Uh-oh! Remember how the Daily Beast ran a Project Runway inaugural gown challenge? Turns out that the sketch allegedly done by Jay McCarroll was actually created by Jay McCarrol, with one L, a musician who was (erroneously) contacted by a writer. Even though McCarrol was not the intended target of a pitch email for the project, he went ahead and sent a dress (sketched by a friend.) Tina Brown, editor of the Beast, has been informed of the "hoax" and pulled the design. Meanwhile, McCarrol's friend, a 20-year-old student at Toronto's Ryerson University, may have a future in fashion, no? [The Smoking Gun]
