Julie Unleashes a 'Droat' on the Judges of 'Project Runway' (VIDEO)

'Project Runway'Designing a day-to-night look for Nina Garcia, fashion director for 'Hell' magazine, was the challenge presented to the contestants on 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM ET on Lifetime). And Garcia was on hand to give them lots of guidance and tell them that all their ideas were terrible. Should make for a fun episode, right?


In the end, simple was better, and shapely was far better than ... well, whatever it was that Julie came up with. 'Marie Claire' editor-in-chief Joanna Coles dubbed it a droat as it was best described as almost a dress and almost a coat, but not really the best of either. What it wasn't was liked by anyone, except for Julie.

"I like it, yes," she said. Unfortunately, the challenge was to design something that Garcia would like, and Julie was way off the mark and paid the price for it by getting booted from the competition.

Maybe she can move ahead and see if there's a market out there for droats. Fashionable and warm!

You can't even get it right with the picture you have up here. Not only is that not even a picture from this week's episode, it isn't even the same designer you're speaking about.

Why do you have a pic of Anthony and his bird seed dress from last week's challenge when you should have the "droat" of which you speak, instead?
