The Best Project Runway Final Collections That Didn’t Make It on TV

prmain

When it comes to Project Runway, there’s so much fans don’t get to see. During each season’s finale, three to four designers present collections to the judges, but what viewers don’t know is that there are additional decoy collections presented at New York Fashion Week. Over the course of 12 seasons, as the show has grown in popularity, more and more designers present collections on the runway to throw off fans and media trying to predict that season’s finalists. In the most recent seasons, at least nine or 10 designers have walked the runway. While most collections were not deserving of being in the finale, there were some standouts. We scoured the past 12 seasons of unseen clothes — season 13 presented nine collections but it’s unclear which will make it to the finale — to bring round up the best runways not seen on TV.

There’s no denying the fact that online streaming platforms are the thing of now. Unrestrained by the finite schedules of broadcast, streaming networks, such as Netflix, are offering fans the opportunity to watch old (and original) programming on their TV, computers, or phones. Thanks to the success of Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards and the hype surrounding upcoming series, The Cosmopolitans and Transparent, Netflix and Amazon Prime are getting a lot of attention while Hulu has quietly ramped up its offerings — making it one platform everyone needs to get on board with.

FX Says They Are Fearless — And We Believe Them

american-horror-story-asylum-jessica-lange copy

When FX — stylized as fX to suggest effects — was first launched in 1994 it was definitely a risk. The channel was built around live programming meant to create an interactive viewing experience tapping into the early days of the Internet. It was certainly bold. It was definitely original. But it didn’t last long.

Fans were definitely saddened by the news of Joan Rivers’ death following a week in a medically induced coma and stay in Intensive Care. The comedian and actress had a long career of cracking jokes, making people laugh, and sometimes making people cringe. While many younger fans mainly remember Rivers for her work on the red carpet at the Academy Awards or as a style critic and host of E!’s Fashion Police, the comedian also spent a lot of time doing standup and even appeared in several cult classic comedies.

antmjudges

With the return of America’s Next Top Model, we are revisiting our favorite moments, including all the winning photo shoots, from the first 20 cycles of the series. While we ranked the cycles according to Tyra Banks’ hair, we didn’t take into account of all the judges that have served on the show’s panel. Since they’ve helped Tyra decide who would become America’s next great fashion hope, it’s important to examine all 13 of them.

Every Cycle of America’s Next Top Model Ranked According to Tyra’s Hair

View Photo Gallery

After 20 cycles of tears, hair, and Tyra mail, America’s Next Top Model is showing no signs of slowing down. The show is returning with cycle 21 — the second competition featuring guys and girls premieres on Monday, Aug. 18 — and promises to deliver everything we love about the show. Of course the main draw is Tyra Banks herself.

A fierce supermodel in her own right, she has always made sure that she is the star of the series. And in order to be on top, she has to always model from “H to T.” But she hasn’t always gotten the “H” part right. Tyra can certainly smize but her hair hasn’t always given her reason to. With that in mind, we decided to rank every cycle of the series according to the model’s signature hairstyles.

Your Favorite Female Pop Stars’ Worst Big Screen Debuts

debutslead

When it comes to music, these girls have it all. They can sing. They can dance. And they can act — err, wait a minute on the last one. Sadly, a powerful voice, a magnetic personality in interviews, or killer dance moves in music videos doesn’t mean a pop star has what it takes to be an actress. With practice, some do get better. But if their big screen debuts are any precursor, some of them better stick to their main gig and leave the acting to the professionals.

Check out the 10 worst big screen debuts from your favorite female pop stars, including Britney Spears, Rihanna, and Taylor Swift. (Oh yeah, the latter is making her return to the big screen in The Giver, co-starring Meryl Streep, in theaters this weekend.)
