After twelve seasons of Project Runway and three All-Stars edition, Tim Gunn is finally getting his own show. Although technically not a spin-off, the premise of his new reality show sounds like a mashup of Project Runway and The Voice. I will say though, Under The Gunn is a cute show title.
Gunn won’t be the only Project Runway alum on the series. It’ll also feature three fan-favorites who’ve competed on the original fashion competition. They will each mentor a group of five up-and-coming designers. After which, the contestants will be critiqued by three notable fashion experts. Find out who the mentors and judges are below.
Friend Movement’s new ad campaign is hoping to take something negative and turn it into something positive. Their goal is to make the New F Word stand for “Friend” and no longer for hurtful words like “Freak“, “Fatty“, or “Faggot.”
“Friend Movement inspires people to prevent bullying by enabling them to be a better friend; providing entertaining and educational resources, cultivating global partnerships, and leveraging the latest social media technology.”
The anti-bullying campaign is the brainchild of male model Ronnie Kroell and film producer Elliot Dal Pra London. The duo enlisted a wide array of celebrities to flip the bird for the movement. Tim Gunn, Lisa Vanderpump, Adam Lambert, Darren Criss are just a few of the names participating in the campaign. Check out the photos below.
The backstabbing and drama will reach new levels when Project Runway returns for its eleventh season. For the first time in the show’s history, the contestants will be competiting as teams instead of individuals for every challenge. Personally, I think this twist sucks. If you watched Bravo’s lame attempt to duplicate the designing show, you know that The Fashion Show sucked big time. That’s even with the wonderfully snippy Iman as host and head judge.
With that being said, I’m still going to watch it to see Zac Posen’s debut as Michael Kors’ replacement. Based on the newly-released promo, I’m not too optimistic about his addition. I adore Posen but there’s only one short snippet of him in the promo. If his critiques were as hilariously cutting as Kors, I’m sure the network would’ve included a short montage of his best one-liners. Check out the new promo below.
Tim Gunn is known as a style guru. He’s most famously associated with Project Runway but last week, Gunn began work on his new gig with ABC. The daytime talk show is titled The Revolution which is all about transforming you, the viewer. The panel of experts also features Ty Pennington, Dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry, Harley Pasternak and Dr. Jennifer Ashton. Much like their other daytime chat-fest, The Chew, the five experts come together and discuss topics and give advice to help their viewers through their life and help them transform themselves through make-overs, health tips etc.
On today’s show, Gunn created quite the buzz when the panel began talking about their sex lives. The topic was brought on by dr. Tiffanie Davis Henry who is a relationship therapist. During the segment, Tim revealed that he hasn’t had sex in 29 years. Okay, you can now all pick your jaws up off of the floor. For the last almost three decades, Tim admits to the panel and the audience that he has been celibate from sex.
For 17 years, OUT Magazine has spotlighted individuals in the LGBT community they find inspiring. With 2011 coming to an end, it’s time for the magazine to reveal those who made the cut for their annual Out100. Once again, they did an excellent job of picking truly inspiring people that everyone could relate to. The list isn’t solely dedicated to those in the entertainment industry. The selections range from a U.S Representative gay intern to one who was appointed to the federal bench- the first openly gay man to do so. Having representatives from all sectors shows to prove that we can do anything if we just put our minds to it.
OUT Magazine hasn’t revealed their entire list yet and only given a preview. From the 30-something picks they’ve shared so far, I’ve selected my ten favorites. My picks are a little entertainment heavy which shouldn’t be surprising, considering I run and operate a gay entertainment-centric site. Check out my choices below with their accompanying Out.com write-up. The magazine also snapped pictures of the honorees using iconic portraits of the 20th century serving as inspiration. The photos are something worth checking out. Simply click on their names below to see their photos.
It’s time to make it work again. Lifetime just announced the start date for Project Runway’s ninth season. All the fashion drama and designer meltdowns will begin on Thursday, July 28 and it promises to be bigger than ever. They aren’t kidding. Not only is Heidi Klum getting naked in the promos (see full pic below), but the season will begin with 20 designers- the most ever on the show- and feature a bevy of celebrity judges.
On the season premiere, the 20 chosen contestants will have to stand before the judges and tell them why they should make the cut. In other words, you’ll see a bunch of fashionistas begging, pleading and hopefully crying to the panel for a spot in the workroom. Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia will eliminate four designers on the spot, narrowing down the field to 16. The remaining designers will then be guided by the judges to “one of the toughest first challenges in the series’ history” as said by Lifetime. Ooooh, I love a good innovative first challenge. Til this day, Austin Scarlet’s corn husk dress still wows me.
Now THAT was the Gossip Girl I remember. Last night’s episode was amazeballs! Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen) returned for this special episode where she comes back to the upper east side for a special meeting with Project Runway’s Tim Gunn. As much as I dislike Momsen, it was great to have her character back in the mix. Jenny had been banished from the upper east side by Blair, who in this episode compromised and gave Jenny a day pass to do what she had to, then leave.
Little did Jenny & Blair know that Chuck was behind it all pulling strings, so he could put the two arch enemies against each other and not have to do all the Waldorf sabotage himself. Blair even gets her minions involved, bringing Penelope back to help keep an eye on Jenny.
I love Project Runway. I love video games. But combining the two seems like a bad idea.
Most likely to coincide with the upcoming season 7 of Project Runway, Atari is currently developing “Project Runway” for the Nintendo Wii:
