'Project Runway's' Philip Carreon on wine, hotdogs and more


If you're watching "Project Runway," you know there's a new network (Lifetime) and a new locale (L.A.). There's also a new cast member: hairstylist Philip Carreon, who's fittingly a native Angeleno.

"I grew up in Pico Rivera and now live in Silver Lake," he said. "And this year my salon, Estilo on Beverly, is celebrating its 18th anniversary. We've both been around for a while."
Carreon's glitzy client list has included Brad Pitt, Prince, Demi Moore and Miley Cyrus, but now he finds himself in a featured role.

"It's a change in my career," he said, "and it's been a lot of hard work, but a lot of fun too."

We asked Carreon to share his favorite way to spend a weekend in Los Angeles. Gotta love a weekend that begins with a stop at Silverlake Wine and a gourmet hot dog truck....
