Brooke Shields said she felt like an "amateur" when she guest-judged Project Runway in the company of Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia, Tim Gunn, and Michael Kors. "They have got it so down," she said at Longchamp's 60th anniversary in the Soho store last night. "Then I realized there's a certain pacing to it and I figured it out." She said she taped the spot over two days for eight hours each day. "I was surprised at how long and how emotional it was," she added. "I thought I would be more on the periphery, and they actually involved me on a much deeper level, and I felt truly engaged in both my criticism and my approval and whatever I had to say about the designers. It felt like it got personal, and I tried to keep it professional." Might she reveal details on this emotionally fraught challenge? "I don't want to ruin it, but there was something to do with the fashion taste — it had to be incorporated into Lipstick Jungle in a certain way." Sounds like the Sex and the City challenge from last season. We can't wait. —Tina Peng
