Jennifer Lopez might have been forced to skip “Project Runway’s” season five finale due to a foot injury, but the hit reality design show will return in 2009 on Lifetime with Lindsay Lohan sitting in the guest judge’s chair for the season premiere.
Access Hollywood has learned that the actress will help the judges decide whose fashion is fiercest for the show’s first episode on its new network.
The 22-year-old actress, who has been in New York recently shooting episodes of “Ugly Betty,” filmed the premiere episode on Thursday.
A source told Access the tentative premiere date for “Runway” on Lifetime is Jan. 20, while the season five finale airs Oct. 15 on Bravo.
In taking her seat in the judge’s chair, Lohan joins a long line of A-list stars who have lent their fashion sense to the show, including Victoria Beckham, Natalie Portman and Sarah Jessica Parker.
