There Are Twenty Contestants on the New Season of Project Runway

Lifetime released the full roster of designers competing in Project Runway's ninth season, which starts on July 28. In the running are a scandal-plagued beauty queen, the token hipsters and crazy-haired kooks, the series's oldest designer so far, and the amusingly named Gunnar Deatherage. (Well, it beats Suede as a surely-must-be-fake name.) Try not to get too attached to your first-look faves, though, as the first episode trims the cast from twenty to sixteen before even the first design challenge — and of course one more hopeful still will be "out" thanks to that.
