Tory Burch to Guest Judge Project Runway
American sportswear designer Tory Burch, whose eponymous fashion label launched in 2004, is the latest style icon -- her famous fans include Cameron Diaz, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Lopez, Uma Thurman and Hilary Swank -- to lend her expertise to the Project Runway judges' panel.

But unlike the guest judges who've come before her this season (Lauren Hutton, Nicole Richie), Burch will judge a unique challenge -- the designers will have to make clothes for kids on this week's episode, which airs Thursday (10 p.m. EST) on Lifetime.

"Tory is such a successful designer because her collections, for girls and their moms alike, are both aspirational and accessible," Runway's executive producer Jane Cha tells PEOPLE. "Tory's a mom herself so we were glad to have her guest judge this particular challenge. The kids were adorable, as Tory agreed!"
