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'm pretty sure Zac and Katie just adore each other and work together all of the time.  I am pretty sure Katie is always dressed by Zac, but I'll be corrected if wrong.

Mondo Project Runway 2019 spinoff:

After reading the above again I am a bit confused on the Mondo project thing. Is this a legit online show, like Last Chance Kitchen, or just a marketing gimmick? I don't want to mislead anyone.

I would be surprised if the bought it back and then can it after 2 seasons. Even with lower ratings and no Emmy (and to be fair, the last few Emmy nomination on Lifetime where probably down to name recognition and not for the quality of of the show) it's still gonna make them money.

Man, I hope not, this last season was wonderful and sane. That would make me sad. Going back to Bravo brought back actual fashion and a focus on fashion and positivity (ironically, the polar opposite of the real housewives and other types of shows on Bravo - which I watch - but don’t tell my friends). The last few seasons on Lifetime were awful.

However, I feel like Bravo wants things that cause the most drama versus actually understanding what their viewers want. I see that happening with the increased scripted drama on the real housewives (which is why I am started to give up).

This better stay on the air. I loved the last season lead by my babies Bishme and Christian.

It sounds like this was planted by Karlie’s team to hype her up as being so amazing that she’s leaving for other things. I thought she was the weakest part of the revamp.

after you wrote that I read the original "speculation" and I think you're onto something. That really looked like "rumors" specifically planted to make Karlie look like some big shot who has "much better things to do." Maybe she does, but for me, she was not all that.

Never mind, I found it and it is hilarious. I am now spoiled for the Ashley win but it was worth it to hear Tim Gunn's view of that season, along with his Nina mimicking.

Indeed (heh), this sounds like a preemptive strike in the even Karlie gets canned.

For what it's worth, I thought she did a nice job in her first season as host.

Chris March was so much like my wonderful cousin Dan who we lost at 39 Due to prostate cancer - also much too early.

His designs were amazing and unique and his spirit was infectious- RIP Chris, I hope you and Dan hang out together on the other side.

What a great story about his personality and talent.

I never met Chris March, but I sort of feel like I knew him. It breaks my heart a little that his last couple of years were spent in nursing homes where he said in other articles that he was miserable.

Yeah, but he still let his sense of humor and creativity occasionally shine, even in those dark days...

I can't wait! It looks like some of the models from last season like Thijin will be back.

Christian is beyond fabulous with his quips.

The trailer makes the show look expensive with all of the glam location shots.

She was a fantastic model last season, glad to see her return.  I would love to see Khrystyana from America's Next Top Model one day as a regular PR model, she's fierce and adorable all at once.  She was in Margarita's final collection in season 16 and she knows Mimi.

Me too!  I really enjoyed it  - including all the judges, Karlie and Christian.  They did a good job re-casting.

I started following one of the contestants for the new season, and she posted that she met up with another contestant for lunch. I'm hoping that they continue with the positivity among contestants that we saw last season too. Oh, and I'm hoping that it airs in Canada too (I'm talking to you, CTV Drama channel)!

I agree, I've always loved the seasons where you can tell everyone really appreciates each other. All Stars all-male finale was just great with their friendship and camaraderie. I love seeing that so much more than dramaz.

Are they doing the mixed sizes again? I hope not. They should, of course, have plus models but in separate competitions, I think, because the designers with the smaller models have an unfair advantage. I know that's not very PC, but thin and heavier people cannot rock the same things. To each her own!

To any Canadian viewers, CTV Drama (the renamed Bravo channel) confirmed that they will be airing Project Runway starting December 5.

Did y'all see that Zac Posen is going out of business?  Wonder if he had a sale?  (LOL)

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/zac-posen-closing-fashion-label-1251783

I agree that the models should be regular models (and I'm a plus sized woman).  For one thing watching the designers cringe is insulting, and for the other it does place a burden on them.  Perhaps they should alternate where all of the designers have a plus sized model every third week or so.  That would even the odds.

Even the plus sized designers seem to have problems designing for plus sized women.

Showcasing the designs for only super slender women/people, is akin to painting only in one color imo.  Yes, the art can be beautiful, but you're excluding an entire world of possibilities, and reducing the importance of all the other colors.

Mostly because they're simply using the same designs as for all other sizes, just making the patterns larger.  It's ridiculous and lazy.

ITA - you can't just add a few inches to each side of the pattern and think that's enough to make the same design look good on a larger body.

There's a similar issue with clothes that are not redesigned for petite sizes. Some brands claim that they sell petite sizes but all they do is cut two inches off the bottom of the pants or sleeves which means the proportions are all off.

It's not just the amount of fabric you are using that has to be changed. You have to look at how the design fits the body, where it hits the bust, the waist, etc. and make adjustments in the pattern.

Proportions are everything! At 5’2”, I am petite. But, with the jeans that I prefer, I find my size in a short rather than petite fit me better.

It doesn't help that petite is defined as 5'4" and below, so everything is made to fit at 5'4". I'm only 5' so most petites are actually too long. And, I'm also a plus size so finding clothes that fit correctly is a chore. I will only buy pants or skirts that are the right length for me now because I refuse to cuff (most of the time it looks terrible) or pay for alterations anymore. Some crop jeans actually come out right. I've had the best luck with Gloria Vanderbilt and Old Navy. The designers should have to do petites for a challenge.

Years ago, when Liz Claiborne was considered a better department store brand, I helped put on the annual Liz Claiborne fashion show and the companies representatives took the time to explain to my sales associates the proper differences between misses short and petite (rise). They also talked about the importance of attention to detail.  They didn't just cut off two inches, the resized for both petite and plus. Even going so far as to shrink (or enlarge) a pattern so it looked right.

Although the chyrons had her being from Georgia, this article makes much of Asma's and Nancy's Philly roots.  Nancy says they became friendly.  I think Nancy seems to be someone who'd be friendly with everyone!
