Who wears a fat suit, who borrows costumes, and more 'Mindy Project' style scoop

Dressing The Mindy Project‘s Mindy Lahiri is a costume designer’s dream —  the title character is a doctor, which means she can afford to fill her closet with designer labels, and the star who plays her is obsessed with all things fashion.

“I will be up at 1 in the morning and I’ll get an e-mail from Mindy that says, ‘Did you see this great outfit at ShopBop?’ She loves, loves, loves clothes,” says Salvador Perez (Pitch Perfect, Veronica Mars, Castle), who notes that costume fittings with Kaling — who is also the series creator — can last up to four hours. “In the real world, you don’t need to have ten new outfits a week, but the character does. [Kaling] gets to live out her fashion editor fantasies through the show.” As season two unfolds, Mindy’s wardrobe keeps pace with real-world fashion trends. “The character has a signature style, but as fashion has evolved, so has Mindy [Lahiri]’s look, because she’s constantly shopping. We’re working with what’s new on the market,” explains Perez, who was recently elected President of the Costume Designers Guild. The designer has also tweaked the character’s costumes to complement her short hair, which will soon grow back thanks to the magic of television. “Sadly…you won’t really be seeing that short hair anymore. I personally was a big fan of the short hair, it gave us a whole new way to dress her. We took away the layers and the collars, we did boat necklines, and we used pieces that showed off her beautiful neck. The wig showed that off, so I really played it up.”

Meanwhile, Perez says that Kaling isn’t the only Mindy Project star who gets caught up in the costumes. Chris Messina and Ed Weeks have been known to borrow an item or two from the wardrobe closet. “They love the clothes so much that they want to wear them out. It’s the highest compliment,” admits Perez. “A lot of times I’ll dress someone and they’ll say, ‘I would never wear that [in real life].’ I’m like, ‘We’re not asking you to wear it. We’re asking your character to wear it.’ When they want to borrow, it’s flattering. if they have parties or events, they’ll ask to borrow a suit.” Perez is happy to oblige, with one caveat: “I’ll [say], ‘As long as it comes back, please wear it with good health.'”

'Masters of Sex' wardrobe designer on the show's come-hither costumes

You might think there wouldn’t be much clothing on a show called Masters of Sex, but wardrobe designer Ane Crabtree says there are plenty of period costumes to be seen. Based on Thomas Maier’s biography Masters of Sex: The Life and Times of William Masters and Virginia Johnson, the Showtime series — which follows human sexuality researchers Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) — is set in St. Louis, Missouri in 1958.

“The crazy thing is that it’s all true, and it’s way crazier than anything you could make up,” says Crabtree. “But what’s also interesting is how do you peel away the layers — figuratively and literally — visually… to get to the bottom of the character. You’re seeing [the characters] unpeeling, getting dressed, their reluctance to get undressed. All of it tells the story.”

Crabtree referenced old issues of Harper’s Bazaar when creating the wardrobe for the female leads and, to her surprise, some of the looks were familiar. “You [see women] wearing the same thing today,” she explains of how the costumes resemble today’s real-world fashion trends. “If you didn’t have the 50’s hair and the 50’s make-up and the pointy bra, you could wear [the wardrobe] now. It [looks like] J. Crew or Zara, but with different shoes and accessories.”

'Face Off' exit Q&A: 'I don't regret it at all'

Forget imitation, reinvention was the sincerest form of flattery on last night’s episode of Face Off. When horror hostess Elvira showed up to play guest judge, she challenged the nine remaining artists to update her iconic goth-meets-Valley-Girl image.

“I’m going to be looking for a hip, young, edgy take on my look,” Elvira told the contestants as she explained this week’s Foundation Challenge. Once the works were completed, Elvira singled out Roy Wooley (season three) and Tate Steinsiek (season one) for creating her favorites. The win — and immunity from elimination — went to Wooley for his purple, bat-themed Mistress of the Dark, which Elvira chose because it was a “combination of spooky, sexy, and funny.”

From there it was onto the Spotlight Challenge, where each contestant was tasked with inventing a character inspired by an art movement. With only half of the allotted time remaining, Steinsiek dropped his mold on his finger, which resulted in a bloody mess. The production team ordered him to stop working and go see a doctor, causing him to fret about being able to complete the challenge. Not to worry, the contestants worked together to keep the injured artist’s creation on track until he returned. When it came time to face the judges, newbie Laney Parkhurst, Miranda Jory (season two), and Laura Tyler (season three) had the week’s top looks, while Steinsiek and newbies Scott Ramp and Eddie Holecko were on the bottom.

In the end, Tyler was declared the winner and Ramp was sent home. Read on to find out what Ramp said about what he would have done differently, what he’s working on now, and whether he’d be up for coming back to Face Off as a veteran.  READ FULL STORY

The New Atlanta's Emily Lipman on following in Kim Kardashian's (retail) footsteps

Is The New Atlanta‘s Emily Lipman the next Kim Kardashian? The newly minted Bravo star certainly hopes so.

“I absolutely admire Kim. Hopefully Raw Denim will be just like DASH,” said the Atlanta native, who hopes her new reality series will mean increased business for her clothing boutique the way Keeping up With the Kardashians helped Kardashian and sisters Kourtney and Khloe expand their chain of retail stores. But unlike the Kardashians, Lipman prefers to run things on her own. “When I opened three years ago, I opened with a business partner and that turned to dirt.”

Raw Denim opened in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta in November 2010, but Lipman recently moved the store to the city’s Midtown area. “I designed everything myself. My style is absolutely in my store — west coast meets country rocker. I’m loud, I’m southern, but I like the West Coast look,” said the entrepreneur, who also plans to design under her own label. “I eventually want to create my own clothing line and sell it in my shop.”

Plenty of other Bravolebrities have set out to build a fashion empire, but while Lipman said she’s a big fan of shows like The Real Housewives of Orange County and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she’s quick to add that she’s not exactly modeling her business after those who have gone before her.  READ FULL STORY
