Did anyone check out American Beauty Star, after? .... kind of cringe worthy but couldn't not watch it! ;)

Okay, I turned it on. I hope I don't regret it.

It's trying too hard to emulate Project Runway down to the hostess with an accent.

Finally got to watch the episode, life has been busy. I liked the designer that got booted, I don't really like the term Lolita though so I hate that's what those clothes are called. Glad that the twins stuff was pointed out, and I thought it was funny how quick the judges were to demand the drama. I hope that something is done about them soon, though, it's getting ridiculous. I was fine with the winning look, didn't really love or hate anything this week.

I absolutely loved the winning look. As soon as the show ended, they put it up for sale on the JCPenney website. Since I'm watching it a day late, by the time I got to the website, it was sold out in all sizes. And it was only $39.95. Well, it was probably too young for me anyway.

The twins were a team. They had the losing look and rightly so. But, we don't know yet which one went home. The judges split them up and made them do separate looks with the same fabric. But they won't tell us until next week. Claire had her hair in a regular ponytail and no makeup and she looked so much better.

I had an awful time with the feed tonight. No problem with the commercials, just the good stuff.

Watched yesterday's episode. I don't understand how Claire could send that top down the runway and not know it was horrible. Was she designing for two-face? I also feel sorry for her because her sister relys on her so much, she looked exhausted. This was the first week that Brandon did something that I liked, that I might actually wear, so that was nice. Top teams definitely deserved to be there, bottom as well. That ending, ugh, i want to know now! lol

Just watched the challenge between the twins. In a way, I think it was kind of cruel to pit them against each other when they are so very close to each other. The judges abdicated their responsibilities to make a decision and eliminate one of them.

Okay, drama over. Time to focus on the fashion.

Did I say drama over? Boy, did I speak too soon. I don't even remember most of the designs.

I know, what a mess.  One comment, I cannot stand women that gripe to everyone around them about a person but never says anything to that person.  It drives me crazy and I tend to think less of the complainer. 

I have to add that having studied art in college, artists always influence each other.  That's why there are schools of art.  The key is to have your own voice.  And Claire's top was not exactly like Margarita's dress so she needs to get over it

I have to agree. And didn't the judges say that Claire had done a similar top before? I don't know how they are going to resolve this one. Other designers walked off in the past and I seem to recall that one or two of them didn't return.

Finally got to watch, I actually felt bad for the twins after watching that. I guess the best one stayed on though.

Worst kind of drama, or one of the worst kinds. Margarita just needs to get over it, the looks were not identical and like  Tripp said artists are inspired by each other. The fact that Margarita with her griping and whining was able to influence somebody else to act is even more frustrating. Not a fan of Claire, but I hope Margarita gets booted off.

Edit to add more.

I was really liking this season because everyone was being nicer and the designs were really good and then it just slipped back into back stabbing and drama with this episode and i don't like it. Still going to watch, but I hope it gets resolved and we can return to the before.

I think Claire's top started out identical to Margarita's dress, but it evolved into something quite different. Margarita's pleats were at an angle and her's didn't have those cutouts. That being said, Claire's look was nice but not enough to win.

You may not want to look at this but it's one dress from each of the six collections shown at Fashion Week on September 8. None of the designers were identified but I picked out one I thought was Ayani and so did the author of the article.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2017/09/08/project-runway-season-16-finalists-debut-collections-new-york-fashion-week/646875001/

I kind of shuddered at what I saw except for the last one.

Hmmm, my guesses are the last one is Margaritta, wonder if the first one is Kenya. Collection 2 I think is the teacher, I can't remember her name. I agree with the author about collection 3. Collection 4 and 5 I think could be either Brandon or Kentaro.

The last one could be either Margarita or maybe even Michael unless he walked off for good. The first one has a peplum so probably Kenya. I think you're right about the second one being Eva (the teacher). It's sometimes hard to tell the difference between Brandon and Kentaro but I would expect them both to be in the top six.

The more I'm looking at them, I think Brandon could be the second one. He was talking in a clip about a very tight pencil skirt. Now I'm thinking #4 being Eva and #5 being Kentaro

I won't be able to watch tonight's show until tomorrow. Bummer.

So she had a ruler? I didn't realize a ruler was against the rules. Why did they wait so long to whine about it? Margarita and Michael back peddling so hard when they went back. Michael should have gone, after the way he acted and his look, I wish they'd booted him. Was not expecting that to happen with Claire. I hated having to listen to Michael and Margarita talk about how bad they felt. I didn't like Claire, but I felt like they were ganging up on her. Someone should have ratted her out as soon as they saw the tape measure and not waited until $25k was on the line, it made them look petty. I had a hard time looking and listening to them during the rest of the episode after that.
Did not agree with either decision. Did not like this episode. At all.

Apparently, she also pre-measured clothing in the apartment. They aren't even allowed to have pen or paper. There was something off about this whole thing. Reality or not?

I haven't seen the episode yet. I just read an article. They could have edited out the whole drama from last week and made a discreet announcement that Claire had withdrawn from the competition, Batani returned and Brandon won. No one had to be humiliated.

Unless the whole season with the twins was a put up job. The exaggerated way they talked, the lipstick, Shawn's extreme dependence on her sister. Fishy.

It was all done in poor taste and I disliked it.

On another note, I know it doesn't matter with what's going on, but I wonder what's going to happen to Project Runway Allstars. It's a Weinstein Company production and Georgina Chapman is Harvey Weinstein's spouse, though she's filed divorce papers.

I saw a picture of the two of them together but I didn't know what was going on. Isn't Project Runway also a Weinstein Production?

All Stars should have been on long before this.

Her designs are beautiful. I hadn't read about how her company came to be before, she certainly seemed to benefit from his connections. It's also hard to believe she was unaware of what he was doing. I don't plan on boycotting PR All Stars because she's on it but I'm curious to see if she'll continue to be a judge.

Looking forward to All-Stars. Did I miss a season of PR Junior?

Very good unconventional/Lexus challenge. If Ayani keeps this up, she has a very good shot at winning.

I thought that Kentaro's look was worse than Michael's but he is a judges favorite. Sorry to see Michael go but he did get to show at Fashion Week.

We haven't seen a Tim Gunn Save, but I guess it's too late in the competition for that.
