Spotted! Maya from Project Runway at a NYC-area bar, one week before Fashion Week show. Hmmm, what are you doing here, Maya??

Is Maya Luz a Project Runway finalist? That’s what we want to know after a spy spotted her near NYC, days before the big show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Friday Feb. 12.

Our spy saw her with a girlfriend on Fri. Feb 5, having a drink at a restaurant in Fairfield, CT — a suburb of NYC. She was carrying her own “ball and chain” evening bag, in black. Way to promote your own goods, Maya!

She politely refused to spill any beans, but we’ve noticed that she’s already pulling out as a front-runner — she has been in the top three contestants for the past two episodes. We are loving her Vivienne Westwood-meets-Dior vibe!

Can’t wait to hear who made it to the final three!
