Guest judges, including Lauren Conrad, will replace fourth Top Model judge

Fired judge Paulina Porizkova will be replaced on America’s Next Top Model by a weekly guest celebrity judge, including modeling expert Lauren Conrad and supermodel Kim Kardashian.

A CW press release says the show “welcomes guest judges from the fashion community during cycle 13′s search for America’s Next Petite Model,” a reference to its search for short girls.

It lists 10 guest judges, including Conrad and Kardashian, but also some actual models, such as Chanel Iman, Josie Marin, Jaime Rishar, and Kirsty Hume. Seventeen editor Ann Shoket will also judge.
