The Latest

Here is Bravo's official press release regarding the Season 4 auditions. We are struck most by the fact that there are very few details associated with the dates. Is Macy's out as a sponsor? Where will these auditions be held? At last check, the application hadn't even been posted yet. It's almost as if this was slapped together at the last minute. What's going on behind the scenes?

Meanwhile, we noticed this interesting bit of news yesterday:

Movie producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein are turning themselves into fashionistas.

The brothers have partnered with investment firm Hilco Consumer Capital to buy the Halston fashion brand, which was favoured by the international jet set during the 1960s and '70s.

Their Weinstein Co. studio plans to make a documentary about Roy Halston, the late fashion icon who created the fashion house, and to feature Halston products in its films and on Bravo's reality series "Project Runway."

It looks like Project Runway may be used as a venue to resurrect the Halston brand. But what other sponsors will we see in Season 4? Many questions still remain...
