We Saw PRS6 Episode 1 and You Didn't!

Neener Neener Neener! We got a screener!




Now, Lifetime will have our balls if we give anything away (and truth be told, the screener ends just before the judging begins, so we don't know who's in and who's auf), but bitches? We have one thing to say (and it ain't "sashay, shante"):

THEY'RE BACK!!!!!

You have NO IDEA (but you will in a week) how wonderful it is to see all these people again. Even just hearing the familiar musical cues again was thrilling.

Let's see. What CAN we reveal? Well, we can reveal that a lot of our impressions of the designers were dead on (pre-judging works). We can reveal that the production values are gorgeous; everything is beautifully lit and shot. We can reveal that, because it's L.A., all the spaces are HUGE. Seriously; huge apartments, huge workspace, huge runway set. We can reveal that, at least so far, any fears about the show changing are unfounded. Yes, it's L.A. and yes, the first challenge is VERY L.A. (as is the guest judge), but it's still the show we've all come to know and love. Nothing of any importance has changed in terms of the style and feel of the show.

As for the designers, they're (as we already knew) a colorful bunch with a range of talent levels, styles, and personalities. With the exception of one or two of them, there was no attitude on display. They were all hugely grateful to be there and even a little in awe of the whole thing. One of them even called Tim "Mr. Gunn," which was kind of adorable. And speaking of Mr. Gunn, he's his usual warm, mentoring, fabulous self. There were tears (of course) and Tim was right there to give out hugs.

As for the clothes, well, there was what you'd expect from the first episode of PR: 16 looks, reeking of stress and desperation, some were fabulous, some were tacky, some were head-scratchingly weird, and some were just plain tragic.

What else? Oh! Heidi wore two gorgeous outfits (We know, right?), it was really weird to hear Nina referred to as Fashion Director of Marie Claire (and Heidi's accent mangles "Marie Claire"), and the Duchess unveiled a fetching shade of nuclear orange that outdoes any previous shades.

In short, it's back; it looks fantastic; and none of y'all have anything to worry about. BRING. IT. ON, Lifetime! Wooo!

HOORAY!! That will make the end of summer somewhat bearable!


FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!!


OMG!!! I LOVE IT!!!

Just did the gay gasp! when it popped up on my twitter!!!

Looking forward to it!


Good to know nothing changed. I can't wait!!!


THIS IS SO COOL!!!!


I hate you bitches : )


Awesome! I can't wait to see La Nina again, it's been freaking forever.


EEEEEEEEEEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

I can't wait!!!!!!!!!


One week...one week...

Will the fabulous TLounge be open?!


OMG! I can't wait!


Seven more days before life has meaning again.

I've decided to take a power nap as soon as I get home from work, and to start the cocktails at nine to set the mood.

Friday mornings are going to get real ugly in this anon's world.

Should I bring back my orig. screen name?


Does Michael Kors know that you guys call him the Persimmon Prince? Has he ever mentioned it?


I'm going to be on vacation next week - they'd better have Lifetime on cable in the woods of West Virginia.


Yes world, you may start spinning again.

Forget about Lifetime, if you hear the dueling banjos, RUN!!!!

Am I the only person who thinks this sounds a little dirty?

My life has been so dull with PR. I cannot wait to see!


back to back FAB posts. LMFAO!

you boys are just PRICELESS.

you have made my thursday!

LOVE YOU.


On the front I saw this post as the first tile, and my reaction was the same as the second tile.

Bitches ;)

Dan~


If every other post wasn't enough, this post deserves a drop in the tip jar! I'm off to make a donation, boys!


I'm so glad they didn't change anything. I can't wait to see episode 1.


Thanks for the encouraging post. We have let our fears go.


I don't care how fabulous the rest of the show is, nothing can mitigate the disaster that is Lindsay Lohan guest-judging. I'm guessing no one designed leather-knee-padded blowjob tights, so she doesn't like anything. *rolls eyes*


My cable company provides me with Lifetime HD. Bravo HD is always unavailable, for some unknown reason.

So this year, it's Project Runway in High Definition at long last!!!!

I'm actually more excited about the premiere of PRS6 than Mad Men.


another laura

"nuclear orange" heeeeee!

I can't believe how much I've missed this show.


So glad to hear your view and to have it be so positive! Can't wait for next week!


*squeal of delight* Can it PLEASE be time for it to start already???? I miss Mr. Gunn!


Yessssssssssss!!!!!

BTW, this is TO DIE:
"The Duchess unveiled a fetching shade of nuclear orange that outdoes any previous shades."

What a relief that Lifetime didn't bungle it out of the gate. Maybe there's hope after all...


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

Oh my, Duchess L'Orange is back and has not laid off the the tanning products.

Boys, thanks for the warning so that I won't have this happening:

"Something's wrong - Michael Kors is REALLY orange."

"Wait - I adjusted the color on the TV set. How about that?"

"No, now Nina is as pale as Tim, and you KNOW that's not right. Although her JBF hair is better than ever...."


*makes sweater-nipples, Dieter-style* I'm as happy as a little girl!

8/13/09 3:15 PM "nuclear orange" heeeeee!

I can't believe how much I've missed this show.


Correction. It's nucular.


Fantastic!!!!


I live in a world devoid of DVR, but you can bet your fashionable asses that my old, reliable VCR will be cued up with a new video tape and programmed to Lifetime for the evening. I cannot wait!


Any suggestions how us poor Canadians can get to see it without waiting the months it normally takes to begin airing here? If I have to wait in order to be spoiler-free, I'd even have to stop looking at this website.

GAHHHHHH...


Oh bitches I am so jealous of you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

**Heart leaps in joy for next week's premier <(^_^)>**


Can I borrow the dvd when you're
done with it?


"Sewing Siren said...

LOL. You're funny, SS.


Glad to hear that it hasn't changed, or better yet, it has changed for the better. Go Lifetime!


LifeTimeforHomos

Great news, bitches!!!


F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!!


So. Freaking. Excited!
I cannot wait for Heidi, Nina, Michael and Tim. The world was not the same without them!
Is it overkill to take the day off work to prepare?


I'm a little verklempt.


Of all the things that you wrote in your post, this touched me the most:

"and the Duchess unveiled a fetching shade of nuclear orange that outdoes any previous shades."

I can't wait!!!!!


Bless you.

Even your teasers are entertaining.

I am planning the beverage menu now.


Exhibit A -

"he Duchess unveiled a fetching shade of nuclear orange that outdoes any previous shades."


Boy, I love you so much. THIS is why I come here every day.


I absolutley cannot believe it's only one week away! I've got goosebumps just thinking of PRS6 Episode 1!

"And NO Real Hos of Wherever!"


A-fucking-men!!!!!!


BRING IT ON!! And for once I won't complain that getting old makes time pass more quickly!!

See you in the lounge, boys and girls! I wonder . . . hurricane or bloody mary, which would be more appropriate?


CanIGetYouAnything?

YAY!!!! Doing my happy dance now : )


Part of the reason I'm so excited for the show to start again is just to see the show, but part of the reason is that I can't wait to see your recaps! August 20th, why aren't you here already????


I just read through all the contestant's bios/auditions etc. Thanks gentlemen what a great job you have done. Can't wait. You are always ahead of the curve in my book.

GAHHHHHH...
You can find it very easily on youtube. Type in "Project Runway Season 6 Part 1". :]


well, this is definitely fabulous!!!!
i never watch Lifetime, and last night flipping channels i ended up watching Will and Grace re-runs and i was super shocked when I saw the commercials for PR6... it was great to see everybody! i only cringed when i saw LiLo, but i guess there's a little price to pay to see Tim, Heidi, La Nina and the Duchess, right?


oooh, Project Runway. And Mad Men. New. THE SAME WEEK! oh joy!


Lohan? Really? Good lord, why????

Then again, it is certainly well played if they are going for expectation management. Coherent and doesn't drag everything down= WIN!

Cant' wait boys, and who deserves a little peek more than you two?


The next question is how often Lifetime will repeat PR for those of us who will miss the first time through?


"Trish said...

I hope they rerun it a couple of times.


Thank you guys!!! Good to know!!


YES!!!!!!!!!!


My new To Do list for each week:

1. Watch Mad Men
2. Consume TLo's recap
3. Tap fingers and toes until Thursday.
4. PR, Models, and TLounge
5. Consume TLo's recaps
6. Rinse and repeat

Bring it on!!


This is so exciting, I don't even watch that much TV, PR is my favorite show and I can't wait to come here and read your hilarious posts. I've been reading you guys since S4. Love the blog!!!


mommyca said...

Same here, but I'll do it for Project Runway, especially now knowing that the show is the same.


Amen!!!!! Thanks, guys!


"and the Duchess unveiled a fetching shade of nuclear orange that outdoes any previous shades."

Never posted before but avid reader...this comment just was way to postworthy!!

Can't wait for the new season!!


So cool and what a relief, darlings!!!


yay i'm celebrating it with a bottle of wine


"There were tears (of course) and Tim was right there to give out hugs."


LOL Did Christopher cry a lot?


I don't know why - maybe based on their portfolios - I have a feeling we'll see a wide range of designs, from fabulous to tragic to WTH were you thinking?


I love that dress Heidi is wearing.


I am SO excited, thank you for the teaser :)


Can it really FINALLY! be one more week?!?! Time has stood still for so long... w - a - i - t - i - n - g...


I miss Tim so much!!!


Shut up! I am so excited!


Do you think that Nina is sending a subliminal message to Lorenzo by wearing the same Roland Mouret dress that she wore when she met him at The One Hundred book signing?


Cannot wait to read TLo's first screen cap of La Nina.

Clapping with glee!

This will be one of my happier summers. PR Australia is fab, PR Israel is interesting and OUR PR IS BACK!!!!

btw "the Duchess unveiled a fetching shade of nuclear orange that outdoes any previous shades." is why I keep coming back here daily.


Squeee!

"Duchess unveiled a fetching shade of nuclear orange that outdoes any previous shades."

Fucking LOVE you boys! And I am SUPER excited!!!!!


I heart Mr. Gunn....


Fortunately, we Canadians don't have to wait very long--it starts September 12 on Slice.


wow. i just cant wait until they invite you to be guest judges


Excellent! DVR ready to go!

That's cool. I hate having to rely on YouTube.


You're such a tease and the suspense is killing me.


Hooray for Lifetime for recognizing you boys and your clout.

I love August (it's my birthday month) and PR6 and Mad Men are the real icing on my cake.


Dennis, @3something pm ... *makes sweater-nipples, Dieter-style*

FALL.OVER.SCREAMING.

This is the best comment thread in the whole Internet fabric store.


I just realized with great horror that I don't get out of class on Thursdays until 9:00. I'll have to rush home!


Totally off topic here, but can I just say that while I think the dress Heidi is wearing in the first picture is nice, the fabric is making me rotflmao because it's almost the EXACT same pattern and colors as my nephew's car seat!

I so can't wait for the show, thanks as always you two! :)


And speaking of the Duchess, have you seen his Q&A in Vanity Fair this month?

Yes, we actually posted it here on our Facebook "fan" page. Feel free to join us there too; we've been posting lots of stuff (news, announcements, interviews, etc.) that didn't make the blog cut.


i saw kenley on the street in the garment district yesterday, so i've been particularly desperate for next season to start so i can get the tragedy that was PRS5 out of my head.

p.s. i love you guys.

Curse you Red Baron! I stalwartly refuse to visit facebook pages of those I do not personally know - there only being so many hours in a day - and you taunt me with what I am missing!

I am very tempted, and rather distraught.


SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Oh my word, how I have missed this show.

I am also psyched for the return of Alex!

Smorgasbord of fabulosity?

Mkay I just squeed all over the place.


Ooh, color me green! But did you also get a peek at the model show? The designers are at least given something to do all day, but the poor models are going to go stir crazy.

Do you know who designed the kiddie car seat Heidi's wearing? Or did she have Tim whip it up at the last minute from the one in the back of her Land Rover?


Oh, please please please

please me

and many other unfortunates

and somebody post to YouTube.

Please.

I am sorry guys but I have no idea what "JBF" hair is. Could someone enlighten me?

TampaBay


OMG...fabulous!! You guys are fabulous!!! Thanks for dangling that carrot before our hungry selves!!
I am SO excited PR will once again enter my hearth and home!! It will be like welcoming cherished family back!!! (Except for Lindsay Lohan, who I understand will be a celebrity judge...blech.)


C'est moi, c'est moi Lola

@ Tampa Bay:

Please see previous post on the Nina/Santino Smackdown.

JBF stands for 'Just Been F*****'

Much more entertaining than saying she has a lot of flyaways under the hot lights.....

I live in WV...YUP we've got Lifetime!!! But how rustic are you going? Whitewater Rafting? You should be good!

Can't Wait for the big show!!!


AOL had an interview w/ Heidi
Q: And one of the most controversial winners, Jeffrey Sebelia, is back as well ...

A: Jeffrey Sebelia -- he looked like he came from a movie set! I was saying he looks like David Spade in that movie ... what was it again? Dirt? 'Joe Dirt'! Yeah, 'Joe Dirt,' he looked kind of like that. [Laughs] He had grown this moustache ... he looked funny. I'm like, 'My God, what happened to you?'

From one native West "BY DAMN" Virginia Mountaineer to another....Charleston, Huntington, Pakersburg or Weirton?

OK, first the JBF reference was made about Susie Fogelson's outta control mane,* and now Nina Garcia. I am finding it hard to look at these women on my TV screen without blushing.

Sigh, I was kinda hoping for a TLounge on Sunday for Mad Men since I live in a Blue Law state. I guess I will have to whit knuckle it until next Thursday.


*not here, elsewhwere.


I don't have cable anymore... however, this gives me a reason to LOVE that PR is appearing on Lifetime: Lifetime puts their shows online. I can't wait!


I've said it before, but it bears repeating: YAY!!

I just found TLO a few months ago - I only watched the fashion b/c you were blogging it, and you made that entertaining - I can only imagin how wonderful my beloved PR is going to be with you to enrich my viewing experience! I'm in heaven! And now you tell me you're on Facebook - there goes the 3 hours of my day I previously was off the computer! lol!


mummy needs champagne

omigod omigod omigod oh my god oh my god omigod omiGAWD!

I can't WAIT!


http://www.mylifetime.com/on-tv/shows/project-runway/project-runway-schedule - for those who are asking about repeats, it'll re-air at 9pm Friday nights according to this. In fact, you can find out a lot about the show on Lifetime's site!


AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Thanks guys!
I have been counting the SECONDS!

Such a relief to hear that you guys weren't disappointed. I know I'm not the only one who was afraid they would ruin our beloved show. Can't wait!!!


i'm not dorothy gale

When I read your headline I thought (albeit briefly) "Oh you lucky shits!" Now of course I realize that we readers are the l.s. because you've taken away any trepidation. We want our old "Runway" and it looks like we've got it.

Counting down the hours.........


Gahhhhhhhh. I'm so pumped.


Realspacemodels

You know what I'm gonna miss about "The Fashion Show"?

NOT A DARN THING!

Bring on PR6! Thanks for the preview!


Nuclear Orange! I love it!!!


Nuclear Orange!!! I love it!!


Oh my stars, I can't wait. I've been purposely not reading too deeply about all the designers because I want some sense of surprise about getting to know them. I'm glad it still looks and feels the same. And I have to admit, even though Lifetime tried to de-gay the show in its promos, the sheer amount of extra content and web presence that it gives PR dwarfs anything Bravo did.

Maybe this won't be like getting a bitty old woman as the new schoolteacher after all...


I had read the repeated assurances that moving to Lifetime (and The Real World producers-GACK!)wouldn't change the show yet still I feared. And couldn't wait for the show to start naturally. So glad to hear from you it's true.

A screener that didn't reveal the winner? That's cold.


guys, check this newsweek interview with michael, nina, heidi & tim... god, i really looking forward to seeing them again on tv

http://video.newsweek.com/#?t=32985062001&l=32693648001


FIDM, isn't that Santino's alma mater? While I'm sad that they show isn't in NYC anymore, I'm glad it's BACK!

Has anyone been to the mylifetime.com PR site? I've read about all the characters and already have a favorite. And a bunch of not-favorites. Hope I'm not disappointed.


i wish that Christian Siriano could be a guest judge or something...
2 bad that my first day of classes is tomorrow, and my Mum won't let me stay up and watch it D= oh well, i can wait until the reruns X]


nuclear orange? I thought congress was banning nuclear proliferation and orange? Duchess must have gotten it shipped in from North Korea.


Why did Tim Gunn make a hard swallow when Heidi introduced him as the Chief Creative Officer for Liz Claiborne?
