I am so glad Christopher won this challenge! His dress was beautiful and I adored the color of the top. I almost missed this episode, since I got caught up at work for longer than I planned to yesterday. Thankfully I had remembered to set my Hopper to record it for me, so I was able to turn it on as soon as I walked in the door. I would have hated missing this one, because my Dish co-workers and I love to talk about Project Runway every week. All the dresses in this collection are beautifully designed; good job, Lord & Taylor!
