'Project Runway' contestant Chris March gets his own reality show

Chris-MarchImage Credit: Joe Corrigan/FilmMagic.comBravo is in the process of developing a new reality series with Project Runway Season 4 contestant Chris March, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The untitled series will follow March and his “crew of fashion misfits” as they cater to their fabulous clientele, which includes the likes of Madonna and Meryl Streep (and I thought he only designed for drag queens?).

Considering the array of talent and personalities this show has discovered, it’s no surprise that there have been several Project Runway spin-offs over the years. Season 1 winner Jay McCarroll had his post-Runway life chronicled in Project Jay, in which he designed an awards show dress for Heidi Klum (that she never wore…), and Season 4 winner Christian Siriano opened up his showroom during the chaos of fashion week earlier this year for his fierce special Christian Siriano: Having a Moment. Currently, fan favorites Austin Scarlett (Season 1) and Santino Rice (Season 2) can be seen on their Lifetime series On the Road with Austin & Santino, where they travel the country giving fashion makeovers to even the most style-challenged Americans.

Chris March was a definitely one of the most beloved contestants, a sentiment that only grew as he was brought back for a second chance during Season 4. He wasn’t afraid to take risks on the show (like using human hair in his designs), but looking at his recent work, March also knows how to make simple designs extremely elegant.

What do you think about post-Runway reality shows, PopWatchers? Does Chris March have enough personality and talent to make it work? What other designers would you like to catch up with? My votes go to Daniel Vosovic, Mychael Knight, and of course, Stella “I love leather” Zotis.

    This is great! I loved Chris, he was one of my favorite contestants ever! :D

  • renee

    can … not … wait. loved chris on the show. thought he should have made the final. so glad he’s doing well!!

  • Jenks

    The writer obviously doesn’t know much about Chris March. He has designed quite a few red carpet gowns, and not for drag queens. I will be all over this show. With his personality, design flair and dishy celeb stuff, this will be a total hoot.

    • smoggy

      Uh, she was being sarcastic. Chill.

    • TQB

      I think it was actually a shot at some of the elitist critiques he received during his PR run from folks like Nina and Michael Kors. They were always implying that all he could do was drag queens and costumes. I wanted to slap Kors for some of the things he said!

  • NR

    How about a show with Kenley and Ivy together? Everybody loves ‘em!

    • fiveagainstone

      How about Kenley, Ivy, AND Wendy Pepper? Let’s the catfights begin!

      • Kaiulani

        Don’t forget Irina.

      • djm

        and Gretchen too

      • Devin

        that is one cray cray train that i would love to watch!

      • Morgaine

        In such a match-up, my bet would be on Wendy Pepper. She appears to be, by far, the most mentally stable of the 3.

    • claudenorth

      Oh wow! I forgot about Kenley!

      • Mavis

        How could you forget about the no-longer-future Mrs. Kenley Penley, who threw a cat at her fiancee????

  • llevinso

    LOVE Chris March! I’ve missed his blogposts on Project Runway this season. I can only imagine his own show will be awesome as well.

    • Redcatlady

      I keep wishing he’d guest judge on Project Runway — but, considering how far off the deep end PR’s gone this year, maybe he’s better off staying away.

  • tracy bluth

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!! I honestly felt like crying tears of joy when I saw he made Meryl Streep’s lovely Oscar dress. He’s come so far!

  • Franky

    He looks like the gay brother of the Big Boy icon.

  • fancypants

    Why am I only NOW finding out about the Christian Siriano show (Having a Moment)?! Grrr….

    • Darrell

      Right?!?! i knew nothing of this!! Have to say tho I vote for Kinley and Gretchen to do a show together

    • RaRa

      Epic FAIL, ew.com, for not letting us know about Christian’s show. Never heard of it!

  • lagitha

    I love Chris March! I can’t wait for this show.
    And I love Austin and Santino–it’s the highlight of my tv week. They are both so funny and charming and nurturing with their clients without being cloying.

  • tessa

    love, love, Cris March….so excited he has a show coming up, he has personality and talent to spare, and he comes off like one of the nicest human beings ever…hooray…hooray…congrats Cris…can’t wait

  • Bibi

    I love that he is getting his own show. No one deserves it more.

  • VLKilkellnNC

    Chris March is terrific and I think the show will be a success. The others I’d like to see are Daniel Vosovic, who should have won his Season imho. Don’t care for either Austin or Santino – both are too full of themselves. Tried their show twice – that’s it for me.

  • S

    He’s the perfect pick to have his own show. So likable.

  • Devin

    did you watch the show?
    i’m wondering if you did, because why else would you question if there is enough personality in chris march!

    • MsDaisy

      Amen!

  • Kiki

    I will definitely watch that show. Chris was always one of my favorites.
