Ok, let’s talk about this episode. (Warning spoilers ahead!)
We knew who won before this episode ran because Heidi wore the winning dress last weekend to the Creative Arts Emmy.

Congrats Sean, apparently Heidi is having a fringe moment right now. I do think this was an interesting dress but does it really do that much for Heidi? I see a little bit of a muppet there.Though Heidi did have fun with it on the red carpet and it was photographed a lot.

Poor Kini, second week a bridesmaid. His dress was well made, but could have been a bit more interesting. I didn’t love Amanda’s look, the beading looked heavy like it was pulling the bodice down and the lines were not straight. I would have loved to see see fäde’s dress on Heidi, the shape was interesting and he worked the pattern in the fabric so well.

I was happy to see Mitchell go, his taste level was never the level it needed to be for the show. He really had no idea how to make a classy red carpet gown. I’m not sure Kristine deserved to go too, her dressed was finished unlike Korina’s. Poor Korina, her first look was at least interesting in my eyes, Heidi just really threw her for a loop. It sort of felt like they told Heidi to do that with a few people since Tim stressed the importance of choosing the right fabric at Mood.

All and all, I was a little bored by this episode, but at least we weren’t designing for Heidi’s workout wear line!

    • It’s not exactly a surprise that there’ll be a red carpet challenge or a dress-Heidi challenge, so I was surprised that so many of the designers seemed totally unprepared for it. Heidi can be mean for the sake of it, but I actually felt like a lot of her criticisms this week were well-deserved. I didn’t think that the second trip to Mood did anyone a lot of favours, except Sandhya who totally played that game to her advantage. I didn’t really understand the griping about that – they were told they could ask for each other’s money and yet none of the others bothered? That’s their fault, not Sandhya’s.

      I would have put Fade’s in the top 3 over Amanda, but at least they didn’t give Amanda the win. Kini’s was a great dress and more typically Heidi than Sean’s, but I was glad Sean won. It was such a fun dress and you could see everyone smiling as soon as they saw it. Plus it was more distinctive than Kini’s – it grabbed the photographers’ attention. So it was a good choice for the win.

      I would have sent home Mitchell and Korina. I have no idea how Korina survived that challenge. Even if her dress had been impeccably made, the fabric and the design were ugly. That was not emerald green! At least Kristine’s dress had some interest to it and might have been good if she’d executed it well.

      Anyway, I am excited to get started on this challenge. I have two ideas but I’m not sure which one Heidi will prefer…

      • You are right and who comes to this show never having sewn a gown! I also agree that Sandhya played that twist smart and saved herself. Someone really needs to show Korina what emerald green is because she has no idea!
