PROJECT RUNWAY WINNER, Mondo Guerra Interview Not Happy Gretchen Jones Won!

The Project Runway season finale was definitely a show shocker. Mondo Guerra, Andy South and Granola Gretchen Jones were selected as the three fabulous designers to walk the cat walk at Mercedes Fashion Week. Celebrity guest judge Jessica Simpson,  provided Heidi and the gang her personal opinion on who should be crowned Project Runway. Who was the winner, Gretchen Jones! UGH!

Going into the competition, Mondo Guerra was considered the front runner not only by fashion critics but Project Runway fans as well. Michael Costello the week before, had a heartbreaking exit, after being the last person to be eliminated before fashion week.   Fans were shocked that Gretchen Jones wasn’t kicked to the curb after showing her underwhelming and hideous safari designs.  Unfortunately, Michael Kors and Nina thought she was “more commercial.” Maybe they should think of retiring.

Last night, the Project Runway finale for Astrochicks was disappointing. If you read previous fashion critic and blog commentary from New York fashion week, NO ONE liked Gretchen Jones designs, and everyone loved Mondo Guerra. Sadly, the stars were not aligned for our fierce designer from Denver, Colorado. Instead, they chose Granola Gretchen from Portland, Oregon. Not only is she a crappy designer, the way she treated Michael Costello was horrendous. I think she’s a bully, with a bad attitude and a yucky personality to match. Even Mondo Guerra agreed, in his Project Runway interview he said: “I should have won over Gretchen Jones”. We couldn’t agree more.

Is Astrochicks biased? Yes we are and proud of it. Next season, Lifetime and Project Runway should really think about replacing Michael Kors and Nina as judges. Or at least add one more judge, who has a more youthful opinion. Also, they should add a Project Runway fan vote to the mix, since we are the ones buying the clothes not them. To say that Mondo Guerra is “too youthful” is ridiculous. I could see his clothes grace any fashion rack at Macy’s, Bloomingdales, or BeBe’s. For Gretchen Jones, I really don’t see the commercial appeal with this design collection. Maybe a different one but definitely not what was shown at Mercedes Fashion Week.

Astrologically, Mondo Guerra a Gemini, still has a very successful career ahead of him. Maybe he can design a purse collection for Jessica Simpson or I could definitely see Macy’s buying his design collection for stores? Either way, I wish Mondo Guerra, Andy South and EVEN Gretchen Jones the best. For Project Runway, I’m still disappointed who won but a faithful fan, I will watch again next season. You can view all the designers finall collections here. Enjoy!

  1. I guess for Nina and Michael the white girl wins over the Mexican and the Asian Guy I wonder! You had to be real blind to see Gretchen design of panties on the runway compared to the details that were both in Mondo and Andy’s Collection the only honest person there was Jessica Simpson Heidi only played a part to show a little opposition but it was all fake.

  2. Such a Pathetic Outcome. I will not even say retchid gretchid won because her clothes were so hideous…they are as vapid as she is..dull in color, totally lacking in imagination and totally dowdy. I am well over 40 and never in my entire life would I have worn nor would I wear her heap of garbage. Her designs were as ugly as was her attitude and arrogance.

    Mondo should have won. Andy would also have been acceptable and Michael C should have been in the finale…I’ll be they didn’t want him in the finale because he would have been great. Mondo, Andy and Michael C won challenges and I believe Mondo won more than retchid gretchid.

    This was a travesty and unfortunate for Heidi.

    If I were Heidi I would be wondering why I don’t have influence in my own show. If it really was a tie in judging, Heidi should have had the tiebreaking opinion. Guess she doesn’t really have any power here.

    kors and garcia were ridiculous need i say more.

    Tim Gunn..still a Star and a Gentleman

    Why not let Retchid Gretchid know how awful her rags are…she has a company called MothLove…guess that cause only moths will like them and hopefully eat them up before they foul up the landscape..you can call or email her
    MothLove Headquarters and Sales Information
    Designer/Director
    Gretchen Jones
    gretchen@mothlove.com

    I am still cleaning up the puke from having to endure retchid gretchid and the horror that she created both in fabric and with her nasty soul.

  3. I’ll put it like this; I’m in my 50′s and loved Mondo’s and Andy’s clothes and would wear them. Project runway is an avenue for unknown designers to get their name out there. Gretchen should have not won!!!!! Unexciting, boring and just plain…. Had Nina or Michael lost their minds? Oh no Nina is having a baby and needs to what dress like everyone else? Michael should know better, but he has gone all the way commercial. New judges are needed,mix it up with the young, middle, and the old age, also people that know about designing and sewing.

  4. I totally agree with everyones comments. What were they thinking? The judges should be a mix of young and old, designers, creative directors, and a fan vote. I really don’t think Gretchen’s designs were unique. Mondo and Andy definitely had a voice and I loved Michael Costello. Oh well, it will be interesting to see where she is a few years from now.

  5. I agree with astrochicks! But I will go even farther – I’m not watching project runway after this pick. I’m through with the show.

  6. The judges have lost their minds. I don’t think they realize what a huge blunder this is. They have ruined the show’s credibility. No way are granny pannies and ugly, depressing prints the next big thing in fashion. Please, enough of the Portland aesthetic.

    We want color and texture and fun!

    Remember Uli from a few seasons ago? Her beautiful clothes were vibrant and colorful, but Michael Kors and Nina made lots of snide remarks about them. They want women to wear depressing garb that doesn’t flatter a woman’s body. God forbid women should wear color!

    The three finalists should have been Mondo, Andy and Michael C!

    They don’t get Mondo and they never will! He is light years ahead of tired Michael Kors and Nina Garcia.

  7. Were to start, ‎”"NINA G.”"
    YOU TRULY NEED HELP WITH YOUR OWN FASHION SENSE! LET ALONE TELLING AND JUDGING OTHERS CREATIONS! YOU ARE NOT INSIGHTFUL & TRENDY AS YOU BELIEVE, YOU ARE DATED, JADED AND JUST PLAIN WRONG! YOU BITCHED ABOUT MICHAEL COSTELLO ONLY SHOWING YOU BROWN LOOKS, THEN YOU GOT A WHOLE LINE OF THEM FROM GRETCHEN, BUT TH…ATS NOT THE FIRST BIG SCREW UP YOU HAVE MADE ON PROJECT RUNWAY AND I’M SURE IT WON’T BE THE LAST! (NO SURPRISE) BUT WHAT IS SURPISING IS YOU STILL HAVE A JOB! (AT MARIE CLAIRE & PROJECT RUNWAY) ???
    Audience voting next year of forget project runway, Gretchen you suck, Go Michael Costello and Mondo!!!!!

  8. I felt the judges opinion was SPOT ON. Mondo is an amazing designer but, his collecton was a bit junior. Gretchen makes sustainable clothing from local products–THATS whats in now. Mondo is unique on the show, but not in fashion. his designs are wild as are alot of other designers. I think the “Chinese/Mexican” analog is a great point. Very hard to decide. I just think that although some people prefer Mondo, they should not HATE Gretchen. I mean really, if you have so much HATE toward a designer that you completely refuse to watch the show, maybe your interest in fasion is less than your interest in gossip!

  9. Mondo is a true artist. What was original or exciting about gretchen’s designs? 0. Mondo was right on. And the show stopper polka dot dress was kick ass! I fear racism plain and simple. When Mondo mentioned his Mexican heritage and how important it was to him, pozer Garcia Z(Columbian notoriously anti mexican people) looked like she was going to be sick. even my wife who is so removed from thos kind of thoughts agreed with me that it influenced her someway. shame on nina garcia.

  10. I don’t want to watch this show again. I am 39 years old and Gretchen’s clothes are way too old ladyish for me! Actually, I don’t ever think I’ll be old enough to wear her clothes! Ever!
    Mondo is the winner in my eyes!

  11. OMG!!! Like anyone intheir right mind is going outside in those UGLY granny pant diapers and UGLY brown clothes. BIZARRE!!!!!!!!

  12. After a few episodes, I predicted Gretchen and Mondo going to Fashion Week. Andy was a favorite too, but I thought his being a bit over the top would get him eliminated. Thankfully, he was there too.
    Seriously, though…GRETCHEN? Disappointed…? Absolutely! She should have been eliminated after the team challenge. She manipulated the team to put a boring mess on the runway then, and she (alone) put a boring mess on the runway for the finale.
    I agree with vavabroom. Uli should have won that season over wutz-his-face. This, too, was a Project Runway booboo. Take a stand, Heidi!

  13. I’m in my late 40s and I LOVED Mondo’s clothes, really liked Andy’s. Gretchen’s were monotonous and shapeless – I could see wearing them around the house like a caftan (if I wore that sort of thing!). I didn’t even like those stupid pants with the leatherette on the inside of the legs – it all looked contrived.

    So…where can I buy Mondo’s stuff?

  14. I wanted to like Gretchen on a personal level, she’s from Portland, Oregon like me. It was her attitude and bullying of Michael Costello that I found so ugly. I thought she was smug and attitude was out of control.

    On her design look, it reminds me of clothes you would find in vintage shops and used clothing stores on Hawthorne. It didn’t seem original, it felt very 80′s and granola. The fabric looked inexpensive and not something personally I would ever wear.

    Mondo may have a more junior style, which would mean it would be more commercial. Why not a designer for younger women. Why does it have to be dowdy?

    They need to add some new judges, someone who is willing to go toe to toe with Michael and Nina. Since Project Runway left Bravo, it seems to have lost it voice, or the show has gotten meaner.

    Just my opinion, did not like Gretchen’s designs or a personal level. Maybe she got a bad edit but in interviews she says she wasn’t surprised to win. She thought she was the only person who made sense to win. Not humble either.

  15. I just find it funny that the only reason Gretcen won, because she was more commercial, was the EXACT reason why Emillio DIDN’T win last season…because he was TOO commercial! I was very surprised that Mondo didn’t win…I loved him all season and I wish him the very best!

  16. I read on another site, what I believe is the truth: the Lifetime network insisted on a female for the win. What else could explain Gretchen’s old lady’s safari outfits over Mondo’s creations? Mondo, you were ROBBED!
