Los Angeles, CA, United States (CNS) – Nicole Richie is set to appear on the season premiere of the reality competition show “Project Runway” as a guest judge. The 28-year-old socialite is the first of celebrity guest judges lined up for the show’s seventh season.
Show executive producer Sara Rea told People, “Nicole is a fabulous guest judge. She has strong opinions and gives clear and specific constructive criticism to the designers. Also, she isn’t afraid to disagree with the other judges.”
Richie taped her episode appearance last summer before she gave birth to son Sparrow in September. She is the latest star to appear on the show. Last season, celebrity judges included Christina Aguilera, Eva Longoria Parker, Lindsay Lohan, Rebecca Romijn, and Cindy Crawford.
The seventh season of “Project Runway” will premiere January 14 on Lifetime.
The “Simple Life” star is not new to fashion. She has her own line, Winter Kate, and a jewelry collection, House of Harlow 1960, both named after her daughter Harlow Winter Kate Madden.
