Does anybody else feel it's time the show gave at least one week where the designers had much more time to think about the challenge, create their design, shop for the raw goods and then execute their design more fully? Rather than the need to focus on the messy interpersonal drama and meltdowns, maybe they might find they could pull an audience who would really love to see what these creative folks could really do & be ready to be wowed by showstopping looks.

Or how about an episode where designers could go back and tweak or flesh out more fully some of their previous designs? As awesome as Christopher's NYC Rockette costume was I would have liked to see more contrast colors -- either a dark metallic skirt or a midnight blue fabric behind the skyscrapers to make them pop. I'm sure the designers have tons of coulda, woulda, shouldas that would make some of the loser looks incredible with more time and tweaking.

Even the tackiest Dance Company wouldn't have worn that.

And Sonja's costume was not well thought out at all. The feathers would not make it through 1/2 a performance.

One if those 2 should have gone home based on this challenge.

What I couldn't believe was that Ven was only 28yrs old. Wow, he seems older.

Elena's was hideous, but I guess she at least tried to be creative -- Ven's, while pretty, was anything but creative. I guess they realized that if he wasn't doing "rose origami", that that's the best they could get from him. He does look/seem older than his age.

Aw, come on, should be cute. It's so ironic they would do this challenge right when Heidi has a line of baby products coming out.

Obviously Ms. Klum scored high marks in her synergistic marketing class.

As a dance mom, can I tell you how much I HATE costumes with feathers. This was DD15 competiton tap costume this past year. They had to wear it 4 times and I can't tell you how many feathers we lost to molting. The head piece didn't even make it past the 1st competition before we had to gather up molted pieces, just to glue them back together so they would have one.



Vins dress was a 1000 times better than Elena's. We have worn something very similar over the years. I haven't seen anything as hidious as Elena's since I danced back in the 80's. We wouldn't touch that with a ten foot pole.

FYI, Elena is definitely fan favorite b/c she has a Youtube video out, saying that if people vote her fan favorite, she'll donate half the money to the World Wildlife Fund. I don't think she's actually anyone's "favorite."
I'm DREADING this week's episode! Hopefully they have to create a least a coordinating woman's outfit to go with the baby clothes. It's just gotten too contrived and over the top!

Yes! I think they should do this every season around the halfway mark. I'd love to see them have all the time they wanted at Mood.

I think the baby challenge will be fun to watch, but I think it will include a women's dress also. I've spend many hundreds of dollars on newborn and toddler clothing - it is definitely a market that designers shouldn't scoff at.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I think they did a show where they had to design a kid outfit and also a mom one that coordinated with it. I could be wrong though.

I think its really sad that she is doing that, I mean its great that she will donate the money, but if its a cause you feel so strongly about how about coming up with a real fundraiser instead of bribing for votes. I like her even less now and I didn't think that was possible.

I'm glad Ven is gone and please please let it be Elena this week

They all ready do that but you have to be in the top 3(or 4).

How is Elena a fan favorite???
I know, WHAT is up with that? It sure seems like a bribe to me...that she would donate (which is great) but still.

Yes, I don't understand how this is legal under the rules.

And she is SO unpleasant! Although I did laugh quite a bit at Christopher's assessment that they were like Boris and Natasha!

For me Christopher has just rallied and might win it all. Demetrios has always been good. Ven is remarkable and I would wear anything he made. Solange too is very good. The eggplant chicken suit was awful. All in all Michael Kors is always on the money with his thoughts and descriptions.
