In an interview on April 20 on the Podcast “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef”.Posen was asked if he thinks shows like Project Runway are still working.

“I find them entertaining,” Posen replied. “You know, I haven’t seen this season. I’m sure it’s an opportunity for talent. Right. I think I don’t think it’s really representative of the fashion industry right now? You know, it’s its own thing. But I’m sure being on ‘The Voice’ isn’t representative of what it’s going to be like to have a pop career per se.”

“I mean, you know, doing a runway show is very different than, you know, it’s just a different process, right?” he added. “You know, in the fashion industry you produce clothes and it’s different than one-offs in a short time. … But I loved being on ‘Project Runway’. You know, being a judge for six years has been an amazing experience. I had a great time with my crew and, you know, it was a great family and, you know, me, Nina and Heidi, you know, that was our summer camp for at least six years of my life. And when I was on the show, it definitely gave me great visibility. The show was internationally syndicated at the time. I’m not sure it still is.”


Posen considered collaborating with some of Hollywood’s most famous women but declined to name the best-dressed Real Housewives star

Elsewhere in the interview, Posen spoke about some of the famous women he has worked with. He credited Natalie Portman with his breakthrough in fashion when she wore a dress from his first runway show to a “Star Wars” premiere.

He also revealed that he brought Kim Kardashian to her very first Vogue event, which caused quite a stir.

“I brought Kim to her first similar Vogue event. And that was, you know, it was like a scandal,” he said. “I mean, was it like really? And I was like, well, she’s like the biggest of the biggest stars in the world. I remember saying she was really very smart, very ambitious. … And then I like that, …. She will be the biggest star in the world. And I introduced her to Karl Lagerfeld and, you know, and I, he looked at her and said, ‘Oh my God, it’s like Nefertiti,’ and you know, she wanted to photograph her. And that was it!”

While he also spoke about working with Naomi Campbell, Rihanna and Claire Danes, Posen stopped playing favorites with Bravo’s Real Housewives franchise. When asked about the best-dressed Real Housewives of New York City star, he replied, “Oh my god. I would never say that. New York is too small a city to name favorites!”

Posen’s response to the Housewives question was very different from that of fellow Bravo member Carson Kressley, who has no trouble speaking Housewives style. For years, the Queer Eye alum has critiqued Real Housewives’ fashion and “rated” outfits on appearances on Watch What Happens Live. via BravoTV.com, where he was asked to “rate” her outfits.

When asked to rank the best dressed ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ star his own interview With Yontef, Kressley didn’t miss a beat when he named Luann de Lesseps and said she “always looks great.”

“Some of the others are maybe a bit more hit or miss,” he admitted.
