Elsewhere: Mighty Closet

Mighty Girl featured me as part of their Mighty Closet project. It was fun to work with Maggie. In setting aside clothes for the photo shoot I realized how much cute stuff I own. We didn’t even get to coats, jackets or boots!

Maggie is a great photographer so head over to Mighty Girl and check it out. Mabel and Moxie totally stole the show btw.

Editrix

Meet Carine Roitfeld, editor of French Vogue. Kind of fabulous, kind of scary, but she did put a man in a dress on the cover. It’s the least she could do.

Project Runway: Disco Hair-Cutting Cape

Penned by molly in Media

Last night’s Project Runway reunion show hadd more personality than the previous episodes of the season. There’s a great recap over at Jezebel. You should read it. Michael Kors’ laughing jag is spectacular. My favorite moment of the season is when he called crybaby Ricky’s garment during the wrestling challenge a “disco hair-cutting cape.” Hot damn. Also, Chris was robbed.

Project Runway: Episode 4, Season 4

Penned by molly in Media

I hated the challenge in last night’s episode. Contestants had to use the old fat clothes of the newly thin to make a new garment. Ugh. The majority of plus-size clothes use the worst materials… close your eyes and imagine with me a polyester chiffon shift with a vaguely “ethnic” print layered on top of a darker fabric, worn with stretch pants. At least they had a lot of material. I’m serious.

Nothing on last night’s show was a wearable garment, except for the cute dress Jillian made from $10 worth of red fabric . But then the garments on Project Runway rarely are finished. They are sample garments, proof of concept, not ready-to-wear or couture.

And I’m glad they didn’t hype the Bluefly.com accessories wall. That’s getting old.

And the Michael Kors bit about Chris’ confection looking like Shirley Maclaine as a Parisian Whore? Here’s the reference.

Project Runway: Episode 3, Season 4

Penned by molly in Media

I’m surprised it took the producers this long to make a menswear challenge. I’m surprised how poorly some people did. I’m surprised so many people chose to make tailored clothes when they had no idea what they were doing. You can’t hide a poor fit in a collared shirt and fitted jacket.

My favorite was Kit’s creation, the one with the fleece blazer. It succeeded at making a casual garment from classic influences.

Fantasy Project Runway: Episode 1

Penned by molly in Media

So I managed to pick the winner and and the almost-loser on last night’s Project Runway. And somehow I picked a straight guy? Anyway, my favorite ensemble was by Chris (who I hear used to live in San Francisco and do costumes for Beach Blanket Babylon). All 15 looks are pictured here.

Interesting spot: I own one of the belts pulled off the Blueflydotcom accessories wall (Christian used it in beige). I do like Bluefly and you can score good discounted stuff on there. Interesting to watch the sponsorships on Project Runway evolve.

Fashion Ewww

Penned by molly in Media

As if trying on clothes at an outlet store isn’t scary enough, a Liz Claiborne discounter in Indiana had to burn their merchandise due to an “infected employee.” The article doesn’t say what sort of infection the employee has but said that a test for drug-resistant staph was negative.

It’s enough to make you want to shop online for the rest of your life. But that’s irrational because somewhere along the distribution chain people are sewing, folding, stacking and shipping all clothes, whether you buy them on Maiden Lane or online.

When I was a kid a friend of my mother’s told a story about a lady who bought a ski jacket at K-Mart, took it home, wore it and got bit by the snake that had been sewn into the sleeve “because who knows what kind of places they make these things in.” I’m sure it’s an urban legend but it was the most awesome story I’d heard by age 8.

(thanks Carl for sending!)
