According to this interview in The Miami Herald, Veronica Webb will not be Tim Gunn's co-host in season two of "Guide to Style." No surprise there... Who will be the new co-host? Does Tim even need one?

Ricky Lizalde will be showing his designs during Escondido's Fashion Week.

Jack Mackenroth gets paired up with "Top Design" winner Matt Lorenz of all people to judge a design contest in Seattle in the latest version of Reality Worlds Collide.

According to WWD, Elle Magazine still hasn't hired a replacement for Nina Garcia. Here is the relevant paragraph:

ELLE RAISER: Though Elle and former fashion director Nina Garcia have not yet settled on the terms of their future working relationship (nor her relationship to "Project Runway," since Elle is contracted to the show through season five), the magazine elevated several staffers, including Garcia's old assistants, to fill the gap. First, Kate Lanphear, senior style and market editor who is said to be a possible successor for Garcia, has been promoted to style director. Joann Pailey, formerly senior fashion market editor, was promoted to market director. Also, Jade Frampton was elevated to a market editor and Malina Joseph has been named fashion bookings editor. A replacement for Garcia, who was fired from her position earlier this month, has not yet been appointed.
