Project Runway at Battery Park

Posted on June 24, 2011

Just to whet the appetite for the coming season, check out these pictures of the Project Runway cast shooting on location in Battery Park. You’re not going to really see much in the way of spoilers, but you will see: the outline of Heidi’s bra, the very upper reaches of Mount Kardashian, Michael Kors’ persimmon puss, and Tim, looking both spiffy and very, very concerned. Perhaps because he said Kim’s whole family has “an absence of taste.” Bitchfight! Those Kardashians are pretty ruthless, but our money’s on Tim.

        I kinda like hers. I’m not feeling Kim’s. It’s so SEVERE. That ponytail looks paaaainful.

      Everything is perfect save for the Kardashian. I’d rather have one of the figure skater judges back.

      Heidi looks very German.

      Heidi needs to tone it down with the hot pink ’80s lipstick. I hate everything about the way she looks in these pictures (opaque tights? in June? And with that dress, ever?), but that lipstick is the. Worst.

        OK, you’re right. I love the outfit and the hair, but you got me on the lipstick.

        ok – but how late in the season will this be shown?  Is this more of a pre-fall look?

      Mr. Gunn’s outfit says “4th of July festivities!” to me, I ponder the
      significance of wearing it to submit his little chicks’ work to judging by La
      Kardashian. 

    • Meredith McCann

      I was pretty appalled when I heard Kim Kardashian was going to be a judge this season, but I felt that way when I heard about Jessica Simpson and she turned out to be a pleasant surprise. So maybe Kim won’t be so bad. But she probably will be.

      • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

        You know, though, the Kardashian girls do run a fashion retail business.  And even before the show that made them “famous”, it did fairly well.  So at least one of them knows something about fashion and business. 

        • Anonymous

          Not quite accurate.  The DASH stores originally opened in the fall of 2006 at the same time the series, “Keeping up with the Kardashians”, started filming.  The series premiered in June of 2007.  The Kardashians were very well known before this due to sex tapes and other scandals.  The employees of the DASH boutiques are hired by casting calls and are paid as employees of the show and the stores are featured on the stores heavily. I would be very surprised if the stores made significant profits based on the sales, not the money generated by the show and the fans of the show shopping there.  The sisters fame supports the stores, not the other way around.

          • http://profiles.google.com/shannonlstewart Shannon Stewart

            Really?  I though Dash opened longer before the show than that.  In that case, nevermind…

      Is that woman in the red dress on stilts?

      The whole thing looks interesting, but after seeing everyone standing behind barricades, I’m glad I had a scheduling conflict & didn’t go. And btw, I agree with Tim: The entire freak show that is the Kardashian family is defined by a lack of taste. 

      And Tim btw, should be studied by science for the way he defies humidity.

          Just to be bitchy, I’m going to suggest she whiten her teeth.  She’s got one of the most beautiful smiles in the business and it’s not going in the right direction. Go back and take a look for yourself. 

          Actually, I don’t feel so bitchy saying this, because Heidi put herself on that ridiculous promo shot in her full, naked,  (photoshopped) glory, so she is inviting the scrutiny.  

          • Anonymous

            for sure photoshopped – especially the abs.

    • Michelle Prahl

      Kim dear, as a fellow “woman of a certain size”, always cross at the ankle when wearing a short skirt. It makes cottage cheese thighs less likely, or at least less noticeable. Of course, wearing a dress that actually covers your cottage cheese thighs is the best option, but since you seemed to have skipped that day of life school, we’ll work with what we have. I’m not telling you to loose weight, as I think your curves are spectacular, but I am saying you need to dress the body you have, not the body you think you have. 

      As for what’s upstairs? Well honey, at least you have a pretty face. 

      • http://twitter.com/asciident Melissa Della

        Exactly. It’s not that I think Kim looks bad, exactly, it’s just that I would rather not see her upper inner thigh ever again. And certainly not in this context.

      • Anonymous

        Yes, it’s less about how she is crossing her legs and more about the inappropriatness of the length and fit of the dress.

      • MilaXX

        I have a feeling Kim simply forgot to give the dress the sit down test. There are some dresses that look fine when standing but when you sit? Hello thighs! I test anything that is not an A line cut.

        • Anonymous

          Which begs the question:  If a woman who can’t “remember” to check and make sure her dress is going ot be appropriate for her TV appearance how is it she a judge for a fashion show?  All this nonsense about her supposed “style” and “fashion sense” is just PR hype.

          • http://joansbooks.blogspot.com/ lilithcat

             “Which begs the question . . .”

            No, it doesn’t.

          • MilaXX

            I don’t think she has great taste. I think she has stylist who help fit her body type and I love what her mu artist does 99% of the time, but I don’t think Kim is all that bright. I do believe mama K knows how to work a dollar and has taught her daughters well. Either way it will be interesting to see Kim’s turn as judge. Either she’ll be shockingly good or crackstatically bad.

        • http://twitter.com/merd0001 Marie Durst

          Sweetie, Kim probably chose that dress BECAUSE of how it looked when she sat down!  Has ANYONE in her family EVER shown even the SLIGHTEST interest in propriety?

      Dare I be the one to say it?  Tim Gunn has overextended himself and thinned out “his brand” way too much. Game shows, cheesy commercials, etc. have made him too ubiquitous and consequently, irrelevant. It saddens me to admit it, but I no longer love Tim Gunn.

      But I doubt this will be enough to convince people that no, you should not in fact wear a molded cup bra under everything!  I find them fairly abominable to begin with, but it seems that while people are concerned about panty-lines they’re not worried about bra-lines. The right bra for the right dress Heidi, you’re not modeling for Victoria’s Secret anymore, YOU CAN BUY A REAL BRA AGAIN!

      Oh, if I were Kim K. I would hurt somebody over that picture.  She’s a lovely girl with a great body, but there is no more unflattering way to photograph thighs.

      I’m not sure why everyone is saying, “OMG, this must be a sellout, a bad season, whatever”–looks like they’re doing one of those public-judging episodes, like the store window or… whatever it was last year.  I mean, I can’t look at this random selection of pictures and say, “It’s going to be a great season!”, either.  I’m just not picking up any vibe. They’ve had doofy guest judges before, after all.  (Sure wish they’d have Joe Zee.)
