Project Runway’s Kenley Rips Off Alexander McQueen

The judges said it and the pictures speak for themselves (McQueen on the left, Kenley on the right). Girlfriend may not have been original, but the craftsmanship on her knockoff was still better than Jerrel’s doo-dad hot mess. … More »


Project Runway: The Cop Out

Looks We Liked: Jerell’s Jewel Of A Dress; Leanne’s Soft Stunner

The designers had to create gowns inspired by photos taken at the New York Botanical Garden. There were a lot of tears on the runway this week, so I guess the producers decided to keep the drama flowing because the judges didn’t eliminate… More »


Project Runway: I’m In Love With Jerell

Looks We Loved (From Left to Right): Jerell’s Pop-ified Kenley; Korto’s Punked-Out Suede

For this week’s challenge, the contestants had to design for each other based on a musical genre. Kenley created a hip-hop outfit for Leanne, who designed a country music outfit for Korto. Korto made a punk-inspired look for Suede. And Suede… More »


Project Runway’s Kenley: I Take Back My Girl Crush

Red lipstick, brown hair, ‘tude-tastic, and she likes to wear feathers — on paper, Kenley from Project Runway sounds like my celeb doppleganger! It was girl crush at first episode. However, as the season has progressed, that brat has broken my heart and now she seems more like my evil twin. Kenley may make ladylike… More »


Project Runway: Don’t Mess With Tim Gunn!

Was anyone else as horrified by Kenley’s behavior on last night’s episode of “Project Runway” as I was? I mean, forget her incredible rudeness when she laughed at poor Joe’s design on the runway, or the unbearable narcissism she displayed in being paired with a mini-her of a client whom she could easily mold into… More »


J.Lo Bails On Project Runway But Does Triathlon

Jennifer Lopez completed her first-ever triathlon in Malibu in under two-and-a-half hours on Sunday. The Nautica-sponsored charity event helped to raise money for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. This was a great moment in girl power and philanthropy, but we’re more fascinated by the fact that J.Lo canceled her guest judge appearance on Project Runway because… More »


Project Runway: Final Collections

I know I’m getting a little ahead of Project Runway’s TV schedule, but I just couldn’t resist discussing the final collections of the remaining six contestants, especially since photos of the shows are available everywhere, including Bravo. Although Jerell, Joe, Kenley, Suede, Korto and Leanne debuted their collections, I suspect the men were decoys because… More »


Project Runway: Designers Get What They Deserve

Looks We Hated [From Left to Right]: Kenley’s Mother of the Corpse Bride; Blayne’s Circus Freak Hideousness; Suede’s Genie In a Bottle; Terri’s Ease On Off The Runway Costume

This week on Project Runway, the designers were partnered with season five’s eliminated contestants and were challenged to create an avant-garde look based on… More »


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.) … More »


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… More »


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… More »


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 dudes… More »


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… More »


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… More »


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… More »


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. More »


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… More »


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… More »
