PHILIPP PLEIN INTERNATIONAL announces today that designer Philipp Plein will make his American television debut on the highly anticipated reincarnation of “America’s Next Top Model” premiering on Monday, December 12th at 10:00 PM ET/PT. The new season returns to the show’s roots in New York City, featuring an all-female cast of aspiring supermodels. Plein will appear on two episodes during the season as a mentor, coaching the contestants to help them win the coveted prize.

"I am very excited to be part of the new ANTM program. It has been a landmark TV show for both the American and worldwide audience. I had such a great time filming it with my friend Rita Ora, who performed at one of my fashion shows, and with the rest of the cast. As we are focusing on developing our brand and business in the US, ANTM is a great platform to expose a brand like Philipp Plein to a fun and fashion conscious audience." – PHILIPP PLEIN

Singer, actress and entrepreneur, Rita Ora will host the reinvented show with supermodel and body activist Ashley Graham, Paper Magazine Chief Creative Officer Drew Elliott and celebrity stylist and image architect Law Roach serving as panel of judges. Tyra Banks and Ken Mok will continue as executive producers with Banks set to make surprise appearances throughout the season.

VH1’s ‘America’s Next Top Model’ preserves the DNA that viewers have come to know over the course of 22 cycles, yet the franchise has evolved to appeal to a new audience and reflect the modeling industry today.
