Austin Scarlett's corn husk dress
(season 1, episode 1)
The prim contestant with a penchant for neck scarves won the very first challenge of the very first season with a dress made out of corn husks bought at New York supermarket chain Gristedes. The husks did wilt overnight in the workroom. But not even a little case of the day-olds could derail Austin's vision.
Jay McCarroll's Chrysler Building dress
(season 1, episode 3)
Season 1's loud-mouthed champ never actually won any of the pre-Fashion Week challenges. And while the judges didn't think this silky, Chrysler Building-inspired number was quite right for that week's client, Banana Republic, we love it for its edgy sophistication.
Kara Saun's postal uniform
(season 1, episode
For her fourth win, season 1's early front-runner (but ultimate second-placer) managed to turn a dowdy civil servant's uniform into a chic, modern ensemble that yes, would work perfectly in rain, sleet, or snow.
Austin Scarlett's Grammy dress
(season 1, episode 9)
The task? Design a dress for Access Hollywood reporter Nancy O'Dell to wear to the Grammys. The flowing gown that Austin sent down the runway was gorgeous, sexy, and feminine. Yet somehow, season 1 villain Wendy Pepper's short orange minidress took top marks. Four years later, we'd still opt for Austin's colorful showstopper any day.
Santino Rice's grey dress
(season 2, episode 5)
Season 2's resident pot-stirrer designed his share of outré doozies (paging the turkey-feathered ice-skating costume!), but his gunmetal gray party dress was so pitch-perfect it even promised to make guest judge Nicki Hilton look elegant. The flowing skirt paired with the braided top was pure sophistication. And the judges agreed.
Daniel Vosovic's flower power ensemble
(season 2, episode
For a challenge that asked the designers to snap photos around Manhattan and then create an outfit inspired by those pictures, the mild-mannered Daniel V. captured both the delicate bulbousness of a flower and the crispness of its stem. The judges rightly rewarded him.
Chloe Dao's makeover of Nick Verreos
(season 2, episode 10)
The petite Texan (and ultimate season 2 champ) beat out her competitors that week by outfitting fellow designer Nick Verreos in a sharp, pinstriped trouser-and-vest ensemble offset with a smart pink shirt. Nick never looked more handsome. (Unfortunately, he didn't deliver nearly as well with his own design: His ill-fitting suit for Daniel V. earned him a ticket home.)
