This week’s episode of Project Runway offered the winner of the challenge the most incredible prize ever offered on Project Runway. The winning look would be worn by Heidi Klum on the cover of the April issue of Marie Claire magazine. WOW!

The magazine’s editor in chief, Joanna Coles gave them some very important rules to follow in their designs:

  • No black
  • No patterns
  • No light colors
  • All detail above the waist
  • Stay away from pants

So of course, half of them created beige, black or patterned outfits and there were both pants and shorts.

The quotes of the night was from Joanna Coles, who told this to Anna:

It’s like three ingredients in a dish that leave you feeling slightly nauseous.

And she responded to Janeane saying that her garment was inspired by the ocean:

I’m not getting the beach and the sea reference. Unless it’s a sort of polluted sea with plastic bottles in it. [OUCH!]

The garments loved the most by the judges all were in vibrant colors. The top three looks were those of Ben, Anthony & Emilio. The winning look was that of Anthony.

I liked his look the best and love his personality. So it was great to see him win! His short bright teal dress with the ruffles on the front was beautiful and perfect for Heidi.

The worst looks were those of Mila, Anna & Janeane. Anna’s strange short outfit was just too far off the mark and she was eliminated.

What did you think of the designs for this challenge? Were you happy that Anthony won? Who did you expect to go home? Let us know!
