For the first time in history, "Project Runway" season 5, ran all female finalists on its final judgment day, October 15. Leanne Marshall came as the winner, followed by Korto Momolu on the second place, and Kenley Collins on the third.

All the judges including "Runway" mentor, Tim Gunn who replaced Jennifer Lopez who suffered foot injury, agreed that the designer from Portland won the competition because of her modern, clean look, and sustainable fabrics design. But they also argued that Marshall's final collection which were shown at New York's Fashion Week had too many flaps or petals. As one of the judges, Michael Kors, warned, "You'll become known as Petals Marshall."

The runner-up Momolu was getting judges' compliments on her cohesive colorful look and wealthy details. But she came into the second place because of Heidi Klum's opinion which thought that there are some pieces overworked.

At the third spot, Collins, was doubted of her originality. She was being criticized by the judges who thought that Collins' brightly colored final design were already used by other designers. For the argument, Collins said, "No one likes to be called a copycat when they're a true artist. I think it's [expletive]." She also got juries' critic, concerning her bad attitude in taking juries' opinion.

Leeann's collection was fabulous and it made you hunger to see more!! Her color choices were feminine and her designs were innovative. Every piece was as if you were viewing gems against the skin instead of clothing. Leeann's instincts, attitude and trust in herself along with her impecable ability for detail made her a winner all the way. I can't wait to see more of her designs, own them and experience her shows in person. I would be honored to wear her designs or collaborate anyday. J.Dean Los Angeles

Gypsy, they're correct they're using the contestants last names as Collins as in Kenley Collins.
