    Buddy vs. Duff

    I don't think I'm going to watch again either. Even if they're over-emphasizing Buddy's boorishness for the show (I didn't watch Cake Boss, so I'm not sure), it's clear that he's a miserable little brat, and that's not any kind of fun to watch. I love Duff, and I was so excited to see Geof again—Ace of Cakes was my happy place show when it was on—but it's not worth it if I have to watch Buddy's nonsense too. What a creep.

    S07.E07: Pure Imagination

    I loathed Sean on his season, but at least then he made a few interesting and pretty garments. This season he's been just as irritating but far less memorable. I'd have sent Michelle home last night, but Sean would have been my second choice. That dress was the sartorial equivalent of a shrugged shoulder.

    The only designs I really liked tonight were by the three designers who were safe. I'd have given the win to Biddell or Dmitry. I did like the boombox outfit, but the rest, ugh. Also, I know we're in the lame-duck stage of the Lifetime era and none of this matters, but still: the judges almost gave the win to a carpet pad. A carpet pad!

    S07.E01: All Stars Goes Global

    I hope there wasn't any serious debate about the winner. I loved the Mountie-inspired outfit, but Dmitry was in a whole other league in this challenge. It was beautiful, and it was very true to the challenge. I'm not even particularly a Dmitry fan, but that was a well-deserved win.

    I almost decided not to watch when I saw her. One of my least favorite contestants ever. And those glasses…seriously?

    S04.E08: Episode 08

    I'm moderately interested in the other characters (though not Noah), but I do wonder what the point of the show without Allison will be. Not that she was my favorite character, despite my devout shipping is Cole and Allison, but she was one of the main focal points of the show, and I don't see it holding together without her.

    S06.E09: Posen on the Red Carpet

    That's exactly how I felt. And Anthony's dress was beautiful, so I was fine with the win. That color was a great choice. But I loved every single thing about Fabio's, and I agreed with the judges that it seemed more like future fashion than any of the others, which were all familiar and current styles (maybe not Edmund's...). It's a little ironic that Orange Josh went home for this dress, which was relatively inoffensive compared to some of the garbage he's sent down the runway before. I kind of loved his color combination, in fact. But whatever, at least he's gone. Fingers crossed that Helen will be next.

    S06.E06: Thrown For A Loop By Betty Boop

    I've agreed with the judges now than usual this season, but OMG Orange Josh's was not Betty Boop. It was straight up mall fashion for tweens, and once again, I question his taste level. I don't know, maybe I'm just blinded by the fact that I can't stand Josh, but that was not a winning outfit. It wasn't the worst thing there, but it was bottom 3. Nothing really grabbed me tonight. I did like Stanley's and (ugh) Helen's, but neither had much to do with Betty Boop. Edmund's was ma Aubree the closest in terms of structure and style, but that fabric was his downfall. Still, I wouldn't have had him or Char as the worst, and I'd have sent Merline home over either of them.

    S06.E04: Balls Out!

    Josh's dress was a crime against fashion. And good taste. How that thing was safe is beyond me. Fabio was robbed, a little, but I take loved the colors and iridescence of Stanley's dress. As someone said upthread, it might have been better at a shorter length, but I still loved it. Helen really should have grown out of her nonsense by now. It's just tedious. Don't go away mad, Helen, just go away.

    S30.E01: "You're a Champion? Prove it!"

    I could watch footage from Iceland all day long... Almost none of the teams really stood out to me, except the skiers, the Yalies, and team NBA. I'm a basketball fan and loved both of those guys as players, so I'm rooting for them, but they do need to step it up.

    S16.E14: Finale, Part 2

    Kentaro seems like a lovely guy, and I've liked a lot of what he did during the season. But I wouldn't have given him the win based on that collection. I wish him well, and I'm happy for him, but...

    S16.E14: Finale, Part 2

    I wish Ayana hadn't used the shiny fabrics, but overall I liked her collecton the best. Kentaro's was pretty solid too, and I liked some of Brandon's pieces a lot. All three of their collections can be described as fashon. Margarita's, not so much.

    I was a little concerned that that red bath towel, I mean dress, was going to fall right off the model.

    S16.E13: Finale, Part 1

    I agree about Kenya. I love her personality, and she did some beautiful work this season, but her looks tonight were just uninspired. But I'm beginning to think that Margarita is going to win. Something about the judges' reactions to her looks tonight made me think she's getting the redemption/winner edit. With Brandon's outfits looking kind of washed out and Kentaro being inconsistent, I can really see the judges rewarding Margarita for her "bold vision." Even though that shorts outfit was truly ghastly. I'm kind of rooting for Ayana at this point. Her looks are unusual, in a good way, and some are really beautiful despite the drab palette.
  15. Leather isn't necessarily a by-product of the meat industry. It often comes from animals who were killed for their hides. But I think the perception that it's a byproduct helps explain why a lot of people are okay with leather but not fur. Nothing was completely successful tonight (though Kentaro's and Brandon's were very good), but I mean, Margarita's dress looked like a bath mat. Seriously, judges?
