"Project Runway" Video Game for Wii to Strut into Retail Stores on March 2, 2010
Season 6 Winner Along With Show's Key Celebrities And Contestants To Be Featured In The Game
NEW YORK, Dec. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Atari Inc., one of the world's most recognized brands, and The Weinstein Company, executive producers of the award-winning reality series "Project Runway", announced today that the initial video game based on the mega hit-TV program, will strut its way to retail on March 2, 2010, releasing within season seven of the program. The "Project Runway" video game will be released exclusively for the Wii(TM) system and is being developed by Tornado Studios.
A must have "accessory" for series fans, the "Project Runway" video game will put players in the role of aspiring fashion designer. Similar to the show, players will be presented with a range of theme challenges as they create designs and adorn models with hair, make-up and accessories. Players can then become the model and strut their creations down the runway using the Wii Balance Board(TM) accessory. Capturing the true essence of "Project Runway", the title will feature the show's key talent, Tim Gunn, Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors as well as the top eight contestants from Season 6, including reigning "Project Runway" winner, Irina Shabayeva.
"Project Runway" Season 6 winner Irina Shabayeva recently teamed up with "Models of the Runway" Season 1 winner Kalyn Hemphill to meet fans at Macy's Herald Square in New York City and show off Irina's holiday design for Macy's INC.

In case you couldn't tell, Irina's latest source of design inspiration are butterflies. From her garments to her bags and jewelry, Irina's newly revealed Spring 2010 lines are all about butterflies too. (Someone tell Mariah Carey already!)

"Project Runway" winner Irina Shabayeva thought she was done with challenges, but "Live! With Regis and Kelly" gave her a special one when she was announced as the winner of Season 6. Since the show is in Las Vegas this week, "Live!" asked Irina to design a wedding dress for Kelly Ripa as an homage to the dress Kelly never had when she eloped in Vegas. The dress was revealed on this morning's show:
Watch Kelly work it in the dress Irina had just three days (!) to complete:
Twitter was aflutter during the 2009 American Music Awards last night with one resounding question: No, not "Did you or didn't you catch J.Lo's dance-number tumble (ouch!)?", but "Was sassy country crooner Carrie Underwood wearing a Carol Hannah Whitfield design from her "Project Runway" Fashion Week collection during her performance of 'Cowboy Casanova'?"

So, was she or wasn't she? And who would be able to answer this question better than Carol Hannah herself, who received images of the singer's outfit from inquisitive fans: "I'm not sure whether to be happy and flattered or upset for being possibly copied — and rather poorly at that. Shorts???"
Perhaps Carrie's Carol Hannah–esque stage look was inspired by all those frequent-flier miles she racks up? Her design was recently featured in Sky magazine's blurb on New York Fashion Week:
