TV Watch Project Runway
Project Runway contestant Ashley Tipton wants to see a major change in the plus-size fashion industry.
"I feel like there's not enough clothing out there to show our personality, and just to be comfortable and to be fashion-forward and to be a trendsetter," the designer, 24, tells PEOPLE. "There are a lot of clothes out there for the straight-size woman to be able to show that, but in the plus-size industry, I don't feel like it's there just yet."
Tipton – who is the first designer to appear on the show that specializes in plus-size apparel – was actually inspired to pursue her dreams by all the bullies who told her she'd never succeed at anything.
"When people told me that I couldn't do something, I wanted to always prove them wrong," she says. "That comes a lot from people always bullying me because of my size, and not thinking that I could do anything to impact the world or inspire other people. I feel like this first episode is showing that what they've done to me in the past does not affect who I am. I'm still going to do what I want to do."
Heidi Klum has proven she's got moves on the runway, the red carpet and reality television – she was just nominated for an Emmy for Project Runway – but who knew she was such an aficionado of the kitchen?
Get out your checkbook! Heidi Klum is selling her Brentwood, California, estate and it could be yours – for $25 million.
Heidi Klum may have dressed up as a 95-year-old woman for Halloween – complete with wrinkles and age spots – but the supermodel insists that she's not scared of getting old.
She finds the idea of plastic surgery far more frightening.
"I've never done anything," Klum, 40, said during an interview on Access Hollywood Live on Thursday. "I've been too scared, to be honest with you."
The Project Runway host says she hasn't had fillers or injections and has come up with a simple solution for those pesky lines on her forehead.
Heidi Klum believes in letting out her wild side in between the sheets.
"It's good to make an effort to dress up sometimes – to do things outside of the norm," the fashion mogul, who is currently courting bodyguard Martin Kirsten, tells Marie Claire in its February issue.
"Some people are more experimental in bed and others are more boring. If you are wild and crazy, bring it on so the other person is well aware that you have little devil horns that come out every once in a while."
Heidi Klum has so far been successful in passing down strong sense of style to her children.
"We have a rule in the house," the supermodel recently told reporters during a conference call. "Rule No. 1 is always to look cool, and rule No. 2 is don't forget about rule No. 1. We have other rules ... but the No. 1 rule is to always look cool."
Of her four kids – Leni, 8, Henry, 6½, Johan, 5½, and Lou, 2½ – the first two take the rule "very seriously," Klum says. "Henry changes clothes 10 times a day and he wants to be very cool. I mean, he would wear a T-shirt and then he will wear a tie just around his neck, knotted, and then a belt over the shirt."
Another trip down the aisle for Heidi Klum? Maybe not.
In a rare moment of candor, the Project Runway judge told the weekly newspaper Bild am Sonntag" that she's not sure she'll ever marry again – although she did love being married to Seal.
"I don't know if I'll get married again," Klum, whose separation (after seven years of marriage) was announced in January, is quoted as saying.
"Although I really enjoyed being married. I'm a dreamer. I loved our annual fairy tale weddings that were our big family parties. But sadly, it somehow didn't work out."
For Katie Holmes, the show must go on.
The actress, who on Friday filed for divorce from her husband of five years, Tom Cruise, kept her previously scheduled Monday appearance on the Lifetime reality fashion competition Project Runway: All Stars, PEOPLE has learned.
And according to judge Isaac Mizrahi, Holmes, who appeared as a guest judge, was a nice addition to the show. "She did great," he told PEOPLE after the taping.
Last year, Project Runway host Heidi Klum shed her clothes to kick off the new season of the show.
But for season 10, Klum "covered up with lingerie" and lounged atop hundreds of pairs of scissors.
The model, who is no stranger to out-there photo-shoots or posing nude, admits that she was a little scared by the prospect of blades at her back.
"I got to the shoot and I thought they'd add the scissors in editing afterward," she tells PEOPLE. "But nope, they wanted me to lie down right in the middle of the pile!"
Project Runway is back! And it's the design competition's 10th anniversary season.
"I can't believe that it is Project Runway's 10th anniversary already!" says host and judge Heidi Klum."What an amazing milestone. I'm incredibly proud of the show and everything we've accomplished."
The new season, which kicks off Friday with a live runway show in New York City's Times Square, will begin airing July 19 (9 p.m. ET) on Lifetime.
