Heidi Klum talks about season nine of 'Project Runway' on 'Good Morning America'Season nine of 'Project Runway' kicks off Thursday with a big elimination that will send four of the 20 semi-finalists packing. Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, and Michael Kors spoke about the first episode, and one semi-finalist in particular, Monday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 7AM on ABC).

The contestant in question was former Miss Trinidad and Tobago, Anya Ayoung-Chee. "We were a little skeptical when we saw Anya's rack," said Garcia. "Her what?" asked 'GMA' anchor Lara Spencer. "Her rack of clothes," clarified Garcia.

Who Won 'Project Runway' Season 8? (VIDEO)

Who Won 'Project Runway' Season 8?The goal of 'Project Runway' -- as described by Tim Gunn's catchphrase -- is to "Make it work." Of course, it's a lot of work to make it work, and not everyone can handle it. Some players don't have the talent, some don't have the drive. It takes 14 weeks to sort the good from the bad.

But nothing lasts forever -- not even the lengthiest season of 'Runway' ever. And so we reached the finale (Thu., 9PM ET on Lifetime). Three finalists remained: Andy South, Gretchen Jones, and Mondo Guerra. Who would win? Heidi Klum called it the "toughest decision" in the show's history -- but really, it was and it wasn't.

'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.

Maya Quits 'Project Runway,' Anthony Returns (VIDEO)

Maya Quits 'Project Runway'Judge Nina Garcia says Maya's designs on 'Project Runway' (Thu., 10PM ET on LIFE) are "very referential," prompting the recent graduate to quit the show. "I'm feeling like I'm not fully developed as a designer yet," she explains.

But her loss is another ex-contestant's gain. "Here she is, boooys!" says Anthony, who was ousted last week. "Hell, who wouldn't want Anthony back?" he says, all smiles. Indeed.

Watch the video after the jump.

Review: Project Runway - Back to New York

The contestants of season seven of Project Runway
(S07E01) As if last season of Project Runway was a bad hiccup, we're returning to New York with Michael Korrs and Nina Garcia permanently on the judging panel.

The show opened up on the roofs of the Atlas Apartments. The energy of the show felt back to normal in New York City. The first challenge was borrowed from season four: pick from a whole ton of fabrics to display the designer's point of view. The twist was that the contestants had to edit down to five fabrics. In the end, most of the designers edited down to two fabrics. They were given one day, which felt steep for day one.

All Kona wants for Festivus

sue sylvesterI finally, and with great difficulty got the tree up, I've somehow gotten roped into holding a cookie exchange at my house this weekend, and I have glitter in places where glitter should not be. What's that smell? It smells like Festivus to me. While the main thing I want this year is to just lie very, very still in a dark room for a week or so, this is a TV blog, so let's talk about what TV could do to make me happy!

  • Stop with the long hiatuses already! I don't get to see a new episode of V until March, and I'm being forced into leading a Glee-less existence until April. Give it up already! If you have 3 months between new episodes, it's a new season, why not call it that? You know what I have been doing for the past 11 weeks? Watching the first 11 episodes of Dexter. This week, I will be watching episode 12, and then the season will be over. It's efficient and satisfying. The networks need to get on board.

Review: Project Runway - Best of the Best

Irina Shabayeva looks at the other contestants
(S06E11) Project Runway finally explained why different people won challenges this season instead of just Irina and Althea winning all of them. This week's challenge was to make a companion piece to the contestants' winning looks. Unfortunately, Logan has never won a challenge. With one day and $100, they had to make it work.

On paper, the challenge sounds like an interesting way of thinking of cohesive collections. Most of these designers have an aesthetic (Carol Hannah doesn't like pants, Christopher likes full skirts). For Gordana, Christopher, and Logan, the companion pieces that they made neither complimented, nor improved on their original outfits.

Review: Project Runway - Around the World in Two Days

Christopher Straub works on his outfit
(S06E10) This week on Project Runway, the challenge was to become inspired by several locations that Michael Kors loves. They were given $150 and the day to make a pretty outfit. Why does it seem like there's always one contestant that gets a topic they know nothing about and makes something not even close?

There are only a few challenges left, and I have to admit that other than Irina, the rest of the competitors' outfits have become more and more boring. Production really needs to give these contestants one or two days off between challenges to recharge their batteries.

Project Runway: Season premiere

Tim_Gunn_Lifetime_Project_Runway(S06E01) Project Runway is back! With few exceptions, the show seems remarkably unchanged by the move to Lifetime, so those who were fearful that without the Bravo touch Project Runway would cease to be... Project Runway, your fears should be allayed. The one significant change, one I'm still not sure about, is the move from New York to Los Angeles. New York just screams fashion to me, the rag trade, and the buzz of Seventh Avenue. L.A. doesn't, but we shall see how it plays out.

Meanwhile, Heidi, Michael, Nina and Tim were there, the touchstones of the show, and as the new contestants were unveiled, PR was off and running.

In a smart programming move, Lifetime ran a Project Runway: All Stars edition before the Season Six premiere. Seeing familiar faces from the Bravo years immediately sent a message to viewers that this was the same Project Runway.

Nina Garcia is Running in Heels

by Kona Gallagher, posted Sep 11th 2008 8:38PM
Nina GarciaYou know the old saying, "looking good is the best revenge?" Well, looking good on television is even better. To that end, Nina Garcia, the acid-tongued Colombian judge on Project Runway, is appearing on a new reality show. Garcia will be starring on Style Network's new series, Running in Heels. Heels follows the staff at women's magazine Marie Claire, which Garcia joined a short while ago after leaving her long-time position at Elle magazine.

Garcia's split from Elle was allegedly not on the best terms, so it's probably extra sweet for her that Running in Heels is a direct competitor to CW's Stylista; a reality competition show taking place at, you guessed it -- Elle magazine.

Project Runway: What's Your Sign?

by Annie Wu, posted Sep 11th 2008 8:38AM
Christian and Heidi(S05E09) My last review began oh-so bluntly with "I am so full of anger", which was a pretty good summation of the grumpiness that would follow. This episode triggered some very familiar feelings and, while some of you thought I was being a little too hard on the designers, especially Kenley, I can't see how anyone could wonder why after this episode. Don't get me wrong, I'm still a Project Runway fan. If I only half-cared for it, the drop in quality of this show would not affect me quite as badly. But when a show I love so much and have constantly praised and confidently recommended takes such a sharp drop within one year, it's disappointing, to say the least.

As horrible as it sounds, I'm actually looking forward to the Lifetime move now, despite my earlier worries, because at least PR will be on a network that wants them around. The same can not be said for Bravo, which is currently treating PR like it's the ex that still has to live in the apartment because they're legally obligated to finish paying half this year's rent.

Project Runway: Good Queen Fun

by Annie Wu, posted Aug 21st 2008 9:43AM
Project Runway(S05E06) Sadly enough, I think this was the first time I've had fun watching the fifth season. That's right: it took drag queens to get me excited about Project Runway again. Actually, I think Bravo should dump all of those ridiculously uninteresting faux-PR shows like Shear Genius and Top Design and make a spin-off all about designing stuff for drag queens and kings. It could be set in Baltimore's Hampden and be hosted by John Waters and/or RuPaul. That would be infinitely better than watching Jaclyn Smith make weak attempts at passing constructive criticism to beauty school drop-outs playing with safety scissors. Ahem. I'm sorry. Can you tell I'm not that fond of Shear Genius?

Project Runway: Welcome to the Jungle

by Annie Wu, posted Aug 14th 2008 8:23AM
Brooke Shields(S05E05) In this episode, Brooke Shields stopped by to have the designers make something for her character to wear in the new season of Lipstick Jungle. Two things surprised me. A) Lipstick Jungle hasn't been canceled yet and B) Brooke Shields still looks fantastic. Maybe it's because I wasn't watching in HD, but still.

For the first time this season, the designers were broken into teams for the challenge. Last season, it seemed like the majority of the season consisted of team challenges, so I was surprised that it took five episodes before they got around to it for this group. I guess I was surprised by a lot of things in this episode.

Project Runway: Rings of Glory

by Annie Wu, posted Aug 7th 2008 8:42AM
Project Runway(S05E04) Ladies and gentlemen, I think we have witnessed the beginnings of a new low in Project Runway. I don't recall ever seeing a group of designers so completely miss the mark in a challenge. Most of the outfits weren't atrocious as straight-up garments, but in the context of the challenge, all of them were terrible in one way or another.

I think my horror is fully justified, as this is the first challenge in which a freakin' skort was in the top three. A skort. The very thought of a skort makes me want to set a Limited Too alight, so imagine the severe trauma that ensued after I ever-so briefly entertained the idea of America's top athletes representing the country in front of the rest of the world... wearing freakin' skorts. I have a mess to clean up.

Project Runway: Bright Lights/Big City

by Annie Wu, posted Jul 31st 2008 9:02AM
Project Runway(S05E03) Question: What were the judges smoking in this episode? More specifically, were they smoking one of the hideous creations from this challenge?

This challenge was pretty straightforward, as the designers were dropped off at different locations in a rainy New York City and told to pull inspiration from their surroundings. NYC streets at night are rough and sleek and bright and dark, all at the same time. But looking at this episode's outfits, you'd never know. In fact, you'd probably be too scared to step foot in the Big Apple ever again, for fear of being mauled by psychedelic, leggy, cha-cha-ing monsters.
