This week’s challenge on Season 17 of “Project Runway” is to create a fabulous larger-than-life Elton John-style performance piece — presumably tied to the big-screen musical biopic “Rocketman,” due in theaters on May 31. It stars Taron Egerton, who will be singing Sir Elton’s songs himself and directed by Dexter Fletcher, who did “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
That means there will be a flock of semi-dressed male models roaming about in the workroom. No worries about those curvy models this week.
The first designers to react in the video below to the parade of male pulchritude passing by are Lela Orr, Tessa Clark and Frankie Lewis, one of the eliminated players who is helping out those who are still competing. But their reactions to the handsome gents in their midst has nothing on Sebastian Grey (above). “The male models today — all are gorgeous. They have amazing bodies. They have beautiful faces. Some of them have the most beautiful hair,” he observes.
To emphasize that fact we get a close-up shot of a set of six-pack abs, one dude with a killer smile and another guy whose flowing lush locks rival Fabio‘s.
Grey tells the camera, “I was trying to like, ‘Don’t look … just concentrate on your work and focus.’ ” But Sebastian can’t help being distracted by his handsome model as he attempts to use his shears to cut a pattern.
