Five-time Grammy winner Faith Hill recently took a break from recording her upcoming album in Nashville to fly to New York City and participate as a guest judge on the season finale of Lifetime’s hit reality series, Project Runway. Hill flew into New York City on Wednesday, February 10, just in time for the massive snowstorm that had just dumped more than a foot of snow on the city to film the Project Runway finale.
Hill attended the finale fashion show on Friday, February 12, along with Project Runway host Heidi Klum and judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia. After seeing ten Runway designers’ collections, Hill, Klum, Garcia and Kors went to an undisclosed location in the city, where the judges’ deliberations were filmed and a winner for season 7 was chosen.
“What I saw was truly extraordinary and it made judging very difficult,” Hill says. “Designers, by trade, are always capable of sewing their own clothing, but the tailoring that I saw was extremely impressive; a few in particular knocked me out. The passion that these individuals showed, and their eagerness to learn from feedback and criticism, should prove an inspiration for those that follow them.“
“Faith Hill stepped into the toughest Project Runway guest judging seat of the season — the finale, which made her a deciding voice in naming the winner,” said Runway Executive Producer Sara Rea. “She took on the task with flying colors.”
