I personally think this was the best season yet (as much as I loved Jay and also Daniel Vosovic). In terms of the runway shows, they were the most creative and original-- each designer had his/her own point of view. I remember feeling let down last season-- Chloe, Santino and Daniel had very muted (except for the ugly colors of Chloe's shoulder pads and prom dresses) palettes. I also like the idea of having (and showing on TV) four shows instead of three.
To respond to comments about Jeffrey's talent/look and how limited it is-- it might be but I am sure he will continue to reinvent himself. The shows that are presented at Bryant Park do not try to appease everyone's tastes. Whereas Chanel suits are timeless, current popular designers include: Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Proenza Schouler, Narciso Rodriguez, Zac Posen, etc..., and while Jeffrey is still not quite on par, I think he has the most potential.
In saying this, I am not trying to take away anything from Michael, Laura and Uli-- I think they are all fabulous designers and I LOVED Laura's and Uli's colelctions. However, I have to agree with the judges-- they just didn't show as much versatility.
