There’s a big change coming up on next season’s America’s Next Top Model as judge André Leon Talley is leaving the show following four cycles.
“I am a huge fan of America’s Next Top Model and have watched the show for years,” said Kelly, 45, owner of People’s Revolution. “Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show.”
André, 61, who joined the show in early 2010 after many years of pleading from Tyra Banks, reveals there are no hard feelings about the change. “I had a great ride and will always consider my experience with Top Model one of the best moments of my life,” he states. “Tyra is an incredible role model and I learned so much sitting next to her through four cycles.”
Kelly will replace André starting early next year with cycle 18. She is well known for starring on MTV’s “The Hills” and Bravo’s “Kell on Earth“.
