Malan had a show, Darlings!

The ever-fabulous Malan Breton from Taiwan showed his Fall 2007 collection this week, darlings. We adore the blue velvet dressing gown. Give that bitch a turban and a cigarette holder, pronto.

Feed on the fabulosity:

Okay, we have a good excuse.

Kittens, we're sorry we didn't provide you with our normal astronomically high level of entertainment yesterday, but when Bryant Park calls, one simply must answer.

Once again, we got to spend the day with the Bennett-Shelton clan as future supermodel of the world Pierson Bennett Shelton made his runway debut for the Child Magazine show.

Here, Tom pretends that he is the prissy uptight assistant of a world famous fashion designer. "Please stand 10 feet away from Ms. Bennett while she is on the phone, thank you."

The show was a blast. The kids outfits ranged from the glamorous to the outrageous to the adorable. As always, you can check out New York Mag for the entire runway show and backstage photos.



We're DYING here! And yes, Laura made the outfit.

For most of us, home movies consist of the requisite sleepy-eyed Christmas morning stuff, along with the occasional recital or pageant or parade march. If your parents are Peter Shelton and Laura Bennett, your home movies consist of you walking down a Bryant Park runway past a bored Kimora Lee while Tim Gunn watches and applauds.

Tiny little boy, you are freaking FABULOUS!

Of course it's no surprise that Pierson owned that runway (no matter what Kimora thinks). He had two fabulous fairy godfathers last month cheering him on and offering tips as he practiced his catwalk in his living room:

Future star? Oh yes.

Backstage, Lorenzo does his impression of a 13 year old girl. "Ohmigod. Catherine Malandrino. Ohmigod. We have to get a picture. Ohmigod she's fabulous. Here, take a picture. NOW. Ohmigod. Ohmigod. She's so fabulous. I think I'm going to cry."

He is SUCH a little starfucker.

Truth be told, she looks GORGEOUS in person and she was surprisingly friendly.

After the show, we hung out back at their place and ordered Chinese and just chatted.

We finally got to hang out a little more with Nicole, who we promised would get a picture on the blog. She is fabulous and funny and a blast to be around. Here, she demonstrates how to use a newborn baby as a puppet, while big brother Truman mugs for the camera - something all those kids do the minute a lens is trained on them.

We forced a gun to his head but we finally got Bad Daddy to pose for us.

There. Now does that make up for no posting yesterday? As always, poodles, we do it all for YOU.

Auf Wiedersehen, John! It means "goodbye," Other Heidi.

It has to be embarrassing to make it all the way to New York for the finals, and then to get auf'd before you got a chance to strut your stuff.

This wasn't a bad dress, really. It just didn't tell you anything about the designer, which is really what the judges were looking for.

That styling's just a tad whorish, no?

She looks like the kind of gal that spends a lot of time in airport lounges.

As for Other Heidi, if Precious Moments made clothing, it would look something like this.

When a designer thinks that "pretty" is a design statement, then they need to just go. There's just nothing going on with this outfit.

"Auf Wiedersehen."

"I don't even know what that means."

"And that's why you're going home."

Our girl, fashionable as always.

Check out Bad Mommy rocking the pearls as she talks to leading stylemakers about the trends emerging from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

You're fabulous, girl!

The Duchess had one of her little shows this week.

So. Here are six looks from Duchess Kors' Fall 2007 show this week. Two of them we loved, two of them we hated, two of them we only sorta liked.


S2/E1: Congratulations, Santino!

Quickie Recap: Project Runway's panel of judges (including Kara Saun, Jay and Austin) narrows the field down to sixteen semi-finalists from hundreds of applicants. Each semi-finalist is given a week to complete a garment made from muslin before arriving in New York where two designers will be eliminated.

You can read Tim's take on this episode here and listen to Tim's podcast here. As always, we ask our commenters to refrain from spoiling future episodes of Season 2.

This is going to be fun. Unlike Season 1, we haven't really seen the S2 episodes more than a couple times. We forgot how interesting Santino can be.

To be honest, the dress is kind of ugly but strangely enough, it was the only choice that made sense. In this case, it's about how much the designer was able to do with such limited resources and Santino definitely managed to do a lot and do it well.

We hate the fit in the bust and the "saddlebags" hanging off the skirt, neither of which take into consideration the actual shape of an actual woman's body.

In a way though, that's not the point. It's a masterpiece of construction and he took the opportunity to really showcase his aesthetic and boil it down to one muslin dress.

So no, it's not particularly our taste, but it effectively communicates a very strong aesthetic in as succinct a manner as possible and that's really what the judges were looking for. Kudos, gigantic flamboyant man!

Feel the LOVE.

Let's all take a deep breath and find our calm place, mkay?

The fabulous EMC2 is having a LOVE4SALE sample sale and spring preview this coming Valentine's and we got an advance look at the announcement card,

which is suitably gorgeous.

In other EMC2 news and because we can't seem to go a day without mentioning Tim Gunn, we're told that supplies are running out on the Tim Gunn bobbleheads and T-shirts (both signed) and if you ever planned on getting them, now's your last chance.

Send one to Jay!

From the highest highs to the lowest lows.

Darlings, our poor fingers are still sore from typing out that magnum opus yesterday. All we can do is offer you the gayest thing you're going to see today, possibly ever:

Della Reese, Carol Channing, Ethel Merman, and Ann Miller in enough lamé to choke a drag queen, howling "I'm the Greatest Star" for Captain Steubing and the rest of the tools on the Love Boat. Further commentary from us would be entirely superfluous. Turn your speakers down and enjoy:

From the highest highs to the lowest lows.

Darlings, our poor fingers are

Oh no she DIDN'T.

Jay McCarroll lets loose with both barrels at Tim Gunn:

"He’s having his heyday, but I also don’t think he’s an authority on any designer’s life. He went to school for sculpture or something. I don’t think that he’s ever, to my knowledge, started a fashion line and therefore should not be the adviser or the fuckin’ creative director … how dare you pretend to know what I should be doing with my company?"

EDITED TO ADD: You bitches got us our first mention in New York Magazine!

"Project Rungay's commenters have their designer undies in a bunch over Jay McCarroll's tongue lashing of Tim Gunn."

Jay darling, thank you for shooting your mouth off and commenters, thank you for getting your undies in a bunch. Mwah! We love you all!
