Christian Siriano is having an amazing career as a fashion designer, with numerous A-list celebs choosing to wear his creations on the red carpet, but the Project Runway Season 4 victor is returning to his roots in reality television with a new gig judging a fashion competition show. Threads is a reality TV show that follows contestants as they compete to win challenges given to them, but what makes this show different from other fashion competition programs is that the contestants are teens and tweens. Siriano will join Seventeen magazine's fashion director Gina Kelly and accessories editor Jasmine Snow, and YouTube style expert Ingrid Nilsinwith on the judges' panel, with Vanessa Simmons hosting. "Each week, three new contestants pull out their scissors, sketchbooks and skills to see who can out-design the competition and set the new standard for the future of fashion," according to The Hollywood Reporter. But here's what we're most excited about: the grand prize package, worth $25,000, includes a scholarship to FIDM! We simply cannot wait to watch this one!
Olivia Palermo has been photographed countless times wearing Westward Leaning shades, so it was really just a matter of time before the blogger/model/fashion maven collaborated with the sunglass brand, which launched in '12. Palermo helped design eight new exclusive frames, each featuring muted gold reflective lenses and named after her favorite destinations, including Berlin, Saint Germain, and Palm Beach. Ten dollars from the sale of each pair, all of which are available now on OliviaPalermo.com and WestwardLeaning.com, will be donated to ADCAM's Massai Project, Palermo's favorite cause. When asked about the perfect sunglasses, Palermo said they should be "well made, [have] a great shape, and go with everything." We've no doubt the OP x WL collection of shades meet the criteria.
