Last night, Helena Handbasket and Helen Back hosted me for a Project Runway premiere party at their house, which included the following show-inspired elements:
bow-tie pasta with button mushrooms
wine (because there is whining on the show)
Santino-inspired Michael Kors impressions
I wore a special outfit consisting entirely of Gap brands (parent company of Bahnahnah Republic), topped off with my classic “B. Republic” tee. Helen Back also wore some Banana; we were both shocked to discover that the mentorship with the Banana Republic design team was not one of the prizes! How embarrassing for us as we kowtowed to the old design regime…
It looks to be an interesting season. My favorite designs last night were Alison, Michael, Keith, Kayne, Robert, Katherine, and Laura.
Current top finalist predictions: Alison, Robert, Laura.
