Thoughts?

Mine behind cut in case someone hasn't seen the finale.


Well, to begin with, I would have much rather seen Chris than Rami in the final 3. And I just peaked at his collection at Fashion Week; I still love him. Actully, in looking... NY Magazine did a spread on all the PR designers, so Sweet P also showed a collection.

But as far as the actual finale goes:

Rami - "celebration of women"? To me, half his designs incorporated saddlebags, which are a) unflattering b) women actively try to get rid of them.

Favorite: The green/taupe woven corsety gown
Least Favorite: Tie between the gold Grecian thing, and the red sack dress

Jillian - Overall nice, but I totally didn't get/like the embellishments on the shoulders/arms, like the suit jacket/skirt combo with the pointy shoulder sheer dohickies.

Favorite: Red lined jacket with hood, followed closely by the black jacket with gold trim that was part of what looked like a riding outfit (sans the hat)

Least Favorite: The gold pleated cocktail dress with off the shoulder sleeves. And WTF with the black Romanesque mohawk hat?

Christian - I've softened for him, even if it's just a result of being sick of Rami and I think Jillian is melodramatic, but not in that fierce way. She would never die of barfness. His collection was very "him" and I like his stuff visually but it's all top-heavy which I think is flattering to very few. He's very obsessed with neck rufflage.

Favorite: Both two-toned dresses, not that either would look good on me.

Least Favorite: The big ruffled coat his model wore with him at the end, just a little overwhelming with fabric and blobby.


And there you have my novice opinion of the show.

All in all, I was surprised. I thought they were going to give it Rami. His collection wasn't the best in my opinion; I really did like what Christian did even if it was more wearable artwork than fashion. I just seemed like Christian's work was very young and full of itself while Rami was much more of the 'next great American fashion designer'.

But, I will agree with Tim that this season was best of the four so far. Although, I do miss Santino's impressions of Tim Gunn.

Did you have fun playing Spot The Bravo Star during the scenes in the tent in Bryant Park?

Well, that's about it for me, I need a breaky-break.

P.S, if you haven't seen it, best picture ever!

There is such a story behind that.
