Published September 14, 2015

Michelle Obama is set to appear on Project Runway Junior and help judge the next wave of budding fashion designers. Saying that the first lady knows a thing or two about style would be the understatement of the year as she continues to impress with her varied fashion choices that mix affordable pieces with designer brands.


According to Variety, the FLOTUS will serve as a guest judge in the Project Runway spin-off that pits 12 teenage designers ages 13 to 17 in a competition for a full scholarship to California’s Fashion Institute of Design and Marketing. In addition, the winner will receive $25,000 to launch their collection.

Obama will appear in the episode scheduled to air Dec. 10 and will challenge contestants to create a design for LandsEnd.com. The challenge will also support the FLOTUS’s Let Girls Learn worldwide initiative.
