A Designer I Worked With is on Project Runway

Woah. So I pulled up the recorded shows on my DVR this evening, and was very pleased (and surprised) that a new season of Project Runway had begun. Bran and I started watching it, and within the first few minutes, as they were introducing the designers, I blanched, pushed pause, and frantically started gesturing to the TV screen. Brandon looked from me to the man on the screen, and said, What?

Uuuuh. Uuuuuh. Eeeeeh. Aaaaaaah, was all I could get out at first. I was pointing, flailing my arms around. It’s him! I screeched, it’s HIM!
Who? Brandon kept asking, about a million times…
The runway show…! It’s him. Uuuuuh. Eh!
Wha--? He says… (Honestly he can be so daft.)

After I had calmed down, I was able to say that it was Keith Bryce, the owner and designer of the eclectic boutique in downtown SLC, Filthy Gorgeous. I had been in a runway show of his last summer.

Um, how freaking cool is it that he made it onto Project Runway? It’ll be so interesting to see how far he goes…

Here’s a pic of us after the runway show. The theme was Wonderland, after Alice in Wonderland. I was Alice, and the outfit I was wearing was inspired by Alice’s outfit herself – only, this obviously had a bad girl and rocker spin on things. ...And, honestly, this may be the worst picture of me ever taken (well, post-braces, anyway) but I was caught in mid-laugh, but the bad kind, not the cute kind of mid-laugh. :(

Good luck Keith! He's incredibly talented, and I'm sure he'll go far. I'm, like, totally excited that I actually know someone from a reality TV show. It's about time, man.

hi,
i just stumbled upon your blog, and i just want to say that you're so hilariously cute (and your son is adorable). AND, that's so awesome that you were in his show and now he's on project runway!!!!

I love Project Runway! That is totally cool that you know a designer on there! :)

Jackie said...

Ha I totally watched it - now I have a real reason to have a favorite designer on the show instead of superficial reasons (aka not liking the "tanorexic" guy!)

And you look beautiful in the pictures (as always) but can I say that you look much happier in your pictures from this past summer? Like truly, deep down inside happier?

Love you lots!!!

And when I said "past" summer, I meant CURRENT summer. Sorry, my brain has turned to mush.

I love Project Runway, but never know when it is on...so...when?? what time??? You know, just to freak you out a little more on how we "must be sisters", did I mention that I was a booker at a modeling agency? And that I also look exactly like Christy Turlington? (OK, well that is not true....but the booker part is!)

Way awesome!

I LOVE Project Runway. I think it is one of my favorite reality shows. Oh yeah, I read that for the first time this season, there is a romance. And only one guy is straight, so hmmm.

That is super cool you know one of the designers. I always love when there is actually someone I know or have met that I see on tv, read in the paper, hear on the radio, etc.

By the way, you are one BAD Alice!

Laura, do you have cable? (If you don't, we may not be able to be sisters anymore.)

Anyway, it's on Bravo, on Wed nights, like, LATE. I think.

But also, because of it's mucho popularity, it's on abc or nbc or something with a c, and though I don't know for certain when or if it's already begun, it will...but you may have to do a bit of research that I will absolutely NOT do because, well, I'm tired. Peace out, ya slut/foodie! ;)

Wow! That is so great. I don't watch Project Runway, but I might have to start. I remember putting together all the stuff for those auditions and you being in his show last summer too when I was working at W. ;) (call me 2 face if you want, but it was a job) Anyway, I love that picture of you mid-laugh. I think it's so real and adorable. Glad you posted about it!

I dig the dress.

Laura said...

OK, whore, got it...Wednesday, July 16th, 9pm, Bravo...Season 5 begins! Woo hoo! And a BIG yes to cable.We got rid of it for a while, to save money, but it didn't last. We have decided to feed the children less as our means of saving.

You know, I think I might be upset that none of you (especially you, Laura) never came up with any dirty jokes that might include, but are not limited to, my hairy balls. Just go look at the last pic of me I posted...oh geez. It's all I can think about!

Freak nasty.

Laura said...

OK, so I just spent five minutes staring up your skirt, trying to see your hairy balls, or hairy whatever...and just now, I am thinking you meant your actual hair on your HEAD, that perhaps does look rather ball sack like. Is that it? Or did you just want me to sneak a peek at your crotch??

I hope I got. I hate to disappoint.

brie said...

LOL, yeah Laura, it's the massive hairy monstrosities hanging by my ear lobes. When they attached them to my head, everybody kept saying things, like, wow, I like your hairy balls, or, your balls are bigger than mine!

Aren't they hideous?

PS Do you like my crotch? I think it's pretty.

Laura said...

prettiest crotch in SLC!
