In the news: Iman to host Project Runway Canada

Lee-Anne Goodman of the Canadian Press talks to Iman, the host of Project Runway Canada:

  • Onetime supermodel Iman host of ‘Project Runway Canada’
    “It’s a really a good opportunity to be on a show that’s in a genre that’s not salacious – I’m not keen on salacious television,” she says. “I really do like the format of ‘Project Runway USA’ because it really is about finding talent and nurturing talent. There’s no meanness. The critiques are constructive and the judges are designers and really know what they’re talking about.”
