    Michael Knight is not one to mince words about why he entered Project Runway. “I wanted to win the competition and take over the world,” claims the 28-year-old designer. Inspired by the artistry of the late Gianni Versace, Knight was born in Nuremberg, Germany and raised in Montgomery, Alabama. Currently a resident of Atlanta, Georgia, Knight is a self-employed fashion designer and stylist who says that his passions are food and music when he's not eagerly anticipating his next fashion move. Knight has a degree in Apparel Design and Merchandising.

    I posted this before and it got eaten, but I think he is just fabulous. I cannot believe his dress from the last challenge didn't win, let alone even score high. And I can't wait for this week's episode:

    Word is, the designers are teamed in groups of three and he is grouped together with Laura and Angela. Now I know why they kept Angela around, so Laura and Michael can talk **** about her all episode!

    Michael is my second fave after Alison! He's down to earth, collected, grounded, and he truly knows a woman's body. The portfolio he showed during the auditions wasn't anything great, in fact I strongly disliked some of his pieces. However, PR has pushed him to really show what he's capable of and I'm loving everything so far!
    EW, please don't mix YOUR milk in MY cocoapuffs!

    I totally agree r0guish and I think that his "jet-setter" ensemble was so great and it fit him perfectly! I think he really is the most grounded, as you say.

    I have no doubt he will make it to fashion week - I believe Uli and he have been consistently good throughout and with the designers that remain there is not a chance they will send him home before fashion week.

    I agree with you Erika, he's done great throughout the whole thing and I'm very sure he'll make it to fashion week

    Wasn't too fond of his dress this week though... but he's made great pieces in the past

    I'm glad they didn't get rid of Michael this week even though his design stunk. I see him in the final 3.

    Yeah, his dress sucked this week. Not worse than Vincent's and Laura's, but it was still pretty bad. Gorgeous color though, and I like Nazri the best of all the models.

    I'd love to see him at the fashion week. He's developing slowly. Hopefully he'll get his piece in order. Didn't like the Foxy Brown suit he made at all nor the white outfit or himself.
