The biggest problem with Ken is that he acts as though he's "God's Gift to design"
I really think that it will come down to Bradon, Dom, Kate, and Helen. Here's how I see it happening (I have no spoilers):
8th: Ken quits
Top 3: Bradon, Dom, Kate
I really can't see any others in the top 4.
I think that's right. I am so hoping Helen is not in the final 3, I can't believe she's won three challenges. She's also pretty full of herself.
(That yellow daisy dress is a dead ringer for a dress I wore to a Bar Mitzvah in 1967. I was 10 years old.)
I take it you didn't find Helen's dress very modern.
It looks like something I wore to church back then, also!
the yellow daisy dress is actually the same as the purse my great aunt helen crocheted for me using a margarine tub as the base of the purse. i was about 5.
I want that!
me too! i dont know what happened to them. she made them in every color of the rainbow.
I thought that every dress was shapeless and ugly. The only one I, somewhat, liked was the yellow daisy dress. Hated the fabric, but liked the shape.
I was underwhelmed by most of the looks in this challenge. I was as so many designers gravitated toward plaid. Modern Southern Woman = Plaid?? I never knew!
I kept thinking that Ken might do well since they were showing a kindler and gentler Ken. But after I saw the purple bridesmaid dress I thought he might be toast. The phone call with his mom was when she asked him if was another person sometimes. I think we're going to see that other person next week.
Helen can go anytime, she annoys me.
I guess fashion forward modern southern dresses are shorter in the front and have gobs of material wadded up by your hips.
I wore Ken's original dress to my grad school roommate's wedding. I believe it was 1977.
That was a baffling win. All those seaming details of Bradon's will probably be eliminated in the first production meeting. The dress Belks ends up selling probably won't look much like what came down the runway. And I doubt that it will be plaid.
I think Jeremy was done in by his fabric choices. He probably would have been waved through with a different print and a different colored jacket. And then they could have aufed Alexandria since they're clearly keeping Ken in, no doubt hoping for some epic work room drama.
It looks like a Prom dress from the 60's.
I made a dress in that exact fabric and with a fairly similar silhouette sometime in 1968 or 1969.
Most of the dresses were hideous, and why Alexandria was deemed safe with that mess is beyond me. It looked like she just threw the fabric on the model and held it together with the belt, her original fabric was awful, but that plaid was plain fugly. Jeremy may have made something a little too mature, but at least it was well made and tasteful.
Ken, Helen and Alexandria can get off my screen anytime now.
I love real women challenges. But I think designers have figured out that they had better be nice to their not-size-0 clients.
i love tim's tie
that tiff was very 8th grade at an all girls school
i rarely like the real people challenge. i see real people everyday and am consistently underwhelmed by them. i dont need more on tv
Well fashion is about fantasy. But if you saw real women fight over the Phillip Lim clothes at Target last Sunday....we all want some of the fantasy!
I don't like the real people challenges either. And, I think when they have them, all the women should be of similar body types.
ita, helen did a nice job. but her model was that girl in the movies that takes off her glasses, shakes out her hair and looks 100 times better. i really liked what justin did (the black dress with the signature, i think that is his name). i didnt think, oh she looks nice for her. i thought she really looked nice and in something she will most likely wear.
As soon as I saw Helen's model, I figured she had it in the bag.
I would have sent the entire bottom 3 home and added Dom for that monstrosity she tossed together. Prints and a droopy bosom are NOT good on a woman who's not a stick. She made her look bigger.
Loved Braden's dress. And I loved Justin's too.
Glad the little troll devil beard screecher went home. Wonder if the crew revolved after that face mask meltdown?
And I was thrilled that none of the designers pulled a Ven, but instead were nice to their clients. Even Ken's person loved him, which shocked me.
Kate was lucky to be safe. Her super fan looked like Peter Pan's mother.
lol i was thinking the actress who plays peter pan after menopause
I didn't get Kate's look at all. To me it looked like something she would have made anyway, for a different challenge with a professional model.
I liked Kate's shirt.
I hope Ken's mom is absolutely embarrassed when she watches the reruns of this season. Appalling.
I loved Helen's dress. First time this year I have done so.
Ken 's dress was his usual mess. I don't understand how he even got on the show.
But Alexander should have gone home for that half finished dress. The others get their dresses done in time, so there is no excuse that he didn't.
By the way, I was afraid that Alexandra would put her poopy pants on her model!
Her girl seemed kind of afraid of her, I could see Alexandria convincing her that everyone interviews in a dropped crotch pant.
Well Ken getting the boot without one final mood-disorder blow up at the end of the runway show was rather anti-climatic.
I hate that any challenge with non-models is referred to as "real people". Are the models artificial?
there could be an mc hammer show in branson we dont know about yet
It's interesting that she asked him directly about his two sides and whether or not his bad alter ego had shown up.
Helen's dress was (finally) gorgeous and flattering. Maybe she should stick to non-models?
The judges got it right, I would indeed have sent Ken home but that should have happened about four episodes ago. That dress would not have sold on the remainder rack at marshall's. Meanwhile, I wanted Justin's dress for myself with my own signature doodling down it, what a great concept.
Kate, Helen, Bradon are the final three. I like Dom but the judges don't seem to.
I liked Helen's dress, but thought the shoes were too heavy for it. She should have used a strappy shoe.
That auf seemed pretty choppy - I wonder if something was cut?
I suspect the mom is a bigger drama queen than Ken, so she'll probably view him as the victim.
I thought the Ken/Alexander "showdown" was hilarious! Unlike the women who Ken showed out on, no way was a queen going to allow another queen to bring the drama! I think Ken thought Alexander was simply going to let him get away with his attitude, and was shocked when Alexander returned the favor. Of course, being the drama queen that he is, Ken had to really step it up a notch when that happened (but not surprisingly, his anger was directed not towards Alexander, but to the female PR staff).
I kept thinking Robin Hood myself.
I knew it was coming, but I'm disappointed that Justin's look didn't win. Such a cool design and it looked amazing on her. I'd love that dress.
Not only did Helen benefit from her fan having the biggest transformation with the makeover, but her fan also had a body type that was closer to those of the usual models. Her dress looked good, but she had a huge advantage. Braden did to an extent too.
btw, sleuthers say that Ken was to show at MBFW, but pulled his collection at the last moment. I wonder if Bunim Murray got any backstage footage as they typically don't film the decoys.
