Diana Eng’s Glowing LED Garments Illuminate The Runway

The Atlantic website just posted this beautiful video from Diana Eng's fashion show at last February's New York Fashion Week. You may remember Eng as the technology-obsessed designer from the second season of "Project Runway." Now she's known (at least according to Wikipedia) for having popularized the term "fashion nerd." Her collection featured garments outfitted…

The Guy With The Craziest Hair Always Wins “Project Runway”

Season seven of "Project Runway" dealt its final "auf wiedersehen" this week. Seth Aaron out-styled Mila and Emilio, further proving my theory that the guy with the most alternative hair on the show has the best chances of winning. Think about it—Seth Aaron's faux-hawk-punk-rock-side-burn hair thing looks strangely similar to season three winner Jeffrey's do.

What’s In Leanne Marshall’s Closet?

You remember the quiet but determined Leanne Marshall, who went on to win Season 5 of "Project Runway"? She wowed the judges with her precious designs, proving that vintage styles and airy pieces are exactly what women want to wear. A few seasons after her spotlight moment, she allowed Time Out New York to visit…

Nina Garcia Go Boom!

Why is "Project Runway" judge Nina Garcia sprawled on the sidewalk outside the Bryant Park tents at New York Fashion Week? A) Tim Gunn turned into a tiny man, and she is trying to find him before he falls into a storm drain. B) She saw a penny on the ground and is picking it…

6 Challenges We’d Really Like To See On “Project Runway”

"Project Runway" returned this week with a typical cast of over-dramatic characters trotting pretty little dresses (and some hot messes) down the runway. We like sweet frocks as much as the next girl, but there are a few challenges we'd much rather see this season on "PR." Personally, I'm rooting for a challenge that involve…

“Project Runway” Season 7 Trailer Is Here!

A new season of "Project Runway" already? Didn't the last season just end, like, last week? I guess the calendar got really screwed up with that Bravo vs. Lifetime fight over the show. Anyway, here's the season 7 trailer, starring my dream boyfriend Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, and the ever-irascible Nina Garcia. Thi…

“Project Runway” Returns For Season 7

"Launch My Line" not satisfying your "Project Runway" jones? Good thing PR will make a speedy return on Jan. 14 on Lifetime. And this time around the designers will be back in NYC, where they should be, instead of L.A. The 16 designers will compete for $100,000 to launch their line and a spread i…

It Pays To Be The Mean Girl On “Project Runway”

Did you watch last night's season finale of "Project Runway"? Yeah, I didn't think so. I've been putting off writing about it all day because, well, it was kind of boring. With Carol Hannah, Althea, and Irina competing, it seemed pretty clear that too-cool-for-school Irina was going to take the crown, despite maybe having knocked

“Project Runway” Controversy: Did Irina Rip Off New York Magazine?

On last week's episode of "Project Runway," resident mean girl Irina Shabayeva was called out for using trademarked images of Coney Island on the silk-screened tees she was planning to show at Bryant Park. Tim Gunn handed down the word from the lawyers and Irina had to soldier on, making new, original tees to kee…

The “Project Runway” Final 3 Are All Chicks

"Project Runway" has been a little off this season, with the exception of amazing guest judges like Christina Aguilera and Milla Jovovich. Is the show's formula feeling stale the sixth time around? Did the move to Lifetime ruin it? Or is this just the lamest cast ever? Last night, the five contestants were taken to…

Christina Aguilera Gets The Opposite Of Dirrty On “Project Runway”

Where do starlets go when their career needs a boost? Apparently, “Project Runway.” Lindsay Lohan appeared as a guest judge on the show earlier in the season, and last night Christina Aguilera took her turn. Seeing her on the episode, sporting some serious bangs, reminded me why she's been the pop star who's totally falle…

“Project Runway”: Reality Show Or Garnier Product Pusher?

OK, "Project Runway," we get it. Viewers own TiVos and fast-forward through commercials, so advertisers want products plugged in the show instead. We understand. But last night's "Project Runway" went too far! Designers have always sent their models to the L'Oreal hair and makeup room and the Garnier hair salon and that's fine. But we…

Daniel Vosovic, "Project Runway" season 2 runner-up and "All-Stars" winner, tells NYMag.com's "The Cut" that being on "PR" again was a "mind f**k." He goes on to explain, "It felt like a weird summer camp. Four years later everything was the same — same stage, same crappy lights, Heidi's pregnant again. It's like I had…

LiLo Comes Face-To-Face With SamRo Look-A-Like On Project Runway Premiere

So I don't get in trouble for posting about this, gasp, 11 hours after the episode aired, SPOILERS AHEAD. Got that? OK. So, last night was the premiere of "Project Runway" on Lifetime, which Jessica liveblogged. Personally, I was slightly underwhelmed. None of the designers stood out to me yet, except one, but not because…
