I really liked both Demetri's and Christopher's dresses but liked Demetri's just a little more.

I thought Christopher's was too pale - it was gorgeous, but I wondered if it could be done in a different color - maybe a metallic black, or something and it would show up better from the back row.

"I Get a Kick Out of Fashion" OAD 9/20/12

Now that I know more about how the show is filmed, I wonder if sleep deprivation or exhaustion accounts for some of the brain shutdown that happens to the designers.

They said that the design would have to read all the way to the nosebleed seats. They showed them the whole line, so the designers could see the impact of the same dress on a whole line of girls.

If I had been in Tim Gunn's shoes, I would have nudged Chris to make the 'sky' part of the dress a night sky (midnight blue) instead of nude, so the skyline would be more visible in the balcony seats. If he had done that instead of the nude top, it would have been my top pick, hands down.

Dmitry's dress was strong except for the transparency over the boobs. Those two were the strongest designs for me.

And with Ven we see, once again, that you ignore Tim Gunn's advice at your peril.

"Origami Rose" could be his drag queen name. Michael Kors FTW!

No, they didn't and I would have loved to have seen that. I agree that the sky line would have shown better with a darker color, but I loved the winning dress. So much.

Almost as much as I was thrilled to see Ven get auf'ed.

(but to be honest, I didn't think his dress was as bad as the other one in the bottom 2. That blue with all those sparkles sounded like it "crunched" when she moved, and it was just plain ugly !!).

I really liked Demitri's dress too. Lots of nice details there. I kind of thought Elena was going to go, but I think they wanted to make a statement to Ven. So out the door he goes. He sure didn't turn out to be as good as I thought he would be based on his initial designs. Seems he isn't very versatile.

i think i actually preferred Dimitri's dress over Christopher's.

my problem with Christopher's was the skirt didn't seem to fall very well and the slit was kindof high for The Rockettes I would think.

I was absolutely SHOCKED to see Ven go, but I was happy!

He was just too smug for his own good. See ya, buddy!

I think the final 3 will be Christopher, (funniest quote of the night, besides Michael Kors' "Origami Rose" was Christopher's "I need my inhaler" LOL), Dimitri and Melissa. I love Sonjia and she is talented but I just have a feeling.

I liked that Elena apologized to Dimitri. Now they can get it on! LOL!

Yeah. I wish he'd done a more flowy skirt. Dimitri's was nice. I don't like him for some reason, though.

Ven's certainly wasn't the worst of the bottom three, but they had a point to make and I'm glad they made it.

I think Dimitri was robbed (once again).

Fabio should have kids. He's awesome. I like him more every week.

GOD yes. I was telling someone before the episode even aired how much her "Truly Scrumptuous" name made me want to kick her in the teeth.

I love him. I really want him to at least make it through the next round, but I worry about him.

I wanted him to win this challenge so badly because he was the only one who DID seem to understand the kid, and how to make a really smart functional outfit that isn't going to be a huge PITA to work with with diapers and such.

I guess it's time for me to take the Ms. Cranky-pants hat and say "yeah, back at you!"

I simply want to make the All-Season threads easier to navigate for people who are behind.

Putting the episode title in the post title area leaves a nice big visible marker that shows the new episode has aired. It shows people who are behind where to stop in order to avoid spoilers if they haven't watched the current episode.

Maybe it's not convenient for you to do this because you are posting on your phone -- maybe you think it's the dumbest idea ever. I don't know.

But since you've started the discussion for the new episode for the past couple of weeks now without making an explicit statement that you're talking about the brand new episode in your post, I could also have said to you "wow, it's like I never posted at all".

The plain fact is that any of us who live west of the Eastern/Central timezones and watch a west coast feed are always going to be watching 'behind live' compared to the EC crowd. Yes, I can see where it is fun to post as you watch the show, like people tweeting, but those of us in the west can never join in your conversation because we are always behind. ALWAYS.

I proposed a solution so we could all share the same space harmoniously, but apparently posting an explicit reference that you're watching the new episode at the top of a post is too much to ask.

And people wonder why a lot of us think all-season threads suck.

I started this (sucky?) all-season thread because I thought there would not be enough interest for single eps....so mea culpa....

Anyhoo-how funny was it when Christopher's mannequin's head fell off?

I think Fabio should be the ONLY one to have children out of this bunch-the rest of them were so mean!

Although Dimitri's baby was advanced, he slept in a "big boy bed" LOL

Melissa really did luck out, they liked her mom outfit, even though it was (IMHO) awful, and I think that may have saved her.

Christopher's was nice, but not really original.

None of the boy outfits were bad at all. I wish two of them could have won.

For the record, I want to state that when I saw Angie's message, what I read was this:

(Mid-episode of It's Fashion Baby, for Jan. )
I hit the word "baby" and stopped reading immediately, so at the time I posted my placemarker post, I hadn't read the current episode title in the end of her post.

It does kind of defeat the purpose of putting the episode title in as a placemarker if you put it in at the END of the post.

I wanted to ask you and the other moms about this. Isn't the faux baby kind of misleading, in that it has that really skinny little diaper? No real baby is going to have a diaper as puny as that.

If you drape on the form without putting a diaper on it first, then you're going to have a garment that has no wearing ease for the diaper.

I will say for the record that I also like the headings for each episode. I have no problems at all with an all season thread for a show like this. I just agree that the headings help sort it out.

One thing I wondered with Chris' outfit was how safe was it for the baby/toddler - I was thinking she would start pulling those things off and eating them. Maybe it's made better. I think Fabio's should have won - he did think things out like using velcro and making the outfit look like a two piece but really was a one piece.
