Karl Lagerfeld is going to be DELIGHTED - Project Runway has a new host. For the upcoming All Stars edition of the show, longtime host Heidi Klum has been replaced with supermodel – slash – actress Angela Lindvall.
Lindvall was one of the late nineties/early noughties supers, who was best known as an all-American, freckly, girl-next-door type who was able to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and on the runway for Victoria’s Secret as well as in campaigns for Fendi, Chanel, Versace, Prada, Valentino and Louis Vuitton and covering mags including Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Vogue and i-D. She has also made a name for herself as an actress (although less of a name, admittedly, with roles in movies like ‘Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang’ and ‘Murder World’)

As well as Heidi, her fellow judges (Michael Kors and Nina Garcia) are also set to be replaced by Isaac Mizrahi (designer and US TV personality) and Georgina Chapman of Marchesa (who happens to be married to Harvey Weinstein, the show’s exec producer).
Project Runway All Stars is a bit like Celeb BB, in that it brings back a host of names it made famous to begin with, who are asked to compete, again, only with tougher challenges and bigger egos. AMAZING.
