Kerry Washington, our favorite on-screen political fixer, has her sights set on Lincoln Center this summer.
The Scandal lead and cover girl will be joining Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn, Nina Garcia, and Zac Posen as a guest judge on the season 12 finale of Project Runway. The episode, which famously chronicles the finalists’ first bow at New York Fashion Week, will be taped on Friday, September 6 in front of a star-studded audience and a pensive
Olivia PopeWashington watching each designers’ every move.
Though Washington is best known for scripted roles, she apparently goes way back with the authorities on Lifetime’s top reality competition. She filled a seat on the Project Runway judging panel during season six in 2009, then again during season nine in 2011 (you know, the years when we tuned in for Michael Kors’ famous quips). That coupled with her growing fashion profile—a Vanity Fair cover and Met Gala date with Vera Wang to boot—certainly equip her for the role.
The finale will also feature cameos from Paris and Nicki Hilton, Alyssa Milano, former Miss USA Nana Meriwether, and style expert Jeannie Mai. The bad news: said episode won’t hit the airwaves for at least another eight weeks. We guess we’ll settle for Scandal reruns until then.
Details on the Season 12 finale of “Project Runway”:
There is no “I” in “TEAM” but there is in “FASHION!” Project Runway’s Season 11 returns with a twist that throws 16 eager designers into a panic when they discover they will be participating in the series’ first-ever TEAMS EDITION. This season, the controversial “team challenges” are taken to a whole new level when the designers must work together for every challenge while ensuring their own garments stand out on the runway to host and judge Heidi Klum, Marie Claire’s Fashion Director Nina Garcia and featured judge, award-winning fashion designer Zac Posen. The game-changing new element will push designers to work collaboratively but who will be a team player and who will throw their teammates under the bus? Tim Gunn, will, once again, serve as the mentor to the designers, as they sew their way to New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center where Michael Kors will serve as the finale guest judge. -
