Johnathan Kayne Gillaspie

Continuing my love for all things "Project Runway," let's talk about the designer formerly known as Kayne Gillaspie, now known as Johnathan Kayne. Last night, TLC aired a special pilot of a show called "Gown Crazy." The show was wonderful! Mostly because Kayne is just so much fun to watch. He was running around frantically, making six thousand pageant gowns in twenty-four hours, with rhinestones a-blazing.

I loved Kayne when he was on Season Three of "Project Runway." His enthusiasm and sweetness added a much needed lightness to a pretty snarky and dramatic season. His dress for Miss USA was, in one word, perfect. I also loved his Marilyn Monroe tribute dress and his ombre gown for the couture challenge. The fellow makes one heck of a gown, let me tell you. If you want high glam, get on the phone to his workshop Oklahoma. Can you imagine what a glorious wedding gown he would make?

Here are photos of one of his current couture, bright and beautiful one-of-a-kind dresses, as well as a couple of his pageant gowns, plus shoes to match! He's won awards for his pageant designs, and you can see why. This fellow has a heavy sparkle addiction, and he's able to translate it into glamour and elegance.

I hope TLC picks up his show. What do you get when you watch it? Fashion, frenzy and a really wonderful guy. Kayne is still super fab, even if he's now Johnathan Kayne.
