Heidi Klum rocks leopard and stripes after Karlie Kloss is announced as her replacement on Project Runway

It was announced on Wednesday that Karlie Kloss would be replacing Heidi Klum on Project Runway after 16 seasons. 

And the German-born supermodel appeared in great spirits as she arrived at the America’s Got Talent set at the Pasadena Civic later in the day.

The 45-year-old showcased her chic style as she strutted into the NBC studios wearing a combination of stripes and leopard print.

Heidi opted for a button-up leopard shirt that she left untucked. 

She teamed the look with a pair of white and rust colored trousers that drew attention to her long lean legs. 

The mom-of-four added to her 5’9″ statuesque height with a pair of matching leopard print platform heels.

And while she appeared in high spirits with her latest role, she recently let go of her longstanding Project Free TV hosting duties after 16 seasons.  

Heidi departed the Bravo show earlier this year after salary negotiations led her heading to Amazon to host a similar fashion show that combines content with commerce. 

Supermodel Karlie Kloss, 26, will be taking over Heidi’s former role as host and will also executive produce.

‘As someone who grew up watching Project Runway, I could not be more excited to host and produce a series that provides a platform to aspiring American designers as they pursue their creative and entrepreneurial dreams,’ said Karlie in a statement. 

‘I am equally as thrilled to work alongside an incredibly talented group of fashion innovators — Brandon Maxwell, Elaine Welteroth, Nina Garcia and Christian Siriano — to inspire, support and help guide these designers as they realize their visions and build everlasting brands and businesses.’ 

Designer Bradon Maxwell and former Teen Vogue Editor In Chief Elaine Welteroth will replace designer Zac Posen as judge.
