    They should have all gone home!

    ESPECIALLY Alyssa Mylano. Come back, Angela Lindvahl, all is forgiven!

    Not too different. They were able to put a zipper in the front like Seth Aaron originally wanted, albeit black, not silver.

    They did a good job of following Seth Aaron's design.
    I wonder how it will sell?

    I thought the pop of colour really made that dress. It looks so sad now.

    At least, they didn't remove the "pop of color", entirely.

    I noticed that too. A Judith Light reference on PR.

    I actually think Alyssa is likeable. Just not in this role.

    The most unfortunate thing is her (or the show's) stylist keeps putting her in outfits that make her look even more petite than she is. On a fashion show of all places.

    I mean she's no Heidi Klum, but I totally had a crush on her growing up and she's still pretty.

    I guess it was supposed to be a secret...but Alyssa spilled the beans when we chatted.

    Anyway, it's apparently a collection inspired by your country of origin, which made me think that Irina made the finale ... but I guess they have Elena and her cookie-cutter "Star Trek" dresses.

    Hope Korto wins...she's always a bridesmaid.

    That theme for the finale is just perfect for Momolu! I hope she wins too.

    I really don't get it. Every week, when she walks out onto the runway, I laugh. I mean her styling is so bad, it looks like it's done on purpose.

    What the heck? Aside from Korto, Elena, and Irina, wasn't everyone else born in the US? And unless Seth-Aaron is a second-generation American (and can draw from parents' country of origin), he can just do whatever the hell he wants. Weird, and not great planning - what would they have done if there had been no reasonable way of avoiding an all-US finale?

    And, come to think of it, what if your aesthetic as a designer doesn't really reference your "origins?" You have to completely rethink who you are as a designer for the "six days to make six looks" (or whatever ridiculous timeframe they're given) final mini-collection?

    You are right. As much as I love Momolu, this theme is basically hand-picked for her as her designs are influenced by her ethnic origins. Which isn't fair to the other contestants. Slivnyak isn't American but her design aesthetic is futuristic.

    I just want to reiterate that's how the theme was explained to me by Alyssa, so there might be some other components.

    I'm assuming they had to book the U.N. well in advance, am I'm sure it wasn't "rigged" for non-natives. I guess we'll see how it plays out.

    Well, I guess what she told me was somewhat accurate.

    From an article posted yesterday the U.N. site:

    "The United Nations is in fashion this winter. Fashionistas descended on the world body’s iconic New York Headquarters recently for the filming of the season finale of 'Project Runway All Stars,' – which airs tonight on Lifetime – where three finalists showcase original clothing lines inspired by their family heritages."

    there is absolutely no way seth aaron can win this, regardless of what he makes.
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I didn't like it at all, and I usually love everything he does. Also hate the Ukranian one.

    So Korto for the win?

    lol, what do i know?

    i think his was better than the other two. bless georgina for pointing out that a lot of korto's was a mess.

    more importantly - somewhere snooki is trying to get alyssa's outfit, someone in the wardrobe dept really hates her

    Most of the decisions made no sense, so there's no surprise of the final decision.

    I wish they'd have had more than 4 days to make a 6 piece collection. Korto had three really great looks and three that were absolute afterthoughts it seemed and I agreed that she should rethink her tailored looks. She doesn't do anything to transform them from their Liberian roots and make them look contemporary. Her three great looks were perfect for the QVC customer though, so I was kind of expecting it to go her way and was very surprised when it didn't.

    Seth Aaron is the only one who put forward 6 distinct looks that showcased variety but also had a laser beam POV which is the mark of a mature designer. My guess is that the line the he designs for QVC will look nothing like what he designed on the show. He's gonna have to simplify quite a bit I think or maybe focus on accessories.

    Elena's collection was super cool and modern but a tough sell on QVC. Not a practical piece in the entire collection from either a manufacturing standpoint or a wear-ability one, with the exception of the scarf dress which was super cute. Glad Victor told her to get a grip and we were spared a full melt down.
