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?

What is the name of the song that is playing durying Jeffery’s showing?

Jeffrey’s clothing is neither innovative nor beautiful–it’s Hot Topic clothing with better fabrics. He won b/c he’s the biggest personality and “rock star” clothing is so hot right now. His outsize personality gets a lot of attention which is good for ratings which is good for marketing which is good for $. No woman over a size zero could wear his clothing, and no woman not stuck in arrested development would want to dress like a girl who hang out at the mall.

this is madness! Laura with her consistency and gorgeous craftsmanship, or Uli with her real world, flowy, everyday woman appeal would have been a much better decision, if for no other reason than jeff ‘lost’ his receipts and STILL went over budget! it’s like they rewarded him for breaking the rules. i was totally over it at that moment! i adore the show, and i watch every episode, but i have to say jeffrey’s victory turned me off just a bit. he’s a rock star costume designer for crying out loud; and let’s focus, the whole time they were back at parsons it seemed to be in Uli’s favor, and then heidi was all, “congratulations… JEFFREY” ???!!! yeah…. crazy stuff.


Oh no! Who is going to get use out of Jeffrey’s fashions. They may be different, but attractive or practical? No way! Uli deserved the win hands down. I am actively seeking one of her dresses now. I love all of her work. If you noticed, Jeffrey even attempted to steal one of her looks and all of the judges agreed it didn’t come close to working. Uli, you are the real winner!

Well, I want to think the judges for making sure I will never watch Project Runway again. I will get back to my books and talking to friends. My friend and I cannot believe they thought Jeffrey was so good. He is rude, vulgar, disrespectful to women and an overall jerk. Uli’s collection was the best as well as Laura’s was excellent work. Jeffrey’s look was from the back 40 with scraps of material and all over the place. What a major disappointment. How long has it been since the judges met real people??????

Jeffrey was on the “chopping block” several times this season, while Michael, Uli, and Laura were each there once. His treatment of Angela’s mother is a precursor of his treatment of future clients. He had at least two pieces in his Bryant Park collection that the judges did NOT like. I, along with the judges, were disappointed with Michael’s collection – which left quite a bit to be desired. However, Uli’s and Laura’s collections were described by the judges as impeccable, perfect for every woman, etc. Therefore, HOW DID JEFFREY WIN?

I hope to see Uli, Michael, and Laura going on to bigger and better things. They all have an incredibly gorgeous design esthetic and are gifted, talented seamstresses/taylors.

It was really close between Jeffrey & Uli … I thought Uli’s collection was AMAZING .. so chic, yet fun .. I’d wear it. BUT THEN AGAIN .. Jeffrey’s was by far the most innovative. And ppl forget that high fashion in not necessarily for the every-woman. Look at haute couture! Am happy for Jeffrey .. he really did take the most risks & definitely wowed me. GO JEFFREYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!! PR made the right decision .. their top two were just right!! PS: Laura’s collection was beyond beautiful; red carpet material .. but really not “new”. Michael’s entire collection just BOMBED .. badly. Love the guy, but holy geez, what happened there???!!!!

ok, well i haven’t seen the show yet. it’s tivo’d. BUT i will say that i will think long and hard before i watch next season’s PR, b/c obviously they had this year so SCRIPTED that it is all a bunch of bs, just like other reality shows. thanks a lot for the huge disappointment heidi & co.!!!!! :(

Ack. Jeffrey’s was by far the worst of all four. What is up with Nina? She is so jealous of Laura she couldn’t even recognize the best collection. I think I’m done with Project Runway until they get new judges. Nina has to be out.

Denise on

I am happy Jeffrey won. I loved Michael but thought his final collection looked cheap. Lauras dresses were nice but pretty much just evening wear. Ulis collection was gorgeous but I loved Jeffrey’s the most. Loved his different pieces and fabrics.

Congrats Jeffrey!!!
