‘Top Model’ shuffles judges

Paulina Porizkova joins show's panel

CW’s “America’s Next Top Model” is playing musical supermodels, replacing one icon with another as the show preps its 10th edition.

Paulina Porizkova, the 1990s supermodel who was named one of People’s 50 Most Beautiful People twice, has joined the panel of “Top Model” judges. She replaces 1960s supermodel Twiggy, who had been with the show since its fifth cycle in September 2005.

According to the CW, Twiggy departed the show “due to scheduling conflicts.” But the “Top Model” judging panel regularly experiences turnover; before Twiggy, the self-billed “first supermodel” Janice Dickinson spent four editions as a judge.

Twiggy never offered the same sort of larger-than-life performance that Dickinson did behind the judging desk; “Top Model” exec producer Ken Mok nonetheless thanked Twiggy for “her great contributions to the show.”

“Having an icon like Twiggy lend us her considerable expertise has elevated our show to a whole new level,” he said.

Joining Porizkova at the judge’s table will be host Tyra Banks, as well as fashion photographer Nigel Barker (a judge since cycle two) and runway coach J. Alexander (a staple of the show since its launch but a full-fledged judge since cycle five).

A model since age 15, Porizkova has modeled for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Elle and Self, among other publications. She’s also appeared in films such as “Her Alibi” and “Arizona Dreams.” She recently appeared on “Dancing With the Stars.”

Banks, Mok and Daniel Soiseth exec produce “America’s Next Top Model” for 10 by 10 Entertainment and Bankable Prods.
