Joshua Targets Bert With His Drama on 'Project Runway' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 9th 2011 1:40AM
'Project Runway'Bert was the last one picked for a team on this week's 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM ET on Lifetime), but it wasn't Bert who created the most drama and shut down progress on a fairly regular basis. That said, he was involved, as Joshua had chosen the older contestant as the latest target of his pointless tirade.

Joshua's point of contention with Bert this week? "I feel people who have dirty mouths," Joshua said, "they're not intelligent." In frustration with the printer, Bert said, "So much for my f****** clocks." Ergo, Bert's an idiot.

Joshua even lashed out at Tim Gunn, and nobody yells at Tim Gunn. He's just far too polished for that.

Olivier Wants to Glue His Dress to the Model on 'Project Runway' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 2nd 2011 2:30AM
'Project Runway'We're certainly not designers, but even we could have guessed that gluing a dress to your model is never a good idea. Olivier was running out of time and was concerned the top of his dress would fall down, so he came up with this brilliant idea on 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM ET on Lifetime).

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Luckily, Tim Gunn caught wind of it before he had completely slathered the model's chest with glue. He showed up to advise Olivier that this is clearly against the rules. The clothing must stay up of its own accord, which you would think is kind of obvious.

Bert and Viktor Clash Over a Dress on 'Project Runway' (VIDEO)

Tim Gunn looks at Bert and Viktor's dress on 'Project Runway'When you're striving to separate yourself from the pack on a reality show competition, having to work with a partner can be a tough proposition. That seems especially true on 'Project Runway' (Thursdays, 9PM on Lifetime), where it's difficult enough turning your style into an actual physical piece of clothing without having to meld that with someone else's ideas. Viktor Luna and Bert Keeter struggled with that tension on Thursday's episode, and didn't exactly rise to the occasion.

The pair partnered to make what looked like two different dresses on the top and bottom, and argued over it throughout the whole process. "I wanted to do a contemporary look, and he was that, 'Well, I really think we should do this,'" said Keeter. "And I had some other idea, and, no, 'this is what we have to do.'" Luna, of course, saw just the opposite, that it was Keeter's obstinacy that was the problem.

Tim Gunn Shares Theory on Bad Fashion and Monkeys (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Apr 20th 2010 3:30PM
On 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated), Tim Gunn of 'Project Runway' shared an interesting theory on bad fashion that somehow relates to zoo animals. According to Gunn, perpetrators of bad fashion get used to the way they look in the same way a visitor to the zoo becomes acclimated to the terrible smell in the monkey house.

Gunn first describes how the smell of primates at the zoo becomes less and less noticeable over time. Then, he compares the same phenomenon to those guilty of making awful fashion choices. "I can't help but think that they look at themselves in the mirror and think, 'You look ridiculous.' But then, by standing there for 20 minutes or so, they think, 'You know, it's not so bad now,'" he said.

'Project Runway' - 'Finale Part 1' Recap

Jay and Mila await judgement.
(S07E13) It's crunch time for 'Project Runway' as the contestants make their ten piece final collection at home. While Seth Aaron and Emilio are sailing pretty, Jay and Mila had to face-off. Tim's visits are probably the best episode for Tim fanatics. He gets to interact with the contestants, but also becomes human watching him eat meals and ride bikes. I need to have a looped gif of Tim on the trampoline from this episode.

On the whole, I'm impressed by the unfinished collections of all the contestants; they all look like they were closer to finished product than previous seasons. The contestants have very distinct points of view so it will be very interesting to see how the finale pans out.

'Project Runway' - 'The Big, Top Designers' Recap

The Project Runway contestants watch a circus performance
(S07E12) The contestants have finally reached the final challenge on 'Project Runway' before the final collection. The final dress has to be a high end dress inspired by performances from Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey. They had two days and $300 to create the best dress they could.

One effect that was used really well this episode was the montage of outfits the contestants used during judging. It made you realize that you went through twelve episodes already. Granted, they skipped several of the dud outfits, but it does show that people like Seth Aaron and Mila have a strong point of view.

'Project Runway' - 'Sew Much Pressure' Recap

Jonathan tries his best to sew on Project Runway
(S07E11) In a 'Project Runway' first, not only do we have one quitter, we have two. In the first fifteen minutes, Maya realized that she's still too young to be ready to show for the finale. I found it weird because the show likes putting a mix of designers together, including people right out of school like Daniel Vosovic or Jillian Lewis. While Maya may have been using other designs as influence during the show, she would have had several months to find inspiration before the finale show. With that being said, I respect her decision and wish her the best.

The second quitter comes from one of the models. Valeria gets a high end gig. As a model, that is probably the best decision. She had moderate exposure on a television show, and managed to get a gig from a high end clientele. Take the money and run.

'Project Runway' Sneak Peek: Six Become Five (VIDEO)

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 30th 2010 12:00PM
Project RunwayWhen Tim Gunn enters a room on 'Project Runway' (Thu., 10PM ET on LIFE), everybody takes notice and it's usually with laughs and smiles. However, when Tim Gunn enters a room and asks to have a word with you outside, it's not all puppies and flowers.

In this clip, Gunn takes Seth Aaron out of the work room and returns alone. What happened? Your guess is as good as ours, but Gunn announces, "There are five of you. We were fully expecting for there to be six." Lifetime has teased that a designer is forced to leave -- and another returns. What a hot mess!

'Project Runway' - 'Hey, That's My Fabric' Recap

 Vivienne Tam shows the contestants a pretty butterfly
(S07E10) Designer Vivienne Tam visited 'Project Runway' this week. The challenge revolved around creating an original textile using HP computers. Along with the original print, the contestants had $100 to buy supplemental fabric at Mood and two days to complete the look. Maya has the most trouble because she isn't very comfortable using patterns in general.

The concept for the challenge was great. I understand that the time spent on the HP's was just shameless advertising for their sponsor, but it was important for the challenge. It looks like so much fun to run a paintbrush against a monitor and have very accurate responses.

'Project Runway' - 'Takin' It To The Streets' Recap

Tim Gunn and Collier Strong talk to the contestants of Project Runway
(S07E09) Collier Strong makes his seasonal 'Project Runway' appearance to pimp out the L'Oreal makeup. Luckily, we're finally at the halfway point with only eight designers left. I can finally distinguish between all the contestants. This week they were paired up and had to use the culture, architecture, and trends of an area in Manhattan to create a day and night look for only $300.

Chinatown - Anthony & Maya
East Village - Jay & Mila
Upper East Side - Amy & Jonathan
Harlem - Emilio & Seth Aaron

All of the places have very distinct aesthetics, yet somehow Amy & Jonathan manage to botch the idea of a high-class, pale color paired with black.

'Project Runway' - 'The Elements of Fashion' Recap

Project Runway's instructions are revealed on the roof.
(S07E08) 'Project Runway' uses this episode to appease their sponsor Garnier. With one day and $150 the contestants had to create outfits based off of the four natural elements somehow making sure that their models hair was incorporated. While I was hoping that the contestants would have had the four seasons instead, they all strayed away from being horrendously literal like Season Five's zodiac challenge. Instead, many were vague and picked blacks and grays to represent their outfits. While it is daring to go so dark, it poses the question: are these contestants afraid of color?

The Elements

Air - Jay, Jonathan, and Seth Aaron
Water - Maya and Ben
Fire - Anthony and Amy
Earth - Mila and Emilio

'Project Runway' - 'Hard Work' Recap

The cast of Project Runway have to use hardwear materials.
(S07E07) After a week off, 'Project Runway' returns with an unconventional material challenge. In this week's challenge, competitors had $150 to create an outfit from materials at a hardware store. While some competitors grab obvious things like sandpaper, sheet metal, and chicken wire, others were tempted by paint trays and washers. Luckily for Seth Aaron, he got to make something that was a bit boring, but was immune from the last challenge.

'Project Runway' - 'A Little Bit of Fashion' Recap

One client this week on Project Runway
(S07E06) There have been several memorable theme challenges on 'Project Runway,' including dogs, prom, and postal workers, but this week the contestants had to create an outfit for a little girl. Of course it wouldn't be 'Project Runway' without a twist, and Tim announced that the contestants would have to create a corresponding outfit for their models.

I was confused as to how all these children managed to get invited to the show. Unlike the prom girls that all went to the same high school in season four, we never got any explanation. We'll just have to accept how cute the girls are. After seeing this challenge, I hope a future challenge will be a 'Toddlers and Tiaras' childrens' pageant challenge.

Cobie Smulders is Starstruck by Tim Gunn (VIDEO)

Cobie Smulders was so starstruck by Tim Gunn of 'Project Runway' that she fumbled her words when he guest starred on the 100th episode of 'How I Met Your Mother,' she said on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

"I was starstruck. I was, like, flubbing ... my words," Smulders said. "He's just sweet and he's so genuine."

Review: 'Project Runway' - 'Design Your Heart Out'

by Michael Pascua, posted Feb 5th 2010 4:00AM
This weeks clients on Project Runway have been affected by heart disease.
(S07E04) The models take a backseat on 'Project Runway' tonight with the first client-based challenge. With $100 and one day, the contestants had to create a gala dress for Campbell's Address Your Heart Program. Their clients were all impacted by heart disease in different forms. The winner gets a bonus of their dress getting a limited run, and it will be shown during New York Fashion week with the designer.

It was nice seeing an apples to apples comparison where one color was forced upon all the contestants. The Macy's blue challenge last season wasn't as much of a comparison because they got to use several shades of blue and were paired up.
