Like someone said to Claire, “You’re not a designer, you’re a stylist.”

Clear sign that she was wrong, got caught, like a kid with her hand in the candy jar. Behaved just like a child. Was sweet to have this end on the $25k challenge!

The design they made for KP seemed something just about anyone who could sew patches on and a sew a straight line could have made. They mention they looked at past costumes and came up with the design, so clearly, they copy something and then put their own signature on to it. Basically, the same they did on the show, nothing original.

These somewhat self-taught designers (they learned from a mix of community college sewing classes and YouTube videos) devised a plan to make Katy something spectacular, ultimately presenting her with a candy heart dress, hand-embellished with 5,000 Swarovski crystals. "We researched every single outfit she ever wore. We also heard she tests out her costumes by jumping rope in them, so we took that into account," says Shawn. Adds Claire, "Blood, sweat, and tears went into it."

The same for me.

In terms of avant-garde I would have chosen Kentaro. Kenya, IMO, really improved this week, and I like her very much. So, I was glad to see what she sent out.

I know it's a little off topic, but I'm concerned if PR itself is in danger as it is a Harvey Weinstein production and his wife, Georgina Chapman's brand Marchesa is under attack and boycott. Can another company buy the PR brand and distance it from the HW scandal? I have no respect anymore for Georgina as her husband forced actresses to wear his wife's designs. (And he tried to launch her as an actress in a couple of crappy, forgotten films.) Not to mention the far more horrific acts he committed against so many women.

I always thought she was a class act (and was unaware that she had married HW, whose only appeal had to have been wealth and power, because he is basically an ugly, fat, scruffy looking, predatory a******) until all this tawdry mess came to light.

In spite of this season's story lines, I still love the show but do not want to lend support to the Weinstein scandal in any way.

Georgina is one of the judges for the Project Runway All Stars show. This is part of a statement on the People website:



Georgina Chapman Returning to Project Runway All Stars Following Split from Harvey Weinstein

Natalie Stone

People October 12, 2017


Georgina Chapman is returning to the Project Runway All Stars judges table when season 6 premieres.

“Production is already completed on the next season of Project Runway All Stars with Georgina,” a rep for the reality Lifetime series confirmed to PEOPLE Thursday. “We have yet to determine an airdate.”

The 41-year-old Marchesa designer has appeared as a judge on the show — which is co-produced by Bunim-Murray Productions and estranged husband Harvey Weinstein‘s former studio, The Weinstein Company — since it premiered in 2012.

Confirmation of Chapman’s return follows her split from 65 -year-old Weinstein — with whom she shares two children ages 7 and 4 — earlier this week.

Cancellation if Weinstein's company goes under or no longer can produce it for some reason.

He was removed from the board/CEO but the company, which is huge, I'm sure goes on. Pretty sure anyway! LOL

^^^This!!! She is soooo full of herself with the "I deserve to be in the top" comments. She acted like it wasnt a big deal that she broke the rules. ugh. Good ridance with her "sticking finger up her butt and smelling it" facial responses.

And though the show has has always included product endorsement and placement, it seemed really excessive to me tonight.

Although I liked Brandon's look, the little girl who wanted chocolate chocolate everywhere surely must have been disappointed.

I'm sorry that Amy is gone - she had made some interesting stuff. But I kept thinking tonight that she looked exactly like TinTin, which was distracting.

I want to see something really breathtakingly gorgeous next week!

(and re Georgina Chapman, who judges often, I've always thought that she only married Harvey Weinsten for his money and power. He's spectacularly ugly, and she surely had to know how creepy he was. She has children with him, ick!)


She layed down with this sick and disgusting man and had his children because she can now and forever be tethered to his MONEY. I wonder if she had to get drunk or take some pills to have sex with this troll.
