The lipstick on Elena's models was very distracting. I liked Fabio's the best.

The thick, black brows on Dmitry's girls were truly WTF?! I didn't understand that styling choice at all. I liked most of the clothes, though.

Ven's attitude stinks, but I thought the dresses were BEAUTIFUL. He's going to no problems getting clients after this.

I actually really liked Elena's too. I don't know if she has it in her to make the top three, but her collection was original and cohesive. You have to have a real fit body (something she does) to wear those.

I don't know what Sonjia or Gunnar were doing; Sonjia looked like she was working with scraps and if anyone was doing an African collection you'd think it be her.

Yikes.

In real life the lipstick would be :scream:. But editorially, it was very cool.

I went back and looked at Fabio's. I do like what they are showing of his collection, very soft and pretty, yet architectural. It just doesn't seem as interesting as Ven's and Elena"s. But, I may think differently on seeing the entire collection. So, I am reserving my decision on his.

Nomad, I totally agree about Dimitri's models and their eyebrows. What was he thinking? Trying to make unibrow stylish? That was more distracting than Elena's lips, and in a bad way. I also, still feel that his things were very costumey, they would be fabulous for ice dance.

Ven's collection looked okay on the models, of course, but only a model-type can wear those fabrigami things. I thought Elena's collection was extremely repetitve. I didn't like Gunnar's collection at all.

Glancing at the final collections:

Sonjia--very disappointing, after the excellent work she did in the regular season.
Dmitri--also disappointing, and a real WTF on the eyebrows. Did love the silver dress though.
Elena--reminds me of sci fi movies from the 1970's, where the director/costume designer assumed that everyone in the future will dress in pastels with geometric colorblocking. I hope her runway music was weird computer pinging of some sort. Beeeeep! Booooooop!
Gunnar--some interesting outfits, but overall it seemed a bit patronizing.
Fabio--you know....this isn't my style....but it is a cohesive, well-done collection. I don't want to like it, but somehow it works.
Chris--ehh, OK
Ven--we've seen this done better by Marchesa.
Melissa--I've actually forgotten most of it.

Only a "model type" can wear most of what appears on any runway.

Agree. As to Ven, not only Marchesa, but Versace, Roland Mouret, Ellie Saab, and even Michael Kors.

Good observation, I had the same reaction.

After viewing the collections of final eight, I really hope it was either Chris, Dimitry, and Ven, or Chris, Elena, and Ven who made the top three. I doubt that Gunnar made top three, but surprisingly I really love his collection. It is very cohesive and the styling is wonderful too. He showed a touch of genius. It would be great if he managed to make the top three, but I doubt it based on what's transpired so far in the show.

I'm most disappointed in Sonjia's and Melissa's collections. I think they both had interesting pieces, but both collections were not that cohesive and they had several misses, along with a few hits, altho' Melissa probably had more hits than misses.

I hated Dimitry's styling (makeup) on his models. What was he thinking? It didn't work for me, but I really liked a lot of his looks, tho' it is true re Tom and Lorenzo's assessment about the surprising lack of taste in some of his pieces as contrasted to what he did during the series (but he was criticized a few times for his conservative approach, so he may have tried to go out on a high wire, and his ideas didn't fully come together.

I really like Chris's collection. It was cohesive, well-styled as well as dramatic. I thought Ven's dresses were gorgeous, but again maybe too much of the same (altho' that approach worked for season 2 and season 5 winners of PR). Fabio's collection was cohesive but too pastel, and not enough of a statement -- and I don't really see anything in it that makes him stand out as a designer.

On first viewing, I didn't like Elena's collection. However, I do agree with Tom and Lorenzo that her styling was great and just so much fun for the runway. Plus, I think the judges love Elena (and the fans who voted for their designer favorite love her also, if the online voting is to be believed). Elena's collection was smart and interesting for all the reasons Tom and Lorenzo noted. If she was in the top three, Elena may just have won it all. Altho' Chris may also have an outside chance, as he is certain to have finished in the top three. I wish Gunnar's interesting collection was under consideration too.

My favorite collections are actually Gunnar's and Chris' (and I like many of Dimitry's pieces, but I don't think his collection was that great overall). Some of Melissa's and Sonjia's pieces are interesting, but their collections don't work overall. I just hope Ven does not win the season, tho' his dresses are beautiful. Altho' her personality sucks to a great extent, got to hand it to Elena for pulling out the kind of collection that the judges will probably go for. It does make a statement. Now it just remains, who actually made the final three.

After reading all of these posts, I realized that I hadn't seen all of the photos. For some reason, I only saw the first 4 of each designer. My link would switch to the next designer after 4. But, I went back and did it again and now I can go all of the way through.

I really did not like Gunnar's that much. He had one or two pieces that were interesting. But, most looked like cut and paste appliqué.

Did not care for Sonjias, which did surprise me.

Dimitri was the biggest disappointment. Not that his collection was terrible, but it was not up to what he's done all season.

Chris' and Melissa's were okay, nothing special.

I really liked Ven's but it was all the same. Did not like the white satin dresses. I LOVED the white beaded pants with the black sheer top.

Fabio had a few really pretty pieces and mostly boring pieces.

I really think my favorite was Elena's. I loved the structure, the color blocking, the styling. She is a bitch, but she's good.

If Elena does win, I think we've figured out the formula for Project Runway. Between Elena, Wretchen, Irina, and Jeffrey, the formula is:

Be a total bitch = win Project Runway.

Possibly, but Wretchen was just a bitch, I hated her clothes. Elena, at least, has the talent to back it up.

Most of Gretchen's designs looked like things that might be worn "after the Apocalypse"
Her attitude fit that concept, also.
