If you’ve been watching season after season of Project Runway hoping to see Heidi Klum lighten up a bit, then I’ve got just the show for you. Go catch the debut episode (above) of Spiked Heel over at Modelinia and prepare to be blown away.
Blown away by The Kluminator’s super-deadly blowdryer, that is.
The first episode starts off the main conflict for the four-episode web series: Kluminator and sidekick Coco Rocha attempt to thwart Dr. Faux Pas’s bid to destroy Fashion Week. Exactly what this entails is still unclear, but it looks like it’s going to have lots of those fashiony fake kisses, cheesy one-liners, and death rays. Spiked Heel is directed by fashion documentarian Douglas Keeve, whose previous projects include Seamless (2005), a documentary on young designers and Hotel Gramercy Park (2008).
Just Jared.com tipped us off that the show will feature guest appearances by Michael Kors, Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl, and Project Runway Season 4 winner Christian Siriano. Sounds like a veritable who’s who of high fashion, so check it out at Modelinia. No word on whether Christian will choose to go with his established catchphrases (“Fierce” and “Hot Tranny Mess”) or choose Spiked Heel as the moment to break a new one for this year’s Fashion Week.
