Miami Club Rum Official Partnership Launch With William Levy

With no new Real Housewives of Atlanta episode to snark tonight, we’ll have to snark on the next best thing: reality star fashion!  The reality stars stepped out this week for RuPaul’s Drag Race season premiere,  to host events, and get their self-promotion on in other ways. 

RuPaul and his crew celebrated the season premiere of Drag Race at The Mayan in Los Angeles.  Big Ang hit up the circus while Kendall Jenner channeled Cookie Monster on the runway in NYC.  Former Real Housewives of Miami stars Adriana De Moura and Alexia Echevarria celebrated the launch of a new rum while Jax Taylor hosted a post-Fashion Convention event.  Check out all of these photos and many more below!

I really like Project Runway, but good gracious why do they keep insisting on switching things up every season?  First it jumped networks, then it brought back all-star contestants (I do think that was brillz), now it's losing Michael Kors?  Can anything short of a miracle (and/or Austin Scarlett) revitalize this program?

Every reality show run(way)s its course, and this fashion competition is getting ready to start its eleventh season.  Not only are we losing the snippy and fabulous Michael Kors, the competition has changed as well.  Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled at the return of host Heidi Klum and judge Nina Garcia, and I think that Zac Posen will be an amazing replacement for Mr. Kors.  I just really don't do all that well with change.  Of course, through all the ups, downs, and modeling turn arounds, there is one constant that lays all my fears to rest.  Tim Gunn.  If these new tweaks in the show are tacky or visionless, there's no doubt Tim will be telling the producers to "make it work!"

There's a shake-up happening on Project Runway. Finally. Season 11 is about to wrap up filming and there's a whole host of changes in the work for the veteran fashion show. 

One change for the upcoming season is that Michael Kors will not be a full-time judge! He's not leaving the show, but filling his chair part-time is designer Zac Posen. Michael says his schedule won't allow him to focus on the show full-time since he is busy with his fashion line. He will be judging the finale as a "guest judge." 

"This was an amazing opportunity," Zac told the NY Daily News. "I hope I'm here to give a new perspective to the designers." Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia will both be returning as full-time judges. 

Zac says he's loved working with the show but wished he could have spent more time in workroom observing Tim Gunn. "I wanted to be behind the scenes with Tim. … I was seeing the clothes on the runway, but Tim had all the background interaction."



Last night on Project Runway, I don't know what the heck happened. There were bake sales and sign waving, begging on street corners, and tye-dying t-shirts, and hawking things, and ring-around the teams. And lots of bickering. That happened too. Ugh… please, too much going on – just sew already! 

It was all around cuckoo. Everyone was divided into three teams of three. Can we please get this Elena on some anti-anxiety drugs. Or at least some Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio or something. 

Team One was Team Maximum Manic Pixie Drama, aka Christopher, Sonjia, and Gunnar. Team Two was Team Maximum Former Soviet Bloc Face-Off, aka Elena, Alicia, and my poor besieged Dmitry. Team Three was Team Delusions of Grandeur, aka Ven. And Melissa Ven. And Fabio Ven. 


project runway wrap party 050912

Project Runway celebrated the wrap of its 10th season last night in NYC. 

Nina Garcia, Tim Gunn, and a slew of contestants and celebrities were on hand to party it up.  Strangely, Heidi Klum was missing from the festivities. 



On last night's Project Runway the designers took a field trip to Lord & Taylor where they were confronted by the ghosts of season's past. Before them sat 9 mannequins from previous seasons' designers and a daunting task: make a cocktail dress inspired by a previous designer's work.

Sadly, the mannequins did not bear masks with the previous designers' faces. I have to say I was sort of giggling thinking of the variations in past winners. I noticed The Sleeveless One Who Shall Not Be Named did not have a mannequin. Is it because Lord & Taylor costumers don't wear schmattas or mumus?

The winning look will be sold at the NYC Flagship Lord & Taylor and online. The winning dress will also be featured in their 5th Avenue window. Here's all the Project Runway for Lord & Taylor looks.   

It's important to keep in mind the Lord & Taylor costumer who is sophisticated (matronly), loves fashion (wealthy), and timeless (my mom's age). The retail price must be between $200-$300. And – NO Moods! The Lord & Taylor manufactures will provide notions and materials. 


Last night on Project Runway it was the dreaded “real women” challenge. I so hate this challenge. First of all, I just want to see amazing clothes and I want to minimize anything that involves bitching designers, throwing tantrums, and refusing to try at making decent clothes for “regular people.”

The special twist was that the “real people” were nominated by a friend ala What Not To Wear and the PR bitchies were the poor slobs sent in to do the make-over. Really, really, really never was there a day that I wished for Clinton and Stacey more!

There’s not much to say about this challenge except that the usual bitch queens were even more bitch queens and Ven’s arrogance was the most plus-sized thing in that workroom. He was horrid every step of the way and I felt terrible for his client – both for her so-called make-over AND because he was so dismissive of her. Not only that, but he was blaming his attitude and design flaws on her for being “fat” and “unhappy.”

He was terrible from start to finish and thankfully his fellow designers were all disgusted by his attitude. I just want to remind you that: “Working with the plus-sized is very, very challenging.” Isn’t Ven plus-sized? His horrible client should just go shop at Kardashian Kollection! <<eye roll>>

The most surprising thing was that Gunnar was extremely pleasant and concerned about his client. It made me kinda like him. Sure, sure – it was the reality TV gods tripping with us and trying to make us like a snippy, snide queen whose evil spider monkey hiss still haunts me in my sleep. Anyway, good for your mantsie pantsie for being real person and letting your lady shine. Too bad the outfit was a hot hideous mess!
