Project Runway: Fashion Weak

Brian Moylan · 11/20/09 01:39PM

Project Runway is all about vision and delusion. The vision to ask three designers to compete for a prize. The delusion their entries will look different. The vision to return January 14th, the delusion your audience will come back.

Tonight's Project Runway Finale Has Least Shocking Twist Ever

Brian Moylan · 11/12/09 06:02PM

If Althea, Carol Hannah, or Irina have ever seen a season of Runway before, they should know that the producers always pull something like this. If the twist is just that they have to make one more outfit, they should be more than ready for such a curveball. We would like to hope that they have to construct the whole thing out of dried cactus flowers, construction paper, and the gray hair from Tim Gunn's brush and it has to be inspired by the Anime classic Akira, but that would be way too inventive for this year. They'll probably just get more money to go spend at the fabric store and make whatever the hell they want.
