'Project Runway': We have great expectations!

154356__heidiklum_lProject Runway’s second season premiered last night,bringing with it a LOT of bad attitude (Santino, we know you’re good and we know you know you’re good, and that kinda bugs us) and at least one extraneous booty shot (thanks, Zulema!). Thus, I’m confident we’re in store for much fun. (Just someone get Andrae some Valium, please.)

But let’s use this first in what will be weekly entries to talk about proper maternity wear. Indeed, I find host Heidi Klum (at center, in black miniskirt) quite attractive. No doubt. I am in full support of her being scantily clad. I am also happy she had a healthy pregnancy [son Henry was born Sept. 12]. But I’m not sure how I feel about those elements coexisting, as they did last night. Her maternity dresses are crazy. Klum definitely gave new meaning to the idea of busting out of a tiny dress. (And speaking of healthy pregnancy, do you think she stopped kissing kicked-off contestants — like she did last year — to minimize germ passage?) I know I should proclaim pregnancy a beautiful thing, and that we should all be proud of Heidi’s aplomb. But I just feel kinda squirmy over it.

As a result, I’m too distracted to judge the designers and their talent just yet. (But I will say that Daniel Franco needs to go away so he can overdose on bliss elsewhere. And did he really call Rasputin "the Merlin of Russia"?) I’m really afraid Heidi’s water is gonna break, rendering the runway slippery and treacherous for brittle model bones. Be careful, Heidi!

    I do NOT like that Santino guy. He seems to be far more arrogant than talented. I like that nerdy Asian girl wit the magnets. She is where its at this season, along with the Latino-mohawk guy.
    Its too early in the comp. to remember names…

    Oh Tim, I’m so disappointed in you! If I had a body like that and got pregnant, I would totally wear those dresses (although I’m sure they cost $10,000 each and so instead I’ll stick with Target). Heidi was one hot mama. I think I’m going to be a big fan of Chloe and um…the guy who made the orange two-piece dress. And Daniel’s growing on me.

    I know, I can’t remember the names either. I was sad to see the heavy-set guy get eliminated in the “semi” finals – I think he would have been interesting to watch. I am already over Daniel Franco – he already had his chance and he is just too bizarre. My favorite so far is Santino (I think – he’s the tall kind of balding guy right?) and the guy that was a teacher in LA that feels he missed his calling – I think his sound bites will be the thing to look forward to this season. The nerdy Asian girl is kind of fun to watch too. This is definately the best “reality” show on television – why isn’t there a weekly recap feature on ew.com????????

    God this show amuses me. Daniel – the man seems to have some talent, but grating on the nerves to watch. Diane is so anti-fashion it’ll be fun to watch her. Andrae – will he cry in every episode? Can’t wait to see the Nina-Santino show down. Looks like it’ll be a great season.

    Yeah! Project Runway is the best! Santino’s arrogance is going to bite him in the ass! Right now…I like geeky asian girl and the teacher from CA. THis will be a fun season. Jay from last year is getting a show on Bravo too…so we can see what he is up to. I heard he has been getting in a lot of trouble in the fashion industry though. Drunken outbursts and such…

    Heidi is pretty huge, I’ll give you that. But I am really proud of her for avoiding exposing her belly like other pregnant celebrity mothers have (ie- Denise Richards and Cindy Crawford). The new season is amazing, but I agree that Daniel Franco does NOT deserve a second chance. The nerdy girl needs to go.

  • Thad

    Santino must be stopped. His ego will be his biggest foe.

  • Sina

    I LOVE Santino. I was hoping Daniel would get eliminated on the first episode. I hate the girl that looks like Bruce Lee!

  • Maija

    Santino is amazing, but he shouldn’t have been so obviously annoyed that he lost the second challenge. I kind of think he should’ve, but I can see why they didn’t give it to him. The other girl’s dress was really nice, but I thought Santino’s was a little bit better. I really like the “geeky” science girl – I think she offers a new and interesting perspective. I bet she’ll come up with some unique and innovative creations, and I hope she’s given a chance. Kristin deserved to go; I’m curious to see what else Andrae (sp?) will come up with, but the tears better stop. Daniel Franco came up with an amazing creation this time, but the first time he screws up (like he did in the first challenge) he needs to get the boot. It probably won’t be long.

  • Maija

    Also – Zelena needs to curb the attitude.

    Santino is the best http://www.askfashionkitty.com

    Am I missing something, Heidi looks amazing!!!!
    Tim, get out of the cave and grab a clue.
    Santino an interesting designer–drama, attitude and talent.
    Daniel Franco, I just feel bad for the guy. He has no idea how stupid he sounds, at least the bliss talk is lower.

  • Dara

    I love Project Runway and I’m so excited about the new season! I disagree about Heidi though. I watched the premiere with 6 other women and we all could not say enough about how beautiful she looked and we loved her maternity dresses. I think she’s adorable. It’s ok to be big when you’re pregnant. There’s a whole other person inside of you!! My husband thought she looked great as well.

  • Dee

    Why do 80% of the talented people have to be jerks. Not going to be rooting for that Santino guy. I hope that his arrogance will be his downfall.
    By the way Heidi looked beautiful.

  • LC

    Santino is a complete jerk. I lived in the Atlas during both seasons and rarely interacted w/ the cast members. One morning I came back from an early run they were all outside or in the lobby and right as I was opening the door he came out and brushed past me literally almost knocking me down. No fear, I did shout some profanity but he was probably too wrapped up in himself to even hear me.
    I hope he doesn’t win but I have a feeling he goes pretty far. His designs are awesome but as a person, he totally sucks!
    I’m rooting for Chloe and Zulema (despite the butt incident)
