Anna McCraney Wins “The Fashion Show!” Surprised?

Bravo’s “Project Runway” spinoff, “The Fashion Show,” had a bit of a tough go, especially considering that the buzz about the new “Project Runway” on Lifetime largely eclipsed the attention of style watchers.

Kelly Rowland Is No Heidi Klum

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.

“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.
