Project Runway: Why Don’t We Hate Tim Gunn Yet?

Every reality show has a breakout star — Lo or Whitney on The Hills, Nicole Richie on The Simple Life, etc. — but usually that star has a fall from grace, once everyone has tired of his or her eccentricities. Just look at Christian Siriano — even we’re sick of saying “fierce” all the tme. But this is not the case with fellow Project Runway star Tim Gunn. I don’t think anyone expected Tim to become the show’s most beloved cast member, least of all Tim, but five seasons in, how is it that we still love him so freaking much?! Check out the clip from Wednesday’s episode above. We want to smack Blayne, but Tim is just adorable as always. He’s so stylish and handsome and cultured, yet he reminds me so much of my grandma when he says, “Holla atcha boy!” Keep reading »

    Project Runway Designers Demonstrate Why More Clothes Aren’t Green

    On last night’s episode of Project Runway (I’m sorry if you missed it because I told you it was on at 10pm, rather than 9pm — here’s the recap), the contestants had to create cocktail dresses out of eco-friendly fabrics selected by their models. For some reason, the silk/hemp blend that was popular with many of the models seems to come in just two colors, an ugly bronze and a slightly cheap-looking pale good. Apparently, it was very difficult to manipulate — I have never seen hemlines so crooked. Guest judge Natalie Portman was as ladylike as ever, always saying something good about the design before giving her criticisms, and in the end, Suede’s innovative criss-crossing of fabrics won her over. Heidi Klum even said she’s wear the dress if she were 10 years younger. Heidi, you don’t need to shave off 10 years to wear this dress.

    Christian Siriano’s Bluefly Collection: Fierce In A Bad Way

    Christian Siriano, last season’s “fierce” winner of Project Runway, is everywhere these days. He’s designed prom dresses for avatars and small collections for Puma, and he’s gearing up to show at New York Fashion week come September. Yesterday, his nine-piece collection for Bluefly, which was part of the PR prize package, went up on the site. For some reason, you can’t buy any of his clothes yet — either that, or they sold out in a day. (They all have a note that says “We’re sorry, this item is not available” next to them.) But as much as I love Christian and all of his hot tranny mess-iness, I don’t think I’d spend almost $400 on this jacket. More photos after the jump… [NY Times, Bluefly] Keep reading »

    The Ins And Outs Of Project Runway

    While watching Project Runway‘s season premiere and the promo videos for tonight’s episode, we noticed that some of the contestants (and Heidi) have awesome personal style. Others, on the other hand, have questionable style. Now, this doesn’t mean the clothes they design are awful, but I think it does say something about a designer when he sports a rattail. After the jump, we judge Project Runway‘s style… Keep reading »

    It’s Evolution, Baby

    Some may say that going from super stylish clothes to sweatpants is a downward progression. But maybe it’s actually an upwards one. Coiffed city gal Laura, from Project Runway Season 3, may have feared being a sloppily dressed mom, but it turns out evolution has already put plenty of females in the animal kingdom into nature’s “sweats.” While many female animals have the less showy appearance of their species, oddly enough, the males tend to get the fancy dress — like mallard ducks with their bright emerald feathers. Darwin thought that over time the boys had developed those traits to attract the girls, like glam rockers that use guyliner. Keep reading »
