    Laura snags the most $$$ at PR auction

    It looks like Laura and Uli were the "winners" at the Project Runway auction, collecting the most money for their designs. Jeffrey's striped zipper dress sold for about $500 less than Uli's silver mini-dress.

    Laura Bennett fetched the top price of any garment featured in Season Three - $4,500 for a shimmering, floor-length gown.

    The dress was one of 12 garments she designed for the final runway show in Bryant Park. Bennett, 43, of Manhattan, was the contestant who clashed in the show's final episodes with tattooed L.A. designer Jeffrey Sebelia, 36, who was revealed last week as the winner of Season Three.

    His highest-priced creation - a striped dress with a complex array of zippers - sold for $2,900.

    That was less than the highest-priced piece made by second-place finisher Uli Herzner, 35, of Miami Beach, whose silvery mini-dress sold for $3,425.

    I wonder whose ass Laura had to kiss to get this in the paper. Bitter Laura fans like Adam Buckman are so cute.

    There is also the possibility that some of the winning bidders will not pay up.

    There's also the possibility that people bid more for Laura and Uli's designs because they thought Jeffrey's designs were ugly.

    It's only natural that someone would spend more money on a floor-length, hand-detailed gown like Laura's.

    Rich ladies would tend to dress more like Laura or Uli.

    Britney Spears and undermedicated bag ladies are more Jeffrey's market.

    I haven't seen that. But since the auction was probably part of the contract and the proceeds going to charity, maybe Laura wanted to keep a few of the pieces for her own archives. This would be the only way to do it.

    Sometimes there is a disconnect between what the fashion industry considers "fashion-forward" and what people on the street actually want to wear.

    i don't think Jeffrey's stuff is that conceptual. it just looks like its more geared toward the LA crowd.
