    I'm an addict too, and I'm loving Michael. I think he might be the first contestant to win 2 challenges back to back, not positive though, that's from my own memory. I thought her dress last night was interesting, and the top of it was beautifully done. I think the plastic wrap was unnecessary, but he explained it all fairly well. I actually liked Jeffrey's dress too, I was a little surprised at myself.

    They're turning Laura into the new villain and that makes me sad. She's had some great comments in interview

    I agree, NoDay, I don't think anyone else has won back to back challenges. The guy can really design flattering clothes for women. I guess I would have liked the top of the dress, but I couldn't get past the plastic wrap. And, he acts like an adult, too, which is refreshing.

    Laura might not be the new villain, but they are setting her up opposite Jeffrey.....(be careful, Mr. J, she went head to head with Keith and look where he is now....)

    Ekee, I don't know who will win, but I think Michael will be a finalist unless they team him up with another designer who could bring him down.

    I haven't picked a designer yet, once it gets down to about six, I'm gonna toss the quarter.....

    I was severely disappointed with the most recent episode. Vincent CLEARLY should have gone home, but allison does because she made her model look OMGZ like a plus?!? I guess Heidi would rather walk around (or actually NOT be able to walk around) in a "dress" that looked like you rolled around in the scrap paper bin than look like a *gasp* size 8!!!111

    I listened to Tim Gunn's podcast rehash of this week's episode and I gotta say even though I love him, he flatly said Allison's model was plus size in it and that is just pure bullshit. I saw the model's stats online here and she's "plus size" at 5'10" with a 24" waist and a size 4. Four. Quatro.

    Anyway, he also made it clear he thought Vincent should've gone this week and with that I agree wholeheartedly.

    I feel really bad and surprised about Allison. Vincet has to go next week, he is creepy and weird.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    I thought he just referred to the model as the "zaftig" model, not patently plus size. Even in the crazy modeling world, I think the bottom edge of plus size is an 8, not a 4....

    check out this interview with Allison in EW

    If you had asked a bunch of Project Runway fans a couple of weeks ago who would be in the final two, chances are quite a few of them would have guessed 25-year-old Alison Kelly. Next thing you know, after one ill-fitting paper dress on a zaftig model (Tim Gunn's word not mine!), she's history. Alison called EW on Wednesday to tell us why she thought she'd won the challenge and why she thinks we have bad taste.

    ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Alison, if I had a bigger salary, I totally would have put money on you to make it until the end. I really thought it might be an Alison-Uli finale.

    ALISON KELLY: I think everyone is horrified. I guess they could only have one blond girl.

    EW: When you were standing up there with Vincent, did you think there was any way you would be sent home?

    AK: No. I had been in the top twice already, and I had never been in the bottom. I saw myself going very far. I was very confident that day.

    EW: It makes you wonder if the judges decide based on that week's design or factor in past outfits.

    AK: I thought they watched your designs from each episode and saw what you could do. I'd never been in the bottom before, and some of the other designers had a couple of times. I couldn't really figure it out that day. I was completely shocked. I'm still completely shocked to the point where I'm not going to watch this episode. But so many things are working out for me.

    EW: Like what?

    AK: I'm designing a 25-piece collection for Shopbop, which is launching in September. You'll be able to buy my clothes there. I'm teaming with a jewelry designer, Rachel Leigh, and she's going to be designing a jewelry line to go along with my collection.

    EW: How is it that Vincent managed to stay when you're gone?

    AK: And Vincent was standing backstage saying, ''I'm so f---ing ready to go home right now.'' I was sitting back there like, ''I am not ready to go home.'' But it's reality TV. It's dramatic. I was, like, really peaceful and likable. I think I didn't bring enough drama.

    EW: Do you really think you got kicked off for not bringing enough drama?

    AK: That's the unfortunate thing about TV. At the same time, I think I came across really well, and I've gotten so much exposure from it. The fact that I was eliminated is going to cause so much attention. People are going to be shocked and appalled. I'm one of the only designers that has a clothing line and has my own label and makes a collection every season. It's going to bring a lot of attention my way.

    EW: In retrospect, do you wish you'd made that multicolored miniskirt work, instead of making that paper dress?

    AK: No. I loved the colors and pattern and everything, but it wasn't going to look right. All I had was paper. I had to work with what I had. I went to art school, and I did a lot of sculpture classes. What I had in mind was designing an outfit out of paper that would inspire an outfit out of fabric. I wanted to sculpt something you can't make out of fabric, something that would stand on its own. I looked at the piece, and I absolutely loved it. A lot of the other designers did too. We always talk about who we think is going to win that day, and a lot of people thought it was me.

    EW: What was up with the hair-bow situation?

    AK: I had an idea for the hair, to do a little bow. The hair people put up her hair, but they weren't going to do the final bow until right before she went out. They did this huge flop instead of this tiny bow. I got a lot of crap from the judges for styling. But it was out of my control. The hair wasn't how I wanted it to be.

    EW: You didn't seem too happy with your model. Was she really that big? I mean, was she a size 4 instead of a size 2?

    AK: No, she's a lot bigger than me. She's absolutely gorgeous, but she shouldn't be a runway model. She's maybe a size 8 or a 10. She's not thin at all.

    EW: Why would the producers put in a model who's not runway-model size?

    AK: So people like me get eliminated. They threw in someone who had scoliosis whose shoulders are three inches different. Did you ever notice whoever's designing for Nazri often wins? There are three models who seem to win. It's because they have model bodies. I was cursed from the beginning. I had the model with scoliosis the first time that's why I don't think I won the dog challenge. And this time, my model chose me. I was like, ''Oh no!'' The horrors! Scoliosis!

    EW: There seemed to be a lot of tension last night between Laura and Vincent after the runway. What was going on there?

    AK: I definitely felt the tension rising. Laura was pissed off because she really liked me. She couldn't believe it was me [who was voted out]. I'm glad they showed that.

    EW: It seemed like you and Uli got really close.

    AK: She was really great and really supportive. She had just become my roommate. I was living with Angela and Laura. They weren't my favorite roommates.

    EW: Okay, you must tell me what it's like living with Laura and Angela.

    AK; Well, we were barely ever there, but I think I related to them the least of everyone on the show. Especially Angela. It's so funny. She was such a strange bird. Sleeping a foot away from her every night was not my favorite thing.

    EW: Erom where I sit, Angela and Vincent are absolutely the weakest links on the show. How did you all feel internally?

    AK: I thought they were definitely the weakest links on the show. But both of them are so completely outrageous and crazy that they make for good TV.

    EW: You had some controversial friends Keith and Jeffrey. Was it awkward for you, especially after Keith left?

    AK: Keith was my best friend there. Him and Jeffrey. I really felt bad for Keith. It's just really unfortunate because he was going to make it far. I thought he was going to be the golden boy. It also just really broke my heart that he may have been insecure enough that he thought he needed something to fall back on. It's really not fair if somebody has pattern-making books when the rest of us are winging it. I had all these mixed feelings. I felt bad for him and his ego but also was hurt that he could have had an advantage over us when he won. It just made me sick.

    EW: And Jeffrey? He seems to be a bit of a controversial character.

    AK: He's definitely an elitist. He thinks he's the best one there. He's playing up his character, though. He's really nice and down to earth and awesome, and I like him. I understand his aesthetic, and I think his clothes are great. We just relate to each other. He says what I'm thinking but don't want to say.

    EW: I love watching Jeffrey and Laura bicker. He hated Laura's dress this week. Do I have bad taste if I think her dress was kind of great?

    AK: I think Laura's clothes are appealing to people. The thing with Laura is she's a really good seamstress. She's technically really good. My favorite piece was the one she made this week. The other stuff I find kind of hideous. She did two jackets with fur collars. I thought they were disgusting. But it's Michael Kors on the panel, and it's classic and elegant, so he loves it. My stuff is edgier.

    EW: Did you think there was a judge who got your style?

    AK: I thought Heidi did at the beginning, but then she turned on me. I think Vera Wang did. I liked having her there. I think my stuff is fashion forward and innovative, and that can be intimidating or not understood well. These four people happened to not like what I did on that day. It doesn't mean I'm a bad designer.

    EW: Now that you're out, who's going to make it to the top two?

    AK: I'd have wanted to see either me or Jeffrey in the end, so Jeffrey. And no one else really blew me away, honestly.

    EW: Are you in touch with the other designers still?

    AK: Yeah, Malan and Keith. I saw Laura at Mood the other day.

    EW: Really? Does that mean she's working on her final collection?

    AK: Who knows? I was there too.

    EW: Well, maybe you were there because you were allowed back on the show and you are also now working on your final collection. Or maybe I've just lost it.

    AK; Don't worry: Getting back on the show comes into my dreams all the time.

    Tim did call the model "zaftig" in the episode, but this is what he said in his podcast:

In fact I think we were all confident that in fact she really is a plus size model and this is simply a statement of fact. So this garment would have benefited from someone who had a modified figure, I’ll put it that way.

    I don't see why you guys are getting offended about it...unless you're aiming to be a model or something

    Male models get critiqued for not having a six pack, and being under 5'11

    i'm 5'6 and skinny but i don't lose any sleep over it

    it's just the reality of the business. if models were to be average height, average weight, and with an average face - everyone would be one. they're not supposed to represent the average population.

    the whole point is that they're "rare" or to some point unnatural, how many six feet tall women that weigh 120 pounds do you see on the street everyday?

    haute couture fashion designers don't design for people anyways, they design for mannequins and then find people who look like mannequins to walk down the runway.

    I'm not offended about it, but I just thought it was ridiculous. During the episode Heidi practically snarled that the model looked plus sized and I was thinking "What the fuck is she talking about?" I know models are ridiculously thin, but I mean Alison's model was a size 4 and considered plus? It seemed like they were in an alternate universe or their vison had irreversibly warped to see a size 4 as plus. I just thought it was so weird, I guess.

    I liked Alison for the most part and thought she should've stayed over Vincent, certainly, but I thought her dress was atrocious and blaming the model for being "zaftig" or whatever just seemed so stupid.

    I was fixing it SVZ I don't seem to be able to click the checkmark on a post to do a delete that way anymore, I have to do it through edit now.

    I'm not offended about it. That's an industry fact, size 8=plus size, I've done some plus size modeling work and am an employee for Lane Bryant. We have the real fatties of the plus size modeling world, they're a *gasp* size 12-14!

    My problem with it wasnt over sizing or anything, it was more so over heidi saying she looked like a fat minnie mouse, when in reality there arent a whole lot of things that could make that girl actually look fat. I agree that her dress design did make her look bigger, but to go as far as saying she looked fat?!?! Its outrageous
