FASHION WEEK THROUGH A LENS: PROJECT RUNWAY
Running directly from the Kenneth Cole to the craziness of the Project Runway show, I had to lie my way in. They were only letting in photographers from major wire services, and looked on the list and asked me if I was so-and-so, so of course, I said "yes".
For us photographers, the biggest thing about this show was that they wanted everyone to stay for two tapings. It never happened. Basically, everyone bolted after the first taping, not to run to another show, but for lunch. But, what was really, really annoying was the crane-mounted camera that kept moving across the runway and interfering with our shots. It was probably the only show -- actually it was the only show -- where TV took priority over photography.
And Heidi Klum -- way more gorgeous in person than you would believe.
