    I figured Suede would be on the bottom but preferred Ivy's design over Emilio's.

    As did I.
    I thought that Emilio's jacket looked "clunky".

    I felt Ivy's was too similar to what she made in prior challenges, with a slight variation on the jacket. I've also never been a fan of short opaque skirt with longer transparent skirt, but that's just me.

    I loved Emilio's, which is the first time I think I've ever said that. I don't remember his odd lisp from his season. What's up with that?

    I also really liked Kayne's, and was quite annoyed when they called him with the other five, because I knew who would be top and bottom.

    I would have had Casanove in top three over Anthony Ryan's little striped dress. Casa's wasn't perfect, but it was so much more interesting than AR's, both in terms of fabric (painting and use) and vision. It was much more "wearable art" than the other.

    Reuven can’t say Reuven is displeased about Suede’s departure.

    I really did like his (except the top), and did not get the dislike. It was a lot less chopped off than that one that stopped at the knee. And the vapors over "you're adding WIDTH!" Really? Where? Last season (IOW, like four or five weeks ago), didn't the normal judges go on about how daring someone (Christopher's?) avant-garde look was because he padded the model's hips to give her an hourglass shape? I mean, OMG, ONOES! THEY TOOK A SIZE 00 MODEL AND MADE HER LOOK LIKE SHE MIGHT POSSIBLY HAVE ADULT FEMALE SECONDARY SEXUAL CHARACTERISTICS! It's not like they were making her look huge or like these were even intended for sale to "normal" sizes.

    I thought it was nearly as bad as Seude's, and significantly worse than Laura's.

    I love Laura Kathleen, so she can do no wrong in my eyes (normally). I may just have lingering love for her decoy collection (which to me was the best ever to not make broadcast). I wasn't a fan of her outfit last night, but others were worse.I would have put Josh in the bottom 3

    Kayne should have gone home for that mermaid graffiti disaster. Ivy tossed some words onto crap sewn onto chiffon and was in the top 3? I don't get these judges. And I totally have no clue who hillbilly 1 & 2 'guest' judges were. WTH were they wearing?

    I still don't know who they were/are.
    After seeing them, I doubt that their designs would be of interest.

    They looked like the Red Green Show had a trunk sale (except on Red Green, they managed to be reasonably color-coordinated.)

    Maybe they were modeling the Emmet Kelly collection?

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Well this All-Star season doesn't seem to hold enough razzle-dazzle to maintain our interest, but there are two weeks of shows (Thanksgiving week skipped), we haven't discussed.

    I enjoyed Anthony Ryan's fan picture-inspired dress that won the week before Thanksgiving (his prize was a feature in USA Today). Emilio had a close second that week with his impractical but cool yellow and white fluffy puff of a dress. Laura Kathleen did a very good job with her water-inspired print ensemble.

    I felt sorry for Althea being before the judges that week for the first time in the bottom three -- her concept was interesting but the execution re the drop-crotch pants really suffered. Also, I was aghast at Joshua's strange but colorful mess of an outfit. He was lucky that the judges had grown so seriously tired of Andrae's shtick (ironically Andrae was eliminated for a similar picture-inspired challenge in which he had excelled during his original season). BTW, was that sixteen-year-old guest judge actually 16-years-old??!!

    In general, I feel sorry for those designers who get called safe so often and therefore don't have the opportunity to get feedback from the judges (especially Joshua and Althea who have had some good outfits called safe, but then have gotten nailed in the bottom three for unfortunate missteps).

    Last night's broadcast again was overall boring in the way they put it together. I absolutely hate the clueless quick-cutting during the runway shows which makes it impossible to enjoy viewing and actually getting to see a good look at all the outfits. Have to go to the website for a better look (but maybe that's their intent re the crazy cutting and special effects during the show). The androgyny/ avant-garde challenge was strange, but I think the judges' pick for the win was correct -- Emilio hit a slam dunk. Both of his models looked very hot as well as androgynous as they came down the runway, and they also could have worn each other's outfits. The color, the fabric, and the avant-garde edginess really suited the challenge.

    There were some good efforts last night, even among those called safe. I had hoped that Laura Kathleen would be auf'ed for her awful "cut-out" messes -- she's had a lot of poor efforts (despite a good outfit in the previous week). I'm kinda fed up with her clueless personality and her bambi-like eyes. I like Kayne a lot (despite his tendency to constantly "jump the shark" and do too much, often in a tasteless fashion). Still his outfits last night, while loud, were better than Laura Kathleen's. Kayne mainly made his worst mistake with the clash of yellow on the female model.

    In the new PR poll thread for the final three, every PR prognosticator seems to be on the same page so far, unsurprisingly. Right from the beginning Uli, Emilio and Anthony Ryan were obviously the best All-Star designers this season, and even they knew who their top competition would be.

    : for Kayne. At least he makes for good TV. Plus I thought Laura and Casanova's outfits were far worse.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    ^^ Absolutely right. Kayne has even had some decent efforts that might have been called safe that the judges disliked. I agree re Casanova and Laura K should have been in the bottom two (Casanova's outfits did not come close to being androgynous or avant-garde, just costumey). I think Casanova got by because he is so well-liked by everyone.

    Hopefully, Laura K will be auf'ed next week. But again, the majority of all the episodes this season are boring . The only scandalous "bit of business" the producers seemed able to fake-up was Kayne talking conspiratorially to Ivy in the lunch room about Laura K! And now that Kayne is gone, the Ivy/ Laura K b***h-fest is zzzzzzzz...

    I'm mainly interested in seeing the runway segments at the end, but then they don't provide a good look at all the outfits. The editing is so horrendous and schizophrenic.

    ita,if kayne had sent her down the runway without a blouse, would it still have lost? i thought casanova's looked like cocktail servers at an oscar party in a cheap casino.

    There's something about Kayne's taste level that didn't equal his construction skills.

    I suspect you may need to be androgynous to really know how to portray it.
    That said, I liked what Emilio did.
    I haven't always been impressed by his designs.

    ^^ True re Kayne, but I still find Kayne loveable, and I thought Laura Kathleen's outfits were worse than Kayne's last night.

    One of the more memorable moments in PR episode history has to be during Season 3 when Mychael Knight gave Kayne tips on how to walk the runway (that challenge involved the designers making outfits for themselves and walking the runway in them). They should use that particular challenge again!

    Can't believe Casanova wasn't sent home. If the designer doesn't adhere to the challenge, why keep him/her?

    Emilio is showing that he is one of the best designers PR ever had. He simply gets it.

    I actually thought Althea should have been in the top-3. I thought her designs were both androgynous and avant-garde.

    Totally agree with the criticisms of the runway editing. I was like "WTF?????"
