Remember a few days ago when I blogged about the birthday present Heidi Klum was giving me? Turns out the present is twice the size. Heidi's giving me a Project Runway spin-off!
Premiering immediately after the new Project Runway is a brand new reality show on Lifetime starring memorable past Runway contestants Santino Rice and Austin Scarlett. Yes! Yes! Yes!
On the Road with Austin & Santino follows the designers to small towns throughout America where they will create "dream-come-true looks for special women in unique situations” according to Lifetime. Sounds like Oprah meets Runway meets What Not to Wear. Sounds AMAZING.
If you're unfamiliar, Santino was the baddest bad boy on the runway thus far. Forget about Jefferey's tattoos and that redheaded mom with the thirty kids. Santino was sneaky and got on everyone's nerves, including Tim Gunn's. His impression of the fashion master is perhaps what made him so famous during his time on Runway. It was immaculate.
Mr. Scarlett, on the other hand, was sweet and charming and a little bit whiny. He sticks in my mind as the guy who always seemed to be wearing lip gloss and who created an amazing dress out of corn husks during a grocery store challenge.
Both men were fantastic designers and proved themselves worthy of fashion success. I can't wait for them to bicker. Ten bucks says Santino makes Austin cry. I CAN'T WAIT.
