Christian Siriano has been rubbing elbows with celebrities on the West Coast, but he's finally back in New York.

Fugs on the ‘Project Runway’ Finale: Talented, Qualified Contestants Are ... Boring

After Christian Siriano was crowned the fiercest designer in the land on Project Runway’s fourth-season finale, we felt happy but slightly empty. Not because we didn’t think he deserved the win, but because we hadn’t gotten our dramatic fill. There was no fighting. No abject horror. Not even a whiff of impropriety.

Tim Gunn claims that he wasn't allowed to reference Project Runway in his book for fear of being sued by publisher (and Runway co-producer) Weinstein & Co. MTA chairman Peter Kalikow's $1 million Ferrari sustained $32,000 in damage in transit from Zurich to New York last may. James Gandolfini says we should "shit or get off the pot" regarding Iraq, and wants to reinstate the draft. Some designers are angry that Ralph Lauren is hoarding models for his Saturday show.
