Just in, Project Runway will be moving its operations to LA. The Cut is not convinced this will be good for the show: "Remember when it was announced that Project Runway was moving to Lifetime? And execs swore up and down there'd be no major changes? Not so much. Come Season Six, the show will be abandoning its New York roots for Los Angeles...This could still work, right guys? LA's got tons of great fashion. Fred Segal, Intuition, Kitson ? Oh, who are we kidding. The first challenge will be to design a tank top, and Speidi is going to guest-judge." That would be Spencer and Heidi for those of you who try to avoid The Hills from seeping into your brain. [The Cut]
