A Star Is Born

Image Hosted by

Over at the World of Wonder site they have a great piece by Randy Barbato, one of the directors of "Inside Deep Throat," about seeing Project Runway's Austin Scarlett at a Hollywood party. After a thrilling description of the hush that fell over the crowd of celebs and hipsters when they became aware of Austin's presence, Barbato writes that he approached Austin:
As we chatted, I found myself distracted, he was giving me everything I wanted, but something was missing. Something wasnt quite right. Suddenly it hit me – there was no lip gloss! Was he testing us all? Was this a new down-to-earth look? What was going on? I had to say something, but I didn't want to offend him. So after stumbling a bit, I casually said, "I love how your lips always seemed to be freshly glossed on the series." He was like, Oh my god! and quickly reached into his pocket and pulled out the gloss and slathered it onto his lips. It was an amazing moment, you know, like when you're chatting to Cher and she has some lipstick on her teeth and you lick your teeth in front of her to give her the cue.

Isn't that exactly what you hope and expect Austin would do? I love it when people don't disappoint. Oh, Austin. Even though Jay McCarroll is officially America's Sweetheart, you will always have a special place in my heart. The place that is sprinkled in golden faerie dust, covered in Miss Haversham's lace wedding veil, cinched in by a Victorian corset, and swathed in layers of sheer gossamer. It's a very, very special place, and you belong there...

    Oh my god! I almost peed my pants. I only wish it were me giving subtle hints of gloss to Austin. -foxipino
