Taking a cue from Fashion Star, Project Runway is getting in on the commerce game. In honor of the show's tenth season, Lord & Taylor is debuting an exclusive ten-piece evening wear collection of cocktail dresses and gowns, with each dress created by a notable designer from each season. Along with Chris March, Mondo Guerra, and Uli Herzner, the collection's other designers include Nick Verros, Bert Keeter, Korto Momolu, Jay McCarroll, Gordana Gelhausen, Seth Aaron Henderson and the winner of last week's challenge, Christopher Palu.

For better or worse, these dresses are more mainstream and wearable than Chris March's legendary hair suit from Season Four. Most are pretty and they're all manageably priced at $350 or less. Highlights include Mondo's black Mary Quant-reminiscent frock (bottom left), Seth Aaron's long sleeve suit-like dress (top center), and Jay McCaroll's surprisingly demure black cocktail dress (bottom center). As for Chris March, his long mulberry and gold kimono gown shows no matter who he's designing for, his theatrical drag-queen aesthetic will never be completely suppressed.

The collection is currently available at, and will debut at Lord & Taylor's Fifth Avenue flagship store this Thursday, just in time for a big Fashion's Night Out celebration with all ten designers.
