"Project Runway": Karlie Kloss Not Returning As Full-Time Host for Season 19 of Fashion Competition Show

She has served as host since it moved from Lifetime to Bravo in 2019.

by Anonymousreply 8520 hours ago

She is having (or just had?) a baby so she probably wants time off. She is married to a rich man, so she can sit back and chill with her baby.

End this show please.

Is it even coming back?

by Anonymousreply 3Last Wednesday at 3:00 PM

She doesn't want to be on a tv show doing tons of press when the indictments start dropping on her in-laws.

Probably for the best.

What a shame. She added so much to the show.

I liked her. She was fine.

I’m glad Christian is coming back.

by Anonymousreply 7Last Wednesday at 3:10 PM

I thought she was decent enough. Don't care for the Kushners, even though she's married to the nice one.

by Anonymousreply 8Last Wednesday at 3:13 PM

She actually did better than I thought she would as host, but I am fine with her being replaced.

However let's point out the last winner of Project Runway, Geoffrey Mac, just used the fame to start an Onlyfans and now makes his living whoring on the net.

by Anonymousreply 9Last Wednesday at 3:39 PM

I'm surprised Geoffrey is still alive. I thought he was one panic attack away from killing himself. Was it withdrawal symptoms (drugs or alcohol?) that made him sweat more than any of his competitors? The only time I liked him was when he was queening out over Cyndi Lauper. I found that quite relatable.

Paulina Porizkova always comes across as relatively fun with a lot of personality in interviews.

They need someone like her to offset the other judges and Siriano - someone with an opinion point of view that doesn't come across as pissy.

Not shocked.

Heidi > Karli > Alyssa

It's a fashion show and poor Alyssa would make her dramatic walk out...often looking a mess.

R11, that's a good suggestion. I was also wondering how Iman would do as a host.

R3, it says in the article that production on the new season begins this spring in NYC.

R14 - Iman hosted the Canadian version a few years back, and she was great. Loved her.

The first season of Project Runway Canada is a good season.

R19, not yet.

I LOVE the idea of both Paulina and Iman!

Karlie left me cold. I love Christian, but you need some balance. I hope he grows into his role more as he gets older. Though really, he's too famous in the design world now for this gig, but glad he's taken it on.

I wish Tim Gunn would defect from whatever he's doing with Heidi. I miss him. Is anyone even watching their version of this show?

Um we need a trans woman of color. Paging LaVerne Cox.

They should hire Alexa Chung, who was co-host of Netflix's Next in Fashion before it was cancelled. I thought she was marvelous on that show and was a much better host than both Kloss and Klum.

Yeah, I wonder if he and Heidi made a mistake going off on their own. It seems their version barely got any notice.

What about Rachel Zoe?

by Anonymousreply 35Last Wednesday at 6:11 PM

I would MUCH rather have seasoned women who have worked in the business as models (and/ordesigners) and were highly acclaimed in their day, than watch some dried up raisin "stylist" like Rachel Zoe who, at her age, still speaks with a ridiculous Valley Girl vocal fry. She has done nothing notable to speak of, so let's not.

I'm more than qualified to be the host, since I have a considerable relationship with fashion.

It was cancelled? Aw, I liked it. And she was quite fun in the show's comic relief bits.

by Anonymousreply 38Last Wednesday at 9:42 PM

Siriano has certainly come a long way since his initial competition season. Remember when he got stuck creating a prom dress for the little heavy teen? He about shit when he realized he had to make something for a short, unattractive girl, plus she gave him loads of crap over what she wanted v what he created. The look of disdain on his pinched little face! The dress he made was too short in the back and had ruffles as I recall - someone please correct me if this is wrong - It was hideous. He should have been eliminated for it but I suspect politics played a part in his dodging that bullet. He was just too interesting and well-liked by viewers to be kicked off. How very different things could have turned out for him had he been booted that day.

Don't get me wrong... he is talented, I enjoy watching him and am happy for his success.

r39. Nowadays, he's the go-to guy for big, "curvy" celebrities who can't get a single semi-famous celebrity to send them a red carpet gown.

Even if he had been booted, I think he still would've achieved the same level of success. Too much talent and determination.

R40 Yes, hasn't that been a turn of events!

by Anonymousreply 42Last Wednesday at 10:07 PM

I have to admit I am kind of scared that a Jenner, Hadid, one of the Baldwin twats, or a Kardashian is going to be hired as a host based on social media following. I mean, are there any "good" supermodels left to be the pretty supermodel host?

I fear Project Runway will turn into Doctor Who where the fans rip the current host to shreds and demand for the previous one to come back (who was ripped to shreds back then, too).

Christian is a poor substitute for Tim. He’s surprisingly dull and doesn’t seem interested in the designers. Brad Goreski is fun. I’d love to see him on the show.

by Anonymousreply 45Last Thursday at 5:41 AM

They'll probably hire Ashley Graham. She's been a guest judge several times, and she's plus size.

by Anonymousreply 46Last Thursday at 6:38 AM

PR has the ability to induce amnesia to its viewers within weeks of the finale. I had to Google the guy you all were talking about. Didn’t like his win, was rooting for the older woman, Nancy.

Heidi and Tim’s new show was better in that they had a more international group and an international location and they didn’t rely on the designers sewing (neither did In The Cut) but Heidi and Tim were acting very strange. It was weird.

by Anonymousreply 47Last Thursday at 7:26 AM

The one with Heidi and Tim had the biggest prize money, but then Amazon (aka Jeff Bezos) can afford it. Including hiring Naomi Campell as judge.

Personally I liked Next In Fashion the best. It felt fun and fresh. Found out in this thread that it was cancelled. Bummer.

by Anonymousreply 48Last Thursday at 7:38 AM

[quote]Christian is a poor substitute for Tim. He’s surprisingly dull and doesn’t seem interested in the designers.

Tim was becoming too interested in the designers, which was becoming a problem. He became overly interested in a couple of male designers and became belligerent towards them when they didn't reciprocate or ignored his advice. The Indian designer comes to mind.

by Anonymousreply 49Last Thursday at 8:15 AM

He’s not supposed to show interest in the designers as people.

That loses objectivity. He only sees what they’re trying to create and give feedback.

by Anonymousreply 50Last Thursday at 8:53 AM

“Next in Fashion” not “In the Cut” @ r47. I could never remember the name. Has it definitely been cancelled or just on hiatus due to Corona?

by Anonymousreply 51Last Thursday at 9:05 AM

Yes, Next in Fashion was officially cancelled by Netflix. I loved the show, but Netflix will cancel a show if it costs too much to produce and doesn't bring in enough viewers. The caliber of designers on Next in Fashion was miles above the Etsy-level designers that appear on Project Runway.

Being I really liked Tim Gunn, I was disappointed that Christian Siriano replaced him as a mentor. Christian was a pleasant surprise...I don't know why the initial disappointment, but he was very good and cool with the contestants. I like him as the mentor, also.

I want a show where you have to cook a dish and while it's cooking, design fashions to wear during the dinner you're serving the dish.

Will there ever be another crop of models as gorgeous as the ‘90s ones? Fuck these bland volleyball player “models”. Kendall. Gigi. Bella. Just a pack of nose jobbed basic cunts.

by Anonymousreply 55Last Thursday at 11:11 AM

Of all the current crop, Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid are probably the closest to the old school models of yesteryear like Linda Evangelista or Christy Turlington or Helena Christiansen.

by Anonymousreply 56Last Thursday at 11:18 AM

If Christian decides to quit the show, I would like to see Diane von Furstenberg in the mentor position. She's fabulous, good with people--direct, but gentle, has a sense of humor, been in the design world forever, has a great eye for fabrics, and I love her.

I do love Christian. Not only has he become the go to designer for big or challenging to fit women, (and actually makes them look good), he will often comp or deeply discount for women just starting out in the business and don't yet have the dough for designer gowns. Basically, he works on a sliding scale. He's a good egg. I will always love him for calling some disastrous look a "hot tranny mess". Oy vey, if he said that today.... (I would love him even MORE)

by Anonymousreply 57Last Thursday at 1:22 PM

I wasn't sure about Christian as a mentor, replacing Tim, but I have a lot more respect for Christian after his first two seasons as mentor. Before, I dismissed him as being childish and immature and his talent was wasted on him. But he really seems to be good and smart about what he's doing. I think the edit of his advice being good (and ignoring his advice meant you were at the bottom and more likely to be eliminated) helped in that regard.

by Anonymousreply 58Last Thursday at 2:09 PM

The reboot is a snooze. I like Christian but even he is made boring by this show. Karlie was a non-starter.

I'm sure they'll replace Karlie with a POC TIk Tok star because, well, 2021. Yay, I'll stick with streaming and leave Bravo to y'all.

Christian actually knows what he's talking about. Tim didn't have a clue half the time and the designers stopped taking his advice towards the end of his run on the show.

I agree. Their interactions were forced, cutesy and they were trying to act spontaneous and carefree but couldn’t pull it off. And I like them both.

Their designers were very good.

Christian is great and I find him very entertaining.

Now that it's back on BRAVO, one of my beloved "BRAVO-lebrities" will replace Karlie!

Maybe Betthany? Or Carole? Or another former Real Housewife? Those gals eat and sleep fashion!

I wonder if Heidi and Tim had a falling out but had to fake it for the cameras?

Do many people really watch content like this on Amazon? I will if it is a movie, or an add-on channel like Paramount Plus is, but I've never been a fan of their original offerings. In fact I can only think of a couple and they were both shit. Amazon seemed like a strange choice. I guess they were the highest bidder, but I would think Netflix or even Hulu would have been a much better move.

If we were going to have a man, I nominate Violet Chachki/Jason Dardo. She's walked both as a male and female model, AND she can sew. She could host half the show in drag, and half out of it. Or not.

Actually she would be a great, though harsh judge. Bitch is fucking relentless in her critiques which makes it even more fun. She can be a bit self serious, but most of these hosts and judges are.

LOL. Zendaya is doing big movies and critical acclaimed premium cable TV shows. Hosting PR would be a serious downgrade for her at this point. Apart from being so demand that she couldn't fit even a single season in her schedule. Maybe as a guest judge, but not as permanent host. She was a guest judge on the one-season Tim Gunn's spin-off Under The Gunn, btw.
