WTF, WTF, WTF?!! I may be a lonely minority here, but Ayana should have won! I was screaming at the TV in rage! Ayana has shown that she can do anything: beautiful dresses, sharp pants and jackets, "young" looks, gorgeous head wraps, and even avant garde, all while having a distinct point of view. Kentaro was hit and miss the entire season! He was on the bottom a few times even! His runway show was well done, and I did love the atmospheric music, but hardly any of those clothes were wearable. Yeah yeah, I know a runway show is supposed to be kind of out there, but his clothes were just as costumey in their own way as Margarita's were. And can you see Kentaro designing for the JC Penney woman? Nope, me neither. Whereas Ayana would have nailed it. Bad, bad call by the judges.
As for Brandon, he became too cocky and his show was boring, but I did feel bad seeing him so destroyed by the loss. I think and hope he'll be fine. Margarita's collection was like throwing a lot of prints and sequins at the wall and seeing what stuck, and I thought the judges were avoiding a hard critique by praising the "exuberance" of it. I will give her this though: the yellow caftan thing with the giant sequined fish on it actually worked on the runway.
Ayana's final dress was one of the most gorgeous things I've ever seen in PR, and I've watched nearly all seasons. She has it all, and I really hope some design house snaps her up.
Again, I may be a lonely minority, but I like hearing from the models and I enjoyed getting to know their personalities.
