Best Fashion One-Liner Ever: On Bravo’s Project Runway 3 last night, designer/judge Michael Kors (why don’t they describe him by that ridiculous ‘jet set’ moniker anymore?) said about Los Angeles contestant Jeffrey’s plus-size sack: “That looks like Comme des Garçons goes to the Amish country.”
What To Dread This Season: Exactly how the Weinstein Brothers, who coproduce the show, will slip in a not-so-subtle tie-in to one of their forthcoming films. Remember Season 1 when shoo-in designer Kara Saun based her entire collection on the bros’ The Aviator — and lost the grand prize because of unoriginality? My best guess is that this season’s inspiration will be Quentin Tarantino’s Killshot coming from The Weinstein Co. this fall. (I don’t see much retro chic in their Miss Potter, about the life of Beatrix Potter, author of “The Tale of Peter Rabbit”.) Far be it from Harvey to miss any opportunity for crass and inappropriate marketing.
