Project Runway Returns: One Day it was on Bravo, the Next it was on Lifetime

By  | 

We waited, we hoped and we prayed, and tomorrow night our fashion prayers will be answered. Project Runway returns to the airways on the Lifetime network. We can only hope the show remains the same. I can’t wait to hear Tim utter the words, “This worries me.” Some of the best moments on past seasons have been when he said these words to contestants like Vincent, Kane, Kenley and Santino. Despite his gentle warnings, his words usually fell on deaf ears. You could tell from their reactions that they did not believe him. Kane loved his Vegas showgirl look, Vincent thought the glue bottle was necessary and Kylie thought the mermaid, fish scale gown was beautiful. Tim really should learn not to interfere with genius! 🙂 Genius I say!

So, mark your calendars fashion lurvers. Tomorrow night, our favorite designers from past seasons will face off for a fashion showdown. Project Runway airs Thursday August 20 @ 8pm ET/ 7pm Central on Lifetime. To stay up to date on all things runway, check out one of my favorites, the Project Rungay blog. Tom and Lorenzo tell it all! 🙂

New Tim “bon mots” from tonight’s episode:

“This looks like a Halter Diaper”
” The Big Butt thing is a Big Butt Thing”
“Oh, just let it go….”

P.S. I am loving that Runway is in Los Angeles this season at the Fashion Design and Merchandising Center downtown.

    Finally! I feel like I've been in withdrawal without my Gunn saying, “Make it work.” Three little soothing words.

    I know it's SUCH a guilty pleasure. The world is a good place when Tim says, “Carry On”!

    Did you watch last night? Thoughts?? I personally loved it! The move to LA and to Lifetime was seamless, IMO; the show still retains the same essence.

    Hey Target-Addict, yes I watched it, and I thought it was great.
    The show is intact in it's new California location.
