Madonna Alleges Harvey Weinstein Crossed 'Boundaries' with Her: He Was 'Sexually Flirtatious'

Madonna Alleges Harvey Weinstein Crossed 'Boundaries' with Her: He Was 'Sexually Flirtatious'
Madonna is opening up about her experience with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

In a new interview with the New York Times Magazine, published on Wednesday, the pop star, 60, described her experience working with the Weinstein-owned company Miramax on her 1991 documentary Truth or Dare.

“Harvey crossed lines and boundaries and was incredibly sexually flirtatious and forward with me when we were working together; he was married at the time, and I certainly wasn’t interested,” Madonna said of the disgraced movie mogul, 67.

The musician joins a list of more than 100 other women, including actresses Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd,

‘Project Runway All Stars’ finale recap: Do you think the right designer won in ‘All the World’s a Runway’?

‘Project Runway All Stars’ finale recap: Do you think the right designer won in ‘All the World’s a Runway’?
“It’s anybody’s game,” said Dmitry Sholokhov at the beginning of the “Project Runway All Stars” season finale. He had won the show twice before and was going for an unprecedented three-peat, but this season of “All Stars” featured nothing but past champions, so he was up against fellow Us winners Michelle Lesniak and Irina Shabayeva as well as Canadian “Runway” victor Evan Biddell. Who was named the “Runway” world champion at the end of the night?

The episode got off to an exciting start with the announcement of the final challenge. After weeks of unique, innovative and highly specific design tasks that ran the gamut from airplane materials to Willy Wonka inventions, the designers had no rules at all for their finale collections. Their mission was to take four days and a $3,000 budget to create six-look collections inspired by whatever theme they wanted. Essentially, their design objective could

Project Runway All Stars Finale Recap: The First-Ever 'World Champion' Is...
After narrowly escaping elimination last week, Project Runway All Stars‘ final four designers — Evan Biddell, Irina Shabayeva, Michelle Lesniak and Dmitry Sholokhov — faced off Wednesday for the newly minted titled of “World Champion.”

This time around, the designers were given more freedom than ever, challenged with creating a six-look collection in four days with a budget of $3,000. “The specific theme can be whatever you want,” host Alyssa Milano revealed, which seemed to please everyone. Let’s see how this all panned out…

‘Project Runway All Stars’ twist: What did you think of the surprise elimination decision right before the finale? [Poll]
In the world of fashion, one day you’re in and the next you’re out. Unless you’re on “Project Runway All Stars,” in which case you’re just in. At the end of “Modern Families,” the penultimate episode of season seven, the judges had to decide which designer to eliminate before sending the final three to next week’s season finale. But they ultimately decided not to decide. Instead, they made the unorthodox choice to send all four of them to the finale. What did you think of that twist? Scroll down to vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.

Michelle Lesniak, Evan Biddell, Irina Shabayeva and Dmitry Sholokhov were all feeling the pressure. For the Canadian Biddell, advancing to the finale meant getting an opportunity to present an entire collection for the first time to the American “Runway” audience. For Lesniak it meant redemption

Project Runway All Stars Recap: Which Designers Are Heading to the Finale?
With only two episodes left this season, Wednesday’s Project Runway All Stars presented the remaining four designers with their greatest challenge yet — and not everyone rose to the occasion.

“Recently, what constitutes a family has been debated in society; families now come in all shapes and sizes,” Alyssa Milano told the group before explaining this week’s “family” challenge: “You will each be creating outfits for three members of a modern family. Your designs must be cohesive, because each of your families will take a portrait photo together, and that family portrait will be revealed to everyone on the runway.

Anthony Ryan Auld was eliminated from ‘Project Runway All Stars,’ and I am Not here for it [Poll]

Anthony Ryan Auld was eliminated from ‘Project Runway All Stars,’ and I am Not here for it [Poll]
The judges on “Project Runway All Stars” sure are unforgiving. The two designers on the chopping block at the end of “Nina Says Don’t Cry Over Spilt Silk” were Anthony Ryan Auld and Michelle Lesniak, the only two designers who had won two previous design challenges (Lesniak just won her second last week). It was Auld who ended up exiting the competition after a challenge he tearfully struggled with, but I don’t think he really deserved to go. He was one of the best designers of the season, and maybe I’m in the minority but I thought he was one of the better designers of the night too. Do you agree? Scroll down to vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.

Auld’s heart wasn’t really in this week’s challenge, which was to design a gown for a royal ball with luxurious silk.

Was this Dmitry Sholokhov’s worst week ever on ‘Project Runway All Stars’? Judges dissed his ‘Martian’ look in ‘All-Inclusive’

Was this Dmitry Sholokhov’s worst week ever on ‘Project Runway All Stars’? Judges dissed his ‘Martian’ look in ‘All-Inclusive’
As Heidi Klum used to say on “Project Runway,” “In fashion, one day you’re in, and the next you’re out” … unless you’re Dmitry Sholokhov. The bulletproof designer, who won both “Runway” season 10 and “All Stars” season 4, has looked just as indomitable in “All Stars” season 7, which brought together an entire cast of past champions from around the world. He won the very first challenge of the season and has been safe every week since. But in “All-Inclusive” he found himself in uncharted territory: the bottom two! My hot take is that the judges’ criticisms were overdue.

“All-Inclusive” challenged the designers to create gender-neutral street-wear looks for various male, female, and non-binary models. Sholokhov’s primary inspiration was a trench coat with a crisscross in the front and an open back, all in a silver metallic fabric. Judge Georgina Chapman praised him for his “flawless,” “polished” clothes, but

Sean Kelly’s ‘Wall Street leather bar’ look went bankrupt on ‘Project Runway All Stars,’ but did he deserve to go? [Poll]

  • Gold Derby
Sean Kelly just couldn’t get it together on “Project Runway All Stars.” He won the red carpet design challenge in “Pedal to the Metal,” but that turned out to be a rare triumph for him. He was plagued by inconsistency, and he ended up with more low scores than anyone else this season so far. This week, in “All-Inclusive,” he landed in the judges’ bottom three for the fifth time, and that was the last straw. Scroll down to vote in our poll to let us know if you thought he deserved his fate.

As a male “Project Runway” fan,” the “All-Inclusive” challenge was my favorite of the season so far since it required the designers to create gender-neutral street-wear looks for variety of male, female and gender-nonconforming models — at last I could judge the designers by whether I would be caught dead in their looks! Kelly’s idea

Did Cynthia Hayashi really deserve to be eliminated on ‘Project Runway All Stars’ for that ‘frumpy’ vest? [Poll]

Did Cynthia Hayashi really deserve to be eliminated on ‘Project Runway All Stars’ for that ‘frumpy’ vest? [Poll]
Cynthia Hayashi just couldn’t get it together on “Project Runway All Stars.” A winner of the Brazilian version of the fashion series, she never distinguished herself to the judges in this country. She got a low score in the season premiere. And then she narrowly escaped elimination in “Of Corsets Fashion.” The panelists liked her well enough to advance her safely through the competition every other week, but she never once got a high score, so when she disappointed them again in “Penneys from Heaven,” it was clearly the last straw. Did she really deserve to be eliminated? Scroll down to vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.

This week’s challenge tasked the designers with taking three daytime separates from JCPenney and transforming them into one cohesive evening look. Hayashi was working with printed shorts and a blue cotton blouse that she turned into an

Project Runway All Stars Recap: Whose 'Hackneyed' Look Just Couldn't Cut It?
You know the right designer was sent home when their only defense is: “I really don’t think that my outfit today was that bad.” (Oh, but it was. It really was.)

Wednesday’s episode of Project Runway All Stars sent the season’s remaining eight designers to Jc Penney to “shop for three different daytime separates and transform them into one sensational nighttime look.” Unfortunately, two of those elements — specifically “sensational” and “nighttime” — were missing from Cynthia Hayashi‘s final presentation.

“The vest is a little frumpy,” guest judge Vanessa Williams said in her critiques. “It’s a little matronly.

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Anthony Ryan Auld showed his ‘Imagination’ and achieved something no one else has this season
In the first six weeks of competition on “Project Runway All Stars” there had been six different design challenge winners — no repeats. That finally changed in the lucky seventh week. Or at least, it was lucky for Anthony Ryan Auld, who won the “Pure Imagination” avant garde challenge. That made him the first contestant to win two challenges. Did he deserve his repeat victory? Scroll down to vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.

This challenge, inspired by “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,” was to create a never-before-seen fashion invention that would be incorporated into their looks. Auld’s idea was a coat that would aid in communication: a wearable dry-erase board. The ever-supportive Dmitry Sholokhov wondered what the point of such an invention was in a world full of smartphones, but the judges didn’t share his grumpy assessment.

‘Project Runway All Stars’ recap: Come with me and you’ll be in an avant garde challenge of ‘Pure Imagination’ [Updating Live Blog]
“What we’ll see will defy explanation.” Those lyrics from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” couldn’t have been more fitting on “Project Runway All Stars.” In episode seven, “Pure Imagination,” the designers embarked on this season’s avant garde challenge. So who got the judges’ golden ticket, and who was booted from this factory tour? Scroll down for our live blog with all the minute-by-minute developments as they happen.

The avant garde challenge has always been an opportunity for designers to let their freak flags fly, but they had better fly high, especially this season. In the first six weeks of the competition the judges saw some wild, unflattering designs, but they have often been harder on contestants who created bland, uninspired looks (like Juli Grbac) than those who took big swings and missed (like three-time low-scorer Django Steenbakker). And when it comes to avant garde fashion, there’s nothing worse than boring.

‘Project Runway All Stars’ elimination predictions (week 7): Finally time for Django to go?

‘Project Runway All Stars’ elimination predictions (week 7): Finally time for Django to go?
Django Steenbakker may be down, but he’s not out … yet. The “Project Runway All Stars” designer has gotten low scores from the judges for the last three weeks in a row, but he hasn’t even been in the bottom two yet, let alone eliminated. However, he hasn’t been safe since week three, and he hasn’t gotten a single high score from the judges yet. Will he finally have a breakthrough tonight in week seven, or will the judges finally cut him loose? Our readers think he’ll finally be eliminated — but we’ve been wrong before.

Steenbakker gets leading odds of 41/20 of being sent home from the show in ninth place, but if there’s one thing that might keep him in the competition for a while longer, it might be his bold choices. When he’s been near the bottom of the design heap he

‘Project Runway All Stars’: Anya Ayoung-Chee’s straitjacket chic was Not red carpet ready in ‘Pedal to the Metal’
Anya Ayoung-Chee warned us in the season premiere of ‘Project Runway All Stars” that sewing wasn’t her strong suit. She was almost eliminated from the show on that very first challenge. But then she seemed to get along just fine, earning safe scores from the judges every week thereafter … until now. In episode six, “Pedal to the Metal,” the rubber finally met the road and she couldn’t drape her way out of it, even with ample assistance from her fellow designers. Did she really deserve to go? Scroll down to vote in our poll at the bottom of this post.

Ayoung-Chee’s strength was in flowing looks, so she knew she was in trouble as soon as the challenge was announced: to create a red carpet look with metallic fabric. The problem was that a metallic fabric wouldn’t work with her usual aesthetic, so it exposed her biggest weakness as a designer.

Project Runway All Stars Recap: Whose Metal Design Got Them Scrapped?

Project Runway All Stars Recap: Whose Metal Design Got Them Scrapped?
A metal-themed challenge on Wednesday’s episode of Project Runway All Stars took one designer a little too far out of her element. The remaining 10 contestants were instructed to create an “elegant red carpet carpet look using metallics,” one that also includes a “unique texture.”

For the most part, the designers seemed pretty confident going into this challenge — perhaps too confident. Michelle Lesniak, who prides herself on her work with metallics, was the first to brag, declaring this the “sparkle dazzle challenge.” Irina Shabayeva, meanwhile, gave us a full rundown of the stars she’s dressed on red carpets: Carrie Underwood,

Is ‘Project Runway’ dynamo Dmitry Sholokhov overrated, underrated or as good as the judges’ hype? [Poll]

Is ‘Project Runway’ dynamo Dmitry Sholokhov overrated, underrated or as good as the judges’ hype? [Poll]
To paraphrase a common sentiment, I don’t know much about fashion, but I know what I like. And I like “Project Runway All Stars” front-runner Dmitry Sholokhov just fine. But after five weeks of competition I’m kind of wondering what all the fuss is about. The judges have loved his designs, but I’m not sure he has belonged in the top three as often as the judges have put him there. Do you think his designs have really been as strong as his results? Vote in our poll at the bottom of this post to let us know.

Sholokhov came into this “All Stars” season undefeated, having won the show both times competed before: “Runway” season 10 and “All Stars” season 4. And he was the judges favorite right out of the gate in the current competition, winning the season premiere design challenge. He was safe for the next two weeks,

Did Juli Grbac really deserve to be eliminated for her monkey business on ‘Project Runway All Stars’? [Poll]

Did Juli Grbac really deserve to be eliminated for her monkey business on ‘Project Runway All Stars’? [Poll]
Another one bites the dust on “Project Runway All Stars.” Juli Grbac was the latest international contestant to be deported from the show this season, which pits American “Runway” champs against the winners of foreign spin-offs. So far three out of the four eliminations were of designers who came from abroad. Did the Australian Grbac really deserve to be ousted at the end of the “On the Prowl” design challenge? Vote in our poll at the bottom of this post to let us know.

Grbac wasn’t revealed as a contestant on the show until the end of the season premiere, so her competition didn’t start until week two. But maybe she could have used another week to settle in because she never wowed the judges during her four weeks in contention. She finished in the bottom two in the unconventional materials challenge by delivering a look that the

Did Michelle shamelessly copy Dmitry on ‘Project Runway All Stars,’ or did she win ‘On the Prowl’ fair and square? [Poll]

Did Michelle shamelessly copy Dmitry on ‘Project Runway All Stars,’ or did she win ‘On the Prowl’ fair and square? [Poll]
“Some of these people are just wolves in sheep’s clothing,” said “Project Runway All Stars” contestant Michelle Lesniak after the drama that ensued during the “On the Prowl” challenge. She designed a jagged-edged look inspired by a porcupine, but some of her fellow competitors thought she plagiarized one of Dmitry Sholokhov‘s looks from a previous season. Sholokhov seemed to think so too. The judges were also reminded of his aesthetic, but they didn’t think she stole anything from him because they gave her the win. What do you think? Vote in our poll at the bottom of this post to let us know if she really deserved this victory.

The designers were well into the workday when Irina Shabayeva caught a glimpse of Lesniak’s look and tattled to Sholokhov about the similarities she perceived. Evan Biddell also thought they were similar, though he gave Lesniak credit

‘Project Runway All Stars’ recap: The designers went ‘On the Prowl’ with their zoological looks [Updating Live Blog]
The “Project Runway All Stars” contestants this season designed looks inspired by national heritage, corsets and even airplane parts, but in episode five the show went to the dogs — or maybe the zebras, the elephants, or the gorillas. In “On the Prowl,” the remaining 11 competitors took their inspiration from zoo animals. So who won the challenge, and who went on the endangered species list? Scroll down for our live blog with all the minute-by-minute developments as they happen.

The international contestants got off to a slow start in this all-champions edition that pits winners of the American “Runway” against winners of the show’s foreign spin-offs. In the first four weeks of competition, three challenges were won by American champs: Dmitri Sholokhov in “All Stars Goes Global,” Anthony Ryan Auld in “Top of the Class” and Irina Shabayeva in “Buckle Up!” And two of the first three eliminations were contestants from abroad.

‘Project Runway All Stars’ elimination predictions (week 5): Django unsafe?

‘Project Runway All Stars’ elimination predictions (week 5): Django unsafe?
Django Steenbakker was cruising safely through “Project Runway All Stars” season seven before he got his first low score of the season in episode four, “Of Corsets Fashion.” Can he rebound from that? There have already been contestants this season who bounced back from a low score immediately to earn a high score, or even a win. But our users think Steenbakker is at greatest risk of elimination going into episode five tonight. Do you agree?

This season of “All Stars” pits American “Runway” champs against winners from the show’s international spin-offs, and Steenbakker comes to this competition by way of “Project Catwalk,” the Netherlands version of the series, which he won back in 2007. Two of the three eliminated contestants so far have been international, but while Steenbakker hasn’t wowed the judged yet, even his low score was a split decision. Guest judge Rebecca Minkoff was “confused” by
