Project Runway is back!

So, I have apparently been living under a complete rock lately. First I forget my blogiversary, then I forget that Project Runway is finally back on after very long hiatus and a network switch.

Will had to work a 24 hour shift yesterday, so I took advantage of the alone time to glue myself to the computer (like that's anything new) and watch the first two episodes that have aired.

I was afraid that maybe it would be different now that it's on Lifetime instead of Bravo and is in LA rather than NYC. But it's still my same old Project Runway that I love.

First, I was so happy to see Tim Gunn again that I nearly cried. I absolutely love Tim Gunn. Not in any kind of romantic or lusty way--I just adore him as a human being. I think the world would be a better place and anti-depressants would no longer be needed if everyone had their own personal Tim Gunn to guide them and support them. But did anyone else notice that his hair was looking a little stringy and yellow? If it was anyone else I wouldn't care, but Tim Gunn is the epitome of refined and dapper. I missed his perfectly distinguished silver-white hair.


Second, I'm really glad they booted the freaks in the first two episodes. They seemed nice enough, but their designs were horrible. An eggy sling-like shirt? A silver lame' soccerball-like...thing (sorry, I don't even know what to call it)? Auf wiedersehen and good riddance!

And was anyone else disturbed by the fact that Lindsay Lohan looked old and haggard? She looked like an aging crack addict. Wait, I guess that makes sense. But seriously, she looked older than Heidi, who is nearly twice her age! Sad, really. And I have to wonder if she voted to boot off Ari (the silver soccerball...thing designer) simply because she looked exactly like her ex, Samantha Ronson. I wonder if Lindsay would have hated her even if her dress had been amazing. Because really, the resemblance was uncanny. Talk about awkward!

Apparently I'm not the only one who thought this.

Anyway, I'm going to predict that Louise, Shirin, Althea, Irina and Gordana will be the top 5. That's right, an all-girl top 5. Christopher has a shot as well, but I'm going with the ladies.
