Get Ready For Rachel Zoe And Co.!

I know we’ve said this before, but The Rachel Zoe Project, which premieres tonight at 11 p.m. on Bravo, looks like it’s going to be better than Project Runway and The Hills combined. Please don’t let us down, Bravo. (Doesn’t Rachel’s hubby look über-young? Amelia says he reminds her of Brent Bolthouse.)…

Project Runway’s Leanne Is A Trendsetter

Some of us at The Frisky predict that Leanne will win this season’s Project Runway competition because she has a well-defined design perspective — her designs scream her name. She revisits a combination of trends/elements in each of her covetable designs. Since we know you too have been dying to wear her fashions, we found…

Project Runway: No More Leathuh!

Looks We Hated: [From Left to Right] Suede’s Mismatched Camo and Tweed; Stella’s Magician’s Assistant Look; Joe’s Shanghai Flop

Last night’s episode of Project Runway was one of the best yet because the designers were challenged to create a look to add to Diane Von Furstenburg’s Fall collection, which was inspired by Marlene Dietrich…

Project Runway: Keith Whines His Way Home

Looks We Hated: Joe’s ugly motorcross look; Keith’s bland, ill-fitting, snooze-fest; Stella’s mismatched separates, shockingly devoid of leath-uh.

Last night’s episode of Project Runway featured the much anticipated return of an actually complicated and innovative challenge. The producers may have thought the drag queen episode was a doozy but dressing a bunch of dude…

The Five: Essentials In Our Closet

Project Runway’s Nina Garcia has this new book out called The One Hundred. In it, she shares all of the items she thinks fashionable women should own. Well, we got to thinking about some of the items in our lives that are indispensable even though they’re a little more random than LBDs, pearl necklaces, or…

Nina Garcia Wishes Crocs Were Never Invented

Last night, Project Runway judge, current Elle editor-at-large, and soon-to-be Marie Claire fashion director Nina Garcia had a “discussion and book signing” at the Tribeca Barnes & Noble in New York. The audience was a mixed bag: at least 15 men, a few tween PR fans, a couple fashion risk-takers (the girl to my right…

Project Runway: What A Drag!

Designs We Hated [From Left]: Jerell’s Glittery Green Number; Daniel’s Sorbet Meltdown; Keith’s Filthy Howard the Duck Thing (Like Nina Garcia said, it is quite a puzzle)

On this week’s episode the designers were challenged to create an outfit for drag queens. Although this was a new challenge, not a recycle bin rescue from…

Project Runway: Welcome To The “Jungle” Of Teamwork

We’re Not In Love [From Left]: Kelli and Daniel’s Hussy Loves Dolce & Gabbana Ensemble; Blayne and Leanne’s I Heart Old Navy Look; Terri and Suede’s Boring Boho-Chic Outfit.

Last night on Project Runway the designers had to create a work outfit that could transition to night for Brooke Shields’s character on Lipstick Jungle.

Project Runway: I Heart Blayne & The Retro Olympics

I give up. I totally have given into Blayne and have decided that he’s as lovable and funny as a puppy that’s just learning how to walk, but occasionally has accidents in your apartment that make you hate him for a couple minutes. Maybe it’s that we both have an addiction to being…

NYC Night Inspires Project Runway Designers

Designs We Hated [From Left} Haven’t we seen Stella’s rock-and-roll look before in, like, every rock video from the ’90s?; Keith’s toilet paper in a windstorm dress–should have used gray fabric, bud; Jennifer’s matronly Forever 21 creation.

On Wednesday’s episode of Project Runway the designers were challenged to use New York City as their…

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…

Project Runway Designers Demonstrate Why More Clothes Aren’t Green

From left: Jerrell’s monstrosity; Why the heck did Joe cut a circle out of the front of his dress and put a crystal border around the hole?; Kelli had a vision for her dress — it just wasn’t a good one. [Photos: Bravo]

On last night’s episode of Project Runway (I’m sorry if you…

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…

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 whe…

The Daily Squeeze: Miley Cyrus Nude, Christian Syriano For Eloise, And Mirrors

Miley Cyrus, whose album Breakout is released today, supposedly wants the lead role in the film version of Allison Burnett’s novel Undiscovered Girl, which would almost certainly involve nudity. That Vanity Fair photo shoot might have been a good thing, after all! [MSNBC]…

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…
