Although I do watch my fair share of Project Runway, I am not a fashion savant, nor do I pretend to know much about it. How exactly did I find myself at the Alexander McQueen exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, you ask? Well, after all of the rave reviews it got, it's hard not to be curious. On Friday morning I went to check out the scene...and was utterly shocked. Wrapped around blocks and blocks was the line just waiting to get inside the museum. Once inside, there were even more lines to enter the exhibit. I knew that the exhibit would be crowded, but I did not expect the mob scene that awaited me upon my arrival. The wait turned out to be well worth it.

Models, designers and the rest of the stylish set will swarm New York in less than a month, but the rest of us might have to wait a lot longer to get our yearly peek inside the fascinating industry. For the past five years, we’ve gone behind the scenes with designers on “Project Runway.” This year, producers are set to film the season six finale under the tents, but it remains to be seen if the show will go on (cable, that is). The latest season completed taping in L.A. last fall, but a bitter legal battle between Bravo parent-company NBC, Lifetime, and producers at The Weinstein Company has “Runway” hanging in the balance. Lifetime bought the rights to the hit last summer when its deal with Bravo expired, but NBC didn’t plan on letting Bravo’s highest rated show go without a fight. NBC execs said the company had right of first refusal when it came time to renegotiate the contract. They believe the Weinstein Co. broke said contract by taking the show to Lifetime. Lifetime was set to begin airing episodes in November, which would allow an exciting run up to Fashion Week, but injunctions, summonses, and any other legal jargon you can think of have brought the series to a screeching halt.
