Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Cover April Issue of Vogue


Welp, folks, it looks like Kanye finally wore Anna Wintour down and got his baby mama a coveted Vogue cover. So the rumors were true. There was buzz a few months back that Kim would cover the fashion bible, but then everyone assumed it would be a foreign Vogue - given Anna's alleged aversion to all things Kardashian. I CONTINUE READING

Posted on by daneen in Fashion Week, Project Runway, Video | 2 Comments

Project Runway and America’s Next Top Model are two of my absolute favorite reality shows. So imagine my delight to learn that there was a strong ANTM showing at the Project Runway finale at New York Fashion Week!

Jaslene Gonzalez, winner of Cycle 8, walked in the Jillian Lewis show. While Danielle Evans, winner of Cycle 6, and Bianca Golden modeled dresses from Chris March’s collection.

I met Bianca later that afternoon, but had no idea why she was there. Now I know.

And bravo to Bravo for employing so many minority models for the Project Runway finale.

I Told You Amy Would Go Back To Black

amy b2b I Told You Amy Would Go Back To Black
I told y’all that Amy Winehouse wouldn’t be blonde for very long. This morning, she debuted her darker do, just prior to entering a rehab facility.

Perhaps the crackhead chanteuse wanted to go a bit more incognito (good luck, with a 2-foot beehive) in the wake of her drug video. Or maybe it was last night’s episode of Project Runway that promped her to go back to black.

Team Fierce

I don’t post about Project Runway too often. Don’t get me wrong; I’ve got plenty of love for PR. I just fear that my beauty posts would be outnumbered. That’s how much I love the show.

rate runway 03 408 Team FierceLast night, the designers were placed in teams and told to create an avant-garde look based on their model’s hairstyle. Then – as if this challenge wasn’t already challenging enough – Tim ‘make it work’ Gunn appears half way though the episode, to announce that each duo must also create a ready-to-wear look that compliments the first design.

Well, genius that he is, Christian led “Team Fierce” to victory – by transforming 40 yards of organza into 8 feet of fabulosity! Nina was hella impressed; as the dress came down the catwalk, she couldn’t conceal her delight. This week, the star of the show was – hands down – Christian and Chris’ garment. But, not to be outdone, the Tresemme and L’Oreal folks turned it out!

Whose hair and makeup reigned on the runway? I have an opinion. Do you?prfierce Team Fierce

Blogging Is Hard Work

 Blogging Is Hard Work
Philadelphia Magazine recently had a chance to catch up with Jay McCarroll, Season 1 winner of Project Runway and Philly’s prodigal son (he’s back in town after a brief stint in NYC). Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

PM: Now, I know you’re watching Season 4 of Project Runway, because you’re blogging about it on Elle.com.

Jay: Yeah, it’s super fun. It’s hard blogging, which I had no idea about. I thought, Oh, it’ll take, like, 45 minutes of my day. But that turned into an entire day with editing and rewriting.

lush1 Blogging Is Hard WorkPM: Where are your favorite places in Philly to shop?

Jay: I go to all the thrift stores. I like to peek around at the little boutiques in Northern Liberties and 3rd Street. I love Lush cosmetics on Walnut. That’s probably my favorite store.
