We’re getting closer to finding a winner on Project Accessory! Last night’s episode took the seven remaining contestants to the beach and challenged them to use anything they could find to create sandals, headwear, and an additional accessory. Guest judges designer Rachel Roy and J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons joined InStyle’s own Ariel Foxman to pick a winner. Foxman tweeted throughout the show broadcast last night, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites below: More
After a brief Thanksgiving hiatus, Project Accessory is back with a new episode tonight! For the contestants’ fifth test, mentor Eva Jeanbart-Lorenzotti brings the group to the beach for inspiration to design marine-inspired accessories. After collecting seashells and T-shirts from seaside vendors, the designers craft items—some good, some bad. J. Crew creative director Jenna Lyons guest judges (“It’s Little Bo Peep on acid!” she tells one contestant), alongside InStyle editor Ariel Foxman (“It doesn’t look human,” he says to another competitor). Watch a sneak preview above, and tune in to Lifetime tonight at 10/9c to see which designers rose to the challenge.

Who knew Martha Stewart was such a fashionista? In an upcoming special for the Hallmark Channel, the domestic diva and media mogul interviews Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan and J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons. Naturally, with subjects this successful, the show is as much about empire building as it is about clothes. “This is true American dream here,” Diane von Furstenberg pointed out during her segment. “We have you as the big American dream and me as the little American dream.” Relaxed with her peers, Martha saucily jokes with them about dating, bodysuits (she’s pro) and her favorite stilettos. In short, Martha Stewart: The Women Who Dress America is the perfect blend of girl talk and business wisdom—get a sneak peek after the jump and tune in this Sunday at 9:00/8:00 Central.
