Plum Sykes, Bob Morris to Bring Style Back to HBO

HBO wants a series to fill Sex and the City's Manolos and they're looking for the next Candace Bushnell to give it to 'em. According to WWD, they've tapped Vogue contributor Plum Sykes and former New York Times Styles columnist Bob Morris for scripts.

Contestants Turn on ‘Project Runway’

Has Project Runway gone stale? Season-four runner-up Jillian Lewis and winner Christian Siriano think so. Lewis tells WWD:

"Personally, watching it, they need to change the format or something to refresh the love people have for the show." … [Lewis] felt the show could last, "maybe another season or two. I love the show, but now it feels it's easier to predict what's going to happen."

Fugs on the ‘Project Runway’ Finale: Talented, Qualified Contestants Are ... Boring

After Christian Siriano was crowned the fiercest designer in the land on Project Runway’s fourth-season finale, we felt happy but slightly empty. Not because we didn’t think he deserved the win, but because we hadn’t gotten our dramatic fill. There was no fighting. No abject horror. Not even a whiff of impropriety. What kind of self-respecting reality show fields a finale full of talented, qualified contestants who neither sabotage each other nor do anything to make Heidi Klum want to vomit on her shoes?

Setting the Odds on the ‘Project Runway’ Winner

Thank God the Project Runway finale is upon us once more! It’s been nearly a year and a half since neck-tattoo enthusiast Jeffrey Sebelia was crowned last season’s winner and, at the very least, we’re jonesing for a new victim to insert into those terrible Saturn ads.

The Best- and Worst-Dressed Real Housewives of New York

The shopping habits, outfit choices, hair and makeup styling, and sick emphasis on their daughters' outward appearances have been consistently appalling on the Real Housewives of Orange County. Alas, on this joyous eve, we will see the New York equivalent when the Real Housewives of New York premieres.

‘Project Runway’ Contestants Party, Fight, Karaoke

The March issue of Elle has a tiny tear-out Project Runway insert, in which the best bit of information is what we didn't see on camera. In sum: • Jack is now dating Top Chef contestant Dan Lewitski, whom he met on MySpace. • Sweet P, Kit, and Jillian had house parties in their room with — gasp! — beer and cigarettes.

Derek Lam Won't Judge ‘Project Runway’

Derek Lam
Derek Lam (the proud new designer for Tod's) showed at the Tunnel in Chelsea on Tuesday and kept with the season: belted silhouettes, high-waisted pants, and to-die-for double-breasted coats. Jocelyn Guest caught up with him for a quick chat on Project Runway and the rise of Asian designers at Fashion Week.

Tall Tales

Ponytails
Designers are marching into fall with head and hair held high. Ponytails have been everywhere this season, but the real eye-catchers are the unapologetically bold ones. Grey Ant moved slightly crimped, frizzy ponytails to the side, provoking eighties flashbacks. At Sass & Bide, hair was put beneath berets and wrapped sky-high up in black ribbons. And Lydia Hearst’s infamously dyed red hair was softly curled and pinned atop her head at ThreeAsFour. Though these styles will keep the hair out of your face, they’re only meant for girls who want all the attention.

  • 3.Dramatic necklines at Oscar de la Renta.

Meet the Costume Designer From ‘Zoolander’

And now it's time for some light relief. Here's David Robinson: He was the costume designer on Zoolander — which, as he so eloquently puts it, "is to fashion as the world of spying and espionage is to Austin Powers" — not to mention Pollack and Donnie Brasco. He describes his style as "homeless Viking dandy," and he was interviewed by Amy Larocca for the Video Look Book.

Jill Stuart's Venue Colder Than Outdoors

J.C. Chasez
In retrospect, maybe it wasn't the best idea for the Jill Stuart team to hold a fashion show in the frigid marble entryway of the New York Public Library on the coldest day of the year. While those of us who actually showed up shivered through a succession of cute coats, swingy tunics, and the THIRD set of underpants worn as outer pants in the last three days (So is this a trend? Because … don't. Just don't), it seemed like most of the folks with seating assignments just decided to ditch, probably in favor of standing in front of their wall heaters and saying things like, "Wow, it's cold out there." At least 50 percent of the seating in our section was filled in by the hopefuls from standing room, and a good portion of the front-row seats were eventually filled by … Jill Stuart staffers. Now, we're no experts when it comes to the economics of fashion, but that doesn't seem like a very good omen.

Jay McCarroll and Tim Gunn Still Have Beef

Jay
Jay McCarroll is lying low this Fashion Week. His first collection, which debuted in the fall, will be released next month by Urban Outfitters. What's next? Certainly not a reunion with Tim Gunn. We talked to McCarroll at the Gen Art fashion showcase, where he took the opportunity to get his feelings about the Project Runway host off his chest. Your spring 2007 show was great. Yeah. I thought it was good. No one fucking said anything.
