Runway Investigation


For those of you who watch Project Runway, you’ll probably be interested to hear that Jeffrey Sebelia, whose attitude and (lack of?) skills have drawn the ire of more than a few fashion loving homos, came under fire toward the end of filming.

It seems that fellow contestant Laura Bennett accussed Sebelia of cheating after his final collection came out looking a little to seamless. Tim Gunn (pictured), everyone’s favorite monotonous mentor, had traveled to Cali to check out Sebelia’s progress and found it a bit rough. His mother, in turn, told Bennett’s mother about Gunn’s statements. So, when Sebelia showed up with a polished collection, Bennett got a bit suspicious, leading to an investigation into Sebelia’s methods and possible manipulations.

New York Magazine‘s Jada Yuan writes:

…Bennett told the producers she believed Sebelia had outsourced his sewing—which would disqualify him. “His collection was very ambitious,” says Gunn. “I wasn’t born yesterday.” Adding fuel to the fire was Sebelia’s rather unfinished style of construction throughout the show. “We took the accusation very seriously, and we did a very intense and thorough investigation,” says Gunn.

Tim Gunn: Private Investigator? Hmmm, we smell spin-off gold!

    Get over yourselves. If you dont want spoilers, dont read the newspaper, read online headlines, watch tv. In fact, sit in a quiet dark room until the episode airs so it won’t get spoiled for you.
