In a nutshell: For the second season, Heidi Klum again channels her inner Tyra Banks as hostess of Project Runway, a behind-the-scenes series and competition centered around the cutthroat fashion industry. Klum, Kors and Garcia serve as judges for 16 amateur designers competing in weekly challenges. Gunn returns to guide the contestants through each of their challenges. The winner will receive $100,000 to help launch their own line and a 2007 Saturn SkyRoadster. In addition, the winner's designs will be featured in a spread in ELLE and he or she will receive a mentorship from the Banana Republic design team. Do you agree with the New York Times that the show is the "Prada of reality shows"? Are any of the judges as bitchy as Janice Dickinson? Share your thoughts about Project Runway right here...
