She’s lowering herself to television. Shocking, non?

The 6th season of Project Runway kicks off tomorrow with a two hour special All Star Challenge bringing back 8 former designers joined by Granny Freeze herself!

Nicole Kidman will appear alongside host Heidi Klum to set up a task. Style-wise of course the Freeze is well qualified. She takes risks, she is creative, she will go to great lengths to get the dress she wants.

There’s a great and true, true, true story about that memorable chartreuse Dior Kidman wore to the Oscars with the GMD in 1997. Gran was obsessed with it. She was obsessed with being the star on that carpet. Portrait of a Lady had just fallen flat, she needed to bounce back, and in the art of media manipulation and ruthless famewhoring, she learned from the best.

Per haute couture custom, the dress belonged to someone else, some socialite, and Nicole could not wear it without securing permission from the rich lady first. She was so desperate she tried for weeks to get in touch with her to no avail, and in the end she had to chase the woman up a mountain while she was skiing at some luxury resort to finally nail down the privilege of wearing it to the Oscars.

For 90 minutes she sat in that limo en route to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. For 90 minutes she had the discipline not to move, not to shift, barely breathing, so as to not disturb the fabric, to preserve her perfection for the cameras.


This bitch is a professional. She has every business being on the show.

Project Runway premieres tomorrow night. Can’t wait to see her face not move. Wonder how much time they had to spend lighting her…
