Project Runway is having a striking Season 9. No paper challenges have come up, but there has been pet store themed challenges and group work out the wazoo. Last week, judge and host Heidi Klum forced the competitors to run for a team leader position. She then asked the competing teams to create daywear to wear along with her New Balance line of shoes. Two outfits from different teams made the cut, including a super cute leather jacket from Viktor Luna. Yesterday, Klum appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to discuss Project Runway, the New Balance challenge, and Klum’s personal business ethic.

In the interview, Klum speaks about her love of fashion and the fact when she designs, she is involved with every step in creating a piece. If you take a look at the video, below, the necklace she is wearing is of her own making. When the topic turns to Project Runway, Leno asks Klum about her relationship with host and mentor Tim Gunn. Klum pauses for a moment before laughingly answering:
“He’s just awkward from the first moment I met him and he’s still awkward.”

What is most awkward, and hilarious, is an unaired segment Klum shows from Project Runway. In it, Klum convinces Gunn to run. If you haven’t seen Tim Gunn run, I highly suggest watching it.

Lifetime’s Project Runway airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. E.T. You can check out the full episode of The Tonight Show over at NBC.
