Oh, to be famed supermodel and “Project Runway” host Heidi Klum. When you and I lose our luggage, we get stuck going to Target and buying discount pairs of underwear. When Heidi loses her luggage — or in this particular case, has her luggage stolen at JFK — Michael Kors comes to the rescue, messengering a new dress over to Heidi’s hotel room. And it’s a good thing, too — Heidi was set to appear at a special lunch at Hudson Hotel to shill her Wildlife jewelry collection, the third collection for the Home Shopping Network. At the lunch, Heidi confessed that she works on her jewelry designs on Saturday mornings (that’s exactly what we do, too). “I like to make things that stand out,” said Klum at the event. “I don’t like to make things that you’ve seen before.” [Racked]
“Why did the villain win? Why? I could not believe it. Gretchen’s talented, and she’s not a horrible person. But was she the winner of the season? I don’t think so. The ‘Project Runway’ designers are like my kids. I love them all. I will say I love some more than others. And there’s some I wish I’d left in a basket.”

After the jump, Tim talks some smack about Michael Kors, on whom he blames Gretchen’s puzzling win: Keep reading »
Dear Michael Kors,
When I go shopping, I tend to channel a raccoon—I’m instantly attracted to anything shiny, sparkly, or fishy.

I’ll go to the store with every intention of purchasing simple black trousers, but within seconds I’ve been seduced by the flashy racks of ridiculous trend pieces and I end up buying gold lamé harem pants instead. I have a really hard time buying sensible clothes. Keep reading »
Fans of the ’90s, tulle, and “Sassy” magazine, get ready! Ebullient designer Betsey Johnson will be the guest judge on tonight’s episode of “Project Runway.” Tonight, the designers will be asked to make wearable items out of party store supplies (crepe paper bolero, anyone?).
It’s a tough challenge — apparently one designer ends up in the hospital tonight — and we’re wondering how Betsey’s quirkiness will mix with Michael Kors’ wit and Nina Garcia’s steely reserve. Betsey’s crazy style would have probably been “auf-ed” by Heidi Klum and the rest of the P-Run gang, so we’re expecting sparks to fly at the judging table. Keep reading »
Harper’s Bazaar has pulled a funny! You know when Rachel Zoe says, “I die,” over a particularly fabulous item of fashion? Well, the magazine took her at her word in this pretty amusing editorial starring Ms. Zoe getting slayed by all her favorite designers — literally.
