“Project Runway”‘s All-Star Edition Won’t Feature Any Of The Show’s Stars

Just as “America’s Next Top Model” is returning this fall with a season of “all stars” (read: also-rans who didn’t win), “Project Runway” is also pulling out its past losers for an all star season, featuring past season runner-ups who are angling for a second chance at top prize. The difference? The all-star show won’t feature any of the “Proj Run” team we’ve come to know and love/loathe. No Michael Kors or Nina Garcia, noi Gunn(!) and no Heidi Klum. Instead, Sports Illustrated model Angela Lindvall will play Heidi’s part and Isaac Mizrahi and Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman will handle judging duties.

So who’s actually going to be competing on the all-star season? Keep reading »

Listen Up: Headphones That Complete Any Outift

Many people adore ear buds and their in-ear headphones brethren. Not I. I’m starting to think that my ear canal must be oddly shaped, because they just refuse to stay in place for more than 10 seconds. And yes, I’ve tried the kinds with variable size. So I am all about old fashioned, over the skull headphones. My favorite that I’ve found so far are UrbanEars from Urban Outfitters. They come in eight colors, ranging from bright turquoise to pristene white. And they sound pretty darn good.

Just Kidding, That Tavi/Jane Pratt Collaboration Isn’t Happening

It seems the love affair between teen wunderkind style blogger Tavi Gevinson and Sassy magazine creator Jane Pratt may be coming to a close. Tavi originally signed on to be a part of Pratt’s new website xoJane, and was meant to bring the teen voice and angle to the publication. But when Pratt’s site launched earlier this year, the Style Rookie blogger’s influence was nowhere to be found. Now it seems that Gevinson has decided that xoJane’s parent corporation, Say Media, isn’t anyone she wants to work with. Instead, Gevinson is going independent for her new magazine venture, Rookie. “It was just that I want to have full control, and it’s important to me that we’re independent, not so that we can be indie and ‘down with the Man,’ but because I find a lot of comfort knowing that it’s all in my control,” said Gevinson in a statement. Given Gevinson’s love of all things ’90s (Riot Grrl, Courtney Love, “My So-Called Life”), we’re not surprised she’s decided to invoke a DIY spirit. And frankly, we’re more excited than ever to see what she’s going to produce. [The Observer] Keep reading »

Nikki Reed, Your Obsession With Your Fiance Is Freaking Us Out

How much does “Twilight” star Nikki Reed love her fiance, “American Idol” also-ran Paul McDonald? Enough to put his visage on her fingernails. All of them. She wore his face on her fingers to this past weekend’s Teen Choice Awards. I imagine that she meant as a sweet gesture, but somehow, it seems kind of creepy. Like, what if she picks her nose with her fiance’s face? Or unwedges her underwear from her butt with two Paul McDonald-clad fingers? Paul McDonald, did you put her up to this? Or are you two just really crazily obsessively that much in love with each other? I mean, most people just put pictures of their significant others on their phones, guys. [Celebuzz] Keep reading »

The Trend That Is Not A Trend: Sewing Clothes!

Cutting edge paper thing The New York Times has uncovered a thriving underworld in Brooklyn, full of women who have taken up needles and thread for this thing called — what is it called? — sewing? Apparently, these sewing wonders, make their own garments! At home. By hand. This is a trend, this people making their own clothes thing. Crazy, I know. The Times agrees, and found the time to profile Sarah Kate Beaumont, who sews clothes out of her Park Slope apartment. Sarah Kate, who “majored in English literature at Bryn Mawr College, where she rode a unicycle in leggings and a skirt,” sewed several items of clothing “as an experiment of self-reliance and artistic whimsy,” and now it’s “a way of life.” Some (the Times actually) might say Sarah Kate’s “whimsy” and “self-reliance” are just reflective of Brooklyn’s independent spirit, its burgeoning, itching (like an STD) desire to be seen as an separate entity from Manhattan. Yes, because Brooklynites are always living their lives as a metaphor. But others (again, The New York Times, natch) might argue that the back-to-sewing movement is simply an extension of the “back to the land” pioneer movement. We say: this is not a trend. Women be making their own clothes since the beginning of times, idiots. Next week, in part two of the Times series on The Sewing Trend, a little show called “Project Runway”!
