Models of the Runway Models of the Runway

We've met the Project Runway designers, but now it's time to meet their models, who will also be starring in their own companion series, Models of the Runway.

Meet the designers of Project Runway Season 6

Lifetime announced the 16 models who will work it on the catwalk in hopes of getting paired with the winning designer. The women range in height from 5-foot-8-inches to 6 feet tall (models dare not share their ages), and hail from such places as Israel, Japan, Singapore and Venezuela.

The new series gives audiences a behind-the-scenes look at Project Runway, only this time from the models' perspective. And the last leggy lady standing wins a $25,000 cash prize from L'Oreal Skin Genesis and a fashion spread in Marie Claire magazine

Models of the Runway premieres Thursday, Aug. 20 at 11 pm/ET following Project Runway's Season 6 premiere.
