The good: ‘Project Runway’ 17 returns to Bravo on March 14. The bad: No Tim Gunn. The ugly: My sad face
As a fan ever since the fashion-forward reality show began in 2004, I am looking forward to Season 17 of “Project Runway” as it returns to its original cable TV home, Bravo, when it premieres at 8 p.m. Et/Pt on March 14. Season 4 winner Christian Siriano will likely be a dandy mentor and the new host, model Karlie Kloss, packs 20-something youth appeal and is even more statuesque than her 5-foot-9 predecessor, Heidi Klum, at a towering 6-foot-2.

Elle editor-in–chief Nina Garcia and her withering stare is back as a judge and is joined by designer Brandon Maxwell, who created Lady Gaga’s black satin ball gown that she wore at the Oscars, and Elaine Welteroth, the former editor of Teen Vogue.

All this change is good and fine, and Christian is probably the “Project Runway” champ who has made one of the bigger splashes in the fashion industry, especially when

Project Runway Alum Santino Rice Claims He Is Fasting for 111 Days

Project Runway Alum Santino Rice Claims He Is Fasting for 111 Days
Former Project Runway contestant and RuPaul’s Drag Race judge Santino Rice is facing criticism in response to his plan for an extensive period of fasting.

Rice, 42, announced on Twitter on Sunday that he intends to fast for slightly less than four months, drinking “as much organic cold-pressed juice and water as I need” and adding that “3 days of just water will allow your body to heal.”

The reality star, who already follows a gluten-free and raw vegan diet, said he hopes “to inspire others to give it a try for as many days as they can,” but his tweet

Every Season of 'Project Runway,' Ranked From Worst to Best

If it were up to us, "Project Runway" would never be "out," it would just play on a loop 24/7/365.

Sadly, Season 14 will say auf wiedersehen on Thursday, November 5th, so now seems like a good time to take stock and rank the previous 13 seasons, with the expectation that the 2015 season will probably fall somewhere in the middle of the pack once it's done. (Tim Gunn "hated" Season 14, but there have been worse.) Every season of PR is a precious, unique little rhinestone, but, like the judges, we have our favorites -- and now it's Our turn to be biased.

So here's our very subjective but still definitive worst-to-best ranking, which may only be challenged by a glare from Nina Garcia, an eye roll from Michael Kors, a "make it work" from Tim Gunn, or an "out" from Heidi Klum.

13. Season 11 (aka 'Teams')Maybe it seemed like a good, or at least dramatic,

RuPaul's Drag Race recap: season seven, episode 11 – Hello, Kitty Girls!

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more surreal, the queens were tasked with finding Japan’s favourite cat an extravagant new Bff

America’s Next Drag Superstar needs to know how to brand. Sadly we are not talking with a red-hot poker. No. Branding Hello Kitty-style. The five remaining queens had to make some sort of outfit out of a pile of litter stamped with Japan’s favorite pussy while some minion in a Kitty costume looked on and posed disturbingly.

Ru dragged back Project Runway star Santino Rice from wherever they keep these people to advise on what really was, after-all, a Project Runway challenge. Santino even stole Tim Gunn’s line “Make it work!” And then Ru pulled another Runway classic by springing a second look on the girls – not only did they have to come up with “Hello Kitty Eleganza”, they also had to

Start your engines! RuPaul's Drag Race is coming to the UK on June 1

RuPaul's Drag Race is finally returning to the UK.

truTV has brightened our day by announcing that the reality show will kick off its fourth season on June 1.

This is the first time that these episodes have been shown on free to air UK TV - and as if that wasn't enough, each episode will be followed by sister show RuPaul's Drag Race: Untucked.

The show sees legendary star RuPaul Charles guiding a group of hopeful drag queens through the competition, as they face styling, personality and performance challenges in an attempt to win the season.

And to make things even better, the bottom two contestants in each episode lip sync for their lives before RuPaul decides which one of them hasn't made the cut.

RuPaul is joined by judges Michelle Visage - who might just be familiar to Celebrity Big Brother fans - and Santino Rice and Billy B,

Waxing Episodic: The glorious 'Project Runway' season one finale
In HitFix's new feature "Waxing Episodic," we reflect on an episode of television we'll never forget. I don't know a single person who believes "Project Runway" is at its best now, but the decade-old reality competition is still chugging along, and that's a remarkable feat for a show that peaked in terms of sheer entertainment value at the end of its first season.  Yes, season one.  Say what you will about the subsequent cycles, which have included some of the most hilarious contestants (Santino Rice, Laura Bennett, the loopy, lovable puppetrix Elisa Jimenez) and undeniable talents (Christian Siriano, Mondo Guerra, Leanne Marshall) in reality history, but "Project Runway" has almost always required trumped-up workroom drama to keep us coming back. Season three succeeded with the Jeffrey Sebelia cheating allegations and season eight offered up an irritating, intriguing teacher's pet in the form of winner Gretchen Jones, but the duller seasons

'RuPaul's Drag Race': 10 Queens Who Need to Guest-Judge
"RuPaul's Drag Race" is coming back March 2 with a judging panel consisting of veterans RuPaul and Michelle Visage and newcomers Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews. Exciting! Personally I will miss Santino Rice's snarly angst, but he's had a good run. More exciting: The announced guest judges this season are pretty thrilling. Kathy Griffin is back along with Olivia Newton-John, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, and John Waters. Pretty damn smashing. But before season seven gets under way, let's make sure to proclaim which celebrities Still need to join RuPaul and criticize the fabulous dames of his runway.  1. Tim Gunn Here's my problem with Tim Gunn on "Project Runway": I truly believe he is holding back. He comes from a distinguished academic background and taught at Parsons for years. He knows biting, incisive criticism. Not that he goes easy on "Project Runway" contestants, but he could certainly be grimmer and more subversive.

Once again Logo and RuPaul’s Drag Race hears our prayers by giving us more from episode 8 with an extended scene Drag Queens of Comedy. As usual the show generally gives us the best of each contestant. A lot of what was cut out in last night’s show was the dirtier stuff from Darienne Lake that didn’t seem to go over well. We also missed even more digs at Michelle Visage and Santino Rice in Bianca Del Rio’s standup. Surprisingly it looks like we saw most of BenDeLaCreme’s and Laganja’s performance last night.

What’s the Best Reality Show Ever? Round 2: The Osbournes vs. Project Runway
Today we continue the second round of Vulture’s ultimate Reality Rumble, a bracket to determine the greatest season of the greatest reality-tv shows, from The Real World on. Each day, a different writer will be charged with determining the winner of a round of the bracket, until Vulture's Margaret Lyons judges the finals on March 25. Today, in the second quarterfinals matchup, the first season of The Osbournes, in which we meet the bickering family of a famous metal superstar, goes up against the second season of Project Runway, which introduced us to the salacious antics of Santino Rice.In one corner: a show about a poorly behaved but ultimately loving celebrity family. In the other: a fashion competition putting skill on a pedestal above personality.

“This program will be broadcast in Hds: High Definition Shade.”

So said hostess with the mostess RuPaul, introducing the seven queens competing on Monday’s season 6 premiere, part one. Yep. You heard that right: Seven queens, part one. In an effort to shake it up like a stiff (no longer Absolut) cocktail, Ru changed the game for this edition of Drag Race. For starters, the premiere will take place over two weeks, with one batch of queens arriving the first week and facing elimination. The process will repeat next week because, as Ru put it, “The only thing better than

'RuPaul's Drag Race' Recap: Seven Contestants Battle To Be In The Top 12 In Part 1 Of The Season 6 Premiere

RuPaul’s Drag Race kicked off its sixth season with seven contestants battling it out for six available spots in part one of the premiere.

Next week, the premiere will conclude with seven more contestants being put to the test, and finally in week three the surviving 12 will come together for the competition. The two-part premiere is not the only trick RuPaul had up her sleeve. Another big change this season is there will be absolutely no immunity from eliminations.

First things first, RuPaul opened the show with her usual flair and introduced us to the Queens:

Adore Delano, aka Danny Noriega, is perhaps one of the less experienced of the contestants, but she has enough sass to fill any room. Noriega is no stranger to reality tv competition. He was a contestant on Season 7 of American Idol.
