Emily Brandle might have been ousted from Project Runway in episode 3, but she has a fan of her label Smoke & Mirrors (co-designed by Michelle Chaplin) in Paris Hilton, who's been wearing the Spun wrap dress in blue and coral around town—coral at Villa for a night out, and blue shopping at Barneys New York. The spring/summer '08 dress retails for $355 and has most recently been available at Petro Zillia on West 3rd Street. We wonder if there's any chance Hilton actually bought this dress with her bajillions, or was it as it usually goes, gifted by the designer?
