"My first role with Project Runway was doing the castings with Tim Gunn. We went on the road, cross-country. We would see thirty to fourty people a day with a rack of clothes that we would look through. Tim was always incredibly gracious, and always gave the most mentorish advice — very constructive. He and I were never the mean judges." - Zanna Roberts Rossi
"The designers went on a field trip to the Hearst building to visit Joanna Coles, the editor-in-chief of Marie Claire. They were told they would be designing an outfit to be worn by Heidi Klum on the cover of the magazine. Anthony won the challenge and Heidi wore his blue dress on the cover of the April 2010 issue."
"For the Larger Than Life challenge the designers had to create a look that defines the Marie Claire woman. Gretchen won the challenge, and was awarded the incredible prize of having her look on a billboard in Times Square. As if that wasn't enough of a prize, the model used for the billboard was Coco Rocha."
"The designers were given the task of designing an outfit for Nina Garica. The winning look would be featured in a Marie Claire ad, and would also be on a New York City taxicab."
