Be sure to check out Diana's blog for new photos of the designs she showed at "Seamless." (Thanks for the heads-up, Joe.) Be on the lookout for the bright green shirt of BPR's own Christine as well.
Here is a link to a great article about Emmett.
(Thank you, Allison.)
This is my favorite part:
For menswear designer McCarthy, who had never seen the show, the casting process happened swiftly, and took a bit of prompting.
"I was at my office and my friend called me up and said she was reading on the Internet about auditions for "Project Runway." She said 'I wouldn't send anybody other than you on this audition, because you make decisions really quickly, you make really good TV. I think you should do it,'" McCarthy remembers, adding that having second thoughts was not an option, as filming began two weeks after his first audition.
Many reality show contestants eager to take part in a series spend time studying up on their favorite show, but McCarthy believes that if he had seen a "Runway" episode, he would have never auditioned.
Bunking with the other design candidates in Manhattan's posh Atlas studio apartments, McCarthy explains that between field trips to select fabrics and the tight deadlines imposed to complete garments, there wasn't much time left for sleep. "(We worked) 20 hour days," he says. "(The cameras) were in your face every single waking moment."
I still remember the priceless scene where Emmett doesn't recognize Rob. Now we can understand why.
Meanwhile, here is a link to the Today Show interview with Andrae for anyone who missed it. Doesn't he look great? And couldn't anyone have come up with better interview questions? Grrrrrr....
Oh,and Grace has been spotted at Fashion Week.
That's all the news for now!
