The Project Runway Season 12 Finale

  This is it, Project Runway fans! Last week, while we chatted with designer Alexander, Tim visited the contestants in their hometowns. The judges couldn’t decide who should go to Fashion Week – and Helen was ultimately sent packing for presenting a three-piece mini collection that wasn’t show-worthy. This week, the Final Four showed their […]

Introducing Alexander Pope. Broadway costume constructor. Project Runway Season 12 designer. And an elimination this season that came far too soon. Read on for our behind-the-scenes chat about the show, New York Fashion Week, and his upcoming mini collection. Rue La La: Tell us about being on the show. What was the workroom actually like? […]

Project Runway Gives Us Butterflies

  Hello again, Project Runway fans! I’m still heartbroken over last week’s double elimination, but I’ll try to keep it together. This week, the designers had two challenges – reasonable, considering this determines who moves on to the finale. The first was to create a daring avant-garde look inspired by a visit to a butterfly […]

Project Runway Gets Print-Happy

  Welcome back, Project Runway fans! Last week, the designers and styling team gave superfans head-to-toe makeovers. This week, the ever-recurring HP challenge had them creating their own prints, thanks to some inspiration from young entrepreneurs in various fields. The good: Dom’s bright, exotic print was the best of the night. Bradon’s dress and jacket […]

Project Runway Faces Reality

  Hey there, Project Runway fans! Last week, the designers transformed their models into Southern belles. This week, the challenge tested their ability to satisfy an everyday, non-model-sized client: the die-hard Runway watcher. The good: Helen has come a long way since Kate handed her her first win. Seeing Jamie’s transformation paired with that red-carpet […]

Project Runway Turns On the (Southern) Charm

  It’s Friday again, Project Runway fans! Last week was all about creating activewear for Heidi’s New Balance line. This week, the designers faced the Belk (of the Belk Accessories Wall) Challenge. Belk’s Executive VP of Private Brands, John Thomas, asked them to create a modern look for a Southern woman to be produced and […]

Project Runway Has a Field Day

  Hi again, Project Runway fans! Last week, the designers used the Marie Claire shoe closet as inspiration. This week, they battled each other in an obstacle course to earn an extra hour in the workroom, where they created activewear for Heidi Klum’s New Balance line, HKNB. Plus, Michael Kors returned as guest judge. Oh, […]

Project Runway’s Library of Shoes

  Happy Friday, Project Runway fans! Last week, the designers sent nature-inspired mini collections down the runway. This week, it was all about shoes – complete with a sketching session in the Marie Claire shoe closet. (Jealous.) Here’s how it went. The good: I loved Ken’s peplum minidress paired with lace-up heels, and the judges did, […]

Project Runway Goes Glamping

  Hey there, Project Runway fans! Last week, the designers teamed up to make mini collections with unconventional materials. This week, they went “glamping” – glamorous camping – for inspiration to create a nature-infused, high-end look. Here’s a peek at how things went. The good: Jeremy’s love letter–adorned, bias-cut gown had me wishing I could […]

Project Runway Drives It Home

  Good afternoon, Project Runway fans! Last week, the designers crafted with bow ties provided by Tie the Knot, a fashion charity in support of gay rights. This week, they formed four teams and drove Lexus sedans to pick up materials from a vintage wallpaper store, a supermarket, and a party-supply shop. The goal? Work […]

Project Runway Ties the Knot

  Hey there, Project Runway fans! Last week, everyone teamed up to create outfits from carnival-game prizes. This week, Modern Family actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson brought bow ties from his charity, Tie the Knot, for the designers to incorporate into their looks. (The goal of Tie the Knot? “To advocate for the civil rights of […]

Project Runway Takes It to the Boardwalk

  Hello again, Project Runway fans! Last week, the designers created outfits to pair with diamonds. This week, it was the first team challenge – and the fabric came from prizes won at Coney Island‘s boardwalk (read: straw sombreros and stuffed animals), making this the second unconventional-materials challenge in just three episodes. The good: My pick, […]

Project Runway Shines Bright (Like a Whole Bunch of Diamonds)

  Hi there, Project Runway fans! Last week, Season 12 opened with a fresh batch of designers and materials literally falling from the sky. This week, they were asked to create evening wear based around diamonds – over $30 million worth. That’s right. Thirty. Million. Dollars. Here’s how it went: The good: The designers showed us […]

Alexandra Ryan

Styling Director

Ten years ago, I launched a personal shopping business. It was my gateway to styling, from editorial shoots to film sets and, finally, e-commerce. I’m a tomboy at heart, so naturally I have a soft spot for the perfect grey fitted sweatshirt and a great pair of flats.

Style Blogger

By day, I’m an executive assistant at Rue. And by night, you’ll find me posting to my personal style blog, Cupcakes & Couture. I’m a lover of all things feminine and whimsical, I’m a collector of vintage designer handbags, and I’m constantly striving to achieve that effortless Parisian-chic look.

Beauty Director

As a born-and-bred New Yorker, I’ve been immersed in style my whole life. I learned the trade at Bloomingdale’s, then moved on to Saks Fifth Avenue, Burberry, and Ralph Lauren. Now, after more than 20 years in luxury retail, I head up Rue’s constantly growing beauty and shoe department.

Brianna Lapolla

Caroline Mauro

Senior Stylist

My first foray into styling was a stint in the wardrobe department on the show What Not to Wear. I often find inspiration in street style, with my personal look skewing on the sportswear and androgynous side. Head-to-toe black? I’m all about it. If you see me with a bright lip, be concerned.

Elizabeth Burns

Fashion Editor

My career started in personal shopping, where I worked with a global set of well-heeled clients to furnish their wardrobes and homes. That led me to the world of fashion editorial, first at Lucky and now at Rue. I’m a storyteller at heart, whether it’s curating an icon’s style or capturing trends. Outside the office, you’ll find me wandering the halls of the Met.

When it comes to my style aesthetic, I’m constantly inspired by things other than fashion (think old movies, the book I’m currently reading, and architecture). I dress for my mood, so it’s not unusual to see me in leather and Dr. Martens one day, and penny loafers and a cardigan the next.

For nearly a decade, I’ve worked in e-commerce telling style stories. The ones that stand out most? They go deeper than just trends. Think the history behind a Turkish rug or the craft that goes into a pair of Italian boots. That said – you won’t find me taking my own personal style too seriously. If it surprises and delights me, I’ll wear it.

John Camilleri

Creative Director

With more than 20 years in the fashion industry, I’ve worked on everything from mass-market brands to high-end advertising agencies. My kind of men’s style is all about refined simplicity – easy, accessible, and not overthought. Right now, I’m super excited about the all-American look and the iconic labels and personalities that bring it to life.

Kasey Rowe

Fashion Editor

I’ve spent the past few years translating street style, high fashion, and pop culture into shoppable experiences on Rue. At my core, I am a visual storyteller with a knack for finding low-ticket items that look expensive. In my free time, I obsess over all things home. My dream Saturday? Antiquing in the morning and trying a new recipe at night.

I’ve been a fashion editor for fifteen years, freelancing for publications including WWD, Teen Vogue, W, Marie Claire, Glamour, and Lucky. My love for the business extends into styling, too. I especially love vintage shopping and going to flea markets. Fun fact: I once ran a vintage booth on the weekends just for fun.

For more than five years, I’ve bounced between content and e-commerce roles – and I’m most excited when combining the two. I have a passion for uncovering stories, from the humble roots of iconic labels to the ever-growing clean beauty movement. Not surprisingly, I’m a sucker for stylish coffee table books.
