I didn't think Christopher would quit. He was vindicated by the judges. They clearly had sympathetic looks on their faces while they listened to his rant, and they called his name first. For a split second, I thought they were going to say Andrea was in the bottom. I wish they would have eliminated her and was disappointed that they didn't. I, too, would rather have had the menswear duo stick around. Yeah, their dress wasn't great, but at least they worked well with each other and didn't turn the runway into a blamefest. I would far rather have seen them get rewarded than Andrea.
Basically how I felt. I didn't mind the color, but it was just a "good enough" dress for me.As far as the designs (I'm using the model's names:
Lauran: I liked the structuring but not the coloring ideas. Glad they were safe though. It was a nice enough dress.
Kenley's was so lovely and she looked lovely in it - much better than most of her retro gear she wears. Glad it won - it was IMHO hands down the winner.
Yep. Looks like Ven is going to cruise to the final/win, unless something really weird happens.
That was definitely a red carpet dress.Valerie: Decent enough dress, but I didn't like the color on her. Did like the fact the team CORRECTLY used glittery materials though.
The dress wasn't a total disaster, it just needed some tweaking. I actually liked it, and would have loved it without the split.Anya: Oh dear, the dress was OK on her but the slit was NOT in the right spot. I actually liked this silhouette on her though and she seemed happen enough but not totally pleased.
I've already gotten wound up over Andrea, so I won't spout off here. Suffice it to say that I had total sympathy for Kooan. I wasn't so sure about Gunnar; after seeing Mr. Drama Queen for the past couple of episodes, I have to admit that I chuckled a little bit at seeing someone confront him. And I thought the dress was lovely. Once again, despite not liking his personality, I have to admit he did a good job on the dress. He is going to drive me crazy before this season is over.Irina: Dress looked good on her in spite of fit issues. She is still a major bitch though, and I felt bad for the pair who got her. I do think however it upped Koonan's game.
I wasn't particularly impressed. It looked like a big silver bedsheet, tied back so she wouldn't trip over it.April: This made her look old on the front side (though the purple hair doesn't help out. The back was nice though. It was nice enough and well made to be safe, but something more youthful would've been better.
I know, bless her. She looked like she wanted to cry, or say a few choice words. You're right, though. The designers were going strong with the print and their idea, but Mila steamrolled over them and forced them to ditch it at the last moment. What did she think she was going to get?Mila: I have NEVER felt as sorry for Mila as I did last night. You could tell she was so unhappy with that dress and probably wished for the print regardless of it being "too casual" for Emmy. Personally I thought it was a subtle enough print to work, but that's me. Deserved to be the bottom look.
I won't shed any tears over Andrea, which is kind of sad since I liked her in the audition episode. But her attitude has just been a hot mess--couldn't agree with you more about respecting the judges. And slinking away just because of a bad critique? As my Brit husband would say, "That's just not the done thing."Next week will be interesting in regard to who all quits. I do find it however disgusting that a designer would just up and leave without respecting the judges by saying they're leaving. Plus leaving in the middle of the night in NYC is dangerous - the cameramen ain't going to follow you when you quit until you get on a plane.
