    Seriously...what person of the male persuasion over the age of 13 (gay, straight or otherwise) doesn't know what a Double D cup is? Did Oliver grow up in a bubble? Because he is so softspoken and likeable he can say a lot of things that if more outspoken designers (like Josh) said them viewers would be having a fit. Just last night he was saying he didn't mind fat people, but he didn't like designing for them. He said he didn't want to design for woman with boobs just for woman with flat chests, and he also said something to the effect of he wished his clients would just be quiet and not have a say and let him do what he wants. Well Oliver when I find a boobless anorexic with laryngitis who likes wearing beige I'll send them your way.

    It was killing me while watching to admit how much I loved that dress . . . I, too, have come to really dislike Josh because of his behavior. But this dress was drop-dead wonderful.

    Good luck to Oliver and his extremely small client base: boob less, depressed, anorexic mutes.

    I haven't watched yet but want to say...Oliver hasn't been on my like list for a while. I dislike Josh, can care less about Bert either way, and Oliver...was a meh to me but now I dislike him (he is a quiet Josh).

    There is something wrong with Oliver. He is way too timid and freaked for there not to be a diagnosis.

    Not surprised at all by the amount of Oliver bashing. It's what I came in here for! He was just down-right offensive, but he did it in such a meek and mild way that it came off as just some weirdo whining. I've had my doubts about him from the beginning. Still don't buy the accent. Now I'm wondering about him even more . . . . Double D's ????? who doesn't know what that is?!?!

    I must admit, as much as I dislike Josh as a person, I did love that dress. Of course, I would have worn Anthony Ryan's dress as well. Getting quite accustomed to being on the opposite end of the spectrum from the judges.

    I did not care for Anya's design at all. It reminded me of a project created by a friend in Home Economics class (many years ago). She made a mistake cutting the fabric and ending up not having enough for both sleeves, plus her hem wasn't straight. It looked every bit as much of an "oops" back then as it did last night.

    I completely agree. Last week Victor should have won. This week, I thought Anya should have taken it, with Viktor second. I didn't think Josh stood a chance against their designs. Josh's dress was cute, but I felt like he got the win JUST because he refrained from bedazzling it. The ONLY reason he didn't was his client!!! Anya's design was interesting and beautiful. Viktor's was cute and perfect for his client.

    I agree with all the comments about Oliver. It is RIDICULOUS that he is incapable of dealing with a client that actually has a figure and ::gasp:: speaks and has an opinion!!

    I thought Josh's dress was beautiful, but something I have seen before. I agree with closetRTWatcher that he probably got the win because his client held him back from his usual style. I felt Victor should have won this week. Anya's was OK. It was different but I didn't like it. I thought the one sleeve didn't fit. Not the fact that it HAD one sleeve, but THAT one sleeve. Bert should have been safe but the warning was justified. His client was over the top about the dress. You could so tell. Oliver should have been in the bottom. And I feel that top looked like the one that Nina wore and was on the taxi cab ad.

    I agree.

    You know, all of these designers kind of live in their own little world, but Oliver is just way out there. Something feels off about him but I can't figure out what it is. He is so awkward, and not in the same way that so many of these folks are awkward. In some ways he makes me think of these guy I know who is high functioning autistic.

    Oliver said he didn't want to work with clients at all; just design. Not in the REAL world, sweetie. I think he thinks he can just hole up in his studio and design on manikins then hope someone likes the design (art work?) enough to buy it. He really is out of his element on this type of show where time management and odd challenges are the rule.
