Runway’s 10th Anniversary Season is premiering this
Thursday, July 19, with 16 new
designers. Are you excited?!
Make it work, people!
These contestants will be
competing for the prize package of $100,000 to start their own line, a Marie Claire fashion spread, a 2013
Lexus GS 350, a $50,000 technology suite, and
an opportunity to design and sell an exclusive collection at Lord & Taylor.
That’s quite the grand prize, so we can’t wait to watch them battle it out!
In preparation for season
10, we’re taking a look back at 10 of our favorite contestants from Project Runway’s past. Which is your fave?
Christian Siriano – There’s no better way to describe this season 4 winner other than his
famous catchphrase word: Fierce!
Uli – We
loved how her cool, relaxed vibe was shown by her choices of light, flowy
fabrics. We could easily wear some of her maxi dresses to the beach!
– This self-taught designer may not have won over the judges in season 8, but
we were blown away by his bold designs.
– With his quirky, upbeat personality and hilarious giggle, Chris was the most
hilarious season 4 contestant.
Laura Bennett – True, she may have been stuck up and tight, but her style was simply
Jay McCarroll – He was the life of the party, and his funky styles totally matched
his outgoing personality.
Kenley Collins – She may look like a sweetie but she could deliver some pretty nasty
quips. Regardless, the Zooey Deschanel lookalike stood out to us.
Anya Ayoung Chee – We were super impressed with the quick thinking and creative designs
of this season 9 winner and fan favorite, especially since she just learned to
sew a few months before the show!
Jay Nicolas Sario – He only placed 4th in season 7, but we were stunned by his
Mychael Knight – We loved how he incorporated his hip hop background into his designs.
Be sure to tune in to a new
season of Project Runway July 19 at 9
p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
