Gretchen Upsets Tim Gunn on 'Project Runway'Tim Gunn is pissed?! Who has upset the usually calm and collected anchor of 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM ET on LIFE)? The entire losing team, basically. It wasn't their designs that angered him; it was their "behavior and demeanor" in front of the judges.

The panel asked the group to say who they thought was the weakest designer. Gretchen took the reins, initially saying they stood united but quickly turning on Michael, while the rest of the team remained largely silent.

'Project Runway' - Ivy Faints and Has to Go to the Hospital (VIDEO)

'Project Runway' - Ivy Faints and Has to Go to the HospitalHaving a passion for fashion is a good thing. But if you go too far with it, then you can get in trouble. That's the lesson on the new 'Project Runway' (Thu., 9PM ET on Lifetime).

[Spoiler alert.]

The latest episode involves the players having to make an outfit out of supplies from a party store. And contestant Ivy Higa has a little trouble completing the challenge. She ends up panicking and trying to fix her clothing at the last minute. Then, she mentions feeling "shaky" and "lightheaded." Uh-oh. Not good. Also, we think this is what is known as "foreshadowing."

Sure enough, Ivy ends up fainting from exhaustion. A medical team arrives and has to wheel her out in a stretcher, then put her in an ambulance. Poor kid. Hopefully, Ivy will be okay.

Insulting the Stars on 'I Get That a Lot' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted May 19th 2010 11:00PM
Insulting the Stars on 'I Get That a Lot''I Get That a Lot' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS) is a reality show where celebrities take regular, working-class jobs. Eventually, the stars are recognized, but then they deny being who they really are. For example, Martha Stewart will refuse to admit to being Martha Stewart, even when she is told that she looks just like her. The inevitable response from the stars on the show is -- you guessed it -- "I get that a lot."

On the most recent episode, one of the stars gets into trouble while meeting someone who isn't actually a fan of his. The bad thing happens to Nick Jonas -- who gets exposed as looking just like Nick Jonas while working undercover in a clothing store.

Unfortunately, the woman who sees him isn't that positive about the whole Jonas Brothers experience. "They're terrible," she says to Nick. "Musically, they're awful." Nick handles the whole thing pretty well, all things considered.

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.

'Project Runway' - 'Run for Cover' Recap

Tim Gunn and Joanna Coles
(S07E05) With five challenges down, 'Project Runway' claims to have the biggest challenge ever. This season continues to sweep the previous season under the floor as if the last season was a hiccup. This week the contestants had to design an outfit for the cover of the April edition Marie Claire, which would be modeled by Heidi Klum. They had one day and $150.

Joanna Coles, editor-in-chief of Marie Claire magazine, had a lot of specification for the dresses: the eye-catching design had to be above the waist, there will be text so there can't be black fabric or loud patterns, and they have to take into account that the April edition will have a spring-like feeling to it. Along with that, the contestants also had to consider a color palate that would match Heidi.

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."
