Bad designers, cheap runways, it''s sooo low budget. \
And I hate her always being such an ice queen.
I love that they renewed The Fashion Show, which was a complete fiasco. But they''d lost Project Runway, so they needed it.\
So they recreated Project Runway this season.\
Iman = Heidi Klum\
Isaac = Tim Gunn\
It''s all about the dynamics of the workroom. Yawn.\
I''m watching it on DVR delay, and I''m already bored senseless.
Kelly Rowland, full of Mallomars and regret
Damn!! I missed the show but it seems I didn''t miss much. But it beats that last show Bravo had with those flaming twin hosts!
I heard they are bringing back LAUNCH MY LINE!\
But again, it''s Bravo saving face. Losing PROJECT RUNWAY to Lifetime, and watching it succeed there, is a major humiliation.\
They are determined to have a successor, no matter how shitty it is.

But PR was a real mess this season - the last season I''ll watch and I don''t think I''m alone. Gretch the wretch should have gone home a lonnnnggg time ago and yet she was - as foreshadowed all season - the winner. Quelle bullshit! I haven''t seen this one yet but I had high hopes that it would be more like the original PR''s. What a shame - Isaac M can be so entertaining, but another Heidi is already two more than anyone could stand.
The thing about Project Runway is that the show is showing its age. Bravo has managed to keep Top Chef fresh and Work of Art was a huge hit for them. I think they need to let the fashion thing go.
I mostly agree, R4. Not saying that apeing PR was the way to go. But it was a safe choice for them.\
There have been a hundred RUNWAY ripoffs and none of them has ever really succeeded. \
I think the format has run its course, as R5 said.
I liked it. Iman is a bit camp, and more than a little silly--but I prefer it to Heidi''s little girl voice. And the idea of forcing them to work in teams every week is genius.%0D\
I''ll keep watching. %0D\
But I can''t sit through that ghastly Top Chef Desserts shit. Even I have limits.
Doesn''t matter if the show is shit; the queers will watch.
I watched it. There''s some talent and there''s lots of bitchiness to enjoy.\
I liked it better than PR, actually.
I know who Iman is. Because I''m a gay man addicted to fashion.\
But the producers are assuming everyone in middle America know who Iman is, and give a shit.\
I think most people have no idea who the imperious, middle-aged black chick is. At least Isaac shills on QVC regularly.
I liked it too...
"In other news, David Bowie, married a man... sorry, I mean Iman."
I don''t have cable. I was able to watch PR because Lifetime posted it on its website the next day. Does anyone know if Bravo will do that? Hulu?
"It''s not a tomahto OR a tomato. It''s YELLOW."
That yellow/diamante dress was HIDEOUS. And cheap looking.
Eduardo should have won. He''s adorable!
I know everyone will trash this show, but I loved watching and listening to Iman rip the designs apart! She has a lot of power in her voice.
"thees is a fash-on ee-mergen-cie and i''m calling for-a an evax-su-ay-shun."%0D\
Imam: classic & timeless. and oh so CAMP!
Iman has turned herself into a horrid caricature of Cruella de Ville. She is trying waaaayyyyyyy too hard. And failing miserably. Bring back Kelly Rowland. At least she didn''t make me want to vomit everytime she started mugging for the camera like this hot mess.

Honey, how do you live?
do ya''ll think david b. still fucks her? i bet they both be stinky down there.
Damn! Calvin is an asshole! I''d totally fuck and destroy his holes. Yumers!
You''re out of fashion! I loved that part of it!
I have worked with Iman and she is actually a warm, gracious person. It''s perplexing to watch her struggle to be mean on this show.
Yeah, I agree-the problem is Iman. She doesn''t seem authentically cruel. She''s a caricature. It''s painful to watch this performance. Why couldn''t the producers just let her be herself? In all the interviews I''ve seen of her, she never gives off any sort of bitch vibe. She seems funny, smart and down to earth. (Well, as down to earth as a supermodel married to David Bowie can be.)
[quote]But the producers are assuming everyone in middle America know who Iman is, and give a shit.\
Sweetie, no one at Bravo thinks this show will attract 20 million viewers. Bravo knows their audience and is just trying to fill the "Project Runway" hole they let slip away.
I liked Cesar, and I''m glad he won. But I''m surprised that no DL''ers have yet mentioned his seriously jacked-up teeth!
is Isaac the go-to guy for bad cable shows? is it because he''s a recognized face? he''s awful in front of the camera? anyone remember his Oxygen channel talk-show? unwatchable%0D\
and Iman...please...honestly woman...just go away...yea yea we get it....the whole Rosa Parks of modeling...as you claim every chance you get...awful speaking voice...boring, awkward...and of no current relevance in fashion today....she was a big model in the 70''s, some of the 80''s....time to move on...the party is over
Totally disagree about Isaac, he''s very funny and relaxed and sexy on camera and I loved his Oxygen show, don''t know why it wasn''t successful. He should revive that concept and ditch the scary, ugly Iman.
I hate her stupid accent. She tries to sound fierce, but ends up sounding like a retard.\
Case in point: "Eet ees a fashion emergency that nids an evacooation."\
I want to like Isaac M but he is so freaking annoying. In a one-time role as guest judge, fine, but not as a costar appearing in every episode.
Isaac is a breath of fresh air, he''s honest, insightful and very witty. Deserves his own talk show, another stab at one, with a new format.

You bitches better hope that Iman isn''t reading this thread.
Issac seems terrifed of her. There was a scene last night during the judging, and Issac was being diplomatic in his criticism. Iman cut him off and said something like "YOU MEAN IT WASN''T ANY GOOD" and he meekly said, "yes."
Isaac Mizrahi said on Wendy Williams yesterday that Ryan from A-List does his hair.
Gurl, we can tell.
Isaac has a hot tight hole
I liked it, but I worship the runway that Iman walks on. Besides being fierce, she''s married to David Bowie.\
That said, since I hated Kelly Rowland the previous season, at least they got someone who is involved in Fashion, not just someone who has attended many shows, as Isaac stated about Kelly whenever he introduced her. I know Iman''s ice queen persona is a bit, but it''s entertaining enough to keep my interest.
Y''all are mean. I thought Iman was a lot of fun. And I still like Project Runway a lot too.
"I wake up every morning, want to be a nice person, but by three o''clock the bitch come out."
The show was ok, Iman is a bitch tho
R42 - Ryan''s salon is just houses away from where Isaac lives.
Iman is the biggest reason not to watch. She''s an absolute farce.
R5, Work of Art is is NO way a hit. It did weak numbers.
Iman is a nasty cunt bitch whore!
It did 0.87 million viewers after a big ad campaign. Consider that Proj Run does 3+ million.
Isaac must be on new medications. Otherwise He would be in bed in a fetal position with the drapes drawn and a loaded pistol on the night stand.

How DARE any of you plebes criticize Iman? As Tom & Lorenzo say, "Bow down, bitches!"
Judging from comments - Iman is the show. It will d o well because people either love her or hate her - and you know the haters will keep on watching.
r53 dish! you can''t just leave us hangin'' like that. isn''t isaac married with kids? yeah, i know. i bet he is a totally neurotic mess. please give examples.%0D\
R28, I did notice one of his teeth had a strange spot of it. I felt bad for him; probably doesn''t have dental insurance or the money to fix it.
I like Imam and I like her comments. She says the things I am thinking while I watched it. At least they don''t have Nina Garcia on there. Speaking of Nina, what is this Marie Claire magazine she''s at now? Sounds like a version of the magazine Seventeen.
Having seen Iman on Project Runway Canada, I look forward to this season of The Fashion Show (the last was a total train wreck.) On PRC, Iman was wonderful - she could be imperious, but she could also be very down to earth and very funny and she knew what she was talking about. I actually thought she was better than Heidi.
Also, I do feel sorry for someone who has the best dress but is on the wrong team. It just feels so unfair, but, hey, that''s the show.
Haven''t seen this mess yet but Iman was great on Project Runway Canada, so anyone who disses her is a cunt and a whore.\
If they want to boost these fashion shows, they should do away with auditioning nobodies and instead try to get in touch with promising young designers who are already starting out in the industry.
I get the feeling that it will be like survivor. They have two fashion houses now, but they will merge at some point for maximum drama. \
Well, I''ve only watched one episode but I''m already hooked after crazy Calvin''s fight with that waif-looking girl. This is going to be fun.
r59 - Iman was a pretty good catch for Project Runway Canada, though she always sounded like she was fed her lines and acted like she was slumming it.
Calvin, calvin, calvin!
"Haven''t seen this mess yet but Iman was great on Project Runway Canada, so anyone who disses her is a cunt and a whore"\
Or a fag and a slag?
That was brilliant. They guaranteed that I will watch next week to ses how each team does.
Calvin makes my blood boil like no other reality tv show cast member ever has.\
Formula for ratings hit!
every syllable is subtitled....
I''m thoroughly enjoying it. I love Iman''s directness, and both she and Isaac seem so much smarter and sharper than the PR judges.\
Calvin is vile. Such a wonderful villain.
I wonder how Isaac feels about taking a major back seat while Iman is the centerpiece of the season. %0D\
I get a kick out of her, but I feel like they''re working a bit strenuously to make Iman "happen."
Any word on why Iman wanted to blow up Portland?
I am loving this show. Last night''s fashion show really was very close--though I think the Grunge Girl''s design should have been one of the final two. As much as I dislike Calvin, his skirt (especially the back) was ravishingly beautiful.
I adore Iman in this show - she is a camp delight - and we''re beginning to see more than just her hard side. When Tamara was eliminated, there was that long camera shot of Iman and Isaac holding hands, as if to say "I was hoping she would do well, but alas....."\
Of course, David stayed because he is handsome and having that flirtation with Dominique, even though his inarticulateness and his bad design made him the obvious choice for elimination. Once again, ratings stunts win out over true talent.
[quote]As much as I dislike Calvin, his skirt (especially the back) was ravishingly beautiful.%0D\
The general praise of that outfit proved beyond any doubt that I know nothing about fashion.
