    Bradon, Karen, and Ken were my Bottom 3. Would have kicked out Ken for the camo boob binding or Karen for that Lawrence of Arabia dip dyed mess. Ken needs to shut his mouth, shave off his devil beard and start designing.

    Justin had an interesting idea, but lost his way. And that stripe was just weird.

    Loved Alexandria's jacket. Those pants were odd and the white stripe makeup was stupid. But, Ya looks good in anything they throw on her and she's won before. And watching Ken's reaction made my day. :p Suck it, tiny talentless man.

    I had Alexander (Suede part II) as my winner - if he had done silver paint on blue, it would have been stunning.

    Jeremy's idea was sublime and like Nina, my eye went to the buttons - fabulous detail.

    Liked Dom's colors, but the dress bunched up in the ankles when the model walked. Was distracting.

    TVGuide Channel says that tomorrow's episode has a surprise elimination. The only one I'd be really surprised to see kicked off would be Kate.

    they are really coming down hard on jeremy. bitches please, that is not even the worst thing you saw today,. let alone all season. you would think he held their kids hostage.

    plaid pants shouldnt go past the garanimals stage

    all of these flat shoes arent really mixing with their outfits.

    Ugh. :( Looks like Bradon or Jeremy is getting the boot. Should be Miranda for choosing those hideous shoes and making that hideous outfit.

    im now sure how miranda survives, assuming she does
    the top of braden's is very softer side of sears
    i think alexandria's material looks cheap

    I think Alexandria's outfit looks cheap. Detest those shoes. They probably keep Miranda for the drama potential.

    I know, right? That's why I thought Bradon or Jeremy was going home. Thank God I was wrong.

    Helen's look was very Belle du Jour to me and I loved it.

    I just want Ken to go, other than that, I kind of like this group of designers.

    Alexandria is mildly overrated as far as I'm concerned but not enough to rant about. Karen has no taste at all and should go even before Ken, who has technical skills. Mr. Posen is pretty full of himself, isn't he?

    (I thought Miranda should have been auffed several auffings ago.)

    I liked Miranda's very first look, which didn't fit the challenge rules, but everything else has been dreadful, boring, or both.

    Alexandria has had some very good looks and some that were just okay. Tonight was an example of a just okay look to me.

    Karen, or Joan Cusack as I call her, is very boring but I didn't hate tonight's look, it was just kind of there for me.

    I was expecting to like Zac more than I do. Michael Kors had this way of saying something totally bitchy in a way that came off as funny/harmless where Mr. Posen just seems like an a-hole when I think he probably is just trying to be clever.

    All in all, this is a better season of PR than we've seen in a long time.

    That was definitely long overdue. She should have been auf'ed with Sustainicorn. Then we could be rid of Karen by now. Or Ken. And does anyone know why we're supposed to like Kate? I don't remember her at all from her previous season, and I haven't liked anything she's done on this one. Especially this week's effort. Those shoes would have been showcased better by a knee-length dress/skirt.

    I don't think Ken is that bad. He's just another prissy gay man, and this show has had tons of em.

    I agreed with the top 3 choices. I didn't find any of them great, but with tonight's ugh-fest, they were the top 3.

    I didn't think Miranda's look was the worst, or even bottom 3.

    I think Bradon's was clearly the worst, but with Tim Gunn's save off the table, I don't think there was any way he was getting eliminated.

    Nah. I would actually wear Bradon's top which I thought was interesting. Of course, I'm over 50, which probably underlines the judges' critique, but hey, aren't we allowed to get dressed too? Or do we have to live in sweatpants and fuzzy slippers?

    But I agree they were not going to eliminate him, he's done way too much good work in other challenges. Jeremy's been all over the map but I actually rather liked his look this week. What are you supposed to do with boots like those but show them off with a short skirt?

    This. I find it interesting that even Nina, who should know better, refuses to acknowledge that there are only two markets for high end clothes, the uber rich and the over 45 set. The uber rich aren't watching PR for style cues.

    I'm with you.

    This is the first week that Helen showed any real ability, IMO.
    I don't share the love for Alexandria.
    The judges seem to prefer looks that are only suited to the runway; and would never be worn in "real life".

    i dont know how a bulky sweater added to the "pretty woman" look of those boots. she was all covered up. i actually thought it was interesting how he (jeremy) made the fabric into a type of a sweater.

    I thought Dom, Karen, and Kate should have been bottom three.

    I actually liked Ken's dress this week. I know, shocks me too, I also liked the Chiffon faux sweater. I think the judges are losing their taste. They don't like anything that is actually wearable.

    i agree. if it was one of those non traditional material challenges, dom could have won because i swear her dress was made from quilted paper towels. i dont like karen's at all. like tim said, too matchy matchy, then the jacket was sort of hiding it and made no sense with it. kate's top or the top of the dress if it is one piece is very ill fitting and a little off center.

    I finally got to watch this episode and I do not see how that was shocking at all. Guess I won't be believing the TVGuide Channel anymore.

    I hated the winning look. Thought she looked like Mary Poppins and when she walked down the runway, I thought she was in the bottom. I didn't have a favorite this week, as I did not like many of the looks. Appears that Ken has a temper tantrum next week.
