Runway Recap: What a Difference a Day Makes

Project Runway Season 11 Episode 4 Samantha

Project Runway Season 11 Episode 3 Layana and Katelyn

Project Runway Season 11 Episode 2 Kilt 1

So… kilts? Really, Project Runway judges? You’re going to twist your knickers and wring your hands and fall about like fainting goats… over kilts? Okay. First things first. Basic assessment of this episode: Not bad. This episode focused a lot more on the actual design process than the show has for many a season, and …

Runway Recap: Team Players

Project Runway Season 4 DVD

To my great surprise, I’m willing to give this Project Runway “Teams” thing a chance. When I first started watching Project Runway a few years back, I evangelized about it to anyone who would listen. “No, really!” I’d say. “I know, it’s a reality competition show… but it’s one of the best things on television! …

Runway Recap: Boys Against the Girls

Project Runway Gunnar

I wasn’t planning for this week’s Runway Recap to be about feminism. Really, I wasn’t. Usually my Runway Recaps are my “give it a rest” happy silly fun time. But the producers of the show sort of forced it on me this week, and I’m going with it. So here’s what I was noticing this …

Fashion Friday: Money

I was flipping through the new issue of Vogue the other day. (Yes, I read Vogue. In fact, I subscribe to Vogue.) I saw a pair of shoes that made me stop dead in my tracks, a pair of shoes that made my heart hurt and my clit throb: a pair of tall black stiletto …
