Spoiler Alert: Shop Project Runway Winners Collection.


If you don't want to know who won stop reading now. Here's something to keep you occupied.

The rest of you know that Leanne drove off into the sunset with her Saturn hybrid and $100K smackeroos - seemingly on her way to fashion design domination. Surprise, surprise.

She was a pretty clear favorite so the whole show was a bit anti-climactic to tell the truth but I am happy for her and look forward to seeing how she grows as a designer. On to the important news: you can now bid on all of the finalist's collections. In my previous post I said that one of Leanne's creations would top my list of must-haves. After last night? Uh-uh.

Korto & Kenley both hit it out of the park with their collections. Sure Leanne's were beautifully constructed but the colors were just eh and unless you are a size 0 would look pretty horrendous on most. K's & K's collections, on the other hand, showed more color, originality, and spirit. The two designs above have my name written all over them.

Agree, disagree? Let's hear it...and don't even think of outbidding me on these.

I agreed but none of the collections knocked my socks off. What was with using the petals on EVERYTHING? I think it lost something. The judges had already made up their minds the week before, when she made their favorite wedding dress.

Wrote about it on my blog, too ;)

Leanne's collection was the only one where i could see myself in all of the pieces. while i actually liked a few pieces in the other two designer's shows, they're not wearable on a daily basis. that green top and black skirt is great, but if i wore that on the street, people would think i was a clown!

the green dress would be perfect for a red carpet event !!

I was just wondering why Kenley had those strange and totally distracting fake leaves in her hair.

I agree with Mr. Style, I like the green dress. Unique!
