    Emilio's is not the hideous mess I was anticipating, but good Lord, it's not good, either.

    I liked Anthony's collection a great deal, though. :)

    I think that would go to Uli!

    I had to laugh at Brandise referring to Emilio's "E So-so" fabric during MOTR. Emilio has not been given the humble edit so I think that is what puts people off. I really agree with Lorena though that Emilio did a great job of satisfying the parameters of each challenge (except the hardware one), but we didn't really have a vision of his point of view for what he'd do with his own line. That is similar to what happened with Michael Knight. With Mila and Seth Aaron, we had a crystal clear idea of their point of view by the end of the challenges. Anyway, I did really like Emilio's dresses so I hope his collection looks good moving on the runway.

    In my mind, I've cast Emilio as Laura (clothes most 30+ women would want), Mila as Uli (similar fabrics and shapes throughout the show), Seth Aaron as Jeffrey (more modern, but less wearable). I'll be interested to see what time and a job change has done to Nina. IIRC, she voted for Jeffrey in Season 3.

    Tim's blogs, both on the Lifetime site and the video one on his FB page, indicate that Emilio's arrogance is not due to editing. In fact, he basically says that Emilio's worst behavior/bragging has been edited out so that he looks less arrogant than he actually has been.

    I don't think he has a coherent point of view, either. He did do well on so many challenges. But if you lined everything he made prior to the collection up...there's nothing there to tell us what his identity as a designer is. Mila and Seth Aaron, on the other hand, were consistent in putting their own mark on the challenges.

    As a 30+ woman who knows many many 30+ women....just, NO. Not in the least bit. Not at all.

    Okay, so I have to admit Seth Aaron's intro was WTF (because nothing says high-fashion to me like the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany....) But I saw two pieces where I went "Okay, want that NOW." (Third to last and second to last.)

    And ANTM fans, did I see Noted Fashion Photographer (tm) Nigel in the audience?

    OMG Anthony in the audience bopping along to Mila's music....I <3 him.

    I would just like to say that I think you can buy most of Emilio's collection right now at Kohl's.

    I could see buying some of Mila's, and at least three of Seth Aaron's (who I think should win.)

    I kind of liked Emilio's last gown, but I have seen it before. Many many many times. on Project Runway. Otherwise...was no one else getting a Church Lady vibe from the colors and prints? Also, WTH was going on with that dress or skirt with the pockets over the crotch? And how he hadn her walk it? HUH?

    Some of the nicer pieces are at Dillard's. I just kept thinking "ooh, look, it's E Sosa for Dillard's on sale now..." Nice enough but not high fashion.

    I'd be curious to see what these three designers could do with male fashion and male models.

    Why do we not get at least ONE challenge with male models and male clothes? (Not other designers or something gimmicked like that.) And these three probably would have done...at least something interesting. They all can do structured and Seth Aaron and Mila seem to love the patent leather which...hee. I'd enjoy that.

    I agree, I'd love to see Seth Aaron do a men's wear collection. I think it'd be really hot.

    Faith Hill is such an odd choice as a celebrity judge. Not just because I don't see her as a fashion force (for good or evil. Just there.). And she doesn't have the personality; I can't see her being critical or snarky. She seemed to genuinely enjoy the show, but there's a difference between enjoying and critiquing.

    They've done men's fashion before on the show. It was a disaster.

    YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Absolutely the right decision. As kinda meh as some of this season was, Seth Aaron's collection truly did knock my socks off. If I had the figure or went to high end places or had lots of money and time to put together those looks, I'd totally wear them.

    Seriously, that was one of my favorite collections ever. And Seth Aaron is so adorable. He's what Jeffery wishes he was.

    Please tell me this season was better than season six which NZ is showing at the moment. My god its awful. Compared to previous seasons there is a clear lack of talent.

    Seth Aaaron had my favorite collection but Emilio's final dress was :swoon: worthy! I am thrilled with the winner because it was my overall favorite collection and he is a LOT nicer than Emilio who came across as a complete tool. I like how he immediately jumped from thinking no one could or should beat him to "you don't need the crown to be King" comment. Goes to show how big his ego is, I don't think he even thinks he lost...

    Not at first, but it's much better. I think this season had too many designers. Once it gets down to the final ten, it gets much better.

    I don't need to see anymore Ping. Ever. But her hat is very cute.

    Let me guess - you've got the Irina season going? :scream:

    So - I'm thrilled Seth Aaron won. Glad the top 3 this season were all :kickass: and we had a real competition.

    But, I thought esosa's collection was getting picked. Guess once he got the 'I'm a bitchy designer who's always right' edit, that we knew he'd be second?

    Mila - well, she redeemed herself in the last show. Now she can go back to her piano key fetish and have an awesome life with her B&W :dog: and her cute bf. :lol:

    Reunion show - they're still bringing the :drama: Glad esosa got called out on dumping Holly after she saved his arse when he made that bikini mess. Surprised we didn't hear more from Brandise or Mila.

    Maya's real reason for leaving is more fleshed out than we heard on the show. I really expected them to trot out esosa's comment about quitters.

    Ping is still odd, but her stuff off the show is very whimsical. She's not a clothing designer.

    Jesse is still :EVILLE: with stupid hair and I like Jay less after his comments about Cieri. :lynch:

    He is a dick, and out of line. But much as I love Carrie's look, I can't feel too bad for her. She's made some REALLY bitchy comments about not just Jay, but other designers and her fellow models, so if once she gets an uber-bitchy personal attack maybe it will make her think twice about what she says to others in the future.

    Though it did sound like Jay's comment totally brought down the show. I can just see the producers saying, well, that's it folks. G'night. So much for the hour special. :rofl:
    I'll bet the designers hate each other more now than they did.

    So happy for Seth Aaron :cheer2:


    I am just :confused:at the reunion show. Kinda horrified at the behavior displayed :eek:

    Makes you wonder of people ever think about how what they say will reflect on them in the future. Hello! You are on TV immortalized forever making catty and petty comments. Does not bode well for future employment I would think.

    I can kinda see why Mila hated Jay so much now. What an immature little shit. Cerri looked like she'd been sucker-punched (and she kinda was).

    There were elements of each of the collections that I really liked and elements of each that I hated. That funky patent leather corset thing with the red belt in Seth Aaron's collection was hideous but I loved the last purple dress and the same flowy dress that Nina loved. Emilio is an ass, but that blue coat is amazing. Most of it was just far too basic. As much as people say they want to see designers putting up clothes that real women can wear, Mila is getting very little kudos for doing just that. Her collection was incredibly wearable by women young and old and you wouldn't have to be a toothpick to look good in them. My favorite look was the one Brandise wore and I also loved the purple sweater and white top combo but I hated that boxy tunic that Faith Hill claimed to be her favorite. WTF?

    I'm happy with Seth Aaron as the winner because he brought a little more drama to the runway, but I disagreed with Emilio being a second place finisher. I thought Mila's collection was MUCH more interesting and even more commercial.

    It wasn't that good. Too short to get in depth on anything.

    They played different clips, some of people slamming others, then there were long annoying apology exchanges. Ping cried about nothing (something to do with the Jesse thing) and Nina and Tim told her that she needs to channel her emotions into creativity (in other words, stop crying at the drop of a hat!) so she can succeed as a designer. Emilio whined that he didn't understand why he didn't win if his collection was good, how could the judges like it and yet not let him win (they liked them all...so stfu, Emilio). Nina told him it was more a line than a collection. He said he accepted that, but looked pissed off still.

    Nastiest thing said was between Jay and Carri. They showed her saying earlier that his designs only had L.A. or Miami appeal. He then said that he will never use "models with bad teeth and thick legs". The whole room went into awkward silence mode. Someone told him then that she was commenting on his style and he said that is his style--L.A--then I think Anthony prodded him to apologize to Carri. So he did a bit half-heartedly.

    Maya attempted to explain her whole leaving thing again. Still vague to me. That she thinks she's not ready because she's too young and that she wants to get to Fashion Week someday "on her own terms".

    Nothing very interesting.

    Between the comment about how Mila was only chosen over him because she has a vagina, and the comments about Cerri, and the fact that he designs for the body of a 12 year old boy, it's pretty evident that Jay really does not like women.

    Which makes him different from half the guys and a good chunk of the women in fashion....how? (Look at how many of the female designers on this or Bravo's knockoff attempts have meltdowns when asked to design for a woman who isn't 5'10" and size two.)

    Not that there aren't exceptions. Anthony springs to mind, and Seth Aaron's collection is in fact I think pretty female-friendly. I couldn't wear the SIZE the model is wearing, but I could wear a lot of those shapes. Even Esosa's line is in most cases doable by more than stick figures. (Ironically his two most bland and off-the-rack dresses aren't. If you have hips, thighs or a butt, don't even bother with the plain red or plain blue, or that gawdawful miniskirt thingie.) And Mila had some CUTE stuff in there--I love the mid-60s vibe and some of her dresses have just the right retro touch without being costumes. Jay's stuff....you said it, 12-year-old boy. EMACIATED twelve-year-old boy.

    Glad for the result.

    It will be interesting to see how Seth Aaron transforms his "fashion show" concepts, which I respect and enjoy, into a marketable line.
    I think that he can become a force in the industry.
    He has an established POV, ideas/designs at the ready; and the will/skill to execute them.

    Michael Kors seemed to envy his daring and ability. That's a "win" in itself.

    :cheer2: Seth Aaron - Winner! So deserved. SA's runway was outstanding, much more elegant in motion than in the spoiler pics. (Thank goodness the awesomeness of 9 other pieces overcame that purple Barney-meets-Jetsons final garment!) Saw the win coming from a mile away, esp. after reading Tim's comment last week that "one collection stood out far above the others" ... something he'd never say about Emilio's. Found myself teary eyed :wuzrobbed during SA's candid, right after the show (e.g. "my kids are proud of their father").

    :cheer2: No more Anthony on my TV screen! Younger and/or straight folks may think that Miss Sugarbaker was the wittiest thing to grace your TV. But we gay men have heard EVERY SINGLE ONE of his PR lines a hundred times in conversation. Tired stuff. Ain't nothin' original about Anthony. Certainly not his OTT bitchiness and passive aggressiveness ... he's full of resentment and thinks he disguises it perfectly with that big smile and southern drawl. E Television, etal, I beg of you: Don't give this queen a recurring job on TV.

    :wall: Ping. Still crying, still :drama:, still Ping. She's one of the most neurotic folks I've ever seen on TV. And ... she "forgot" that she was on Project Runway? M-kay, methinks she protests too much. All of that said, I have to admit that I still cannot resist liking her. Such is Ping! :lol:

    :) Jonathan still came across as a sweetheart. Glad that he was able to apologize to Cerri on screen (even though it's obvious they were already pals again, as she walked for him in his decoy Bryant show).

    :cool: Brandise is borderline homely looking off the runway, but she was the best model of the 30 we saw in the finale. Perfect "everything" for the design and theme of Mila's collection. Her personality is love-it-or-hate-it .. I love it. She'd be great to have a dinner with.

    :rolleyes: Jay. Evil little misogynist ... his warts n' all certainly showed themselves during Finale Pts I and II. Bitch boy.

    Seth Aaron really did put on a show. It was clearly his point of view, but he stretched himself too. Deserved win (even if I wouldn't wear them). Adorable personality. (And how sweet were Kristina/Valeria too in the recap show).

    Emilio's looked much prettier in motion than in the still shots, but it wasn't fashion forward - it was great basic wearable pieces in stand out colors - nice, but not knock outs. Except the last dress -- that was gorgeous.

    Mila's was wearable but totally one note. I'd wear the coats in a heartbeat.
