Project Runway

It is a little ridiculous how much I love this show - hopeful clothes designers go to New York, produce designs under short time lines and with crazy limitations, competing to go to fashion week. I generally base my attire on what I can comfortably wear into houses that haven’t been cleaned since the 70’s. So here are some great quotes!
Tim Gunn, nicest man in the world, and mentor to the designers: Designer, “I think my design looks like crap.” Tim, “I'm not going to debate that.” “I hate hot pants, but they're very now.”
“Don’t bore Nina!!” Referring to one of the judges. Nina’s response to the design, “Pretty can be boring.” “You just have to say all these things on the runway: ‘Nina, I wanted her to look like she had a big fat ass.’”
Designer doing a dead on imitation of Tim’s voice and mannerisms, “Designers, up until now you all sucked. However, go out there and kick butts!”
Michael Kors, judge on the show: “Next thing you know, it's big button earrings and you're on 'The Facts of Life.'” "If a guy was 7'3" it would be a fabulous fit." “That was so Paris hooker 50's.”
Designer, doing a dead on imitation of Michael’s voice and mannerisms “ ‘She looks like... like a baboon's ass exploded all over her backside!’ Okay Michael, what else?”
“Don’t do the horse thing. I hate that.” Designer telling his model not to do the typical “model walk” using exaggerated steps.
"There are enough rhinestones." "We bought four million bags of rhinestones, we will put them on till our fingernails bleed." "She's a beauty queen, not a disco ball!"
“I know that this challenge is about accessorizing the dog, but it's so lame.” He was kicked off the show for cheating! He had hidden pattern books in his room.
Designer talking to his model, “I cannot take on your issues from childhood.”
“I'm really thrilled, because it looks like a cocktail dress... albeit a cheap, tacky cocktail dress that a hooker might wear, but nonetheless it still looks like real clothes.”
“Where the hell is my chiffon?!?”
“I don't think smashing her boobs is a flattering look.”
“I even made a white girl look like she had some ass. That's how damn sexy my dress is.”
