The fourth season of Project Runway returns with another group of telegenic contestants intent on winning the $100,000 cash prize and the chance to jumpstart their careers as fashion designers. The 15 competitors include sensitive Ricky Lizdale, earth mama Kathleen Vaughn, and impishly adorable Christian Siriano. Thanks to his quirky looks, hip designs, and popular catchphrases (“fierce,” “ferosh,” “hot tranny mess”), Siriano became such a pop culture sensation that he was parodied by Amy Poehler on Saturday Night Live. Though it is full of drama and its share of cat fighting, Project Runway has always been a step above your run-of-the-mill reality series. Whereas The Hills relies on a coterie of frenemies to ramp up its ratings, Project Runway actually seems interested in the contestants and how they will succeed in life beyond the series. Hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, who exhibits a wry sense of humor while keeping the show moving at a brisk pace, the series is smartly entertaining. Fan favorite Tim Gunn returns, as does judge Nina Garcia. This season’s guest stars include fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker, who helps critique the contestants’ creations for her affordable Bitten line. But former football pro Tiki Barber is a scene stealer, appearing in an episode where the competitors have to design an outfit for him to wear on television. (Some of the pieces that the cast comes up with challenge the notion that Barber looks good in anything.) All 13 episodes from the Bravo series are included in this four-disc set. By the time Klum says auf wiedersehen to the runner up, most viewers will agree that the right contestant won. –Jae-Ha Kim

Project Runway - The Complete Second Season

Fabulous from head to toe, Project Runway differs from many of its reality-show peers in that 1) its contestants are actually skilled at a difficult trade (in this case, fashion design) and 2) it boasts the most engaging hosts (supermodel Heidi Klum and Parsons Fashion chair Tim Gunn, who’s become a breakout star himself). Season Two benefits from a more streamlined process–gone is the model-picking cattle call every episode–and a cast twice as memorable as Season One. Compare the ideas of kind fashion teacher Nick vs. wearable-technology geek Diana; the profound commentary of South African boho-chick Kara (“there’s a life to the garment”) vs. dim-bulb early cast-off Heidi (“I thought it was just, pretty… I mean, she looked pretty”). Revel in the arrogant musings, over-the-top designs, and dead-on Tim Gunn impressions of Santino Rice, who was wrongly mislabeled the villain of Project Runway. That honor truly goes to bossy witch Zulema, who never met an excuse she didn’t like, and broke a gentleman’s agreement by swiping Nick’s “muse,” model Tarah, halfway through the season (In a bittersweet end, Zulema’s subsequent ousting forced an early exit for Tarah as well). There’s even a surprise return of Season One’s Daniel Franco, whose quivering voice and shuffle added even more spice to the pot.
This season’s challenges included designing for Barbie, heiress Nicky Hilton, figure skater Sasha Cohen, and supermodel Iman; creating outfits from the clothes off their back; and designing a garden-party dress out of flowers and plants. Watching their creations (which are, in many cases, impressive) criticized by grumpy judges Michael Kors and Elle fashion director Nina Garcia makes for some of the best drama on television.
The DVD includes the full, uncut versions of Santino’s runway argument with Nina and flamboyant contestant Andre’s weepy breakdown in front of the judges (9 minutes, 53 seconds); more musical numbers invented by Santino and Nick (“No one’s gonna sew no mooooore”); footage of the cast’s audition tapes, and a Where Are They Now? featurette with Season One’s contestants. A must-have accessory for fans of the show. –Ellen A. Kim
