Tonight I made the mistake of accidentally flipping to Project Runway on Bravo. This show is seriously addictive. I feel less guilty after a reviewer on NPR's Fresh Air gave it a nice review. It's NPR people.
I'm not sure how far into the new season it is yet, but I do have one pressing question:
What is up with Christian's hair?
Watching previous seasons of Project Runway has prepared me to expect certain style quirks from fashion designers.
Take Austin Scarlett from season one:
Slap some giant glasses on him and you have a younger, more flamboyant Tootsie.
Then you've got Santino Rice from season two, who looks like a flirty rabbi, but dresses like a gang member from a Jackie Chan movie:
And then there was last season's Jeffrey, who had the One Ring apparently tattooed around his neck:
All pretty eccentric, but this season's Christian takes the cake with a hair style that actually infuriates me. I'm only somewhat embarrassed to admit that I yelled at the screen at the first sight of him.
I haven't seen enough of this season to know if Christian is a good designer, but it may be irrelevant. I can't take anyone seriously who mistakes the side of their head for the back.
The picture above doesn't do it justice.
Watch some video for the full effect.
