gretchen-heidiOct 29, (THAINDIAN NEWS) In what was the most highly anticipated season finale in recent times, The Project Runway finale had some big starry surprises in store for the fans. Pop star and fashion icon Jessica Simpson was seen as the guest judge for the finale and Gretchen Jones was adjudged the winner of the season. Though most of the experts had predicted that Mondo Guerra would be the obvious choice of the judges in the finale but Gretchen Jones stole the show with her ‘Hippie-Hooker’ collection in the finale.

Though Gretchen Jones came under heavy criticism in the middle of the season after her splendid start, she managed to make a comeback in the finale. Heidi Klum and Jessica Simpson, however, were seen bonding over a polka dot dress by Mondo Guerra. Andy South, who was also one of the finalists completely lost his way in the finale where he came up with a rather dull collection that had mostly grays and dull greens. Though some feel that the collection by Mondo Guerra was full of color, happiness and culture, the bohemian chic collection by Gretchen Jones did leave a stronger impact on the judges.

Gretchen Jones now walks away with $100,000 from L’Oreal Paris for creating her own line and a $50,000 suite from HP to design her own stuff. She will also have her own fashion spread in the Marie Claire magazine and also sell her collection on Piperlime. The model who donned her collection in the final also won $25,000 from L’Oreal and will also be seen on the spread by Gretchen Jones in Marie Claire.
