Project Runway Season 6: Models of the Runway

We're all gonna be dragging our asses on Friday mornings!



As part of their ongoing PR (and we don't mean Project Runway) blast, myLifetime.com unveiled pages upon pages revealing their plans for the companion series to Project Runway, Models of the Runway.

"Models of the Runway," an exciting new companion series to "Project Runway," will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the reality competition — from the models’ perspective. Viewers can experience the drama, anxiety, joys, tears and frustrations as the models themselves face elimination each week and compete for a cash prize and photo spread in Marie Claire magazine.

Lifetime Television and The Weinstein Company give "Project Runway" fans the ultimate, all-access backstage pass with the dazzling new companion series, "Models of the Runway," premiering Thursday, August 20, at 11 pm et/pt. "Models of the Runway" offers viewers — for the first time ever — a no-holds-barred look at everyone’s favorite design series from the models’ perspective. The 16 women vie to be paired with the winning designer of "Project Runway" for a $25,000 cash prize from L’Oreal Skin Genesis and a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine."

Very cool that the models are also in the running for a cash prize. Also very cool is that they're doing this as a companion show. We all love model drama, but not if it takes away from the actual design competition. This show looks like a ton of fun to us.

Let's check out the girls, shall we? They look like a pretty fabulous bunch. Each of their names link to their respective pages on myLifetime.com. So let's get to some pre-judging, ladies. Which ones look like divabitches? Which one is the airhead? The one that won't stop talking? The one that will give the designers the most trouble? Most importantly, which one will a designer on the chopping block claim is too fat to look good wearing their creation?

I love models! Kojii is freaking fabulous!


They look pretty fab.

I'll reserve judgment until the show.

Who'll be the Morganza psycho? Who will get jerked around like Tarah?

Who will be fabulous on another plateau like Nazri, Grace, or Camilla?

We'll have to wait and watch!


What the eff is going on with that photo of the girl with the dead-looking bird?


Erika in her head shot reminds me of that actress from Law and Order:SVU

That 1 girl from the 2nd role looks like a giant doll in that photo

well at least there are good shots. hope most of them can walk

An Erica AND and an Erika? Is that going to be a wee bit confusing when they're calling out names?


I am confused, boys. These women are all professional fashion models, and to the best of my understanding, a model's job is to pose for photographs and/or walk in runway shows which will be heavily photographed. One would think that for all of these women, there would be hundreds, even thousands of photographs in existence. So WHY would Lifetime chose to show a blurry photo scanned from a color newspaper section or a "me and my pet" shot lifted from a model's facebook page?


Wow, these are some great models! Might be the best crop yet.

Lifetime probably asked the models for photos to create a portfolio for each one of them. Some might not have professional pictures yet, which is kind of strange, not even studio shots?

My guess : )


Fatma, Kojii, and Vanessa. My favorites, so far.


Well, Fatma is my favorite. I'm already having wet dreams about her walking the runway.


I think I'll pass on this.


"TheNYCourier said...

LOL. She's fabulous!


Fatma! Oh my, she's a stunning creature. I hope she can walk.

This may be the show that finally get's the Tyra monkey off my back...Oh, who am I kidding, I can't leave the crazy.


One more vote for Fatma. She's stunning!


Fatma, Yosuzi, Lisa, and Erica are my favorites. I love Erica's haircut because I get sick of seeing almost all runway models with long hair, she's very pretty and fresh looking...Tanisha's pelvic bones are protruding way, way too much. Mega disturbing at how skinny she is. Yes, I know models are supposed to be skinny but she looks malnourished. Matar looks like she had a bit of a 'tude. Can't see enough of Tara, which we could. The bird pic of Valerie is kind of weird, WTF?


I just hope they can walk, I was not impressed with S5 or S6, with a few exceptions of course.


"Stephanie said...

ROFL. I thought the same thing.


Are they going to trash the designers on camera? That would be awesome.


FATMA FUCKING ROCKS!!!!!

The new Nazri or Camille???


Sorry, that was supposed to be CamiLLA.


Rami also had a beautiful red haired model. I think they all look pretty fab even with the bizarre photos on a couple. Should be a fun show. I plan to watch.


Awwww that pic of Valerie with the african grey is adorable. My birds like to roll around on the bed too. I wonder if that is her feathered kid?


FATMA FATMA FATMA! Fabulous to death.

I really like Kojii and Lisa too. They all look pretty fabulous though, really.


Tanisha looks like one of Mychael Knight's models for his finale show. Am I wrong?


Fatma is the shit.


AWESOME!!!

One of the best things about Season 1 was that we got to see so much model drama.


Mariana (The Unoriginal)

LOL. This is so cool because we're all going to be expecting Fatma or whoever we like come down the runway and judge her. Talk about pressure!


Already loving Vanessa- reminds me of those 90's supermodels. And S1 Melissa :)


That pic of Valerie with the bird is actually much better than the pic on the Lifetime site. Yeesh. There's something very manly about it. Odd since under "describe your look" she says "soft and feminine".

So far Fatma is my favorite, but I also like Lisa.


This show should have been done years ago--I would have loved to have seen the fallout from Season 2 when Zulema had a walk-off, stole Nick's model, and totally trashed her own.


Fatma is just lucky to have the most fabulous, high-fashion picture in this post. I can't imagine why she would be everybody's favorite otherwise. She seems good but I certainly don't see anything amazingly breathtaking about her yet.


Vanessa reminds me of Liz Hurley.


another laura

I don't know anything, guys, but a 6-foot Asian glamazon? Celine for the win.


"Anonymous said...

She's not "just lucky" she takes amazing pictures, just check her page on Lifetime.


It's possible that I am more excited about this show than I am about PR. I can't believe it's taken this long for someone to make this show!

And all of those girls look fabulous.

I do have to laugh at the badly pasted together "group photo." What? They couldn't get all these bitches in one room together for a picture? LOL!

My only question: will we see a mother-f***ing walk off?


GO VANESSA!!!!!!!!

Amanda,

I have a feeling they did that so that they can "delete" one by one as they get eliminated, a la America's Next Top Model.


HellsKitchenDude

They look fierce. I'm excited.


its about time they win some $$. i am really looking forward to this show. anything to extend PR :)


Bring on the drama!


They are all pretty. It's hard to say which ones will be "good".
But that group shot is stupid.


I think most models aren't redheads because most people aren't redheads. It's a rare color.

It's too bad they used that particular picture for Erika, because it covers up her best feature, which are her gorgeous freckles. Based on the Lifetime shots, she seems VERY young and very new (a la Seventeen), whereas others seem to have more experience(s).

Fatma's picture here jumped out at me... Stunning. Her others are good too, although she's not rocking the swimsuit on the catwalk.


I like Ebony, Kojii and Yosuri. It's hard to tell who will be "the fat one" when its more based on how lame the designer is than any perceived fat on the model.


kojii, fatma, eriCa


I sure hope Lifetime is planning on rerunning episodes of this one because a midnight bedtime on a school night is not in the cards for moi.

Beautiful women, to be sure, but I have to say I find most of them to have very commercial looks and bodies. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but definitely not high fashion.


Lisa looks interesting.

She'll have to be my pick because I seriously cannot retain any more information about contestants of reality shows.


Holy brickhouse, Tanisha!


What is surprsing to me is I do not see any of the faces from MNASM or ANTM.

TampaBay


OMG, this sounds like SO much fun! I can't wait, you guys!

Fatma looks F A B U L O U S to me. Look at that killer pose, those mile-long legs and that graceful neck. My love for Nazri is undying, but I hope Fatma will be just as amazing.


Well, this is an added bonus!
Smart of Lifetime to try to appease & lure us over. Give us more reason to make the jump to their channel.

I'll wait & see before calling out a favorite.


Tampa Bay said: What is surprising to me is I do not see any of the faces from MNASM or ANTM.

I know! Until I saw Erika's name, I thought she was Natalie from the most recent cycle of ANTM. Thank God it's not Natalie. I couldn't take another minute of her.

I would, however, love to see Allison (also from the most recent cycle).

I'm holding judgment until the show starts. Then I'll be judging away.


Damn, I wanted to see some models from ANTM and MMASM. It's always cool to see what they can do away from the competition. Oh well, maybe next time...


I'm with Summer. Why on earth do we have scans and snapshots included? I don't care how "new" a model might be, if someone's putting together a show about modeling, have a freakin' session! (Like they do with the designers.)


God, given half a chance, people will complain about ANYTHING.


Can you imagine what Amanda could have done on a show like this? Her strong personality stood out amoung every seasons' models of PR, she'd have gotten her own bloody tv show if she'd have had this opportunity!

Donna in Seattle


Here's hoping that PR6 will be a season that I have to watch the episodes multiple times, like I did with Season 3 (when I first discovered PR). I think the addition of the model segment is a great idea. Can't wait to hear the trash talk about the designers and each other!


I hope the models pick their designer each week instead of the other way around!


That group shot looks way Photoshop pastiche. Doesn't Lifetime have a group photo for PR?


Holy shit! I want Fatima!


Girls with birds (or chicks with chicks) tend to be pretty nuts, so my vote is for Valerie as the crazy one.


Celine, Fatma, Yosuzi and Vanessa are fabulou and I love them.

Fatma will be the new Camilla/Nazri

and Valerie will be the Morgan.


Matar means "to kill" in Spanish. A sign?


Wow, what's with the ugliness toward Valerie? She has a strong look and loves her pet bird. The negative comments are nasty, shallow and based on nothing. I hope she doesn't read this blog. Come on, people. You haven't even seen episode one yet.

I love this blog, but sometimes the comments are unecessarily ugly.


Personally I think that Tanisha might be the "fat" one, simply because she appears to have some curves (as in the good kind).

I think that Erika is beautiful, and why are there so many weird names this year? And yes, Fatma is indeed fierce in that photo. Now to see if she can walk the walk as well...


Fatma is a goddess. Love her!!! Are they paying them?


Kudos to Lifetime for putting all this information out for us. It'll be fun to start watching the show knowing these people a little better. I feel like models barely get any air time.


I like Kojii, Fatma looks like the runway coach from ANTM - one of the Jays, I think?? She looks like a man. I don't get why that is fabulous.


Vanessa is gorgeous!


"Anonymous said...

She looks like a man? You have a very narrow definition of what's feminine and/or beuatiful.


MORGANZA DRAMA!!


I'm sorry, but is anyone looking at Tanisha? She seems beautiful and badass, like she doesn't just walk but claim the runway with each skyscraper step. Perhaps a model catfight may also finally make its way to a PR season? Hey it IS on Lifetime now- isn't that like a prerequisite?


vanessa is so gorgeous!

I can tell you, as an owner of two very demanding pampered macaws, that yes I am a little nuts. :)

That said, I think Valerie is beautiful. She has a strong presence, and my guess is she'll model very well on the runway.

I like Erika and Matar. I hope they can walk.

TampaBay


FYI..PR and Heidi just get Emmy nods again.

Now, when will they nominate Tim?


there are girls that say, "look at me." there are girls that are saying, "look at the clothes." and then there are the girls that can say in a photo, "look at me in these clothes." those few are the winners.


I am rooting for Erica because she is one of my running buddies! We ran the Chicago marathon together this year and she was such a joy to train with--she's a cool girl who is down-to-earth and freaking gorgeous!


Vanessa (no, not that one)

I don't get all the Fatma votes. Not that her picture isn't interesting but criminey you can't see anything but her silhouette.

Poor Celine. Is that really the best picture they could find? Really? All things being unequal, I"m going to say I like the girl with the pet African Grey (the "dead bird").


Why don't the other reality shows( ANTM, MMSM or TFS) get the caliber of models that PR does? I watch the show as much for them as I do the designers.


Lisa is our pick, she has it all...even if she smokes up the home tour! GO KY...woohooo!!!

Vick and Lile


LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA BLADESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS


LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA LISA BLADESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS


I think all the girls bring something to the runway but if I had to pick I would say LISA she is not only pretty but her eyes tell a story just watch and see I have interviewed her .

Coach Kendrick

Hey Erika, Go for it! You look GREAT! Love the show PR and watch it all the time. Looking forward to season 6 to watch you strut your stuff on the runway. Remember this name (guys)because you will see it again! E R I K A (with a K)! Knock it out of the park and slam dunk the $25,000.


Kojii is rather rad if I do say so myself.

She looks a tad like Zooey Deschanal.

Kate, and Tara also amazing.

Gotta love the dorks.


Kaly, Lisa and Tanisha is on the final.
