There’s a switching of the judges on Project Runway! Michael Kors is leaving the show, and filling his empty seat is celebrity-favorite Zac Posen, who took Twitter to announce his big news. “So excited to be the new judge on @ProjectRunway Season 11!!” The switch is due to scheduling conflicts that prohibited Kors from being a regular judge. However, this is not the end of Kors’s days on Project Runway. “Michael will be seen in the future on the show and we are excited to confirm that Michael will be back as a judge for season 11 finale,” Lifetime said in a statement. And while Kors’s words of wisdom will be missed—auf wiedersehen for now!—we’re excited to see Posen in action. Project Runway returns to Lifetime on January 24th at 9/8c.
