Click here for a new interview with Mondo Guerra and Michael Costello from

A highlight:

Q: What's ahead?

Costello: I'm looking to launch in Los Angeles, and I'm being the best dad I can be to my two kids. Some days are better than others, if you ask them.

Guerra: I'll be designing T-shirts for Piperlime again - my AIDS Day shirt sold out in hours. Old Navy has me doing a T-shirt for Gay Pride. Mostly, I'm overwhelmed with the attention and want to choose the right projects going forward. Before "Project Runway," I worked sewing costumes for a theater, so this has all been a big change. But right now, I'm the happiest I've ever been in my life.

A New Interview with Tim Gunn from

A highlight:

Q. Of course I have to ask you about the judging last season on “Project Runway.” What did you think about the judges’ decision to choose Gretchen over the fan favorite Mondo Guerra?

A. I was absolutely horrified. I was shocked by it. Mondo is going to be just fine. No doubt about it. He wasn’t even remotely — well, I shouldn’t say he wasn’t disappointed. He took the high road. He was nothing but unconditionally congratulatory of Gretchen and never said, “It should have been me.’’ He has great quality of character.

Christian Siriano's Sketch for Kate Middleton's Wedding Gown


InStyle Magazine asked several noted fashion designers to envision Kate's wedding gown. This is Christian Siriano's design.

A New Interview with Tim Gunn

A highlight:

You’ve had a big year, between Project Runway, appearing in that amazing Emmys opener, and a new book. Do you have a personal highlight?

I do and it’s not on your list, because you wouldn’t know about it. It was being part of filming the new Smurfs movie, which comes out next August. That was the most fabulous, wonderful, joyous nine days of filming I could ever imagine. It was glorious. Oh, but what am I. . .being on the New York Times best-seller list! I’m hugely proud of the book and I’m always saying if I were ever to get a tattoo it would be my Library of Congress catalogue number. Well, now I can say numbers! I could have one on each arm!

There is still time to order Tim's book for the holidays!
