'Project Runway''s Wendy Pepper Dead at 53


That's a small comfort. Though no cause of death was given, Wendy's obituary says that she "died peacefully on November 12, 2017, surrounded by her loving family".

Wendy was born in Dayton, Ohio, and graduated from Potomac School, the Madeira School, and the University of Washington.

"A finalist on season one ofProject Runway, Wendy designed and hand-sewed exceptionally handsome clothes for children and adults", her obituary reads. 'Wendy was one of the original designers that sent creations down the catwalk, paving the way for other designers to come.

It was also written in the obituary: 'Her wit and humor were unmatched, as was her generosity of spirit'.

Wendy is survived by her daughter, her parents, three brothers, one sister, and many nieces and nephews. Her funeral will be at a Georgetown church on December 1.

Pink's hilarious reaction to Christina Aguilera's AMAs performance
Regardless of how her performance came across or was received, there was no doubt that Aguilera had the best of intentions. Pink wasn't exactly green with envy at the American Music Awards Sunday night.

She returned to the series in 2012 where she starred in the second season of Project Runway All Stars.

Following her passing, many fans took to social media to share their condolences, with one appearing to quote "Project Runway", writing, "If you really want to succeed, you've gotta be willing to throw yourself into the arena". To lose two favorite stars within a month is absolutely shocking. Mychael Knight competed on Season 3, and he passed away on October 17, 2017, just one month before Wendy.

In more positive "Project Runway" news, a new victor was just crowned last night.

Pepper appeared on the first season of the Lifetime show "Project Runway". Tonight, one of its original contestants from the very first season is being remembered, however, after passing away at age 53.
