Andre Leon Talley, the former Vogue editor, has quit his judging role on the hit reality show America’s Next Top Model. Talley only joined the show last year, but he brought a big change, introducing a winner’s prize of an Italian Vogue cover shoot. He is to be replaced by The Hills star, Kelly Cutrone.
Executive Producer Ken Mok told People Magazine he wished Andre well for the future and that he was fun to work with and “an amazing asset to the America’s Next Top Model” show.
Cw network sources have already confirmed that Talley will be replaced by The Hills’ star Kelly Cutrone, who owns fashion PR company People’s Revolution. Last year, Kelly starred in her own reality show Kell on Earth, and later worked as a correspondent for the daytime talk show ‘Dr Phil’.
Cutrone says she’s always been a big fan of America’s Next Top Model, having watched it for a long time. She also pointed out her experience in various aspects of the fashion industry and said she was excited by the prospect of bringing a new perspective to the long-running and popular show.
America’s Next Top Model is currently screening cycle 17, the All-Stars version. This will be the final cycle for Andre Leon Talley and Kelly Cutrone will join them for cycle 18.
Are you excited to see what Kelly Cutrone can bring to America’s Next Top Model? Does she have the fashion model credentials to judge and mentor the contestants?
