Project Runway Recap: Rockette Science
Is it worse to have 36 beautiful women in the same super-boring dress, or to put them all in bedazzled blue band costumes from hell? And would it make a difference if the super-boring dress was designed by the dude who showed an open disdain for working with a “real-sized woman” just a few weeks back? READ MORE
Project Runway Recap: You Weep What You Sew
This week’s Project Runway found the nine remaining designers tackling the “Push Everybody to the Brink of Emotional Collapse” challenge. Sonjia and Elena wound up sobbing as though someone had snuck into Parsons in the middle of the night and used the Lord & Taylor Accessory Wall thoughtlessly and haphazardly. Melissa scrapped her dress and started a new one with, like, 11 minutes left in the workday. And Tim was reduced to chanting ridiculous platitudes like “Channel your inner winner!” (Perhaps it’s best The Revolution didn’t get a second season after all.) READ MORE
Why Didn't Runway Auf Ven? Should Bunheads Keep Its Ghost? A Glee Mystery? And More Qs!

Project Runway Recap: Learning Curves
Ven Budhu might never create a line of clothing that can be sold to women larger than a Size 4 — after all, when you’ve reached Size 6 proportions, you might as well give up on life and simply cut neck and arm holes into a burlap sack, right? — but I’m really looking forward to his book Ven and the Art of Douchebaggery.
Oh, sure, Ven’s not the first designer in Project Runway history to express his horror over having to work with a woman whose measurements …READ MORE

Project Runway Recap: Work to Do
Five episodes in to Season 10 of Project Runway, and I’m feeling a little dubious about the show’s title. I mean, the “Project” half seems to be more about the moneymaking endeavors of the show’s various judges and sponsors, while absurd (or is it cost-saving?) time limitations have left the “Runway” half of the equation as something of an afterthought.
This week’s beneficiary? READ MORE
Project Runway Recap: No Wrinkles, No Time
This week’s installment of Project Runway began with a trip to Michael Kors’ “flagship lifestyle store” — where black blazers (paired with black t-shirts) are always in fashion, and insane crotches are strictly verboten.
I’m not exactly sure what this bit of product placement had to do with …READ MORE
Project Runway Recap: Auto Immunity
If too many cooks can spoil the soup, then it follows that too many “twists and turns” can reduce a Project Runway challenge into something of a muddled mess. This week, the 14 remaining designers were split into seven teams of two, paired with a client who happened to be a former Runway contestant and a Lexus vehicle that would provide a “color inspiration,” and then asked to create a red-carpet look for said client for the 2012 Emmys.

Project Runway Recap: Lolli-Gagging
There are moments when Project Runway feeds your inner hardcore fashion enthusiast, and other times when it scores as many laughs per minute as your average episode of Cougar Town or Veep. This week’s “Unconventional Materials” challenge — in which the designers were tasked with creating stylish looks using $250 worth of materials from Dylan’s Candy Bar — succeeded on both counts.
Heid Klum, Tim Gunn, and Michael Kors …READ MORE
Cable Ratings: Anger Management Rebounds, Project Runway Stumbles, Awkward Rises
Anger Management reversed two weeks of downward trending with a visit from Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards — and with nary a champagne bottle in sight. READ MORE
