Zac Posen to Join Project Runway.
Posen announced on Tuesday he is "so excited to be the new judge on @ProjectRunway Season 11!" He later tweeted, "It's going to be quite the season."
Posen will replace Michael Kors, who will sit out this season due to scheduling conflicts. But Kors isn't leaving the show altogether: he'll rejoin the judges' panel as a guest during the season finale. Heidi Klum, the show's executive producer, tweeted "I will miss you this season my brother @MichaelKors I love you!" before welcoming Posen to the team.
Posen, who has been a guest judge on the show in the past, called the job "an amazing opportunity. I hope I'm here to give a new perspective to the designers."
The new season of Project Runway debuts on Jan. 24, but it won't be the only place Posen will appear on TV next year. His Spring 2013 runway show was filmed for an episode of the new modeling reality series The Face.
