Jeffrey Wins Project Runway! Do You Agree With The Judges?

10/19/2006 at 02:00 AM ET

It’s all over for Season 3, and Jeffrey has been named the winner of Project Runway. But whose collection did you think brought down the house at Olympus Fashion week? Did you too love Jeffrey’s Japanese inspired punk polka-dots and stripes (second from right)? Or are you dying for Laura’s elegant black gowns, feathers and beads included (right)? Lusting after Uli’s safari-inspired dresses and teeny bikinis (left)? Or are you on the prowl for Michael’s tiger prints and sexy satin shorts (second from left)? Tell us: whose collection did you like best? Were the judges right in picking Jeffrey as the winner?

HE LOOKS SO DIRTY….YUCK….GOODBYE PROJECT RUNWAY I DO NOT BELIEVE IT IS A FAIR SHOW NOW….BYE BYE…

Drama people, then don’t watch the show ever again… do you think that they care??? It’s not the end of the world and it’s not some big conspiracy either. The judges liked Jeffrey’s collection the best so they made him the winner. Get over it already.

I THINK THAT MICHEAL SHOULD HAVE WON!!!!! JEFFERY SHOULD HAVE NOT WON AND YES,SHOULD HAVE BEEN GONE ALONG TIME AGO. WHAT WERE YOU THINKING HIEDI!!!!!

NO WAY!!! Not a chance in H E Double L would I wear ANYTHING that man designed. He should have been the last person they considered. I loved Uli’s collection for everyday wear, and I loved Laura’s collection for evening wear. They had beautiful, wonderful designs. Designs I would wear. I look forward to seeing both of their designs in stores and boutiques.

The worst and most obnoxious designer won?? I’m not watching this show anymore. Obviously, the whole thing was rigged. Waste of time to watch. Rather watch reruns of Friends.

I am appalled that Jeffrey won. His collection is just as much one-dimensional as Laura’s. Laura or Uli should have won. I have been a die-hard fan, but not sure if I will watch any more seasons based on this decision.

Jeffrey completly deserves to win! He was very innovative and stylish. Yes, some of his designs can’t be worn by the average woman, but then again most designers that are high fashion and show at bryant park can’t be worn by everyone anyways. As for Uli, yes her designs were pretty, but i get the feeling that she may have gotten her bone look from a previous project runway contestant that also came from Miami. Do you all remember Alexandra Vidal? I believe she was in season 1. Well she is selling at all the boutiques in Miami and if you look at her clothes she has dresses that are very similar to Uli’s that have been out for sale for about 2 years now. I think that Jeffrey will succeed, he’s pationate and out of the 3 winners PR has had he seems to be the one who wanted it most. Chloe Dao from last season said she just wanted to stay doing what she was last year and I’m still waiting for Jay to do something big.

I can’t believe that the judges picked Jeffrey! If Heidi Klum wore Jeffrey’s green striped dress, she would look like a huge watermelon. AWFUL! I would never wear anything that Jeffrey designed and I thought the premises was what women wanted to wear. I hope to see Uli’s designs in the stores and affordable that everyone could wear them. Laura’s designs wear absolutely beautiful and elegant. Michael’s show was a disappointment but through the season his designs and attitude were charming.

The decision to name Jeffery the winner reinforces the concept that what is truly “fashionable” is not what appeals to most women, is not truly wearable for most women who must function on a daily basis without fainting, and is not what will make most people feel comfortable and good about themselves.

The most telling episode this season for me was when the designers were completely stumped trying to design for the mothers — a segment of women size and style representative of most people who buy off-the-rack. How can you be a good designer when you cannot come up with a beautiful, elegant design for the typical female form? The models on the runway last night were shockingly thin — they might save a great deal of cash putting these designs on very tall sticks and pony-walking them down the runway via strings. At least then it would be clear to viewers that we are not expected to actually wear these designs ourselves.

Who had the collection that was elegant, potentially complimentary to a range of human body styles, appropriate for a wide segment of ages, beautiful and elegant yet approachable for those with disposable income? Laura and Uli were the winners. Laura has the elegant market nicely covered (the bead work was astonishing and the fabrics sumptuous) and Uli won for the resort/casual chic market (covers, yet compliments the body and wow do those pieces have amazing movement!). Jeffery obviously won the heart of those “in the know.” Michael had some nice designs early on but while Jeffery’s design was for rocker chicks, Michael’s were for well-clad hookers.

Perhaps next season the judges will acknowledge that the winner will not be judged on what will appeal to most women interested in looking good while functioning in their lives — but what is interesting to the fashion industry as art for art’s sake.
