Michael Kors has been a voice of sartorial reason on "Project Runway" for almost a decade, but Zac Posen is poised to step in for the famed fashion designer next season.
"So excited to be the new judge on @ProjectRunway Season 11!!" Posen tweeted Tuesday, adding that he'll be joining "Runway" regulars Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Tim Gunn.
Take heart all you "Project Runway" fans who fear acute withdrawal once the season finale airs - there's always "Project Accessory."
The spin-off to the popular fashion design show debuts Thursday right after the season-ending episode of "Runway" (I'm rooting for Anya to make a come-from-behind victory, by the way). In the spin-off, 12 designers will compete for $100,000 and other prizes by crafting shoes, handbags, jewelry and other accessories. All on nerve-wracking deadlines, of course.
Actress/model Molly Sims is hosting the show, with design magnate Kenneth Cole among the judges. The elaborately-named Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti will serve in the Tim Gunn/mentor role.
Memorable contestants from “Project Runway” will appear on this season’s “Project Runway All-Stars,” but it’s the judges that we’re excited about!
According to The Wrap, upcoming guest judges include model Miranda Kerr, hip-hop star Pharrell Williams and the muppet diva herself, Miss Piggy.
Supermodel Angela Lindvall will host the show, which features designers Isaac Mizrahi and Georgina Chapman as regular judges, with Marie Claire editor Joanna Coles acting as a mentor.
There’s no question that Kirstie Alley has seriously slimmed down thanks to her stint on “Dancing With the Stars” last season, but style guru Tim Gunn says the actress is not the size 4 she's been touted as.
The “Project Runway” star says vanity sizing is to blame for the clothing confusion.
Alley, 60, told Entertainment Tonight that she’s lost 100 lbs and has dropped ten dress sizes. "I feel like I'm back in my element," she enthused in an interview that aired Tuesday.
There’s a “Project Runway” spinoff coming our way, and it’s all about accessories.
The Weinstein Co. and Lifetime reportedly threw a cocktail party for upcoming series “Project Accessory” in Manhattan on Wednesday, reports the New York Post.
The series isn’t expected to premiere until later this year or in early 2012, but when it does, Wednesday's gathering is expected to be part of the show.
Now that same-sex marriage is legal in New York, word is "Project Runway" judge Michael Kors is tying the knot!
Life and Style spotted the famed fashion designer and longtime partner Lance LePere at the city clerk's office in Manhattan on Wednesday, and the New York Post reports that the couple is indeed set to marry.
"Lance and I are very excited to finally be able to have the opportunity to marry in our home state after many years together,” Kors, 51, said in a statement. “We have no plans for a major party, but we will be getting married privately."
The couple met in 1990, when LePere joined Kors’s company as an intern.
"Over the years and the day-to-day process of dreaming together, things just naturally fell into place," LePere has said of their relationship, according to Life and Style.
