Project Runway.

What I love about Project Runway is the way it deconstructs how clothes are made, how fashion comes about, and that??s very close to Marie Claire cut. We are thrilled to be a part of Project Runway and the official magazine concept because A, it??s fantastic show, B, Nina Garcia, our fashion director, is the permanent judge, but C, it??s a great reality show and that it takes a bunch of really talented people and shows them working hard to produce a really great finish product.

We are here to celebrate the return of Project Runway, and to view tonight??s episode.

It??s really like a mini reunion. I think it??s so exciting.

It??s really fun to kinda get out and celebrate a little bit.

I??m excited. I??m [unknown] a fun episode for all of us.

It??s amazing.

What I love about Project Runway is the way it deconstructs how clothes are made, how fashion comes about, and that??s very close to Marie Claire??s cut. And we love watching how fashion comes together.

This season has been so, so talented. So, I was really privileged, you know, to be a part of this experience. The experience was a part of that. It??s great.

I loved it. I mean, I will not exchange it for the world.

It was fantastic. It was really good to work with the designers, you know, they??re talented, they??re great, and it was fun to do it in LA. It??s fascinating of course, watching young designers really striving to show that authentic voice. Tim Gunn??s genius mentoring skills as people under pressure and under deadlines are striving to do their best. And of course Michael Kors is very clever insightful remarks that I think keeps the designers true to what their vision is, and it??s a brilliant priceless show. We love Tim Gunn and Heidi, they really add something to it, and I think want to get sometimes when you pick up a dress or an item of clothing and [unknown] amount better and work that??s gone into it.

Hi, [unknown]. My job is to welcome you all, and my name is Joanna Coles. I??m the editor of Marie Claire, and we have quills to be the [unknown] for Project Runway. The CEO and the President of Lifetime, please give it up for Andrea Wong.

Hello. Thank you, and thank you everyone at Marie Claire. I also want to physically thank Cathie Black and everyone at Hearst for hosting this wonderful evening. First of all, we have an incredible team [unknown] of the runway both in [unknown] and [unknown]. It starts with Nina Garcia and Tim. Nina, thank you. Also Nina on the show.

I??m such a fan of Project Runway, I love it.

One of the most popular features in the magazine is called Beauty Snoop and it??s where we go and grab the beauty bag of a famous celebrity, to try and get advice really from them. And so, for our beauty issue in October, we are fighting ??cause we??re doing in large Beauty Snoop.

We decided to go into the makeup beds and the train cases and our favorite stylists. To really get a scoop on what insiders are using. Some other people that are creating the looks that are on the celebrity, so yeah, we have that.

We talk to Tina Turnbow who??s the makeup artist, who talked about what she travels with and how those products translate for her clients as well as for herself.

I??m either doing early, early morning like for today??s show. Getting up at 5, or evening events when they go out to the red carpet, or a premiere.

She??s always on the go. She needs to carry all of her makeup with her, but what is the essential thing?

Really great skin care, I love Baby Wipes by Seventh Generation. I feel like ti??s the most gentle and efficient way of getting makeup off.

You know, has a great tip which is that you should use a [unknown] kohl pencil as they??re kind of flashy color on the inside of your eyes to make it look fresh and bright.

Great concealer, I love Benefit Erase Paste. I have a MAC Palette which have beautiful colors, jewel tones and vibrant colors and then I have another palette that I also keep on my earthy kind of natural colors.

One of the people I interviewed was Brook Siler, he??s a Pilates expert based in New York. She was trained by one of Joseph Pilate??s proteges.

So, usually throughout the day, I??m doing many different things. So, I run from being a mom, down to my studio, I??m a teacher, then I??m maybe off to do something [unknown]. And so I really do have to pack a large bag filled with just anything that I might need. I love mineral makeup, the Suki is my new favorite type of makeup. Lipgloss, I use from Bigelow. I do like to carry a face wipes with me, something that help keeps-- it just kinda helps, makes me feel cleaner.

We have Andy Lecompte, the hairstylist.

Andy Lecompte who-- when I interviewed him, was actually on tour with Madonna. Mary [unknown] has beauty boutique in LA.

We have Natala Villanueva, told us about her travel kit and what she brings with her on an airplane, she??s always jet setting around the world from amazing gig to amazing place.

Natalia, which is all about how to travel and keep comfortable and you know, as a top model, she??s flying from country to country. She may lose a night sleep, she has to get off the other end and look fabulous and ready for a photo shoot.

Everything that really makes her comfortable on travel.

Do you really feel like you??re getting real advice? It??s not just some company saying buy outfit ??cause it will make you feel better, it??s tried and tested by people who know what they??re talking about.

If someone already has dry skin, the changing weather going from warm into colder can exacerbate the drying. So, I recommend to people to change their bathing and moisturizing habit as we get into the colder months. Short, warm showers. Try to eliminate long baths or if you have to, just do one long bath a week to give yourself a treat. Use a product that says that it??s moisturizing for dry skin. Sometimes lotions are just not enough for moisturizing the skin. So when you get into the shower, use a moisturizing body wash to give you that extra plus at moisturizing your skin. You come out of the shower, apply the moisturizer on damp skin. This is very, very okay. There are some wonderful moisturizing washes that you can use in the shower that are balanced in such a way so that it doesn??t strip or extract the moisture. The new product by Dove is very, very effective. It has a botanical ingredient which is gentle and it deeply moisturizes, so that your skin is well-moisturized and feel healthy. What I like about the Dove Nutrium product is, first of all, most importantly, they work. They??re cosmetically elegant when you use them on the skin. They moisturize, they??re well tolerated across the board by all skin types. Dove is a respected name and it works.

Ever worn your clothes in the shower? If you??re using other moisturizing body washes, you might as well be. You see, there are moisturizers that??s on top of skin almost as if you??re wearing it. Only new Dove Deep Moisture has Nutrium Moisture, a breakthrough formula with natural moisturizers that can nourish deep down. It??s the most effective natural nourishment ever. New Dove Deep Moisture with Nutrium Moisture. Superior Natural Nourishment for your skin.

I did a collaboration for this spring with one of my best friends that I grow up with, Shoshanna Cruz and so we just launched up for spring summer and where it worked-- it was spent really well, and it was a lot of great, like kind of bohemian, little dainty florals and no, because floral is a little more bohemian e-cut, prints and we??re gonna wait-- we??re gonna do a new collection coming out for this coming spring. So, it??s always fun to be able to work with one of your best friends and you know, we get to design together.
