Let's take a look… Events : First up is Fashion's Night Out , the brainchild of Vogue magazine celebrated editor, Anna Wintour.

Isis King is usually fielding questions about being the first transgender contestant named as a finalist on "America's Next Top Model," the time she spent as a homeless teen or even about her latest hairstyle — she recently switched to a fire-engine red hairdo. Somehow, the heart-wrenching story about the death of her baby sister, Channel, gets lost in the shuffle. One-year-old Channel died in 1992 after being born with her organs on the outside of her body. She required a number of medical procedures during her short life, King explained.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | March 12, 2013
The plan to substantially expand the Harford County Airport at Churchville in terms of runway capacity and number of flights per day has resurfaced, though in a more subdued form than had been pursued a little more than a decade ago. In short, the plan involves roughly doubling the width of the main runway to 75 feet and extending it by 1,000 feet to 3,200 feet, while closing two ancillary runways. Buildings on the property would also be upgraded. With a substantial portion of the airport on agricultural land, the Harford County Council made changes to the zoning regulations for agricultural districts to facilitate planned changes - thus allowing the airport owners to avoid the costly and oftentimes contentious process of having major upgrades approved through the county zoning appeals process.

This week, the designers were brought to Spin, a ping pong social club owned by Susan Sarandon. The challenge is for each team (same teams) to design five looks for the employees of Spin. Three for female servers, one for a male server, and one for a ball boy (the poor guy who has to run around Spin and pick up stray balls). I'm gonna spoil it for you right now: YES, lots of balls jokes are made. No, none of them are particularly good. Dream Team is confident with Platinum Aussie saying "I'm a natural born leader" again.

"Project Runway" Season 11 began last night, and first of all, I'd like to say the return of Heidi Klum is such a relief after an entire season of watching Angela Lindvall, who has all the charisma of hand sanitizer. I've grown to enjoy Joanna Coles, but she is no Tim Gunn. So, welcome back to the normal "Project Runway. "   The season begins with Heidi and Tim announcing that this season will be "Project Runway: Teams. " I guess I spoke too soon when I said welcome back to normal "Project Runway," guess we needed a gimmick.
