Project Runway recap: finale part 2! spoiler alert!

Can you believe we're at the end? Well, not technically the end since we have a reunion show next week. Sorry, a DRAMA-FILLED reunion show, according to Lifetime. With all the smack people talked in their interviews, that doesn't surprise me.

I think this was a great season. The final three designers all put on an interesting show. Plus we got to see Dmitry! I love him.

I was a tad surprised at the preparation stage. Michelle had so much done, Stanley had so little done, and Patricia needed Tim to edit her entire collection. I don't think that's very fair, but probably everyone was worried that without his help, Patricia's collection would have been a complete disaster. I give Patricia credit for her originality, but honestly, her clothes aren't wearable. You wouldn't buy a car that you couldn't drive, would you? That's sort of how I feel about it. And her clothes were not appropriate for fall. Not in my neck of the woods, anyway.

Stanley did a good job making his items younger, but so many of his looks had coats or jackets or capes over them. I felt like I couldn't see the "real" clothes. I'm wondering if his outerwear was covering a multitude of his final sewing issues. Notice when questioned about it, he was quick to say that the helpers backstage were to blame. Oh really? The helpers who saved you from having no show? That kind of cut-throat behavior sure racks up bad karma, in my opinion. He acted like they ripped out his hems and then redid them worse. Eye roll.

Michelle's collection was the obvious winner, without even seeing the other two. It looked expensive, her models were confident, and it was cohesive. It was a show but there were also items that could easily be adapted for a real person. I still think she's a tad mean, but she did help Stanley towards the end, so she wins some points for that. You KNOW that there have been past seasons where people interview that there's no way they're helping a competitor.

It was nice to see Michael Kors again, even though I do like Zac Posen. I think that Michael's objectivity cut down on his snarky comments (although, "art teacher on an acid trip" cracked. me. up.) and he had a lot of helpful things to say.

All in all, I think the right person won. I was afraid that Heidi's love for Patricia would skew the results (did you notice Layana commenting about the Heidi-love in the preview for the reunion? interesting!). It was an entertaining season and without too much annoying drama.

The important question is: where can I get Mondo's fez? Please tell me someone else saw that crazy thing.
