|Ken with his Superfan client. |
He's finally gone. No more petting the kitty.
I think Sandro and Ken should be paired in their own reality show and call it Rage on the Runway.
The next day all the designers but Ken are in the lounge looking like they got no sleep which they probably didn't. Tim Gunn brings in Ken who does not apologize to anyone, but just says he got upset. Yes, Alexander did behave inappropriately, but Ken needs to be on medication. I guess they didn't want to boot him off right there because it would have been disappointing the Superfan client, but I hope they told him "Knock it off, Mary!" the night before.
The runway show was a bit of an anticlimax but Ken was eliminated even though Alexander's outfit was far worse.
Episode 11 did lack drama but there was a double elimination. This was the create-your-own-print challenge and the designers had to use a young "innovator" as inspiration. Yeah, like a skateboarder or a kickstart guru is really gonna inspire me to make a fashion statement. Thanks, HP for the product placement and the stupid idea for a challenge.
The final result is a mixed bag. Braden's cool print works on a bomber jacket over a tube skirt, plus it doesn't hurt that the model is superhot. Dom's is full of wild color and the styling is tribal and exotic. Kate sews 75 panels on her skirt and you can't even see the print. Alexander goes cuckoo for cocoa puffs and make a chocolate bishop's gown just cause his last name is Pope (if he's gonna be that literal, why not take some poetry written by his namesake and scrawl them all over white muslin?, Alexander Pope was a real poet, you non-English majors). Justin makes drab curtains. Alexandria opts for cheap chic and gets away with it because Heidi likes her. Dom wins (finally, I really love her work) and Alexander and Kate are given the boot. Kate weeps at being eliminated for a second time (she was aufed last season, too). For the final three, I'm guessing Helen, Braden and Dom.
