Tim Gunn Wants A Plus-Size Season Of “Project Runway” (And So Do We!)

"I would like to do a season of Project Runway where every model is larger than a size 12." Tim Gunn had a great answer to the question, "What reality show have you not done but wish you could?" in a recent roundtable interview with The Hollwood Reporter. A special season of PR dedicated to designing clothing…

Once upon a time long ago in a land far away ... well, okay, it was 2005 on Bravo ... there was the world's most friendly and energetic designer, Nick Verreos. Although he was eliminated on episode 10 (boo), his involvement on the show shot his line,  Nikolaki, co-designed with his partner David Paul, to stardom…

Watch: Michael Kors Really Knows How To Throw An Insult

Okay guys, quick quiz. Which one of these insults did Michael Kors not say during the first 10 seasons of "Project Runway". "She looks like a transvestite flamenco dancer at a funeral."

For The “Project Runway” Contestant In All Of Us: Kors Metaphors

Ever since we stopped watching "Project Runway" because it was moved to Lifetime and we couldn't be bothered to figure out what channel that was (until "Liz & Dick" aired last night, that is), we've missed Michael Kors. Unlike, say, "X-Factor"'s Britters Spears, who thinks that everything is "amazing," Kors has a spot-on assessment or…

That’s A Lot Of Look: “Project Runway: All Stars” Mondo Guerra’s Seussical Penis Hat

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!

“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…

Heidi Klum Forces Tim Gunn To Run

“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…

Tim Gunn Talks Smack About Gretchen Jones Winning “Project Runway”

"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…

Heidi Klum Wears Mondo’s Polka-Dot Dress

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…

“Project Runway”: It’s Better With Toddlers

The "Project Runway" crew is a lot less irascible when they're two feet tall and pooping in their Pull-Ups. Every episode of "Project Runway" should be done with toddlers, damn it. But I have one problem: Where's baby Nina Garcia?! Maybe she's off making bitchy comments on the potty. [Babelgum]…

Jessica Simpson To Judge The “Project Runway” Finale

Jessica Simpson is busy these days, and not just teaching Annika the joys of jeggings. Yesterday, Jessica sauntered into the Fashion Week tent where "Project Runway" was holding its fashion show. When she sat down in the front row with Nina Garcia, Michael Kors, and Heidi Klum it quickly became clear that she is thi…

Frisky Q&A: Tim Gunn On Evil Gretchen, Martha Stewart’s Rude Kid, And Kissing Michelle Obama

Tim Gunn has a giant pair of balls. No, I am not intimately familiar with the contents of Tim's nattily tailored suits. I have read the "Project Runway" mentor's latest book, a half-memoir/half-etiquette guide called Gunn's Golden Rules: Life's Little Lessons For Making It Work, and let me tell you, this man has chutzpah. The…

Betsey Johnson Brings The Noise To “Project Runway”

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 i…

Tim Gunn’s Mutiny: Asks If “Project Runway” Judges Are Smoking Crack

Last night brought the season premiere of "Project Runway," and I tried—really tried—to stay awake through all 90 minutes of it. But while this show once seemed so fresh and original, now that it's in its 8th season, it's just stale. So to add an extra 30 minutes to every episode? Egads. I found myself…

Nina Garcia Scares The Crap Out Of All The New “Project Runway” Designers

It's that time again! "Project Runway" season 8 debuts tonight and PopSugar has video-chatted with the new designers. It's a short video, but there don't seem to be any obvious annoying cast members. I like the chick who asks herself, "What would Elvis do? And would ZZ Top be proud?" They're all terribly afraid of…
