Heidi Klum, Zac Posen, Instagram


Injured or not, Heidi Klum and Zac Posen will have to make it work.

The Project Runway judges injured themselves on set Sunday, but thankfully, both appear to be doing A-OK. "DONT STEP ON A RUSTY NAIL ..... Well we both did #Bettersafethansorry @zac_posen," Klum wrote in an Instagram caption. In the photo, the host frowned and sat beside the fashion designer on a hospital bed.

Posen shared the same picture on his own Instagram and added a similar caption. He and Klum wore medical ID bracelets and sported bandages on their feet.

Project Runway is currently in its 14th season, airing Thursdays on Lifetime.

Since the series returned Aug. 6, three contestants have been eliminated: Duncan Chambers-Watson, David Giampiccolo and Hanmiao Yang. The remaining 13 contestants include Gabrielle Arruda, Lindsey Creel, Candice Cuoco, Kelly Dempsey, Merline Labissiere, Edmond Newton, Blake Patterson, Amanda Perna, Joseph Charles Poli, Swapnil Shinde, Ashley Nell Tipton, Laurie Underwood and Jake Wall.

Celebrity guest judges include Shiri Appleby, Mel B, Ciara, Hannah Jeter, Tracee Ellis Ross, Paula Patton, Coco Rocha, Kiernan Shipka, Bella Thorne, Ashley Tisdale and Constance Zimmer, among others. In addition to Klum and Posen, Marie Claire's creative director Nina Garcia retains her role as a permanent judge.

Later this season, mentor Tim Gunn will lose his cool.

Or, as he recently explained on NBC's The Tonight Show, "Big daddy blows up."

"There's one challenge, one where I really lose it. They're doing a makeover of what we call 'regular women,' and they're our crewmembers," the Emmy Award winner recalled to host Jimmy Fallon. "So, they're people I've worked with—in some cases—for 14 seasons. I know these women intimately and I felt very protective of them and rather proprietary about whatever look these designers were going to give them. We did the workroom rounds together, the crewmembers and I, looking at the work and the designers weren't listening to them. This is a makeover! This is a collaboration between you and your DNA as  designer and what this individual happens to want and desire. You have to listen to her."
