Project Runway winner, Leanne Marshall, has unveiled her collection for Bluefly and it looks just as yummy as her final PR collection. Her femme, yet futuristic cuts, are amazing and I love the vibrant hues of pink, purple, and blue. Do you hear the whispers? That majestic tiered skirt is calling my name. Not only is this collection beautiful, it's eco-friendly as well — awesome. Leanne's creations, priced from $98 to $990, will be available July 8 at www.Bluefly.com/leanne.

Cities and Skylines. That's what Project Runway season five winner Leanne Marshall calls her Fall '09 collection. "This collection was inspired by the repetitive skyline of my new home-base, New York City, and the fantasy of glamour that one has when moving to a big metropolis," she explains on her website. Just as with the Spring line she created for the show, I'm once again thoroughly impressed. There was a reason she stood out to the judges and that reason is her one-of-a-kind vision, gorgeous tiered details, perfect asymmetry, and use of striking colors. I am especially smitten with her use of gray and gold — one of my favorite Fall combos.
Leanimal, My Favorite Project Runway Winner to Date I loved winner Leanne Marshall's clothes more than I have ever loved anything produced on reality TV. Almost everything she makes is lovely, feminine, and modern — the kind of pieces that manage to seem timeless and of-the-moment all at the same time.Comments
Inspired: Project Runway Winner Leanne Marshall's Collection I'm totally infatuated with Project Runway season five winner Leanne Marshall's final collection. I loved how the palette was so restrained, just neutrals and a gorgeous turquoise; it really let the sculptural shape of the clothes shine.
I'm totally infatuated with Project Runway season five winner Leanne Marshall's final collection. I loved how the palette was so restrained, just neutrals and a gorgeous turquoise; it really let the sculptural shape of the clothes shine. And although the collection did have an architectural quality, the pieces were still full of movement, with pleats that fluttered like a flock of birds bursting into the air.
I thought I'd see if I could capture the essence of the collection with a few home furnishings, and as usual, I was able to come up with some inspired finds. Not only did I discover a range of products in the same palette, but I also came across a handful of pieces with similar sculptural pleats, folds, and curves. To see for yourself, read more
Now that Project Runway has closed out its fifth season by naming a new winner, it seems like a good time to look back on the Runway champions of past and present. Some (Christian Siriano) have truly embraced their 15 minutes in the spotlight; others (Chloe Dao) have kept somewhat of a lower profile. While we're waiting to see how Leanne uses her newfound fame, tell me: Which of Project Runway's five winners has been your favorite?
Some of you restrained yourselves when I shared the final Project Runway collections in September. Then, it was still six designers in the running, so I witnessed final collections by Joe, Jerell, Suede, Kenley, Korto, and Leanne. I still don't understand why this isn't planned better. I firmly believe only the final three should show at the tents. Plus, it's a waste of money. Anyway, another Project Runway has come and gone and now you can view them all! And, you can buy them all! While we await the decision on the future of next season, I want to share what I then observed about the winner's collection. I'm not one to toot my own horn, but I had a feeling Leanne would win. Last night, Kenley's collection wowed me over once again and for a second I thought she might win. Alas, a bad attitude and unoriginality spoiled Kenley's chance.
Here's what I thought about Leanne's collection right after I saw it — nothing has changed. It was fresh, innovative, and gorgeous.
Funny how the six collections gradually got better. I think Leanne is going to win. Her collection was as stellar as any of the professional collections from the week. It was conceptual, beautiful, and theatrical. Leanne claimed she "lost a million hours of sleep" over it, and it showed. Sculptural skirts, dresses, and gowns floated down the runway to the beat of a neutral, cool palette. The craftsmanship was expert and you could just feel the adoration in the air. I would wear the ivory off-shoulder top and turquoise petal skirt and the ivory and beige corset mini dress in a heartbeat. And her modern wedding dress blew Suede's off the (project) runway.

Project Runway's first all-female final three took to the catwalk tonight, as Korto, Leanne, and Kenley presented their final collections. Now, the fifth Runway winner has been revealed. Did the right person walk away with the title and the cash? Or was this a grave miscarriage of justice? I'll have more thoughts in the morning (update: it's here!), but for now, vote here (and watch out for spoilers in the comments)!
