Jessica Simpson guest judging Project Runway finale; runway show was today

Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica star Jessica Simpson is the guest judge for Project Runway 8‘s finale runway show, which took place today at New York Fashion Week.

At the show, 10 of the 17 designers presented collections. Yes, just like last season, the dream of presenting at Fashion Week is awarded to a majority of the contestants, even if they have no chance of winning the show because they were eliminated. Decoy collections are nothing new, but the number of them is definitely increasing.

The AP reports that the reality competition’s runway show “was one of the big events on the day’s roster at Lincoln Center, the new home for the seasonal fashion previews.” Heidi Klum told the crowd, “I have never gotten so emotional or attached to the designers.”
