Sarah Jessica Parker: Project Runway Winner ‘Gifted, Intimidating’

As many of you know, Christian Siriano was revealed as the winner last night.

In the episode which Parker guest judged, she chose an outfit by Victorya Hong for her Bitten line. She did have some interesting words for us in our recent interview about Christian, however.

Said Parker:

"The work room is not at all what I pictured. I had it all turned
around in my head. It’s a much smaller space—television always expands
things, for better or worse. Just being with those designers was
remarkable and seeing what they could do with fifteen friggin’ dollars.

"The hardest part—and Andy will tell you this—was the judging. I
found it very uncomfortable. I have always found that people flourish
when you’re constructive, and not snarky. I think Michael Kors is
really good—he’s hardcore—he’s a designer and a businessman and he cuts
to the chase, but I’m just not equipped.

"The thing with Christian haunted me for days. I kept writing to Andy
and said, ‘You’ve got to tell him how much I love him,’ but at the end
of the day it was just not the right piece for the collection. On the
show you don’t get to see all the nice things I said to Christian about
his work. He’s so talented. I really admired him, but he’s also a very
intimidating young man. He’s really gifted."

Sex and the City: the Movie is in theaters May 30.

Bravo TV has an interview up with winner Christian Siriano.
