New York Post‘s Page Six is reporting that André Leon Talley may be vacating his judging chair on Tyra Banks’ America’s Next Top Model. And who could possibly fill his large (he’s 6′ 7″) and fabulous shoes? Why, Kelly Cutrone, of course.
Talley has been on the show for four “cycles”; he replaced model Paulina Porizkova. Huffington Post wonders whether Cutrone has “got the right fashion cred” for the job, but really, the show is less about fashion and more about runway shows and turning it on for viewers, two things that Cutrone definitely has experience with.
More shocking than whether Cutrone gets chosen is the fact that ANTM has been on the air for 17 seasons.
Update: The Hollywood Reporter says it’s official! Kelly Cutrone is joining ANTM for the series next “cycle.” Congrats!
