'Project Runway' exit interview: Eliminated designer on Helen's tears, and a stylish Kickstarter project

SPOILER ALERT: If you don’t want to know who was eliminated on the first episode of Project Runway season 12, stop reading now. 

The second episode of Project Runway season 12 was over-the-top with glamor and emotion. When the dust settled, it was the calm-spirited Kahindo Mateene who was sent packing.

The Congo-native took a risk with her fabric selection for the challenge — to create an ensemble that was worthy of wearing with diamonds and other precious gems — and the judges were underwhelmed by her understated cocktail dress. But this is not the last we will see of Mateene, who has multiple exciting fashion plans already in the works, both in New York and Chicago and internationally.

Mateene chatted with Entertainment Weekly about Timothy’s second strike out, Sandro’s entertaining shenanigans, and the Kickstarter-funded fashion project she’s planning to launch in the near future.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What was your initial reaction when Heidi announced the diamonds and evening wear challenge?
Kahindo Mateene: I was first a little nervous because I do not do a lot of evening wear. I typically do more day wear and ready-to-wear looks. But I was also excited because I got to try something that is a challenge for me and new to me.

What drew you to the diamonds and model that you chose?
The pieces were very classic and simple. The gold was a beautiful color to work with, and the necklace and earrings looked beautiful with the greens in the fabrics that I chose, and Jillian’s red hair.

If you could go back and make some design edits, what would those be now that you have heard the judges’ critiques? READ FULL STORY

'Anna Nicole' costume designer on re-creating Smith's iconic looks and working around Agnes Bruckner's prosthetic breasts

Five years after her death, Anna Nicole Smith (née Vickie Lynn Hogan) is getting the Lifetime treatment. Agnes Bruckner stars as Smith in Anna Nicole, the rags-to-riches tale of “a pretty, but plain girl growing up in small town Texas” who “transformed herself though sheer willpower” into a pseudo-celebrity whose demise was a tragic end to a tragic story.

Costume designer Deborah Everton (whose credits include The Craft, Star Trek: First Contact, and Dick) was tasked with outfitting Bruckner — and her pneumatic prosthetics — in a wardrobe befitting Anna Nicole. Everton sat down with EW to explain how she re-created Smith’s signature looks, describe the challenges of dressing the Playboy model’s Amazonian figure, and dispel the myth that the Guess Girl was a Wal-Mart shopper.

“I wanted her wardrobe to be fun for the audience to look at. I didn’t want to exploit people’s expectations,” Everton says of using costumes to bring levity to the otherwise heavy biopic. “I showed her progression as she learned about style and fashion. There was a time when she came into money and wasn’t educated yet as to what was tasteful and beautiful. Her look tended to be, I don’t want to say gaudy, but ‘more is more.’ She learned over the course of her brief life how to edit [her clothes], so that’s what I did.”

Who makes a better Jackie Kennedy: Ginnifer Goodwin or Katie Holmes? -- POLL

National Geographic Channel has released the first picture Ginnifer Goodwin as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy on the set of Killing Kennedy, currently in production in Richmond, Va. Based on the best-selling book by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, the two-hour drama — scheduled to air in November — chronicles the final years of President Kennedy and his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald.

Earlier this month, Rob Lowe who portrays President John F. Kennedy in the film, tweeted, “Just saw Ginnifer Goodwin as Jackie Kennedy in the sad and awful blood-stained dress. Extremely emotional.”

The Once Upon a Time actress isn’t the first star to channel the famous First Lady. READ FULL STORY

Gretchen Rossi plugs her beauty and fashion lines on 'The Real Housewives of Orange County'

Is Gretchen Rossi the next Bethenny Frankel?

In addition to the Mexican strippers and Vicki’s bed wetting accident, last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County featured plenty of products from Rossi’s Gretchen Christine fashion and beauty brand. In addition to the variety of bags from her eponymous line, the pneumatic blonde surprised the group with gift bags containing lip gloss, sunless tanning spray, and other items from her cosmetics collection.

“I wonder if there’s any Gretchen Christine products in there,” Vicki said sarcastically to the camera when the scene cut to her in a one-on-one interview. “Yes, there is.”

Now comes news that Rossi will appear in a commercial for a skincare product called Inance Retinol 1%. The move is a cross-promotional opportunity for the reality star — customers will receive a free pair of Gretchen Christine false eyelashes with the purchase of the anti-aging serum.

By now, fans of RHOC are certainly familiar with Rossi’s growing brand, which, in addition to handbags and cosmetics, also includes hair products, T-shirts, and bedazzled accessories like dog collars, aprons, and baby booties.

In a market oversaturated by reality star brands, just how well is Rossi’s collection selling? READ FULL STORY
