Blame it on celebrities and their Spanx, Lady Gaga's corsets, or Mad Men—but shapewear is officially back as a wardrobe basic. Thankfully, Cynthia Rowley is designing a collection of body sculpting undergarments that don't look like your granny's girdles. Called Slim by Cynthia Rowley, the new collection of high-waisted bikinis, body-hugging slips, and minimizing bras are color-blocked in nude with turquoise or black with gray and look nothing like those other flesh-toned biker shorts. Slim by Cynthia Rowley will be in stores this summer and retail for $118 to $226.

From left: looks by Project Runway winner Seth Aaron Henderson
Seth Aaron Henderson, the 38-year-old stylist from Vancouver, Washington, took home the big prize last night during the finale of Project Runway season seven. Henderson impressed the judges with his "1940s German-Russian military collection of kick ass girls." Michael Kors called it "exhilarating and powerful," and Nina Garcia thought the collection "fearless." As winner, Henderson will receive $100,000 to continue work on his collection and said his first big splurge will be a vacation with his wife and two children.
Runner-up Emilio Sosa's collection was titled "Color Me Bad" and featured bold reds and blues, while Mila Hermanovski (who took third) presented an impeccably made lineup of mod pieces in black and white. Click below to see all ten looks from each designer, starting with winner Seth Aaron.
