1. When did Project Runway become fashion Survivor? It can't be long until the teams start voting off the weakest link, right? 2. And why are the designers surprised to be staying in the same teams? Was it ever implied they'd be swapping members? 3. Why haven't these ping pong ball retrieving contraptions been marketed towards college students? Um, hello, beer pong... 4. Hold up! Joseph has a side career... screen printing cats onto sweaters? Dhani, are you aware of this?!

There are many good things you can say about Toronto in the fall. It’s crisp, vibrant, alive and gorgeous. Vanity Fair’s Nick Tosches once went looking for the very essence of Autumn and ended up finding it just next to the city. As for my own experience: the images above were all taken with my wee point-and-shoot, on my walk from my house to the tents at David Pecault square, where Toronto’s LG Fashion Week was centered. And even though the looks coming down the runways were timed for spring, these colors provided the perfect backdrop for a week of style. Read on to see some of the highlights from Toronto Fashion Week.
Between heightened security, including a row of cop cars lining Columbus Street in front of Lincoln Center, and moments of silence to remember lives lost, the 10 year anniversary of September 11 was clearly at the forefront of everyone’s mind today. The shows still went on, so we caught up with fashion insiders and show-goers to find out how they were commemorating and coping with the fated day. Here's how the fashion community and celebrities are responding to the tragedy: Fern Mallis: “The first year we moved shows to London because nobody could cope with it. I canceled everything after Liz Lange’s show and was running around the tents telling people they had to clear the venue and stop what they were doing and tell people what happened. After the first season or two, we realized you can’t not go on. They win if we all stop doing everything that we do." Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Lincoln Center’s Director of Fashion: “There was a moment of silence for each time the planes hit here at Lincoln Center and many designers have donated to the 9/11 fund. But it’s a big business for NYC so the show has to go on, but with vigilance and remembrance."
You might not have pegged John Leguizamo or Tumblr founder David Karp for models, but Uniqlo is bringing out their blue steel. Uniqlo's fall "Voices of New York" campaign, which drop this week, features Susan Sarandon, Laura Linney, John Leguizamo, Glee-star Darren Criss, Tumblr founder David Karp, and Esperanza Spalding (you know--the jazz singer who "stole" Bieber's Grammy), WWD is reporting. With two huge outposts opening in NYC on Fifth Avenue and 34th Street--traditional tourist hotspots--Uniqlo is expanding its "Made for All" philosophy with this super diverse cast.
V magazine hits newsstands with its new "Who Cares About Age?" issue, featuring three alternate cover icons of agelessness: Jane Fonda, 72, Susan Sarandon, 64, and Sigourney Weaver, 61. Fonda gets frisky in leopard print, Sarandon looks saucy with larger-than-life hair, and Weaver is playful in a baseball cap. "If you're upset with how you look at 25, life's going to be tough," Sarandon tells the magazine. Fonda adds: "'There's fabulous things about being older. The older people get, the less scared they are. All the studies show you're not as anxious." And they're not the only non-20-somethings celebrated in the issue.
