Zac Posen will be the new featured judge on "Project Runway," filling the chair Michael Kors sat in for the show's first 10 seasons.

Posen called the role "an amazing opportunity" and said he hoped to give a new perspective to the competing designers.

Kors isn't "out" - as host Heidi Klum likes to say to contestants who get kicked off the fashion reality TV show.

His schedule didn't allow a commitment, but he will come back as a guest judge for the season finale, according to a statement for Lifetime TV.

Another twist to the revamped "Project Runway" is that contestants compete as teams instead of individuals.
