PROJECT RUNWAY WINNER, Gretchen Jones Interview, Only Designer Who Deserved to Win?

The Project Runway season finale, crowned Gretchen Jones as the new winner. Not a fan favorite, tired Michael Kors and Nina decided that Mondo Guerra was too youthful and Andy South was too wild to win the $100k prize. Translation, Mondo and Andy were too unique and fresh to represent the Project Runway brand. Instead we went with a more dull and granola approach to our endorsed fashion collection, so we chose Gretchen Jones. We are bringing the Grateful Dead back, 2010 style.

In a new interview, when Gretchen Jones was asked if she was surprised that she won, she said: “no not at all”. In fact, our egotistical brat had the audacity to say she was the only designer who DESERVED to win the latest season of the show. UGH! I wonder if Tim Gunn felt the same way? The Project Runway host this season that had no problem showing his disdain for the Oregon designer. I think Gretchen needs to hire a PR person fast, otherwise she’s going to have a major problem with her brand image.

In Gretchen Jones design collection Moth Love, she has a very 70’s style to her collection. On her web site it says,  “Based on minimal and conceptual art principles, MothLove is ethereal and sexy in its very simplicity.Bohemian in lifestyle and design, Jones aims to create collections that beg to be worn and fallen in love with”. The designs on her web site are much more attractive than what was shown at Mercedes Fashion Week. Although, I think the designs could only be worn by woman who are incredibly slender like Gretchen. No curvy girls allowed.

What Astrochicks found most amusing on the Moth Love web site, was Gretchen Jones bio. She  had the following written: “You can find Gretchen working on a her record collection, daydreaming about rides on a 67′ BMW R60/2 600, contemplating the metaphysical, playing with her long hair, wearing pretty lingerie, working too late, trying to eat healthy and somehow, always wishing she was sun bathing by the river…Mostly in her mind, and sometimes outside of her studio.” LOL!!! Oh please…

Astrologically, Gretchen Jones faces some challenges over the next two years. Born under the astrology sign of Capricorn, Saturn in Libra will square her Sun. This represents a challenging period faced with personal disagreements and feeling misunderstood. Mars in Libra square her Sun makes her insecure, which would explain her bashing of Michael Costello. Plain and simple, she was jealous.  

Another astrologer has an interesting take on our Project Runway girl, you can view it here. I think Gretchen Jones is in for a rude awakening if she moves to New York.  The Big Apple isn’t really tolerant of big egos, unless maybe your Madonna or Lady Gaga. For Gretchen Jones, she will be just a small fish in a big sea. Her best bet would be to find a mentor, who will help guide her through the design process and help find her voice. Otherwise, she may find out she’s only legend in her own mind. Stay tuned.

  1. I’m tired of all of the cracks about Gretchen and Hippies and now insults to The Grateful Dead. Gretchen is NOT a hippy and she’s certainly not a bohemian no matter how much she uses the word. Gretchen is nothing more than one spoiled brat who thinks that the universe was ordered to orbit around her which I can guaranty you is counter to anything that the Grateful Dead believed in. I can well imagine the type of song that The Dead might have penned about Ms It’s all About Me. Believe me this snot nosed little self indulged individual knows nothing about hippies and the 60’s.

  2. DebLee, Totally agree. Her junk was just that junk. I grew up in the 60’s this junk by Wretchen the snot nosed hypocrit who as you said so elequently stated thinks the universe was ordered to orbit around her has absolutely no talent. Cannot stand this self absorbed piece of rubbish. No way no how should she have won this competition. I believe she won for the simple fact that she posed no competition whats so ever to Michael Kors. In fact he stole one of Michael Costello’s designs, altered in a very unflattering way and put his name on it. Shame Shame Shame. PR needs to remove Michael Kors and Nina Garcia for that matter as judges. I for one will never watch again until that happens. I took all clothing that I had in my closet by Michael Kors and donated them to the local mission. Will never purchase clothes by Michael Kors again.

  3. I believe Mondo was the clear winner, but I feel kinda bad for Gretchen. Sure she was “bossy”, but was she really that bad? I don’t know her personally… Nina Garcia and Michael Kors deserve any backlash.

  4. Nina and Michael spent the entire season scolding designers for not “taking risks” and for lacking originality and flare. Then in the end they reject the most original, dynamic, and exciting collection in favor of an almost aggressively dull bunch of mud-colored outfits. There must be more to it than we’re being told.

  5. AstroChicks, I love you. I truly do.

    The last part where you quote her bio…it is so classic Gretchen.

    Here’s the good part…since the PR fans have made their outrage known throughout the internet and elsewhere, posts have shown up on message boards, using different names, but always with the same syrupy, emesis-basin-grabbing, Gretchen-flagellating absurdity phrases and wording.

    Honestly, some of them are like reading press releases.

    I also belief she won’t last in NYC. NYC has the best, and the worst, of everything. She’s emotionally fragile. Her design skills couldn’t support her in Portland…

    I’m a Capricorn, as well (Sun, Mercury, Moon). Saturn squares are always no big deal to me. They are kind of comforting because I know how the world is for awhile–it’s like I am all the time. The outer-planet transit that knocked me for a loop was Neptune. I came out a different person afterwords.

    So this Saturn transit may just straighten things out so she can deal with them.

    Anyway, love the website, loved the article.

  6. P.S. Just looked at GJ’s chart. Well, that Neptune is right there next to her Sun. No wonder she has issues. No wonder she is so delusional. No wonder she is so emotionally fragile.

    Being uber-Capricorn, my Neptune transit kicked my kiester but good. I can’t imagine living with it every day. My husband has Neptune conjunct Sun in Libra, and Saturn transits lay him out.

    I always hate it when I find out some evil person is a Capricorn (and they usually are). But, when I think about it, although what they did was wrong, the reasoning behind it was, if nothing else, practical and moving towards a goal.

    I agree with you. I don’t think she will do well in NYC at all. If I cared enough, I’d look to where she’s going to be at the time of her next Saturn-Sun transit. I think it could be prophetic as to what is going to happen in-between now and then.

  7. Has anyone seen the new YouTube video produced by Marie Claire for Gretchen? She tries to poke fun at herself since everyone dislikes her so much.

    Thanks for your insight Morgaine. If she does move to NYC, I see her moving back to Portland or maybe her home state Colorado. I think if she works under another designers name, she will be more successful.

    She has a few hard lessons to learn but I think Gretchen will be a better person for it in the end.
