Michael Costello, Project Runway Season 8
Michael was pretty much a magnet for controversy during season eight. Ivy accused him of cheating, Gretchen accused him of being "either an idiot savant or an idiot," and the judges' continuous praise of his work baffled some of his fellow designers. Michael debuted his Resort collection and opened a showroom in the garment district of Downtown LA. He dressed Beyoncé for the 2014 Grammys and, as a result, his career has taken off.
