I can't stand waiting to see who the final three are. Now I'm thinking Uli, Michael and Jeffery. My money's still on Michael to win it. Yay Michael!!

Laura's dress did look much better in Paris, but still...you could tell without knowing, it was 'her' dress as all her outfits look the same...high waitst and/or plunging neckline.(made for women without any breasts or hips).
I thought Kayne's dress, while a little too glittery for me, was the most 'couture'ish'. He put a lot of work into it and loved it so much, it's just a shame that everyone else didn't like it....and of course didn't hesitate to tell him so.
Michael's dress did look a lot better when the top was pushed down. But I loved the fact that he knew it wasn't that great but that he had to go with it. So many of the designers say their garments are fab when they aren't.
And Vincent...he was a class act when he left...It will be interesting to watch him at the reunion show.
I loved Kayne's dress! I guess they don't like glittery, but oh my goodness how it fit and flowed!
what a relief that Vincent is gone - I'm with you about the "that gets me off" -his departure was overdue!
seems Laura could have made that collar much more dramatic - irregular edge, lace, beads etc. I too appreciated Kayne's dress - loved the asymetry and the monocromatic effects.
I can think of a few other plaid formal dresses - plaid taffeta skirts for bridesmaids at a fall wedding in the late '70s and I played dress up in a blue and white plaid cotton formal (off the shoulder and ruffles) of my mother's that had to have been from the mid-1940's!
thank goodness for PR - it is the only thing keeping me sane since our pool/back yard have been under rehabilitation all summer!!!
my money is on Michael too for the win!
Kayne's dress was a hell of a lot better than the judges and Tim were saying. It was also made better than just about anyone else's. He got a raw deal on this one. Kayne came through.
I like Jeffrey more than most folks, but his dress was a mess. Couture or not, it looked preposterous, pretentious and pasted together. I think what helped him to win the challenge was the model. She WORKED that runway like she built it herself. Because of that, I predicted him to win.
Laura blew it - completely. I think she was hanging on by a thread (so to speak) with her design that looked like a bad prom dress.
Uli really shined this time. If she holds this present course, she may topple the ice queen and make it to the final three. I would not have predicted that a week or so ago. She displayed a complete command of the hand-made nature of Couture. And it was a pretty dress, too!
Michael got an "A" for effort but a "C" on the final exam. He busted his butt and reached pretty high - but perhaps over-reached given the time restraints. If he had a week to pull this off, (or more practice with a needle) I think he would have dazzled the entire city of lights with what that guy could have made. He is a major talent to reckon with. I am NOT sure he will win, however.
Vincent, the "legend in his own mind" (love that comment, Laura), self-deluded, tailor to the naked emperor, was given his past due walking papers.
However, of all the designers on the show, I feel really bad for this guy. He apparently sold his soul to get on, but now that everyone has been shown what little he is capable of, I'm not sure anyone would want to hire him to design a pillow case.
He disproves the old bonmot that if you want something really badly and try your hardest, you can do and be anything in the world you desire. Sorry folks, you sometimes need things like talent, ability and skill. Simply believing in a thing does not make it so.
Best season evar, fur shure.
