'Project Runway:' Heidi Klum Reveals Which Fashionable Guest Judge Would Make Her Fall Off Her Chair
This season alone Project Runway has featured several notable celebrity guests, including Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss, Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars and fashion designer Christian Siriano. Yet, one of the show's judges, Heidi Klum, has a major dream guest in mind for the future.
"Michelle Obama, our first lady who is so fashionable," she told the Huffington Post during the show's finale taping at New York Fashion Week on Sept. 5.
"Our designers would literally fall off of their chairs if she would sit there one day... we would, too," she added about fellow judges Tim Gunn and Nina Garcia.
Mrs. Obama has been a trendsetter since the moment her husband Barack Obama stepped into office in 2008. The First Lady, who loves to wear clothes from American designers like Jason Wu, Thakoon, and Doo-Ri, has even covered Vogue twice.
"She is a modern First Lady, unrestricted by outdated codes or fussy ideas of what a woman in her position should wear-that is so refreshing!" fashion designer Tracy Reese told Vogue in 2012. "Her style is feminine yet strong, fashion-forward yet accessible. She blends mass retail with a mix of known and up-and-coming American designers. It's an important message for modern women everywhere, who are learning by her example to wear what you love and feel confident in. You can enjoy fashion while still always looking appropriate."
Project Runway airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST on Lifetime. The finale airs on Oct. 23.
