I really like Project Runway, but good gracious why do they keep insisting on switching things up every season? First it jumped networks, then it brought back all-star contestants (I do think that was brillz), now it's losingMichael Kors? Can anything short of a miracle (and/or Austin Scarlett) revitalize this program?
Every reality show run(way)s its course, and this fashion competition is getting ready to start its eleventh season. Not only are we losing the snippy and fabulous Michael Kors, the competition has changed as well. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled at the return of host Heidi Klum and judge Nina Garcia, and I think that Zac Posen will be an amazing replacement for Mr. Kors. I just really don't do all that well with change. Of course, through all the ups, downs, and modeling turn arounds, there is one constant that lays all my fears to rest. Tim Gunn. If these new tweaks in the show are tacky or visionless, there's no doubt Tim will be telling the producers to "make it work!"
There's a shake-up happening on Project Runway. Finally. Season 11 is about to wrap up filming and there's a whole host of changes in the work for the veteran fashion show.
One change for the upcoming season is that Michael Kors will not be a full-time judge! He's not leaving the show, but filling his chair part-time is designer Zac Posen. Michael says his schedule won't allow him to focus on the show full-time since he is busy with his fashion line. He will be judging the finale as a "guest judge."
"This was an amazing opportunity," Zactold the NY Daily News. "I hope I'm here to give a new perspective to the designers." Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia will both be returning as full-time judges.
Zac says he's loved working with the show but wished he could have spent more time in workroom observing Tim Gunn. "I wanted to be behind the scenes with Tim. … I was seeing the clothes on the runway, but Tim had all the background interaction."
