After a 16-month hiatus, Project Runway sashays back to our screens with a new Thursday, 10 p.m. slot on Lifetime.  OK! had a chance for a quick chat with the show’s mentor, Tim Gunn, who was kind enough to answer our Three Questions.

Why did Nicole Kidman join Project Runway as a guest judge?

She’s one of the reigning royal figures in Hollywood, so we were thrilled to have her on the show in any capacity.

How tough are the challenges?

The more constraints on the challenge, the more creative the designers need to be.

What made Victoria Beckham a good judge?

She was extremely articulate about her point of view. She really understood who the [designers] were at their core.
