I really, really, really don't like this twist. Doesn't seem fair.

I like the challenge itself, though.

ETA: Love Angela's shirt! Also, I think Jeffrey has a thing about not liking tall, confident women (which is why he hates Angela..?). As a tall, confident woman myself, I have definitely encountered a certain type of insecure man who just can't deal with tall women.

We gave up our TV last week. Can somebody give me a spoiler-protected recaplet? I'm desperate to know what happened!

Poor Laura!! Pregnancy hormones raging. Now I really want her to make it. :

Thank God!!! Perhaps Jeffrey is going to get auf'd!!

Pixel, I would do as you asked, but I don't know how! Hopefully someone else can help out.

I have to say Laura *totally* rubbed me the wrong way at the beginning. She seemed so harsh, together but condescending. I see her as more of a complete person, and I surprised myself by rooting for her!

bye, bye sunshine! Though I understand why.

Hooray for the winner! As I watched the show, I rooted more and more for that person.

Since those models are modeling during Fashion week, can we just assume it's because their designer's are in the final 3?

So it must be Clarissa you're talking about. Am I right?
Didn't it say they were in Taiwan? Fashion week is in NYC so they are not related.

I just went to the pr website and they have already posted the results! It is only 8:15 PST and they spoiled it!

I am going to try to do a spoiler



Warning :: Spoiler Ahead! Highlight to read message!
Angela, Kayne and Vincent are out and Laura won.


Jia is the one who was in the accident and she was not on tonite at all. There must be something coming up where she gets to return. So, basically, it is still up in the air who wins.

Jia was in this episode until the final runway part, she was in a bicycle accident on the way there. At the end they said that she is modeling again.

Oh! Is that what this meant:

"We were invited to Malan Breton from Taiwan's show yesterday"

Well, that is good. I think her sister also got in an accident this summer and did not make it. Wow! Rough stuff.

Whoops, wrong model. That was angela lindval's sister who was killed in a train crash.

I love how Angela used it for stuffing her bag.....even though it was a solid frame. It reminded me of when Keith(?, forgot his name) used the bracelet as dog collar & tried to pass it off as his design.

Yeah...it wasn't bad when Michael lined his bag, at least he MADE it, but Angela was just stuffing hers. Totally cheating.

yes, that was stupid, but did you see Jeffrey? He was CUTTING his big hunks of fabric up into little scraps!! Now that's cheating! They just showed it in the background.

thanks goodness Angela & Vincent both went right back out the door. I wish they had invited Malan & Allison back. If Angela was gonna get called back, I really wish she could have made a couture dress, her hand sewing is wonderful. Vincent: Pffffft!

Felt SO sorry for Laura. What is she 8-12 wks preggers? Hell, I cried no matter what anybody said to me. SO glad she won.

Wish Jeffrey's had been a little more awful & Kayne's had been a little more wonderful. What happened to the man behind the MM icon dress? The man behind Miss USA? I think he burnt out, poor thing. Not surprised to see him go. I wish Angela had made something awesome just to see the look on Jeffrey's face. Punk. He only hates her bcz her outfit (in the macy's window) beat his.

Not that excited about Michael's dress this week, but liked the overall look. Nazri (?) is the perfect model for him, curvy.

Hope Michael wins it all, want Laura & Uli in the final.

Carry on... Maria

The twist really bothered me - I felt it was unfair to the remaining designers. I also felt bad for Angela, who appeared upset, and Vincent because he is just generally clueless (and I just DO NOT want to see any more of Vincent, thank you very much). Seeing their designs it was clear why they were auf'd in the first place.... So this was just an exercise in increasing the stress of the contestants without any real purpose. It also seemed cruel because I didn't see any way that either of them would win the challenge - meaning that it was just another opportunity for them to be kicked off..... how stressful to go through that again.

I did like the black and white challenge since it allowed the designers to really focus on design/construction on an otherwise even playing field. I don't understand at all the point of use all the fabric...

Loved Laura and Michael's designs. I'm glad Laura won since she hasn't had a win - thought either of them deserved it. Both of their models are really great, too. Felt bad for Laura dealing with all the stress and first trimester too.

Uli's I felt was more of the same and is getting pretty boring. Although I like her I find myself sort of hoping she doesn't make it to the final three because I can't imagine a collection from her being any different than what we've already seen.

Kayne's - not great. Not horrible, but not great. I think if he'd included more white he wouldn't have been eliminated.

Jeffrey's was just an ugly mess - hookerish and awful. It would have been tons better without the shiny thigh-high stockings.... Normally I sort of like the edgy/punk kind of thing that he turns out - but that dress was a stinker.

Angela and VIncent's designs were both stinkers too. The bolero/ruffle/vampire/bull fighter thing that Angela put together - ugh. It had good elements (the front of the dress was ok) but as usual was over-done in places and didn't work overall. Vincent was the usual poorly made, poorly constructed, bad proportion mess that he typically turned out. No suprises from either of them. At least Vincent didn't say anything about getting off or being turned on!


So - The top 4 (4 - yes) show at Fashion Week. All the episodes up to tonight were filmed months ago. The fourth designer shows as a 'decoy' and also because of logistics of filming and giving time to get home and make the collection, etc. The top 4 are sent home to do their collections. Next week's episode filmed right after/during fashion week when the 4th designer will be out. They will have already shown at Fashion Week (like Kara did last season). Viewers will only see the top three in the finale show. So - already we know that Uli, Laura, Jeffery, and Michael will show at Fashion Week.... we just don't know who will get to see as the 'top three' and who the winner will be.

A few weeks back, I read in people that Laura is due in November. I think Heidi is either a month ahead or behind her. The finale should be interesting with two (hopefully') lovely preggers ladies!

The PR show at Fashion Week is Friday so pics of the 4 collections will be floating around soon. I *think* that the reunion show is filmed in NYC this week- it is usually filmed right before the runway show at Fashion Week.
