Project Runway

Only week until the PR finale! Who do you think is going to win? Based on what I've seen of the collections so far... I still don't know. My heart says Santino - his stuff is really, really gorgeous. Plus, between this week and last week's shows, he has completely grown on me. Maybe his arrogance was all a cover for insecurity, but I'm back liking him. But only a little. LA dwellers, how much do you think he pays in rent for that house? It looked big - and pricey - and how can someone who sold his shop afford that much house? At any rate... Chloe doesn't impress me right now. I did NOT like the big pink coat, and while the navy blue dress with the cut-out back was lovely, I have never liked Grace, her model, and I think that putting her in that dress as the show-stopping final piece of the collection is a mistake. I'm super worried for Daniel. I would love to see him win, but I think Tim Gunn's lack of enthusiasm is a bad sign. Yes, it's pretty stuff, and yes, women would actually wear it, but it's possible that the collection didn't make a big splash at Fashion Week. I love that the non-finalist designers were brought back to assist the finalists! They're certainly going to need the help. Daniel needs buttons on everything, and Chloe and Santino looked like they had gone into mind meltdown. With that said, what the hell was Chloe thinking choosing Diana as her assistant? Why didn't she choose Kara? I think that plan will backfire bad.
I'm a little sad that next week is the last week. I will NOT be watching Top Chef. Doesn't America's Next Top Model start again next Wednesay?

Kara looked like she was going to KILL Chloe for not picking her. Diana is a failure at both design AND sewing. I agree that it was a bad choice.

I think that Santino is going to win. His collection was the strongest and I was glad to see that one on one he was a little bit more conciliatory and personal one on one.

I guess I'll have to go back to watching ANTM--who knows--maybe this one WILL end up chosing someone who actually CAN be a "top model."

On the "How much is Santino's rent" question, depending on what part of "Hollywood" (his description) it's in, my semi-educated guess would be $2-3 thousand a month.
