Ciao!, Roberto Cavalli, Margherita Missoni, Diane von Furstenberg, Cynthia Rowley, and Zac Posen.
Arrivederci, same old "America's Next Top Model."
Seems Tyra Banks and company have added a little Italian fashion seasoning in the judge department to spice up Cycle 15 of the long-running CW modeling competition.
Banks has already invigorated interest in the revamped, Milan-themed season, which premieres Sept. 8, by severing long-standing ties with Seventeen and offering this season's winner a photo shoot for Italian Vogue. Say "formaggio" girls!
Then the supermodel/producer got the new cycle even more look-at-mia attention with a "misconstrued" promotional clip (watch it above) that features Banks gushing over a rail-thin contestant who just may have the "world's smallest waist."
Tyra has since apologized and said she never saw the shocking clip before it went viral.
Now, word comes that Banks has secured some serious fashion experts to critique this season's model wannabes. People reports that the sartorial superstars include Cavalli, von Furstenberg, Posen, Rowley, "Sex & The City" costumer Patricia Field as well as models Missoni and Karolina Kurkova.
Returning to the cast will be last season's addition and "dreckitude"-loathing judge, Vogue editor André Leon Talley, who no doubt has helped Banks raise the show's profile. Also in, resident judge and fashion photographer Nigel Barker.
We're sure Barker won't be offended by the guest appearances of famed fashion photographers such as Matthew Rolston, Patrick Demarchelier, and Francesco Carrozzini for shoots with the cast of 14 models.
Naturally, Vogue Italia Editor-in-Chief Franca Sozzani will also be on hand to give an approving nod to her future bellissima cover girl.
