Michael Kors' 'Project Runway' seat going to Zac Posen

Michael Kors has been a voice of sartorial reason on "Project Runway" for almost a decade, but Zac Posen is poised to step in for the famed fashion designer next season.

"So excited to be the new judge on @ProjectRunway Season 11!!" Posen tweeted Tuesday, adding that he'll be joining "Runway" regulars Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Tim Gunn.

According to reports, Posen will be a "featured judge," meaning Kors isn't gone for good. His schedule prevented him from being able to sign on to season 11 wholesale, but he is expected to return for the season finale.

Guest judges for season 11 include Miranda Lambert, John Legend, Bette Midler, and Joan and Melissa Rivers. Fans will also see appearances from designers Rachel Roy, Tracy Reese, Chris Benz and "Runway" alum Christian Siriano.

Season 11, which will apparently feature designing teams, will kick off January 24 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.

    Somebody is trying to pull fast one. The real evel kinevel died several years ago. Hope you two come to grips with who youbare and keep banter on track with story you are commenting on. I dislike trying to read comments and have to read though a personal war between 2 people to get to some intelligent comments. Thank you for letting me have my minute to vent. Now I will look for a more suitable site and story to read comments about

    I don't know how you could. Seriously, I'm not Charlie. I am the real "Evel". I've posted here since late 2010. I started off posting as "Steven Seagal" but eventually settled on "Evel Knievel". If you know my name, tell me how many letters are in my first name. Give me a way to contact you outside of here and we'll talk.

    How about some short, plump women who design clothes for same?
    Tired of skyscraping skeletal boy/thing models and the 'designers' who make 'clothes' for them.

      Who cares? Both genders are capable of sick designing....and it just so happens that gay males hold the candle. And I happen to love it.

    I have a feeling this isn't the first time someone has come in behind him and taken Michael's "seat."

      I hate to tell you this, but you don't have my email address. Not the real "Evel Knievel". Now someone may have trolled you into thinking you did, but it wasn't me. I'll tell you that I am the real "Evel" though. Of course, if you have something you want to send me, I'll gladly take it, although I'm not posting my email here.
