Cutrone, the People's Revolution fashion publicity company head who appeared on MTV's The Hills and The City before landing her own Kell on Earth reality series on Bravo last year, will take Talley's place for the reality modeling competition's upcoming eighteenth edition, People reported.

"I am a huge fan of America's Next Top Model and have watched the show for years," Cutrone told People.

"Having worked in various aspects of the fashion industry over the course of my career, I am excited for this new opportunity and hope to bring a different perspective to the show."

Reports first surfaced on Tuesday that Cutrone may be replacing Talley -- who joined America's Next Top Model's judging panel four seasons ago for the show's fourteenth edition -- after Top Model's currently-airing all-stars season concludes.

"I had a great ride and will always consider my experience with Top Model one of the best moments of my life," Talley, a Vogue editor, told the magazine. "Tyra is an incredible role model and I learned so much sitting next to her through four cycles."

"We have greatly enjoyed working with Andre Leon Talley and he has been an amazing asset to the America's Next Top Model family," Top Model executive producer Ken Mok added. "We wish him all the best in his future endeavors."

While Top Model creator Tyra Banks and fashion photographer Nigel Barker have both been part of the show's panel since its second season, numerous others have filled the remaining two seats over the years -- including Janice Dickinson (Seasons 1-4), fashion stylist Nole Marin (Seasons 3-4), Jane magazine editor Eric Nicholson (Season 3), fashion icon Twiggy (Seasons 5-9), and former supermodel Paulina Porizkova (Seasons 10-12).

A series of guest judges replaced Porizkova for the show's thirteenth season.
