As far as hosting goes I will be mindful and not pick a best. The newbees are excellent. I am fine any way. None of those people are going to starve from not being host. I do love Tim. He is just very thoughtful, cares, has a good eye....(cannot detect problems with impropriety but knows modern)
Rami was one of my favorites. Him not winning is going to help someone who could use a win. If I made an outfit with big dots, people would say I was using curtain fabric. That being said, I like Kenly more than before. But girlfriend is always rockin the 80s.
"Honest concern for others is the key factor in improving our day to day lives. When you are warm-hearted, there is no room for anger, jealousy or insecurity. A calm mind and self-confidence are the basis for happy and peaceful relations with each other. Healthy, happy families and a healthy peaceful nation are dependent on warm-heartedness." Dalai Lama
Honetly I would wear Rami's look to work on Monday if I could afford it! Kenely has used the same basic structure ever since she was a part of PR. Her looked reminded me of something I might have worn when I was 10. None of her polka dots matched-up & she won...sigh! I am wathing reruns of her first season on PR & she just designs the same stuff over & over. Michael C coppied someone eles's desgin should have gotten him aufed just for that alone.
I am honestly not fully understanding who/what the contestants/judges are looking for at this point. They get on a designer for being too junior yet a junior collection came in second place last season. They say something is for a more mature woman yet Austin stays. I am sorry Michael Kors & Issac do not design for juniors or the ben-gay crowd.
I am taking a break from this show....they cut Rami & they lost me.
Some people dream of having a big swimming pool - with me it's closets."
To be honest I liked Jerrell's coat much better than Michael's because of the patterns in the fabric it looked interesting. I didn't not like the striped fabric Michael used he made a top and coat out of it and it all just looked blah to me.

Ah, for just one time I would take the Northwest Passage.
Biography | Nina Garcia
Says here: "A New York Times bestselling author of four books on style: The Little Black Book of Style, The One Hundred, The Style Strategy and Nina Garcia’s Look Book. Responsible for covering the designer fashion markets of New York, Milan and Paris" .... "Recipient of the 2010 Oracle Award organized by the NGO Fashion Group International (FGI)." ....
"Prior to her work with Marie Claire, she worked as Fashion Director at Elle, and prior to that held positions at both Mirabella and Perry Ellis. A graduate of Boston University, as well as the famed Fashion Institute of Technology"
I'd say being fashion director at Elle and Marie Clare over the last decade so years means she's done a helluva lot in fashion....even without her other credentials. Like her or not - she's got major fashion cred.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
Personally, I thought revealing his having HIV positive status on the show was not the appropriate thing to do but rather a cry for attention. I know a lot of people have tons of sympathy for him because of this and I understand that. The show was not the place to do this unless you want a sympathy vote. None of us can say how long we'll live...and I say that after being really sick and almost dying last year. Any of us can die at any time, regardless of age.
That being said, I still think he's a genius fashion designer, probably a lot better than most of the designers we've seen on the show. He really doesn't need to play the victim...his work speaks for itself...although I thought this last creation wasn't his best but all in all, probably better than most of the others. I think his styling and accessories were his downfall...not the outfit itself.
I really don't "hate" him and I would totally understand and be satisfied if he won this competition. Without a doubt, he deserved to win against Gretchen.
As someone else posted I did also not think the clothes of Michael and Jerell looked the same.
And if I remember correctly yes in Michael's season he was accused of copying but back then his fellow designers did not like him. Thought he was not good enough and got angry and jealous because the judges did like his designs. So some of the competitors started to find stuff and were very nasty towards Michael.
I'll miss Rami. Cannot believe he's out.
