Lindsay Lohan lands a new project, a guest judge on U.S. TV style contest "Project Runway." She will sit in with show host Heidi Klum and designer Michael Kors on the series' sixth season premiere episode next year, Access Hollywood reports.
Lindsay, who has been in New York City recently shooting episodes of ABC's "Ugly Betty", reportedly has filmed the premiere episode on Thursday, September 18. Klum's singer hubby, Seal, confirmed to US Weekly at the 60th Anniversary of Israel "From Vision to Reality" event in Hollywood that the new season of "Project Runway" began filming Thursday. "She is filming tonight. She is working," he told the publication of his supermodel wife. "She is in the first day of Project Runway and they are behind, so she could not make it."
Lindsay's upcoming stint on "Project Runway" makes her the first A-lister to sit in the guest judge's chair when the hit reality design show airs its first season premiere on Lifetime Television January 20, 2009. The series' season five finale airs October 15 on Bravo TV.
Lindsay's "Project Runway" debut was announced days after Jennifer Lopez pulled out of a scheduled guest judge spot for its season five finale. Initially scheduled to shoot the episode last Friday, September 12, the actress-singer was forced to cancel her appearance due to foot injury. She was then replaced by fashion consultant and television personality Tim Gunn.
