Nina Garcia Has Her Hands Full!

10/10/2008 at 02:00 PM ET

Despite a tantruming toddler, Project Runway judge Nina Garcia keeps a smile on her face while out with 18-month-old son Lucas Alexander on Thursday in Los Angeles. Dad is David Conrod. On the topic of dressing her son, Nina recently told Strollerderby:

"The designer labels he wears are all gifts …  But, me? I buy him the inexpensive stuff. I seehow careless he is with his clothes, and he’ll outgrow them in twoweeks. Every mom out there knows that there is nothing better thanbeing practical."

Nina, 43, who holds the title of Fashion Director for Marie Claire, will appear on the Project Runway finale, airing next Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

He has a lot of hair for his age! Love Nina and PR.

I didn’t know Nina had a baby! I don’t remember ever seeing her pregnant on the show! He’s a cutie.

Someone tell me I’m going blind-is the fashion director for Marie Claire and Project Runway judge allowing her child to wear CROCS?? I’ve seen it all now…

Jen K on

LMAO Lauren! And just think, there was an article from Tim Gunn today saying how much he disliked them!

Here is the article I referenced above:

For some reason I thought she had a girl, while I was totally wrong. My niece who is now almost three only wore crocks at that age, they were easy for her to put on and take off by herself, making them her favorite foot wear.

Candice on

I didn’t know she had a baby either! I guess a pregnancy would be easy to hide since she just sits there, but still, I’m surprised!

He’s adorable and looks just like her.

people who put down crocs can only do so AFTER trying them out with their 2-5 year old – they are the best shoes EVER for that age…

Silvana on

I was about to make a comment about the crocs hahaha…Fashion faux pas, in my opinion😉
He’s cute though!

I can understand Tim’s comment about Crocs for adults (unless, as Stacy and Clinton said, you’re a nurse or a chef), but even for kids I’ve had issues. No, I’m not a mom, but I work in the child care industry, and have seen more than a few accidents from children tripping over their Crocs. But I’m sure for running errands with mom, they’re perfect. Just not at school or in the daycare.

Nina looks very pretty in her au natural look, and her kid is very cute.

heeee that picture’s funny:)

I don’t think Nina was pregnant while shooting Project Runway. I think she had just given birth when they shot season 4. (I hope I didn’t get the season’s confused.)

Shelly on

Oops, I meant season 4.

Doesn’t she work for Elle, not Marie Claire?

Also that little guy has very expressive facial features. 🙂

Brandi on

^ Her contract with Elle ended last month and she’s with Marie Claire now.

He has an old face on young shoulders

18 months old?!?! He looks like he’s 3!! I am suprised no one else commented on that. He looks older than my average sized 2 1/2 year old. 18 month? Wow….

Brandi on

Nina is very petite I believe, so that probably doesn’t help. I bet if we saw him with his dad he’s a peanut! The amount of hair makes him look a lot older I think.

LaNina looks like a happy and wonderful mommy! I’m shocked about the crocs, though!
