Elle MacPherson and Liz Hurley battling to front UK Project Runway.
Project Runway is making the leap overseas, and two supermodels are battling it out to be able to say “auf wiedersehen” to departing designers.

Elle MacPherson and Liz Hurley both want the job. According to a source quoted by the Daily Mail, “the programme makers were set on hiring Elle.
