So Tyra Banks is still recovering from her recent flub of seemingly glorifying a wannabe contestant with a nonexistent waist for her show, America's Next Top Model. But despite Banks' snafu, the insanely popular series is charging forward stronger than ever into its 15th cycle (I first turned it on back in cycle 2, and have been hooked ever since). The show has already gained notoriety for its revolving door of panel judges, having already gone through industry vets Janice Dickinson, Twiggy and Paulina Porizkova, and most recently introducing Vogue editor at large Andre Leon Talley last cycle. This cycle, they'll blow the top off the term "guest judge" as name after fashion legend name will take a seat next to Tyra.
So who can we expect to see belittling the contestants this time? The lineup has, as People notes, "a distinctly Italian flair". Designers Roberto Cavalli, Diane Von Furstenberg, Patricia Field and Zac Posen all try their hand at judging, as do photographers Matthew Rolston, Patrick Demarchelier, Francesco Carrozzini; models Karolina Kurkova and Margherita Missoni ; and fashion experts Kyle Hagler of IMG Models and Franca Sozzani, editor-in-chief of Vogue Italia. What do you get when you throw in a dash of designer, pinch of photographer and measure out a few spoonfuls of supermodel? One deliciously decadent ANTM season! The drama kicks off again on Sept 8 on the CW, so make sure to tune in!!
