Top 5 Looks: 2nd Place

Amy Sarabi was an early favorite to take it all in Season 7. With a win and a top 3 finish in the first four episodes she quickly established herself as a force to be reckoned with. Her bold design choices and sweet nature made her a fan favorite this season and we were sad to not see her survive until the end. And although her design in the "Design Your Heart Out" garnered her a win, it was her top 3 look from "Fashion Farm" that turned out to be a big favorite of yours.

In episode 2, the Project Runway designers were literally sent off to the farm and challenged to create a party-worthy look out of a potato sack. Amy dip-dyed squares of burlap and layered them to create a stunning skirt with a handkerchief hemline. Using a different shade of the burlap, she made a cute, billowy top with a halter neckline and a bare back that her client-model Allison asked for.

Who knew a potato sack could be so fun and flirty? Amy nailed every aspect of this challenge and it was a big surprise when she lost out to Jay for the win. We can't change that decision but we can certainly give her a consolation prize. Congratulations Amy, you made one of the BPR Top 5 Looks of Season 7!

Tomorrow is finale day - check back in as we reveal your pick for the Top Look of Season 7!
