Season nine of Lifetime's "Project Runway" is ready to hit the runway with 20 fresh faced designers making it work for the chance at an editorial feature in Marie Claire, an exclusive collection opportunity on Piperlime.com, a $50,000 HP and Intel suite to start their business and $100,000 in cash. Mentor Tim Gunn, host Heidi Klum and judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia return to guide these fashion hungry designers through to Bryant Park. The premiere episode features Christina Ricci as a guest judge. Watch out for Kim Kardashian, Zoe Saldana and Malin Akerman later this season.
"Project Runway" premieres Thursday, July 28, at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
