Project Runway All-Star Challenge!

For the first time in Project Runway history, eight former fan favorites and Project Runway superstars are returning to the catwalk to compete against one another in the two-hour special, Project Runway: All-Star Challenge. The spirited competition premieres Thursday, August 20, at 8PM ET/PT and will be followed by the highly anticipated premiere of the sixth season of Project Runway at 10PM ET/PT and the debut of the all-new companion series, Models of the Runway, at 11PM ET/PT.

At stake for the designers are not only the ultimate bragging rights, but also a $100,000 cash prize. Will the designers be up to the challenge of returning to the workroom, working under the “Gunn” (as in Tim Gunn) to create a successful fashion line? Are they ready to, once again, face the critiques of Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia, as they showcase their creations?

The designers competing in Project Runway: All-Star Challenge are:

Daniel Vosovic, Season 2
Santino Rice, Season 2
Jeffrey Sebelia, Season 3
Uli Herzner, Season 3
Mychael Knight, Season 3
Chris March, Season 4
Sweet P, Season 4
Korto Momolu, Season 5

I’m rooting for Mychael (my favorite PR alumnus) to redeem himself and take it all. Who will you be cheering for?

Dolce & Gabbana The Make Up: Fall Romantic Collection and Holiday Golden Beams Collection

Introducing the Romantic Collection for Fall 2009 and the Golden Beams Collection for Holiday 2009: two new collections showcasing new colors, new attitude and new direction. Inspired by Dolce & Gabbana’s gravitation toward surrealism, each palette embraces a bold insouciance and a sexy spontaneity that challenges the archetypal face of beauty with the revolutionary Dolce & Gabbana aesthetic.

The Romantic Collection, Fall 2009
Legendary make-up artist Pat McGrath collaborates closely with Dolce & Gabbana to create the beauty look with select Make Up classics paired with brilliant new shades. Explicit and ethereal pinks are imbued with light; deep neutrals are refined and distinctive. The look lends an air of romance and a sense of intimacy with lucid washes of pure colour and sensuality. A truly feminine aura that’s both suggestive and assertive; the look is exuberant with weightless layering of tone against tone pinks, that coalesce in a seamless elegance that is at once fresh and cool. Moist, voluptuous lips beckon and seduce – soft-sculpted and defined with Soft, a new shade of the classic lipstick and the lipliner. The same hue adds sophistication to nails, through the new Soft shade of the nail lacquer. Eyes are delicate, yet smoldering with the eyeshadow duo in Rose, enhanced with the mascara in Black. Cheeks appear lightly flushed with the blush in new Delight.

The Romantic Collection is intimate yet ephemeral with a glaze of pinks dissolving into a rush of strong femininity “The Rose palette brings the collection to a new level; Dolce & Gabbana wanted to take risks with color, texture, mood – and at the same time capture the essence of each element,” says Pat McGrath. “While the focus is on the eyes – very sexy, very daring – the soft voluptuous lips add an intensity that’s erotic. The rose look is very romantic, almost ethereal – yet very sophisticated.”

Classic Cream Lipstick in Soft 65 ($30)
Shine Lipstick in Naked 60 ($30)
Shine Lipstick in Drama 90 ($30)

The Golden Beams Collection, Holiday 2009
The Golden Beams Collection for Holiday 2009 captures the precious singularity of golden tones with a rare depth and an unexpected eroticism, celebrating three ultra femme variations on golden translucence, anchored by the drama and depth of surreal fantasy. Dolce & Gabbana use captivating contrasts to take beauty to a new level of decadence.

A seductive shimmer informs a play of matte neutrals and golds to create a complete face of beauty for the Holiday season that is polished and luxurious. The look showcases precious yellow, white and rose gold shades to create provocative, atonal precision.

The eyes are intense, illuminated with a warmth that appears to glow from within. A play of fine metallics lends an ephemeral shimmer and shine to a rich warm patina of matte brown with the new eyeshadow quad in Gold. Featuring the 3 golds gleam, the look is underscored by the mascara in Black while the eyeliner in Gold adds depth and definition. Cheeks are suffused with soft light with a new shade of the blush in Caramel. Bold red lips in Sparkling, a new shade of the shine lipstick, mirror the luminosity of the eyes with a creamy intensity. The nail laquer in Royal add a subtle sexy finish. “Golden Beams is full of drama, but it’s a discreet drama,” says Pat McGrath. “The play of opposites-the brown and golds, the matte and shine – is so key; the look is quite daring and evocative-yet also very ladylike, polished and elegant.”
