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 anyone this week. Instead, Heidi said the judges would wait until the collections were underway and would decide who goes to Bryant Park at that point. I didn’t think it was really a hard decision to make. They should have eliminated the designer that has only won one challenge on her own and who makes strikingly similar dresses each episode — Kenley! Keep reading »
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 created a rock outfit for Jerell, who turned Kenley into a pop diva with his design. The drama popped off from the beginning of the episode, but most of it centered around Miss Bratty Kenley, which is how I realized I have a major crush on Jerell.

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 dresses but she has some seriously bad manners. She’s been so rude, I feel betrayed by my style and she’s made me reconsider my love of retro. When Kenley laughed at poor Joe on the runway with her trained poodle protégé, it made me want to puke all over her handmade dress. You know when Tim Gunn has to sit you down for a talk, you better step off. Alas, Kenley thinks she is too cool for the way of the Gunn and just seems to be taking her self-image on a downward spiral. Karma is an even bigger bitch than you, Kenley! Everyone with cable television has seen you in action and just like these Bratz, your day is coming, doll. [Seattle PI] Keep reading »
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 whatever she wanted. Kenley dared to do the absolute unthinkable. Girlfriend disrespected Tim Gunn. Keep reading »
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 she had a foot injury. I guess she could wear sneakers, but not heels. And sitting at a fashion show was so much more painful than a 1/2-mile swim, 18-mile bike ride and 4-mile run. [People] Keep reading »
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 all three of them lacked design innovation — or had collections that were just plain ugly. If you can’t wait until the season finale, then click ahead, but if spoilers grind your gears, don’t click “CONTINUE READING.” Keep reading »
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 the zodiac. Once Tim specified that the designs had to be based on the zodiac, I knew they would either be hot, stinking, costume-y messes or chances for the designers to really shine. I was disappointed by half of them. Keep reading »
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.) Keep reading »
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 some items that have these trends and are available now.

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 in A Foreign Affair. Yes, Diane Von Frickin’ Furstenberg took time away from her fashion empire to not only meet the designers, but also judge the runway competition. She also let the designers use her own fabrics to create the outfit. Since Diane has a longstanding partnership with American Express, the winning outfit will be sold exclusively to American Express customers. Keep reading »
