Last night, Michael Kors‘ nearest and dearest came out to support him at the Golden Heart Gala at New York City’s Cunard Building. The evening’s red carpet was heavy on the simple sportswear, and guests’ looks fell squarely in to three camps: oranges, metallics, and blacks & blues — in other words, signature Kors, through and through.
It’s always nerve-wracking the week the designers get a challenge that makes them totally flounder, and it happens at least once a season thanks to the diabolical minds at Lifetime. This week was that challenge for the Season 10 designers, and it’s not hard to see why — they were put in charge of designing a new costume for the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes.
Oh, boy. This week the designers had to raise money in teams of three by selling T-shirts and various other tchotchkes they made in the workroom to buy their fabric at Mood. This went over about as well as you can imagine.
The contest between the female and male designers that has been brewing all season, whose opening shots were the dwindling number of female designers and the girls branding the remaining dudes the “Silk Chiffon(z)ies,” finally came to a head last night.
Every year, the Project Runway designers have a challenge where they have to make a garment for a normal-sized person. And every time, at least some of the designers moan and whine and cry about how difficult it is going to be to dress a real live human being because “they have to use more fabric” or “the patterns are going to be more difficult to cut” or that they just unabashedly hate fat people. This would be odious on its own, except I feel that the eliminations ought to be based on how well the designers treat their clients. Period. In fact, let the clients decide who to send home!
As much as we’re dreading this year’s Fashion’s Night Out, we were pretty amazed at its new PSA. It failed to hype us up for FNO, but it did make us giggle. The normal fashion crew of Marc Jacobs, Karlie Kloss, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Paré, and Solange Knowles make appearances in the video. But wait, hold the phone — is that Tyson Chandler?? Yeah, he’s in it too! And why is Darren Criss singing a Madonna song?
This week, the designers were forced to work in two teams to create two collections. The winning collection will be featured in the newest iteration of Marie Claire, a publication specifically tailored toward working women As usual, the designers can barely stop snipping at each other long enough to pull it off.
Last week we brought you heaps of glorious photos of models’ nuptials, so this week we figured it was the designers’ turn! These ceremonies run the gamut from Michael Kors‘ relaxed beachside vows (he and hubby Lance LePere went to see The Help after they said “I Do”) to Victoria Beckham‘s high-profile nineties extravaganza (more than 500 guests watched her walk the aisle in a Vera Wang gown with a 20-foot train).
Last week, when the designers had to make a garment for former contestants, Raul Osorio was let go and Christopher Palu and Andrea Katz had a rather nasty fight about whose fault it was that they were in the bottom three, leading Andrea to dejectedly say she would almost be relieved to be eliminated. Naturally, the contestants all reacted as though she’d said she wished she were dead.
The tenth season of Heidi Klum‘s Project Runway has only been filming for a week, but two contestants have already left the show on their own accord.
For some people, last night’s Obama fundraiser hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker was a success. But for others, it was a big ol’ mess.
“If Michael weren’t a designer, he could probably have his own stand-up show,” joked Fern Mallis last night about guest Michael Kors at the latest installment of the “Fashion Icons” series at the 92Y. And we doubt anyone in the audience would disagree (including Anna Wintour herself).
Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! In honor of this very special day, we’ve taken the expression “mother knows best” to heart and rounded up some of the best pieces of advice that top designers say they ever received from their moms.
Never thought you could own a piece of Michael Kors for less than $20? Well soon you can! The fashion brand is set for an initial public offering, which means its shares will finally be publicly traded — and it expects that when they hit the market, they’ll go for between $17 and $19.
Literally nothing changed! All four designers were selected to show at Fashion Week, and Viktor Luna, Joshua McKinley, Kimberly Goldson and Anya Ayoung-Chee had two days to pull their collections together.
It’s “Part One” of the finale, and we open with Heidi Klum explaining to the designers that they have five weeks and a budget of $9,000 to create a 10-look collection at home that they’ll bring back to NYC. I’m really interested to see what everyone comes up with, and I even like everybody who’s left! Well, except for Josh.
It’s the final challenge! Whoever makes it through this round gets to create a collection, and then the top three will show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
This week, the designers (once again) look to the ’70s for inspiration. Only this time, there’s missing money, tears from Tim Gunn, and Olivia Palermo.
This was the week of Emmy style, London runway shows, and tons of Lara Stone magazine covers. We attended Tony Bennett‘s 85th birthday party and investigated the Walmart cheer. We also thought a whole lot about the Missoni for Target mess.
