Project Runway? Not so much

WARNING: A tiny bit of fit-throwing follows. If you have a low tolerance for whining (even when it's justified), skip to the bottom!

I would post a pic of the "Project Runway" show from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, but oh wait, that's right, I didn't get a seat. Seriously.

I've taken most of my missed shows in stride this week (if you skip a season, as the Observer did in September, there's a good chance of falling off publicists' radar), but I don't know if it was the cumulative lack of sleep or the coffee-only breakfast or the fact that it's day eight of Fashion Week, but my "PR" snub stung -- bad.

Especially when I saw hordes of other people being ushered in, with no apparent tie to the show other than being well-connected. Cry me a river, right? Poor Rachel!

To console myself, I hoofed it down to Macy's at Herald Square and picked up two dresses -- DKNY and Stephen Burrows -- on super clearance, around 75 percent off. Shopping and bargains? The "Runway" hateration has magically disappeared!

I did get some details of the "Runway" show from a handful of colleagues who did get in: Victoria Beckham was the guest judge and a ton of NBC/Bravo stars were on hand. Click on the "Project Runway" hyperlink above to read more about the show. Also, click here for a slideshow.

Tonight, Sean John and Marc Jacobs. Should be interesting to say the least!

  1. You talk about falling off the publicist's radar by missing the September shows, but Project Runway didn't have a show at fall Fashion Week. Um....
