Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

I know, we all got a little tired of the Top Chef recaps. So we'll try something a little different for Project Runway, which kicked off last night with two locals: Urban Flower/Grange Hall's Jeffrey Marion Lee (described by one Friend of Unfair Park as "a very nice, down to earth, smart and funny guy") and Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts grad Elisa Jimenez.

First, for a short, sharp summation of last night's ep -- during which Jimenez nearly got the boot for this beautiful monstrosity and Lee was barely seen -- I recommend local ad-bizzer "Irene Done," who maintains the NotBillable blog. Writes Irene, you knew Jimenez wasn't going to get Klummed because "she's beautiful and batshit." (I also recommend Project Rungay, just because.) Then another Friend recommends you play along with Fafarazzi.com's Project Runway fantasy football somesuch. Oh, by the way, you do know who edits the show, right? No? Try this guy. Look familiar? --Robert Wilonsky

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
