Project Runway Finale Part 1 thread. Spoilers inside. →
To my surprise, I've rather warmed to Ice Queen Alexandria over the past weeks. She's uncompromising and knows exactly who she is. She's taken Tim's critiques and ignored them and yet still made it this far. But I agree with the judges that her clothes, although beautifully made and very commercial, were boring.
I am absolutely delighted for Justin. I thought his clothes were fabulous. I loved that brown dress with the 3-D printed belt and the gorgeous soundwave print across the shoulder. And the test-tube dress! Stunning.
I knew Helen was fucked as soon as I saw that Anti-Muse was one of her models, even if her clothes had been any good. Which they weren't. Nothing she put on the runway was (a) properly made (b) correctly fitted or (b) wearable. That blue monstrosity was shockingly bad and it didn't help that the model (not Anti-Muse) had a terrible runway walk. When the models joined the designers on the runway Anti-Muse seemed deliberately to stand in the most un-modelly pose she could muster as revenge, after all these weeks, of never getting anything nice to wear on PR.
Nina was brutal this week. God, that woman can be scary.
I have a horrible feeling Dom will win. Her clothes are fine, but they don't make me want to buy them. But last year I was totally surprised at how much I liked Patricia's collection over Michelle's, even though Michelle totally deserved to win. So I'm prepared to be surprised again.
