Congratulations, Gretchen Jones
Mondo may have been the crowd favorite - in our eyes, his metamorphosis took him from oddball lonely boy to confident winner. And while his clothing was fun, joyful, when I saw photos of his finale show I thought of the complaint heard in other seasons: he had designed clothes, not fashion. His mixing of patterns was masterful, but like season 3's Uli Herzner, they may have seemed a bit of a crutch. Tim Gunn should not have advised him to leave that all-black dress out of his collection.
Andy South was my pick from episode one. Unfortunately, he pulled a Santino and showed a collection that, while beautiful, was largely safe and lacking a lot of the edgy side of Andy we saw during the competition.
So what did you think about the finale? Are you also pissed that Gretchen won?
