    That's all I will say for now.

    And yes, Kenley's dress was so ridiculous! Who would wear that!??!!?
    I was bummed about who went home too. Although, honestly, what I saw from the collection I was thinking "Ewww." It just was just a little too tacky in my opinion. I'm surprised because I usually like that designer's stuff.

      Yes I would agree I was shocked about who went home...Kenley's dress reminded me of the dress Bjork wore to one of the award shows in the late
      90's or 2000 something....I love Leann's bridesmaid dress....I have to say Jarell's line looked a little too "Done Up" I was kinda shocked and just thought it wasn't anything I would love to see!!!!

      Can't wait to see the finale!

        this is the mcqueen dress they mentioned:

        Lily Donaldson on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

        it's from mcqueen's fall 2008 collection (which would have been shown in the spring i guess). gotta admit it's strikingly similar to what kenley did. not sure if i'd go so far as to say she copied it tho ... i mean, could she really be that dumb? these judges are IN THE BIZ. they are going to recognize stuff that just recently came down the runway!

        side note: christian used to work for alexander mcqueen, and his finale dress at bryant park was very similar to mcqueen's work. where is the fine line between inspiration and copy?

              anyone know if there is going to be a reunion show this time? that's always the best show of the season, and it doesn't seem like they are doing one

                You know what's funny... if I remember correctly that's not the first time they told Kenely her work looked like it had already been in an established designers collection. I forgot what challenge it was, but they mentioned that the piece she made looked like something that was already on the runway and she had a fit. She SWEARS she doesn't look at collections though...

                  Oh, Kenely's dress looks JUST LIKE Lily Donaldson's dress..... really the only difference is the tool that Kenley added. And they did say her work looked like someone elses. The thing is Kenely likes to do a vintage style from the 50's 60's so she actually does look at collections, just older ones. So alot of her work my look familiar since fashion tends to go in and out.

                  I really like Jarell too, I wish they could have had 4 on the run way.

                    I'm pissed Kenley made it through. Even though I loved her wedding dress, I agree with all yall... WAY to similar! She shouldn't have been able to get away with it. And why didn't Jerell listen to Tim and tack those things in? It seems that whatever Tim suggests to change, and the designer doesn't, they ALWAYS get called out on it on the runway... Why can't they freaking listen!

                      Right! I'm sure the judges have all of Tim's suggestions. I'm also surprised they put thru Kenley's dress, which is similar to another design, than Jerell's orignal (he could have made some changes). Oh well, I still cant wait for Wed's show!
