Vanessa Simmons Snags New Show!



Looks like Vanessa Simmons’ Pastry days are paying off!

The fashion designer turned actress is now the host of Lifetime’s new reality-competition show, Threads. From the producers of Project Runway, Threads will take the premise of its predecessor and add a fun, new twist.

According to the press release, Threads is a competition series showcasing America’s most talented young fashion designers. Each week, three new contestants pull out their scissors, sketchbooks and skills to see who can out-design the competition and set the new standard for the future of fashion. Challenges will be fast-paced, unpredictable and far from child’s play as these nascent fashion powerhouses compete for a prize package worth $25,000, including $10,000 to be used at any Jo-Ann’s Fabrics & Crafts store or, a scholarship to the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles and a top of the line sewing and embroidery studio courtesy of Brother International Corporation.

Alongside Vanessa, the show will feature judges Christian Siriano (Project Runway Season Four winner), Seventeen Fashion Director Gina Kelly and Accessories Editor Jasmine Snow, and YouTube style guru Ingrid Nilsen (@missglamorazzi, 2.5 million subscribers).

Special guests this season include Kelly Osbourne, Zendaya Coleman and Jaime King.

As of right now, it has not been announced when Threads will premiere.
