New York, NY (CNS) – If there’s anyone who knows a thing or two about fashion, it’s the fashion guru himself Tim Gunn. The long-time fashion “Project Runway” mentor is now stepping up to the ultimate fashion test — he will be a judge on “Runway’s” finale.
Jennifer Lopez had been booked to be the guest judge for the finale for quite some time, but due to a foot injury had to cancel at the last minute. So the host of the show, Heidi Klum, has announced that they have asked Gunn to step up and sit in the judge’s chair.
Celebrity New Service has learned that Gunn is thrilled to fill the chair, which last season went to Victoria Beckham. Part of Gunn’s happiness comes from the fact that for five seasons on the show he has never had a chance to judge, but instead has just worked as a mentor to the budding designers.
Gunn, whose fashion knowledge is vast, said he promises to be unbiased while sitting in the judges seat.
