Project Runway Over And We Didn't Even See It


This season of Project Runway ended today as it does every year beneath the tents during Fashion Week in New York. It is kind of humorous to imagine this entire season going on and no one even notices or cares that it has been filming. For those of you truly miss the show you can watch Project Runway Canada which I have been watching every week, umm, possibly in an illegal way. I mean it is Iman for goodness sakes. The woman is amazingly gorgeous still and the drama is just as good in Canada.

It also seems as if the designers there are given less time to work on their clothes than they are on the US version. It is only week three there I think so if you have missed the episodes it's not too late to try and catch up. I will say that one of the best designers in either version of the show is on the Canada one right now.

The great thing about the Canadian version is the judges are much more brutal in their assessments. There is no sugar coating it at all. The Tim Gunn of Canada is a completely different kind of guy than Tim and seems to offer more suggestions on changes the designers can make.

There is no timetable as to when this latest season of the US version will be shown, but guest judges this year were Christina Aguilera, Eva Longoria and Rebecca Romijn. Yes, much more Hollywood type judges, because, well, they filmed it all in LA. So, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia were not judges in every episode so it probably makes for a nice change.

I love PR...but I'm curious..who is allowed in the tent that they are able to keep it so hush for so long? Do they have to sign some kind of confidentiality agreement?

oh i fuckin love you El,thanks for the shoutout to Canada!

PRC is very good and wow, they are talented....but i do miss Tim.

I read the clothes were presented anonymously, so that would help keep the finalists on the DL.

Tim rocks. Definitely can see that he has worked with students, advising but also knowing that ultimately they need to make decisions for themselves. Kinda like a parent. It seems that someone who suggests changes is more of a judge-type, which has it's purpose I guess, but I heart Tim and his approach!

For those of us south of the great white north, how do you catch the Canadian version? Anybody got a link?

Debra Messing's guest judging was the last nail in my coffin of hatred for her. So stupid.

If I were a gay male, I would currently be stalking Tim Gunn.

Aww, I miss this show SO HARD! I wish NBC would just get over their shizz and let us have our show!

Racked and Gawker have both posted pics of the final 3’s collections - though they’re still anonymous. I can’t get myself to look! Too bittersweet :(

However, Christian Siriano’s collection for Spring 2009 looks AMAZING! I really think he’s the best thing to come out of that show. I’ve posted my fave looks here: http://squareeyes.blinkx.com/?p=361

Stunning, right?

Mexi, attendance is not restricted to the PR show. Annually, people have taken pictures and posted them immediately. It's just that, without seeing the show, you don't know who the red herring is and they do the judging back in the studio, so the winner isn't announced there. Of course if you only watched the show and didn't snoop online, you'd never see the red herring's line.

Thanks for the info duncan! I like it to be a surprise so I'll keep my snooping to a minimum!
