So much for our vacation.

Thursday, December 21, 2006 by

Entertainment Weekly has named Project Runway one of its Top Entertainers of 2006. Everyone looks gorgeous in the photos even if we question some of the styling choices.

What you probably didn't know is that a couple days before the photo shoot, Laura called us and said "I need my gay posse there!" Just guess what we said.

Anyway, fate, torrential rain and an overturned tractor trailer on the Jersey Turnpike prevented us from getting to the shoot on time. We did however arrive in time to get one rain-drenched photo.


After that, we went back to Laura's for a while and then on to Malan's party. We do it all for you, darlings.

By the way, Laura made her own dress and if we recall correctly, Uli is wearing Vera Wang.

Edited to add:

Watch the Access Hollywood video about the EW photo shoot here.


Also, don't miss Bravo's exclusive behind-the-scenes video at the EW shoot. It's a great video!

I love that picture of Laura in Entertainment Weekly. A little weird, maybe, but kind of awesome.

Uli looks freakin' gorgeous!!!

Could Jeffrey be ruder in the article, comparing Uli to WalMart designers? I swear, there isn't a gracious bone in his body.

OMG, they look fabulous, especially Laura and Tim. I'm so jealous!!!

DolceLorenzo said...

Laura looks freaking GORGEOUS! Tom, darling, you look hot : - )

Uli could be a model. Wow. As I said over on BPR, Jeffrey looks like an Egyptian slave boy extra from a Victor Mature pic, and I like it. (He is a twit for saying that about Uli though. I think he's heard a lot about how she got robbed.)

Gorgeous Things said...

Oh you lucky boys!!!! How faboo everyone looks. And to get the call. It's faint-worthy. Stoopid Jersey Turnpike. But at least you got there for our girl!

Good Lord, Angry Little Peanut looks positively dreamy in the photo! I want that photographer for all my future shoots.

Great picture, guys! They all look amazing. Then, you get to the article and Jeffrey does it again. What an ASS**LE!!

They all look great, but I can't get over how good Jeffrey looks in the picture.

"What Uli does...is very marketable," adds Sebelia. "But if greatness were a measure of number of sales, then Wal-Mart designers would be great. Uli will probably make more money than me."

I'm sorry but Jeffrey is a jerk. Great montage. I can't stop looking at Laura. She looks gorgeous.

I really wish they had larger versions of those pictures. They all look great...including you, fabulously glamorous Tom! By the way, where's Lorenzo?

I know it's because of the photo shoot, but Laura is wearing a lot of makeup. She looks gorgeous, though.

Heidi - I don't like her hair.
Tim - Hot! Mr. Darcy hot!
Michael K - He looks OK.
Michael - Not sure what's going on there.
Laura - Fabulous! Just fabulous!
Nina - Sweet...and I love her ring.
Uli - Amazing, like a goddess.
Jeffrey - Best picture. Almost unrecognizable.

Crow Winters said...

I honestly am not understanding why everyone thinks what Jeff said is assholeish? Am I missing something?

It seems mostly true. Uli will probably make more money then Jeff.

Any chance Laura might be selling 8' x 10's of her shot? In B&W of course. It's a hot shot...reminds me of those old Vogue photos. Wouldn't mind hanging that on my wall..and yes...I'm serious. She could donate the proceeds to charity...or start a college fund for the latest rugrat. :)

I agree, boys, everyone looks gorgeous. Thanks for the link!

Amazing pictures! I wish they had done all the designers from Season 3.

The proportions of Jeffrey's thick, long, graffiti'd neck always make me think of a hyena.

How fabulous is Laura? She's like a modernized version of Kate Hepburn. Gorgeous. If I wore feathers around my neck, I'd probably break out in an allergic rash.

And Tom, you hottie, where's Lorenzo?

That's a terrific set of pictures. They look amazing. Uli's is definitely my favorite.

Anonymous 7:43, I'd totally buy one too. On the one hand, I'm sort of alarmed by how much I adore Laura, but on the other hand, she is fabulous! Plus I know that basically everyone (everyone sane, that is) agrees with me.
It's such an interesting picture; actually, they're all really, really well done. Even Jeffrey looks semi-attractive.

Laura looks so beautiful, and that is probably my favorite picture of Uli. I like her with longer hair because it makes her look a little less bony.

Vic said...

I agreed with every statement until that one, Cecily. What bonehead would leave no room on his neck for baby #2 or even #3? I surmise he's stopping at siring one child, or perhaps he's planning to tattoo his forehead and nose in honor of his other progeny. He's a peanut and will always be one.

Jeffrey is just jealous of Uli. Uli obviously was the only one with a halfway original vision.

not fair. wwfan says 1st day out of nutty house and you make me read all the comments
so I hope I wake you up T&L.
glad to be out n survived the ordeal. having the JB CD to get me over the day of intense combat duty helps.
in fact I was calming the craziest with JB music and healing myself.
Not very funny indeed. NO bravo indeed.
welcome me back. so over PR but its fun 2C all the familiar faces esp. Uli looking really hot. And of course Jeff and JB are my fav. well everyone too.

Anonymous said...

Wow! Laura looks absolutely gorgeous! And Uli looks the best I have ever seen her. Jeffrey doesn't look like his usual dirty self, he actually looks showered and clean in the photo. Who knew a little soap and water could make such a difference? But he's still an angry little peanut. Heidie basically disappears among the fabulousness of Laura, Tim and Uli. LAURA rises above all others on the scale of fabulosity.

Anonymous said...

I must say pretty much everyone looks lovely (though Michael K. is looking a little rough to me... albeit less taneorexic). Tim looks adorable, and a bit like he swiped that outfit Austin wore to the season 1 reunion... you know, the glam Paul Revere get-up.

Personally I think Jeffrey and Laura stand out the most vividly. Uli looks pretty, but even with that flow-fest, she sort of disappears next to Laura, and I was shocked to see Jeff so... glowy. Good look for him I must say.

*~J~*

Anonymous said...

Stop dumping on Heidi, y'all. What I love about her is that even as a beautful woman and a professional model, she doesn't feel a need to be an attention vampire. I think the styling and expression of her photo was deliberately mellowed down to let the spotlight shine on the show's true stars: the designers and judges. She is a true gracious hostess; the show is not an ego vehicle for her. She doesn't need to glam it up and pose for this picture. Good for her.

p.s. I also find nothing offensive about what Jeffrey said. Uli does aim her aesthetic for a broader buyer.

Laura, Tim and Uli Look absolutely breath-taking. I honestly didn't recognize Uli at first.

And the Peanut is flirting with a uni-brow.

UGH. Did you have to post Jeffrey's ugly mug on your page?? He's why I stopped visiting BPR.
I'm not into purple coolaid.

The only year-end list that Jeffrrey belongs on is the same one that includes Britney's brazilian.

ooooh. Just read the article. Sounds like Tiny Peanut is a tad bitter & that he has little (if any) commercial prospects.

Funny that he should compare Uli to Walmart: With that NASCAR neck, he is the one who looks like he belongs at Walmart.

And ironic that he should talk about 'greatness' not being determined by sales numbers. While that may be true, a major measure of greatness is in how you treat other people, and on that count Jeffrey fails miserably as well.

Laura looks regal and beautiful. I love her unique but classy sense of style. And the hair style looks outstanding!

Bill said...

Might I propose a "Proxy Gay Posse" for Laura? If you guys ever get stuck on the Turnpike again, call Ed and I, and we will dash into NYC to fulfill your committments. We could have you boys cast in rubber and make Tom & Lorenzo masks. You could feed us fabulous bon mots and ripostes by cell phone (we'd wear ear pieces), whisper witty banter and clever conversation. We'd never be able to match your fabulosity, but we'd try our damnedest and beat a hasty retreat once you arrived.

I don't think so. Uli's collection looked like anything Donatella would send down the runway. Jeffrey's collection looked like something you'd find at any mall.

Unknown said...

Uli WILL make more money than Jeffrey because SHE is the BETTER designer! He should have taken the mentorship with INC, he could have learned a few things. Jeffrey needs to get over himself and lose the "addict's chip on the shoulder." No other designer, not even the wretched Keith Michael, EVER wished a stroke on a fellow contestant.

Hey, I just saw the most bizarre version of PR last night. It was from Austria.

In the challenge, some girl named Maria had to make outfits for 7 kids, from her curtains. Tim Gunn was dressed as a nun & singing 'Climb Ev'ry Mountain'. Then a bitchy blonde said Auf Viedersen to Christopher Plummer. And were a bunch of boys in lederhosen: totally GAY. But strangely, after their runway show the models just kept walking, over the mountains to Switzerland.

Maybe it was the egg nog.

Happy Holidays!
