Project Runway All-Star Guest Appearance (Spoilerish) + Preview

So, guess who's rumored to be making an appearance on Project Runway All-Stars?








Go on. Guess.





















Did you gasp?

According to Access Hollywood...

"Nicole Kidman has been hailed as a style icon and now the actress is set to help the contestants on “Project Runway: All Star Challenge” “make it work” with a cameo on the upcoming Lifetime special.

A source close to the show revealed exclusively to Access Hollywood that Nicole will be making a guest appearance on the design special. The source told Access that Nicole will help set up one of the challenges for the contestants."

Here's the preview:

I'm disappointed. I thought it would be you guys.


Gasp...yes. Shocked it wasn't our beloved TLo


I thought it was you guys too. But Nicole Kidman is awesome too :)


LOL! Me too! In PR world, we all seem to think you guys are major stars.


I was hoping for a TLo guest appearance!!! Or RuPaul - I'd take that too.

But Ms Kidman is not such a shabby guest.

But really: when WILL you two be making your on-screen PR debut? OH! YOU COULD BE THE CHALLENGE! Instead of some person no one's heard of, like Tiki Barber, the designers would have to create a look for each of YOU!

I think the designers - and the viewers - would be much more impressed with you two than with Tiki Barber.


Did you gasp?

Yes. Yes I did.


The first thing I thought was Tom and Lorenzo too. But I did gasp in delight for Nicole. C'mon though when are TLO going to be on?


I thought TLo too XP

And although Nicole Kidman is undoubtably awesome, I really wish it were you guys


Fabulous, I love her!


I remember Andy Cohen saying they almost got her on season 5 as a guest judge, so this is not totally a surprise. I was hoping it was you guys.


I remember when everyone bitched non-stop that PR had guest judges who weren't fashion experts. Now everyone wants TLo on. Bloggers about a TV show ≠ experts. Yay for inconsistency.


Nothing would make me gasp as much as you guys being on there. But Nicole Kidman will do for now.

What?! TLo at least has knowledge about fashion!

Anyway, I can't wait! And Tim Gun made a guest appearance on Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva. It was so good to see him again! And I can't wait till I have my weekly date with him, every Thursday.


I really did think it was you guys too. Oh well.

Now to the rest of the little minions: Chris March & Nicole Kidman in the same room--I die!


Guys, while we appreciate the thought, if you gave a second's serious thought to us acting as guest judges for the show, you're being a little delusional. If the show ever reached the point that they asked us to sit in the same chair that Diane Von Furstenberg, Roberto Cavalli, and other design legends have sit in, then that would be the point - long PAST the point, actually - when the show has jumped the shark.

Now, can we please get back to the topic at hand, which isn't us?


Dang, it's total group-think here - I also was thinking "NO - TLO?? - could it be??"

Then I find out it's only some beautiful blonde movie person who wears mostly good clothes.

*yawn*

Oh, I can't wait!! I hope it's true. She wears amazing gowns.

Mob rule threatens, but order is restored . . .


"Anonymous said...

Yes, but she was pregnant and couldn't do it. I think she'll be a fabulous judge.


I don't know, she's too big of a name, I think, but again, they had Sarah Jessica Parker. We'll see...


But TLo, I didn't think you were going to be judges... you said "So, guess who's rumored to be making an appearance on Project Runway All-Stars?"

I have no idea what I thought you were doing, but judging honestly didn't cross my mind XD


@Anon 10:41

Yes, and THAT is great reality TV!

I can't wait for the inevitable ALP confessional in which he sneers that Nicole Kidman is not his usual type of client.


Oh. MY. GOD!!!!


Wow, that is BIG, good for Lifetime!


OK, I gasped and clutched my pearls when I scrolled down the page.


Holly shit, that's awesome!!!!!!


YAY!!! That's exciting!!!!


GASP! J'adore Nicole. I'd even go straight for her (but she would have to don her schoolmarmish-repressed-sexuality look in The Others) "Birth" is one of my favorite movies, but I'm probably in the minority on that one.


She's so classy, that's so cool.


CanIGetYouAnythitng?

She'll be a fab judge. I just picture ALP, Chris March and Mychael having a hard time designing for her.


I read a New York Times article today about the demise of the Weinsteins that briefly mentioned Nicole Kidman making an appearance during some promos for Project Runway, so I guess this is what they were referring to.

Interesting read overall, not surprising that they've let their greed get the best of them and are now near bankrupt. Apparently Project Runway is one of the only good things going for their company even though they lost millions in the suit over it.

http://nytimes.com/2009/08/16/business/media/16wein.html?ref=business&pagewanted=all


Perfect choice: she has style, class and grace.


Fabulosa! I adore her!!


God, is PR going to be all about celebrities now? Eww.


Very nice, very nice...I'm guessing they will have to design a red carpet gown for her.


Nicole Kidman is the bomb actress ever and I loved the movie Moulin Rouge.


TLo: "Go on. Guess."

Me (screams): "TOM AND LORENZOOOOO!!"

(scroll down)

(pic of Ms. K)

Me (flat): "Oh."


I guess it's clear what my priorities are, professionalism be damned!


"Guys, while we appreciate the thought, if you gave a second's serious thought to us acting as guest judges for the show, you're being a little delusional."

Well hey, they could've designed for you....that would still be fun to watch!


screw this crap. i was literally holding my breath hoping it would be Austin Scarlett, I'm amazed he's not part of the all stars- he was damn ROBBED by Wendy Peppar (and yes, I'm still sore about it)

T&Lo would be very very cool as well and hopefully we'll see you guys on the show at some point, but Kidman is a big giant meh.


Well, I'm happy that they have Nicole. I mean, an Academy Award winner, for gosh sakes. It ALMOST makes up for having Lindsay Lohan and Christina Aguilera! At least this celeb knows how to dress and how to conduct herself in public, as well as being a pretty good actress. (And I'm not particularly a fan.)

I love TLo as much as anybody, but come on...

Plus, Tiki Barber is a correspondent on Today or some such, plus he's played pro football, so doubtless more people know him than TLo. Not FASHION people, of course, but the general public. More people watch a minute of the Super Bowl than read this blog.

(No, I'm not dissing TLo like our friend Anan 10:21 is.)

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

favorite actress + favorite tv show + blogging from favorite gays = I might die from the excitement


Sorry to go against the grain here but shes awful, cant act and almost every gown she wears has some ridiculous bow or other thing to distract form her totally expressionless face.


I did gasp. I *love* Nicole.


The cheekbones, good God, the cheekbones. I would slay puppies to have that woman's bone structure. And I also thought TLo would be on. This is mad groupthink. Love it.


Well it would be a big deal to have Nicole Kidman. Regardless of what your opinion of her is, the woman is still a major A-list award winning actress who is normally praised and applauded on the red carpet. Kathy Griffen once joked that Nicole is a "hanger with a head".

If the task was to make her an outfit, the winner would have some serious bragging rights and could get tons of exposure and business from it.

but it still would be faboulous to have Tlo make an appearance in some capacity even for a couple of minutes

Enhh...I'd rather see Tom jumping on and off the runway.


Will she flake out like JHo?


Fron The independent UK:

Nicole Kidman 1997 Oscar Dress

"Given her physique, it's not surprising that the world's top designers have long wooed Ms Kidman over her choice of dress on the red carpet in general, and the Oscars in particular. With the pick of Paris's finest couturiers, then, in 1997 the actress opted for an absinthe-green gown from Galliano's debut couture collection for the house of Christian Dior, which cost mere clients in the region of $30,000 to buy, and that is thought to have marked the return of couture rather than humble ready-to-wear (such things are relative, you see) to the red carpet."

Many people did not like this sheath dress but I did.

LOVE her and I think she will make a good guest judge. In the past she has taken a lot of risks that have paid off (even if she now pretty much goes with Eli Sabb (sp?)...not that there is anything wrong with that). Now if only they can strap her down and dye her hair back to brilliant red like it should be!

I agree, she's always wearing fabulous gown.


The designers are going to die.


YES!!!!!! Wow, that is big my friends!!!


LaFemmeFataledeNY

Fabulous choice! Nicole is so elegant, she never ceases to impress me with her stunning looks and style. I love her in Moulin Rouge too.


LifeTimeforHomos

I love her, one of my all time favorites on the red carpet. Hope the designers don't f* this one up.


I never really liked her as an actress and her look is mostly boring and predictable but she looks way better now than she did some years ago.


I did the gay gasp, sounding almost like Nathan Lane in The Bird Cage.

Possible, but ALP did suck up to Catherine Malandrino big time in season 3, so he could play it smart and make very nice with NK.


She scares me.
But she does have great taste in gowns. Surely it will be an evening gown challenge, that ought to be good.

I went to high school with Tiki Barber (and brother Ronde) and you know, wasn't really that impressed with his amount of fame in football (I'm not a sports fan), but when Tiki was on PR--that appearance made that choice bit of info suddenly brag-worthy to me. They were cool kids in high school, even.

What was he like? (Just kidding)

I was in Geometry class with Curtis Martin, myself.

But these guys are FAR from being unknown.


I am very surprised since the usually polite Tim Gunn snarked about her botoxed face.

I am very surprised since Tim Gunn, whose default position is fawning when it comes to the glitterati, snarked about her botoxed face.


Don't you worry, Tim will L-O-V-E her and won't have a bad thing to say about her.


I know it's good for the show to have celebrities as guest judges, but I we don't get one for everyone challenge, I imagine that'll get old quickly.


Yeah, I did the gay gasp too. :)


another laura

I did gasp, thank you. (I wonder if she will be able to move her face, tee hee)


" another laura said...

LOLOLOL


You guys...it's a "guest appearance." It's even reffered to as a "cameo," and it says she's setting up one of the challenges. They aren't designing for her, and she isn't a guest judge. I am sure La Kidman has other things to do than wait around for hours to film with amateurs for reality TV.


Nicole Kidman's fashion sense is highly-praised, she'll be a great judge.

Well, the woman served as a beard for 9 years, she's pretty much up to any task.


I'm underwhelmed.

At least it's not Katie Holmes.

True, that's why I don't think this is really happening. We shall see.

I don't think Access Hollywood would announce this if it wasn't true.


I am sure she just did a walk-on bit as a favor to the Weinsteins. Coming in and setting up the challenge (i.e. reading the cue cards instead of Heidi) would not be a huge time commitment. Don't you think they'd be flashing her pic everywhere like Lindsay Lohan's if she was making a sizable appearance? Yeah, they would. Nicole > Lindsay


Many people did not like this sheath dress but I did.

That Galliano did as much for her and her career as any of her movie roles, IMHO. Tom Cruise washed out beside her, which pleased me greatly.


"C. C. said...

That dress was fabulous, and yes, that dress made everybody talk about her the next day.


I'm excited, I think she's fabulous. If they're having freaking Lindsay Lohan, why not Nicole Kidman?


Re Kidman in Galliano, 1997 oscars

Just looked up pics. Gorge!!


I still wonder why they haven't had Carson Kressley as a guest judge yet.

No, I am. I don't think he's tacky at all. At least not with dressing dudes.


Oh man... I really thought it would be you guys, TOO. And so, although I do love Nicole, I felt oddly disappointed.

Why haven't you guys been on the show? Attention Lifetime: wouldn't you like to have one of the challenges be designing new outfits for TLo?


I am so excited about Thursday evening, I think I may break out in hives!!!
Just give me a Peartini with a Benadryl chaser!!!

===================

And when are they going to have that pregnancy challenge anyway?


suzq And when are they going to have that pregnancy challenge anyway?

For some of us plus sizes that is awfully close to out shape - I wonder how the designers would hide their disdain.

(My family carries our weight in the middle - coincidentally, have found some cute tops, sweaters and dresses in Target's maternity section. I guess that is no worse than when my cousin's wife (like a size 2) was pregnant anounced that she had just bought something at Lane Bryant. GRRR.


Haha, glad to see I'm not the only one who thought it was TLo!

Heidi- Your challenge: design outfits for two of the show's biggest (and most fabulous) fans.

*sigh* but I guess Nicole will do.
(j/k OF COURSE I gasped and said YOU LIE)!


I'm with so many others- I was all excited thinking it was YOU, our fave Tom and Lorenzo! I hope your day is made by the sheer number of people who felt the same way- "OOOOH! TLO! YAY!" followed by "Oh, Nicole Kidman? Yeah, that's kinda cool".


suzq said...

That would be an awesome challenge.


I had the great fortune of meeting her backstage one evening and she's very graceful in person.


Nicole Kidman looks fabulous in anything. I love her choice of colors.


HellsKitchenDude

I can't stand her.


So, it's going to be a 2-hour episode? Wow, that's cool.


Good choice!


Great, we'll get to see up close how frozen and botoxed her face is.


DaniellaF said...

ROFL. I doubt she'll allow that. She's probably going to be by the door with Tim far away from the camera. A quick in and out of the workroon.


Linensn'Things

I believe it when I see it.


Oh, Santino will behave, he's going to fall all over her, give her his business card; remember the episode with Nicky Hilton?


I can't wait to see what she'll be wearing :)


Linda the Prof

I could care less about Nicole Kidman or any other movie star. Who knows how much "style" one of these whores has and how much has to do with who they hire to style them? Sorry, I don't usually use language like that but I'm picking up on yours (Sharon Stone as an old whore.)

I realize, however, that networks have to book people who will attract audiences. (Incidentally, I am not into celebrity-ism as you can tell.)

On the other hand, though you don't want to be talked about, TLO, I agree with the others on here that I was disappointed that it wasn't you two who were going to appear on some show. I think a night show would do well to book you. In fact, I would certainly watch a half hour every week entitled something like "Fashion News" from TLO. Ever thought about approaching Bravo about that? You don't have to be on primetime if they think you're not sellable. I just think you guys do a terrific job and really know your stuff.


This is torture. How can there still be 52 hours to go?

Word.

I hate her. I've hated all her pretentious, half-hour too long movies. Australia anyone? Far and Away? Ugh.


Does anyone know whether the All-Stars show will be re-broadcast? I can see from Lifetime's schedule that it will be re-airing PR6 Epi 1 on Friday and subsequently, but I cannot tell whether the All-Stars show (a "movie" on Lifetime's website schedule) will be shown again.

Anyone have any info?

Some girlfriends want me to see "Julie & Julia" Thursday night with them ... ah, the conflicts!

All the best,

NDC


I truly did gasp. I worship Nicole, this is the highlight of my day!


Yes, Lifetime confirmed, folks:

"She’s graced many red carpets but can Nicole Kidman handle the catwalk? Or at least say “Make it work” as effectively as Tim Gunn? Mais oui! A rep for Lifetime confirms that the Australia actress will appear on the reality hit Project Runway."
http://tvwatch.people.com/2009/08/18/project-runway-on-nicole-kidman-shes-in/


i'm not dorothy gale

Damn! I thought it was YOU TWO. Nicole, oh, that's fine; her plastic features just give me the shivers.


Love her.

Does anyone know where I can watch the videos (I'm not in the US anymore)?

It's killing me a new series is starting and I won't be able to watch it. I have never missed an episode of PR an am not about to start now.


Nope, no gasp. She seems quite appropriate for the show. I was thinking bigger, like Shelly O. That would stun the hell out of me.


I am looking forward to the "Translucent One's" appearance.

How fucking awesome, darling. We missed you!


That photo makes me want to tear away her peroxide bottle and replace it with a milkshake.


ToddNY--Just popped in...Promise to do so more often!

I thought it would be Gwyneth Paltrow. I like Nicole better.


Aw. I love her.

Though I do miss her old forehead.
