It's too soon to judge the new 'Project Runway' contestants, but...
The big premiere of â€œProject Runwayâ€ (Thurs. July 28 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime) seems so far away, but rest assured, it will be on us faster than a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress. Now, thanks to a new article in Us Weekly, weâ€™ve gotten a peek at the new designers whoâ€™ll be competing on the show. While we donâ€™t have much to go on beyond name, age and the assorted fun fact, that isnâ€™t going to stop us from weighing in on our very, very early favorites (and a few wild guesses at whoâ€™s going home). So letâ€™s begin this thoroughly unscientific, just-for-fun stab at whoâ€™s getting aufâ€™ed and whoâ€™s not.
Pros: Heâ€™s a graduate of New Yorkâ€™s Parsons design school
Pros: Sheâ€™s an intimates designer for Target
Joshua Christensen, 29, Los Angeles
Pros: He says he has years of pent up creativity waiting to be unleashed.
Pros: He designed a menâ€™s suit jacket that was featured on Italian Vogueâ€™s Web site.
Cons: Sheâ€™s from Portland (we havenâ€™t gotten over the nightmare that was Gwetchen). Her first clothing designs were for her Barbie at age 8.
Who are your very, very unscientific favorites to win? And get ready for "Project Runway"Â fantasy league, whoot!Â Sign ups begin this week!
