"Project Runway" predictions: Minneapolis

There's already chatter in the national blog world speculating about the Project Runway: Season Six contestants. Here's Homorazzi.com's take on our local contestants, Ra'mon-Lawrence Coleman and Christopher Straub:

Ra’mon-Lawrence Coleman:
Age: 31; Hometown: Chicago, IL; Resides in Milwaukee, WI

Ra’mon-Lawrence Coleman. I’m thinking this guy craves attention. His designs appear avant-garde, but his portfolio has some pieces which take the ideas from the more conceptual items and make them wearable. I’m glad for that. Christian Siriano was also very good at that, and he won season 4. Ra’mon could be a designer to watch out for.

Christopher Straub:
Age: 30; Hometown: St. Louis Park, MN; Resides in Shakopee, MN

Another self-taught designer. Hmm, why do people even go to design school? It seems useless :P. Chris has a lot to show in his portfolio, with only really one obvious mess. The rest of his dresses are chic. I heart the black layered petal dress (though it appears a bit short), I would love to see it move down the catwalk. His questionnaire makes him seem like a bit of an invert, and he admits that he doesn’t want to do any group projects. That may hurt him early on, but it’s easy to sneak through by passing the buck to someone else so he could be a contender.

And there's more! Lifetime just released a promo video featuring both Ra'mon and Christopher. Check it out below:
