She has every top designer falling at her feet, but Heidi Klum always makes a point of supporting her favorite Project Runway alumni when she’s walking the red carpet. To celebrate some of the show’s brightest stars, she’s picked a few of her favorite looks from auf’d (and winning) contestants, highlighting them on her website.
Top billing goes to a dreamy Christian Siriano creation Klum wore while hosting the 60th annual Emmy Awards in Los Angeles. “I thought this was such a unique and different dress,” she writes. In fact, gowns by Siriano make up nearly half of the list — a testament to the season 4 winner’s talent and growing popularity.
A black-and-white polka-dot dress by season 8 finalist Mondo Guerra — which she wore to a Black Swan screening in 2010 after asking him to make it in a day — earns raves, too. “As people know, Mondo was my choice for winner that season of Project Runway,” Klum says, referring to the heated debate that took place between the judges that year when choosing a champ. “I loved getting to support him in this way.”
For a more casual look, Klum chooses a red ensemble by Daniel Vosovic, a promising season 2 finalist. “I love his polished sportswear,” she says of the young star, who dressed her for a gallery opening last month. Looks by Runway favorites Rami Kashou, Emilio Sosa, Anthony Williams and the latest Runway winner, Anya Ayoung-Chee, round out the list. To see them all, visit heidiklum.aol.com.
