‘Project Runway’ season 19: Worst looks

It takes a lot to win “Project Runway.” It’s hard enough just not to lose every week since the designers only get one or two days to create an entire look from scratch. So there’s no shame in having an off day. Nevertheless, these are the worst looks of season 19 according to the judges. Did they get it right by picking these as the poorest designs? Or did you think any of them were criminally underrated? Scroll down to see the losing looks, updating each week as the season progresses.

The season started with 16 designers: Octavio Aguilar, Darren Apolonio, Kenneth Barlis, Caycee Black, Bones Jones, Coral Castillo, Meg Ferguson, Prajje Oscar Jean-Baptiste, Kristina Kharlashkina, Katie Kortman, Shantall Lacayo, Chasity Sereal, Sabrina Spanta, Aaron Michael Steach, Zayden Skipper, and Anna Zhou.

Ultimately, only one of them can win the grand prize: $250,000, a feature in Elle Magazine, and a mentorship with the Council of Fashion Designers of America. So eventually almost all of them will have a bad day that takes them out of contention. Making those decisions each week are Elle editor-in-chief and “Project Runway” mainstay Nina Garcia, journalist Elaine Welteroth, fashion designer Brandon Maxwell, and a rotating roster of guest judges including designer Jason Wu, social media influencer Wisdom Kaye, actress Taraji P. Henson, and many more.

In the fickle world of fashion, one day you’re in and the next you’re out. But fashion is in the eye of the beholder. So what did you think of these designs that gave the judges nightmares?
