Those studious glasses on the one almost fooled me. Almost.

I love a boy in glasses :swoon:

Ooh, good idea. :grope: Even better if those two boys need helping dressing for those outfits, as they'd be exactly as dumb as I like my boy toys.

He looks awfully happy to be there. :smokin:

Interesting that L'Wren Scott is the guest judge and not an actress or singer. Joshua M's collection was much more subdued than what he's shown on the show so far. I loved the kaftan Anya was wearing.

Thomas Jane in the audience :grope:

Based on the designs I saw, I favored Viktor and Anthony Ryan, but I also liked the one dress they showed of Bert's. I didn't see anything of Anya's, so I'm curious to see what she did.

All black from Josh? I wonder if he is a decoy, seems you would be throwing away the competition with that choice.

Here's an image (http://cache2.asset-cache.net/xc/124372882.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=77BFBA49EF8789219B309651A2344B3F0F505B68228B808A 27D9735E2D156D15D8A964C79AF0F088) that shows some of Anya's designs. It looks like a lot of long, flowing dresses -- beautiful, but not far from her comfort zone.

Getty images has a gallery for the runway (http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.aspx?query=z.i.H4sIAAAAAAAEAOy9B2AcSZYlJi9t ynt_SvVK1-B0oQiAYBMk2JBAEOzBiM3mkuwdaUcjKasqgcplVmVdZhZAzO2d vPfee--999577733ujudTif33_8_XGZkAWz2zkrayZ4hgKrIHz9-fB8_In7dfLn91etf49f4NX6PX_dskV3kvyb9-pj-_5us6uqn82mb1uvlVXb9a47wxc2PafVrJnVVtS-zOls0v7Z-9mvh_7s7-PU3M-1_d_zzG9P_f713r6-b03cGxq_p_c3vZufm119Tfwe4Xzs7n1rEzB_4P_r8NXe4x0Xr3 nS__zrUuLRf2L_w3q9Lf9QLCzb889dH81389evx5xMLo_M3v3Y eQrF_MpQdC-W8A8X9za_VIRT7J0PZs1DqDhT3N1EmNy_9mvjDTAmTaRe__Yam LSaDaUs0yVfm018z-OvXzieN_cb8wcTOHQ7e779W7pp7v__azWplP8cfBsffyr54OXU vut9_nar2WMX-xV9Ncv8r8xeeX3t2tTS__5rmj18H_2_W3niCv37tPHMY-H_Q7yv_C_vHr9sE0MI_f-13z567iaA_7BdZ7eHm_fEbNdNqlT9ZL2elR8TgUwPwxwHnwc59 _P7rEA-tbfPgr19nXssfQiH8ZSB8DAh7ew_xO7GJExz_j1_vRX6VN-3_EwAA___3AjCEOQQAAA..&rid=120846387&rcat=Event&rt=NY%3a+Project+Runway+-+Runway+-+Spring+2012+Mercedes-Benz+Fashion+Week), but mostly the pics are of the designers so far. (And as soon as I posted, they began adding more photos of the models walking.)

Especially since this is the spring collections. The trends, which many of them seemed to miss, seem to be going toward more color.

Getty takes a while, especially to tag and organize them. Blogging Project Runway will assemble all the Getty photos in order of presentation and link them on their home page. Last year, it took until well into the evening to get everything.

I think I'd prefer the black. WTF is with the fit on the second one? :scream:

I'm too impatient. ;)

Yeah, after looking at the Getty Images, it appears that Josh M had color...but not good color. The silhouettes in his collection are also not very cohesive. I hope he wasn't one of the finalists.

I like what I could see of Anya's, but it was a collection of flowy dresses and I'm sure that Michael Kors will say that the color story is disjointed.

Josh's has a lot of color. In fact, some of his pieces look inspired by his shirt last night. Hmmm.

I am loving Anya's. Flowy resort prints. But Nina didn't like Ulli did she?

Looks like they must have had to do a bathing suit.

Looking further, I am wondering if the color outfits really are Josh's. There are at least 5 outfits with bright pattern, green or purple, but none of them are visible in the picture of Josh on the runway, though 5 completely different designs are visible. The only reason I might think otherwise is if this (http://cache2.asset-cache.net/xc/124374800.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=77BFBA49EF8789219B309651A2344B3FB62B69DAB8324391 27D9735E2D156D15731F0F564671C27F) is a "bridge" design between the bright colored crap and the darker, more sculptural designs like this (http://cache3.asset-cache.net/xc/124374798.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=77BFBA49EF8789219B309651A2344B3F69E78FA6110F1CCC 27D9735E2D156D152C411E7092C53AEA) and this (http://cache4.asset-cache.net/xc/124373054.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=77BFBA49EF8789219B309651A2344B3F599929A6CBBB87CA 27D9735E2D156D1514CE61AF22A79702).

And I now back off those doubts. It looks like it is all one collection (http://cache2.asset-cache.net/xc/124374799.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=77BFBA49EF8789219B309651A2344B3F75B3B8EC0FBC8DD8 27D9735E2D156D15A37DD56C57ABFF30).

Victor seems to have gone very heavy into mesh an a pseudo-bondage look (http://cache3.asset-cache.net/xc/124370320.jpg?v=1&c=IWSAsset&k=2&d=77BFBA49EF8789219B309651A2344B3FC1293829D7B4BAED 27D9735E2D156D1553F4400481E00F90).

Nina and Michael gave Ulli a really hard time over repeating the same type of dress. I think Anya has shown more range than Ulli through the season. Bust as far as a Spring collection, Anya's looks closer than many of the others.

I wonder if they got down to final 4 and made two of them design a bathing suit as the decider on who would go to the final like they did with the wedding dresses in Leann's season.
