    Based on last night alone I agree Kit should have gone, but taking the previous episodes into consideration I believe either Rami or Ricky should have gone. Ricky is in over his head. If he made it to the final three his collection would, more than likely, bore the hell out of me. And a collection by Rami of nothing but draped women walking the runway would have me scrambling for the remote.

    On the winning side, although I thought the couture numbers by both top teams were great, I thought Jillian's ready-to-wear blew Christian's piece away. For me, hands down, the winner last night was Jillian.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    The fact that Jillian's coat was so ready to wear made all the difference to me. Couture is about fantasy, and C + C had it in spades. Jillian's coat was exquisite, but the clothes underneath were not up to par, especially the pants. However, their ready to wear dress was better than C + C's. Christian has done that top before, only with sleeves. But that gown was to die for. Alberta Ferreti is a mega major name in fashion, and she was impressed with both gowns, but especially with C + C's. Couture as intricate as theirs take weeks (or more) to make. I thought it was close, but Nina's smile told the whole story.

    I think Christian's gown was gorgeous! I think it's one of the best dresses I've seen in the history of the show. It was ready for the cover of any high fashion magazine.

    Fashion is inevitably a matter of opinion. However, I think it is stretching the point to say that Jillian's coat was anything less than couture. The fantasy was 'Punk', (with a nod to equestrian) and it was realized with great care, skill and vision. And, perhaps most importantly, there was a direct correlation between the design and the hairstyle. That, after all, was the challenge.

    Again, I won't debate on who's garment was more couture, but I think you do a disservice to Jillian by discounting hers as anything less than couture.

    As to the blouse and pants, the judges (including Alberta Ferrati) seem to differ with your opinion so I will exit without comment.

    Loved that gown. How on earth did they manage to make the ruffles so quickly?

    Kudos to Chris and Christian.

    Sweet P needs to grow a motherloving backbone!

    50 years of feminism, and she throws it all away with her submissive behaviour on the show.

    Actually, I think if Mean Pea ever got released on the show, it would be extremely ugly.

    I loved Christian's dress. It looked like something Nicole Kidman would wear.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I think it's weird that only one half of the winning team got immunity, couldn't they have settled for the ad as the prize liked they did last year? I didn't get why a team leader was needed, they're only two people per team so it really doesn't feel necessary.

    Also, it is kind of mean that one half of a team (in this case Victorya) has immunity, she could've easily sabotaged Jillian. If Victorya wanted Jillian out, and since she had team leader status, she could've made bad decisions to land their team in the bottom 2 and by default Jillian would be out.

    I don't really know what my point is

    I thought that Jillian's dress truly looked like it was sewn together in a hurry. Even though Kit's design was boring, I thought it was much better sewn.
