Darlings, grab your passports and get your ass to the international gates because you’ve got an appointment in Shanghai!
Bar Rouge, Shanghai
We’ve had a couple of tables reserved, as you can see, but the seats are gonna fill up fast, so wrap up whatever you’re doing, grab your heels and makeup bag, drop the pets off at the kennel and the kids with Child Protective Services, and hit that door labeled “OUT” as hard as you can. First round’s on us, but pack your imaginary Black Card just in case you get the urge to do something frivolous or want to pick up some jewelry along the way.
Or we could all just go to the TASTY KING RESTAURANT, INC. and get seats by the window (assuming there is one) so we can watch Tim Gunn scare a bunch of designers with his stern but loving taskmaster ways.
One of these seasons, a departing designer with a sense of how to make an exit will sing “To Sir, With Love” to Tim as they slowly ascend to the workroom to clean out their space. Someday this dream of ours will come true.
“THIS RUNWAY DOESN’T JUST BARK … IT BITES.”
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! In a world where reality show promos sound like trailers for apocalyptic action movies, maybe someone in charge should stop and consider whether “This runway … bites” is the way they want to go on the messaging.
What’s on the real-world menu for your Project Runway viewing experience? We bet a bunch of you just got a hankering to order Chinese, didn’t you? Your assignment in the comments section is to rewrite the lyrics of “To Sir, With Love” to be Tim- and Project Runway-specific. Alcohol will make this project more fun.
