Quick Pic: The Emperor’s New Clothes

The new season of “Project Runway” premieres tomorrow night on Lifetime. So, as a stunt, they sent all the models with the Naked Cowboy around Times Square riding atop a double decker bus. While we thought leaving Bravo was backwards, now we’re wondering why did they get a dude who runs around nearly nude to promote a show about clothes? Hmm, I smell a challenge, designers.

Reality Show Contestants: The Sweatshop Workers Of The Acting World?

Popwatch reports: “This time, 20 people who are already successful in different lines of work — music mogul! CEO! — need only exhibit a ‘passion for fashion’ in order to compete for the chance to launch a clothing line.” Why, we have seen this before, in the form of Lindsay Lohan leggings, LL Cool J jeans, Lauren Conrad jersey dresses, and pencil skirts from Victoria Beckham! Oh, dear. Will you watch this come September, or have you had it with clothes made by amateurs? [PopWatch] Keep reading »
