Heidi Klum Celebrates Emmy Nom
Thursday July 19, 2007
Heidi Klum at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City, NY on June 4, 2007.
Will the third time be the charm for Heidi Klum, whose reality drama Project Runway was nominated for an Emmy for the third time in three years?
“Third is our lucky number!” Klum tells Usmagazine.com from Los Angeles, where she learned the news at 6 a.m. while watching the Baby First channel in bed with her three kids. The supermodel, who says she’ll celebrate with a glass of champagne, “is very proud of our show! It’s just an honor to be in the mix of all…these big time shows that have been around for a long time with big budgets, and we’re this little show.”
But don’t expect Klum to commission another dress from a show contestant to wear to the Emmy’s on Sept. 16! “I tried that once,” Klum says. “The very first time I got nominated, I asked the winner of the first season, Jay McCarroll, to design something. He had all these great ideas, and then designed something that was absolutely not appropriate. It was not an evening-red carpet thing for the Emmys—it was like an MTV/Halloween costume! I could not have gone that way. At the end of the day, I said no…He got upset.”
Klum hasn’t given any thought to what she will wear yet. “There’s still time,” she says. “There are so many amazing things out there.”
Project Runway is up against Top Chef, CBS’ The Amazing Race, Fox’s American Idol, and ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, and was also nominated for Outstanding Picture Editing for Reality Programming and Outstanding Cinematography for Reality Programming.
