Designer for Less: Catherine Malandrino Today at Gilt Groupe

I have to let Recessionistas know that Catherine Malandrino is on sale today at the Gilt Groupe. I’m smiling as I write this, because whenever I think of Ms. Malandrino, I think of one of the funniest moments ever from Project Runway when Vincent meet Catherine and practiced what I will call “shameless flattery” on her during Season 3 when they were in Paris. In case you have forgotten, here’s a picture of that magic moment.

I loved it when Vincent was showing her his evening gown. It was a classic moment on the show. She showed real restraint and class. But enough about the Runway, back to today’s sale. Gilt is featuring Catherine Malandrino for a little discount today. Click here to shop the sale as my guest. Enjoy. No compliments required :)

PS: Leave your glue gun at home :)

    LOL. Vincent was SO cool.
    I’ll always remember when he got voted off he said, “I’ve been making beautiful music my whole life.”
    Remember when he dissed everyone on the Reunion show? Laura Bennett laid smack down on him.

    Loved the LAUNDRY incident too:

    His meeting with Catherine M was just another brick in the wall. Do you think he shopped at GILT today ? :)

    I LOVED season 3 of Project Runway! The contestants (Vincent included) were great, and the Catherine Malandrino episode was especially fun. SO much better than season 4; I can’t stand that Christian Siriano!
