Zac is ‘IN’ and Michael is ‘OUT!’ After spending 10 whole years on ‘Project Runway,’ the designer is saying goodbye to the show — and he’s passing his title on to another designer!
Zac Posen will be joining Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, and Tim Gunn as one of the judges on the upcoming 11th season, taking over for Michael Kors! After working with Kors as a guest judge in seasons three and four, Posen says, “[Kors] was always a generous, warm mentor.”
Michael’s departure from the show was voluntary due to scheduling conflicts, but this definitely won’t be the last we see of him on Project Runway! He’s planning to return to the show for the season finale — and we can’t wait to see him reunite with the old gang!
The designer judge swap won’t be the only change that will be brought to the table for the upcoming season. The contestants are typically used to working on their own, but they will be thrown for a loop when they are told to work in groups!
Zac Posen took to Twitter and said, “So excited to be the new judge on @ProjectRunway Season 11!! Joining @heidiklum @ninagarcia and @TimGunn.” Are all you Project Runway buffs as excited as he is to see him on the show?
Zac Posen’s lines include ’40s inspired looks, mermaid-inspired gowns and super short cocktail dresses. We’re excited to see what kind of influence Posen will have on the aspiring designers this upcoming season. Some of his clients include Gwyneth Paltrow, Lucy Liu, Natalie Portman, and Naomi Campbell. Perhaps we will see some of these ladies become guest judges. Tune into MyLifetime on January 24 at 9pm/c to see Zac Posen’s debut.
