Tonight is the season finale of Project Runway.
I have posted some random comments about the season here and there, but now that we are down to the final 3 designers, I wanted to do a retrospective of my favorite designs from each, and share my own thoughts on who I hope wins!
Admittedly, I was disappointed when hometown girl Valerie Mayen was sent home in Week 10. As I shared before, I think she is a wonderful outerwear designer, and some of my absolute favorite designs this season were hers. Yet, I have to admit, by episode 6, my heart belonged to another contestant. And he is in the Top 3! YAY!
Finalists Mondo Guerra, Gretchen Jones and Andy South have been a fixture in my home for the past few months. Every week, I watch with anticipation to see who will come out on top of that week’s challenge. Who, as Tim Gunn says, will “make it work” best! They each bring their own unique set of talents and distinct style to the table. I can’t wait to see what happens tonight, but in the meantime, here are a few of my favorite designs from various episodes:
My pick to win it all?
In compiling this list of favorite looks I actually had a hard time narrowing down my favorite pieces by the spectacularly humble Mondo Guerra, while I had a difficult time finding pieces I liked by Gretchen Jones. Nothing against her style – it just isn’t my style. Meanwhile, I find Andy’s aesthetic quite interesting, but since day 1 I have watched Mondo push the design envelope, and I am totally in his court. Mondo for the win!
Have you watched this season?
If so, what have some of your favorite designs been, and who do you think will win tonight?
