Kelly Rowland is out of fashion

Kelly Rowland: you’re out.

Bravo has refashioned the upcoming second season of “Project Runway” replacement show, “The Fashion Show,” and has decided to hire a new co-host who has actually worked in fashion.

Nothing against former Destiny’s Child member Rowland, who hosted the first season of “The Fashion Show,” the show where newbie designers compete for a fashion line and a cash prize of $125,000. Rowland is a fashion plate, to be sure, but the show clearly needs to beef up their first season’s less than stellar numbers; so it makes sense to get someone with a fashion-rich background.

And the new woman who’ll be co-hosting alongside designer Isaac Mizrahi? Legendary supermodel Iman.

“I am so excited to be joining the Bravo team and to be working again with Isaac Mizrahi, my close friend of many, many years,” Mrs. David Bowie said. “I am also looking forward to all of the behind-the-scenes excitement and drama that is generated through the creative process of these undiscovered fashion designers.”

    THANK YOU.

    Jasmine,

    This isn't a race issue, sweetheart. I'm all for "some Brazilian talent", but why don't you SUGGEST some, then we can have an intelligent conversation...?

    It's kind of odd to have Kelly Rowland as a host of this show, but in fairness I kind of like the show itself and just laugh a little with the way Kelly does her "job".

    I feel bad for her though because I believe that she's got talent in music. How I wish she can make like a total, major, like big deal re-launch as a music artist and get out of that Beyonce-back-up-shadow. I'd be happy, I love it when underdogs win in the end! :)

    Looking forward for a better fashion show season... :)

    Someone with a ghettofabulous name lie "Jasmine" has nerve to call someone else ghetto? And what talent do you have my dear besides twirling around and sliding down a silver pole? Obviously you have no knowledge of the fashion industry. If you did, you'd know Iman is one of the most beautiful, talented, global supermodels ever. And she will make a great addition to this show. So slow your role "Jasmine" and beat it to the bank to cash in all of last night's singles that got stuffed in your G-string.

    @Jasmine, "They're getting rid of one ghetto girl, and putting another in her place?" Are you trying to say that all black women come from the ghetto? Don't make this a racial issue when there is none. Project Runway is correct in getting someone with more experience and Iman is a great choice. The only thing that Kelly Rowland was great at was being a backup singer in Destiny Child, nothing else. Before that, she was unheard of. So my advice to you is keep your prejudice opinions to yourself and move into the 21st century!!

    They're getting rid of one ghetto girl, and putting another in her place? They better tap some beautiful Brazilian talent or the show wouldn't make it for a 3rd season!

    Oodoodanoo, her name is Iman, not "Imam," and she is not a "he. " And what difference does it make what the word "Imam" means. Her real name is not even"Imam."

    This is the BEST choice. Kelly is not a good host at all Iman is a great decision and she is gorgeous!! Now, if they would just get rid of that Camila girl from Sheer Genius.

    Kelley Rowland was a poor choice to begin with and insulting to pair her off with a fashion Icon as Mizrahi.
    The young lady had no exposure or knowledge of fashion and it was a lazy pick that reflected on the shows numbers.

    Iman also has the experience from "Project Runway Canada." I wish she could use her line from that show: "Fashion isn't always... pretty."

    Wow... now that will be worth watching!!! IMAN is an amazing and striking beauty. I've seen interviews with her and look forward to seeing that dignified, elegant (to borrow a phrase from project runway) FIERCE-ness on THE FASHION SHOW.

    Now let's hope with the upgrade in co-host ... granted the other one is not all that much better than Kelly so why not reboot the WHOLE show ... that they upgrade the contestants. Less caricature and more talent.

    That is what made PR a hit in the beginning and less of one now with all its cartoonish baffoonary... (Who knows if the last word is a word)
