As fashion director at Marie Claire, Nina Garcia already had a pretty sweet gig going. Then she gets picked to judge alongside Heidi Klum and Michael Kors in the panel for this little fashion reality show called Project Runway and is catapulted to celebrity. Now, in Garcia's latest venture she will appear on an episode of the CW's new dramatic series,'The Beautiful Life' . Set to premiere on Sept. 16th, the series focuses on life as a struggling model in New York City. Apparently Garcia landed the cameo when an executive producer for 'Life' contacted Marie Claire's editor in chief, Joanna Coles. Coles reportedly "thought it would be great for Nina" to appear on the new series and so the fashion director of the mag spent two days in downtown New York filming. Other familiar names to appear in the show include Mischa Barton, Elle Macpherson, and Sara Paxton. No word yet on whether or not Garcia's role on the show will become more permanent but after Project debuts this week, we're guessing we won't mind a regular double shot of Nina!
