Sales of his band’s “back to country” album have flagged, so Jon Bon Jovi is going back to what he was doing in between his duet with the Sugarland chick and the fourth time he recorded an unplugged version of “Wanted Dead Or Alive”: Fashion. Or something like it! The former Versace model is the “surprise” guest on tonight’s Project Runway, and he’ll be judging the contestants’ abilities to make him an outfit of some sort.
Details on what the challenge will exactly entail are, of course, being kept secret, but I personally am hoping that each designer is given the charge of replicating outfits from Bon Jovi’s body of music-video work. Just imagine the run on leather at Mood when the designers are given the task of replicating Jon’s jacket from the clip for “Runaway”!
Or the “fun” with bleach that any designers who are feuding with one another could have if they were forced to recreate his outfit from the “Bad Medicine” video. I can see the blinding now! Er, no pun intended.
But the challenge will probably wind up being something boring like “make him an outfit that makes country fans think that he’s really from the South, and not just some carpetbagger from New Jersey.”
