Christian is only 21 and is the baby of Season 4. He’s incredibly talented and has ’tude for days. Rico seems to think he has what it takes to make it to the final three. My guess is Rico just wants to take him to Fubar in WeHo for Fat Dick night.
The Predicted Winner
Hands down, I am going with the Israeli wunderkind turned Los Angeles resident Rami Kashou. He’s dressed Lindsay, Fergie, Paris and an ever-growing roster of celebrities. His designs are feminine without being overly girly, and his taste, from the bit I’ve seen, is impeccable. He’s also a total fox. I actually got to e-mail him some questions. I was wondering what an already-successful designer with his clothes hanging in exclusive boutiques across the country hoped to get out of winning Project Runway. “Business growth,” he said. “As a self-financed designer who can always use more tools to promote a brand, I decided to do the show and benefit from the powerful media of television. It will certainly help in the growth of my company and potentially attract investors.” All that talent, and he’s smart too. Rico thinks he can actually get a date with him.
The Rest of the Crew
Keep an eye on Carmen. She’s fierce, and I bet she’ll prove to be a top competitor. Rico says to look out for Steve and Marion, who just may turn out to be the stealth bombers of Season 4. We both agree that Kit may prove to put up a fight with her punkish chick threads, and Sweet P may be a rocker mama sporting an inner Jeffrey Sebelia. For the record, Sweet P wins my prediction for fan favorite. Kevin and Ricky left no impression so far, and Simone’s designs left Rico sleepy. Or maybe it was the three bottles of champagne? Kids, there’s a whole lot of “fabulous” in Season 4.
