Predictions for tonight?

Well, it seems that most BPR readers feel that Kara must be the decoy. Bear in mind that this is NOT because of the quality of her Fashion Week show, but rather because she didn't use as many PR models as the other designers!

Most agree that her show was surprisingly excellent. Well, we will see tonight...

Meanwhile it's not too late to add your prediction here.

I'm going to add another option though - the "I can't tell who the decoy is" option. That would be my entry! If this is your opinion, please add it.

All four of these designers created fabulous collections for Fashion Week. No matter what happens tonight - congratulations to all!

Kara auf w/ a win by Santino...

I'm assuming that the person they are designing for picks the winner and Santino has a way of making strangers love him.

We could EASILY see a win from Daniel or Chloe too, but I'm leaning in the Tino direction.

We shall see though...

JRT said...

I have to agree with adrienne, Santino is going to win this one.

But as far as the auf, it could be any of the other three. Though I am hoping it is Kara (I really like her, though).

Tbone said...

I stand by my upset Santino auf prediction based on his curious "maybe next year" runway comment, Jay's construction problem observation, and Tim's earlier blog mention of Santino meeting his "Waterloo".

The win to Chloe, based on nothing more than personal bias :)

I think Chloe could be cut this time, not because of a lack of talent, she has plenty, but because her personality is low key. This season is all about drama with the clothes secondary. I think they'll "cast" the final three as Santino the arrogant jerk, Daniel the dreamboat and Kara the crazy one. Then, Daniel wins. And Michael Kors proposes marriage. Of course, this prediction is totally influenced by my lingering bitterness over seeing Nick (the REAL dreamboat) get cut. So, I'm probably just a jaded bitter queen and totally wrong!

JRT said...

well the one thing i did notice about chloe is if you look at her website, her past fashion lines have been very different from this runway. could she been the decoy and said, what the heck, i am going to go out and make a drastic statement. or am i reaching too much.

Tbone said...

From the Houston Chronicle article about Chloe posted earlier:

"Dao said it was time to rest after spending many months working on her collection."

That doesn't sound like someone working on a decoy collection. You would have to assume that the Final 4 knew all along that they would all show, which is not what happened last year.

Did anyone besides me notice that Kara's model was not used at Olympus fashion week? Austin's model was not used when he was the decoy. Also, I saw 14 designs for each designer but Kara only had 13, Curious. I thought all the designs except Kara's show little imagination.

AJ said...

ajccau, Kara's model was there. I didn't see her at first either. Try this link: Eden in Kara's show compared to Eden's Bravo profile

Also, I'm pretty sure that each desginer only had 13 garments, but I'd have to double check on it...

I liked Kara's collection arguably the best, but I think the similarities between this line and her Fall '05 collection are too similar and that leads me to believe she's the decoy more then her lack of PR models...

jrt, I swear sometimes that we are sharing a brain!

Curly Glamour Girlie said...

Great point aj - Santino snags the guest judge!

I too somehow see Santino finally reining it in and doing what he does best also because tonight is an evening gown and both of his previous wins were with dresses.

I can see Kara being aufed tonight, but it's hard to make a prediction based on the collections. I think at this point, they all showed amazingly strong collections and none will be hurting for work!

Kara is considered the decoy because as mentioned, her models were minimal compared to others. Also, one must consider how one of her collections has already been on her website waaay before fashion week. A different color, but it's still the same dress. And presenting at fashion week is about debuting new stuff, not rehacked designs.

Also to point out, it's funny how on Kara's site there's a jumpsuit, which is Santino inspired, as well as other designs there.

erin said...

OMG - I have been so busy with work the past 5 days that I didn't even realize PR was tonight!!! So excited now!

I agree with AJ: Kara out and Santino wins.

ajccau said...

Thanks for the heads up Aj.

I didn't recognize her.

My prediction: Tino out tonight!

PR winner: Still working on that.

asiangirl said...

Although I agree that Santino is very likely to make a great dress.. I too believe in Chloe.

Decoy? maybe Kara because with the past challenges... evening gowns do not seem to be her strong point...

ps.. totally off the topic.. but my friend recieved a huge bouquet of flowers for valentines day.. and while admiring it.. I began to think..."now how could I use these to design a dresss..." I definite will never look at greenery the same way again...

Curly Glamour Girlie said...

I'm piggybacking on asiangirl's off topic to provide my own:

For V-Day, my husband had a tee shirt made that reads "make it work" on the front and "carry on" on the back. How cool is that??!!!

AJ said...

curly, that's love right there!

Your husband = keeper!

Curly Glamour Girlie said...

AJ - I can't tell who's more into PR - he or me!! I told him I found pics of all the collections and he said "I don't want to see them before I'm supposed to!!"

He is surely a keeper!!

asiangirl said...

I believe my husband is sick of hearing about PR. so nice you have someone to share all this excitement with

AJ said...

That's so sweet!

I live w/ my parents and about a week and half ago (right after the Red Lobster episode) we went out to dinner at a restaurant right by a Red Lobster. Now my mom watches with me and my dad is so sick of hearing us do Timpressions and what not. All during dinner we were in rare form (I'm sure the margaritas had NOTHING to do with it...lol) talking non-stop about how Andrae embarrassed Tim at Red Lobster and such.

Toward the end of dinner, I said something random and my dad looks at me and in his best Timpression goes "Andrew wouldn't like that."

I died! It was so funny. Since then he's all like "How's Andrae?" every once in awhile...too funny!

I'm with Tbone. If Santino is out tonight, he's the one who would just say "the heck with the whole thing, I don't need PR, I have better things to do." Consequently, his collection would have the construction flaws that Jay noticed. Anybody else would have gone full throttle to make a fabulous collection, even if they were #4. It is just too good an opportunity for Chloe, Kara or Daniel to pass up. They'd be stupid to treat it lightly. Santino on the other hand...

Of course, we have seen shabby work from Santino even when he was supposedly trying. So maybe.... No, I'll stick to my guns and say Santino is out tonight.

I must say though, from just looking at the photos, I really loved his collection.

I'm with Tbone.
Santino out.
Chloe win.

And I'm guessing this only because of those 'next year' and 'Waterloo' comments. Really, the Chloe guess is just that ... a guess. I've seen lots of predicitions about Kara being the decoy but I had also heard that Nick was going to be in the final three; we know that predictions can be wrong.

Really, it could be any of them as winners given the fact that they are designing a gown. And, think about Wendy Pepper last year ... who saw that win coming with the Grammy gown?

Laura K said...

Asiangirl, my husband ws the same way until he actually watched an episode. He sat down in front of the tv.... "Don't change that channel" I cried, because I was taping a PR marathon. It happened to be the Red Lobster episode and my Ken was cracking up over Santino's impressions. Now he's asking "When is Project Runway on again?"

asiangirl said...

No worries.. even if my husband doesn't watch.. thats why i have all of you!!

thanks!

Aunt Teak said...

Santino out, Chloe in.

Because the universe is just, and Daniel has enough already.
