Karlie Kloss and New ‘Project Runway’ Judges on the Show’s Kinder, Gentler Reboot

When “Project Runway” launched in 2004, it pulled back the curtain on the fashion industry, made Michael Kors a household name, and elevated the role of designer into the pop culture pantheon. Running for 16 seasons with guest judges including Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ciara, the show introduced such memorable moments as the Gristedes challenge and the Thunder From Down Under challenge. And it gave millions of wannabes dreams of making it like Christian Siriano, the biggest success story among the winners.
After a nearly two-year hiatus, the show returns on March 14 to Bravo for its 17th season, reimagined for now. New host, model Karlie Kloss, who is also executive producer, is joined by a new mentor (Siriano) in the Tim Gunn role, and three regular judges — Elle magazine editor in chief Nina Garcia, a veteran of the show’s earlier iteration; former Teen Vogue editor Elaine Welteroth, and designer Brandon Maxwell.
The 17 designers competing have a range of experience, and hail from all over the world, including one contestant who is a Syrian refugee, and others who are from India and Samoa. The show will put a new emphasis on inclusion, featuring models of all races

Karlie Kloss In Yellowface And Expecting More From Our Allies

In the past five years, grassroots activism has defined citizen unrest and resistance towards government, politicians, and the police. The Trump presidency era adds a layer of political and activist urgency, ensuring that every part of culture become political. It seems that brands, Hollywood institutions, and other previously apolitical institutions are now part of a national dialogue about race, inequality, and marginalization.

One of the most visible advocates for visibility, particularly for girls and women in tech is Karlie Kloss, a supermodel and self-proclaimed techy with “nerdy passions.” Her brand as a liaison and entrepreneur who seamlessly lives and breathes the culture of tech and fashion has expanded to include partnerships that promote women who innovate with Elle UK, Flatiron School, and more.

To the shock of many (and not so much to others), Kloss recently came under fire for posing in Yellowface in Vogue’s Diversity issue. In the photo series, Kloss poses in traditional Japanese kimonos, bath houses, and scenery, while the few Asian actors in the shoot (in the form of a sumo wrestler and a server) serve as props to highlight and celebrate Kloss’s figure as a celebration of Japanese culture.

Cultural appropriation disguised under the clichéd catch-all phrase of “diversity” has a long standing history in this country. It is bigger than the Yellowface we see in the forthcoming Vogue issue. It is part of a greater conversation that needs to be had about white women and white culture taking wrongful ownership of women of color’s past and current sorrows, celebrations, and victories. Even Kloss’s personal brand push to be the face of the women and girls in tech movement and being the poster child for opportunity and accessibility is one that is not rightfully hers. By promoting herself as a champion of the girls in tech movement, she wrongfully capitalizes and owns the accomplishments of girls and women who faced insurmountable hurdles to achieve in a male-dominated field.

Kloss’s latest gaffe in Vogue’s issue highlights one of the biggest Catch-22s in cultural and civil rights movements, like the one our country is currently experiencing: white allies who take part of a movement that demands equal representation and respected existence of people of color and marginalized communities. Allies who demand space in discourse and dialogue, but are unwilling to be held accountable towards their own actions that fuel and stand with the same institutions and historical culture of repression. The series of Women’s Marches across the nation sparked dialogues on white feminism and speculations about the motivations behind a March that demanded marchers be “women first.”

It is critical that allies do a better job in understanding the differences between what it means to be an ally who understands the struggles and victories of minorities without robbing groups of their cultures, victories and struggles.

This type of pressure to unite as a singular identity echoes the same appropriative dialogue used during the Women’s Suffrage movement in both the USA and the UK. Philosophy Professor Elizabeth Spelman notes in her 1997 book Fruits of Sorrow: Framing Our Attention to Suffering, that phrases such as “women and minorities” overshadow and remove the identity and experiences of minority women and take these experiences to work towards the motivations of white women. Spelman asks her readers, “Consider the talk about women being treated like slaves. Whenever we talk that way we are not only making clear that the ‘women’ we’re referring to aren’t themselves slaves; we’re making it impossible to talk about how the women who weren’t slaves treated those who were.” Spelman implores us to critically examine the politics of the words we use to describe our experiences. The wording and metaphors we use have the potential to not only silence the underrepresented and disenfranchised, but also removes accountability from the relationship that the “women” being referenced have with the oppressed and underrepresented.

It is critical that allies do a better job in understanding the differences between what it means to be an ally who understands the struggles and victories of minorities and people of color without overstepping and robbing groups of their cultures, victories, and struggles. The very fact that the Vogue and Kloss teams came to the conclusion that having a white woman representing Japanese culture in its diversity issue shows that mainstream media still struggles in its role as an ally. Within hours of the photos being released, Kloss issued an apology for participating in the Vogue photoshoot that appropriated Japanese culture.

However, as several days have passed since the controversy, Vogue has still yet to release an apology, making it clear that diversity, not inclusivity, is a priority simply in its potential to profit and erase centuries of oppression and silenced voices. Vogue’s silence further fuels a long standing history of fashion and its reluctance to open doors and make room for stories that demand conversations about its relationship to people of color, minority women, LGBTQ, immigrant, and all underrepresented communities. As the country continues to mobilize and people of all backgrounds stand up, resist, and define themselves as allies of marginalized communities, it will be all the more critical for everyone to critically examine what it means to be an ally without silencing the individuals that dared to demand more for their communities, children, and future.

15 Style Icons Who Prove Flats Are Fab: From Audrey Hepburn to Karlie Kloss

Next time you’re thinking of reaching for a pair of heels, consider opting for flats instead. Style icons including Coco Chanel and Karlie Kloss have been choosing party-worthy ballerinas, loafers, and slippers over stilettos for years. Take a look at these for inspiration.

Coco Chanel‘s simple elegance still resonates today—her classic take on ladylike dressing remains much unchanged. One accessory the designer popularized? Ballet flats—which prove shoes don’t have to have a high heel to make a woman look her chicest.

Actress-turned-princess Grace Kelly made comfort look elegant when she opted for flats over heels. Though espadrilles remained a favorite style of Kelly’s, she certainly slipped into her fair share of skimmers!

Katharine Hepburn was one of the first to popularize the still-modern-and-fresh borrowed-from-the-boys style we now love so dearly. Hepburn adopted the menswear trend right down to her flat-soled oxford lace-ups.

Fresh-faced Audrey Hepburn was known to have her ballet flats custom-made by Salvatore Ferragamo. A classically-trained ballerina, Hepburn brought the youthful style into the spotlight, paired with everything from black pixie pants to midi skirts.

The youth movement of the 1960s brought with it the minidresses and flats still popular today. One of the decade’s biggest models, Twiggy, often stepped out onto the London scene wearing ballet flats or Mary Janes.

Fun fact: it’s Brigitte Bardot who is credited with popularizing Repetto—growing the brand from a technical dance shoe company to one that also makes everyday footwear. Trained as a ballerina, Bardot requested the ballet slipper with a city sole—ease and elegance rolled into one.

Before, during, and after JFK’s time in office, all eyes were on Jackie, as she effortlessly donned everything from ball gowns to flared jeans. It was through her zeal for ballerinas and loafers, though, that she showed the world flats can be just as elegant as heels.

A lover of ballet flats in every color, Princess Diana is credited with popularizing the British company French Sole (after buying 12 pairs in one fell swoop.) A fashion icon, Diana often chose to pair dresses and skirts with flat shoes instead of heels.

Lauren Hutton‘s masculine-meets-feminine style means she’s often spotted wearing pants, blazers, or suiting and sneakers and flats.

2011-GettyImages-118144332Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt is the epitome of casual, cool French-girl fashion. Even in black jeans and a crisp button-down shirt, Alt makes flats look chicer than any stiletto heels.

Olivia Palermo has been known to pair everything from miniskirts to midi dresses, wool trousers to denim shorts with shoes of the flat variety. Take a cue from Palermo and opt for styles more festive in design, with an unexpected element or texture.

Fashion editor Giovanna Battaglia shows off her legs by pairing fun and flirty minidresses with flats of all varieties. She has been known to sport everything from menswear oxfords and smoking slippers to girly ballet fats and pointed-toe slingbacks.

If there’s one girl who opts for flats over heels for most occasions, it’s Alexa Chung. A fan of Charlotte Olympia cat flats, there are few parties too fancy for Chung’s feline feet.

Petite as the pair may be, Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen prove that you don’t need sky-high heels to look elegant at a party. Whether it’s Coco Chanel’s favorite cap-toe ballet skimmers or elongated masculine slip-ons, the right pairs of flats are always party-ready!

Standing at almost a foot taller than the design duo, Karlie Kloss opts for elegant flats on the red carpet, gown and all. With the shoes’ pointed shape and metallic sheen, the model is ready to dance the night away while remaining graceful and festive.

Hey, Tall Girls: Karlie Kloss’s $49 Crop Top Is Designed Specifically for You

If you’re a proud member of the Tall Girl Club, your list of most pressing fashion gripes probably reads something like this: Long sleeves on the hanger turn into 3/4-length sleeves on your arms, knee-length hemlines can wind up being downright mini, maxi dresses are never quite maxi enough, and what’s supposed to be cropped—pants, culottes, or even a top—never winds up looking quite right. If any of that sounds familiar, help is on the way—thanks to model-slash-tall-person Karlie Kloss.


The supermodel was snapped on her way into Taylor Swift’s apartment this week wearing an adorable off-the-shoulder crop top from the latest TTYA x Long Tall Sally capsule collection. Ringing in at $ 49, this crop top, along with the rest of the collection, is specifically designed for women who are 5’8″ and taller, offering up pieces that are proportioned for those with longer limbs.

Long Tall Sally’s collaboration with British designer label Taller Than Your Average, first launched back in October and returns this season with a ton of summer must-haves.
