Kelly Cutrone to Replace André Leon Talley on America's Next Top Model
André Leon Talley will not return to America's Next Top Model for cycle 18.
The Vogue editor-at-large came on board in early 2010 and will be replaced by fashion publicist and reality TV veteran Kelly Cutrone, who has appeared on The Hills Bravo's Kell on Earth.
"I am a huge fan of America's Next Top Model and have watched the show for years," says Cutrone, the owner of People's Revolution. "Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show."
No reason was given for Talley's departure, but there are no hard feelings, either. He says:
"I had a great ride and will always consider my experience with Top Model one of the best moments of my life. Tyra is an incredible role model and I learned so much sitting next to her through four cycles."
