I was really disappointed with last night's show.  Sure, all of the dresses had flaws.  That being said, I think there was a clear loser, and that should be the end of the discussion.

Having made it through this last challenge, I think there is a good chance that Kenley will win.  The judges clearly love her design aesthetic, and have kept her in the competition.  In a lot of ways I think that she has a lot of talent.  I think a lot of what comes off as attitude is really defensiveness, and I can sympathize, because if I was ever on PR, I would probably end up being the same way...the pressure would totally freak me out.  Of course, this is the reason I would never volunteer to do such a thing, but I am a pretty self-aware person.  Attitude or whatever aside, that dress was not good.

I am not quite sure how Jerell ended up as the winner with a dress that looked like it was going to fall off of his model at any moment.  The idea of it was interesting, and I can see how the layers were kind of petal-like, but it was not finished.

Except for the weird blue fabric panel in the back, I though Leanne's dress looked pretty good.  Managed to look both pretty and comfy at the same time.  Also, I don't care what the judges think, I like her muted color palette.  Not everyone wants to wear crazy patterns and colors all the time.

I liked the color of Korto's dress, but the fabric was problematic.  I didn't think beauty pageant, but it didn't seem as finished as most of her work.

I'd like to say that I would stop watching PR, but I said that two seasons ago, and again last season because I was so disgusted with the outcome, and as soon as the new season started up, I found myself drawn back in.  No willpower, whatsoever.  Smiley

I have to say I got impatient and watched the runway shows of their collections on youtube and was kinda disappointed.
In the past there's at least usually been something in each collection that would catch my interest but this year... I could barely watch it. Of them all I have to say I enjoy Leanne's style the most. I did kinda like Kenley's aesthetic in the beginning but it seems the more she tries to prove herself the more she strays from what attracted me to her work.
They all started so strong it just has me shaking my head asking 'What went wrong?'

Okay, I had to look because I will miss this weeks show.

SPOILERS AHEAD























Leanne
Boring. The same look over, and over and over. The folds in the fabric really were not flattering at all. The colors of fabric were so muted they made the collection even more dull. The last dress was white, and the best of her collection, but it looked like it was ripped in some places on the hem.

Jerrell
Really did not get this at all. Things did not fit the models(bustiers that bounced like mad), the models were bad, the sleeves were too long to the point they were ridiculous, and the fabrics were uninteresting. His last dress looked like balled up toilet paper.

Korto
Was disappointed in the lack of umph in any of her designs. The colors, and fabrics were great, but nothing really stood out.

Kenley
Nothing new. If you saw the season you saw her show. Her last dress was unflattering, unwearable and just plain silly.

Who will win is a crap shoot.

Okay, I am usually very anti Kenley because of her terrible attitude but I must admit I loved that wedding dress.

I am sad that Jerell didn't make it, yet I am happy that we have an all female final three. The fashion world is still full of men and it's nice to see more ladies make it this far.

On the home visits:
- Jerell's family and friends were all so sweet and (If I didn't know any better) I would say Tim Gunn was totally flirting with his sister.
- Korto's daughter was so precious! She looked so shy around Tim and the cameras but she can do a fierce little model walk.
- Leanne and Tim riding a tandem bicycle was precious!
- I did like Kenley's studio layout. Plus her grandma stories and photos were super cute.

DOH!!! Didn't they have an issue with Kenley earlier copying other people, and she claimed she did not read fashion magazines?

So Jerrell is out. After seeing his collection I get that completely.

^^ Indeed. Which is stupid. How are you going to know that your designs are original if you don't know what's going on around  you. She clearly used other designers as inspiration...heavy inspiration.

STUPID.

I hate Kenley. She should have been auf'd like SO LONG ago.

Jarell should be going to fashion week.

Kenley copied that dress down to the head dress thing. WOW.

Plagiarism.

If she wins, I will be so pissed. It will disrupt the balance in my life lol
