Project Runway: Bow-Chicka-Bow-Wow
Cheers to you Bravo for finally understanding your Project Runway audience: girls and gays (and the occasional boyfriend suckered into watching). And I know I’m speaking on behalf of my girly girls and fashion loving flamo’s when I say, male models in their boxers briefs are exactly what we want to see on a Wednesday night (And their washboard abs didn’t hurt either).
Last night’s challenge was a first for Project Runway: design a menswear look for Today Show correspondent and former NFL player, Tiki Barber. And while the high-stress environment was fascinating to watch, I was more fascinated by the fact that Elisa refused to look at her model when he stripped down to his boxers- claiming that her beau is the only guy who she will touch/look at in his undies. I’m sorry what? Woman-I don’t care if your boyfriend is Brad Pitt, when a male model strips down to his skivvies- you pay attention!!
Also humorous was how Tiki Barber tried to show off his macho-ness. And while he is easy on the eyes, I could see right through that NFL exterior to the Metrosexual that lies within. Give me a break Tiki, You are a guest judge on Project Runway, who are you trying to kid? Not to mention his critiques of some of the clothes, and his (unexpected) adoration for the Kevin’s purple-euro inspired ensemble. Hmm.
The male models made this week’s episode a hit in my book. And Jack’s winning look was a huge success. Sure Carmen got the boot and it was kind of sad watching her face get into the squishy cry, but I didn’t peg her for a Bryant Park contender anyways.
