Project Runway season two finalist Kara Janx married boyfriend Sharone Sohayegh on January 14, People confirmed Monday afternoon.

For her big day, in Cape Town in her native South Africa, the 30-year-old Janx honored her roots with an African-themed wedding featuring local cuisine and indigenous flowers. Sounds a lot cooler than that lame TomKat wedding we didn’t get invited to.

The couple met when Janx moved to the U.S. nine years ago and lived in the same lower Manhattan apartment building as Sohayegh. She then went on to stardom on the hit, Heidi Klum-led reality series.

Sohayegh and Janx started dating back in 2003, right around the time Mischa Barton last ate food, and the New Jersey native proposed to Janx, days before New York Fashion Week.

The newlyweds to stay in New York City, where Sohayegh works as a commercial real estate broker and Janx runs her eponymous clothing line.

Though Janx came in fourth on Project Runway, she still came up with a winning design: The jersey kimono-style dress she created and wore on the show has become her signature – and most popular – piece.

“It’s been spectacular for me,” she said.

Janice Dickinson had no comment. Not that she would have any reason to. She’s not affiliated with Project Runway. She is, however, insane.
