Articles for The Fashion Show Season 2

If you thought the world was running low on aspiring fashion designers, you thought wrong! There‘s still enough for Project Runway, and for every Project Runway knockoff Bravo can throw at us to make sure we know they miss it. I miss it, too, Bravo. Project Runway was the first show I ever got excited about, and the original Fashion Show (with Kelly Rowland, remember?) and Launch My Line just couldn‘t measure up. Is The Fashion Show: Ultimate Collection the answer? Uhhhhh maybe not. Let‘s talk about what works and what doesn‘t based on this week‘s premiere.IT WORKS: The concept. If there‘s a fashion-based show, especially if it‘s a skill competition, we‘re going to watch it. Or we‘ll at least check it out until we forget about it. The Fashion Show is similar enough to Project Runway for us to watch and know what to expect, but different enough to avoid a lawsuit.  Read more »
So much to be thankful for this week! I‘ll try to keep it as Bravo-related as possible, which shouldn‘t be too hard. But I would like to mention that Robyn‘s "Body Talk, Pt. 3" EP came out on the 22nd, and the first two season of Damages are on Instant and I‘m officially, completely, Ali-Larter-versus-Beyonce Obsessed. But here are the things on Bravo this week that I can‘t get over.Kelly Ripa and Mark Conseulos on Watch What Happens LiveI swear Andy Cohen has magical powers. He is capable of making me like almost everyone he has on his show (exceptions: the Salahis and Patti LaBelle who was just nuts. Also I like Kim Zolciak better on RHOA, but we‘ll get to that). I never thought much of/about Kelly and Mark before but now I like them! And look at what Kelly‘s wearing! Love it! Read more »
Yes, please! With a lot of my favorite shows ending or going on hiatus, Bravo is serving up all new episodes and this week we get a new episode of Watch What Happens Live every night! Monday night he had Rebecca Romijn and Kenan Thompson in the clubhouse and it was surprisingly awesome. Last night he had Iman and Diane von Furstenberg and it was surprisingly not awesome. BUT tonight Tom Colicchio and Amy Sedaris will be in the clubhouse and I could not be more excited.But know what else we have to talk about? The Real Housewives on The Fashion Show! The designers had to design for The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Orange County. The challenge was to make them look classy and not like hookers. Still, the New Jersey Housewives told Teresa that her dress (designed by Calvin) looked like something they‘d wear at Scores.  Read more »
This week in Bravo programming, there were a few moments when I realized I had NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON. In a good way, of course. The best example of this came from The Millionaire Matchmaker finale. Stacy, one of Patti‘s many nemeses, came back asking for another chance. Her last date didn‘t go well and made her look crazy, and this one turned out pretty much the same way.Here‘s how the date started, with Stacy showing her date this weird B-grade video she made called, "The Lingerie Script." Read more »
