This season, Project Runway is offering up the original pieces shown in Bryant Park in an exclusive online auction at ProjectRunway.com. Items from the auf'ed final contestants, Jerell, Suede, and Joe, are currently up for auction while the pieces from the three finalists, Kenley, Leanne, and Korto, will post immediately following the season finale tonight at 7 p.m. PST.
The auctions from the three final contestants will last for one week. I like to swoop in on the bidding war during the last couple seconds, but do as you will. Too expensive for your taste? Nab a piece of America's favorite Project Runway host with your very own Tim Gunn Talking Bobble Head ($25) saying his popular catchphrase, "Carry on." Hilarious.
I already own a nice collection of cozy jackets, but when it's cheap like this La Redoute Faux Fur Jacket ($25, originally $60), I make a move. La Redoute just put up a nice selection of chill-busting coats and sweaters marked up to 75 percent off.
If faux fur isn't your thing, check out this amazing Wool Pea Coat ($40, originally $109). These savings won't last long — shop, shop!
I am. After six exciting and chaos-filled episodes, The Rachel Zoe Project has completed its first season. No word if it will come back again, but I sure hope it does. Between the drama between Taylor and Brad (Team Brad all the way), the cuteness between Rachel and Rodger, and all that high fashion, it was exhilarating from start to finish.
Seeing Rachel interact with fashion's darling designers — Marc Jacobs, Donna Karan, Michael Kors, Giles Mendel — gave her more credibility. Though the season came to a close with the Oscars, my favorite episodes were when Rachel attended New York Fashion Week. I thought my schedule was crazy, but Rachel beat me. Only, she had a driver. Lucky!

Lo Bosworth showed support for her friend Lauren Conrad in the front row at her fashion show. Lo was ever-so-chic in her two-toned black and white dress. Shop four similar options at varying prices here. Keep the rest of the look minimal, like Lo, with two silver bangles and a pair of satin peep toes.
After she debuted her Spring collection, Lauren Conrad walked the runway looking like a Grecian Goddess. She wore a dress from her own label paired with just a few accessories. In her wavy hair she rocked a simple-braided headband, and on her neck she opted for an elegant silver disc necklace. Shop Lauren's lovely look now.
Apparently, Eva Mendes is too sexy for America. A few months ago, Mendes's CK perfume ads were banned and now the actress's ads for Calvin Klein's new lingerie line have been considered too raunchy for television by censors in the US.
"I was surprised at the fuss because the ad I did is so typically Calvin, where it's really pushing the envelope. It's so tasteful," said Mendes. "You do see a bit of my breast revealed but it's so quick that I was like, "Oh, come on, guys!"
One would question why showing a little skin gets censored while blood and gore are seen across America's television screens on a regular basis . . .
