Fashion gang on point

Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie have been tapped to join the judging panel on Heidi Klum's new fashion competition series.

The German stunner and fashion guru Tim Gunn quit their longrunning show Project Runway last year (18) to embark on a new venture with bosses at streaming service Amazon, and now they have revealed the first promotional photos for Making The Cut.

According to producers, the reality TV contest "will bring together 12 talented entrepreneurs and designers from around the globe who are competing to take their fledging brands to the next level in becoming the next big global phenomenon".

Clothing creations from the show, set to premiere in 2020, will be made available for direct purchase on the Amazon e-commerce site, with the overall winner of Making The Cut receiving a $1 million (£788,000) investment in their brand.

British supermodel Campbell and socialite-turned-designer Richie will take seats on the panel of judges, alongside former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris Carine Roitfeld, and luxury designer Joseph Altuzarra.
The foursome appear in the first-look shots posing in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, where contestants recently filmed their first runway challenge.
Campbell also serves as a consulting producer on the series, which is co-executive produced by Klum and Gunn. (MT/DL/JBG)
