Ranking Project Runway Designers #4 [169-180]


Hey, y'all! So I'm back with the next post in my series ranking all of the Project Runway designers! As I said in the last post, this is a new 18 post series on my blog, with each post consisting of the next 12 designers. 

Here's my disclaimer once again: Any and all comments are my opinions on them based on the way they presented themselves on the show (and of course, the way the show was edited) and in no way is a reflection of how they are in real life. The way a contestant presents themself on a show, combined with the editing of the show, is not necessarily the way they are outside of the show, and because I don't know these people personally, I can only go based off of the way they were portrayed on the show. 

Also, I feel like this is a little obvious, but I'll go ahead and say it anyway. If you don't want to be spoiled for what happens in the show or what order people go home, don't read any further. Because I will mention what place the person got. And I'll be talking about All-Stars placings too, if applicable, so just bear that in mind before continuing to read on. So let's just jump right into the next 12 on the list.

180. Kahindo Mateene
Season 12- 15th Place

Very simply, Kahindo's designs weren't very great, and she didn't listen when people tried to tell her that she wasn't working on something very successful. I didn't like her designs, and I didn't really like her.


179. Cindy Marlatt
Season 11- 14th Place

I don't have a ton to say about Cindy. I just wasn't a fan of her or her designs! I thought that she was a pretty weak designer with a pretty weak personality. She didn't stand out, and her designs weren't that great. 


178. Jake Wall
Season 14- 10th Place (Withdrew)

I didn't really like him right out of the gate. He was primarily a menswear designer, but didn't seem to make very good womenswear. It was very basic and boring. And then, on top of that, he was super full of himself. And then he quit because of... his dog? Just... no.


177. Angela Sum
Season 13- 15th Place

I feel like Angela is the antithesis of everything that I am. She was super-emotional, really uptight, and a perfectionist. She basically fell apart at the drop of a hat. I just didn't like her, and I thought her designs were really boring.


176. Carrie Sleutskaya
Season 13- 15th Place

Her aesthetic seemed cool, but she was definitely really difficult to work with and was a bit of a jerk to most of the people that she was competing against.


175. Victorya Hong
Season 4- 7th Place

Unlike most of the people on this list, Victorya wasn't a complete jerk who was just really mean and designed terrible clothes. Yes, she was really controlling and had a tendency to be harsh, but overall she wasn't too bad. She's just totally not my type of person. Complete type A. Yikes.


174. Danielle Everine
Season 9- 12th Place

At first, I didn't really like her because she was just really quiet and had this really boring aesthetic. However, when we got to the Nina challenge, she was really hard to work with. I just couldn't find anything likable about her.


173. Julie Tierney
Season 9- 14th Place

The sad thing is that I actually thought that I was going to like Julie. She seemed really chill and cool, and I was pretty sure that she would be among my favorites. However, that just wasn't the case. She was really boring, and she made really terrible clothes on the show. Which was unfortunate, because her pre-Project Runway looks were really cool. 


172. Hanmiao Yang
Season 14- 14th Place

I had really high hopes for her. I thought that her designs were really cool, and she seemed to have a cute personality, but she ended up kinda getting the Ping edit. AKA, she came off as spacey, weird, and defensive in the first couple episodes, and then in a team challenge, she was hard to work with and a bit of a control freak. That was really disappointing for me, because she seemed to have a really cool aesthetic before the show.


171. Karen Batts
Season 12- 10th Place

Oh, Karen. Oh, Karen. I didn't totally hate her. She was a little over the top and exciteable, but I didn't hate her. However, I did grow to dislike her and get frustrated with her, because she stayed on WAY too long. I honestly thought that she was going to get eliminated in episode one. I despised her aesthetic. Basically everything she made was oversized/baggy but not in a cute way. It was unflattering and just bad.


170. Emily Payne
Season 13- 5th Place
All Stars Season 5- 5th Place

At first, I didn't really have strong feelings about Emily. I didn't love her, but I didn't hate her. But then, she kept on surviving on looks that I thought weren't good, so I got more and more frustrated with her. It got to the point that I really disliked her, until she was finally eliminated in the final 5. Honestly, I just didn't like her designs and thought that she got much further than she should have.

169. Anna Lynett
Season 7- 12th Place

My opinions on Anna aren't super strong one way or the other, but they definitely do lean slightly more toward dislike. She seemed rather in over her head and she had a very soft, somewhat weak personality and she just seemed too sweet and innocent. Plus, I was never a huge fan of her designs.
