Glug, glug, glug. Yep, I’m still trying to drink my pain away over last night’s stupid evil moronic maddening ouster of Epperson on Project Runway. Luckily, Dalton Ross was game for a little imbibing as well. So this morning, we threw our very own Oktoberfest in his office. And just as we were filling our beer steins to the brim, who should pop by but the classy, gentlemanly, and (who knew?) funny Epperson. Check out what the terrifically talented designer had to say about his elimination, this season’s ridonkulous judging, and how he might have brought more of the catty, had he known that’s how Runway rolls. Prost!

You know that anyone who dares to play Survivor in high heels is a very special lady indeed. And Yasmin Giles is that lady. The outspoken hairstylist shows off her gift of gab in the latest edition of Survivor Talk. Special guest Stephen Fishbach (runner-up of Survivor: Tocantins) joins Josh Wolk and me as we grill Yasmin all about her absurdly bizarre motivational speech to the Foa Foa tribe, her curious strategy of doing absolutely nothing around camp, and, of course, her big post-challenge blow-up with Ben. Has she forgiven the outspoken bartender? And what was her time like with Ben in the Survivor: Samoa contestant quarters they were both sent to after being kicked out of the game? (One word — AWKWARD!) Click on the two-part video below to get the full scoop straight from the source.
I never thought I’d find myself watching QVC (except when Joel McHale pokes fun at it on The Soup), but there I was watching the shopping channel intently this afternoon to see Rachel Zoe, Hollwood stylist and star of Bravo’s The Rachel Zoe Project, unveil her accessories line.
Not surprisingly, the line is filled with signature RZ fabrics and styles — faux fur, faux leather, sequins, and plenty of statement jewelry.
Photos of some of the items leaked in early September, but seeing those pics was nothing compared to watching Zoe on TV just “dying” over everything. If it were anyone else hawking their products, I would’ve been turned off by the gushing, but Zoe is a proven fashion lover, so it seems more genuine.
Of all her creations, Zoe was most bananas over the jewelry. Some of the pieces are fun, but overall, it’s a lot of yellow gold and clinking that’s not really my thing. Though I have to say, I totally want the sequined knit beret in black — like the one she wears on the show, but much cheaper at $26! I once saw Zoe standing outside the Waverly Inn in New York City, wearing said beret, and it was fab-u-lous.
As for the rest of the line, which includes a lot of coats and scarves, I can only think of a few people who can pull off a faux-fur toggle coat with a wing collar, but clearly demand is beating supply, because many of the items have already sold out.
What do you guys think of the line? Did anyone else find themselves “stumbling” upon QVC to watch RZ?

Last night, NYC’s Radio City Music Hall played host to a screening of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring. Which would’ve been awesome enough by itself, given that Radio City is a fantastic place to see a film, and I haven’t seen Fellowship on a big screen since its initial 2001 release. But what made it super special was that Howard Shore’s score was performed, live, by a 300-person orchestra, along with a massive choir. READ FULL STORY
Check out some of the lovely ladies of Nine — Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz and Kate Hudson — on the cover of Vogue. Vogue also has Annie Leibovitz’s shot on the set — also with Judi Dench, Fergie and Sophia Loren. The film, directed by Chicago’s Rob Marshall, also stars Daniel Day-Lewis as a famous film director dealing with all these various women in his life. The film is based on the 1982 Broadway musical that was loosely based on Fellini’s 8 ½. Cotillard tells Vogue: “It’s been my dream to do an American musical. When I was a child, Annie was my favorite. I just never thought I would get to do it.” Hudson also sounds especially up for the challenge: “I spent most of my childhood singing and dancing and just never had the chance to do it professionally. So when I got the chance to work with Rob, I was so excited, I was out of my mind.” And Cruz reveals she and Hudson had some four-hour dinners living in the same apartment building during the shoot: “We are exercising so much we don’t feel guilty at all.”
If you think they look good here, just wait for the film – Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood tells Vogue that she made 350 costumes for the principals. As EW reported this week, Nine will now open in December. Think it will be worth the wait? Which of these actresses will steal the show?
