Project Runway Season 13 has come to an end.....and it is amazing that it has survived almost 10 years and so many seasons and somehow, in the twilight of it's run, it is getting some of the best ratings in the history of the series. It looks like there will be plenty more seasons to come!

For this Finale Episode, we start where we left off. The designers are in the lounge and poor Kini is having a mini-meltdown after the judges did not like the preview of his collection.

Oscar de la Renta Final Runway Bow: Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 Collection, NY Fashion Week September 9, 2014

I was very sad yesterday to hear of the passing of Fashion Design Icon--or as Fern Mallis described him as "The Sultan of Suave", Oscar de la Renta. As a young boy growing up in Caracas Venezuela dreaming to be a fashion designer, Oscar de la Renta was one of my IDOLS. Not only did I love and admire de la Renta's beautiful so-Lady Like designs, but he was LATINO. And this was especially nice to a young half-Latino boy who didn't see many other Latino fashion designers out there to "look up to".

This continued once I moved with my family to the United States and the San Francisco Bay Area. My mom--always supportive of my dream--found out one year that Oscar de la Renta would be making an appearance at San Francisco I. Magnin Union Square and she dragged me (kicking and screaming!--Not!) to get to meet him. And I did.  There's a photo of that somewhere. I'm sure it's in one of my mom's many "photo album" storage boxes. Meeting him that day was EVERYTHING to me.

 Travel Style Correspondent: Nick Verreos at Best Western Herald Square NYC

Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of flying to NYC to film some fun and very special "Stylish Travel Tips with Nick Verreos" video segments for Best Western in advance of tonight's Season 13 "Project Runway" Finale Part 1 Episode. The top four designers get to go to ROME, ITALY (!) and stay at the fabulous Best Western Premier Hotel Rome.

I had the fun honor of filming these fun segments at the Best Western Herald Square NYC Hotel. I approached unsuspecting travelers who were staying at the hotel and asked them if I could look into their suitcases.

La Mas Bella: Mariana Jimenez, "Miss Venezuela 2014"--Miss Venezuela 2014 Finals

This past Thursday, the 62nd annual "Miss Venezuela" pageant took place. For years, it had been at the massive Poliedro de Caracas--the Caracas Polyhedron Arena--which can seat up to 20,000 (it had also been held in other venues, but this was the pageant's usual "home"). But (according to rumor) as a result of tough economic times in the country, this year's beauty pageant was downsized to the much, much, much smaller Estudio 1 of Venevision--one of Venezuela's largest TV networks.

There was a lot of speculation before the pageant aired whether or not the contestants would even have enough makeup to wear since many international news outlets were announcing the fact that good makeup was a difficult find in Venezuela (times are a tough there darlings--well, at least for the lower-and-middle classes). But yes, the pageant organizers found enough makeup, hair spray and Couture-worthy fabric to create gowns--and as they say..."The Show Must Go On!".
