Kelly Cutrone is coming back to reality TV!

The New York City-based fashion publicist and former Hills and Kell on Earth mainstay will replace Andre Leon Talley on America's Next Top Model starting with Cycle 18.

"I am a huge fan of America's Next Top Model and have watched the show for years," the owner of People's Revolution, 45, enthused to Us Weekly in a statement Wednesday. "Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show."

She'll take over for Vogue's editor-at-large Talley, who appeared on the judges' panel alongside Tyra Banks for the past three seasons.

"We have greatly enjoyed working with Andre Leon Talley and he has been an amazing asset to the America's family," the show's executive producer, Ken Mok, says. "We wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

Cutrone's first appearance on Top Model will air sometime next spring.
