I agree with it all!!My thoughts:
1. during the season, I always was amazed that Jeffrey finished his stuff so quickly - I can remember once when Tim asked him how he was doing on time, he said something to the effect that he was fine! He was about done! Everyone else was scrambling. I distinctly remember mentioning to my husband that Jeffrey always was finishing before everyone else. I think that he is just a very focused individual when he has to be.
2. does anyone else remember during the INC challenge (groups of 3) when he was working with Allison & Keith. . .well, Keith got kicked off so it was just the two of them - Jeffrey did an amazing pair of pants, ALONE, within the the time constraints and got rave reviews for them. He had to be working very quickly.
3. Laura and Michael really went after Jeffrey on the 'cheating' thing. Does nobody else find it interesting that Laura and Michael were the ones that Tim was the hardest on? Neither of them got rave reviews from Tim on their collection. I think that got both of them a little worried. Laura did what I would expect the spoiled, self-righteous (sp?), b*** that she is to do and called him cheater. I can forgive Michael for jumping on the bandwagon because he is under stress, and I've liked him the whole season. But Laura. . .she can't win on talent, so she calls her main competition a cheater. For shame.
4. Did you see the crushed look on Jeffrey's face when Laura told him that she told Tim that she thought he was cheating? Completely crushed. He didn't get mad and jump at her, he was just in disbelief. His whole life he has been told directly, and indirectly, that he wasn't good enough, and now Laura took something that he loved and worked incredibly hard on and accused him of cheating.
Personally, I don't think he behaved as a liar would have. . .I think he was genuinely dumbfounded. I do not believe he cheated. However, this is just personal opinion and I have no proof. I've been wrong before. . .I really hope I'm not wrong this time.
As for Laura. I have not liked her from day one. I hate her whole air of entitlement. I've dealt with lots of people like her and she doesn't feel she has to earn this, she feels she is OWED this. As for her sense of style? Old and boring. My husband and I were watching old black-and-white movies on the classic movie channel the other night and I swear that awful gown she made in France (with the gigantic ruffle) was in it.
Love him or hate him, Jeffrey is amazingly talented. I have not always agreed with his behavior or his approach to other people, but I've always been captivated by his designs - I may not like everything that he has done, but I'm always looking forward to seeing what it might be.
Just my humble opinions. . .
Go Team Jeffrey!
