When André Leon Talley joins America's Next Top Model as a judge, he'll be replacing "Miss" J. Alexander, according to Women's Wear Daily.

Talley has decided to join the modeling competition show now that it's established. Tyra Banks had asked him to join at the start of series. But he declined.

"At that point, I said no because it was the beginning. I was thinking I wanted to see where it goes," said Talley, Vogue's editor-at-large.

Now that the series has 13 successful cycles under its belt, Talley feels he can "contribute something to it that had not been on the show" for its 14th cycle (premiering March 10). He has signed on for three cycles.
