Can Michelle Obama make it work as a guest judge on Project Runway?
That’s the question fashionistas are pondering after Heidi Klum admitted the stylish First Lady was on her wish list as a guest judge for the popular fashion TV show.
“Obviously we would love to have the First Lady,” Klum told Hollyoodlife.com. “I mean, who wouldn’t? She has become a style icon.
I don’t think people have ever looked to politicians or politicians spouses for fashion advice, but I think that has changed thanks to the new president and his wife. I think that would be kind of cool.”
If she accepts the invitation, the US First Lady would join a host of fashion-savvy celebrities including Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker and Natalie Portman, who have all appeared on the reality TV show as guest judges.
The popular TV contest for up-and-coming designers began screening on Bravo in 2004 and offers 12 individuals the chance to produce their own show at New York fashion week, providing they can survive weekly challenges without being eliminated.
Tim Gunn, who mentors the designers on the show, has seen his profile rise, with his advice and sayings such as ‘make it work’ and ‘talk to me’ all becoming catchphrases amongst fans.
The format of the show has been sold to 13 countries including the UK, Australia and Israel.
There has been no official word yet from the White House on whether or not the Mrs Obama will make an appearance on the show, but she’s no stranger to TV, having already shared her healthy lifestyle tips with Elmo on Sesame Street.
