While nearing the end of my tour, I noticed a tall gentleman walking in front of me. He was wearing black jeans, red converse style high top tennis shoes, a black leather coat and he had a great looking dark faux hawk (not everyone can pull off this look well). As he turned his head to talk to one of his friends, I saw the side of his face and my heart nearly stopped! I remained calm, but in my head I was screaming, "OMG...is that Christopher Straub from Project Runway?!" I am a huge Project Runway fan, so this was a surreal moment for me. I am also one of those (stupid) people who always thinks I should leave celebrities alone while they are enjoying their leisure time, so I didn't say anything to him. HELLO...CHRISTOPHER STRAUB....I'm not sure what the hell I was thinking when I made that crazy decision. Yes, in the end, I left the poor man alone. But on the inside, I was seriously jumping up and down, clapping my hands and screaming, "I love you Christopher Straub!! I love you!!" We were in the last few studios together and while he was enjoying the art, I was struggling to keep myself from staring at him. I got all excited a second time when a crazy thought crossed my mind that Christopher knows Tim Gunn, one of the regulars/host on Project Runway, whom I also ADORE (cue the internal screaming and jumping up and down). I hope he didn't notice the goofy looks I was giving him. I was pitiful!
Here are a few pictures of Christopher recreating some of the looks I may have given him while we were enjoying the studio tours. OK, I may have been stalking him.
Well, I enjoyed a beautiful fall day, looked at some wonderful art and was lucky enough to run into...OMG, Christopher Straub!! Most importantly, I escaped the day without any restraining orders.
