OK, I don't know for a fact that it was fixed, and I do love Daniel V (and was rooting for him going in! I can prove it!) but c'mon -- Tim Gunn wrote the intro to Daniel's book, the show has been beaten up endlessly for not granting him the win during his season, and aside from that glorious black dress (truly -- I would kill to wear that dress), his other three looks were not better than anybody's. Maybe the fashion experts saw something I couldn't, as perusing Vogue once a month during a pedicure and occasionally glancing at Women's Wear Daily over some girl's shoulder on the subway in the morning doesn't really certify me (or you) as a fashion expert, but the fact remains that he strapped a pretend bomb to a girl's mid-section, and put a Danskin-looking jogging top on another one paired with an uneven bubble mini and beat everyone. Somehow. Somehow called shenanigans.
So the all-new-all-different Project Runway Season Six premiered last night in its new home on Lifetime, and aside from the new setting in Los Angeles, it really wasn't that different. Which would have been fine, it's still an entertaining show, except it was sandwiched between an additional two and a half hours of Runway -- a two-hour All-Star Challenge and a half-hour spin-off, Models of the Runway. I know we've all been missing the show, and under normal circumstances I would have been happy to get three hours of it, but when it feels like you're watching the same episode over and over again, it gets a little old.
