Keith was eliminated this week and it was very sad. He is a sweet person and he was someone it was pleasant to be around. He was starting to get sick and I think the frustration of the competition was wearing on him. I also think that although for the real woman challenge he got a skinny model who should have been easy to work with, more was expected out of him because of that. Not to mention the fact that he had a lot to prove after being in the bottom so much.
I was fairly confident with my dress when it came to the real woman challenge. Although there were some fit issues that I would have fixed, after seeing it walk down the runway, I was happy with what I put out.
Daniella did a great job with her woman despite the trouble she has had. Regardless of what happens, she has a good career ahead of her.
Smart look, Anna. You didn't whine, unlike some of the aptly-put "sizest" designers. The panic was palpable for those who were resistant to a creative design challenge. Real people are out there, not all size zero. Keep going w/that creative talent. Only a few of you are worthy of "SAFE" status. As Isaac pointed out, Donna Karan did quite well adjusting her goals toward women less than perfect.
I don't know what is so smart about your look Anna, but you totally copied the look from Zac Posen's dress which was worn by Anne Hathaway at the London Film Festival, especially the color and the stripes panels exactly as is, it's not even a good copy because you made your model look like she's got the tommy, and she actually doesn't!!! I guess you are a true copy cat yourself, not a designer that you're claiming to be!!!!
wow viewer, you really have it out for anna! are you a jealous contestant or just a mean spirited infatuated fan? sure sounds like both do apply! anyway anna, you seem very sophisticated and your design sensibility wow's me. i love your open mindedness! as all true artists know, there are no new ideas, only new ways of making them. i think you have great talent and i am sure you will make a huge name for yourself in the future. i look forward to seeing more from you. keep up the good work and never loose that fiery character! (I know you've got it!)
"viewer" i don't know what you're talking about. her design was one of the best in that episode -- and she's consistently produced some of the best work on the show week after week. also, what is "the tommy?" please explain.
Wow! That dress does have strikingly similar details. I have honestly never seen it before. I guess great minds think alike! Thanks for the tip!
Just because her design was similar to that Zac Posen dress doesn't mean she copied, "Viewer". I'd like to see you try to come up with something that good, given the same time limits, that doesn't look anything like any design under the sun. Anna is one of the best designers on the show, you're obviously just jealous that you don't have the skills, and wanted to flex your knowledge of internet fashion blogs (and way to go for that!).
Anna, I just saw what Anne Hathaway was wearing and it's really similar to what you did. Sorry, I'm an average American woman who doesn't wear size 2, and I think your design is not so flattering for an American figure, those stripes would make me look just fat. More so, your personal look doesn't appeal to me like you're a true designer, like some designers on this show - Haven, Daniella, Lidia or Angel.

Don't fade into the background. You are a very talented designer. Don't let anything get in your way....anything! Go with you're gut and move it.
I know a little bit, having worked in the high end fashion business for a long time...you have great potential. Go for it!
Best to all!
