Project Runway Season 8 Premiere; On the Road with Austin and Santino


Project Runway Season 8 premiers tonight (9 EST/PST)! Will you be watching? We’ll be tuning in for our Tim Gunn fix and for 90 minutes of meet and greets with the new brood of designers — all 17 of them. Can’t wait? Check out their bios and portfolios here. This is a season of firsts. The first time in Project Runway history that the finalists won’t show at the Bryant Park tents because, as you know, New York Fashion Week is moving to Lincoln Center. The first time a contestant will be auf’d before he/she even gets to unpack (ouch). The first time Piperlime will be the new Accessories Wall partner (adios, Bluefly). Heidi’s no longer a blonde (gasp!). Oh, and Nina Garcia is preggers with her second baby (cheers!) and Selma Blair will be judging the premiere episode with Heidi, Michael and Nina. In related news, did you know that Models of the Runway is out and On the Road with Austin and Santino is in? It will air on Thursday nights after Project Runway at 10:30 EST/PST and is an Oprah and Gayle’s roadtrip meets What Not to Wear. O.M.G.
