This week's "Project Runway" on Lifetime challenged the Top Five designers to create an Unconventional Design--as well as one in real fabrics--inspired by a trip to Austin Texas. I was very honored to have been part of this episode as part of the Best Western Challenge announcement along with the very dapper Tim Gunn...

Here are some fun Behind-the-Scenes Photos from my time shooting the scene for Season 15 "Project Runway" with Tim Gunn--as well as the fab Best Western Plus Austin City Hotel location. Just so you know, it was about 110 Degrees hot--and VERY VERY HUMID, while we were filming. So much so, that while I may look all "put together" here, my entire shirt was DRENCHED, in humid sweat...But Thank Goodness for that jacket: It hid it all!

This past week, I had the pleasure of attending The Actors Fund 2016 "The Looking Ahead Awards" at the Taglyan Cultural Complex in Hollywood. The "Looking Ahead Awards" is an annual fundraising gala that occurs every December to raise support and awareness for the Looking Ahead program services for the young performer community. I have always been a big supporter of The Actors Fund and so I was very humbled to be invited to this annual fundraising event.

BEST WESTERN.....Go. Get. Glam. Contest: Winner #1: BLOG, VIDEO, SKETCH

Lindsay Travel Good to Glam--Sketch by Nick Verreos--Best Western Go. Get.Glam. Contest

CONGRATULATIONS to the first Winner of the Best Western Go. Get. Glam. Contest: Lindsay Pike Evans! Several weeks ago, Best Western Hotels and Resorts ran a contest looking for people who wanted to have their "Travel Style" taken to another level...by me! We asked people on social media to submit photos using the hashtag #FlauntYourBWStyle showing us their own personal "travel style" and how they wanted it elevated to a more stylish level! Along with Best Western, I chose the top three best submissions and the winners received a $100 Best Western gift card, a $100 MasterCard and personalized fashion ideas from ME! Soooo...here's our first winner: Lindsay:
Before...and After: Travel Stylish via Nick Verreos--Best Western Go. Get. Glam. Contest Winner Lindsay and Nick Verreos' Travel Style Fashion Sketch

BEST WESTERN Go. Get. Glam.

Along with her fun and colorful photo (loved the pink bags in the background!), Lindsay stated several things that were important to her while traveling in regards to travel style: Comfort is key, and especially for business, it still needs to be stylish but cool enough that upon arrival at her destination, she doesn’t feel “all gross and sweaty”…yet warm enough that she “doesn’t freeze”. These are all great considerations and prerequisites when thinking of a Travel Outfit that also works well for Business upon arrival.

There are so many times when you have to travel, then arrive at your destination and subsequently, go straight to a meeting and/or an event. I stopped counting all the times I had to go right to hosting an event or an important fashion meeting after flying so I had to be very thoughtful that my travel outfit could serve me well on many levels.  A well thought-out travel outfit can multitask. And this look I have styled for Lindsay is a perfect blend of comfort, style, and business meeting appropriate (and possibly dinner and drinks later!).

The main theme of my style sketch for Lindsay was making her fun yet sophisticated and on-trend…but comfortable too.

FASHION SCHOOL WITH NICK.....Draping A Basic Pencil Skirt

FASHION SCHOOL WITH NICK.....Draping A Basic Pencil Skirt

 Fashion School With Nick Verreos: How to Drape a Basic Pencil Skirt

Next on my "Fashion School With Nick Verreos" YouTube Videos, I wanted to teach young and old(er) fashion draping aficionados a fun way to Drape a Basic Pencil Skirt. The pencil skirt is a very popular item in a stylish woman's wardrobe so here's a way to drape one. This approach, in particular, is a bit more "modern" than the way they would teach you in actual fashion schools, because I show you how to do it with one dart in the front and one dart in the back--as opposed to the "old school" two-darted front and back method.

PROJECT RUNWAY.....My TOP 5 OMG MOMENTS: Ep. 11

Nick Verreos breaks it down on "Top 5 OMG Moments of Project Runway" Episode 11, YouTube

This last week's episode of Lifetime's Season 15 "Project Runway", the remaining six designers got to design a garment that was supposed to be Avant-garde using Unconventional Materials (metals and machinery) , as well as Conventional ones (textiles and notions from Mood). For my latest "Top 5 OMG Moments" video of "Project Runway", I explain how everyone--from Heidi, Tim to the Lexus guy-- told the designers to "GO BOLD!" Unfortunately, it still wasn't enough and they somehow missed the "Avant-garde" directive...

Click below to watch my Top 5 OMG Moments of "Project Runway" Episode 11 on YouTube:


So...here we go:
 #1....OMG! Go BOLD or Go HOME! OK...So even before Tim announced this week's Challenge, Heidi greeted the designers and told them that they needed to be BOLD and that their designs should STAND OUT. Then, the Lexus guy says that his company's automobiles are BOLD, right before Tim tells the designers to GO BOLD for this Challenge. If that wasn't BOLD enough, Tim announces that it will not only be Avant-garde but also, an Unconventional Materials Challenge...

HELLOOOO DESIGNERS!!! RED FLAG!!! You better be ready to GO BOLD!!!

 #2....OMG! Uh Oh. This is BOLD??? When we see the designs in the workroom as Tim gives his Critiques, Rik is doing a Cocktail Dress. We then switch to Laurence, who's doing a....Cocktail Dress! Then, it's time for Roberi and guess what he's creating? A Cocktail Dress.

Not to be outdone, Cornelius and Mah-jing join the bunch with....You guessed it! Cocktail Dresses!!! Sooooo....This is an Avant-garde Challenge....Right??

#3....OMG! I Have a Bone to Pick. It really took all of my self control not to hurl my bowl of popcorn at the TV screen when the judges started their critiques. Heidi somehow thought it was a positive that several of these so-called Avant-garde designs could be worn on the Red Carpet. I'm starting to wonder if Heidi's life is one big long Red Carpet, because she can't imagine any garment functioning in society, unless it's walking down one! Let me ESSSPLAIN to you and Miss Klum the following: Avant-garde is NOT meant for the Red Carpet--unless your Bjork or Lady Gaga (and even Miss Gaga has stopped that!). This is NOT the function of these garments. Avant-garde is meant to disrupt, provoke and illicit conversation, it is meant to inspire and dream. It's the closest FASHION has to "Modern Art". While it seems that some of the designers had questions regarding what Avant-garde was (Mah-jing especially), it seems that the judges had little clue as well.

#4....OMG! The Winner is...ERIN? Honestly, if I was a judge, I don't even know who I would have picked. And certainly not because there was a plethora of fab designs to chose from. But....I'm assuming Erin secured the WIN by being the BOLDEST?? And most Avant-garde?? I will say that, at least I give her points for using color. I guess that counts for something?? Sooooo....Congrats to Erin for getting the Win and being back on top!

#5....OMG! What Happened??? While I understand that the competition is stressful and the pressure of the Finale looms ever closer, it's imperative to realize that the Avant-garde Challenge is THE moment to express yourself and really WOW the judges with not only your ability to step outside the design box, but also a chance to marvel them with your technical prowess. In other words I wanted to see a COAT that SPANS THE LENGTH OF THE RUNWAY! Made out of CHICKEN WIRE! And...make it COUTUUUUURE! I'm starting to  worry that these designers don't have the ability to Wow the judges , or for that matter, us. Let's hope they can prove me wrong and end the season with a BANG!

And now, here's my FULL RECAP on MyLifetime.com for Episode 11: "Didn't You Hear? I Said Bold!"

Now that we have moved on from overindulging on turkey, pie and cyber shopping, it’s time to get back to more important matters: “Project Runway”! This week’s episode tried to merge the avant-garde with the unconventional as well as conventional. With all that, it had the prospect of design gold! Instead, we got aluminum, copper and a wire mesh mess. Time to recap!


Heidi greets the designers by telling them that there are only two challenges left (mon Dieu!). She then cryptically says that they better “buckle up because it’s going to be a thrill of a ride.” Before sending them off to meet Tim, she warns, “You better be BOLD and make sure your designs really STAND OUT. Go BIG or you’ll be going home.”
