Season eight of Project Runway premiered last night — did you watch? The big twist was that the first episode was actually the last phase of the audition process. As if that wasn't brutal enough, there were so many more unexpected turns that Heidi and Tim clearly loved delivering to the hopefuls. One exciting change is that the accessories wall is now stocked by Piperlime, not Bluefly. I don't want to give anything else away, but for those who watched, join our Project Runway Fanatics group now, and vent away!
There are at least 10 things to look forward to on the new season of Project Runway, but is a more daring Heidi Klum wardrobe one of them? Hopefully! We're all about taking fashion chances, and if anyone can pull off edge, PR hostess Heidi can. She wore this avant-garde black and white jumpsuit combo to last night's NYC premiere and chose red suede platforms for a pop of color. Meet the new season's competitors, watch the premiere tonight, and tell me: does Heidi pull this off?
