IRINA SHABAYEVA MAKES FASHION'S 'IT LIST' AS SEASON SIX WINNER OF LIFETIME AND THE WEINSTEIN COMPANY'S HIT SERIES RETURNS TO THE BRIGHT LIGHTS OF NEW YORK FOR SEASON SEVEN ON THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, WITH HOST HEIDI KLUM, MENTOR TIM GUNN AND JUDGES MICHAEL KORS AND NINA GARCIA

Season Two of Companion Series, MODELS OF THE RUNWAY, To Premiere Immediately Following PROJECT RUNWAY

New Seasons Mark First Time Ever Hit Unscripted Series Will Be Available In High-Definition; All Future Installments of Both Shows to Be Shot in HD

Los Angeles, CA (November 19, 2009) � After showing a city-warrior inspired, 13-piece collection at Bryant Park during Fashion Week, Irina Shabayeva has been named the winner of Season Six of Project Runway and her model, Kalyn Hemphill, earns the coveted title of last model standing on Models of the Runway. Beating out fellow designers Carol Hannah Whitfield and Althea Harper, Shabayeva was praised for her masterfully crafted, modern and sleek looks by host Heidi Klum, judges Michael Kors and Nina Garcia and guest judge, international fashion journalist Suzy Menkes, to claim the top spot. Shabayeva walks off the Project Runway catwalk with a $100,000 cash prize furnished by L'Oreal Paris, a trip to Paris from Evian and a fashion spread in Marie Claire Magazine's February 2010 issue. Joining Shabayeva for the feature spread will be Hemphill, who also receives $25,000 from Garnier Skin Genesis.

Recently nominated for its first ever People's Choice Award for TV Competition Series, Project Runway, will return to the Big Apple for Season Seven, premiering on Thursday, January 14, 2010, at 10PM ET/PT. With the guidance of mentor Tim Gunn, the new crop of designers head back to Parsons and Mood and set out to prove they have the creative and couture chops that will impress Klum, Kors and Garcia or face being "auf'ed." Season Seven, filmed entirely in New York, will feature influential guest judges from the worlds of fashion, film and television. Season Seven also marks the first time the show has ever been shot and distributed in High-Definition (HD). All future seasons of Project Runway and Models of the Runway will also be shot and distributed in HD, where available.

Immediately following Project Runway, Season Two of Models of the Runway, will air at 11:00PM ET/PT, beginning January 14, 2010. Each 30-minute episode gives fans a behind-the-"seams" look at the reality competition � from the models' perspective. Next season, tensions will run high when loyalty is thrown out the window by the designers when choosing their models. With more game play and unprecedented model swapping, who will make it to the finale at Bryant Park?
