So long, Twiggy.

Hello, Paulina Porizkova.

That's the message sent out by the producers of Amerca's Next Top Model, as a change to the judging panel has been made due to scheduling conflicts. Twiggy will be vacating her post next year.

"We are thrilled to have Paulina as a part of this cycle's judging panel," America's Next Top Model executive producer Ken Mok said in a statement. "The show and participants will benefit a great deal from her vast modeling knowledge and expertise."

Don't worry, fans: Miss J. Alexander and photographer Nigel Barker will be sitting on either side of Tyra Banks at the judges' table next year, as usual.

"We would like to thank Twiggy for her great contributions to the show," Mok said. "Having an icon like Twiggy lend us her considerable expertise has elevated our show to a whole new level. We wish her well in her endeavors and hope to collaborate with her in future Cycles of America's Next Top Model as well as other projects."

Porizkova appeared on Dancing with the Stars last season, but was voted out early.
