Tim Gunn's new show "Under The Gunn" filmed its finale yesterday in Los Angeles and Heidi was looking rather playful! Our recapping friend Eric3000 was in attendance and sends along these shots of BPR faves Mila Hermanovski and Bert Keeter:
The show begins on Lifetime January 16th and features mentors Nick Verreos, Mondo Guerra and Anya Ayoung-Chee. We can't wait!
Project Runway All-Star designer, Irina Shabayeva talks about her experience on the show. A highlight: BPR: If you could go back, what would you do differently?
IS: I wouldn't do anything differently. This particular season had less to do with design and more to do with "drama" I have grown as a designer and as a woman and definitely did not want to fall into the "reality tv" drama. I treated being on the competition as professionally as possible. In the real world designers are professionals.
With only six all star designers remaining, no one is safe this week as we take a copter ride over to Philly to visit the storied land of QVC. Team BPR has saved you a spot along the ropes of the red carpet as we watch another episode of Project Runway All Stars together. Click on the comment tab to join the party!

Shannon watches the cookie crumble... Second City Style recovers from the food coma... And Toyouke lays it all out. Thank you recappers, see you in seven!
Project Runway All-Star Designer, Jeffrey Sebelia, talks about his experience on the show. A highlight: BPR: Part of the prize for your win in the Bonnie and Clyde challenge was something about designing for a Lifetime movie event. Do you know more about that? JS: Yes, it was really awesome. I created a costume for Heather Graham to wear in "Flowers in the Attic." She really liked it and asked if she could keep it. It was a great experience. I travelled to Canada for the fitting and finishing. My only regret is that I had to leave early the next morning because my son had a football game. I would have liked to stay longer. BPR: Oh- you are such a good dad! That turned out to be an awesome prize. Will she be wearing it in the movie? Or was it for an event? JS: She will be wearing it in the movie. BPR: Well, we will certainly be on the lookout for it! Click here for the full interview. Click here to visit La Miniatura. Thank you Jeffrey!
