Two models from America's Next Top Model were walking in the final shows: Bianca Golden from Cycle 9 and Dani Evans Cycle 6 Winner.
Order the top three finished:
Being Leanne's model and wearing one of her looks on the final runway Tia wins a spread in Elle magazine.
Leanne is the grand prize winner of season 5.
Kenley and Korto were eliminated.
The order for the final runway was Kenley, Korto and then Leanne.
This was the first time that mentor Tim Gunn served as a Guest Judge in the final runway show. But in Project Runway's sister shows Project Runway Canada and Project Catwalk, the designers' mentor were regularly the finale's Guest Judge despite the seeming conflict of interest in having them fulfill those dual roles.
Leanne: Kenley's line looks really Holly Hobby. It's just like, you know, somebody's child's been like painting all over Kenley's collection! It looks really really amateurish.
Kenley: This is the biggest day of my life, I'm about to show the world who I am as a designer. Last year I snuck into the tents and got kicked out right away.
Michael Kors: (to Leanne) I'm just nervous that you're gonna be known as the queen of the petals. You're gonna be Petals Marshall, which sounds like a stripper, not a designer.
Both Leanne's and Kenley's runway music selections were created by their boyfriends.
