From the Mailbox

First, here is a link to Tim Gunn's commentary on the Oscar Fashions - thanks Wendie!

Next, Just Jared has a Project Runway article including lots of great photos from behind-the-scenes. Thanks, Miss Noel and Miss AJ.

Now, is anyone in the market for Maternity Wear? Two of Heidi's dresses are up for Auction at the Bravo site.

After reading your comments on the Donny Deutsch Show last night it seems that I'm the only one who liked it! Praddicted suggests that the title should be "The Big Disappointment With Donny Deutsch." Also, there is general agreement that Donny probably doesn't watch the show. Also, he didn't seem to be aware of the content of the clips. Next year, just ask us for questions, Donny!

As an interesting update, his on-line poll shows Daniel V gaining on Santino. Right now, Daniel has 40% and Santino has 42%.

I've also been thinking about the dresses that we saw on Donny's show last night. Chloe's dress for instance was made way back in June, right? And "sydney8" won it on December 14th. Yet, TPTB still have it - in March! How long does it take to receive your goods from Bravo I wonder. Do you have to wait until the season is over? Do they just hold onto the winning designs a little longer? Anybody know? Obviously whoever won Raymundo's Barbie lost no time in posting it to eBay. Hmmmmm..... Ideas?

Hi Marion,

Yes, Chloe's collection is beautiful. Many here have commented that she is generally "ahead of the curve" with her nod to volume. Tim compared her to Balenciaga, after all! Chloe's designs have been consistently excellent all season. She is professional and lovely in every way. Of course she is a contender.

I didn't mention her standing in the poll because it really hasn't changed much since yesterday. Of course, this vote has no influence on the outcome. (That has already been determined.)

Don't forget that there are supposed to be some poll questions in the show tomorrow night, too!

Hey, Laura, thanks for saying that-I wondered why those dresses were still around when they had been won a while ago. Couldn't quite figure it out. I thought Nina looked rockin'-I'm going to try to check out where the big H&M is in relation to our BPR trip and see if I can sneak in a visit-I love her style.
