Fashion isn’t about personality. It isn’t about depth, and it’s certainly not about what’s under the surface. So in the true spirit of la mode, we’ve decided to go ahead and judge books by their covers and pick the victors of the upcoming season of Bravo’s Lifetime’s Project Runway based on their hair, clothes, and general photo-friendly charisma. And the Top 3 are….
THE DARKHORSE: Ra’mon-Lawrence Coleman (top row, third from left)
Peeking out from behind his competitors, the 31-year-old Chicago-based designer has a low-key but edgy style that says a lot without screaming for attention. We’re guessing he’ll start out slow and gradually up his game until he makes it to the top three.
THE RISK-TAKER: Malvin Vien (top row, center)
From Santino to Christian Siriano, Project Runway has always loved contestants with a unique vision. With super-styled hair and a whimsical shirt, this 24-year-old could be the guy who pushes boundaries — and buttons — on the catwalk this year.
THE FAN FAVORITE: Ari Fish (top row, second from left)
The never-ending scarf! The choppy hair! The cool-girl slouch! Our money is on this 26-year-old Missouri girl to win over viewers with quirky, Kenley-esque designs that will take her straigh to the top of the pack.
Okay, PopWatchers: Take a look at People’s gallery of the new contestants, and then let us know what you think. Who will be in and who will be auf’d this season?
