Oscar Parties

I've been running around Hollywood going to Oscar parties, crazy times! I found some pictures of myself at Getty Images from the Global Green USA Oscar Party and the Gotham Party...

Hey Santino,

Hi. It's Diana. Can you mail me one of those pictures? I have a picture frame that adheres to refrigeration units using magnets and science. It would be super cool to see a picture of you everytime I open the fridge to get my spirulina juice.

You haven't mentioned anything to me about the show last week but if you noticed I tried to keep my voice down so you wouldn't get so annoyed with me this time. I definitely didn't want you to hide my bag of magnets and chemistry set like last time. Or was it Zulema who did that?

...

Santino, I miss you. Dirty Diana misses you. But most importantly, our child misses you. Please come home, we can have mixed drinks, create fashion together (SCIENCE FASHION! COOL!), and live in a house we built with our own 2 hands, assembled with magnets and science.

Love Always,
Dirty Diana Rice

Dirty Di... you're delicious.

oh, tino you so fine.

I just saw this clip of the lingerie discussion between you and nina here
http://youtube.com/watch?v=Rhvrk11EY3c
you were really eloquent in defense of your lingerie design and i can see now how nina was exaggerating when she later told interviewers that she was afraid you were going to get off the stage and hurt her.

Dear Mr. Santino,
"We are writing this to you
and we hope that you will read it so you'll know
Our hearts beats like a hammer
and we stutter and we stammer
every time we see you at the Runway show!
We guess we're just another fan of yours
and we thought we'd write and tell you so. . .

You made us love you
We didn't wanna do it, we didn't wanna do it!
You made us love you
and all the time we knew it,
I guess we always knew it.
You made us happy, sometimes you made us glad.
But there were times, sir, you made us feel so sad.
You made us sigh 'cause
We didn't wanna tell you,
we didn't wanna tell you . . .
WE THINK YOU'RE GRAND, IT'S TRUE!
Yes we do, 'deed we do, you know we do.
We must tell you what we're feeling
The very mention of your name
sends our hearts reeling.
You know you made us love you!"

As the PR show ends, You have been humbled, came forward and set things straight, and continue to make us laugh! Big rewards because of this, as we already know how talented and awesome you are. When my daughter becomes a famous actress, will you design for her. She is only a Freshman at Eastern Washington University-Theatre Major, but you have inspired us. Keep celebrating Life and Be You!
"We don't care what happens,
let the whole world stop.
As far as we're concerned, Santino, you're the top,
'cause you know you made us love you!"

Win SANTINO Win! Love, Susan and Kim

Once you make it to Getty Images...you know you've made it. Santino...you have made it!

She is very much in agreement!
She is still just a Freshman at

but you have inspired us.

Lookin good SANTINO OH OH

Wow...you are SO pretty! Uh... I mean, good looking, yeah. =)

*sucks in air over teeth* Nice pix !! I like the one to the far right best of all~you have really gawgiss eyes & killer eyebrows!

I love that first pic of you.

And as for the lingerie discussion, I agree with lem0ntart. If that was threatening to Nina, she must not spend much time walking on the street. She seriously needed to listen to you about who your audience was. It wasn't her.

Hey Santino,

HOWCUM NONE OF THE FINE OSCAR LADIES DIDN'T CLAW EACH OTHER'S EYES OUT TO GET THE CHANCE TO WEAR THAT BEYOND FABULOUS SANTINO CAMOFLAGUE RUNWAY DRESS ?...THE ONE WITH THE PLEATS... I WANT IT!!!!!! IF YOU GOT ABS TO DUPLICATE IT EVERY PROM QUEEN IN AMERICA WOULD BE CLAWING INTO THEIR MAMMA'S PURSE FOR $$$$ TO PURCHASE IT. YOU are THE GOLDEN STATUE OF INSPIRATION.
YO MAMMA

such the handsome man.. i'm excited for you - you have to be loving all of this!

all the best,
much love - Jill

I'm loving that hair length on you. I was a fan of the longer too, but I hope you keep it the way it is for a while. It took me a sec to figure out what was off about the pictures... no hat! ;) Regardless, you're looking sharp, Rice.

I don't care what anyone says, Santino is the best designer on the PR!!!!! The most imaginative and the most entertaining! I love you, MR. SANTINO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PEACE!!!!!!!

You're gorgeous :)

I'm watching the PR marathon all day today while preparing my house for my own Oscar party. Wanna come? ;)

Will we see you on the red carpet tomorrow? Or any of your designs?

The beard trim looks great...hope you are having a blast Santino and making some great connections!

Santino I had the HOTTEST fucking sex dream about you lastnight.

oh hey there broseph,
I'd just like to tell you I go to Smith College in Mass. and every Wednesday about 30 of us watch Project Runway together and fawn over you. Except for one girl, she likes Daniel V. but the rest of us think he's a jerk. Also, I had this really weird dream that I met you on the beach and we did it, my dreams are such a party!

Anyway, us gals at Smith just wanted to say that we know you'll win, but even if you don't you'll be the most successful anyway. WE HAVE FAITH DUDE.ta
~Abbey
p.s. you should design clothes for smith because everyone here wears track pants that say "Smith" on them all the time

SANTINO,

I have nothing but respect for you, and I am constantly inspired by your unique vision. I hope that one day I will be able to follow in your footsteps and be on project runway...one of my many dreams.See you later

Eyeriz (dont forget this name)

You're a fucking dead ringer for my brother. He's moving to LA. You two should jam or something. Tea, whatever.

Santino!

I LOVE YOUR HAT!

You have the best hat collection of all time. I just had to share that with you.

Sorry about the double post!
I guess we can't say it enough.
Big Smile!

Ok, I figured it out. What should Santino do next after winning Project Runway?

Host Saturday Night Live of course!

I mean come on! That show is begging for a Tim Gunn impersonation!

that's hot.

Hi Santino,
I think you deserve to win! You are best no matter what people say about your manners in the show, and it seems that afterall, you are a kind hearted person. Thanks for the experience of seeing your amazing collection every week.

i have a merchandise suggestion...i imagine you could make a bit of cash if you create boy short undies (for the ladies)printed with, "are these space pants?...because my ass is out of this world" on the front/back. i promise to buy some if you do.

Santino, looking goooooood!!!!! xx

Just to further the earlier comments about the reunion show and the positive vibe I wanted to write to you, Santino, and say that I truly adored watching PR this season because of you. I'm not sure exactly how to write this without writing forever but I'll sum up by saying that your "real-ness" (seemingly an oxymoron with respect to reality tv) has won you my respect and my long-distance friendship -- even though you did not go on that show to make friends. I think you accomplished your goal of making it to the final three with passion and pizzaz (the musical was amazing for example -- you are just really cool). Most importantly, I would be a fool not to love your designs. Good luck in everything!

found this article about PR and Santino, you get the most mentions! xx

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/03/02/fashion/thursdaystyles/02runway.html

SANTINO! Where is ANDRE???? &=D

I hope you won!! But even if you didn't, you're already a winner!! I watch Project Runway cuz you're so funny!! You and Andre and Tim Gunn should have a reality show..lol...

Hope all your dreams come true..and don't forget, God loves you and cares for you!

cheers!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santino_Rice

Santino, you should add to the wikipedia page about you. Seriously, that page is lacking. It doesn't even have a hot picture of you!

So please, add to it!

Santino, Santino, Santino,

What is the world going to do with you?
Don't get those deer headlights
or the Hollywood brights
in your eyes ...cause you are going for the real PRIZE.

Hey, it may
not be
The Project Runway one
because they'll dump you quick
like last year's frock
when the show is done

Talent needs a sponsor
but you got to act quick
you got the smarts, you got the genius, and you got the DICK!

You outshine
Chloe and Dan
one is too Texas
The other just discovered
he's a gay man
(So his stitches are still a little too tight in his hand for me to be a fan)

Santino, Santino, Santino
What are you gonna do?
WE need you!

How fun for you!! I'm glad you're living it up - you've worked very hard to get to this place.. enjoy!

Got my Academy Award E! channel marathon fired up and am hoping for a Santino sighting.

Santino, have you seen this commentary?

"To me, there is a very clear winner, and that would be Santino Rice. I have thought that the majority of his designs have been very unique, editiorial, and clever. I adore the dress he made for Nicky Hilton. Who am I kidding? I'm jealous; I want that dress. Not to mention he came into the show with a fabulous first design: a chic short turquoise dress made of very simple material, yet it looked very high fashion. While he has gone over the top, namely with his lingerie designs along with the outfit he created for Sasha Cohen, he's taking risks unlike the rest of the designers. Lastly, Rice looks the part of a designer. He has a unique sense of personal style and a very fashionista attitude to go with it. Whether he wins Project Runway or not, the man has made a name for himself in the fashion industry."

Dear Santino fans, all 'Project Runway' crue will be on 'Big idea with Donny Deutsche' Monday at 10 p.m. et.(Sorry, don't know about West coast). Don't know if Santino's gonna be there, but his name dafinately will. Let's watch!

Santino, running around attending Oscar parties - sounds good baby!!!

Irina

Santino, maybe you should be like DeNiro, Pacino and those guys and pretend to be above all that Oscar hoopla....til you get nominated!

Irina, thanks for posting- I'd have to say this will be the first time I watch CNBC ever! Everyone who visits this page should go vote for Santino on http://www.bigideadonny.com/home2.html
since Daniel V is ahead by 1.7% in popularity (guess that goes to show you CNBC's audience- Tim Gunn grimace while looking at Daniel's sterile collection, anyone?)
It's also kinda cool to see Ms. Eng posting here. Not to beg a question, but since Diana seems to still be cool with you Santino, what happened with Nick? We saw him pout after the attempted turd polishing, but Tim mentioned the whole "falling out thing" on the reunion show a couple weeks back. Did he say anything to you after the show? And do any of the other designers (particularly the guys in LA) keep in touch with you? Sorry for all the questions, I can't help but ask, hey, maybe you'll see them and will get a split-second to answer. Thanks for creating this web page, it's cool to get this glimpse into your stardom. Only about 58 more hours until we get to see the grand finale!!!
-Dan (djgovernmental@yahoo.com)

Santino rice, you are Jafar.
I am infatuated with you.

YOU are the HOWARD ROARK of Fashion.

I am in love with your mind, it's beauty enchants me.

Sincerely yours,
Susan Sabry

Santino,

I just think you are incredibly unreal! You are sexy as hell too! Can you design me a great outfit? I will pay whatever it takes!!

santino, i just got back from the fabric store! your beautiful garments have me sewing again!

you are awesome, beyond awesome.
wish i knew you...when i found out you were originally midwestern, well, i figured out why i liked you so much from the start!like you, i was born in the midwest, but my soul is pure LEFT COAST!

you are great, sweet, humble person. anyone who doesn't think so doesn't know anything about fashion OR how reality T.V. works!

i'm buying a ww$d sign for my automobile....i wonder, do they utilize magnetic science or adhesives technology? ("di" just made me laugh)

dearest santino, please never let your dream die...there are MILLIONS pulling for you, and we will be WAY after PR names you the winner!

YOU INSPIRE ME. with your artistry, humor, and spirit. thank you
(libby)

santino... all these people WANT you! so damn hot

psh, insecurities? you should know that there are thousands of people out there that want you, and want everything about you. we dont think you have anything to be insecure about. we think you're the shit!

Let me see... Santino Rice and Tim Gunn show up at Oscar-related events and then Naomi Watts takes the red carpet in a Santino-looking creation (which she declares is Givenchy, but is she kidding?)

Could it be? Has Santino won??!

The Getty photos of Fashion Week show a collection that looks anything BUT Santino-esque (except for the one frock with the leatherette top and froufy skirt, which was perhaps the last minute addition they were assigned last week.)

Seems Nina Garcia's and Michael Kors' comments really did sink in as Santino returned home and dug in to create the final collection. When stripped of all the frivolous add ons, Santino is one hell of a designer. Beautiful stuff there during Fashion Week. I think I may have turned in to a believer.

Love your designs, love your personality. Love you seemed to learn from your Project Runway experience. Lose the Army Jacket for All occasions and some of the facial hair. Santino Rocks
