints that I don't like. Apparently a lot of designers don't work with prints, and people who design prints do so without thinking of how the prints might fall on the body once the garment is made up. :p

    What was he thinking? Alexander. The print was interesting as artwork, but then he made it up into a garment. OMG.

    What was he thinking? Justin. Dude, why on earth would you revisit a design that you got eliminated on before, and why, in the challenge designed to show off your print, do you use so little of it?

    What was she thinking? Oh, yeah, Kate, when I think of computer code, I think of gored skirts with a bunch of floopy ruffly bits sticking out. Not. And you know the design and styling is bad when it makes the model look pudgy.

    What was she thinking? Alexandria manages to turn out revolting looks each week, and skim by, simply because her fellow designers are shooting themselves in the foot so hard.

    How many times do I have to watch the same look go down the runway? Some crappy little jacket that looks like I sewed it, some shapeless white top, and some abomination of a skirt. I'm starting to think "hey, I could do better than that". And you don't want that, really you don't.

    My husband says "send them all home" every week, and after this week's runway show, I just want to send the bottom four home and send Dom, Braden, and Helen to Fashion Week, and be done with this stupid season.

    Really disappointed that Kate shot herself in the foot. Like, with a bazooka.

    And Lifetime is running ads for the next season of Project Runway All-Stars. I wish they'd leave more of a gap in between the two shows. I had cablecard problems and I missed several seasons of PR. I have the DVD sets, but I haven't had time to watch them because I don't want to be watching two different seasons at the same time.

    I suppose the next season of All-Stars should get talked about in a new thread, but if anyone wants to peek, the cast list, judges, and mentor are discussed in this article from The Hollywood Reporter.

    I thought Alexandria's look was so clearly the worst. Looked like a homeless person wrapped rags around their body.

    There was not one single solitary design that I liked even a little bit.
    If it wasn't for Tim I'd have bailed on this season long ago.

    I didn't agree with Kate's elimination over Alexandria and Justin.

    The look was bad but not worse than those 2.

    I had her pegged for top 4. :thumbsdown:

    Can I just say that in almost every episode I laugh the first time Tim is shown? Some of the combinations he comes up with are just hideous. No lie, if you saw a guy wearing a plaid shirt, polka dotted bow tie and a striped wool blazer you'd probably throw a quarter in his cup. Because it's Tim Gunn, it's high fashion.

    The "Emporer has no clothes" has come to life. Lucky Tim is so likable.

    I was thinking all three should have gone.

    I do think Alexandria's was the worst. Couldn't believe when she was "safe" first. That was a mess.

    For Kate, the pattern really had nothing to do with the theme and it was lost much more than even Justin's was.

    I was expecting them to take Justin's and cut the bottom half of it off.
