Did You Prefer the Avant-Garde or the Everyday Looks Last Night on Project Runway?

Just when the designers on Project Runway thought their limits had been pushed, they were asked to go that extra inch. Last night, Tim Gunn challenged them to create two outfits in two days: one avant-garde and one every day. Paired off into teams and inspired by their model's crazy braided, mohawked, and crimped hairdos, the designers set off in all different directions. Team Jillian and Victorya went punk glam, Team Fierce (Chris and Christian) used 45 yards of fabric on one gown, Team Kit and Ricky were inspired by Little Bo Peep, and Team Rami and Sweet P were all about the (personal) drama. But when it comes down to it, which did you prefer — the avant-garde looks or the every day?

For a full run down of the "On Garde" episode, be sure to check out what Buzz has to say.

The avant-garde was a lot of fun to look at, and it was interesting to see the designers' thought processes behind their designs. I loved Kit and Ricky's avant-garde piece, but apparently it wasn't enough for the judges, though it was still adorable. I was incredibly sad that Kit was auffed. : ( I was super impressed with both Chris and Christian's dress and Victoria and Jillian's outfit - the fact that they were able to complete those looks in just two days, plus the ready-to-wear pieces as well?? Incredible! The craftsmanship on both were fantastic - how is that attention to detail possible in such little time?!? I would buy Sweet Pea's gray dress in a second though. I want to see that made by somebody so I can take that baby home!! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!

Totally Avant-garde except for Sweet P- where the opposite was the case. I loved Team Fierce's avant garde look the most and Sweet P's RTW look the most. And snotty Rami? Can suck it. And NEITHER in the case of Kit & Ricky. Both were ucky.

I thought Christians Avant-Garde was beautiful, he is so creative and always pulls his creations together with a funky feminine touch!

Christian is such an amazing designer and the most entertaining part of this season's show. Even if he doesn't win, I think he'll ultimately have a wonderful career in fashion. On to the bad: the poor, verging on destitute, little bo peep creation was awful. The fabric choices looked exceedingly cheap, and the construction was poor. And, was it just me, or did Victorya's team's ready-to-wear dress look like a vintage 5-7-9 number?

The Avant-Garde pieces were much funner to look at, but I loved Sweet P's everyday dress. And I thought her and Rami's other outfit was really beautiful too, but I understand that it wasn't over the top enough to be considered 'Avant-Garde'.

Ricky should have gone and Kit should have stayed. Period. Kit was one of my favorites!

I WANT THAT COAT! Seriously. Black satin... tartan plaid... trench. It's everything I've ever wanted in a garment. I can't stand Victoria but good g'd damn that coat was fierce. Speaking of fierce... GO TEAM FIERCE! Christian has been my fave since epi. #1 and he hasn't dissapointed me yet!!

The every day looks were pretty thrown-together. But considering how much time they had for the pret-a-porter look, it makes sense. I loved every single thing about that team Victorya's avant garde look, though.

Seriously, can anyone tell me why Constantly-Crying Ricky is still on PR? Compared to Kit and Kevin (last 2 off) CCR's designs are boring and his finishing is poor. BTW, I didn't like Christian in the beginning of the season but that little guy is slowly creeping into my heart.

Victoria and Jillian's trenchcoat was absolutely amazing. My roommate and I couldn't stop gushing about it. Too, it IS crazy that Ricky is still on. I was mad when they dumped Kevin last week instead of Ricky. Sure, Kevin's prom dress was horrible, but so was Ricky's and Ricky has been consistently horrible.

Christian is a genius. No one works faster and better than he does. He was so cute when he demonstrated his runway walk. He is this season's "star" designer.

Avant-Garde, definitely. I love fashion as art, and both the top two looks were pretty amazing.^^Yeah, I can't believe RICKY is still on! I thought his time had run out like 3 episodes ago.

I loved Christian and Chris' work this week. The avant garde was great to look and looked expensive and very detailed. The wearable one was put together quickly but was still a great look. I am shocked to see Kit go though. Is anyone else curious how Ricky is still around but Kit is gone??

BTW - I was REALLy sad to see Kit go last night. This was not her challenge, but she's been my favorite from the jump. Her stuff has been amazing up til now and I think the judges made a huge mistake. I am sure we will see more of her work though outside the constraints of the show.
