Welcome to the new season of Project Runway!!! It’s hard to believe it has already been 10 seasons and 10 years of questionable fashion and breakdowns and meltdowns. It feels like only yesterday I was wondering, “Where’s Andre?”
This is the correct answer
I am proud to follow in Flipit’s hilarious footsteps and I hope I can do justice to one of the shows and reviews that made me fall in love with TVGasm in the first place. I know what you’re all wondering; Will I make fun of how fat Heidi is? Will I point out the self-tanner running down Kor’s face and pooling in his neck wrinkles? Will Nina be chastised for demanding plates of newborns at craft services? The answer is yes. It just won’t be as funny.
It might just be meaner
Because everyone has to one-up their formula for success, the season opener is a live runway show in Times Square! Didn’t anyone take a lesson from ANTM? Oh, that would require people to still watch ANTM.
Courting the fat mid-western demographic
Tim Gunn is back! Heidi! Nina! The Magnificently Orange Michael Kors! You never realize how much you miss this cast of misfits until you sit through an All-Stars season without them.
There are 16 contestants and they really put together a great mix, we have one of everything! We have an Afro sporting Asian, the resident queeny bitch (with skunk hair no less), a Tara Reid lookalike, Overweight Morpheus, a Trendy Terrorist, a Dreadlocked Lesbian, the token Pretty Girl who can’t sew, one lady that is really, really old and another lady that won’t admit she’s really old! And that’s all just one contestant!
Thumbnails of diversity
So far they all seem to have really diverse styles and their portfolios seem to show a lot of talent as well. The tastes and “points of view” represented range from Japanese costumery to post-apocalyptic tomboy.
Post apocalyptic Asian boy
They have all brought a look they worked on at home and now have to take a day to create a companion piece. I think this is great – kind of like a mini-collection to showcase who each of these designers are. This causes the usual scramble in the workroom and meltdowns and self-doubt. The chick who doesn’t sew frets that she spent four days on her “homework” look and now has to pull something together in just one. I don’t suppose she’s watched this show before.
Tim Gunn (Scarecrow, I missed you most of all!) does just what he does best – puts on his sadistic avuncular hat and makes everyone even more crazy at the 11th hour.
Their despair secretly delights him
