The Best of the Best

Make it work…..again.

6 designers left and if we could just get rid of these pesky boys, things would be great! Apparently, the ladies agree, because they were Catty McCattersons this week. You stole my zipper idea! You stole my big sweater idea! Hisssssss and Meow!!!

Speaking of catty, what in Versace’s name was Heidi wearing this week? Hot pink bermuda shorts? hmmm

This challenge the designers have to "re-work" one of their best designs by making a companion piece. In everyone but Logan's case, it's a winning look they have to pair up. Poor Logan's piece is a drab silver dress he made on the first episode.

Much bitching and behind-the-back talking ensues in the workroom. Tim Gunn helps out Carol Hannah, by convincing her not to do pants. (I'm sure he had to really twist her arm on that choice)

There were also a lot of accusations of stealing ideas, and it translated to the runway. Does it really matter if Logan stole the zipper idea from the Bob Mackie challenge? I don't even remember that collar? And the oversized sweater drama? puh-leaze. Onto the designs.....

Poor Christopher. He really thinks he’s so freakin amazing. And why does he talk like he does to the camera? Does he practice in the mirror?

Christopher's design is described best by Meana Irina "why is one dress throwing up another?". Alas, it's true. The top is ok, and then, as you work your way just gets worse and worse. How does one walk in this dress? What woman wants heaviness around the thighs? Ugh. Christopher needs help. He's really lucky to not be auf'd. Again.

Irina “I’m too good for you” made another brown oversized sweater as a companion piece to her brown oversized turtleneck. It did look pretty good. The under-dress was ok, but why did only Nina think it was slutty and cheap looking? Oh…wait……Heidi and Nick Verreos were the judges. :D

This piece does work as a companion to her earlier work. As long as princess keeps her big sweater on, it works.

omg omg, Carol Hannah made a cute dress with pockets. Omg all the judges love pockets on dresses!! What a concept!!!!

(Actually, I have to agree, I have a dress with pockets on the side like that and it’s so fun to have.) I also enjoyed the top part of this dress. However she put together the top is really fun and tailored at the same time. Unfortunately, the bottom part is just so-so, which means it's not the winner. Her piece was the Bob Mackie challenge, and it would have been hard to add the feathers and sequins and not make another costume. Tough look to work with.

Gordana made.....I'm not sure what she made. Nick got in big trouble for calling it a "Polish office worker's" outfit. Yeah, and if I was an office worker in Poland, I would be offended too! This look is so unflattering, drab and it doesn't do anything to compliment her winning look, which was fun and young looking. I've defended many of Gordana's outfits, but this is just going too far.

I'm thinking her, actually I don't know what saved Gordana this week. I've been a supporter of her for a while, but I simply cannot defend this boring look.

Althea was the winner. I really enjoyed her original winning look. Her companion look wasn’t as great, but it clearly was the companion piece, and it was the best out of this weeks' looks. For Irina to say she stole the oversized sweater look....well you be the judge.

Oh Logan, your shiny silver pants couldn’t detract from this week's fugly mess. It was very close between Gordana’s hideousness and this thing Logan created. Logan and Christopher are both super delusional. Logan seems to think that 3 chains, or pink lining, or zippers are edgy to fashion. Logan was also the sole designer that didn't actually have a winning design. This was (I guess) his nicest thing they could have him use to re-work. And even that dress is bo-ring.

Judy Jetson indeed.

Auf Weidersehen Logan. And in Logan's mind, he designs for only "10 percent of the population". The rest of the world, just doesn't "get" his designs. Well color me the majority sweetie. Too bad he had to leave on such a sour note, but his pride was definitely crushed on this show. We have to assume that his shiny silver pants and model-esque looks brought him this close to Bryant Park. (eek, who's sour grapes now?)

How great was it to have Nick Verreos as a judge? I just adore him. He was kicked off too early in Season 2, but he seems to be doing ok in the fashion and entertainment industry. It would have been hilarious if he was on the episode where Nicolas got kicked off for not doing a good enough Greek look. I hope to see Nick on the show again!
