Project Runway In the Media

Recommended Posts

Season 13 Episode 11. Designers are sent out to find women for the challenge. Tim tells them NOT to choose women who look like models. So they all end up choosing skinny women Lol Not much of a challenge to design for women who may not be "model skinny" but they are still, regular normal size women. Another stupid "challenge"

So staying on topic: did Heidi have her baby yet?

WTF? NO TIM GUNN??? Say it isn't so! I love him!! I don't know if I'll continue to watch if he is gone.

Thanks-- never heard of that tall super model. And I've now learned more than I wanted to know about her inlaws.

Oh and her parents followed the KK (Kardashian) model of naming their daughters. Two strikes against her now :)

Ugh, Karlie "my brother-in-law is a Nazi" Kloss.  Final straw for me.  Not watching!

Chilling but I am not going to judge her on the creep her sister married.   Is there more to this?

That's a bit mangled. She (Karlie) married Jared's brother.

For me it's all about C. Siri, and I absolutely will be watching......I cannot WAIT for him to call somebody's "creation" a hot, tranny mess!  *LOL*

I strongly suspect you won't ever be hearing that phrase again, given that tranny is widely considered a hateful slur against transgender people.

This is so confusing because Tim Gunn just instagrammed he and Heidi are casting for a fashion design show on Amazon. 

I think there’s room for 2 fashion design shows, bring it, but ish is gettin’ blurry.

A real accessories wall! Praise be!

Considering the fact we were close to getting the Dollar Tree Accessory Wall in the previous version, anything would be an improvement. But I did love the cute moment of Christian noting one of his own designs there.

Why does Heidi have two pairs of what look like identical shoes on the floor next to her???

I'm watching! The production value looks so low--- it's not really, just technology has advanced so much in the last decade. Heidi & Tim Gunn look so young. Where has the time gone?! The button bag with picking models. Chris March's belly laugh. Parson's. This season is clearly all about Christian Siriano. I'd forgotten how much he talked to the other contestants about their designs. Opinionated, snarky, but always benevolent. He's going to be a great mentor! And his asymmetrical faux-hawk was a moment.

Well those are big gains from the dreck that was on Lifetime, especially as some of us hate watched the last episodes of PRAS which is included in the totals 🤪

I love Christian.  Laverne Cox looked amazing.

I was pleased looking at the pictures of the Met Ball this year because as someone who knows zero about fashion,

1-Saw Ashley Graham and said "OH DAPPER DAN!"  Then saw the man himself and was happy PR taught me who he was and I loved Ashley's jacket dress.

2-Was watching Gaga's entrance and thought "OH-it's Brandon!"  He dressed her (and undressed her!)

3-Also found it meta that Zac Posen designed Katie Holmes dress (she looked so pretty) and in Oceans 8, she and Zac are seated at Daphne's table.  (And laughed at Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kahling, and Awkwafina being guests as opposed to being part of a heist).

I also saw some of the Met Gala stuff. I came here to ask if that was indeed Brandon doing Gaga because I didn't get a great look at his face while he was doing all the reveals. 

I also saw several shots of Karlie and it is odd to me because she doesn't photograph well (facially) in the photos I looked at and wonder how she became such a hot commodity. She gives off a vampire-ish look in all the photos. Elaine on the other hand looks model ready and I wonder how she never became a model. Also the dress on Karlie was only listed as Gucci in the article I looked at, not a collaboration with Dapper Dan so I didn't make that connection. 

Off to search for some Christian gala outfits now...

eta Found this link of US Mag reporter going to his shop for a gala dress. I love the name of his shop and the little sign out front.

Isn't she way too short? I don't know how tall she is but she strikes me as "normal" rather than "redwood tree" height.

Probably, lol. I am that annoying person who thinks out loud with little real information. 

Full disclosure: I never watched Dawson's Creek but I have an obsession with Katie Holmes (and her sweetie Jamie Foxx!), I stalk places for articles of what she is doing (usually she is walking around looking like a hobo woman in what turns out to be very expensive clothes) and I came across another gala PR sighting. Zac Posen dressed her and it is fantastic. 

As a newbie to PR I really had no clue the clout of the judging team or Christian so I am enjoying the show a bit differently after finding this out.

More info about Karlie’s Dapper Dan dress (from her stylist):

[Karlie’s] stylist Karen Kaiser describes the new Project Runway host‘s Met Gala look — which has been in the works for two weeks — as “chic chic camp.”

“For Karlie we wanted to create a dress from Dapper Dan’s DNA and exaggerate it in a very chic way for Karlie to wear on the red carpet,” Kaiser says. “Dapper Dan is famous for his logomania streetwear. We started with an existing Dapper Dan for Gucci track jacket with voluminous sleeves and used the most extravagant gold lame logomania fabric and created a red carpet dress from this.”

As for how Kloss decided to collaborate with the designer?

“Karlie and Dapper Dan started their relationship through Project Runway,” Kaiser reveals. “It’s incredible to see this relationship flourish and evolve to the red carpet for the Met Gala.”

“It is a historical moment as it is Dapper Dan’s first Met Gala and the table is the Dapper Dan/Gucci table,” she adds. “Dapper Dan’s story really is the great American story and we are thrilled to be a part of it.”

In case anyone else was as curious as I was about that eye winking.  

She is just ridiculously gorgeous.  Christian looks exhausted.

This behind the scenes video of Lady Gaga's Met Gala look includes Brandon talking about the process of designing and creating all the pieces.
