Runway Redemption - There is Still Time to Vote for your Favorite!

Kate? Ra'mon? or Val?  Who will return for Season 12?

Click here to vote.

Is this a good idea?

Would you rather see a designer return to compete in season 12, or in All-Stars 3?

Are you imagining the drama that is possible when the season 12 designers realize that an alum is in their cast?

Will they resent the returning designer?  Try to make friends?  Will there be sabotage?  

What do you think?

Thirty Questions for Nina Garcia


While in Manila for Philippine Fashion Week, Nina Garcia answers "30 Questions."

A highlight:

How do you approach being a judge on 'Project Runway'? 

 It's tough, because you don't want to hurt anybody's feelings, but at the same time you want to help them, and you want to be truthful and you want to be frank. But my biggest nightmare in being too frank is that I would ever disappoint anybody, or break anybody's spirit. [I think about] how I can say it in a way that is not mean or offensive... While I don't want to break anybody's spirit, I don't want to waste anybody's time. When I am sitting there with those designers, I am judging them with their peers, I am judging them with what I see in the market, with what I see as an editor.

TIm Gunn: Seasonal Home Fashion Tips

Project Runway Vietnam

A new episode of Project Runway Vietnam.

Tim Gunn for Nespresso

"From selecting colorful decor to designing a menu to delight your guests, the key to a terrific event, is quality, taste and style, which I try to incorporate into all details, from what I wear to how I design the space to the coffee I drink and serve my guests," said Tim Gunn. "Nespresso offers only the highest quality coffee and their coffee capsules and machines come in a variety of vibrant colors perfect for the summer season – adding style, sophistication and great taste to any celebration." 

 When planning your upcoming party, don't forget Tim Gunn's tips for entertaining: Simply adding a bright tablecloth and a colorful bouquet of fresh flowers can really spruce up a table, but you can take it one step further by adding your own personal touch to the decor. Create a fun place setting or add a statement center piece to bring it to the next level. Ignite your guest's senses with a delicious Nespresso coffee beverage. Whether it's a hot cappuccino or an iced latte, Nespresso has a Grand Cru coffee to suit every preference and their machines look great on your kitchen table or patio. You can pair these recipes with a tasty appetizer or dessert to really sweeten the menu. For a variety of hot and cold coffee recipes to serve at an upcoming party, go to: 

No summer party is complete without the flawless outfit and that doesn't necessarily mean you need to go out and purchase a new wardrobe to make it work. Mix and match bold staples from your existing wardrobe to tie the look together – just don't forget comfortable shoes and a transitional jacket or lightweight scarf in case it gets chilly.
