    I love me some Anthony!  (aka Julia Sugarbaker lol)  :grin:

    Merline and Candace should *so* have been eliminated tonight.  Both looks were so unattractive and poorly constructed.  At least Georgina commented that one more bad look from Merline and she's voting her out.

    Loved Ken's and Fabio's looks tonight.

    Yeah, Anthony is funny. I love how he always seems like he is going to be big drama but at the last minute takes a left turn into being super focused and productive.

    I thought Candace's outfit was butt ugly. I didn't get the sequined pants, they didn't seem to fit right, and the top looked unfinished to me. The thing about Merline is that she was always more conceptual and not as detail-oriented sewing-wise. Everyone knows this about her, and yet all they did was talk about it and Candace didn't offer to help or anything, even just to save her own ass. 

    I don't mind that Melissa went home; she was kind of cool and edgy in her first season, but she's not like that at all any more, and now she's just boring. I actually thought Ari's dress was pretty, so maybe I'm slutty too, Georgina, LOL. It's obviously not for everyone, and you wouldn't wear it to the Oscars, but not everyone is a virgin ballerina or a PhD in Art History; some girls just want to look gorgeous and sexy. I could see a young woman at a fancy-but-not-stuffy function, like at a music awards show, or a Victoria's Secret model or someone like that, really rocking that dress. 

    I did really like Fabio and Ken's looks, especially Fabio's- Ken's was cool but more conceptual while at the same time reminded me a lot of Kini's "umbrella dress" from years past, whereas Fabio's did really look innovative and like anyone of any size could wear it. I loved how the skirt was not really a skirt but reminiscint of a skirt. I also love how Fabio dresses himself. And I want Fabio to be my BFF. Come to my house, Fabio, let's hang out.

    Why was Whoopi Goldberg a judge? I don't get that at all!

    I *loved* Kini's umbrella dress.  That's one of my favorite looks of the entire show (all seasons including All Stars).  It was innovative and a work of art.  

    One thing that has struck me about this season is that for the most part, the looks have been just so-so.this season so far.  If these were true all-stars, we would be seeing amazing garments and I feel like most of these are what we'd see in their regular season when they were first starting out.  In my opinion, there hasn't been much progress from anyone except maybe Anthony, Fabio, and Ken.   I will say this though - I loved Edmund & Helen's looks, especially Helen's.  It was sooooo girly and pretty, and I love gowns like that.  I don't even mind that it was in that blush color - I thought it only added to how ethereal it was.  Anthony's comment about what he thought they looked like though - LOL.




    I wasn't into Ari's look or Josh's.  I mean, I'm no prude (not by any means, far from it) but I thought they both showed wayyyyyyy too much skin, especially Ari's.  I mean, you had that strategically placed beading beneath the belly button but it was so skimpy that you could see where the model's thighs touched and I was worried that we'd see a bit of V, then when she turned around you could just about see right through the beading. :astonished:

    I think they're getting guest judges who have something to promote, not necessarily because they have a huge interest or any significant experience with design or fashion.  This is true for most shows, actually (substitute 'design and fashion' with any other trade).  There have been some exceptions though... Michael Costello, Christian Siriano, Sarah Jessica Parker, and a few big name designers that have judged in past seasons.   I want them to bring more previous designers/contestants in as guest judges though.  I'd love to see Austin Scarlett, Malan Breton, and Laura Bennett (although I think she quit design & is into archery now) again.

    Have I mentioned though that I love the pairing of Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman?  They're absolutely my favorite judges.  It doesn't hurt that Georgina co-created Marchesa, which is my favorite gown label.  I just think they're awesome peeps.

    I usually have found Isaac sort of annoying on All-Stars, but this season he's more focused, it seems.

    Yeah, I mean All-Stars is never really the BEST people who have been on the show- I imagine it's just the ones who had time on their schedule to do another show. I think they need to retire Amanda at some point- she's been on way too many of these haha.

    I agree with Edmund and Helen's- I thought they were gorgeous, I'm obsessed with those colors, and they did go together in a more abstract way. I have always been a Helen fan, though. She cracks me up too, the way she looks so tough and sometimes her personality is harsh but she makes these beautiful gowns. 

    The colors actually reminded me of this yarn kit- I'm leading a Crochet-along at my local yarn shop at the moment and they are using gradient kits for the project. One lady picked this color set and I am obsessed with it.

    I agree - not only contestants who had the availability, but I also think they get contestants who have the possibility of creating drama and therefore ratings.  It's so lame though - by definition, an all-star should be just that.  

    And I do also love those colors of yarn, but I always like the idea of a blush pink with a richer color.

    Resurrecting this to say one thing:  how the f*ck is Merline still on the show????????
    Girl's talent is amateur hour and she needed to be eliminated weeks ago!
