Creative Captioning: This Kitten Has Claws

By Liz Kelly

We can't help but love that curt Heidi Klum when she bloodlessly axes hopeful designers from her Bravo hit "Project Runway." "You're auf," says she, looking all cute and pouty and ready to bounce contestants physically for failure to comply. And I get the warm fuzzies when I see candid pix of Klum out and about with her picture perfect family. Sure I may spit up in my mouth just a little, but that's a small price to pay for the chance to witness this model citizen's world.

What, I wonder, would "Runway" co-host Tim Gunn say about the ensemble below? That's where we come in. This week we turn our well-practiced caption creation skills loose on Ms. Klum. The best entry will be elevated to a position of prominence here in the blog and the writer of that entry may call him (or her) self "Official Celebritology Captionologist" for Halloween week 2007.
