Why Tim Gunn lost his cool on this season of 'Project Runway'

Fourteen seasons into a reality TV competition, most shows can be forgiven for defaulting to an aint broke, dont fix it mentality, but the new season of Lifetimes design series will feature something unprecedented: a seriously pissed-off Tim Gunn. Ahead of the new season, which begins on...  Read More... http://feeds.ew.com/~r/entertainmentweekly/tv/coverage/~3/xA9Nx9D925k/project-runway-season-14-tim-gunn

The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of August 3, 2015

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.   UnREAL (Season Finale) Monday at 10:00pm on Lifetime Why: Because this show's become a cult hit! I was going to say an "under-the-radar cult hit" but that would be kind of redundant, right? Anyway, it was created by former Bachelor staffers and it's prompted a response from Bachelor / ette host Chris Harrison (he's not a fan), which should be enough to make it a guilty pleasure for both fans and haters of dating shows. Prepare to talk about: How every character on this show is nucking futs! How it's probably closer to real life than we want to admit; why it's taken Shiri Appleby so long to find a show since Roswell went off the air in 2002.   America's Next Top Model (Season Premiere) Wednesday at 9:00pm on The CW Why: Look, it's not what once was. Basically, after they did the short girl season, it never recovered from a being a dumb concept show cycle after cycle. THAT BEING SAID, it's still Top Model and it still has a place in the pop culture pantheon, especially during the dog days of summer. I'll admit I don't like the girls vs. guys concept, but whatever, I'll still watch. And so will Alex . [Tyra voice] And so. Will. You. Prepare to talk about: TYRA'S SHORT HAIR (finally walking the Mia-Farrow-in-Rosemary's-Baby walk... except not even, what a hypocrite); which of the contestants is the most forgettable; how happy you are Bryanboy is gone.   Project Runway (Season Premiere) Thursday at 9:00pm on Lifetime Why: The high class yang to Top Model 's yin, it's only fitting that Project Runway also premieres this week. Also (fairly severely) diminished from its heyday (sigh, will we ever have a year like 2006 again?), it's still our best/only way to get our bitchy fashion fix. Let's hope they've dropped the Red Robin challenge (lol) this year. That was just sad. Prepare to talk about: Wheee! How much further downmarket can they go?! How you'd love to have Tim Gunn giving you advice every day; whether the show will ever produce another designer on the same level as Christian Siriano; how Zac Posen is NO Michael Kors.   Leah E.

Project Runway Winner and Fianc End Engagement Report

Guess they couldn't make it work? Project Runway winner Christian Siriano and his fianc, musician Brad Walsh, have split up after more than seven years together, sources confirmed to Us Weekly. One day the engagement was in, the next day it was out. (Sorry, stopping now.) The sources didn't share details on the sad split, and neither Christian, 29, nor Brad has said anything about it yet. http://feeds.wetpaint.com/~r/wetpaint/latest/excerpt/~3/Q1BOG-DRfXc/2015-01-31-christian-siriano-brad-walsh-split

'Project Runway: Threads' is a pint-sized delight

Any show where the contestants are young enough that they must be accompanied by their parents is going to be adorable, and the series premiere of "  Project Runway: Threads " does not disappoint in this respect. Instead of the season-long drawn out competition format of its parent show, it instead consists of stand alone competitions more in line with many individually packaged Food Network programs.    Once the crushing feeling that these talented kids will be more successful before they are out of their teens than you ever will be passes, "Threads" is a bright and fun adaptiation of its parent show. For a prize of $25,000 a group of young designers but design one garment in the style chosen by the judges. Of course, a twist is thrown in halfway through the challenge but not one that would derail their initial efforts completely.  Read More... http://www.zap2it.com/blogs/project_runway_threads_series_premiere-2014-10

'Project Runway' Season 12 finale: Is the winner Sean, Kini, or Amanda?

In the glory days of "  Project Runway ", the designers would have shown up to the days before Fashion Week after weeks away from the show and been set to let their models go down the runway. A few tweaks or finishing touches and off they go, no overhauls or new garments necessary. Of course, these are not the glory days so all four designers are nowhere near prepared once back in the workroom and are still preparing for the biggest runway show of their lives hours before they are due at Lincoln Center.    Even with the scrambling and last minutes additions to the collections, the finalists all put forward what are at least respectable and complete collection. Original is not quite the word to use based on the comparisons that can so easily be made between this output and other working designers, but each one at least has a cohesive feel.  Read More... http://www.zap2it.com/blogs/project_runway_season_12_finale_and_your_winner_is-2014-10
