Project Runaway?!

I finally watched the finale of Project Runway. Here are my initial reactions to each of the designers/their collections:

Jillian-I liked her coats, fun sleeves. Neat pants. The helmets were awful!

Rami- 1980s meets draping. Ugh! I hated the blue part! The gowns were good though and left me wondering why the rest was crap.

Christian-His models were the best walkers. They worked the pieces which really did help. I really liked the feathered pieces and the hats.

Go Fug Yourself www.gofugyourself.com is a great website that pokes fun at hideous Hollywood fashion. They wrote a good piece for New York Fashion with their impressions. http://nymag.com/daily/fashion/2008/03/fugs_on_the_project_runway_fin.html

Who didn't know Christian was going to win 5 episodes ago?! I knew it was coming and all I could say was, "Pfffff!" He was the most consistently good of them all and deserved to win. I can't stand his personality though and I have a feeling he will do well for a couple of years, then he'll fade away. He's too young to have staying power I think.

Now comes this awful dead zone until episodes of good shows start up again.
Thoughts?

I'm glad Christian won! I think he's really scared and insecure under all of that show!!!

Anyway, thanks so much for entering the beach towel giveaway!

I'm just glad you didn't post this before I had seen this. My H told me Christian won right at the beginning and I got really mad at him, and then he pretended that he really didn't know and I believed him enough to enjoy the show. And then, of course, Christian did win, (H says he looks like a rooster) and I realized he really had known from seeing him on the morning talk shows.
That said, I liked Christian for about the first time as he entered the finale. His work space/sleep space that was all about his art, and then his sudden, stunning, loss of confidence. I actually thought Rami should win for being more wearable. But, ce la vie.
