I think that I am one of the few people who have watched Project Runway this season and pulled for Michael C (well, besides my husband). Everyone on the show pretty much loathed him, and from what I’ve read on other blogs- the audience did too. Most were happy to see him go last week, but I’m going to be honest here and say that I was a bit upset about it. I 100% feel that Gretchen should have went before him. Her stuff is so drab, and last week there was one word that came to mind when she showed her three pieces- Goodwill. Every piece looked like something you would find on the rack at Goodwill- tattered, drab, and BLAH! And those mom pants that she showed- OMG! I’m convinced that she was kept for TV ratings b/c of all of the drama she brings lol.
I will also agree that Michael C’s reaction was a bit dramatic (ok very dramatic!)- but I’m sure it was b/c he also felt that his pieces were stronger than Gretchen’s. And the whole thing with his family too.. I feel for the guy.
I really like Mondo and Andy as well, and was hoping it would be the three of them at fashion week. I started poking around on the net last night, and found out that the final 10 actually showed at fashion week! What?! Why was this kept top secret? I looked at all of the collections except for the final 3 (didn’t want to ruin the surprise!), and although I can’t compare Gretchen’s pieces to Michael’s- I will show a couple of pieces that I was really drawn to in Michael’s collection:
I was also rooting for April, but after seeing her collection I was a bit disappointed. I’m pretty excited about the finale this week though! Who do you hope will win?
