What Do You Think of Last Night's Project Runway?

Fresh from last week’s whimsical candy challenge, the remaining nine designers were faced with a more daunting task: designing prom dresses for a group of high school girls — who know exactly what they want for their big night — while staying true to themselves as designers. And as any Project Runway-er knows, the hardest challenges are when you’ve got to please more than just yourself. Check out all of the highlights and lowlights on our TV blog by clicking here. And come back to tell us: Which pairing do you think was the worst? The best? And do you think Kevin deserved to be auf’d?

Kevin definitely didn’t deserve to go! Christian (even though I love him too) had been in the bottom two twice before. Kevin hadn’t – in fact, he’d usually been one of the better designers each week. I just think that the judges should have sent Christian home instead (or Ricky – he just isn’t getting any better from week to week).

I can’t believe they voted Kevin off instead of Ricky- Kevin’s dress may not have been great, but his overall performance has been far superior to Ricky. While the Klum and her voting panel don’t have to deal with his weekly bleary-eyed confessionals, I’d expect them to realize his creations are a constant figure in the group of sub-par designs and at some point to recognize that his level of talent is questionable.

I loved Sweet P’s dress!!! it was so glamorous, maybe too much…but it was hot! I didn’t really care for Victoria’s dress it looks more homecoming than prom. But I also don’t really care for her, so maybe that had something to do with it.

I also don’t care much about Victoria’s dress. The color is nice but it is shapeless. I like Sweet P and Chris dresses the best. I also think Ricky should be voted off. His dress is plain and shapeless.

I agree with all of the above…1. don’t like victoria or the dress 2. Ricky needs to go, he is the weakest person on the show, but I am happy that Christian is still on

What the hell! Kevin should not have been voted off , he has been consistent. I’m sorry, but Ricky has not been doing that well, and his dress wasn’t all that great. Why does he keep on getting saved? Sweet Pea’s dress should have won, it was definitely perfect. I don’t feel Victorya’s dress was that challenging.

Chris totally should’ve won last night’s challenge. I hate Victoria’s dress – since when are fake plastic rhinestones stylish?? On top of that, the neckline is ugly. I thought Kevin’s dress was bad but considering his other designs have not been, I thought he should’ve stayed. Ricky should have gone home.

I was so shocked to see that Victoria won! Her dress is not at all flattering on the model. It almost looks like a maternity dress. And Kevin definitely shouldn’t have been voted off. His dress was not very good but he has been way better than Ricky overall. And it’s very annoying to have to see Ricky cry every week. Christian’s dress was okay; i felt bad for him because of his demanding and outspoken client. But Sweet P should’ve won that challenge.

What an episode-the last finished first and the fist (like Rami) went to the bottom. Not to mention that Christian-I love his tacky comments-was about to be voted off. I think Victoria wouldn’t have won if it wasn’t for Christian who told her how to change the dress.But the style of her dress was very youthful and suitable for the prom, Sweet P’s dress was gorgeous but maybe too glamorous for a young girl. Kevin should have stayed, Ricky’s dress was the worst-the choice of color was awful and completely washed out the poor girl(she was so fair skinned).
The dress that I liked the most though was Chrises.

Jen on

Kevin was a great competitor, but that dress was the pits. The girl didn’t even look happy! All of the other young ladies looked like there had been serious effort put into their designs. A trampy Marilyn has never been the way to go.

Loved Sweet Pea’s dress! I wore a long red sequined dress to my prom in 94! Looking back it was a little “Vanna White” but my date kept saying I was hot. My fav part of runway was the old prom photos!!
What was everyone else’s prom dress from the past??

I’m so disappointed that Kevin was sent home — he’s so talented, and week after week his work seemed to be overlooked. I knew they weren’t going to send Christian home this early bc he’s too much of a personality. Ricky’s sentimental clips were moving at first, but it’s getting a bit old. That said, I think the final 3 will be Christian, Ramy & Victoria (tho I’m not a fan of her’s)

Gigi on

I’m still in disbelief that Victoria’s dress won!? It looked like she attacked that unflattering neck line with a bedazzler. When she was left on the runway, I honestly thought she was in the bottom. Kevin’s dress looked unfinished to me. I saw some white fabric under the bust line that gave the illusion that the dress was falling apart at the seams!!

I thought that it was eh….
Ricky should have gone home, definitely….Nina was soooo annoying with her “isn’t it too sophisticated? She looks to mature.” Um, wtf? Not everyone goes to prom with hot pink, sparkly, teeny bopper garbage. Both of my prom dresses were elegant and so pretty, I would wear them now to an event, 6 years later.

Most of the dresses looked like mess you could have gotten off the rack somewhere, not a designer one of a kind. I would have been SORELY disappointed with all of them. Nothing custom about them

Kevin didn’t deserve to go at all. His designs were consistently good and he was in the top three several times. Ricky or Christian should have gone but they make good tv so they stayed. It has been the same for all the Project Runway sessions. Talented designers get eliminated while so-so or bad designers stay as long as they are drama worthy.

Hello? Sweet P’s dress was not too glamorous for a prom. Has anyone seen what the kids area wearing these days? I have nieces who would have loved to wear that dress! The more glamorous the better! I hated Victoria dress. Hate the bubbled bottom – Hate the cut on her too. Christian’s dress was horrific, but so was his model. Chris should not have been voted off. He’s been consistent the whole time & his designs in my opinion would appeal to a lot more people than some of the other designers.

I hated Victoria’s dress. The bubbled bottom? ICK! The cut? Horrible! Sweet P’s dress was beautiful & I can tell you, my nieces would love to wear something that hot for prom! It definitely isn’t too glamorous! Teenage girls today dress that way! I think the judges need to do some research! And no way should Chris have been voted off. He’s been consistent & his designs have been appealing even to me. Some of those designers clothes have looked like total crap. Christian’s dress was awful. So was his tyrannical model.

Adri on

Victoria’s dress was the most inventive of them all, and it was also the most modern and fashion-forward. I’m really not a big Victoria fan, but I thought she deserved to win. And while I think Kevin’s dress was the worst, I’m sad to see him go. I think Ricky should have been the one to leave.

Connie on

Gosh, all you people against Ricky, I can’t believe it! If you go back through all the episodes, you would see that he has been doing very good. They just haven’t talked to him, he’s been safe. Ricky is a nice guy. I love him! I loved Kevin, but what a let down! I thought he’d be in the top three. He failed, big time. For some reason, he didn’t care that his outfit was not finished. One way to look at this challenge … which outfits would you find in the prom dress area? Not Kevin’s! Even though he’s been doing very good, he’s the one that should have gone home. You have to remember, Heidi says it every week, “One day you’re in … the next day you’re out.” She doesn’t say, “If you’ve done good the most, you’re in, if you’ve done bad the most, your out.” It’s each challenge alone … they have to “make it work” every time.

Alanna on
