Lifetime reveals 'Project Runway' and 'Models of the Runway' models

Lifetime has revealed the identities of the models who will appear in Project Runway's sixth season and the show's new Models of the Runway companion series.

Models of the Runway will premiere Thursday, August 20 at 11PM ET/PT -- immediately following Project Runway's sixth-season debut in the 10PM ET/PT timeslot -- and give viewers a look at the competition through the eyes of the young women who were tasked with modeling each Project Runway designer's fashions for the show's judges. 

In addition to getting to model the winning designer's clothing in their Marie Claire magazine photo spread, the model who finished the competition paired with Project Runway's sixth-season winner also won a $25,000 cash prize.

Lifetime began developing Models of the Runway in April 2008 -- two weeks after the network and The Weinstein Company first announced their five-year, 10-season deal to bring Project Runway to Lifetime from Bravo beginning with the reality series' sixth season.

However due to the legal limbo Project Runway found itself in after Bravo's NBC Universal parent company sued The Weinstein Company, Models of the Runway was also delayed until the two parties and Lifetime resolved the legal dispute surrounding Project Runway's rights this past April.

The 16 models featured in Project Runway's sixth season and competing on Models of the Runway's first season are:

- Celine Chua, who is originally from Singapore and currently resides in New York, NY

- Ebony Jointer, who is originally from Bellflower, CA and currently resides in Hacienda Heights, CA
