Ugly Betty's design contest winner announced
The conceit of the episode is that Christina only has a few hours to create a dress for a prominent celebrity, but a blizzard prevents her from the leaving the office for fabric. Fortunately, she's a crafty lady and, like Scarlett O'Hara, Carol Burnett and Julie Andrews before her, uses whatever is available to whip up a celeb-worthy creation.
WARNING: SPOILER AHEAD
The results would put the cast of Project Runway to shame. Well, technically, if any celebrity showed up in this particular dress to a red carpet affair, their stylist would be hitting the bricks the next morning. However, the dress is perfectly in keeping with Ugly Betty's poppy, heightened cartoon style.
PICTURED: Ricardo Rodriguez's winning dress design for the Ugly Betty episode "Derailed," airing Thursday, February 15th.
