Good for her. Although, she should probably be the one eating Reese's Peanut Butter Cups right now, not me.

I wasn’t even planning to care about the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG is such a depressing acronym), but then I saw Jennifer Carpenter in this dress.

Love this dress. Love it. Love her hair, too. Love that the shoes are staying out of it. A fan.

He was there too, but they didn't pose together. He looks ... not hot. Is the facial hair necessary for a role?

So now I have to ask: What’s up with her and Michael C. Hall? I have a history of caring too much about this couple and I’ve tried to be good but I’m afraid I’ve been sucked back in.

I believe the “Dexter” couple’s divorce was finalized in December, but I read that they were out on a candlelit date and even kissed — and “the next morning” they were spotted having coffee. That was maybe two weeks ago.

I also saw this blind item via

“Which Golden Globe-winning TV star’s short-lived marriage ended because he couldn’t curb his sex add*ction? The twice-mar­ried hunk was attending 12-step meetings to cure his cravings, but when he relapsed, his actress wife told him to hit the road!”

Everyone thinks that’s MCH. So is he a sex addict? Is that his marriage issue? Both times? Are he and Jennifer trying again anyway? What is the deal? And how can I stop caring? Is there a 12-step program for me?

From this angle, I don't really mind the belt Mila used. This is one of the only designs I can actually picture Miranda Kerr wearing. I cannot see her in Michael's winning design.

Michael Costello is on a roll. He is officially The Golden Boy of “Project Runway: All Stars.” I didn’t get it last week. I get it even less this week. I do like Michael, but I’m at sea when it comes to the judges’ choices.

Miranda is going to wear this? What a waste of a gorgeous body. Not that all designs have to be form-fitting, but you could hide a country under all that fabric. And it's all the same blah color. Sorry, not seeing it.

This week, the top three designs were all “easy” flowing dresses that mostly hid their models’ bodies. (Anya would’ve cleaned house if she were competing this season.)

It came down to BFFs Michael vs. Mondo and, this time, Michael won. Mila was also in the top and, of the three, I preferred her design. Very cherry. Very Mila.

But two of my favorites were in the “safe” zone — loved Kenley’s and Jerell’s designs this week.

Somehow Kara managed to scrape by another week and April was sent home. I’m not a huge Team April fan, but it was touching to see her tears. Kara can talk her way out of anything, but I do think she should’ve left for making her model look pregnant.

On Episode 4, “Good Taste Tastes Good,” the 10 remaining designers were given six hours to create a fabulous look inspired by (why?) a gelato flavor.

It was the fastest challenge in “Project Runway” history and, for the most part, it showed. I think that’s why there were so many draped gowns — it would’ve taken too long to fit anything more ambitious.

A gelato guy wheeled into the runway and each designer had to go up and choose their flavor, not knowing exactly what the color would end up looking like.

Michael chose Grapefruit (which was lighter than he expected) and he got to pick which designer went next, so obviously he picked his BFF…
• Mondo chose Cantaloupe and, for the designer to go next, he picked Mila
• Mila chose Milk with Sour Cherries
• April chose Blueberry
• Jerell chose Fruits of the Forest
• Kenley chose Passion Fruit
• Austin chose Vanilla Madagascar
• Anthony chose Green Tea
• Rami chose Kiwi
• Kara got stuck with Chocolate with Cayenne Pepper

Here's Mondo's cantaloupe, which I like more than Michael's grapefruit but less than Mila's cherry thing.

I would’ve picked Blueberry, if it was available.

Diane von Furstenberg came out as the guest judge and to warn them that they only had six hours to work. When she came out, Michael Costello gave another great I Just Won Miss America gasp. He gives good reaction. He’s also known for working fast so he was expected to do well in this challenge.

They set up a “mini Mood” right there, with limited fabric options. It really was about the fastest seamstress, not the best designer, and even Austin had to swallow his horror and use a glue gun.


Jerell [on Kara’s design]: “When I tell you her model was a rail, and she had her looking like a pregnant cupcake — that’s not the business.”


Miranda Kerr was also a guest judge and she said she would wear the winning design to an industry event, whatever that’s going to mean. Do you remember her as one of the models in Daniel Vosovic’s final runway show on Season 2? I remember her. He said something about how she had a great smile.

MONDO — Drapey kimono that’s very recognizable as cantaloupe and also very colorfully Mondo. I’m not into these colors but I respect the design. Love the belt with it. HIGHER SCORES. The judges loved this. Georgina said the colors and fabric shouldn’t go together but somehow it works. Angela wasn’t into the bright orange color and Isaac wished they had seen more of the model’s body. He didn’t find it sexy.

April's losing look. Not her worst of the season. Probably shouldn't have sent her home.

I don't know what Fruit of the Forest is supposed to look like, but I do like this creative design from Jerell. It's very him. Unique. Can't see Miranda in it, though.

ANTHONY — Not too impressed this time. But I am impressed with Anthony’s note that when Diane likes something she looks at the designer and winks that them. She doesn’t wink at Anthony. Oh well. I wouldn’t wink at him for this either. LOWER SCORES. They thought he went too conceptual and it got messy. Diane loved the skirt and the concept. Miranda thought there should’ve been more simplicity in the back.

KENLEY — I do like this and it is very Kenley. Cute and flirty, just like she said. SAFE – I thought this would be in the top three.

RAMI — Not into it, but the draped top is very Rami. Hate these colors. SAFE

MILA —I needed to look at this one several times before deciding I like it but don’t like the belt. Hate the accessories but I do like the rest of it. Could the model not find a bra? HIGHER SCORES. Isaac thinks it says cherry ice cream so well. They love this. I like it, but it’s funny that they love the one Mila design I was only OK with. Diane thought it looked like it was rushed and only done in six hours. Well, duh! Miranda likes that it looked easy to wear. Agreed. Hate the belt with it, though. Just saying.

JERELL — This is good. Very hippie chic. SAFE – I’m shocked. I thought this would be in the top three.

KARA — Not working for me. Unflattering. LOWER SCORES – As Georgina noted, Kara is so passionate when she talks but her designs don’t always reflect that. The dress wasn’t so great. Diane said it wasn’t flattering. They brought up the idea that the model looked like she was pregnant and hiding a baby bump. Isaac questioned whether she was an “all star.”

Kara's pregnancy dress. I would've sent her home for this.

MICHAEL — Something about this reminds me of both Chloe’s Season 2 finale collection and Korto’s Season 5 seatbelt design. Oh and Michael’s own PR Season 8 finale collection. It’s all too one color for me. Too much shapeless fabric. Nice necklace, though. HIGHER SCORES. Everything he does is gold to the judges. Isaac loves the dress. Georgina wasn’t into the color, but that was the color of his ice cream. Diane loved it — it probably helped that he kissed her ass big time. They love the movement and flow, like a goddess. They love his draping. How does Rami feel hearing that?

Love this passion fruit look from Kenley. The first thing I've really loved from her this season. So of course it was "safe"!

APRIL — I don’t like the top at all and the back is bad with a super short skirt. Too bad, since she had the best color. LOWER SCORES. It didn’t look finished, is the general consensus. Isaac really didn’t like the belt. Why are they singling out this belt when most of them were off? Georgina questioned April’s confidence and vision.

AUSTIN — A bit of a yawn for me. Just not a wow. SAFE

The winning design came down to BFFs Mondo vs. Michael. Why not Mila?


Here are the 9 remaining all-stars, ranked in order of my personal preference:

• Rami Kashou (Season 4) — (I still believe in you, Rami, but I’m going to need you to focus up)
• Mila Hermanovski (Season 7)
• Anthony Williams (Season 7)
• Michael Costello (Season 8)
• Mondo Guerra (Season 8 )
• Jerell Scott (Season 5)
• Kenley Collins (Season 5)
• Austin Scarlett (Season 1)
• Kara Janx (Season 2)

Rami, why aren't you here?

I just saw this. I hope it’s wrong. But it feels right. It feels preordained.

*March 22 update* Yep. All the spoilers were accurate. Mondo won. * End update *

When “Project Runway: All Stars” started I felt like it was specifically set up for Mondo Guerra to win as some kind of karmic absolution for Season 8. Another poster speculated that it was set up to favor Austin Scarlett.

So it does make sense that they would take the 1/2 spots.

Here’s something I found on from September:

“According to our source, fan favorite Mondo Guerra walks away with the prize. That makes sense since many are still angered that he lost season eight to Gretchen Jones. Heidi Klum even wore a dress he designed for the show’s finale in a show of solidarity with the designer. Our tipster says the plan was to hand it to him all along, and that angered the other designers, including Mondo, but he took the win nonetheless.
Apparently second place goes to season one dandy Austin Scarlett. Victorian lamp shade designer Michael Costello comes in third, despised hipster denizen and cat thrower Kenley Collins was fourth, and Jerell Scott came in fifth. Rami Kashou, the master draper who was in the finals during his initial season, is supposedly kicked out before the half-way mark. Poor thing.
Again, these spoilers may or may not be accurate, but there they are nonetheless.”


I hate the unfairness of already planning to give it to Mondo before anyone even showed up, but that’s a believable tip.

The idea of Kenley beating Rami makes me want to throw something. Rami is still my #1, followed by Mila — I loved her Miss Piggy dress, despite it not fitting the badly explained challenge criteria. Kenley? Stop it. Jerell? Meh. Austin? Not feeling it so far this season, but the judges and producers adore him. They love Mondo too — and Michael Costello is made of Teflon. Sometimes I love his stuff, other times I don’t see it, but to PR he can do no wrong.

Where’s Anthony? To me, he’s the most pleasant surprise so far this season. He wasn’t on my all-stars radar before but his work is growing on me.

Do you believe these spoilers? Do you like them? Will giving Mondo a PR win give you a feeling of closure after The Season of the Witch or can nothing be done to cleanse that stain?

I don't get it. I don't get what they were looking for and I don't get how Michael's garment, left, won over Rami's. I didn't like Rami's look at all, but it seemed to match what they eventually described as the challenge objective.

I think this was one of those challenges that was better in theory than practice.

Despite Joanna Coles insisting that designing for Miss Piggy was one of the best challenges they’ve ever had on “Project Runway” — and Georgina Chapman saying when you design on commission you have to focus on the client —  it never seemed to occur to anyone to explain what the client wanted. The word “flamboyant” seemed to be all that was required.

The 11 designers had to create a cocktail dress for Miss Piggy to wear to promote her movie “The Muppets.” I was thinking along the same lines as Mila — since Miss Piggy had designs made for her by Prada and other major designers, they probably wanted something stylish and classy rather than a costume.


I copied this wonderful lineup of Episode 3 photos from the lovely and amazing Blogging Project Runway — The wig Mondo gave his model looked like a cheap "Annie" knockoff, or maybe Gilly from "Saturday Night Live."

I still don’t understand why they went to the fashion designers of “Project Runway: All Stars” for a challenge where it looks like what they wanted was something  they could’ve gotten at a party store. No one could love Rami more than I do (except maybe his friends and family) but I gasped and cringed when I saw his polka-dot garment — especially with that necklace on top. I thought for sure he would be in the bottom, with Mila, Anthony and maybe even Gordana’s looks in the top.


Once again, Anthony impressed me while by boy Rami disappointed. The judges didn’t see it that way, but I still don’t know what were they looking for. Rami’s over-the-top look and Kenley’s pink giraffe print at least looked similar, but then … Michael won. Why? They said they didn’t want black because it wasn’t fun and flamboyant and just wasn’t right for Miss Piggy, then they picked one of the darker, more “sophisticated” outfits.

At least the judges (including good sport Eric Daman and, thankfully, no Isaac Mizrahi) and I agreed that what Austin made was horrific. Austin should’ve been in the bottom two with … I don’t know who, but not Mila. Miss Piggy would look adorable in that ’60s mod cocktail dress. And maybe Gordana‘s simple pink dress wasn’t right for Miss “Moi” but at least they all thought it was pretty. I can’t imagine any circumstance where anyone would want to wear Austin’s garment. Those wings!

Having said that, it was probably Gordana’s time to go. Austin is one of PR’s major stars and there was no way they were letting him go this early in the game. Mila made an awesome cocktail dress, it just happened to be the opposite of what they wanted (without ever making it clear in advance what they wanted!)

Here are the 10 remaining all-stars, ranked in order of my personal preference after the third episode (big changes from last week!):

• Rami Kashou (Season 4)
• Mila Hermanovski (Season 7)
• Anthony Williams (Season 7)
• Michael Costello (Season 8)
• Mondo Guerra (Season 8 )
• Jerell Scott (Season 5)
• Austin Scarlett (Season 1)
• Kenley Collins (Season 5)
• Kara Janx (Season 2)
• April Johnston (Season 8)

Anthony's dress was sexy and unique and just "wowed" me.

Well, well, well. I’ll say this — the “Project Runway” All Stars have more power to surprise me than I expected.

On Episode 2, “A Night At the Opera,” both Mondo and Rami were declared “Safe” instead of battling it out on the runway. And my boy Rami got lucky to be declared safe. That was a classic magenta nightmare. Kenley also got lucky to be safe. Kara’s print was insane. Sweet P — I’m done defending Sweet P now.

I do love Austin's dress and the styling was perfect. I can't really argue with this win.

The challenge gave the designers one day to make a couture gown for the opera. But, as Anthony said, they were insulting “couture” by even comparing that to what they were doing. Instead, they were making “really, really pumped-up prom dresses.”

This was Austin’s challenge to lose and he did not lose. However, to me, he should’ve lost to Anthony. I’m shocked that I loved Anthony’s dress as much as I did but it was PERFECT. So sexy but sophisticated. That is the showstopper they were looking for.

I did like Austin’s “modest,” “tasteful” and “fresh” dress, though. But this was his comfort zone and he was expected to win. It’s almost boring to give it to the ballgown frontrunner.

The judges adored Michael’s black dress and put him in the #2 spot after Austin. Usually I am with them on Michael’s stuff, but this time it was just OK for me. For me, it came down to #1 Anthony, #2, Austin.

The bottom two were April and Sweet P and they made the right call to eliminate Sweet P. She deserved to go home for that cute picnic dress, which NO ONE would wear to the opera.


One thing I love about this season is how the designers are so open in their criticism about their fellow designers — not to their faces, of course.

Here’s a taste:

Mondo — Out of all the designers, Kara is the weakest. (I’m frustrated with Kara for already freaking out in classic Kara style. She has always been her own worst enemy.)

The judges loved Michael Costello's black dress, which was just OK for me.

Jerell — Sweet P was using the same silhouette as the unconventional challenge, for which she almost went home.

April — Everyone thought she made a mistake to dye her fabric.

Austin — Michael’s design was too celebrity, not enough socialite.


Kenley — Too pink and cutesy. Very young prom looking. SAFE, which is surprising.

Gordana — Love the colors and styling. SAFE

Rami — Not into it. Shocked that this is from him. HATE the color. SAFE, which is also surprising.

Mila — Basic asymmetrical black. Like it but not a wow. SAFE

Sweet P — Come on. I want to support you, but… LOWER SCORES. Angela liked the colors, but it was declared a day dress and not fit for opera. Nobody liked the bodice. Isaac said that is the focus of the dress when a woman goes out and if we say anything else we’re lying. Whatever you say, darling.

Mondo — Definitely different, unique and creative. Not sure it belongs at the opera but I appreciate the effort. SAFE

Jerell — I kind of like this, despite how unflattering it is to the body. SAFE

This is for the opera, Sweet P?

Kara — Curtains. She’s wearing your neighbor’s living room curtains. LOWER SCORES. She doesn’t usually do prints. Isaac loved the idea of the print but he said if you’re going to be so simple it has to be perfect. But she did add pockets, which is cool. Where is she in this dress, Georgina wondered.

Anthony— LOVE this. Sexy, sophisticated, white draped gown. HIGHER SCORES. The judges loved the new use of white. Georgina was on the fence about the black glove and shoes.

Austin — Second favorite, after Anthony’s. Surprised to have Anthony’s as my favorite, but it was the best, to me. Love the styling of this model, though. HIGHER SCORES. Isaac loved this dress because it’s modest even though he already said women are basically all about the bodice when they go out. Isaac found it “fresh” and “tasteful.”

April — Very red, but otherwise not that great and she seemed to be seriously distancing herself from it even as it just walked on the runway. LOWER SCORES. Agreed. Guest judges Mark Badgley and James Mischka hate red and black together. They also thought it looked tortured.

Michael — Love the top, otherwise it was good but not great. HIGHER SCORES. Isaac couldn’t believe Michael made this in a day. He took away all his modesty talk and said this is Kim Kardashian goes to the opera. The judges adore this. Angela wants to wear this dress.

Here's the high and low opera line-up.

Here are the 11 remaining all-stars, ranked in order of my personal preference after the second episode:

• Rami Kashou (Season 4)
• Mila Hermanovski (Season 7)
• Mondo Guerra (Season 8 )
• Michael Costello (Season 8)
• Austin Scarlett (Season 1)
• Anthony Williams (Season 7)
• Jerell Scott (Season 5)
• Gordana Gehlhausen (Season 6)
• Kenley Collins (Season 5)
• Kara Janx (Season 2)
• April Johnston (Season 8)

Both Rami, left, and Mondo are more polished and sophisticated than everyone else. I do think Mondo's design is very Christian Siriano, ironically.

Even though Rami Kashou won the first challenge on “Project Runway: All Stars,” it seems like this season exists mostly to bring back Mondo Guerra and let everyone gush about him.

As much as I like Gordana, this was my least favorite design.

I love Mondo, but have they already decided he’s going to win? I wonder.

Not that I’m any better — I already think Rami SHOULD win. But will he? If “fierce” superstahhhh Christian Siriano hadn’t been there on Season 4, Rami would’ve already won — easily.

I disagree with the very existence of Isaac Mizrahi on “All Stars,” but I really did not appreciate his comment that Rami’s 99 cent look too closely matched his point-of-view dress from the day before. I’m glad that was shot down by everyone else.

I missed Mila.

I already think this is going to come down to Rami vs. Mondo in the end. And Joanna Coles, this season’s Tim Gunn, has already said somebody basically chokes in the end. Will it be Mondo or Rami … or someone else? For some reason, I think it’s Mondo.

I’m most excited to see more from Rami, Mila Hermanovski, Kara Janx, Jerell Scott, Mondo and, weirdly enough, Michael Costello. Love the guy — and his use of the same 99 cent mop fabric was way better than the overrated April Johnston.

I was disappointed in what I saw from Kenley Collins and Austin Scarlett, possibly because I expected so much more from them. I didn’t have a real issue with Sweet P’s 99 cent dress, but that’s me. I feel bad that Elisa Jimenez was eliminated, but I never understood what she was doing there to begin with. Just for drama?

I love you, Elisa, even though I never really saw you as an "All Star." I would've sent Gordana home.

At least Elisa is never boring. I prefer bizarre to boring. On that note, I have to say, I find Anthony Williams’ personality much more engaging than his designs. At this point, Anthony, April, Gordana, Kenley and Austin are on my naughty list.

One other thing I didn’t care for, beyond some of the fashion and the fact that Isaac is here when he has his own judging spot on “The Fashion ShowAngela Lindvall as host. It’s like she doesn’t know why she’s there either. Put your back into it, lady.

I really like what Michael Costello did. I keep calling him Michael Costello or Michael C. even though he's the only Michael this season. Force of habit.

Rate the designs here on the official site’s “Rate the Runway” page.

Here are the 12 remaining all-stars, ranked in order of my personal preference after the first episode:

• Mila Hermanovski (Season 7)

Totally Team Edith on "Downtown Abbey." Can't wait for Season 2 to start on Jan. 8.

My beloved AOL TV Squad has moved to HuffPo and I can’t find the easy monthly premiere and finale listings they used to post. Alas. So I went to CinemaBlend and found this nifty list of 2012 mid-season premiere dates. It will have to suffice.


As reader Bill noted, “Read your piece about AOL TV moving to Huffington Post. I miss their montly TV schedules too. I found a website  with a monthly schedule that I think is better than CinemaBlend’s. It lists three awards shows coming up this month — People’s Choice Awards, Golden Globe Awards and the SAG Awards. CinemaBlend’s list had none of these. Check it out:

So head there if you don’t get enough from what’s below. Thanks, Bill!
