But I did love that red leather dress in her collection.

PS - Did anyone notice that Elena won Fan Favorite? How the heck did that happen?!
Really now...it was blood orange!

Did I see that there's going to be a new Project Runway All-Stars starting up?

I was definitely happy Dmitry won. He was the obvious choice after hearing from Tim before the show, comments from guests at the runway show and during the judging. Looking at his biography, he is a graduate of Parsons, won on some other fashion design tv show, and I think was working for Calvin Klein. He already had a lot of experience in the field.

And was it just me or were most of the runway models really unattractive? I felt they all looked awkward on the runway. PR has shown casting the models in the past and the designers always ended up with some really good looking girls. I wasn't impressed with this group's girls.

Absolutely agree -- so much so that I could have written the same.

I expected from the judge's comments & reactions that it was going to go the other way because the winner had been repeatedly the bridesmaid all season & it was baldly stated that the ultimate runner up would need this recognition to get a line produced because it was so conceptual.

It was very refreshing to see they all treated each other decently & attempted to be supportive. I'm not a fan of the survivor-style attitude in every competition out there.

Next week already.

Casanova is one of the competitors. He may be a lovely person, but gives off a creeper vibe somehow.

Even though I was routing for Christopher, I'm happy Dimitri won. His clothes are beautiful, and he deserves it.
Thank Goodness Fabio didn't win, I really thought he was going to. (I don't mean that in a mean way he seems like such a nice guy but his clothes are just ugly!)

YAY Dmitry! Even though he reminds me of Gru from Despicable Me, I LOVED him and his designs.

I'm glad Dimitri won. His clothes were the most fashionable of the bunch. I never liked Fabios clothes and don't get all of the love for what he did. To me it looked like a bunch of fabric just thrown on the models. Christopher was his own worst enemy at the end I thing the pressure got to him. Can't wait for the all star show starting next week.

Dimitry was my favorite from the beginning. Now that I think about it, this may be the first time my favorite won!

I won't be watching All Stars. I LOATHE and DESPISE Josh with the fire of a thousand suns and you couldn't pay, threaten, or force me to watch anything with his smarmy face and smug attitude. Yes, I have feeeelings about that dbag.

I'm looking forward to the AllStars as I enjoy Kayne, Suede, Peach, and Ule. However, I'm not looking forward to Ivy, she was an over confident B during her season. I don't know the season 9 people, didn't bother to watch.

I just got around to watching the finale: I agree with most other posters-I liked Christopher the whole way through but he just crumpled at the end. I do think his collection was good but he couldn't put anything together and just crumpled. He even looked physically sick in the last judging scene! He seemed to be the youngest-guess he just needed a little more time to 'grow'.

OMG-Why do they get guest judges for the finale?? When Jennifer Hudson said that Dimitri didn't need the win because he could sell his clothes without the backing of the show I almost choked the tv!! Shut it!! You don't know that he was good through the whole season and Fabio just made his collection a whole lot better in the last 2 days!

Melissa didn't stand a chance. Finally Nina said what I've been thinking the whole time-her stuff looked like everything else out there. It was nice, it looked polished-it just looked like everything else!

Oh, and I'll probably be watching All Stars but I do not like a lot of them that are coming back.

How interesting that an AI cast-off would make a comment like that since surveys show that AI voters have a tendency to vote for contestants who "need the win" rather than the most talented. How special that she's carrying that nonsensical attitude onto another show and trying to award the crown to the lesser talent.

That kind of attitude really burns me. The crown should go to the person who is the best, not the neediest. These shows aren't Queen for a Day.

I love Dimitry (all his fabulous one-liners) but once I saw the final collections I was really pulling for Fabio to win. IMO, it was gorgeous and totally original. I loved it.

Re: All-Stars, it is so so mean of Bravo to cast Andre in a show without Tim Gunn or Santino.
