Welcome back Project Runway 4

Finally, the wait is over! It's time to bitch my way through fresh episodes of Project Runway again!
Heidi and Tim have been raving about this season's designers being the 'best' ever. I wonder if they meant the best 'designers' or the best 'drama queens' because it looks like this season's crowd are a bunch of divas. I love the drama, the egos, the hissy fits, the wacky behavior etc. - but I don't like it when it gets in the way of the real competition.
I was disappointed that they didn't do the 'Road to the Runway' episode this year. I like seeing how they choose the designers to be in the show. Instead they jumped right into the competition and for the first episode they took the designers to the Fashion Week park and made them run across a field to tents that were set up and stocked with beautiful fabrics from Mood. I loved it when the tattooed gal named Sweet P took off her wedge heels as soon as Heidi said they were going to have to run! They had to grab the fabrics they wanted, and then go back to the studio and make a dress that represented them as a designer.
The winner, to the left here, was Rami, who designed an amazingly draped silk dress, and I liked the flower even though Michael 'I think it vulgar' Korrs didn't. Bravo's Project Runway website kind-of improved their website photos - instead of the small runway photos that they've had in the past, they are now larger, usually badly posed photos of the garments. Two other favs of mine last night was Steven's suit and Christian's Plaid Jacket and shortened Hobble-style skirt. Simone got the boot because her dress was poorly made and unfinished. I really liked the color of her hair and her dark eyebrows (weird I know, but I'm currently thinking of changing my haircolor/style)
I didn't really like Marion's dress with that jagged style hemline, it reminded me of what Jeffrey did last year again and again (still not a Jeff fan) The 80s style orange bubble-skirt with pockets wasn't a fave either.
Now onto Elisa. The shot of Tim watching her put grass stains (yes, I said grass stains) on white fabric during the fabric grab in Bryant Park was priceless! She's a very artsy, free spirit kind of gal. Think of Angela and Santino combined (creativewise) and I think you can get an idea of Elisa's creative process. She made a turquoise fitted gown that looked fairly good from the front (except for the scrunched turquoise boots that she paired with it) but in the back she had a 5ft+ train of shreaded chunks of fabric that her model tripped over on the runway.

I was very happy with the episode and I can't wait until next week!

I'm sorry, but every time they showed Christian, all I could think of was Chris Kattan playing "Mango" on Saturday Night Live. Check it out:

Am I crazy?

I am equally excited.

I have to say that Rami's work is very Madame Alix Gres isn't it?

It was!
Good times.

I really like that Chris guy and I agree with everyone else that Christian reminds me of "Mango".
This should be a fun season.
