This report came in from Christine who wrote to us even before she posted her experience on her own blog!
so i was there yesterday and it was fabulous! i saw everyone (including austin, and melissa his model from last year, she couldnt have been sweeter) and jay and kara saun. even collier strong was behind me in line! i said hi to him shyly :) michael kors, nina garcia, debra messing, even heatherette! and four of the fab five of queer eye! the only ppl i saw missing were wendy pepper and tim gunn. i was one foot away from anne hathaway!! *swoon* it was total star struckedness.
i was sitting next to david paul, nick's partner of 14 years, who was absolutely darling, and also enjoyed meeting marla's friend donna who came up from bethlehem, pa for the show.
i will blog the entire experience soon (on bliu blog and how everyone was (basically they were just as they seemed on the show, andrae v. enthusiastic, nick as sweet as can be, gentlemanly emmett, lupe super smiley, etc. and all in good spirits esp from 3 nonstop days of reunion filming i can imagine ) but i have some pix up here.
i can email to anyone interested higher res versions of any of the photos (2048 x 1536) if you want to zoom in.
i didnt take any pix of the actual runway action (since i figured the press would do a better job anyway) and because i was so awestruck at the clothes. it was such an emotional thing, i almost cried! esp knowing that these designers really put their souls on the line, and you know all their energies and love and passion were embodied in these pieces.
chloe's enormous fam is so cute (she has 7 sisters!) and heidi is the most beautiful woman ever, and very light-hearted and happy. she was goodhearted when they had to refilm the opening sequence, and heidi teased, 'what is this? the cameras werent on? we have to do this again? baloney!' with a smile. she was adorable, and also esp. giving interviews to the press in german afterwards.
anyway, enjoy!! if you have some questions for now, i'd be happy to divulge. it was a wonderful wonderful experience, and i feel so lucky. i'll be thrilled to share my story with BPR readers.
Wow, Christine! Thanks for sharing with us. Hugs to you from all of the readers of Blogging Project Runway!
