Oh Mondo, you’re an adorable imp. And we love your design skills and think that you were totally robbed during your season of “Project Runway” when Gretchen beat you for top honors. However! This hat looks like a giant furry crooked penis flapping about on your head. It’s so Seussical!
Let’s face it: keeping up with pop culture is difficult. With more than 1000 channels worth of TV shows, not to mention a new flood of movies and music every week, it’s practically a full-time job to keep up with everything. Luckily, it is our full-time job. So after the jump, your cheat sheet to the TV shows you need to watch, the albums you need to hear, and the movies you need to see. This week, we’ve got new albums from Coldplay and Kelly Clarkson, Justin Timberlake and Johnny Depp heating up the big screen, and a new reality show about horrific in-laws. Keep reading »
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 »
“There’s a girl who learned how to sew just four months before coming on the show … [And Tim Gunn will be running] well, I just wanted to see him run … it was very entertaining to say the least!”
— “Project Runway host Heidi Klum on the show’s upcoming season, and her wily way of manipulating the incomparable Tim Gunn into doing very un-Tim-Gunn-like things this season. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
“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.”
— Tim Gunn is still blabbing that it was wack that backstabbing Gretchen Jones won over sweet little Mondo Guerra on the most recent season of “Project Runway.” I’m glad he agrees the uber-talented Mondo totally got the shaft.
After the jump, Tim talks some smack about Michael Kors, on whom he blames Gretchen’s puzzling win: Keep reading »
Mondo Guerra’s polka-dot maxi dress was a source of contention between the “Project Runway” judges during the finale. Heidi Klum and Jessica Simpson loved it, though Michael Kors and Nina Garcia hated it. Michael even dared Heidi to wear the dress — and she has. Heidi showed up to the AFI Fest 2010 Closing Night Gala screening of “Black Swan” wearing a variation of Mondo’s dress–one without the three-quarter length sleeves and padded shoulders, though. I was a fan of Mondo’s original dress, and I feel like Heidi’s tweaked one is missing that whimsical, high-fashion flair. What do you think? [TooFab] Keep reading »
Well, this is interesting. In the video above, Tim Gunn
is asked what he thought about the “Project Runway”
finale, in which Gretchen was awarded the top prize. Tim explains that host Heidi Klum
asked him who he thought should win and he agreed with her that Mondo was the best choice, but that Heidi couldn’t get Nina Garcia or Michael Kors to budge. In the end, Tim agreed with some random woman in a deli, who told him that Mondo would succeed no matter what, while Gretchen needed the money. And that, my friends, will go down as the real reason Gretchen, who everyone hated for her attitude and hippie dippie designs (except me
), won “Project Runway.” Keep reading »
