Whitney Port's heading back to the small screen! The City star will join Elle Macpherson, Julien Macdonald, and Tyson Beckford on Britain & Ireland’s Next Top Model for their seventh season. Shortly after her Whitney Eve NYFW runway debut next week, she'll be flying out to the U.K. for a few months to begin filming. The designer said, "I'm thrilled about this new opportunity in my career, and I am honored to have been asked to work alongside industry icons who I truly respect and admire. I've worked as a judge before, but I am especially looking forward to this particular role because it's based around the thing in life I'm passionate about; fashion."

But, um, doesn't this all sound a WEE bit familiar? Her former People's Revolution boss Kelly Cutrone announced that she'd be joining the America's Next Top Model judging panel back in September. This is PR at work, people! Top Model will be airing on Sky Living, the SAME channel as Rihanna's reality fashion show. Um, is this officially our cue to move across the pond or what? Tempting!
