Ladies Of London - Season 1

Introduce yourself in 5 words or less.
Fashion entrepreneur, TV presenter, and friend

What should Bravo TV fans expect from the rest of the Ladies of London season?
In the last two episodes, my personal life gets more ‘stable’ which helps with the stress viewers are seeing me go through in the beginning part of the season. As a group, one particular riff comes to a head in a rather big way, and then there is a very unfortunate accident.

Ladies Of London - Season 1

What makes you a Lady of London?
In a superficial way it’s being part of certain social circles of London and being seen as aspirational and glamorous. In another way, it’s being able to hold yourself in certain situations with some degree of manners.

How does the London modeling business differ from the one in America?
The look here is much more edgy and androgynous. It’s also quite competitive in this market.

Describe each of the Ladies using just one word:
Caprice Bourret: Driven
Marissa Hermer: Gracious
Julie Montagu: Kind
Annabelle Neilson: Confident
Caroline Stanbury: Ambitious

How do you define sexy?
Self-assurance. Also I think it’s much sexier when a woman leaves a bit to the imagination.

What’s the sexiest City? Hotel? Club? Current Fashion Model?
Miami, Chateau Marmont in LA, Kate Upton

Looking back at your Ladies of London experience, is there anything you would do differently?
Yes, a lot. I should have been more outspoken about the reality of my life with Scot. It was presented like Scot has money and I’m with him for this. It’s never mentioned that I pay half the rent, all the bills, and pick up the check when we go out! This has been very hard for me to take.

Also, I would have tried to relax more. I do a lot of TV presenting but reality is a totally different world and I found it hard to be my fun, relaxed self. A big learning process it is.

Ladies Of London - Season 1

What’s next for Noelle Reno?
Currently I’m consulting for two retail companies in addition to moving in to development on a project I’ve had going for over a year. I can’t wait til I can talk about it. Oh, I’m also doing my travel blog for The Huffington Post and about to start a lifestyle blog for Hello magazine!

What are your three simple luxuries?
Making time for the gym as it keeps me healthy. One day a month in the Akasha Spa at Cafe Royal in London as it keep me sane. Getting my hair and eyebrows done at Neville’s salon as it keeps me looking decent.

Project Runway’s Dom Streater is In for the Win!

dom streater project runway 4_raannt

The moment for the Project Runway finale is almost among us and our favorites are still in the top.  Among them is the amazing Dom Streater, who has captivated us week after week with her bold prints and use of color.  We were super excited to find out a little bit more about the humble lady with an eye on the prize.

1. Define your design aesthetic in one sentence.

Edgy city girl chic with a soft spot for color and prints!

2. What have been your most enjoyable and most difficult challenges so far and why?

My most enjoyable challenge by far was the HP Print challenge. It was such a huge pleasure being able to FINALLY create my own prints and show the judges, “Hey this is who I am as a designer guys!, through and through!!!!.”

My most difficult challenge was the Parachute challenge, simply because it was the first challenge and it was such a shell shock having to create garments in that amount of time. But once you get used to the rhythm and craziness of the competition the rest becomes a piece of cake!

3. Who is your toughest competition?

My toughest competition, I’ve felt from the beginning, is Helen. She has such a great taste when it comes to modern design. She really hits the nail on the head for that super modern woman that looks for great new pieces. I’m always impressed with what she creates.

4. Who are your three favorite designers of all time?

I have always loved both Lanvin and Acne, because even though they both have such minimalist designs, I love all the risks they take with new shapes and still be able to make a woman look sexy and modern. I also love Mary McFadden because she embraces color and pattern so much and is truly an inspiration for me.

5. Give one adjective for each of the following:

Heidi Klum: silly

Zac Posen: charming

Nina Garcia: honest

Tim Gunn: protective

Project Runway’s Helen Castillo Talks Modern Couture

helen castillo project runway 3_raannt

Our first thoughts of Helen Castillo, the feisty designer from Season 12 of Project Runway, were that she like black, black…oh and more black.  We also thought she might be somewhat bitchy and probably not one of our season picks for fan favorite, but as the season has progressed, we’ve been pleasantly surprised.  Not only has Helen knocked out amazing designs time and time again, but she has greatly improved since the beginning of the show and she doesn’t seem like a bitch at all.  In fact, she has become one of our top favorites for the season.  We were lucky enough to chat with her and find out a little bit about the woman behind the mystery!  

helen castillo project runway 2_raannt 

1.  Define your design aesthetic in one sentence. 

My aesthetic is modern couture; by taking classic techniques and merging them with silhouettes that are classic, wearable, and beautiful.

2. What have been your most enjoyable and most difficult challenges so far and why?

My most enjoyable challenge so far has been the Marie Claire shoe challenge, I chose a shoe I would wear and that inspired me on a tenfold, which lead to my success this challenge. My most difficult challenge was sadly the Diamond Challenge, I overestimated my time limit and attempted something I’ve never done before and it almost had my ‘auf’d.’

3. Who is your toughest competition?

My toughest competition would have to be Brandon, I don’t necessarily know what his aesthetic is, but he takes direction with challenges very well and always serves the business.

4. Who are your three favorite designers of all time?

My three favorite designers of all time are Cristobal Balenciaga, Christian Dior, and Riccardo Tisci.
