Fringe Heidi: Heidi Klum in Sean Kelly design at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards on August 16th
This week on Lifetime Network's "Project Runway", the Challenge was to create a Red Carpet look for Heidi Klum to wear to the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards (Heidi, along with Tim Gunn, were both nominated for Outstanding Reality Competition Program Hosts). Now, anyone who was not living under a rock and aware of social media, knew what she actually wore--and therefore who won--when Heidi herself showed photos on her Instagram--in addition to the thousands of Fashion-and-Red Carpet Obsessed social media peeps who released photos. I was one of them.
Twirl It Girl--Heidi Klum at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards
The reason we knew the winner is because the actual 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards occurred on August 16th and this week's episode was on August 21. Not sure why the show did that and scheduled this all-important episode after the fact, but oh well. There is one saving grace, the 2014 Creative Arts Emmys will actually air on TV tomorrow (even though it was taped on the 16th--hope this all makes sense). Now, back to the episode--and let's just pretend you didn't see the gown above, shall we!!??
I give Heidi props for wearing "Project Runway" designers. I explain in my RECAP HERE MyLifetime.com that she doesn't have to--Keep reading at the end of this blog for that...
I'm happy to say that I am one of those designers whose designs she has worn:
Heidi Klum in NIKOLAKI black jersey and leather one shoulder draped dress, at the Conan O'Brien Show
Heidi Klum in NIKOLAKI one shoulder jersey draped dress on "Project Runway Season 7 "Models of the Runway"
The Judges: American World Cup alpine ski racer on the U.S. Ski team Lindsey Vonn, Marie Claire's Nina Garcia, designer Zac Posen and Heidi Klum--Episode 5 Season 13 "Project Runway"...
My Favorite Looks:
The Heidi No Likey:
Is that a pin holding the back halter strap? I think so.
Nice Hem. The cutting isn't even good. Ayyyy Dios Mio!
How Not To Sew A Zipper. Well, we know who'll never be giving lectures on Garment Construction.
The Devil Horn bust line, the too-much cleavage...it all spelled disaster for Kristine.
Two designers went home:
One More Time--
Congrats to Sean Kelly
Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn--on the red carpet of the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards last week.
Now...time for my "Project Runway Blog" RECAP--Read on, and as always, let me know YOUR thoughts!
Season 13, Episode 5: Red Carpet Redo
Last week on “Project Runway" we had Red Robin, and now, it’s red carpet! This episode begins with a black SUV pulling up to the formally-known-as-Parsons building and lots of paparazzi taking photos of a celeb getting out. It’s the one-and-only Heidi Klum! She steps onto the red carpet runway, dressed in only a trench coat and high heels. Heidi tells the remaining 12 designers that she has nothing to wear. Sidebar: I doubt that, but I’ll go along for the sake of the show. She announces that the Challenge for the designers this week is to design a red carpet look for her to wear to the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Sidebar number two: The Creative Arts Emmys occurred last week and we saw TONS of photos of what Heidi wore, so if you are at all connected to social media, you knew who won prior to the airing of the episode. There seemed to be some sort of scheduling snafu, but I'll suspend disbelief once again. Heidi tells the designers to create something unexpected, fashion forward and fearless. Oh, and one last directive: She doesn't want to end up on a Worst Dressed List.
I have to take this time to give Heidi some props. She doesn't have to wear clothing created by "Project Runway" designers, but she has done so on many occasions. Heidi can wear any designer in the world...
