We are SO proud of her!

Project Runway's Andy South was a season 8 finalist who was an outwardly gay man.

And now, the Hawaiian designer has completed the transition into turning into a woman, confirming the news on her Facebook page and changing her name to Nong Ariyaphon Southiphong.

She wrote:

"Thank you to my fans and friends who have supported me all the way. To my family for seeing me for me and for all the love I am surrounded with. I am blessed to be so accepted and welcomed just the way I am. May that love flow through me and onto many others. Live in love for the world needs it."

We are so proud of your bravery, Nong! And we are most looking forward to your upcoming designs!

Heidi Steps Out In Mondo Guerra

We're sure Season 8 winner Gretchen Jones will be thrilled to see this.

On Thursday night, Heidi Klum attended the closing night of the AFI Fest wearing a black and white dress by Project Runway runner-up Mondo Guerra.

If you watched the disappointing season finale, you probably remember how much Heidi loved this design as well as Guerra.

We're glad Mondo's getting the recognition and press he deserves!

Lifetime Does Not Censor Tim Gunn

Filed under: Anna WintourProject RunwayTim Gunn

Tim Gunn is setting the record straight about a video he posted on his Facebook page about last week's Project Runway.

The recap video, which he does all the time, was only up for a short time before it mysteriously disappeared leading people to believe the head honchos at Lifetime made him do it.

Unfortunately for all the haters that's not true.

Gunn told the NY Post:

"Lifetime had nothing to do with it. I did it completely on my own. There was a hurtful reaction to a couple of things I said, and that really concerned me. That was never my intention. I thought, 'Let me just take this down.' "

Thanks to the mean comments made by Anna Wintour's minions Tim may not do anymore vlogs:

"I don't want to hurt anyone, and at the same time I want to be able to talk matter-of-factly. The experience with this episode has been very sobering for me. It's kind of a wakeup call — you just can't say anything, yet, at the same time, there are things I want to share. I need to be a little more careful about it, even though we all make mistakes."

We think Tim should keep doing it.

People love him for his brutal honesty and want to hear his reaction since he doesn't get a chance on the show.

Last month, Coco Rocha tweeted a picture of a Marie Claire billboard with her all over it in Times Square, but wouldn't reveal what it was for.

And now we know why!

The ginormous ad in NYC was part of a Project Runway challenge, which aired last night. Designer Gretchen Jones was the lucky contestant who had the winning design, a navy jumpsuit.

Because she won, Gretchen's design was worn by Coco for the new Marie Claire campaign.

Congrats!

Christian Siriano isn't the only Project Runway contestant heading to the small screen.

Past season designers Austin Scarlett and Santino Rice are teaming up for a series on Lifetime called On The Road with Austin & Santino.

The womanly network said the show will follow Austin and Santino as they:

"Travel to and immerse themselves in the culture of small towns across America to create new, dream-come-true looks for special women in unique situations as they celebrate such life milestones as anniversaries, birthdays, balls, graduations and bachelorette parties."

They're definitely on the right channel!

On The Road premieres July 29th after the season premiere of Project Runway.

Will U be watching???
