Sharpen your scissors! "Project Runway" is back with a brand new group of aspiring designers for its 13th season, premiering Thursday, July 24 at 9/8c.
One past designer will get a second chance in the workroom with the return of #RunwayRedemption
. Kicking off a one-of-a-kind season-long partnership with Instagram, fans can cast their vote on RunwayRedemption.com
for the "Instaportfolio" of one their favorite designers from previous seasons: Ken Laurence (Season 12, @kenlaurence
), Alexander Pope (Season 12, @alexanderapope
), or Amanda Valentine (Season 11, @valentines
). The victorious designer will be revealed in the premiere episode to compete against 18 "Project Runway" newbies. Each designer will have to make a lasting impression on judges Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, and Zac Posen and mentor Tim Gunn in order to advance to the next level. But no decision is ever final: Tim Gunn will have one opportunity to rescue a designer from being eliminated.
On deck to act as guest judges: Emmy Award winner Julie Bowen ("Modern Family"), Golden Globe winner Elisabeth Moss ("Top of the Lake," "Mad Men"), Shay Mitchell ("Pretty Little Liars"), Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn, entertainer Dita Von Teese, British television personality Amanda de Cadenet, designer and "Runway" champ Christian Siriano, YouTube sensation Bethany Mota, and many more.( Collapse )SOURCE
