As Bravo's fifth season of
Project Runway arrives, get ready to say "guten tag" not only to the most diverse group of contestants yet, but also to a cavalcade of all-star guest judges whose backgrounds span music, fashion, sports and more.
Kicking off July 16 at 9 pm/ET, the new season's coterie of guest judges will include a little something for everyone. Joining Michael Kors and Nina Garcia at the judges table will be a lineup that features couture icons like Diane Von Furstenberg and Cynthia Rowley, music maven LL Cool J (who, of course, likes his fashion from "around the way"), stylist-to-the-stars Rachel Zoe, pro ice-skater and Dancing with the Stars alum Apolo Ohno and model/actress/mom Brooke Shields, just to name a few.
With such a stellar list of guests to start with, are there any you think should have a seat with the judges? (Yes, swapping is allowed in faux-casting.) - Anna Dimond
