Project Runway designers announced

Detroit in the house! PR season five contestant Joe, 41, from Troy, Mich.

Bravo announced this morning the designers and guest judges for the fifth season "Project Runway" which debuts at 10 p.m. on Wednesday, July 16.

At first glance, there's no one with obvious Carolina ties among the cast of designers. On a personal note, I'm fired up to see someone represent Detroit (I grew up on the eastside of Detroit and the eastern burbs).

The most exciting info released was the list of guest judges, which include: PR alum Austin Scarlett, Natalie Portman, Sandra Bernhard, Apolo Ohno, Brooke Shields, RuPaul, Rachel Zoe, Diane Von Furstenberg, Francisco Costa (creative director at Calvin Klein), Cynthia Rowley and LL Cool J.

Tim Gunn, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia and Heidi Klum are back in action too.

What do you think about all the pre-debut secrecy?


  1. I smell lameness.

    Wait, is that the sound of a shark jumping?

  2. Sad but true. I think the shark jumped after Tim and Andre got back from Red Lobster. It was funny then..takes itself too seriously now.

  3. I don't think it was so much secrecy, but more concern for the bottomline. Bravo didn't want to give up ad space promoting a show that's leaving next season. They fought hard to keep PR, but lost it to Lifetime - and didn't take it very well.
