Make sure you add loves to cry and use the F word to that letter

I cried!

I am so happy that ALL the designers agreed on the outcome.

I'm not in agreement with the winning look - it just didn't do anything for me.
I would have chosen the "sonnet" dress.

I thought K or K would have gone home. There were problems with the losing look, but I liked the colors, flow etc much better than K or K's.

I'm ok with the winning look - completely editorial. Was surprised when it got to the runway and I liked it.

I wish Kevin had gone. There was nothing about the whole concept I liked from fabric choice on.

Glad the tent was in the bottom two. Think if it had lost she would have gone home.

And yes I cried too. I thought there were a lot of redeeming features to his dress that I just didn't see in the other 2 in the bottom.

I think the judges purposefully didn't choose the sonnet dress. Both were beautiful.

Still laughing about the Pregnant Faerie comment. A tutu around the boobs just isn't flattering, even belted it bulged.

I totally agree with the winner chosen for last night. That outfit was uber cool and the styling was awesome. I would certainly never wear "pants" like that, but for a magazine editorial it was spot on. And it was impressive that she was able to use denim, a very natural textile, to make such a high-end looking jacket.

Plus, maybe her winning will shut Ken's nasty mouth for a while. LOL. They could have sent him home last night and I wouldn't have argued.

I thought the tent dress should have been sent home. It seemed like the judges had nothing good to say about it, so I don't understand their rationale. I'm glad Tim used his "save" option.

I was over the muumuu a couple of seasons ago when the winner kept presenting it as a maxi dress over and over and over again.

In my honest opinion if the design doesn't enhance the feminine form then it is a bad design. It doesn't have to hug the body but you should look at it and have a positive reaction that she wears it well.

The winning design keeps blowing me away because she made it work. I think that they were shorts was much better. Kept it sassy.

And BTW how can anyone that buys wool camo look down their nose at denim!(it was Ken that derided it wasn't it?). I was a bit sad that Bradon's look really didn't work because I liked the technique. Glad he made it through - maybe it is something he can revisit if he makes the finale.

Wow!

I am really happy with the group that is left.

I liked Alexandria dress but I didn't think it was OTT fabulous. It was a black roman tunic... hmmm....

I loved how Kate's trousers worked. They really went well with her shoes.

Helen's was nice but I wanted something more.

I'm ok with Miranda going though I did like her trousers more than Alexander's. I think she fell down "dressing herself" she needed to think more high fashion than that. If she had used someone like Zooey Deschanel as a muse then they may have respected that more. Though her top was a hot mess again. I get that she likes to mix patterns uniquely but it looks like a 3 year old was allowed to dress herself.

Bradon was lucky - that really was bad bridesmaid. He seems to get fixated on a technique rather than thinking about the suitability of the challenge. His shoes were adorable and even a cropped trouser instead of a circle skirt may have upped the look... I liked the technique on the top but not for this challenge.

I thought Dom's dress was cute but too long because the shoes were so chunky and flat that they already cut off the leg. Would have liked to see the design about 3 inches shorter.

I liked Jeremy's top... then again I'm not the target demo. I thought it was funny they brought up Pretty Woman and he refused to see the comparison. Definitely should have gone with an interesting skirt treatment or a trouser with those boots

I liked Justin's and was a bit surprised he wasn't top 3. Out of the black outfits it had a lot more impact than the others and was quirky enough for those outrageous shoes!

Karen's I haven't decided whether I liked it or not. I didn't particularly like the jacket and I wondered if the model didn't take it off for fear of fallen out.... Would have liked to have seen more of it.

I thought Ken's LBD short waisted the model, perfect to hide a little baby bump!... but the judges liked it...

I didn't like Ken's. I think it was time for Miranda to go home.
I liked Jeremy's top - I thought it was cool. What do I know???? Not much I guess.

I wasn't real happy with Dom's dress - too chunky for me. Bradon was lucky he didn't go home.

I loved Justin's outfit - it was so different and showed off those shoes.

well, wasn't that just a fun challenge!

I really wanted Ken to go home - even though his look was a smidge - a very small smidge than the loosing look. I am tired of outbursts and language.

I thought Kate should have won - her whole look was great, not just 1 piece.

Yeah, I wasn't so enamored with the winning jacket either.

Ken has MAJOR issues. I wonder if his church lady mentor would be as supportive if she knew he was being a major a-hole and can't complete a sentence without the F word in it.

I was really hoping he'd get eliminated last night. He ruins the show for me. But he's been in the bottom so many times, I know his time is coming. It just hasn't come soon enough.

I find the active wear challenge (promoting Heidi's stuff) really boring. How many ways can we stripe leggings?? I also liked Kate's jacket more than Helen's.

The whole Ken/Helen thing looked so contrived. The non-scripted script must have said "insert drama into boring season".

I did LOVE Michael Kors being back!

I keep thinking that Kate might just win this season and that they are purposefully not letting her win challenges if there is someone else in the running.

Glad Tim stuck up for Alexandria and said that Heidi had given her positive feedback on the pant on the visit. I don't like the pant, but I thought Michael Kors was a bit of a queen bee yotch in his critique.

I think that's his usual MO. But maybe he ramped it up a little since he's not on the show every week anymore. He had to make sure that his one appearance was a doozy.

I'll listen to his fashion advice when he starts wearing something other than a blazer over a black t-shirt.

Just gonna say more than one designer should have thought about what the models would wear underneath... not a fan of the visible panty through the garment.

Six more weeks then you can look? or is it seven with the final four having collections and then an elimination before the show...

I never plan that far ahead. ba ahahahhahha!

To be honest, I'd have to look at the website to find out how many people are still left in the competition (I just don't retain stuff like that). So I have no clue how many weeks are left at this point. But yeah, I can wait.

DARN IT!! Ken survives another challenge. Guess the judges haven't seen enough of this yet. LOL

Even though I'm gunning for Ken, I can understand why they sent Jeremy home. He's been told almost every single week that his designs are not fresh or modern. He was running out of time to turn it around, for sure.

How exciting for Dom that they're going to produce her dress, also. Talk about going from the bottom to the top!

Don't worry - there is plenty more work for Jeremy than Ken. That baby boomer generation needs someone to keep designing for them!

Seriously can't believe they accepted Ken's attitude, especially with Heidi. It is hard to take criticism but it isn't as if they are Michael Kors

I'm so happy Heidi finally said something about Kate's dresses being so shortwaisted. She should know where her model's waist is by now. Give that girl and extra inch to the waist and I think that dress may have won. TBH out of all the winning designs Kate's was one I could see walking around my "Southern" town.

Still didn't like Ken's streetwalker look...

I did like Justin's look.

Helen's reminded me of my grandmother's chenille bedspread...

Was a little surprised no one wanted to work with Bradon who just won the challenge. I did think Ken chose well.

Wait, River, I am confused? I know that PR contestants have to stick around and go out with the group (so people who see the filming don't know who has been eliminated)...but I didn't imagine that so many actually got to have a runway show to keep up the charade.

I thought Dom's remake looked like something Uli made several years ago.

Helen's dress would have fit into Mila's 1960's vibe if it had been black & white.

Yes PR had 9 runway shows for ny fashion week. As soon as I got kicked off I would be brainstorming for fashion week.

Going to be short replies for a while. My pc has died etc.

That design was beyond plaid. As the Belk man said he can see that in multiple fabrics. A good design shouldn' t be dependent on a certain fabric.

Remember the year a gal kept being in the bottom 3, and ended up WINNING?

that being said, I didn't see a certain someone's clothing on the runway.

Very happy with last nights' results, although would have really liked to see Justin win. That signature idea was pretty cool. I wonder if the fans get to keep the outfits? Although I am sure there are a couple who didn't want to!

Was VERY happy to see the drama queen FINALLY get booted. He has been in the bottom so many times but I was afraid they would keep him around just for the drama.

OMG--Ken is such a tool! And then they reward him by giving him his own room. At least it was only for one night.

I loved the winning look. I think the judges selected it not only for the dress but also for the overall make-over. I bet that woman feels like a million bucks after getting rid of all that mangy hair.

I also liked the short black swingy dress and that gal's short new do. I think she got the best dress--it fit beautifully, was well made, and it's actually something she could wear more than once. I'd be envious of her if I were the other super fans. LOL

Just watched today. I loved Justin's too.

So did Ken get booted for making a dress the fan loved or for his epic tantrum. I'm betting a bit of both. I don't remember much of tim's comments to the judges being aired this week. Wonder if he defended alexander.

Alexandra was lucky there was an uglier dress and an unfinished suit. That looked thrift shop. She needed an artsy interview outfit not Madonna's cast offs from 1984.

I thought Tim's comments were missing after the runway as well, I don't think he was even in the shot when the judges were interacting with the models.

Yeah, I'm thinking some behavior issues were discussed and edited out because it wasn't strictly a runway decision. As he has issues I don't think they wanted to give him an excuse to stalk them.

On this challenge in the past we have seen designers go home because the real woman hated her look. Giving him his own room was probably the final straw. And isolated his real departure so he couldn't vandalize the belongings of the others nor did they have to be in the apartment when he left.

Alexandra was lucky there was an uglier dress and an unfinished suit. That looked thrift shop. She needed an artsy interview outfit not Madonna's cast offs from 1984.
I would bet that, too. He was a disgrace. The way he yelled at that production assistant was horrible. Based on that alone, if I were the producers I would have kicked his can back to Alabama immediately, not even allowing him to show his garment on the runway (and bringing in someone to finish it so that his model wasn't punished for his horrendous behavior).

God help anyone who has to work with him in the future. Or anyone who dates him. And let's hope he never buys a gun, because he seems just like the type that would come back to a former place of work and shoot up the joint. He needs serious psychological help.

really? let me just say how mad I am - I'M REALLY REALLY MAD.

She should NOT have gone home - yes it was bad, but the other person had been in the bottom before. I just don't like it.

I thought she would be in the top 3 and maybe even won.

I don't know...Kate's dress was a mess and she didn't really utilize her print. Alexander's dress was hideous in so many ways. If they were intent on sending two designers home, that didn't leave the judges many options.

I'm surprised that Alexandria wasn't in the bottom for the same reason (not showcasing her print). Not to mention her outfit didn't even look finished and it gave her model a little belly pooch. Not flattering -- and she's a model!

I think they should have announced at the beginning of the challenge that two designers would be sent home. Then perhaps those in the bottom would have been more thoughtful about their designs.

The winning dress was nice but I liked the blue print bomber jacket better. I think it evoked his muse (the BMX rider) very well.

Dom and Bradon definitely top 2 for me. What was Kate thinking? But I agree I was shocked when Alexandria was safe. I think she is a judges favorite, because that outfit and print were hideous. I hoped Kate was going to use as a secondary muse, her fabric from the southern challenge.

Alexandria's top looks like a piece of ripped fabric with armholes. Her outfit was a total mess IMHO. She was right though when she said Kate's outfit looks like a giant tampon..bwahahaha!
