    Project Runway 8: Returns July 29: Bigger, Earlier (& Better we can hope)

    What the ? PR returning earlier than I'd expected (didn't E-so-so go weeping into the night just a week ago?) ... and super sized at 90 minutes an episode! Dunno if I'm ready for the Lane Bryant version of Project Runway ... er, I'm talking about the show, not the models. Doubting both my commitment threshold for PR "and" my faith that the editors will make the extra time "sing".

    Good luck with this, Heidi and Lifetime. You may need it.

    Good news is that moved up to 9 PM ET (from 10).

    Well its about time the show is about the BIG girl. I am so tired of having toothpicks for women shoved down my gullet.

    REAL women wear fashion too!!!

    um, the show is plus-sized, not the models.

    I think Austin and Santino have a show right after it.

    From what I've read they've just incorporated Models of the Runway into the show instead of making it a separate show. You couldn't make me watch Santino and Austin. Sounds like a nightmare.

    I love Austin, though. Santino, not so much. Unless he's doing his Tim imitation.

    Speaking of PR, Seth Aaron put out some very nice skull pins the other day. I immediately thought of Lep.

    I think people might get bored with ninety minute episodes. Die hard fans will watch, but the average viewer has a short attention span. I like the fashion side of the show, but I really don't want to waste an extra half hour watching petty drama, which is what the additional time will be spent on. I don't think this is a good move for Project Runway.

    I watched the Model show after the hour show so my guess is that more of the models will be incorporated into the 90 minutes. I'll try out the Santino/Austin thing.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Ack, I hope it is more on the designers and less on the models. That "Models of the Runway" show was a total snooze. Especially when there are more designers around, it would be nice to get an idea of what some of them are about/creating. In a lot of the early episodes in a season, about the only thing you see of some designers and their fashions is what comes down the runway.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    why are Austin and Santino paired up?
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Isn't ninagarcia like, 50 years-old?

    Or does she just look older because she's sitting in the reflection of Michael Kors' orange glow?

    That is what I thought. Maybe she's been sitting near Heidi too long and got hit by the fertility goddess by accident.

    Wikipedia says ... Ninotchka Garcia de Castellanos (May 3, 1965).

    She's not 50, but 45 is still unfortunately firmly in the "danger zone" for later-in-life-pregnancies. Fingers crossed that things go well for Nina and the baby. An article says that Nina had a baby boy in 2007, and apparently he was/is perfectly healthy.

    Apparently, she worked on Avatar's costume design team.
