Quote Of The Day: Nina Garcia Thinks Trends Are “Ugh”

“I know some [trends] are available at very inexpensive prices, but you fill your closet with all this stuff that, in three months, you won’t want anymore. You’ll end up spending more money than you save. If you invest in something a little more expensive with longevity, you’ll use it more. How many girls do…

Quick Pic: The Emperor’s New Clothes

The new season of “Project Runway” premieres tomorrow night on Lifetime. So, as a stunt, they sent all the models with the Naked Cowboy around Times Square riding atop a double decker bus. While we thought leaving Bravo was backwards, now we’re wondering why did they get a dude who runs around nearly nude to…

Reality Show Contestants: The Sweatshop Workers Of The Acting World?

Ever since the first season of “The Real World” (damn that was a long time ago), I’ve watched reality television evolve—or devolve?—from a bunch of earnest 20-somethings struggling to make it in New York City to a bunch of fame-seeking whores pulling hair, getting wasted, and performing soft porn on camera. (Ever seen “Tila Tequila&#8217…

Will You Watch Bravo’s “Launch My Line”?

Anyone excited for Bravo’s new series, “Launch My Line”? It may not be “Project Runway,” but there is something verrrrry familiar about it. Popwatch reports: “This time, 20 people who are already successful in different lines of work — music mogul! CEO! — need only exhibit a ‘passion for fashion’ in order to…

Korto Momolu’s Jewelry Line Has Arrived!

Korto Momolu didn’t win season five of “Project Runway,” but her handmade jewelry definitely stole the show. And now you don’t even have to be a top model to wear her designs, because she’s bringing the jewelry to the masses on her website. “I tried to do a follow-up on the few pieces that I…

Tim Gunn Dishes On The New “Project Runway” Designers

We were extremely bummed to learn “Project Runway” was “moving to Lifetime from Bravo. Our depression grew when we realized Bravo’s “The Fashion Show” is no “Runway” substitute — Kelly Rowland and Isaac Mizrahi have nothing on Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn! Well, season six of “Runway” is set to premiere on Aug. 20, and…

Christian Siriano For Payless 2.0

So, is it fierce enough for you?  Christian Siriano of “Project Runway” fame is continuing his collaboration with Payless Shoes. If you remember, the budget shoe company sponsored Siriano’s spike studded footwear for his fashion show during New York Fashion Week back in February. His runway shoes have inspired his Fall 2009 collection for Payle…

When Did Bravo Go From Fantastic To Trash-tastic?

Oh Bravo, why did you do this to me? I lost my faith in TV after the second season of “Survivor,” but found hope again in the wonder that was “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy.” Upon viewing the first promotional commercial I remember thinking: Could it be? Is it true? Is there really going…

Since “The Fashion Show” Sucks, Play The “Project Runway Game” Instead

I can’t possibly force myself to sit through another episode of “The Fashion Show.” I cannot take another hour of Kelly Rowland contorting her face into bizarre sneers. If I hear Isaac Mizrahi say “bye bye, darling,” one more time, I will snap. Because I value my sanity, or whatever is left of it since…

Kelly Rowland Is No Heidi Klum

We are all going through major “Project Runway” withdrawal now that the show has been moved to Lifetime. Every episode of the thrown-together Bravo knock-off “The Fashion Show” is equivalent to a so-so episode of “Runway,” but the real nostalgia comes from the longing for “Runway”‘s host Heidi Klum. Here are the top four reaso…

Fans of Candy Land rejoice! This weekend the featured wedding in the New York Times might be one of the quirkiest we’ve seen yet.

“Project Runway” Is Finally Coming To Lifetime, But Do You Still Care About Klum & Co.?

After nearly a year of wondering when and on what channel we’d next see our beloved “Project Runway,” the companies involved have reached a settlement, and the show will make Lifetime its new home beginning with the sixth season this summer.

During the first five seasons of PR, we basically lived for the…

Kenley Got Into A Cat Fight

We always knew Kenley from “Project Runway” was a little cuckoo, and now we have proof! TMZ is reporting that she was arrested yesterday morning after allegedly attacking her ex-fiance — and throwing a cat at him (among other things). Right now she’s behind bars and charged with six crimes, including 2nd degree assault, 3rd…

Christian Siriano For Payless Looks Dangerously ‘Meh’

And I do mean dangerous! Those spikes could mess a bitch up! The “Project Runway” winner just showed at Fashion Week, but chances are, his upcoming line for Payless is the only Siriano-approved hot tranny fierceness the average woman can afford. Expected to be priced at an affordable $25-$45 per pair when they come out…

Jay McCarroll’s Eleven Minutes

Jay McCarroll, the fashion designer who won the first season of “Project Runway,” is the focus of a new documentary that arrives just in time for New York Fashion Week: “Eleven Minutes.” Why 11 minutes? That’s how long his first fashion show will last. The cameras follow McCarroll behind the scenes as he…

Bravo’s “Project Runway” Replacement

Since the “Project Runway” fiasco hasn’t been sorted out yet, Bravo has a new fashion competition to replace their signature show, which may or may not be heading over to Lifetime. It’s called “The Fashion Show,” and it “will follow professional designers as they strive to make their mark in the dog-eat-dog world of fashio…
