Top Model demotes Miss J to mentor, adds Andre Leon Talley as a judge

Tyra Banks continues to shake up the judging table at Top Model dumping Miss J as a judge and adding André Leon Talley, who’s a Vogue contributor and “one of the fashion industry’s most influential style-setters,” according a CW press release.

That confirms part of a gossip report that said Miss J would be demoted, but it also said Kimora Lee Simmons would be the new permanent judge. Last year, the panel featured rotating guest judges.

In the press release, which also names the contestants and guest judges (including Whitney Port), J. Alexander says in a totally bullshit press release quote, “After cycles of watching the girls not get it right, I thought they would benefit more from my ‘high heels’ and hands-on approach than my sitting in a chair judging their photos.”

And also, Tyra said so.
