Supermodel Karlie Kloss will be the new face of Bravo’s Project Runway since Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn stepped away from the show. Bravo released a trailer for the new season where Karlie takes the helm.
The 26-year-old will be joining Christian Siriano, who will fill the role of mentor and designer, Nina Garcia, who returns as judge along with Elaine Welteroth and Brandon Maxwell. Christian knows a thing or two about the show, he took home the win on Project Runway’s fourth season.
“In the world of fashion, nothing’s more important than what’s next,” Karlie says in the trailer.
“This March, all runways lead to Bravo,” Christian tell viewers of the reboot. The trailer also reveals that the new show will be bigger, brighter and bolder than previous seasons. That remains to be seen.
After 16 years with the show, Heidi and Tim announced their departure in September with plans to create a new show for Amazon.
“After 16 incredible seasons, I am saying ‘Auf Wiedersehen’ to Project Runway, a show that I was honored to host and help create,” Klum said in a statement. “I am incredibly proud of the show, and it will always have a special place in my heart. I am so appreciative of the dedicated fans, and most of all, I am grateful that we could shine a light on creativity and help launch so many talented designers’ careers. I’m most excited that my journey with my dear friend and colleague, Tim Gunn, is far from over. We will be partnering with Amazon for a new show, and we’re excited for everyone to see what we’re designing next!”
The new season of Project Runway with Karli Kloss premieres in March.
