The contestants seemed more motivated than usual, knowing what a win meant, but I was surprised by how much a couple of the designers acted like they didn't listen much to editor-in-chief (and later, guest judge) Joanna Coles when she told them what kind of outfit was appropriate for the cover. The winning designer's look fit Coles's description perfectly though, and I was glad to see this competitor take the glory home. The loser was someone I'd come to like, but the design was definitely the weakest on the runway. What did you think?
