About the Episodes: Stylist to the stars Rachel Zoe made two appearances on Project Runway to judge some very unique challenges. During season 3, she offered her critiques for the outfits created using materials found at the Waste Management Recycle America's New Jersey center. Zoe (pictured with Christian Siriano and Padma Lakshmi) returned in season 5 to judge the designers on garments made from spare parts and raw materials from a Saturn hybrid car.
Make-It-Work Advice: In her season 3 appearance, simplicity was key to winning Zoe's approval. She admonished contestant Kayne Gillaspie for his over-the-top creation: "You just had to stop. You just kept going and going and going." During season 5, she was impressed with what the designers created out of car materials. She didn't hold back with her compliments, saying about Korto Momolu’s coat dress that she would "walk out the door in that. It’s so chic I cannot believe that’s from car parts."
