On Friday we learned Nina Garcia got the boot from Elle. It was unclear why, but numerous tipsters reported it didn't look like she left of her own accord. Now that we reporters and bloggers have had the weekend to bring our jaws back to our faces, we can get down to business of figuring out a key issue surrounding her departure: What will happen to Project Runway? Fashion Week Daily reports Elle offered Garcia a position as editor-at-large or contributing editor. This would enable Garcia to appear on another season of Project Runway — the last running on Bravo before its move to Lifetime — for which Elle is still committed. So she could stay on board in a figurehead position. But Garcia may not need Elle or Project Runway to keep her star shining, according to Mediabistro:
[Garcia]'s reportedly talking with Harvey Weinstein and Bravo about new television projects. And interestingly, says our spy, Garcia could still be involved with the next season of Project Runway regardless of how things play out with Elle. She and fellow judge Michael Kors have reportedly not yet signed on for the next cycle.
With rumors of tensions between her and the magazine's new creative director, Joe Zee, swirling for months, it might be easier for her to make a clean break, ego in tow. Considering Elle's next reality television venture is Perfect Fit (in which young ones compete for a spot as a fashion assistant at the magazine with Tyra Banks and Zee breathing down their necks), Elle's image seems to be taking a turn and it doesn't sound like it's heading to a very classy neighborhood. So Godspeed, Nina. Please, whatever you do, just avoid any reality-TV ventures with Tyra Banks.
