Irina Shabayeva is the new winner of Project Runway 6. The New Yorker designer won over all the judges with her mostly all black design collection, winning $100,000 towards her line, an agent and a trip to Paris.
The judges Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia and Susie Menkes chose Irina over Carol Hannah Whitfield, who came in third, and Althea Harper, the runner-up. All three women all showed their strong collections back at February’s fashion week in Bryant Park.
Irina’s collection was inspired by New York, right down to the detailed T-shirts worn beneath knitwear armor. “My collection is really about New York,” Irina said before her portion of the runway show. Congrats to Irina on winning the 6th season of the show.
Reality stars and celebs were dressed up and ready to party this weekend in lieu of Halloween. Pictured above is Melissa Rycroftand fiance Tye Strickland.
The most interesting costume would have to go to Spencer Prattand Heidi Montag, as the two attention whores dressed up as Jon & Kate Gosselin. Which this brings us to Jon Gosselin’s costume, and well you just have to see this for yourself.
Another interesting costume would have to be that of Heidi Klum and her husband Seal.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Danielle Staub’slife has been filled with controversy following the show’s first season. On a much brighter note, her daughter Christine Staub recently signed a modeling contract with IMG Models – the same agency that represents super models including Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Taylor Momsen.
Though the15-year-old high school sophomore is taking test photos, she is expected to hit the catwalk as early as September during the New York Fashion week, according to IMG.
“She came into our offices and we were blown away!” Ivan Bart, SVP and Managing Director of IMG Models Worldwide, tellsPEOPLE. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.”
“This is all very new to me,” Christine told The Daily . “I’ve never really done any modeling before, so I’m just learning while I have a chance and being guided by the best in the business. I’m also getting used to industry people looking at my face so closely!”
We certainly hope that her life is nothing like her mother’s past. From watching the show, she seems like a smart young lady.
