One of my favorite shows in the world is coming back August 20 on Lifetime (previously on Bravo)…Project Runway! Yayyyy pizza for everyone!! Lol, but really I absolutely love this show. I think they find extremely talented designers who portray their talent and keep us entertained. This definitely isn’t one of those shows where there is suspect talent and only like 3 people are good. No my friend, usually almost half of them are amazing and it’s hard to pick out who you really love. My all time favorite was definitely Christian Siriano (FIERCE!) and he’s definitely doing his thing, like designing clothes for many starlets and showing at NYC fashion week.
Other good news, Lifetime will also have a show called Models of the Runway which will feature the 16 models who walk for the designers. Usually no one cares that much about them but they are also competing for a prize — a feature in Marie Claire. I think this will be interesting because we never really get to see their prospective from the show. Models of the Runway will premiere right after Project Runway.
But the good news doesn’t stop there compadres; Lifetime is ALSO supposedly having an “all-star” Project Runway to air a few weeks before the show actually starts. Cast members may include Chris March, Jeffrey Sebelia, Michael Knight, Daniel Vosovic, Santino Rice, Kenley Collins (an FSU alumni), Sweet P, Korto Momolu, and possibly more. (Christian Siriano, Rami Kashou, Jack Mackenroth, Kit Pistol, and Laura Bennett turned down the offer).
This is some great stuff if you’re into fashion, design, models, etc. I can’t wait for the season to start and all the great fall shows (America’s Next Top Model, Ugly Betty, Grey’s Anatomy, etc.) to get going. So many great shows are now coming on Thursday night…aahh the magic of TiVo!
