Meet Your Project Runway Season 9 Top 20

Get ready for another season of trying to make it work under a major time crunch, designers, because Project Runway has officially announced the top 20 contestants for season 9. Yes, 20! In only a matter of weeks, we’ll not only have the same backstabbing, uber competitive drama, and breathtaking talent that has characterized the show’s run thus far, but there’s a bit of a twist. Instead of the show’s typical 16 contestants, we’ll have an additional 4 would-be designers vying for a shot to show Heidi, Michael, and Nina their stuff.

If they make it past the brutal opening episode cut, they’ll have the chance to fit, sew, and cinch their way to some pretty terrific prizes. If the hardworking designers want to make it that far, though, they’ll not only have to impress the regular members of panel, but also the bevvy of guest judges, including Christina Ricci, Malin Akerman, Zoe Saldana, and Kim Kardashian, among others.

In preparation for season 9’s premiere on July 28th, Lifetime has released profiles of each of the top 20, containing questionnaires, home visit videos, portfolios, and work samples. You can check everything out below and form your early favorite in preparation for the premiere.
