It’s finally happened, darlings. Project Runway has reached full-on America’s Next Top Model levels of camp and tacky:
We all saw it coming, didn’t we? Greasy naked people. Never a good sign.
But we have to admit, we’re loving the art direction here. Heidi looks both fabulous and hilarious. And we love the scissor throne and needle scepter. Some queen had a lot of fun coming up with dark fairy tale sewing imagery.We can’t help thinking they missed an opportunity to link Marie Claire with Marie Antoinette but that may have been too high-brow for their goals.
But weep, kittens. Weep for the man we all once knew as Tim Gunn. Forced into tight pants and – Jesus take the wheel – eyeliner; dressed like a gay cater waiter and ordered to pose like Heidi’s little performing monkey. Weep.
For that is a silent scream of anguish if ever we saw one.
Also, as if to confirm our expectations for the season:
We always said it was only a matter of time before they just set all the designers on fire or let a cheetah loose in the work room.
