Christian Siriano wins Project Runway 4

Fashion Week audience favorite Christian Siriano won Project Runway 4, becoming the series’ youngest winner at 21. He won $100,000, a car, and other prizes–and found a fan in guest judge Victoria Beckham, who told him, “I’m such a fan. You are so talented, and I would be honored to wear any piece of your clothing.”

The first of the finalists to be eliminated was Jillian Lewis, and she was shocked, saying, “I was so disappointed and so let down.” Heidi Klum told her, “You stepped outside your comfort zone, and created a youthful, beautiful and feminine collection.”

Heidi deemed Rami Kashou’s garments to be “a stunning, exquisitely crafted collection that proved that you were the enormous talent we always knew you were.” But neither was enough to beat Christian’s “drama and creativity well beyond [his] 21 years.”

Before the final runway show, Tim Gunn praised the designers. “I have never been presented with a season of ‘Project Runway’ where the work has been at this high a level and so consistently,” he said. “So just trust that you are superb — and you are, and you’re an inspiration for me.”
