Rumor has it that Tyra Banks and new America's Next Top Model judge Kelly Cutrone may be bringing in bloggers or internet personalities for the next, 19th cycle of the show. Cutrone is replacing Andre Leon Talley, and longtime cast members Jay Manuel, J. Alexander and Nigel Barker are out as well. With all this change, we're dying to know if they're going to completely reformat the show.
Cutrone told Fashionista in a recent interview, “If they bring bloggers on, I think it’ll be relevant to a huge audience. Most fashion houses seem to think so; they’re putting bloggers in the front row.”
Could it be? Page Six reported, “We hear producers are looking to add a social media slant to the show, and they’ve already reached out to bloggers and fashion insiders with a strong Web presence, including street-style blogger BryanBoy.”
- Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist: He's got a great eye for photography and has never shied away from letting his opinion be known.
- Tina Craig from BagSnob: She's smart, eloquent and has phenomenal taste, not to mention she's a former MTV Asia VJ, which gives her credible experience in the fashion and media industry.
- Anna Dello Russo: We would tune in for her outfits alone, but her experience as an editor of Vogue Nipon, as well as her personal blog and twitter account make her a perfect judge and personality for ANTM.
Who would you want to see replace the original cast on ANTM? Do you think bloggers would do well as judges?
