what did we wait for: project runway

so project runway is beginning again this fall august 20, 10 pm (two days after i land - except i don't have a tv...ah well) and as part of the summer net surfing i've been doing (terribly little lately as a result of a 40 hour work week..) i checked out all 16 designer's portfolios online and came up with these three as my favorite - go skip over to bravo's website and check em out for yourself and tell me what you think

the site has 44 short questions asked and answers from each designer as well including "favorite colors" and "favorite model" and encompassing "what kind of child were you like" "what kind of housemate are you" - interesting fodder to chew...

there are also really cool home videos / audition tapes / closet tours online available for each designer...but as a result of not being in the usa i can't view them...
