Laurence has been the most consistent designer of the season with her challenge stats speaking for themselves. With only one low score and six high scores (including two wins) she boasts the best record of the Final 4. For that reason Gold Derby readers give her leading odds to win first place despite middling reviews from the judges on her three-look preview last week. Erin got the best notices from the judges in that preview, but remains behind Laurence as our favorite to place second with 7/5 odds in that question.

Erin’s journey this season has been a roller coaster, starting with two wins in three challenges only to falter for four weeks straight of low scores. Since that decline she’s risen again for three straight weeks of high scores including one win. Unlike Laurence who has gone in a new direction for her collection, Erin is returning to the quirkiness and fun of her early work that impressed the judges.

Roberi Parra and Rik Villa have trailed the women all season long in our odds and are expected to battle for third place. Neither designer got such overwhelmingly positive critiques from the judges in the preview to suggest that either will compete with the women for the win. Final predictions by Gold Derby readers like you favor Rik to place third with 6/5 odds and Roberi to place fourth with 4/5 odds in those questions.
