Product Description

The hip series Project Runway is a pop culture sensation. International supermodel Heidi Klum returns as host, heading a glamorous panel of celebrities and fashion icons in search of the next star fashion designer.

Amazon.com

The third season of Bravo's reality hit boasted the most evenly matched upper roster of aspiring designers thus far in the series, and maintained the show's reign as one of the best in reality television (it's been nominated for an Emmy every year). It also featured not just one clichéd villain, but several: Keith, the impossibly arrogant menswear designer who believed he was "above" all challenges (and refusing to design the dog outfit mandated as part of that challenge); Jeffrey, the tattooed rock-star designer who was as condescending as he was innovative (yet, because of his bluntness, successful sobriety and impossibly cute son, you couldn't help but like the guy a little); and Vincent, the slightly perverse '80s-era designer who famously cashed out his 401(k) to try the business again and whom always seems two sandwiches short of a picnic. The season's challenges included making a dress out of materials from the contestants' apartments, modernizing the look of a fashion icon (from Audrey Hepburn to Madonna), and designing an evening gown for Miss USA (the later fallen Tara Conner) to wear in the Miss Universe pageant. Later in the season, the remaining finalists were able to jet off to Paris to be judged by designer Catherine Malandrino, whose criticisms were actually harsher than host Heidi Klum's ("You look rideeeculous," she tells one. "You look like a fehk pop stahr." ). Other guest judges during the season included Vera Wang, Kate Spade, Ivanka Trump, and Richard Tyler.

Project Runway stands out from many other reality shows in that talent was actually a requisite and there was no audience voting to keep undeserving contestants in. Not to say there weren't any frustrating contenders overstaying their welcome (Take Angela, the farm girl who claimed her dresses were "mistaken for Yves Saint Laurent" back home, but felt the need to smother all her creations with rosettes), but the competition was evenly, satisfyingly matched toward the end. The DVD includes the reunion episode, which features a tense exchange between Keith and Klum and pokes fun at den father/breakout star Tim Gunn's "$3 vocabulary." A couple of bonus features follow the finalists post-show, profiles Gunn, and shows an assortment of outtakes. Not featured on the DVD? The many, many Saturn Sky Roadster promotions that preceded every commercial when it aired on television. And for that, we happily say Auf Wiedershen. --Ellen A. Kim

As I said on my reviews of Project Runway - The Complete First Season and PProject Runway - The Complete Second Season, this show had me hooked immediately, and Season 3 was no exception. Thanks to this season's designers, I actually enjoyed this season more than season 2. Some of the creative challenges include: creating an outfit made out of items found in the designer's living space; designing a gown for Miss USA in the Miss Universe Pageant; making matching outfits for a dog and its owner and creating a background story for the owner (actual dogs modeled the outfits on the runway!); and one of my faves, using materials from a recycling plant in Jersey!

Yes, there is some drama on this season (two designers accused of "foul play", one designer being rude to another's mother), but as before, the drama does not overtake the creativity that is this show's hallmark. Another wonderful thing about this show is how there is also a nice age range of the contestants (one of my faves is a 40-something mom of 5 children with another on the way during the show!).

Extras on the DVD include:
1. "WEAR Are They Now?" featurette: curiously, this time they eliminated one of the Project Runway Season 3 winners, with no explanation of why there is no update for the missing designer (I will not reveal the names so as not to spoil the series for anyone).
2. "WEAR Was He Then?: Tim Gunn, Making It Work" featurette: a nice mini documentary on Gunn (can you believe this very formal guy was inspired by pop-up books as a kid?!?). Gunn definitely seems more human after watching this.
3. Tim Gunn's Season 3 Blog: contains Gunn's commentary on the individual designers/episodes
4. Designer Bios
5. Outtakes presented by L'Oreal Paris

What I most enjoyed about Season 3 was the project to make a matching dog outfit to go with a ladies garment. I'm not a dog owner, but was very curious to see the outfits the contestants would sew up for these little dogs. Some of the outfits were cute, the dogs were all small-sized. Aside from that project, there were a number of other interesting projects, one of the most interesting was making outfits inspired by fashion icons (Cher, Katherine Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, etc.) There were some really beautiful outfits and some dreadful ones too. Also, for one of the competitions all of the contestants were flown to Paris, and it was interesting to see the scenes filmed there.

One thing that I did not like about this season was the conflict between some of the contestants. I know that since this is a "reality show" that conflict and arguing is part of the formula, but I watch the show just to see the sewing and finished outfits, and I fast-forwarded through the arguements. Some people enjoy watching that kind of thing, but I could do without the conflicts, and I thought a lot of the personal conflicts should have been edited out so that we could see more of the sewing techniques the contestants were using. In this season, one of the contestants was disqualified when he was found violating rules, and a finalist was unjustly accused of violating rules but his name was cleared and he stayed in the competition. Those two parts were very relevant to the competition, but the personal conflicts and arguements were extraneous.

I missed many of the early seasons of this show, but I became a fan, and wanted to see all of the seasons to try to "catch up" This season don't fail to entertain. It has been great to watch this show evolve into the show that it is today. I would recommend if you missed the early seasons.

I love this series. I had missed the first two seasons and so I bought those to watch, and found once I finished those that I really needed to watch all the seasons again. So I purchased Season Three. It was just as enjoyable as I remembered.

I love this show, and this is my favorite season. I've purchased this DVD once already for my best friend as a birthday present, and I recently bought it again myself. I love it! Seeing the creativity and innovation is very inspiring.

Project Runway is my aunt's favorite show (she loves Tim Gunn and Joanna Coles on the All Stars version), but she only started watching it around season six or seven. She's already 1/3 of the way through the third season disc I gave her a week and a half ago - this is her first Bravo season (I saw a different season in reruns a few years ago), and she still loves it. Plus she's seeing some contestants from the first and current All Stars seasons, which she likes.

Project Runway is an incredible show that attempts to find the next big fashion designer. Contestants have a design challenge each week, ranging from making clothing out of cast-off mail packaging to designing outfit for each others mothers to creating a look for a beauty queen. The worst designer is kicked off each week until there are three finalists who create collections to show in New York's Fashion Week.

This season has a talented cast, each with their own very distinct styles and entertaining personalities. For example, there is Jeffrey, the tattooed, rock-and-roll oriented designer who has a rough past. Michael Knight has an affinity for designing for the female body. Laura is a classy, sophisticated mother of six. Kayne is a pageant designer who loves sparkle. Vincent is a designer who flourished in the 80s and is making a comeback to the field he loves.

The personalities make the show, but the challenges are entertaining, the work the designers do is beautiful, and the judges always have something sharp to say. For anyone who loves the fashion world, and even for those who don't, this is a highly entertaining show, and a reality show in the true sense. There are no scripts and the prizes have a real impact on the winner's life.
