Project Runway Season 9 Poster

Posted on June 23, 2011

People magazine has the first look at that incredibly stupid and ill-advised naked Heidi poster promoting Season 9 of Project Runway. Check it:

Smell the desperation. Also, the placement of her right hand indicates that her right arm must be long enough to reach down past her knees. Discuss.

        It isn’t the clothes.  It will probably be more of the hyped “drama” between whatever group of people from the island of misfit designers cast for season 9.

      My arms reach the exact same spot as Heidi’s.  I guess I also have gorilla arms.

      But it’s still a stupid poster.  And I refuse to watch.  There will be no Lifetime in the Mayer household.

        Well, my hand will reach the same spot and angle, but not with the much space between my arm and my body.  For as much of the forearm that you see but with that much space between the side of her body and her arm, the angle is off for it to be a normal length.  The upper arm would have to be almost vertical for that forearm angle, so you should be seeing most of her arm and elbow.

        Yeah–my arms are as long, too.  So–it can be done.  Even so, it is a desperate move.  Alas, though, I will be watching, if only to come here the next day and catch the snark.

        My thought exactly. The writing on her arm reminds me of the (very old now) poster of the naked woman in cowboy hat on all fours with lines drawn on to represent parts of a cow. How is making Heidi naked, written on like she’s for sale, and armed with a pair of scissors cutting off the only clothing she is wearing either empowering for women (i.e., the Lifetime viewing demographic) or a logical/witty/useful connection to a program about creativity, competition and design?

      It’s almost the exact same pose from the Esquire cover 10 years ago.  And, if I remember correctly, that cover caused a similar stir about the magazine being desperate by using a naked picture of Heidi Klum to sell a story about…something not related to Heidi.

      You asked the question before, and I’m going to restate it:  Who is the target market for this ad?  It can’t be to the viewing audience because you can show all the naked women you want to–you’re still not going to get many straight men to watch.  They must be trying to look ‘hip and edgy’ to the tv industry as a whole–but I don’t think anyone in the biz is  buying it.

        Heidi is credited as a producer of this show. Maybe the whole thing was her idea? Look world!!! Four kids later and I can still look amazingly hot while nekkid.

      She shoulda worn one of her favorite designs from a previous season. What a shame. And the “Make It Work” magic marker writing on her arm makes the shoot look so low rent. Couldn’t they have done something like a groovy or tribal looking henna tattoo that said the same thing? Damn fine body though.

      I have to wonder about the Photoshopping.  She is a gorgeous woman, but her abs look “tweaked”.  When you see he on a runway in a bikini lately her abdomen look different (wider? or something) .

      Yeah, I’m not really clear on the purpose of this either… Maybe that she has no clothes and the designers will need to make something good for her?  I don’t understand.

      The photoshop doesn’t really bother me, but then it never does for ads.  I just don’t get the complaints about a portrayal in an AD not being accurate… well, no, it’s not accurate, and it still won’t be if they don’t use photoshop… because it’s an AD!  That’s it’s job!

      Now the terrible salesmanship… yeah, that bugs me.

      And the line between her  left breast and upper left arm looks like a cartoon. Maybe it was drawn with the same shapie that they used to write “Make It work ” with. Maybe they are selling sharpie markers. Do you think Sharpie is a new sponsor?
      They should have written “Carry On” on her arm, because you carry things with your arm , get it?

      Unless they’re going to have Heidi naked in every episode, this isn’t going to do anything to increase the number of straight men and gay women in the viewing audience, so there’s really no point. It’s just a shockingly bad decision.

      I’m not crazy about the ad nor concept…seems like they’re suggesting Heidi needs new clothes from the new designers for the new season (?) idk.   Not sure what cutting the pink tie is meant to suggest (probably nothing).

      I don’t think it’s a good pic of her face…she looks kind of sleepy and dead in the eyes.   And the body…I guess I should expect photoshopping in this day and age, but this seems too over-worked, and for what purpose?  Does she/they think we’re foolish enough to not spot the difference between altered and what we know is real for a woman her age?  Not a wrinkle to be seen!  I suggest if she wants to make a statement on how good she still looks naked after 20 kids and 38 years, she have the cojones to forgo the editing.  That’d get some real publicity for her, and the show. 

      Other than that…looking forward to the upcoming season.

        Not a BIT sorry. She’s an executive producer of the show and I bet she had input, if not control, of the ad that went out if she wanted it. My estimation of her intelligence just dropped significantly.  At best, it was sloppy, sloppy oversight.

        Stupid concept, technical ineptitude (in the anatomy of the ‘shopping) and either delusional pandering to her vanity or delusional thinking that anyone interested in the show wants to see a cartoon-ified version of Ms. Samuel’s body.

        We’ve SEEN her in recent bare-ish costumes, remember? We KNOW that’s not what her abs look like, & basic biology indicates her arm & elusive nipples are inaccurate. Sheesh.

      Damn, I’m fixated on her abs. I want them and the only way I’ll ever see them is through the magic of Photoshop. Sigh. Anyway, the lack of nip is just weird. Either they’re low enough to be covered by her arm (and we know that’s not the case) or she’s meant to have such a teeny tiny nearly non-existent nipple that the tie is covering it. Why, just why? She’s gorgeous as ever but the smell of Lifetime’s desperation frightens me.

      Just in terms of basic marketing, why would you use a poster of a naked woman to publicize a show that is watched almost entirely by women and gay men?  I mean, how stupid can you be? And don’t you wonder how poor Tim Gunn must feel, seeing his slogan used in this way?

      I’m sure someone’s already said everything I’ll say, but haven’t had a chance to skim:

      1.) How much money could it possibly take to find someone with some minimal knowledge of human anatomy to either do the photo shopping or to cast an editorial eye on the results? (I think it looks like there’s a 2nd person reaching in across her tummy)

      2.) It’s SO touched up/shopped that it doesn’t even look like a photograph any more (especially across her ribcage & stomach), so really, what IS the point?

      God this is dumb.

        I’m not sure you even need a basic knowledge of human anatomy beyond “Human arms are generally of very similar length.”  When you trace out the upper and lower arm until they meet at an unseen elbow, they come out to each being about a third again as long as the same parts on the other arm.

      It is a rather stupid ad, unless, as someone said below, this is supposed to tie into Breast Cancer Awareness (but awareness month isn’t until October).

      What on earth were they thinking putting her hand there? Hello, bad Photoshopping, I see you there. You’re not sneaky. Her hand must be from another shot, and perhaps in the original shot Heidi had her arm flung out off-camera.

      This must be the last desperate grasp (or gasp) for attention before going off the air. This will be the last season for Project Runway at Lifetime – I stopped watching two seasons ago. Lifetime always seems to miss the mark with the programming. They found a way to take a hit show and make a mess out of it

      WTF??  Seriously.  WTF.  Kind of pissing on our demographic there, aren’t we, Lifetime?

      The Vagina Network has once again lost its way.  Although seriously, my boobs are that high after three kids so I guess it’s a real picture…NOT!!!!!

      Tacky, tacky, tacky. I’d rather see Tim in a turtleneck.

      oh dear little photoshop of horrors!-  and what is the pink for?  why is she naked? is she making half a tie work? is she making “naked” work– is it the emperor’s new clothes or what? why is “make it work” ( Tim’s phrase) written in sharpie on her arm?- i loved PR since its first season, and this seems oddly misplaced and ill-advised from a marketing standpoint- eek!- *shakes head* i guess all good things must come to an end :(-

      Her face looks so manly.

      No amount of nudity or cheap publicity will make me watch PR again. Wretched’s, er, Gretchen’s win did it for me. It was obvious that Nina strong-armed the other reluctant judges into voting for her. Bah! The sour taste still has not left my mouth. They are obviously scraping the bottom of the judges barrel by choosing Kim Kardashian. Lifetime and Weinstein have GOT to be kidding.

      I will put all my energy into watching Sissy Bear on Bravo. Now that’s a show with the potential for loads of fun, outrageousness, humor, creativity, and originality.

      On the chestal area discrepancy, I don’t think it’s necessarily off, just awkwardly covering the parts that the network wants covered.  The left forearm is pushing Thelma down (or, more likely, Thelma was tucked down there after the pose was struck) and concealing the nipple, while the left hand is pushing Louise up and covering the nipple.  It’s weird, but possible.

      And I have officially thought about that MUCH more than a sane human being ought to.

      Oh god this looks awful. I’ll always watch this show, but good god.

      TLo, why aren’t you recapping Drag U? Red carpets are boring.

      That weird hand hovering over her non-existent belly-button and pubic area made me think of Thing on the Addams Family. And the scissors are positively scary.

      They have been having marathons of old PR shows on some cable channel.  Amazing how much more engaging some of those earlier seasons were.  I have really been enjoying them.

      Obviously they moved her arm down so the scissors she’s holding won’t overlap with the giant pink “LIFETIME.” It still looks stupid though.

      Wow!!  I feel so empowered looking at a naked supermodel, photoshopped within an inch of her life, in an advertisement that has absolutely zero to do with the television show it’s advertising!  I feel SO much better about myself – right ladies?

      Yeah, I didn’t think so… me neither.

      That is one tortured-looking torso.

      This would have been a brilliant promo if instead of Heidi, they had used a naked Tim Gunn. Well, if you’re going to Photoshop the hell out of it anyway, why not?

      She’s German.  In Germany they show boobs in regular TV commercials (I used to live there).  I do agree that her arms look freakishly long.

      that arm is creeping the FUCK out of me!
      thanks for pointing that out :P

      Am I the only one who’s been getting a serious Ann Coulter vibe from Heidi now that she’s got the longer hair?  The first banner ad for the new season scared the shit out of me when I saw it.
