Korto Momolu’s Project Runway Challenge + My Fashion Crush
Project Runway favorite Korto Momolu has signed on to appear on the 2009 All-Star Challenge. (Feels Good 2 B Home gave Korto praise for her keen fashion sense!) The Season 5 runner-up also has a new handbag line at Dillard’s that debuts this upcoming January.
Entertainment Weekly caught up with Korto to talk about her PR gig.
Though she was initially hesitant about being away from her five-year-old daughter again, last season’s runner-up eventually decided to jump right back in to the sewing room. And when she arrived, she was thrilled to meet cycle 3’s Uli Herzner, with whom she shares a passion for bold prints. ”I love her work,” says Momolu, whose handbag line debuts at Dillard’s in January. Even more exciting? Returning to Runway without the controversial Kenley Collins. ”I didn’t want that negativity. We all decided: We’re gonna have a blast; may the best person win.”[EW]
Joining Korto are previous Project Runway fan favorite personalities Sweet P, Chris March, Jeffrey Sebelia, Mychael Knight, Uli Herzner, Daniel Vosovic, and Santino Rice. Each contestant stands a chance to win a $100,000 cash prize. (Sweet!)
Heidi Klum’s hit reality series made the move from BRAVO to Lifetime. For those die-hard fans, you’ll be happy to know that cast mates Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, and Tim Gunn returned as well as a certain Disney alum.
I’m definitely tuning to see the fun designs Korto has up her sleeve. The show has its Lifetime debut on Thursday August 20th. UPDATE: CLICK HERE FOR THE WINNER OF PROJECT RUNWAY ALL-STAR PROJECT!
