Beatrice Guapo from "Project Runway" is one of the contestants in Season 9 of the Lifetime reality fashion design competition series. She is a 29-year-old designer who grew up in Orange County, California, and is currently living in Marina del Rey, California.

Beatrice Guapo ("Project Runway") first realized she had potential as a designer when she was young and would have her mother edit and create dresses and outfits. The first garment Beatrice ever made was a '70s disco costume when she was

in high school. She received her training at the Fashion Institute of Design and Marketing in Los Angeles, where she won a partial scholarship.

Guapo considers knitwear to be her main strength. She can make various looks from lounge, dressy, and day to evening in knits. She is also strong in sketching, pattern-making and concept. Her weaknesses are that she doesn't sew by hand, hardly ever sews wovens and rarely uses zippers. She's most proud of having designed her Angel V top. She says that it's super easy to wear her modern shape, that it's been one of her best sellers and that it never seems to disappoint.

She has been influenced by her mother whom she says had great style and made most of her own outfits. Guapo also takes inspiration from her daily life, including her friends and family, who are all very busy, on-the-go women. She likes to create styles that are fashionable and modern, and statement pieces that are easy to wear. While she's designing, she likes listening to Calvin Harris, Tiesto, or Foster the People.

Her favorite designers are L'Wren Scott, Proenza Schouler and Rick Owens. Gaupo considers a scarf to be a fashion must, while UGGs are a fashion faux pas in her book. Her favorite style icons are Kate Moss and Chloe Sevigny.
