America’s Next Top Model just got more glamorous. Lauren Conrad and Kim Kardashian will appear separately as guest judges when the show returns for it’s 13th cycle.
LC will join host Tyra Banks, photographer Nigel Barker and runway diva J. Alexander on the judges’ panel on Sept. 16, while Kim will take her turn on Oct. 21.
According to People, each episode of the new cycle, which premieres Sept. 9 (8 p.m. EST) on the CW, will feature a member of the fashion community as a guest judge.
Former judge Paulina Porizkova will no longer be appearing on the show, as she was fired back in May. Another first for this season? All of the contestants on this cycle will be 5?7? and under.
