Tensions ran high at Project Runway’s third-season launch party at Buddha Bar last Tuesday. Season-two finalist Daniel Vosovic was avoiding Runway “mentor” and Parsons’ fashion-design chief Timothy Gunn, who’d told the Chicago Tribune that Vosovic is a “terrible diva” and chastised him for turning down a job with Michael Kors. “That came completely out of left field, and some of it was just blatant lies,” Vosovic complained. “Michael Kors didn’t offer me a job.” Gunn says, “Michael portrays it differently. My impression was that Daniel wasn’t offered the job he wanted.” Vosovic said that he sent Gunn an e-mail saying, “I don’t know what I’ve done to you. I thought we were friends,” but Gunn says he never received it. Still, Vosovic said he had planned to approach Gunn at the party and say, “Hey, I’m around if you want to talk later,” but he didn’t. “The only time I saw Daniel at the party,” says Gunn, “was when I was sent into his red-carpet photo shoot to be with him and he gave me that ‘Die, scum, die!’ look.” (Vosovic e-mailed post-party to say they made up later.)
