SHOW: Project Runway
DATE: September 21
Black River Entertainment recording artist KELSEA BALLERINI is joining Project Runway as a guest judge tonight, Thursday (9/21). The young style maven is quickly becoming known for her headline-worthy “Best Dressed” red carpet looks and trendsetting must-have wardrobe on and off the stage.
Sitting among the high-fashion panel of elite season 16 judges Nina Garcia, Heidi Klum, and Zac Posen, Ballerini will appear on the sixth episode of the season titled “Models Off Duty” to lend her red-hot style critiques alongside fellow guest judge and Marchesa founder, Georgina Chapman.
The “Legends” singer last shared the spotlight with Posen when she was honored as the featured entertainer for the 2017 Symphony Fashion Show hosted by the Nashville Symphony at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville, TN, this spring. Posen was not only the featured designer for the star-studded 12th annual event, but dressed Ballerini in a jaw-dropping shimmering cornflower blue gown of his own brand.
About Kelsea Ballerini: Named among the “30 Biggest Albums of Fall” by Entertainment Weekly, GRAMMY nominee Kelsea Ballerini has released her first heart-melting anthemic single “Legends” off her highly anticipated sophomore album, UNAPOLOGETICALLY, slated to drop November 3. The Black River Entertainment artist skyrocketed to stardom after releasing three consecutive PLATINUM-certified, #1 smashes from her critically acclaimed, GOLD debut album THE FIRST TIME – “Love Me Like You Mean It,” “Peter Pan,” and “Dibs” – making her the only female artist in Country music history, including female duos and groups, to achieve this accolade. The talented singer-songwriter also reached GOLD with Top 5 hit “Yeah Boy,” after having written or co-written all 12 songs on her debut. Ballerini has appeared on the cover of Billboard Magazine’s GRAMMY preview issue, was included in Forbes’ “30 Under 30” class of 2017, and featured in People Magazine’s “Beauty at Every Age” list in their iconic World’s Most Beautiful issue for 2017. She’s been named “The Country Sweetheart” in People’s elite “Ones to Watch” portfolio, praised by Rolling Stone as the “Nashville It Girl,” touted by Billboard as “Country’s Next Queen,” and selected as one of CMT’s Next Women of Country. After her 2016 headline THE FIRST TIME TOUR – which visited dozens of cities across the U.S. and included sold-out shows in her hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee; Minneapolis, Minnesota; New York City; Los Angeles; and more – Ballerini joined Thomas Rhett for his HOME TEAM TOUR and is heading to the UK for the last leg of Lady Antebellum’s YOU LOOK GOOD WORLD TOUR. Awarded Billboard’s “Rising Star” honor at the prestigious 2015 Women in Music event, she has continued to gain recognition by scoring her first-ever ACM Award win for New Female Vocalist of the Year, iHeartRadio Music Award for Best New Country Artist, multiple Radio Disney Music Awards, and the American Country Countdown Award (ACCA) for Breakthrough Female of the Year. Ballerini is vying for Female Vocalist of the Year at the 51st Annual CMA Awards airing live from Nashville on November 8 on ABC.https://www.countryschatter.com/2017/09/fashion-forward-country-star-kelsea-ballerini-to-guest-judge-project-runway-tonight-sept-21/Photo ReleasePress ReleaseTV AppearanceBest Dressed,Dibs,Georgina Chapman,Heidi Klum,Kelsea Ballerini,Legends,Lifetime Network,Love Me Like You Mean It,Nina Carcia,Peter Pan,Project Runway,Twitter,Zac Posen
