EW Exclusive!

We didn’t get a new episode yesterday night (boo!), but Runway is back next week with a BRAND NEW HOUR OF HIGH-FASHION TELEVISION! As we learned at the end of the last installment, the designers will be heading to a hardware store, where they’ll procure the materials that will determine who is IN and who is OUT. See the adorable picture (left) of the adorable Tim Gunn reminding the designers that one false placement of a decorative ball bearing or extension cord could determine their fate. Also: We have the scoop on the guest-judge situation. If you want more details, then follow me beyond the jump!


In fact, there will be two warm bodies joining Michael, Nina, and Heidi in the March 4th episode. And they are: Isabel Toledo, who designed Michelle Obama’s g-g-g-gorgeous inauguration day outfit, and Stephen Webster, a jewelry designer.

Here they are (right) chatting up the Holy Trinity. In this shot, I do believe they are all listening to Frau Used-to-be-Klum-but-now-is-legally-Samuels. What scintillating bits of verbal magic is she sharing with her colleagues at this moment? Tune in Thursday, friends!
