What the eff, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia? Have you spent too long in the tanning bed? What is wrong with you? Everyone knows Mondo should have won. I never thought I’d so wholeheartedly be on the side of Jessica Simpson.

What planet were they on? To watch them praise Mondo’s unique voice and endless creativity at every turn, only to decide at the very moment when it counts that they actually didn’t mean all those nice encouraging things they were saying about his style the whole time, and oh yeah, we’re going to go with this crappier collection for no apparent reason. They picked a collection that was clearly inferior, made by a bitchy and desperate human being. Not only was Mondo’s collection superior, but you’d think even from a soulless TV show standpoint, they would choose the person who touched the lives of many people by admitting he was HIV positive. It was fucking brave. It was good television because it was real.

Gretchen Jones is “current”? Well, Mondo Guerra is forward-thinking. I thought the point of shows like this are to find new, interesting voices in the industry instead of those reflecting what others are already doing. I’m not saying Ms. Jones isn’t talented. I really do like her clothes. But to hold her on-and-off performance up in comparison to a great creative mind like Mondo’s and have her come out the winner is some strange world indeed. Maybe Mr. Kors and Ms. Garcia are spending a little too much time on yachts to be in tune with what the people want. Believe us, we’re Donnybrook – we would know about these things. Kick their stupid overly-tanned smug faces off the show! BOOOOOO!

    It’s like Tim said on his video blogs: the judges were smoking crack all season.

    The only upside to this whole sad affair is that usually the more talented people are runners-up on reality shows and end up having better careers than the winners. I think the fact that Mondo didn’t win will only galvanize his fans to make him an even bigger success than bitchy horseface Gretchen with all of her ugly turd colored maxi-dresses and leather hats.

    Give me houndstooth! Give me stripes with polka dots! Give me Mondo! And that skull T-shirt!!!

    Angora, I couldn’t agree more. I also bristled at Nina’s assertion that Gretchen’s collection represented the direction that fashion was going, and that somehow Mondo was riding Seth Aaron’s coattails. And couldn’t believe that Jessica Simpson got to be the voice of reason.

    Mondo is super-talented, adorable, and he made some kick-ass clothes. My own father even became a fan. He wondered aloud at the dinner table, “How did Mondo manage to bring all of those outfits to NY?”

    I can’t wrap my tiny, fashion-challenged, T-shirt-wearing brain around Gretchen’s clothes. And I think she had to be the most self-centered contestant in the show’s history. IIf Mondo had shown a crappy collection and THEN she won it would have been one thing, but he didn’t. His collection was awesome.

    And I wanted to go visit his clothes on Piperlime and dream that I could afford them. (sniff).
