Project Runway 10th Anniversary Party

Posted on July 18, 2012

Darlings, are you all ready for tomorrow night? And if you ask, “Why? What’s happening tomorrow night?” we will weep over your ignorance and question your Bitter Kitten-ness. It is, after all, the premiere of Project Runway’s tenth season, and to celebrate this milestone, the old gang got back together again for a blowout in NYC.

“To celebrate Project Runway’s milestone 10th anniversary, Lifetime, in partnership with Friends of the High Line, will transform a portion of the High Line in New York City into a virtual runway with a dynamic, 20-foot long, interactive installation on the elevated park featuring the stars of the Emmy® Award-nominated hit show host Heidi Klum, mentor Tim Gunn and judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia.”

We had what they call a “prior commitment,” and wound up not going, which makes us sad. But to be perfectly honest, after last week’s frantic 2-day sprint through Manhattan, and with another frantic trip scheduled for next week, we probably made the right choice.



Heidi Klum in Francesco Scognamiglio

We’re surprised by how low-key this outfit is. You would think this would be one of those times Fraulein Klum would bust out the tight, short, ‘n shiny. Then again, the number of straight men in the room was probably in the single digits and maybe she didn’t want to put up with the hassle for such a small audience. The dress is pretty and we love the shape of it on her. The shoes are sad and the hair is really sad. Seriously, girl. Did you stop off on your way home from the Y?

Tim Gunn

Sir Tim, we heartily approve of your Big Plaid Suit. Personally, we would have recommended a higher contrast tie than that, but otherwise, you look quite smart.

As for the rest of the attendees, we wouldn’t feel right ripping their ensembles. If there’s one thing we’ve learned about reality competition stars, it’s that they’re all narcissistic, attention-seeking misfits  regular people, for the most part, and don’t have access to stylists or make the kind of money that allows them to dress like a celebrity. Still, you go on with your fey self, Austin Scarlett. Also, we have no idea what’s going on with Anthony Ryan. And Kenley? We could have told you ahead of time that kneesocks on a step-and-repeat was never going to work. Camera angles, darling. Please make a note of it for next time.
