Tim on the Grammy dress:
"Wendy is successful when she is given a lot of design direction with a heavy hand; that is, considerable constraints and restraints. Witness Banana Republic: design director Deborah Lloyd's brief was explicit, the fabrics and color story were prescribed, and the customer was a known entity."
The Banana Republic dress that Wendy created, was so basic, and she put a cape with it. I don't see anyone wearing that. I really thought that Jay and Austin's dresses would win.
And if you notice the pictures of Nancy O'Dell, she didn't exactly wear the exact creation of Wendy Pepper. I don't see anyone wearing that.
Wendy may be middle America, but to see what she creates in Elle magazine, I think not.
Actually, to add to what mariagoner said, Tim's comments about Wendy in that MSNBC article were even more pointed, something to the effect of "she is great with a Simplicity pattern, but she's not really a designer." and then something else about the fact that she shouldn't be let loose on her own. (The article is posted in the Jay and Wendy threads, you can find it if you want...)

as for Wendy, i wouldnt call her a villain...I would call her someone who has different strengths that her other contestants. Wendy does not have the ability to beat them out with her fashion skills, but she is a master of getting what she wants. She got on the show, so someone liked her stuff, but more importantly she has the perserverance which is so important in the industry. I dont like her designs, but if she had to sell out someone to win, then so be it. it is a competition after all!
She wont win. period. Parker Posey would never let that happen.
I have to disagree. I really don't see Wendy as someone who designs for the women of Middle America (candy bikini?). I think her designs are just poorly executed, and unimaginative overall. Would the average woman wear her envy dress? How about the post office challenge? She seemed to be going for dowdy on that one.

You can't have it both ways, Psycho Woman. If you're there to win at all costs, stop crying in the elevator and ranting at the cameraman and be the hard-nosed bitch you say you are.
The irony is, even though Jay doesn't like her, he was still trying to be fair, especially during the fight with Kara Saun, and she turns around and attacks him by telling him his strategy is not to shut up and insulting him. Girl doesn't know who her friends are. Or the closest thing to them she had on the show.
