A very pregnant Heidi Klum stepped out of her hotel in New York City looking comfortable in a long striped dress and cardigan while carrying some clothing on Friday (July 10).
And speaking of clothing, the supermodel has a lot to look forward to for season 6 of Project Runway.
The show will air next month with a full cast of 16 contestants. The wait was long due to problems when the show tried to move from Bravo to Lifetime, which was finally settled in April.
The high-energy group of fashionistas is mostly from NYC, while Nicolas Putvinski, Gordana Gehlhausen and Irina Shabeyeva all come from out of the country.
Putvinski is from Moscow and has even had his designs commissioned by W and Vogue, yet Gunn isn’t ready to praise him after the remarks he has made about the state of fashion in the States.
"If you have such a bad taste in your mouth about American fashion, why are you here?" Gunn said.
However, Gunn enjoyed Shabeyeva’s view on proportion and fit from Republic of Georgia.
Gunn had nicer things to say about Shabeyeva, who is from the Republic of Georgia, telling that he admires her sense of proportion and fit.
"Her models look as if they've been in for a dozen fittings," he said, "and they haven't."
Another contestant is New Yorker Carol Hannah Whitfield.
"She's young, just out of design school," Gunn said, but "people will be disarmed by what they see her achieve."
When it comes to the west side, Johnny Sakalis graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, where the new season was taped.
Gunn calls Sakalis a "polarizing character," saying "people will love him, or hate him."
Mitchel Hall from Georgia has lots of experience after being a creative director at a Vera Wang bridal salon.
"Mitchell looks like he just stepped out of Gossip Girl and I think that's who he'd like to design for," Gunn said.
And for the first time ever, Christina Aguilera and Lindsay Lohan will be doing cameo appearances during the challenges.
The host and judges remain the same with Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors.
"The girls are very strong on season six. There's a lot of crying, there's fighting going on, there's a lot of drama going on - but especially with the girls."
The show will air August 20.
