Tying Up Loose Ends... Thursday night was the Finale of Project Runway Season 9. In case you might have been sleepin' --or not watching TV on Thursday night--they "crowned" a new Winner. Sorry for the lack of "Spoiler Alert" but Anya Ayoung-Chee, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, was the winner. The former beauty pageant contestant and "Miss Trinidad and Tobago 2008" in the Miss Universe pageant beat out Joshua McKinley, Viktor Luna and Kimberly Goldson for the top spot, showing a collection of ten very "Luxe Resort" looks, from long flowing printed caftan gowns, swimsuits, and off-the-body tunic dresses. All sleeveless, mostly plunging. "After The Runway" half-hour shows, where host Zanna Roberts Rassi of Marie Claire would moderate a post-show discussion about what had just happened in the episode. Very much like what MTV does for "Real World", "Jersey Shore". PS: I can't believe I put "Project Runway" in (almost) the same sentence as those two brain-numbing shows! I apologize.
Fashion Chattin' : Kimberly Goldson, Joshua McKinley and Nick Verreos, "Project Runway: After The Runway"I was invited--once again--to be a "special guest" on the last "After The Runway" episode entitled "Tying Up Loose Ends". Anya, as well as the rest of the finalists were all there. I gave my Congratulations to the Winner as well as gave a couple "Nick Two Cents" on each of the Finalists' NY Fashion Week Collections. My time with them was "short & sweet" in that we had to remain separated and sequestered from each other--until we shot the segment.
