    The problem with black is that the TV audience can't see any details, even in hi-def. I remember wondering what Christian Siriano's Fashion Week stuff really looked like. It wasn't until I looked at the Getty stills that I got an idea of what was going on. I'll defer judgement on Chris's stuff until I look at the images. Beatrice wasn't a good fit for the comp, so it's not a surprise she's the first auf.

    Many of the designers seem weird, rather than talented; wanting to show how "cutting edge" they are
    If you're going to be avant-garde, fine.

    However, your ideas need to have some degree of wearability.
    All the creativity in the world doesn't matter, if no one wants to buy what you make.

    This season has contestants that clearly define the two ends of that spectrum. Dev pretty much said "doesn't matter how creative you are if it won't sell". The Japanese guy on the other hand (props to Tom and Lorenzo for coining the nickname "Frokimon").....I suspect he's deliberately trying to be completely wackadoo. No one's wearing that except for the fring-est of Harajuku or Manga types.

    I'm liking the two former soviet union contestants, who I will refer to as Lady Gaga's dressmaker and Professor Snape.

    You are not alone.

    I liked the "sad" gaucho cape and knitwear. The second look appeared the sort of thing that the beloved Olivier (season 9) was given props for.

    I kind of liked the dress under the cape. I would wear it when my husband drags me out to something like a car show followed by dinner at a nicer restaurant (my reward for tolerating car shows). But the trouble with it was that I can buy it at Target. Not going to cut it for a design competition. I think she could easily find a niche designing for department stores though.

    Skakeskin woman has to go. I agreed with Nina's "horrified".

    I think Beatrice deserved another chance.

    I'm not going to get into specifics, but it's certainly frozen over.

    Same here. Snakeskin was awful.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    IMHO, Josh could at least back up his bitchy, annoying, and unnecessary bravado with excellent sewing skills.

    Gunnar's stuff last night looked rather 1/2-assed, sloppy, and didn't reflect his claims of ability.

    I'm sure Long Island Gay will eventually annoy the pooh out of me (the ones I initially like always do!), but he seems to dwell in the realm of reality a bit more than his emaciated archrival.

    Gunnar's already a "legend in his own mind".
    He won't last.

    I thought Gunnar and Chris looked like twins when they were sniping at each other in the sewing room.

    I didn't care if snakeskin or knit lady were auffed, they were both pretty bad.

    Prof. Snape. I loved his comments this episode.

    I was having flashbacks looking at Anya and Wretchen's pics on the wall.

    PR is back!! More of Tim Gunn! Yay!!

    I couldn't get over Gunnar's comment that Chris was so bitchy. Chris was not a problem, he tried to be nice, Gunnar verbally slapped him across the face, for no reason.

    Wanted snake lady to go.

    Love "Snape". He is talented and very entertaining.

    Ven is amazing. His ability to work fabric is brilliant. And he has a wonderful sense of style.

    Kooan is just bizarre. I can't decide if he is really that tacky or he's doing it for fun and then will astonish us with his real talent. Wishful thinking, maybe?

    ...or just another one-trick pony.

    Dreams of grandeur, like Ping?
    I don't get why they cast such people; they are costing those with real ability a chance.
    If it's for the "drama", they shouldn't bother; the truly talented provide enough of that!

    Totally agree, unless this guy has something we haven't seen (maybe?). I would much rather see a balanced competition with all of the competitors chosen for talent, not DRAMA.

    Buffi reminds me of Britney Murphy in Clueless. Something about the way she laughs.

    If Nick and Mondo were responsible for the casting of Kooan or Buffi, UGH!
