Bravo's Project Runway is staffing up.
The series has tapped supermodel and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss as its host, with former Project Runway champion and CFDA fashion designer Christian Siriano as mentor for the rebooted franchise. They will be joined by fashion designer Brandon Maxwell and former Teen Vogue editor in chief Elaine Welteroth, who will serve as judges. Nina Garcia will return as a judge.
Kloss, who will also exec produce the series, takes over as host from Klum, who also exec produced and served as a judge. Siriano replaces mentor Gunn. Maxwell and Welteroth replace Zac Posen as a judge. Klum and Gunn exited Runway in September following a salary renegotiation that saw the Emmy-winning duo, who have been with the series for all its previous 16 seasons, eventually exit for a lucrative fashion show for deep-pocketed streamer/retailer Amazon.
